THE AKGUS, WEDNESDAY, JUL.Y 12, ISUZ.
Brings comfort and improvement and
tends to personal enjoyment when
ritrhtly used. The many, who live bet
ter .than others and enjoy life more, with
less expenditure, by more promptly
adapting the world's test products to
the needs of physical being, will attest
the value to health of the pure liquid
laxative principles embraced in the
remedy, Syrup of Figs.
Its excellence is due to its presenting
in the form most acceptable and pleas
ant to the taste, the refreshing and truly
beiieficial properties of a perfect lax
ative ; effectually cleansing the system,
dispelling colds, headaches and fevers
ana permanently curing constipation.
It lias given satisfaction to millions and
met with the approval of the medical
profession, because it acts on the Kid
neys, Liver and Rowels without weak
ening them and it is perfectly free from
every objectionable substance.
Syrup of Figs is for sale by all drug
gists in 50c and $1 bottles, but it is man
ufactured by the California Fig Syrup
Co. only, whose name is printed on every
package, also the name. Syrup of Figs,

The County Board Moves for a
New Court House.
TO BE FORMALLY VOTED ON.
A 1 moral) Report by the Committee Ap.

Cieneral Klectlon Necessity I-'or h New
Hulltling -All Glory to the Hoard of
The Kt ck Island county board of
supervisors is ail right. It so. re
corded itself yesterday in its action
regarding the proposition of build
ing a new court house. At the last
session of the board. Supervisor Joe
l'itzpatrck, of Milan, introduced a
resolntif n for the appointment of a
committee to report on the cost, etc.,
of a new -building. As stated hy
Tiie Aim. i s at the time, the commit
tee was thoroughly in sympathy with
the necessity for such a move, and
accordingly made its -recommendation
for a structure t; cost l-.o.0'.)0,
as shown by the oiiiciai record. Fol
lowing this up. the board be it said
to that body's credit caught the
progressive spirit or the times, and
yestcrdi v adopted the recommenda
tion of the committee that the coun
ty clerk le instructed to take the
necessary steps to have it voted upon
by the people at the next general
Necessity for n New Court House.
For several years past the necessity
for a new county court house has
been a matter of comment by both
resideir s here and visitors to this
city. Not alone is the present struc
ture an eyesore from an architectural
point of view, but it is utterly untit
for the purpose. Dark and dreary
and built for occupancy when the
county had but little " business to
transact, it has long ago outlived its
usefulness. A few years ago it was
found i ecessary to do something to
provide more room for the increas
ing business, anil instead of facing
the (jut stion of a new building which
should have been done the
present county court building
on oi e corner of the square
was erected. Under the pres
ent arrangement it is neeessarv
to run nit in the rain or weather (if
any kind with books or papers which
are being transferred from one ollice
to another, and there is no system or
convenience in the matter whatever.
Both Mercer and Warren counties
are now building court houses, which
will le ive Rock Island t he only conn,
ty in this judicial district without a
new (lie. Every resident of the
count ought to feel a -ertain pride
in the county institutions and doubt
less does, so that the action of the
board will be commended bv resi
dents f all parts of the county, who
have i s welfare at heart. It "is not
a matter of city pride alone, but the
whole county is interested. Rock
Island has as good a name and stand
ing as any other county in the state,
and si ould have a court house to
grace it th.it will be in keeping with

A Swift Motor Car on the Tower Line
Summer Outing Trains.
Motor No. 00 of the Tower line, is
the fa-stest in the three cities It is
a dou')le motor, 30-horse power, open
ear, and has made the run from the
Tower to the Harper house in 1C
minules, whereas the regular time is
30 minutes. The distance is four
miles, which gives the ear the speed
of a mile in four minutes. An in
teresting feature about No. 00 is that
it has only 30 inch wheels. there being
but two motors on the system with
wheels of that diameter. The stand
ard is 30 inches, which size wheels
were used on the two open motors
last s immer. This season, however,
President Loudorback ordered a
trial of .'it) inch wheels, as with the
large" size the cars were rendered so
high as to involve great inconven
ience in getting on and off. There
was some fear felt that with the
smaller wheels the cars would not
make the schedule time, but 00 lias

Tic- discovery may result in small

A standard of 30 or 33 inches would
make the steps much lower and con
sequently better for the public and

Opening Day at the Davenport Mite Truck
The opening day of the Davenport
Mile Track races was attended by an
immense outpouring of tri-city peo
ple. The track was in excellent con
dition, and the lield of horses pre
sented, excellent in all respects.
Otto's orchestra enlivened the occa
sion with delightful music. One
cause for complaint and criticism
which it is hoped may be remedied
before another dav.was the tall grass
inside the track which prevents an
obstructed view of the track, com
pletely obscuring the horses on
the first quarter. The grass should
be mowed down.
Col. Park McManus and Max D.
Peterson, of Davenport, and J. S.
Gil more, of Rock Island, were the
judges, while A. Kiburz, of Monti
cello, Arthur Burrall, of Rock Island,
and Charles Noel, of Davenport, ofli
ciated in the capacity of time-keepers.

It is given out upon good authori

horseman, will enter suit against the
Rockford Driving club for $1,000, the
amount of the purse offered in the
special race between Guy and Wis
consin King at the late race meeting.
The club claims it was distinctly un
derstood that the horses were to
beat the track record of 2:12, or re
ceive no money. This was an
nounced from the judges' stand and
printed on the bills. It is under

A Registered Letter Causes Inquiry A
Ed. Foster is a colored individual
who, until a short time since claimed
Rock Island as his abiding place.
While here he had some business
transactions with Ferdinand Holdorf,
who runs the saloon at 1316 Third
avenue, the outcome of which was
that Foster left the city indebted to
Holdorf to the tune of some $55.
After he went away, a number of let
ters directed to him in Holdorf's care
were forwarded to him by the latter.
On Friday last there came a regis
tered letter to Foster in care of Hol
dorf's address. It was delivered
there by the carrier and Holdorf reg
istered for it. This letter was not
forwarded to Foster, who today put
in an appearance and demanded his
his letter, which contained $75.
It so happened that this morn
ing Holdorf reported to the po
lice that about 8 o'clock while he was
away and his bar-tender was for a
moment out of the Saloon the till was
tapped and the registered . let
ter addressed to Foster, be
sides $10 in cash and a bull
dog revolver taken. Holdorf there
fore, told F'ostcr that he had
been robbed, and consequently could
not pay him, but was willing to give
him $25 and call the account between
them square, thus releasing Foster
from what he owed. The latter re
fused to accept anything, but his reg
istered letter and "applied to the pst
ofliec, and investigation showed that
the letter was properly receipted for
by Holdorf, who is accountable for
its safe delivery to Foster. Holdorf
was accordingly notified that he must
produce the money without delay as
the postollice hail nothing to do with
his former transactions with Foster
or what had now become of the let
Lost His Orip.
W. J. Reed arrived in the citv yes
terday and put in the day using the
telegraph wires looking for some bag
gage he s.ays he lost in Chicago. Mr.
Reed states that he was in the Rock
Island depot in Chicago and was al
most ready to board his train and
wished to step outside a minute and
inquired of a lady if she was going
west on the liock Island. She re
plied that she was going to Wichita,
Kas., and he then asked her if she
would watch his baggage a moment
until he came back. She consented
to do so and he went out, returning
a few moments later to find both
ins baggage anil the woman
missing. Getting on the tram
and going through he found
her. Upon being asked about the
baggage she replied that she left it
in the depot and did not have time
to watch it. He could not lind it
and so came down on the train as far
as here. After reaching here he con
cluded that the woman had his grip
under her dress in the seat and so
telegraphed the depot master at Kan
sas City to have the woman searched.
In the grip Mr. Reed says are three
return tickets to Oakland. Cal., and
other valuable articles. No trace of
the missing grip has yet been re
ceived. Kock River Presbytery.
