Urines comfort and improvement and
tend to personal enjoyment when
risrhtly used. The many, who live bet
ter than others and enjoy life more, with
less expenditure, ly more promptly
adapting the world's best 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.
IN excellence is due to its presenting

ant t the taste, the refreshing and truly
bt iicfic-iiil properties of a perfect lax
ative: effectually cleansing the system,
dispelling colds, headaches and fevers
anil permanently curing constipation.
It has given satisfaction to millions and
met with the approval of the medical
profession, because it acts on the Kid

every objectionable substance.

a rather tood looking young lady.
Her folks at first objected strenuously
to their aughter receiving atten
tions from this son of the forest and
tried in different ways to break up
the affair hut both young people
seemed tloronghly infatuated with
each other, and no inducements in
anyway c.iuld separate them. Not
only were persuasive methods
brought to bear on the young lady,
but suddenly she began receiving
marked attentions from another
young man in the neighborhood, who
seemed dc sirious of beating Eagle
Eye's time, but which he failed in
doing. These things, it 1s said,
were brought about by the girl's par

measure to try to discourage the af

LET ALL ATTEND.
TonlRht'H Meeting f the Improvement
Tonight in reponse to President
Jackson's special circular, a special
meeting of the Improvement associa
tion is to be held, and t he attendance
of every member is urgently desired.
The matter of the removal of the
head offices of the M. W. A. from
Fulton to Hock Island, and the Col
umbian park project are the two
most important subjects to be dis
cussed an I concerning both of which
definite a tion is necessary and de
sirable. Our Industries.
The condition of affairs surround
ing the Uock Island glass works
should no' fail of the attention of the
association, and some action should
he taken 1 Hiking to immediate effort
to continue in our midst an industry
of such vast importance to the city.
The association should also give
attention to the Houring mill project
which recently asked shipping facili
ties from the council but so far
has not received such advantages.
This morning, in fact, David Sears
told a citi.cn that he and Mr. John
son had practically determined to
establish their mill at Moline. If
the Improvement association makes
no effort t secure both these indus
tries for Rock Island it might as well
hang up iis fiddle as far as fulfilling
its mission is concerned. Rock Isl
and needs industries as much, if not
more, than anything else now. It is
the association's purpose to secure
and save them.

erenee Terribly Scalded This
uverence, a laundry girl at
er house, met with a terri
ful accident this morning,
her sister, Gussie Lauver-
ence. were carrying a t ub of sealdin"
water and were about to raise it to a
bench, when Ida slipped and fell and
the hot water was poured over her.
She was at once taken to her room,
where Dr. Sala attended her and
found her breast, back and sides
frightfully burned, from the effects
of which she is sufferingexcruciating
pain. Fronithe nature f the burns
the doctor fears internal injury,
though it is impossible as yet to
fully determine the outcome.
A woman giving her name Fidela
Heywood, arrived in the city last
night and put up at the Union house.
To all appearances she had been toy
ing with the flowing bowl and was in
a hilarious state. She was assigned
to a room and was sent to it in
charge of an employee of the house.
The woman displayed some money
and was put to bed, but later made
a lot of trouble by declaring she had
lost her money. She became so
boisterous that she was taken to the
police station by Officer Crompton,
where she remained over night. She
claimed to hail from Lawrence,
Mass., and to be on her way to Cable.
She probably threw the money awav
as she had tried to do so before.

latter, and lost while contained in a

THE FLOATING BETHEL.
The Recently Destroyed Living Hoat at St.
Paul The Local Project.
The Floating Bethel of St. Paul
which recently burned, being one of
the stations of the Western Seamen's
Friend society, and being also the
model from which the directors in
this locality would design the float
ing Bethel at this port, the editorial
reference to the matter in the Pio
neer Press may be of interest here:
A rcat Misfortune.
The burning of the Bethel boat is
a misfortune that has other conse
quences than the terrible tragedy
which accompanied it. In this, as is
natural, the public attention has been
absorbed by the loss of life which
has overshadowed and dwarfed all
lesser issues. And this is right. But
now that the inevitable has been ac
cepted and sad hearts mourn their
dead, a world that must needs care
for the living turns to the practical
side of the situation ouce more.
What is to be done with and for the
great charity which has done so much
for the poor and struggling in St.
Paul? Is this splendid work that has
been built up at so great a sacrifice
by the untiring devotion of unselfish
men and women, to suffer loss by the
calamity that has fallen upon it? Is
this to mark its decadence, or shall
it progress to a new usefulness and a
It has been sadly crippled. It was
only after many years of earnest ef
fort ami public appeal that the man
agers of the Bethel succeeded ir. ob
taining the equipment that they de
sired for the furtherance of their
plans. Since their boat was finished
and they had suitable quarters for
their undertaking, they have been
busied night and clay in ways that
tell for the advancement of the com
munity. A large part of it is igno
rant of the practical results of their
labors, hut those who have watched
with a sympathetic interest have
been amazed at the great and grow
ing field tilled bv this useful philan
thropic effort. It must no.t be al
lowed to suffer check or loss by this
great reverse. We say, in all sin
cerity, that it will be as great a loss
to St. Paul to have the business of
the Bethel interfered with as to lose
one of its promising business es
tablishments, the misfortune oc
curs at a most unfortunate
time. Just when each indi
vidual feels his resources
most severely pressed upon by the
exigencies of commercial depression
the Bethel work needs help. But it
should have it. The appliances
which it has lost should be restored.
Whether it is decided to adopt the
tdd plan or to follow a new one.
whether there is to be a new Bethel
boat or the association seeks quar
ter elsewhere, the means should be
given it to continue in the noble of-
lice that is so pecularly its own. We
cannot spare what it has done for the
poor people in St. Paul. We cannot
miss its helpful and uplifting influ
ence. Out of the terrible calamity
that has fallen upon the human lives
as well as upon the splendid mission
of us promoters, there must open, by
the aid of willing hearts, a new field
of usefulness for the Bethel associa
