The spectators of the meeting form I a picture. On one side of the room sat a half dozen saloonkeepers anx ious to see what was to be done with the saloon question, while on the other side sat three directors of the Y. M. C. A. anxious to see a matter dispos I ed of in which they had an interest. Both committees went home happy, (or the council satisfied each of them. The electric light company was paid I for the lights furnished last month up to the time of the accident and the council did not hold the company to the contract which contains provis ions which would make the company a debtor to the city, if enforced. All of the saloons which asked per mission to run, were given the per mission. Bills Allowed. Tin street light account for October would be $850 for 170 lamps at $5 pach, but on account of the accident, there was a reduction of $594.80 on the bill, leaving but $255.85 due the company. The company was paid for the amount of light furnished up to the accident, although acc t0 the contract, the company could have been held, so that it would have owed] the city.

Currier in the Doctor's Guide, writing about a new and wonderfully successful cure for skin affections. I apply plain pure citrox, dissolved i:-. hot water, twice a day. You who know how stubborn tetter, ringworm and eczema can be, will be amazed to sei how soon this stops the itch ing, dries up the eruption and causes a growth of new healthy skin. I now tell my patients to get a package of pure citrox at the drug store and dis solve a teaspoonful in two tablespoon fuls of hot water, as this solution must be made fresh each time and used warm.

LOUIS Almost All of the Medical Students Who Left Here a Week Ago«« Have Returned and go to St. Louis. Almost all of the medical students who left here a wfeek ago are or will be back in this city again for a day or so stay and are on their way to St. Louis to enter the P. & S. College at that place. The reason for their coming back from Des Moines and going to St. Louis instead of continuing at Drake was stated this morning by one of the student class who left here a week ago. The students who were trans ferred from this college to the Des Moines college by the merger vere dissatisfied with the terms that were held out to them by the head of the Drake University. The work there was altogether different from what the students had been used to here and the requirements for entry were too stiff and the students becoming dissatisfied with the rulings and es pecially the different studies than they have been used to here caused them to act each man for himse lf in the matter and the majority of the medics decided to leave, and go to St. Louis colloge which holds out a much better proposition to the stu dents of the former Keokuk Mellcil College, especially so because they will be given credit for all that they have done at the Keokuk college be fore the merger. The work in St. Louis is also similar to that which was done here by the medics and those that went to St. Louis in the first place are we'll satis fied with the College of Pliyslc'an.i and Surgeons at that place. Those who will remain in jies Moine and are able to meet tha re quirements are five sophomores and two freshmen who will probably fin ish their course at Drake University, Des Moines. About ten of the students who aro on their way to St. Louis are in the city today and many more of the clatses are to arrive in a short t'me and go to the school at Sc Louis. I BOTHER mm How many American women in onely homes to-day long for this I blessing to come into their lives, and I to be able to utter these words, but because of some organic derange ment this happiness is denied them. Every woman interested in this subject should know that prepara tion for healthy maternity is accomplished by the use of LYDIA E.PINKHAM'S VEGETABLE COMPOUND Mrs. Maggie Giimer, of "West Union, S.

L\nu. Muss. The Daily Gate City There will be only a small number of those who went to the Des Moines school from Keokuk be left in Des Moines was stated by one of the stu dents this morning. The dental students will leave Keo kuk for Des Moines on the seventh of this month and it is a question as to whether they will be satisfied with the Drake proposition or whether they will decide to go to some other school. Many of the students, both dents and medics have returned to their different homes over the coun try since the merger and a number of them are yet undecided as to what school offers the best prosopition to them to continue their studies. LOGICAL ECZEMA CURE ENDORSED BY PHYSICIANS After treating eczema for years as a practically incurable bloo ddisease, the medical world is greatly interested In the discovery that it is not a blood disease at all, but is due to a parasite in the skin itself. This parasite is eas ily destroyed by the external applica tion of a compound of oil of winter green, thymol, glycerine, etc., which will quickly kill all eczema germs, while soothing and refreshing the skin. R. A. Folkerts of Dulutih, Minn., tells of the success with D. D. D. Prescrip tion in treating patients: "There was a man here suffering from Eczema for the last fourteen years, and I applied the D. D. D. treat ment. I also applied it to a man of West Duluth, Minn., who has been suf fering with Rheumatism for fourteen years, and Eczema in his feet, and the second treatment in both cases cleared the skin almost absolutely. I hope that everyone in the world will be able to learn of your grand remedy. hTe first application is only a balm, and its soothing effect is beyond expression. I shall never be without it, and shall use it among my patients altogether." No matter how terribly you suffer from eczema, salt rheum, ringworm, etc., you will feel instantly soothed and the itch allayed at once when a few drops of this oil of wlntergreen compound is applied. The cures all seem to be permanent. McGrath Bros., Fifth and Main. Co. TRADE EXCURSION DURING THIS WEEK Many People Will Visit the City and Also the Keokuk Merchants the Next Few Days.

WASHINGTON, November 2.—It is expected by the officers of the Nation al Rivers and Harbors Congress, which meets in annual convention in this city December 9, 10 and 11, that there will be at least 2,500 delegates in attendance. Interest In this great movement is growing constantly. This congress represents no particular sec tion or project, but is the direct re presentative of all sections that have meritorious claims for the improve ment of a river or a lake, r. harbor or a canal. No limit is placed on the number of delegates to be appointed, the theory of the congnss being to bring together all friends of special river and harbor improvements, to the end that the federal government may adopt a waterways policy that will benefit every worthy project. While the cingress is conservative, and hestitates to extend the scope of its influence, another effort will prob able be made by advocates of the lake to the gulf deep waterways, to convert congress to their way of think| ing. It is pointed out that the platforms of bo^h political parties have indorsed and declared for the improvement of the waterways of the country. This, members of the congress assert, has safe In butter as well as any other line—The butter :nar ket is high—you are paying a good price. You are en- $ titled to the best.

Many conventions are scheduled to meet in Washington the first two weeks of December. The first conven tion, one of the most important, will begin December 4, when the National Conservation Commission, organized at the direction of the president, after the meeting of governors here last spring, meets.- President Roosevelt will deliver an address. The commis sion is divided into four classes. One is a committee of thirteen, whose special duty is the improvement of streams. Another, also composed of thirteen members, is in charge of the preservation of forests. Efforts of a third committee are directed against the waste of land, and the fourth com mittee has charge of mineral re sources. Between 1,000 and 1,500 business men from the south, will be brought to Washington by the Southern Com mercial congress, which will meet De cember 11, 12 and 13.
