IT Christmas lor Why not Serviceable a Clock? ALARM CLOCKS, 75C to $1.50. ,PNCE WAS CLEAN '4 In the Good Old Steamboat Days More Attention Was Paid to the Levee Than at Pres ent Time. Plans should be laid now for a gen eral cleanup and improvement of the river front at Keokuk and all pls£ns laid for beginning the work early next spring and having a presentable ap pearing levee in Keokuk for next summer. Some time ago the Keokuk Motor Boat club started the movement for parking the river front and beauti fying it by the laying of walks, the planting of trees and fixing it up gen erally. With the help of the govern ment, this could be done and the club would no doubt build a handsome boat house in case the levee was fixed up. Now that the boat houses h^vp been removed, the council could order the shanty boat houses removed in the spring and the levee cleared from the lower end of the bridge south. A little work in sodding the ground and the planting of a few trees would work wonders in the appearance of the river front. The only draw back to the scheme is the fact that the river has the bad habit of climbing up out of its banks every spring and it would require the building of a retaining wall in order to make the improvements permanent. A Retaining Wall. It has been suggested that, a re taining wall be built and that the d.-eigings from the river channell, be thrown over the wall to fill up and make the ground level. This scheme would require a considerable expense and probably cannot be accomplished at the present time, but the river front can be fixed up until it is pre sentable, by cleaning it up and keep ing fishermen's shanties and other ugly buildings off of it. Some of the river cities, in fact most of them, take more pride in the river front than does Keokuk, which seems to consider the river as the back yard of the city instead of the front yard. With the increased agitation for riv er Improvement and the prospects of the work on the water power dam next year, Keokuk should turn her eye toward the river more than usual and more attention be given to that border of the city. Years ago, when Keokuk was a ureat. steamboat town, the wharf was kept in fine shape, hut the arrival of railroads and the decline of the steam boat traffic caused the wharf to be neglected. A revival ofj steamboat business being promised, more at tention is being given to the wharfage of the river towns. CASTORS A for Infants and Children. rtie Kind You Have Always Bought Bears the V.cn 3 turo of KING SAYS IOWA 1 IS TOO PENURIOUS Good Roads Advocate From Missouri Takes Shot at Iowa. The well known good roads advo cate from Missouri, D. Ward King, passed through Sioux Citv en route to Grand Forks, N. D., where he will de liver an address under the auspices of the Commercial club of Grand Forks. The good roads situation in Iowa Is quite encouraging, he snvs. In Missouri the King drag movement has advanced to a point, where a number of the road districts are entirely cov ered bv the drag every time rain falls. The road overseer arranges with farmers to drag a certain section regularlv. As the sections join up to each other this plan results in drag ging the entire road system of the dis trict and the highways are kept in fine shape. This Is possible in every road dis trict. In Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, and a number of other states, where the law makes special provision for pay ing the farmers for the dragging, lie says, it. is chief!v a matter of public opinion and the right man, and when a community Is roused to realize i.i' utility and tJie comfort, of the plan the needed man is usually found. Mr. King says that. Iowa is c.oiiK some especially fine work on gravel CANCER 1 send the tnott Vmithinir, »bwlut«ly true testimonial* written, prorint the wonderful cinrir euro« Ihare made with out operation*, daa**r, pain or Porter*.

He thinks Missouri is leading Iowa slightly in organization since its law provides for a highway engineer in each county who is in a measure un der the supervision of the state high way engineer. Of course, the law is still new and does not yet operate as smoothly and completely as it will later, but the one year it has been in force proves its value. Mr. King is indignant because Iowa allows its highway commission to be handicapped by a lack of fun.s. Missouri's highway department, he says, was given for its year's work a sum which is far beyond the amount allotted to the Iowa highway com mission in this, its fourth or fifth year, state Engineer Hill, of Mis souri, on January 1 will turn back to the treasury about $1,000—literally had more money than he could spend. Mr. King feels that Iowa is standing in her own light by tying the hards of her able commission. Mr. King goes from North Dakota clear to Augusta, Me., to fill a series of dates.

There is no necessity to suffer the humiliation, lagrin and discomfort of bad breath, biliousness, sour stomach, gastritis, sluggish "ver, etc., when a little lozenger of charcoal will cleanse the stomach and make it pure and sweet.

Charcoal will absorb one hundred times its own volume In gas. A box full of charcoal placed In a bed room will keep the air of such a room pure and sweet. A little chacoal lozenge dissolved on the tongue after meals will also keep the stomach fresh and clean. Charcoal is justly called the scrubbing brush for the stomach. The old monks of medieval times cured bad cases of stomach trouble, cast out devils from the system of man by feeding such a man charcoal. Scientific men of today believe I the great strength of charcoal for the cure of human ills. Too much cf it cannot harm one. The system craves The Daily Gate City 1 it just like an animal needs and I craves salt every so often. Charcoal goes into the stomach gently and is welcome. It settles down through the action of the stomach, and filters I through all the food, absorbing is, aiding digestion and giving tone to the juices, so that when the food goes into thi intestines, and there meets other digestive fluids, the charcoal holds the impurities and thus keeps them from the blood.

The directors of the Keokuk' Base Ball association do not yet know how the vote will be cast for the present applicants for a berth In the Central association, at the meeting of the league. The vote, according to the statement of one of the directors this morning, will be for the best interest of the league, and the club seeking ad mission will have to show Keokuk base ball men that it can deliver the goods before a vote will be cast in favor of its admission. At present all three cities—Clinton. Hannibal and Galesburg—look good to Keokuk directors. But It will proba bly be decided at the Tuesday meet ing for which club the vote will be cast. The directors feel that a decis ion should not be reached until the various propositions are made by the clubs seeking admission, and then af ter weighing the arguments carefully a vote will be dropped in the ballot box, which will be to the best inter ests of the league. The coming meeting is attracting considerable attention and will be the most important one held by the league for some me. The Keokuk directors will entertain the visitors, but in what manner is not yet known. There has been talk of giving the delegates and others an automobile ride about the city, and it is thought that this plan will be carried out. The meeting will be called to or der Tuesday morning at Hi o'clock by President M. E. Justice and delegates will be present troni Quincy, Turling ton, Galesburg.

Egans of the Burlington base ball club, will be in the city next week. He is coming down from his home in St. Paul to attend the league meet ing at Keokuk and incidentally to have a talk with the local committee concerning his plans for next year. He had advised the committee not to' go out and raise any money on his account, as there was a strong prob ability that he would not be back here next year. He is perfecting his plans for the future and hopes to have them in such a condition as to En lighten the committee of his inten tion. Mr. Egan has suggested the name of Lew Drill as manager of the Bur lington base ball team next year. Drill is a graduate of Haniline and George town colleges and caught for two sea^ sons for the \vashington and Detroit teams. He next managed the Pueblo team in the Western league and last year managed Terre Haute in the Cen tral league. Mr. Egan stated that Mr. Drill might buy him out or rent the fix tures from him, but he would expect, a bonus. The Drill proposition is not a bad one and if it should come to pass that Drill would succeed iJgan here, the town would b.j assured of good base ball next seasQn, He is a young man and has an exceptionally good reputation as a player and a good business man. His wide ac quaintance would enable him to se cure plenty of acceptable talent.
