Why Salves Fall While a Simple Liquid Has Accomplished Thou sands of Cures. It is now thoroughly established among the beet medical authorities that eczema is purely a skin disease, due to a germ, and curable only through the skin. It is not a blood disease at all in fact, thousands of people suffer with skin disease and are perfectly healthy otherwise, and there by prove they have no diseased blood. Smeary salves cannot reach the germs because they do not ppnetrate the skin. The only way to reach the germs Is by means of a penetrating liquid. Such a liquid can be obtained by simply mixing ordinary oil of winter green with thymol, glycerine and other healing agents. This compound, known as D. D. D. Prescription, stops the itch instantly—and the cures all appear to be permanent. In fact, it took thousands of cures, case after case, before the best scientific authori ties were convinced of the absolute merit of this remedy. D. D. D. Pre scription kills the germs in the itching skin. Its effect is seen within one minute after the first application. We especially recommend D. D. p. Soap in connection with the treatment.

Deafness Cannot be Cured by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There Is only one way to cure deafness, and that Is by constitutional remedies. Deafness Is caused oy an Inflamed condi tion of the mucous lining: of the Eustach ian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or Imper fect bearing, and yrben It Is entirely closed. Deafness la the result, and unless the Inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condi tion, hearing will be destroyed forever nine cases out of ten are caused by Ca tarrah, which Is nothing but an lni.amed condition of the mucous surfaces.

ROCK ISLAND TIE CHANGE No. 420, the Rock Island Train From St. Paul to Arrive at Burling ton at 7:10 in the Morning. AN AGREEABLE CHANGE No. 12 Will Arrive on Time After April 18th Much to the Grati fication of the Mer chants. At last the south bound line train which is due to arive each morning at 8:40, will be on time, or at least after the 18th of the present month. This will mean good news to Keokuk mer chants who have become used to wait ing during the past six months until 10:30 for the distribution of Chicago mail brought down each morning on No. 12 if the Rock Island train was not more than hour late and 12 waited for connections at Burlington. Following is the latest from this morning's Burlington Gazette in re gard to the change of time of the Rock Island train known as No. 420 and which has been the cause of all the delay for the past several months: The Rock Island will put the new time card into effect on the Minneap olls-Burlington division on April 18. According to advices received at the local offices there will be one most im portant change. No. 420, which is known as the St. Louis Southeastern Special, will be abolished and No. 22 will take its place, arriving at Burlington on the -old time, 7:10 a. m. This new train will leave Minneapolis earlier than be fore and the schedule will give No. 22 more time to make the long run. so that it is expected to make schedule time every day in the year. With the new No. 22, another train goes into service to be known as No. 20. This will be a Chicago train, leav ing Minneapolis two hours earlier than No. 22 and will relieve No. 22 of all eastern business. This will mean a decided improve ment in the service and is demanded by the increased traffic over the Rock Island lines. That 420 was never on time was due to the fact that the one train was unable to handle all the business. The ntew time card, how ever, provides two trains and there is rejoicing all over the line as the re sult.

Two Killed and Several Injured. PITTSBURG, April 6—Two boys were killed, and seven others badly hurt here today in a street car acci dent on the South Twenty-Second street incline. The cause of the ac cident is a mystery. When the car was nearly half way up the incline there was a sudden jerk, the cable parted, and the car with a load of pas sengers shot down the incline. YOU SHOULD TAKE These symptoms result from indiges tion and'dyspepsia—brought on by im proper eating. If you will merely take a little Koilol, now and then, you can eat what you want—and you will not have any digestive trouble. Kodol digests your food as soon as it reaches your stomach. It does this because it contains every element essential to proper food digestion. Thus you see that Kodol merely duplicates Nature's process, in your stomach, when your, stomach, THE DAILY GATE CITY SEMI-OFFICIAL ELECTION FIGURES If the Returns as Received Last Even ing Are Reliable, Off is Electcd and the Council is .,.. Democratic. HEARING THE NEWS The Gate City Gave Out the First and Most Reliable News Last Even ing to Hundreds of People. The new city council which takes control of the city government on next Monday evening will stand seven dem ocratic aldermen, five republican al dermen and a democratic mayor, pro viding the election returns as receiv ed last evening are proven to be cor rect and honest. Granting that Off has received the three votes necessary to elect him as ma^or, he will therefore have the ap pointment of the police force of the city, v.hich now consists of republi cans. Henry Kesselring was elected marshal by a large enough majority to give him the place even though the election should be contested. In the first ward. John DeYong, re publican was elected. He will suc ceed O. A. Talbott and together with J. I. Annable, republican, will repre sent the ward. In the second ward Patrick Tigue, Jr., has a majority of 42 over Tumelty on the face of the returns. He was running to succeed himself. T. J. Hickey is the hold over alderman from that ward. J. P. Christy In the third ward de feated Publisky by :38 votes yester day and will represent the ward to gether with J. P. Johnson, both being republicans. In the fourth ward the returns show A. J. McCormic- to have defeated Mundy by 87 votes. McCormick suc ceeds himself. The hold over alder man from that ward Is Charles Off, who did not resign Tyhile running for mayor. In case he Is seated as mayor, he will resign and a special election will be called to fill the unexpired term. In case he is not seated as mayor he will hang on to the aldermanic job. In the fifth ward Emil G. Lindstrand was elected to succeed himself defeat ing Lundgren by 69 votes. He is a republican. The holdover alderman is Arthur Swanson, democrat. In the sixth ward, Albert Kiefer, democrat has a majority of 71 on the returns .over J. R. Roberts, republican. H. G. Seeman is the retiring alderman from this ward and Dr. Brown is the holdover. If the official count shows' the same as the returns received last evening, the city council will be democratic and will have power over all city of fices. In case the official count puts Mr. Sterne in the mayor's chair, the coun cil will still be democratiic, but with a republican mayor and police force. The Independent Ticket. Quite a few voters threw away their votes on independent candidates, 270 of. them voting for Henneman for mayor and 75 for Dunlap for marshal. In the sixth ward Loewenstein receiv ed 139 votes. The independent vote for marshal cuts no figure in the result, but for mayor and alderman in the sixt' ward, it made a vital showing and one which cannot be estimated. Had the independent vote for these two officials gone either for the re publican or democratic candidates, the result would have shown a great change. The old city council meets next Mon day evening, at which time the clerk will make his report of the election re sult. The new council will then be sworn in. Hearing the News. There was considerable interest in the result of the election last even ing and The Gate City office, as usual, was headquarters for the news, receiv ing the returns from the various wards first, and giving them out correctly. When the returns were all in but through over-loading or ill-treatment of one sort or another, is unable to do its own work as Nature intended.

Another newspaper which pretended to give the news, gravely announced as a fact that Sterne was elected by 8 votes, but after hearing The Gate City's figures, the accountants got busy, changed their figures around to •the same as The Gate City was giv-, ing out and then cheered lustily. The Gate City's two telephones were ringing continuously all evening long and the office was crowded with peo ple, anxious to hear the news from the closest mayoralty vote ever cast in Keokuk. No Official Figures. There are no official figures yet on the election. All figures given are merely the figures secured by repre sentatives of The Gate City from the election clerks in the various wards. W.hat is known as the official count will be presented by the city clerk to the council next Monday evening. The ballots voted and the election books are sealed up and will not be opened unless those is a contest. The results as given on the outside of the enve lopes are the same as The Gate City's figures, excepting that Off is given one more vote. Money Comes In Bunches. to A. A. Chisholm, of Treadwel'., N.

The trail of deaths and injuries in the Dodge case, which involves the ownership of 400,000 acres of land in this state, began in 1891. In that year Capt. John C. Forsythe, who represented the N. M. Dodge estate, was assassinated. Five men were sent to prison for life for the crime. Soon after this, Luci .s Williams, one of the claimants' attorneys, was killed.
