Special to Times-Republican.
Council Bluffs, Feb. 1.—Five people
In 'the family of Mr. and Mrs. William
ItigglTie, were poisoned In some man
ner as yet unknown, and It is feared
all of them .nif.v die. The sick are
Mr. and .'Mrs. Higgins, their infant
daughter, aged 3 years 0. H. Hickman,
father of Mrs. Higgins. and George
Boyd. Rlckman and Boyd are board
era. Hickman and Boyd left the liouse
shortly after breakfast, and went to
their work. They were taken -sick a
few hours later and. hastened home,
where they were astonished to find
the other members of the family
•writhing in pain, some of them upon
the beds and the little girl upon the
floor. Boyd managed to alarm a
neighbor who sent for City Physician
N. J. Rice. He administered to the
sick, but not knowing the exact cause
of their illness did not succeed in re
lieving, them until opiates were given,
and it was thought for a time that all
•would' die before tliey had taken ef
Mrs. Higgins, during moments of
consciousness, told the city physician
she thought they had been poisoned
by oatmeal eaten at breakfast. The
paper package from which the meal
had been taken was examined, and a
.hole was found in one corner. The
marks on the paper clearly indicated
that there had been by a mouse gnaw
ing thru it The mouse had evidently
crawled Into the package and prob
ably had msuSe numerous incursions.
In the absence of any other indications
of a cause for the illness of the house
hold, the meal is believed to have
been the source of the poisoning.
It is claimed the box containing the
nieal was broken in the manner de
scribed when it reached the house from
the grocer, but no serious consequen
ces from the use of the meal were
thought of by Mrs. Higgins. J. A.
ICirk. the grocer from whom the meal
was bought, said he sold the meal, but
that it was from a box containing a
number of sealed packages, and that
'dt had been in the store about a week.
The packages were not removed from
box, but the box was set upon a
"shelf and packages were taken from
it as they w.ere sold. Mr. Kirk said
he believed the .package sold to Mrs.
Higgins was unbroken, altho -they were
delivered by .wagon, and he thought
possibly one of them might have been
broken In transit.
•Neighbors of the family bitterly as
sailed the physicians of the city. They
claimed that tli£ sick people were
neglected aaid that of seven physicians
called to attend them not a one re
sponded until an insistent demand was
made by them. The city physician
called once and he supposed the regu
ar family physician would follow him.
While in midenate circumstances the
family is well able to pay for the
services of a physician and the neigh
bors are unable to account for the al
leged negligence.

Rein beck People Shocked by Andrew
Sloss' Suicide at Appleton, Minn.
Special to Times-Republican.
Reinbeck, Feb. 1.—Nothing has
shocked this community so much for
a long' time as the suicide of Andrew
Sloss, a successful banker of Apple
ton, Minn. Mr. Sloss was a former
Reinbeck boy, having grown to man
hood on a farm near here. He has been
engaged in'business in Minnesota and
South Dakota for many years, and at
the time of his death was interested
in seven banks. His financial affairs
were in excellent shape, and the only
explanation which can be given for
the rash act Is that the strain of the
past few months had temporarily un
balanced his mind. Mr. Sloss was an
unusually good citizen and an exem
plary man in every -espect, all of
which makes his tragic end more in
explicable and the shock greater
•where he was so well known.

Hoone, Fob. I.—A tine vein of coal,
siul to be one of the finest In this part
of the state, has just been discovered

The drillers have been busy of late

the entire territory between Boone and

ty of coal and that this portion of the
state will within a short time become
the greatest coal region in Iowa.
The drilling operations have been
under way for the past three or four

causes. At a deptli of IMO feet yes-I self

from a depth of 300 to 3.10 feet. When

•morning at 10 o'clock. Burial was at
Riverside cemetery, Rockford, Iowa.
Saturday in order that his life might
not be further endangered. He is now
reported to be getting along as well
as could be expected. It appears that
the infection which resulted in blood
poison started from a scratch from a
cocltle-burr, while the man waS pick
ing corn. It developed into a most
dangerous case, and was the cause of a
great deal of alarm among his family
and friends.
A very serious operation was per
formed Friday at the hospital. John
Fahr, son of Henry Falir, of the Dun
kard neighborhood, now IS years of
age, received a kick in the forehead
from a horse 10 years ago which frac
tured his skull. Dr. Bachman, then of
West Bend, treated the case, and feel
ing sure that the boy could not sur
vive, he was not as particular in the
adjustment of the fractured bones as
otherwise he would have been. How
ever, the boy made what seemed a
recovery, but not long thereafter he
began having epileptic fits, recently
became frequent, occurring as often
as three times a day. The operation
disclosed that a fragment of the skull
had pressed down about half an inch
into the brain cavity, but without
breaking the covering of that delicate
organ. The removal of the fractured
bones relieved the pressure, and the
patient has been resting much easier.
A complete recovery is hoped for.

Few People Know How Useful It Is In
Preserving Health and Beauty.
Cost Nothing To Try.
Nearly everybody knows that char
coal is tho safest and most efficient
disinfectant and purifier in nature, but
few realize its value when taken into
the human system for the same cleans
ing purpose.
Charcoal is a remedy that the more
you take of it the better it is not a
drug at all, but simply absorbs the
gases and impurities always present
in the stomach and intestines and car
ries them out of the system.
Charcoal sweetens the breath after
smoking, drinking or after eating on
ions and other odorous vegetables.
Charcoal effectually clears and im
proves the complexion, it whitens the
teeth and further acts as a natural and
eminently safe cathartic.
It absorbes the injurious gases which
collect in the stomach and bowels: it
disinfects the mouth and throat from
the poison of catarrh.
All druggists sell charcoal In one
form or another, but probably the best
charcoal and the most for the money
is in Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges: they
are composed of the finest powdered
Willow charcoal ,and other harmless
antiseptics in tablet form or rather in
the form of large pleasant tasting loz
enges, the charcoal being mixed with
The daily use of these lozenges will
soon tell in a much improved condi
tion of the general health, better com
plexion, sweeter breath and purer
blood, and the beauty of it is, that no
possible harm can result from their
continued use, but, on the contrary,
great benefit.
A Buffalo physician, in speaking of
the benefits of charcoal says: "I ad
vise Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges to all
patients suffering from gas in stomach
and bowels, and to clear the complexion
and purify' the breath, mouth and
throat I also believe the liver is great
ly benefited by the daily use of them
they cost but twenty-five cents a box

Escape Coughs
during the winter months.
They cannot be avoided, but
can be promptly cured if
taken at the start. It's tho
neglected cough that does the
damage—the cough that is al
lowed to take its own course
A cough is pretty sure to go
from bad to worse unless
checked, and checked prop
erly at that. A silenced cough
is not always a cured cough.
White Pine Cough Syrup
silences a cough as it should
be silenced—by loosening it
and removing the inflamma
tion that causes it. A safe
and remarkably effective
cough remedy for children of
any age or for adults. Guar
