Eczema Curable? Proven!
Attorney at Mo line, III., Convinced by
Oil of Wintergreen Compound.
There is nothing that will convince
ft lawyer except evidence.
Now, here is some rather startling
evidence of a simple homo euro for
eczema -which convinced one lawyer, F.
C. Emtrikon, attorney at Moline, 111.
He tells how oil of wintergreen com
pound mixed with thymol and glycer
ine, as in D. D. D„ Prescription, cured
him in thirty days after thirty-two
years of suffering.
"For 32 years," writes Attorney En
trlken, "I was troubled with eczema,
ecabs all over my face, body and head.
I could run a hair brush over my body
and the floor would be covered with
scales enough to fill a basket. I tried
evorythlng—salves, internal medicine,
X-Ray—all without result."
"Just a morvth ago I was induced to
try D. D. I). Prescription. The itch was
relieved instantly so I continued. It is
just a month now and I am completely
cured. I ha.ve not a particle of itch and
the acales have -dropped oft."
"I can only say again CURE DIS
COVERED. I am now starting all ec
Eema sufferers on the right itrack."
Cure after cur© has been brought to
our attention and always that instant
relief from the awful itch.

When a patron of the company got
his gas bill and began to do a little fig
uring, Jve found, altho no rate was
specified on the bill, that his gas had
been billed at the old rate. The patron
Immediately went to the office of City
Clerk Derby for information, primarily
I to satisfy himself that the new ordin
ance calling for $1.10 gas was actually
in force on Jan. 1, as he had been led
to believe.
Makes 26 Cents Difference.
This, bill was for 2,800 cubic feet of
gas which, at J1.45, amounted to $4.06.
A discount ot. 70 cents was figured in,
or $3.36 net.
The new ordinance, adopted by the
council, and effective Jan. 1, fixes the
rate for gas at $1.10, without a dis
count of any kind. The isame bill at
$1.10 would amount to $3.08, or a sav
ing to the consumer of 26 cents.
Another patton .was found who had
already received his •bill. This state
ment was for 800 cubic feet or $1.16,
with a discount of 12 cents, or $1.04
net. At $1.10 this same bill would
have been 88 cents, or a saving to the
consumer of 16 cents.
Will Disregard Ordinance.
Superintendent M. W. Hovey, of the
Marshalltown Light, Power and Rail
way company, said 'today, when asked
what position the. company had deter
mined to take, that the gas bills for
January and for the months that fol
low were to be made out at the old
rate of $1.46, with the usual discounts
for payment •before the 10th day of tha
month following the one for which the
bill was rendered.
He admitted that the rate of $1.10,
which, according to the city's new or
dinance, should go into effect Jan. 1,
•was to be disregarded by the com
pany. He intimated that the company
position would be made clearer to the
public in a few days, but refused to
say whether suit was to be brought.
•Mr. Hovey admitted that some of the
bills had been sent out prematurely, it
having been apparently the company's
purpose to render no 'bills for January
until after the suit had been begun.
Attorney Admits Suit Forthcoming.
Mr. T. Binford, of Binford & Farber,
the firm that represents the gas com
pany, was a?ked this afternoon wheth
er or not he knew if the gas company
Intended to charge the old rate of $1.45,
and ignore the new city ordinance es
tablishlng the $1.10 rate.
Mr. Binford replied that he did not
think the January bills had yet been
sent out, and he did not know what
rate was to toe charged.
When informed that some bills had
been sent out, and the $1.45 rate had
been charged, and that Mr. Hovey had
said that the new ordinance was to be
disregarded, Mr. Binford said that a
suit would be filed tomorrow or next
day, in which he company would test
the legality of the new ordinance.
Suit Filed Today—City Enjoined.
Later Mr. Binford gave out the infor
mation that the suit brought by the
company against the city was filed to
day dn the federal court, and that a re
straining order will be issued upon the
filing by the company of a bond for
$5,000, to pay all damages providing the
ordinance is declared valid. A writ of
injunction will be issued by Judge Mc
Pherson this evening, it is understood,
restraining the city council from en
forcing the ordinance.
Any of the defendants, or other par
ties interested, may bring an action to
dissolve this injunotion upon giving
five days' notice.
The city of Marshalltown, every
member of tho council, the mayor, and
city clerk, are *11 made defendants In
the action.
Declares Ordinance Unconstitutional.
The action started by the company
is a suit In equity, similar to the one
brought by the company In 1900 wjien
the same rate question was raised A
compromise was effected in this c%se,
and another ordinance was adopted by
the council.
The gas company asks the court to
declare that the city's new gas ordi
nance is illegal because it is contrary
to the constitution of the United
States, contrary to the constitution of
the state of Iowa, and confiscatory.
The bond required by the company
will guarantee a refund to the patrons

Two of the most hotly contested In
door baseball games of the season
were played by the four teams, which
were scheduled to meet at the Y. M.
C. A. gymnasium Wednesday night. By
the score of 9 to 7 the Western Grocer
company team beat Brittaln & Co.,
thus removing the latter team from be

company for first place.
In an unusually close game the Mar
shalltown Buggy company managed to
beat the Iowa Central 5 to 4, and thus
retain the lead.
the admiration
and veneration felt by all present for
a man of such advanced years with a
mind so keen and alert.
The speaker began with the discov
ery of the Mississippi river, the land
ing of Marquette In Iowa near the
mouth of the Des Moines river, and
the dog feast wi^h the Illlni tribe, who
afterward recrossed the river and lo
cated in the territory to which was la
ter given .the name of Illinois. He then
told of the land grants recorded in
history and of the deaJmade with the
•Sacs and Foxes for a strip of land in
eastern Iowa approximately the pres
ent Second congressional diet riot. It
seems that-in anticipation of the man
ners and custon\s of the later states of
Dubuque and Davenport a committee
of Indians were entertained by the
whites in St Louis and .while drunk
deeded itheir land for a consideration
of seven mills per. quarter section.
Then he recounted personal anceo
dotes regarding Chiefs Black (Hawk,
and Keokuk, describing their power of
intellect and statesmanship. He told of
the council with the Iavvas at a point
on the Missouri called Council Bluffs
from which the city in a nearby loca
tion received its name.. The lead mines
discovered and operated by Dubuque,
a Frenchman, were involved dn Indian
affairs.
The Black Hawk war was explained
as due to abuse of the Indians by the
whites and like.wise the Spirit Lake
massacre as a reprisal for the murder
of an Indian and his son by a lawless
white man.
The struggles between the 'Sacs and
thirsty Sioux in northern Iowa fled to
the establishment of a proscriptive
zone stretching approximately frim
men, hence the name of thq northern
county.
The celebrated session which in
cluded central Iowa, Marshall and
Poweshiek counties was negotiated
with the Indians at a counoil at
Agency City near Ottumwa at which
some sensational incidents occurred.
