BEADY TO GRADE IDEAL RESIDENCE SITES There WIN be Fifty Lots Available When the Grading Is Finished— To Use Automatic Machines. Work preliminary to the grading ot. Keokuk Heights has been practically all completed, and the grading opera tions will commence very soon. The Hein house which occupies one of the Iota will not. be moved until after all of the grading' has been done. Out-, buildings and trees and shrubs have been cleared off the land, however, preparatory to actual grading opera-1 tions. The contract for grading has already been awarded and the city cQuncil has given permission to do the work. Cameron Joyce & Co., will do the grad ing. There will be an opportunity when the work is started to see the automatio grader at work. This grader ploughs a furrough of certain width and depth, and automatically rolls the dirt on to a platform, from which the wagons are loaded. In this way con siderable time is saved, and there is a conservation of energy. The grader was used in the opera tions on the site of the River Smelting & Refining company, but few people saw it in operation there as the dis tance to the plant was so great. Something like fifty lots will be available when all of the work is done on the Heights. There was consider able shrubbery and quite a large num ber of fruit trees which were grubbed UP in the preparations for grading. Keokuk Heights will be an ideal residence district as soon as it can be completed. The city water ^s being piped to the district, and there will be electricity available for lighting. The real estate committee of the Industrial Association has the matter in charge, OVERHAUL TORPEDO BOAT SOMMERS HERE Training Ship of Quincy Naval Re serves Will be Brought Into Dry dock at Keokuk. The U. S. S. Somers, the training ship of the local division of the Naval Reserves, steamed out of winter quar ters in the bay on its first trip of the year yesterday afternoon. The mem bers of the division enjoyed a sight of the high waters on a several mile cruise down the river, says the Quincy Herald. The boat will be taken to Keokuk probably Sunday. Special cradles are •being made near the government docks to place the boat on for re pairs. The Somers will be completely overhauled, and repainted, both on the interior and exterior. The estimated cost of the improvements is $1,000. The high stage of the river made the cruise yesterday void of its usual dan gers in the shallow channels of the river. Mechanicians on the boat have placed the machinery in splendid forking condition. When the boat is painted and overhauled" it will be a most valuable fesset to the local divi sion. All Wrong, Rupert.

PRISON INMATE IS ACCIDENT VICTIM George Davenport Seriously Hurt When Hoe is Caught in Belt ing and He is Struck. George Davenport, colored, met with one of the most serious acci dents which has happened at the prison for a long time, says the Ft Madison Democrat, it occurred Fri day afternoon about 2 o'clock and re sulted by contact with the sharp edge of a hoe. Davenport works in shop thirty-one and was engaged at the time of the accident in polishing hoes. The hoe is held by a pair of tongs which are supposed to be in good condition and strong enough to hold the hoe tight. The belt used on his machine was of leather, but the tongs were worn out. He intended to ask the foreman for a new pair of tongs but says he ne glected to do so, and kept on using the old pair. As the hoe passed back and forth over the emery wheel it slipped in the grip of the tongs, the ear in the hoe catching on the belt ing and instead of flying away from him it came towards him with force enough to cut a deep gash three inches long on the top of the right hand. Grinding out parts of the ten dons to the bone, it severed the ex tensor tendons of the right ring and middle fingers. Grocers everywhere sell Grape-Nuts. I SALEM Hon Bugene \V.

Creston Advertiser: A newspaper change of unusual Importance has just been made at Keokuk, the Gate City and the Constitution-Democrat having effected a consolidation. Keo kuk is a pretty large place to have only one newspaper, but there is no question about the success of the merger. The tendency in the news paper field is altogether toward the elimination of some of the newspa pers and the making of those that are left so strong and so good that they completely fill the field. The evei increasing cost of operation is sucui that even in cities of IS,000 to 25,000 well established newspapers are find ing it hard to make money and con solidations are to be expected more and more. The merger of the Gate City and the Constitution-Democrat wili give Keotok"one"''8pTendid" news man two them.

Marshalltown Times (Republican: Two daily newspapers in Keokuk have merged and the "hope now is to have one good newspaper to serve that community. Two newspapers in a town of 16,000 are as useless as two telephone companies or two gas com panies. One good one can give far better service. The Gate City and Constitution Democrat have struggled along for many years dividing a field that was hardly large enough for one and the combined circulation of the two has never reached more than twd-thirds that of the Times-Republican In a town of about the same size. If the publishers now live up to their opportunity people in the vicinity of Keokuk will read a better newspaper for one price than they formerly bought for two prices and advertis ers will talk to more readers at one rate than they ever did at two rates. newspaper in the neighboring city The politics of the merged sheet will be independent and all scissored views will be given due credit.

ARGUMENTS LACK deal whereby The Gate City and the Con stitution-Democrat of Keokuk has been consumated, whereby the two dailies consolidate and beginning April 3 will publish under the hy phenated name of The Gate City- That One of Jury Service for Instance Has Little Effect in Campaign Against Woman Suffrage. MEN OF STATE ORGANIZE Clubs for Support of Suffrage and for Active Work In This Measure Are Being Formed. The so-called "arguments" against woman suffrage speedily fall to pieces under the light of careful examina tion. So it is in the case of the "bug-, aboo" that the ballot and jury box must go together. This claim has been put forth on numerqus occasions with little heed to the fact that it smacks of class legislation. The op position seemingly has neglected to state that while many men are ex empted from jury service, they are not denied the right of suffrage. Ex emption of women from jury service for women voters would be juBt as reasonable. In the full suffrage states women are required to do jury duty in only one state, Kansas. In four states the women are permitted to serve on juries but are not called upon to do so. In Washington, they are eligible for jufy service but may be excused on request. Utah exempts women from jury duty by special statute, while in Arizona, Alaska, Colorado and 'Montana the word "male" has never been stricken from the list of qualifications for jurors. In Kansas the women defeated a bill designed to exempt them from jury duty, but they may be excused, however, on request. Women are eligible in Ne vada but no woman has ever been drawn. In California, Illinois, and Oregon, it is decided that the women are not eligible for jury duty. It will be seen from these facts that the ballot and jury duty do not go together any more than voting and fighting. There are millions of men who cannot fight but they can vote. There are thousands of men who do not serve on juries, but there ia no idea of taking the ballot away from them. Why deny the ballot to women because of any objection to their serving on juries? Voting and jury service are separate and distinct duties. The Men's League Organizing. The organization spirit is spreading rapidly among the men of Iowa, who are giving the heartiest sort of co operation to the women in the cam paign for the ballot. During the week ]ust closing, organization work was launched in more than ten counties and a number of other counties have promised action for this week. An enthusiastic group of suffrage men of Fort Dodge held a meeting Friday night to consider plans for the organization of a Webster County Men's league. The call was isBiied by Senator D. M. Kelleher, Mike Heaiy, M. J. Haire, Superintendent of Schools Minkel, Principal Blakely of the city schools. L. W. 'Wheeler, EI F. Armstrong, Senator O. M. Oieson and a number of other prominent men. These men expect to make things "go" in Webster county. At Oskaloosa Thursday night a number of prominent men perfected the organization of a Mahaska county men's league for woman suffrage, which will do much active work in the campaign. The men of Boone held a conference Monday night and made plans for the perfection of a county organization, and on the same night the union men of Marshalltown endorsed woman suffrage and took the preliminary steps for the organ ization of a men's league for woman suffrage. Fayette, Mitchell and Poweshiek county organizations are promised for au early date, and plans are being made for the launching of active men's leagues in Cherokee, Sac and Ida oountles shortly. The Dallas county league will become a reality within a short time, with a strong membership Including a majority of the county's representative men. A number of prominent speakers will come into Iowa during the last of May under the auapices of the men's league. Barratt OIHara of Chi cago, lieutenant governor of Illinois, and Hon. E. P. Costlgan of Denver, Colo., the progressive candidate for governor in the last election, are two of the most prominent men who have been engaged and the services of at least half dozen other men of national prominence are promised for the lo»Ta campaign.

Edw. W. Moore Sft?.'. CATARRH GERMS EASILY KILLED Only Way to Cure This Disease Is to Destroy Its Cause. If you have cattarrh and want to get rid of it you must kill the germs which cause catarrh. Stomach dosing, ointments, sprays, creams, douches, etc., fail because they overlook this fact. They all help by giving tem porary relief but they do not reach the germ llfo that has found lodge ment in your head, nose, throat, and could destroy It If they did. The best known way of destroying the dangerous germs of Catarrh and consequently ending the disease it self, is to breathe into the air passages of your nose and throat the pleasant, penetrating air of Hyomel (pro nounced Hlgh-o-me). Hyomel is made from purest oil of Eucalyptus com bined with other powerful, healing, aiv tlseptlc and germicidal Ingredients. You breath It through a little pocket inhaler which Wilkinson & Co., and other leading druggists In Keokuk and vicinity are furnishing with every complete treatment sold. Every time you Inhale the sweet, fragrant air of Hyomel through this little device you are drawing into your swollen, in flamed, germ laden membrances a medicated air which will not only re duce all the swelling and inflamma tion and open your clogged nose and stopped-up air passages, but will ab solutely and positively destroy every trace of Catarrh germ life it reaches. Druggists are so sure of the blessed, lasting relief that Hyomel brings to Catarrh sufferers that they sell Is in variably on the positive guarantee that money paid will bo refunded If successful results are not securer! from its use.
