TIME TO SNEEZE
HAS COME AGAIN
Hay Fever Sufferers Are Consulting
Time Tables and Dodging
Golden Rod.
Hay fever sufferers in Keokuk are
consulting time tables and trying to
dodge golden rod. The dry, dusty
weather and the fact that the golden
rod is blooming earlier than usual
this year probably will send the suf
ferers to their havens of relief ahead
of their usual schedules.
Some of the sufferers hare already
gone to northern or western resorts
•where they can forget there is such
a thing as a sneeze. Others will go
sometime this month.

C. O. Starr, 1008 Moigan street.
was arrested Sunday morning at
12:40 o'clock by Officers Tigue and
Shepherd on'complaint of his daugh
ter that he was drunk and troubling
bis divorced wife. The ir formation
as filed in the superior ocurt on Mon
day morning contained the name of
C. O. Stand in place of C. O. Starr.
Starr paid the fine and costs at the
police station and the money was
later turned over to the superior
court. It seems that there have been
cases lately where informations
against law violators ha-'e been filed
under assumed names. The practice
of .favoring any one individual over
the others is disgusting to the public
at large and one that police officers
should not countenance. Recently a
'well known citizen was taken to the
police station for a violation
of the automobile rules and
allowed to file a fictitious name.
A few days later the police made
aeveral arrests of well known citi
zens their correct names were
filed and appeared in the newspaper
renort of police doings. Why does
thepollce department adopt the rule
of giving the real names of some citi
zens and the incorrect ones of others?
CARD OF THANKS.
We wish to than*" the neighbors,
friends and M. W. A., for their kind
ness during the illness and death of
our husband and father. Also for the
beautiful floral offering.
