If Ki-o-na Does Net Cure the Red
Cross Pharmacy Will Feturn
Your Honey.
Among all the remedies in the Ked Cross
Pharmacy, the iojiilar drug store, there
are few that they are williini to sell on a
guarantee to refund the money if they do
not cure. .Mio-iia, the famous dyspepsia
remedy, has made so many cures anions;
their customers that Mr. Iiickert says: " If
tnis remedy does not cure you. come back
to our store ami we will cheerfully return
your money."
Anyone who has dyspepsia, indigestion,
headaches, dizzy feelings, or liver troubles,
should take advantage of this chance to be
made well without any risk of spending
their money to no purpose. Mi-o-na will
cure; will regulate the digestion; will
enable am one to eat w hat he wants. If it
does not do all this, the medicine will not
cost you a cent.
The lied Cross Pharmacy has sold hun
dreds of boxes of Mio-n-a in the last few
weeks and has yet to receive the first com
plaint from any customer. Sueh a record
is simply marvelous and speaks volumes
for the merit of the remedy.
It is easy enough to till a column with
the symptoms afflicting those who have
dyspepsia, but there is no need of describ
ing their condition. What they want is a
cure. And they have It in Mi-o-na.
Do not suffer a day longer with disor
dered digestion. If Mi-o-na cures you it
costs fiOc a box", and if it does not, you
have the Bed Cross Pharmacy's personal
guaarantee to return your money.

"That statement is a lie. I was with

him if he could describe ids assailant,
nnd ho said: 'The man was well dress

was accustomed to good clothes. He
did not look like a gentleman.' I have
not the slightest Idea who lie could be.

child and another tenant were serious
ly burned.
The fire was started by an incen

a man who, with his hands covered
with oil, was seen running from the
place Immediately after the Are started.
Fire Marshal Freel found stairways
as far up as the third floor soaked with
kerosene oil. It appeared as if the in
cendiary had been at work In the house
for a long time before-he was discov
ered by Johnson.
That more persons were not burned
in the Are is attributed to the action of
a rnotorman on an elevated train who
saw the smoke and blew the compress

whistle aroused the whole neighbor
Captain Martens said that the fire
was believed to have been started by a

was shot through the stomach, the bul
let being from a Winchester, and he
.lived but a short time. More than luC
shots were fired before the strikers re

killed outright and five were injured.
some of whom may die.
The storm caila from the northeast
and first struck the Wabash depot.
The Masonic temple next was demol
ished. On the lower floor of the tem
ple was a general merchandise store,
in which were several citizens. The
building was torn .to pieces beforo any
warning was received, and tlie victims
were buried beneath tlie wreckage.
Of the fourteen persona in the store
only five escaped death, and three re
ceived injuries which in two or three
cases may prove fatal. Tlie storm
passed on through the town, leaving
but a few buildings standing. A relief
party at once began the rescue of those
in the ruins of the temple, and nine
bodies were removed to an improvised
morgue. Five others were taken out,
some with broken legs and arms and
in each case serious if not fatal in
Tlie storm came on with great sud

before the people realized what had
happened. After leaving Elmo it con
tinued into, the country in a south

When wire communication with in
terior towns was opened up it became
apparent that the tornado in Iowa
caused far greater loss than was at
first reported. A report from Rotna,
in Shelby county, received by way of
Audubon, says that tlie town of Rotna
was completely demolished nnd many
of the farmhouses near that place
were wrecked. At Rotna a large
church and the Owat Western depot
are among the buildings known to
have been wrecked. No definite news
of casualties from there had been re
ceived. At Creston ten dwellings were
blown off their foundations and Mrs
S. E. Troop and her daughter were in
jured in the wreckage of their home.
Ten miles north" of Gray, Audubon

killed in tlie wreckage of a farmhouse
and five others injured seriously. All
were occupants of one house.
