occured to you that you pay big: prices for
these things? Do you care to buy five articles or do
you require only one a strictly pure soap.? Remember
you pay for perfume whenever you buy it mixed

own selection of perfume and buy it separately? It is
certainly the method adopted by most persons of culti

AGAINST PEORIA ROBBERS
Deputy Sheriff Murphy, of IVoria.
was in the city yesterday in tpiest of
evidence to use in the trial of the roI
bers captured here a few weeks ago
for stealing Jjr'.mm worth of jewelry
in that city. He an. I Chief Darnell
visited Moliue and Davenport to noti
fy those who had taken part in the
capture of the men and the recovery
of the booty to apear. The fact that
the stolen property was not found in
possession of the robiiers and that
the prisoners will not talk for fear
of incriminating themselves throws
the burden of proof rather heavily
upon the tati. In order to promote
promptness on the part of the wit

PRESSURE IS TESTED
TO SATISFY OIL MEN
The following dispatch from Ileau
mont. Tex., under date of May 7, a(
pcarhtg in the St. Louis Republic,
will be read with interest by bidders
of stock in local oil companies:
"Five wells on Spindletop were
gushed this afternoon in the presence
of a large crowd to demonstrate that
stories of the passing of the gusher
here were untrue.
"In one of the wells there was n
compressed air pipe, and a small
quantity of the air was used in agi
tating the well. Another well was
agitated with a bailer in the usual
way. The other three gushed with
out agitation of any kind. The wells
tested today were the Tri-City, two
of the 1 Icy wood wells, the Michigan,
Texas and the Union.
"The oil men who were present ex
press themselves as thoroughly satis
fied. The town is still lcing flooded
with inquiries to brokers, bankers
and private citizens regarding the
conditions. The answers are various,
but are harmonious in that they urge
investors to- hold their stock, as there
will undoubtedly be a big advance in
the price of oil. '
"There is little attempt to deny the
fact that the gas pressure is gradu
ally decreasing, but' it has not passed
the useful stage as yet. Oil wus
quoted today at TJ'2 cents a barrel,
an increase of 5 cents since Monday."

SHOOTING IN HENRY
County Stirred Over Murderous
Assault of C. Goforth on
ATTACKED ON LONELY ROADWAY
Young Man Had Hcsentetl Assail
ant's Insolence Earlier
in the Day.
All Henry county is excited over the
cowardly shooting of William Cass
by Columbus (ioforth, between 5 and
0 o'clock Tuesday n'gbt. (ioforth
laid in wait by the road side, in West
county, stud emptied three chambers
of his revolver as (,'ass passed him.
Only one ball took effect. The wound
is in the hip, and, although serious,
the surgeons now entertain hopes
of the young man's recovery.
(Ioforth is about forty years old
and lives in tho timber three miles
south of town, lie is of a quarrel
some disposition and only the day
before the shooting separated from
his wife. Tuesday he came to town
and evidently was in bad humor, for
he tried to fight with everyone he
met. When he found Cass sitting on
the counter in one of the stores, he
dared him to fight and taunted him
with being afraid. Cass thought the
man bad lccn drinking and rather
than quarrel with him left the store.
A short time afterwards the two
men again met, this time on the street
and (ioforth renewed his insolence.
Finally Cass became angry and
knocked Ihe man down. Friends pre
vented further trouble and the inci
dent was thought to be closed.
(iopR Home for Revolver.
(ioforth was stung by the outcome
of the matter and went home to se
cure his revolver. When he return
ed, be discovered that Cass had gone
to Wood lit! ' I "ti business and would
not be home until evening. He hung
around through the afternoon and
about 4 o'clock went out tin tho
Woodhull road, about a mile and a
half from Alpha and waited for the
coining of Cass.
Cas was all unsuspicious of dan
ger and paid attention 1: controlling
his horses when the fusillade opened.
When the third shot took effect in
his body, he dropped the lines and
his team ran away. He was thrown
out and lay on the ground in a semi
conscious condition when the people
in a house near the scene of tho
(ioforth rode past he prostrate
body, doubtless thinking it was dead.
and since then no one that knows
him has seen anything of him.

The treatment of Catarrh with, antiseptic and
astringent washes, lotions, salves, medicated tobacco
and cigarettes or any external or local application, is
just as senseless as would be kindling a fire on top of
the pot to make it boil. True, these give temporary
relief, but the cavities and passages of the head and the
bronchial tubes soon fill up again with mucus.
Taking cold is the first step towards Catarrh, for it
checks Oerspiraticn. and the poisonous acids and
vapors which should pass off through the skin, are
thrown back upon the mucous membrane or inner skin,
producing inflammation and excessive flow of mucus,
much of which is absorbed into the blood, and through the circulation
reaches every part of the system, involving the Stomach, Kidneys and other
parts of the body. When the disease assumes the dry form, the breath
becomes exceeding foul, blinding headaches are frequent, the ej'es red,
hearing affected and a constant ringing in the ears. No remedy that does
not reach the polluted blood can cure Catarrh. S. S. S. expels from the
circulation all onensive matter, and when rich, pure
blood is again coursing through the body the
mucous membranes become healthy and the skin
active, all the disagreeable, painful symptoms disap
pear, and a permanent, thorough cure is effected.
S. S. S. being a strictly vegetable blood purifier does not derange the
Stomach and digestion, but the appetite and general health rapidly improve
under its tonic effects. Write us about your case and get the best medical
