Extract From a Letter Received by
Mrs Pinkhairi. How Familiar
These Words Must be to Many.
f - -
"I am so nervous and wretched." "I feel as if I should fly." How
familiar these expressions are ! little things annoy you and make you
irritable. You. can't sleep, you are unfit for ordinary duties, and are
suDject to dizziness.
That bearing-down eensation. helps to make you feel miserable.
You have backache and pains low down in the side, pain in top of
neaa, later on at tne base or uiq brain.
Such a condition points unerringly to serious uterine trouble.
If you had written to Mrs. l'inkham when vou first experienced
impaired vitality, you would have been spared these hours of awful
- Happiness will be gone out of your life forever, my sister, unless
you act promptly. Procure I-ydii 12. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound at once. . It is absolutely sure to help you. Then write to iira.
Pinkham, at Lynn, ilass., if there is anything about your case you do
liuu uuueraianu.
You need not bo afraid to tell Mrs. Plnkbam the things you
could not explain to the doctor1 your letter will receive attention
from women and is absolutely confidential. Mrs. Pinkham's vast
experience with such troubles enables her to tell you just what is
best for you and she will charge you nothing for her advice.

People who suffer from habitual constipation with all its attendant ill,
clogged stomach and bowels, 6luggish liver, heartburn, indigestion, and thin
and impure Idood, are too apt to believe that the only remedy is violent
purgatives. The contrary is the case. Such cathartics, even if they do move
the bowels, arc irritating; and griping, leave the stomach inflamed and enfeebled
and the constipated condition recurs with greater difficulty of cure and tho
sufferer constantly growing worse. There is a laxative that moves the
bowels without pain or griping, cleanses the stomach, sharpens the appetite,
Ktimulates the live r, strengthens the nerves, and purifies the blood, while its
marvellous tonic properties tone up the entire system and keep it healthy.
Its remarkable tonic properties reach every organ the liver, kidneys
and stomach, nerve, heart and brain and removes the cause of your debil
itated condition. This is the only way to secure an absolute and permanent
cure. .
Laxakola is the only medicine for babies, is purely vegetable and its
action is gentle, speedy and effective. For coated tongue, simple fevers,
colds, chills and languid feeling it is the ideal medicine. - "
It tastes good. IjT Children like it and ask for it.
LaxakoLa, the great tonic laxative, is not only the most efficient df family remedies, but the snost
economical, because it combines two medicines, viz : laxative and tonic, and at one prsce.- No -other
remedy gives so much for the ir.-jn . At drucgists, 25c and 60c., or send for free sample to LAXAKOLA

Bischoff & Kuehl report two losses
by lightning during the recent storms
One was the killing of sonic stock on
tne farm of Julius Sireverkriebbe,
three miles cast of Kid ridge, and the
other was the demolition of the chim
ney and a portion of the roof on the
Jansen farm house down near the
The two lads who' rait away to fol
low the tented shows last Monday
night have returned home. When
boys leave home the meal time
doesn't come as regularly and it only
requires a little hunger to make them
long for the pantries of home. Both
lads have learned a lesson.
The sisters of Notre Dame, who
will have charge of the new St
.Mary's parochial school,' arrived in
the city Thursday evening and are
looking after the furnishing of their
new residence which will shortly be
occupied by them. They attended
the session of the St. Matthew's sew
ing circle held in the school hall yes
terday afternoon.
Motorneer Oeorge Hart of the Tri
City Street Kail way company had
quite an experience during the storm
Wednesday morning. As he was leav
ing his home on Cedar street, be
tween Third and Fourth streets,
lightning struck a big tree close by
him. He was thrown to the ground,
and sustained such a shock that he
was compelled to lay off for the day.
John Kruse, residing on the Indian
road, had the misfortune to sustain
the fracture of a leg in the neighbor
hood of the Northwest Davenport
Turner hall Thursday evening. He
was taken to his home in the ambu
lance during the -storm.
Some days ago there was a scuf
fle in a saloon in Chicago, A man
who was attempting the role of a
peacemaker was killed, and a Dav
enport boy, Alfred Sanders, is now
on trial for the offense.
There was a genuine land slide yes
terday at the home occupied by
Frank A. Kichey, 621 Kast Sixth
street. His house stands upon a lot
with 90 feet frontage and this was
washed away back to a depth of 50
feet, clear to the stone foundation
and leaving the porch standing un
supported. The house stands upon a
terrace and the dirt was washed out
into the street, leaving an odd look
ing sight where formerly was a
beautiful lawn. Thursday night's and
yesterday's heavy rains.together with
the softened condition of the earth
due to the recent rains, was respon
sible for the land fclide.
There was a dashing runaway upon
the government island Thursday
morning whirh might have had more
serious results attending it, for
which Lieut. Brisker of the island
staff and Henry Garstang, 5517 West
Third street of this city, are duly
thankful. Mr. 'Garstang was upon
the island looking after some work
and about 10:30 o'clock met lieut
Bricker in a buggy, who asked him
to get in, as both were bound for
Davenport. They had just passed the
headquarters when a wheel of the
u,,PToy dropped off and the horse be
came frightened and made a wild
plunge forward. The hxigy . was
overturned and the occupants thrown
heavily to the ground, Mr. (Jarstang
alighting upon the ground first and
the lieutenant upon top of him. Both
suffered several cuts upon the scalp
but not of a serious nature and Mr.
Garstang also had his right leg in
jured by being thrown against a
tree stump. The horse continued its
maddened course into the timber und
completely demolished the buggy be
fore it was ruptured. It was a for
tunate escape for both of the occu
pants. ,
The failure of present-day women
to make the home comfortable and
attractive and their inability to cook
and sew properly is, according to the
oelief of the Chicago bureau of char
ities, responsible for a large percent
age of the cases of estrangement be
tween husbands and wives among the
poor. In the last issue of its Weekly
Bulletin the bureau makes -a strong
plea to charity workers for the edu
cation of girls and household duties.
The Bulletin says:
If the home is to be the center and
root of our civilization it must be made
a place worth while going to and
spending time in. It is the girls who
must be taught this lesson and arous
ed to the nobility of their culling.
We are hearing clarion notes on this
subject .sounding from even the uni
versity halls. The men und women
of thought are realizing the faults
of the old education that looked well
to filing the head with facts. Presi
dent tJ. Stanley Hall of Clark uni
versity says: "The home should be
served by every child, who should feel
himself a useful and integral ruem-
ber of it, with duties. Every girl
should cook, sew, clean, polish and
perhaps wash have something to do
with flowers, develop some domestic
taste and pride, in place of the shame
so often felt by higli'school girls for
their lowly homes, for which their
education often breeds distaste
They should be reminded that too
soft hands in the young suggest a
soft brain; that hand and brain both
grow and are educated together
The kitchen is the heart of the home;
its industries, intelligently under
stood, are among the most educa
tional of all possible influences, and
to overcome- the alienation school
often breeds for home life in the
modern American girl is one of our
most serious problems."
Women, however, who are interest
ed in public welfare and charities are
not inclined to place the blame wholly
on their sex, but agree that model
housekeepers are jewels, and their
work about the house goes a long
way toward making homes comfort
able 2nd attractive.
"It is tremendously overstating
facts to say that a large number of
the cases of estrangements among
the poor are due to a lack of ability
ujHn the part of the wife to make
the home comfortable and attrac
tive,' said Miss Jane Addams. "Very
often the home is uncomfortable
through no fault of the womau. It
certainly is a trying task for a wo
man with several children to make u
home of two or three rooms ideally
comfortable. Thousands are forced
by circumstances to live in still more
cramped quarters than I speak of.
It is true a great many are unclean.
Personally I do not know of a single
ease where the woman's inability
to make the home comfortable has
furnished the sole ground of com
plaint in the separation of u hus
band a lid wife. There are always
tributary causes. Of course a 'neat
housekeeper is a jewel, but fiat
quality comes far from being every
thing. There are many tidy women,
w'e all know, who are capable of mak
ing themselves decidedly disagree
"I don't believe there is a larger
proportion of women who fail to' do
their part in home life intelligently,"
said Dr. t ranees Dickinson, "than
of men who fail to make intelligent
provision for homes. Manual train
ing and domestic science should be
taught to boys and girls alike. A
knowledge of both is essential to
them in home lffe. Later, in adult
life, the young men and young wo
men in the colleges should be taught
normal anatomy and physiology.
If they were given a course in physi
ology they would receive a know
ledge of food chemistry. Then there
would be no more harping about
eating this and that food. The ma
chine way of living would be done
away with. In the cities the boys
and girls of today are brought up in
flat buildings. Flat life is the ruin
ation of home life for children."
"P!verv girl should be taught all the
little things necessary to proper
housekeeping," said Dr. Anna Dvyer.
"There is much in making the home
attractive, and above all, in keeping
it clean. Every woman should be
proud to be the queen of a household.
There, a re duties that devolve upon
a husband, too. He should be a good
provider, of course. He ought to eee
that his wife has some, entertain
ment outside of the home. He
should take her to the theatre oc-casionallj'."

On account of the storm, of
Thursday evening and the bad
weather, of yesterday, the man
agement of the chautauqua has de
cided, after consultation with rep
resentatives, to continue the assem
bly one more day. The I). A. K. will
therefore have the afternoon of July
22 for their program. Any changes
in it will be announced later. There
will also be a session the evening of
July 22, and the committee is seek
ing to arrange with some speaker of
national reputation to come that ev
ening. All season ticket owners will
be admitted to the afternoon session
of the 22d on their tickets, but, un
less further storms prevent programs
from being carried out, they will not
be admitted to the evening session
of the 22d on such tickets. The rea
son for this is the great additional
expense to which the committee has
been put and the fact that the season
tickets expire on the 21st. A straight
charge of 25 cents will be made for
the evening performance. Program
will be announced later. Today's
program: 10:30, bible, reading; 2:30,

cosy house, which he has already pre

There -is more catarrh in this sec
tion of the country than in all other
diseases put together, and until the
last few years was supposed to be
incurable. For a great many years
doctors pronounced it a local dis
ease, and prescribed local remedies,
and by constantly failing to cure
with local treatment, pronounced it
incurable. Science has proven ca
tarrh to be a constitutional disease,
and, therefore, requires constitu
tional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney
& Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only con
stitutional cure on the market. It is
taken internally in doses from 10
urops to a teaspoonful. It acts di
rectly on the blood and mucous sur
faces of the system. They offer one
hundred dollars for any case it fails
to cure. Send for circulars and tes
