THE AHaUS, THURSDAY AUGUST 14, 1902.
DAVENPORT DOTS A. W. Vander Veer, chairman of the board of park commissioners, lias" been questioned a good deal of late in regard to the concerts to be given in Central ark. The building of the new band stand there has made it impossible to give a concert for some time, but soon after the stand is completed a concert "will be "given. The workmen are busy on the contract, and the platform will soon be done. Constable llolliday made, a call up on a party named La Moke, living on West Third street adjacent to the new Wessels Hats, Tuesday evening' La Moke had seized upon the plans anil specifications employed in the work being1 done by the llawkeye Construction company, and refused to give them up, saying the construc tion of the Hats was a damage to his property. He thought he had the right to keep the plans he had seized and thus prevent the -continuance of the work, but the constable 'undeceiv ed him. OO There is on tile in the office of the county clerk the executive pardon extended to K. S. Jenks, the well known contractor and builcier, who was sentenced to five years in the penitentiary in November of last year, for the crime of forgery. The date of the pardon is Aug. 4.

The most quickly effective thing on earth for nature's "house cleaning." It relieves the clogged system of the impurities which poison the blood and drag down the vitality. Physicians and druggists who are familiar with these facts, and all the well informed are, do not hesitate to eommend Mull's Grape Tonic, the basis of which is the juice of the grape in all cases where a mild laxative is needed and in diseases of the Stomach, Liver, Kidneys and Bowels, and for convalescents or whenever a tonic and builder is needed. MANUFACTURED IN AMERICA ONLY BY The Lightning Medicine Company, R.ock Island. Illinois. THESE ARE STRONG TESTIMONIALS. For a mild laxative and a general family" medicirfe for man, woman or child, I consider Mull's Grape Tonic the superior of any remedy. It's pleasant to take, prompt in action, and the results are wonderful. Its power in building up a weak and run-down system is greater than any Cod Liver Oil preparation. I've tried them all. I write this hoping that some of my friends will read and profit by it. MRS. VTSl. STYLES, Glenwood Springs, Colo. I was an object of pity, for my suffering was great, before I began using Mull's Grape Tonic. The pains over my hips and in my back were frightful. The doctor pronounced it rheumatism and kidney trouble, but he did not help me. The neighbors had given me up once this summer, but, thank God, I am here yet, and I know Mull's Grape Tonic saved me. God bless you and your wonderful medicine. ' MRS. M. O. HONEYCUTT, Center, Texas. Gentlemen: I send you the picture of my little daughter, Nettie, who has taken Mull's Grape Tonic and been greatly benefitted by it. She was troubled with, catarrh in the head, and her general health was very poor. . Since taking this medicine she is much stronger and her catarrh is nearly gone. I will have her continue using your tonic until she is per fectly well.- S. STERLING, 1208 S. Second St, Dcs Moines, la. day where he will become a part-ol the detachment of the Fourteenth infantry Stationed there.' ' The property of Martin Greeley, who lives on Division street near liowditch, abuts the creek on the north which Hows diagonally be tween Division and Harris streets in the block between the Rockingham road and liowditch. Yesterday the creek was a raging torrent, and its path ' was 'swept clear of every thing. A wood pile was shifted fully 100 feet from where it stood without disintegration, liut worse than all was the drowning of CO chjks which were the pride of the Greeley home, and the hope of its larder. Martin works at the arsenal, and his visions of fried chicken and fresh eggs in his dinner basket have vanished with the torrent in the creek. One of those heavy thunderclaps accompanied an electric bolt that visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Fidlar, at Tenth and Trcmont Tuesday morning. At about 2 o'clock a chimney, extending into the air from a two-story portion of the house, and having a metal top and steadied by three guy wires, was struck, and the bolt from there evi dently went in three directions. along the guy wires to different parts of the house. The guy wires are gone, and part of the cornice and shingles were knocked ff at two places, the shingles falling to the ground ablaze, while a hide was knocked in the roof at another point. The storm had 'already awakened members, of the family, and while they distinctly saw the blazing hingles falling past the windows, the house fortunately did not catch fire, doubtless owing to the heavy rainfall at the time. Mr. and Mrs. Itichard McDaniel, of Chicago, who ire visiting at the Fidlar home, Mr. and Mrs. Fidlar, Frank, Sarah and Nellie Fidlar, were all' more or less hocked, and several were positive that flames cjuue right into their rooms when the bolt struck the house. SO John M. llelmick returned yester day from Valley City where he made one of a little colony of Davenport ers who have become accustomed to spending the summer there. J. L. Ma son bought property there some time ago, designed for a summer resi dence, and Mr. llelmick followed suit in buying land. Byron Whitaker and Rev. F. L. Thompson both have sum mer residences there now, and next year there may be more Da ven port ers in the colony. Mr. llelmick has purchased his property with the in A JL of Grape For Sa.le by Hartz & Ullemeyer. tention of making permanent iin provenients, and is looking forward to the time when the interurban railways get into running order so that he can make his residence at Valley City. The colony is about ten miles above Davenport, and it is the only place on the river in this vicinity where the bluffs run down to the river. There is a fine and a wide view, and the situation of the Davenporters residences is an ideal one. J. L. Siegfried, brother-in-law of Julius Schlueter, the man drowned down the river a couple of weeks ago, returned last evening frijm Louisa county, where be identified the float er found in the river Monday as the body of his relative. The remains were in, such condition as to prevent identification by means of features and marks on the body. However, Mr. Siegfried identified the floater positively by the number of th watch found on the clothing and by the clothing itself. He says there is not the slightest doubt that the body is that of his brother-in-law. Julius Schlueter, it will be recalled, came to his death by drowning. He was jumping to land from the bow of a launch and miscalculating the dis tance fell into deep water and did not return to the surface alive. r ire uestroyeu tne Darn on tne farm of D. Keginnitter Son's com pany, near " alley City; early We nesday morning. There were about eighteen tons of hay of this season's cut in the building, part of which be longed to the owners of the farm and the other part to the tenant, Hem mings. Nothing was saved as there was no way in which to rescue the property until the fire had made too much headway. The damage will amount to several hundred dollars The theory of the origin of the fire is that it was started by a lightning bolt which struck the barn at the time of the heavy storm." The barn is located on the line of the D., R. I. & N. W. tracks. IIU Sight Threatened. "While picnicking last month my 11-year-old boy was poisoned by some weed or plant," says W. II. Dibble, of Sioux City, Iowa. "He rubbed the poison off his bands into his eyes and for a while we were afraid he would lose his sight. Finally a neighbor recommended DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve. The first application helped him and in a few days he was as well as ever." For skin diseases, cuts, burns, scalds, wounds, insect bites, DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve is sure cure.

A scientist writing in Johnson's Cyclopaedia on the Grape Cures of Europe says: "Admirable results are attained especially when the 'Grape Cure has followed suit able treatment of the bowels; but the usefulness of the grape diet is beyond question the main factor in the cures."
