late in regard to the concerts to be

soon be done.

Melf s Grape Totalc
... The Perfect La.xOk.tive ...
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
The Lightning Medicine Company, R.ock Island. Illinois.
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.

' 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

and Mrs. Fidlar, Frank, Sarah and

hocked, and several were positive

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

farm of D. Keginnitter Son's com

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,
