Coroner Lambaca held an inquest
over the body of Michael Brahni at
the undertaking parlors of Nissen &

gested when the body was found.
The members of the Davenport
Master Builders' association have en

ed for by Architect Harfst for a double
frame dwelling house to be erected
for Ben Berg on Ninth street and
Western avenue, and the contract was
to have been kt yesterday afternoon.
Mr. Harfst received no bids upon the
work from any of the local contract
ors. The trouble arose over the fact
that Mr. Harfst let several large jobs
for which he was architect to firms
from outside the city.

The System Lives
On Good Rich Blood
People Who Lack the Proper Quantity
and Quality of Blood Fall Vic
tims to Every Disease
DR. A. W. CHASE'S
The blood is the medium through
which every tissue, every organ is sup
plied with the material it feeds upon
and rebuilds itself with. Take awav
that nourishment by letting the blood
run down in quantity and quality and
you take away the power of an orcan
or tissue to resupply waste or rebuild
itself. In other words, the svstem
starves; color, appetite, steadiness, en
ergy, vigor, vitality all are lost and
a condition of mental and physical
prostration sets in. This condition
Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve Pills posi
tively cure by their power to manufac
ture good, rich, nutritious, oxygen car
rying blood, a biood that carries to
every organ the very material it lives
and thrives upon.
Mr. George Horkins, of Westinghouse
Avenue, Wilmerding, Pa., says:
"I began to use Dr. A. W. Chase'
Nerve Pills in Pittsburg. I was at the
time badly run down, weak nervous
-could not eat cold all the time, as
my blood was thin, and did not sleep
wen. l he medicine put me in snlen-

Rumor Is Untrue.
A rumor was current on the streets
of Moline that every candidate for the
postmastership has withdrawn in favor
of W. F. Eastman. Postmaster Mc
Kinley said, when asked about the
matter: "No, sir; I am in the place to
stay as long as the president sees fit
to appoint me and any rumors to the
effect that I have resigned has abso
lutely no foundation." Other candi

positively that they have not with

any one else.

APRIL WAS AN IDEAL MONTH
Temperature Was That of Average
For Past 34 Years.

greatest daily range of temperature
therefore was on the Inn. The least

the change recorded. The mean tem
perature for the month was 50, which
is also the average Tor the last 31
years. The total precipitation for this
month was 3.45, the greatest precipi
tation inside of 24 hours being 1.9G.
The average total precipitation for the
last 34 years for this month was 2.73.

If more than ordinary skill in playing brings the honors of the
game to the winning player, so exceptional merit in a remedy
ensures the commendation of the well informed, and as a rea
sonable amount of outdoor life and recreation is conducive to
the health and strength, so does a perfect laxative tend to one's
improvement in cases cf constipation, biliousness, headaches,
etc. It is all important, however, in selecting a laxative, to
choose one of known quality and excellence, like the ever
pleasant Syrup of Figs, manufactured by the California Fig
Syrup Co., a laxative which sweetens and cleanses the system
effectually, when a laxative is needed, without any unpleasant
after effects, as it acts naturally and gently on the internal
organs, simply assisting nature when nature needs assistance,
without griping, irritating or debilitating the internal organs in
any way, as it contains nothing of an objectionable or injurious
nature. As the plants which are combined with the figs in
the manufacture of Syrup of Figs are known to physicians to
act most beneficially upon the system, the remedy has met
with their general approval as a family laxative, a fact well
worth considering in making purchases.
It is because of the fact that SYRUP OF FIGS
is a remedy of known quality and excellence, and approved by
physicians that has led to its use by so many millions of well
informed people, who would not use any remedy of uncertain
quality or interior reputation, tvery family should have a
bottle of the genuine on hand at all times, to use when a
laxative remedy is required. Please to remember that the
genuine Syrup of Figs is for sale in bottles of one size
only, by all reputable druggists, and that full name of the
company California Fig Syrup Co., is plainly printed on
the front of every package. Regular price, 50c per bottle.

From the Chapin. S. C, News: Early
in the spring my w ife and I were taken
with diarrhoea anil so severe were the
pains that we called a physician who
prescribed for us, but his medicines
failed to give any relief. A friend who
had a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic.

hand gave each of us a dose and we
at once felt the effects. I procured a
bottle and before using the entire con
tents we were entirely cured. It is a
wonderful remedy and should be found

Paul Gilmore and a strong support
ing cast presented the s-ocial drama
"The Mummy and the Humming Bird1'
to an appreciative audience at the 11
linois last evening. The play which
deals jwiih the problems of smart set
in English aristocracy is cleverly con
ceived and enacted. The situations
are strongly drawn, but there is the
absence of those unfortunate develop
ments which too often .ittend the play
of the day. Th . production in a word
appeals to the inte.ligetu-e of the and
