Doctor Was "Touched." Dr. C.
Neef, a practicing physician of Le
nora, Kan., came to Davenport Wed
nesday and at night' went out to see
the sights. He visited all the high
places, at least what few are left after
the ravages of the Civic Federation,
and declared Davenport to ba but a
shadow of its former self. The doctor
managed, however, to get "touched"
for $50 and after coming to his senses
hied complaint with the police. V. S.
MeDermctt, a bartender, who assisted
in showing Dr. Neef around town, has
been arrested on suspicion and is be
ing held at the station pending- further
Raising the Assessment. Requests

manufacturers to aid in the collecting

of the Upper Mississippi River Im

at Moline, Davenport as well as Mo
line and Rock Island, was assessed

atte'nd to the matter, but on account
of the shortage of funds were unable
to comply with the request. The next

. Kuehl Transfers Bar. The Subur
ban .Island Park company has trans
ferred the bar privileges at Suburban
island from Clans Kuehl to Hans"
Roeh. Mr. Kuehl remains in charge
of all the other privileges at the island-
and will have general supervision of
the place. Mr. Kuehl Wednesday,
with his consent, had a temporary in
junction granted against him prevent
ing him from engaging in the illegal
sale of liquor. This, however, does
not prevent the conducting of a legal
bar on the island, so the case is en
tirely different from the recent at
tempt to sell a Davenport bar after
it had been permanently enjoined and
which caused a Davennorter to be
brought up for contempt of court.
Two Men Hurt. Albert R. Rohm
living at 2901 Harrison street, had the
nisfortune to have his right hand se-
erely wounded at the plant of the
davenport Ice company on Myrtle

with an emery wheel and in some tin- j
explained manner his hand came in
contact with the swiftly revolving
wheel. The rough surface tore through
the flesh of the first and second fin
gers until the bone was exposed.
James Malone, 122 West Pleasant
street, met with ill fortune Wednes
day in the small arms plant at the
armory on the government island. He
was running a machine' when his left
hand was caught and two fingers al
most severed from the hand,. The ar
senal surgeon dressed the wound and
although the injury is serious hopes
that the hand may grow into useful

o BLOOD HUMORS
The skin is not simply an outer covering of the body, but through its
thousands of pores and glands it performs the great and necessary work of
regulating our temperatures, and also assists in disposing of the refuse and
waste matters of the S3'stem by the constant evaporation that goes on
through these little tubes. To perform these duties the tissues andJibres
which connect and surround the pores and glands must be continually nour
ished by pure blood. When from any cause the circulation becomes infected
with ijnpurities and humors, it loses its strengthening powers and begins to
disease and irritate the delicate tissues, and produces Eczema, Acne, Tetter,
or some other itching, disfiguring skin trouble. S. S. S. cures skin diseases
of every kind by goirrg down into the circulation and neutralizing and remov
ing the impurities and humors. It changes the quality of the blood from an
acrid, fiery fluid to a cooling, health-producing stream, which, instead of
irritating and inflaming the skin, cures and nourishes it by its soothing,
healthful qualities. Salves, washes, lotions, etc., 'may be used for any tern
porary comfort or cleanliness they afford, but skin diseases cannot be cured
until S. S. S. has purified the blood. Book on Skin Diseases and any med
