HEWS OF THE NEIGHBORS
Ex:Cashier Arrested. Chief of Po
lice Tom Atkinson Monday night re
ceived a telegram from City Marshal
i. j. JLioya of Tonganoxie, Kan., stat
ing he had under" arrest at the place
a man answering the description of
Julius A. Redman of Davenport. Chief
Atkinson turned the telegram over to
Sheriff Eckhardt, and the latter will
hring the prisoner, if he proves the
right party, back to Davenport. Red
man was- for years one of the well
known and popular young men of Dav
enport. He started in the barber busi
ness and later took a course in a com
mercial school, after which he secured
a position as cashier with the Daven
port office of the Standard Oil com
pany. While so engaged he is alleged
to have embezzled in the neighbor
hood of $1,400. Part of this was paid
back by relatives of the young man,
and it was believed no prosecution
would follow. Mr. Redman was under
a bond furnished by the Fidelity &
Deposit company of Maryland. They
secured his indictment by the grand
jury and offered a reward of $100 for
Elks Go to Waterloo. This morning
the strong representation of the local

There is scarcely any one. no matter how vigorous and he<hv. mho
does not need a tonic sometimes. Little physical irregularities upset the
system, the appetite fails, digestion is poor, the body feels tired and woh
out, and other unpleasant symptoms give warning that the system is disor
dered and needs assistance to ward off, perhaps, some serious sickness or
ailment. S. S. S. is recognized everywhere as the best of all tonics, nature's
medicine, made entirely of healing, cleansing, invigorating roots and herbs,
a systemic remedy without an equal. S. S. S. has the additional value of
being the greatest of all blood purifiers. It re-establishes the healthy circu
lation of the blood; rids the body of that tired, worn-out feeling, improves the
appetite and digestion, and brings about a return of health to those whose
systems have been weakened or depleted. S. S. S. acts more promptly and
pleasantly than any other medicine, and those who are run down in health
should commence its use at once. , It will thoroughly purify the blood arid
tone up the system. S. S. S. is admirably suited for a systemic- remedy
because it is free from minerals ; it may be used without harmful results by
persons of any age, and no unpleasant effects ever follow.
