a severe fall and break hi3 right arm

Accident to Hose Company. While
coming down Main street in response
to an alarm of fire, hose company )'o.
3 met with an accident under the via
duct at Fifth and Harrison streets.
One of the horses slipped and fell
and was dragged a considerable dis
tance. Its running mate was also
thrown and for a time it looked as If
both animals had been injured. After
some delay they were enabled to con
tinue their way to the Are, which was
a small blaze in the furnace room of
the Masonic temple.
Put Tax on Dogs. The council of
Bettendorf held its regular meeting
for business at the town hall Monday
night, and after dispatching the rou
tine work, passed an ordinance assess
ing all owners of dogs 50 cents a
year. . Bettendorf is rather long on
dogs, and the tax may bring in quite
a revenue. Ed. H. Van Fatten was
present at the meeting and asked for
an extension of the franchise for a
ferry to Moline, until May 15, 190!),
which was granted.

But now there's some things
which your stomach won't digest.
Your stomach absolutely refuses to
accommodate you when you eat
certain, food so you have been
. forced by your stomach to eat food
which you detested, and pass up
those delicacies that you would
have really enjoyed.
There is a way now to eat any
thing you like, if you will let Ko

Kodol will do this, too. It won't
talk back or command, but will go
right ahead with its work and di
gest all the food you eat. Kodol
will let you eat anything you like
and all you want, and you 'won't
suffer with that dull feeling, that
fullness, and wish you hadn't eaten
You will not have that heart-burn,
which Is so annoying a Vines, if

There are certain mineral medicines which will remove the external
symptoms of Contagious Blood Poison, and shut the disease up in the
system for awhile, but when the treatment is left off the disease will surely
return. Then the. Joathsome symptoms of ulcerated mouth and throat,
copper-colored spots, falling hair, sores and ulcers, etc., are usually worse
because the disease has made rapid progress on the internal members, and
weakened the constitution and general health of the sufferer. S. S. S. is
the only remedy that can be used with perfect safety in the treatment of
Contagious Blood Poison, and with the assurance that a lasting cure will
result. This medicine, made entirely of roots and herbs of recognized
curative and tonic value, antidotes and destroys the powerful virus of the
disease, and by purifying the blood of every particle of the poison and
enriching and strengthening the circulation, removes every sypmptom of
the trouble. S. S. S. does not hide or cover up the disease in any way, but
drives it entirely out from the blood, leaving not the slightest trace for
future outbreaks. Home treatment book with valuable information and
any medical advice desired sent free to all who write.

NEW ROCK DRILLING DEVICE
On That Lessens Ncise and Danger
and Hastens Work.
A device to lessen the noise, the a&
noyance and the danger of blasting In
tunnel construction and at the same
time to increase the rate of progress in
putting tunnels through and iu level
ing the rocks which rise above grtd6
In many of the unbuilt upon streets of
New York is in course of construction
in the upper part of the city. Rock
dredge would be 'a fair popular uainu
for the new engine for the penetration
of the solid underworld, for it seems
by description to scoop up the rock as
readily as a steam shovel eats into a
This new, many clawed mechanical
paw is the invention of Olin S. Froe-
tor. a mining engineer of Denver.
The old rate of progress in the con
struction of an eight foot tunnel
through rock was by hand drills about
part of your body that works.
Kodol will do exactly what your
stomach does, when your stomach
is well and strong, and more, when
it is tired or out of order.
Kodol is composed of exactly
the same juices as found in a
healthy stomach, and therefore
will do the same work as the stom
ach, when It is well and strong
the only difference is, Kodol never
gets tired and Kodol is the only
dlgestant to-day, that will digest
all food and do it as completely, as
a strong, healthy stomach.
Get a bottle now and have it
ready to help your stomach at
times when you need an assistant.
Kodol Is at the nearest drug store.
Go to your dragplst today and pet a dol
lar bottle. Then after you hare used the
enth-e contents of the bottle if you can
honestly say, that it has not done you any
good, return the bottle to the druggist and,
he will refund your money without ques
tion or delay. We will then pay the drug
gist for the bottle. Don't hesitate, all
druggists know that our-guarantee is good.
This offer applies to the large bottle only
aud to but one in a family. The large bot
tle contains 2 times as much as the fifty
cent bottle. .
Kodol is prepared at the labora
tories of E. C. De Witt & Co., Chicago.

The new machine Is a steel construe
tlon twenty-three feet long, running
on a track and actuated by an engine
of 00 horsepower, with a cylindrical
head eight feet In diameter. In which
the potent ' mechanism of the whole
operates. This mechanism comprises
twenty-four separate drills so directed
as to deliver 600 slanting blows a min
ute upon the face of the rock, the
whole head constantly revolving slow
The pressure of the head against the
face of the rock is kept up by the
power of the driving engine, which for
this purpose is geared down from 200
revolutions a minute to 100. Then
rock chips are gathered up by the ro
tating head and dumped into recepta
cles on a conveying belt, which deliv
er them to cars at the rear of the ma
chine. Only two men are required to oper
ate the machine, the engineer and a
man who keeps busy directing the va

that this machine operates so neatly
that it will leave a perfectly safe and
solid roof of rock of only eight or nine
inches thickness. The machine oper

-A NEW ORANGE TREE.
Botanists Hope to "Invent" One That
Will Grow In the North.
Botanists in lie employ of the Unit
ed States department of agriculture
hope to bring into being an orange
tree which will be as sturdy us the ap
ple tree, an orange tree that will not
perish In the chill of northern winter,
which in December will wear its
wreath of snow and in May its gar
lands of bloom and when summer
comes will yield fruit as good as that
sweetened in the southern sun.
This may seem to be an unnatural
proposition, but it only swms so. No
violence upon the laws of nature has
been or will be attempted. It is sim
ply an effort to make the citrus tree
which bears the sweet table orange
as hardy and insensible to cold as the
citrus tree which bears the bitter, un
edible orange. By crossing the citrus
tree of the north and that of the south
it is sought to beget a plant in which
will be combined the good traits of
Government botanists are confident
that the results of this citrus marriage
will be a scion that will grow and
fruit at a latitude midway between
the northern limits of the sweet and
Whittier's Pot of Butter.
Once at the close of the midweek
service held in the Friends' meeting
house Mr. Whittier was inquiring
where he could get some fresh made
butter. The next morning he received
a pot of the very best butter that
Tond Hills could produce. The sender,
Friend Ruth Challls, was rewarded by
one of those spontaneous poems with
which he was wont to "burden" his
friends. The original copy of the poem
hangs upon the wall of the home of
Ruth Challis' granddaughter, who
treasures the note, given In payment of
her grandmother's pot of butter, as not
redeemable in silver or gold:

Perhapa it was because he was
Scotch that his temper was quick, but,
whatever the reason, he lost It during
! a rush hour at the little country sta
: tion where he was employed as porter,
, and he told one lady near by that she
I could go to well, a place not down on

i Quite naturally, she complained t
the station master, and it was he who
sent Sandy Into the waiting room to
apologize for his strong language. H
found several ladies there, and, not
being sure which was the she with

all around whether he had told her to

Costly Ring In a Bird's Nest.

playing in the woods in the lower end

Advancement for Lindgren. John
R. Lindgren has received word that he
has been promoted from the vice con

Chicago. The enlargement of the Chi
cago Kst is a business compliment
paid that city by the Swedish govern
ment. It seems that the importance
of Chicago as a commercial center is
recognized in Europe. The new consul
will have a district covering seven of
the neighboring middle western slates,
the vice consuls of each of these states
reporting to him. while he will deal

Murphy of 2031 Fifteenth street was
assaulted in her yard Monday night by
a stranger. Miss Murphy was out in
the yard and walked around a shed on
her way to the house. As she drew
alongside of the shed she encountered
a strange man, and before a word could
be spoken he struck her a vicious blow
between the- eyes. The force of the
blow knocked her down, and she let
out a scream and started to rise. She
had barely arisen to her feet when he
made another attempt to strike her,
but failed, and then disappeared in
the darkness. Miss Murphy hurried
into the house and the ponce were
summoned to the place, but the man
