, The new formed debating league'at
tangxustaaa college yesterday afternoon
(decided to accept the challenge re
icelved. from Lombard college recently
for a debate between the two Instjtu-
. ttions this year. The decision of the
',f "Idebating league followed the recom-
Jpnendation of the executive commit-
tee which had acted favorably on the
Challenge from Lombard college. This
rwlll.be -the first forensic contest ever
,?held between ie two colleges and
ought to arouse considerable interest.
It is probable that since Lombard
issued the challenge, the question will
ibe submitted by that institution. The
To men who lack courage, whose
nerves are unstrung, whose ideas are
confused, sleep, restless, confidence
gone, spirits low and easily depressed;
who are backward, hesitating; .who
won't venture because they are afraid
- of failure; who want somebody to de
cide for them; who are weak, puny,
irestlesa. Dr. Bartz offers help, and the
ihelp he gives you you cannot get from
, drugs or medicines.
The wonderful power of his Electri

'signs of nervous and physical break
down has been proved to tfce world.
: Today there's scarcely a city, town or
- village within the radius of 50 miles of
Rock Island where he can't show cures
that he has made. He wants to treat
men who want to become real men;
who want new life, new force, new

Never mind the past. Worrying

think about the past, he can help you
forget it and help you to steer clear of j
the pitfalls in the future. St .,
If yon are sick and weak and your
doctor isn't helping you much, you
ought to try Dr. Bartz's method of ap
plying Electricity. It's a grand remedy
when applied right! All such troubles
as indigestion, constip'ation, torpid liv

atism, neuralgia, lame hack, lumbago,
sciatica, sleeplessness, nervousness.
and headaches are completely cured
with Electricity applied according to
his scientific method. It overcomes all

Plana fa iDebate with Bethany.
Arrangements for the Bethany de
bate are now under way. The subject
for debate has been submitted to Beth
any and Augustana is now waiting to
ascertain which side Bethany chooses.
The debating league yesterday decided
to hold the preliminary contest for the
selection of the Bethany debaters Jan.
20, and the final debate about April
15. The debating 'societies belonging
to the league were Instructed to se

That was enough. The drunken
foreman's rage was as fierce as one of
his own furnaces now.
"He has, has he?' he roared above
the noise of the furnaces and the
iclanglng steel. "If he comes In here
I'll throw him la the furnace!"
"I don't blame you," supplemented
'Plnckney. And Smith, seeing now the
general manager was behind him In
whatever he might attempt, was ready
for desperate work.
"Herer he shouted. "Take my slg
nal whistle. m I'll go over by the door
and wait for that guy. When he
shows op you signal the men to take
out the gun."
"When he comes In!" exclaimed
Plnckney, amazed. "How can -you
stop his seeing you?"
The foreman laughed brutally, then.
stooping over, picked up from -the
floor a short piece of iron, already
blood stained at one end.
"O'Leary," he said briefly, and.
turning with the bar In his hand,
lurched across, drunkenly confident,
toward the path which Sommers must
cross on his way in the office to tbe
trap furnaces that contained the Som
mers gun. now ready to be hoisted
and transferred to the tempering bath;
Marsh had already hurried away.
Possible murder was more than he
had counted on when he allowed
rinckney to- bully him into becoming
his fellow conspirator.
Plnckney stood ready with the whis
tle In his hand, while the men at their
places waited, ready to hoist when
the signal should be given.
The trap was laid. All was" In readi
ness when Pinckney saw a raggedly
dressed girl with a shawl o,ver ber
head hurrying down -the furnace room
from the door through which the men
were accustomed to enter.
"Here!" he shouted. "What are you
doing here? Who are you? Get out!"
Instead of answering the girl ran
on until she had come facing hlra.
Then she stopped short and threw
back the shawl from. her hfad.-
Plnckney started back in amaze
ment, for instead of Lucy Smith, as
he expected, he looked into the blazing
i eyes of Prances Durant. '

Now Feels Fine.
Mr. A. Asplund, residing at 807
Twenty-ninth street, Rock Island,
says: "For about 10 or 12Nars
I felt out of sorts due to a btel
complaint, it made me feel diz
zy at times. Complicated with
thi3 unpleasant condition, I felt
generally run down. I had tried
several treatments previous to
consulting Dr. Bartz but I never
obtained any real satisfaction but
since I commenced his treatment
about two weeks ago I can truth
fully say I am feeling fine, that
tired wornout feeling which came
over me so frequently has prac
tically all left me."
Rheumatism Cured.
Mrs. Gust Anderson, residing at
324 Fifth avenue, Moline. says:
."I suffered intense rheumatic
pains in my left hand for some
time, the pain at times was so
bad I could hardly use it. Real
izing I would have to do some
thing different from what I had
been using I concluded to go and
take treatment from Dr. Bartz in
Rock Island. I am certainlv
pleased to think I did so, for in
less than a week's course every
particle of pain disappeared. I
. wish to furthermore state that
Dr. Bartz's treatments are cer
tainly fine."
Dt Nicholas B. Bartz is permanently
located In the People's National Jbauk

hours axe from 9 to 5 dally, Wednesday

The proverbial Thanksgiving day
turkey will be conspicuous by its ab
sence in many homes throughout this
city this year, not becauso of any lack
of demand for Mr. Turkey, but rather
because the supply will not be ade
quate to fulfill the demand.
A turkey famine stares the dealers
in the face arid none of them expect
to be able to secure more than half
of the birds which they ought to hav
to take care of their customers. Deal
ers are not soliciting orders for tur
keys because of the scarcity.
It seems that the big bird which has
become, inseparably linked with
Thanksgiving day is going out of ex
istence, as each year there are fewer
of them and the prices on them are
higher. This year the bird will coat
from two and a half to five cents per
pound more than it did last year, and
at the same time there are only aboat
half as many turkeys as were availa
ble last year. Local pou'trymen are
quite unable to supply the local de
mand and most of the gobblers who
will be the center of attraction on
many a Thanksgiving table will be the
product of poultrymen from Missouri.
Arrangements have been made for
bringing several carloads of Missouri
turkeys here and they will be nearly
all that are available for local con
sumers. They will cost in the neigh
borhood of 25 cents per pound.
On account of the high price of tur
keys many consumers will eat chick
ens and ducks Instead, and there
seems to be a goodly supply of these.
Chickens are especially good this year
and many people consider them more
toothsome than the turkey.

Davenport, Iowa, Nov. 20, 1909. To
the Press and People of America:
After more than 50,000 coal miners
have sacrificed their life to satisfy the
greed and criminal negligence of cor
porations, and the awful catastrophe
at Cherry, 111., with 300 men impris
oned three-quarters of a mile back
under ground with no way of escape
to be burned alive or suffocated, I
want to ask the " American people
through the press cf our country:
Is it not high time for America to j
own and operate our God-given coa!
mines and give the miners and people !
the benefit of the profit and giving
the miners a chance to escape death j
under ground without having to crawl j
three-quarters of a mile through fire I
and smoke on account of but one way !
of escape? When the profit from I
coal would have made more than throe i
openings and underground doors io
prevent the spread of fire, smoke ot j
gas? What right have wo as a nation
to let any corporation own our God-1
given coal mines and control prices I
and dig such long death traps without
any way of escape? Are we as a na
tion not jruilty of crime and murder?
Yes, we are guilty of legal murder
in more than one way, and as long as
our nation continues to sentence men
or women to death and execute them
we may expect mob violence. And as
long as mob violence goes unpunished
by imprisonment for. life mob violence
will increase. "Thou shah; not kill"
was intended for the Jury, Judg'i,
sheriff, corporation and mob as well
as for the assassin and common peo
ple. And I would like to hear from
all patriots who will cooperate In a
united demand that all our rulers, law
makers and Judges shall adopt and
use the decalogue and the golden rule
as a standard measure for all our laws
and government. Let's hear from all
who can endorse the Lord's standard
or who will take part in a state or
national convention for this purpose.
This Is tho standard referred to by
Isaiah 59:19 in which God condemns
bloody handed national crime and cor
poration greed and covetousness. And
unless we adopt God's standard soon
our national fall Is near. His standard
will end war' and settle the laTlff ques
tion through ground and income tax.
Shafr we huy and own our God-given
coal mines and control the corpora
tions by His standard before they con
trol our lawmakers and own our gov
ernment? , Not socialism . or prohibi
tion unmeasured by the Lord's stand
ard or rule, but laws and government
measured by the decalogue and King
Jesus rule. This will answer our
prayer, "Thy kingdom come thy will
be done in "earth," coal mines in
cluded. . To this end I ask the press
to kindly publish this letter and ask
for the cooperation of all Christians
and patriots in lifting up the Lord's
standard speedily in every state and
