UNJUST TO THE ATTORNEY
Followed Resolution in Employing
Circuit Court Reporter to Serve
in Grand Jury Room.
The county supervisors finished to
day the work for which they were
called into the extra session and at
noon a recess was taken with the un
derstanding that the afternoon would
be devoted to heading the committee
from Henry county, due to appear
here in regard to the proposed bridge
across Rock river at Colona.
A number of committee reports
were received this morning and for
the most part they were concurred
In by the board. The county inflr
mary committee made its report of
expenditures since the last meeting
and moved that the clerk be instruct
ed to Issue checks upon the county
treasurer, covering the amounts, and
this motion prevailed. The Jail com
mittee reported bill3 and the same
procedure was gone through in re
gard to issuing checks for their pay
ment. The committee on poor claims
issued -a report supplemental to the
one heard at the meeting yesterday,
and In it recommended that John
Buford post of this city and the Gra
ham post of Mpline, both G.'A. R. or
ganizations and Siboney Bay camp
of the United Spanish War veterans,
be allowed the sums of $150 each
for the first two and $100 for the
latter, to be used in caring for the
needy members of the camps. This
report was adopted.
Cut Reporter's BUI.
The bill of E. R. Maloney, engag
ed by State's Attorney L. M. Maglll
to take the testimony of witnesses
before the grand Jury, which was re
ferred back to a committee yester
day after considerable discussion,
was reported on today, with the rec
ommendation that he be allowed
$22.50 Instead of the $45 claimed In
the first bill. It was found by the
committee that the attack yesterday
on the state's attorney on account of
his having employed a reporter who
was unable to give his full time to
the grand Jury was unjustified", as he
had followed a resolution drawn up
by the supervisors in which he was
instructed to engage the circuit court
reporter, if possible. He had done
this despite the fact that the cir
cuit court reporter was busy with his
regular work. Mr. Maloney had done
his best to cover both duties satis
factorily and had succeeded in every
way. On motion of Supervisor East-
mann the words "circuit court re
porter" used in the resolution were
stricken out and the word "reporter

A good blood tonic can be made at
home at small cost. Get from your
druggist one ounce of kardene, mix
It with one-half cup sugar, and add
one-half pint of alcohol, and one

simple prescription makes a full
quart of the very best spring medi

one tablespoonful five minutes before
each meal and before retiring.
Kardene cleanses the blood from
