The recent agricultural awaken
ing has created a demand for agri
cultural books which resulted in the
publication of a flood of literature
along this line, some good, some of
doubtful and Indifferent character,
and some positively bad from a sci
Recognizing this condition the Illi
nois Farmers' Institute appointed a
committee of three members of the
board of directors, a special commit
tee to examine, pass upon and rec
ommend such books as in their Judg
ment were true, scientific, easily un
derstood, and applicable to Illinois
conditions. This committee consist
ed of Frank I. Mann of Gilman,
chairman; A. N. Abbott of Morrison
and Charles W. Farr of Chicago.
The first two members are grad
uates of the University of Illinois
and are practical farmers, while Mr.
Farr is a graduate of the University
of Indiana, and is an assistant sup

Syndicate to Build Houses. Moline
and East Moline capitalists have or
ganlzed a syndicate to build houses in
East Moline, and excavation work for
the first 30 residences to be erected
is already under way. Masons started
work today and plans are to have the
buildings rushed to early completion
that they may be ready for occupancy
Sept. 1. Need of houses Is apparent.
There are not enough available houses
to meet present demands and with
completion of the Marseilles plant qt
least 200 families will become East
Moline houseseekers. The residence
structures which will be built will be
In close proximity to the Marseilles
plant; they will be rented or sold, as
men coming to take positions with the
concern may desire. Success of the
house building plan can easily be de
termined with the original 30 houses,
and on the measure of this success
will depend the number of additional
houses which will be provided. The
houses will cost from $1,600 to $1,800;
they will rent for approximately $15
to $16 a month. .

The skin is provided with countless pores and glands,
through which an evaporation is going on continually,
day and night. This is Nature's method of regulating the
'temperature of our bodies, and preserving the natural ap
pearance of the skin. These pores and glands are con
nected with tiny veins and arteries through which they
receive from the blood the necessary nourishment and
strength to preserve their healthy condition.
Just as long as the blood remains pure the skin will
be free from eruptions, but when the blood becomes af
fected with acids and humors its nourishing and healthful
properties are lost, and it3 acrid, humor-laden condition
causes inflammation of the delicate tissues aud fibres of
the pores and glands, and the effect is shown in Eczema,
Tetter, Salt Rheum, Pimples, Rashes, etc.
The humors and acids get into the blood througn a
deranged and inactive condition of the system. Those members whose doty
it is to collect and expel the refuse matters of the body fail to properly do
their work, and a surplus amount of waste matter is left in the 6ystem to
