"Bock had just been paid off and had
-shipped oyer with 60 days' privilege of
leave. He intended to depart that
same night for a visit with his motier
aad sister in Moline, and he went on
the speed run because he was inter
ested to that extent in navy work."

Death Body Arrives Ahead of
Time Funeral Sunday.

"With receipt of more details con
cerning the accident of May 23 in
which Harry F. Bock of Moline metj
his death on the torpedo boat destroy
er Stewart, 20 miles outside the har
bor of ,San Diego, Cal., comes the news
that the young man died a hero's
death while engaged ia the fulfillment
of his duties as chief machinist's mate.
He stuck to the great wheel of the
ship's throttje in a desperate attempt
to shut off the steam even though he
was being literally cooked alive.
His body arrived in Moline by Wells
Fargo express Wednesday, almost 24
hours ahead of the time set in tele
grams some days ago, and is now at
the home of his mother, Mrs. Emil
Bock, 1533 Twenty-fifth, avenue. Rela
tives announce that an opportunity will
be given friends to view the remains
there.
FIAERAL SlKDAT AFTERXOOX.
Arrangements have been made to
hold the funeral from the home at 2:30
Sunday afternoon. Rev. D. S. Andre
wartha of Cambridge, a former pastor
in Moline, will officiate, and interment
will be in Rock Riverview cemetery.
The etory of Bock's death, as given
In the Los Angeles Times, Contains a
vivid account of the tragedy and the
local boy is praised for his bravery:
The story as it appeared under a San
Diego data line:
"The Stewart, fastest of the Pacific
coast torpedo boat destroyer fleet, was
making a steed test 20 miles off the
San Diego harbor at 8:15 a. m., May
123. when the accident happened. The
'engines were turning 230 revolutions
! a minute, making a speed of 254
knots an hour. Without, a moment's
warning, one of the large steam pipes
in the engine room exploded and there
came a jar that shook the whole ship
and the Eteam poured forth from the
engineroom hatchway.
"Lieutenant M. G. Shonerd. in com
mand of the ship, ordered the steam
shut off from the boiler room and the
crew stood by ready to dive into the
steam-choked engine room, where their
dying comrades lay. Two minutes
later the rescuers rushed 'down the
steep companionway and groped about
in the suffocating air.
DEAD AT HIS POST.
"Bock was found at his post, dead
True to the traditions of the American
navy, he had not tried to reach the
air. He was found in a crumpled heap
below the great wheel of the throttle
and the wheel had been turned twice
around. Five turns were necessary to
shut off the steam and he had accom-1
pUeshed two-fifths of that task while
in the excruciating ageny of being
cooked alive.
"Alma Miller, the oiler, who was dan
gerously burned, risked his life to
save Bock, his comrades say, but failed
in the attempt and took refuge behind
a litUe stream of water from a pump
in th corner of the room.
"It was cne ' of the accidents for
which no one courd be blamed, accord
ing to the account given by Lieutenant
Shonerd. Flaws and hand holes were
dircovered in the broken part of the
engine casting, but these defects were

Washington. D7 C, May 30. Both

"It is no uncommon thing for those
interested In the health and well-being
of the people of our day, to won
der at the lack of interest in the im
portant discoveries of the value and
use of herbs and plants in the treat
ment of diseases. If anyone had told
me of the wonderful benefits to be de
rived from such remedies a few weeks
ago, I would not have believed them,"
says Harry Fitzhugh, proprietor of the
Croft hat works, at 303 Perry street,
Davenport.
"I have been working very hard the
past two years, and having lately tak
en over this business, with the extra
work and strain I have been under, I
realized the gradual giving down of
my system. I was nervous and Irri
table. I slept because I felt thorough
ly exhausted, but was little benefitted,
and dreaded the day's work ahead of
me; my blood was impoverished, my
stomach did not assimilate my food
properly, and I had a heavy, depressed
feeling all tbe time. I bought a bot
tle of this new remedy. Plant Juice.
To say the results have astonished me
but poorly expresses it- I have bare
ly finished the first bottle, and my
Improvement was noticeable from the
first dose, and I am gaining my usual
strength and energy rapidly, and am
receiving proper nourishment from
my food. I regret not knowing of this
wonderful remedy sooner, and I earn
estly urge those afflicted to try Plant
Jul&e at once."
Plant Juice is that wonderful scien
tific combination of herbs, plants and
flowers of field and vale, the natural
remedies for the ills of mankind. Sold

Every sufferer of Rheumatism needs S. S. S. because this great blood pi
rifier is a certain cure for the paiulul disease. Rheumatism is caused by an
ezcesaof uric acid and other corrosive, irritating impurities ia the blood,
which are carried through the circulation to the different portions of tha
system. Thia acrid matter coats the nerves, muscles and joints with a fine,
caustic deposit and the sharp cutting pains or dull, constant aches are pro
duced. S. S. S. cures Rheumatism because it is a perfect blood purifier.
It goes into the blood, neutralizes the acids, and dissolves tbe irrttatintf
particles and forces them out of the system through the natural excretory
channels. Then all inflammation and swelling subside, the pains and aches
cease, and not only is Rheumatism permanently cured but under the ton
ic effects of S. S. S. the entire health is benefitted and built tip. S. S. S.
reaches Inherited cases as vrcll as those which Lave
been acquired, and good results always follow its
use. S. S. S. is an absolutely safe remedy because
it contains no strong minerals to damage the system.
It is made entirely of roots, herbs and barks. t Book
on Rheuro-tism and any medical advice free to all who write and request
same, S.S. S. is for sale) at leading drug stores.
