In conversing with The Argus over
the phone from the Tri-City Sani
tarium this morning. Sheriff P.runer
si'Id: "Conditions In the sheriff's of
fice have not been tiutisfactory to me
for some time, and I have had the
change in mind for several weeks.
Yesterday after I got up here, I made
up my mind that there was little
chance for me to get on my feet with
constant worry over the conduct of
my office hanging over me. So I went
down in an automobile liat night and
made the changes.
"Mr. Miller has been loyal to mo
throughout ull my troubles and while
1 have been confined to my huute. I
have felt that I could rely upon him
to roprom nt me until I can get back
on the Job, and with tLe new arrange
ments in force I am able to rest tasy
on that score, at lea,st."

William Wilson, colored, absorbed
too much gin last night and became
involved in a fight. Officer Kell
placed him in jail for safe keeping and
this morning a $00 fine was assessed.
Maurice Gilman, charged with dis
orderly conduct, was arraigned in po
lice court this morning, and his at
torney, J. K. Scott, entered a plea of
guilty before any witnesses could be
put on the stand. A fine of $5 was as
sessed. Gilman, it will be remem
bered, was accused of an attempt to
abduct a girl and take her into a
shady hotel. This morning interested
parlies stated that the girl had been
drinking and was afraid to return to
her home, and that was the reason
she was being taken to the hostelry
in question.
The police today denied the rumor
that a negro. Jack Palmer, was being
held here as a murder suspect for
a crime committed in Chicago. "We

The aid of the Rock Island and
Freeport police is being sought In an
effort to locate relatives of a woman
known as Cherry De St. Maurice, real
name, Flossie Baldwin, who was mur

BRl'TAL Ml'RDER.
Cherry De St. Maurice was married
in Chicago at the age of 16 years. A
baby girl was born, and a few days
afterward the husband deserted her.
Subsequently she secured a divorce.
The woman then joined a theatrical
troupe. Ten years ago she made her
heme in Sacramento, and in that brief
space of time amassed her fortune.
She was 37 years of age, very hand
some, and of Irish descent.
The woman was murdered in her
apartments by Jack DrumgoW, a prize
fighter, and Sam Roberts, alias Raber,
a cafe entertainer. The men clutched
her by the throat, and throwing her to
the floor cKSTted her to death. Rob

motive. Various valuable diamonds

day nfght at which it is likely an or

of at least one route through the dis

tion from here will go by auto, and
these desiring to attend, and who have
no means of getting t,here, are asked
to notify either H. S. Cable, president
cf the Rock Island Savings bank, or J.
K Vernon, vice president of the Peo
ple's National, who will endeavor to
provide transportation.
A number of speakers will be heard
on the subject of highway improve
ment and the new law under which
Etate aid may be secured will he fx
plained. The project is one in which
Rock Islanders are as much interest
ed as are farmers in the west end of
the county. Considerable tracts of
land in the district that the road would
reach are owned by Rock Island citi
zens, and every land owner ia a boost
er fcr better highways.
Cut off by natural barriers as Rock
Island Is from the country that must
supply it with produce and with which
its business men have to deal. It is of
the utmost Importance that the high
ways leading to it, be made passable
at all times. Especial need exists be
cause of the fact that the district in
which road improvement is proposed
is entirely without, transportation fa
cilities other than those afforded by
the highways, ar.d tha country is one
of the richest that lies out of doors.
The meeting at Edgington has been
called by the Progressive Countxy club
of that township, and it is understood
that the route favored is from Milan
to Taylor Ridge, thence to Edgington,
Illinois City and on west, possibly to
Muscatine. This route carries the
heaviest local travel of "any In the west
end of the county and is favored by
many for that reason. However, there

FINE INVENTION
OF A LOCAL ELK
Robert L. Hunter Has Vacuum
Print Drier That Is At
tracting Attention.
An invention which promises to
revolutionize the photographer's art
has just been completed by Robert L.
Hunter, -who has a photographic sup
ply store at 150 Second avenue. He
has sold the manufacturing rights to
Burke & James, Inc., Chicago, who
will place the device on, the market.
A patent has been applied for.
The invention Is a vacuum print
drier. With it flat, dry prints
can be turned out, in 30 min
utes, instead of taking 48 hours as
previously. Many methods of drying
and flattening prints have been ad
vanced from time to time but have
not been very satisfactory. During
the process of developing, fixing and
washing of prints, both the coating
and its paper support expand consid
erably. In drying, the emulsion con
tracts to a greater extent than the
support, with the result that the print
is drawn out of shape. With the
vacuum drier the print' roll holds the
Airs. M. A. B. Ham. .
San Francisco, Cal.. July 17. Mrs.
M. A. B. Ham, wife of George I. Ham,
the banker, who effected his release
from a Mexican prison during the tur
moil of the revolution, has arrived
from the lower coast.
Single handed, she labored in be
half of her husband, who is now try
ing to recover his health in Europe, in
(an effort to recoup the broken fortunes
of the banker, whose Imprisonment
for alleged misappropriation of funds
attracted wide attention two years
ago.
Undismayed by the trials and tribu
lations she underwent in the southern
republic, Mrs. Ham still has hopes
that the interests of her husband will
come out all right and she says that
they expect eventually to return to
Mexico. She formerly lived in Pasa
dena. During the time Ham was languish
ing In a dungeon his wife worked brave
ly for his release, appealing to many
high and Influential sourceg to no
avail. She made many trips to Mex
ico City, experiencing all kinds of odd
adventures. Then came the (revolt,
and a fortunate revolt it was for the
difficulties and greater advantages in
the way of direct connection with the
three cities.

back from its emulsion side from the .
time it leaves. tTle wash water until It '
is bone dry.
In operation the vacuum drier is
extremely simple. As soon as the ...
prints are taken from the wa6h water
and the surplus moisture removed
they are rolled up In the apron be-
tween blotters about, the print roll
drum. The roll is next placed end-,
wise In the lower funnel of the drier,
and the upper funnel Is drawn down
about the upper end of the print roll.
A strong vacuum is formed above the
print roll as soon as the fan Is started, .
drawing a rapid circulation of air up-'
ward through the corrugations of the
print roll apron. A small heater in
the warm air chamber, beneath the
lower funnel, serves to make drying
quicker In moist weather. It is not
necessary when the atmosphere Is
dry.
Mr. Hunter leaves this evening for
Kansas City where he will demon
strate his drier before the National
Photographers' convention for tho
Burke & James company.
Teething children have more or less
diarrhoea, which can be controlled by
giving Chamberlain s Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy. All that is
necessary is to give the prescribed
dose after each operation ot tae bow

oil to cleanse the system. It Is safe
and sure. Sold by all druggists.
