He also re newed his recommendation that a big good roads day he held In Mo'ine with in the nest two months. Mr. Nifsen believes that a proper educational campaign will bring the people cf the county to see that the bond proposition Is the only one which can Rive good roads now. He favors no action at the next meeting of the supervisors, but arzues that If the question goes over till the fall meet ing the people w i;i have had time to di gest the matter and wl'I t'nen be mere likely to be favorable to such a plan. In his statement he says: "I will not go into the merits of th bond proposition, other than to say that.

New York. April 18.- Ity has come to the Rev. Dr. Jacob E Price, pastor of the Washington Heights Methodist Episcopal church, since his recent trial before the" New York conference, at which a number of women charged that he had made passionate lore to them while engaged in pastoral calls. The conference held that Dr. Price had been lndi.-creet. but that his conduct had not been such as to warrant removing him from hlj church. The increased confidence In Dr. Price was shown on Easter Sunday, when 75 persons received the right hand of fellowship la his church and five babies were baptized. Not for several years had so large a class been admitted at one time to the church's membership. Dr. Price's son. Cart, said after the Easter service that his father did net desire to make ary statement con cerning what had happened, but that New York. April IS. The schedules of property owned by Darius Ogden Mills, w hich were submitted in the ' HI transfer tax proceedings before Ap praiser Nagle, became known today. The schedules show that the total estate left by Mr. Mills has been ap praised at $36,227,391. Of this amount, only S-l.2SO,W0 Is real estate, and $31,947,391 is the value of the gross personal estate. The realty does not include the three Mills hotels which had passed from the ownership of Mr. Mills before hi3 death. The realty comprises the Mills building at 15 Broad street and the building at SI Exchange place, which are appraised together at $4,225,000, reat popular- ani tne garage at 109 West Fifty- a year cr two with the proper equia merit and largo and reliable contract-1 and the usual number of appll- or3 will actually build more permanent cants for membership as proof of roads than a million and a ha'.f dol- approval of the New York confer- second street, worth $35,000. Mr. Mills, whho died in California on Jan. 3, 1910. appointed as execu tors his son, Ogden Mills, and his daughter, Elizabeth Mills Reld, widow of Whitelaw Reid. Bequests or kudiic (Nature. His will made bequests of $100,000 each to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. the Museum of National History and the Home for Incurables. (He gave $30,000 to the New York Botan ical gardens, and $23,000 each to the American National Red Cross society. Mr. Mills left his residuary estate in equal share to his son and daugh ter. The appraisal shows that the share each will receive Is $17,509,901. The net residuary estate Is $33,019, 703.53. The report shows that Mr. Mills receives one cent more than his sister. The list of securities owned by Mr. he regarded the increased attendance j Mills is interesting because of tho ingn value nxea tor stocks ana Donas which are little known, and also be- lars expended over a period of twenty years. Therefore, t"e extra amount of work actually accomplished by .'eason or having this $1,004,000 available at one time more than could be accom plished by f pending one-twentieth of this amount e&ii year, will more than pay tue total isnount cf interest on the entire bond i&su and at the same time actually get. the "3S5 days In the year" roads nci, so that they can be used during the-twenty years that the bonds will run. Kock Island county is in my Judg ment the most unfortunately located county in Illinois, owing to the fact that It really Is two counties under one government with, about 55 per cent of the- voting population and the taxes north of the city of Rock Island, and it can, therefore, readily be seen that unless some kind of arrangements can be made that w i:i enable all of the 131 milea-of rood that are as the conn ty roads system to be handled at one time, that there will be a continued strife in the different parts of the .county la regard to which road should be improved first. "I had a long interview with S. E. Bradt of Dekalb at Sterling Wednes day, he being the secretary of the state highway commission, and in my Judgment the best qualified man to talk in regard to the merits of the Tice law. Mr. Bradt Is a firm believer In the bond Issue plan at getting good roads now. He informed me that Ver milion county will vote on a million and a half bond issue, and tiiat they ara now arranging to submit a propo sition to the state legislature asking for an amend irent to the Tlce law, which will give -any county thit votes bonds for permanent roods the same amount from the state aid fund that ence's action. Carl Price said that only a few persons had withdrawn from the church as a result of the charges against his father. He could recall only three who had withdrawn out and out, but a few others had asked for letters of dismissal. they would be entitled to legally and let this amount be used to assist In retiring the bond. Mr. Bradt assured me that he fc!t confident that this law would be favored by the next legisl tion. and if so, it ought to make it an additional inducement for Rock Irljnd county to vote the bond issue. How to Get Votes. "I will not go Into more extended ex planation of the merits of the bond Issue proposition, but will now attempt. to explain what I consider will be the proper method of securing enough votes so as to carry by a large major ity. In the first place I would sug gest mat tne special committee ap pointed by the board of supervisors and the -Rock Island Highway Im provement association get together at as early a date as possible with the county superintendent of roads, Mr. Trelchler and other competent engi neers, and map out a comprehensive system as to the kind of roads they wish, so that if they should be favored by the board of su peri visors In having the bond Issue placed oif the ballot they could at the same time advertise exactly which roads were going to be Improved and how they would be built. "I would suggest personally that the main roads In Rock Island county like the Mississippi scenic highway, the Rock Island river valley road, the road leading south from Moline to Rural cause of the large number of secur ities which thhe appraiser found to be worthless. The face value of these worthless securities aggregate many millions. Mr. Miils got a number of them as collateral on loans which were never paid. Principal Holdings in Stocks. The larger holdings were: C.130 shares Atchison, Topcka and Santa Fe. $777,707. 15,C00 Ehares New York Central, $l,99G.0O0.

E'ynh.i ft I .Eerpicide ilar Morin, the strikingly beautiful Parisian actress, of whom America's leading theatrical manager says: "I consider her the greatest actress in her line in all the world," writes as follows: "Newbro's Herpicide is the most de lightful hair dressing that has ever come to my notice. It prevents the hair from falling out, does away with dandruff and gives the hair a beautiful luster. Cordially yours, (Signed) PILAR MORIX." 1 Beautiful, glossy hair, full of snap ad life. Is Just as essential to a beautiful face as is the frame around a beautiful picture. Nature does not permit every woman to have a great or unusual abundance of hair, but every woman who has reasonably good health may have beantlful hair if she will give it some care and attention. First of all she must constantly strive to keep it free from the invisible, vegetable growth (dandruff contagion) that causes dull, brittle and lusterless hair with, later, dandruff, itching scalp and falling hair. The fact that leading Parisian women prefer Newbro's Herpicide is certainly con clusive evidence of its superiority. The only. rational remedy for this purpose Is Newbro's Herpicide, the original germ-remedy for dandruff. In ad dition to this, it is the most exquisite bar dressing in, the world, for no other substance tends to beautify the hair as does Herpicide. TRUE BEAUTY TEST FOR WOMEN. Just begin the intelligent use of Herpicide in secret aim see how quickly your friends will notice the improvement in your hair. Herpicide contains no grease. Jt will not dye or darken the hair.

I would then suggest that the other roads connect trading points. for instance Hillsdale and Port Byron Barstow and Silvis, Taylor Ridge an4 Edglngton, and perhaps about one- third of the total system of county roads, be built of macadam, and th other one-third of the county system o roads be taoroughly graded, drained and graveled. Have Surplus Left. "I believe if thlg plan would be worked out that the entire 131 miles of county roads In Rock Island county can be taken care of In this manner with the million dollars and have surplus left for the maintainance of same. And now as to the best method of securing the votes. I feel absolute ly confident that unless the Rock Is land County Highway Improvement association can secure a few thousand members and enough money In their treasury so that they can afford to em ploy a reliable and qualified field sec retary to act under the leadership of President Phil Mitchell and Secretary K. W. Woodcock and to devote all of hiB time exclusively In keeping up the Interest and educating the voters of Rock Island county that It will be ab solutely Impossible to secure enough votes to carry this bond Issue, and I am', therefore, appealing to the news papers and to the voters of Rock Is land county who really believe la the bond Issue plan to rally to the sup port of the Rock Island Highway Im provrment association, not only with the moral Influence, bat with their cash as well.'

The Davenport police have detect ed a plot to poison the entire family of John Carlson, 2016 Iowa street. through the agency of doped bread, left on the front porcli by a supposed benefactor. Pinkerton detectives are to be called in and will immediately be gin to work on the case. The Carlson family Is In needy circumstances. through a combination of unfortunate circumstances, and has found it hard to make both ends meet. About three weeks ago. upon arising in the morn ing; Mrs. Carlson discovered a bundle on the back porch.
