Every Woman Loves a Diamond
Firtt of all (he wants a ring; then a diamond in anything. A Brooch,
a Bracelet orLaVallierro or a Diamond for hef hair. The sparklo
of these precious gems, enshrines her heart with Love and lends a
lustrous beauty to her face, which makes all else teem commonplace.

Diamonds appeal naturally to most everybody. Their
exquisite beauty, their staple value, and the fact that
their it absolutely no loss nor any depreciation from

At the tame time we have a number of very fine quality
Diamond which were bought some time agd and which can.
not now be durthcated for the Dries. We are sure to nleaie you

It is with no little degree of satisfac

Unlike most musicial comedies "A
Modern Evo" the Berlin operetta which
stirred Chicago to enthusiasm during
the past summer, is not a success be
cause of the individual efforts of any
one of equal opportunities. Tho success
of "A Modern Eve" lies within itself.
Tho book is so good that it would bo an
interesting entertainmont without the
music. As for tho music, its alluring
qualities are demostrated in tho vogue
possessed by most of tho melodies,
particularly tho "Good-Bye Everybody"
waltz. At the Keith next Friday evening.
"A Modern Eve."
Pretty tubes and captivating songa
occur incessantly in "A Modern Evo,"
tho remarkable Borlin musical success
with which Mort H. Singer has been
enchanting Chicagoans throughout the
summer. This attraction, will bo seen
at tho Keith Friday evening of this
week. It contains more song hits than
any musical comedy presented in years.
The alluring waltz song. "Goodbye,
Everybody," is in voguo all over the
country, and among tho other effective
songs are "Is tho Girl You Married
Still the Girl You Lovo?", "You're
Such a Lonesome Moon," "Every Day
is Christmas When You're Married'
"Hello, Sweetheart," "Won't You
Smile?" and "I'm Leaving Homo Papa"
The Big Pump in Place.
Tho big thrco million gallon pump
recently ordered by tho city was placed
in position last week, and within the
next thirty days will bo connected
with tho wells and placed in service.
The now pump ifr a monstrous piece of
machinery, weighing thirty-throe tons,
is nliout twenty-five feet long and sots
on a concroto foundation that represents
tons of cement and sand. While Its
maximum capacity is 3,000,000 gallons
per twonty-four hours, it is not prob
able that within tho next fow years it
will be called upon to furnish its maxi
mum, as during tho past season tho
daily consumption did not ot any timo
exceed one and one-half million gallons
during any twenty-four hours, and
when tho metre system is put in voguo
our people will naturally uso less
water. The new pump will be con
nectcd with tho thirty-two now wells,
and also With the twenty that have been
in servico, thus giving a water supply
from fifty-two wells.
( The new wells nro Hearing comple
tion, and were it not that some of the
material has been delayed, the work
would have been completed ere this;
however, it will requiro but b short
time to finish them when the material
nrrives. Tho, two new boilers aro in
in place and ready to be fired up at any
time. At prosent steam is furnished
by a boiler that tho city purchased
shortly oner taking over the plant,
and tho boiler capacity is therefore
ample for several years to . como. In
order to accommodate these now bollors,
which nro somewhat larger than tho
old ones, an extension of about a foot
was made on the east sido of tho boiler
With three now boilers, n new pump
and-thirty-two new wells, the pumping
plant will certainly be in fine shape,
and to tho credit of the city officials
these improvements have been made
largely from the receipts of the plant;
evidence that the business of the city
is being well managed.

Supervising Architect Archer has
