TS A WONDER
To many people in and about Rock
Island how Shields keeps it up. Yes
and many of hit competitors, too. have
often caught themselves thinking the
same kind of little thoughts. When
ladies talk about the price of this or
that in the grocery line you will be
pretty certain to h?ar ShieTds men
tioned. Why? Because Shields keeps
them guessing. Here is a chance for
them to guess again:

Trains ou this division of the Chi

trouble experienced in consequence
of the wasboats near Thomp-on and
east or Savanna. Few freight trains
are running as yet, but all passen

time and making all points. The
damage on the other side of Savanua
has been all repaired, but the office
here is unable t,i say how long it will
be before the bridge at Plum river
will be replaced. In the meantime
passengers will either be transferred
at the river, on the other ide of
which they are met by a train, or
else trains will cross the North west
ern's bridge at Fulton and over to
Clinton, and from there on to Elk
river Junction, where the Milwau
kee's main line is r-ached, and taken
on to oppot.ite Savanna, where the
company's bridge is crossed into Illi

resumed. At any rate the company
is managing to take care of its busi

nature and the bureau of

constant inquiries. While the in

stores and went home and the bnsiness
