Outlines life in a big city, its snares and de
lusions, its pleasures and Its pains. There
are many advantages incident to living in a
city the size of Rock Island. Among these
is the fact that careful buyers may note
where goods are sold the most reasonable,
and also the seller must give good values to
retain his buyers, where in proportion to a
big town his scope is limited.
The Cash Grocery
Is a feature of modern merchandising that
has come to stay and it has brought with it
many advantages that oM credit systems
did not possess. Shields was the pioneer
and he is still the leader. Look around
you and see what others are paying and
you will find that there is truth in the

There is much significance in
Judge Bifrelow'a rulings on the Ful
ton motions in the circuit court at
Morrison yesterday. The position of
the couit not only completes the
rout of the enemy of the order, but
establishes the fact that the claims
the Fulton people have set up
in their repeated attacks oo Judge
Gest that Judge Bigeio was with
them, were without foundation.
Judge Bigelow has demonstrated
either that he does not take any
stock . in the pleas of the 1 ultuu-
ltes, or that he does not pro pais?
to. sit as a court ol appeal
to pass upon the aets of a jurist
in his own circuit. He la probably
equally persuaded on both points.
However, the would-be obstruction
ists have had a chance to go before
Judge Bigelow during a regular
term oi tne wimeside circuit court,
at the most advantageous time po
aible. No one has prevented them
or interfered with them. They have
saia meir nitie say. ana it Has been
heard, and Judge Bigelow has told
them what he thought of them.
They have had their day in court.
and while they may appeal and net a
Hearing irom tne supreme court of
Illinois on one hand, and the high
est irinunai oi ieaerai jurisdiction on
the other, the onlv ones who will
profit will be the Foltonites' astute
. And all. thing! have worked to
gether for good. Every move that
nas neen made in tne interest of the
order throughout the controversy
nas oeneniea ana neipea in bring
ing about the final result, and no
matter how ill-advised may have
been tne appearances to some, of the
expeditions made to Fulton, they
each contributed to the ground work
oi tne linai victory, and every man
who has ever gone to Fulton to move
tne Dead omee here, helped to bring
it when it did some. It was the
conaequenoe of the attempt of Au.
13 that made possible the injunction
from Judge Gest. .under wnich the
omce was really moved eventually.
Tne oocasion for that injunction had
to be established. The people of
Fulton famished it themselves in
their conduct both on the night oi
Aug. IS and when they expected a
similar cell . wnea Judge Gest dU
solved the iojanotion that next suc

The clerks of the Modern Wood

offije of the great order is now
permanently launched. Everything
Is working smoothly, and the work
is being carried on as rapidly as if

Head Clerk Hawes has the routine
affairs of his office thoroughly sys
tematized. When the headquarters
were in tne wniteside county burg,
cramped in that little 2x4 brick
which is tied to a bunch of clay across
tne street irom tne town pump,
surrounded though he was by em
barrassment and unpleasantness, he
succeeded in establishing an admir
able system wnicn still characterizas
the workings of the office. Hed
Clerk Hawes ha surrounded himself
with a competent force of assistants.
and they are ladies and gentlemen

The miners of the Coal Valley Min
ing company at Cable and Sherrard
received notice from Saps. Lee yes
terday to remove all their tools from
lit bush forthwith. Ho explana
tions were given, and this morning
the men were complying, there being
a general impression among them
mat tne move is tne forerunner of
the reopening of the mines with new
men. At the company's offices in
Bock Island, however, it is given out
that there is nothing new and that
the oompany has no immediate plans.
The men, it is said, have bad no eon-
aeotion with the oompany since they
were paid off last July and that there
is no reason why they should not re
move tbeir property from that of the
company. .As to its further plans
tne company nas notning to say.
At Gilchrist the mining company
has gone still further and has or
dered the men out of the company
nouses, ana is preparing to reopen
the minee. One rumor is that 200
negroes have been engaged to work
