Studied the Stars
That is what the ancients did in time of war.
Study the bargain offerings and where to get
them is the thing these days, either in times of
war or times of peace. Our store has always
commanded attention by deserving it. Our
stock of furniture surpasses all others in the
variety of assortment and fairness of price. We
ask only an inspection

the time you spend, even if you do not buy.
We have many pretty things in every line that
should interest you. Be alive to your own inter
ests and come to the store that never disappoints.
Some Doubt as to When Illinois

There are many conflicting stories
coucerninz the departure of the Illi
nois men from Camp Alger. It seems
to be generally accepted that alxmt
nine regiments are to le moved away.
A paymaster, who reported to deliver
the state s share of the salary lue the
New York men, asked Col. C. S. Rol-
erts. ail iu tan t of the camp, whether
he might make preparations to pay
his men Saturday of last week. The
adjutant replied that he might do so
salelv, as none of the troops in cam
as far as he knew were to lie orderei
away liefore the day named. Several
of the quartermasters in camp, how
ever, assert with much lMisitivenes
that they were shown at Dunn Loring
a telegram from the war department
directing Maj. Martin, the depot quar
termaster, to equip for active service
nine regiments, including the Oth
Illinois. Meanwhile the camp is kept
in constant uproar by preparations
for the speedy departure of some one.
Quartermasters and ordnance officers
are constantly guiding in trains of
arm-wagons, lauen wan unitorms
and ordnance. If this is auv indica
tion of the regiments that have been
selected lmth the 6th and 7th Illinois
are on the list, as ordnance supplies

was put to sleep in the ninth inning.
Rock Island made the winning score
in the eighth, there lieing a tie in the
two preceding bouts. Smith added
to his laurels. While he was in a de
gree generous at times, at the critical
period he heightened his speed and
prevented the enemy from getting in
timate with the "sphere. He was
given good support. Xouemacher
pitched pretty ball. The sailors
landed twice on the home plate in the
opening inning, Bacr being poked by
the pitcher and walking, and Strauss,
Dillon and Babbitt singling. Two
more in the second; Smith and Bacr
placed safties, the former coming in
on the latter's hit and Baer scoring on
Flood's drop of Wright's fly. One
was made in the next inning, Dillon
walking. Babbitt sacrificing and the
former scoring on a rl v bv Hanna.
The giants were snowballed until the
fourth. Berte put one in the infield.

Keefe received a present. Smith put
one in Babbitt s vara, lie iumuiea

brought in number two with a hit.
In the fifth it looked gloomy lor the
sailors. Pender safed, Wilson walked
and both sang home sweet home to
the music of a 3-sackcr by Berte. that
wiry little gentleman who covers the
short field for the Ottumwas so
cleverly and effectively. He scored
on a hit by Smith.
