FAIR IN HIGH FAVOR.
One of Some Kind in Rock Isl
and Seems to Be in
TALK OF A DISTRICT EXHIBITION.
Tlo Street Display, So Saeceaafal la
Other Illinois Cities. Likewise I'ro
poecd Food For Thoncht and Dls
ensslon Among Local Enterprising Peo
ple. Tan Akgls has spoken of the cer
tainty of a new theatre in Rock Island
in the near future. The formation of
an association such as will assure the
city something in the way of a fair, is
likewise desirable, and is more than
probable. A large percentage of the
people conversed with on the subject
are inclined to the belief that the col
lapse of the Davenport Fair and. Ex.
position has opened the waj to the
establishment of an annual district fair
here in Rock Island drawing from two
counties in Iowa and three at least in
Illinois. It is maintained that if such
a fair is undertaken here, it should be
on a more extensive scale than any
heretofore attempted in this part of
the country, and should be held a lit
tle later than the season observed in
Davenport and other surrounding
places, say about the 1st of October,
when the weather is more settled and
the conditions are more favorable to
the farmers coming in.
The argument is also made that
Rock Island should have ground
adapted not only to fair purposes, but
for races, picnics, etc. .-and that in this
way additional revenue for the use of
grounds could be provided for.
Street Fair Also In Favor,
The street fair discussed last fall is
also in favor in Rock Island. A num
ber of neighboring Illinois cities have
made a great success of the street
fair, and are going into it on a more
elaborate scale than ever the coming
year. The subject is worthy of con
sideration, but something snould be
done to keep Rock Island in line with
other advancing cities. The subject
of a fair or similar attraction will
engage the attention of the Rock
Island Club, as it isiikelv to.

HE LEAVES TOWN SUDDENLY.
Makes His Exit Just In Time to Avoid
Arrest on a Chare or Bla-anajr His
Second Victim Comes to Rock Isl
and to Prosecute Him and Meets Wife
Two women, each claiming Jesse A.
Keith to be her lawful husband, met
this morning in the home of wife No.
1 at 546 Twentieth street. Keith was
not there. He disappeared from town
last Wednesday, just early enough to
avoid arrest on a charge of bigamy,
Chief J. H. Pender having received a
telegram the following day from De
tective James Maloney, of Lincoln,
Neb., to hold Keith.
Keith is SS years of age and a car
penter by trde. He came to Rock
Island six months ago with his wife
and daughter. Ho secured employ
ment with Collins Bros., and readily
grew into the esteem of all whese ac
quaintance he made.
Last Wednesday Keith told his wife
that he was obliged, on account of
important business, to leave home for
a few days. He said he did not have
any money, and not desiring to draw
pay before it was due him, asked his
wife for a loan. He took the last dol
lar she had in her possession. She
says she has not heard from him since
and has not the slightest idea of his
Number Two on the Scene.
Mrs. Jesse A. Keith, of Chicago, ar
rived in the city last night. She called
at the police station and told her story,
volunteering to offer auv assistance
she could to mete out the deserved
punishment to her faithless husband
She preduced a marriage certificate
showing that slio was wedded at (Jhi
ca;o May 26 last to Keith, with whom
she savs she lived for three months
when he suddenly dropped out of
sijrht. She subsequenlty learnedtbat
at the time of their marriage Keith had
another wife residing at Colorado
Springs. She states she was a widow
when she was wedded to Keith, her
name having been Pearl Harrington
This morning, in company with
Oliicer William Rvan, Mrs. Keith, of
Chicago, called on Mrs. Keith on
Twentieth street, and acquainted the
latter with the facts, furnishing her
with evidence that satisfied her of
her husband's duplicity. Mrs. Keith
No. 1 savs she was married to
Keith at Lincoln, Neb., in 1806
The news of her husband's dual life
has proved a rrcat shock to her.
Mrs. Keith No. 1 had been to Lin
coln in search of Keith, and learning
that he was in liock Island, came on
here. She is determined that he shall
be made to answer to the law. She
left for Chicago at noon.

What Is Quality?
Quality is an element of goodness which all
desire and few attain.
Why the Few?
Because rjuality means the use of the lost of
everything. For instance, in bicycles: It
takes good material, good men. good thought,
good time, to produce quality. If you buy a
bicycle of quality like the Cleveland, it is
right and proper to pay for what you get.
So Quality Costs?
The best of anything is of more value than
of the ordinary or common thingof the same
class. Only a few attain ix-i fection, and
these few are of higher value. The manu
facturer who uses the best of materials, the .
lest of machinery and the l;st men, will pro
duce the best of quality. The C'eveland is
the lest of quality.
The Cleveland Represents Quality.
