Uuniors to the erTect that the war

istence of which lias led to
the present troubles affecting

have unfortunately not so far

il is lM.Tu-cd that such a emirse, aud

it was impossible to spare the funds
necessary to construct so larpe an im
provement out of the proceeds of one
or two years' receipts, the water rent
als were pledged for six years for the
sum of 130,000. to be liquidated at
5,000 per year. Thus we are enabled
to construct the plant from the city's
water rentals alone without imposing
a burden upon our property holders
by increasing their taxes or using their
tax money whatever.
The plaus and specilications were
prepared by Jacob A. llariuon, a civil
engineer of'Teoria, 111. Work was
commenced on the improvement by
the city in the fall of 1X7. when con
siderable excavation was doue. In
the spring of lMiS the contract for the
balance of the excavation and trench
ing was let to the Sennott Construc
tion com pan v, of Chicago, and the con
tract for masonry and cement con
creting was let to C. J. Iirkin, of this
city. When we stop to consider that
everv pound of rock, cement brick,
sml. water pijx-s and gravel had to be
hauled to the top of this hill, varying
in distance from one and one-half to
three miles, we can realize that it
is a giliantic undertaking.
Clnoe to the I'eople.
W'c honestly hope and trust that
this great improvement will fullilP its
mission aud give to the people that
satisfaction we anticipate. We know
of no public utility that comes closer
to the people, or appeals to municipal
authorities more than the pnbiic
water supply. The condition of the
water certainly affects the health of
the community. When impure and
loaded with diseased germs, the in
crease of the death rate will lc very
perceptible. When pure, clear and
sparkling, as we exjcct the ellluent of
this plant to be. it will prove the
truth of the adage, that l'ure watci
is oneof God's greatest gifts to man."
At the conclusion of his address
Mayor Medill. in the name of the city
of "llock Island, and with the assist
ance of Contractor C. J. Larkin, placed
the cornerstone in position.

Mr. Uuyt-r'a Remark.
The band played again, after which
F. II. Guyer was introduced. He
taikeil entertainingly of the develop
ment of the Mississippi valley, which he
said was conlined to the century about
to close. Naturally the steps taken
toward developing this vast territory
were for many years few and far be-j
tween. e all rememit-r tue niiui
streets, the uneven board sidewalks,
the stone quarry ami the gravel pit in
the publie squares, that real estate
would not sell for the cost of im
the improvements. The new genera
tion organized, established grades,
paved the streets, built sidewalks and
transferred the quarry and gravel pits
yito bt-autiful parks. As an ' influ
ential officer these paths of progress
were sought by the man (Mr. Medili)
who had twice honored the city as its
chief executive. Devoted to the in
terests of the public and jealously
guarding its rights, even at the ex
jHMise of unpopularity in certain isel
lish quarters, he had devoted his tal
ents and lest endeavors to secure the
greatest good to the entire city. He
realized that the one drawback to the
permanent prosperity of the city was
thecontaminated water supply, which
threatened the health and lives of all
citizens. Many difficulties had to be
overcome, the greatest of which were
the financial undertaking and the
arousing of public sentiment.
The very lest job that could
le planued by intelligent study
was jerfected in the most economical
way that devotion to duty could dic
tate. Mr. Guyer said the citizens of
Bock Island felt proud of the mayor
who planned and executed, and the
council which loyally supported the
work. The reservoir would stand
forever as a monument to their wis
dom, intelligence, skill, perseverance
and devotion. "Monuments, how
ever." said Mr. Guyer in conclusion,
"are nitre reminders of good accom
plished: the good accomplished in this
great work, in insuring health and
long life to the citizens of Uock Isl
and, should be a greater source of sat
isfaction to these faithful public ser
vants than a monument of bronze or
stone. In behalf of the citizens of
Uock Island. I fray 'well done, thou
good and faithful servants.' "

Famous Ozark Fruit Belt
The most prcluetive apple and peach country in the world.
An Acre of orchard yields from $100 to $300 worth of fruit
The attention of investors in past years has been drawn to the profit
of fruit growing and many have given, up occupations in ollice and on
farms to engage in what has been descrilied to be an ideal lift. Lack of
knowledge and experience has, however, often sadly interfered with the
hoped fcr outcome, and the enterprise has fallen far short of what it.
could have been if properly gone about. The right plan is clearly the
co-operative one, by which the capital of the various investors is com
bined and the proper class of skilled superintendents and helpers Is em
ployed. The plan is the most productive, and instead of being a weary
and worried cultivator himself, the investor is a bond-holder cutting off
his coupons and drawing his regular and handsome dividends.
The latter is the plan of the Ozark Commercial Orchard & Fruit
Company. The shares of the company can be bought on a basis of $10
down and $ 5 per month.
Each Share Represents an Acre of Orchard.
To have one or ten of these shares is obviously, however, better
than to have one or ten acres of orchard, for the economy of working
the whole great orchard over a large number of small ones results in much
greater profits to the investor.
An investment of a small part of your earnings for a short time
will secure an income for life.
