HELP THEM TO CELEBRATE.
Odd Fellows Most Have Anttlntance InThelr
Fourth of July Demonstration.
The committee on subscriptions for
the Odd lellows' i-ourth of July cele
bration is hustling for the funds es
sential to make the demonstration
what it should be to a city, the size ot
Rock Island, and it hopes to receive
such encouragement on the part of
the citizens of uock Islam! us will
justify the carrying out of the origi
nal plans for such an alTair as will be
in keeping with the patriotic teach
ings of the day and the public spirit
of 'the community. There is eveVy
assurance that thousands of people
from surrounding cities will come to
uock Island that day if the order re
ceives encouragement sufficient to
warrant it in going ahead with the
program. The fact that the Retail
Merchants' association has cooperated
with the Odd Fellows in their arrange
ments for the ctlebration shows a re
alisation of what such a celebration
will be to the citv, and if the citizens
will give the committee the encour
agement it deserves, Uock Island will
have a blow-out this year that we will
all be proud of.

everything is made pleasing to pa
