BOOST FOR ROCK ISLAND.
Its Arsenal Brine the City World Wide
Under the heading, "The Cities Are
Full of Pride, Challenging Each to

articles, the following reference is
made .today to Rock Island: "Rock
Inland, 111., claims distinction as the
site of the largest United States ar
senal and armory. It was first occu
pied by the government as a frontier
fort in 1815 and has ever since grown
steadily in importance. In 1810 it
was made an ordnance depot and later
I lock island arsenal was institut
ed. During the civil war it was used
as a military prison. A large propor
tion of the supplies and ammunition
used during the recent war with Spain
were turned out bvthe J.UUU men em
ployed in the government shops con
rected with the-arsenal. In less than
five months, while the war was in
progress, the expenditures for sup
plies and wages aggregated f 2,000,000.
and tbe articles manufactured ranged
from breecbloading held guns to tin
cups. The last congress, pleased with
tbe work done during the war, has
ordered the establishment at the ar
mory of a plant for the making of
The following is said of Molina:
Moline, 111., is noted all overtheciv-
ilied world for its implements. No
other city of its size in the world
manufactures so many. The first
steel plows ever made were hammered
ont bv old John Deere, who founded
his little smithy in 1847 at Grand De
tour, and a couple of years later re
moved to Moline, whose wonderful
water power was just beginning to be i
appreciated. In the then little vil
lage of Moline he began to work with
a doen employes in a small wooden
building bv the river bank, on the
site of the present shops. Todav the
shops are the largest and finest in the
world, and the piows and other tools
turned out are familiar to every civ
ilized farmer. Moline has another
large plow factory, second only in
size to the first mentioned. In fact.
over half the steel plows used in the
world are said to be made in Moline."

It's too hot and too early to buy new fall suits for boys. It's a pair of trousers that
will fill the bill to weather through the season. Most mothers find It difficult to
keep pants on the boy. M. K. have just received 105 dozen, or 1,260 pairs of

Children, Sizes 3 to 16.
If you will provide your boy with a pair of these breeches the little fellow can roll
and romp to his heart's content, playing leap-frog, sneaking bases and sliding
down cellar doors, and every other abuse to which a boy exposes his pants, is pro
vided for in the material and make of our renowned Hawthone Cassimere knee
pants, which are selling at
iii!J 49 CENTS
These. Pants Were Never Manufactured to Sell
for Less Than 75 Cents.
