I'resident Schmidt states he prefers
Kock Island, not only because it i a
better baseball town, but on account of
its geographical situation with refer
erence to the other cities.
L. i. Kddy, secretary of the ltock
Island association, replied to Mr.
Schmidt's letter, explaining to hiui
the lav cf the land locally, and in
forming him that while Kock Island
has been a substantial supporter of
the L'anie in the past, its experience
in tying up with Cheap-John towns
had been a dear one. and it would be
slow to get into the van again until it
was .-itislied as to the linancial stabil
ity of its company.
President Schmidt in answer to
Secretary Kddy 'a letter, gave the as
surance that Ilock I.-land would be
running no chances in entering the
Indiann-Iliinois; that it was a money
maker last season when many of the
other associations went broke and

prospects were that the coining year

I was so weak I couldn't even sit up
in bed. Nothing helped me. I e
pected to soon die of consumption,
when I heard of Dr. King's New Dis
covery. One bottle gave great relief.
I continued to use it, and now am
well and strong. I can't say too
much in its praise." This marvelous

January Clearing Sale of
Jackets, Capes, Suits, Waists.
We shall say but very few words about this
sale. The significance "of it all is too apparent.
We have an immense stock of these things:
Jackets, capes, suits and waists, and the time
has come to clear them out at whatever they
will fetch. We have gone through the entire
stock, looked at every garment, the price it
was marked, what it costs us, ask ourselves
why it hasn't sold, and then with a pencil we
have answered three questions by putting alow
enough price on it to get it tnken away quickly
by whoever first sees it with au admiring eve.
It is impossible to describe them. You all
know what to expect. Handsome, stylish,
shapely, well-tilting garments.
Of one thing you may be sure, the prices are
verv, very low now, lower than we care to
We don't intend that the price shall interfere with
the sale of any garment.
