mission as Soon ns Weather Permits
The new open cars for the Tri-City
Railway company arrived from St.
Louis over the Peoria roai last night.
They were shipped under canvas cov
ers, "but when they arrived the major
ity of the covers had been pretty badly
demoralized by the strong wind that
prevailed yesterday, and the shreds
were tied in knots or tucked away to
keep them from being lost entirely.
Tne bodies of tbe cars are finished
on the exterior in the standard canary
yellow of the company, and in
tbe interior in natural wood. Their
numbers range from 85 to 1)4, inclu
sive. Six of them are for the Fourth
avenue line here and the other four are
to be assigned to the Locust street loop
The car bodies are up-to-date in
every respect. They are about thirty-four
feet over all and three feet
longer than the ordinary car bodies.
The long side steps or running
board is so arranged that it can be
folded up. They also have a movable
side guard. This feature is some
thing entirely new for this section of
the country, at least. The side guards
on tbe open cars heretofore have been
stationary, and when the car is turned
about, the conductors and moternien
have been compelled to take them
off of one side and put them on the
other. This' will all be done away
On the new cars the brass handles
which adorn the uprights supporting
the car roof extend all the way up
and the side guards are attached to
these. When it is desired to ran the
car in the opposite direction the side
guard on the right side, facing the
way the car is about to start, is raised
to the roof and the folding step low
ered. On the left side the tide guard
is lowered so as to prevent passengers
stepping of! on that side and the step
is folded up in orcer to prevent pas
sengers stepping upon that side of
the car. In this manner not only are
passengers prevented from endanger
ing their lives from getting on and
off of the wrong side, but the motor-
men and conductors are saved a con
siderable amount of labor in making
Ad instable Tracks.
The car bodies will be equipped
with new adjustable trucks in tbe
shops in Davenport. These trucks
have been constructed oy tne company
and are the latest in the way of trucks
for street cars where trncks are inter
changeable as they are here.
By means of additional side pieces
to the truck frame the wheels can be
placed at the desired distance apart
to suit the length of the car body.

MEETING OF PRESS CLUB.
Pleasant Catherine of Trl-Clty Newspaper
Men at Davenport.
The Tri-City Press club had its
monthly meeting at Davenport last
night, the Iowa fraternity assuming
the part of hosts, and providing royal
entertainment for the Hock Island
and Moline members. The newspa
per folk gathered in the parlors of
the Kimball house. Aside from rou
tine business matters disposed of,
various matters of interest to the
membership were considered, includ
ing reports from the different com
mittees, the Dewey committee telling
of the presentation through President
J. E. Calkins, of Davenport, of the
club's invitation to the admiral to
visit the three cities during his con
templated western tour. F. O. Van
Galder, editor of the Modern Wood
man, of this city, was elected a mem
ber of the club by acclamation. J. II.
McKeever. of Moline, the efficient
secretary of the . club, who is
to spend a portion of tbe summer
abroad, tendered his resignation in
writing, but it was not accepted, W. F.
SchaDenberger, of Moline. being cho
sen to fill the office of secretary during
Mr. McKeever's absence. It having
been learned that Mr. McKeever was
starting last night on his trip, a com
mittee composed of Herbert Churchill,
of Rock Island, and John Sundine, of
Moline, was delegated to meet Mr.
McKeever at Davenport on the D.. R
I. & N. W. passenger train leaving
here at 0 o'clock, conveying to him
the compliments of the club in ses
sion, and an evidence as well as an
expression of the club's good will.
A motion of B. F. Tillinghast, of
Davenport, was adopted establishing
a bnreau of information for the mu
tual benefit of publishers and em
ployes, tbe bureau to be in charge of
the secretary, who will receive and
tile applications for employment, and
do likewise with applications of news
papers needing help.
Following the business session a de
licious luncheon was served, after
which there was a program of songs
and piano selections by Harry E. Down
er and Cleo McCormk-k, respectively,
Mr. Downer rendering several "coon"
songs with delightful effect, and Mr.
McCormack playing charmingly a
mi nailer of up-to-date numbers.
Kerscb, of Rock Island, whereupon
The members delved into a variety of
topics, which were discussed to the
iDterest and profit of all present. A
rising vote of thanks was extended to
Messrs. Downer and McCormack.
When the hour for adjournment had
arrived Assistant Superintendent Me
Elroy, of the Tri-City Railway com
pany, announced there was a car in
waiting for the Rock Island and Mo
line reprcsentativee, and they, were
whizzed across the bridg and to their

Caught a Dreadful Cold.
Marion Kooke, manager for T. M
Thompson, a large importer of fine
millinery at 1 bos Milwaukee avenue,
Chicago says: "During the late severe
weather I caught a dreadful cold which
kept me awake at night and made
me unfit to attend my work during the
day. One of my milliners was taking
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for a
severe cold at that time, which
seemed to relieve her so quickly that
I bought some for myself. It acted
like magic and 1 began to improve at
once. I am now entirely well and
feel very pleased to acknowledge its
merits." For sale by all druggists.
Does It Pay to Bay Cheap?
A cheap remedy for coughs and
colds is all right, but you want some
thing that will relieve and cure tbe
more severe and dangerous results of
throat and lung troubles. What shall
you do? Go to a warmer and m,ore
regular climate? Yes, if possible; if
not possible for you, then in either
case take the only remedy that has
been introduced in all civilized coun
tries with success in severe throat and
lung troubles, "Boschee's German
Syrup." It not only heals and stim
ulates the tissues to destroy the germ
disease, but allays inflammation,
causes easy expectoration, gives a
good night's rest, and cures the pa
tient. Try one bottle. Recommend
ed many years by all druggists in the
woild. 'Sample bottles at T. 11.
