difference between gambling and en
gaging in legitimate business lies in
the fact that througb the latter an
equivalent is returned for what is re

attempt is made to get something for
nothing. Of course in " gambling,
there is a mutual risk involved, but
that does not justify either party.

How to Core the Grip.
Remain quietly at home and take
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy as di
rected and a quick recovery Is- sure to
follow. That remedy counteracts
any tendency of the grip to result in
pneumonia, which is really the only
serious danger. Among the tens of
thousands who have used it for the
grip not one case has ever been re
ported that did not recover. For
sale by all druggists.
Recent experiments show that all
classes of foods may be completely di
' gested by a preparation called Kodol
I Dyspepsia Care, which absolutely di
gests what you eat. As it is the only
combination of all the natural digest-
ants ever devised, the demand for it
has become enormous. B. IL Bieber

Sherrard Miners at Odds With
Employers Other Doings of
At yesterday's meeting of the
Tri-City Labor congress it was
voted to petition the Rock Island
city council to increase the num
ber of members of . the board of
education to 10 in conformity with
the state law. The subject was gener
ally discussed and the action was
taken with practically no, opposition.
A committee was appointed to circu
late the petition, and an effort will be
made to get it before the next meet-
in? of the council. The action de
sired implies the abolition of the spe
cial charter under - which the Rock
Island schools have been operating for
many years and the coming under the
general law. There are many who
have favored this step and
many who oppose it.

insr company and the employes at
Sherrard. The trouble has arisen
over a difference in the interpretation
of the contract between the company
and the men. One clause in the agree
ment calls for the settlement of differ
ences through the state officers of the
mine workers, and this method will
in all probability be used if an under
standing is not otherwise reached

ARTHURS TO WIND UP
CANVASS THIS WEEK
Meetings of the general theatre
committee were held Saturday and
Sunday evenings at the Rock Island
Club to learn what progress had been
made by Canvasser Arthurs during
the week and outline a plan of action
for the coming week. When Mr. Ar
thurs renewed his canvass last Tues
day one-half of the tickets had already
been placed, these having been sub
scribed for during , the summer. In
the past few days Mr. Arthurs has
drawn considerably closer to the re
quired ' $10,000. He feels highly en
couraged and sincerely believes that
if he is given the assistance in the
matter of committeemen accompany
ing him on his soliciting tours the
whole seat sale can be completed the
present week. The theatre commit
tee has placed itself at the disposal of
Mr. Arthurs, requesting him to make
use of the members in any capacity
he chooses to the end that the project
may be weathered through without
MEETING OF MERCHANTS.
Important Session of Kock Island Associ
Important matters are to come be
fore the monthly meeting tonight in
Mitchell & Lynde building of the
Rock Island Retail Merchants' associ
ation. Reports are to be heard from
the delegates to the state convention
at Decatur, officers elected and other
business of interest to the whole
membership taken up. It is the ur
gent .desire of the officers that there
be a full attendance.
To Fay Militiamen.
There is now a bill in the legisla
ture appropriating $125,000 to pay
the men of the Illinois naval militia
who left their vocations at the out
break. of the Spanish war. The bill
also provides pay for members of the
National Guard who were rejected on
examination, the idea being to re
munerate them for time lost between
the day they were ordered out and
the day of their rejection. There are
naval militiamen and others in this
city who will benefit by this measure
if it is passed.
