SOLE AGENTS FOR
Dr. Deimel's Linen-Mesh
The name of a physician who
for years has been perfecting
a fabric for undergarments
which we can now pronounce
the most i&nltarj and com
fortable of any garment made
to be worn next to the skin.
For the same reason that a
linen towel is used to uickl y
dry one's face after washing,
a linen fabric is preferable
to all others for the absorp
tion of perspiration.
This word describes the
weave of the fabric, which is
necessary to secure the rapid
dissipation of the moisture,
which the linen quickly ab
sorbs. We invite patrons
to call and make a fall inves
tigation of the claims of
these goods, as we will send
pamphlets and samples on

SEEING THE BIG SHOW
What it Will Cost to Do the
ADVICE AS TO BEST EOUTE
Pointers That Will be Valuable to
Rock Islanders Plan-,
ing the Trip.
When the time comes for Rock
Island people to start for the Tan
American exposition, those with lim
ited bank accounts will naturally ask
"What is it going to cost to see the
Estimates vary, accordirg to one",
tastes regarding hotels and boarding
houses, transportation, extras at the
midway attractions, etc, but here i
the expense, itemized and totaled, as
it has been figrred out:
Hotels and boarding houses (lodg
in?, breakfast and supper), SI 50 to
flOaday. Luncheon on ibe exposl
tion grounds, or box luncheon, 25
cents to 75 cents a day.
Street car fare to grounds, 10 cents
a day, and 10 cents additional if the
night trip is made.
Admission to grounds, 50 cents
same rate nights.
Guide book to exposition, Including
catalogue of exnlbits, zo cents.
Program of daily events, 5 cents
Admission to all buildings except
those on the midway is free. The
midway, without extras, costs f 7.93
to see. With extras, $13.50.
So, figuring the cheapest in each
instance, the cost of the entire trip
for the usual life of a railroad ticket
5 days to the bir show, wilh
three night trips, is about f 15.
Lo.s Net Include Extras.
This, of course, does cot include
extra accommodations, coming or go
ing, or the money one will naturally
spend for souvenirs or photos of
buildings and grounds. Neither does
it allow for a trip to Niagara Falls
wnicn nine out or ten people will in
sist upon making. At least SI should
be allowed for that, and to see it pro
perly 11.50 will disappear as rapidly
as the water that goes over the falls
each day. So the real total might be
said to be more like f00.
Many people will want to say they
have been in Canada, so 10 cents may
be added for ferriago to tort trie
although the $1.50 rate will do the
trick at the falls and take the tourist
to a spot even more historic than the
old fort across Niagara river.
It costs 50 cents a day to take
camera into the grounds. Roller
chairs are a tritle extn, also, but
that need not La added, as it applies
mostly to invalids, and tbere is no
extra charge for sittlne on the
benches scattered over the grounds
wnen one Is tired.
And, if you're a Baffalo, don't for
get to add 7 cents to the sum total
and save it until you tee Doc" Wad
dell, press agent for Bostock's wild
animal exhibit. He'll tell you what
to do with the 7 cents, and it doesn't
matter whether you're a Buffalo or
not except that if you are you'll ap
appreciate it more. To reveal the
"dark secret" the 7 cents is neces
sary to membership in the Porcu
pines, a new order wnicn is ex
clusively a Pan-American product.
That's ail that need be said about it
at present, except and this tip costs
nothing Porcupines, like Buffaloes,
never give any change.
Beet Bonte to Follow.
To those who would prefer buying
a guide to the city of Buffalo with the
money asked for a fair grounds
catalogue, the following "route of
procession" is offered as the best way
to see the show:
Enter at the north end of the
grounds, pass to the railway exhibits
building, out to a view of the pro
pylaea or monumental entrances to
the exposition on the northern edge
oi tne plaza, ua the east and west
large restaurants may tempt, but
pass them by and. avoiding the en
trances to the midway for the pres
ent, view the electric tower, the cen
terpiece of the exposition. The en
trance to it is by an ornamental
bridge. Inside more restaurants are
encountered, and if you must eat you
must, but try to get just as much
fun as possible out of the fact that
you're eating at an altitude of 200
Next visit, in order, the machinery
and transportation building, court of
fountains to the cast, temple of music

mines building, triumphal bridge to
the east, and wander to the Esplanade,
from where the fountain effects will
