THE TGr3. TT"Er'TESD AT
A LITTLE BIG WASTE.
J71ISTINGUISH between economy and wisdom.
Sitting at home to save shoe-leather is econo
my, but it is scarcely wisdom. In the same
way, doing without Ivory Soap is economy
but it isn't wise; your risks are greater than all
possible saving. Every cheap soap contains free
alkali. Now, free alkali will eat its way through
the new oil , cloth on the kitchen floor. Imagine,
then, what it will do in a single Monday's wash
ing Is such economy wise?

OF HISTORIC VALUE
Copy of Rock Island Banner,

Telln of Changing of County Name,

A copy of the Kock Island Banner,
the second weekly paper established

been found in the "irchives of the
court house at Vandalia. 111., and
forwarded to Hon. M. V. Hurst as a
present from the tinuer. Kobert Y.
The paper is 21 very respectable ap
M'ariur -paye sheet and contains
many things .of interest to later
Uock Islanders. One of the items is
to the effect that the name of Steph
enson, which the town then bore, had
been changed in a special charter
just passed by the legislature to
Rock Island. The change did not
reallv liecome effective till in March.
Another news item concerned the
Washington ball given on the evening
of Feb. 2:.' by the Vanoourts, then
proprietors of the Rock Island house,
which proved a failure because of the
breaking up of the ice in the river,
which rendered it impossible for
young folks from across the river to
attend. Another column is devoted
to a letter descriptive of Tilaek
Hawk's Watch Tower with the lones
of the Indians then recently in jx-ir.-

The only condition of the contest is that to win the tickets you must have a copy of THE ARGUS in your hand

In order that ths contest maybe absolutely fair, the person who carries THE ARGUS tickets will not be se
