On the Gridiron
In the afternoon there will be
football both here and in Davenport.
The Armour Institute team, of which
Arthur Jens, of this city, is captain
and full back, will arrive in the city
over the Rock Island road at 0:30
this evening and will be quartered at
the Harper house. Coach McCaskrin,
of the M. W. A. All Star team, has
decorated the front of the hotel with
the colors of the visitors, yellow and
black, and of the home team, red,
green and white. The two teams are
equal in weight, each averaging about
155 pounds. The Jocal team has been
strengthened by the addition of four
men, who have not been regularly
playing. Johnson, the full back who
distinguished himself at the begin
ning of the season, but who stopped
playing at the request of his rela
tives, will be back on the team and
there are three new mh, Lawsou and
Drown, of Davenport, and Tamber of
Moline. All are strong men and will
add very materially to the spirit of
the team. The game will be called
at 2:30. A detail of officers wall be
on the ground to preserve order. Fol
lowing is the lineup of the Rock Is
land team: RigTit end, Jens; right
tackle, Moore; right guard, Coyne;

The Gam In Davenport
Many Rock Island enthusiasts will
go to Davenport to see the second
meeting of the season between the
Rock Island and Davenport high
schools. On the former occasion
when they played in this city Daven
port won through superior weipht by
the narrow margin of 11 to 0, but
with the showing the local team has
been making (luring the last few
games it is hoped the beef of the
lowans will be overcome or at least
held down even. All the members of
the local team are in the best possi
ble condition and they are certain to
put up the hardest .kind of a fight.
The game will be called at 2:30 and
will be played at the baseball park
at the west end of the city. The
admission price will be 25 cents and
the pate receipts will lie equally di
vided between the contesting teams.

TRUTH IN PALMISTRY.
A Branch of the Noted Sterling School of
I'almlntry 1 Katabllnhed Here.
Those who are skeptical in regard
to palmistry will find a complete de
parture from the usual run of so-
called "scientific life readers" in the
palmistry parlors which have been
fitted up opposite the new theatre
Dr. C. (. Roberts, who has establish'
ed an enviable reputation through
out the east for the accuracy with
which his school of palmists speak of
the past, present and future, has de
cided to locate in this city. Dr. Rob'
erts is the original founder of the
Sterling school of palmistry of New
York and has established many
schools throuphout the country, each
one being under his direct supervis
ion. The palmists he employs are
not of the tvpe which are usually
identified with such institutions, but
are refined, intelligent women who
have made this science their life
study and whose readings are inter
esting, truthful antl instructive. That
palmistry is a science of much im
portance is now conceded by maiiy
of the most able and intelligent men
of the country, and many eminent
men have attested to the merits of
the Sterling school of palmistry. All
interested in their prospects for the
future will not be disappointed "by
securing a reading from these thor
oughly scientific people. A test of
their ability will only cost 10 cents
while a full life reading is piven at
the low price of 35 cents. Dr. Rol-
erts also has on sale at a reasonable
price, for those who are interested
in the science, n book which will
prove both entertaining and instruct
ive. Modern Sorcery Snrpaased.

IMPORTANT QUESTIONS TO DISCUSS
Lapsation of Younger Members and
Rates to Receive Most
The Woodmen clerks' bulletin for
Xovemlier, just out, devotes consid
erable space to the meeting of the
national officers of the Ijocal Camp
Clerks association which has been
called by Head Clerk Hawes, in ac
cordance with the authority vested
in him at the last head camp when
the association was formed, to meet
here during the week beginning Mon
day, Feb. 10, 11)02. This meeting will
be uational in its scope, ns all camp
clerks in the order are members of
the association and arc invited to be
present and take part in the discus
sions. The expense of the national
officers and 11 members of the execu
tive counciT will lie paid durinp their
attendance upon the meeting out of
Hie general fund of the organization
and the recommendation is made
that all camps pay the expenses of
their clerks. The number that will
be in attendance is largely specula
tive at this time, but it is certain
there will be several hundred clerks
from all parts of the jurisdiction of
the order in the city during the week
of the meeting. Those who do uot
attend in person' are given the right
to express their preferences on any
question that may be brought up by

Ohio, secretary of the Local Camp
Clerks' association, defining in a gen
eral way the objects of the meetings
and stating the main questions that
will be brought up for discussion. In
the first place there will be the per
fecting of the organization of the as
sociation, which was only begun at
the last'head camp. One of the im
portant questions to come tip will be
that pertaining to the lapsation of
younger members of the Woodmen
society and another will be that of
rates. Otherwise the' matters to be
handled will relate exclusively to the
duties of the clerks and, as President
Hoyt in his letter says, "no attempt
will be made to discuss or criticize
tlie affairs of any other department."
Solves Odd Claim on Insurance
With the receipt of a check for
$1,000 by A. B. Spickler, of Kewanee,
the end comes to a case that has
proved one of the most difficult of
settlement in the history of the Mod
Several years ago Martin Larson, a
young man whose father, Louis Lar
son, lived in Kewanee, joined a Wood
men camp in Iowa, taking out a pol
icy for $1,000. Later he moved to
Oklahoma, where he purchased a
farm. While tin a visit to Wichita,
Kan., he was attacked by typhoid
fever and died in a hospital there.
From papers on his person the hos
pital authorities discovered his fath
er lived in Kewanee and so notified
him of the son's death.
The old gentleman had been send
ing his earnings back to' his wife in
Sweden, ho had no money with which
to make the trip to Wichita, but was
able to borrow $250 and with this
money he arranged for the burial of
the son's body.
The claim for the life insurance,
which was made pavable to "legal
heirs," was at once put in and al
lowed, but then the trouble began
The young man had no wife or child'
ron, so, according to the laws o Illi
nois, the father would have received
only one-eighth of the $1,000 and
mother and brothers and sisters in
Sweden the balance. After he fath
er's expense in regard to the funeral
it was thought he ought to have more
than this sum, so the matter was re
ferred to Mr. Spickler to look up and
see if some more equitable arrange
ment could be made.
Mr. Spickler found that under the
laws of Iowa, in which the young
man had taken out his policy, the
father would receive one-half and
the mother one-half. This seemed
better, so the proper papers were
sent to the mother in Sweden for sig
nature. But tor some reason, she
would not sign, so the matter was
Then, it was found that a new law
in Oklahoma, where the young man
had been a citizen, made the father
the pole heir in such a case as this.
From that time matters progressed
smoothly and the check for the $1,000
The old man, who cannot speak
English, although he has been here
seven or eight years, is of course
overjoyed at the termination of the
matter and will leave this week for
Sweden, where he will spend his re
maining days in-the home, for the
final payment of. which the money he
has now received will go.
