PLANS FOE THEIR ACCOMMODATION

cured for the Meet
ing. From the rejmrts that are being1
received at the Woodmen head office
it is lclieved 1hat the original esti
mate of between 200 and .100 caiup
clerks who will attend the meeting of
the camp clerks of the order here
next month is far too low. There is
good reason for believing1 that the
number will run above 500.
About 100 clerks who intend com
ing have leen heard from and field
workers in this and the other north
central states reHrt that the attend
ance wiM be peneral.
Owing to the lack of positive assur
ance in regard to the number that
will attend it is impossible to arrange
rates on the railroads, but as it is
the intention to have the camps bear
the expenses of the delegates this
may not have much effect upon the
size of the -meeting.
Will Probably Konce Theatre.
An increase of the estimate of th
number of delegates renders it nec
essary for the officers who are ar
ranging for the meeting to make
larger plans for the accommodation
of the visitors. In the first place the
meeting place will probably have to
be changed from the head office,
where it has been the intention to
hold it. to some larger place, and
there is some, talk of securing the
new Illinois theatre for the week.
Then there is the propostion of
hotel accommodations. The visit will
l-e certain to greatU- exceed in num

awful bane, itching piles, with irri
tating eczema, with any itchiness of
the skin. Doan's Ointment relieves
and cures. Here's Kock Island tes
timony to prove it:
P. Kooney, bricklayer, says: "I suffer
ed from protruding1 and itchinghemor-
rhoids for 15 years. They were of an
aggravated form, and there was al
most constant irritation. I tried a
lot of remedies, and if I had used
one-half of the cures, sure cures pre
scribed by my neighbors, I would
have done nothing else but put on ap
plications. I even consulted a physi
cian, who treated me, but up until I
used Doan's Ointment I never got
hold of anything that did me the
least bit of good. Obtaining1 a box
of this wonderful preparation at the
Harper House drug- store, I applied it
carefully as directed. It did me so
much good that I procured two more.
After I stopped the treatment the in
tolerable itching- ceased."

FAVOR JUDGE TRIMBLE
KoV State Commander of Hie Grand
Army lie lore Coming En
campment. Judge II. M. Trimble, of Princeton,
who this week is exchanging places
in court with Judge W. II. tJest, will
likely be the next commander of the
Illinois department of the (Jrand
Army of the Republic, the state con
vention of which is to occur in Rock
Island in May. However, it must not
lie understood that the judge is an
aspirant for the office. He is not do
ing any wire-pulling, nor does he in
tend to, as he feels he has lived long
enough nmong the old soldiers for
them to know whether he is entitled
to and capable of filling the office.
Judge Trimble has concented to
his name being presnted before the
state encampment, only on one con
dition and that is that there be no
spiriteil contest. His- friends over
the state in the ranks of the Grand
Army are quietly at work with a
view to making him the unanimous
choice of the convention for com
mander. It certainly would be an ad
mirable selection. Judge Trimble is
one of the leading lawyers of the
state, and until his election to the
bench in 1S'.)7 was in partnership in
law with Gen. T. J. Henderson, for
mer member of congress. While not
associated in business, they still have
offices together in Princeton, each
also having a son in the office.
WOOD WORKS EXPANDS:
NEW OFFICE BUILDING
The new office building of the Rock
Island Wood works, located at Elev
enth street and Sixth avenue, is about
reaily to be occupied, and the removal
from the old building will take in the
next few days. The factory at pres
ent employs between fifty and sixty
men and the proprietors expect to
materially increase that number dur
ing the next season. The room now
occupied by the olliees in the build
ing is to be taken by machinery as
soon as vacated and the capacity of
the plant increased by so much.
l'hen next season it is probable that
mother addition to the factory build
ing will be made. The surroundings
of the factory are such that growth
need not be hampered by lack of
room, and at the present rate the
Kock Island Wood works will soon
be accounted one of the most impor
