It's Quality That Counts
In Coal it's quality that makes
heat, it's quality- that retains it, it
is quality that makes possible
consumption of 90 per cent of
the combustible part of it, leav
ing a light, clean ash; lastly, it's
quality that lessens your fuel
bills you're not paying for dirt,
refuse or unburnables. The coal
we handle both hard and soft de
serves all the good things we and
our patrons say for it. A ton will
talk as loudly as a carload.

bruised and battered condition, as the
result of being run down Tuesday
night by a hack said to belong to

is that the victim of the occurrence
was not killed outright, being struck
with violent force, by the horses at
tached to the vehicle, which was be
ing drive; in a reckless manner, and
was thrown violently 1o the pave
ment. When picked up and conveyed
home it was found that he had sus
tained, a number of severe cuts about
the head ami face ami also numerous
bruises all over his body. One of his
ankles was also sprained and he was
in other ways pretty well used up.

Several representatives of the l)av
enjHirt .V Western Electric Interur
ban Kailway company of this city
were iii Muscatine a few days ago to
learn something of the sentiment of
the people of that place regarding an
eleclric line from .Wilton to Musca
tine. They found that the people fa
vored such a proposition, believing
it would be a great benefit to the
city. The company, which has its
plans laid for a line running from
Davenport through Itiiffalo. 1'lue
(irass, Stockton, Wilton, Kochestcr,
Tipton, .Media niesv ille. Lisbon. Mt.
Vernon, F.ertrani and Cedar Kapids, is
also contemplating a branch line
from Wilton to Muscatine. The gen
tlemen saw the mayor and a few of
the business men in Muscatine, and
came back convinced that the idea
would be better than for the line
from Davenport direct to Muscatine.
A memlM-r of the company stated yes
terday that they were confident of
securing a franchise from the city
council, but if the council refused to
grant it. they would ask that the
luatter be settled at a special election.
It was the expressed wish of llev.
Dr. F. E. Judd, who died this week at.

This wish was made known in a let

to his wife and daughter, who were
visiting at Marsha II tovv n. They will
come to Davenport to be present at
the interment, nml si brief service
will be held at the grave. Xo word

INCREASE IN PAY OF
BUBAL CABBIEBS 0BDEBED
The postmaster general has issued
a general order announcing the in
creuse of pay of rural free delivery
mail carriers $100 each per annum.
This is the sequel to a successful
movement among the employes of
this branch of the service and the
announcement that the postmaster
general hnd issued the all important
order will be learned with pleasure
by all friends of the'rural free de
livery system. The carrier perforins
in the course of a day practically all
of the work required of the ordinary
postmaster. In fact a rural carrier
is a sub-post master his responsibil
ities being confined to a certain num
ber of patrons of the otlice. In the
past the' salary of the rural carrier
was not calculated to induce a life of
profligacy but sufficient to attract
into the service men entirely capable
and who take an interest in the work
and strive to improve the service. The
increase to .flint) will have" the effect
of still further raising the standard.
The raising of the salary will prob
ably end the agitation to substitute
the contract system of delivery for
flu system now prevailing. Friends
of rural delivery see in the sugges
tion great danger to the efficiency of
the service. On slur routes the gov
eminent lets the contract for carry
ing the pouch mail to the different
star routes offices to the lowest bid
der. No particular ability is required
to do this work; any man or boy who
knows the road can deliver the
pouches. Put rural delivery service
requires ability of a different sort.
It is more than likely that the lowest
bidder would be wholly incapable of
doing the work required of a rural
carrier. Patrons of rural routes do
not care to have their mail delivered
by the lowest bidder, ami if price is
the only qualification of the man who
is to handle their mail they would
rather do without the service.
