Home Improvement Association
to Give Prizes for Orna
COMPETITION OPEN TO ALL CITIZENS
Kffort to He Made to Mako the
Movement a l'opular
At the meeting of the Home Im
provement associat ion, which was
ncld yesterday afternoon at the home
f Mrs. Juila Rosenfielil, the first def
inite plans for the encouragement of
improving private grounds about the
city were outlined. It was decided to
give a series of prizes, open to all who
choose to compete, for the best re
sults attained along several different
lines in promoting the exterior at
tractiveness of homes. There will be
a first aii'l second prize in each case,
the nature of which is to be decided
upon at a later meeting. The awanl
will be made on each of the follow

The matter of improvement of
school grounds was discussed and the
secretary. Hon. William Jackson, was
directed to confer with Stipt. llaydeu
with a view- of si'cnring the coopera
tion on the part of the principals of
the different schools. It was pointed
out that conditions surrounding most
of the school buildings are capable
of improvement and the pupils should
be enlisted in the work.
The tines of the association will be
f 1 for adults and ." cents for children
and the amount will be returned to
the members in seeds and bulbs. The
fee was made very light in tinier that
there might be no barrier to securing
a large membership, thereby making
the movement popular. Seeds will
be bought in large tpiantities and the
members will have the benefit of the
reduction secured and arrangements
will probably be made with local flor
ists for the furnishing of roots and
bulbs where thev are desired. '
The movement for the improvement
of I.ongiiew park as suggested in The
Argus last week seems ttt be meeting
with favor, and already there have
lecn offers of private aid to the enter
prise, provided the city will start it
off with a moderate appropriation.
Favorable action on the part of the
council at this time would probably
serve to crvslalize the movement in

TOBACCO OR QUIT SCHOOL
Dr. Herbert F. Fisk, principal of
the Academy of Northwestern Uni
versity, who asked the boys under
him to quit smoking cigarettes or
leave the school, has received assur
ances from a number of students that
they would give up the use of tobacco.
None of the boys has left the school
because of the principal's talk.
The reasons which led him to ad
dress the students so severely Dr.
Fisk set forth in the following state
ment: "Whatever may be thought of
the use of tobacco by grown men
there can be no 'division of opinion
among educators as to the injurious
effects, both physical and mental,
when tobacco is used by hoys or
by young- men who have not yet
reached maturity. In many cases it
produces serious weakness of the
heart. On this account it is prohibit
ed to athletes while in training for
competitive games. Not less dis
tinctly marked are the effects of to
bacco using upon scholarship than
upon the physical endurance of stu
dents. It is randy the case that a
student who makes any use of tobac
co attains to superior scholarship. A
complete tabulation of the scholar
ship and tobacco using habits of
young men in the academy nt one
time discovered that out of :t00 young
men -'-J jcr cent of the whole number
made more or less use of tobacco.
Aiming the seventy-five having the
highest standing only two were to
bacco users, fir ':! per cent. Among
the second quarter in scholarship
there were eleven, fir II per cent.
Aiming the thir l quarter fifteen, fir
jht cent, while among the-lowest
quarter there were forty-two. or j7
ier cent. Of all forms of tobacco us
ing.' cigaret te,s are without question
the most harmful.
Politeness, such as rules the social
circles of the liest type; model Eng

Henry these are to be added to the

Terre Haute's First Baseman
Will Not Play In St.
UNTIL HIS CLUB IS PAID $300
According to Agreement Other
Notes of the Dia
mond. William II. Richardson, the Terre
Haute club's first baseman, has been
ordered to report in St. Louis for
spring practice with the St. Louis Na
tional league clnb.
Richardson signed with St. Louis
last fall with the understanding that
the Terre Haute club would be paid
for his release, but this condition has
not lieen fulfilled, and until it is he
will remain loyal to the local club.
President Rohison, of the St. Louis
club, wrote Richardson that the Terre
Haute club could not hold him and
advised him 1o jump. Kichnrdson.
however, did not accept the advice
ami wrote back to KobisoiT that he
would have to pay the Terre Haute
club $300 for his services.

Davy Jones, the Hock ford player
who jumped his contract with the
Chicago .National league club and
signed with the St. Louis team if the
American legue, is likely to be sorry
for his act it m, says President .lames
A. Hart. It is Mr. Hart's intention to
make an example of the player and
yesterday the head of the Chicago
club said he will have .limes placed
in jail if such a thing is possible. "I
am going to make an example of this
player," Mr. Hart said yesterday.
This contract-jumping has got to
stop as far as I am concerned, .lump
ing a contract is not the worst 1hing
which Jones did, however, his fit her
dealings with me forming the bus's f-f
a strong suit. It is my intention to
put the young man in jail if 1 can.
and if this cannot be done some sort
of punishment will be meted out to
him. Here is the contract which
Jones signed," continued Mr. lla't.
producing a legal-looking document
from his desk, "and here." he added
meditatively. "is something else
which he did not sign and which he
gave me to understand he did sign.
Well, I hac his name ttt the contract,
anyway, and that is enough.
"When he signed the contract I paid
to him the .sum of .$100, that being
the amount which he required " for
advance money. That money has not
been returned to me. .bines wrote a
letter some time after having signed
the contract and told me in a sort of
cold-blooded manner that this was
the ball players' year and that he was
going to take advantage if every
thing he could get. He also said that,
it. was his intcnlion of paying back
the $100. That was not the thing for
him to do. He has money which he
knows does not belong to him and
which he secured by asserting in
writing fiver his own signature that
he was going to perform some duty
for the Chicago club, which he has
not performed and which he says he
will not perform."
The Terre Haute team will get to
gether early. It will report April 1.
April 5 and 0 it will play Rill Krcig's
Chattanooga team and has later dates
with the Nashville team.

season for the small admission fee of

One peculiarity about the New York
Casino productions is that they must
be equipped with excellent people to
make them go. Cheap, ordinary ac
tors will not answer the purpose.
This has lieen exemplified so often,
so that it has come to be known that
the mere announcement of the com
ing of tine of these famous produc
tions means that the public is to see
tine of the most efficient organiza
tions in the country. "The Telephone
(iirl," that celebrated musical come
dy, which is announced for Saturday
afternoon and evening at the Illinois,
is no exception to the rule. Willi
cheap people it would not be a suc
cess. With people of the most ex
pensive grade, it has proved ami is
proving a howling triumph. The role
of Hans Nix, the impossible but ab
sorbingly comical (ierman inspector,!
is in the hands of Dave Iewis, fine of i
the best comedians on the American
tage. The Heauty Fairfax is Marie
Kichmond. whose comeliness alone
has won her fame. Pearl Ilight is
the Eslclle. the queen of the tele
phone, as the song has it, and she has
eceived the most flattering encomi
ums from press and public. She has
a winsome, magnetic personality an 1
beauty. Resides, she possesses that
chic which is so essential, if not sb-
"solutely indispensable, in the part.
The nhiv founded fin the iioem sets
forth the storv of "Ostler Joe." and
deals 'with scene in Annie Smith's
London career, vividlv pointing the
moral. "It is better to live in a hovel
of- virt ue 1 han a palace of infamy."
1 tie product urn contains not ning sug
gestive, nothing vulgar. It is a ser
mon set in dramatic magnificence at
the Illinois theatre tomorrow even
ing. I'nconvent ionality is the keynote
of CIvde Fitch's work in "The Cow-
Iniy and the. Inly." which S. Miller
Kent will produce at the Illinois
theatre Sunday. The cowboy in ques
tion comes f roni the east, being a
Harvard graduate. He dresses in the
height of fashion, and is derided as
a dude by the lady with whom lie
falls in love, lteneath his polished
appearance, however, is as brave and
strong a nature as that of any typi
cal man of the plains, as circum
stances soon bring to light, and Ted
dy 'North is greatly beloved by his
rough friends. Another unconven
tional idea is having the heroine a
married woman. Her husband is
weak and worthless, but the cowboy
loes her strongly and silently.
Eventually the husband gets killed
while planning an clopment and the
lovely wife is freed, but before the
cowboy can claim her the shadow of
suspicion falls on her and she is ac
cused of murdering .her husband.
The cowboy heroically assumes the
guilt, and is finally acquitted and the
real murderer is brought to light.
The trial scene in a typical western
court, affords Mr. Kent unusual op
portunities for strong acting and he
makes the most of them.
"TheStarbucks," which enjoyed such
a long and successful run at the Dear
born theatre. Chicago, this season is
the latest work of Opie Read, novel
ist antl dramatist. The scene of the
play is an obscure spot in the moun
tains of Tennessee where the Starbuck
family lives. Mix Read has a thor
ough acquaintance with his people
and places, and presents an "atmos
phere" play, although not deHnding
fin character study alone for effect.
However, the rugged Jascr Stnrbuck
and his family, the negro servants
and the simple minded jieople" of the
neighborhofMl add a charm of their
own. "The Starbucks" is 1mm iked for
the Illinois this evening.
Chambcrlin, Kindt Co. are now
giving to Rock Island a line of at
tractions equal to thoc enjoyed by
any community jn the country the
size of this. The people here are not
slow to appreciate the efforts to pro
vide them gofsl entertainment, and
the management will find the patron
age increasing as that confidence that
should exist between the public and
the manager of a theatre becomes
firmer. Since Chamberlin, Kindt &
Co. took the Illinois it is but justice
to them to say the standard of the
attractions visiting the house has
lieen on the improve.
