THE AH6HJS, SATURDAY, JULY 19, 1902
May seem a queeroccupation,
but it is one that is being car
ried on every day. It seems
hardly possible that a mer
chant could deal in "sunshine"
but that is what Shields has
been doing and is doing now.
By "sunshine" we do not mean
the warming rays of old Sol,
but we mean the "sunshine"
of contentment and happiness
which radiates in every home
where Shields' advanced meth
od of grocery selling is known
and has been tried much to the
satisfaction of the housewife.
Pure fresh groceries and pro
visions at prices which enable
a housewife to purchase plenty
of them bring" sunshine into
the home. Why not try it?

ROCK ISLAND. ILL
TIEUP NOW BROKEN
Rock Island Sends Illinois Divi

NOTHING DOING I0B 24 HOURS
I toad bed Softened by Rains, Making
Fast Travel Hazard
The tieup on the IJock Island be
tween here anil Chicago caused by
the washouts on the main line be
tween Tiskilwa and 15nrean was
broken this morning, after having
been in effect for a period of nearly
twenty-four hours, through the use
of the tracks of the lSurlington from
this city to LaSalle by way of Den
rock. Trains from the west were
sent iuto Chicago that way early in
the morning, and trains from the
east headed by the fast. mail, due here
at 0:50 a. .in., began arriving about
The trains were sent over the Uur
lington tracks with a pilot engine
and conductor from the latter, and,
owing to the fact that the distance
is greater and that there is but one
track to handle the business of both
roads, the service is badly demoral
ized. The telegraph lines are cri
plcd also, which adds to the difficul
ty. Of course all trains will be sev
eral hours late as long as the present
method has to be used.
For the through trains over the
main line and to Kansas City last
night the Kock Island made up extras
in the tri-cities anil sent them out
only a little behind the regular time.
This morning a stub was gotten to
gether and started up to Tiskilwa and
intermediate points. There was no
afternoon train to Chicago.
Four trains followed each othvr
into the city this morning, and as the
result of bunching the trains in order
to get them over the 15urlingtons
single track, the yards in this city
are congested and a great deal of
confusion both to shippers and the
express companies is the conse
quence. The same condition pre
vails to a less extent in Moline and
All I J ne Suffer.
The Kock Island is not the only
road that is running behind time on
account of damaged tracks. All tin
roads in .this vicinity are affected
more or less. Kven where there has
been no washout the roadbed is sof
tened in places and is unsafe for
fast travel. In consequence of this,
irregularity is the rule everywhere
and the mails are greatly interfered
with. The longer the rain keeps up
the worse will the difficulty become,
as. the ballast will continue to settle
into Ihe mud and the uneveiiness of
the tracks will become greater.

Employe Who Circulates Petition is

,i (There was a strike in the black
smithing department of the Rock
Island Plow works yesterday after
noon ami as a result the power was
cut off of that portion of the factory
about 4 o'clock and there was noth
ing doing. According to the men's
story, the trouble began some time
back when an order went into effect
requiring the men to oerate their
machines till the whistle' blew, in
stead of cleaning up in time to leave
the building at the signal.
The men determined to come back
in some fashion. The company pays
twieeTn month, on the Saturdays
that ' come nearest the 1st andthe
ljth. This brings pay-days some
times two and sometimes three weeks
apart, and the irregularity has oc
casioned considerable complaint in
the past. The men determined to
circulate a petition for weekly pay
days. It was originated in the black
smithing department and one of the
men was appointed to circulate it.
lie was told that if he got into trou
ble the other employes would stand

When the petition was carried into
the molding department yesterday
afternoon the man who bore it was
dismissed from the service of the
company and the other blacksmiths,
true to their promise, quit work and
refused to take up their tools again
till he was reinstated.
At a conference this morning be
tween the officers of the company
and the men the difficulty was set
tled and the latter agreed to return
to work Monday. The man who was
discharged is to be reinstated, but
the company has a year in which to
take him back. On the other hand,
pay .day will, after August 1, come
regularly on. alternate Wednesdays.;
