LANDLORDS ARE IN A COMBINE
Owners of Heated Flats Get Together on the Coal
Those Rock Island citizens who live
in heated flats are no doubt congratu
lating: themselves that they will es
cape facing the vexed coal question.
They very likely feel that they are
prepared to withstand the crisis
that hard coal at $13.50 a ton whole
sale and oft coal .chasing" itself up
ward with a touching- exhibition -f
sympathy is bound to bring- about. ;
Hut it will be well for thein to
pause before becoming- unduly ex
uberant over the outlook, for thi
landlords have not been blind to the
conditions of things, and they usually
show themselves capable of coping
with any emergency of this charac
ter. In fact they have already hit
upon a plan that will give the flat
dwellers a bad turn when they hear
about it. ,
It is known to a few that the own
ers of heated flats in Rock' Island
recently held a meeting- to figure how
they could continue to charge the
same rental during the winter and
yet make the same old 10 per cent
profit on the investment, coal thrown
At that meeting there were many
valuable suggestions made, such ns
painting: the buildings in warm col
ors, encouraging" the use of decora
tive effects suggestive of summer;
and disseminating- literature tending
to show that overheated quarters are
the bane tit the civilized race.
One member was in favor of ap
pointing a delegation to interview
Lieut. Peary, with a view of learning
how he managed to keep comfortable
during his Arctic trip just ended. An
other was in favor of adopting a sys

FARMERS FEAR FpR THE
CORN CROP IN C0TJNTY
Farmers in this county are express
ing great fear that the corn crop
will not prove nearly so good as ii
has promised during the latter part
of the summer. They Hay that in all
but the fields located on sandy
ground or those planted early and
well drained the crop is not ripe and
is not making any perceptible prog
ress in that direction. It has been
practically at a standstill for the
past two weeks, and in many of the
fields one-third or more of the ears
are still in the milk, a condition that,
should a killing frost come soon, as
many feel is very likely, it will spoil,
not making even fair feed when cut
up on the stalk.
