RUMMAGE SALE IS ON
Rink Thrown Open to the Bar
gain Hunters at 2 O'clock
GEEATEUSH TOE CHOICE OFTEEINGS
Collection the Largest and Most Var
ied That Has Been Of
At 2 o'clock this afternoon the
doors of the rink were thrown open
and a vast vrowil of barg-ain seekers
surged in to snap up the most tempt
ing offers at the rummage sale of the
Union Mission. From that time on
the t-treets were lined with neonle
triumphantly bearing away bundles,
big anil little.
All the rummage sales that have
been held by the I'niiin Mission have
been big affairs, but the one that
opened today eclipses them all. It
really seems that the collection and
ale of rummage creates more rum
mage anil each time the collectors
find larger amounts and greater vari
For a number of days past three
wagons have been busily hauling ar
ticles of every description to the rink
from all parts of the city anil even
from Moline and l)aveiiort. During
most of that time a dozen or more
devoted ladies, and in some cases
their husbands, have worked earlv
and late sorting out, pricing and tag'
ging. The task is one that might
have appalled those less enthusiastic
m the cause. There is still much to
le collected, one of the wagons hav
ing yet over 100 places at which to
all for rummage, and this work will
ue continue:! 1 li run tr limit the sale so
that new bargains will be placed on
the counters continually.
Many New Articles OflTrrtrd-
Much of the rummage this season is
not rummage at all, but new goods
donated by merchants of this city
ami l)avenixrt. There is a great deal
f new crockery and some new fur
niture, while several department
tort's have contributed liberally with
miscellaneous articles. 1 he grocery
and produce department is a new de
parture in rummage sales in this city
nd the demand for the articles sold
far exceeds the supply. Among thr
most attractive imrirams oticreil are
collection of rugs manufactured at
the I'nion Mission rug works before
the establishment was leased out.
The rugs that had leen manufactured
at that time were kept and now they
have bten marked down and placed
Of course the collection of rum
mage is not so large nor the variety
$p complete that those in charge have
nothing more to wish for. They are
still anxious for country produce, for
which there is a marked demand, and
Mrs. I'lakemore wants fakes and oth
er eatables for the refreshment de-
partment. Although the ladies have
come nobly to the aid of the mission
in the work of preparing for and con
ducting the sale, there is yet room
for the employment of more help in
nearly all departments. Several
young ladies would be esecially use
ful in the refreshment department.

performances, and it is one of the
proud boasts that a curtain has never

been made. During this time the or

breezes of the lake in an open boat,

joking in plenty among the party as
the evening wore on until one frisky
young gentleman in the party- liegsin
