SUCCESS IS ASSURED
Noon Rest on Third Avenue Aus
QUARTERS COZILY FUENISHED
Lunches Served at Moderate Cost to
Girls Employed About
The Noon Best opened for business
today with a patronag-e which, if con
tinued, will insure the success of the
institution from the start. Lunch
was served to members from 11 till
2 and all were given the use of the
facilities offered free.
The quarters in the Blakesley
building' on Third avenue are as com
fortable and convenient and as well
furnished as those who may wish to
pntrnize it could well wish for.
There are four rooms, top-ether with
kitchen, bath and toilet room and a
large closet for wraps. Two of ths
rooms will be used as dining rooms
for the present and a third may l?e
pressed into service for that purpose
later. Thirty may now be seated at
a table at one time.

The furnishings are appropriate
and the rooms have a very cosy ap
pearance. The reading room is fur
nished with sofa and chairs and it is
hoped a piano may soon be added. At
present there is little reading mat
ter, but that will be added shortly.
The dining tables seat four at each,
and there is a full equipment of table
ware with cupboards and sideboards.
The kitchen has a gas range and oth
er modern appliances. All the fur
nishings, both necessary and orna
mental, have been donated to the
Xoon Best by interested ladies.
One very interesting feature in the
dining room is a blackboard upon
which the bill of fare will be kept)
chalked up. Today the fare for to
morrow was displayed. It furnishes
a fair sample of what the club mem
bers will find at their disposal from
day to day with the prices that will
be charged for the several items.

FERGUSON BREAKS DOWN
AS SENTENCE IS IMPOSED
At noon today Judge Kamsay pro
nounced sentence upon William M.
Ferguson, who had .entered a plea of
guilty to embezzling some $1,000 of the
city's funds while acting in the ca
pacity of collector of special assess
ments. Sheriff Cralle left with him
this afternoon for Joliet.
Mr. Ferguson wnt to the court
house about half an hour before the
time set for the pronouncing of the
sentence. As the jury was excused
for the noon hour and filed out of the
room he came in all alone, not even
his attorney being present. Less than
a dozen people were in the room as
the judge delivered the sentence. The
prisoner, for such he was from that
moment, when told that the indeter
minate sentence was imposed, broke
down and cried. It was a sad specta
cle and one that will iut soon be for
gotten by those who were present.
The sentence cannot be less than a
year and under the rules of the pris
on this may be reduced ,,ne month.
However, the fixing of the length of
time lies with the warden. The state
ment sent to the warden by the judge
and the state's attorney in this case
was all on the side of the prisoner
and contained a brief recital of his
past and the strenuous circumstances
under which he yielded to tempta
tion. Charles Mruhn, who was indicted
and tried for the theft of cigars
while in the employ of Henry Dart's
Sons, will escape the penitentiary.
At 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon the
jury, after having been out six hours.
returned a verdict of guilty, but fix
ing the value of the goods taken at
$14, or below the limit required in
order to give a penitentiary sentence.
Hoy Wagner was this morning
found guilty of burglary and larceny
in the theft from K1 Ward's saloon
in Moline last summer of some whis
ky and cigars and a small amount of
change. He will go to the reform
school at Pontiac, in which he has al
ready served a term. On the former
occasion he was sent up from Peoria
tor burglary. He is !'. years of age.
Lou Mishop was phiccd on trial un

for them, the manufacturers were

arsenal, then the work of putting the
special fittings on the fourteen hun

should be available here within the
next few months. Then, in about a
year from that time, possibly a little
less, the small arms plant at this ar
