The nly indispensable thing aloiit
shoes is that the-wearer shall be at
peace with them. This means that
she shall be satisfied.
It seems a simple thing to ask, but
it is difficult to obtain. For no wo
man can be at peace with her shoes
unless they are comfortable. And no
shoes can be comfortable unless they
Hut, as the ordinary ready-made
shoe is built today, it can't fit as it
should. It needs a totally . different
construction to make it fit around the
waist of the foot. Only one shoe is
built with this arch-fitting construc
tion. This is the "EMPRESS."

' The first thing about the building
to catch the public eye is the striking
and artistic front finished in blue
enameled brick. This perpetuates to
the clothing emporium one of its most
familiar characteristics, that of the
blue front." The first view of the
building is bound to hold the atten
tion, and a further inspection withia
and without is not disappointing.
The buikling is three stories in
height and covers a lot 40 by Jo0 feet

The best time to take it Is when the cold first comes on, when the trouble
is in the throat.
Throat tickling, throat colds, throat coughs are all easily controlled with
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
Doctors first prescribed this nearly 60 years ago. They use it more today
than ever. They know its ingredients. They understand how it heals con
gested membranes and overcomes inflammation. Ask your own doctor
about using this medicine for colds, coughs, and all lung troubles.

Then there is a second hall designed
for Or dining room or for the meeting
of smaller bodies, 25 by 40 feet. There
is also a kitchen and locker and toilet
rooms, all handsomely and durably
finished. Public appreciation of this
feature is evinced by the fuet that
there has been a general rush on the
part of secret societies to secure the
use of thei quarters and the result is
that there is a meeting of some sort
there early every evening.
Windows Are a Feature.
The display windows of the store
are the only of their kind in the three
cities. They are deep and wide and
are fronted with the very best quality
of plate glass. The most unusual
feature is the bent glasses at the cor
ners. Several of -these were broken in
putting them in place and the loss
was heavy. The front of the store is"
lighted through the prismatic glass
over the plate glass that tones down
t!;V .iws nf the sun and gives a very
:-e. . - x - - ?
pleading effect. A concrete sidewalk
was laid in front of the Vt ore last fall
and as soon as the danger of frost is
past- the entrance will be tiled.- 3.
Altogether the London Clothing
company has a right to feel proud of
its new home, and the public will
doubtless show fitting appreciation of
the improvement that has been made
by a patronage even more liberal than
the firm has enjoy ed in the past.
M. C. Kice. the member of the lirm
under whose supervision the business
is conducted, has been in the east
several weeks on a buying tour. Upon
his return arrangements will be made
for a public opening, when everyone

Clever Rase Used in Inspecting Site
of Proposed Rock Island
Last September a somewhat rusty
looking individual was seen about
Warner's Crossing, east of Moline,
attired in a hunting jacket, gum
boots, ete. He meandered about the
fields, through the meadows and up
and down the ravines time and again.
With a gun slung over his shoulder
he was almost a daily , visitor, and
had little to say to anyone. To the
signs along the farms "No Hunting,"
lie paid no attention, and when inter
cepted by some irrate farmer who had
run across a two-mile meadow to head
him off, he would blandly say:
"Wa-all, I guess I can hunt in your
pasture, if I don't shoot." This usu
ally settled the question, and the far
mer would leave him. muttering some
thing about the gol darned hunters,
as he retreated to the barn-yard to
continue his chores.
Last Tuesday the same hunter was
up at Skinner's store, but he no
longer wore the garb of the hunter,
nor did he carry a shot-gun. lie

the man who engineered the deal for
the purchase of the land upon which
it is expected the Itock Island shops
will be built.
Col. Brown admitted the ruse he
resorted to in going over the land
for the purpose of inspection. "If I
had come on here," he said, "all -dress
ed up and gone about I would have
attracted attention, and there would
have been considerable prying into
my mission. As it was. I was simply
regarded as a hunter, though I must
admit that many times 1 had narrow
escapes of serious trouble with farm
ers who wanteil to eject me from
thi i r land, believing that I was after
some other kind of game."
. Want Train Kentored.
The sentiment in favor of the con
tinuance of the train known as the
Calesburg passenger that was taken
off by the Hurlington a week ago on 1
account of the alleged shortage of j
coal has erystalized into a petition !
that has obtained a wide circulation
imong Kock Island business men and
shippers asking that the road's man
agement arrange to have the train
put back a sbeforc at the earliest pos
This petition has been presented to
General Passenger Agent 1 S. ICnstis
and the company's officials now have
it under consideration. From the
company's standpoint the trouble ap
pears to be that the train, while very
well patronized on this end by peo-1
pie coming to and returning from the
tri-cities, has been doing very little
toward the other end. Therefore un
less the patrons of the road act in
unison in the matter it may be that
the service will never be revived 110

loss of this train means more to liock

or Davenport, for experience' has

makes rich, red blood, rosy- cheek

medicines cannot give. Its influence
permeates every nerve, rejuvenates
the body, awakens and vitalizes the
nerves, stimulates the heart, puts new
strenglh, new life, new ambition into
every f unction and feeling that makes
life worth' battling for. That is vital

transference of the vital current from
one whom nature has blessed with an
excessive supply to one who is defi

The phenomenal cures accomplished
by vital magnetism, ..administered
through the Hoy Phenomenon, who
has n over-abundance of that vital
fluid, continues to attract crowds to

greatest interest all over the city.

other symptoms which only a nerv

so bad and had such pains and was so
