Joliet is to break out in brand new

ordered so that when the players put

Manag-er Nicol. of Kockford. has
been having some correspondence
with Outfielder Arthur II. Kruger.
Vho is understood to have sig-ued

ager Nicol told the young man that
he was the architect of his own for

hardly laying the foundation aright.

on the bark of the trees in winter
and girdles them which always kills
the trees. This rodent, being located

v HOW TO
By F A.
F. A. Head, president of the Rock
Island Club,' has addressed the follow
ing communication to a number of
Rock Island citizens: Dear Sir: In
every prosperous city will be found
wide-awake and enterprising citizens
banded together in some form, by mo
tives of public spirit, to promote its
progress and upbuilding, and very few
important places can be named where
such a force has not at some time in
their history had much to do with
their present condition. " '""
The greatest power for good is un
questionably obtained through, or
ganization. Whatever of benefit for this
or our s'loier cities that has -been ac
complished iu the. pasfvor-.jfc be in.g re

traced to the efforts of organized ef

combination of forces, the greater
have been the results achieved; in
fact it, may be stated as a well es
tablished prinicple i the development
and regulation of human society, auA
in the progress of civilization, that or
ganization is indispensible to growth;
and beyond a certain point there can
be no further advancement without
increased organization. The form of
organization may and does vary in
different localities; in iome cities be

cantile and commercial purposes. A
review of the tri-cities history is a
suflicient answer to the proposition.
Those that have been formed start

existence so limbed in its scope and

cality for which they labor. I need
nly mention as an instance of ths
kind that the beginning of the great
est period of prosperity and develop

was coincident with the advent of our
Citizens Improvement association,
and it is much to be regretted that

A club, while easier to maintain
because of the greater variety of life
and interest within its scope, does not
always live and prosper without con
siderable effort by its membership,
and is not likely to long survive unless
its members, as a whole, give it their
hearty support 'both morally and fi
nancially, by attending its meetings,
by patronizing its entertainments, by
availing themselves of its privileges
and attractions; and by many other
means too numerous to inention here.
These few o-eneral observations lead
up naturally to the .subject in which,
at this time, I particularly wish to in
terest you that is, the Rock Island
Club. Our club was brought into ex
istence some four years ago through
the efforts of a few enterprising and
earnest citizens, and given at that
time by a large number of persons,
most of whom did ndt associate them
selves with its promoters, and as
yet have not become members a year
in which to complete its life and
usefulness. In the beginning, its
membership consisted of less than
seventy-five persons, and but little
hope ihen existed that it could be i n
creased to more than one hundred.
In fact, it was thought if such n num
ber could be secured, permanent suc
cess would be assured; but the club
now lias nearly two hundred and fifty
paying members. For the first two
years it occupied a building which for
a long time had been allowed to go to
waste and decay, and had become
very unattractive both inside and out.
Now, however, through the zeal, gen
erosity and good management of its
earnest supporters, the building re
ferred to has been purchased, repair
ed, improved and beautified to meet
the requirements of the club, at a
cost of approximately $2(.00o all of
which is paid, and thus a permanent
home of ideal character and location
has been acquired. The club has be
sides about $3,500 invested in furnish
ings and Outfit,
In a" social way the Rock Island
Club has been the source of much
private pleasure and satisfaction to
its members, many of whom can testi
fy to the good times had within Its
doors. In its broader scope as an or
ganization, it.fills a long existing void
in the social conditions of this com
munity, by establishing more inti
mate acquaintance and congenial re
lations among -our citizens in their
personal and business affairs. It has
liberally entertained many conven
tions, of various kinds that have been
held in our city, and opened its doors
to the public on such occasions. Its
hospitality has been extended to and
accepted by many noted persons, on
which occasions opportunity has been
afforded the public, through the club
reception, to meet and greet these dis
tinguished people. If one desires to
privately entertain a small party of
friends, a better place cannot be
found in the three cities, or can more
or better viands be served for the
prices charged." Billiards, pool, bowl
ing, ping-pong, chess, checkers and
cards always afford opportunity for
entertaining, and the best facilities
are offered for enjoying these games,
while abundance of good reading mat
ter, including the daily papers, stan
dard magazines and weeklies, is at
hand in. the library.
As a business association, the Rock
Island Club has at all times been a
persistent and persevering factor -in
promoting the best interests of this
city ar,d community. It has very fre
quently taken the initiative and ex
rcgg. Then, after a prayer In-Mrs.
IMakemove. and another hymn, greet
ings -wiir be extended by Rev. V. S.
Marquis, of this city, a n.l-Rev. Gra
ham Lee, of Korea. Next will be a
reading by the talented wife of the
Presbyterian minister at Milan, Mrs.
Marion Humphreys, whose subject
will be "How the Cnureh was Built at
Kehoe's Bar." Another hymn will be
followed .by a sketch upon "Ecclesias
tical Music and the Relation of Music
to Foreign Missions" by Mrs. I S.
McCabe. This will be illustrated by
violin, voice and piano. A prayer by
Mrs. Miles with song and benediction
win close the program, and a social
hour will follow.
To Observe W tubing-ton's Birthday.
The three parochial schools of the
tierman Lutheran church are to unite
in exercises in observance of Wash
ington's birthday, Friday evening at
7:30 at thef. M.C. A. auditorium. The
program, in the arrangement of
which there has been considerable
preparation, will consist of songs,
recitations, etc., a feature to be bible
scenes illustrated by the stereopticon.
The exercises will be in German aid
Knglish. No admission charge will be
made, and the" friends of the Schools
arc invited to' attend.

While the club, owing to a wise and
