The new city office of the Koek
Island System at 1829 Second avenue
is rapidly beinj rounded into a thing'
of beauty as well as serving- the re
quirements of the road as never be

The finishing touches will be com

public will be invited to formally in
spect the quarters, and mavhap City
Passenger Agent F. 11. Phimmcr and
Commercial Agent E. L. (JofF will have

Two Cent rnntage to Knsrland.
After years of negotiations it. is be
lieved now that two-cent postage be
tween the United State's and Fngland
is about to be arranged. The enor
mous increase in business between
these two countries during the past
few years justifies the reduction in
postage. The enormous increase in
the demand for llostet ter'si Stomach
Hitters is the best evidence of its pop
ularity. Thousands of persons are
using it today for stomach, liver and
kidney disorders to the exclusion of
all others, because they have tried it
and know its value. It will convince
you. too, if you will only give it a
chance to get at your overworked
stomach, inactive liver or weak kid

headache, heartburn, indigestion, dys
pepsia, constipation, biliousness, liver
troubles, and malaria, fever and ague.

EXPRESS EMPLOYES HAY
YET DECIDE TO STRIKE
The expressmen of the country have
not abandoned their efforts to secura
an increase in wages;, and it is possi
ble that a strike may yet be ordered
in ease there is no compliance with
the demands made some time ago.
Xo. radical action will be taken at
once," says R. C. Hill, financial secre
tary of the expressmen. "We shall try
to induce the committee of the com
panies to reconsider their determina
tion not to treat with us. No strike
can be ordered except on vote of the
. "It teems to me that the companies
are standing out for what they call
the principle of the thing. They do
not wish to have anything to do with
us as a union. Our agreement is rea
sonable. We do not ask for recogni
tion nor for an exclusive contract.
The working conditions and terms of
employment are such as would ordi
narily be observedi by any concern.
The advance in wages has been antici
pated by the companies, which pre
pared for it by increasing their
charges Julv 1."
LESS WHEAT WILL BE
PLANTED FOR NEXT YEAR
The general crop summary for the
week just closed according to the
agricultural bulletin for Illinois is as
Rainfall, in ample quantity, occur
red in nearly all sections during Wie
week, a few localities nly, reporting
lack of moisture. The soil is in good
condition, and considerable fall plow
ing has been done. Keorts indicate
a decrease'! acreage will be planted
in wheat. The temperature has been
below the seasonable average, the
mean daily deficiency ranging from
to 5 degrees, according to locality.
Corn has made advancement, but the
growth has not been commensurate
with the backward condition of the
crop. The nights have been too cool
for rapid growth. Conjecture is al
ready advanced that the ripening of
much of the crop depends, upon the
late occurrence of frost. Some fields
are in such a backward stage that
fodder only will be secured. The
pressing need of the crop at the pres
ent time is warm weather.
The threshing of oats is still in pro
gress, but the work has been delayed
by wet weather. The output is very
uneven, ranging from average to
very light yield. The quality is gener
ally good", but considerable complaint
is made of light weight grain.
Favorable reports are received with
regard to the quality ami yield, of
rye. There has been an marked im
provement in pastures. The second
crop of clover is making rapid growth
and a large crop will be harvested for
seed. Late gardens are promising.
Potatoes are not yielding as full as
was exeetcd Complaint is still made
that apples are dropping badly. There
will be, from the presinf iTirt lohk, a
greatly reduced crop of fruit.

Mr. and Mrs. Michael IJroderiek. s:$t

Taken With Cramp.
William Kirrnse, a member of the
bridge gang working near Littleport,
was taken suddenly ill Thursday night
with cramps and a kind of cholera.
His case was so severe that he had
to have the niemlers of the crew
wait upon him and Mr. Clifford was
called and consulted. He told them
he had a medicine in the form of
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar
rhoea Uemedy that he thought would
help him out, and accordingly several
doses were administered with the re
sult, that the fellow was able to be
around next day. The incident speaks
quite highly of Mr. Clifford's medi
