a jfg n was sunning himself in Spen
cer square wiien 1 lie pair approacneu
him and asked him . if he would like
to have a peep into the future. Hp
was agreeable, but instead oi tawing
IT cents for the information, as they
agreed to. he claimed they shook him
down for $t. The women were taken
to police headquarters, but the man
with the bun could not prove that he
had been touched, and the fortune
tellers were discharged. Karlier in the
day they had a difficulty with a clerk
in one ot tne oaiiKs. lie nem out nis

ROCK ISLAND. ILL
0. M. BABCOCK ORIGINATOR
0F"C0SM0NICS" IN THE CITY
O. M. ISabeock, of Philadelphia,
originator of "cosmonies," or the sci
ence of situation, is in the city for
the purpose of furthrjfig local inter
est in his lectures and printed works.
It is not the first visit to the city, he
having been here about ten years ago,
but this time he brings a wider and
more detailed application of his theo
ries than he was able to present for
merly. He will appear before such
organizations in the three cities as
are likely to be interested, sucn as
commercial and scientific clubs, etc.
Chief interest in Mr. ISabcock's theo
ries from a local standpoint lies In the
fact that lie conceives that in the full
ness or time tne triangular tract
bounded by lines connecting the tri-
cities with St. Louis and Chicago will
become the center of empire in North
America. In other words, this will
be the central, most accessible and
most important from a general point
of view of any tract oi equal size on
the continent. Mr. IJabcock is pre
pared to demonstrate this by means
of a series of charts showing the
course of the center of population
westward, and by other means. This
and various other social, commercial
and geographical problems are work
ed out in his published works. The
author had Tiis charts at the Chicago
world's fair and proposes to have an
exhibit at the St. Louis world's, fair
next year. , Mr. Babcock will appear
before the ' Rock Island Club-' at the
monthly membership meeting this ev-
Work of High School Football Squad
Again in Charge of Mr.
Coach Keissel, who has- had charge
of the work of the Rock Island high
school football squad for the past
couple of weeks, is to leave the city,
as' he has decided to enter Wisconsin
state university. The boys will be
"orry to lose him. Mr. Dove, who of
ttcillted as coach before he came, will
asrnin take up the burden of the work.
The first team loaves Friday for
Des Moines to play there with the
high school of that city Saturday.
Sixteen men are entitled to go. They
expect a hard game in view of the
fact that Des Moines was equal to the
best in Iowa, yielding only to (h'nnell,
and that by a narrow margin, in the
race for the state championship.
Last evening on the practice field
Jesse Scott was elected captain cf the
high school second team. The eleven
hopes to iret frames with the Moline
second team on the Saturday when
the first team is out of town, but ar
rangements iiave not yet been com
In general assembly yesterday Prin
cipal Brown spoke of a plan which h
has in mind to impart a general inter
est along literary lines. It is to divide
the school into two sections, each al
ternately taking cliarge of exercises
held in the assembl3' room. Then in
mid-winter there would be a contest
between the two sections, the pro
grams would include debates, recita
tions, orations, papers, readings and
musical numbers. It is thought that
this plan will prove more interesting
than the clubs which were organized
