You Can't Tell
How Far a Frog Can Jump,
By Looking at Him
Is an expression that is not very elegant but you
can't. And it applies well to grocery trading. By
looking at prices quoted you can't tell how much
you are getting for your money how far your
dollar will go, unless you have the assurance that
the quality is the "best. Low prices on cheap, in
ferior groceries do not mean anything to the
housewife, who is able to recognize a bargain, but
prices such as SHIELDS is quoting, on the best
grades of goods the market affords, interest eco
nomical housewives and their pocketbooks great
ly. "Low Price" quotations on "high-quality"
goods is making this busy store busier every day.

The shortage of J. XV. Warr, the
Moline publisher, as secretary of the
Moline lUiilding", Savings & Loan asso
ciation does not grow less as the in
vestigation continues, and it now ap
pears that the amount taken from the
funds of the association and the sums
borrowed from investors together will
aggregate more rather than less than
$jO,000. The money borrowed on his
personal note from investors is in
amounts ranging from $.10 to $3,000
and in many instances belonged to
working people who can ill afford to
lose their savings. It is still claimed
that these people, as well as the stock
holders in the association, will be
paid in full, but there is a question of
the responsibility of the association
in the ease of the amounts borrowed
for the negotiations, while made ap
parently through the institution were
in reality no part of its affairs. As
secretary of the association Mr. "Warr
has two bondsmen, K. K. Wheelock
and Fred It. Young, who are signed

The first discovery of .Mr. YVarr's

$14,000 missing. The fact that it had
been discovered was made known to
Mr. Warr and he promised to make
it all good. Ho did so, but during the
year negotiated ijtO.OOO in additional
loans, which were arranged without
security, or by the issue of "dead"
stock for 'live" stock. All his. per
sonal holdings of slock in the associa
tion were used to secure valid loans.

Existence of High School Athletic
WORK SHOULD BE APPRECIATED
Football Team in Beat of Sbape for
In general assembly Thursday Prin
cipal Brown and Mr. Kent told a few
pointed facts concerning the finan
cial condition of the Athletie associa
tion and its probable results. In for
mer years there has been no difficul
ty with debts, athletics here always
paid for themselves, but at the pres
ent time the association is in debt to
the amount of nearly $100. For this,
several of the teachers stand respon
sible. It is a lamentable, but plainly
visible fact that the school does not
properly ' support the. association.
This is a voluntary organization of
the students, and if they want athlet
ics and take interest enough to sup
port them, all is well and good. The
financial end of the affair will take
care of itself. But if the present lack
of support continues and if the asso
eiation is not out of debt at the end
of the football season, there will be
no basketball games in the winter and
no track work in the spring. The as
sociation will be dissolved. At the
last football game here not one 23
cent ticket was sold, which means
that only high school students were
there and not as many of them as
should have lieen. The football games
will be played out in any case, but it
behooves the students to wake up
and work if they want athletics the
rest of the year.
Kfiady for Fray.
The football game tomorrow prom
ises to be an interesting one. The
local boys are in the best condition
that they have been tins season,
playing hard and fast, and working
together well. Some good subs have

Color It usb Imminent.
Yesterday there were indications of
a terrible class fight between the
sophomore and freshman twos, or
the elasjri which entered last Christ
mas. The freshmen had chosen for 1 heir
class colors black and gold and the
sophomores had almost decided that
they would have the same, and be
cause oj ..the., order of precedence saw
fit to ask the other class to choose
something else. Hut the freshmen
have had half a year of wisdom, so
they bought their ribbons and yester
day morning all came out in their
colors. Possession is nine points in
law. aui in spite of lots of talking
and looking, numerous announce
ments on the blackboards and bulle
tin boards, the freshmen are still
ahead in the contest.
