Bring us your old disc records that
you have grown tired of (either Co

change them for the new Improved
Columbia Disc Records. We will al
low you 30 cents for your 10-inch
record and other sizes in proportion.
The new Improved Columbia Records
are of elegant workmanship and' are
a decided, advancement in the art of
record making. They have a full,
Bweet tone, and owing to the manner
in which thej- are made they have a
less scratching tone; the needle seems
to run smoother on the record. We
also wish to introduce to your notice
the new Grand Opera Sound Box,
which is designed to obviate the
scratch of the needle and' at the same
time retain the full volume of tone.
"We will exchange the new Grand

Tales of Town
They were talking of friendship.
"Beautiful sentiment," said the man
with the wide-brimmed hat. "But let
me tell you a story. I had an ac
quaintance that held a prominent po
sition with a buggy factory. We had
known each other for years. I had
shown him favors, and he had done
me good turns. I considered him one
of my dearest friends. I needed a
buggy. I told him so. He was glad
1 mentioned the fact. He wanted to
show me how handv it was to have :i
friend in an otlicial capacity in a fac
tory where they made buggies. He
made an engagement for me to call
on him. I did so. We visited the stock
romn. .where 1 was shown a neat rig,
about the finest in the establishment.
I was told it would be knocked down
to-me for $75. My friend was giving
me a reduction of $25. That is what
ie told me. Of course I was not to
say anything on the outside of the
bargain I had gotten. I told him I
would keep it to myself, but. on sec
ond thought did not believe I wanted
to buy right away. A few dajs after
f met an officer of the company. We
got to discussing buggies and their
prices. Told him I wanted a buggy.
While we were not as close friends as
I and the other man, still he would be
pleased to " give me an inside price.
Told me to visit him at the factory.
He steered me in front of the same
buggy, and would let me have it for
$C0. That was $15 better than the of
fer of my friend. Still I did not close
the deal. The week alter I was rid
ing into the city on a train and met
a traveling representative of the fac
tory. We got to talking business, and I
asked him what he would sell me a
kuggy for. He told me he would give
me a bargain that would make my
hair stand on end. We went direct to
the factorj- from the depot. He led
me to the same buggy. I -could have
it for $40 cash. 1 took him up. Of
course, boys, I believe in friendships,
and there is no man on earth who
values them any higher than 1, but
that little buggy deal turned me Mis

A Rock Island man who took in one
of the performances during the week
at the Illinois theatre by the Ferris
Comedians nearly fell out .f his seat
when the face of his brother loomed
up in view of the government print
ing office at Washington reproduced
by the stereopticon. He said it was
so natural he could hardly keep from
saying hello. He had not seen his
brother for several years, but instant
ly recognized his face when shown in
"Our losses in thefts of articles are
no small item during the holiday sea
son." said one of the managers of a
Rock Island department store. "It is
surprising to know what little things
people will steal a handkerchief that
may cost 15 cents, a trinket of jew
elry the value of which is 25 cents
probably, or other knick-knacks. Oth
ers will put a bolt of silk under their
coats, antl in some instances they get
away with it. It is not the children
who do the pilfering, either; it is the
older people who should know better.
Hardly a day passes during the Christ
mas season that we are not obliged to
call some person into the private of
fice to have him or her searched. In
some cases we are mistaken, but in
the majority of instances we see the
goods taken before we demand a
search. We have several detectives
employed at the store until the rush
is over. Despite that the people know
they are watched, they will take
chances, and many times when the
rewards are so small even when thev
For a time guests at one of the city
hotels coinplained of thefts of small
sums of monev from their overcoats
in the check room. Two boys had
charge of the room and it was a puz
zler to learn positively which was the
Both knew of the complaints and
were warned there would be trouble
unless the stealing ceased. One of
the boys who later developments
proved innocent of any -wrong-doing
insisted on an investigation. The oth
er protested that he was guiltless.
So a trap was set. A gentleman
who takes a meal at the hotel occa
sionally placed three pieces of coin in
a si;ie pocket ' of his overcoat and
checked the garment. When he call
ed for the coat and searched for the
money, it was gone.
The boy on watch was called upon
the carpet. He was asked if he had
taken the monev. He said he had not.
He was willing to be searched, and
voluntarily emptied his pockets. When
shown the marks on the piece of coin
he nearly fainted, but recovered his
composure, and still insisted that he
had not robbed the coat.
He was thereupon told that if lit
did not tell the truth he would be
turned over to the police, his accuser
moving towards the telephone as if
to communicate with police headquar
ters. Then the lad weakened. He
returned the money and got his walk
