A WOR.D ABOUT
Columbia Moulded Cylinder Records
were the first moulded records on the
market by about a year.
They always have been Gol d-niould-cd.
A gold mould is the only economi
cal and efficient mould know lULu the
Moulded records are superior to the
old engraved records because they
may be made of harder material.
Hard records lat- longer and have n
better quality of tone.
A gold-moulded record made of soft
material would be no better in quality
than an engraved record in soft ma
terial. The best moulded records are not
only (inld-uioiilJed. They are super
hardened. (old-nuuldcl records are less ex
pensive than engraved records. The
process is simpVr.
Formerly, blank cylinders vere
moulded, then shaved, then engraved
from an original. The originals soon
wore out under the reproducing
st v bis.
Now, a gold-lined mould is made
from the original, and the product of
that mould is a smoothly finished cyl
inder, with the sound record already
tii it. The life of the original is in
creased 10 times, a hundred times, a
a thousand times.
A record is not more expensive be
cause it is gold-moulded.
It is less elenive.
Columbia Moulded Cylinder Records
are new records, made by a new pro
cess. They are not only gold-moulded.
They are super-hardened.
Irrespective of price, they are su
perior in quality to any ther gobl
nioulded record on the market, and
tbev tell for only 2." cents.
We have just received a large ship
ment of these improved records, mak
ing our stock a very complete one.

Milwaukee Road to Expend Three
Million Dollars This
GREATER FART FOR ENGINES
Need ol 3IotlT Power Keenly' Felt
-Daring tbe Lt
At least $2,000,000 will be expended
by the Milwaukee during the next 12
months in the purchase of motive
power. An additional million may be
spent for passenger coaches, sleeping
cars and freight cars, but this has not
been definitely decided upon.
It is said by operating officials of
the Milwaukee that the company must
increase its motive power facilities at
once, if the company is to remain in
a position to handle its increasing bus
iness. At a recent meeting of the
board of directors it was decided to
place orders at once for 123 large lo
comotives, 40 of the engines to be de
livered to the company before Nov.
13. The Baldwin Engine company will
probably build the new locomotives.
The lack of motive facilities was
felt more during the past winter than
at any other time since the shortage
in locomotives became apparent. Many
trains have been stalled for days wait
ing for engines to carry them to their
destinations. This has not been the
case in the passenger department, but
the freight has been the sufferer. The
first object of the company has oecn
to enre for its passenger trains and
as a result there have been few seri
From an authentic source it has
learned that the new locomotives will
be of the simpler type. It is said that
the operating department has decided
to abandon the compound engines, as
they have proven unsatisfactory. The
estimated cost of the new locomo
tives is $15,000 apiece. Forty of the
new engines w ill go into service Nov.
15, and the balance will be delivered
to the company before April 1, 1905.

there is strong local interest in the
report of .lames .P.erry. chief of the

The First Signs of Disease are Weakness,
Emaciation and Lack of Vitality.
The first tign of returning health is increase
of flesh. Mrength and vigor. This weakness,
emaciation and lack of vitality simply means
that certain substances, which go to make up
the blood and nerves, hare become exhausted ;
and to renew flesh, muscle and strength, these
substances must be restored. Dr. Chase's
Blood and Nerve Food is composed of the
ame kind of substances that are lacking in

that flow through the system when in perfect

The survey of the Chicago, Joliet &
Iowa Railway is to be started as soon
as the weather w-yi permit. Such is
the information received from one
who is in close touch with the promo
ters of the new line. Just what the
intentions of the recently incorporat
ed company are, and what interests
are behind the move, have been puz
zling questions for the ioople of this
section of the state to solve.
It is not thought that the men whose
names appear as incorporators are
the real fathers of the project. They
are known to be holders of railroad
bonds, and it is Indieved in well in
formed circles that they represent
some road which is already interested
in this section of the state.
Two solutions of the problem are
meeting with support along the lint
of the proposed survey. One names

the new line, while the other claims

H EES E IS HUMBLED
Bends to Will of County Commi
tee to Save His Friend,
PIATT TO THEOW THE LATTIB
Had the Date of the Senatorial
Hilly Meese stood pat before the
bluff .of he Rock Island county re
publican central committee yesterday
afternoon in fixing the date of the
county convention after that of the
senatorial convention without even
consulting the members of the latter
until he saw to longer hold out would
endanger the chances of his side-kick.
Larry Magill. being returned to the
legislature. So he humbled. It was a
bitter piil for Pill, bnt he took it with
the apparent delight of a babe going
r.gainst Mellin's food.
Magill was himself present at the
committee's meeting in the afternoon,
and when questioned regarding a
change of the senatorial convention
date replied that he was agreeable, if
the members of the committee were
but it was his understanding that an
early convention was the unanimous
desire of all three counties in the dis
trict. While Mercer and Henderson
were in the minority. Mr. Magill stat
ed there was nothing to prevent a
majority of the district getting tor
gether and making a nomination,
catching Rock Island asleep at the
crossing. However, he did not appre
hend that the counties mentioned
would play such sharp politics.
He had another suggestion that
had been made to him and he thought
would be valuable to the county com
mittee. He was the only candidate in
the county for the legislature, and
why not the county committee select
the delegates to the senatorial con
vention instructed for him or allow
him to pick his own delegation?
Chairman Tets Cat Ont of Itagr.
Nay, nay, quoth Chairman Knox.
Larry was slightly off the track.
There was another who had his op
tics turned toward the capital, Rey
nolds .Tohnsen, assistant in the office
of the county clerk, and a resident of
Magill's .home city, Moline. Magill,
like the duped woman in the play,
saw it all.
With an acquiescent smile he bowed
himself out and betook himself to a
dark recess of the hostelry for a
heart to heart with Meese. calling the
latter away from the telephone, over
which he was endeavoring to locate
tbe Mercer and Henderson county
members of the senatorial committee
and apprise them of the request of
the county c mention here. Larry
saw a plot to threw the books into
him. If the senatorial committee fail
ed to postpone the convention, thr
county committee would appoint the
delegation to said convention, and
would make sure that it was not one
that would he favorable to him. Ma
gill is a leader in the Lowden-Sherman
comLin? in Moline. The county com
mittee, by a large majority, favors
Yates. Larry would get it where Al
ice wore the red haws. Johnson, the
understudy of County Clerk H. 15.
Hubbard, the latter of whom is a
Yates supporter, would be pushed in
to the place. Thus did Meese lay down
to save his friend. The senatorial
convention will be held at Aledo March
17, instead of March 10.
Triumph for Moline Club.
The changing of the date of the
senatorial convention is a triumph for
the membership of the Moline Swedish-American
club, to defeat whose
plan to bolster up a Yates-Deneen
sentiment in that city before the
county convention Meese had his com
mittee fix the date of the Aledo gath
ering March 10, the day following the
banquet in Moline, thus hoping to
force the Rock Island county commit
tee to call the county convention in
advance of the Moline celebration. A
delegation from Ihe Moline Swedish
club appeared before the county
committee in the morning to jdead
forthe holding of the first convention
after the date set for the banquet.
There is some Deneen sentiment in
Moline, but little for Yates. Deneen's
strength is chiefly in the membership
of the Swedish club, and it is thought
it is vet possible by a combination of
the Deneeu and Yates forces in Mo
line to accomplish something. Rut
the fellows n the other side simply
chuckle in their sleeves. They say it
is all cut and dried. . utes bases bis
hopes in Rook Island county in the
country districts. His followers, how
ever, are making a desperate fight in
this city and say the least they can
do is to split the delegation. The in
tent of the resolution introduced by
Thomas Campbell yesterday after
noon for cutting the county into five
districts was to serve Yates, but it
will be ignored, this time at least, as
the recommendation for the change
is made to the county convention.
