A GRACEFUL carriage and dignified bearing are of quite as much
jjj if not of more importance to a woman than a pretty face.
If the woman could be made to realize that the proper selection of
her corset had much to do with both, she would be more careful to buy
oniy those corsets made on correct lir,es and in accordance with the
requirements cf hygiene as related to her form.
WARNER'S RUST-PROOF line embraces a variety large enough
to enable every woman to be properly fitted for figure ease, and im
provement, and at a price to suit her purse.
The day of the stiff, angular "stay" has vanished into the past and
the corcet of today conforms easily to the shape of the wearer, instead
of forcing the wearer to conform to the lines of the corset, and at the
same time it gives the effect of fashionable contour and stylish poise
demanded by the mode.

Finest Cook's home on West Third
strt-ct has been broken up. and all
because the wife took in a roomer dur
ing the absence of her husband at
Muscatine, where he was in the em
ploy of a construction company. Cook
came home after an absence dating
from Labor day. Saturday night, and
when he reached the house found that
one of the three rooms had been let
to a roomer. This excited the wrath
of the construction laborer, and when
his wife came home there was some
hot words, during which Mr. Cook took
hold of his wife and handled her rather
roughly, while he hurled the roomer's
trunk and furniture into the hall. In
this assertion of his authority in his
own house Mr. Cook proved a little too
strenuous. Despite the fact that his
wife, as lie says, had torn his shirt into
shreds, she called for the police and
had Mr. Cook arrested em the charge
of assaunt and battery.

ROCK ISLAND, ILLINOIS.
Word has been received from Colo
rado of the death of John Terneck, an
old Davenporter, who removed there
some years ago for the benefit of his
A man representing himself at a far
mer, and representing the part to per
fection, has been working a new con
fidence game in Davenport. He calls
at the homes of well-to-do people and
says he wants to contract for the regu
lar delivery of butter and eggs from his
farm near the city. He puts up a good
talk, and a half hour later shows up
again, saying that he is in trouble.
His wagon has been broken down and
is at a blacksmith shop. He needs a
small sum to pay for the repairs and
will be able to bring back the money
in an hour or two., as soon as he can
make some deliveries. Several people
along Brady and Sixth streets, on com
paring notes, have found that they are
among the victims of the swindler, who
is evidently one of the smoothest that
has ever worked in Davenport. As
it doesn't take long to repair his wag
on, he can collect a good many small
sums in a day.
Ed Hart imbibed too much Sunday
on Grand Isle, and began to smash the
electric light blobes about the picnic
grounds. Special Officer Behm caught
him in the act and placed him under
arrest. The patrol wagon was called
to Fishertown, the man led over the
dam. and brought to this side of the
river, whence he was taken to the
station. He was charged with being
drunk and disorderly. He failed to
put in his appearance at the trial and
in consequence his bond was forfeited.
This amounted to $13.
Rev. John P. Miller, formerly pastor
of the Swedish Methodist church in

or and a republican after his father's
heart, officiated as major domo in
charge of an event at Ren! Cliff which
will go down in the annals of youthful
lives as the bright particular spot in
this campaign. Not only was a flag
flung out across Eleventh avenue bear

Moline high school 5 Alumni 0. This
was the score at the end of thirty min
utes hard play. Although the high
school won they did not have a very
easy time doing it. The first half the
alumni played them to a standstill and
had the ball in their territory nearly
all of the time. The last half the
alumni team was fagged and the high
school boys ran through the line at
will. The touchdown was made in the
last minute of the play.
