THE ARGUS, MONDAY, MARCH 27 1905.
Something for Easter
There is a tradition to the effect
that luck attends the wearing of
something new on Easter Sunday.
Especially for this occasion have
we provided a line of dainty and
useful novelties. Nothing could be
more appropriate as an Easter gift
than a beautifully jeweled cross.
We have them set with turmalines;
different colors, and not expensive.
Besides bead neck chains, neck
laces, brooches, stickpins, new, fin
ished in gold and silver. It's a
pleasure to even show our goods.

DAVENPORT VOCALISTS WILL FURNISH CHARMING ENTERTAIN
MENT AT TRI-CITY PRESS CLUB LECTURE BY RAB
BI FINESHRIBER THURSDAY EVENING.
Society will be largely represented
next Thursday evening, March 30, at
the Burtis opera bouse, when the cur
tain goes tip on the annual entertain
ment Vf the' Tri-City Press club. Al
ready the seat sale is now going on at
Fluke's in Davenport, at the Illinois
box office in Rock Island and at Ileim
beck's in Moline.
As already announced, the musical
numbers will precede Rabbi Fineshri
ber's lecture on "Russia nnd Its Mod
ern Problems." The talent secured
for the concert program embraces the
sextet composed of Wallace E. Moody,
Mrs. A. G. Hansscn, William Mueller,
Mrs. Frank Hetzel, Ed Mueller and
Mrs. Henry Matthey. Their singing of
the famous sextet number from the
opera "Lucia de Lammermoore," as on
the occasion of their recent appear
ance in Davenport, will be a most
pleasureable event for lovers of the
best music. Mrs. James Ferrend will
be the accompanist.
Another fine attraction secured by
the press club is Miss Henriette Weber,
the brilliant concert pianist, whose re
cital a week ago whetted the musical
appetite for a further performance by
this clever artist. Miss Weber has pre
pared a program of exquisite numbers
Hor the evening.
It is expected that the rabbi's lecture
on "Russia and Its Modern Problems,"
a theme growing out of the Russo-Japanese
war, will easily be the season's

oratorical event in the tri-cities. That
the lecturer will measure up to the
high standard of the famous men who
have preceded him under the club's
auspices goes without saying. The
power to charm vast audiences with
the music of that wonderful instru
ment, the human voice, is just as potent
today as in the day of Demosthenes or
Cicero, and this gift is possessed in a
superlative degree by the scholarly
rastor of Temple Emanuel.
In choosing for his subject, "Russia
and Its Modern Problems," Rabbi Fine-
shriber has probably builded better
than he knew. Certain it is that the
lecture Is attracting wide attention in
the women's clubs, along the literary
line, and among those interested in
sociology and political problems. Kvents
of the war in the far cast, as reported
in the dispatches from the front, are of
a nature to make a subjec t of this kind
Intensely interesting. -n
Wnrned of Peril.
Emperor William of Germany has
again warned the nations about the
"yellow peril." and It must be confess
ed that the domination of victorious
Japan over the hordes of China and
her ascendency in the islands of the
Philippines would create a most peril
ous problem, not only for Russia, but
for Europe and the United States.
Seats for the press club evening
should be secured at once, as the num
ber of tickets apportioned to each of
,the three cities is necessarily limited.
Construction of a freight transfer
platform to be installed either at Nat
ick or at New Shops is one of the im
portant changes under consideration
by the Rook Island road. The transfer
platform will be timilar to that known
as the Minnesota transfer and it will
rival the Minnesota one in size. The
plan is to build one as large as if not
larger than any in the country and to
handle all the freight of the big sys
tem at this point. A transfer platform
is used by railroads for unloading mix
ed car shipments and reloading cars
with shipments for a common destina
tion. Freight for points east of Chi
cago would be made up in carlots at
the platform here. This plan enables
the road to effect a great saving on
cars and to expedite freight. Freight
would be made up here for all points
on the system, in fact for every direc
tion and to all parts of the United
