The business men of Rock Island
will soon receive an invitation to visit
New Shops as guests of the Rock II
and company, a special train being
provided for this trip. The date has
not jet been announced but it will be
tome afternoon in the week after next.
This trip has been made by the
business men of Moline under the
tame conditions and it now Rock
Island's turn. The object of this invi
tation and special train is to allow the
business men of the cities to became
familiar wifh the situation there and
the needs of the community.
Comparatively few men in business
in the cities arc acquainted with the
improvement that 1:uj at their door,
and the possibilities that have been
overlooked to a certain extent. There
are now alout Sort men employed there
but work coiikl be found for many
more if the men could be secured. The
inconvenience of having to iive in Mo
line. Rock Island or Davenport keeps
many men away who would gladly go
to N-w Shops if a home could be se
cured there. Plans have been outlined
for the placing of the car manufac
turing and car repairing shops there,
which means employment for many
more ir.'.en, the shops as they now are
mploying men only upon the locomo
tives and in the store house.

Thv trip to the shops, which is being
arranged through the courtesy of the
superintendent of motive Mwer. Ar
thur Wh.ja.tley, and Division Superin
tendent 1.,. II. Allen, will tx a pleasant
afternoon's outing for the business
men of the city. The date will be an
nounced later, and further details ar
tunged. The day named will probably
be set aside by the business men of
Uock Island, ami it is expected that a
large reprt situation will take advan
tage of the company's invitation and
vit.it the plant at New Shops.
A Fearful Fate.
It is a ffaiful fate to have to endure
the terrible torture of idles. "I can
truthfully say." writes Harry Col son.
of Masonville, Iowa, "that for blind,
bleeding, itching and protruding piles
Rucklin's Arnica Salve is the best run
made." Also best for cuts, burns am

Vast Possibilities in Rock Island Being
Realized Through Loan As
sociations. Rock Island, June S Editor Argus:
The alertness of The Argus in foster
ing the growth of the city has been es
pecially manifest in your editorials urg
ing the crying necessity for more dwell
The demand for houses is so great
that it can not be met for years. This
demand is due to the small arms plant,
the expansion of factories, and to the
railroad shops at East Moline. The lo
comotive repair shop has a capacity of
2,70ii men, and yet the employment has
been limited to 1.200 men on account
of the scarcity of houses in the tri
cities. The railroad company has pro
vided an appropriation for car repair
shops which would give employment
to over 3,000 additional men. The com
pletion of this plant will be retarded
until houses can be provided.
Truly an unusual opportunity is pre
sented to us to greatly promote the
growth of the city if an organized ef
fort is made to supply houses.
You will doubtless agree with the
statement that home owners are a
more desirable class of citizens than
renters, and will therefore tend your
support to an effort to furnish means
whereby wuge earners may become
home owners by paying monthly in
stallments no more burdensome than
For 25 velars a cooperative effort has
been made to provide such means
through the aid of building associa
tions. The two associations existing
in Rock Island have done more for the
growth of the city than all other agen
cies combined. They have loaned over
$2,70o.ouu to over S.ooo borrowers and
at the same time have furnished a
monthly investment for savings, yield
ing to the? persistent depositor never
less than 7 per cent, and, these institu
tions, by reason of the reserve fund
now required by statute and by reason
of the unquestioned security of all their
loans, due to the fact that payments
have been made on all existing loans,
are today In a stronger position than
ever in the past.
Experience has taught the associa
tions conservatism, manifest in the de
termination to limit loans to local home
owners who desire not to exceed $1,500
and who have a margin of So per cent.
With such a conservative program,
it would seem that funds should ue at
tracted so that the associations C3n
better meet the usual demand. The
demand will greatly exceed the supply
of funds for years to come, so that the
"ate of gain to persistent depositors is
nsured at least to 7 per cent.
In the hope of awakening an inter
est among savings investors who desire
i fair compensation, coupled with se
?urity. and the stimulus of aiding the
city's growth, the Hock Island Mutunl
Building, IxKin &. Savings association
has announced in the advertising col
umns The Argus its i3rd series, to
which it invites subscriptions as a tes
timonial of appreciation of the public
benefit conferred during the past 25
years in furnishing over 1.C.00 homes
to citizens and as a pledge of the co
operation of the investing public in the
effort to meet the demand for addition
al houses and promote the growth of
the city. This 25th anniversary series
should le liberally underwritten.

Applicant Must Pass All Branches at
Onetime According, to This En
actment Local Examinations.
Superintendent S. J. Ferguson has re
ceived a circular from the state super
intendent of public instruction, Alfred
Bayliss. calling attention to the new
enactment with reference to the state
certificates. It is believed that the re
quirements of the new law will work
toward a reduction of the applications
for this class of certificate.
One of the features that distinguishes
this from the former law is with ref
erence to the taking, of the examina
tions. Formerly an applicant might
pass in part of the branches and fail
in others, yet those in which he passed
would be retained to his credit when
he came to take the second examina
tion. Under this enactment he must
take all of the branches at one time,
and if he fails in one he fails in all of
them, practically. Another feature 13
that a registration fee must be paid to
the superintendent in the county where
the holder enters upon his duties. One
of the inducements under the old sys
tem was that the holder of a state cer
tificate did not have to deal with the
county superintendents. Following is
the section quoted by the superintend
ent of public instruction:
It shall be the duty of the superin
tendent of public instruction to grant
state certificates to teachers that may
be qualified to receive them. Such cer
tificates shall be valid in every dis
trict in this state during the good be
havior of the holder thereof. But suh
certificates shall be granted only upon
public examination, under such regula
tions and by such examiners as the su
perintendent of public instruction shall
prescribe and appoint. Provided, how
ever, that each examination shall be
complete in itself; and, provided fur
ther, that the superintendent of public
instruction shall have power to sus
pend the operation of any state certifi
cate for immorality or other unprofes
sional conduct. Before entering upon
his duties as teacher, the holder of
any state certificate shall present the
same to the county superintendent for
registration. A fee of $1 shall be
charged therefor and covered into the

You have heard that some foods furnish fat,
other foods make muscle, and still others are
tissue building and heat forming.
You know that most foods have one or more
of these elements, but do you know that no
food contains them all in such properly balanced
proportions as a good soda cracker ?
The United States Government report shows
that soda crackers contain less water, are
richer in the muscle and fat elements, and
have a much higher per cent of the tissue
building and heat forming properties than any
article of food made from flour.
That is why Uneeda Biscuit should form
an important part of every meal. They repre
sent the superlative of the soda cracker, all
their goodness and nourishment being brought
from the oven to you in a package that is proof
against air, moisture and dust the price being
too small to mention.
