THE 'AKGUS, THURSDAY, JUNK 29, 1005.
We do not advocate a "penny wise, pound foolish" policy,
but this is a different proposition. Every purchase made
here means a saving, it may only be a few cents on this
article, or more on that one, but you do make a saving,
which, in time amounts to a sum, which ro economical
housewife would overlook. The saving of a few cents
would be foohsh if the quality was not of the best. Some
times the quality is lowered with the price, but not here.
You'll always find but one quality here and that is the
highest, and you'll find but one set of prices here and those
are the lowest. Just a few of them:

A HITCH OCCURS
Rock Island Southern at Outs
With McKinley People
DISPUTE OVER RIGHT OF WAY
Manager Crafts Denies I. & I. Will
Be Taken Over By the
There is evidence of a hitch between
the Rock Island Southern Railway
company, which has taken over the
partly graded line of the Western Illi
nois Traction company between Mon
mouth and Galesburg, and the McKin
ley syndicate. The latter owns a line
into Galesburg which the Western Il
linois Traction company was to use.
but the Rock Island Southern is appar
ently averse to carrying out the terms
of the old contract and has as yet
made no arrangements for getting en
trance to Galesburg.
Recently there has been considerable
actiity on the part of the McKinley
syndicate, and officers of that com
pany have even intimated that they
have plans of their own for a road
from Galesburg to Rock Island and do
not propose to allow others to get
ahead of them. Developments will be
watched with interest at this end of
Manager P. P. Crafts, of the I. & I.,
declares that the rumors that the
Northwestern road is to take posses
sion of the line between Davenport
and Clinton July 1 and begin the run
ning of freight trains, is premature.
He declares that no changes are con
templated. As yet there is no way in
which steam trains could enter Daven
port, for the tracks of the Tri-City
Railway company are used and the
franchise does not provide for steam.
Connection could be made at Betten
dorf with the D.. R. I. & X. W., how
ever, as the franchise of the latter re
quires the admission of other lines
when suitable terms are made.
Nevertheless, there is the best of
reason for believing that the road will
be used by the Northwestern, if not
by July 1, then at a date not greatly
