The Rock Island will conduct a spe
cial excursion and invite the business
'and professional men of this citv as
their guests next Thursday to New
Shops. The train will leave here from
the Twentieth street depot, at 2 o'clock
Thursday afternoon, and on its arrival
at the shops the visitors will be re
ceived by employes of the company,
who will guide the party through the
plant. The trip is complimentary for
Rock Island men, and the object of the
company is to give the people of this
city an opportunity to see the great
plant in operation, and to have demon
strated the possibilities of the district
in which the plant is located.
It is expected that a large number
of the business and professional men
of tin- city will take advantage of the
company's invitation, and visit the
shops next Thursday.
Crfw Stay Here.
While no official advices have been
received to that effect it is understood
that the inauguration of the new
lit ardstown-Rock Island trains. Nos. 0
and 1", on the Burlington, will result
in Rock Island being made the layover
station for the train crews. As there
are two crews, including 10 men, this
will mean the addition of several fam
ilies here, and an added benefit of the
inauguration of the new trains, which
should not be overlooked in consider
ing the advantages which will result
from the new time card. Rock Island
is the natural terminal for both crews,
and it is expected that this will be offi
cially made so for these crews. The
new trains will be welcomed, along the
line of the route, und by the commer
cial travelers who make this territory.
Owing to lack of accomodations in the
past traveling men have been obliged
to cut many of the small towns along
the lino between Rock Island and
Beardstown off their visiting list, and
the reinstatement of the trains will be
well appreciated for this reason. Mer
chants and residents in these smaller
towns have been unable to get to Roec
Island conveniently to trade, and as .-
rf suit Rock Island merchants have suf
fered a loss. The possibility of a tri,
to Rock Island and back in one day
will make the train popular and Rock
Island business men will be benehteo
No I'ny far Here.
Th employes of flit Illinois division
of the Rock Island are congratulating
themselves that they are receiving
their pay today under the plan which,
has been in use for several years, ami
are not paid from the pay car. as thf
employes of the Iowa division, and
other western divisions are this month.
The ordr for the pay car system af
fects only those west of the Illinois di
vision. The reason for reverting to
the old method of paying is not knowi-.
but the employes look with disfavor oi.
this action, as they found the check
system veiy satisfactory and it did not
necessitate their taking par' of their
Sunday time to secure their pay. On
the Illinois division the checks are sent
out from headquarters according to the
payrolls of the division, f nd the chocks
are sent by the express messt ngcrs to
the local ofh-' s. The men ra.l at the
office on the arrival of the checks, and
receive their compensation in the form
of voucher checks. This docs not re
quire them to go to any inconvenience
to secure their pay. The pay car on
the Iowa division reaches Davenport
tomorrow, and the men. in order to get
their pay. must spend a part of their
o ll!te In Vnrrf.
officials of the Rock Islainl arc
makiag no haste In the decision of the
plan to'oe used in the laying of the
new switch yards at New Shops. The
new yards will mean an expenditure of
nearly $300,000. and the officials feel
that when the plan is once adopted it
should be the best that can be design
ed for the conditions of this section.
Quite a quantity of the material to
be used in the installation of the new
yards, which will include about 60
switch tracks, has been received, and
is now on the grounds. The yards are
expected to be ready for use by the
first of" December, and as soon as the
plans are accepted work will be com
menced in laving the tracks. The new
yards will do away with the yards at
Rock Island and Natick.

inauguration of a new fast freight on
the Rock Island between St. Iuis and

IMible birds nests are found in the
clefts of rocks or in underground caves
which iire frequently of great extent.
John MacOrcgir in writing of a bird
nesting experience he bad iu Romeo
says; "Off we went with about a dozen
Dyaks, as th little bronze aborigines
nf t i i -s part of Borneo are called, for
guides. The entrance t. tin- cave was
so small and so elevated that I had
ome little Jiflieulty in reaching it.
After we had traveled for some dis
tance ire came neross the Inevitable
stream. TLe ground, which was to a
g;c::t extent composed of the bed of
the stream, was rough and Irregular.
Wo were lighted on o:tr way by torches
carried by our Dyak guides. At last
we came to n passage that seemed a
veritable eye of a needle, so hard it
was to i nter, for it looked so narrow
and confined that I despaired of ever
getting through It. When I fairly got
squeezed into the breach I could force
myself neither upward nor downward
for that was the direction of the pas
sageand there I was, suspended like
Mohammed's coffin or a trussed fowl.
By dint of wriggling, however, I at
last found myself on the top of the
passage, minus a certain amount of
skin and some buttons from my tight
fitting khaki coat.
"Still on we jogged for the best part
of a mile, when, lo and behold, the
caves in which the birds were breeding
and which were to be the limits of our
underground wanderings! A faint glim
mer of light could be seen through a
rift in the rocks far above us. and it
was through this small rift, which was
a sealed passage even to the I yaks
themselves, that the birds passed In
their journeys to and from their nest
ing grounds, our arrival, of course,
disturbed whatever birds were there,
and they disappeared as best they
could. And there, for a time, we watch
ed the Dyaks going through their gym
nastics of robbing the birds nests,
with their rpes and long poles creep
ing along the high ridges and ledges In
the lurid light of the torches like un
'These iKiMilinr nests are built by a
species of swallow. The nests consist
of shallow, cup shaped cavities, trun
cated at one side, where they are at
tadied t' the rocks like brackets to a
wall, and forming something liko a
two-thirds segment of a circle. It is
not always easy to get at them, as
they are sometimes glued to the per
pendicular sides of the solid rocks high
overhead, so that the net tmnters have
to scale these crags with ropes and
jKdes to get at them. Iu substance
they consist of an elastic, semitrans
parent. mucilaginous material, which is
said to bo a secretion, or macerated
food, from the crops of the birds them
selves. "'As robbing these nests for commer
cial purposes forms a part of the Dy
aks means of livelihood, the birds
have frequently to build twice or even
three times during the season before
they are able to batch their offspring,
and It is noted that each successive
crop of nests deteriorates in both con
struction and composition. The nos4
built at the beginning of the season
are bright and transparent and are
consequently known on the market as
'white nests. but when they are rob
bed the next crop is not nearly so
pure in substance."

The Iong View park open air con
cert last evening attracted an audi
ence of at least 5,0 people, and Bleu
er's baud rendered an 'excellent pro
gram. The improvement of the raised
platform was a subject of much favor

who donated to the city the use of his
xui for the construction of The platform.
Mayor McCaskrin made a suggestion
for a popular subscription, in a short
announcement during the evening,
that he thought should meet with the
hearty approval and co-operation of
the citizens. The mayor proposes to
publish subscription blanks in the
daily papers, and to have these handed
to the park board by a week from
Tuesday evening, at the next concert
at Long View. "There arc 25H'O citi
zens of Rock Island, and if each one
gives $1 or less, even if each gives on
ly 10 cents, this park can be improved
to excel anything in this part of the
state," said the mayor.
Park i-'uml Short.
He spoke of the shortage of munici
pal funds for the park improvement.
and urged that the people who are re
ceiving the benefit of the park take up
the matter themselves, and show their
interest in the public good by liberal
subscriptions to a Long View improve
ment fund. Arrangements have been
made to have the concerts each Tues
day and Friday evening, at all three of
the parks of the city. Iong View, Mar-
Let square, and Garnsey square. The
concert Tuesday evening will be at
iarnsey square, and Friday evening
the band will play at Market square,
the next concert at Ixuig View being
a week irom next l uesuay evening.
The concerts will follow in this order
throughout the summer each Tuesday
In closing his address Mayor Mc
askrin urged that the park fund be
commenced, ana the improvements
riade, "not next r ear, but this year.
AVe want to do it now."

A Cbnical Preparation That Positively
Kills the Dandruff Germ.
A most important discovery has been
made after a year's patient laboratory
work aimed in a certain direction it
is Newbro's Herpieide. a preparation
that prevents falling Lair and speed
sly and permanently eradicates dan
druff. These evils are caused by a
germ or parasite that burrows into the
scalp, throwing up dandruff, as it seeks
to sap the life of the hair at the root.
There's no baldness without falling or
thin hair, no thin hair without dan
druff, and no dandruff if the germ is
destroyed. Newbro's Herpicide is the
only hair preparation that will do the
work. "Destroy the cause, you will
remove the effect." Sold by leading
