TALK ON TRAVEL
Dr. H. W. Reed Tells of Experi
ences While on Trip
HAS A FUND OF ANECDOTES
Railway Trains in Europe Vastly Dif
ferent From Those of America
An instructive as well as highly en
tertaining talk was given at the First
Baptist church last evening by Rev. H.
W. Reed, In which he related some of
his experiences during his travels
abroad, with a detailed account of var
ious kinds of conveyances used by in
habitants in England. Ireland and
Scotland. He said that all passenger
cars have the entrances on the sides,
with no end platforms, and each car
is divided into compartments, the walls
of which usually reach to the ceiling.
but in some cases go only pari way
When passengers enter the compart
ments none of which holds more than
Ave persons it has been stated
he guard locks the door, but
but this is a misrepresentation, as lie
only closes the door to prevent it from
flying open when the train is in mo
tion, using a leather strap as a latch.
The passenger within can easily open
he door by letting down the window
above the entrance and then reaching
out his hand and unlatching.
Compartments of cars are labeled
first, second and third class, and it is
not considered any humiliation in that
land to ride third class. Waiting rooms
and dining rooms at the stations are
also labeled the same as the compart
ments, and passengers must enter the
rooms corresponding with their tickets
f passage. There is very little differ-
nce in the comfort to be found when
raveling in the different classes, but
first class compartments, as a rule.
give tme more privacy, as fewer pas
sengers ride first class.
Every traveler must hunt up his own
ompartment. There are no conduc-
ors to guide you. There is no checK
system, and a passenger must attend to
all the details of having the trunk con
veyed toand from the train, and isex peel
ed to tender tips to all who assist In the
handling of the baggage which is there
known as lugsage. This absence of a
check system presents 4 great chance
for dishonesty, because u traveler.

Drinking; XVutrr Senrcf.
One noticeable feature in' England
Is the scarcity of good drinking water.
When you get it, it is two or three

OPENM(G OF OUR NEW STORE
IN INSTITUTING this Grand Fall Opening for the nobby dressers of Rock Is
land, THE HUB has used every effort and spared no expense to bring to
Rock Island the most complete stock of Fall and Winter Clothing ever dis
played in this city.

friends in Rock Island, The truth of this
assertion is evidenced by the fact that
after a business caieer of only 6 months,
The Hub has doubled its store space, dou
bled its stock', and the management feels
assured will double its patrons. We defy
any one to distinguish Hub-made clothing
from the high priced tailor made.
Remember, this is the first time ice
have ever shown Fall and Winter goods in
Rock Island, and that every article is
brand new and up-to-date.

For the opening we have marked a few of our most handsome Suits at
astonishingly low prices.
FOR A SOUVENIR., we will on Saturday (tomorrow) give a Linen Handkerchief with every purchase
of a dollar and over; with every pair of Men's Trousers, a pair of Suspenders; with every Sviit, Svis
penders and one of those swell Neckties.

guards collect tickets from the passen
ers as they alight, aud at the tor
minals the entire train is held until
all tickets are collected, the guards al
ways displaying great politeness, even
though kept waiting through mislay
ing of tickets.
All freight trains are known as
"goods" trains, and none of these
"goods" cars are longer than 12 feet or
have a capacity of over eight tons. The
great majority are open, and canvas is
used as a covering. All of these cars
run on four wheels, similar .to wagon
wheels, one under each corner of tho
In speaking of the London omnibus.
Dr. Reed says: "The London omnibus
is a never to be forgotten creation, two
stories high, with the circular stair
case at the rear the first floor holding
12 passengers and the second 2, the
upper floor much preferred because of
the view and better ventilation, al
though one must be content to sit and
breathe In the fumes of tobacco of all
varieties and from pipes of all ages.
No passengers are admitted unless
there is a seat." Here Dr. Reed hu
morously referred to the various adver
tisements, which completely cover the
omnibus, most of these being of Amer
ican firms who realize that "abroad
are people with ills and money and
for people of both these qualifications
patent medicine advertisers are look
ing." Every passenger gets a receipt
for fare paid in the omnibus. In re
ferring to the calling out of streets
and places. Dr. Reed says: "One must
know the answer before he asks the
question, as it is impossible to under
stand the guard, who speaks a lan
guage of his own. All omnibuses drive
to the left when passing others, and go
at a brisk trot, making it exceedingly
dangerous for a traveler not accustom
ed to this mode to cross the street."
In North London there Is only one
car line, and that has hor6e cars, while
in South London were electric cars, "but
none of them." said Dr. Reed, "equal
to those in the tri -cities."
In speaking of the Irish Jaunting
car. prevalent in Ireland. Dr. Reed
said: "I paid 48 cents for a ride on
a jaunting car. but after a half hour's
ride I had all the jaunting car I want
ed, the lack of comfort overruling the
thought of the novelty." The little
gray donkeys are much used in Ire
land and a wonderful help to the peas
ants. Dr. Reed concluded his talk with
a humorous recital of the farewell of a
French couple at a depot in Paris, quite
different from that practiced here.
Another talk will be given at the
church Thursday, Oct. 19, on the Brit
ish Museum, Tower of London, and
