No Advance Money ZXo. Prospective
Players President Sexton and
Delegates to Dubuque.
At the meeting of the directors of
the Rock Island Base Ball association
last evening. Secretary Peetz made his
report on the season showing a healthy
increase for the year. The report show
ed corresponding increases in expendi
tures, and the season closed with the
club $117 to the good. Two important
decisions were made bythe directors.
one that in the future the salaries of
old players who return on the team
will not be increased, and the other
that the club win not allow any ad
vance money in the future. I
Makra Salary Rale.
The club has determined not to
boost the salaries of old players, and
this rule will be adhered to strictly.
The resolution with reference to ad
vance money is a result of last season's
experience, when two players did the
club to the tune of $75. "We will en
deavor to secure players in the future
who do not have to be baited." said
The directors instructed President
Sexton to select three members to ac
company him to Dubuque to represent
the club at the league meeting. Form
er Presidents J. F. Munger and H. E.

WILL RUN THREE CARS ONLY
Experiment Tried Today on Longview
The TrtCity Railway company is
making an experiment today with a
three car schedule on the Longview
line, and if the trainmen can maintain
th. same time with one car less, the
line "will be permanently placed on
this schedule. The cars are expected
to follow each other 15 minutes apart,
so that the only effect that the change
will have will be to necessitate a faster
run. .The employes are of the opinion
that the three car schedule will not be
practical, but the officials of the com
pany feel that the change will be made
permanent. It will be tried for a few
days before a decision Is made.

He promises an interesting exhibition.
"The Holy city." It was with sa
gacious courage that Gordon & . Ben
nett chose for their theme this season's
production the intensely dramatic his
tory of the Apostle John. The epoch of
early Christianity, filled as it is with
allegory spectacle and tragic events,
naturally furnishing material for thea
trical presentation that can be realized
from no other source. The manner in
which the managers of the already cel
ebrated play have taken advantage of
their ; :opportunitles is fast becoming
public praise. "The Holy City" will
be at the Illinois Oct. 9.

A contract was awarded yesterday
io Aaron Anderson for the remodeling
of the Sexton building, adjoining The
Argus office. The building is occupied
by Eddy & Sexton, proprietors of the
Bijou ciar and news stand. Work
will be commenced shortly on the con
tract, and when completed, the build
ing will be a modern three story struc
ture, uniform with the adjoining build
ings. The building will be three sto
ries, and extensive changes will be
made in the lower floor now occupied
by the cigar store and billard hall. The
front is to be rebuilt, and the floor low
ered to the level of the two adjoining
buildings. The entrance will be from
a vestibule on the east, used jointly
with the J. P. Williamson store, which
is now being rebuilt. The upper floors
are to be arranged as modern apart
ments, and a stairway between the
Sexton and the Williamson building
will do service for both. The improve
ment of these properties wi.l represent
an expenditure of over $11,000.
In connection with the changes to be
made in the building. Eddv & Sexton
have decided to inaugurate extensive
improvements in their store, and have
let a contract to the Moline Furniture
company for entire new fixtures for
the cigar anil news departments. The
fixtures are to be of Antwerp oak. and
will include 28' feet of solid show
case. The news business will hereaf
ter be placed under glass, a case hav
ing been provided for this purpose.
The case is 9x3, and stands 42 inches
high. The top glass, and the front
will, he .ft heavy plate glass, extending
to the marble base. This fixture Is
unique, and as far as is known will
be the only one of its kind in use in
the west. A humidor, for the storage
of cigars, with a capacity of 150,000
cigars, is to be installed. Changes will
be made in the billiard and pool room,
and a larger space is to be devoted to
the general store room.

ROYAL Baiting Powder is Made of Cream ol Tartar
and is Free From Alum or Phosphatic Acid
Royal Baking Powder is pure and wholesome beyond
question. There is never any doubt of the healthfulness
nor of the superiority of the food it leavens.
Consumers are sometimes solicited to buy baking
powders other than Royal because they cott less. It is
evident to cost less they must be made of inferior ingredients.

Low-priced baking powders 10c, 20c, 25c, etc,
are made from alum, phosphate or other harsh acid
At most, an alum powder would not lessen the cost of a cake
or batch of biscuit 'more than the fraction of a cent. But can you
afford for any sum to "endanger your health by making your food
with a dangerous baking 'powder?
" I regard the use of alum baking powders as highly injurious to the
health of the community, and believe that their sale should be for
bidden by law." Gzo. F. Barker, M.D., University of Pennsylvania.
