After all, what could be prettier? They are frozen music. The cloud
fancies that spread like delicate gauze over field and grove and moon
lit meadows are crystalled in these mysterious stones that mother na
ure produces from under the earth. Poems of posies in mellow, deli
cate tints, like the hues of crushed flower petals. Every rich, roman
tic tint is reflected. Are they fading glories? No.
If you koew that they would some day be beyond your reach
would you be content to pass them by at the little prices which we ask
We believe that diamonds w'tl be worth double in two years what
they are now. .Such being the case, could you Jose your investment?
Is it fancy or economy? We cart net. Demand is an imperious
master whom we implicitly obey. In this instance we have provided
with prodigality the little store with the little prices.

ALSO WANTED IN DAVENPORT
Served Jail Sentence in That City for
Stealing Chickens Other Offend
ers in Court.
James Ray. ihe -2-ear-old colored
boy who was arrested on the charge of
stealing bicycles, was bound over to
the grand jury on a charge of larceny,
his bond being fixed at $300. Besides
the two wheels he had stolen here
there are two thefts that are laid to
iiim in Davenport bicyles having been
taken from the high school building.
They were found at a, iunk sh,op where
they had been sold by the boy for 25
cents each. The dealer had kept a
record of the purchase and the police
were given the right-tip. The Daven
port officers went after him. but he
made his escape to this side of the
river. The Rock Island department
was notified and took the lad into cuf--:ody.
Recently he served a term in the
county jail in Davenport for stealing
chickens. He admitted having taken
20 from the plant of Armour & Co. in
A man giving his name as C. E.
Bragg and a woman registering as his
wife were arrested yesterday afternoon
and were fined for disorderly conduct.
The pair had been hitting the bowl to
an excessive degree and were engaged
in a loving exhibition on Fifteenth
street between First and Second av
enues. People enroute on the avenue
stopped to see the performance and in
a short time a large enough crowd had
gathered to attract the police, and they
were forced to let go.
Ed Sackett and John White were ar
rested last night and fined this morn
ing on aharge of disturbing the peace.
The two were engaged in a fight.
McKINNEY MAY FIND
OUT HE IS MISTAKEN
Returns from Rock Island County Pro
fessing to Believe He Has a
The republican county central com
mittee met here yesterday and discus
sed political matters with the congres
sional candidate, James McKinney.
Mr. McKinney has just returned from
Rock Island county, and reports that
the vote for him will be the full party
strength, and that all the indications
are that. McCaskrin has lost much
ground since his campaign a year ago.
No one here is in sympathy with any
movement or opinion of the attorney
general that will rule MtCaskrin's
name off the official ballot because of
alleged deficiencies according to the
rules of the new primary law. No pri
maries were held anywhere according
to that law, which the best judges of
the legislature say was not to be in
force until Jan. 1. 19oC. Aledo Times
Record. Mr. McKinney is likely to find that
he is whistling in a graveyard. The
voters of Rock Island county are fami
liar with his record as member of the
railway and warehouse commission
and knowing as they do, that he, if
elected, can hardly fail to be a better
representative of the railway interests
than of the people's in general they are
not likely to flock to his standard.

If you have neighbors who are fond
of raising chickens and other kinds of
fruit, and who prefer to raise yours in
stead of their own, a good padlock on
your garden gate or chicken coop door
will often remind them that you object.
We have over 50 kinds of padlocks,
some costing as much as a dollar, but
we have lots of good brass and iron
locks for 25 cents; others for less. Ev

Fourteenth-and-a-half street to L. S.

the lots in these additions, it is reason

NO INTENTION WHATEVER
OF "BUTTING IN" HERE
A Little More of the Moline Dispatch
Toward the Upper River
The Moline Dispatch accuses Rock
Island of "butting in" on the Upper
Mississippi River convention at La
Crosse in reply to the story published
in The Argus of the unneighboi iy at
titude of the Moline delegation toward
the plan of this city to secure next
year's convention. The Dispatch holds
that Moline had its plans laid for the
convention two years ahead before
Rock Island entered its claim, and had
the reason for its position. That is in
deed a lame excuse because Moline
had set its heart on the convention two
years away. Rock Island was "butting
in" and acting unneighborly in asking
it next year. The fact that Rock Is-
iand yielded when it was found that
Moline was inclined to do its best to
keep it away from this locality until
Moline got good and ready to tntertain
it, showed which city wa the more
neighborly in its disposition. But then
it is a small thing to quarrel over.
There is no objection here to Moline
saving the convention whenever it
reaches the state of ample prepared
ness, regardless of the exceedingly un
becoming demeanor of the leaders of
the Moline delegation at La Crosse.
Meanwhile if Rock Island should
take it into its head to go after a con
vention, now that its sister city is in
that line of business, it will try to as
certain Moline's future aspirations be
fore moving. If there is anything this
town does not want to be accused of it
is "butting in."
Mrs. Eugene Doyle.
Mrs. Eugene Doyle died last even
ing at 8:3( at the home, lolfl Fifth av
enue, after a year's illness which re
cently developed into quick consump
tion. Mrs. Doyle, whose maiden name
was Miss Anna Davey, was born at
Galesburg, and was 115 years of age.
She was married in Moline to Mr.
Doyle about ti years ago, having resided
in Moline some years previous to her
marriage. Besides her bereaved hus
band, she leaves three small children,
John, Harold, and Irene. Her father,
Thomas Davey, and a brother, William
Davey, reside in Moline.
Mrs. Doyle was a member of St.
Joseph's church of this city. The fun
eral will be held Monday morning at J
o'clock from St. Joseph's church, with
interment at Calvary cemetery.
Has Great Curative Properties.
Physicians and medical authorities
are giving more and more attention to
the unusual curative properties of
Pluto Water, and it Is now fairly well
established that this water, which
comes from the French Lick Springs,
Indiana, is probably the most highly
medicinal of any natural mineral water
in the United States. Some of the
most remarkable cures on record are
attested to by those who have taken
the waters, not only at the Springs
but on doctors' prescriptions at home.
This constitutes one of the marked dif
ferences between Pluto Water and the
common varieties. Pluto Water loses
nothing in the bottling others do. Ah
a cure for digestive derangement, stom
ach troubles, kidney diseases, chronic
constipation, etc., Pluto Water Is now
regarded as constituting a class of
itself. Proof of this Is the fact that
nearly all druggists now carry it. not
only in the 25-cent and 35-cent bottles,
but in 15-cent bottles as well.
