PLANS FOR GREAT FUTURE
St. Joseph's Church in Hands of Organ

Rov. James J. Quinn, who preaches
his flrft fcernmn as pastor f St. Jo

such a niHn as Katlier Quinn. and that
is the rt a son he was selected from the
many available men to take this charge
and assume the duties of a dean.
OriianUrr mil Ilulldrr.
Father Quinn comes not unknown to
the parishioners of the church, as his
l;ilors in the state of Illinois have been
hailed for and wide among church men.
As an ornaniz'T he has made a repu
tation for himself in various cities. Mi
work along educational lines has made
him foremost among the meu of his
calling. As a huildcr. he has left be
hind him monuments that speak with
out epitaphs. As an orator, hit peers
In conversation his every word de
notes a til uiness that is seldom seeu
among men. In business he exhibits
the finalities necessary to make the suc
cesses he has left behind him in th
various fields of labor that have been
his. In devotion to the interests of
his perish he shows a feeling that In
jures the condition of all else being
subservient to It.
1'ulura of St. Jottrph'a.
With the future of St. Joseph's par
ish in the hands of such a priest, there
is every indication that a feeling of op
timism will soon spread over all of the
members: that what is now mediocre
will ultimately be placed in the front
lank and priest and parish will view
with satisfaction the result. All of
these things are indicated in the man
ner in which Father Quinn has taken
hold of his work here, and In what is
known of his accomplishments of the
For some time the church will be
utilized as it Is. with the needed re
pairs. But the plans of the pastor are
for something far greater and far bet
ter. For the present he will content
himself with making the acquaintance
of his parish. Later, it is his Intention
to combine their purposes with his and
his with theirs in the great possibili
ties that confront St. Joseph's church.
Hold Liberal View.
Father Quinn is a man who makes
himself felt outside of his church. He
Is apparently liberal In his views of
affairs, equally liberal in his associa
tions with men of other churches and
actively interested In all that is bene
ficial to the community in which his

honey and other valuable remedies, it
is rendered laxative, so that its use in
sures a prompt and efficient evacua
tion of the bowels. It relaxes . the
nerxous system, and cures all coughs,
colds, croup, whooping cough, etc. A

for children. Mothers praise it It is
best for all. Sold by all druggists.

MAIL FROM THE
About a Thousand Letters Brought to
Rock Island Postofflce to Be Sent
on or Returned.
As a result of the wreck of train No.
11 and 12 on the Rock Island, the post
offlce clerks at the Rock Island post
office were given the task of resorting
about 1.000 letters. The local postofflce lb
the railway postofflce division point,
and the letters damaged in the wreck
by water, steam, pieces of broken
glass and splinters of wood were sent
to Rock Island for redistribution, or if
unable to decipher the address, send
the letter back to the sender.
It was a big task, as many of the ad
dresses were made illegible by the wa
ter and steam. Where a return card
was printed In the corner the letter
was returned unopened to the sender,
with an explanation. Many of the dam
aged letters had to be opened before
they could be taken care of, and where
the sender's name appeared plain
ly, the letters were returned. Where
the signature was incomplete and the
address damaged, the letters will go
through the channels of the dead letter
The majority of the letters were for
warded to their destination with the
stamp explaining the delay.
The New Jewelry Store
CONCERNING FRAUD AND PRICES.
The jewelry business furnishes a broad field for fraud, and unless
you are sure of your merchant, it is the part of prudence to come here.
Yes, It is sad to know that sand-in-t he-sugar methods still . prevail in
certain quarters. The public is to be pitied.
We make the broad assertion that you can buy any article of jew
elry in this store for a lower price than articles of equal merit (if the
same can be found) in other stores. We know that, becunse the peo
ple are shopping around, and we are getting new accounts from those
who see where their money goes the farthest.
The people have been held up long enough, and it Is time the char
latan dealers were put into the dim persjiective. The principles of thin
store hardly require restatement; you know them in all their breadth
and depth and height. We are always building business. Alert, in
tense; we are making it more and more impossible for you to pass or
