THE 'ARGUS. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 31, 190.'.
I have lK.-tn in business 20 days. I advertised in the bf-firirmins "new

There is no way to celebrate this event In my business, but I am
proud of the 'aureis I have won because I have earned them fairly and
To the many hundreds of my friends and patrons who have favor
ed me. I beg to extend my grateful acknowledgements with the

TO BECOME PERMANENT
After Experiment of Three Weeks,
Tri-City Company to Continue
Longview Fast Service.
Tomorrow the three-car schedule of
the Ixmgview line will become perma
nent, the company's test since Oct. U
having resulted in this decision on the
part of the officials. Under the three
car schedule the cars are allowed 22
minutes to make the run from one end
to the other, in order to keep up the
15-minute trips. People along the line
are generally of the opinion that the
schedule is too fast, and it is likely tc
result in accidents. The new arrange
ment Is inconvenient to passengers
who transfer on the Elm street line at
Thirtieth street, as the Elm street ami
the Ixmgview cars, which formerly
made connections, are now seven min
utes apart at the transfer point.
The experiment was made with a
view to eliminating one car. and finding
this possible by means of a fast run.
the company has made the Ihree-car
schedule permanent from Nov. 1, and
the changes in runs have been assign
BIG BOSTON STORE EXPANDS
Harned . Von Maur Forced to Secure
More Floor Space to Accomodate
The growth of the business of the
Boston store. Davenport, this year, has
been such as to compel Harned & Von
Maur to make arrangements to expan
sion, and this has been effected by the
lease of the Wiese block on Harrison
btrett in the rear of the store, and
it will be only a short time before the
Boston store will spread out of its own
large building into this annex. And
from the rate of the growth of the
business this year it is evident that
this is only an incident in the program
of expansion which the store will have
to adopt. The Wiese building will be
used for jobbing purposes and to help
house the store's reserve stock, which
has heretofore occupied the third floor
of the Boston store. With the removal
effected, the entire third floor will be
added to the retail department of the
store, giving additional floor space o1
SCxl50. which is eight times as much
on that floor a'.one, as the Boston store
had when it started at Second and
Brady streets. The draperies and rug
departments of the store will then be
moved to the third floor, and the pres
ent big cloak department will be dou
bled in size, a space 40x150 feet, mak
ing it possibly the largest cloak depart
ment in the state of Iowa. An electric
lighted underground passageway it
planned to co-meet the two buildings.
