Since the improvements of The Bijou
have been completed. Edl? & Sexton
now have one of the most attractive
places of business in Rock Island. Re
modeled throughout, interior and ex

money, it now presents an appearance
vastly different than before the work
men put their hands to it.
About 16,000 was spent upon the
building and $2,500 upon the fixtures
and furnishings that now adorn the
place and make it extraordinarily invit
ing to their trade, patrons of the news
bureau, cigar cases and the pool and
The fixtures are of quarter-sawed
oak with Antwerp finish, the latest
style now in use. A high wainscoting
of this material is on the 'left upon
entering, this running back to the
storage case. To the right are the new
cigar and news cases and a desk with
a large mirror back of it. Every piece
of furniture in the front section of the
building is after this style, even to
the clock on the wall. The walls are
finished with red and green burlap
with gilt trimmings and "Turkish tap
estry. All books and magazines are under
glass, but in as plain a view as before,
when they were on the counters. This
is an experiment and this firm knows
of no other news bureau that so han
dles its goods. This display lends to
the attractiveness of the place as well
as affording better facilities for hand
ling the stock without loss.
Building Improvement a.
Joining with J. P. Williamson, John
P. Sexton, the owner of the building,
remodeled the structure, putting in
new plate glass fronts on the first floor
and brick above, a stairway being
placed between the two storerooms for
use in entering the second and third
floors, which had heretofore been a
waste space. These will row be util
ized for flats and offices. New heating
and lighting plants have been installed.
The floor in the front section of The
Bijou has been lowered to the side
walk grade, but the rear remains on the

In connection with this improvement
it may be said that it follows a growth
of business with which L. G. Eddy has
been connected since 1SS3, and in
which he has had a proprietary inter
est since 1887. A portiou of the time
since then he has had associated with
him J. F. Stroehle and about two years

KILL THE DANDRUFF GERM.
Or Your Hair Will Fall Out Till You
Modern science has discovered that
dandruff is caused by a germ that digs
up the scalp in scales, as it burrows
down to the roots of the hair, where it
destroys the hair's vitality, causing
falling hair, and .ultimately, baldness.
After Prof. Unna, of Hamburg, Ger
many, discovered the dandruff germ,
all efforts to find a remedy failed until
the great laboratory discovery was
made which resulted in Newbro's Her
picide. It aione of all other hair prep
arations kills the dandruff germ. With
out dandruff, hair grows luxuriantly.

effect." Sold by leading druggists

MONEY IN FURS
Muscatine Firm Paying Out From
$2,000 to $3,000 a
Week for Pelts.
ALL GOES TO LOCAL TRAPPERS
More Money in the Business Than
Ever Before Mink Most Val
uable. It will cause; surprise to know that
a Muscatine firm which makes a busi
ness of buying and shipping furs is
paying out from S2.000 to ?3,000 this
season to local trappers. Few have
anj idea that the fur business amounts
to any considerable figure in this vi
cinity. .Nevertheless the receipts from
the sale of pelts hereabouts is prob
ably larger than ever before.
The majority of pelts brought in are
muskrat, skunk and mink. For musk
rats the trapper receives 15 to 10 cents,
skunks bring $1.00 to $1.25. and mink
are quoted at $2.00 to $4.50, according
to size and quality, but an extra large,
fine black skin may sell for as much
as $8.00. When a shipment of furs is
received, the skins are sorted into four
different grades, and paid for according
to grade. While an extra large, dark.
No. 1 skunk pelt might bring $3.00,
one graded No. 4 will only bring 75
cents or a dollar.
Some Other of Value.
Among the other furs of which fewer
are bandied, are the raccoon, which
sells for $1.00 to $1.75; the opossum,
quoted at 25 to 50 cents; the red fox at
$1.00 to $3.00, and the civet cat, which
brings a quarter. Even pussy has a
value in the fur market, her price be
ing from 10 to 20 cents for an ordln
house cat, to 50 cents for a large prime,
