Rock Island and Scott County
Masons Plan for Fourth
REELECT PRESIDENT WILSON
Unusual Honor Conferred on Rock Is
land Officer Doric Lodge In
Charge of Arrangements.
The Rock Island-Scott County Ma
sonic Picnic association has selected
Moline as the next meeting place of
the association, and the fourth annual
picnic will be held there some time in
August. The first picnic of the associa
tion was held in Moline, at Prospect
park, and It was at that time that the
association was permanently organized.
The idea of the association, however,
originated in this city, and Rock Is
land Masons were responsible for the
arrangements for the first gathering, in
1902. This year's picnic will be held
either at Prospect park or Campbell's
island, the date to be selected later.
Doric lodge of Moline will have gen
eral supervision of the arrangements.
Elect the Officer.
The following officers have been se
lected by the association:
President C. C. Wilson, Rock Is
Vice- President J. Fife, Port Byron.
Secretary Henry Rohwer, Moline.
Treasurer V. Iligley, Davenport.
Ilouor In I'nununL
In the reelection of C. C. Wilson a
high honor was conferred on him by
Moline members, for it has been the
custom of the association to permit
the city which is to entertain the as
sociation to name the president from
its own membership. Mr. Wilson was
chosen president last year, wiien the
association met at the Watch Tower,
and the Moline members insisted that
he fce reelected.

B.C. M. Club Breaks Record on

Special Plans Being Made for Future
H. B. Hayden Addresses the
The boys' meeting at the Y. M. C. A.
yesterday was the largest ever held,
the attendance being over SO. The B.
G. M. club, composed of the boys of the
junior department, is in charge of the
meetings, and the members are work
ing enthusiastically to increase the at
tendance. The meeting a week ago
was larger than at any previous meet
ing, but the attendance yesH?rday show
ed an increase over last Sunday. Next
Sunday afternoon the boys meeting is
to be held at the auditorium of the
association, and efforts will be made
to secure an attendance over 100. Spe
cial numbers for the meeting are being
planned, and the intention is to feature
the boys' meetings particularly in tho

II. n. Haydv! AalilreHMPM Men.
The address at the mens meeting
was given by II. B. Hayden, who spoke
on the subject, "Because Ye Are
Strong." He called attention to the
fact that Paul in his epistle assumes
that young men are strong, and point
ed out that the world's work is being
done largely by the young man. He
quoted the writer who says: "If a man
is not handsome at 20, strong at 30,
and financially successful at 40, he
will never be handsome, strong, or fin
ancially successful." "Young men are
wanted for their physical strength,
mental strength, and more particularly
for their spiritual strength, and young
men of right ideas and efforts were
never so needed as now," said Mr. Hay
den. He spoke of the continual strug
gle between crime and the law, which
is so hard waged that in speaking of
the Hoch case a newspaper said "Law
Wins Fight," and he commented on
the graft exposures as evidences of the
need of strong young men. Speaking
of the cures for conditions indicated
by these exposures and the increase in
crime, Mr. Hayden urged publicity as
one important cure, but held that the
correct private life of the young man
is the greatest and most effectual cure

Sarah Bernhardt Here. Sarah Bern
hardt, who appears in "Camille" at the
Grand, Davenport, this evening, was in
the city yesterday afternoon, arriving
on a special over the Milwaukee from
Minneapolis. Her private car was
switched to tho Orphan's home track
across the river to get it as fur away
as possible from the bustle of the city,
and in the car the "Divine Sarah" re
mained yesterday afternoon and today.
Most of the members of her troupe
put up at the Harper in this city, offer
ing good testimony to the superiority
of Rock Island hotels over those of Dav
enport. Mme. Bernhardt denied her
self to all visitors. Her pr.'ncipal ef-

forts seem to he directed to taking
good care of herself. So fearful is she
of the effects of anything resembling
fatigue that she puts those who look
after her to considerable trouble. The
management of the Grand has boen
notified that the great actress will not
climb the flight of stairs that loads to
the stage, and that it will lo necessary
to either transport her thither on the
freight elevator or by man power. This
same aversion to exercise rendered it
neces.sary to erect a special dressing
room on the stage, as the regular dress
ing rooms are above it, and are reach
ed by half a dozen steps.
"Pink Hussars" Good. The gener
al verdict was that "Thr Pink Hussars"
at the Illinois last evening filled the
bill. It was well staged with a beauti
ful setting cf scenery and had the mu
sic, the vim and dash that are so ne
cessary to a modern opera. The only
fault that could he found was a weak
ness In one or two of the star roles
where substitutes had been found for
original members of the company.
Reuben at the Illinois "Reuben in
New York" was presented at the Illi
nois Saturday evening. The title ex
plains the plot. The company and the
piay are up to the average.
Room of Paris Lodging House. A
room in ona of the quaint lodging
houses in which Paris abounds is the
scene of tho first and fourth acts of
"Leah Klesehna," that Mrs. Fiske and
the Manhattan company will present
at the Illinois theater on Wednesday
evening, Feb. 28. It is one of those re
alistic siage pictures for which Mrs.
Fisl &'s productions are famous. There
is little of comfort about tha room.
Bare white walls, a cheap was'a stand,
table and chairs, an alcove bed. a row
of hooks for clothes and a single g'lm

the apartment offers.' A. women's

touch shows in the few bright pictures,
pages from magazines pinned on the
walls and in the marguerites in a vase
on the table. It is t he sort of abode
that men of the class of Kleschna
criminal'' always watchful of pursuit
must make their temporary home.
There could be no belter environment
for tho intense scenes that occur in
these acts. The acting, said to be the
best, feen in this country in a decade,
stands out in bold relief against the
piain background of the room in the
Paris pension. The story progresses
swiftly, but the suspc-ns is keen until
the end and atte-ntion is riveted upon
the unfolding of the plot, as it is bril

The other day a man came in our office for a loan; he said
he had heard two men discussing us some time before and
one of them asserted that we charged an awful sum of
money for a loan. Pined down to facts, he admitted he
knew nothing about it, yet he set himself up as a walking
encyclopedia. The other man knew, as he was one of our
patrons. If you need a little money quick, don't take the
word of one of those "blowhards." Come here and get our
