IOING GOOD WORK
King Split Log Road Drag in Use
on Tri-City Pasteurized
J. W. PARKER AN ENTHUSIAST
Proposes to Call Meeting of Farmers
at an Early Data to Hear Speak
er on the Subject.
J. W. Parker, secretary of the Tri
City Pasteurized Milk company, has
become an enthusiast' on' the road drag
question. A dras has been made and
in use on the company's farm west
r.f Milan, and. though there has not
yet been an opportunity to test it un
t'.er the most favorable circumstances.
at Milan, when somf recognized au
thority on the drag and its work will
be secured to deliver an address.
Mr. Parker realizes that if every far
mer on the highway between the com
pany's farm and Milan can be inter
ested .sufficiently to put the drag to
practical usjtwill Jje possible to haul
milk by team to Rock Island every flay
in the year at a much less expense
than is now. . incurred in having i(
shipped over -the Rock Island road.
Every farmer living within 20 miles of
Rock Island -is interested in the same
manner, the benefits to be gained be
ing greater the further he is com
pelled to drive to market.
CaoiT Sraxon for Campaign.
This is a particularly good season to
discuss the road drag, the chief obsta
cle to the success of the meeting that
Mr. Parker proposes calling lying in
the fact that the highways are now in
such condition that farmers will have
a serious problem in getting to and
from the place where it is held. This
ha been a factor against good road3
KING SPLIT LOG ROAD DRAG.
Mr. Parker says it makes a wonderful
improvement. So pleased L-i lie that
he proposes to help in the campaign of
education in the making and use of the
King- rrag; and to do this he plans
calling a meeting at an early date of
farmers of the county either here or

agitation in the past,-the farmer being
much in the position of the man found
by the Arkansas traveler who did not
fix his roof when it leaked because it
, was raining then and afterward the
roof did not need fixing. But there is
evidence that people everywhere are
becoming fully aroused on the road
question, and at the same time are
learning how cheaply the highways
'may be kept in repair with the use of
jthe King drag. Much progress has
'been niade hi the central part of 171 i
' nois in this direction, and in Iowa
! there are scores of farmers organiza
tions formed Ur cooperate in dragging
the highways. It is time for Rock
Island county to act. Not only are the
farmers interested, but. residents of
towns and cities as well. The use of
the drag would widen the trading area
of every town of importance. Rock
Island with its inconvenient mean of
accs lias double reason io exert it
self in this matter, and Mr. Parker
should have united support in his en
deavor. lICMt Tin to Ilcsrin I'ne.
The spring is the btt time to make
and use the drag, as everyone who has
worked with dirt roads will agree. The
soil is in better condition to be worked

body is in a bitter mood to go to wvrk.
The method of making the King road
drag has been fully described a num
ber of times by The Argus, and the
country has been flooded with litera
ture along the same line. A sketch of
ono of these implements made from a
split log in the manner approved by
the inventor, and which was published
in The Argus last fall, is again given
for the benefit of those who may stiil

CORONER SCORES FAITH CURE
Henry County Death Investigated No
A coroner's jury in Henry county has
investigated the death of Mrs. Ida Ella
Wood ruff, who died at her homo at.
Wethersfkld, without medical attend
ance', having been trented by a faith
healer. The verdict criticises the meth
od of treatment and expresses disap
proval of the failure to ca'.l a physi
cian. The inquest was made neces
sary because no physician could be
found who would issue a death certificate.

Brandt's melodramatic success, "Over
Niagara Falls," will be the offering to
night at the Illinois theatre. Of all the
startling and exciting plays whero
thrilling situations prevail, there are
few, it is said, so great and intense as
thin play. The realistic reproduction
of Niagara Falls in the thin! act is
said to be nothing short f astonish
ing. Fanciful and Musical. "The Ginger
bread Man." a fanciful, musical com
edy full of real melody, much fun, a
cast of clever principals and a hest of
pretty girls, will appear at the Illinois
theatre Sunday evening. The book
and lyrics were written by Frederic
ivanken. the author of "The Chaper
ons," "The Ameer," "Happyland."
"Nancy Brown," etc., and the music
i was written ty A. lialuwm feioane.
whose tuneful Fcores in "Jack and the
Beanstalk." "The Mocking Bird,"
"Lady Teazle," etc., have been whist
led in many parts of the globe. "The
Gingerbread Man," as far as the story
is concerned, has many characters
dinned into childhood's ears in Mother
