NOT TO ST. PAUL
Coal Men Compelled to Give Up
NOT ENOUGH RESERVATIONS
Will Probably Spend More Time Tour
ing the Tri-Cities Kokoal Scout
Tonight the advance guard of (he
coal dealers of this state and of Wis
consin will arrive on the evening train
of the St. Paul, on which special cars
will be provided for the delegates to
the convention which opens here to
morrow morning at 10 o'clock at the
Y. M. C. A., auditorium. J. B. Foster,
scout of the state, is in the city today
making the final arrangements for the
Kokoal session. The local com
mittees were busy today completing
Uieir preliminary work, and everything
is in readiness for w hat promises to be
the biggest and most successful gati-
eriug ever held by the Illinois and Wis
consin Retail Coal Dealers' association.
Announcement was made yesterday by
Secretary Lukens that the river trip
that was planned to follow the session
of the convention, had been abandoned,
owing to the fact that the reservations
for the trip fell somewhat below the
required number. Referring to the
abandonment of the trip, "Fuel," a
weekly Chicago publication devoted to
coal interests says, "Up to the time
when Secretary Frank E. Lukens was
required to give a definite answer and
put up'llie $1,000 forfeit, but 141) had
complied with the conditions, 147 of
these beings from the Illinois and Wis
consin association and 2 from the Iowa
and Nebraska association. The trip
therefore, had to be abandoned. Some
who had booked for the trip urged
Secretary Lukens to go on with it and
raise the price to make up the defi
ciency, but this he had no authority to
do. Every effort was made to effect
another arrangement, but the efforts
failed, and the trip had to be cut out."
The abandonment of the river trip
will probably give the three cities an
opportunity to entertain the coal men
here for the week planned to be devot
ed to the St, Paul trip. Since that has
been abandoned, the delegates could
find no better place to spend the week
than right here. This a number of
them will undoubtedly do.
Atlvrrtiurn Itork Inland.
"Fuel" in this week's issue devoted
a great amount of space to the coming
conventions in Rock Island and Daven
port, publishing as the main article of
the issue a sketch of the convention,
the program, and the local committees
in charge, with photographs of the oH
cers of the "associations. In another ar
ticle the three cities, collectively and
individually, and Rock Island arsenal,
are described in a very interesting and
attractive manner. Under the depart
ment devoted to the Kokoals. a para
graph is devoted to an announcement
of the big keruskation of the order
which occurs here tomorrow evening in
connection with the gathering of the
coal men. The ceremonies and ban
quet of the Kokoals occurs at the Elks'
rooms. A street parade will be a feature
of the festivities.

It aids nature a little, that's the only
secret about 'it. We refer to Ayer's Hair
Vigor. It feeds the hair, makes the scalp
healthy. The hair stops falling out and
all dandruff disappears. The result could not be different, for it's the natural
way. And it is splendid dressing, keeping the hair soft and smooth. Why
not save what hair you have and get more at the same time?

MORNING OF MUSIC!
Delightful Program Rendered by
Villa de Chantal
Hall Appropriately Decorated One of
Pretty Features of Commence
A morning musicale was today's feat
ure of the commencement week events
at the Villa de Chantal by the pupils
of the school and which, in com
mon with the other entertainments
presented there, reflected much
credit upon the young ladies who took
part as well as upon the faithful work
of their instructors. To attempt to se
lect any. one number as ranking above
another, would be invidious, for so de
lightful was every number it would be
very hard to discriminate.
To those who were not already fa
miliar with the high grade of work
done at the Villa, the program of this
morning was a veritable surprise, so
exceptionally well rendered was every
number from start to finish. The pro
gram was listened to by an interested
and appreciative audience that nearly
filled the music hall. The platform was
very artistically decorated with palms,
ferns and red carnations which formed
a pretty background for the sweet
faces and dainty gowns of the young
ladies who so creditably rendered the
