and a stub line from Sears to Milan will
be operated. Since the weather mod
orated, the company has been opera i
ing a stub service from Sears to the
Watch Tower, but this will now be
transferred to the line over the bridges.
The company expects to put in oper
ation a 15-minutc schedule, but this
has not fully been determined. It is
possible that the short line service u
the center station will be continued, d
least on Sundays, to accommodate
those living in the city and just over
the line, and those who wish to visit
Mile cemeteries near the center station
Such a service was very much needed

tins is tne only lnterurhan service
which Rock Island has, and it shoul.l
not be handicapped by the necessity
of transferring at Sears. There should
be a through service from Rock Island
to Milan distinct from the Watch To.v

much more commercial value to the city
than that to the Watch Tower. It
would seem, however, that first clais
direct service might be provided for
both the resort and the village.

.1. F. l.ardner, general manager of the
company, today stated that four of the
new type of cars to be put in service
on the hill lines, will be completed and
put in operation about the middleof May.
Some of the cars are intended for the
Elm street line, but it is probable that
the dilapidated condition of the track
will result in a change of plans, the
management not desiring to have the
new cars ruined by operating them
over such rails. The cars will be
put in service lirst on the Long View
inc. where the track is in good shape.

When You Are Sick
Go To A Doctor;
When YouAre In Debt
Come To Us
The doctor understands your bodily ailments better than you
do, and it would be foolish for you to attempt to cure yourself just
to save the cost of his services. You need him at the right time,
too, or it may be too late for him to pull you through.
It's the same when you are in debt if you try to get along
without the right medicine for your financial troubles, you'll only
get deeper into the hole, maybe so deep that you can never get
out. The only real medicine for such trouble is money. So when
you are in debt, we want you to come to us we have the medicine
that cures and money to ioan for every purpose. The cost is so
reasonable that there is no excuse for you worrying along in the
old way. You can satisfy your various creditors and then you
will have only us to pay some time in the future. Better do it
now, else your money troubles will produce physical troubles, too,
and then you'll have to see both the doctor and us.
We loan from $10 up on household furniture, pianos, horses,
wagons, live stock etc. The property stays in your own' posses
sion. If inconvenient to call, write or phene us and we'll send
our confidential agent to talk it over with you. Everything ar
ranged quickly and privately.
