THERE is always a BEST store, not better than the best, but BETTER THAN THE

another clothing establishment in this entire vicinity who are as alert and well prepared
financially and otherwise to grasp every opportunity to benefit their patrons in price as well
as quality; as M. K. This fact has been demonstrated many, many times in the past, but
never more forcibly than by their recent purchase, whereby they are now prepared to offer

HIGH CLASS POPULAR
There's a great difference in
.jewelry stores, and for two years
we've been telling you wherein
we excel. But there are "myriads
of phenomena which are to us
non-existent, for the simple rea
son that our organs of sense
are not adapted to receive them.
We've said before, and we say
again: "The only high class,
popular priced jewelry store in
the three cities."
There is not a molecule in
this store that is not instinct
witTi life. When will you be
ready to receive this subtle, but
rare, manifestation of our leadership?
ies were important centers in the coun
try's early ' history.
Omit llrrr In lSIVS.
Mrs. Kinney came west and settled
with her parents in what was then
called Stevenson, in 1S3S. Her hus
band, the late Robert Kinney, came
one year later,' and soon after they
were married. Mrs. Kinney's parents
UKik up their residence in a frame
house which stood on the present site
of the Rock- Isla&iL.Xatioual bank, and
lived there for a considerable period.
Mrs. Kinney's description of the city
at that time is interesting. The east
ern boundary was about where Twen
tieth street now extenns, Deyond that
being dense woodland. On the site of
Moline was one log cabin, not far from
the river, occupiei by David Sears, Sr.,
for whom the village or Sears was
named. What is now the business sec
tion of Rock Island was mainly a resi
dence district, with a few stores scat
tered on the river front and along the
street now Second avenue. Houses ex
tended only a few blocks south, and
what is at present one of the prettiest
residence districts of the city was a
heavy woodland. The town extended
to the, west in a few scattered struc
tures, some of which were log cabins,
as far as the present site of the court
Hubhrri Knthrr'M More.
Mrs. Kinney recalled yesterday that
on the Fourth of July on which Col
onel Davenport was murdered in his
home on the islann she and a party of
her friends were sitting in a grove
bordering the river extending west of
Twelfth street. The news of the mur
der spread rapidly and created im
mense excitement in the village.
Mrs. Kinney's father was the first
jeweler in Rock Island and conducted
a store at the time. Members of the
same gang which murdered Colonel
Davenport robbed her father's store
She recalled the time when the mur
derers were hanged in the presence of a
large crowd of people.
Mrs. Kinney can converso interest
ingly'on other events which have oc
curred since the earliest days of the
city. She is apparently enjoying goad
Lohengrin's Wedding march as the
bridal party entered the parlor where
the -ceremony, was performed. Just
after the ceremony Miss Minnie John
son tang "Oil, Promise Me." A wed
ding repast was served and toasts
were responded to by Dr. C. A. Blom
gren on "The Bride" and by Professor
Andrew Kempe on "The Groom."
Marcus Skarstedt then plaved a violin
solo. The bride wore white silk and
the veil and she carried bride's roses.
The bridesmaid was dressed in blue
silk mull. The house was prettily dec
orated in palms, carnations and smilax.
Mri Lundberg is the assistant city
tlerk. taking the position with the be
ginning of the present administration.
Previous to that time he was book
keeper and cashier at Augustana col
lege. His bride has been employed in
he crockery department of Young &
McConibs' department store. They
will make their home for the present
with the bride's mother. From out of
town the guests were: John Lund
burg, Miss Ida Lundburg, Luther and
Edward Lundburg, father, sister and
brothers of the groom, and Linda
Johnson and Nora Bloomgren, all of
