HEARTY WELCOME FOR THE EC
The Whole City Awaits Her Arrival
and Her Dollar Bills.
Everybody is waiting for the EC
girl. She will arrive in Rock Island
tomorrow morning, and, according to
all advance reports, she is coming
plentifully supplied with those prom
ised dollar bills. Early tomorrow she
will begin her work among the homes
of the city.
During the past week the E-C girl
has been scattering dollar bills broad
cast through Davenport, where she has
been the sensation of the year.
The E-C girl leaves a one dollar bill
in every home where she finds a pack
age of E-C Corn Flakes, the delicious
flaked corn food manufactured by the
Egg-O-See Cereal company. The en
tire proposition of course is a matter
of publicity for this famous Egg-O-See
product, but it Is so extraordinary, so i
lavish, we might say, that it is of most
unusual interest to the entire public.
We do not believe everybody in Rock
Island needs one of the E-C girl's dol
lars especially, but it seems a certain
ty that everybody will be glad to re
ceive one, for everybody wants to meet
the E-C girl and talk with her and
really see for themselves that she is
doing the most unique sort of work
actually giving away money.

wish "to take undue technical advan

that have made me guilty of asserting
myself a dog or an automobile? '
"Moreover, your honor, a man may
be deaf and dumb constructively.
