that there wore a score or so of lads

may have fallen off the boat, fhat

shoes. Formerly he attended Xo. 12

Problem of Saving Its Forests
Southern Illinois is now studying ! the prices of both stumpage and manu-
forest conditions with the hope of for-
mulating plans which will prevent th?
total destruction of the timber, upon
which a number of local industries de;
pend. The forests in other parts of
the state have already been examined,
for the same purpose. Reports will
be made showing the conditions and
recommending appropriate action, par-,
ticularly the, adoption of a definite for
est policy on the part of the state.
Johnson county, the northern part of
which is located in the "Ozark region,"
has a large pe. rentage of land which,
because of its rough character, is best
suited for forest crops. Again, in Wil
liamson county, a part of which is poor
ly drained land adjacent to the waters
of the Big Muddy river, the supply of
the bctttr grade of timbers is being
rapidly exhausted to meet the demand
for mining timber in the coal belt of
this section of the state, 'ft is signifi
cant that the prices for mine timbers

Localities along the Illinois river.
from which the mines of north central
Illinois now draw largely for theiv
timber, will also be examined, as well
as smaller sections throughout the
state. A study of the question of the
assessment and taxation of forest land
is also being made.
Over a large area in the southern
part of the state the timber is being
rapidly killed by borers, and the state
experiment station is now making a
special investigation of this phase of
the forest problem, in order to ascer
tain the character and extent of the
insect damage. The result of this spe
cial investigation will have an impor
tant bearing upon the recommendations
to be made for the management of
forest land in the infested section.
By agreement, the investigations aro

HARD BLOW HITS ROADS
Federal Court of Appeals Sustains
Safety Appliance Law.
St. Louis, Aug. 25. Two- sweeping
opinions, noteworthy in that the de
cisions of the lower courts are re
versed in full in each instance, were
handed down by the United States
court of appeals here yesterday sus
taining the position of the govern
ment against the railroads in the mat
ter of the safety appliance law of con
gress. The" cases decided were those
of the government against the Atchi
son, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad
company and of the government
against the Denver and Rio Grande
By these decisions the court of ap
peals abrogates the common law-
rules of "reasonable care" that have
heretofore governed, and behind which
the railroads sought shelter, and up
holds in full the acts of congress,
which, the opinions hold, now totally
supplant the common law rules.
The Denver and Rio Grande case
was argued before the lower court on
demurrers, while the Santa Fe case
was tried by a jury.

Nason was drunk at the time.
Will Spend Large Sum. At a meet
ing of the board of local improvements
last week city improvements which
will mean an expenditure of approxi
mately $70,000 were recommended.
With the exception of a few small
pieces of improvement, most of the
work will be started next spring. The
board has started the preliminary work
early so that the court proceedings
can be completed during the winter,
and then the work can be started the
first thing in the spring. Notably
among these improvements is the pav
ing of Fourteenth-and-a-half street
from Sixteenth avenue to Twenty-sixth
avenue, with asphalt, which improve
ment carries with it more advantages
than any other like improvement which
has been contemplated for some time
The paving of this street means that
the Garfield . school will be equipped
with sewer and city water. At the
present time there is no sewer and
the residents will no doubt appreciate
the improvement. A good percentage
of the residents petitioned for asphalt,

THE LOAN BUSINESS
Has been undergoing a radical change In the ' last few
Now instead of the old time methods, whereby the bor
rower got into debt, was charged heavy interest, and never
got his account settled we have put some new ideas into
it. There is no reason why the loan business cannot be as
fairly conducted as any o'.her business. And we are doing
it. We charge a reasonable amount for the money, and
then divide the total into easy weekly or monthly pay
ments, and every payment made applies cn the principle.
We loan almost anywhere within 40 miles of Davenport
on Furniture, Pianos, Teams, etc, without removal.
Loans with other companies paid off, and more money,
advanced, with smaller payment. 72c is the weekly pay
ment on a $30 loan. .
We have a fair, square business proposition to offer you.
If you will write to us, our agent will come to your home
and explain our plans without charge.
