Davenport Fans More Interested in
j Three-Eye Situation Than in
Central Berth. '.
MEET AND TALK IT OVER
Adjourn After Instructing James T.
Hayes to Feel Out City and
Call Another Meeting.
Ameeting was held at the Commer
cial club in Davenport last evening
for the purpose of considering the
proposition of making application for
a berth in the Central baseball asso
ciation. There is a vacancy due to
the ousting of Oskaloosa and the
league is anxious to have Davenport
bid for the place. Geneseo and Han
nibal are already applicants and Mus
catine may also apply. Piesident M
E. Justice of Burlington was present
last evening and discussed the situa
tion with the fans present. James T.
Hayes, former manager of the Three
Eye club in Davenport, was also pres
ent Mid took an active part in the
Xot Hatlly AVautnl.
It appears that Davenport does' not
really' want a place in the Central.
The fans over the river want nothing
less than the Three-Eye, and with tho
present situation holding out hope of
getting back into the Three-Eye, they
are not very enthusiastic over the
Central proposition. Xo action was
taken last evening, but a later meet
ing may be heid to consider the mat
ter further, i
To Look Over Uronud.
The meeting adjourned after decid
ing to turn the matter over to Mr
Hayes to investigate. . He was in
structed to canvass the situation and
if the prospects are favorable for ap
plication for the vacant place in the
Central, he will call a meeting for the
purpose of making formal application.
While Davenport is giing courteous
attention to the advances of the Cen
tral, however, its leal interest is cen
tered on the Three-Eye situation, and

Owing to its extreme length
one section of this subject will
: be shown on each of the above
the fans, are still hoping that som"
development will leave an opening for
them to again get into the Three-Eye.
If later developments preclude any
possibility of this, definite action may
be taken on the Central league's prop-,
osition, but until the Three-Eye berth
are all finally filled, and all of the
league's affairs are straightened out
for the season, Davenport . will not
give the Central serious consideration.
AN EXPRESSION IS ASKED
Auto Owners of Three Cities Sounded
on Forming Motor Club.
Letters, relative to the formation of
the proposed Tri-City Motor club, were
mailed to each owner in Rock Island,
Davenport and Moline yesterday by
W. H. Van Dervoort, president of the
Moline Automobile company. Statis
tics as compiled by the secretary of
state, in Iowa and Illinois, show 438
registrations from the tri-cities, and
each one of the owners has been
ashed to express his or her viows in
regard to the possibility of effecting an
"With over 400 registrations from
the tri-citios, the motorists should
have little trouble in forming a club,"
said Mr. Van Dervoort. "I 'have asked
each owner if it is deemed advisably
to set aside a night In the near future
to' talk over plans, and if favorable
repKes are received, notices will be
given to the different newspapers
naming the date decided upon for the
first meeting. The state associations
will be of great assistance to us in
organizing and through being affili

good in the matter of road improve-!

UNIQUE ORRINE DISPLAY.
The Harper House Pharmacy Have an
Unique Display in Their Win
dow This Week.
The display is featuring Orrine, the
standard liquor habit cure, which this
store has handled for a number of
years with much success. Four beau
tiful panels, handsomely illustrated,
depict .scenes of every-day life, forci
bly brought to the . attention of pas-
sersoy. who are interested in someone
addicted to the curse of drink. One
picture shows the workman being dis
charged "by his employer with the
statement "drinking men not wanted."
Employers nowadays do not keep men
on their pay rolls whose brains are
not steady and whose heads are not
clear. Drinking men are not reliable.
Another scene shows the druggist, en
dorsing Orrine and advising the cus
tomer that drunkenness is a disease
and that Orrine will cure it. : Orrine
has the hearty endorsement of drug
gists selling it as they know it is doing
muci good in every vicinity. The
next two scenes show the man who
has previously been discharged for
drunkenness now reclaimed by the use
of Orrine given to him secrel'y by
his wife, who standing by his side
says: "I'm the happiest. woman in the
r.'oriu. Orrine cured my husband."
Next, the man is" shown at his work
drawing full pay and in the picture
of health. . .
This display is a remarkable ex
hibit and state that much interest is
bein-r taken in it and that they-are
glad to talk to anyone interested in
orrine, or wnicn , they nave soul a
large quantity and know of excellent
results from its use in this city.
Orrine costs but $1 a box and a com
plete cure costs less than the average
drinking man will spend for liquor for
himself and friends in a day. It can
be given secretly if desired and if a
cure is not effected, the money is posi
tively refunded. . ' .
Be sure and see the display and get
a free booklet.
