Set Carnival Date. The second an
nual show of the Davenport River Car
nival association will take place Aug.
23-28. The dates were fixed upon at
a meeting of the board of directors of
the organization held Thursday even
ing at the Commercial club. The pub
lic streets will not be used, as was
done a year ago. Instead, the baseball
park will be secured. The team will
be on the road the week mentioned,
and the directors of the baseball asso
ciation are favorable to a rental of
the grounds to the carnival associa
tion. This will avoid much annoyance
and inconvenience experienced last
summer, when there was a constant
stream of complaints to the officers of
the carnival association from the own
ers of property facing the streets oc
cupied by the shows. The attractions
at. the baseball park will be on view
afternoons and evenings throughout
the week. On one evening there will
be a parade on the river under the
auspices of the Davenport Boat club

What are you going to do with such evidence? Are you going to turn away

There may be a few people so constituted as to be able to perform such a
