he was ordered to command, the gun

So brisk has been the demand for
seats to the lecture of Admiral Rob

unsold tickets left in Rock Island
and Moline will be taken across the

Admiral Evans has proved himself
a splendid lecturer, entertaining his
audiences naturally by having a
"great story to tell and telling it sim
ply and naturally. He is on the lec
ture platform only to the extent of
speaking in a few of the' larger cities
of the country. Davenport will be
one of the very few cities of its size
,'to be visited by him. The press club
in securing his presence was adher-J
ing to what has been its purpose
since its organization to bring a lec
turer here annually who was out of
the reach of other organizations.
This motive as carried out by the
club has brought to Davenport Com
mander Peary, Sir Robert Ball, and
other lecturers of note. Only a gen
eral response to tho invitation to
hear Admiral Evans will make it
possible for the club to continue its
work along these educational linos.
It therefor bespeaks a packed house
for "Fighting Bob", and is sure he
will have one".

Admiral Evans has sailed in a
number of the most famous of Uncle
Sam's boats. He started his career
on board the Constitution, better
known as "Old Ironsides." His first
command was the yacht America
manned with two guns and 24 mid
shipmen. He was next transferred to
IS MOLINE NIGHT
AT EAGLES FAIR
Committee Arranges Good Program
for the Occasion, Mandolin Or
chestra Being Feature.
Tonight will be observed at the
Eagle fair as Moline night, and it is
expected that the Moliners will come
down in force to take in the evening's
entertainment, especially as one of the
very best programs of the entire fair
is scheduled for tonight. The feature
performance of the bill is that of E.
E. Wicker of Davenport, who is a ma
gician of no mean skill and whose
feats are very entertaining. Professor
Cord's mandolin orchestra has been
secured to render several selections,
and George Etzel, a local young man,
will sing several solos and give a
character impersonation. Following
the program the evening will be given
over to dancing. The fair was well at
tended last evening and the program
was a good one. It included vocal
solos by Mrs. Mae Richards-Casey and

The Clothes that
Must be Right
Ready-made clothes havcivt taken the PLACE of
merchant tailoring any more than the CAMERA has
supplanted the MINIATUURE PAINTER. Art DIS
APPEARS when factory methods SUCCEED individ
ual CRAFTSMANSHIP.' Very GOOD clothes MUST
BE put together BY HAND and hand-labor is AL
. , WAYS apparent. The merchant tailor builds EV
ERY garment for the man who is TO WEAR it
ONLY for him, only for HIS figure. Only the mer
chant tailor CAN create a presentable dress . suit,
- because NO coat in a man's wardrobe MUST fit in
SO MANY places or can MIS-FIT in so many parts
of the figure. - Loosely hanging garments give the
ready-maker his BEST opportunity -he can't P0S-
1 SIBLY compete with the first-rate tailor in FUNC
TION GARMENTS. The same instinct that leads .
the man of culture to sit for a PORTRAIT instead
.of ordering a CRAYON ENLARGEMENT of his
PHOTOGRAPH, sends a GENTLEMAN to the MAKE
