VETERANS TO HAVE
A SPECIAL CAR
Those Who .Attend . A. II. State
Encampment at Aurora Leave
A DRESSY NECESSITY.
Bli ACKLKTS those graceful
necessities of the long sleeve
vogue we are popularizing in
the delicate gold hoops. The
heavily engraved hands in
hright or colored golds are
smart, and our jewelled con
reits have each an individual
charm. All at popular prices.
George E. Bailey, who is in charge
of the arrangements for the transpor
tation of the old soldiers who are to
attend the annual G. A. R. state en
campment which will take place at
Aurora this year, has announced that
there will be a special car for the
Rock Island old soldiers who wish to
make the trip. The delegation will
leave this city Tuesday morning aa
C:30 over the Burlington and go to
Aurora by way of Glen Rock and Men
do) a without a stop or change of cars.
Tickets are good . any rime between
Monday and Friday. Friday tho re
turn trip of the special car will bo
made. The Moline veterans will have
a special car also and there will be
one special car picked up on the way
to Aurora by the train which is to
carry the local special. Mr. Bailey ex
pects that there will be in the neigh
borhood of 23 veterans and thoir
wives make the trip. The fife and
drum corps is to make the trip also,
hidden in a corner of the cellar under
a pile of goods which was stored there.
The nuts, however, had lost their com
mercial value as each of them had had
the kernel extracted
It was quite evident that they had
been carried away by rats arid the
scheme by which the rodents got
possession of the kernels showed great
cleverness. It is generally known that
a walnut is divided into two parts by
a thin but very tough partition which
runs the long way of the nut. The
ats unerringly located this partition
and gnawed a hole in the nut cutting
squarely over the partition so thit
one gnawins made an opening into
both halves of the nut. A little hole
RATS KNOW SOMETHING
OF NUT'S CONSTRUCTION
Observations ly Local Man Who Lost
Walnnts lteveals Rodent's In
A good illustration of the instinctive
knowledge of a rat, has been found by
a resident of this city. The gentle
man in question is very fond of wal
nuts and he always has a goodly suj
ply of them stored away in his cellar,
Recentlv he found that the nuts were
disappearing and when the meriibers
of his family proclaimed that they
were each and everyone innocent of
the theft, he took, it into his head o
investigate. A careful search in the
cellar revealed the fact that about
cut into the nut on each side enabled
them in some way to extract the ker
nel from the nut as cleanly as one
could want it done and at the same
time made the work rather easy for
them. How they got the meat out ef
the nut through the small holes which,
they gnawed is the mystery ,but the
empty nutshells are there to prove
that they succeeded. The instinct
which they showed in gnawing in tli3
right place to make the work the eas
iest, is really something wonderful.
On scarcely a single nut, had they
faileAl to hit the partition so that the
single opening led into both compart
ments of the nut. .
