LEAVE OUT MOLINE
Tri-City Reporters Club Finds
It Impossible to Run Ex
TOO MUCH TIME CONSUMED
Decided to Use Unique Advertising
Scheme to Announce the
The tri-city reporters club has de
cided that it would not be well to have
their excursion on the steamer W. W.
which is set for next Tuesday evening,
start from the Moline. harbor, although
there is a large number of Moline peo
ple who are planning on taking the
trip. It was found that if the start
was made from Moline, the boat would
have to leave the dock in that city
promptly at 7 o'clock in order to get
to "the levee here by 8 o'clock as it is
scheduled to do. This would make it
late before the real trip of the evening
commenced, as some time will ie
taken in Davenport where another stoo
is to be made.
Few Moline people could get to the
boat by 7 o'clock, while practically all
of them can get to Rock Island on the
street cars before leaving time. Tb
long time which is required to come
from Moline to Rock Island is what
makes it necessary for the boat to
leave Moline so early in order to gt
to Rock Island on time.- The W. W
is a big boat and it is no easy matter
to lock it through the Moline lock, and
this operation alone requires some 1'
minutes. . K

Something unique in the way of id
vertising is going to be given a trial
by the reporters' club. Oue suggested
that a huge pencil be made out of tin
and that this bei-pushed around the
streets with appropriate signs on it to
illustrate the fact that it was adver
tising the "pencil pushers" excursion.
Several ludicrous features have been
added to the original Idea and in the
course of the next few days, you can
expect to see a iencil some 12 fet
in heighth and a foot in diameter be
ing pushed about the streets.

Need of Suffering from Rheuma
It is a mistake to allow anyone o
suffer from rheumatism as the pain
can always be relieved, and In most
cases a cure effected by applying
Chamberlain's Liniment. The relief
from pain which it affords is-alono
worth many times its cost. It makes
sleep and rest possible. Even in cas'is
of long standing this liniment should
be used on account of the relief which
it affords. Do not be discouraged un
til you have given It a trial. For Bale
