The Rev. Theodore Ekblad, for six
years treasurer of Augustana college,
has resigned bis position to accept
the pastorate of the Swedish Luther
an church at Superior, Wis. Mr. Ek
blad's action in leaving the local in
stitution is not entirely a surprise, as

his able management of the school's
funds, the board of directors recent

Ekblad to remain as treasurer for
, Ilrfdii Another Call.
Having completed the endowment
fund work .however, Mr. Ekblad be
lieves that his right sphere of activ
ity is in the ministry and has decid
ed not to accept the proffer of the
board. He has already tendered his
resignation, but it will not be acted
upon until the next directorate meet
ing is held. His decision is final,
however,- as he has already accepted
the call from the Superior church.

Augustana college and seminary, af
terward studying in Germany. He
was pastor at DuBois, Pa., at the
time he accented the position as

Musical Program in the Rveniftg
A pair of Armenian gypsy women
traveling in a two-wagon caravan, with
others of their race, attempted to get
away with a short change game on a
couple of Reynolds merchants yester
day, and as a result were arrested and
brought to Rock Island by Sheriff Ed
ward KIttllsen. They were given a
trial by Police Magistrate C. J. Smith
this morning, and each was fined $10
and costs on a charge of disorderly
conduct. The fine and costs, amount
ing to $64.90, was paid. The complain'
ants were S. S. Baker and C. A. John
son. Wanted Chance for BUI.
Mr. Baker conducts a general store
at Reynolds. Yesterday afternoon the
pair entered his store and purchased
30 cents worth of goods. They handed
the clerk a bill of $20 in payment Mr.
Baker himself made the change, giving
them three $5 bills and some small
change. They refused to take that,
stating In broken English that they
wanted silver. When this request was
not complied with, they threw what
Mr. Baker thought to be the entire
amount of change back on the desk,
and demanded their $20 bill. It was
given them, and they departed. Later
Mr. Baker discovered that he was shy
a $5 bin. He pressed a rig into service
and caught the gypsies two miles north
of town. They returned the money.
Had Worked Another.
When Mr. Baker returned to Reynolds
he told of his experience to C. A. John
son, who conducts a restaurant there,
and it was learned that the latter had
had a similar experience. They had
come into his place and bought 15
cents' worth of food, handing a $20
bill for payment. They finally got
away with an extra $3 bill, after con
fusing Mr. Johnson in making change.
He started after the pair in an automo
bile, but they refused to return his
money. He swore out the warrant for
their arrest, with the above stated result.

Buying these odds and ends at these prices is abont the closest approach to
handing you money of anything we know of. In some cases we are giving
these goods for less than they cost us, but we must make room for incom
ing new Fall stock, besides we cannot carry these goods over, that being
against the policy of this house, so come and take these goods away at
these smashed prices while they last. It's the final call. When these are
gone, the best clothing bargains In the tri-cities win have disappeared.

How She Caught Them.
"IIow did you happen to get fonr
times as many letters as I did? said
one washerwoman who had jidvertised
for work by the day to another who
bad advertised for the same thing.
"Wound up my advertisement by
saying I was on a diet." said the lucky
one. "That on a diet notice goes
right to the heart of stingy souls who
are trying to cut down expenses. They
hate to figure on a washerwoman's
meals and jump at the chance of get
ting one who doesn't eat. New York
