AN INTERESTING COMMUNI
CATION FROM THE
M. & K.
Final Outclearing of Men's Suits, Fine Fur
nishings and Footwear.
Women's Low Shoes
Glad Tidings for the Boys Going to School
It will Interest you to know this
about the M. & K., that there will
be a grand rally in our Clothing sec
tion tomorrow and for "early
comers" there are 100 men's and
j'oung men's suits of guaranteed
standard, $20, $22 and $25 quality
on sale at $14.50. We say for "ear
ly comers" advisedly, for we cannot
imagine that many of these suits
will be left Saturday night. They
are Hart. Schaffner & Marx, and So
ciety Brand style, handsome as only
splendidly tailored clothing can be.
Suppose a friend in whom you
had full confidence should hunt you
up to tell you that for $14.50 you
could secure a value of $20, $22 or
$25, and that he would guarantee
your full enthusiastic satisfaction
that all the value was there? Would
n't you profit by that information?
The M. & K. notice is the friend
that hunts you up to tell you that
fact exactly and all the strength of
the M. & K. guarantee declares that
it is a fart.
This is a final outclearing of men's
suits. Rarest thing you know for
M. & K. to sell men's clothing at
prices so far from their values, but
our Fall Clothing is coming in. Buy
ing one of these suits now a man will
have a new suit to wear the rest of
this summer and for all next sum
mer, if he likes, yet will have paid
only half what he would have to pay
Every other department of the M. &
K. has tempting attractions in store
for you tomorrow. 39c will pur
chase the finest underwear ever of
fered below 50c; 35c, 3 for $1.00,
for 50c neckwear; Men's Hosiery at
hurry out prices; 50c shirts that will
go out like the wind. Most men are
keen to get a run for their money.

'Twould take a week to write them,
She's fair of figure, fair of face,
And even the most spiteful
Admit her loveliness and grace
In short she's just delightful.
Her mental faculties are keen,
She's wonderfully witty,
She's something more than a fair doll
And not just merely pretty.
Yet one thing all my ardor checks
I cannot but disclose It
She is the fairest of her sex.

Rock Island Decides Against Patting
on Any More Wooden Head-on
Cars on Passenger Trains.
F. E. Ward, general manager of the
Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Rail
road company, has dictated a detailed
statement regarding the use to which
his road intends to put its newly ac
quired property at Barstow. When Mr.
Ward made his statement Tuesday he
had not received information of the
successful outcome of the Burlington
road's condemnation suit against Mrs.
Oltmann et al., of Barstow. He said:
"We are attempting to acquire-, near
Barstow, enough land to construct a
yard of size sufficient to take care of
about 300 cars. This yard will be
used to relieve the congestion in the
heart of Moline, which caused much
expense ana delay to movement of
freight last winter.

"The result of the improvement
will be to enable manufacturers at Mo
line, Rock Island and Davenport to
handle their business with greater reg

possible In the past."
Steel Cara Guard Life.
Managers of the large railroad sys
tems and of many of the smaller lines
are planning better protection for the
front ends of passenger trains. While
railroad operators have always recog
nized or rather been of the opinion
that the front end of the passenger
trains were more dangerous than the
rear, there has been no systematic ef
forts to afford extra protection. This
Is to be done now by the introduction
of all steel cars for the first two or :
three on every train. Vice President
F. O. Melcher of the Roc Island said:
More than a year ago we determined
to safeguard our trains from the head
end; and in pursuance of that policy
we have bought steel postal cars, bag
gage and smokers and hereafter we
will put in no more head-end cars of
wooden construction. This is to be
the policy of the Rock Island and will
be rigidly adhered to."
Brown Ifewa Compaay Out.
Next Monday the Brown News com
pany will quit business on the Rock
Island railway, and the newsboys that
will sell papers and refreshments will
all be employed by J. J. Grier. Mr.
Grier owns the entire lunch coun
ter system on the Rock Island. It is
said that the ousting of the Brown
News company is the result of the re
cent trouble over obscene pictures.
During the last few weeks several of
the agents on the Rock Island have
been arrested for selling alleged ob
scene pictures. Some of the arrests
were made by the police in different
cities and some by the Rock Island
detectives. It was known several
weeks ago that Mr. Grier would get
the news business on the Rock Island,

arrive here until today.
