THEROCK ISLAND ARGUS.

IN RAIL PROJECT
Rock Island Business Men
Aroused by Buffalo Prairie
READY BACKING HAD HERE
Bodies Representing Both Ends of
Planned Road to Get Together
in City at Early Date.
Naturally there has been consider
able speculation among Rock Island
business men as to the Identity of the
railroad that is reported to be back
ing the proposed combination interur
ban and steam line from the lower end
of the county to this city.
The Argus has been asked by a
dozen different men today if it knows
whether the offer is bona, fide and if
It knows the name of the road that In
dicates a willingness to furnish the
balance of the cost of building the line
on condition that the people of the
lower end of the county subscribe for
$100,000 worth of bonds and an equal
amount is taken In this city. The
Argus frankly states that it is not in
possession of this desired information.
Whatever knowledge It has of the en
terprise has come through home men
who ought to know what they are talk
Agitated for Tears.
The city of Rock Island wants a rail
connection wKh the lower end of the
county. One has been agitated for
years. It seems to be a settled fact
that it will be many years before an
exclusive Interurban line tapping that
territory would be a profit-earner. At
least that is the conclusion that has
been reached by promoters who have
Investigated. The Tri-Gity Railway
company was pressed to build a line
Into that section while Its new ordi
nance was before the Rock Island
council for consideration. Engineers
of the . company surveyed different
routes, and their reports were such
that the officers of the corporation
refused point blank to undertake such
a project for purely financial reasons.

The Buffalo Prairie citizens are tak
ing the initiative in the present move,
and they will have the encourage
ment and support of the business in
terests here. The Buffalo Prairie com
mittee has the pledged backing of
some leading steam road that seelts
entrance to this city. It may be the

"He was a delicate child, but has

Postum because of my own experi

"I am 0 years old, and have been
a victim of nervouse dyspepsia for
many years. Have tried all sorts of
medicines and had treatment from
many physicians, but no permanent
relief came. I believe nervous dys
peptics suffer more than other sick
people, as they are affected mentally
as well as physically.
"I used to read the Postum adver
tisements in our paper. At first I
gave but little attention to them,
thinking it was a fraud like so many
I had tried, but finally something in
one of the advertisements made me
conclude to try it.
"I was very- particular to have it
prepared strictly according to direc
tions, and used good, rich cream. It
was very nice indeed, and about bed
tiru4e I said to the members of the
"family that I believed I felt better.
One of them laughed and said,
'That's another of mother's notions,'
but the notion has not left me yet.
"I continued to improve right
along after leaving off coKee and
taking Postum, and now after three
years' use I feel so well that I am
almost young again. I know Postum
was the cause of the change in my
health and I cannot say too much in
its favor. I wish I could persuade
all nervous people to use it."

I'p to Rock Inland.
The Buffalo Prairie-Rock Island pro
ject has advanced to the point where
the people of the lower end of the
county are ready to do business. All
they are asking of Rock Island is to
take $100,000 of the bonds and furnish
a right of way through the city. There
is an offer to take over the belt line
route with the understanding that the
belt line shall forever be open to the
use of all other roads desiring to en
ter the city In the future.
Friday, Sept. 9, has been suggested
as the date of a meeting to be held at
the New Harper in this city to take
steps looking towards the forming of
an organization to push the proposed
Buffalo Prairie line. The Buffalo Prai
rie committee will come to attend the
meeting. The business interests of
Rock Island should be represented to
a man. It is a movement that means
much to the future of Rock Island.
MAD DOG CAUSES A
SCARE; IS KILLED
Rat Terrier Bites Several Other Ca
nines Before Dispatched by
A little black and white rat terrier
dog, suddenly gone mad, frightened
residents near Twenty-fourth street
and Seventh avenue yesterday. The
dog started on the rampage near
Twenty-fifth street and before it was
dispatched to the "happy hunting
grounds" by a police officer, It had bit
ten a number of other dogs and had
frightened many people. When the
cry of "mad dog" was first heard sev
eral men in the neighborhood immedi
ately armed themselves with shot
guns and any other weapon close at
hand and started in pursuit. More
than one shot was taken at the mad
canine before the policeman, called
from the station, killed It.
It is thought that at least six dogs
were bitten by the little terrier. Be
cause the weather was cool it is
thought that the dog had been bitten
earlier in the summer, during the real
dog days, and that the effects of the
bite just appeared yesterday.

IS NOT CHANGED
Board of Education Hopes -for
an Adjustment by Next Oc
ASSIGNMENTS ARE MADE
Corps Remains Practically Same as
Last Year Miss Ethel Carter
The Rock Island board of .education
held a special meeting last evening at
the high school for the purpose of as-,
signing teachers to their respective
buildings and grades and for fixing
their salaries. In doing this latter
work it was though advisable to regu
late the scale as it was last year, al
though the members of the board feel
assured that they will be able to ad
vance the salaries of the teaching
corps later on when the tax levy made
by the board at a recent meeting is
confirmed by the state board of re
view. This levy amounts to $115,000
in all and of this amount $S5,000 ia
for educational purposes, which in
cludes the payment of the teachers'
salaries. I-ast year the levy for this
purpose was $SO,000, and the addition
al $5,000 in this year's levy is to be
used in advancing salaries. It is hop
ed by the board that the matter will
be set at rest no later than October
and that it will be favorable to the
Few Cbangea la Corps.
Changes in the teaching force in the
schools are' chiefly In the high school.
In addition to the new principal, A.
J. Burton, there are Bix new instruc
tors, Mr. Howard, in tho department of
English; Mr. Harmon, history; Mr.
Eckert, physics and mathematics; Miss
Sturgeon, English; Miss Bear, Latin;
and Miss Schoessel, algebra.
In the graded schools the organiza
tion has been made without the em
ploying of any new teachers, the only
change being the assignment of Miss
Ethel Carter, who formerly taught at
the Kemble school, to succeed Miss
VIela Larrison at the Longfellow.
The board ordered that arrangements
be made for supplying the schools
with artesian water to be delivered
at the school buildings each morning
until the new filter plant which the
city Is having constructed, is com
pleted and ready for service. In this
connection a committee was appointed
to look into the matter of having ar
tesian wells driven on the school
grounds so as to secure a permanent
supply of pure water for tho school

President Armstrong, Univer
sity of West Virginia,
Talks to Teachers.
THREE STUDY METHODS
Elements to Be Considered Pointed
Out as Thought, Form, Imagina
tion and Emotion.
President Robert A. Armstrong of
the university of West Virginia gave
an interesting lecture at both periods
of the Rock Island County Teachers'
Institute at the local high school to
day, his topic being literature. The
afternoon lecture was a continuance
of that started in the morning and it
consisted chiefly in defining literature
and telling how to study it. The lec
turer said in part. "It is always true
I of great literature that it grows out
of life; it is a transcript of life. The
writer is simply the interpreter of his
age and he gives voice to what his
people have felt, suffered or achieved.
"There are three methods of ap
proach in the study of literature, the
historical, the biographical and the
critical. Some attention to all is
necessary in a thorough study.
Fonr Chief Elementa.
. "The elements of literature to which
we must attend in the critical study
of any masterpiece are chiefly four
the element of thought, of form, of
imagination and of emotion. There
cannot be a masterpiece of literature
which does not contain high and seri
ous thoughts. This thought must, be
put into striking, beautiful, pleasing
and permanent form. There must be
such an appeal to the imagination of
the reader that the whole is clear and
lifelike. The appeal to the emotions
must be strong, noble, natural and
vivid. All these elements enter into
a masterpiece and the composition
should move the soul of the reader by
its beauty, Impressiveness and power."
Yesterday afternoon, President Arm
strong spoke on "The Love of Books,"
and his talk was an excellent one.
Continue Xatnre Study.
Professor Fred L. Charles of the
university of Illinois continued his
talks on nature study when it came
his turn on the program today. His
lectures hold' an interest which is
much wider than that given the ordi
nary educator, because the subject is
one which in itself is very appealing.
Tomorrow afternoon at 3:40, F. G.
Blair, state superintendent of public
instruction, will be present at the in
stitute for tthe purpose of delivering
an address. The subject of his talk
has not been announced as yet, but it
will undoubedly be along educational
lines and will be well worth hearing.
The enrollment of teachers at the
institute was doubled today, the total
number being about 275 when the meet
ing" was called to order this after
noon. Nearly a hundred more are ex
pected to enroll tomorrow which
means that the institute will come
very close to the record In attendance.
The enrollments up to noon tcday ex
clusive of those who enrolled yester
day morning, was as follows: Ida W.
Lundy, Mary S. Dewey, Charlotte
Kenworthy, Emma Battles, Lillie M.

Takes Another Hap at
ITS LICENSE IS REVOKED
Held Tliat the Society, Which Was
Mixed in Local Deal, la Insolv
ent Negroes as Members.
In a statement to the state corpora
tion commission the Virginia insur
ance department gives the reasons for
its revocation of the 'license of the
Royal Benefit society of Washington,
D. C, the society having appealed to
the corporation commission from the
department's action. The explanation
is of special interest in the west be
cause the society involved was tho one
which reinsured the American Home
circle of Springfield, 111., which had
previously reinsured the Fraternal
Tribunes of Rock Island, the latter
'deal being largely responsible for the
j fraternal revelations in Illinois and
leading to the indictment of a number
of officers connected with tho Rock Is
Not lira! Fraternal.
The Virginia department charges
that the Royal Benefit society is insol
vent, that its officers had conspired to
defraud the members, and that Its re
insurance deals have been dishonest.
It is charged further that the society is
not a real fraternal organization, since
it admits both whites and negroes, the
department holding that the physical
and racial differences and the law of
the stcte make it impossible to regard
Cltho Kooletv as fraternal under these
conditions. Fraternals as a rule do not
admit both whites and negroes, and
western members will be interested
