THE ROCK ISITAXD ARGUS, FRIDAY. DECEMBER 2, 1910,
ON HOWE WORK

Island County -O fleer, Head
Before State Convention.
EDUCATING THE PUBLIC
Heart Must Be Appealed to in Min
imizing Cruelties Toward Man
George Ellman, officer of the Rock
Island County Human society, upon
Invitation of the president of the state
organization. nreDared a paper that
was read before the annual convention
of the Illinois Humane society held
this week at Cairo. Mr. Ellman was
unable to attend the convention, but
forwarded his paper to the state ofli
cers, and it was read and discussed at
the meeting. In his paper Mr. Ellman
Baid among other things:
'After all has been said and written
in regard to the aims, purposes, use
fulness and needs of the humane so
cieties; after the plans have been
drawn and the policies adopted; after
all the theories and various views have
been discussed by the officers and
members of the society, the work, the
real work, is left In the hand9 of the
humane officer, and he is the one, the
only one, to Co it. He is to apply the
theories to practice. He is the one to
handle each and every case according
to its merits. He must be very careful
in the looking up, investigating and
making out the cases that come to him
daily. He cannot afford to make a i
blunder for fear it may hurt the so-j
ciety; he dare not make any mistake j
for fear it may hurt him. In short, J
the officer is the man who, by efficien
cy and good work, can build up and i
perpetuate his society; or. through mU- j
takes and inefficiency, kill it. His

mane as any humane officer was or
ever will be. He the attorney for the
defense sometimes asked for an ac
quittal on the pl?a that the humane so
ciety i3 sentimental; that it is hurting
the defendant's business, and the case
Where the Officer Failed.
"There was a time when the brutish
man was brought into court for mis
treating his defenseless child, but the
plea was that 'my father used to lick
me a dozen times a day and it did not
kill me, and I will not spare the rod,
neither. There was a time when the
washerwoman was brought into court
for locking up her baby for five or six
hours while she was doing washing for
half a dollar, but the plea was that 'the
husband and father has left them two
vpars before the baby was born, and
-.ip was compelled to work for a liv
in all of these cases the officer is
a failure. His intentions were good.
his motive noble, but the remedy was fc"
wrong. And any officer who uses the
state laws and the city ordinances
alone for his tools will, every time and
all the time, be a failure. The tool,
the only tool, that a successful officer
must carry in his chest all the time,
whether dealing with the man cruel to
Iiis horse or cruel to his child, or the
butcher bey; whether in dealing witlijgjfjj
the street urchin, or the poverty-strick- j frjj
en, deserted woman, he must use only
one tool his heart. This is the secret
of the successful humane officer:

what nature, he must, first of all, look :

People who do not overlook" opportunities to save money are flocking to my store to take advantage of the great
big money-saving bargains my misfortune compels me to offer. There is nothing pleasant about it for me.
Here I am with less than a month left in which to dispose of all this stock of suits, overcoats, furnishings, etc.,
with the certainty that I must be out of this room by Jan. 1 staring me in the face. It means some mighty ac
tive selling for me and active selling calls for enormous reductions, enormous reductions means a heavy loss
that's what I get out of it. You save what I must lose, that is if you come here to stock up for the winter.
I feel that, as long as I am actually saving you big money on these clothes you will agree with me, I have
a right to expect you to help me get rid of this stock before I am crowded out when my lease expires Jan. 1.
