Whether or not Rock Island Is to
hare a new T. M. C. A. building to re
place the present antiquated structure
i a Question which will probably be
decided this erenlng at a member
ship meeting at the association build
ing. Statistics are being prepared by
Secretary K. C. Smedley today and
will be presented to those who attend
the meeting this evening.
The figures will show what other
cities In Illinois have done and why
Rock Island Is rreatly in need of a
new building. It is the desire of the
board that a large majority of the
membership be present, as the ques
tion is an important one, and if it la
not decided tonight action will un
doubtedly be delayed for some time.
Sentiment is greatly In favor of a new
building, for it is necessary that one
be provided to properly accommodate

Owing to the recent garment workers strike in Chicago many of the large
ready-made houses, knowing that they would be unable to fill a large portion
of their spring orders, canceled much of their spring woolens. Our New York
representative bought one carload of all-wool cloth which reached us yester
day, at 33i cents on the dollar.
Scotch Tweeds and Irish Tweeds, one hundred different styles of black and blue cloths, in
all the latest shades. Here is what the goods cost at the mill and you could not buy it one penny
cheaper if you bought ten car loads.
We had the cash. The manufacturers needed the money that is the
reason we got them. We were right there with the long green.
We have a chain of stores and can use any amount of good cloth at any time at a price like
that. A large part of this shipment is worth $4.50 and $5.00 per yard and our customers are going to pet the
benefit of all this, and just at a time when you ought to be thinking of anew spring Suit and prepare fur Kaster.

and costs, suspending the fine pending
the attendance at school of the chil

to spoil the child."
