Our floors overflowing with artistic and durable furniture show the result of
our buying campaign to assemble a stock of housefurnishing goods that will enable
even the workingman with the smallest income to furnish his home with Gately
goods of the best wearing qualities. Considering the times with the ever present
high cost of living, we saw at the beginning of our campaign that low prices and
high values would be absolutely necessary this spring. Buying in carload lots gives
us the lowest possible price from the manufacturer and following out the Gately
plan we have marked these goods so that the consumer gets the benefit of bar
gains our buyers have been able to make. In addition to the lowest prices ever of
fered on furniture in this city we are giving the most liberal terms of credit ever
extended anywhere and there need be no delay in securing goods to make your
home pleasant and comfortable. Just make your selections, pay a small sum down
and terms on the balance will be arranged to suit your convenience.

MAY SECURE BIG
Tri-City Committee to Work in
Connection With Forward
NATION WIDE CAMPAIGN
Resolution la Adopted at Men's Mass
Meeting Held at the V. M.
The "Men and Religion" forward
movement was presented last night
. at the Y. M. C. A. to a group of men
representing Mollne, Davenport and
I Rock Island. Frank Nay of Chi
cago and Evangelist A. M. Bruner
'were the speakers who discussed the
movement. As a result of the dis
cussion, the following resolution was i
Resolved: That it Is the 6ense of
this meeting that a preliminary
committee should be formed to study
the men and religion forward move
, ment and to make preparations for
.the local part of the campaign; that
they take up the matter of securing
if possible one of the 90 great cen-!
tral meetings for the tri-cities: that)
this committee be composed of one
representative layman from each
church in the three cities which will
participate in the movement, the
pastors of said churches and the gen
eral secretaries of the Y. M. C. A.
in the cities to be exoflicio members
of this committee.
Word has been received from
headquarters that Cedar Rapids and
Des Moines have been chosen as cen
ters for the great campaigns and the
men last night felt that the tri-cities
were entitled to consideration In that
matter, bo it is likely that a deter
mined effort will be made to secure
one of the meetings to be held lo
cally. EVANGELIZATION OF MEN.
The plan of the forward move
ment is simply to attempt on a larg
er scale than ever before the evan
gelization of the men and boys of
America. All the brotherhoods,
men's clubs. Sunday school classes
and religious associations of men of
every sort are uniting their efforts
for the purpose of bringing the men of
America into the Christian life.
Fayette L. Thompson of the Metho
dist brotherhood is associated with
Fred B. Smith of the Y. M. C. A. as
campaign director, and preachers and
laymen of ability from all denomina
tions are getting into the active work
of preparation for the tremendous

near by will be invited to participate
and on returning to their own cities
will be required to conduct cam

By this plan, it is hoped that in ev

ing the next 12 months there will
be a strenuous effort made by Chris
tion men to win other men. The de
sign Is a stupendous one, and will
be made possible only by tireless
work on the part of each local com
mittee. Following up the decision of last
night's meeting, a call will be issued
for the appointment of a committee
to take up the work locally and to
prepare to get the most out of the
movement for this community.

THE JOURNEY HOME,
Years and years ago, when 1
Was just a little lad,
An' after school hours used to work
Around the farm with dad,
I used to be so wearied out
When eventide was come.
That I got kinder anxious-like

j But, dad, he used to lead the way
i An' once in a while turn 'round
So cheerin'-like, so tended "Come! j
Come on. my son, you're nearly )
That a Hers used to help me some,
An' so I followed father home.
I'm old an' gray an' feeble now,
An' trimbly at the knee.
But life seems just the same today
As then it seemed to me.
For I am still so wearied out.
When eventide is come,
An' still get kinder anxious-iike
About the journey home.
But still my Father leads the way,
An' once in a while 1 hear Him say
So cheerin'-like, so tender "Come
Come on, My son, you're nearly
