Exclusively.
Protests have come from all sec
tions of the city following the an
nouncement in The Argus of last
evening of the possibility of convert
ing the Illinois theatre into a vaude
ville house, thus again leaving Rock
Island without a home for the serv
ing of standard attractions. Numer
ous inquiries have come to The Ar
gus as to how far the negotiations
for the contemplated transfer of the
lease have progressed.
An explanation was offered today
to the effect that, in the event the
present arrangements for the change
in the control of the Illinois are ef
fected, it will become a Klaw Sc. Er
langer house; In other words, in
stead of playing Independent attrac
tions, as it has during the past sea
son, it will be booked exclusively by
Klaw & Erlanger, who have been
playing all of their productions at
the Grand, Davenport, and the Barry
more, Moline. It is stated further,
that vaudeville will be presented at
the Illinois only on those nights when
it is not otherwise occupied.
NO DARK SIGHTS.
The purpose, it is explained, is to
keep the Illinois open every night
during the season, instead of having
it dark the greater part of the time.
However, only time will prove the
practicability of such an arrange
ment the mixing of vaudeville and
the legitimate on the same stage.

THE TEST OF QUALITY.
It's easy enough to call the bluff
Of the fellow whose stack is shy:
It's easy to make the road more
rough
By letting a boulder fly.
It's easy to sneer at toe genius queer
Who strives for a purpose grand:
But it takes some nerve to draw
- kindly near
And lend him a helping hand.
It's easy to raise the ecstatic lays
For the hero at fortune's height;
It's easy to echo the songs of praise
That sound when he gets In right
But the man whose heart plays the
finest part
Is the one who can bravely stand
Bv the chap who has made an
unlucky start
And lend him a helping hand.

IVAL OF
330 Off the Bottom
IT had been our firm intention to strictly limit the May Carnival to
the ten days advertised at the start. So insistent has been the de
mand, however, from the many whose pay day comes right after
May 15, the closing day, for us to extend the discount privilege a few
days more, so that they, too, might have a chance in this money saving
campaign, that we have decided to extend the sale till Saturday night,
May 20th. , v
This, is against the McCabe policy of not changing plans once
announced, but our desire to accede to the wishes of the hundreds
of friends and customers, who want their share of the good savings and
whose pay days come May 16, 17 and 18, prompts, this time, the
change of plan and the five days' extension ' asked for. It is unusual,
but it is an unusual sale and the wide spread interest attests anew, the
popularity of the store that more than lives up so its announcements and
fills its contracts to the letter. x
t
It demonstrates again the popular slogan: "It pays to trade at
McCabe's."
We cannot, too strongly,. bring to your notice,' the great savings to you during the May
Carnival of Discounts. As the sale is to last beyond Monday to Saturday night we have
rearranged quite a few lines, where the selling has broken assortments and placed them in a
larger discount class, so that the savings will be even greater. The last week will be the biggest
of the sale. Come every day, it pays.
