this afternoon for the port at the head
of the river. In the list of passengers
is a trio of Davenport young men who
intend returning down the river In a

and H. Hulbe are the men who have
the trip under contemplation. They
have taken the skiff with them on tb
big steamer. They will float down the
river, taking things easy and during
the cooler periods of the days.
The passenger list Included several
Rock Island people. They are Mr. and
Mrs. Charles Hodgson, Miss A. Munger,
Ben Schroeder, IL O. Hampton, Mr.
and Mrs. George Schroeder and child,

Do Your Cooking in the Cool
A hot kitchen is Ettle better than a prison in summer. But
the range is there, so all the cooking and the washing must be
done there, too.
What a relief it would be to move the range where you
pleased. You can do this with a New Perfection Oil Cook
stove cook your dinner out on the porch, if you like. It is the
only range that is really portable that works eaually well in
any place. There are no connections to be made, as in a gas
range; no wiring, as with an electric stove; no sooty flues and
ash-filled grates, as with coal or wood.
The long, enameled chimneys carry the heat directly up to
saucepans, oven or boiler ; you get full value from your fuel,
without waste, f
