Now On At
"Much ado about nothing, is the way one woman put it after having spent an hour
or more at each of two of the so-called discount sales. In thirty minitues after
coming into this store she had bought a bill of goods amounting to $26.40 for
which she paid us just $17.10, a neat saving of $9.30 and in just a half hour.
This is at the rate of $18.60 an hour. Come in the morning, take lunch with
us and spend the day. You'd be able to fill your pockets with money at $18.60

FORMER ROCK ISLANDER IN
EARTHQUAKE AT OAKLAND
A letter recently received by E. B.
McKown from his brother, Bert, for
merly of this city, and who now lives
in Oakland. Cal.. gives the following
account of the earthquake July 1st:
"The disturbance occurred at 2 p. m.
Two distinct shocks were felt in rapid
succession, lasting a few seconds. My
experience, was such that I shall never
forget and hope never to experience
again. Rosenthal big shoe house, in
which I am employed, is located in a
three story brick building about 300
feet square, and the building fairly
danced up and down. I was in my de
partment and it seemed as if I was go
ing up and down all at once.
"Before I collected my thoughts the
second shock came, I Jumped from un
der a chandelier, which was swaying
back and forth, and ran for the street
with the rest of the employes and cus
tomers. The damage in Oakland was
slight, but in Frisco buildings were
thrown out of plumb, chimneys thrdw
down, shelf goods disarranged and
dishes broken. Two buildings separat
ed by four "to five inches rubbed to
gether at the top.
"Many people fainted and several at
tempted to Jump from tall buildings.
The people were frantic for some
time. Only two deaths I have heard of.
The papers will jaot publish the facts
and make light of the affair. These
quakes are no jokes and I hope that
this is the last. This country is great
and the only place to live for com
fort even if the elements do occasion
ally butt in."
