In the aemJ-annual meeting of the
Bock Island County Druggists' assorla
tlon held last night at the New Harper,
reports from the local druggists who
were In charge of the Illinois Pharma
ceutical convention held here In June,
were read. From these reports it was
found that, locally aa well as other
wise, the conrentlon was a success.
The treasurer's report showed that
there is a neat balance In the associa
tion's strong box. Before bringing the
meeting to a close delegates were se
lected to the National Association of
Retail Druggists to be held at Niagara
Falls during the week of Sept. 11.
Charles Brunstrom of Mollne and V il
liam Ullemeyer of Rock Island were
selected to that office. M. W. Battles,
Jr. ,of Mollne and A. J. Reiss of Rock
Island were named as alternates.
NIAGARA IS POPl'LAR.
The convention will exceed all pr?
rious records in point of attendance,
according to responses which hav
been sent In to those in charge. Th':
location of the convention city has a
great deal to do with that.

It is probable that definite plans will
be announced by the administration
leaders after the governor's visit to
Chicago this week and that the fight
will be on within a few days.
The administration leaders are still
in the dark as to the governor's per

be a candidate himself for renomina

that eventually he will become a candi

Joseph Hartman, a 17-year-old lad

fracture of his right leg while at work
last night. He was standing on a step

he lost his balance and fell to the

later showed that a bone was broken.

A statue of Hebe, standing erect,
has been placed on one of the pedes

new statue replaces the one of Hebe,

two years ago when a violent wml

The former statue was presented to
the city by L. S. McCabe.
