was spent In auditing committee ac
counts and getting ready for the real
business of the meeting.
Apparently the most important busi
ness to come up at this meeting is
whether or 'not the county will unite
in an immediate building of a bridge
over Rock river connecting this and
Henry counties. Apparently it is the
Intention of the Henry county board
to 'force action and it remains to be
seen how successful they will be.
Rock Jsland county supervisors, while
admitting the advantage of the bridge,
hesitate about assuming the heavy
obligations It would cause. The Joint
bridge committee of the two counties
has planned a bridge, the estimated
cost of which is $70,000. It was orig
inally planned to erect one for $35,000.

national officers of the International
Stewards' association, at the conclu
sion of the meeting ot the New Har
per last night, where a- tri-city branch
of tbe above organization was founded
under the direction of Secretary Jacob
Miller of Chicago.
The meeting was largely attended
and a success from every standpoint.
Great enthusiasm was evinced over
the prospects of the local branch, ana
no small amount of good will in all
probability result therefrom.
TO PROMOTE EFFICIENCY.
The association, which was organ
ized In 1900, has as its aim the promo
tion of social intercourse among its
members, the promotion of greater
efficiency in the art of stewarding, and
the "presentation of an opportunity for
different stewards to meet for the ex
change of ideas, end to carry on dis
cussions pertinent to the methods of
purchasing and handling of supplies,
equipment and service, as well as to
discuss the question of employes and
In 10 years the association has had
a steady and healthy growth, now
numbering 20 local branches with a
combined membership of a little over
During the early career of the asso
ciation the local branches began to
hold educational meetings where dem
onstrations in the cutting of meats,
handling, testing of foods, etc., were
tarried on under the personal direc
tion of experts. Through these meet
ings the members gained an intimate
knowledge of the vicious manner in
which the public was being defrauded
by having palmed off upon them foods
that have been grossly adulterated
and treated with chemical preserva
tives. When these abuses were laid
bare 'the Stewards association got
after the proposition and it was large
ly through their efforts that the pure
food law was passed,.
The association has various educa
tional courses, among which are the
art of food preparation, stewardship,
food chemistry, bakery and confection
ery, clerking and accounting, house
keeping and applied dietetic.
