HAVE VERY BEST
WHILE DOING IT
Suggestions ai to the Kind of
Pavement Bock Island
ON ITS BUSINESS STREETS
Uniformity Urged and Example of
Other CiUrm Held Cp as Val
"Hie best way to settle this paring
material proportion la to hare ail the
thorough tares provided for In one con
tract. To this end all the property
bolder on the various streets and ave
nue Interested should get together and
decile upon the material and then let
It be covered In one contract By that
meai-a better figures could be obtained
and uniform system of pavement
adopted for the new Rock Island.1
These were the words of an extensive
property holder who Is Interested in
one of the paving project now under
BK'T KOIK TOO GOOD.
"I believe In uniformity of pave
ment and 1 believe that the best Is
none too good for Rock Island." said
another property holder. "To adopt the
most approved material we have but to
follow the example of other cities.
Lock at the most famous streets In
the country. In Washington, In Chi
cago and In our own nearby cities,
They are all using asphalt. And that
Is what we want. We have tried brick
and In a good many Instances It has
done very well. In other cases It has
not proven so satisfactory. At any
rate we know what it la. and we want
something new and up-to-date while
we are about It. Asphalt Is smoother,
more even and more metropolitan. Let
us have one big sweep of It where It
will be submitted to all kinds of traf
fic. We do not need to go back on
brick. There are some other streets,
where Incomplete stretches are to be
put In whore they can have more
brick If they want to, but In the new
undertakings, where new paving Is to
be submitted for that now In use, let
It be asphalt, especially In the buslnes
GIVB IT THE TEST.
"What Is good enough for Pennsyl
vania and Connecticut avenues
Washington and State street and Mich
igan avenue in Chicago la good enough
for us, and It will get no more rough
usage here than It does In the cities
"Let us have a first class contract
with first class material for the new

"Cosily thy corset as thy purse can buy, tor
the corset oft proclaims the stylish woman"
Many fashion Journals are trying to make us think
that the modish woman is going to discard the cor
set, but when sbe gets to her dressmaker, she finds .she
cannot do without it. She must simply LOOK as if
she wore no corset.
The day of Wasp Waist, large bust and redundant
hips, has passed and women have found out that their
dress may be comfortable, artlatlc- beautiful and stylish
at the same time.
Most women now know that it is no longer necessary
to be uncomfortable to be correctly corseted.
There has been more real improvement In corsets In
the last few years than any other article of woman's
From s torturing armor of iron and heavy cloth, it
has become a dainty bit of lingerie of the softest and
most pliable kind.
The up-to-date corset Is so designed that it disposes
the flesh In propel places and helps to disguise the
fact that one has too little bust or too much hip, or
With more than fifty different models it Is as easy
for our expert corsetiere to fit your figure perfectly

shoes. We Insist that you should be perfectly com
fortable and the lines of the corset exactly suitable to
