MORE MONEY FOR
THE SANTA FUND
Two more cash contributions to The
Argus Santa Claus fund for poor chil
dren were made yesterday, one -by a
professional man, who handed The Ar
gus representative a crisp new note
on 'he street and asked that it be ap
plied on the purchase of presents for
children that would otherwise be neg
lected. The other one came in an
envelope from a member of the board
of education, who in an accompanying
note says, "your movement looking to
ward the happiness of poor children
at Christmas time is a worthy one.
True happiness is in making others
Tne "good fellow" sentiment which
has always accompanied The Argus
annual Santa Claus enterprise, is again
being happily received. People who
want to know for themselves what It
is to bring Joy to unfortunate little
ones are filling out the blanks appear
ing daily in The Argus and sending
them in. In due time these people will
receive the information desired as to
the names, address 's and aces and
sexes of children to whom they de
sire to play Santa Claus Christmas eve.
Altogether The Argus Santa Claus
endeavor is promising of greater sue-
I cess this year than has happened be-
sollenia funds for the lifting of the
mortgage hanging over Wayman
Mission chapel, the ono church left
to the colored people of this tlty.
Mayor H. M. Rohriver has consented
to receive donations and to see that
the money Is applied to the fund for
which It Is solicited. The colored
folks who are doing (he canvassing
for money have found many people
skeptical as to the ultimate destina
tion of the fund and to satisfy these,
the mayor consented to act as a sort
of receiver for the colored congrega
tion. As has been told in these columns,
the congregation of the church, un
der the able leadership and direction
of Mrs. Lavlgne Garnette of Chicago
Is out to clear the church property
of debt. An entertainment will be
given Dec 16 at Beselln's hall at
which the principal feature will be
dramatic readings by Mrs. Garnet t
Numerous contests which will prove
Interesting to those who will attend
are to be put on and prizes amount
ing to $100 In cssh will be con
tended for. Tickets to the entertain
inent are selling rapidly.
Here is another sample of the let
ters to Santa Claus that come o The
Argus by every mall:
"Dear Santa Claus, I thought I'd
write and tell you what would be the
nicest thing for Christmas, that you
could bring to me. My mother said
if I am not good, you'll surely tail
If this Is so, perhaps you could Jus.
send It by mail. Last year you brought
dolly. But soon she had en awful
fall and all her arms and legs and
head came off right In a heap, you
ece I kicked her out of bed one night
when fast asleep. But now I'll tell
you what to bring besides a book and
sled, dishes, some candy and a ring,
a new red dress.
"From your dear little friend."
Quick Relief for Rheumatism.
George W. Koous, Law ton, Mich.,
says: "Dr. Detchon's Relief for
Rheumatism has given my wife won
riertul benefit for rheumatism. She
could not lift hand or foot; had to be
ilftei for two mouths. She begau the
use of the remedy and Improved rap

Under the new arrangement the re
corded will have the rooms now oc
cupied by Circuit Clerk George W.
Gamble. These are on the second
floor in the south wing of the
building and adjoin the vault in
which the record books are kept.
Mr. Gamble will have his office in
the future on the third floor, the
same on which the circuit court room
is located. His office will consist of
two rooms on the east side of the
building one of which Is now used
as a witness room and the other by
the state's attorney.
BfAGILL, CROSSES HALU
State's Attorney L. M. Maglll's
present private office on the east
side of the building will be given
over to the reporter of the circuit
court, and Mr. Maglll will move his
offices across the hall to the west
side of the building. There he will
occupy the two adjoining rooms
which are now nsed only by the
board of review when it is in ses

board of supervisors.
The present grand Jury room Jtist

room on the fourth floor.
NO NEED FOR ANOTHER FLOOR.
The arrangement Is one that is
very satisfactory not only to the
county off! dais, who are to occupy

wha adopted the arrangement with
out question. Under this plan there
is nc need whatever for another
floor at the court house which" was
a wi'd plan that had been offered.
TO DISCUSS WORKHOUSE.
Whether or not the workhouse pro
ject, which has been agitated for some
time past, is to be a reality or merely
a time consumer in the board of su
pervisors meeting, will probably be
decided tomorrow, when the matter
comes np for discussion again. The
committee yesterday submitted plans
for such a structure to cost $7,500 com
plete, the building to be suitable for
the accommodation of 40 prisoners. It
Is the plan to place the rock pile in
the basement for cold weather operations.
As arguments in favor of this insti
tution, the committee claimed that it
would keep away the undesirables,
thus lessening the number of prison
ers and the expense entailed thereby.
They stated that the saving in the
feeding and the care of the prisoners
alone would be sufficient to pay for
the building In a very short time. It
Is claimed that a suitable site could
be found on which is located a stone
quarry, from which rock could be pro
cured to supply the pile. By the build
ing of a workhouse the contention Is
that $4,000 a year can be saved in the
feeding and eare of the prisoners.
Previous to the submitting of the re
port, Joseph Brodman, superintendent
of the Peoria workhouse, told of the
success which has attended the con
ducting of the Institution at his city.
In Feoria, Mr. Brodman stated, the
city acts in conjunction with the coun
ty, turning over their prisoners to the
workhouse and ryln8 the county 17
cents a day per man. He stated that
a county institution alone would not
be a paying proposition, but that If the
cities would cooperate, the institution
in his opinion would be a success.
