I will agree to buy Christmas gifts for . . . . .poor
children. I desire that ths names of the poor children,
together with their ages and addresses, be furnished me
through The Argus Santa Claus Fund committee.
Money keeps cm coming In to The
Argus Santa Claus Fund, today's dona
tions being In the neighborhood of
f?0, much of It in small contributions
of $1 or so. Apparently the appeal of
Santa Claus for aid In taking care of
the poor children of Rock Island has
not fallen on deaf ears, though it is
questionable whether all who desire
and are In position to give have taken
the time to send In a check. Misses
Giles and Ramser are busily engaged
In buying the presents toys of every
description, nuts, candles, books, and
clothing which are to be distributed
among the city's needy Saturday even
ing, and they are finding that there
will be need for every cent that has
been forwarded to date. Maybe there
Is still a good fellow, or a good woman
fcr that matter, who has not yet con
tributed and who believes he can afford
to spend a dollar or more to make
somebody happy next Monday morning
and probably for weeks to come. If
there be any of these. It Is not too late
to send in their mon-y. Te commit
tee can make use of it
L. S. McCabe & Co. today gladdened
the hearts of Miss Ramser and Miss
Giles when they went there in the
ccur-e of their shopping. The reason
was that the company decided to give
the ladles a material reduction on ev
erything purchased through The Argus
Santa Cians Fund.

tion in regard to the present high

pointed out that such action would cut
the price of sugar in half. A copy of
the resolution is to be sent to Wash
