For nearly three-quarters of a cen

its beneficient work for young men.
It has grown from a little group of a
dozen earnest young fellows banded to
gether for christian work to its pres
ent magnitude as an organzlation that
encircles the globe, numbering among
its half million members men of every
race and color. To define, accurately,
such an organization Is not an easy

it is hard for a woman to believe she

much less than the average made prep

so effective for removing or preventing
wrinkles, baggy cheeks and chin as a
solution madia by dissolving an ounce
of pure powdered saxollte in a half
pint of witch hazel. Every druggist has
the ingredients. Use the mixture daily
as a refreshing lotion. The quick and

own personal angle. So great a thing
has it come to be that to understand
its magnitude it requires no little
study and observation. Perhaps the
best definition of the work and purpos
es of this organization has been given
by Charles K. Ober of New York city.
In response to the question, "What is
the Young Men's Christian Associa
tion," Mr. Ober says:
"It is a high-class, far-sighted in
vestment In the greatest undeveloped
resource of a city its young men.
"It is a wise and economical enlist
ment of young men themselves In the
work of their own development.
"It is an attractive and workable
combination of the club, athletics, edu
cation, religion and organization, the
most effective agencies known In mu-
! tual improvement work with men.
"It is a far-reaching effort of practi
cal and resourceful men, through more
than CO years in nearly eight thousand
places, on a solution of the vital and
urgent problems of young men.
"It Is a philathropic and also self
interested provision of an all-round
opportunity for young men.
"It provides a clubhouse; the young
men fill It, and close evil places for
lack of patronage.
"It provides a gymnasium; the
young men use it and put increased
health and vitality into their day's
"It provides a high school; the
young men join it, and gain and keep
the higher places waiting for skilled
labor and efficiency.
"It provides the gospel; the young
men practice it, and the community
cuts down expenses for asylums,
courts and Jails.
It provides and organizes the time
of men; the best and busiest in the
community. The young men respond
to it and develop latent powers of
character and service.
"It invests money; it gets manhood.
"It invests sympathy; it gets friend
ship. "It invests small sacrifice; It gets
abundant and deathless dividends.
"It invests time and things that
might otherwise perish; it gets charac
ter that continues and perpetuates it
self, in vital and constructive forces,
for the moral and spiritual uplift of
"Its investments are human; Its divi
dends are divine."
Such is the organization whose
needs are prominently before the citi
zens of Rock Inland at the present
time. Such an organization has a right
to expect the support of loyal citizens
The importance of its work in the de
velopment of a new and greater Rock
Island is inestimable. We are all

things for this city and the first step
in that direction will have been taken
when the local association has been

WHEN HER BACK ACHES i
A Woman Finds All Her Energy and
Ambition Slipping Away.
Rock Island women know how the
aches and pains that come when the
kidneys fail make life a burden.
Backache, hip pains, headache, dizzy
spells, distressing urinary troubles,
all tell of sick kidneys and warn you
of the stealthy approach of dropsy
or Bright's disease. Doan's Kidney
Pills are for the kidneys only. They
attack kidney diseases by striking
at the cause. Here's proof of it in
a Rock Island woman's words: 1
Mrs. K. Peterson, 1206 Third
avenue. Rock Island, 111., says: "I
blieve that hard work and overexer
tion weakened my kidneys. I suf
fered from severe pains across the
small of my back and on this account
it was difficult for me to stoop or
lift. When I arose In the mornins
I was very stiff and lame and my
back was weak. I had often read
about Doan's Kidney Pills in the lo
cal papers and a short time ago I
got a box at the Harper house phar
macy. They brought prompt relief,
in fact, I did not think any medicine
could act so quickly. The contents
of one box of Doan's Kidney Pills
drove all symptoms of kidney com
plaint from my system and benefit
ed me In every way."

Corporation Bonds. V
Tangible assets and earning power
are the real foundations for loans to
corporations of a quasi-public nature,
although franchises of utility compan
ies serving the public are often of
great value because of the power to
earn in such grant itself.
Bonds of such corporations yield a
good rate of Interest, depending on the
ease or tightness of the money market.
They can afford it, as their net earn

dends in addition to the fixed charges

There is ample security In this class,
owing to the constant growth of wealth
and increase in density of population
