' Twelve minute schedule wai put In
to operation on the Third and Fourth
avenue lines running between this city
and Moline at 1 o'clock tills afternoon,
and unless there Is a cliange, the 32
mlnute schedule will be maintained
from 1 o'clock each afternoon till mid
night when the cars run Into the bam.
The shorter schedule makes it neces
sary for the Trl-Clty Railway company
to jiut two additional cars into com-
inisHion each afternoon. Further than
that, it knocks out most every chance
for certain connection with other lines
There Is some talk of asking the com
pany to operate the Fourth avenue
cars every 12 minutes throughout the
day and abandon the shorter than 15
minutes r:hedule on the Third avenue
line. Such a move would have Blue
line cars following Red line cars at
frequent intervals during the day, and
it Ik tabofwd therefor.

and thone who trAi.rf'T run chances of

The fact that it will be Impossible to
make regular connections because one

on the main lines will be a welcome
As In the past, the rien who have

GOLD DUST makes hard
water as soft as rain water
Every good housewife knows the value of nice,
soft, rain water for washing clothes and for all
cleansing purposes. It isn't always convenient
to secure rain water, however. Neither is it
necessary. Gold Dust will soften the hardest
water, and make it so near like the water that
falls from the clouds that you couldn't tell the
difference. 'Vr7-M,if'i- - -
Think what this means to you on wash day. There's a
deal of difference between the action of hard and soft water
for all cleansing. Just a little Gold Dust added to the water
renders it soft and brings out the greatest cleansing value.
Try it the next time you wash clothes or dishes.
Gold Dust really cleanses so
easily that - it relieves house
work of all its drudgery.
Cold Dust is sold

packages. The large

He Refused to Take His Wife to the
Because he refused to take his wife
to the theatre, J. M. Setterling waa
brought before Police Magistrate Sul
livan this morning. His wife, Eliza
beth Setterling, brought the charges
pgainst him for refusing to take her
to the theatre last evening. Mr. Set
terling pleaded his case, stating that
her complexion was bo poor tiat he
was ashamed to be seen on the street
with her. He claimed it was due
largely to neglect as he had entreated
ter time and again to use Sylvia
cream, but she refused his advice and
insisted on using inferior grades that
did more harm than good. Magistrate
Sullivan dismissed the rase against
Mr. Setterling and sentenced his wife
to use Sylvia cream and make her
complexion beautiful, thus ending the
family troubles. Young & McCombs

Thirty members of the Tri-City
Press club assembled in the Rock Is
land club last evening for the regular
April meeting. Supper was served at
6:30 under the direction of Steward
Ashley. Following, there was a brief
business meeting, at which C. J.
Zaiser, vice president of the club, pre
sided in Ihe absence of J. E. Hard
man, the president, letters address
ed to the club by members of the fam
ily of the late Hugh "Warder Roff, till
his death recording secretary of the
organization and one of its most active
members, were presented. A commits
tee was named, consisting of L. R.
Blackman, Roy A. Sears and Ralph V.
Cram, to draw resolutions and to pre
sent the letters at the next meeting
of the club, one which will be In memo
riam of Mr. Roff.
IMM VSS AWIAL ENTERTAIXMEVT.
The matter of some sort of annual
entertainment under the direction of
the club was discussed, and Chairman
Zaiser was instructed to appoint a
committee of nine, one from each pa
per in the tri-cities and three at large,
to make arrangements for the func
tion. It was suggested that a bar
becue or banquet be held and that the
presidential nominees of the demo
cratic and republican parties be
brought here to grace the affair.
Should it be impossible to secure
them, it was suggested that other men
who . are prominent in the country's
affairs be invited to come here and
take part In the entertainment. The
affair will probably be open to the
men of the tri-cities.
Stanley Swanberg of the Moline Dis
patch was elected as recording sec
retary to succeed the late Mr. Roff.
Four names were proposed for mem
bership. They are William Clark
