Plans are being made by Rock Is
land merchants and professional men
for a Junket to Aledo Sept. 19 at
which time "Rock Island day" will be

ty fair. Various citizens have been
approached on the subject and those
behind the movement feel sure that
there will be no less than 100 on the
trip. A brass band will be taken along
to add eclat to the occasion. It is

Introducing Bonnie Lassie School Shoes
THE interests behind the Uonnie Lassie school shoes are the
largest manufacturers of all kinds of footwear in America.
Six months ago they sent out special representatives to
place these shoes on the market. They were given lists of the
leading merchants from coast to coast, but only one in eacii
town. For the Tri-Cities we were given the preference tliev
recognized the output we have on children's shoes, especially
the better grades.
The stylish appearance combined with the best of mate
rials made over foot-form lasts, caught our eye. But that was
not all, we know that all children's shoes must be finished in
side so that the tender, growing feet will be lree from contact
with rough sides or bottoms.
Thus our point ought to interest parents who have been
obliged to return or take to shoe cobblers , shoes which are
rouehlv finished inside.
Bonnie Lassie shoes cost no more than the ordinary kinds
and they have genuine welt sewed soles. The materials, the
finish and the fit of Bonnie Lassie shoes, combined with Jie
price savings, you will appreciate with a trial pair.

Our milliners are just back from the fashion renters where

WANT JUNK REMOVED
Sixteen owners of property in the
near vicinity of the Brady junk yard
on Fourth avenue petitioned the may
or and city commission to take legal
steps for forcing the removal of tha
yard. Attention was called to the fact
that Brady had been given orders to
move prior to Jan. 1, 1512 and that
since that time he had been arrested
and fined for keeping a nuisance. The
case was appealed to the county
court. The property owners want ac
tion. James G. Blythe circulated the
petition which was given to the may

one that would have to be threshed
out in the county court where it will
