THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1912.
PLATE GLASS IS
BROKEN IN FIGHT
Two Negroeg and a White Man
Throw Bricks at Each Other
After Arguing Politics.
Bricks flew thick and fast last even
ing In a fight In which a white man
and two colored men were the particJ
panu, on the corner of Second avenue
and Eighteenth street. It seems as
though the three got into a heated
argument over politics and the de
nouement was an exchange of rocks
and bricks in an effort to exterminate
each other. All three were considera
bly bartered up.
In the course of the battle a brick
missed its Intended mark and crashed
through the big 12x10 feet plate class
window on the west side of the Hub
clothing store. The battlers beat a
hurried retreat when the brick made
its debut through the big window.
I. R. Crane, proprietor of the Hub.
received a telephone call about 10:30
o'clock to the effect that a miniature
battle was taking place In front of his
store, and that the windows In his
store were being made the targets of
flying missile. Mr. Crane hurried
down to the store, but the white flag
had been shoved up some time before
and the enemy had evacuated, and he
found only a scene of ruin.

The tri-cities are thickly sprinkled with happy homes which we have created in this way, and every tenant of these homes has had cause for self - congratulatoin a
hundred times over. Anything that pleases the great masses of the people, as this plan has, is beyond the reach of criticism. Have you ever noticed the comfortable,
cozy and happy homes of the majority of our tri-city wage-earners? Did it ever occur to you that Summerfield's credit service is directly responsible for thous
ands of these ideal homes? Well, it is a positive fact! Any store which improves the condition of the wage earner is a valuable asset to the city, and Summerfield's
credit service has made more hearts happy than all the cash stores of Davenport, Rock Island and Moline combined.
