There has been a great change in
our regular bill of fare of today and
that of 5 years ago. It is perhaps
tmore noticeable in the increased sup
'ply of green and succulent vegetables

vegetables mere for refreshing, palata
ble and clearing quali'ies. rather than
for their nutritive food value.
It is vfry easy for many readers to

FOR WOMEN AND MEN
The Gideons of Davenport have
made preparations to celebrate Na
tional Gideon day next Sunday.
The Gideons are an organization of
Christian traveling men who are in a
practical manner endeavoring to j
spread the gospel of Jesus Christ in
the United States by placing bibles
in the guest rooms of the hotels.
Nearly 200,000 bibles have already
been placed. The organisation has
at the present time about 5,000 mem
bers, and is growing rapidly, and the
members can be readily recognized by
the small badge, which every member
is obligated to wear, namely, a blue
background with a white pitcher and
a lighted torcn in same representing
"Gideon's pitcher and torch," as found
in the scriptures, 15th to 2tth verses
of the seventh chapter of Judges.
National Gideon day will be ob
served in practically every city in
which there are members, but the
Hock Isiard and Moline members
have agreed to cooperate with the
Davenport camp, and the program i
will be as follows: j

AT THE EMPIRE.
Sophie Tucker is new songs and the
famous old Cherry sisters are being
made the recipients of the bulk of
applause at the Empire for the last
show of the season, which opened last
night Miss Tucker has four new sougs
and has opened a trunk of new cos
tumes for the last half of the week. In
spite of the new numbers she gave,
the audience insisted on "In My
Harem," "Now Am De Time" and oth
er favorites with which the singer
scored so heavily the first half of tht
week. Last night she was on the stage
for over half an hour. As long as the
audience wanted more songs, she re
turned. The best of the new songs
is "I Left ily Old Kentucky Home,"
done with "Fitz" as an assistant. Paul
Florus played eight numbers of the
xylophone and made a big hit with
his audience. Lewis, Griffith and Lew
is, "The 'Prima Donna, the Tad and
the Comedienne," went good in their
singing, talking and dancing skit. Jer
ome and Carson sang, danced and did
considerable tumbling which pleased
those to whom that form of entertain
ment proves attractive. Mrs. Casey
sings "Good Bye, Boys," with illustra
tions. The Cherry Sisters presented the
tame act they have been putting on
for the past 20 years. They do not
appear to have grown any older. The
old familiar drummer boy and "Ta-
ra-ra Boom-de-ay" numbers are done
with exactly the same gestures as al
ways. Where there were three at one
time, there are but two of the sisters
left. Last night the audience Insisted
on fir.ging the horuses with the sis
ters. Tonight and for the remainder
' of the week the act will remain at
the Empire. Nothing was thrown at
the girls last night. Manager Dolly
announced today that there will be
; two shows Sunday night, which will
end the season.
La Vita Causes Big Excitement in Rock Island Indications
That His Big Success Elsewhere Will Be Duplicated Here
Free Entertainments and Lectures Every Kight at
7:30 at 24th St. and 5th Ave. Big Success
Will Continue His Free Concert '
The great LaYita man, traveler,
lecturer, advertiser and philanthro
pist, who created such a furore in the
large cities throughout the country,
last night gave his first lecture and
demonstration to the people of Rock
Island. The entertainment was a big
success. The music and singing pleas
ed the crowd, as one could tell by
the expression on their faces.
The free concert is held upon the
large, electric lighted stage on a va
cant lot at Twenty-fourth street and
Fifth avenue, and the lecture by the
LaYita man is a remarkable example
of his oratorical power and imposing
appearance. LaYita has the look of a
man who has done many things and
accomplished much along the line of
his life's work. When he talks he
speak3 conviction Into the hearts of
his hearers. In an Interview LaYita
expressed his warm appreciation of
the manner In which he had been re
ceived In this city. "I have been kept
busy every minute I have been here.
I have demonstrated the IaVita rem
edies in the extreme eastern cities and
I have wondered if the people here
in the west are affected with the same
ills of mankind to the same extent as
those who inhabit the extreme east
ern states. Hut I am convinced be
yond doubt that humanity is the same
everywhere all are subject to. the
common enemy, disease. My theory
is readily accepted by thinking peo
ple because It Is simple, lemarkab'lo
and sound. I maintain that the stom
ach is the -supreme organ of the body,
controlling the life-giving fluids and
therefore responsible for either health
or disease. It naturally follows that
If the stomach Is restored to normal
condition good health cannot fall o
follow. The new discovery will do
j this and before I am here one week
citizens 111 substantiate my claim.
Every evening the rheumatic, deaf
i and paralytic are invited to come upon
the stage and test the healing power
of the new discovery. !
LaVita offices have been opened at
the corner of Twenty-third street and
Fifth avenue, where consultation and
examination is free to all. (Adv.) '
