on Easy Terms.
Tiie three story brick building at i
the southwest corner of Seventeenth
and Second avenue, owned jointly by
the Cobb estate and the Thomas es
tate, was today sold by Master in
Chancery J. L. Haas to John Bengs
ton for a confederation of $22,000.
The building has a frontage of 20 feet
on Second avenue by a half block
deep on Seventeenth on Market
hqiiare. The structure is one of the
oldest in the city, having been erected
long before the war.
For many years the Thomas drug
store has occupied the corner of the
first floor and there during the life
time of the lato T. H. Thomas, well
known citizens of Rock Island were
wont to congregate. It was in its
time a political headquarters and In -
ded one of the most popular places
in Rock Island. Since the demise of
Mr. Thomas the Thomas drug store
companv has occupied the corner. The

frtories. with the exception of the front
of the second story, which has been
used for offices, have been occupied)

It takes little of our time to mark

reputation of our Furniture depart

enormous stock each month for the
past three consecutive months, is the
wonder of American retail furniture

made these enormous sales possible.

Mr. Bengston is being congratulated
! on snapping up one of the rarest bar
gains in Rock Island real estate in
years. Within two hours of the time
he bought the property he was offered
a bona fide advance of $3,000 on his
purchase price, but he promptly turn
ed it down. He said the proposition
was away below what the property is
The new purchaser has not yet made
up his mind what he will do with the
property. "If anyone wants to buy it
for a brand new building" he said, "I
will give him a bargain." There is
some sentiment attached to Mr. Beng
ston's acquirement of the building for
it was in the drugstore owned then by
Charles A. Bense that he clerked when
he first came to Rock Island from
1S63 to 1868.

When the doors of the new Hill

space that was formerly occupied by
two separate business concerns has
been thrown into one spacious store

living room furniture, couches, tables,
davenports, chairs and the like. The
floor space, 41x152 provides a tre

latter being of steel, have been tint
