- -Relief Society Rummage. An event
find date that Davenporters should not
lallow to slip their memory is the an
nual rummage sale on Thursday, Nov.
'.' As usual, this will be conducted
iby the Ladies' Industrial Relief so
ciety for the benefit of the worthy
yocr of the city. Housewives should
now begin to collect the various things
which they are willing to" donate,
where the donor is unable to send
tbern to the headquarters, a telephone
rail to No. 103 will brlDg a wagon.
There is a special demand for fcts
and millinery. It is desired to have
these sent as soon as possible to the
Industrial home on Sixth street. A
number of ladies have volunteered to
alter and repair them where such is
needed. It is probable that many , of
the millinery shops of tbe city have
hats which by reason of the advanc
ing style are no longer desirable in
"their stock, but which would be most
acceptable to many a poor person. The
managers of the rummage sale would
be most thankful for them. Mrs. W.
V. Bettendorf is in charge of this de
partment of the work.

When will the new T. M. C. A. build
tag be opened?
This question is asked many times
daily, and the answer given by the Y,
M, C. A. authorities is always tr
same. .The building will be opened for
use just as soon as the subscribers
to the -fund will permit. The only
thing that prevents the opening date
from being set Is the failure of con
tributors to contribute.
There is really only a comparatively
small amount outstanding on unpaid
pledges, and it is most . unfortunate
that the neglect of a few should hin
der the completion of this great pub-
He. work.-- Mdst of the subscribers
have met their obligations in full, and
it is the comparatively small number
who have neglected to do so that cause
Some of the secretaries are working
hard daily at the task of calling on
subscribers and making collections, but
It is a slow and difficult task, and one
that will take a long time to finish
without the cooperation of the people
who have pledges.
ALL BUT DOE.
The work on the building is al
done but the finishing touches. Part
of the furnishings have already been
installed, and more are going in every
day. The big social lobby, which
to be the center of the activities of
the association, is all ready for its fur
niture ana tne aining room is very
nearly ready for the first meal to be
People who have enjoyed the priv
lege of a preliminary look are loud in
their praises of tbe beauty and con
venience of the building, and the uni
versal sentiment is of eagerness to get
into it and begin to use it.
Requests are received daily for res
ervations in the dormitory, and quite
a few young men are beginning to
wonder if they will have to camp out
on the streets temporarily while wait
ing for a chance to occupy their rooms
in the building. It is no wonder that
young men are anxious to get into the
dormitory, for it would be hard to im
agine a more convenient and attractive
place to live. The rooms are pleasant
ly arranged and furnished in the most
attractive style, and will make a de
