of Reyt olds, Illinois, and wt-re for fifty
cents ech. To this was added, a little
later, a gift of a like amount by a Rock
Island boy. In May of the same year,
the board of directors appropriated the
surplus from the current expense fund of
previous years, amounting to ovtr 200,
to the sime object. On tbe evening of
Sept. 2, '87, a meeting of members of the
Association was held, at which $1,000
was sut scribed and a building committee
appointed. The project began with a
proposi ion to rent, and later, to buy No.
1609, 8 cond avenue, next to buy and
rernodeJ the Armory building, and after
some efforts looking to a joint building
on Spet cer square, it was finally decided
to buy a site and build. The question of
location was of great difficulty. The
commit :e cim-fully considered twenty
three si.es, being all that were available
that we-e at all suitable, and tbe result
was a unanimous decision, by the com
mittee tnd assotiii'ion, for the present
location. Tbe purchase was consumated
n Aug., '88, bv articles of agreement.
and tbe transfer made by deed in March,
89, at which time entire payment was
made and a satinfactoroy and clear title
secured. The movement received great
help frcm the state convention. Sept. '83,
shortly after which the fund stood at
$12,00(1, with all subscriptions binding.
In Oct., '88, the committee decided on
an architect, and since then have spent
mudn time on the plans and held several 1
consultations with tbe best posted associ
ation men in the country. The thorough,
careful work done has resulted in floor
plans verfectly adapted to the need of
the association. In June, '89, the con
tract for the foundation was let, which
was completed in August. It rests on
rock and is laid throughout in cement.
The contract under which the present
work is being done, calls for enclosing
the building and finishing four rooms by
Sept. V. next-
The total cost of lot and foundation
was $7,115. Tbe present contract is for
f 16,290. The total available subscrip
tion to the present time is $16,686. leav
ing, af.er deductions for architect's fees
and otl er expenses, over $7,000 to bo
raised on present contract.

work of the association in the way of

Island braucb for what it had done, and
dwelt cn the accomplishments of the Y.

Well, last evening the new Wide.
Awakes had one of their own little socia
ble affairs. They had a keg of beer, and
about the time the keg was empty and
the firemen were full, John Rooney. who
knew of the condition the men,
went up to Trcraao's meat market at the
comer of Third avenue and Seventeenth
street and sent into the waterworks an
alarm ot fire from the Fourth, ward to
see the new company turn out. There
was tbe usual clanging of bells, and tbe
wild west exhibition on the street, as tbe
team aanea aown in "not haste from a

NOT many things are harder than to select presents.
To get something that will be good of its kind, pleasing and
useful, and not too costly, is what we all wish to do, but
don't always succeed in.
We store keepers all think we can meet these require
ments; but perhaps in a China store, the things to choose
from make it easier to satisfy oneself than in most others.
If you intend making birthday, wedding orannivereary
presents, wouldn't it be well to call and see what is here?
I have a great many new things, some expensive, and
some not at all so. Among staples are a new and very neat
brown decoration open stock dinner pattern; something
good enough for every day use, or far better if you don't
use fine china, and in which you can have just what you
want from a tea pot lid (for example) to a full dinner set.
A regular 112 piece set would cost about $14.00. I have
others for less one style for $10.75, decorated in colors.
