Little mends. FllEE to all Without restriction.

lint square, honest, upright and honorable business methods. What the London does is done openly.
If we choose to give the boys of Rock Island, Moline, Davenport and surrounding country a grand Christ
mas gift, without any cost to them, whether or not they have ver bought of us, and giv it with a free
will simply to be remembered by them, we consider it nobody's business but our ovrn. Some who (previous
to our coming to Rock Island) had the clothing business all to themselves and were getting. rich fast by
making enormous profits are now squealing at the London's liberality and Low prices.
KinofiAn ennanit I. then trv to mak us oat as Gamblers. Schemers. arnera or

m. ' .r ;nAVAat oni'ooo-fcrnoaa in a.ni feared now is nothino compared to what it will be when the boys see
"Little 1-iord Fauntleroy" In his fine harness, and hitched to his cart, displayed in our large show window, at
which time the guessing will begin. '
KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE WINDOW.
Read the following, describing the manner in which the pony will be presented:
The arraneement is a very simple one and one that is wholly orig nal with the London. Instead of adhering lo a curt
h.i.inesa house-of distributing Utile prizes among tbeircusu mere during the holiday orofgiviog a Waterbury
custom punned by many
watch or a nook or a
package of candy with s many doll-n' worth of goods sold, the London will notgive a little here and there, but combine all into one grand holi
day (rift, free to all without restriction. There ia no effort nor disposition on the part of the London folks to make up the amount that
their outlay tn a gift on the gooda the? tell. This is not their practice. They make thla grand prise as a return and token of appreciation
for the good will and patronage extended them since coming Into Rock Island. Nor do they intend to reatrirt this grand ntfl to ctoeaera.
They have hit upon a plan to be carried oat la fpresenttuff it which will be sprrtrisied bv alL It ia aiopl tbla: Tbe pooy. which
has been named "LUt!e Lord FaanteJroy with the beautiful cart and harnesa to match, will be artiaticallr displayed in tbe window. Near by
will appear a pyramid of nuts of various kinds. From then until the morning of New Tear's day every boy between Its ages of three
and eighteen will be Invited whether he has ever been in the London store before, or ever expects to again or not, to guess bow many there are
in the pile of nuts. One of his Barents or his guardian must aceomoanv him when hia ruesa Is recorded. That is all that la required. On
New Yeai'a day at 1 p. m. sharp a committee of throe ladies will count tbe nuta and tbe boy whose guess comes nearest la the number will
carry off tbe pony and outfit. The hoys ia having their gneeaes registered are required to rail one at a time, the object of this requirement as well
as that they be accompanied by their parents, beiog to preserve order in the store, and not lo permit tbe proceedings attendant upon the giving
aw it of tbe prize to interfere with the business of the store.
As a further evidence of the London's disposition to have all participate in the opportunity to receive the gift, the London will permit nay
and all who have dealt with the house, or who are acquainted with the methods employed bv tbe house, and will write them a letter expressing
their sentiments or opinion of tbe same, to register their gueesof the nuta In tbe pvramid. Otherwise it will be tectricted to boys only.
This last arrangement is only further eviiience of the London's desire to pleaae alt, and to know if their busiaeaa system meets with popular
approval to tne end that It may be remedied, if it does not.
Tbe London is determined to please, no matter at what cost, and will spare neither trouble nor espsase.
Remeiber this is free to all.

Why tgsra HpU.
In reply to the query, "Why do eggs
spoilV" American Cultivator says:
'Whenever a fertilaed -egg is raised
to a temperatnre of 93 degs. the batch
ing process begins, an I when tempera
ture falls mncn nolo at inis poini me
process ceases. ine cuuuuiuua
found in the warm days and cool nights
of summer. During he long, hot day
the hatching process U at work; during
the short, cool night it ceases. After
three or four altemntions 01 tmsianu
the embryo cliick 'di -s and the rotting
proceas begins. lt isevittennnai
if the eggs were not fc rtilized the hatch
ing would not begin. Neither would
the rotting, and h uie there would be
an absence of rotten c gs. 1 lie remeuy
therefore is to prevent fertUization of
the eircs. and this can be done by the de
struction of roosters, tvery rooster noi
intended especially fi r breeding should
be killed or sold to the huckster as soon
as big enough to cat. Not over one good
rooster should be kept on any farm, and
that one cooped an d in ted with not to ex
ceed ten hens, and tha eggs from those
hens should be kept or sola expressly ior
batching. The other hens should be
kept especially for ggs for market or
table use, and nor rot ster should eve be
allowed among tliem. -
