AN UNUSUALLY PLEASANT EVENT.
The Roflmi of the Council Thrown Open
and a I.arjfe Number Amwuihle to Knjoy a
Snlenclld I'rotrramjne and Feast Several
If ours of Sociability and Dancing.
The banquet and entertainment given
by Arsenal Council N . 171, National
Union, at its rooms in the Armory build
ing last niht was very largely attended
and Droved the members of the council
to be royal enterttiners.
After the guests had assembled the en
tertainment was opened with an overture
by Bleuer's orchestra. Acting President
H. D Mack made a short address of
welcome, extending to the guests the
hoooitalitv of the evening, which was
followed by a weil rendered selection by
the Moline Mandolin club. "A Summer
Night," a vocal solo, was then charmingly
rendered by Miss Anna Parker, of Mus
catine, which was followed by a zither
duct by Louis Silberstein and Theodore
Miekley of Davenport. A ladies' trio
composed of Mrs. F. W Merrell and the
Misses Lucy Coyne and Clara Hampton,
then sang "Distant Chimes, which was
artistically rendered. At the conclusion
of this L C. Blanding was introduced
and in a brief address set forth the ad
vantages of life insurance and illustrated
the superiority of being allied with tne
National Union, beoides ths advantages
it possessed in a social way.
Next came the Arion club, composed
of Frank C .ilins. S. J. Collins. S. W
Searle, J. A. Johnson and J. E Blake
more, which sing. "Where Would I
Be?" A cornet solo by Frantt Wood
yatt followed this, arter which Miss Par

ponded with "When the Wild Flowers
B'ojm." A vocal solo by Mr. Blake
mnr wis next in order, which was fol
lowed by another selection by the Ar
ion. The latter closing the programme.
President Mack invited the assembled
gue.sts into the spacious dining room
where the btcquet board had been sump
i uou-.ly spread, and was enjoyed, while
the Mamhl;n club discoursed some de
lightful music. After tbe banquet was
over those so inclined repaired to Armory
hall, where a social dance was indulged
ia for several hours. Oa the whole it
was a very pleasant affair, and will long

Married Women in the tVent.
The western married man has no stand
ing in society except by his wife's side.
The men who "run" the towns are seldom
seen at the parties, which are managed by
their unmarried clerks. In the old courtly
days a man and wife had a social indi
viduality; but when a man attends a social
gathering in the west he is expected to seat
himself beside his wife und behave as well
as he can, to the end that people may
understand that he is not only fond of the
worthy woman at home, but in company
If a married man should attend a west
ern social affair without his wife he would
be very apt to be approached by a married
woman who would ask him in an audible
whisper, "Where is your wife?" andjthere
would be a certain something in the wom
an's tone indicating that he ought to be
ashamed of himself for being there under
such circumstances. I once knew a pay
young husband to exhibit a paper, signed
by his wife, to the effect that he was at the
party alone with her knowledge and con
sent. E. W. Howe iu Forum.

The Saltan's Poisoner.
Among the Turks the usual method,
both of trying and punishing a poisoner, is
to make him drink his own concoction, it
any can be found. Otherwise the accused
is half strangled or beaten into a confes
sion. A poisoner who survives the pre
liminary ordeals, but is convicted never
theless, is tortured to death by being
spread eagled in the heat of the sun. It
is said that up to a recent period the sul
tan's list of palace employees included a
Turkish doctor, expert in poisons, whose
duties were not coutiued to attending the
sick and tasting the sultan's food. It has
been known in Constantinople that the
skill of the sultan's oisou expert was
called into service whenever his master
wished to get rid of some one who had of
fended but who had been leuilty of no open
violation of the sultan's wishes or decrees.
The present sultan. Abdul Hamid, among
other reforms, has dispensed with the court
poisoner. Pittsburg Leader.
"When Edison' wa Young-.
"I see that Thomas Edison is now rated
at $3,000,000," said S. J. House, who is
spending a few dayB at the Laclede. "I
knew Tom when he was a barefoot boy
living at Fort Gratiot, Alien. He was al
ways tinkering with telegraphy, and one
rigged up a line from his home to mine, a
block away. I could not receive very well
and sometimes I would come out, climb on
the fence and halloo over to know what ha
said. That always angered him; he seemed
to take it as a reflection upon his telegraph
line." St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

NOT HOW CHEAP BUT HOW GOOD!
Nowadays Darents buying Boys' Clothing: make an effort to get good goods not cheap, shoddy stuff.
Shoddy goods are high at a low price; agood article at a low price is what you want, and that is just what the
8 W $
Are now prepared to show you. We have always made it a special feature to carry good goods only, and
while we have been successful in this direction we have never been in a position to show such an exceeding)'
choice, perfect-fitting and superior made and trimmed line ot
as at present. An exceptionally choice line of novelties, positively a handsomer and larger line than ever at
correct prices, in fact better made, better trimmed and better fitting goods at lower price than you would
have to pay for infearior goods elsewhere.
Comparison is convincing. May we have an opportunity of satisfying you as to the truthfulness of the
Headquarter for Boys' and Children's Wearing Apparel.
