EVERY FOND MOTHER
is anxious to have her son nicely clothed the year
around. But especially is she desirous of having
him comfortably dressed when the autumnal tints
announce the close approach of winter. The
Daily Argus has determined to relieve the solici
tude of some one mother in Rock Island regard-
.. i r i
ing trie wearing apparei oi ner Mm
for the coming cold weather. But
he who wears the clothes must
win them. This is the way he
can secure them: By soliciting
subscribers for The Daily Argus.
To the boy who brings to this
office prior to November 1st, 1892,

pended subscription order blanks,

On the first of November a new order
of large interest will go into effect on the
Rock Island road. From that date for
ward no stop-over privileges will be
sold with tickets of any kind. People
who desire to make a journey with a
visit in the middle of it will be compelled
then to buy two tickets. AH tickets af
ter that day will be stamped by the agents
as good for the day of sale only, and all
Rock Island coupons will be similarly
stamped. Nothing is said to that effect
in the official orders covering this point,
but it is peifectly clear that the prime
object of this change is to cut off the
sale of scalpers' tickets. They have
b?en doing a good business and the pas
senger department of the road has deter
mined to check it if possible. The or
ders will make some difference to the
traveler, causing him to make perhaps
several purchases of tickets when one
would answer the purpose otherwise, but
the road has good reason to take the ac
tion it has. Now it will be interesting
to see the scalpers get around it.
The change in the time of the departure
of the afternoon train on the Milwaukee
will prove an advantage to Rock Island,
and would be better if it left an hour la

Milwaukee are appreciated by the people
of Rock Island, not only because it is a
becefit to our suburban trade, but be
cause it gives Rock Island a chance to see
