At yesterday afternoon's meeting
of the board of supervisors the usual
preliminaries for getting the work
under way were gone through with,
and other minor matters attended to.
The rules for governing the board
were adopted the same as last year,
a resolution being offered by Super
visor Cralle to change the time for
getting bills before the board, but it
was lost. On motion of Supervisor
Ford, the board appointed M. A.
Gould, of South Moline, to look after
the burial of old soldiers, to take the
place of Mr. Dewrose, who has re
moved from that place. On motion
of Supervisor Vinton, the chair ap
pointed a committee composed of
Supervisors Vinton. Schneider and
Armstrong to solicit bids from the
different newspapers in Rock Island
and Moline for publisning mc
cial proceedings of the board,
board then adjourned until
morning at 9 o'clock.

The police patrol wagon made sev
eral trips to the Rock Island yards,
at the foot of Thirty-eighth street,
yesterday afternoon in response to
telegraphic messages of the miscon

congregated there and were making
merry over a keg of beer. The po
lice found about 40 of the tourists
gathered there, but upon the ap
proach of the police they scattered.
The police captured a load of them
with half a keg of beer and then
went back and got another load. In
the entire crowd but 50 cents could
be found and half of that was a
Canadian quarter. Five of the
toughest of the lot are being tried
under the vagrancy law this after
noon. Their names are: James
Read, George Adams, Frank Murray,
James Murphy and John Chambers.
Don't Trifle With tne Teeth
If our teeth were renewed as are
our nails, they might not need con

themselves after childhood. The
proper thing to do is to use Sozodont,
which preserves their health and
beauty. It never fails.

In spite of the miserable weather our opening last Saturday
proved a marvelous success; everyone seemed delighted with the nev
store, the new styles, and of course our always existing Low Prices
It was equally gratifying to us to again greet our many friends and note so many who had actually
inconvenienced themselves in order to favor us by awaiting the opening of our New Clothing
Store. The only regret we have is that we were unable to serve all owing to the big rush. We
have therefore decided to continue the
in order that everyone may have an equal opportunity to snpply themselves with a handsome
spring outfit at a nominal cost.
