"Capitol to Open Seanonr "The season officially opened here when the ferry Davenport plying between Rock Island and Daven port resumed operations the middle of March," said Mr. Lamont. "but the excursion season will not open until the middle of May. It will probably be opened by the new steamer Capitol owned by the Strecktus lines. The St Paul and the J. S., favorite excursion boats of former seasons, will be seen very little on this part of the river as they are now engaged for the great er part of the season in St. Louis. Another friend of Rock Island ex cursionists, the steamer Sidney, will be missed here this season s she has been sent to New Orleans for the summer month. The Ma jestic and the 3. W.

IV- Why the waters re greatest write ally the greatest stories REALLY great writers, the only writers whose novels and stories' are worth while, give us the result of their powers of observation,-and their talent . for self-expression, through the .medium of fiction, with a real background a real purpose. That is the kind of novels and stories in this month's Cosmopolitan. We give you a glimpse of d few of them here. Fannie Hurst A in "Star Dust," now appearing in Cosmopolitan, one of America's foremost woman writers tells of the futility of marriage without love. John Galsworthy . in his latest novel "In Chan6ery,M England's most distinguished novelist writes for Cosmopolitan a story of the love and the desire of middle age. ' Peter B. Kyne in "Kindred of the Dut," one of America's most popular novelists is telling the readers of Cosmopolitan a wonderful story about the fierce passion of youthful hearts. Rupert Hughes whimsically portrays the harrowed feel ings of a girl who thought her fiance un faithful. Of course he' was innocent. " But it wasn't until they saw "The Animal That -Laughs," that all was forgiven. , Frank R. Adams gives his version of what might occur if ' you visited the home of a former sweetheart and found her husband beating her. A situ- ' ation fortunately rare and strikingly unusual. Read about it in "Until Tomorrow." Gouverneur Morris tells how he thinks men will act if, under Bolshevik rule, our women should become public property. "Bill the Boob" isn't the first man who had no sense until a woman knocked it into him. This story is a thriller! Dana Gatlin explains what she tlfinks would tajce place between a betrayed husband and his be trayer when the husband is stricken with appendicitis and there is no one to operate on him but "The Other Man." When you read the story youll agree that men occasionally sacrifice themselves. Harris Dickson simply tells us another Old Reliable story a delightful yarn about a couple of crooks, a postponed parade and a badly sold colored . gentleman who had the best intentions and very little else. "Sticky Fingers" is an amusing story. - WiU Payne again presenting Ben Bodet, business detec tive, tells another one of those fine mystery talks that keep one guessing from start to finish. This is a brand new type of sleuth story, and most fascinating. Thomas Burke writing of the love of San-li-po for Wing Dee, tells how Lee Yip brought the youth home with him and how San-li-po knew at once that she loved him. It is another startling Limehouse story and h is called "Scarlet Shoes." ' ' Edgar A. Guest Anyone who has ever sat around a roaring grate fire and let his imagination run riot will appreciate Edgar A. Guest's poem "The Grate Fire" in the current Cosmopolitan. Dreams that come true- Dreams reveal the veiled working of our inner minds. They can be in terpreted, and through them can be traced the source of many human ills. In his latest Secret Springs article in the new Cosmopolitan, Harvey O'Higgins cites many peculiar dreams and with the help of Doctor X analyses them. He draws surprising conclusions.
