Beginning last Sunday the speed cops began to notice pronounced betterment '.. and conditions have been constantly . improving until during the busiest boors long strings of cars are- seen traveling in single file, and very few driv ers attempt to gain a lap by speed ing up to pass cars in front . The police say that pedestrians passing from one side of the street to another are thereby relieved of the necessity of twisting their necks in every direction in an ef fort to get a glimpse of cars coming in both directions as a safeguard from being run down.' , Police Chief Tom Cox eaid that before the campaign started there were more traffic violations in Rock Island than in any city ot which he knows. However, with the, situa tion under control the police do not expect any great trouble in main taining an enforcement of the rules. Only three men were fined by Magistrate D. J.

Waterman Company , from its beginning Trie world has always taken an un usual interest in inventors, probably be cause it recognizes that inventors, as a rule, are unselfish and that whatever re- - i ward they may gain through their inven tion has to be a by-product of a greater service or saving of time and labor to his millions of fellow men and women. Howe- invented the sewing machine, but the whole world enjoys the benefit of it. Likewise is the case with Morse and the telegraph; Bell and the telephone; Edison and the electric light; Fulton and the steamship. There is no use trying to arrange them in the order of their importance in the world to-day because to deprive us of any one of them, even for the briefest of periods, would amount to almost a calamity.

JYR Tonight Tomorrow Feel Right FRANK D. WATERMAN Lewis Edson Waterman and his inven tion, Waterman's Ideal Fountain Pen, to this list of world benefactors. The history of Waterman's Ideal Foun tain Pen has a peculiar personal interest for the people of Illinois because she can rightly claim Lewis Edson Waterman as one of her sons. !As a child, he came with his mother and younger brother and settled in Kan kakee and it was in the little old wagon shop, conducted by his brother.Elisha S. Waterman that the first model of Water man's Ideal Fountain Pen was turned out in wood. to better serve a constantly growing num ber of dealers and users in the middle west, and on Monday morning, May 10th, what will be known as the Waterman Building, at 127-129 South State Street. will be ready for occupancy. To meet the demand, the Company found it ncces sary to erect their own building, and on the property directly adjoining the old . Palmer rfouse, a modern, up-to-the-minute seven-story building will become the new Chicago home of the U E. Waterman Company, and add glory to the best traditions of this splendid old organization. The New.York service store of the L E. Waterman Company, at 191' Broadway, known as the Pen Corner throughout the world, has often been said to be one of the most artis tically correct and magnificent display rooms to.be found anywhere, but the - WATERMAN BUILDING. 129 SOUTH STATE STREET, CHICAGO name Waterman started as a man be came a pen and is now a world-wide your Hver goes on strike and you feel a sick headache and bilious pell coming" on, instead of prodding your liver with dangerous calomel and, lashing' your bowel with strong-, Irritating- purgatives, get out your bos f mild, gentle-acting NS TableU and take one right off.

Ground has been purchased in Newark, New Jersey, whereon the Company is about to build another great factory cov ering 500,000 square feet of operating space. In Chicago, the business was first established and carried on at a desk in the rear of the Congregational Book Store, on Wabash Avenue. After many years at that point, a new location was found over on State Street, at the present North American Building site. When FRED S. WATERMAN architects promise to" out-do even that last effort, and Chicago will have every 'reason to include this newest addition to its already long list of show places. With the upper floors devoted to stock and as sembling rooms, the Company will be better able to handle the great volume of middle-west business, and the new Water man Building is but another evidence of the keen judgment that anticipates con ditions and makes good the statement- satisfied customers everywhere. , Mr. Frank D. Waterman, President, and Mr. Fred S. 'Waterman, Secretary, of the L. E. Waterman Company, through combining their unusual abilities and mastery of 'detail, have given evi dence of what team-work can accomplish for after all is said, a man's business is . but the reflection of the man himself.
