COMMITTEE NOT CONSULTED IN THE CONVENTION CALL The Democratic Congressional Situa tion and Secretary Compton's Position. The conjecture that the congression al committee was not consulted in the matter of the issuing of the call for the democratic convention at Moline, Sept. :10, as appearing in yesterday morning's L'nion is sustained by the following telegram which came to The Argus office this afternoon from W. A. Compton. of the committee, In re sixmse to an inquiry concerning the matter: Macomb. 111.. Sept. 2::. Editor Ar gus: I received a letter from Looney Tuesday saying the state committee had directed him to call the congres sional convention this week or next ami asking if it would be satisfactory with me. I replied that he could call it at such time and place as he desired so far as I was concerned, supposing that he as chairman, would obtain the consent of the entire committee before he issued the call for the convention. Upon receipt of a telegram from t In state committee Wednesday, I imme diately wired him to call a meeting of the congressional committee bu have not received the call for either. I am not an officer of the committee and know nothing further about it. V. A. COMPTON. In the light of this phase of the sit uation, the democrats will await the action of Chairman Looney relative to Mr. Compton's advice. that the committee be called together to de termine the time and place of holding the congressional convention, together withthc fixing of the basis of represen tation. The democrats of Rock Island are perfectly willing to abide by the action of the congressional committee, or to attend a convention where the assurance is offered that the members of the committee are to be on hand to see that fair play is given and that the convention is not permitted to de generate into the farce of a one-man affair.

COOKING AND COQUETRY ALSO Two Years to Become Masters of All the Arts That Are Taught There. "Money refunded if husband ob jects." This is the most alluring of the in ducements offered by the American Training school, a college in Chicago, where a girl possessing only her phys ical attractions may enter and come forth a woman educated in all the arts that are supposed to retain the affections of a man. "Follow our directions and you will not be named as an incompetent wife in a divorce bill," is another of the allurements offered to those who enter the school. 9ti: West Harrison street. Vnllii il Marriage Selionl. "Be a helpmate instead of a drag upon the man who marries you." is the motto of this strange school, the only one of its kind in Chicago. It opened yesterday, and a score of girls, all eager to learn how to please a man, were present. They came from Chi cago and the neighboring cities. Miss Rose Schweitzer is the super intendent and the idea is hers. She formerly lived in Canada, but she got the imnression that she could be of service to the girls of Chicago and she came. "The idea is to teach a girl how to care for ahoir.e." said Miss Schweitz er. "You know there are girls who are attractive enough to become the mistresses of a home who do not know enough to retain their power." Miss Schweitzer certainly has gone about teaching tneni in a practical sort of way. The school isn't located iti a business block. Si-lniul In I.Ike n Heme. "I chose a building that could be converted into a typical American home." and she pointed to the two story frame building which stands on the corner. "All the problems that will face these girls when they be come mistresses or tneir own nomes will face them here." The studies for the day begin with the rising bell. The girls are taught to dress themselves neatly in the morning. Wrappers are barred and soiled shirt waists will. not be tolera ted. "She i.s wise who appeals to her hus band through his taste. But she is doubly wise who appeals through his taste and his sight," i.s one of the rules that hung in every room: The next study is tin; preparing of breakfast. The girls alternate and the professor of domestic science is the instructor. Food is prepared in a scientific way. The remainder of the pupils offer suggestions when it reach es the table. Then comes physical cut lure. I (entity nn Olijeet. "Retain your beauty," is another rule that is suspended on the wall. Accord ingly after breakfast comes a short lesson in art. China painting is one of the accomplishments that are taught the girls. Then comes music. "Every wife should know how to play and sing. Music can be made to take the place of the club," is one of the beliefs. The preparation of luncheon is in trusted to another girl. She is also under the direction of the professor of domestic science. Then comes a les son in caring for the sick. "Many pa tients have fallen in love with their nurses. All men enjoy being well nursed," is the claim of the instructor who teaches them how to care for the sick. Religion also has a place in this home. The instructor believes that every husband should be religious. K is their opinion that more husbands would be religious if their wives were able to place religion bt fore them in an interesting way. So the history of religion and of the various creeds is taught the girls. Cn Up MlNMioniirifM. "And then some of them may not marry. Some of them may wish to make the saving of souls their life work. They will be prepared when they Uave this school." said the in structor. Sewing is another art that receives much attention. "Some of them may be unable to have another do it. Then it is well for every girl to know liow to sew." is the argument of the instruc tor of the needle. It requires two years to become mis tress of the arts taught at the school.

If people of Rock Island county find that honey is a scarce article the com ing winter, and that th- price is high er, they must blame the low tempera ture that has prevailed during the en tire year, is a statement made by a member of the Western Illinois Bee Keepers' association, which held its meeting at Galesburg this week. In fact, according to the gathering, honey is not one-third a crop this year, and the likelihood is that the price will be advanced. This shortage is due to the fact that in order to form nectar, the flower needs warm weather and rain, and without this combination there will be little nectar and without nec tar in the flower tiure will be but lit tle honey, for it's from the nectar that the Lees make the honey.
