THE ROCK ISLAM) ARGUS, TUESDAY, AUGUST 2, 1910.
Board of Directors Decides
That Institution Can Not
Care for Them.
HAS NOT THE FACILITIES
Older Children Are Preferable Until
Such Time as Provision Is
Made for Infants.
The monthly meeting of the board
of directors of Bethany home was
held at the New Harper in this city
last evening and matters of consid
erable importance came up for con
sideration. The need for enlarged
quarters at the home to provide an
isolation room, a room for boys, and
a room for babies is recognized by
the board and it was proposed that
a house be bought and removed to
the Bethany home grounds, but this
was overruled and the building pro
ject was again placed in the fore
ground, although nothing definite
was done in regard to it.

A Quick Acting
While WAKEFIELD'S BLACKBER
RY BALSAM is a very quick acting
and positive cure for diarrhoea, dys
entery, cholera infantum and other
loose "bowel troubles, it acts so in
harmony with tha whole system that
it brings about a complete cure with
absolutely no constipation nor bad
It contains no pr.ium nor any of the
dangerous drugs that make other
diarrhcea remedies so objectionable.
BALSAM is harmless to the most del
teat stomach and can be given to
children with perfect safety.
Every dru store sells it with a
guarantee to cure or your money re
funded. Thirty-five cents per bottle or three
it's best to get three bottles. It will
k-"ep and may be needed some night
when you have a "sudden attack."
many occasions the society has had
to choose between admitting Infants
to the home or taking charge of chil
dren several years old, the matter
was brought up at last evening's
meeting and it was decided that the
children over a year old should have
The donations for the month were
as follows: Mrs. H. B. Sudlow, Rock
Island. 52 yards sheeting; Mrs. W.
H. Gest, rug; house committee, two
bushels peaches; Larson & Larson,
grocers, Rock Island, fruit and veg
etables; Mrs. C. L. Eihl, Rock Isl
and, clothing; Help chapel, Moline,
books and papers. Elizabeth Sharpe,
Catherine Marshall and Anna Taylor,
proceeds from lemonade stand, $3.22,
for the building fund.
Time and again there are instances
where it is sought to have infants of
a few months, or even weeks of age,
placed in the home, and at the same
time there are boys and girls above
the age of a year for whom a place
must be founC. -vV'Iilcn snail be ad
mitted, when there is not enough
room for all? It was pointed out
that a baby of a few weeks or months
of age needs the i-are more urgently
than a child of a few years of age;
also that it is more dilllcult to find a
place for a mere baby, unless the
parents completely surrender the
child for all time, than it is for a
child who can be of some help to it
self, and even some help in the home
in which it may be placed by the
Bethany management. On the other
hard it was asserted that the more
tender the child, the more room is
needed, and the more help required,
and that the board is not in condition
to give these now. Also that Bethany
homo aims to give moral training
to its wards, and that therefore they
can do more good to the child of a
few years than to a mere baby whese
only wants are to the physical nature.
Dolns Excellent Mork.
After considerable discussion of
the question the following resolution
was unanimously passed: "It is im
practicable under present conditions
of the home to take care of children
under one year of age, and it is left
to the management to decide whether
any such shall be admitted. But as
soon as pcssible the home will be en
larged to accommodate all nges of
children." In the meantime Matron
Smith is doing a most noble work,
taking care of children, much of the
time giving up her own room for the
use of the children cr other em
ployes, and Superintendent Jahns re
ported that in no instance had a
prcper case been presented to him,
but that it received all necessary as
sistance, either at the home or a
place was found outside the home for
it, all reports to the contrary not
withstanding. Report of Matron.
The matron's report showed that
there are 31 now in tbe home, 17" of
them being boys, the average age be
ing about 7 years. Three were
placed in homes and three returned
to their parents during the month.
There was one case of sickness and
one doctor's visit. '

HAS NEW OFFICER
Man to Be Designated as "Gun
Pointer" Is Added to the
Roster of Navals.
WILL RANK WITH PETTI ES
GetsVosition as Result of Skill in
Aiming Rifle New Sighting
Device to Be Used.
A new petty officer has been added
to the roll of the local division of
naval reserves as the result of a gen
eral order from the navy department
of the government. He will be known
as the "gun pointer," and his fitness
for the task of aiming the rifle of the
division will be his one and only rec
ommendation for the position. Most
of the officers in the naval reserves
are either elective or appointive, but
that of gun pointer will be the result
of competitive aiming tests. The naval
reserves are allowed one gun pointer
for every 25 men, and that means that
the local division will have but one, as
the roster is a number shy of half a
hundred, which would allow two. Thus
far no one has announced himself as a
candidate for the office, but it is ex
pected that there will be a number of
them, as the position is one of small
honor and in the regular service it
commands more pay from the govern
ment than that of the ordinary seaman.

KEITHSBURG BRIDGE HAS ONLY
DRAW OF KIND IN WORLD
The new Iowa Central bridge across
vhe Mississippi river was completed
at Keithsburg July 20. This bridge
has the distinction of being the only
one in the world to use the kind of
diaw which is employed. This draw
lifts up in a horizontal position, con
trolled by powerful engines and bal
ence weig'its instead of turning on its
center or tilting up from either end or
the center, as is the usual method.
The draw span is 220 feet 10 inches in
length, and in addition to this there
ere nine fixed spans, each 200 feet
!org, and an Illinois shore span 114
feet 10 inches, and an Iowa spaa 100 ;
feet, making a total of 2.313 feet 20
inches, with twice the weight of the
old bridge, which is now being rapidly
torn down. The bridge is so strong
thai the heaviest freight trains Can
safely cross it.
The work was begun Nov. 10, 190S,
by the Union Bridge & Construction
company of Kansas City, Mo. This is
considered a piece of workmanship
worthy of the greatest admiration,
showing a great triumph in engineer
ing skill. The draw works so perfectly
that it requires only one minute and
ten seconds to raise it or lower it high
enough to admit the passage of the
largest vessels in perfect safety.
who Is to hold the position, the shoot
ing will be done w'ithout ammunition.
The division has been furnished with
a new style sighting rifle which makes
this apparent impossibility an easy
matter. The rifle is placed in such a
way that when it moves, an indicator
at another part of the equipment,
where it can not be seen by the aimer,
shows exactly where the rifle is aimed.
When the trigger is pulled, the second
indicator records on a small 'target, the
place where a bullet fired from the
gun would have struck the larger tar
get, and tbe result is that no ammuni
tion Is necessary in order to hold rifle
practice and competition. The tests
for the position In the local division
will be held as soon as the weather
becomes cool enough to permit the use
of Armory hall.
PHONE EMPLOYES PICNIC

the neighborhood of 800 picnickers

short handed as possible for the day
