OF CLUB TUESDAY
The general membership meeting of
the Rock island club will occur Tues
day evening at the club rooms. Com
plete plans for the affair are to be ar
ranged tonight at a meeting of the di
rectors of the organization. Tentative
plans call for the meeting of the club
members, the serving of a supper or
buffet luncheon and an evening of en
tertainment. A professional enter
tainer from Chicago has been secured
by the entertainment committee and
to him will be entrusted the task of
providing amusement for the occasion.
In addition to the lunch and enter
tainment features, the meeting will
have a business side. The new set of
by-laws recently adopted by the direc
tors will come up for ratification by
the membership and there will be oth
er business to transact.

NEW BALL LEAGUE
TO BE FORMED?
Half a doaen battle-scarred veterans
representing Cedar Rapids, Clinton,
Waterloo and Moltne dropped Into
town late this afternoon and. accom
panied by two or three Rock Island
ers, went Into session at the New
Harper. The presence of William
Ewald of Waterloo and Belden Hill of
Cdar Rapids suggested that baseball
was the topic under consideration, but
this surmise was throttled In infancy
by T. O. Van Galder, who averred, that
the meeting was for the purpose of ar
ranging a series of county fairs. It
was also denied that the session bore
any relation to the coming meeting of
the Three-Eye league In Chicago next
week. "We have all been in the Three-

taken at this time.

FOUR VICTIMS ARE FOUND
TO HAVE BEEN MURDERED
Quincy, 111., Oct. 3. The coroner's
investigation of the murder Charles
Pfanschmidt, wife and daughter and
Miss Emma Keampen. a school teach
er, at the Pfanschmldt country home
near this city last Friday failed to
bring about any new developments.

How Watches Vary.
Theoretically, says a Jeweler, the
best watches of today are perfect, but
actually they both gain and lose time
every day. Even if the good watch
does not vary one second at the end
of the twenty-four hours, the expert
insists, it has both gained and lost in
that time. If It Is wound in the morn
ing it runs fast and toward the next
morning runs slow, thus equalizing
the time. He says the best watches
should be wound twice a day and then
at only two-thirds of the capacity of
the mainspring, thus preventing either
binding or extremes of strong or weak
ened spring. The balance wheel was
expected to equalize differences of
mainspring tension, but really this is
not the case to what is called perfec
tion. New York Press.
Boston's Wintar and Summer.
Nearly all visitors to Boston, if they
do not see it, are told of the place
where one may "step from Winter into
Summer or from Summer into Winter
at any time of the year without giving
a thought to his clothing." This may
be done at the point where Washing
ton street intersects the street wblcb
Is "Winter" on one side and "Summer
on the other. A guide was enlarging
on this bit of humor to a visitor from
New York a few days ago, but was
not rewarded by the smile which the
Winter and Summer joke usually calls
forth. "That's nothing," said the New
Yorker, "but what Is really funny here
