Charles Jackson, ex Indian fighter,
Bailor and soldier of fortune, was
found (load In bed at the county Infirm
ary lunt night. Jackson's life was
of the hectic variety. Into his brief ,
4't years of experirn: were crowded I
more fixcltrnj and stirring adventures I
ban ordinarily falls to the lot of a J
man of 90. Even his "going out" was
unusual. Jacknon had complained of
111 health for some Mme past and had I
been under the ca"-e of a physician, but
It was not suspected that his condl- j
t lorn was serious. Dropsy wag the ,
cause of death.
Charles Jackson, affectionately j
known to his many friends In Rock Is-
land as "Jack," was born on the high
seas. His father operated a long chain
of trading vessels, and It wa during !
one of these sea-going trips that j
"Jack" first saw the light of day. His !
Din' her died on a trading vossel, and '
was burled at sea. "Jack's" fath t
paused away when the son was scarce- ,
ly able to rtta'.lz what had occurrea, '
leaving the boy an orphan.

What a Beautiful Gown
and when e put it on over the wrong
corset, ichat a disappointment.
Had the Corset been a little lower in the
bust, a trifle longer from the waist line down,
and slightly looser at the belt, the whole effect
would have been elegant and distinguished.
The long lines and aristocratic beating of a
woman properly gowned and corseted, cannot
be secured by haphazard guess at a corset.
Go v.hete you can get the correct t'orset, and
be properly titled, so that each line and curve
of the figure will be set oiT to best advantage.
Ask almost any woman with a lithe, youthful
and distinguished carriage, what corset she
wears, and nine times out of ten she'll tell you
it's either a RFtilS. the C-B ALA SPIRITE.
KABO. REDFERX. ROYAL WORCESTER,
BOX TON, the T. X. or CAMILLE.
In order to bring all of these strict
ly corrct high class corsets promi
nently betore you, we make this re
markable proposition for MONDAY
AND TUESDAY NEXT; a rebate of
$1.00 or a hand back of $1.00 on $3.50
and $5.00 Corsets, in any of the above
..Read the list and pik one of these
most fashionable $3.60 corsets Tor
$2.r0 or the $5-00 corsets 'or $4.00,
either way it's just a dollar sved.
Note the name8, LA CAMILLE, the
P. N BON TON, ROYAL WORCES
TER, REDFERN, KABO, C B, ALA
SPIRITE or REGIS. Pick either and
get a dollar back.
It's time now for the new 1013 Spring Corset
and unless you have already been properly
corseted you are missing a whole lot o! genuine
corset comfort. The dollar hand back is wait
ing for you on Monday and Tuesday.
