A. circles, especially at the head office, a few days ago when he tendered his resignation to Major C. W. Hawes, bead clerk, to take effect May 1, when he accepts a responsible position in the Equitable Life of New York. Mr. Hickman has served as auditor under Major Hawes for six years, the last three of which he has held the head clerk's commission as special auditor for the society sad has de voted his entire time to tbe special auditing, handling difficult cases throughout the jurisdiction, his duties keeping him out on the road the great er portion of his time. Major Hawe'a recognized him to be an accountant of ability and a demon for work soon after he came to the office and freely acknowledges that his rapid advancement under him was due entirely to his ability and capac ity for work as weCl as his early mas tery of the details of tbe office system. His services hare been held in the highest regard by the other members of the executive council and while they regret the loss of his services they congratulate him on his advance ment and wisb him well in his new field. "In changing my field of endeavor, I do what may reasonably be expected of any man who has an ambition to advance and make good in any pro fession," said Mr. Hickman. "For years I have worked hard and faith fully in the interests of the society I have chosen to leave as an em ploye and my leaving its employ Is because of so dissatisfaction whatever with my employer or the treatment I have received at the hands of the society's management. At first bhvsh, it might appear that I have come to believe that fraternal insurance is a lost cause, while directly opposite is the case. I have always believed tn it and I do today. I have given years of study to its problems and I believe that the Modern Woodmen is the best fraternal beneficiary society in the worid. and for years I have advocated the idea tbat it would withstand for years to come any attack or opposi tion from wRhoct, but if it ever went down, it would do so as a result of quarrels and dissensions within its j ranks. I "My travels of the past two years I have forcibly strengthened me in this conviction. For more than a year I have been face to face with a slan- derous and vicious campaign against I our head officers, the very men who ' sought to save the society from ruin ' and its beneficiaries from disappoint- m-ent. 1 am well aware of the motives ! of those behind this campaign and re- sponsible for misrepresentations which : create a feeling of distrust among the membership, which no society can : long endure. j "Understand, this interview Is not to be considered as a swan song for I myself or anybody else, but I believe it paramorat that the society be saved and not hampered in its prog ress by such embarrassment, as de signing would-be fraternalists are thrusting upon it by misrepresenting its officers and heaping abuse uou thera. Even in our own city, in some quarter, the same condition is mani fest. Neighbor is arrayed against neighbor, friend against friend, in or der to humiliate one of the pioneers in the fraternal insurance field, our ovi head clerk, who would have be trayed the trust left to h,im by the membership and shirked his duty, hau he not told them the truth about mor tuary conditions existing in Vthe so ciety and what the future had in store for the members. 'It would appear to me that the time is at hand for all loyal Wood men to rally to the surport of the safe and sound business policy that will save the society and restore con fidence in it, regardless of the likes and personal ambitions of disturbers who aspire to dictate its policy or ruin the institution which even Rock Island would miss, were it io more. "Personally, I feti that It wou'd be the rankest business judgment on my own part to devote any more of the best years of my life (when better opportunities are offered) t6 a work in a field where the whims and fancies of purposely misinformed and misguid ed individuals create the unrest and distrast existing in the Modern Wofld meo of America today, at the same time jeopardizing the Interests of any one connected with the society, regard less of his qualifications, experience, or years of service rendered."

BY THE PRESIDENT Governor Clarke of Iowa has signed tbe bill requiring honesty in adver tisements, which was boosted by ths Associated Ad clubs of Iowa, and was J passed by both houses of the stata (legislature. s The bill requires that advertlse ;ments must mean what they say and no fakes can be given publicity by this means. , The Daren port Ad club worked hard for the passage of tbe bill and Its members are gratified to learn that.lt has become a law. It is designed to protect the honest advertiser. Honesty In Adbertising ' -MS ' Designed not so much to protect the honest adberttser as to protect the buying publio The houcst advertiser does not need this protection. We have always considered honest merchandise and honest advertising as absolutely necessary to the building up of a successful business. Only poor merchandise and service needs to be lied about Our advertising is intended merely to make known the facts about us and our goods. It's value to us depends upon its value to you; its purpose is to con- vince rather tnan to persuade. We alwavs aim to tell the truth about our store, our methods and our merchandise; there's no reason why we should do anything else; the truth is enough.

"If you want to know if good roads are a good thing ask a horse." "If the roads around a town are bad, it might as well be on an island." "Good roads will increase health, wealth, happiness, education, religion, morality, civilization and prosperity." "ln considering rids, remember that no town looks so good to the farmer that he will kill his horse to get there." "Good roads will decrease ignorance, poverty, discouragement, immorality, profanity, back taxes, sheriffs' sales and grouches," "Good roads have a moral, civic and educational value which cannot be measured in dollars and cents. Good schools cannot be reached un less we have good roads." "Good roads are a valuable trade mark for any community, and prove a blessing to the people who build them." "Was it in your township that some ignoramus pulled the sod into the middle of the road?" "Good roads will encourage the country folks to come to town, and will bring the city folks out in the country for fresh air." "The better the roads to a farmer's residence, the closer it brings his farm to town, thereby increasing the value of same." "A farm 10 miles from town on a hard road is nearer than a farm five mile6 to town on a soft rtl." "Did you hear this? The only way he could get to town was by tele phone." "Take care of the dirt roads, and the hard roads will come in time. I' is usually the case that the communi ty that will not attempt to improve and take care of a dirt road, will nev er take care of a hard road." "State and national aid for per manent roads is sure to come, but it is not likelv tn rfimn tn an v rnm- tn unity that has by its lack of interest in good roads shown that it is un worthy of same." "The best plan to assist In the im provement of the roads, is for every automobilist to carry a shovel in his car at all times, and use same oc casionally, instead of carrying a ham mer and using it continually. LIGHTS TO KEOKUK ARE SET BY GOVERNMENT BOAT All the government's river guide lights between Rock Island and Keo kuk have been put in trim by the Steamor Eleanor which arrived at this city Saturday of last week. A number of changes in location of the guides 'have been made and notice of these were sent out today to masters and pilots by the lighthouse depart ment's office in this city.

TO NATURAL COLOR i By Common Garden Sage a Simple Remedy for Dandruff, i Falling, Faded, "Grav H?irv The old idea of using Sage for dark ening the hair is again coming in vogue. Our grandmothers had dark, glossy hair at seventy-five, while our mothers are gray before they are fifty. Our grand mothers kept their hair soft and glossy with a "Sage Tea," which also restored the natural color. 4- , One objection to using such a prepar ation was the trouble of making it This objection has been overcome by the Wyeth Chemical Company of New York, who has placed on the market a superior preparation of Sage, combined with Sulphur and other valuable reme dies for dandruff, itching scalp, and thin, weak, falling hair. The beauty of the hair depends mors on its rich, even shading than anything else. Don't have dry, harsh faded hair, when a sizupla, harmless remedy will bring back the color in a few dsvs; and don't be tormented with dandruff, itch ing scalp ana loose, tailing bairs. Wyeth 's Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy will quickly correct these troubles, and give color, strength and beauty to your Eair.
