THE ROCK ISUAND rAKGTT5. -FRIDAY. OCTOBl 10, 1913.
BEFORE THE LAW
Sock Island Man Will Not Ap.
pear Against Thief Must
Be in Church Is Plea.
' Rather than disobey the precept of
the Jewish religion, Ed Goldburg of
this city will make no effort to appear
against a man who Is now in Jail
charged with stealing from him ap
proximately 60 bushels of potatoes.
The trial has been set for tomorrow
morning, but Goldburg refuses to be
present, owing to the fact that tomor
row Is the Day of Atonement. The
Jews throughout the world will fast for
24 hours, and in addition will not drink
even so much as a drop of water.
"I muht be in church tomorrow
morning. Judge." said Goldturg, "and
I cannot be here." As a result, it is
possible that the case may be dis
missed. About 10 days ago, thieves drove up
to a car in the Burlington yards and
stole 19 sacks of potatoes, each sack
containing two and a half bushels.
Thee were loaded into a wagon.
George Gordon, an old offender, was
arrested for the crime, and his case
was continued until this morning.
When the case was called, it was
learned that it would be impossible to
go to trial as several witnesses were
absent Magistrate Smith then granted
a continuance until tomorrow.
Goldburg protested, but the Judge
contended that the prisoner had been
in Jail 10 days without trial and was
entitled to some rights.

Take a train ride through any Amer

the chaotic ugliness of the flitting

carelessness, ignorance, squalor, . bad

Philadelphia. Dee. . 1912. - In Decern,

everything that was recomaeaded, ar.d my
face got worse instead of better. I spent
over $100 and got no benefit. The face and
aaee were very red and the eruptioe, had
the appearance of small boils, which itched
me terribly. I cannot tell you how terrible
my face looked all I can say ia, it was
dreedfal. and I suffered beyond description,
" I ha sot gone oa the street any time
since 1908 without a veil, until now. Just
four months ago a friend persuaded me to
giv Eeeinol s trial. I have need three
cakes of Reeinol Soap and less than a jar of

free front any eruption, and my akin is as

FATHER GREAT PIPE.
Eccentric Will of the Famous Dutch
Smoker, Von Klaea.
In "Holland of the Dutch" Demet
rius Boulger tells the story of the fa
mous Van Klaes of Rotterdam, who
was known as "Father Great Pipe."
Van Klaes smoked about half a
pound of tobacco a day and to save
himself trouble used an enormous pipe,
bene his nickname. ITe built a man
sion In Rotterdam, with a fortune
amassed !c the Indies, and turned it
into a museum for pipes and antique
instruments used by priieltlve man for
burning hemp or weeds long before the
discovery of tobacco. No man who
visited his curios went away without
a gift of choice cigars. He lived to be
ninety-eight and made, while smok
ing, an eccentric will, which began by
inviting all smokers In the country to

coffin was to be lined with the wood
of his old cigar boxes, and beside
him were to be placed his favorite

of matches, for. as the will senten

Movies for Safety Purposes
UNIQUE PLAN OF THE ROCK ISLAND.
O wad some power the glf ie gie us.
To see ourselves as others-see .us.
It wad frae monie a blunder free us.
And foolish notion. " .
Thomas A. Edison appears In the
role of the Giftie and the Rock Island
rai'road. through its "Safety Firs"
movement, is making practical appli
cation 'of the mirror. It was Eiison
who first caKed attention to the edu-!
cation al value of the "movies." It re
mained for a big railroad corporation
to follow Ws sugges'Jon and test their
value in a life saving campaign.
L. F.. Shedd of Chicago,- general
safety supervisor for the company, is
giving moving picture shows to edu
cate trainmen by showing them their
own shortcomings. The men who
posed for the- pictures did dangerous
stunts from the every "day experience
of traiMsen. Seated before t!ie
movies, other trainmen loudly crltisis
ed the moving pic ure a-'ors, indicat
ing that. In thecrv at least, there waa
no question about the right way to do
a thing, although doing it the wrong
way has been more or lesg common.
An hour's lecture every day would
net, in a year, accomplish as much
for the protection of life and limb as
the pictures do with one showing. In
Bobby Bums' day there- were no
"movies' to mirror our "blunders" and
"foolish notions," but Edison has made
that possible and the force of this has
never been so clearly emphasized as
in the remarks of trainmen after view
ing the pictures.
"If that's the way it looks to others
we'll s'ick to the right way here
after is the general comment.
Tae "Safe-y First" campaign Is
based on the assntrptjon that the safe
way pays in the long run, even if It
takes more time. , ' ;
The public attends these moving
pk-turj exhibitions because the nntv
He's benefit Is the first consideration.
In order to protect the traveler, every
trainman must . be educated in tha
value of safety to himself and wheu
he properly takes care of his own wel
fare he will, consaiouily or uncon
sciously, take better care of the pas
senger.. ' - - v
