IS A VERY U5USUAL MAN SAYS HE IS MOST SUCCESSFUL IN EVERY CITY HE VISITS. A rather interesting account of F. D. Haas, who is reported as about to visit Moline, was given last night by a gentleman who spent some time in Nashville during-Haas' recent visit to that city. . Mr. W. A. Howell, a traveling salesman, was talking in the lobby of the hotel and said: "I made Nashville during the last week of this man Haas stay In that city, and I was surprised at the amount of talk that went on about him. I heard it on every side in hotels, In street cars, on the streets and even the men I called on in a business way - had people into believing in him. "The papers were full of his doings and from what I heard he must have either a very remarkable medicine or else some peculiar power to win people into believing him. "I went around out of curiosity to the drugstore where his preparations were being sold, and I never saw anything like it in -my life. I stayed over a half-hour. During that time the crowd was positively packed in the place waiting to buy medicine. Every clerk in the store was busy wrapping up the Hass' preparations during the entire time I was there. I was told it was like this all day long. I heard that Haas had done everything but make the blind see and the lame walk, but I suppose it was largely due to exaggeration that these tales got abroad. T am In no position to say just how good his preparations are, but I do know that he seems to be a generous cuss and gave money to poor people hand over fist. "He Is an unusual man- and if he is as successful here as in other ..cities he has visited, you will see something interesting, as people seem to get crazy over him wherever he goes. "Whether Moline people will be as susceptible to the same sort of spell that this man seems to cant wherever he goes, remains to be seen.v SIX ARE ENLISTED III MEDAL CONTEST Moline Young People to Demonstrate Oratorical Ability in the First Baptist Church Tomorrow Evening.

LITTLE AND HAGERTY ON LONG AUTO TRIP War Correspondents Seeking to Break All Records Between New York . and San Francisco To Go Through Clinton " New York, Aug. 16. Richard H. Litt.e and Christian D. HageTty, the two war correspondents who are going to race in the "Buick" two-cylinder touring car from New York to San Francisco against the record, left Herald Square at 3 o'clock this morning. Norman De Vaux, who has twice crossed the continent, drove the car out of New York. His place will be taken byDrlver , Whipple at Albany who rn turn will give way to Driver Stevens at Rochester. , The car was scheduled to arrive at Buffalo at 1:30 a. m. Friday, at Cleveland at 10:30 a. m. Friday, at Toledo 4:30 p. m. Friday, and at Chicago Saturday. From this point the car goes directly across Illinois through Galena, De Kalb, Dixon, Sterling, and Morrison to Clinton, Iowa,' and from there on the "B" line to Omaha, passing through Cedar Rapids. From Omaha west the route will follow the Union Pacific and Southern Pacific to San Francisco. An effort will be made to break all transcontinental records. This trip was inspired by Yuan Shai Kai, Viceroy of Chili province, China, whom the correspondents met at Tien-Tsin during the Russian-Japanese war. On the strength of a strong friendship the viceroy instructed his secretary Fok Tong, to furnish information relative to the best make of automobile at a given price to be used by him for war purposes in his province. Messrs. Little and Hagerty discovered that the "Buick" closely adhers to the ideas of price and weight laid down by the viceroy and are making a transcontinental tour in that ma chine to verify their opinion. If the car stands the test they will recom mend it, and if not the trip will be re peated in another make of car. The correspondents will work- in relays though most of the time both will be in the car. Three chauffeurs will alternate at the wheel and two of them will at all times be in the car.

Fourth avenue is blocked from Twenty-third to Thirty-fourth street and this is the only avenue into the city from the east except those back on the bluff.

A smoker who started to light his pipe on the street turned to his companion and said: A man told me the "other day how to light an ordinary match in a high wind. Let me show you." There wag a stiff oreeze blowing. The demonstrator took from his pocket an envelope, struck a parlor match on a rail and shielded It Inside of the envelope, facing the wind as he did so. The Tjmtch burned with hardly a flicker, and the man who held It puffed on his pipe with great satisfaction. "That's a trick worth knowing," he remarked. "Here's another. Sometimes yon get a spark on top of your pipe which the most vigorous puffing fails to spread over the surface of the tobacco. In that case take a piece of paper of almost any kind and hold It down in the spark. This will spread the fire and give you the sort of light a pipe smoker wants." Providence Journal. Raking; Graas After Blowing. Some persons advise raking after each mowing. I do not, because the clippings drop down into the grass and form a mulch, which? I consider of great benefit. They also help to fertilize the soli. The lawn that Is not mowed often enough will not look well after you have been over It with the mower, because there was growth enough to partially hide- the sward upon 'which it falls. This will wither and turn browirln a day or two and greatly detract from the beauty of the lawn. But If yon keep'your lawn well mowed and that means going over it at least three times a week in ordinary seasonsthe amount clipped off at each, mowing will be bo slight that there will not be enough of it to show. Let the knife blades be set high erougli to leave at least two inches of he foliage.

This proposition was made to us on condition that Mr. Brittoa be given the nomination, but Mr. Britton himself declined it.
