' One lid club has been put out o£ business, or knocked out of a location, at least, without the aid of the law. 'All that was necessary was for the sheriff to tell the manager to get out. It happened, however that the club WPS located on private ground w i t h o u t *ny previous arrangement having teen made with the owner. TWO ROWS OF CORN. Pete Sheeney has been r u n n i n g i club just across the river from the Country club, and up the r i v e r from the M a f f i t bridge. The location was ideal, the surroundings picturesQue and conditions all that could be- desiied. Of course a route to the club was needed, but this was easily arranged by liuylng two rows of corn from the ten- n n t on the farm. During the four or five weeks the club has been in operation those two rows of corn have "been converted into as well worn a roadway as can be" found fn any lane Jn Decatur township. __ UNDER T'JV'O TENTS. Two good sized tents furnished al! the shelter needed. There was a ".mat landing, with a number of row boats and a couple of steam launches moored near by. Everything went along emoothly until the owner of the land (began getting complaints from people who lived in the neighborhood. He called up the tenant and told him to order the club manager to get off the premises. The tenant promised to do EO. ORDERED TO VACATE. Taree weeks later the club was still there, so last Sunday Sheriff Nicholson and some of the city policemen drove out to the club- in the patrol wacrnn and the sheriff ordered the manager to vacate, and this he promised to do Just where the club w:ll be located is not known. CLUB INCORPORATED. Another Decatur lid club was incorporated at Springfield Wednesday. It is to be known as the "Broadwav club" an* it is organiiecl for "social' purposes. The ircorporators are Charles S. Burke. Edward Burke and M. H. Brown. LEE BOLAND IN JACK'S OFFICE Place ot AV. K. \Vliltflelrt Who In now on Bench. Attorney Lee Boland has moved his office to the office of T. B. Jack and W. K. 'Whitfieia in the Citizens building.

A popular evening's entertainment was given by the Decatur Bridgre comp a n y Tuesday evening on the site of the Powers opera house, the performance a t t r a c t i n g a ring of spectators which encircled the block. The en- t e r t a i n m e n t consisted of the erection of a new derrick on top of the steel M r u c t u r e o£ the new building. WORKMAN AT TOP. The vertical leg of the derrick, some t h i r t y feet high, was set up first. A V, orkman then scaled this to the top and occupied the ticklish apex while ilie other legs were being set up and bolted to it. It was nice work assembling th* 3 parts of a derrick at t h a t dizzy height, but it is a part of the game of the steel worker. "Pick a hair, Billy." the man on top shouted to the one in charge of the h o i s t i n g engine, meaning that he should hoist the lo.ig steel girder a hair's b r e a d t h so that bolt holes would match. Perhaps he had in .mind a very coa.rse h a i r , but the e n g i n e e r seemed to understand exactly what he meant. The job lasted u n t i l after the town clock struck S before it was in condition to bc l £ f t for the night. The t h i r d der- rir'k will handle the s t r u c t u r a l members for the eaot side of the building. People You Know Mrs. E L, Reeves of Decatur has gone to M u d l a v i a . Ir-1 Jlrs.

Lonesome for Her Little Brother in Chicago. M!s» Patricia Hunt, who is entertaining one of thj little "fresh air" girls from Chicago, who arrived Tuesday afternoon. This. little girl cried as though her heart would break Tuesday evening because she was lonesome for her little brother, who has cancer and whom she has nursed all ·winter. WEARING MANY CLOTHES. In trying to comfbrt the child, Miss H u n t found that she was wearing two pairs of stockings, two pVticoats, heavy underwear and other unnecessary garments, and she was nearly sick from the heat they caused. When the clothes were taken off, dhe cried harder than ever because she was afraid everything she did not actually wear would be stolen. It took some real diplomacy to assure her that her clothing would be safe. BECOME ACQUAINTED. Other children have already thrown off their constraint and become reacquainted wi'th little friends in the neighborhood who played with them last year. They are busy today with every kind of task. Some aro making Kites, some arranging for doll parties in the yard, a.nd others going about t h e important business of vacation time. For the most part they are very happy, and all of them are clean, contrary to the expectations of a few people who took them in this year for the first time. A trial with the children is all that is needed in the case of most Decatur people to convince them of the real pleasure in watching the pinched little people eat and enjoy themselves. Many are contemplating sending for children to come down to tnem and most of those who took the first consignment Tuesday have feceived many calls from people asking to take the little guests for a time.

Water St. The Greatest ·\ Surprise in Many Years THESE FARMERS AFRAID OF RAIN I Bloomington Pantagraph: The wheat yield near Leroy has been good this year, ranging from 25 to 40 bushels to the .--re, in general. The largest j ield reported was the crop of Kami-nine, whose f a r m .loins the west corporation line of Leroy. . His wheat made 4 2 % bushels to the acre and was of good quality. Now that the wheat crop is harvested, farmers are cutting hay and oats. The oats look as if there would be a f a i r yield. Some of the farmers are hurrying to set their wheat straw baled. For fear that a rain will spoil the straw, every effort Is being made to get It under cover. It should-be of extra good quality this year and there is a great deal of it.
