Friends of Robert E. Peacock, president, C. D. Peacock, Inc., will be pleased to learn that he has successfully recovered from a very severe operation. Mr. Peacock is able to spend a short time at the office occasionally, but does not expect to be able to attend strictly to business for several months.

An interesting engineering operation is now in progress at State and Adams Streets, Chicago. The upper three stories of the building at the northeast corner, which will be occupied by C. D. Peacock and Lapp & Flersheim, have been raised bodily on jackscrews and timbers, and a ground story and foundation will be built below. According to the contract, the work is to be done in eighteen days from the time of beginning. Four hundred men, working day and night, 8.000 jackscrews and 8,000 "drums" or timbers are employed in the Atlantean task of supporting the 7,000,000 pounds of brick and mortar and iron. J. H. Gray is the engineer in charge.

The alterations in the store of C. D. Peacock, which have been under way for some time past have been completed, and the changes made are a great improvement. Two big windows were cut in the south wall of the building ; the offices are now in the basement, the space thus vacated being utilized for more counter space. Several other changes were made which were found necessary to the rapidly growing business.

W. C. PEACOCK MISQUOTED

Chicago Jeweler Denies Statement About the Platinum Situation Credited to Him

Chicago, April 28.—Another member of the jewelry trade who was misquoted on the platinum situation by the daily and trade press is Walter C. Peacock of C. D. Peacock, Inc. Mr. Peacock states that he never made any such statement as credited to him in the news from Chicago published in The Jewelers' Circular of April 18 and in fact did not give out any interview on the platinum situation to any papers.

Mr. Peacock telegraphed a statement to this effect to Walter C. Buffington, vice-president of the concern, who went to New York last week with W. F. Juergens of the Juergens & Andersen Co. to meet the platinum committee of the Vigilance Committee that has had charge of the negotiations between the jewelers and the government.

C. D. Peacock, Inc., 103 S. State St., reported sensational success in promoting the sale of watch bands for men. The company attributed heavy buying—including orders from 16 states—to its recent newspaper advertisement featuring six types of featherweight bands in stainless steel, made by Don Juan; Cordovan leather, knitted cotton and nylon. The attractive layout illustrated snap-on and corded strap styles ranging in price from one dollar to $3.95.

Bold Sunday Morning Robbery at C. D. Peacock’s Store

Chicago, Ill ., Jan. 25. — The night janitor at Peacock’s jewelry establishment was startled from his work at 5 a. m., Sunday, by a loud noise which sounded to him like the dropping of a crowbar on the pavement. Running upstairs into the store and looking around he failed to discern anything unusual, and returned to his work in the basement. About ten minutes later he was called upstairs by a policeman rapping on the front door, who said that one of the large show windows on the north side of store in front of watch repairing department, containing opera glasses, including inside case, had been broken into.

Evidently the thief or thieves made quick work in their robbery owing to the fact that the police were on hand in ten minutes from the time of the robbery. This show window is situated near the entrance to elevator belonging to the building making it easy to watch the police as they pass to and fro on their beat ; at the same time, skulking in the shadow of the large passageway, they could remain unobserved for some time watching their time to commit the robbery. On examining the surroundings a piece of iron about 12 inches long was discovered, also a full half brick which was evidently the instrument used in breaking windows. The hole looked as if a cannon ball had been shot into it.

In his haste the robber cut his hand on the jagged edges of the broken glass, leaving blood drops on the bottom of the showcase. Five Lemaire opera glasses were taken, two handled and two plain, worth in all about $60.
