Te New Rules.
The rules of this year do not con
flict with the old" rules te any ex
tent. Among the proposed changes
in the rules governing the game is
one providing that two balls shall be
furnished by the home club, and that
when one ts batted to foul grouud
the umpire shall at nncp vnt tliA
other ball into play: and when one
t H i. . . ...
oau is iom me omer shall be ued,
and that when one is so damaged as
to be unlit for play the umpire'shall,
at the request of either captain,
bring the other ball into play, calling
for a new ball at the same time.
Another rule defines a sacrifice hit
as one falling in fair ground and
made for the purpose of advancing
a runner on base, which results in
putting out the batsman, or would
so result if handled without an error.
One says that a strike is a foul hit
made by a batsman while trying to
bunt a sacrifice hit that rolls upon
foul ground between the home plate
and third base. Still another rule
delines a strike as a ball struck at if
the ball touches any part of the bats
Another proposed rule says, "The
batsman is out if. while attempting
a third strike, the ball touches any
part of his person, in which event
base runners occupying bases 6hall
return, as provided in suction 5, rule
47. of the old rules. The following
will be. added to section 4, rule 44:
Advances a runner a base by a bunt
sacrifice hit, which results in putting
out the Imtsman. or would so result
if handled without an error. "

as a general rule, John is a peaceable

yesterday had a bad effect upon him,
and when between the bridges he

Sarah J. Aiken, one of the pioneer
residents of this city, aged C3 years,
died this morning at 1 o'clock of
heart failure at her home on L'te ave

in her rocking chair when she was
attacked with heart failure and
choked to death. Mrs. Aiken has
had (jiiite a remarkable career. She
was the first white child born in the
city of Rock Island, III., of which
her father was the founder, and her
life has been full of tbo trials and
tribulations of a woman on the fron
tier. Mrs. Aiken was a daughter of the
late Jonah Case, of South Rock Isl

South Rock Island was named after
her husband, who died at Clinton,

A BAD FIRE.
TIM Dllam Ja Waraaoass la Davenport
Davenport had a costly fire last
evening. Abont 8 o'clock Officer
Connelly was patroling bis beat near
the bridge, and looking down the
river saw tne reflection of nre on the
water, he ran to the vicinity of the
Diamond Jo storehouse and turned
in the alarm. The department re
sponded quickly, but before the fire
was subdued the building was com
pletely gutted. The general impres
sion is that the fire was the work of
some incendiary, as there was no tire
in the stove in the warehouse.
In the bnildin? were, 211 tons of
hay, owned by D. Regennitter, val
ued at from f 1,700 to $1,800, insured
for fl,000; 800 cases of canned corn,
owned by Baker & Morgan, of Aber
deen. Maryland, valued at from
$1,000 to 1,200, and insured for
1700. There was also a great deal of
household furniture owned bv differ
ent parties, valued at about $2,000,
In a barn adjoining the warehouse
and owned by Agent Osborne, were
inree horses, two oi wbicb were
saved, but the third was smothered.
Mr. Osborne's furniture was also
damaged, and his loss will amount
to about $1,000.

.The Morrelt Liquor Care.
The Alices is in receipt of a letter
from Dr. V. A. Paul, who is now in
control of the Morrell Liquor Cure
company in New York, in which he
says the company is now operating
over forty institutes in the east and
one in Canada. "We have," savs
Dr. Paul, "10 stock sub-comnanies
each from $20,000 to a half a million.
and arc organizing companies in the
slates of Washington. Oregon and
Indiana, as well as a large company
in London. The change in the per
sonnel of the company is this, that
Mr. Guycr retires from the oflice of
secretary and treasurer, and palso
from the board, and Albert S. Com
stock, a prominent retired Wall
street broker takes his place and be
comes a stockholder. John For
sythe, a well-known Broadway busi
ness man, purchases a large interest
in the stock, as also does George II.
Morrison, a prominent real estate
promoter and stock broker, well
known in Wall street. The majority
of the directors are now in
New York, as is also the main office
of the company. S. H. Velio is
still on the board and 13 Its president
while L. S. McCabe is still director
and vice president of the board, but
both gentlemen expect to retire soon
from official relations with the com
pany, as the office and works of the
company are so remote from their
business that they annot give per
sonal attention to its affairs. The
change in the affairs of the company
and the personnel of the board has
been brought about with jicrfect har
mony of feeling and through the
unanimous and mutual desire for
such on the part of the original
board. I will say here that within a
few months there will be a new insti
tute opened in Rock Island in con
nection with a fully equipped home
or sanitarinm which will be still
more beneficial to our city than the
inslitute which we have maintained

about thirtv teachers of the upper
end participating in the exercises.

It consisted of an army drill, under

well. As this was the captain's first
appearance in public with a drilled
company, a large concourse of
friends began to assemble early in
the evening to do him homage, and
we would add that all the applause
called forth was : well merited, as
James perfectly understood his
place, and commands, that the well
drilled company executed heroically,
after which the congregation were
treated to a repast of brown bread,
beans and coffee.
