It does not require a prohibitory
enactment to induce the eople o'f
Rock Island to partake of the foun
tain of life. As an indication of the
manner in which the Mitchell &
Lynde artesian well is appreciated,
it need only be said that an ob-erv-ing
citizen in the block this morning
kept a record for an hour, between
10 and 11, of the unrulier of people
who visited the well, and was sur
prised to find in that time 214 per
sons quenched their thrist at the
well, while 38 stopped with recepta

thirsty day. either.
Another change that will be made
in consequence of the transfer of the

in the ticket office of the road at the
Perry street depot at Davenport.
The present dispatcher's force will
then be represented by simply a day
and night operator, and they will do
duty also in selling tickets. This
will displace Charles Anderson, day
ticket agent, and J. S. Streeper, on
the same place at night. It is possi
ble that one or both of the men dis
placed will be provided for by the
company somewhere else.

cleared of the pests, the ground
being black in places with the in

Kddie Robbins is well known in

the reputation of being the birth
place of the champion amateur diver
of the world.

Who love pretty goods, who love new goods, who love
economical prices, all such will hasten to sen these.
It is a fact worth rcmemlering that the shrewdest,
more practical lady buyers, of Rock Island and Mo
line, do all, or a large portion of their buying here.
They say it is because they find new goods and lower
prices on tirst-class goods. We wish to enlarge onr
reputation in this resjiect, so the bargain knife falls
this week with a keen edge on several departments.
