TCESDAT, JcHE 11, 1895.
Thk Illinois legislature is on its
last pegs for which mercy let 08 h"
Let there bo no more blind cau
cuses on the court bouse a fair deal
is what the public demands.
It seems like nonsense to talk of
brick in connection with the Rock
Island county court house, where
there is such an arraj of low figures
on the best quality of stone. There
is nothing toe good for Rock Island
county. Let us hare the best if it
pleases the board.
The A hous has passed no criticism
on the plans for the new court house,
and it was the first paper in the
county and the only paper in Rock
Island to publish them. It con
demned the reclusive methods of
adopting them and it continues to
abhor all such modes of procedure.
The proposed new Protestant
Episcopal diocese of Washington is
to consist of the District of Columbia
and four counties of Maryland
Prince George's, St. Mary's, Charles
and Montgomery. If the division is
ratified by the general convention
that meets in October, Bishop Paret
will probably decide to be bishop of
the new see, which will leave the
diocese of Maryland vacant.
What The Argus may think or
say on the court house question may
have been without influence with the
board in the past, as some of the
members and others have been heard
to say, but this paper proposes to
continue to voice its opinion ol mat
ters and things. And furthermore.
it proposes to insist that all proceed
ings be open and above board on the
contract ana tne- material, ii tne
board did follow its ewo sweet will

surprising number of the "abandoned
farms ' ol the state have been reoo-
rupied this spring, and that the new
tenants apiiear . not to be mere
casual residents, who have occupied
the places as a tramp might put up
lor awhile in a empty house, bnt in
dustrious farmers, who are bright
ening up the old farms in a manner
that indicates that thev have come
there to stay. Doubtless, as the
Keokuk Constitution-Democrat says.
this is but another evidence ot the
returning prosperity that is bright
ening up the whole country.
A Washington telegram announces
that Mai. R. V. McClaughry has

GALLANTRY COST A SHIRT.
Darnell nop Basalts BoUowed
Hid a Cite oan a Lady.
One of the most popular men in the 1
down tow 3 produce district is Q. W.
Christie. His temper, however, has been
sorely tried of late, and there is a wick
ed gleam in his eyes when anybody ot
ters the word "Fire" in his presence..
"Chris," as bis friends call him,
owns more truck horses than any other
man in the city. He also owns a stock
farm in Poughkeepsie. He recently in
vited one of his friends, Fred Oebney,
banana importer, to visit his country
place. Mr. Gebney accepted, and both
men started lor tne urana central sta
tion in a buggy. Chris drove.
Chris, be it said, sported an immacu
late shirt front, in which glittered
large diamond. The friends were bowl
ing along Fifth avenue when Chris,
who was smoking a cigar, suddenly
started. He bad seen a lady friend, and
the impropriety of saluting her with a
cigar in his mouth caused him to let the
weed drop, as he thought, to the bottom
of the buggy.
They had proceeded a block or so
when Ed remarked:
' 'Something's on fire. "
"That's so," replied Chris, looking
around. "I can smell smoke. Maybe
it's in one of these buildings, and
"Great Scott! Wow I" he yelled.
It's me. Caesar's ghost 1 . It's burning
'Have yon got 'em?" inquired Ed.
'Suppose I turn in a fire alarm. "
Before he could make any further
comment Chris bad stopped his horse,
jumped from the buggy and was execu
ting a war dance on the sidwealk.
Smoke was rising from beneath his
waistcoat.'and the cigar, the cause of it
all,, dropped to the ground.
"Well. I'll be jiggered," exclaimed
Chris. His spotless shirt front was dis
colored and burned in places.
'Perhaps it was the diamond, " sug
"Diamonds be blowed!" retorted
Chris. "Say," he added, "I can't go to
the farm looking like this."
'Ob, that's soon remedied, " replied
Ed. "Get a celluloid shirt front If
yon're careful, it wan't take fire, bnt
you mustn't smoke, and don't put the
sparkler in either."
Ed's suggestion was carried out. The
journey was resumed, and wheu.the
men returned to the city the story leak'
ed out. That is why many down town
produce merchants take down their fire
extinguishers when Chris happens along.
Chris says he appreciates a joke, but
when be is invited to a business men a
dinner and receives a miniature fire
man's cap and red lantern as souvenirs
the thing's going too far." New
THE WOODS BY NIGHT.
Sound, Sight, and Shadows Among
Treea and Boshee.
"Sit still in the woods at night and
look and liston," said au old time nat
uralist to me one day, "and yon will
i or hear strange things, not to be
seen or heard save by rarest chance in
the busy hours of the day. "
I thought of the remark as I sat per
fectly still in a small opening of the
Adirondack woods at the close of one
day last summer. It was twilight, and
out of the dim, uncertain light loomed
the outlines of the tree in the valley and
of the Ampersand mountain in the dis
tance. Quickly I saw the shadow or a
moving figure, which I made out to be
that of a fox. How stealthily the sly
fellow crept along I He made no noise;

As he turned, for the first time he
noticed me. Ho looked at me, and I
looked at him. Then reynard revealed
tho ennning of his kind. Still keeping
his eye on me. he sidled away until he
reached the dark shades and recesses,
when ho disappeared in an instant.
I know reynard was out on his night
ly foraging expedition. Perhaps he was
looking for a wild rabbit or a fat par
tridge, or perhaps he intended to rob
soma farmer of bis choicest fowls. The
fox is a night traveler. He makes his
journey after dark, finds his dinner and
retires always before the break ot day.

The tmrgrat Medical Library.
A writer in the Washington Star says
that the largest and most complete med
ical library in the world is the collec
tion of medical works located in the
Army Medical museum, 'in that city,
under the care of the surgeon general's
office of the war department and the im
mediate supervision of Dr. John S. Bil
lings, U. S. A. It may be said that the
card index system of ' medical publica
tions used by the library is the most
thorough and practical index of medical
works in the world. The library now
includes about 113,000 bound volumes
and about 150,090 pamphlets. It is es
timated that this collection comprises
three-fourths of the medical literature
of tho world, and at least nine-tenths of
the medical literature which has been
published within the last ten years.

MARVELOUS JENNY LIND.
Intel-satin- Beailniaomees of tho "Swedish
Among the most interesting of those
of whom John Addington Symonds gives
reminiscences ip his recently published
autobiography is Mme. Jenny Lind
Goldscbmidt, of whom the image has
faded away for the present generation,
like tbt pf all whose power was dis
played on the ephemeral sphere of the
stage. He , gives . a very charming ac
count of this simple minded, gracious
and womanly singer, who had the high
est devotion to her art, saying, "I sing
to God, " and whose home life and man--tiers
were those of simple affection and
womanliness. Jenny Lind had passed
beyond the bloom of youth when Sy
monds saw her, and her marvelous voice
was beginning to lose its power, but
ber artistic method was as pure as ever,
and her expression as magical. The fol
lowing is bis impression of her singing:
Mme. Goldscbmidt came on second
in 'On Mighty Pseans. She was quite in
black and looked to me an old, worn
lady, with a large head and a small per
son. She wore no crinoline, and her
dress, with its loose waist, reminded me
of grandmamma's. At the first tones of
her voice I quivered all over. It was
not ber wonderful execution, her pathos,
varying expression, subtle inflexibility,
that surprised me, but the pure timbre,
which so vibrated and thrilled my very
eonl that tears came into my eyes. The
volume of tone she threw out and then
diminished to a whisper, which per
meated the room; the diminneudoes and
crescendoes, the nightingale metallic
strokes, brilliant accents and floods of
swift, successive notes I expected, bnt I
had not realized such quality of voice."
He gives a charming picture of .the
home of the Goldscbniidts at Oak Lee,
and this account of the aging can ta trice
singing to her bird is very graceful:
A blackbird hung in a cage outside
the door. Mme. Goldschmidt went up
and talked to it 'Come, pretty bird,
pretty, pretty little bird, do give us
a little song. We want to hear yon sing
so much, yon pretty, pretty little bird, '
in-such a coaxing way that the bird, who
had been shy at first, got down and
came close to her and put its head on
ono side to listen. Then Mma Gold
scbmidt sang to it roulades and long
shakes and high, sharp notes which
made the bird moist inquisitive. But he
continued silent until she turnod to go,
and then he gave a loud, shrill chirrup,
as if tocall her back. "Cincinnati En
