TOLD ABOUT TOWN.
Treasured Feline's Fate and a Family's
One day a deserted-looking little
feline appeared appcalingly at the
door of a prominent residence. Hav
ing a peculiar iondness for cute cats
and the visitor answering a descrip-
iou ot the favored kind, the familv
bade the traveler enter. Kvery kind
ness was showered upon the new
comer and in a short time it became
as though an acknowledged member
of tVe household. One morning the
familiar greeting of the feline did
not materialize and grave apprehen
sion, after a thorough search, as to
the whereabouts of the cat was ex
pressed. The entire neighborhood
was overhauled, but the treasured
animal could not ba located. The
family then began to speculate as to
the probability of some fate having
befallen kitty. In the vard there
was a well one of those old-fash
ioned ones with a windlass and one
ventured the thought of the kitten
being knocked in there from an
upper cut from a neighboring feline
in tho course of an argument over
vocalism while perched on the curb
ing rendering a moonlight duet.
Such a misfortune was very probable
thev all contended, and after more
conjecturing the matter was dropped
for the time being.

that water," began a member of the
familv a day or so after, and there
is no question in my mind but what
kitty's remains lay at the bottom of
the well. 1 11 drink no more of it
The remainder of the family, after
a careful test, could detect the same
deceased-like taste. Everybody be
lieved the mystery of kitty's disap
pcarance was solved.
An examination of the well was
made, but the deceased cat could not
bo brought to the surface. Never
theless no one would absorb aay of
the well's contents. The residence
was rather remote from a house
where' well water could be secured.
but a half-mile would beat drinking
water with a cat in it.
Day after day the sons legged the
drinking material for a baif-miic
through the scorching rays of
August's sun but the quality Of the
water repaid the trouble. Time
went on, but the lost feline never
came back. One day the people with

The time of the year for fall mu

Rock Island needs a general renova
tion about as badly as it ever did in
its history, this from the standpoint
of cleanliness and tidiness, no less
than as a sanitary measure.
A week ago The Arvjls spoke of
the neglected condition of the alleys
in the business portion of the city
and the filth that has accumulated in
many of them. The calling of atten
tion to these instances ef neglect has
led to the bulging of complaint con
cerning alleys in the resident dis
tricts, and throughout the city gen-
raiiy. in fact, from all parts of the
city come reports that the condition
of the alleys was never quite so bad
General Cleaning I'p Necessary.
As a matter of truth the city is in

unless rigid measures are adopted an
epidemic may be threatened, lief
