The dispatch stating that Gov.
Altgeld had issaed an order directing
Col. Jack D. Foster, commanding the
Sixth infantry, Illinois National
Guard, to make an effort to increase
the roster of tbe Sixth infantry to
1,000 men by July 1,1896, was shown
Adj. Gen. Hilton and denied ia toto
by that official.
lie states that no such order has
been issaed from his office, and that
all National Guard orders are issued
direct from headquarters. Such an
order as the one mentioned would be
entirely out of the ordinary military
practice of the guard, and beside
would not be issued. When a com
pany, regiment or battalion is desired
to be Increased or made more effi
cient, the same is accomplished by
pnreiy local measures, ana not
through official orders. Each com
pany is officered and ruled by local
members of the guard, and they are
the ones to maintain the efficiency of
the same. The order was not issued
nor will it be.

The publication of what is now going
on in the republican ranks through
out the county under the direction of
the ambitious Mr. Collins in last
night's Abous astounded the Union,
and finding that so much had been
revealed of what it had no inkling
whatever.lt simply pursues its us
ual tactics and denies everything.
With what it does not argee it repudi
ates. Of what it is in ignorance it de
clares false. The Union, ae usual,
is behind time, but when he future
discloses the accuracy of The Abacs'
assertions it will fall into line and
uphold Mr. Collins in the very tac
tics of which it is now declaring he
is not guilty of.

Harper's theatre was dark last
evening, notwithstanding the an
nounced appearance of tbe Clara
Schumann Ladies' orchestra. Mana
ger Bieuer became uneasy yesterday
when no word was beard from the
company, but be still was confident
the iadlee would materialize in time
to give their entertainment and con
sequently could not state definitely
wnetner it would do a case 01 enter
tainment or not. The orchestra visited
Rock Island in the early part of the
present season and is considered one
ith plenty of financial backing, and
therefore would not be liable to suc
cumb to the little difficulties which
frequently side-track professional
organisations. So It is supposed
that a misunderstanding in dates
has occurred. The ladies were in
Galesburg Saturday evening, but
Mr. Bieuer is unable to find out
where they have been since.

time with good results. Scientists say
that tbe food value of sugar is very
great. A "pound of sugar contains much

"Good Morning! Carpets?" Yes sir, indeed we have. Just step
this way. See those long lines of shelves, vthey are fairly loaded
with carpets of every grade, from Hemp and Rag to Ingrain and
Body Brussels. Just glance at those handsome patterns there are
carpets for the rich and carpets for the poor. Cast your eye over
these Gobelins, Victorias and Velvets aren't they beauties? What .
richer goods would you want spread out on your floor than those "
that lie before you? And yet many of them are comparatively low
in price. Here again feast your eyes on these varigated figures in
Ingrains. You can walk up and down the room and find something
to suit the elaborate furnishings of a stately drawing room, library
or parlor, or you can match the more sober taste of a plain cozy
home. See that grand display of Room Rugs spread out on that
side. Note the many beautiful new figures and the exquisite shades
and colorings. These have never been shown before in such an ar
ray anywhere in this territory. Down there you see those beautiful
Straw Mattings in Chinese and Japanese. They are a feature in
themselves and are being marked down where you can get them
easily. Here at the end we are showing our Oilcloths and Lin
oleums, the latter eight and sixteen quarters wide. You can get
JUST WHAT YOU WANTss.
And we are certain wou will be satisfied. Size up that long row of
Hall and Stair Carpets of many makes and fashionable designs.
Those are what make a home presentable at first sight. Here, there
and everywhere about you are Carpets and Rugs of all prices, from
the highest to the lowest. You must be going to carpet a parlor, bed
room, or make some change in your dining room floor this spring,
so keep us in mind and look at bur line. In endless array we are
showing Cocoa Matting, French Wilton Rugs, La Paris Rugs, Fur
Rugs and Tapestry .and Body Brussells. Remember our men are
