The Fourth in Rock Island was a
most delightful day, not only in the
favorable condition of the elements,
bat in the fact that while there was
no general demonstration all seemed
to hnd ample opportunity for un
corking their enthusiasm. The
Tower was the main center of at
traction whither thousands of people
went, notwithstanding that the loss
of the Inn the daj before led many
to think the features of the day
wonld be interfered with. Abundant
provision had been made for the ac
commodation of all. and while some
of the fireworks and lanterns were
destroyed. Manager Lardner had re
placed all these as far as possible,
and no one felt disappointed. The
events at the theatre were snperior
to anythin? ever seen there. The
vaudeville features were first-class,
but the performance by Loekhart's
elephants, which opened an 8-day en
gagement, eciipsea any achievement
jet shown in the trinmphs of animal
training. Mr. Lockhart has shown
that the herd of five homely beasts
over which he exerts such wonder

signs, nor is their program confined

as the design is approved by Presi

architecture of the new inn will be
that it will have four faces, that ia it
will be just as attractive from the
