toiy and literature.
At yesterday's meeting a report of
tne summer wort was made by
Mrs. Simon; a paper on "Causes of
Poverty" was read by Mrs. M. C
Rice, and an address was made by
Mrs. John P. Van Patten, of Daven
port, to whom a vote of thanka was
extended at the conclusion of the
meeting. The meeting was also
treated to a very well rendered flute

mother, Mrs. L. Simon.
Work af the Summer.
In her report Mrs. Simon said: "In
reviewing the summer work of the
section I feel conscious that we have
not accomplished all that was ex
pected of us. However.- a splendid
winter a program, combined with an
increase in membership, angurs well
lor tne success of the organization.
The study circle, which meets twice a
mon;h, has adopted the Chautauqua
literary ana scientific coarse, under
the direction of Rev. Mr. Thorner. The
demand for active charity from the
council has not been so great, owing
to the existence for many vears of
the Deborah Benevolent societv.
However, the study of philanthrophy
has not been neglected. Our theories
put into practice resulted in the. es
tablishment of a sewing class, where
the children of the poor and others
had no such opportunity before.
Here young girls, most of whom did
not know how to thread a needle, or
adjust a thimble, were taught to sew.
ana me garments given to tba sew
ers. The possibilities of the future
for such a school are great. The
class began with nine little girls June
last, and now it has 20. And we are
now able tu report the formation of
three Sunday school classes. The
generosity ot the Ferry compsny in
permitting the children ot the mis
sion classes free rides tj Davenport
is greatly appreciated.
Again, I repeat, we do not claim
that we have done much: only awak
ened to the realization that we must
begin to do. If the conncil. beside
stimulating into life a movement for
promoting the knowledge of Jewhh
history and literature, shall better
the condition of the unfortunate in
any degree, every member should as
sume an indiridaal responsibility of
helping to better the condition of
these children; and through the chil
dren can we hope to reach the parents.
We consider we have a root
planted firmly in the soil of honest
endeavor and warmed by the fervor
of deep conviction that no bnnd is
greater, truer or more full of prom
ise ior numanity than that oi Juda

with the election of the following
officers: : "
President F. J. Staassen.

The object of the association is to
inaugurate a uniform graded scale
for the sale of bread. The bakers
claim that the advance in flour
makes it imperative that a corre
sponding advance bs made in the
price of bread, and hence hereafter
bread will sell at 5 cents a loaf
straight, instead of three loaves for
a dime, as has been the custom.
BLAIR AND HIS BRIDGE.

The Davenport Democrat says that
F. P. Blair, ot the descent bridge
has gone east on a mission whuh is
expected to be fraught with import,
auce to that city and the bridge pro.
ject. The delay in the receipt of
stone has caased a partial suspension
of work, but preparatory wbrk for
the next pier has been taken up, so
that too much time shall not be lost.
The Democrat says further: "The
opinion seems to be current, to some
extent, that the Crescent people are
angling for the C, B. & Q. road. At
any rate it is said that some Daven.
port business men who are interested
in the company, and who handle
quite large volumes of goods in the
course of the year, have for some
time been throwing all their ship
ments in here to the C B. & Q, and
as many of their outward bound
shipments as possible. 7 his, it is
supposed, is being done by way ot
demonstrating to the C , B. as Q.
management that there is big busi
ness here for it.,if it will only enter
this city outright by way of the new
bridge. But of course there is al
ways a great amount of gossip about
such an enterprise as this. and some

The original challenge, it will be re

through Thb Akocs, and Burns'
backers here gave expression to their
willingness to accept. Little is
known here about Atherton. although
Burns' friends claim they know him
to be a good man. The correspond
ence which has come to Thb Akocs
so far evinces a spirit of good
faith, but you cannot alwaya tell
about these latter day sporting
events. It must be said, however.
that such matches as Burns has ap
peared in in Rock Island have been
bona fide and upon their merits.
