Despite the queer things that have
been done in cennection with the
erection of the new Rock l-;and
county court house, it rises, as it ap
proache completion, as. an evidence
of the enterprise ol the people of the
county, and as a testimonial to the
untiring zeal of the citizens of Rock
Island who made ita erection porsi
ble. As a structure it stands i r
truth and justice, for honor and dig
nity. It is a beauti'nl building,
massive yet graceful, simple yet
grand. It is, aud should be, a source
of common pride and joy.
The building is now nearing com
pletion, and will be ready

glance through its interior af
fords an idea of the advantages
it is to offer, and the privileges it i
to afford. Beautifully lighted, and
finished in apparently the most
substantial manner, it will be a place
of beauty and inspiration. The fre

Not so long ag", but that it it
within the memory of many of the
citizens of Rock Island, the morning
piper startled the public one morn
ing by a vigorous and vkinus attack
on premature activity on the part of
aspirants for po'itical preferment.
The cause of the unnsui: symptoms
on the part of the L ... m was the dis
covery that the wily politician.
rhcraV. had entered upon a canvass
for the Rock Island pounfflre in
dorsement before the Union, whose
editor had planned tj make a p'ay
for the same place, realised what
wasgcicgon. The upshot of the
matter was that the sunrise editor
became frenzied with fury and he
gave wav to a species of revived an.
imation that almost resulted in a
Si nsultati jn cn the pirt of a puzzled
medic il fraternity And ever and
anon since ihco, the post e on the
