From far ewer Idaho comes news
rt a Httle romance-ia which Hock
Island is more or lees interested.
D. H. Spencer and Dolly hlcDan
nell were schoolmates and lovers in
this city 30 years ego. lie was of an
edrentoruus torn of mind, and when
yet in his teens started for the woolly
west, lie settled ia Oaycee cocnty.
Idaho. , He engaged in a lock raising.
Spencer did not forget bis Rock Isl
and love. They corresponded for
several years, dcring which he
aoogbt to have her come are ft and
become his wife. She had n i objec
tions to marrying him. bnt she re
fused to make the trip. to Idaho
alone, as he wanted her - to. lie
pleaded with her, bnt she tnmed a
deaf ear on him, and the engagement
was subsequently broken.
Miss McUaunell in the course of
time became the wife of Dr. Preston
Hartford, of Wisconsin. They did
not live happily, however, and a di
vorce followed. And Spencer be
came a benedict, too, leading a
western lady to the altar. Bnt they
didn't get along very well, either.
So they were likewise divorced.
Spencer wrote to Davenport rela
tives. Years kept slipping by.
He loaned through this source that
his old schoolmate and lover In youth
as still alive and single. He
dropped her a line. She answered
him. So latere began flying . pretty
thick between Idaho and Moline,
vhere the lady stopped with her
lister, Mrs. Lovejoy, after ber di
vorce. The old love was rekindled.
He again asked her to be his wife.
She was agreeable, and had no ob
jection to making the trip alone,
either. March 31 they were married
at Dorsey cottage. Mountain Home,
Idaho, Bev. A.S. Harkins, officiating.
Their home is at Castle Creek, Idaho
Tba County Uaatd.
The connty board is now thus com
posed: S. W. Woodburn, d.. Coe;
Byron Kendall, r.. Canoe Creek; S. J.
Maxwell, r., Port Bjton; J. H.
Thornton, r.. South Moline; F. A.

Thus it will be seen the board
stands on straight party -lines 11
lemocrats to 15 republicans, although
on.6 of the latter were elected in
districts where there was no opposi
tion, and tho party of minority rep
resentation will probably be given
the proper recognition in the organi
zation of the board. Chairman
Carey will be a candidate for re
election, while VV. P. Quayle, J. G.
Britton and Joseph Fitzpatrack are
also talked of for the same office.
Dr. Mor jem 11 and the Stall.
There Is war on in Moline between
Dr. J. W. Morgan and the Moline
Mail. In aa ecstasy of delight over
the returns the night of election Dr.
Morgan made a speech in front
of tbe Republican-Journal office in
which he spoke disparagingly of the
course of the Mail In the campaign.
The consequence was that tho next
night the Mail said soma things
about the doctor that were not highly
complimentary. - Now the doctr

The Klug-Hasler Co. being desirous of retiring from business, sold their excellent stock to us at about 33 per
cent of its original cost. Having secured it at this normal figure, we can place it before the public far below

And display the various lines so that it may be plainly seen just what the goods are. That this firm never handled
poor, trashy goods, but just the opposite, fine, high-grade merchandise right through their entire stock, is a well
known fact; so don't come with the idea that you'll find "cheap John" shoddy goods, for there aren't any. We
mention some of the lines which are in excellent qualities and away below the market: Lace Curtains, Under
wear, Hosiery, Kid Gloves, Muslin Underwear, Infants' Wear, Embroideries, Silk Handkerchiefs, Corsets, Silks,
Dress Goods, Wash Dress Goods, Mackintoshes, Cloaks, etc.
ThU Closing-Out Sale Will be Conducted in a Straight, Forward Bus'ness Manner.
Just as we have been conducting the Boston Store during the past 10 years. No misrepresentations in any way
will be allowed. The goods will be sold on their quality and price merits, and STRICTLY FOR CASH.
THIS WAS A CASH DEAL WITH US IN BUYING, and will be the same in selling; so come pre
pared to buy largely, for we are sure you'll want the goods when you see them with their little prices.
ON THE SECOND FLOOR will be found Lace Curtains at a big discount. Jackets and Capes at one
third of their cost, Hosiery, Underwear, Infants' Capes, Art Fringes, Silk Pillows, Children's Dresses, Under
