And soon upon its heels will follow the days of
fall cleaning and the rearranging of the home. --'
You may or may not know that there is one
place in the thVee cities where you can find the
latest of everything in the furniture line. Not
for a few days spring and fall do they think of
their trade, but all the year round they plan to
give those who patronize them the best and
latest the market affords at fair prices.
This Fall the Stock
Will Be Superb
Their line of carpets which is always away
ahead of the others, is constantly added to.
New effects are out for 1S98 that will surely
please you. In the other branches it is the same;
many pretty novelties will be shown that cannot
fail to please you. Remember this then and
come here when you are ready . for fall purchases.

Committee on Arrangements
The committee designated by former
memliers of Company A to arrange a
suitable reception for the returning
heroes held another meeting Tester
day afternoon at The Akgi'S office.
Mayor Medill was preseut and sub
mitted a commumcatiou from the
committee in Milan planning for
company barbecue on Vandrutf's isl
and, or other convenient locality. The
unanimous expression of the commit
tee was that while Rock Island should
be included in any such demonstra
tion, the original plans contemplated
here, as heretofore outlined, should le
carried out. After the home demon
stration arrangements mav be made
to go into the county affair. This the
committee, as far as its province is
concerned, will determine at an
other meeting tomorrow night. Mean
while a committee which the chair
was, upon motion of Walter Johnson,
authorized to appoint, will look into
the matter, ami ascertain Moline s sen
timents on the subject.
Motions were adopted providing for
additional committees, a general com
mittee, reception committee, etc.
and it was decided in the main event
in honor of the soldiers to include the
Naval Reserves living in Rook Island
The plans are that on the arrival
home of the bovs thev be met at the
depot and escorted to Market Square,
where Mayor Medill will greet them
briefly, and they will then go to their
armory and le dismissed, in order
that thev mav go to their homes. A
few days later it is proposed to give
them a banquet at the Harper, the
honored guests on which occasion are
to be limited to the company going to
the front, and those who, while en
listing, were rejected through no fault
of their own, and the home members
of the Naval Reserves. The banquet
is to le preceded by a public recep
tion at some convenient hall.
According to SpringlieM advices
Camp Lincoln is being prepared for
the reception of the oth regiment
Lieut. Krug, the mustering out ofiicer
who has just completed the formality
of sending the companies of the 5th
to their resiective cities on the
SO-davs' furlough, has been notified
that '-the 6th regiment, now on its
way home from Porto Rico, will be
mustered out here, while the 1st and
7th will be mustered out in Chi
cago. The men of the oth will return
here uct. 11, and will remain in camp
five days, during which time they
will have to submit to a medical ex
amination. They will then be paid
in full and will d'isband Oct. 16."
Ahead of the Regiment.
Private William Durling, of Com
pany A. writing to his folks from
Ponce under date of Aug. 28, and tell
ing of the march from Adjuntas says:
We are altout 20 miles ahead of the
main body. There are eight of us in
a squad Jack Cassin, Jack Glass,
Bud Fider, Ed Wagner, Henry Lamp,
Ralph Kepford, Carl Schmacht and
myself. Ve left the regiment at
Utuado and made the march in two
days. It was to take three days, but
we got swift and forged ahead. Now
we are our own bosses for once in
four months. At noon the 26th we
came to a creek, and were sitting un
der the roof of a sugar mill cooking
our supper, when a cloud burst in
the mountains, sweeping houses and
barns away, and drowning stock.
Four soldiers had a narrow escape.
The house they occupied was swept
awav, and one man lost his gun and
blanket roll. The creek dropped to
normal size inside of two hours.
Last night we were marching along
the road, and we heartl the notes
of a piano. We stopped in front of
the house and listened. When the
man came out to see what we wanted,
we told him about our march, and he
said we could sleep in one of his
houses. We accepted. He and his
wife cooked supper for us. In the
morning thev gave as coffee. Then
we came on to this place, and are now
waiting for the regiment.

leathering Ideas and Pointers Previous to
Renewing: Rook Island Contract.
Which Kxptres In IeeemUer Next Com
bination System Discussed and Sen ice
Every Night the Tear Round Proposed.
Mayor T. J. Medill amd the tire and
light "committee of the city council.
Aids. Charles Bleuer, T. A. Pender and
G. W. Aster, are off on a jaunt to
inspect the systems of illumination in
vogue in other cities, for the purpose
of collecting pointers which will serve
them in providing light for Rock Isl
and in the future, the present contract
with the People's Power company ex
piring next December.
The committee departed last even
ing for the north on the Burlington.
It is the intention to see St. Paul and
Minneapolis bv lamp light, returning
to Rock Island alxmt Thursday, and
then taking in Omaha. Kansas City
and St. Joe.
The lighting problem has been one
that has lieen receiving a great deal
of study and attention on the part of
Mayor Medill and the committee, and
when another contract is entered into,
judging from indications, there will
be a change in specifications which
will provide for an improvement of
the service. Among other things
proposed is that the lights be opera
tion every night, rain or shine, moon
or no moon, the year around, instead
of burning on dark nights only, as is
the case at present. A combination
system has also lieen discussed, em
bracing tower lights, but past experi
ence has taught Rock Island the im
practicability of the tower as a means
of improving street illumination.
The People's Power company has
given excellent satisfaction decid
edly in contrast with that received by
Davenport from the cornp.fny which
holds sway on that side of the creek.
The city council meets again next
Monday night, at which time it is
proposed to take formal action on the
levee improvement plan. In the
meantime corporations that have
promised to contribute toward defray
ing the cost will be head from. It
is Ijelieved all will do their share.
SCHOOL FOR FIRST WARD.
Probability That a New Dulldlng Will Be
Erected There Soon.
One of the probabilities of the next
season is a new school building for the
First. ward. Much depends on the
financial side of the proposition, as
such an improvement would necessi
tate an expenditure of not less than
$30,000, and the members of the board
of education who have -iven the mat
ter thought are not prepared to com
mit themselves. There seems no
doubting the claim set up by the peo
ple ot tne rirst ward ot the need of a
new buildino-. The present one is
ancient, out of date and wholly inade
quate. It is without heating or ven
tilation, except by old methods.
' It is absurd to say that wealth is a
thing of Bnch a kind that a man with
plenty of it around him may perish
with hunger, like Midas in the fable,
who, from his insatiable wish, found
everything before him turned into gold.
