GEN. FLAGLER COMING
Chief of Ordnance to Arrive at
Rock Island Arsenal
A SALUTE DT HIS HOBOE.
Much Importance May Be Attached to
His VUIt Which Is the Klmt lie
Hit Made Away From Washington
Since the War Always Interested In the
Gen. D. W. Flagler, chief of ord
nance, U. S. army, will arrive at Bock
Island arsenal this evening on a visit.
During his stay here he will 1 the
guest of Maj. Stanhope E. Blunt, com
mandant at the arsenal. At 9 o'clock
tomorrow morning a salute of 11 guns
will be tired at the arsenal in Gen.
The present is the first trip Gen.
Flagler has made awav from Wash
ington since the war, during the ex
istence of which he was one of the
busiest men in the departments at
Washington, and le it said to his
credit his administration was such
that it escaped the criticism that has
been the result of the mismanagement
of many of the other divisions of the
significance o( nl, yKit.
The fact that Gen. Flagler has
seixed the first opportunity since the
close of the war to pay a visit to
the arsenal may attach unusual sig
nificance to his coming. The war
proved the test of the arsenal and it
is doubtful if the result proved a
source of greater pride to any official
at Washington than it did to the
former commandant, who has ever
felt a deep interest in the institution.
It is notknown as yet how long Gen.
Flakier will remain at the arsenal.
CITY BED AT THE HOSPITAL.
The J. B. C. Society Plans To Provide
The B. B. C. society, which has
done so nobly in cooperating with St.
Anthony's hospital, has determined
to provide a bed at the institution for
the use of the city, which is soon to
have an ambulance, ami thus Rock
Island, through the enterprise of gen
erous Jiearted women, is to be in a
position to give the unfortunate the
tender care that should be bestowed.
The B. B. C. society has planned to
give a sale of coffee and cake at Mc
Cain's some day next week, the pro
ceeds to be applied in the setting
apart and maintenance at the hospi
tal of a bed in the name of the city of

Mjron Jordan, who for eight years
has leen jointly interested with K.
1j. Eastman in the publication of the

style of the paper will be changed,
and it will appear hereafter as the

guidance the Journal will continue to

Thongh the 6th Illinois volunteers
took as conspicuous a part in the late
war as any regiment that entered the
service, it "participated in no general
engagement, yet it has lost from its
ranks many bright and apparently
strong and healthy young men. The
roll of dead now shows 21 names, and
almost all of the companies have had
occasion to mourn the loss of least one
member. Company A, of Rock Island,
has had two of its'rnenibers taken.
Chaplain Ferris, in looking over
matters with a Monmouth Review
reporter said he had officiated at the
burial of six of the regiment's boys.
Three of them were buried in Qorto
Rico while in the thickest
of the campaign. They "were
laid away under the protecting folds
of the "flag for which they fought,
and it was a sad experience, this
leaving them so far away from home
and friends. He also officiated at the
funeral of a regular army man while
on the island. Since coming home
Chaplain Ferris has twice leen called
to Monmouth, once to burv Lee Over-
felt, and now for Corporal Cornell
Last week he buried Private McKay, of
Company G, who died at his home
near Gafesburg. The chaplain says
it is always a sad dutv, but he is glad
he is in reach and can do what he can
to cheer up the friends and comrades
in these hours of sorrow.

Probably never before in the his

a giggling simpleton, unable to tell
her age or even the county she lived

stand pointed at an elderly sunken
cheeked man Samuel Edwards, her
father and declared he was respon
sible for her becoming a mother. She
said the child was dead. Edwards is
a widower and at the time of his ar
rest last August was engaged in fish
