IDEA IS NOT A POPULAR ONE.
That of the Jay Town Advertising Recep
tacle Scheme Proposed.
It is doubtful if a proposition has
ever come before the city council that
has met with more general disappro
val than the proposed advertising
waste paper receptacles. The con
sensus of opinion seems to be that
if Rock Island needs boxes of this sort
distributed throughout the city, the
council should order them and tbe city
own tbem; that Rock Island has
grown too great to permit concessions
of this kind for cheap advertising.
Cities of this class do notaward privi
leges that involve the disfiguration of
attractive street corners for the sake
of providing a matter of convenience.
If the boxes are desirable let the city
take care of it. People have given to
the beautitication of Rock Island
streets and park?, and they want no
dickering with schemers with a
view to adding anything that is not

Thomas I Prendle, for 35 years a
doorkeeper at the executive mansion,
used frequently to accompany Presi
dent Lincolu on his walks about town
and has many interesting things to tell
nf that great man, whom he believes to

world has ever known.
On one occasion Prendle; was walk
ing with the president down a flight of
htcps at the navy department when
they came suddenly upon a man Mho
was evidently endeavoring to hide him
self in si dark corner ut the bottom of
the staircase. Observing the stranger
mid fearing he meant harm to the
president, Prendle essayed to place bis
body in a position to protect his com
panion. Mr. Lincoln, however, lifave .and
fearless as always, stepped forward
mid closely scrutinized the man, who
ran rapidly up the steps and, turning
squarely around when he reached the
top, looked down upon the president,
who did not falter, but continued to
gaze sharply at him. On their return
to the White House Mr. Lincoln said
quite calmly, "Prendle, do you know
