A GREAT MAN'S IDEA.
ENIUS, as Ruskin defines it, is simply
a superior power of seeing. Have you
the genius to see how important an
element in the success
is the use of Ivory Soap? Judged by the work
it does Ivory is the cheapest soap in America
to-day. It is harmless. Embroideries, laces
and delicate stuffs should be washed only
with Ivory Soap.

Interesting bit touching on tho his

called, Maj J. M. Beardsley recently
attempted to sell, claiming them as his
personal property. It is from tbe Con
gressional Record. It is recorded as
bouse bill 195, and was introduced in
January, 1870. by Congressman John
llawley. Tbe measnre was signed by
the president March 9, 1S70. It read:
"That tho steretary of war be and

AUGUST RACES AT THE
DAVENPORT MILE TRACK
The raia has been a great thing
for the Davenport mile track and
makes it certain that with what
more may come and with the
sprinklers the conditions there
will be tine for racing week
after next. The entries for tbe Aug
ust meeting close tonight, and Secre
tary Van Tuyl is contident that they
will show plenty of horsemen coming
here to guarantee a big meeting.
It is proper to say right beie that
the August meeting ought to have
heartier support from tbe Davenport
public than tbe July meeting had
The heat and tho dust were excuse
enough then for the people staying
away, but there will be no srch ex
planation good for a light attendance
this time. If the retail stores close,
and the wholesale houses and factor
ies do tbe same, they would be ac
cording the Mile Track association do
more recognition than it deserves. It
is an open secret that the gentlemen
who have put their money into the
track and carried it for so loog had
about reached the quitting point with
the July meeting. Jf tbe August
meeting does not leave them in a
more cheerful frame of mind tho days
of horse racing on the Davenport track
may be a thing of the past.
Not even tbe city assessor's visits
are more certain than the fact that
Davenport will reg'et the day that
the mile track is turned out to grass.
The fair grounds are gon, and with
the mile track once goue it will be
gone for all time. All that a good
many people of this country know
about Davenport is that it has the
best mile track in the country, and
as an advertisement for the city it
carries the name of Davenport all
over the country every time a race
meeting is held. It brings a lot of
horsemen here on those occasions,
and not a few who are here several
months through tbe training season,
and it results in lots of money being
spent there that makes the meeting a
good thing for tbe town, even from
the sordid point of view of dollars
Tho association makes the welcome
announcement tbat it will give two
roadster races at the coming meeting,
offering $100 for a pacing and $100
for a trotting race. Hordes must bo
driven by their owners and must have
been in their possession binee July 25.
Tne entries will close Aug. 7. Own
ers who want to know more about it
should ask bee ret a ry Vau Tuyl.

Ernst Otto bas arrived back in Dav

if he had been away a century. He
has spent tho last two years in tbe
Lclpsig conservatory, perfecting him
self in composition, counterpoint,
vocal and piano music, and winning
honors right along. He is looking as
if life in Leipsig agreed with him. Mrs.
Olto, who returned home a year or so
ago, in order that tbe children might
have the advantage of the Davenpo't
schools, met him in Buffalo, and tbey
saw tho exposition together. Mr.
Otto says that he wants a brief rest
before getting down to real work
again, and that be has not made his
plans for the future.
