COOK GETS IN TROUBLE
AND BIDES IN AMBULANCE
Frank Karnair, a cook, took of
fense at the remarks of some bovs
that were evidently addressed at him
while on Market square late Satur
day afternoon and he pounced upon
the 11-year-old son of T. J. McKennan
to chastise him. The boy dodged in
to the feed store of R. C. Benson
where. Mr. Benson and others took a
hand and headed off the pursuit. In
the tussle which followed Karnair
was pushed backwards over a bale of
hay and his head struck with consi.l
erable force 011 Ihe floor. The fall
stunned him and after some attempts
at resuscitation had failed, the am
bulance was called and the uncon
scious man was removed to St. An
thony's hospital in care of Dr. Fos
ter. Here, after a couple of hours,
he revived and during the night was
released and went about his way.

.he Moline hiffh school team nnrl
rooters went home Saturday evening
with something to talk about after
the game of football in this city.
With all their advantage of weiirht
and experience they had been played
to a standstill, tied, with the score
G to G, and left at the end of the con
test fighting on the defense in their
The visitors were at least 15
pounds heavier ner man than the
Rock Island boys, and there was very
little division of opinion on either
side at the beginning 'as to the out
come, the only question unsettled in
the minds of most enthusiasts being
the size of Moline's score. And there
was no occasion for unyone to change
his mind till after the team from our
sister city had made all the points
it had coining.
Saturday was an ideal day for the
game, although rather uncomfort
able for those who were watching.
Rooters from the two schools were
about equal in numbers, and all were
tuned up to concert pitch. Within
eight minutes of the beginning of the
game, which was not started till
nearly 4 o'clock, Moline had forced
the ball steadily across the field, sent
Arrell through for a touchdown and
Kelting had kicked a goal. After
Kock island had kicked on a second
time things assumed a different as
pect. Ihe visitors were evidently
somewhat winded, and Rock Island
went after them with a vim that
could not be resisted. The forma
tions of the home team operated like
clock work, and were executed with
a speed that surprised even theirmost
sanguine admirers. Alter a lew min
utes of this sort of thing Oberg went
through center and crossed the visit
or's line and Clark tied the score by
kicking the goal.
Once again during the half Moline
came within a lew ieet or scoring,
but was held and pushed buck out of
danger. In the second half dusk was
falling rapidly, and after the oppos
ing sides had see-sawed back and
forth across the field without either
being able to secure any pronounced
advantage, the game was called on
account of darkness, with the ball
in uock Island possession on -Mo-
lino's 20-ynrd line and three minutes
of the half unplaved.
The game places the high school
teams of the three cities as nearly
on a par as it is possible for three
different elevens to be. They have
played all around. In their first game
with Davenport Rock Island s players
were at such an obvious disadvantage
in the matters of size and practice
that they did exceedingly well to
hold Davenport down to two hard-
earned touchdowns. In the next
game Moline and Davenport plaj-ed
to u tie in the latter city, with the
Fcnrc' the same as was made here
Saturday. Of the three teams Moline
is perhaps a trifle the heaviest, but
Davenport is 10 or 12 pounds heavier
than Rock Island and -much better
experienced in the game. The line

CALLING THE STATIONS.
Llttla Mistakes That Sometimes Occur In
Their Frequent Repetition.
"occasionally, said a man, "one
bears a guard on the elevated road call
the next station back instead of the one
ahead. Coming down on the Sixth nve-
duo road, for instance, he might, un
leaving Grand street, look in and say.
'The next station is BlGecker street,'
when he meant Franklin. Still, this is
rarely done, not nearly so often as one
might think it would he, by men call
ing the stations over and over again all
day long. To be sure it might seem that
the names would be by frequent repeti
tion so deeply graven on their memory
that there would be tbo less danger cf
calling them wrong, but what I sup
pose happens is this that sometimes
the mind unconsciously switches over.
and the guard calls from the up list in
stead of the down, or vice versa.
"Sometimes when a guard miscalls a
station he lets it go perhaps be doesn't
think -of it himself. Sometimes be cor
rects in a mild tono of voice, as though
the least said abont it the better. Some
times he sets it straight clearly and un
mistakably. I rode up town the other
day ou a Sixth avenue Harlem train
with a guard who, as the train left Forty-second
street, looked in and said,
Fiftieth next. Fifty-eighth street train.
change there for Harlem. ' But the next
minute he looked in again and said,
with equal if not greater distinction and
deliberation, 'Fiftieth next, Harlem
train, change there for Fifty-eighth
"Here was a case that was a little
different: A newsman who got off a
Sixth avenue train with a bundle of pa
pers at Fifty-third street handed a pa
per to the guard and asked him to give
it to the ticket chopper at One Hundred
and Thirty-fifth street. The guard look
ed into the car as tbe train started and
said, 'Hundred and Thirty-fifth street
next,' but this was so far off that it
really needed no correction, and very
reasonably the guard let it go at that,
but ho smiled a he closed the door." -

THE OLD MAN.
Its Significance as Applied to the Bead of
the Business House.
Were I the head of a large concern
or the responsible executive officer cf a
great corporation, whether my age were
37 or ?2, I should want all of my em
ployees or subordinates to call me "The
Old Man." Not, cf course, to my face
or when they were addressing me, bat
among themselves or when thoy spoko
of me to their friends.
"Hia Majesty," "His Royal High-
cess," "His Excellency" and the like
all indicate that the persons to whom
they are applied possess power, but in
this commercially democratic age and
country the one appellation of undisput
ed autocracy is "The Old Man."
Applied to the head of a concern it
frequently indicates love, generally re
spect and always complete submission
to authority. It is as free from any sug
gestion of age as is "reverend. " It is
never given when there is a question of
authority or a smoldering rebellion
When "The Old Man" says a thing,
that settles it; there are no questions to
beatked; there, is no comment to be
made. When "The Old Man" does some
thing, or fails to do something, there is
no criticism to be indulged in..
"The Old Man" is the one person
about the establishment who is absolute
ly hia own master, whose coming in
and 'going out are unhampered, whose
encouraging word carries real weight,
aud whose reprimand indicates real dan
ger, to whom "sir" is n right and not
Long live "Tbe Old Man!" And
when, through hia half closed private
office door, he bears the boys term him
thus kindly, let bim congratulate him
self that loyalty is in hia service and
that he has attained the acme of dignity.
The Greatest of Rivers.
The Amazon ia the king of streams.
From first to last it receives over 1,200
tributaries, of which more than 100 are
large sized rivers and rise so far apart
and have their floods and ebbs at such
different seasons that the Amazon is at
about the same height the year around.
At some points cn its lower course one
bank is invisible from the other. The
beholder seems to be looking on a great
yellow sea of freshwater. When discov
ered, some tribes of Indians on the low
er portion knew nothing of the existence
of the opposite shore and did not believe
that it existed, saying that "tbe great
river flowed all around the world. " Its
mouth, including that of the Para, is
160 miles iu width, and it is navigable
for large sized ocean steamers for 1,000
miles from the sea, aud so vast is the
flood that the ocean is tiDged yellow for
400 miles from the coast of Brazil. St.

Of all the sovereigns of the world the
shah of Persia is said to possess the
largest treasure in jewels and gold or
naments, it being valued at $60,000,
000. The chief object of value is the old
crown of Persian rulers, in the form of
a pot of flowers, which is surmounted by
an uncut ruby the size of a hen's egg.
Tbe diamonds in another symbol of his
rank are said to weigh almost 20 pounds.
There is also a jeweled saber, valued at
11,600,000. Another thing that the shah
prizes is a silver vase ornamented with
100 emeralds, whose equals, it is said,
are not to be found in tbe world. In tbe
collection there is a cube of amber which
tradition says fell from heaven in the
days of Mohammed and insures the pos
sessor againat bodily harm.
