There is not a riverman in thiB vi
cinity who did. not know Jack Hon
ner. who for many years was a deck
hand on the steamer Sidney and wan
in his way cne of the most genial
characters along the river.
He had Wen a river-rat for a score
of years nearly and had spent most
!t his lite on the river. Did Jack is
dead. The report comes that he was
found dead in one of the river joints
in St. Louis a few days ago and the
belief among authorities who have
investigated the matter is that he
was the victim of murder. The even
ing before the tragedy he and a few
men of the element that he associ
ated with mostly, gathered in the
place which he never left alive, and
while there some trouble arose over
a few women of tarnished reputation
who had entered, and when it was
over Jack was dead. The three or
four men who were engaged in the
brawl at the time and who left the
place, it is supposed, immediately af
ter the murder was committed, have
been arrested, but the principal one
who is believed to have figured most
in the murderous affair is John Far
rel, who has been a fireman on raft
boats on the upper river for quite a

the murder of a man between Reed's
Landing and . Wabasha. It appears
that after Farrel served about ten
years he was pardoned, and it was
largely through the influence of
friends who knew that he possessed
a patent on a threshing machine, the
manufacture of winch could not be
proceeded with unless Farrell was re
leased. Farrel had got a number of
capitalists interested in his scheme
before he had a hand in the murder
which sent him to prison, and thev
could do nothing with the project so
long os tarrel was deprived of his
liberty. It is said that Farrel might
have become a wealthy man through
his patent had he attended to busi
ness, but dissipation and reckless
living put him on the level that he
was u few years Lefore he conceived
the patent and forced him to depend
upon n livelihood by going back to
his old job of fireman on a raft boat
The indications now are that he will

SOCIETY IS GROWING
Odd Fellows Pressing Close on OO,-
Ve are pressing hard on the line
of a 00,000 membership in the sub
ordinate lodges and the quality of
the membership was never higher.
Kays Cirand Master J. R. Kewley, of
Illinois Odd Fellows, in his annual re
port. Few old lodges have been
dropped or suspended temporarily
during the past year, and a number
of new and much stronger ones have
The grand master refers to the Re
bckahs, the auxiliary of the women
to the Odd Fellows, and states that
they are generally prosperous and
"Wherever we find a good Kebekah
lodge we are sure to find a good sub
ordinate lodge." President McKin-
ley is highly eulogized by the master
and anarchy riviled as directly op-
ixsed to the ideals of Odd Fellow
It is suggested in the report that
the Rebekuhs amend the constitution
so that the assembly president may
promulgate and send out the pass
words, as the present system places
that work on the grand master of
the Odd Fellows. 'The legality of the
present system is questioned. This
grand lodge may authorize the as
sembly to levy jer capita tax on the
Kebekah lodges of the jurisdiction
not to exceed a fixed rate, or nt such
rate as may be approved by the
grand lodge frtnn year to eiir. This
was previously done, but of late has
been dropped. Several important de
cisions have been rendered both
from the grand lodge "to the subor
dinate lodges and the Rebekah.s.
During the last year thirteen new
idges have been instituted, but in no
case were less than twenty-nve
names signed to the petition for in
stitution of the lodge. Two of these
were Instituted by the grand master.
Twenty-three Kebekah lodges have
been instituted and the some rule as
to the petition has been carried out
n regard to them.
A tew of the subordinate lodges
and the Kebekah lodges have been
consolidated and a few weak ones
have been suspended, but this occas-
on is limited. The increase is
marked. Five lodges were burned
out during the year but they have
Funds of the Orphans' Home ut
Lincoln to the amount of $4,500 have
been invested in bonds, the latest
maturing in 1921. The board of the
Orphans' Home has changed the fis
cal year to end Oct. 31, so as to
agree with the fiscal year of the
grand lodge. The board of the Old
Folks' Home at Mattoon will ask for
the following appropriations. Ad
ditional appropriations of last year,
$4,500; appropriations for horses and
farm machinery, etc., etc., $8,000, a
total of $12,500. The board of the
Orphans Home will ask for the regu
lar appropriation and the extra one
half of the purchase price of the
land authorized to be purchased at
the last sessions of the grand lodge.
Suggestions offered by the grand
master are: "Do we need a board of
members for each home? Would
not three be enough? At present the
railroad fare of each member present
at each meeting of the 'Orphans
board amounts to $450 and the Old
Folks' Home $482.50." It is suggest
ed to allow the present members to
serve out their time and then de
crease the board to three members.
"AH insurance policies should be in
the corporate name of the grand
lodge with the deeds, etc., deposited
with the grand treasurer."
The report of the Old Folks' Home
at Mattoon shows that fifty-five have
been admitted to membership at the
Home and that six have died there.
There have been five withdrawals and
two discharged. The present mem
bership is forty-one; men, thirty
three and women eight. The oldest
is eighty-six years and the youngest
forty-seven. The appropriations for
the maintenance of the home during
the last year from the grand lodge
and the subordinate lodges have

OUTLOOK IS BRIGHT
Board Expected to Indorse Pro
posed Boys' Department of
Y. M. C. A.
SMALL FUND IS BEING RAISED
Secretary Freeman Encouraged by
Secretary J. S. Freeman is meeting
with much encouragement in his can
vass for funds with which to under
take the installation of a separate
boys department at the local V. M.
C. A. He estimates the cost of fit
ting up three rooms by themselves as
reading and . game rooms and of
maintaining the department with the
extra help required will be about
$'!00 for the first six months. Of this
sum he has already a good portion
subscribed and is working hard to
raise the balance before the matter
is brought up by the board of direct
ors at their meeeting next week.
One peculiarity of Y. M. C. A. es
tablishments in general is that the
larger they become and the greater
proportion of the population of the
locality they have as members the
more difficult it becomes to engineer
their financial affairs. As a rule
they are only about half supporting
and the remainder of the cost of
maintenance has to be raised by sub
scription. With the increase m mem
bership the more various does the
work become and the greater the
wear and tear upon the association's
property, while the income from the
added membership does not begin to
meet the extra expense.
Effect of Recent Addition.
So it has been and is with the Kock
Island association and the 120 new
members who have embraced the ad
vantages of the institution during a
little over the two months past have
brought with them obligations out
of proportion to the $t00 derived
from their admission fees. Funds
for the proposed boys department
must be raised among those who
have already given substantial sup
port to the association proper and
thus it is particulairly gratifying to
note the manner in which the un
expected demand is being met.
Kxperience shows that there is a
period in the lives of boys when it is
most difficult to hold them in the as
sociation and that is between the
ages of 1.1 and 16 years. At that
time they are too large to associate
with the junior members proper and
too small to go into the adult class
es, j lie result is tney cirop out anci
the influence is lost to them at the
most critical time. It is generally
found advisable to subdivide even the
ntermediate class into those whose
age.H run from jo to is years ana
again from i:i 1o 16 years.
Koomi to be Set Apart.
Secretary Freeman is planning, in
case the directors look witn favor
upon his proposition, to set i.part the
present boys' room west of the
main office and the chapel with the
little office between them for the
;se of the one who is in charge of
the boys' work. The boys' rooms
will be open from 3:30 to 0:30 five
days in the week and all -day on Sat
urday, and during those periods it
will be necessary for them to be
ept under constant supervision.
Socials for the younger members will
be made a feature and extra classes
n both bible and gymnasium work
will be opened for them.
The recent withdrawal of the Mil
waukee road from the arrangement
that existed between the Chicago &
St. Faul road means a great deal to
the people who live at the main
points on the lines of road that run
between Chicago and St. Paul. The
service which formerly consisted of
13-hour schedule will be reduced
to ten hours or an nverage or a
miles a nhour, including stops. -The
mail trains are at present running
on the ten hour schedule. The Mil
waukee has contracted for nine high
speed pasenger engines of the Atlan
tic type with 7-foot drive wheels,
double-truck, trailing wheel' under
tire box. The water tanks will have
a capacity of 7,000 gallons. These
engines are built for strength and
speed, and can make 73 miles an hour,

The survey of the proposed elec
tric road from Davenport to Iowa
City by way of Buffalo and Blue
Crass and a number of small places
between the last named village and
he university town has begun. The
survey, wnicn is stated to oe a pre
liminary one, was commenced on
Rockingham road, where the highway
crosses the tracks of the Burlington
road. The route of the line will, ac
cording to present plans, run along
Hockingham road to. a point opposite
Fairmount cemetery, a little west of
the site of the crematorium, thence
southwest, to Buffalo by a course be-
ween the Bluff road and the tracks
of the southwestern division of the
lock Island. From near the ceme
erv the line is to traverse the farms
of Francis J. Schaefer, John Jacobs,
H. Eckmann and J. Both and others,
passing close to the tract held by the
Davenport Improvement company.
From Buffalo the road will proceed
direct to Blue Grass, following a ra
vine. From Blue Grass the course of
the line will be pretty straight to
Iowa City. The whole length of the
route will be about 55 miles. It
would seem to a casual observer that
to go to Buffalo and Blue Grass in
order to reach Iowa City is a round
about way. 'ihis is explained on the
ground that the line can be con
structed at much less expense as
planned than if it were to proceed
directly to Iowa City from Daven
port. The grade is said to be good
to Buffalo and also between that
town and Blue Grass, whence it will
be easy running to the other end of
A gang of surveyors in charge of F.
B. Xash, assistant engineer of the
Ilurlington road, are surveying at
present in Lee county. The newspa
pers are speculating as to the mean
ing but can get no information as the
men refuse to talk. They started at
Shabbona, DeKalb county, and at last
accounts were at Amboy in Lee coun
ty. It is thought by some that the
plan is to shorten the company's line
between Chicago and Kock Island
At present traffic between the two
cities must be bv way of Galesburg

what the LaMoille Gazette says.
speaking of the survey:
"The Burlington survey from Men-
dota to Moline is now Hearing com
pletion. The line passes north of La
Moille about one mile, through Capt.
Smith's farm, and crosses the branch
near the Bureau creek bridge, about
1 Vl miles northwest of town and
passing south of Ohio two miles and
on west along the old Indian bound

INSPECTORS CLOSE THE SEASON
Kleveu L.es Steamers Passed t'pon Than
Capt. .1. B. Knapp and Capt. James
Sherman, the steamboat inspectors
for this district, have wound up their
work for this season. These in
spectors have charge of what is
known as the Dubuque district, which
extends from Keokuk to lied Wing.
The first boat they insjiected was the
ferry Wabasha, which runs between
Wabasha. Minn., and the Wisconsin
shor.. This boat was inspected on
Jan. 3, and the last boat inspected
was the MegidJo. the mission boat
built at Clinton, which they inspect
ed Inst Friday. During the entire
season they inspected 11S boats and
nve barges. All barges used for car
rying passengers of 100 tons burden
or over must be inspected.
The number of boats inspected dur
ing the year 1900 was 129, which was
11 more than this year but this does
not mean that there were that num
ber more steamboats in the service
last year than this season. It might
havt happened that several boats
which travel up and down the river
all season were inspected above Ked
Wing, which is out of the Dubuque
district. This would account for the
shortage this season over last year.

When things are "the best" they
become "the best selling." Abraham
Hare, a leading druggist, of Belle
ville, O., writes: "Electric Bitters
are the best selling bitters I have
handled in 20 years." You know
why? Most diseases begin in disor
ders of stomach, liver, kidneys, bow
els, blood and nerves. Electric Bit
ters tones up the stomach, regulates
liver, kidneys and bowels, purifies the
blood, strenghtens the nerves, hence
cures multitudes of maladies. It
