Without a doubt the sentiments of
the majority of Hock Island's self
respecting citizens will agree that it
represents an industry that our sister
city is welcome to claim precedence
in. Located, in the first place, where
it had no business to be, its character
as a nuisance and an eyesore was
overlooked by .Mayor Knox and a
ntimbcr of instances in which the li
cense of its proprietor should h;ive
been declared forfeited were passed
over without action.
City Clerk Art
There is little doubt that
the license would have been
renewed, upon it expiration ' had
it not been for the stand taken by
City Clerk Schaffer, who, felt called
upon to assume executive powers in
order to bring about an abatement of
t he nuisance.

By a simple device, the invention of
an architect of Minneapolis, Minn., it
will be an easy matter to ascertain the
speed at which an automobile or other
vehicle to which it is attached travels.
The device, which is named the Hodg
son speed indicator, consists of a dou
ble dial with index hands which are
moved automatically from the running
gear of the machine.
The Indicator, says the New York
Herald, Is applied at either front or
rear wheel between the wheel and the
body of the vehicle. The double dials
show the speed from either side. The
Index hand' travels forward and re
cedes, keeping pace with the present
spoiHl of the vehicle, while behind the
iudex hand is another, which travels
forward so long as the spenl continues
on the Increase, but remains station
ary when the machine slows up or
stops for thrc to. five minutes, when
It is released and flies back to the pres
ent position of the first named index
The Index hands are moved by cen
trifugal expansion of heavily weighted
arms In the mechanism. The device's
accuracy and reliability, it is claimed,
cannot be affected by dust, mud, mois
ture or frost. It is easily'adjusted to
different sized wheels.
The dial and figures are made large
enough to be easily seen by a person
standing at. a distance of several feet

What is believed to be the largest
phosphorescent insect known to exist
has bevMi shipped to Professor Charles
W. Wood worth, the University of Cali
fornia entomologist, from Madeira, by
a woman who discovered it and has
been In corresixindence with the agri
cultural department in regard to her
valuable find. The Insect Is three and
a half inches long, exceeding all other
phosphorescent varieties that have ever
been studied. The largest one previous
to this was a specimen two inches long
found in the eastern states. Neither
the name, singles nor genus of the new
insect can be determined. It conies at
an opportune time, however, for scien
tists are at present making careful in
vestigations in phosphorescence in the
hope of discovering the secret of ob
taining light without heat.
X liny In DruiUlry.
A Hrooklyn dentist is making use of
the X ray with considerable success.
It occasionally happens that the sec
ond, or permanent, teeth of j-hildren
and even adults are not properly "cut."
The result is that the mouth is disfig
ured by the loss of the first teeth (or
the possible retention of the nt) and
the nonappearance of the second teeth.
By the use of the X ray the dentist is
able to discover If the second tooth is
in the gum and If so why It has nor
apjieared. The obstruction is removed
and a passage ojiened, and gradually
the tooth works down into its proper

The fur trade of the world is concen

is a great raw fur market, but two
thirds of its transactions are sales to
Leipsic's manufacturers. The chief
trade Is In astrakhan furs from Bok
hara, which are worth when made up
more than $3,(HK).tMm each season. Sa
Ide skins, 50.000 in number, worth ?30
to $100 each, are next in importance.
White fox skins, worth ?500,ooo, are
used, and about 2.000.000 Russian

Ifovel Postal Device.
An Indiana man has invented a de
vice for use in the rural free delivery
work. It consists of small boxes run
ning on wires from the postoffice to
various farmhouse3 and is so arranged
that when the mail is placed in the box
at the postoffice the carrier automat
ically travels to its destination, de
posits the mail and then returns to
the starting point. The inventor, it is
said, is not over twenty years of ago
and has been offered a large sum for
the Invention In question.
