The leasing of the old half-mile
race track on .Ninth street is but pre
liminary to an effort to interest the
merchants and manufacturers ot
Rock Island and Moline in reestab
lishing a county fair here in the coun
ty seat ana securing it as a permanent
fall feature for Hock Island.
It is estimated that with the prop
er amount of advertising, judicious
Dandling and the cooperation of cit
izens generally, fully 30.000 visitors
would come to Hock Island to attend
the exhibition. Not only would the
residents if the county attend, but
people from adjoining counties would
be glati to avail themselves of the ail
vantages olrered by the railroads, and,
with the addition of the intcrurban
roads now running or in contempla
tion, travel becomes so much more
attractive and simple that it is a
'coinpai atively easy matter to have
the suburbs for a few days' outing.
Itenefit to City.
A county fair is possibly of more
direct benefit to a city than any oth
er gathering, inasmuch as nearly all
branches of trade are gainers. The
liverymen would, of course, board and
l:eep many horses, whose owners
would drive into town and remain
one or more (lays. The restaurants
would feed many thousands. Visitors
would postpone purchases until this
trip, thus aidiilg all the retail mer
chants. The hotels would be filled
with sightseers and representatives
of manufacturers and exhibitors who
would come here to champion the
merits of their articles.
The prime movers in this enterprise
are C S. MeDaniel, secretary and gen
eral manager of the Rock Island
Buggy company, and W. A. Uosen
field, who have succeeded in interest
ing a number of citizens prominent
in affairs which tend to the future
welfare i;f th city.
Propose to Incorporate.
It is the purpose of the gentlemen
interested to incorporate a stock
company and make the needed im
provements on the track and adjoin
The fair at .Toslin. which is the only

would doubtless be welcomed.' Prob

would be willing to discontinue their

WILL RENDER TUESDAY
Theobaldi, "the wizard of the vio
lin," who appears at the Augustana
colli ge chapel next Tuesday evening,
is said to be the greatest living- in
terpreter of descriptive music on the
violin in the world. Abroad his fame
is widespread, and he has been called
upon to give private concerts before
a number of the crowned heads of Eu
rope. The program he will render
will be as follows:
.1. "A Visit to the Mountain, , Ole
Hull, (original composition.)
2. (a) Introduction to the Violin,
(concert etude-) Nieolo Paganini.
(called the Paganini Witchery).
(c) Trilie do Aptgiando De, ablo,
(e) Motto Perpetuno, (concert Al

den's song and coaxing sound of the

flageolette spring dance. Brook in
the woods, echo, lowing of cows and
bleating of scheep longing , for home.
Tones of the lur, tinkling of cow
bells, heards passing by and the sound
of bells dying away in the distance.
Hushing waters, mill wheels creaking,
wind sighing and laves rustling in
the woods. Pizzicato

There's nothing like doing a thing
