midline, will have charge. A solid
week will be put in in the duties of
camp life and the boys expect to be
much more soldier-like when they re
turn than when they went away.
Have New Iul forms
The Cth will present a very neat ap
pearance this year on dress parade.
The men have just received their new
uniforms corresponding to the regu
lations under the Dick bill. The uni
forms for Company A came only yes
terday. They include, everything
trousers, blouses. caps. leggings,
campaign hats, etc. Therefore the
company x ill expect to present a
very natty appearance when it lines
up to march to the train this even
ing. So far no service uniforms have
been issued, but it is expected they
will be furnished at camp. Then for
the first time in years the luxury of
two uniforms will be realized.
Company A is in good condition and
lias been drilled with especial regu
larity and care lately in preparation
for the tour of camp duty. There are
just "') men in all, including the three
commissioned officers-. It is expected
the full company will go to camp, the
regulations in this respect being more
strict than previously.
The company's roster is as follows:
Captain V. T. Kanson.
First Lieutenant Edwin II. Duna
vin. Second Lieutenant Bernard A.
First Sergeant Harry L. Coyne.

DID NOT KNOW THERE WERE
SO MANY KINDS OF CRACKERS
They are telling a joke on a waiter
in a local hotel, the truth of which
is vouched for by a number of repu
table citizens. The other day a gen
tleman went into the hotel in ques
tion and ordered, broiled lobster. In
due time it was served, but when he
came to diiscuss it he found that the
necessary instruments for its dissec
tion were wanting. Accordingly he
summoned a waiter and called for a
lobster cracker. The waiter hesitated
a moment and then ventured the in
formation that there was no. such
thing in the house. "O, well," said
the guest, "a nut cracker will do.
Bring me a nut. cracker." Th? waiter
looked still more disconcerted. The
reputation of the house was at stake.
The painful admission had to be
made, however, and finally it came:
"I beg pardon, sir; we have no nut
crackers, either; but we have plenty
of oyster crackers."

CAR USED BY LINCOLN WILL
BE SHOWN AT ST. LOUIS
Many from this city who were vis
itors at the Chicago world's fair re
member the old Lincoln car. It stood
outdoors in the Transporta t ion sec
tion; an antique, short-bodied, small
windnwed, dingy little old thing,
weather-worn and rough with peel
ing paint, and as far out-of-date as
the oft-caricatured old maid with the
corkscrew curls would be at a Fifth
avenue ball. It got its name from the
fact that it was so much used by
President Lincoln. It was irsiected
with curiosity and interest by thous
ands, and' its. stilT. straight, narrow,
uncomfortable old seats were tried
by half the people who entered it. It
brought to the mind the sort of ac
commodations they used to have in
the times before the war when they
went railroading. The old- car has
been for many gears' the property of
the I'nion Pacific rood, and as such
was shown at Chicago. It has stood
down in the yards at Omalm, nncared

the people of the whole country ven

years the car has stood on the tracks

has attracted scarcely passing notice

WHERE THE DAVENPORT
GAMBLERS WILL "LIGHT"
In Davenport it is said the gamblers
who had only settled down to do a
profitable 'business there after lei.g
forced to quit by the reform wave
that swept through the tity in ibe
early spring have decided to capitu
late to the latest moral movement and
will leave town. The spies of the re
formers, it is claimed, are so actie
that no gambler can operate his busi
ness in safety any longer, and as the
gamesters have no standing before
the law, no rights that others are
bound to resiH-ct in their chosen call
ing, they will not endeavor to make
a stand but will iaek up and get out.
If this threatened movement takes
place count upon it that Bock Island
will get the full benefit. Ve alwa s
have before and we undoubtedly will
this time. No one has heard any com
plaint from the gamblers on this side
of the river lately. They seem to be
eating regularly and that worried
look that lasted several months aflc r
the grand jury was so active has en
tirely vanished. Business must be
reasonably prosperous as it is, and if
the Davenport people who have mon
ey they want to loose will agree to
come over to this side of the river to
do it, we might crowd over a bit and
make room for some of the Davenport
gamblers to ply their trade here.
