When the last class had been passed
upon In the judges, Ira Karr and W
A. Rosenfield, there was a voting con
test for the most popular child par
ticipating in the exhibition during th
two days, and Mae Elizabeth Hess car
ried off the honors, receiving a silver
knife, fork and spoon.
The attendance of vesterdav after
noon was even greater than it was the
day preceding. The selling of refresh
ments and fancy work continued live

auspices the show was given, hare sot
been able to figure the net returns,
but they are satisfied they have realiz
ed handsomely, as they so well de
served, from their efforts.
The Helpers' Circle f the King's
Daughters wishes to express its
thanks to the following persons: The
gentlemen who gave their services as
judges, the merchants, the press, the
manager of Turner hall, the Rock Isl
and Club, the In His Name and Silver

W I sc.
As is usual, under the stress of re
verse the Davenport papers are abus
ing their team. Must always win there
or take a roasting.
Xo one is kicking brer the presenl
slump of the Hock Island team no
one but the knocker, and he is the
cause of the entire situation.
The Colts return home Sunday,
meeting Cedar Rapids here for three
games. Then will come in order. Du
buque, Roekford and Davenport.
When you hear the knocker croak
ing about the present poor showing
of the local team, remind him that be
i- the absolute cause of it all and
oii will tell him the truth.
If Rock Island's team were not crip
pled and demoralized and losing too,
in consequence of both misfortunes,
Davenport would le about ready to
make its annual threat of throwing
up the sponge. That town of mag
nificent hotels has the coldest feet of
any burg on the map.
The Davenport Democrat draws
what consolation is to be had in the
following observation after the six
straight defeats nt the hands of Du
buque: "Taken as a whole, the Du
buque team i a fine looking set of
gentlemen and. moreover, are ball
players. Under the able management
of Hunky Hines they are in the best
possible hands and it would not be at
all surprising to find the team in the
pennant race at the close of the sea

in his work of eh aring the indebted

much more successful than hail his

"This son of a despised race is a re
markable character. He was born in
lavery, grew up to manhood as ig

rolled under the flag that was destined
to make him free, and when the con
flict had ended he had demonstrated
the truth of the statement that "the
Lord helps those that help them
selves." Once a free man he sought
to learn. He worked hard in the day

out before the fire iiv had Lincoln,
and studied while the world slept.
As a result he rapidly mastered the
common branches of learning, and be

for nearly three years read Blsckstone

Such was the experience of Mrs. S. H
Newauak Decatur. Ala. "For 3 years,"
-he write.-. "I endured insufferable
pain from Indigestion, stomach and
bowel trouble. Death seemed inevitable
when doctors and all remedies failed.
At length I was induced to try Electric

I improved at once and now I'm com

PAVING HEARING IS
SET IN COUNTY COURT
Legal Battle Against Fourteenth
Avenue Improvement to
Begin June SO.
Heariug on the confirmation of the
assessment roll for the paving im
provement on Fourteenth avenue from
Thirtieth street east to the city lim
its has been set for June -0 in the
county court. The improvement will
be, stubbornly resisted by the pro
perty owners in that taction of the
city, for few of them have escaped a
share of the expense, which has been
apportioned according to benefits de
rived under the proWauons of the new
state law governing public Improve
ments. Heretofore when streets were paved
only those abutting thereon were as
sessed. In the objections to the
Fourteenth avenue improvement ir
regularities arc alleged in the pro
ceedings, but City Attorney 3. K.
Scott holds these are merely trivial.
Even were they well taken, he states
amendments would be permitted. The
main contention of the objectors is
that the city has not the legal right
to charge the cost of an improvement
to thuM' not holding property abut
ting on the thoroughfare to be paved.
