The answer is entirely natural
their wearers have been re

NEW PARTY ORGAN
Republicans Say They Will Have
One if Offer to Buy Union
W00DW0ETH CLUM IS IN DEAL
Washington Newspaper Man Here on
VlHlt Taken Into Camp by
leading republicans who have
grown dissatisfied with the policy of
the Rock Island Union as a party pa
per, to say nothing of its attempt to
run democratic politics, have or
ganized with the declaretl inten
tion of having a aewspaper fash
ioned after their own liking, even it
they have to launch a new one to
compete in the morning field with the
old organ over on Eighteenth street
which has been grinding out the par
ty's tunes these many years.
Woodworth Clum. a political writer
on the stalT of the Washington Post,
who is a son in law of Dr. Carl Bern
hard!, of this city, and is here for a
week's visit en route to cover the na
tional democratic convention at St.
Louis for his paper, has been interest
ed in the deal that the local republi
cans are cooking up. Several meet
ings have been held and a proposition
made to the management of the Union.
Woulal iur'hnr tin- I nlun.
It is stated that the Walter Johnson
estate, the owner of the In ion. has
bee-n given until the end of the pres
ent week in which to arrive at a decis
ion whether it is desired to sell at the
I'gure that has been offered for the
Eighteenth street plant. In the event
of a negative answer it is claimed that
a whole modern newspaper outfit will
be ordered Immediately, (he estimates
having been made up. and another re
publican daily will be on the ground
in time to have a voice in whooping
it up for the ticket in Rock Island
county b-fore the campaign fairly is
gotten under way.
The new paper is claimed to have
the backing of a number of the finan
cially strong republicans of the city,
who are willing to loosen their purse
strings to the tune of several thous
and dollars each that, their patty's
affairs might he dished up as (hey foel
they should be.
Mr. Clum presumably will be the
editorial head if the new republican
newspaper project is to be made a go.
NOVELTIES IN FIREWORKS
FOR THE COMING FOURTH
The celebration of the Fourth of
July that cost the United States more
lives every year than did the battle of
San Juan hill will bring some novel
ties in fireworks and general jubilation
this year. The firms dealing in these
patriotic articles are now displaying
in their windows the red and yellow
papers in which are done up the ex
plosives which render the Fourth a joy
to the youth, a sorrow to the old and
a regret to the judicious.
The novelty of novelties appropri
ately enough is something of Japanese,
although if the Japs are now blowing
Russians skyward, their imported
handiwork is warranted not to blow up
their American sympathizers.
"Hirayama Japanese Day Fire
works " is the name of the novelty. All
are imported from Yokahonia. These
Japanese day firework shells are fired
from mortars or upright guns and ex
plode at 3 great altitude, displaying
various figures of enormous size, such
as gods, goddesses, human figures,
dragons, animals, birds, fish, turtles,
inserts. balloons. lr.nterns. flags,
globes, dice, eggs, rainbows, stream
ers, chrysanthemums, pearls, parasols,
thunderstorms, moons, and many col
ored cloud effects which float on the
air and very gradually reach the
ground, where they will be eagerly
gathered for souvenirs.
These Japanese shells are expen
sive, ranging from $:!2 to $114 a dozen,
but the sellers say the public demands
"Cracker Jack." a formidable name
for a formidable machine. "Search
light Batteries," emitting a pene
trating white mist, followed by a vol
canic eruption of large magnesium
stars: ' whistling volcanoes." heavily
charged cases with fountain fire and
whistling effects combine'! and "navy
batteries." heavily charged batteries,
displaying naval signals, are some of
the new wonders.
The rockets this year will shoot
higher and break more brilliantly than
ever. Electric shower rockets burst
in mid air forming an aurora-borealis
shower of electric Jewels of emerald
and sapphire tints. Telescope repeat
ing rockets release four rockets at a
great height. Then there are colored
parachute rockets, cannon rockets,
ttornbshell rockets, willow tree rockets,
cascade rockets, colore'd cornucopia
rockets, colored jeweled t.treamer
rockets, musical rockets, indeed all
kinds and degrees of rockets.
"The public this year demands col
or, rose, and blue and green and :
pie." raid a dealer yesterday. "So
white lights, however brilliant or in
genious will go. They want as warm
tones as possible, and so nearly everv
firewoork is a symphony in color."
Their penny fireworks novelties will
have a run this year. Peacock pluroes.
grasshoppers, flying devils, soarch
lig'its. golden fountains. go!rtT spray
wheels, miniature surprise boxes. Jap
anese sun wheels. Sant ago soarch
lights and whirling dervishes, are
some of the new devices. They will be
ten favorites of the small boy and will
flare on every flagstone next Fourth
of July night.
REVIEW OF AGRICULTURE
IV ILLINOIS FOR WEI K
While showers have occurred on
several days during the week in Illi
nois, the distribution, both in amount
and extent, has not been equable.
In iortions of the central and southern
districts, the amount has been more
than sufficient, and harvesting, cultiva
tion and farm work have thereby been
retarded, while in most parts of the
northern district precipitation has
been inadequate for the need of grow
ing vegetation, and crops are begin
ning to suffer from lack of moisture.
The temperature has been slightly be
low normal, averaging about 1 degree
below the seasonable average.
The general condition of corn is
.piite favorable. Some fields have been
'aid by. The crop is growing fast, and
Jelds arc mostly clean. Oats are head
ing short and need tain in the north.
-rn district: In the centra! and south
ern districts the crop has improved,
.tnd while- short, the outlook is proniis
Harvesting of wheat is well under
way in the central and southern dis
tricts, and will be in active operation,
arith propitious weather, during the en
duing week. Some complaint is made
osj account of rust, hut the heads are
generally well filled, ami the qualit
f the grain is good, but a decreased
acreage is indicated. Rye and barley
are heading out and will soon be ready
for harvest with promising outlook.
Timothy is heading sk':rt in the
northern district, hut elesewhere it is
tostly showing well. The harvesting
of clover has been retarded, on ac
count of wet weather, in the southern
half of the state. The harvest In the
central and southern districts Will
afford a fair yield, but it will be short
in the northern.
The outlook for blackberries, rasp
berries and grapes is promising. Some
apple orchards may yield a fair crop
but the general prospect for the fruit
and for pears is promising. The fruit
continues to drop at a rapid rate and
many orchards are affected by blight.
Except in the northern district where
rain is needed potatoes are promis
ing. The crop is ripe and being mar

PICNICS WITHOUT "PONIES"
AFTER FIRST NEXT MONTH
On and after July 1 there will be
no more "ponies." The Brewers' as
sociation has so decided, and there ap
pears to be good sense behind the de
cision. They say there never has
been any money in the pony trade. It
has always been a source of expense
instead of profit, and in these days
every cent is looked after in all
branches of business with a sharp eye.
When a party buys a pony keg of
beer a dollar is charged for it. under
the promise that the package shall be
returned when empty. But, alas, for
the truthfulness and the memory of
the ordinary summer crowd. The
pony seldom finds its way back again
to the brewery. It Is worth much
more than the jeer it originally con
tained. When empty some particular
ly humorous member of the crowd us
ually throws it into the river or starts
t at the top of a steep hill to see how
far it will roll, and they never go after
it again. It may be picked up by
some brewery agent and it may not.
More often not.
It is this fact and the further one
that the demand has steadily decreas
ed since bottled beer became so plen
tiful and popular which has decided
