THE ARGUS, FRIDAY, JULY 13, 100(5,
DAY IN THE GROVE
Orangemen's Celebration at Pro
emption One of the Most
Successful Ever Held.
BIG CROWD AND FINE TIME
Good Pre gram of Music and Speaking
rators Deal With Patri
Fine weather anil the biggest crowd.
It is believed, that ever attended the
jf nc, rendered the annual celebration
of the anniversary of the Battle of the
Boyne at Little's grove near Preemp
tion yesterday a great success. Drawn
by the inviting prospects of the
day, the crowd assembled early and
ilie festivities were well under way be
fore the dinner hour. After the happy
.' r:wd had relished their dinners on the
;;rof.u turf, an inviting program was
tendered. The program, after prayei
by Eider, Wesley, was opened with a
few striking introductory words by the
president of the day. John Lester Clark
who succeeded the late J. S. Johnston,
ulio had for many years acted in this
office. Mr. Clark's words on the duties
.f a citizen were well received.
Hope ThuuipMin Talkx.
This was followed by a selection
by Bleuer's brass band, and an ad
dress given by Attorney Hope Thonip-j-on
of Kbek Island.
Mr. Thompson, after referring to the
patriotism that prompted the celebra
tion of the day took up the subject of
political corruption and its cause. He
adduced a line of reasoning to show
that the people are finally to blame be
cause of their allowing unscrupulous
n:en to force themselves into office
because they fail to investigate before
casting their ballots.
Hev. R. B. Williams of Rock Island,
next spoke, devoting himself largely
to a discussion of the principles of true
manhood and from what source they
spring. He asserted that neither an
cestry, political affiliations or business
associations are responsible for man
hood or the lack of it. The quality
springs from the inner self, he said.
MtiRill BimhU lllmHeir.
Representative L.. M. Magill, candi
date for the republican nomination for
state senator, was the last orator,
opening with a historical reference to
the Battle of the Boyne and the causes
leading up to it and ending with a po
litical speech in which he made a gen
eral attack upon gang rule that ho
charged was responsible for most of
the evils in the politics of this state.
At the close of the speaking a con
cert program was given by the band
and the closing musical feature was a
number of selections by the Preemj-
tion Marshal band.

During the summer months children
are subject to disorders of the bowels
which should receive careful attention
as soon as the first unnatural looseness
of the bowels appears. The best medi

Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar
rhoea Remedy as it promptly controls
any unnatural looseness of the bowels.

In accordance with a national move
ment, the C, B. & Q. mail clerks of
Rock Island and other cities are sign
ing a petition addressed to the post
master general asking that many evils
of the service be remedied. Anion
the changes which they are asking for
That the government comply with
the eight-hour law in the postal serv
That the clerks be allowed to hire
substitutes, as was the custom before
That the system of fines be abolish
ed except where positive loss is proven.
That a number of other restrictions be
That the salaries of the clerks be
put n an eriual basis with those of
commercial lines of the same par
allel. I'jiy InMullW'li'Ct t.
The niai! clerks maintain tliat they
ar not receiving the compensation
that they should and that they would
get if in other lines of business. As
a result, many of them are leaving
their runs to go into other business.
Railway mail clerks' salav'es are di
vided into a number of classes. The
lowest grade receive $850 a year, and
so on up to $1,500. The highest salary
they can climb to is $1,500.
The clerks risk their lives on every
run and they, are constantly required
to study in order to keep up with the
advancement of the service. It is a
school and examinations are required
every six months. In view of this,
the money consideration should.be
greater, they say.
Each clerk receives a certain com
pensation tor Ins wor1,;; He has a cer
tain run. Should ?v train be eight, hours
late in arriving at its destination, the
clerk Is vequired to remain on duty the
extla eight hours without additional
Overt line Work ('rati..
There are a number of trains that
are late frequently, as the clerks are
working overtime on every run, and
this they declare is an imposition. If
the eight-hour law is complied with,
the clerks would either be relieved at
the end of that period of time or re
ceive pay for the service he puts in
at the expiration of his eight hours.
In order to demonstrate that the
salaries of the clerks are not equal to
those in commercial lines of the same
parallel, the cases of the Burlington
clerks who have resigned to engage in
other business is cited. In the ast
year eight clerks have severed their
connection with the service.
pro"Da My because of the perhaps-very
small quantity or lmpuruj' rust or
otherwise which It contains. The gold
needle invariably leaves no mark what
ever. Appreciating these facts, efforts
in which surgeons particularly have
been interested have been made for
years to contrive a process for harden
ing gold so that it could be used for
the blades of instruments of surgery
of all kinds.
This is just what Dr. Vaughn has
accomplished after eighteen years of ex
perimenting and research. His method
consists of the employment of heat and
chemicals, but the -tempering process
does not make an alloy of the precious
metal. I'ure gold tempered by this
process remains pure, but the surgical
instruments which Dr. Vaughn is now
manufacturing and which are begin

and by practicing physicians and sur

being as efficient but not as costly as
instruments of the purest grade of tho

moved from its quarters on Third ave

avenue, next door to The Argus build

luminated its sales rooms. The effect
was decidedly brilliant something, in
fact, which it is necessary to see to
appreciate. The establishment is one
of the largest of its kind in the west.
The stock, which was an extensive one
before the removal, has been greatly
added to and now nearly fills the large
building, leaving only room for offices
and work rooms. Both floors are occu
pied, and the building being 150 feet
in length, there are G.00O feet of- floor
space. The upper story is given up to
offices, work rooms and store rooms,
while the half of the lower story at
the rear is kept for stock. Chief in
terest to the public centers in the sales
rooms, which are not excelled in the
west in joint of beauty and comprehen
siveness. There are five rooms fitted
up with every variety of fixture, all ar
ranged so as to be readily illuminated.
Hundreds of incandescents are used
for the purpose. In the rear are two
small apartments, one of which is in
tended to show but one line of fixtures
at a time, which it does to the best ad
vantage. The salesrooms are all finish
ed in weathered oak and in each a dif
ferent and harmonious color scheme
is followed out. The establishment is
one that does great credit, not only to
the proprietors, but to Rock Island as

Sawing steel Is a dangerous process
because of the great power required iu
running the cutting tools in the case of
tempered metal and also because of
the small particles of steel which ure
scattered through the atmosphere and
breathed into the lungs of the work
men. French engineers have recently de
vised a method of cutting steel which
avoids these dangers. A small jet of
oxygen gas is the Instrument employed
and has proved Itself most efficient.
Tlie complete apparatus comprises two
pipes, whicli move along the mark to'
be cut. From the first piie Issues a
jet of mingled oxygen and hydrogen,
producing a flame whicli first heats the
metal red hot. The oxygen jet issuing
from the second pipe literally burns
away the heated metal.
The cutting is very quickly done, the
heat not having time to be dissipated
and no fusion of the metal taking place.
The section is as clean as that made
bv a saw and of no greater width. Tlie
method has a sjeeial advantage In that

It is a common error for dealers to
put too many shoes in their window'.
In fact, some windows would lend the
impression that the stock was iu tho
window and the samples on the shelves.
Said a shoe manufacturer who has
traveled extensively: "One of the most
impressive windows 1 ever saw con
tained lut one shoe in each window.
Kaoh was a fine shoe, mounted on a
standard in the t enter of the window.
From this shoe red and white ribbons
were draped in various directions,
much like a sunburst. A small, neat
sign told the story. Everybody stop
