Located Just West of Rapids City Its
Name and Those of Streets Were
Taken From History.
There ard many forgotten things in
our history which it is the province of
the historian to recall to mind. How
many people, for instance, in this local
ity recall the old town at Tippecanoe,
and how few in fact have any idea that
;iich a town ever existed in Rock Is
land county? Yet this town existed,
and for a time flourished, just as did
Rockingham on the Iowa side of the
river down below Davenport. Like
Rockingham, the old town of Tippe
canoe was platted in the year !So5, and
was located just west of what is now
Rapids City in this county. Its loca
tion was only a few miles above Moline.
According to the plat, the town of
Tippecanoe was laid out by David Jen
nings. It had three streets, running
parallel with each other, and named,
respectively, Maine, Harrison and Wal
nut streets. The name Harrison came
from the hero of Tippecanoe, after
-vhom the town was named. Four cross
streets divided the town into blocks,
and those were called Indiana, Ohio,
Washington and Knight streets. Again

he famous hero of Tippecanoe, and
an after president of the United States,
ome in for recognition in the nomen
clature of the street just mentioned.
Main street was (0 feet in width, while
11 of the others were only 50 feet wide.
The lots were all 10x150 feet in size,
and there were 107 of them in the now

A large number of these lots had
been sold and a few had been built'
upon. Joseph Cox, father : ('. C :.;ul
J. J. Cox of Moline, was one -i iii- pro
prietors of the town, and S:;'-i:t.el
Knight, who married a daughter of Mr.
Cox was the other proprietor of the
forgotten hamlet. Samuel Knight mar

of the town of Tippecanoe, Joseph Cox
was one of the first attorneys and coun-selors-at-law
in this county. He had
practiced law in Wayne county. Indi
ana, as early as 1S23, and in 183$ he

FISHES ARE SENSITIVE.
And Vt, Apparently. Tliry Arc Xot
(apalilc vi f SnffcritiK l'ain.
All bsnes have nerves, and m some
respects fishes are extremely sensitive.
A fish that has buried itself in sand or
mud so completely that only the tip of
Its tail fin Is above th j l;jttj::i will feel
even the slightest t inch and instantly
dart out of its randy bed. A lisli is
very sensitive to movements in the wa
ter surrounding it. A shadow falling
upon the water will startle a fish into
flight But, sensitive as fishes are in
some respects, it is probable that they
do not suffer pain from injuries re
ceived. Fishes are extremely sensitive at the
nose. A fish that had in pursuit of
prey run it.i nose against a'Vock might
fdiake its head violently.1 1 'poYhaps in
pain, but fishes sustain serious injuries
from actual wounds without showing
any indication of pain. In fact, the
indications tend to show that they do
A fish that has leen hooked by an
angler, but has escaped, perhaps carry
ing off a hook hi Its mouth, may a few
minutes afterward bite again at an
other hook. Such instances are not In
frequent. In such cases the hook would
probably be concealed by the bait and
the fish would not be likely to see It,
but the fact that it is ready to take the
bait shows that it Is continuing to
feed, which it would scarcely be likely
to do if It were suffering great pain.
A shark from whose body nil the vis
cera had been removed has continued
Sensitive as fishes are about the nose,
many of them use the nose In pushing
stones and gravel alout In building a
nest for the female to spawn In. The
salmon notoriously often wears its
snout down to the bone in excavating
a cavltyfor a nest, and often It wears
off Its tail to a mere stub In brushing
out stopes and gravel. Yet such fishes
frequently recover from their injuries
and return to the ocean.
Timid and sensitive as fishes are in
some respects, they fight one another
rigorously. In such fights they may re
ceive injuries that might le described
as terrible. To these injuries they may
pay so little attention that after the
fight is over they go on with their feed
ing or with whatever occupation they
had been engaged in.
Injuries which would throw a human
being Into a state of helplessness do not
interrupt the current of fish life. The
fish may afterward die from its inju
ries, but apparently it does not suffer
pain from them. . . '
Fishes sometimes survive injuries of
a remarkable character. The stomach
of a captured codfish was found to be
pierced by a spine of a flounder which
it bad swallowed. Theharp-.lhflruUkp
Archbishop Temple was noted for
i is mathematical ability. A peculiar
ity of bis iover, not in computation or
analysis, but in the ability to see a
definite number of objects without ac
tually counting them in the ordinary
sense, is mentioned in Mr. Sandfords
memoirs of the archbishop. Everybody
sees three objects, not as one and one
and one, but as three. Most people
can see four; some see five and even
six. Many of those who think they
simply see six would discover if they
observed the process carefully that they
really make a quick count. I5ut Dr.
Temple certainly saw higher numbers.
I tested him quite suddenly more then
once. "How many sheep in that field?"
Instantly came the answer, "Nine."
Once he saw thirteen. I think these
were birds flying in a group. It was
the same process with him to see nine
or ten volumes in a bookshelf as It
was with nie to see even live. Given
time, without counting, he saw larger
Derivation of "AVliif Sunday.
A perennial problem Is that about the
etymology of Whit Sunday, and the
supporters of Whitsunday could speak
more confidently with their adversaries
If they remembered that the Welsh call
the anniversary "Sulgwyn," which
means "White Sun." This title pre
serves the Druidic tradition that the
sun about this time turus white. Nc
doubt the old British belief arose from
the peculiar white glare of the sunlight
reflected from the hawthorn blossoms,
which must have been far more frnp
pant when south Britain was one vast
forest and a thorn fence formed the
fortification of every village. The pa
gan festival of the White Sun possibly
developed into the "Whitsun Ales."

That the proposed interurban from
Rock Island tnrough the southern end
of the county will receive the hearty
and enthusiastic support of the farm
ers in that section was evidenced by
the manner in which they received the
joint committee of the Rock Island
club and Retail Merchant's association
which made a tour over the proposed
route in company with G. W. Mills, an
eastern capitalist, yesterday.
(irrat AfltantuKei Appurrnt,
The residents fully realize the num
erous advantages which an interurban
Is bound to .bring and wherever a stop
was made the committee and Mr. Mills
were assured that every assistance ia
their power, both financial and, other
wise, would be accorded the new en
terprise. The country is one of the best
in this vicinity and is rich not only in
agricultural resources but in potter's

must be traveled to reach railroad con

An instance of what may be done
with interurban connections is found
in thy fact that Ah Olham, just below
Andalusia, last year shipped 218 car
loads of potter's clay to eastern potter

found at East Liverpool, Ohio and the
supply seems almost unlimited. The
richness of the land, with proper trans
portation facilities, would make the

Mr. Mills proposes to spend the rest

is probably the richest section to be

An incident which was of particular in

the fact that the keeper of the hotel at
