Kxhibiln the Feature.
For the first tima in the history of
the conference, there will be an ex
hibit in connection with the conven
tion. The work of the slate institu
tions will be shown, and the commit
tee has secured the use of the roonn
in the public library building for
these exhibits. This will be an im
portant feature of the convention and
will prove highly educational, not only
to the public, which will be admitted
without charge, but to delegates to
the conference. The exhibits will
show the actual work turned out by
the inmates of the various state penal
and charitable institutions, and will
be somewhat of the character of the
exhibits of the Watertown hospital
fair this week, although possibly on
a less extensive scale.
The work of the conference will be
explained in the churches, and ar
rangements have been made for the
conference to supply the pulpits of the
different Rock Island and Moline
churches Oct. 11.

STORY 0- ARSENAL.
(Pontinupil from Page Nino,)
the level of the floor, is the entrance
to an unexplored chamber, approached
by a narrow passageway down through
a hideous stone stairway. The party,
after repeated efforts to effect an en
trance, were obliged to abandon it. In
plainly defined Indian characters it
bears the significant inscription, "All
hope abaudon ye who enter in," an ad
monition which, while it tended only
to incite and increase the curiosity of
the explorers, was wisely heeded.
The knowledge of this ancient and
interesting race does not seem by any
means to have been confined to stat
uary and sculpture. Their weapons
and the jewel ornaments with which
their persons were adorned, though
principally of copper, are in some in
stances finished with gold and silver
carved in the most exquisite manner
conceivable, indicating mechanical
genius and scientific attainments of
the highest order. The luxury and re
finement of an enlightened civilization
are clearly delineated in these myster
ious images and devices, rather than
the wretchedness, ignorance and super
stition of a semi-barbarous race, as em
inent authors of the present age have
surmised, previous to its discovery by
Columbus to have been inhabited by.
SrrlouH to the F.nd.
At present the strictest vigilance s
observed at the cave, no person being
allowed to enter it without permission
from one pr more of the explorers,
who are all at present the favored
guests at the Rodman house.
We congratulate the exploring party
and the scientific association they rep
resent for having, in defiance of the
perils of the adventure and of the ruth
less ravages of time, brought to light
these monuments of ancient grandeur I etc
and magnificence, and our gratitude at
being furnished for publication the de
tails of researches so thrilling and as
tounding in their character is only
equaled by the absorbing interest
which we feel confident our readers
will experience in their perusal.
During the interval of proceeding
further with their investigations, we
understand it to be the intention of
the party having the relics in their
possession to ship the movable portion
of them at once to New York, if per
mission from the war department for
their removal can be obtained.
A Sure Enough Knocker.
J. C. Goodwin of Reidsville. N. C.

few rounds. Not even .. scar remain
