aside $1,000 for the test of the warer

for some one to make the tests. Yes
terday a conference was held with
Lewis Birdsall, superintendent of fil
tration In Rock Island to see if Mr.
Birdsall could make the tests In a-Jai-tion
to his regular duties in Rock Is
land. If the local official can carry

SHY ON MUZZLES
Owners of Dogs Experience Difficulty
in Procuring Cages for Their
Owners of dogs In Moline have had
considerable difficulty in complying
with the city ordinance requiring that
all canines be muzzled during the so
railed "dog-lays." For many years
past the ordinance has not been en
forced and the result was that the
dealers had few muzzles in stock.
When the orders to provide muzzles
dropped suddenly out of apparently
clear sky, a rush was started which
soon cltkned up the little stock and
many were left clamoring for them.
The dealers sent in rush orders and at
last they are on hand and the necessity

Cheat river. The pursuit was contin

reached, a running fight for four miles
having been kept up along the way.
Here the Confederate commander
stopped to give battle. The banks
were steep, and he chose his position
on Ugh ground. An attempt was first
made to flank him, but this was aban
doned. In .the meantime Colonel
Steedman's Ohio regiment bad given
battle, in which other northern regi

The Indiana troops were ordered to
charge the foe In front, and as the
Ilooslers swarmed up the banks the
Confederates fled. Not only were they
outnumbered, but their ammunition
was almost exhausted. Oarnett fell
while trying to reform his meu. The
Union men lost two killed and ten
wounded, the Confederates thirty kill

Park Commissioner C. F. Gaetjer
has made arrangements whereby the
Denkmann park in the west end of
Rock Island Is to be improved. The
site for the park was given to the city
in 1903 by Mr. and Mrs. F. C. Denk
mann. It is located between Fourth
and Fifth streets and Fifth and Sixth
avenues. With the property, the don
ors gave a sum of money which was
used for filling in and leveling the
property. Mr. Gaetjer has awarded a
contract to George Evans to bring the
property to grade and to improve it
by the laying of cinder walks and

The work till the present time has

new park will soon be able to make
use of the place.

BROTHER MEETS BROTHER:
A CIVIL WAR REMINISCENCE
An Interesting Incident of the clril
war with which a Rock Island citizen
was connected, was recently brought
to light. It Is a story of one of those
many unrecorded experiences of that
struggle In which brothers, fathers
and sons were sometimes found in op
posing ranks, and in which fraternal
feeling proved deeper than the pas
sion engendered by warring factions.
"My brother and I went to war tut
in different companies," said a veteran
to an Argns reporter. "During an en
gagement I was taken captive to Llbty
prison, where I was kept for nearly
eight months. Finally arrangements
were made for an exchange of prison
ers and I was one of the men to b
traded; we were taken by a guard to
Green river whence the trip to City
Point, the place of exchange, wag to
be made by boat. While we were watt
ing to go on board, I was sitting off
to one side screened from the son
by some leaves. The southern officer
tn charge said. Tell that little white
headed fellow to come over here.' 1
was summoned. I walked over anl
saluted, wondering what he could want
"Here is a flO bin, he said. 'As
It is Union money, it Is nojjood to me;
take It and get aboard the boat.'
"I did as I was bid. but kept won
dering in my mind why I shonld be
the one to receive such a gift. I nevei
suspected the reason for many yeai
afterward, but now as I recall the clr
cum stances and the appearances of
the man I am sure that be was my
"My brother was reported to have
been killed during the war and so we
never expected to hear of him again.
When the pension laws were passed,
however, we wrote the wax department
thinking that something was due us
from the war office. After a time an
investigation revealed the fact that my
brother had left the Union ranks ana
gone over to the side of the confed
eracy and that he had become a com
missioned officer of the southern armr-
This incident of the war then cam
back to me and I am now certain that
it was my brother who recognized me
and gave me the money."
