Commissioner Jena 8 Bear who is
nominally in charge of the city water-
: works department, today iegued an in
j viLation to the general public of Rock
Island to visit the filtration plant on
! the hill Sunday afternoon and see for
I themselves the advancement that has
; been made in giving to the city pure
; drinking water since the building of
the plant. Inasmuch as the criming
Sunday will be the last on which Fil
tration Superintendent Lewis I. Bird
sail will be in charge, the day will be
observed as a sort of farewell to him.
Under Mr. Birdsall, the plant has
changed Rock Island's water supply
from the poorest in the Mississippi
alley to the very best and to him
great credit is due.
His accomplishments here were d!
rectly responsible for his being callod
to a much bigger task at Minneapolis
to which city he will' go as soon as he
Is relieved here. His resignation was
to be effective Nov. 1, but he readily
consented' to remain a week or so
i longer if necessary in order that the
city might not be without the services
of an expert until his successor, R. W.
Sharp, arrives. Latest advices from
Mr. Sharp are that he will be here
Nov. 6 or thereabouts.

KEPT AN EYE THE HOUSE.
A Neighborly Act That Resisted In a
Comedy of Error.
A jreiitleinau and his wife occupying
a villa in a Loudou suburb asked a
neighbor to "keep an eye on the place"
while they were away on their an
nual holiday. The neighbor consented
and on the first night of his caretak-
lug noticed a light in the bedroom of
: the presumably unoccupied iiou.se and
i saw the light extinguished,
i Accompanied by a policeman, the
j neighbor made m forcible entrance
through the scullery window, and quiet
ly the two men made their way .to the
bedroom. The light of the constable's

COLD WEATHER PUTS
STOP TO RIVER WORK
Because of the cold wave, river op
erations in the north have been aban
doned for the season by the U. S. en
gineers, according to advices received
at the local office, and the various
forces of laborers have disbanded.
The cold snap, should it continue,
may cause a sudden halt in this vicin-
tty. It has usually been customary for ;
the men to continue the outdoor work
until Nov. 15, and this is the date j
which has been set this fa'.l, but it is
the belief that it will be impossible
to continue operations much longer j
this season unless the cold abates i

One of the most Interesting class of
soldier; of modern times has been the
French corps called the souaves. This
body of daring and picturesquely at

its reputation during the Crimean wsr.
The zouave corps at that time was
supposed to consist of Frenchmen. It I

probable that a majority of its members
were in it more for love of fighting
than for any love of country.
