graph 12 of the company's franchise,
v hich is published in the daily press.
The company binds itself under con
tract to furnish service from 12,000
telephones before it asks a cent of
rental from its subscribers.
It will cost more than two and one
half millions of dollars to build a tele
phone plant of this size.
1 he company can not collect a cent
from the citizens of Rock Island until
the; have spent this vast sum. If
the company does not give the best
service at the lowest rates and give
the public a square deal, they will
leave us and go to the old telephone
company. If our subscribers should
leave us our investment of millions of
dollars would be ruined so It Is up to
us to be good and treat the public
right and give the best service.
With this vast amount ot money in
vested and the trust's millions invest
ed on the other side it will mean a
fipht to the last ditch and the citizens
will reap the benefits of low rates,
excellent service and courteous treat
ment. We do not fear the outcome in the
slightest, our competitor with tremend
ous over-capitalization and old style
equipment can never compete in eith
er quality or price. We know the
citizens of Rock Island will treat
us fair if we treat them the same.

would try in a thousand ways to divert
attention from himself, aud among

ed for a pinch of snuff. Not less than
four, and even six, snuffboxes dis
appeared in thin manner during n sin
gle sitting, and it was not till he had
left the council chamber that he be
came aware of the larceny. So con
firmed was this habit that some of the
councilors, whose snuffboxes were
heirlooms or presents from fbreigu
princes, hit upon the expedient of car
rying cheap papier mache or wooden
boxes for the emperor to pooket. The
snuffboxes, however, always return
ed to their owners and in doing so
were often found to have undergone
a very pleasant metamorphosis. By
some necromancy a wooden or tor

One Specie Produce a Sound Like
the Snap of a Whip.
One does not think of butterflies as
making any sounds, nor of caterpillars
as noisy creatures, yet according to the
late Samuel Hubbard Scudder in
"Frail Children of the Air," the care
ful student will find some use for his
ears when observing the habits of
both. Says the anthor:
It Is a fact th.it certain butterflies
produce sound during certain move
ments. The "whip" butterfly when
surprised makes a noise like the snap
of a lash by opening and shutting its
wings in quick succes--ioa. Some hi
bernating butterflies when disturbed
make a faint hissing sound by alowly
depressing and raising their wings.
The noise thus produced resembles
that made by blowing slowly through
