Molina presents a peculiarly unfortu
nate case of domestic scandal. Two
months ago a young m m from that city,
a moulder by trade, we'l to do and Indus
trious, a brother to one of the city alder
men up there, married young lady from
this city, who had pri viously been em
ployed in one of the best of the down
town families in Rock Island. The bap
py ceremony was the culmination of a
five months' courtship, and the young
people thus united seemed to re
joice in each other's companionship
and the little bark wh ch bore them out
on life's sea seemed to Lave been launched
under the most auspio ous circumstances
imaginable. The groom expended much
pains and pride in the preparation of a
cage for his bird at Bloline and thither
he flew with her. All went merrily as
the marriage bell itself, for a time, but it
was not long to exist. A few days since
a stranger invaded the happy home of
the young couple, an apparently inno
cent, inoffensive little creature, but dis
turbing qualities enough to cause a
breach of domestic 1 appiness and an
abrupt and final sepantion between hus
band and wife, whoa a honeymoon had
only fairly commenced.
The husband declares that he has been
basely deceived in his wife, that ha had
always entertained only the purest
thoughts toward her, that he looked upon
her as a lady and had ulways treated her
as such. He disavows paternity to the
miniature intruder, swears it is not built
in his image and therefore renounced his
wife and fled from her.
A LADY'S VIEW.
The Danes Not Dlmtahed la Popalar
lty by Mr. Harqete' Bern The
Hospital Alone Aflreied.
Kock Island, Feb. 9 Before the sub
ject of dancing at tie charity ball is
dropped I wish to express the opinion of
at least one woman who is in no way
connected with the management of the
First. I think the ladies of the hos
pital guild have a rij'bt to feel that the
remarks of Mr. Marquis were more of an
attack upon their woik than upon danc
ing itself, because da icing parties have
been repeatedly given and dancing clubs
and classes formed by the members of
his flock. It seem inconsistent that
dancing for mere pleasure in private
houses should go unn bilked, or at least
so mildly rebuked, that they have not
been stopped, while dtneing at the char
ity ball, which would encourage good
women in a noble w rk, has been so
severely censured as t) cause it to be a
Second. I know that more evil
thoughts have been put into innocent
mind by the sermon, than would have
been implanted by yeiire of dancing.
1 hird. The loss sustained by the hos
pital guild is great, as Btated li last
night's Arous. The bulls in former years
have netted $500 and $700 to the
Kuild. This year the sin is but little
over $100. Howevei if a great "social
evil" (granting for a moment that it is a
social evil), nas been put down, a mere;
money loss is not to r considered. But
has this been done? No. Vbe reply has
been made more than once "In time it
will all blow over, but just now I don't
want to seem to oppese our pastor." "I
didn't go to the-cbari y ball, but I don't
intend to give up darcing. '
Fourth. If I uudr-tood Mr. Marquis,
he is not opposed to the stately minuet
nor the dignified quailrille. Then, since
be thinks the work cf raising money for
the hospital laudible, why could not the
members of his congregation have gone
to the ball and shown their principles by
steadfastly refusing to join in the "soul
destroying altz " As dancing is an evil
which began very ea: ly in bible days, the
reform must come si wly. It cannot so
be choked in a day, dor by a staple ser
mon. X Y. Z.
Two fraudulent grt enbacks.or pieces of
government currency rather, that bad
been tampered with, were turned into the
bank of Mitchell & Lynda today by dif
ferent drivers on thi Thirty-fifth street
line of the Rock Ialaid and Moline street
railway. One was a one dollar silver
certificate which hal been so plastered
by the substitution of figures taken from
internal revenue start ps as fo raise its ap
parent value to $5 The other was a
two dollar greenback raised to a five.
The deception was cleverly and ingen
iously carried out, and only close scruti
ny would reveal the fraudulency of the
job. Fine working cmps are evidently
at work in Rock Island, and people
should look out for them. Both the bills
described had been passed to the drivers
without detection, snd the counterfeited
value received. It wis not until the bills
wero presented at the bank, was it
known that they were "doctored."
A KeiU Art.
That there is at baat one brave officer
on the Rock Island police force is a fact
established beyond doubt. Late yester
day afternoon a team of horses to which
was attached a bear; coal wagon, came
dasbiag madly up West Seventeenth
street from the river and turned into Sees
ond avenue, goinr westward. Officer
Iletter, after attending to step the mad
dened team as it came up, rushed after
the wagon, and climbing in from the
rear hurried to the front and reaching
down grasped the reins, which were
dangling about the whiffletrees. and
brought the horses to a stop. But for
the officer's prompt, and effective action.
there is no telling 'there the team would
have stopped or a hat might have hap

FURS SEAL SKINS FURS.
A Few Plata Facta Warthy af Tear
All fur seals come from Alaska Seal
islands, located north by northwest of
San Francisco, and must come through
the port of San Francisco, for the fur
company that has the exclusive right and
control of these seal island has its head
quarters in that city, consequently that
is tbe only seal headquarter. All Alaska
seals, no matter where, when or of wbom
brought, comes from that company in
San Francisco. Now this company re
handle the seals in San Francisco grade
and pack them and ship them to London
to be dressed, dyed and sold; but the
poorer skins or damaged ones are sold
raw and bought up and dyed by infer
ior dyers in Germany, France, America
and in' London; but the best skins we
reserve and have dyed by O. W. Martin
& Sons, of London, England, tbe only
firm in the world that hold the secret of
how to dress and dye seal skins so that
they retain the strong elastio skin that
will not tear, also the purest dye that
looks so beautiful and will not crock off,
but stand the wear of three ordinarv seal
garmenU and still look nicer. These
poorer skins are dyed by inferior dyers
and put on the market, of course all sold
for Alaska seal London dye; true, they
are Alaska seal, but all Alaska seals are
not the best grades. The damaged and
inferior dyed ones crock off and tear and
wear shabby. Soon some of you can tes
tify from experience. Now seal skins are
an article that few know anything about,
so in purchsing a seal skin garment your
safest plan is to buy direct of first hands
in San Francisco; then you are sure to
get the best at a reasonable price. Now
in making the skins into garments is an
other important point. All manufactur
ers, except one, use the whole seal sides of
short fur that wears off so soon under the
arms and under sleeves and stretch the
skins, which causes them to tear, shrink
and show tbe UDder dye, the firm of H
Liebes & Co., of San Francisco, being the
only headquarters, the only first
hands. By catching the seals the
cost to them is much lees than what
others have to pay for them, and
by catching them, knowing when
where, how caught, how cared for. and
sorting them they know which is best
which will wear best and look best, while
all others buy after they are dyed and
know nothing at all about tbe age, whtn,
where and how caught; they only know
bow to stretch the skins and sell them for
oxborbltant prices. Now on the 6 h day
ef November last fall, at our semi-annual
sale in London all seals advanced 42
per cent and all dealers, no matter who
or where, had to pay that advance and
had to advance their retail price; but the
firm of H. Liebes & Co. are not affected
by the rise; consequently are selling at
former prices, and the firm of H. Liebes
& Co. use tbe seal backs only, the choic
est part of the tkin, do not stretch them,
and sell you a better seal garment, better
made and better wearing $65 to $175 less
than any house in the world; we except
none. The citizens of Rock Island, Dav
enport and Moline will have an oppor
tunity to see a large line of seal gtrments
from the world renowned fur manufac
turing establishment of H. Liebes & Co.,
of San Francisco. They will be on dis
