That delightful and -popular summer
resort. Black ITawk's watch tower, has
undergone lonu very attractive improve
ments during the winter and now abounds
with more features of interest and enioy
ment than ever. Mr. Davenport has
built an inclined railway down the bluff
to theriver bank at the landing of the
pleasure steamer, and provided it with
cars holding twenty-six passengers each
and wtich will he operated by a wire
cable run by a stationary engine.
The pavilion on the summit of the
tower has been enlarged and beautified
and provided with additional conven
iences for picnicers. Mr. II. F. Lamp
has been assigned to tbe management of
the refreshment pavilion and he will
pare no pains to increase its accommo
dtions. Cars to the tower will run on better
time this season, thus enabling tbe public
to get more enjoyment out of this lovely
spot which we should all appreciate.
NIKE YEARS TO LIVE.
The foment the End T the Warld,
Aeeordlna a Mtrpet Preacher.
An individual whose name was not
learned, and whose name matters liule
anyhow, occupied acoodly portion of the
thoroughfares Saturday and discoursed
upon a new brand of religion of which he
was sole inventor. He came in on the
Central in the morning armed with an ans
tique valise and a voice that had been left
out over nipht and had been blighted by
frost. As soon as be struck the depot
piauorm ne Decan to address the crowd
and soon twenty-five or thirty bad gath
ered around him. He was clad in a suit of
dingy black surmounted by a rakish derby
hat of the vintage of '59. His eyes were
small and had been set out close together
so that they might lean on one another for
support. His face was wrinkled but ex
pressionless, and depending from his
chin was a strangling irrizzly beard that
looked like a hen's nest. lie talked as
loudly as the fractured condition of bis
voice would permit. He announced that
he had come as the advance agent of the
heavenly host and mould bill the town
during the mxt few days. The world
would come to an end in just nine years
and seven days and after that tbe fire
works. He would be the only one
aved unless some of the crowd repented.
All men were sinners with no good thing
in them; therefore they should repent
ana wont in tbe same vineyard as he.
He thought this country was a free coun
try with free speech, free press and lib
ertv of conscience, but he had learned
differently since the police had gotten
after him and people sicked
their dogs upon him. The avant
courier went on in this strain for
some time and then shouldered his eriD
and went up town. He stopped in front
or Conn s clothing store first and there de
livered another address, resulted in sev
eral converts, but at the request of their
families their names are withheld.
It is a little sad to think that tbe world
Will come to an end in nine years. This

Shortly before noon the unknown en
thusiast made his appearance at the
mayor's office and wanted a license to
preach on the streets. Mr. Bergman felt
constrained to decline according permis
sion and the anonymous preacher opened
up in a bitter tirade and proceeded to
camp in the office for an hour or two.
At last accounts both tbe mayor and
preacher were alive.

Tbe thirty -second anniversary of tbe
Rock Island Turner society was cele
brated with fitting exercises Saturday
night. About twenty members of the
Davenport society, accompanied by their
excellent vocal quartette, joined in the
exercises. One of the most enjoyable
features were exercises on the horizontal
bars by the senior members of the Rack
Island society, under tbe leadership of
Mr. John Ohlweiler, in which the veler

they had not forgotten what they used to
know about gymnastics by a good deal.

A RECEPTION TO LINCOLN.
Dm Dooghartjr Bad to MaV Speech on
By reason of being nts birthplace, Philadel
phia claims Dan Dougherty. This claim,
however, is disputed by New York, which is
now his boaie, and both cities, with equal
cause, are proud of him. As an orator, Mr.
Dougherty's reputation is national, and mary
stories are told of tbe readiness of his elo
quence. Perhaps tbe oust striking instance
of this faculty was afforded at the time of
President Lincoln's visit to the great fair of
the sanitary cotnuiisaion in Philadelphia in
1864, as the guest of the Union league.
Morton McMichael, whose fame as a fluent
speaker still lives wherever he was heard;
Char las Gibbons and several other leading
mom hem of the league, were upon the com
mittee of reception, and Mr. McMichael had
prejiared a brilliant address of welcome. By
some miwhajice President Lincoln arrived
abend of tinio, and quietly proceeded to a
hotel, after bis usual unobtrusive fashion.
He was immediately pounced upon by a
Air. uelwter, a genial. Jolly "man about
town," who knew everybody, and was occa
sionally over officious. Taking it for grauted
that it was all right, Mr. Liucoln stepped into
the carriage which Mr. Webster bad in wait
ing aud was driven to the fair. When the
committee of reception called at the hotel to
wait upon him, he was gone, as the clerk
said, with "a committee from the Union
"lnlposw'l)le,, said Mr. McMichael ""We
are tbe committee."
To follow In hot chase was all they could
do, but Mr. Webster was on the watch, and
as the well known group entered the fair
room by one door, he took the president out
of another, and drove straight to the Union
league, wbere the memliem, minus the com
mittee, wore assembled to do honor to the
The committee, boiling over with wrath,
gave chase; vainly, for by this time the
streets were packed with a donsa crowd,
anxious for a sight of Mr. Lincoln. It was
Impossible to drive a carriage through the
crowd, and at Twelfth and Chestnut streets
they were obliged to gt out and fight their
way on foot, Inch by inch. Meantime, at the
Union league ever' thing was upset for lack
of Mr. McMicbaol and the eloquent address
too sttfoly stowed away in his ixn-ket.
Mr. Dougherty was one of the members
anxiously watchiug for the committee which
did not come. At last, growing dcserate,
some one callud him aside and said : "Dun,
this won't do. McMichael isut hero, and
somebody must say something. You're the
only fellow wbo'can do it, and you must."
In vain Mr. Dougherty protested he was
"totally unprejudiced,'1 etc., etc., and begged
to be exctiseiL "Mr. McMichael was ex
pected to speak, and they ought to wait for
him." He was pushed to the front and intro
"Mr. President, you sill be addressed on
behalf the Union league of Philadelphia, by
Mr. Daniel Dougherty."
Mr. Doughorty was absolutely trembling
with stage fright, and his pallor was a sight
to behold, but he mode tlm speech, and Presi
dent Lincoln said afterward that he had sel
dom listened to such a torrent of oratory.
"1 have never overcome a dread of rising
to address an audience, however small," said
Mr. Dougherty, a few days ago. "Even
when 1 rise before a jury, I would feel grate
ful if the floor would open and swallow me.
I want to get away. My lips are dry, my
hands tremble and 1 feel myself turn pale.
After I get started I lose myself in my sub
ject. This feeling gradually wears away,
aud I soon forget these disagreeable symp
toms in my absorption in the work before
me." New York Star.
Regulation on DitnUli Railways.
Every cne who has traveled in Denmark
has noticed the enormous number of guard
houses along the railroads, and the fact that
women usually signal the trains. As a meas
ure of economy man and wife are employed
by the state, the former as track walker aud
the latter as guard. The rules specify the re-

An Enormous Time Teller.
Philadelphia will not be at a loss to loarn
the time of day or night after the big clock
that is to ornament the tower of the public
building is put into position. A person can
form some idea of its immensity when in
fluential clockmakers say that it will take a
whole calendar year to place the clock ma
chinery in the tower after the building shall
have been completed. The bell is to weigh
between 20,000 and 15,000 pounds, second
only in weight to the great Montreal cathe
dral bell, which .weighs 28,000 pounds, and its
peelings are calculated to be heard even to
the most distant parts of tbe city. Tbe West
minster chimes will bo used, ringing on the
quarter, half, three-quarters and hour. The
center of tho dial (twenty-five feet in diame
ter) will be 3C1 feet above the street. In or
der to distinguish the time at night the dial
will be illuminated by electricity, so that tbe
position of the hands can be located from any
point in the city. The minute band is to be
12 feet and tho hour hand 9 feet in length,
while the Roman figures on the dial will each
measure 2 feet B inches in length. A steam
engine will be placed in the tower to wind up
the giant timepiece each day. All in all, it
will be an immense affair, and a fitting em
blem to tbe giant building now in course of
erection. Jeweler's Review.
To Protect Musicians' Fingers.
A simple and inexpensive device for the
protection of tbe fingers of musicians while
playing on stringed instruments, such as the
guitar and harp, has been patented. It con
sists of a curved strip of -metal adapted to re
ceive the end of the finger or thumb, and
provided with a covering of leather or
analogous material To tbe outer surface
of this covering is applied a mixture of Venice
turpentine and pine pitch, preferably mixed
In about the proportions of three porta of
turpentine and one of pitch, the design being
to thus render the playing more comfortable
and insure a more positive action of tbe finger
upon the string. New York Home Journal
To make silk which has been "tumbled"
and wrinkled appear nearly like new, sponge
it on the surface with a weak solution of gum
arable on white gloves, and iron it on tbe
wrong side. Strong black tea, cold, is a good
thing to clean black silk.
A Life Made Miserable
By dyspepsia is scarcely worth the liv
ing. A capricious appetite, heartburn,
puzzling nervous symptoms, increased
action of tbe heart after eagpg, sinking
in the - abdomen between meals, and
flatulence after, are among the scccessive
indicia of this barrassing complaint. Two
things only ere needful for its removal.
A resort to Hostetter's Stomach Bitters,
and persistence In its use. These reme
dial measures being adopted, a cure is
certain. Taken immediately before or
after meals, this great stomachic pro
motes secretion of the gastric juice, tbe
natural solvent of tbe food. Tbe nervous
and bilious symptoms consequent upon
chronic indigestion disappear, as the
complaint gradually yields to the cor
rective and Invigorating influence of the
Bitters. Appetite returns, sleep becomes
more refreshing, and as a consequence,
the body is efficiently nourished, muscu
lar power increases, and the mind grows
sanguine. - Use the Bitters for chills and
fever, and rheumatism.

said: "Its health-giving effects upon the
