To the Public.
We have decided to go out of the Dry Goods business and to close
out our entire stoek of Dry Goods and Notions, not excepting any
thing in the store. This unexpected announcement is due to a change
in the business plans of the firm, and although it may oppear un
reasonable to do so after being here so short a time, still we feel justi
fied in making the change. .We shall commence our sale on Wednes
day morning. We remain closed all day tomorrow to arrange our
store and mark goods over. Everything will be marked down leaving
the old marks on the tickets to show what reduction is made. We
want to close our stock out at once and if prices will do it the goods
ill go. As is well known our stock is all new and it will not be like
closing out an old stoek. This will give the people of Davenport and
vicinity a chance to buy goods as they have never done before and
there is no humbug about. We mean a great slaughter of new stock.
Every piece of goods in the store will suffer and you wll' only bave to
come in and see it to be convinced. In tomorrow's papers we Bhall

Maj. McGinnis might be promoted in

Col. Baylor has been granted the leave
of absence, and it is generally conceded
that be will not again assume command
of Rock Island arsenal. His health is
such thiit it is understood it is his desire
that a cbange be made, though it is with
great reluctance that he realizes the ne
cessity of such a change. Col. Baylor
has mar y warm friends here among the
workmen on the island, and deep
regret is felt over his prospective
change, and the hope is expressed
that b may yet retain command,

Kewr Use for Carrier Plceona.
The Davenport Democrat-Gazette has
heard that Superintendent Given, of the
Iowa division of the Rock Island road, is
making experiments with carrier pigeons
with a view to supplement the telegraph
service. One day recently he sent thirty-
four pigeons by express from his home to
Brooklj n, a station on the Rock Island,
seventy miles east. They were released
by the station agent there. The birds
first rose in the air and made a circuit of
the towns as if to get their bearings, and
then took a bee. line straight west toward
home. They made the seventy miles
back in less than two hours, and all but
three reached Superintendent Given's
bouse in good condition. These were all
young birds and this was their first long
trip, so that their success in coming home
was the more remarkable. The Daveir
port pnper quotes Mr. Given as saying
that the wind storms often render the
telegraph lines useless, even if the lines
are not blown down, and be tbinks that
a set of carrier pigeons at each station
might t e made very serviceable in such
an emergency. He is experimenting
with that object in view.

The Augustan a state conference of
Minnesota convenes in East Union,
Minn., today. An exchange says one of
the main questions to be presented before
the conference is in reference to the pro
posed separation and removal of the
theological seminary from the Augustana
college at Rock Island. In this matter a
plan of action will be decided upon, and
the question brought before the general
convention of the synod at Rock Island
in June. In case the resolution is passed
the seminary will either go to Chicago,
Omaha or some other point. Resolu
tions will also be presented in reference
to the English mission work, the en
largement of the orphans' borne at Vasa
and as to beneficial aid to English speak
ing students at Augustana college. From
what can be elicited from conversation
with those in a position to know, there is
a possibility of the change being made
though it is hardly probable. It has been
talked of for some time.
