All over the country the people are re
sponding to the call for'relief from the
offerers of the Johnstown deluge. What
is Rock Island going to dot t Who can
hear this question aaked without a feeK
ing of remorse? Bnt perhaps Rock Isl
and has been dilatory in this respect be
cause no movement has been undertaken
looking to the charitable end suggested;
there has been no one here to take the
initlatiTe. The Arqus is anxious to do
its duty in this respect to assume the
responsibility of establishing a fund or of
giving to the public any views that may
be offered as to how we should proceed
- to raise our share of the donations that
should - be forthcoming. Perhaps it
would be well to baTe a meeting of the
Improvement association called to take
this action; at any rate, we should bestir
ourselves and so something. What shall
The express companies will all carry
funds gratuitously, the Western Union
Telegraph company carry messages upon
the subject free, and the railroad compa
nies will carry ail freight free destined
for Johnstown. Davenport has raised
$2,000 and Moline has called a meeting
ta take action; it certainly remains for
Rock Island to contribute in some way
its proportion. The city has done itself
proud in times past on dire occasions
such as this, and will do so again.
People who have traveled over the
Pennsylvania railroad know what a seat
of industry Johnstown was. It was
populated, too, by a thrifty people.
There were wealth and general comfort.
Ia a few hours, and almost without
warning, it was changed into a scene of
absolute desolation. The destroying ele
ment did not respect sex, age or station.
Rich and poor, men, women and chil
dren, were swept out of existence.
Whole families were destroyed. On a
great battlefield the dead can be num
bered and identified, and the wounded
cared for. Here this is impossible. The
dead was carried away by the relentless
waters, and are widely scattered. Many
of the bodies will probably never be
found, or if found, will not be identified.
The list, if made up at all, must be
reached largely from the missing, and
this will take time. Tbe vacancies in
family circles are to be counted. Relatives
and friends will, in many cases, wait pa
tiently and anxiously to hear from absent
ones whose bodies may not be found.
until at last hope will be given up and
the list of the dead will be increased,
And now worse and worse will come the
reports, and more horrible will become
tbe details which will be gathered for the
press. Neither has the loss of property
been sufficiently estimated. - It is enor
mous. Twenty millians will not cover it,
and it may reach forty millions or more.
To all the horrors of tbe hour poverty
is a4ded. In addition to vacant places
in tbe family there are ruined homes, and
the sayings of years have been destroyed.
Immediate wants will, of course, be sup
plied. The country will see to that. A
generous people will contribute freely.
But, unfortunately, this is all the coun
try can do. The afflicted may to this ex
tent be comfortable, but the lost ones can
not be restored.
Tomorrow evening Hoyt's funniest
comedy, "A Bunch of Keys," will be
presented at Harper's theatre. The San
Francisco BulUiin says of the play:
Judging from the 'appearance of the
audience at this house last evening, the
drawing power of Hoy t's farces is undi
minished. The house was literally packed
to welcome the reappearance of the
"Bunch of Keys." The gallery was such
as delights the actors, for there is to be
found the test of a play. If the gallery
is full and enthusiastic the play is a such
cess; and so on the same principle tbe
"Bunch of Keys" is an unqualified su
cess. James B. Mackie, who splays

sor, Canfield; and tbe ladies, who are all
new, dress prettily and sing sweetly. As
a whole the company is as good as ' any
presenting the same play before. The
"Bunch of Keys" is so well known that
further mention is unnecessary. There
will be a matinee tomorrow.

BUYING ON MONTHLY PAYMENTS.
Purchaser Pay Well for the Privilege of
Shearing Goods on Tims.
In general way tbe monthly payment
tores afford a good Index of tbe prosperity
of the middle and lower classes. Hard times
and lack of employment invariably make
themselves felt in delay or stoppage of pay
ments, and the duration of stringent circum
stances can readily be measured by the way
the payments are resumed. A furniture
dealer was Interviewed by a reporter:
VV hat course do you take in case of delin
quency In payment!"
"There is only -one advisable course, and
that la to tide over those who cant take up
their monthly notes. The public, I think, has
distorted views about the monthly payment
stores. There are, doubtless, some sharks
among us, but most of us aim to do a fair.
legitimate business, charging but 10 per cent,
more for our goods that tbe men who sell for
rash do. - Taking back of goods b always
avoided, for there is no money in a sale if the
stock has to be taken back and turned over to
the auction stores. It is only the monthly
payment stores which keep second hand fur
niture that can profit by the utter failure of
their patrons. We have families that we
have carried along a year, and 1 doubt not
that other monthly payment stores have like
wise. To harass patrons would be to work
against 'our own interest. So fax as rates of
profit are concerned, tbe only element of in
justice in thorn is one of which the publio
rarely thinks. If the account runs a year the
10 per cent extra we charge is fair, for the
risk, the cost of collection, and the loss of in
terest from having money outstanding is fully
equal to the additional rate of profit we
charge. Our margin of profit is computed so
as to Include a year's interest on tbe regular
prices of the goods, but many, possibly the
greatest number, of our accounts are closed
In a shorter time six months, say. Thus on
a purchase of tGO or (75 worth of goods, ar
ranged so as to be settled in six months, the
buyer pays 20 per cent Interest on the
amount of the bill for the wboL. period, while
be actually makes a payment of a sixth of the
bill when begets tbe goods and a similar pay
ment every succeed! ng month. When the ac
count runs for a year tbe burden Is not so
heavy. If people can pay cash they should,
and every honest dealer in our line of busi
ness will tell them so.
"It is unquestionably true that the form of
payment Is a temptation to purchase beyond
the means to pay. We have no trouble In
selling. Our greatest difficulty is to keep the
bill down to what we consider a safe limit
People do not stop to think that they pay for
their privilege of making installments at a
tolerably high rate. One reason of this lack
of judgment is probably because women do
so much of the buying at tbe monthly pay
ment stores. They often fail to estimate
carefully what they can do, and tbe result is
that they become a source of trouble to
themselves and us. Often, too, men who
were drawing good salaries at the time of the
purchase, get out of work soon after, and
any miscalculation on their part makes pay;
ment an -uphill work. - Tbe spread of - the
payment stores has been suprisiog. Almost
every large city now has -ti umber of such
concerns, which aesnr-to do more than
their ordinary -filiare of business. In Chi
cago I 'doubt if there are as many
as r there were two or three years
ago. The reason of this is not that the scheme
does not work successfully, or that there have
sprung up too many for the population. Tbe
capital required for such a business is much
greater than that which is requisite for a cash
trade. It was a common practice for dealers
to realize on their monthly notes at 2 or 8 per
cent a month. They were unable to carry
their own paper, or borrow at legal rates, and
the result was that a number of concerns have
failed during the last year or two. I think it
is all nonsense to talk ot tbe monthly pay
ment stores cutting into tbe regular trade
disastrously. We catch a class of patrons
wno would not deal ataoasb store, since they
would not be likely to save up the necessary
money. I believe that . monthly payment
stores are an incentive to thrift and economy ,
second only to the building associations."
Oar Postal System.
If there is any point on which our postal
system does not stand in need of Improve
ment it is in tbe cheapness of postage. Our
newspapers are carried within the coutty of
their publication for nothing, and every
where else for next to nothing, and a letter
of an ounce weight is transported from any
point to any other of our enormous area of
8,600,000 square miles for the smallest unit of
letter postage known in Christendom. But a
far more important matter, and one wholly
neglected, is that of postal delivery. In other
civilized countries the postofflce, receiving a
letter from, tlie writer, undertakes to deliver
It to the person addressed.
Ia our own happy land the postoffice re
ceives the letter, and (except in the case of a
privileged 20 per cent of the people) under
takes to carry it to within five or tea miles of
the person addressed, and keep It there till
called for. This is the mere barbarism of
postal service, worthy of the dark ages before
Rowland Hill. The enormous cost and loss
which it involves become obvious to any one,
on a few minutes' reflection. For example:
A man living three miles from the postoffice
is anxiously expecting a letter of great im
portance, which may arrive any time within
a fortnight He goes daily to look for it, and
on the sixth day he gats it That letter cost
him twelve hours of walking, or six hours of
travel for himself and horso. In other words,
the postage on that totter has been virtually
93.02, or mora The government does not get
the money, but the citizen loses it Dr. Bacon
