Miss Clara Barton, president of the
National Red Cross society at Johnstown,
to whom the Rock Island contributions
to the destitute of the Conemsugh Valley
were sent, has sent the following letter in
acknowledgment of Treasurer Paul's
Johnstoww, Pa., June 21, 1889. The
mails of the 17th brought me your valued
letter of the 14th containing draft Mo.
63.8G3 for $1,215 91 for the relief of des
titution caused by the late floods in the
Conemaugh Valley, and saying that the
same was contributed by various so
cieties, churches, associations and indN
vlduals of your city. For this manifesta
tion of confi ience on the part of your
city so far away, and knowing so little
of me, myself and my associates, hard
worked and earnest, thank you in their
hearts for tho noble contributions which
you have made, and still make. The
people here will bless you in their souls.
We will do our best with moneys and
lumber and all that you place in our
bands. Believing that you realize this, I
remain most sincerely yours,

At the regular meeting of the Daven
port Business Men's association last
evening, the committee on western
waterways reported progress, and re
quested Judge Murphy, who was pres
ent, to do a little talking on the subject.
The judge read an invitation from the
Cincinnati board of trade, etc., for a del
egate attendance from Davenport at the
great waterways convention to be held in
that city, Sept. 4th and 5th, and then
brought the Hennepin canal before the
meeting, and urged not only the appoint
ment of delegates from the association,
but also from the council, and they to
elect outside delegates. He gave a re
view of the Hennepin canal project, and
said it never stood fairer chance of sue
cess than at this day and he gave good
reason for his belief. He made a very
plain and very strong speech.
Rationality or Mr boot Children.
Superintendent Kemble has prepared
an interesting statement of the nativity
of the children who attended the Rock
Island public schools in the rear just
closed, and that of their parents. The
enrollment showed 2,002 pupils, of whom
1,264, or more than one-half, were born
in Rock Island, while C29 others were
born elsewhere in the United States.leav
ing only 169 of foreign birth. The na
tivity of the parents of these 2,062 chil
dren is as follows:

Last evening the official board of the
First M. E. church met and awarded the
contract for the masonry of the new
First M. E. church to Welsh & Edwards,
with the selection of the kind of material
left with the building committee. The
bids for carpentry, plumbing, roofing,
etc., were rejected, and the committee
was authorized to invite new bids for all
work outside the masonry, to be done
.under one general contract.
The instructions to the building com
mittee were to let the contract, and push
the work as rapidly as possible. The
church furnishes the stone for the cellar,
while the liabilities are that the material
on construction work above the grade
line, to the water table, will be J. L.
Harts' limestone, the steps and platform
Atway sandstone, and the trimmings
Buff Amhoist atandstone, and the range
work Colona stone.

The Burlington Gazette says:
Cut down the weeds! In many of the
Vacant lots of this city the burdocks and
other noxious weeds grow in such trop
ical luxuriance as to rival the Indian
jungles. Sidewalks are fringed with
great coarse weeds, that almost impede
progress, and in many cases leave only a
narrow foot path in the middle of the
walk. However picturesque and rural
such profusion may be, it is hardly con
venient to wade knee deep through the
rank growth. This condition is not con
fined to the outlying portions of the city,
but to localities on the principal thors
oughfares, which can be more definitely
described if desired.

Trl-Clty ailalatera' MeetlaK.
The Tri City Ministerial association
met in the Christian Chapel at Daven
port yesterday at 11 o'clock. The meet
Ing was presided over by Rev. W. S.
Marquis, of this city. The subject of
"A Minister's Vacation Should be Take
One?" was generally discussed, most of
the ministers present believing that it is
good policy for every minister to take a
few weeks vacation every summer, not
merely for rest and recreation, but with
a view of gaining a better knowledge of
what other ministers are doing and pro
paring himself with texts and sermons
foe. the coming year. There were no
papers read nor was any other subject
discussed. The next regular meeting of
the association will be held in November.
A special meeting will probably be held
at Linwood Springs some time in thelat'
ter part of July or in August. A com'
miltee was appointed to make all neces
sary arrangements for it, after which the
meeting adjourned. About a dozen
ministers were present.
The experience of every successful
merchant demonstrates that liberal ad
vertising is the mail element of success.
It is much better to retail $1,000 worth
of goods per day at 10 per cent, profit,
than it is to sell $100 worth at 25 per
cent profit. Liberal advertising of low
prices greatly increases the number of
customers, and while the profits are
smaller on the good, the aggregate
profits of the day are much larger than
the slower eoingnerchants realize. Any
person can demonstrate the truth of this
by going into the stores and examining
goods and prices, and seeing the largely
increased sales of the largest advertisers.
They know full well that people who are
bunting bargains will readily lake the
hint from a judiciously worded adver
tisement. Their business shows the
truth of the aphorism, "Advertising

TO preserve the richness of color or delicacy of tint of your sum
mer dresses, make suds of hot water and Ivory Soap, allow to
cool until lukewarm, then wash your dresses in the solution. Ordi
nary soaps contain too much alkali, which in a short time bleaches
the color and destroys its beauty. Prof. Silliman, of Yale College,
says, "The Ivory Soap can not injure the most delicate fabric."
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the 'Ivory';"
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities
of the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.
