Chicago yesterday to transact business,
elect offlceia and declare a dividend of
two-and on 9 half per cent, which makes
a total of five per cent for the year.
This is a great showing and displays
good manaj;ement on the part of the gen

of the road The financial statement was
gratifying to the stockholders in mind
and purse. The road is practically a
Rock Island institution and owned in
large part I y people of this city.
The foils wing officers were elected:
President RR Cable.
Vice President A Kimball.
Secretary and Treasurer H B Sudlow.
Executive Committee R R Cable,
Thomas F Withrow, H B Sudlow.
A. Kimball and Geo. W. Cable were
elected directors to fill the vacancy caused
by the death of Judge Cornelius Lynde
and W. II. Decker. The directors
elected the old officers who have been so
faithful in past to look after the welfare
of the road. Mr. Robert Btockhouse will
look after tie freight and ticket depart
ment, II. C. Whitridge, auditing, and
Mr. H. B.Sidlow remains as general man
ager. Mr. Ctble succeeds the late Cor
nelius Lynda as president, which is the
first time his name has appeared at the
head of this road. Mr. Kimball is one of
the new names in the directory, and his
long experit nee in railroading will be a
help to the road.

which projpetd over the barge, falling a
distance of en feet, and striking on the

The workman, with the assistance of his
brother, car-ied him on a stretcher to his
residence in the lower end of the city.
Drs. Paul i nd Wessell were summoned
by telephone, and were at his bedside
within half tin hour of the accident. The
physicians cannot say bow serious the
injuries are, as it will take several days
to determine. Mr. Kahlke was lying in
an unconscious condition this afternoon,
although no critical symptoms had ap
peared. Frank Reed, a fourteen year-old boy,
working at the Rock Island Lumber and

Everyone acquainted with Mr. Henry
Schmidt, junior member of the wholesale
liquor Arm of Peter Fries A Co., will be
pained to learn that he is no more. The
sad news was received by cablegram this
morning by his father-in-law, Mr. Peter
Fries, that he had died in Bischbrumm,
Mr. Schmidt, till a year age, was con
sidered one of the most robust of men.
The disease which terminated his exis
tence has been of gradual growth. On
the advice of bis physician he left for the
old world February 9th, last, hoping a
change would remove the enemy which
had been preying upon his vitals. The
first stopping point was Paris, where
he consulted and was treated by the
best physiciana without apparent ben
efit. From there, in company with
bis wife, he visited Italy, thence to
Munich, finally stopping at Bischruum,
Bavaria, with relatives of his wife Wm.
Mantel, a high German official, where he
received k.ind attention. The last letter
received conveyed encouraging news,
which gave hope to his friends. His
death was sudden, and not in any wise
expected. The direct cause of his death
was heart disease, being aggravated by
neuralgia and kidney troubles.
Mr. Schmidt was born in St. Louis,
September 29, 1846, which was his home
up to the time he came to this city,
when be became a member of the liquor
firm of Peter Fries & Co. April 7, 1875,
he was united in marriage to Miss Annie
Fries. Their union has been blessed by
three children one boy and two girls
who are at the home of their grand
parents in this city. His mother, Mrs.
Caroline Schmidt and sister Dora, of St.
Louis, are also left to mourn his loss.
Mr. Fries cablegramed this morning to
have the remains brought to Rock Island
for interment, and Mrs. Schmidt will
start on her sorrowful journey at once.
The demise of Mr. Schmidt is to be
greatly deplored. He was a pusher ia
everything which added to the prosperity
of the city and will be greatly missed by
a score of friends who have met him in
the social circle and by the people at
large, who will remember his genial.
jovial disposition and public spirit.

Architect Schuerman received a tele
gram this afternoon, conveying the in
formation that the Cleveland stone com
pany had been awarded the contract for
supplying the material for the arsenal
But the question now arises, which is
the bid accepted, in the rough or dressed?
A letter received by President Porter, of
the Moline Business Mea'a association
today from Congressman Oest, says that
Oea. Benet. chief of ordnance, has recom
mended that the bid of the Cleveland
company be accepted, and the general
inference of the letter is that the stone
will be cut at the quarries. It is to be
hoped that tbis is not so, and that the
stone will be cut on the island, as hereto
Rat Pie for Epicures.
Not only is the rat fastidious in its choice
of food, but it affords a dainty food itself, in
connection with which fact I have had some
amusing experiences. Some years ago I men
tioned incidentally in the course of a locture
that the Chinese, who eat the rat habitually.
and the Parisians, who did so under compul
sion, suffered no real hardship, as the flesh is
not only nutritious but really excellent and
delicate food, far surpassing that of the
rabbit. Being pressed by the audience for
further explanation I told them that I spoke
from practical experience and that cold rat
pie (of course made from barn rats) was a
delicacy worthy of any epicure's table.
tie ports of the lecture mostly exaggerated
were published in the leading newsreners
and copied into nearly every journal in the
lana. An avaiaucbe of correspondence nour-
ed on me, and I was greatly amused with the
different views or the writers. A few had
summoned up courage to try theexperimont,
ana were unanimous in tbeir approbation-
Many asked lor details in the manufacture of
the pie, which wonld have taken up a whole
cookery book if answered. Many more ask
ed if I could kindly send them a ready made
pie, so tnat they mignt judge for themselves.

Toints About O. W.
Senator Daniel, of Virginia, in his oration
on the character of Washington, vouchsafes
some pithy information about the father of
his country that hasnt been generally known
before. According to the irginia orator,
Washington was a hale fellow well met with
none, but be chased the fox and led the danr
with a natural zest. He collected a bill with
as much punctuality as he paid one. He loved
a fine horse, and be dressed in good clothes.
He located an investment in real estate with
as good judgment as he set a squadron in the
field. He berated a coward and condemned
a knave In language of which it is historic
ally said that it contained more truth than
poetry. He pitied and helped the poor with
the hand of charity. He loved the comrades
who had fought by his side in battle. He
hated a tyrant; he despised a demagogue; he
spoke little; he thought much; he wrote like
a philosopher; he behaved like a gentleman;
be saved his country; be worshiped God, and
he died in peace, with the blessing and tears
of humanity about him. Boston Herald.
