AN ODD SCHEME.
We were approached a few days ago to become a party to
a scheme which was explained to us in the following langnage:
"We (the schemers) will place a half dozen men in your city and will
visit every house, offering for sale a ticket costing the purchaser 25 cents.
This will entitle the ho'der any time within six months to demand of you
upon an additional payment of $2.75 making a total of $3 00 a dozen
Cabinets and an extra picture in a gilt frame. This outfit of frame and
pictures you can represent as worth $4, 5 or $6; we will swear it's worth
whatever vou say. We place tbeee tickets in the community to keep the
25 cents that we collect. Oh, yes, the public will bite at worse than this.
But its a great scheme as the frame you give away costs 12.00 per hun
dred, 12cts with every order. Suppose one of your neighbors were to go
into it, they now advertise their cabinets at $3.00 per dozen, say the extra
picture and frame would cost an additional 25cts, through our scheme he
would get 2.75, a handsome profit on this extra picture and frame, FhT
Of course we prefer to work this scheme through the .leading photo
grapher but we are bound to work it through some one. Yes, we may
strike an irresponsible party or he may get closed up. -We give no bond
that he will continue in business, but he will if he can, because you see
this scheme gives him better prices than he now obtains!"
It is needless to say that RASMUSSEN declined to employ peddlers and
tramps TO work such questionable tactics, The only means we use to
create business are: "C"
1st. We make only the finest quality of wojk and that at popular prices.
2'1. We guarantee satisfaction. j
3d. Our Gallery contains more and better instruments, back-grounds'
and all appliances for making Photos, twice over, than all the other Gal-1
lerics in the city combined. ' I
Whenever such inducements can be offered it ia unnecessary to employ'
"Tramp Ticket Fakirs,' but that they are now being employed here in
Rock Island is our excuse for exposing the true inwardness of the scheme.

Uvldesi II air and the Three Bear"
Artlatleal ly Uratdere at Harper's
Theatre I. aat Kvrnlaa:.
The entertainment given at Harper's
theatre last evening under the direction
of Miss Helen 0L Tripp, was one of the
best ever iven in this city by local tal
ent. The sight was extremely warm,
still with ihis and other drawbacks, a
large and i ppreciative audience greeted
the performers. One hundred and twenty-live
pers ins were on the atage at the
opening. '?o say that all who took part,
acted their several assignments well, is
the least tt at can be said. Hies Tripp
deserves gnat credit for training so large
a body of j oung people, who, under her
tuition, were so trained and drilled so as
to carry out the play to almost perfec
The oper ing tableau was a woodland
scene, in v. hich the full class took part,
Misses Agnes Bixby and Ella Wilcox
having solo parts. The sweet voices of
Misses II il na Ohlin and Amy Kuox re
ceived applause. The Bard's warning
song in this act by Mr. C. M. Carlstedt
waa finely rendered. Scene first closed
with the g-and coronation of "Princess
Fair and tableau with red and creen
The Bear appeared in the second act.
Messrs. Will Collins was big bruin.
Arthur Gie Mammy Muff, and Eddie
Frysinger Tiny cub. Their antics were
the most comical part of the evening's
entertaiment. ' The bears held the stage
for fifteen minutes, singing songs during
their stay, of which the audience evinced
approval by applause. This act closed
with a comic tableau.
Part thn e was Tike the previous one
good in all respects. The fairies' polka
scarf dance led by Mrs. Geo. E. Lam
bert, was well received. Miss Ella Wil
cox, and the leader ofthe faines, sung a
lullaby. The act closed with a tableau,
with red and blue light, illumination-.:
Scene four was enjoyable. "Golden
Hair" in tl is act entered the bears' home,
where she was captured, and afterwards
rescued by the bard. All words in this
play were in song, Miss Knox Binging,
and that f the bears and bard, was so
good the audience called for a repetition
of their pert.
The crowning act of the evening was
the last, which was lengthy, but never
theless4 th s audience did not tire. In
this "Pore9t Queen." Miss Hilma Ohlin.
rendered a beautiful song, which was
given in a sweet voice. M. Carlstedt fol
lowed by a solo.
Ooe of the main feautures of the eve
ning was the silent drill, in which eight
members of the plow city rifles, and
eight you ag ladies of Moline took part
The youn men were dressed in the uni
form of tbe state militia, while the la
dies woie Grecian robes. All their
movements 'were as near- perfect as
one cou d expect to see from
trained so diers. The company was re
called and went through the entire drill.

ments wet e particularly fine. Tbe wood
nymphs' evening drill before the queen
was anotter pleasant feature. Everyone
from the t mallest to the largest took part
in this well rendered part. There was
not morn than one mistake made,
and that not generally noticeable. It
also shore the labor and tact of Miss
Tripp, wl o has had but about two weeks
to educate the performers in their part.
The crowning tableau was tbe last and
was a spectacle all people of the city
should si e and enjoy. Tbe small chil

were placed in front of this scene, hold

of admission. Schillinger's orchestra, as

they are untrue, and
if the committee who settled tbe Decor
ation day accounts so stated to the post,
they lied point blank. A few days pre
vous to the committee calling at the office,
an itemized bill against the post had
been made out, the total being $29.80,
which included $4.70 for memorial day
advertising. Now the first item on this
bill bears date of March 20, 1888 over a
year ago which does not look as though
tbe Abgtjb wss very exacting about the
G. A. R. account, does ltt It did not
occur to us that the memorial bill should
be separate from the other, and as soon
as tbe committee so stated, it was changed
without any objection on- our part.
There was no controversy or threats, as
the Kansas liar of the Union says. Our
bill against the G. A. R. post is not
worrying us in the least. It has always
paid promptly when presented, and we
have no doubt but that the present bill
will be favorably acted upon. -
''. A llollae Trick.
There is kicking on the part of the
Rock Island republican candidates for
state's attorney who did not receive so
much as one delegate out of the twenty
eiaftrwho will represent Moline in the
repta'iHican county convention. The
county committee recommended that the
caucus be held in Rock Island and Mo
line this evening. The city committee of
Moline changed the date to Friday even'
mg, which to minds of the Rock
Island candidates was snap judgment.
The change in date was known and un
derstood by tbe friends of W. R. Moore,
who packed tbe caucuses and secured
all ' the delegates. Mr. Olson had
reason to believe from the past strong
support be has received in Moline that
he would at least receive a portion of
the delegates of the Plow city. It is
putting it mild to say that his fnends are
somewhat indignant. -

A meeting of the democratic county

In tbe absence of Chairman Vinton, Mr.

for the purpose of nominating a candi
date for state's attorney to fill out the
unexpired term caused by the death of
Hon. Patrick O'Mara. The representa
tion to the convention was fixed at one
delegate at large for each precinct, and
one for every 60 votes and a fraction of
40 or over, cast for Cleveland and Thur-
man at the last presidential election.
It was agreed to hold the caucuses in the
