KINGSBURY & SON,
1705 Secend Avenue.
We were approached a few days ago to become a party to
a scheme which was explained to us in the following language:
"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 holder any time within six months to demand of you
upn an additional payment of if'i. 75 making a total of ?3 00 a dozen
Cabinet and an extra picture in a gilt frame. This outfit of frame and
pictures you can represent as worth -?4, f 5 or S6; we will swear it's worth
whatever yon say. We place these tickets in the community to keep the
25 cents that we collect. Hi, yes, the public will bite at worse than this.
Hut its a great scheme as the frame you give away costs $12.00 per bun-,
dred, 12i:ts with every order. Huppo-te one of your neighbors were to go
into it, they now advertise their cabinets at $2. 00 per dozen, say the extra
picture and frntne would coil an additional 25c,ts, through our scheme he
would get $2.75. a hmdsome profit on this extra picture and frame, FhT
Of course we prefer to work this scheme through the leading photo
grnpher 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 con'itnie in business, but be will if he can, because you see
this scheme gives him better prices than he now obtains."
It is needless to say tl.at HAHMU.syE.V declined to employ peddlers and
tkamp"? to woitK such questionable tactics. The ouly means we use to
I .. create business are:
lt. We make only the finest quality of work anil that at popular prices.

;td. Our Oallery contains more and belter instruments, back-grounds
and all appliances for making Photos, twice ovei, than all the other Gal
leries in the city combined.
Whenever such inducements can be offered it is unnecessary to employ
"Tramp Ticket Fakirs," but that they are now being employed here in
Rock Inland is our excuse for exposing the true inwardness of the scheme.

TrVA S A G LOR I0US FOURTH
Navnre Smiled Upon the Happy Re
H'V the Lortl Poblle. Celebrated the
Ni.tlon'a Birthday--At the Watch
Ti wtr, on Sylvan Island and else
where. Al nature was patriotic yesterday.
The elements seemed to realize the
glad holiday and to combine in the best
way possible to make it grand and glor
ious The clerk of the weather had
ordered the best at bis command and bis
wishes were complied with in every par
ticular and detail. The weather was
most, propituous not too hot to be un
comfortable yet just enough to make it
most delightful the roads were in good
condition for pleasure driving and every
bodj who could, was out enjoying him
Belf ind giving vent to bis patriotism in
the manner most in harmony with his
Tie street cars and livery stables did a
good business. Supt. Schnitger bad
his improved service between the two
cities successfully inaugurated, and
found need for all the additional cars he
could bring into use. On the Rock Is
land & Milan line Supt. Davenport put
on additional cars for theaccommoda-
tion of the traffic, and found them crowded
all dny. A great many people came in
from the country, dispite the various
suburban celebrations, and these with
the great outpouring of city folks, made
today a lively one, though no formal of
observance had been adopted.
Tba main points of attraction were of
course the watch tower and Sylvan Is-,
land, though many took in the excursions
to Offerman's Island and not a few spent
the day at White Sulphur Springs, at
Linwood, where tbey had some fine fire
work) last night. Others went to the
ball ames at Davenport, and enjoyed
the two games in the series with Burling
ton. A few people visited the Rock Is
land ball park expecting to see a game,
but were disappointed. The picnic given
under the auspices of St. John's Man
necboir at Huber's garden, came in for its
share of patronage.
AK AERONAUT'S NAKRQW ESCAPE.
Sylvan Island was thronged all day,
the nain attraction being a balloon as
cension, and paricbute drop by Prof. S.
L. Thompson. The ascent was made
about 5 o'clock, and the airship rose
about 300 feet, when the daring voyager
seizing a firm grip upon his parachute
leaped out. At first the parachute
spreal out and worked admirably, but it
soon became unmanageable, and when
about thirty feet from the ground Thomp
son let go and fell into Sylvan water. lie
lit awkardly and upon his side, and
in such a position, as to so disable him
that be could not swim, and he struggled
desperately fully 250 feet from the shore.
A soldier on the Island side threw sevs
eral buoys to the struggling aeronaut,
but he was unable to grasp them, and
! the soldier finally jumped into the water
and swam to Prof. Thompson's relief,
rescuing him when he was completely
exhausted and ready to give up the
struggle in despair. He was taken to
the shore, where restoratives were applied
and today is in a fair way to recovery,
though his escape is regarded as a nar
row one, indeed.
A I.CDICR-R'S INCIDENT.
There was a great concourse of people
at Bla "k Hawk's watch tower all day and
abundant enjoyment was found for
everybody. A ludicrous incident oc
curred in the afternoon at the boat slide,
when boat well laden with ladies and
gentle nen dashed down the incline and
into he water, and without warning,
sunk to the bottom of Rock river near
the fo it of the slide, without going ont
into H wr. Tbere was an Instant
scramble for the shore and all were
obliged to walk in water up to their
waists. The scene presented, and as
witnessed by thousands of people, was
amusit g, though had the water been
deeper, it would not have been so laugh
In the evening Mr. Bailey Davenport
gave his long promised pyrotechnic dis
play fiom a float anchored at the base of
the tower. Some very unique and al
together pretty pieces were sent skys
wards andthe exhibition was pronounced
by all who witnessed it a fine success.
A PRI7.E FIGHT.
Quite a number of people visited Of
fermat 's Island during the day, where the
sports were varied by a number of fistic
encout ters, the principal of which was a
genuine eighteen-round prize fight in
which tbe participants. Black and Slat-
ery, both semi-professionals, hailed
from Davenport. Black proved winner,
and 9 100 changed bands on the result,
thougl tbe stake bolder is reported
missing. A number of minor encounters
for vaiious sums occurred.
The e were a number of beautiful pri -
vate d splays.
A number of Rock Island families spent
tbe dap quietly on Big Island.
The Sutcliffe and Holdorf families
spent ibe day in a reunion at Silver Lake
Mol ne bad three fires in consequence
of the Fourth, but all were suppressed
in their incipiency.
Some brilliant colored lights along the
Davenport bluffs were appreciated on
this si le of tbe river.
The displays from Sylvan Island and
from i-he watch tower made brilliant
scenes to the east and to the south of the
city lait night.
The spectacle from the bridge at about
10 o'clock, when innumerable rockets
were shooting upward from both sides of
the Mississippi, was beautiful.
A select picnic on the lawns at the
Velie place, Moline, was one of the fea
lures c f the day, and man; from this city
attended. Last evening dancing and
handsome fireworks closed the very pleas
At 7:30 last evening a fire balloon
ascended from Sylvan island and after

The Fourth was celebrated yesterday
at Andalusia in a beautitul grove about
one mile west of town on the bank of the
Mississippi river. A large procession
assembled in the vlage in the morning
unaer tne direction of J. u. Bntton.pres
ident of"the day. and moved toward the
picnic grounds led by a brass band. The
exercises were opened by prayer by Rev.
Mr. Johnston, of Edgington, followed by
the reading of the declaration of inde
pendence. Mr. M. M. Sturgeon, of tLis city, spoke
in tbe forenoon and he did not ignore the
opportunity to advance bis claims to the
office of state's attorney, a candidate for
which he has been made by the republi
cans of Rock Island connty. He dwelt
at some length upon bis incumbency of
the office of county superintendent of
schools, and drew the inference that be
cause he had made an excellent county
superintendent he would make a number
one prosecutor, if elected. He also
made patriotic and eloquent allusion to
the day, its meaning and glory.
In tbe afternoon Mr. Wm. McEniry, of
this city, delivered the address of the
Mr. McEniry said in substance:
Mr. President and Ladies and Gentlemen :
Upon this beautiful sun lit day on the
banks of this great and historic river, the
home of the Black Hawk chieftain, the
father of waters, do we assemble, but for
what purpose? When the wild and un
tutored savage met and vanquished the
foe, he was called about the fireside on
the choicest summit to rejoice over the
achieved victory. The Turk celebrates
the anniversary of great days; it is a
custom banded down by tradition from
the earliest history, not alone of tbe un
tutored, but of the most civilized nation
to celebrate the anniversary of a great vic
tory. We find this practice prevailing to
a great extent with the Jewish and Roman
Catholic churches which are the most
ancient. Why, then upon this day do
we find around us so many gay and lively
heartsT The little girl with her flashily
colored dress, the boy with his bunch of
fire crackers and toy pistol. The mother
with ber loved ones who has laid aside
the cares and toil of this world for one
day. The fathers and brothers have
come also, to pay bdnor to whom and for
what occasion? The band discourses
gay and patriotic music in unison
with all the surroundings, even the little
bird fluttering from limb to limb on
yonder tree, seem to have caught the
patriotic spirit. It is for a purpose most
noble and most pure have we here met
tor, namely to celebrate the anniversary
of the independence of the United States
from the power of the prince of tyrants,
to pay tribute to the names of the illus
trious Jefferson, Adams, and all the
heros of the great struggle of independ
ence. What a proper and fit act it is far
the American to assemble on each and
every fourth day of July to celebrate
the independance of America. It renews
and kindles within one's heart the fire oi
patriotism; it teaches tbe soft and pliable
mind of the child the value and the
priceless gift of liberty such as we enjoy
in this republic. We should not only
give thanks to these great heroes for lib
erating us from the tyrant of Europeout
also for the form of government the
protection of our priceless liberty. We
have now a broad expanse of territory,
much more than at first, but governed by
tue same fundamental principles
that were laid down in the de
claration of independence from tbe
pen of the illustrious Jefferson. Let us
tarry a moment and talk of tbe construc
tion of this government. We have a
government within a government two
perfect governments, one within the
other. The "national" perfect in itself,
having all the essentials to make up a
perfect government vs. the legislative,
the house of congress, to enact the laws.
the judiciary, the supreme bench to
construe the laws, the executive, the
president of the United States, to enforce
The other, the state government the
legislature of the state to enact the laws,
the supreme court to construe the laws.
the executive to enforce the laws two
in all respects perfect the functions of
one cannot interfere with that of the
other. Tbe line of authority of each
denned ny the constitution or the general
government. This wise provision is th
bulwark of our system: t T"T 7,"
mima iii a not forced upon
mm tbe laws of Maine, neither is the
ami-irobibitionist of Pennsylvania
burdened with tbe prohibitory laws of
Iowa each state has its own police laws
dependant of its. sister state. Upon
this principle of our government tbe
speaker dwelt at some length, closing
amid great applause.
Rev. Jos. Kerr, of Milan also spoke.
There was a variety of enjoyable and
patriotic features aside from the speech
AT PORT BYRON,
Port Byron indulged in a rousing old
time jollification, which was largely at
tended, and was productive of a good
time to all. The celebration was held
at Barber's Falls, below the town, and E.
T. Bittinger was president of the dav.
In tbe morning there was a game of ball
between the Zuma nine, No. 2, and the
Port Byron club, which resulted in a
victory for the Port Byronites by a score
of 16 to 15. In the afternoon the Zuma
Red Caps defeated the locals by a score
of 10 to 2. There was a great diversity
of amusements, including sack and po
tato races and other sports, and Rev.
Bowers, of LeClaire, delivered an ora
tion. In the evening there were fire
works and an excursion up the river on
AT OTHEB PLACES.
Throughout the county people congre
gated to celebrate the nation's natal
day, and at all tbere was a happy, pa
triotic time. At Cable, just over tbe
Mercer county line, there was a demon
strative assemblage and exercises in
keeping with the occasion.
I)oda-ed Then Again.
Congressman W. H. Gest, who has
heretofore partly gained the reputation
of being an exceptionally skillful dodger,
even among his own political friends, has
"fooled em" again. He arrived home
from Washington Wednesday night and
after making a circuitous back-alleyed
trip around the town, joined his family in
camp on Big Island. The artful scheme'
ing of our M. C. is admirable, and tbe
motive that prompts the same not what
could be called blamable.
