KINGSBURY & SON,
1705 Secend A venae.
We were approached a few
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
upon an additional payment of $3.75 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 $6; we will swear it's worth
whatever you say. We place these tickets in the community to keep the
25 cents that we collect. Oh, 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
rtred, 12r.ts 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 f 2.75, a handsome profit on this extra picture and frame. Eh?
Of course we prefer to work this scheme tbrou photo
grapher bu w r bound to work it through tome 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 woiik such questionable tactics. The only means we use to
create business are:
1st. We make only the finest quality of work and that at popular prices.
21. We guarantee satisfaction.
Hil. Our Gallery contains more and better instruments, back-grounds
and all appliances for making Photos, twice over, 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
Hock Island is our excuse for exposing the true inwardness of the scheme.

a Brother Attorney.
Although Eugene Lewis, Esq , of Mo
line, has resided in Rock Island county
long nough to have the personal ac
quaintance of nearly every person in the
county, it may not be amiss now that he
is a candidate before the people, to give
a short sketch of his life. He was born
on his father's farm at Claremont, N. H..
in the year 1839, and when old enough
to work did hU share to har
vest the crops, etc. He remained
on tie farm until 21 years of
age, meantime preparing himself
for college, entering the celebrated
DartsEiouth school at that age. He
gradut.ted with honors in 1864, and
moved to ' Palmyra, Wis., tnd began
teaching in the high school, but was
oblige 1 to give up this position shortly
after aids on account of a severe hem
orrhage of the lungs. Mr. Lewis had
previc usly studied law, and after rallying
some from his attack, returned to Clare
mont nd entered the law office of' Hon.
H. W. Parker afterwards a member of
In January, 18t!6, Mr. Lewis was ad
mitted to practice in the Supreme Judic
ial court of New Hampshire, locating In
Ilillsbiro county, where he practiced un
til Jute, 1869, when he came west, and
opened an office in Moline in July
of that year. In 1874 be was elect
ed ciiy attorney of Moline with but
three dissenting votes, and again in 187?
when the vote of Moline was three'
fourths republican, defeating the regular
repub ican nominee for that office. He
was tl e author of the first free public
library bill before the Illinois legislature.
and by his efforts, assisted by PI. H
Grove r, the town of Moline was induced
by a popular vote of two-thirds to estab
lisb the Moline public library, of which
he has been a director since 1872. It
was by his efforts and influence the money
was rtiised to build the Union street rail
wa , which brought about the five cent
fare between Rock Island and Moline,
thus securing a lasting benefit to the
community and the public generally.
In Mr. Lewis' legal attainments, how-
ever, it may be properly said, lies his
strongest endorsement to the office to
which he aspires. In order that he
might give an unbiased opinion of his
legal qualifications, an AR3CS reporter
appro iched Judge Ira O. Wilkinson,
who volunteered the following high en
comium of Mr. Lewis.
"I consider him a very sound law
yer It deed," said the Judge. "IIe is
deliberate, thorough and I know
from 1 is methods and business principles
that hi has a systematic education, and I
consider him unusually informed on legal
questions. From professional associa
tion with him I have found him definite
and accurate in his statement of legal
principles. His cases have been of such
importance both as to the questions in
volved and to intricacy of those questions
as to legal propositions, as to require
clear judgment and the posses
sion of the best legal knowledge and
I should at all times give great weight to
his judgment, and think him entitled to
it. Both as a lawyer and a man I deem
him ttoroughly reliable in every respect.
I think he does well in whatever ho un
dertakes and am satisfied therefore that
he would make one of the most industri
ous, conscientious and able off prosecu
tor." And this is the cktww
democrats of Rock Island have nominat
ed for state's attorney. How do you
like his record? Why can't republicans
as we 1 as democrats vote for him in
place of the republican nominee? lie is
the miin for the place; let's elect him.

At its regular meeting Thursday even
ing th 3 Rock Island Citizens' Improves
ment ussociation will begin the discus
sion of topics bearing upon the advance

as par.akes of the nature of public pro

association at its last meeting to prepare
subjects for these discussions and com
posed of Messrs. Wm. Jackson. Phil
Mitchi 11 and E. H. Guyer, has decided
upon .he following as the question for
Thursday night's meeting: "What course
should be pursued by the city of Rock
Island in relation to the proposed via
duct i i view of the late law of congress
on that subject."
ThU Is a topic in which every public
spirited citizen of Rock Island is interest

fore bo more of the nature of a public
meetitg than strictly for association
members, and everybody who is interest

city sl.ould attend and participate. The
discussions are open to all who may de

The Boston clergyman, the Rev. E. M. P.
Wells, was early in life a schoolmaster. He
told me that he regarded among tho most im
portant of his duties that of playing with his
boys at their hours of recreation, aud so that
he always insisted in joining in their games
of ball and marbles and other pastimes in
some capacity that should, as it were, bring
them to a common social level at least once in
the twenty-four hours; that thus he had an
opportunity to know and love them free from
the restraint of official position, aud that
they were drawn nearer together iu heart for
their work. "Yes," he said, as his mind re
verted to those days, "had 1 to choose be
tween the two I think I would have let an
other man hear their lessons, but I would
have insisted on my right to play with them;
I could have thus done more good, and the
lessons would have come out all right" Bos
