KINGSBURY & SON,
1705 Secend Avenue.
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
t visit every house, offering for sale a ticket costing the purchaser 25 cents.
This will entitle the bolder any time within six months to demand of you
upon nn additional payment of $3.75 making a total of $3.00 a dozen
t atitnets and an extra picture in a gilt frame, ibis outnt or Irame and
pictures you can represent as worth $4, (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. Ob, yes, tbe
1 Hut its a great scheme as the frame you give away costs $12.00 per bun
tdred, 12cts with every order. Suppose one of your neighbors were to go
' Into it, they now advertise their cabinets at $2.00 per dozen, say the extra
picture anil frame would cost an additional 25cts, through our scheme he
would get f 2.75, a handsome profit on this extra picture and frame, EhT
Of course we prefer to work this scheme through tbe leading photo
grapher hut we are bound to work it tbro-a "" Yes, we may
J i' strike an irresponsible party or he may get closed up. We give no bond
'.thatbe will continue in business, but be will if be can, because you see
this scheme gives him better prices than he now obtains."
It is needless to say that UA9MUSSEN declined to employ peddlers and
: tkamps to woiik such questionable tactics. The only means we use to
? create business are:
j 1st. We make only the finest quality of work and that at popular prices.
1 2d. We guarantee satisfaction.

- Whenever such inducements can be offered it is unnecessary to employ
"Tramp Ticket Fakirs," but that they are now being employed here in
""lock Inland is our excuse for exposing the true inwardness of the scheme.

In this connection it is interesting to
recall the fact that in the face of in
creased demands for funds this year the
net liabilities a year ago were upwards of
$3,000 in excess of those of this year.
The report of Treasurer Lynde showed
a balance against the school fund of
$1,690.51; but there yet remains due
from the county treasurer $5 641.57,
leaving a balance of about $4,000 in
favor of tlie district.
The usual annual report was ordered

THE BRAND OF THE BRICK.
The ttaestlon ae f the Kiad or Pa via;
Material to be Ce en ajerond
Avraae The sidewalk Ordlaanee.
The contractors who have received the
contract for paving Second avenue have
not as yet fully indicated the brand of
brick they desire to use. The contract
between them and the city stipulates that
the material shall be Galesburg or Bloom-
ington vitrified brick, or brick equally as
good. Tbe firm's original bid to the
council placed the Bardolph brick four
cents below tbe Bloomington and Gales
burg brick, and many in the city believe
it equally as good. By the provisions of
the contract Atkinson & Olof can ubc
Bardolph brick by proving to the satisfac
tion of the mayor and street and alley
committee that it is as good as either
Bloomington or Galesburg. While the
city and likewise the property holders
affected would save by using the Bar
dolph, a rigid and abundant tesV should
be made and its merits established con
clusively as upon an equal with the other
brands mentioned before it is adopted.
At all events the interests of property
holders who are to pay for the improve
ment, as well of the city should be care
fully and zealously guarded. This should
be tbe first object and duty of the city
authorities, and to that end should
make proper exactions of the con
tractors. A cheaper brick, equally as
good as those specified in the con
tract, would be satisfactory of course,
but a cheaper brick of an inferior quals
Uy should be guarded against. There
fore the nature of the brick, as well as
the standing of the company, should be
thoroughly investigated before any par
ticular kind of brick is adopted.
If the Bardolph brick is not acceptable,
the contractors should not fear imposi
tion in the selection either of Blooming
ton or Galesburg brick, as there ate two
different factories at Galesburg and four
at Bloomington, and certainly all cannot
be rung into a pool to force exhorbitant
prices on tbe Rock Island contractors. If
such tactics should be attempted the
Rock island city council might adopt
measures and protect the local contrac
tors. AS TO SIDEWALkS.
Tbe brick sidewalk ordinance is a law,
Mayor McConochie having placed bis
seal upon it yesterday. Tbe ordinance
pertains to the laying of brick walks
though there is no objection to the use of
tile or stone within the territory covered
by it in front of the premises of 846
persons, all within the fire limits or the
central portion of the city. The bricks
in walks thus provided for are to be laid
on edge, to a uniform grade, with curb
stone of either limestone or sandstone,
properly dressed, along the gutter lines.
And in order that its provisions may not
be evaded, the ordinance makes it un
lawful to "lay, repair or maintian a
wooden sidewalk," or any kind of side
walk not as good as that provided by the
ordinance, with a penalty of not less than
$20 nor more than $100 for violation
This excludes planks and cinders from
the district, while leaving the property
holders free to construct walks of stone,
tile, concrete or brick, tbe latter, how
ever, to be invariably laid on edge.
The Contest Catte.
The contest case against Wm. McCon
ochle as mayor of Rock Island, was taken
up before Judge Adams this morning and
Mr. C. L. Walker, of Sweeney & Walker,
attorney, for Mr. McConochie, entered
a motion to quash the summons and dis
miss the suit on tbe ground that the sum
mons should have been for tbe June pro
bate term of court, instead of tbe July
law term, and that too much time had
elapsed to take it up now. The court
took the point under advisement, and the
case, it is not likely will now, rf "

Among the many curious (wychical experi
ments thut are now attractiug the attention
of scientific minds, tbe oue to which the term
"acrophobia" has liven applied has several
points of interest. Dr. VeRa has recently de
scribed the phenomena in bib own rase.
Though by nature not at all timid, all his
courage leaves him when above ground. He
complains of palpitations in mounting a step
ladder, for instance; finds it extremely un
pleasant to ride on the top of a coach or even
look out of a first story window. This idiocjn
crasy forbids him the use of an elevator, and
tbe mere thought of those who have cast
themselves down from high places causes
tingling all over his person. His acrophobia
even goes so far that tbe thought of the earth
spinning through space is enough to cause
