Mr. R. J. McGee, who a few years ago
moved his marble and granite works to
Chicago, has realized the necessity of a
branch establishment at least in Rock
Isla id, and yesterday came to this city
and purchased through the agency of
Geo W. D. Harris, for f 3,500, the store
room on Second avenue between Eigh
teenth and Nineteenth streets, heretofore
owi ed by Mr. A. Rabe, and will at once
establish a branch house here.
A Rather Inappropriate Emblem Maid
t be la the Mtceple ef the First M.
E. uhareh Heme what Aatantac
Those who are engaged in the task of
removing so much of the old First M. E.
church building at the corner of Fifth
avenue and Nineteenth street, as is nec
essary to make way for the elegant new
edifice, may make a surprising discovery
about the time they are completing their
task, and the result may be considerable
of a shock to members of the church,
some of whom have worshipped in it for
nearly thirty-five years. In order to ex
plain what the workmen may, if reports
be true, find, a bit of the church's histo
ry must be related.
When the present building was erected
in 1855, Mr. Henry Uousman, of this
city, who, with his wife, was at that time
one of the most devoted members, not
only contributed considerable cash
money, but donated the copper ball and
other ornaments on tbe top of the stee
ple, which has since grown familiar
to everybody in Rock Island.
Some years after the church had
been entirely completed and occupied
Mr. Housman was shocked-and mortified
to learn from one of his men that two of
his hands to whom he had entrusted tbe
work of putting up the steeple ornaments,
had played a very bad trick upon bim,
and this was how they did it. Before
putting on tbe large copper ball they se
cured a good sized flask of Mononga-
hela whisky, wrapped it carefully in sev
eral newspapers and enclosed it in tbe
copper ball, which was then carefully and
firmly fastened in place on the top most
point of the church's steeple. Mr. Fred
II ass, afterward one of the most success
ful business men in the city and now one
of our wealthiest and best known citizens,
was then setving an apprenticeship under
Mr. Housman and he having learned of the
mischievous caper of the men, informed
Mr. Housman of it. The latter was of
course indignant and very angry, but it was
too late to mend the trouble, and bo he
adopted as the best course entire silence
on the subject, and did not reveal bis
knowledge of the fact until recently.
when he learned the church was to be
removed, when he informed Mr. Gue of
tbe circumstances, requesting bim that
when that steeple was removed, he
wanted to look for the bottle of whisky
on its top and to see whether or not his
men really did do such a trick, or
whether they were simply attempting to
annoy him by sending such a message
thorueh the boy, Fred Hass.
Since the original erection of the
church, Mr. Housman has fcpent several
years west, and has now come back to
Rock Island. Both the men who put up
the copper ball are now dead, so that
only actual investigation will reveal
whether the fiak is in it or not. The
search for it will be awaited with interest.

The attendance ai the opening exer
cises of the county institute this morn
ing. although much larger than that of the
two preceding morning, is still small.
However, the tardiness on the part of
some is excusable on account of the long
distance they are compelled to come.
Prof. Ray has not yet made bis ap
pearance, but it is hoped be will be able
ta be bere in a day or two. This vacan
cy in the list of instructors is being filled
by Profs. Bishop, of Rock Island, and
Griffith, of Moline. The class in primary
reading and writing mefhods Is very in
teresting, and many new and ingenious
methods were shown by Prof. Felmley,
the instructor, by which the little ones
may be interested in school work.
Prof. Ray's class in primary English,
which is for tbe present in charge of
Prof. Griffith, is instructed in the a-ay in
which the primary scholar should be
taught English. It was shown that the
scholar should be taught first, bow to
see, or in other words to observe; second
ly, how to talk, and lastly how to write.
The afternoon session which is civen
up to acsdemic study, had to be omitted
this afternoon on account of the inability
of the instructor, Mr. Bishop, to obtain
tne necessary material for class work.

There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucus lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
yon have a rumbling sound or imperfect
bearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is tbe result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
bearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi
tion of tbe mucus surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for
any rase of deafness (caused by catarrh)
that we can not cure by taking Hall's
Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars, free.
