KINGSBURY & SON,
1705 Secend Avenue.
We were approached a few days ago to become a party to
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 bolder any time within six months to demand of you
upon an additional payment of $2.75 making a total of $3 (Ml a dozen
Cithincts 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 you say. We place these tickets in the community to keep the
2.1 cents that we collect. Oh, yes, the puMic will bite at worse than this.
Hut :In a HTful hi hcrnc as the frame you give away costs f 12.00 per bun
dred, 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 be
would pet 2.73, a liinilsome profit on this extra picture and frame, FhT
Of course we prefer to work this scheme through the leading photo
grapher hut we are hound 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, hut he will if be can, because you see
this scheme gives him better prices than he now obtains."
It is needless to say that RASMUSSE.V iloclined to employ peddlers and
tramps to work such questionable tactics. The only means we use to
create business are:
lt. We make only the finest quality of work and that at popular prices.
2 I. We guarantee satisfaction.

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 tbey are now being employed here in
Rock Island is our excuse for exposing the true inwardness of the scheme.

A QUEER BOX.
A Maalral BMrteat That Was
Takra Ifcr a Barlal CasketA Huprr
riser Marpii aed.
Many persors who arc in the habit of
dropping into .he office of the Rock Isl
and bouse whtn in the business part of
town, have doubtless observed with cur
iosity the suggestive looking mahogany,
silver-handled box on the window sill
back of the clerk's desk. The queer
looking object is none other than the
handsome music box won by F. W.
Young, the trtln dispatcher at the Bur
lington depot, it a r a file some time since,
who left it at the hotel soon afterward
until he could and a better place to keep
it. But the bix has every appearance
of a burial casket in its present position
with but one end distinctly shown. The
wood is identical in looks to that ordin
arily used for such purposes, while a
large silver handle adds to the impression
created in the mind upon first observance.
But If examination and investigation is
made, the result is anything but a solemn
revelation, for the instrument plays some
of the most popular airs.
During the recent session of the board
of supervisors, one of the rural legislators
noticed the box and at first impulse very
naturally took it for a coffin and innos
cently asked tae clerk if some one was
"Yes," was the response, and the clerk
seeing the opportunity for a little fun,
added, "but there is something so pecu
liar about the dead man's actions since
death that we have decided to be in no
hurry about btrying him."
"Why! Why! ejaculated the county
law maker, wi.h more exclamation than
inquisitiveness. "why, bow in thunder
can a man 'act' after he is dead; that's
what I'd like to know."
"To tell the truth old man,' responded
the clerk, leaning over the counter and
catching the supervisor by the button
hole of his coat collar, "to tell the truth
its the funnkst thing I eyer heard of;
but say, confidentially between you and
I and Jim Lane. I believe the fellow's spirit
is in there ic stead of bis body. We
haven't dared to open the lid since we put
him in there, but the sound that comes
out of there some times would wake an
ordinary dead man."
The supervisor's eyes started and look
ed as if the ent ire undertaking of running
Rock Island county economically had
suddenly been thrust upon his individ
ual shoulders. "Are the noises hideous?"
he ventured fit ally.
"Hideous! veil you just ought to hear
them sometimi s, but then again they are
as sweet and enchanting as the notes
of one of our chamber maids. This is
about the tine of the day we hear the
best of it generally.
The farmer looked alarmed, but he
put on a look of determination and said
he believed he would stay awhile. The
clerk had in tie meantime given the bell
boy a wink wl.ich he understood, and the
boy after goinj over to the box, slipped
away again unnoticed. At that instant
the box struck up one of its liveliest
strains. The supervisor stood for a sec
ond as if struck dumb. Then the thought
visibly dawned upon him and with the
remark that hs had "never seen one that
big before," he invited the crowd into

No person fhall commit an assault, or

The section relative to cruelty to ani

in Rock Island than the previous section
and is much broader in its scope than
some may be led to believe. It is as fol

THE ISLAND CONTRACT.
Major Maacer'a laveatlcatloa Still la
rrruTke President or the
Maj. Sanger continues his investlgas
tion of the records of Maj. McGinnis, in
connection with the letting of the stone
contract to the Cleveland Stone company
for the new dam. The major finds the
task a very arduous one as there is such
a mass of matter to examine, and one
that is likely to consume his time until
next Monday or Tuesday.
Mr. J. M. Worthington, president of
the Cleveland Stone company, arrived at
the Harper house this mornine, and
spent a part of the day with
Maj. Sanger, and also called upon
Maj. McGinnis. When approached by
an Akous reporter he declined to say
much upon the subject, except that the
Cleveland Stone company's side of the
case was being set forth in an affidavit
which would be forwarded to Major San
ger on his return home.
"We have been entirely misrepresented
in this matter," be remarked, "as there
has been no pooling of stone companies.
We were approached by two different
persons to go into a pool, hut both times
declined, as in the first place we don't
do business that way, and again be
cause it would have been no object for
us to do it, as neither of the companies
that wanted to pool were in the posi
tion that we were to furnish the stone."
When asked as to the difference of
about $ 30,000 between the first and sec
ond bids of the Cleveland Stone compa
ny, Mr. Worthington's reply was:
"The specifications as to the style of
the cutting were so chaneed that we
could reduce the stone $13,000, while
the difference in freighting between the
rough and finished stone was $14,000.
This is one reason why it was so much
cheaper to have the stone cut by us at
the quarries than on the island the dif
ference in freight between rough and
dressed, being fifty pounds to the cubic
foot in favor of the dressed, and this we
save, of course, to say nothing of cheap
er labor and longer hours of labor at the
rluae of the Teacher' Intilate.
The two weeks of the Teachers' Coun
ty Institute came to a close this after-
nooon. Although in session but a
very short time, it has proved
in the hands of the able instruc
tors, sufficient for imparting a great
amount of useful knowledge. The one
hundred and eighty members haye made
good use of the time. The morning ses
sions have been entirely devoted to the
discussion of different methods of pre
senting the several studies to the schol
ars in the most beneficial way; in other
words, fitting the members of the insti
tute for the capacity of thorough teach
ers. The hour spent in the afternoon
has been entirely giyen up to academic
study. Altough the class attending the
afternoon session was not as large as that
attending the morning session, it has
proven to be very profitable.
Fire Alarm Protective ( hsru.
The fire alarm protective chart, with toy
attached, has be1 a patented by an ingenious
citizen of Chicago. It consi&ts of a small tin
chart, with the locution of the nearest box
and instructions how to use the key, and the
tiumlier of tho box printed upon it. It is
proposed to place tbtwe keys with as many
householders as ossiblo in eai-h fire district
of the city. When a fire is discovered the
discoverer will thou be able to locate immedi
ately the nearest fire alarm box anil turn in
the alarm. As it is now the locations of the
boxes are know n to very few, and still fewer
know how to work them when found. Con
sequently a fire generally gains good bead
way liefore the department is notified, and
considerable loss is in this manner incurred.

Actors Who Look Young.
A few days ago three men stood talking
together m front of tho Fifth Avenue boteL
The casual observer would not have thought
any one of the three to tie miK-h over forty,

Tet this man was Joseph Whiting, who waa
a promising young actor in tne early days of
the war, and his companions were Stuart
Robson and W. J. Florence. To tha many
people who have laughed at and with Robson
as tho juvenile and innocent Bertie of "The

he is about twelve years older than his former
partner, W. H. Crane, seems almost incredi
ble. Mr. Florence is about fifty-eight, but
