KINGSBURY & SON,
1705 Secend Avenne.
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 bolder any time within six months to demand of you
upon an additional payment of $2.75 making a total of $3.00 a dozen
Cabinets and an extra picture in a gilt frame. This outfit of frame and
pictures you can represent as worth $i, 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.
But its a great scheme as the frame you give away costs 1 12. 00 per hun
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 and frame would cost an additional 25cts, through our scheme he
would get 2. 75, a handsome profit on this extra picture and frame. I'h?
Of course we prefer to work this b heme through the leading photo
grapher but we are hound to work it through some one. Yes, we may
Btrike 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 give him better prices than he now obtains."
It is needless to say that RASMUSSEX declined to employ peddlers and
tk am in to work much 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.
24. We guarantee satisfaction.
Kd. Our Gallery contains more and better instruments, back-grounds
and all appliances for making Photos, twice ovct, 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.

was said in lat t night's Aitocs, the skull
was remarkab y well preserved and the

The skull could not have remained
more than thrne years where it was found,
as the street as entirely filled up at that
time when t le Union Street Railway
company first built its line through there.
The dirt was brought from the bluffs east
towards Augjstaua college and it must
have come w tU it, but it is strange it
was not discovered before.
As it is there is no theory as to
its identity or how long it had been in
the ground. It is certain, however, as

in his petition states that the Brotherhood

plication of J. W. Quinn, deceased, aeers
tiheate of insurance upon his life and
named therein John Quftin as the benefi
ciary. J. W. Quinn held the certificate at

county, he received injuries from the
effects of which he died. Shortly after
his death the Brotherhood of Railway
Brakemen requested that the certificate
of insurance be delivered to them,
which was dine. The plaintiff states
that all the requirements of the constitu

that there is now duebim from said asso

that the deftndant association and its

About the Rork Inland Coanty
Him.sdai.k. July 25. nilladale is a
small village twenty-four miles northeast
of Rock Island, located on the C. B. &
Q. railroad. The population of the vil
lage proper will number about one hun
dred. The land upon which the town
stands is quite low and the soil is sandy.
It was owned by Jaa.and Richard Hill,
was laid out about 1867. but the plat was
not filed until 1869. The C, B. A Q.,
then the Rockford, Rock Island A St.
Louis railroad, was built the fall and win
ter of 1868, and the first cars ran over the
road in March of the following year.
Among the first business houses built
was that of Machan & Taylor in 1S69.
The proprietors carried a full line of dry
goods, groceries, boots and shoes, no
tions, etc. This firm was succeeded by
Machan & Co., who were succeeded by J.
C, S perry, and he in turn by M. Ward.
Trie building was then idle for a short
time, when Schuck A Duncan stocked it
with eroceries. They were bought out
in 1883 by Fender & Wiggins, who were
superceded by Fender A Wendle, the
present proprietors. During their short
stay they have built up a large and lucra
tive trade, which is constantly increasing.
Last spring Mr. J. M. Martin put in a
stock of dry goods and notions. His
trade, together with Fender & Wendle, is
large and constantly growing. They en
joy the full confidence of their patrons,
and this by their fair and honest dealings.
Beal Bros, started a grain and stock
business in 1873. and did an extensive
business until 1883, when they failed:
their failure is still to be felt among the
farmers, as the amount taken from the
neighborhood was about $30,000. This
is the only failure the village ever had,
and it was a great surprise to many, as
they were considered as safe as a bank,
and large sums were frequently de
posited with them. The town has for
the past three years had a boom on a
small scale. The railroad company
bought ten acres of ground land of F.
Taggart with which they are improving
their road bed. The working of this pit
has employed at various limes from
twenty to fifty men, all hoarding here,
The town has never fully recovered the
failure of Beal Bros., but is gradually
getting into its old place. There are two
firms in the slock business Pearsall
Bros, and M. D. Hauberg, who buy all
over this rmrt of the country.
J as. I'onaboe also managed a general
implement, hardware and lumber busi
ness for one year. Last spring J. F.
Mill began business with a stock of lum
ber, building material, implements, ve
hicles, etc. He is the present postmas
Mr. Schrader shortly afterwards built
the Union hotel, saloon and dance hall.
C. Gerhard t bought him out several years
ago and a short time afterward put in a
stock of dry goods, groceries, etc. He
has quite an extensive trade.
Bremer Stout for a long time operated
a blacksmith shop which has since
changed hands several times. John

Wm. Vosburg was for several years the

still to be seen and it speaks for itself.

authorized to put in a brick or tile walk
on the north side of school lot No. 4.
Fred. Hastings and Willie Everhard, two
Davenport boys, aged about fifteen years,
went out to Woodruff's Island to bunt
this morning, and as a not unexpected
consequence, one of them was shot. They
were at the south end of Sear's dam on
the island, when through some means
unknown to either of the boys. Ever
hard's gun went off and a load of shot
embodied itself in the calf of Uasting's
right leg. The boys dropped their guns
and rushed screaming to the toll gate,
where Mr. W. L. Sweeney, the keeper,
cared for the wounded boy and his
frightened companion until the facts
could be communictaed to Davenport,
and a physician sent for from that city.
Later the boys were brought in on a car
and sent home.
The Hastings boy's injuries are not
considered at all serious.
