THE HOCK ISLAND AHGUS, WEDNESDAY,
Al'awtf Mono Mlmilanty ta that r
Hark Inlaad 4JlDlliirTw Poat
Notwithstanding that both Rock Island
and Moline are possessed of free deliver;
service and the postofflee is of no minor
importance in view of such circum
stances. Moline urtres as an argument
against consolidntion the tact that it
might be deprived of its postofT.ee.
C. A- Hose, of the Moline Tump com
pany, cites to the Repuhlienn the case of
the city of Kingston, N. Y., as one where
two towns have been consolidated and
still retains two postofllces Kingston
and Rondout though the consolidation
was effected several years previous to the
time of his leaving there in 1874.
The circumstances, while not identical,
as Moline will never be anywhere near
Rock Island in size, are somewhat similar
to the case of Moline and Kin k Island
Kingston is one of tin: old towns, its his
tory listing back prior to the revolution
ary war and its inhabitants are largely
made up of the descendants of the early
Dutch settlers, some of whom are quite
wealthy and prominent in political affairs
in the state. After the terminus of the
Erie and Delaware canals was located at
Rontlout that place began to grow. It
finally outstripped its rival and having
acquired over lO.OiHt inhabitants sought
to acquire a city charter. Kingston had
not the requisite number for this purpose
hut some of its citizens for years suc
ceeded in checkmating the people of
Rondout in every effort they made to get
a charter from the legislature.
Finally a compromise was made, by
which the citizens of both places agreed
to unite, and secure a city charter retain
ing the name of Kingston for that of the
new municipality, the Rondont portion
being divided into four, and the Kingston
portion into three wards. At the first
election each had a canditate for mayor.
The Rondont man was elected, and at the
expiration of his two years term was re
elected without opposition. Since that
time everything has. passed off to the en
tire satisfaction of all parties, a new city
hall having been erected near what was
formerly the dividing line between the
two places. By consulting the postal
guide for 1SS9 it is seen that the two
postoffices of Kingston and Rondout are
still retained. Instances of this kind are
however, rare, and the rule with the govs
eminent is to consolidate the offices.

containing nine large convenient rooms,

The )tlllnr I retualory Again.
The Moline lHia)ch, speaking of the
objection of Hock Island to the location
of the proposed crematory of that city so
close to Rock Island, continues:
The bearer of this protest was informed
of another change in the location, the
Water rower company having this morn
ing agreed to sell the city a lot of equal
size 140x142 fronting on First street,
and 212 feet nearer the canal. This
brings the location within thirty feet of
the canal, and into a district not platted
into building lots, but reserved by the
Water Power company as a manufactur
ing district. Surveyor Paddock was down
there this forenoon surveying the lot and
the site for the burner. It has been de
cided to locate the burner in the rear
(east) end of the lot, to remove it as far
as possible from First street. The msn
living first south of the new location
does not think the burner will be ohjec
tionable. There is but one house in the
Neighborhood across the Rock Island line
and that is occupied by a colored man
who seems to be entering no protest.
Mayor Wessell was asked today why
people o far away from the proposed lo
cation are kicking, and he replied that it
was from a mistaken notion that the
tjhing was to be a nuisance. They forget
fr do not understand that the city is to
f have the privilege of rejecting it, if after
a fair trial it is found to be objectionable
In any way, and that the city does not
want to create a nuisance.
Brown In a 1'rartlral Man.
While theengineer andflls fireman were
dining in one of the private cars on the
special that brought the C, B. &, . of
ficials west the other day, Supt. Brown
ran the engine and Asst. Supt. McPhart
land shoveled the "black diamonds." For
about a stretch of sixty-five miles where
the track was comparatively straight, the
engineer pro tem let her speed a little.
One of the officials said "the telegraph
poles looked like a tight board fence;"
but when asked for the time the sixty
five miles were run in he added: 'Better
not say anything about the time. Mr.
Brown is young yet and we don't want
him to have a record." Creston Time.

If there is anything in this world that
the small boy, and the big boy, too, lets
himself out on, it is the circus. Tomor
row the boys of this city and vicinity and
the people generally are to have a chance
to see a circus that is a circus a circus
that reaches away over and surpasses in
magnificence and variety anything that
has been contemplated hereabouts for a
long time, if indeed it does not entirely
eclipse anything that has ever been seen
in these parts. This, at least, is the les
son that has been learned from New
York, where the people thought they
knew everything about circuses.
But it remained for Adam Forepaugh,
the veteran showman, to show the New
Yorkers what the big modern circus was
capable of, and he did it in such a way as
made their hair curl, so to speak. The
idea of giving Buffalo Bill's Wild West
entertainment under a roof never struck
the Gothemiles, but Mr. Forepaugh
showed them that it was not only possi
ble, but there were opportunities and
facilities for enhancing the attractiveness
of the entertainment. He introduced a
startling innovation in the shape of
dusters last rally, a tiagtc and
realistic denouement that, while striking
the most experienced by its accuracy to
the historical detail, amazed the general
populace by its graphic and dramatic
pictures of the horrors of that diabolical
lie has alsi spent, the summer in
searching thrcugh his agents for the
greatest and Most famous of arenic per-
farmers and the most expensive. How
ever that does not stand in the way of
such a showman as Adam Forepaugh.
Adam Jr. has not been idle either. He
has been wrestling assiduously with the
horses and elephants, and other species
of the brute creation, and has evolved
wonderful results. Among them one
may be noted. He has eight elephants.
four male and four females, and the
quartette of partners go through the
figures of a quadrille with such accuracy
as far as time and step are concerned,
that while being laughable in a great
measure the feat is also astounding. It
is one of the greatest triumphs that young
Adam Forepaugh has achieved in the way
of utilizing the intelligence of brainy
It would be invidious to notice any
particular feature among the hosts of
museum, menagerie, artistic, physical,
zoological, skilled and talented attrac
tions that the great show possesses. A
magnificent street parade will be made

Among Errors Kuinooi to Health.
One of the most mischievous and most
common is the indiscriminate and too
frequent use of purgatives. Such medi
cines, if well chosen and reasonably re
sorted to, are certainly useful, but many
persons select the worst, fly from one to
the other, and employ them when there
is no occasion, or their utility has ceased.
To establish on a permanent basis a reg
ular condition of the bowels, the finest
alterative is Hostetter's Stomach Bitters.
It is botanic in origin, and a safe succe-
daneum for those objectionable drugs,
calomel and blue pill; it does not gripe
or drench the bowels like the ordinary
evacnenls, and it not only reforms irreg
ularity of the habit of body, but remedies
the disorder and inactivity of the liver
and stomach, which usually accompany
that condition. Rheumatism, kidney
trouble, malaria complaint and nervous
ness are removed by the BitUrs.
