KINGSBURY & SON,
1705 Secend Avenue.
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 holder any time within six months to demand of you
npon 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 $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, the public will bite at worse than. this.
But its a great scheme as the frame you give away costs $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, Bay the extra
picture and frame would cost an additional 25cts, through our scheme be
would get 2.75, a handsome profit on this extra picture and frame, FhT
Of course we prefer to work this scheme through -the leading photo
grapher but we are bound to work it through some one. Yes, we may
strike an irresponsible party or he may get closed up. We give no bond
, that be will continue in business, but he will if he can, because you see
this scheme gives him better prices tban he now obtains."
It is needless to say that RASMUSSEN declined to employ peddlers and
tramps to work such questionable tactics. The only means we nse to
create business are:
1st. We make only the finest quality of work and that at popular prices.
2d. We guarantee satisfaction.
3d. Our Gallery contains more and belter instruments, back-grounds
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 they are now being employed here in
Rock Island is our excuse for exposing the true inwardness of the scheme.

The reat Ceaabtneel Hhtwi and Na
tional Wl d WestKihlbltto la RorV
lalaad IFke Veatrea Hireet Pa
rade. Today wt s signalized in Rock Island
by the advent of the famed Forepaugh
show and gi-eat national wild west exhi
bition, now wedded and welded in one
stupendous whole and giving one grand
exhibition for the same price of admis
sion for which there was formerly a sepa
rate charge The shows were a little late
in getting i l owing to the long run from
Peoria and trouble with "hot boxes" on
the heavily loaded cars, but they arrived
in good shape over the Burlington road
and the well drilled gang of experts were
not long in getting the tents pitched in
Brooks' flel 1 in the eastern part of the
city and situated between the lines of the
Mollne & Rock Island and Union street
railways, ell east-bound cars running
direct to the grounds, and Supt. Schnit-
ger had provided ample accomodations
It was af ernoon when the parade got
down town, the streets along which the
pageant passed were crowded not only
with people from this city, but Daven
port, Moliae and all the neighboring
hamlets and villages. The street display
was in many respects a novel one. There
were hundr-nls of magnificent highbred
horses, scores of lady and gentlemen
riders, dozens of open dens of wild
beasts, golden tableaux care, camels, ele
phants, and. not least, a band of genuine
Ogallola Sioux Indians, with their chief,
Lone Feather, all in war paint and wear
ing their primitive blankets.
The opening performance began at 2
o'clock, and attracted a large crowd of
people. From beginning to end the per
formance was succession of pleasing
and often s.artling novelties. It opened
with a sent s of graphic pictures of life in
the far wett. The Indians attacked the
Deadwood mail coach, and after much
firing on t ie pari of the cowboys, were
repulsed; tien they caught a trapper and
would have Jturnt bim alive only the cow
boys oppor unely arrived a second time
and drove them off. California Frank
and Wild Horse Harry, a pair of wild
western cowboys, rode bucking ponies
and create 1 a world of merriment, and
everybody' blood run coll when a negro
horse thief was chased, lassoed, dragged
along the ground, hnng to the limb of a
tree and fir ally riddled with blank cart
ridges. Ti e climax to the Wild West ex
hibition was the Custer battle, in which
over 200 tcouts, soldiers, Indiana and
horses wete brought into play. In this
remarkable scene the horses, trained with
amazing skill by Adam Forepaugh, Jr
either ran back to tbeir quarters as their
riders dism wilted to fight as infantry, or.
as the firing commenced, fell to the
ground in oerfect simulation of death.
In the avenic performance which fol
lowed, Ad im Forepaugh, Jr., a prince
among animal trainers, presented his
school of educated elephants, horses,
ponies and dogs. A herd of eight ele
phants laughingly went through the
movement of an ojd fashioned quadrille.
taking their places, bowing to tneir part
ners, crossing over, and fiottlly waltzing,
like veteran devotees of Terpsichore;
"Pickaninny," a clown elephant, pro
voked a world of fun; "John L.
Sullivan," a baby elephant, held
boxing glofe in his hand and knocked
out his k'ieper in two rounds; Blon
din, a brave little pony, unhesitating
ly walked a narrow rope covered plank
suspended in mid air; a troupe of bron
chos displayed amazing intelligence in
dancing ji;a, seesawing and picking out
figures and words; a school of stallions
jumped rope and performed many other
remarkablo feats; and greatest of all
"Eclipse," the most gallant pony in the
world, actually sprang from a swinging
platform t another, and then repeated
the jump through paper rings and a
blazing h top of fire. This was Adam
Forepaugh Jr'a. greatest triumph, and Is
the only horse in the world that performs
The rinp performance, which embraces
Mile. Marguerite Sivado, a famous Span
ish equestrienne; Orrin llollia, now the
greatest somersault horseback rider; Ju
lia and Tony Lowande, and Charles
Watson, a ho noted horseback riders; the
Eugenes, three remarkably skilled aerial
ista, who performed some astounding
feats upon the trapeze; the Maurels,
three grotesque dancars from Bengler's
circus London; the Farnum Brothers, in
a pyramidal chair performance; Hers
beck, extraordinary contortionist, who
seemed to bend his body inside out; Mile
Tournour, whose balancing in a high
trapeze wi.hout a net provoked admira
tion; Kelly and Ashby, amusing Chinese
acrobats; Johnny Purvis, the old-time
clown, who delighted the youngest with
his two lit tie donkey comedians, and for
ty other p irformers.
The hippodrome, with its Roman
standing and four-horse chariot races,
was intent ely exciting, and when Adam
Forepaugh. Jr., proved himself the great
est horseman in the world by driving
thirty-one horses with thb speed of a
whirlwind around the quarter mile track
the enthut iasm knew no bouudi.
The laat. performance will be given to
night on t le grounds in the east part of
Mare :Bdeee aad Enterprise.
Another evidence of the great stride
Rock Island is making in the building
way this .year and of the confidence and
enterprise shown by its citizens, was
evinced ills morning when Mr. B. Win
ter let a contract to Mr. Chris. Scbreiner
for a hatdsome two story brick building
with doible store front and attrac
tive design to be put up on his
recently acquired property on the
south skie of Third avenue just west
of Seventeenth street. It will be known
as "Winter's block," cost between $4,000
and $5,0H0 and the Wholesale liquor firm
will occtpy both entire floors after its
completic n about November 1 .
It is n it improbable that a bacdaome
block wlI rise on the southeast corner of
this block and a street car barn on, the
THE RED CROSS RELIEF.
Clara Barton Mnews What Bark Isl
and Has Aided the SteMe Society
Representatives tod at Johnstewn.
Miss Clara Barton, president of the
National Red Cross society, has written
a letter to J. F. Robinson, cashier of the
Rock Island National bank, who for
warded the Rock Island contributions to
the Johnstown relief fund under date of
Red Cross Camp, Johnstown, Pa., July
29, and it reads:
Dear Mr. Robinson: Following my
dispatch please find receipt for draft of
$77.25, making an aggregate ot fi,-
293.16 donated by your citizens for the
relief of the sufferers from the floods of
the Conemaugh Valley. Along with this
is received the filled blank indicating the
full amount sent for this most commen
dable purpose both in money and ma
terial. Will you have the kindness to
bear the heartfelt thanks of my organiza
tion to your generous and kind-hearted
citizens, assuring them of the gratitude of
those whom they have aided m their ter
l ou will pardon me, I trust, if I en
close an invitation to a little social gath
ering of last Saturday, as well as a re
porter a description of the occasion, in
order that you may have some tangible
evidence of the direct applications of
your gifts and their usefulness. We com
mence another building like the one de
scribed directly. Several should be
erected here, and which we may do. They
would prove the greatest relief to the en
tire town, and my heart is full of grati
tude to your thoughtful people for their
early gift of lumber. I only wish they
could see the happiness they have creat-
Witb highest respect, 1 remain most
sincerely yours, Claba Barton,
l'res. Am. Nat. Red Cross.
Accompanying the letter is a newspa
per account of the "house warming" of
the new Red Cross house at Johnstown,
which is designed as a temporary abode
of the families made homeless by the
flood, and which contains thirty-six nice
ly furnished bedrooms with hall, dining
room, kitchen and laundry.
A veritable army of tramps made
onslaught on the C. R. I. & P. round
house last night in search of quarters to
sleep for the night.
Geo. Littig and Nick Blakesley, the
latter from the country, got into a fist
fight in the alley back of the Schafer
bouse this afternoon, and Officer Cary
interfered and escorted the participants
Arthur Romey, of Moliae, was locked
up by Officer Boland Tuesday night, and
yesterday Magistrate Wivill fined him $3
and costs for intoxication. He was sent
to the armory to serve it out, and be
tween last night and this morning he had
three violent epileptic fits, frightening
Officer Sexton almost out of his wits.

who had fought against each other in
every battle on the Vicksburg raid from
Grand Gulf to and including Vicksburg.
The southener remarked: "Time brings
about great changes. I didn't think, 26
years ago, when 1 was in Vicksburg din
ing on corn cake and mule meat, that I
would be sitting at a fine banquet away
up in Iowa with one of the boys that was

was glad that the war ended as it did.
The death of Mr. W. II. Ray. principal
of the high school of Hyde Park, is yery

he had very many admiring friends. He
naa often visited Rock Island as a
teacher in the county institute, and was
engaged to teach tbis year and his pres
ence was day by day looked and hoped
tor, until the institute closed, but sick
ness prevented his attendance. Last
June he delivered an address before the
High school graduating class of '89, and
it was fully reported in the Arocs at the
time. He was feeling far from well, suf
fering from overwork, and it was that
that caused his death. In his demise the
state of Illinois loses one of its most tal
ented and successful public school edu
cators. Harvent Exraralona.
