THE -nOCKMSIiAND AHGUS, SATUIIDAY, AUGUST 3, 1889.
THE SURVEY OF THE RIVER.
WkllHuBrn ! the MlMlg.
Ippl the FmI Mf by the Can.
The permanent survey of the Missis
sippl river is being pushed by Capt. C. F.
Powell of the Mississippi river commis
sion, and all the work to be done in that
direction this season is completed . Capt.
Powell's men will be ordered to recom
mence at once the survey where they left
off a few months ago, at Chester, 111.
This survey was ordered by congress
about 13 years ago, and as designated,
was to extend from the head of the
passes to the headwaters of the river. It
has been completed from the passes to
Chester, and it is expected that the field
party that will begin work soon will
reach the mouth of the Missouri river be
fore the rivers close.
By this survey the character of the
banks and the bottom of the stream are
noted, and observations are taken on the
amount of sediment and discharge at dif
ferent places. The snrvcy is extended to
the bluff on either side of the river if
they are within a mile and a half of the
banks. It was begun in 1S78 by Gen.
Comstock. who supervised it for two
years. The Mississippi river commission
whs then organized and took charge of
the work. They now have two sets of
maps of the survey as fnr as it is corns
pleted. One shows the river at its uuial
height and the other the alluvial section
of the basin. The final lithograph map
of the survey will be printed in a abort
This survey, when completed, will give
the government a comprehensive knowl
edge of the Mississippi river and its
basin. It will be invaluable in enabling
the commission to improve the river sys
tematically and at the lenst possible cost.
All local surveys that are made necessary
in the future by a change in the course of
the river, or the lodging of sediment at
. any point will be based on this survey.
The knowledge obtained by it is also
valuable to cities along the river and rail

The Fulton Journal says the several
meetings of the board of directors of the
Modern Woodmen of America held last
week at that place and in Elgin have re,
suited in reconciling the differences be
tween Head Consul Root and Head
Physician McKinnio, and also in restor
ing harmony on the board. It says fur
There was a conflict of opinion between
the bead officers of the order as to the
duties and powers of those two offi
cials, and we are pleased to state that
everything has been happily adjusted
ana cordial relations restored all aronnd.
mioriunaieiy tue controversy occa
sioned a great deal or gossip among
those outside the order whose curiosity
has been excited and all kinds of reports
were in circulation, many ot them not
having the slightest foundation.- The
order has prospered wonderfully under
tbe management of its officials, and to
day the Modern Woodman stands among
tbe nrst of the cooperative life insurance
associations of this country, although it
is one of the youngest. Its affairs has
always been managed wisely, and no
order bag a better established record for
promptness in tbe payment of death
benefits. With a membership of nearly
30.1A1O, located in the healthy northwest,
today tbe order stands representing $70,
COO.OOO of life Insurance.

All who attended the Robinson show,
which exhibited on the river one week
ago, will remember James Jay Jewett,
"Jumbo," tbe fat man who was the big
gest attraction of tbe show in more re
spects than one. Sunday morning, last
be died in a hospital at St. Louis, from
the effects of a fall which be received
several weeks apo. "Jumbo's" maximum
welgbt u 749 pounds, this being the
figure at which be tipped the beam when
frequently weighed by the audience. His
weight was decreased one hundred pounds
by his illness. Jewett was horn and
raised in Northwood, Worth county,
Iowa, ne was in his twenty-sixth year.
He had a slight knowledge of music and
used good English in speaking. He left
the show here last Saturday night, going
to St. Louis for treatment and died there
the following morning.

Tbe business men of Davenport are
complaining seriously of dull times. It
is because so many ot their citizens are
buying their goods in Rock Island this
year, and as soon as the cars get to run
ning over the bridges more of them will
see and adopt the benefits of doing like
wise. Morning Union.
Yet what a fight the Union did make to
deny the merchants of Rock Island these
advantages, and bow it did misrepresent
them before tbe world as looking ahead
to the bndge road as bringing their doom
with its consummation! Time reveats the
iruin ot all tilings, and just so sure
will it reveal the wisdom and honesty of
tbe Ahous' course a little over a year ago

TO BEGIN PAVING.
The Klrat Oaitlciant of Brtrlt Ex
peete latly----Mra Advertised
Atkinson & Oloff, the contractors for J
the paving of Second avenue, are in daily
expectation of the first consignment of
brick for the paving of Second avenue.
Several car loads from Galesburg for the
general work, and also from Bardolph
for the street car company's exclusive use,
have already been shipped and will doubt
less be here by the first of the week.
Atkinson & OlofI are in entire readiness
to begin work Monday morning and exs
pect to do so.- With that end in view
they have advertised for fifty men to re
port at the corner of Twentieth street
and Second avenue at 7 o'clock
Monday morning. Wra. Nevins, late of
Omaha, where he has had a great deal of
experience in paving, has been engaged
by Mr. Atkinson to take general charge
of the work, and he proposes to push it
as rapidly as possible, expecting, he says,
to get it done within sixty days.
The council should have taken some
action before this in relation to the loca
tion of the telegraph poles along Second
avenue in the district to he paved. They
should ordered placed inside the curb
ing, as is the case in all paved cities. As
it is now, some are inside and some out,
(here being no system or regularity dis
played. The council should take action
on the matter at its meeting next Monday
The paving enterprise is already be
ginning to spread. Up on Nineteenth
and Twentieth streets they are talking
about widening their walks, and putting
in boulevards so as to lessen the space to
be paved and enable the improvement to
he made more economically. But those
thorough I ares will ne paved next sum
mer, if not this fall, and the same spirit
that prompts it is likely to spread all
over the citv.
A MUSCATINE ML'RDKK.
A r ive-Year Old Brat a t'ampaalaa
as Thai he Isle.
Muscatine has a youthful murder. The
On Saturday, while the five year old
son of Al. Baker was playing with tbe
three-year-old son of Dave llerwig. a
difficulty arose about the shutting of a
gale and the Baker child became angered
pulling tbe younger child into a ditch
and pounded or struck him so severely as
to make him insensible. Tbe little ller
wig boy was carried into his borne, and
last evening passed away.
The funeral of the dead child was held
at 2 o'clock yesterday, and was a most
affecting occasion. This sad affair raises
an interesting question for psychologists
and mental philosophers to solve, if they
can, says tbe Davenport Democrat Git
utte. Here is an instance in which a five-year-old
child slays a playmate in a fit of
If a grown man were to do such a
thing he would be accounted guilty of
wilful murder, in the fullest sense of tbe
term. No one will think of holding a 5
year old baby to the same account bow
ever. At the same time one of the penal
institutions of this country contains a boy
only 11 years of age who is under a long
sentence, if not a sentence for life, on the
charge of murder. Only six years inter
vene between the ages of five and eleven.
W'bo shall say when this child at Musca
tine would have crossed the line that
would have made him a murderer? If be
be held Innocent of any such intent and
undeserving of punishment who shall
maintain that the 11-year old boy is de
serving of the punishment of a murderer?
Or, if the latter be deemed guilty, as he
has been adjudged, who shall say that
this 5 year old baby does not have some
share of guilt? It's a perplexity .
Hydrophobia among horses, cattle and
swine is Incoming a serious matter in
this vicinity. On the farm of Reuben
Uollister, in Coe township, five head of
cattle went mad recently, and four out of
a lot of five that be bad Bold a abort time
previously died at about the same time,
On the farm of Samuel Bruner a horse
died from the same cause; but before it
died it bit another horse. Another far
mer near Cordova lost a horse in tbe
same way. Mad dogs are of frequent
occurrence. Keports come from v bite
side county of loss of stock by this ter
rible malady, and there is indeed reason
for serious alarm throughout this and

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 ce -tainly useful, but many
persons select the worst, fly from one to
the other, and employ them when there
is no occasion, c r their utility has ceased.
To establish on permanent basis a.reg
alar condition o '. the bowels, the finest
alterative is Hos tetter's Stomach Bitters.
It is botanic in rigin, and a safe succe
daneum for thofe objectionable drags,
calomel and bluo pill; it does not gripe
or drench the be wels like the ordinary
evacuents, and it not only reforms irreg
ulsrity pf the habit of body, but remedies
tbe disorder and inactivity or the liver
and stomach, which usually accompany
that condition. Rheumatism, kidney
trouble, malaria complaint and nervous
ness are removed by the Bitters.

I have been a great sufferer from hay

For toilet use and barbering.
The slightest touches will suffice
To make a foamy lather rise.

That tells what Ivory Soap will do."

is the Gr&t Santa Claus
Tis good for every purpose,
For which a soap is needed
And joy will bring to
Who has wise counsel
And spent a nickel, just t0
What wonders it will do
To lighten labor, save expense
And make tilings bright and new.
