A VALUABLE INDUSTRY.

An Industry that may almost be called
Rock Itlaad'i has been started this season,
the full importance of which is perhaps
not fully realized as yet as it baa been run
ning but a few days. It is the new Milan
canning factory, and while descriptions
of it bare from time to time appeared in
the Arous. it bad to get into fair running:
operation before the public could acquire
an idea of what might be expected of it.
An Aroch representative who visited
Milan yesterday, is obliged to confess
great surprise at what be saw, when
shown through tbe works by Manager I.
V. McCagg. It in a veritable scene of
industry and enterprise.
Tbe institution has been running only
a little over a week, and there
are forty bands already employed.
and the number will be increased
to seventvfive as soon as they can be
bad, and to one hundred before the st-a
son ends. Inspection of the machinery
is in itself an interesting study to one
who enjoys mechanical novelty and gen
lus. It is of tbe latest improved and
labor-saving inventions, and such as has
proved the most successful in putting up
goods, including a Springfield gas ma
chine of the most modern make, and the
latest devices for capping, steaming an J
corn cutting, and the only successful
process kettle. For instance, the corn
passes from the shed to the process ket
tie without being touched by band, going
through all the various stages of prepar
ation by machinery. Tomatoes pass
through a dry steam eihauat, and no
water is permitted to touch them after
the scalding operation which is neces
sary to remove the skin, and at the same
time take away everything but tbe sweet
natural fUvor. The tomato cans are
then filled by giils by hand, and
as long as the can will bold
There is, as a consequence, no water in
the can, and the iucious vegetable is
canned sololv in its own juice.
Corn is put up in its young tender
state and canned strictly in its own milk.
tbns retaining all its sweetness and fine
flavor. Everything is cooked In the can
after tbe seal, leaving it only necessary
for tbe consumer to beat and season to
taste. Thus far only corn and tomatoes
have been canned, but tbe works are
equipped to put up pea, baked beans,
pumpkins and asparagus and other veg
etablea, and these branches will be em
barked in in due time. The present
capacity of tbe works is twenty-five to
thirty-five thousand cans of corn daily,
and five to fifteen thousand cans of toma
toes, entailing a consumption of twenty
five to forty tons of corn a day and rive
hundred bushels of tomatoes.
The brands of canned goods so far
manufactured are "Black Hawk Sugar
Corn" and the "Great Rock Island" and
"Pride of Milan" brands of tomatoes.
Manager McCagg opened a can each of
the corn and tomatoes yesterday and
permitted the reporter to judge for
himself as to .their merit. Tbe
taste was delicious and the corn
especially had been so carefully and
thoroughly scraped and pulped that a
person without teeth could have enjoyed
it as well as tbe tomatoes. On the label
of the can used for the "Black Ilawk"
brand of corn is this fitting inscription,
"the lands of Rock Island county were
selected by tbe great Indian chief, Black
Ilawk, as the best in the northwest for
growing corn. This sugar corn was
grown n these lands, and Is put up in
its own milk retaining all its sweetness
and fine flavor." "There is a great deal
in the quality of the grain, vegetable
or Iruit to tie canned" said Mr
mccagg, "ana in this connection
I may explain that this is one of the rea
sons why we located here. It is be
cause of the grain and vegetables in their
natural state. The soil seems to be pro
ductive of a superior quality. Our label
on the can explains our opinion of
the corn. The tomatoes on tbe bluffi
in and about Rock Island, Moline and
Milan are the best in this country. They
are the biggest, best, and composed of
the most sound amv solid meat.
These are the reasons we sold out in Da
venport and located here. We want to
be near the best product."
The works, of course, do a strictly job
bing business, selling no less quantity
than car-load lota, and already have re
ceived great demands for the exclusive
handling of their goods from firms in
Chicago and elsewhere in tbe northwest.
Mr. A. C. Dart, who ought to be a pret
ty good jadge of canned goods, stales
that he never saw such tomatoes, and
never bad better corn in bis house than
the Milan Canning company puts up.
Tbe officers of the company are I. V.
McCagg, president and manager; C. II.
Dibbern, vice president; J. F. Mathews
secretary and treasurer. C. II. Plummer,
who has always been in a canning facto
ry and nnderstands tbe business as thor
oughly as a man can, is professor. The
works are suppled with water from two
wells and pipes rnnning to 'the main
channel of Rock river, from which water
is pumped for cooking and for steam
which is used in charging tha cans with
salt brine. Hose are distributed at con'
venient distance throughout the nicely ar
ranged building and the floors are thor
oughly washed and scrubbed every night,
and every morning finds them as bright
and clean as a newly scoured tin pan.
brought a multitude of Ills upon human

Sozodont is a well-spring of joy in tbe
family. It refreshes the invalid by
cleansing his mouth and flu the belle for
. ' Boats.
At Black Ilawk watch tower landing

boats, three sail boats and one barge.
A Brake Raft.
The rafter. Silas Wright, experienced
a misfortune lata yesterday afternoon as
it was coming over the rapids with a raft
of eight strings of lumber. One end of
ber raft struck on the rocks, and tbe re
salt was that the raft was considerably
broken op. About 600 logs got loose and
floated off toward either side of tbe main
channel of the river. The little steamer
continued on down the stream with the
remainder of its raft and the stray logs
floated on behind. By tbe time the
steamer bad reached Credit island below
tbe city, a portion of the loose logs had
floated through the bridge. They were
scattered in all directions, from one
shore to the other, and some were a half
mile in advance of the others. The raf
ter Wheeler and a number of log men
from this side of the river, caught most of
the logs after two or three hours' work,
but quite a number got away. They
will undoubtedly be captured by fisher
men farther down the river.
Some of our progressive-minded citi
zens whose influence has counted in
bringing about the street and park im
provvments Rock Island is having, have
suggested to the mayor the propriety of
appointing park commissioners for the
two squares Union and Franklin such
as larger cities have. The mayor has the
authority to create such offices, the in
cumbents to be like library directors
unsalaried. The idea is a capital one, if
the mayor exercises proper judgment in
getting men of taste and judgment to fill
tbe offices. Mr. Richard Crampton has
been suggested as a fit roan for Union
rquare, and no better 'selection could be
made, and doubtless as good a man could
le found to look after Franklin square.
In this manner tbe beauty of these squares
can be maintained, when once estab
lished. We have enough parks and
should appreciate and take pride in what

A Washington dispatch says: The
poetoffice department is going to intro
duce some novelties in the line of postal
cards. Tbe new issue, soon to be made,
will contain three styles. One is similar
in size and style to the postal card now
in use. It will perhaps be finer engraved
and on a little better quality of paper. A
new style, of large size and neat but sub
stantial appearance, is intended for tbe
use of business men and merchants. It
will afford space for printing or writing
considerable matter. The gem, however,
is a delicate little card for ladies' corres
pondence. It is to be a tinted affair,
probably in pink shades, and the style
and quality of the card are calculated to
be of such character as to commend it to
persons of ssthelic tastes. It may be
used for invitations and little notes tbat
are not necessarily of a confidential na

says of an appearance by her at a concert
held at Freeport Wednesday evening for
the benefit of tbe Y. M. C. A.' building
Miss Margaret Fry sang an exquisite

satisfied that Miss Fry has a voice where

sweet and harmonious whole.

any persons arc under the impression that Ivory Soap is ex
pensive, and intended for the use of the wealthy only. The
fact is, the price is lower than for ordinary soaps, quality con
sidered, for in the "Ivory" no " cheapencrs " of " makeweights "
are used, so the buyer gets all "true soap" for her money. Its
harmlessncss, durability and efficiency admit of its being used for
all purposes wh equal satisfaction and economy in the families
of the rich or poor.
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the 'Ivory'
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities
of the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.
