THE -ROCK ISLAND AUG US. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1889.
A COUNTY FAIR.
Tk (per F.n4. the lowrr F.mm
the Oafr are IHHlas the !
There has never hern hut one genuine
fair in thin county which could be called
a central fair. Tbls fair was Inaugarated
bout the year 1H07. The first year was
a success, the farmers were the leading
. apirita and the best in attendance and dis
play. Tbe second year the farmers, mer
chants and manufacturers became dis
gusted over tbe fact that gamblers and
faikers wi re permitted to run tbe grounds
for a small consideration. The idea that
baby racks, cane racks, wheelaof fortune
and hippodrome races wilt attract people
for a second time has been ex
ploded and the firot annual fair of
the Hock Inland county society, in
which all the people of the county
were enlintfd, went under in the
second year of its existence. The far
mers will not lie humbugged and they are
a quick to diarovrr a fraud as the average
horseman or gambler or men who enter
into a corporation for self gain. The re
sult of this mismanagement was a
colUpue of thl Hgftoeialinn and resulted in
the organization of two fairs, one at Canoe
Creek and the other at Coe. Tbe former
fair died two yeara ago after an eight
years' lease of life on account of the
cloacneaM of the two, tbe grounds of one
being but three miles from the other
Both fairs were well patronized but both
could not exist In a limited territory
ea ft rt t w
i lie oe or kock iHiami county lair was
the surviror. This association held their
last fair the first week of the month of
People who have always been friendly
to this association and the friends of the
Canoe Creek association, all unite in
saying that the labor is too great for
them to assume, and they would be will
ing to unite on a central fair, which
should be located between thetwo citiea.
Sylvan island as has hern before ful
ly stated can he rented at a nominal
figure. There would be no necessity
for a fence. Tbe stock could all be used
for buildings, race track and other im
provements. The Farmers' alliance will
bold four meetings during tbe months of
January and February, and the subject
of a county fair will be among the topics
on the programme fur discussion. While
tbe farmers are tbus discussing the mat
ter, the Citizens' Improvement associa
tion should be disciis-ing it and conclu
sions arrived at by wbK-h the fair may he
formally opened next year.
It is quite likely that the Holmes syn
dicate, as well as the various steam rail
roads, would lend substantial encour
agement to the enterptise.

Col. . T. I) wda:i, formerly editor of
Vie now defunct Peoria XiitiomU liemn
erut, and more recently postmaster of
that city, is about to enter tbe stock
raising business. The Ar.i.V says of the
colonel's new venture:
The die is cast, the jig is up, and the
fates have ordained that Col. V. T.
Iowdall shall gather up his feet and
journey even unto IJuincy, there to pitch
uis tent and settle down to the life of a
patriarch. The Qu'ncy papers state that
the colonel has bought the tine and ex
tensive landed property known as "Ros
robe)" and hitherto owned hyOen. Sin
gleton. The sum paid was f l.t.lKiO and
it is the colonel's intention to go into
stoek farming on a large and extensive
scale. Col. Dowdall ha, been an active
Peorian for twenty two years and one
whose experience has been sprinkled
thick with vicissitudes. Having been so
prominently identified with the city for
nearly a quarter of a century, his depar
ture will make Peoria seem for a time
like tbe play of "Hamlet" with the part
of "Hamlet'' left out. Thus friend after
friend departs. Who hath not lost a

standing even to the furthest walla. This
concourse, which so look her by storm,
she, in turn, took by storm, and through
the entire play held more and more assur
edly. Loud laughter and applause, both
almost inrepssnl, accompanied the de
lightful hours. Mattie Vickers is the
most charming actress in her line we have
at any time wen. The simple jollity and
naturalness of her way captures all
hearts speedily. It is life not a seeming.

The remodeled Burlis opera bouse of
Davenport will be the handsomest place
of amusement west of Chicago. The
finishing touches are now being put on
tbe improvements, and when entirely
completed it will be a theatre in which
tbe people not only of Dsvenport, but
Rock Island as well, may take just pride.
The interior arrangement of the house
Las been entirely replaced, new boxes
put in. tbe stage enlarged and tbe walls
and woodwork artistically repainted and
ornamented, an expense of 15.0(H) hav
ing been involved in the renovation. The
new theatre will be opened under the
management of A. C. Man A Co.. on
Sept. 23d, which will mark the advent of
the first of a series of the most popular
attractions on tbe road.

Though the Jolly Pathfinders will make
their initial visit here next week, they are
bound to be favorites and thousands of
people will embrace the opportunity of
seeing the most noted musical comedy
company on the road. They open Mon
day night in "Fun by Express," and the
best seat in the bouse will cost you only
30 cents. The Dubuque Time says:
"The opera house was filled last even
ing to witness the initial performance of
Kentfrow's Jolly Pathfinders. All that
was promised upon the bills was faith
fully performed and tbe audience was
kept in tbe best of spirits from the rise to
the fall of the curtain. Miss Delia Jack
son scored a hit as a charming and tal
ented vocalist. The company all in all is
a good one, and their fun will drive away
the worst rase of indigestion and blues.
The silver cornet band and operatic or
chestra is an excellent combination and
adds much to the success of the Path
finders." A a F.yeaere and aianre.
That adhesive clay sidewalk on the
east side of Seventeenth street between
Third and Fourth avenues, is still the
bane of pedestrians who are compelled to
travel that street. One gentleman re
ported finding three tubliers in the mire
after a heavy rain. This certain locality
is probably the most flagrant violation of
the sidewalk ordinance in the city, and it
is strange that tbe authorities do not
make the owner put down a walk of some
kind. People are not partial to walking
through a clay bank that almost pulls tue
soles off their shoes.

To tamper with sym itoms indicative
of growing kidney disor ler; to neglect for
a brief time needful sti mutation of the
renal organs when their inactivity points,
as it always and unmistakably does, to
their eventual permsnett disease, is cer
tainly very risky indeed This is, how
ever, a risk that many ) tenons percepti
bly drifting into Bright't disease, diabetes,
catarrh of the bladder. &c, constantly
incur. So those who Mad, reflect and
heed the lessons of recorded experience,
the advisability of tsing Hosteller's
Stomach Bitters a diure ic, need scarcely
more than a suggestion. No fact is more
generally admitted by t ie medical pro
fession and tbe public than its efficacy
for the prevention of serious renal dis
ease. The un medicated excitants of com
merce, no matter bow p ire, bear in mind,
react prejudicially upon the kidneys when
inactive. Tbe Bitters i ubdues malaria,
