The Union in its clearly obstinate and
entirely unreasonable opposition to tbe
gates at tbe railroad crossings, not only
at Eighteenth, bat now at Twenty-fourth
also, holds that as there is a good
prospect of the viaduct being built with
in the next year, there Is no necessity for
tbe gates. This seems to be the extent
of the final exertion on the part of the
morning organ in its opposition to a
project clearly in tbe interest of public
safety. Its opposition to the gates is not
to be so greatly wondered at. It was to
be expected. Tbe aldermen, as has be
fore been frequently stated, expected to
meet it, and tbey would expect to meet
it the very instant tbey made a move in
favor of tbe viaduct. It is an opposi
tion wholly without foundation, and
prompted solely by a spirit of "bucking''
characteristic of its course in all matters
of this kind.
But to its flimsy excuse for not order
ing tbe gates. There is no absolute cer
tainty that tbe viaduct will be
be built next season, though a most stren
uous effort will be mide to secure it, and
thanks wilt be returned to the merciful
powers if it is secured. But even in the
face of the determined attempt to have
the viaduct built the coming season, tbe
gates should nevertheless be erected as a
means of safety meanwhile.and the Union
whose hostility was at first confined to
those at Eighteenth street and has since
been transferred to tbe Twenty-fourth
street gates too, cannot awsy the alder
men in their plain duty. If there is any
opposition beyond that herein alluded to,
it does n ot come from the railroads, as
both the C R. I. & P. and C, B. & Q.
have confessed tbe darger, especially at
Twenty fourth street, and are willing to
put in the gates as soon as tbe council
While last night's terrible fatality did
not occur at either Eighteenth or Twenty
fourth street, it would have been pre
vented by gates at Seventeenth street,
and although this is pot a street so fre
quently crossed as the other two, and
protections are not so absolutely neces
sary, yet such a catastrophe is all the
more apt to happen at either of the
streets. Give us the gates and insure
safely for the present, and during the
winter let us make a united effort for the

It cannot be said that tbe Davenport
dude is any more absent-minded than
those of his class in any other city, yet
there is a representative of tbia worthless
attachment to society in that city, who
has displayed it to a rather marked de
gree according to the Tribune, which says:
A young gentleman of this city, well
known for his "dudish" manners created
considerable merriment in a street car
some lime ago. He entered the car and
sat down with a self complacent smile
and looked around with an air which said,
"am I not just too elegant for anything;"
suddenly some of the young ladies in the
car commenced laughing immoderately
and for some time no one could see what
so amused tbem. Presently one of them
pointed to tbe elegant young man and
then all could see tbe fun. He bad put
bis mustache up in tin foil the night be
fore to give it the proper curl and had
forgotten to remove these evidences of
bin attempts to beautify hlmaelf. Tba
above is a true story and is vouched for
by an eye witness.

A private letter from Clara Barton,

iterates tbe thanks of the American Na

ple there for the prompt generosity of
Davenport people . She ssys tbe lumber
consigned from this place was the first

military authorities and the balance went
into tbe headquarters of the society
from which the distribution of goods has
been going on ever since the flood the
remainder entered into tbe construction
of buildings for the shelter of unfortu
nates from whom all was swept away.
Tbe immediate effects of tbe flood are
still fearfully apparent, and much relief
work must be done, but added to this
distress is tbe fearful epidemic of ty

I use from 300 to 500 bunhels of shelled
corn on tuy farm every year, and I re
gard the fodder as worth nearly ax much
as the corn. As soon as t he ears are well
glazed the corn is cut close to the ground,
put on a dump cart and hauled to a lot
near the barn and shocked. I use what
is called a corn horse for shocking a
pole from the woods, somo sixteen feet
long, and through the butt bore two
holes and insert legs, raising this end
about four feet from the ground. Then
bore a hole horizontally three or four
feet from this end large enough to insert
an old hoe or rake handle, and it is ready
for use. Set the corn in the four corners
made by the pole and this stick and
build on the desired size.
Tie the top, pull out the stick and
draw the corn horse out far enough to
commence another shock. One man will
act up corn rapidly in this way. I usu
ally make three shocks from two cart
loads and have no difficulty in curing.
As soon as the corn is cured sufficiently
it is shucked out, leaving shucks on
stalk and the stalks are stacked and left
to be cut by power as wanted during the
winter. I use a cutter with masticator,
and my cows are fed twice a day with
this cut feed and are always in prime
condition. I usually feed hay at noon
and give my milch cows four quarts of
wheat bran and four quarts corn meal
per day additional. The waste of the
cornstalks makes excellent litter for
stock and absorbs urine like a sponge.

Tbe delightful home of Mr. and Mrs.
W. B. Ferguson, Seventh avenue and
Twenty-first street, was last evening the
scene of a brilliant gathering and a most
elaborate social event. Though the fact
was known to but few of tbe 170 invited
guests present, it was an occasion of pari
ticular joy as well as of,' generous hospi
tality to the accomplished host and hos
tess, witnessing as it did the fifteenth
anniversary of their wedding. But this
occasion had been so cleverly concealed
until the guests arrived, that but few
knew it and thr j were lavish in their re
membrances ot the crystal event.
The mansion was decorated with a
profusion of flowers and foilage that was
In keeping with the admirable ste dis
played in their arrangement, while the
illumination throughout was beautiful.
Bleuei's orchestra furnished inspiring
music. Tbe menu was elaborate, and
comprised many courses; and by way of
favors a dainty little box, one for each
guest, containing a piece of the wedding
cake ef fifteen years sgo, and which had
been hermetically packed and preserved
until Ibis time by Mrs. Ferguson. Each
guest also received a mica badge bearing
the dates "18741888."
Mrs. Ferguson appeared in tbe cos
tume complete of her bridal day, and Mr.
Ferguson did 'not appear a whit less
proud than he must have been fifteen
years ago. The evening was one long to
be remembered by all present.

the Dtipatch says:
Tbe Frankie Jones company played to
a fair audience at the Wagner last even
ing. Frankie Jones himself is all that
is claimed for him; his singing is a
fetching feature, and bis support is far
above tbe average. Tbe company is de
serving of large patronage. Mr. Ed. A.
Gardner was a splendid Cereal Cobb, of
the granger type; Q R. Robinson played
the role of the Italian banana dealer and
burglar in good shape; Walter Lawrence
made a tip-top villain as Harry Lawrence,
and tbe ladies of the company sustained
their parts admirably. Not tbe least at
traction in tbe company is Little Lovell,
who carries out baby parts very sweetly.
The special scenery is most appropriate
and fine, and the sewer and Are scenes,
and the vault explosion were especially
Signor Campanini received a generous,
wbole-soulcd welcome so well suited to
his own naturd and character. He was
called back several times to the stage,
and the audience literally forced bim to
an encore. As an artist Signor Campan
ini still holds his own. Tbat which he
enunciates in song is not mere sound,
pleasing and grateful, and mechanically
correct it is music tbat penetrates to tbe
soul. But to this consuranale act be
brings the aid of abundant material and
dramatic feeling. Nor is the latter tbat
which is affected by tbe mannerisms of
gesticulation; it is in the voice and man
himself. Tbat lovely falsetto! How
faultlessly and bow smoothly it is taken!
One would hardly notice the change from
a chest tone. And when color and dra
matic passion are necessary to enhance
the effect, tbe artist still appears in bis
prestine strength and glory, as in days
when no dramatic tenor dared to dispute
his supremacy. Cincinnati Commercial
