Tbe Engle Sanitary 4 Cremation Co..
has decided to take down and remove the
crematory erected so near tbe western
border of the city as to be very obnoxious
to tbe residents of tbe eastern part of
Rock Island. Tie decision on tbe part
of tbe company to remove the crematory
was the result, says the Republican, of a
conference between tbe mayor and Mr
Smith, the company's rep.esentative, the
first of the week, and at the conclusion
of tbe twenty-four hours test; but before
finally determining the matter Mr. Smith
desired to consult some of the other mem
bers of the company. This was done,
and Mayor Wessel received official notifi
cation to that effect yesterday, and Mr.
Thompson, who had remained In Moline
as a representative of tbe company, has
already commenced upon tbe work of re
moval. The result of the official test
was not satisfactory to tbe members of
tbe council tbe furnaces failing to come
up tu tbe requirements of the contract.
This is perhaps due largely to the pecu
liar requirements of Molioein this matter,
more than to actual defects in the furnaces
themselves. Thus the test made waa
an unusually severe one. Tbe crema
tory may be able to satisfy the de
mands made upon it in most cities of
the size of Moline. In many places
there is a smaller quantity of potato
peelings, rotten apples and things of
that class containing a large percent
age of water, and more refuse from meat
markets and other things easily burned In
tbe garbage, than is the case there. If
there bad been more refuse hay, straw,
paper, etc., from stores, the furnace
would undoubtedly easily burn thirty
yards In twenty-four hours as called for
by tbe contract. The question that bss
been troubling the city council of Moline
for several years is "How to dispose of
kitchen garbage, slops, etc.?" and it was
for the purpose of destroying this that
the purchase of tbe crematory was pro
Mr. Smith and the other gentlemen of
the company have found the needs and
requirement of Moline so entirely differ
ent from those of other cities that they
were forced to admit that the furnaces
erected there were incapable of doing the
work. Larger furnaces might perhaps
accomplish the desired result, but if tbe
company was held to put them in It
would probably lose money on tbe iob
and hence when it was proposed to can
cel tbe contract and give it permission to
remove the crematory the members de
cided to avail themselves of the opportu
At the Theatre.
Frankie Jones, tbe boy actor, opened
a three nights' engagement at Harper's,
theatre last evening in a strong drama
especially adapted to his talents and en
titled, -Disowned." Tbe gifted young
man. whose age does not appear to be
over fifteen, is surrounded by an excel
lent company, and what adds much to tbe
attraction ia the company's own scenery.
A large and highly pleased audience was
present. Tonight "Carl, the Outcast,"
a thrilling production, is to be given
with special scenery.
Tomorrow afternoon "The Sea Waif."
one of tbe company's strongest bills, will
be presented for matinee. It is in this
production that the great tank scene is
shown, with the surging sea of real wa
ter. It will be a sight that will delight
the little folks, while Master Frankie
Jones will introduce some new songs.and
Mr. Gardner will give some specialties.
The matinee prices will be ten and twenty
cents to all parts of tbe house.

indeed, a still more vivid impression on
the listener than it wrought on the even
ing previous. Tbe new soprano's voice
ia of uncommon beauty and power; the
medium is full and even, and the upper
tones, which soar into tbe ether of altis
slomo, possess the crystalline clearness
that Mme. Center's were once upon a

ready recorded, tbe prima dona's execu

cy and lflnm.nt. Tha audianoa ymmtmw
day waa quick to discern tbe exceptional
nature of Signorina De Vere's gifts and
attainments, and, as on tbe night of her
debut, her pieces were interrupted, with
more rapture than discretion, by bravos
and applause. The songstress' principal
number waa Benedict's variations, 'Le
Carnival de Yenise," and tbe facile man
ner in which she overcame its difficulties
recalled tbe art of the most sparkling
light songstresses of the pre-Wagner
On next Monday evening the wonder
fully successful farce comedy, with tbe
queer Utle of -He, She, Him and Her,"
will be presented. The story follows the
adventurea of a waif who ultimately
comes into a fortune, after a series of
funny ups and downs. Toma Hanlon, a
bright little actress, impersonates the
waif Tootsie, and sings in a captivating
mezzo-soprano voice at frequent inter
vals. Mr. Adams is tbe Toby of the
piece a dull-looking country boy, with
a keen wit quite out of keeping with his
awkward appearance. He does some of
his old-time specialties, like tbe dancing
rope turn, with acrobotic embellishments,
and be bears bis share of the singing with
fortitude and discretion.
On Tuesday evening the first presenta
tion will be made in Rock Island of John
Fay Palmer's spectacular production,
"Tbe Last Days of Pompeii." Tbe play,
as tbe title indicates, is one of undoubted
merit, and calls for a high grade of act
ing and elocutionary power, and plenty
of it. Mr. Palmer, the young dramatist
and actor, assumes thepart of "Arbedea"
with dignity and strength, reading his
lines with good elocutionary effect.

A Paihlle Bialaauaer.
What the Burlington Uavtktye says of
the 'growing nuisance' is partially ap
plicable here. It la in this line:
There is in this city a class of boys and
yuuov men wno persistently naunt tne
entrance to the oner a linn on the nnatof-
flee and the principal churches, where
tuey oiock tne sidewalks and make tbe
surrounding atmosphere hideous with
filthy slang. One of their favorite past
times while thus congregated is to annoy
ladles who happen to be without escorts,
and to jostle everybody who in their pro
gress to places of public resort interfere
with the unlimited freedom of tba inso
lent hoodlums. Tobacco imrA ia fiulw
distributed by expectoration over the
wans, ana norse play is a prominent fea
ture of each occasion which call the
mob together. Why la this sort of thing

as me young men who engage In tbem
are a disgrace to themselves snd their
families. The nolle will earn the oratt.
tude of the church people and theatre
goers by putting an effectual stop to the
nuisance before it grows older. It is too
old now, and growing ranker right along.
Rock Island is, as intimated above.
troubled with tbe same species of public
annoyance, but not to such an extent
perhaps as in Burlington, yet it does exs
1st to a Very large degree, and there ia an
other class of nuisances that might be
added, towit: tbe small boy who hangs
on the back platform of street cars and
not only aggravates the driver, but dis
turbs the patrons of the road.

Everv one who haa a tsinnh if th. ar
tistic sense, or who loyes the beautiful,
enjoys and appreciates the gorgeousnei s
of the landscape in this section when
summer has fled, and autumn works the
wonderful and beautiful changes in the
apparel of forests and groves . There are
scientific reasons for transformation from
the green, which becomes somewhat stale,
to the multi-colored appearance. There
are reasons for all the heautifnt rii-h rH
and golden splendor, which bedecks the
trees in tne timeot a dying season. Jack
Frost is commonly ationoaed to ho th ar.
list who does such delicate and pretty
work, but in fact be is not, and the poets
have sung in vain and untruthfully.
Science has demonstrated that the fact is
otherwise. The commonplace and unro-
mantic explanation ot tbe matter is tbat :n
the fall the saD of the trepa r.. t,
flow, the natural growth is arrested, and
"oxidation of the tissues" occurs. The
green matter In the leaf is composed of
two colors red and blue. These, after
'oxidation " take nn rlifTrant nlnr. ac
