At tonight's meeting the com cil will as
heretofore stated be expected to either
give Its sanction or disapproval of the
petition to extend the Secon 1 avenue
pavement further west. The muLicipal
body baa by a rising vote approved what
has tbua far been done in tin way of
paving, and in so doing it but voices the
sentiment of the entire city. T might it
will be called upon to act in consistency
with Its action of Friday nisb - Oppo
sition to the project for x'endinK
the Second avenue pavement may
be expected. All public improve
ments meet with opposition. In
Peoria the first paving was ordered
when the spirit of the property holders
affected was slrongly against It. The
prevailing expression was doa't pave.
The majority of the front feet were rep
resented on the side of the opponents
of the enterprise, but the ooutcil exer
cised the same right that it has here to
order it, no matter what the islin of
the property holders, and the roiyor and
the men wbo composed that council are
now the most popular cilizena in Peoria.
The honest board of municipa control
has made many friends through the fear

It is believed the majority of tront feet
facing the contemplated Second avenue
improvement favor it, but whethe - they do

cloiely watched in this particu'ar and if

spirited citizens, the paving opeiations in
Rock Island may be expected to cease

A cow which was being taken to Div
enport by Chris Einfeldt, of tbi 4 city, to
be sold to a butcher, showed not only for
the time being an unconquersb e deter
mination not to betaken into Iiwa, but
also remarkable endurance as a iwimmer.
Just as the boat wss Imding on the Iowa
aide and after the bar which serves as a
gate on the boat bad been remi ved, the
cow suddenly leaped into the water, dis
appeared from sight for an int tact and
then the nose and horns appear d above
the surface of the water, bu it was
enough to detect the direction from
whence came the atmonphere of freedom
and the plucky bovine bended ils efforts
in that direction. Several mec jumped
into a skiff and attempted to stop the
cow, but failed, and the animal proved a
fast swimmer and covered the width of
the river three quarters of a mile in
almost as quick time as it takes to write
this. The animal landed near the R. I.

living. It is too sensible to die for food.

A FAMOUS FAMILY.
That ta Which Bra. tea. Ralxht Be

Mrs. Geo. 8. Knight and her ail
American company arrived at tbe Harper
yesterday morning, and will remain here
until Friday morning, the company play,
ing tonight In Moline, tomorrow night at
Harper's theatre andThursday and Friday
nights at Burtisln Davenport. The com
pany is under the management of Frank
W. Psul, who has been at the head of
aome of the best combinations that have
ever travelled.and he has been a frequent
visitor in Rock Island, but his star has
not been here for a great many years.
''It must be fifteen to seventeen years
since Mrs. Knight last visited Rock
Inland." aaid Mr. Paul while conversing
with a reporter at the Harper this morn
ing. "The last time she was in Rock
Island, if my memory serves me rightly,
was about tbe time oftbe opening of this
houce. She was then one of the Worrell
sisters and their parents were traveling
with them and it was in this very hotel
that tbe family planned what proved one
of the most gigsntic comedy entertain
ments ever conceived in this country.
Tbe company was here all that summer
and here its plans were matured, and the
enterprise one involving was an ex
penditure of $30,000, but it proved a pay
ing investment, for the family begun tbe
series of triumphs that made it famous.
The members revelled in wealth and con
tinued to do so until they began to sepa
rate. The father was a genius tbe cele
brated "Billy Worrell," tbe circus clown,
and the daughters Sophia, Jennie and
Irene, as tbey have been known every
where as the Worrell Sisters were each
possessed of the highest versatile comedy
"What has become of the others?'
I'll tell you. Jennie married an English
lord and is living in wealth and retire
ment from public life in a country home
near London. Irene became Mrs. Holten,
but retained her family name and is still
in tbe profession. I think she was in
Rock Island this fall with the Fenner &
Crane company. She has a rifted
augbter, Jennie Eddie, who is with our
company. Snpbia is Mrs. Knight and
she is seeing the best days of her life
ow. She dances better and sings sweeter
'How is Mr. Knight's health?' did
you ask. 1 am pleased to say that be is
recovering from his recent illness rapidly.
He has been completely broke down
nder the mental strain and nervous
xcilement to which he has for years been
subjected. But last week we received a
letter from Dr. Urrisonof Philadelphia,
dvising us of bis improvement in health.
nd already bave we commenced prep
arations for the joint starring tour of
Mr. and Mis. Knight next season. In
the meantime Mrs. Knight will continue
in her repertoire of farcial comedy, and
with ber American company she is meet-
ng with success more pronounced than
Volks is with her English support."

The representative man dreails cold vict
uals. He (treads picked up dinners. Ha groans
at the thought of yesterday's cabbage and
corned beef, served up for today V entertain
ment Hs sees no reason why the women
folks should not be able to gut up freshly
cooked diunera every day; he cannot under
stand how it is that wanning day must inev
itably bring to the dinner table a miscellan
eous collection of odds and ends, which he is
xpected to eat in silence and gratitude.
He feels wronged. He feels that it was a
mistake that he was born. He wishes he had
tbe wealth of a Rothschild, so that he could
board at tbe Fifth Avenue hotel, and never
be obliged to eat picked up dinners.
Perhaps he grumbles. Uood men often do
nnder sucb circumstances. It relieves their
feelings, and their wives expert it and are
not disappoint. t
A woman, on the contrary, has a sort of
lurking fondness for cold victuals. She likes
to warm things over, and rehash them, and
dram them np anew, and she takes pride in
If she succeeds In making something out of
nothing she is happy. And when she has
stewed the roast turkey np into a soup, and
baked the fricasseed chickens into a pie, and
made the roast leef into a ragout, she feels
like the embodiment of economy, and she be
lieves that nothing short of a new silk dress
would be sufficient recompense for her skill
Cold victuals are sure to bring company to
dinner. When there is nothing but yester
day's dinner for today, look out for hungry
visitors. Did you ever notice that tha less
you have cooked the more likely you are to
bave somebody come for whom you cars,
and who ia blessed with a good appetite!
Wben such a thing happens, bear it with
equanimity. Life is not all eating. There is
something else besides. Dont make apologies
lor tha cold pudding. Dout fret if the bread
Is stale. People have eaten cold pudding and
stale bread and survived it There are many
well authenticated cases on record where
men have eaten picked up, washing day din
ners once a week for years, and lived to be
reckoned as among the oldest inhabitants.
Living to eat is not the highest kind of en
joyment When dyspepsia takes hold of your
stomach, and the demon indigestion gets a
good grip on you, you will realize tbe truth
of this assertion. When you feel as if there
was a kerosene lamp turned on at full blast
tn your epigastric region, and wben the num
berless aches and pains that arise from de
fective digestion rack your brain and send
needle pricks all over your body, you will not
care whether the dinners are old or new,
fresh or otberwue, and you will wonder that
ever you made sucb a fuss over your wife's
economies of cold victuals warmed over.
Take it with philosophy. It stands to rea
son that a woman cannot always be cooking.
And It Is sinful to waste things. And in
very family there must necessarily ba cold
victuals. Tbey must be worked up some
Come bravely to the front and accept the
situation. Eat the cold ham with a relish.
Be thankful for the bread pudding and nappy
over the hash. Console yourself with the
thought that you are doing your duty in eat
ing tha soup concocted from yesterday's
Smile over the cold victuals, and be glad
to greet them like old friends in a new guise.
You will be happier than yon will be if you
grumble over the unavoidable, and your wife
will tell ber less fortunate female friends how
good yon are, and all tha women in town
will wish they had a husband like you. Dont

The old fashioned Yankee parlor chair i
rarely seen nowadays, ft lingers, perhaps.
In the borne of the conservative; and manv
of us can recall tha stiff horse hair structure
standing on the carpet, patterned with huge
green and yellow cabbage roses, and against
the wall paper of gorgeous sunflowers. This
chair seemed modeled for discomfort Its
limbs, to express it modestly, each carefully
curved in tbe wrong direction; its back
scorned to minister to the weakness of the
flesh, and persistently refused to curve at all,
thereby discouraging all lazy, lounging hab
ita. Oue turns with relief to the equally
quaint but luxurious designs borrowed from
various historical epochs. The Louis XII
chair is a model for the drawing room. Th
legs are carved and fluted, the back alantj
slightly and is heavily decorated with em
blematic carvings, rising In an oval shape in
the ceuter. Tbe stuffs for covering tbesr
chairs are of patterns in close imitation of
those used before tbe Revolution, woven to
represent flower garlands, armorial devices
aud Coats of arms, inclosed with tbe wreaths,
tied with floating aud knotted ribbon, so
characteristic of tha decorative art of that
period. Table Talk.
Yachting is a pastime growing more into
favor with the Dutch. Their pleasure craft
are of two kinds the fiat bottomed boiejer,
with its bluff bows and great fee boards, sim
ply a dandified model of the usual t jalk, most
solidly built of varnished oak, clumsy to look
at but really fast in sailing, particularly in
running before the wind; and the beamy
center board yacht, of American model, of
which there are many at Amsterdam. All
the yachts are kept up with the utmost care,
the ironwork not galvanized but kept bright
polished, and the brasswork and varnish
danllng to behold. The Internal arrange
ments are also remarkably neat and good.
