Arsenal Council 171, National Union,
held an interesting meeting last evening.
After the regular order of basinets, dur
ing which initiation took place, the com
mittee on entertainment announced that
a banquet bad been spread in honor of
the chaplain or the council, Rev. A. E.
Meldrum. who is soon to leave Ruck Isl
and and thereby atver his social relations
with the Rook Island branch of the
aoclety. It was at once discovered thtt
the spread was a most elaborate one in
all details and that a great deal 1 1
kill as well as an unmistakabe
appreciation of the common weal,
nesxes of the human system had
been abown in its preparation. The ta
bles were beautifully decorated wi h
flowers which infused the atmospbe e
with their delightful fragrance. The
menu included oysters in various stjlts,
meats, sardines, cake, fruits cicars fir
those whose conscientious scruples do
not prevent an indulgence.
Past President II. D. Mack presided as
master of ceremonies and at the concl j
sion of the feast he introduced Preside ot
Robert Bennett, who made a brief ad
dress, directed chiefly to Mr. Meldrum, to
whom be expressed the regret of tie
council at his departure and assured bim
that be would carry with bim to bis n ;w
field the affection, good will and God
speed of the society in Rock Island.
Mr. Meldrum replied, compliment ng
the order on its principles and purposes
and expressed his regret at the for-ed
separation of the associations which he
had always enjyed. He stated ttial
while be would not be able to f urt ier
participate in the meetings of the orler
here, be would still retain bis meniherstiip

"It's going to be an open winter!" yells
one long eaied prophet with the bot e in
bis band. "Around the shank of the
goose bone a row of dots are fojnd.
These are indicative of temperature. The
darker the spots the colder the weather.
The circular marks divide the bone into
the three winter months. Near the oiot
of this particular bone there is a marked
discoloration, showing that the first days
of winter will give decided intimatiou of
the season's change. Therein doet the
bone accord with the deductions from
the meteorologies! observations tbttthe
first days of winter will be cold." The
goose bone prophet claims that mild
weather will prevail in all tho inter
months, and that there will be a few days
when running water will free.e. The
coldest weather will be experience!' be
tween January 25 and 30. and the warm,
sunny weather will prevail during tl e first
half of the month. Christmas da will

No matter about the goose bonr, the
corn husk, the muskrat house and the

ing do point to an open winter. The 1st

weather is as mild and streets as sloppy
as in April, and coal men are beginning
to wonder if it is ever going to let up.
The grocery and flour and feed firm of
Strerkfus & Scbaab has been dissolved,
as will be seen by reference to unother
part of the paper. The business will in
the future be conducted by Scl.aab &
Woltens, who respectfully ask a continu
ation of the favors shown the la'e firm.
Mr. John Slreckfus will devote Ids time
in the future to his steamboat interests.
The store has been practically rue by Mr.
Schaab for several years, as Mr. 8 1 recks
fus' outside interests have taker nearly
all bis lime and attention. Mr. Scbaab
is a Orstclass business man, is t pusher
and thoroughly understands the business
be is engaged in. Mr. Joseph W jllens is
brother-in-law of Mr. Schtab and
comes from Davenport, where ho has
lived for many years. He possesses the
necessary qualifications to makf a good
business man, and the new firm will un
doubtedly do as large if not a larger
business than the old.

Peter E. Lind, administrator of tbe es
tate of the late Mrs. Uirika C. Westman,
who met her death on tbe Fifteenlb
street crossing in Moline, Saturday even
ing, Nov. 23, has decided in behalf of tbe
heirs to enter suit against the C, B. &
(j. railroad company, for $5.00o, and for
tbat purpose has retained tbe legal lers
vices of J. B. Oakleaf. The Ditpatch
says tbe amount sued for cauld bave
been made higher but for tbe limit placed
by tbe statue, which ssys that $5,000 is
the highest figure tbat can be asked in
cases where death occurs before tbe sc
tion is brought. Mrs. Westn- an 'a death
was instant, but had she lingered until
the suit had been entered, hi her dam
ages could, and doubtless would have,
been asked .

Tbe report of Truant Officer Kimball
for November was read and ordered filed
Since my last report I have found no
children of compulsory age that are not
enrolled in some school, and I bave no
knowledge af any such within tbe dis
trict. Some families, however, after their
children bave been in attendance for a
season, practice retaining more or less of
their children at borne in periods ranging
from one day to one month or more.
Whenever such cases bave come to my
knowledge I bave invariably called upon
the parents and informed them that such
action on their part waa contrary to the
spirit or tbe law, say nothing of the lett
ter. After having become satisfied that
such was tbe case, they bave promised
to keep them in school constantly, which
promise I believe is now complied with
in most cases. I bave during the month
of November arrested twenty-four
truants and returned tbem either to their
parents or their teachers. In accordance
with vour instructions I bave called on
tbe different private schools and find that
the studies required by law are taught in
English by all except Mrs. Roessler's.

vance far enough to take up tbe History

standing, and as such will enjoy a literal
benefit from that orcanizatio'n. What
makes Tracy's case a fit one for the sym
pathy of his fellows, notwithstanding the
ircumstances already related, is the fact
that he will never be able to follow bis
trade hereafter. But there are dozens of
other vocations at some of which the
young man will probably be able to make
living. As it is now, however, be will
have to accept tbe pension given bim

and if any such impression haseone forth

seems that while the Vitpateh report was
reasonably accurate, some of the o'.her
papers in depending solely on the police.
have gotten Tracy's name mixed up with
that of another man who has bad cause
to evade tbe Moiine officers on certain
occasions. Bui as for Tracv. fellow
work nen inform us positively, that
though he be a diinking man, be has not
been in any scrspes in Moline previous
to Maiurday night. Report from tbe bos

Interesting legal proceedings are being
indulged in at Port Byron today. Smith
& Orant is the title of the firm running
the steam ferry boat, "MayHower,"which
in tbe summer time plies between Port
Byron and LeClaire. Recently the ferry
owners withdrew their boat, and placed
her on the ways for repairs, and since
then a man named Johnson, of LeClaire,
has been doing a ferry busiuess by meana
of a skiff. Now Smith & Orant bave
bad Johnson arrested for infringement,
claiming that they hold the exclusive
franchise for ferriage at that point
Johnson holds tbat the franchise held by
tbe Port Byron people is for a steam fer
ry only, and that it does not apply to a
skiff. The hearing of tbe case is in pro
gress at Port Byron this afternoon.

Tbe pretence of mind shown by an Ohio pby-

ber was severed by a full upon a aharp corner,
and tbe attendant M. D., by promptly placing
the surrendered piece where it belonged, se
cured a healing "by Brat intention," and tha
subsequent restoration of tbe organ, plus an
Leas successful waa the replacing of a news
by a young man of this city many years ago.
While engaged in playfully "fencing" with a
companion, a reckless pass cleanly cut off the
young fellow's nose. Ha bad not studied
physiology for nothing, and, acting upon this
knowledge, grabbed tha severed organ and
clapped It on tbe bleeding surface It had just
quitted. Then his nosa was bound firmly oo,
and nature was loft to take ber course. She
did this admirably. When the bandages
were removed the two parta were found to be
grown together beautifully. Nothing could
be nicer, except tbat the unfortunate young
man bad put his noae.on upside downl Tba
nostrils stood aa open to heaven as the flues
at tbe apex of a chimney.
The memories that come down through a
vista of thirty years, since this aad affair took
place, are a trifle misty and unreliable as to
the subsequent career of the man with the
inverted nose. He is believed to be dead.
During his life, however, he was known to
declare that, for purposes of snuff taking, ha
bad the very finest nose In tbe world, but
that to be caught in a heavy shower, without
an umbrella, was tantamount to drowning.
lboae tbat are suddenly deprived of a nose
should be careful to replace it with the per
forations down. Human Ufa is made up of
trifles, and some of these bave power to en
