The older an institution, an industry,
tr a mercantile establishment becomes,
tie more Interest attaches to it and the
note important it becomes to the general
ub'ic. It is for this reason that the
thirty-first Christmas and New Year's
ale of holiday goods of R. Cramp ton &
(Jo. is a matter of pnblic concern. This
t uslness bouse is always a center attrac
tion, and particularly does it become so
is the years advance, each one crowning
it with laurels of approval and success.
Experience, the great teacher of the unis
verse, is likewise the great instrument of
i.uccess in business life. It teaches not
only tbe essential principles, but it
reaies an appreciation of human taste
and idea, varied as both are and hard to
please, yet it is possible to catch tbe eye
)f public approval as is witnessed by Mr.
Crampton's good judgment.
One in search of suitable articles for
holiday remembrances need go no further
than this pioneer and reliable business
bouse to be satisfied. No more attrac
tive stock, more extensive in quantity or
varied in quality can be found west of
Chicago. In books, which is made a
SMcialty as usual, there is a rich supply
suitable for all conditions of humanity,
old and young. Books always make an
acceptable present, no matter what else
is given or received. As has been truly
said, "Books are a guide in youth; an en
tertainment in age." Never before was
merit and value in quality combined with
cheapness in price, as is the case this sea
son. At Crampton'a a complete library
may be stocked with standard works for
what waa once considered a reasonable
price for one set. For f." one may
get all he can carry away. Books are
tbe comfort of age and the delight of
childhood. Commencing with that book
of books, tbe bible, tbe Oxford and Bax
ter bible, large family and pocket
bibles, testaments, prayer-books and
hymnals, to dictionaries with stand at
tachments. Chambers' Encyclopedia,
pocket diaries for 1890, and memoran
dum books, down through the various
lines of work, of poetry, fiction, art, mis
cellany, etc.; tbe stock is most complete
and elaborate, and the prices as varied as
the books. Bound juvenile books, that
formerly cost tl such as "Chatter-
Box," etc.. are seen here at twenty-eight
to fifty-four cents. Booklets too, beauti
ful, and at prices that are astonishing,
suitable for day school or Sunday-school
souvenirs, or ordinary Christmas gifts.
In toilet goods there is a rich display.
also a One assortment of autograph al
bums, manicure sets, broom hold
ers, bronze goods, papeteries, card
cases, paper knives.collar and cuff boxes.
comb and brush sets, cigar cases, smok

Passing through tbe store yesterday a
reporter was attracted by the display of
gold pens and pencils, and noticed also
tbe line of sealskin card cases, pocket
books, and other articles in plusb
and leather, also by tbe lovely bisque
statuettes, bronze goods, band painted
decorated porcelain ware and manj oth
er things, that it would be a delight to
describe but space forbids. There was
this thought above all that darted into
the mind of the press representative as
he left the pioneer house, that if any
one is struggling with the ailment so com
mon about the holidays what to buy
tor a present a visit to Crampton'a store
will effect a speedy and in every way
abundantly satisfactory cure. Try it and

IMPORTANT COURT CASES.
Two Iatereatlaa Trials at Daveapart
Tbe case of Iowa vs. Chris. Strieker,
robbery, was on trial to a jury in the dis
trict court at Davenport yesterday.
Tbe story as outlined by the testimony
the Democrat- Qazette, is substantial
ly as follows: On the night of November
1st the defendant attended a dance at
Larhmann's hall. Late in the evening a
man named Joseph Huber, of Rock Is
land, was compelled to go home, not
feeling exactly well, and the defendant
accompanied him in a carriage. Huber
was not more than half conscious when
he reached home, but some little time lat
er his wife learned that he was minus a
bundle of bills amounting to, about (175.
Strieker came back to Davenoart and
made a night of it. Next morning Huber
and his friends appeared, charged him
with tbe theft of the money, and de
manded its restoration. After some time
Strieker produced tbe money, and it is
now in possession of tbe clerk of tbe
court and is used in evidence.
The defense allege insanity, aud the
time of tbe court yesterday mornine was
taken up in hearing evidence to that ef
fect. Coroner Bawden and County Phy
sician De Armond both testified to bis
insanity, having been called to attend
him at times when be was showing un
questionable evidence of dementia, at one
time being found insensible as though
just coming out of a fit. Tbe defendant
has been an inmate of Mercy hospital
most of the time sinceNov. 5.
Tbe case of John U. Randall, defend
ant, in action for disbarment, was taken
up at 2 o clock. His attorney. Mr.
Chamberlain, slated that tbe case would
have been settled without trial long ago
on an apoeal for clemency, but that Ma j.
sillier, ol umaua, senior partner of tbe
defendant, bad advised pushing it to a
trial, tie added that Mr. Randall felt
that he bad done wrong; that be was
sorry, and, in effect, that be would never
do it again, and ttat he desired simply
to tnrow uimseil upon the clemen
cy of the court. Mr. Randall himself
rose to his feet and stated that tbe case
was urged for trial by bis partner and
against his will, and that be should have
thrown himself on the mercy of tbe court
long ago had not bis own views been
overborne by tbe advice of his older and
more practised partner.
Judge W aterman responded briefly, and
in substance that while he had no desire
to inflict any severe penalty upon the de
fendant, ne was unable to shut bis eves
to the fact that the law bad been violated
and that tbe offender must meet tbe
penalty. In compliance with bis duty be
was compelled to pronounce sentence.
It was very lenient (suspension of license
to practice in Iowa for the space of thirty
Randall, it will be remembered, is the

exorbitant fees out of a Davenport sa

inefficiency in fire departments. Tbe
Kansas-eyed institution may think the
firemen don't understand its policy of
pretended friendship to them in attempt
ing to oppose an improved service, but
they do, and its Idiotic declarations are
wasted. Tbe Union has fought every
improvement that tbe firemen have bad
thus far, every one of which have had
their origin with the A hods, as every
honest fireman will testify. The A rocs
as the friend of the volunteer firemen,
wants to see them have every convenience
possible and it has aided them with all iis
influence in obtaining such improve
ments, but it is also the friend of ad
vancement and of public improvements,
and, in conformity with that course is
unrelentingly in favor of a paid fire de
partment and Rock Island will have one
next yar, too.
