An lllaalaalra le-lxa W kirk I Br.
Ias M arte by Rev. a . A. Meaalrke mad
In a little room -ff from Rev. C. A.
Mennicke's study in the rectory of the
Evangelical Lutheran church, is a large
and highly ornamented arrangement,
which at first glance causes the beholdei
to exclaim: "Gorgeous!" And that word
explains it, too. The description is ar
after thought. Tbo first impulse rauic;
one to stand wrapt in admiration of tho
beautiful piece of workmanship: so rare.
so unique, and so graceful. But what
is it? Naturally enough this was tlu
first question that came from an Arkim
reporter's lips this morning after lis
stood some time absorbed in won
der and delight. "That, sir," came
Fath r Mennicke's reply, "it's what ae
call a cat!e. It is designed for our
Cnriatma. festival in the church and cn
that oceasion will be illuminated and I
think will make a very prettv feature."
"Indeed it will; but pray, who con
ceived and put together such a wonderf il
thing?" queried the reporter.
"It is the work of myself and my sot s.
A. C. and E. D. MenLicke. We htve
been working at it since last July almost
constantly; that is, putting in every pos
sible spare moment, and we will not iure
than have it completed in time for Cbrnt-mas."
The lovely piece of workmanship here
in alluded to is a castle-like affair, live
feet long, two wide and six and one half
in height and covering the entire surface
of a large table. The design is extren ely
graceful and ornamental, and is con
structed of wood covered wttb pt per
and metal ic bronze, etc., while the d ors
and windows are of dirllerent colored
glass. On the different towers aro i uit-
able motto, from the scriptures, hile
neatly arranged candlesticks afford
means of light as well a. power to im
pel the winged wheels on the top
and which give motion to the revolving
platforms inside, and on which are Im
ages so arranged aa to represent the birth
of Christ, soldiers, animals, birds, e.c.
After the castle has been used fr its
intended purpose, it should be pres-rved
for the world's fair at Chicago in '12.

Tl e Moline DUpateh of last evening
bad the following detail, of the assault
upon Geo. F. Adelman of that city on
the street, of Davenport, as alluded to in
the iRODs of last evening:
A dastardly piece of work to .ay the
lea.: wa. last night's performance of a
couple of Davenport thug, in the assault
offceorgeF. Adelman. a well known
Mol ner. Mr. Adelman went over to
Davenport yesterday afternoon to collect
some outstanding account., and in the
protection of his work entered the place
of Joseph Hermann on east Second
atrf et, near Brady, where be collected
about 15. He bad previously cellected
a n jrnber of bill, and must haye bad con
sid. rable money on hi. person. Leaving
He -mann's between 6 and 7 o'clock be
parsed on up Second street until near the
City hotel, where be .topped in the
sbf dow of a building to wait for a street
cat, when two men approached bim from
arc und the corner. One of them ad
dressed Adelman rather brusquely with
the remark. "Where are you going?"
"I am going home." ws. the reply.
"Well, where do you live, anyway?"
Adelman, who is a man of few words,
at this bscarae exasperated, and resented
thu continued cross-questioning of a
sti anger by telling bim to mind hi. own
He then walked out to the middle or
ths street to look for the car. but here
lif was confronted by the two men, and
the one who bad previously addressed
Adelman tsclaimed to his pal: "You
take the watch and III take the
nioneyl" And before Adelman bad
ti ne to realize the situation he was
si ruck a terrible blow on the forehead
ith aslung-shot; but the Moliner grap
pled with bi. assailant and bad bim by
tie neck with a firm grip when the other
r iViber struck Adelman a blow in the
iiouth with some heavy instrument, and
leiM him to the ground senseless.
Tbey then went through his pockets
t their own convenience, aud took Mr.
Adelman 's fine gold watch and chain and
i.ll the money he had. When he regained
i onsciousness he found that he wa.
helpless and robbed, and he called for
help uatil several persons issued frem the
iou-1 near at band, into which be was
oonveyed aud cared for by those who
Snew him. Some police officers who
aoard at the hotei immediately started in
pursuit of the thieves.
A Diiatch reoorter called upon Mr.
Adelman this morning at his home, 1124
Fourth avenue, whither be had been re
moved the night before, and learned in
addition to the above facts that be bad
sustained a compound fracture o? his
left ankle in falling from the effects of
the blow. He was not pressed to talk, on
account of the badly swoolen condition
of hi. mouth, but he informed the scribe
that he thought be would be able te
identify the man who struck him,
though he might not feel like swear
ing to It. He was a young man
about 5 feet 0 inches high; appar
ently twenty two or twenty-three years
old. An otneer from Davenport called
upon Mr. Adelman and informed him
tbtit a man resembling this general de
scription had been arrested, but Mr.
Adelman was too ill to be moved to Dav
enport to see him. He had spent a very
painful night with his broken ankle, and
complained of sharp pains in his fore
head. But Dr. Swan Hanson, who i. at
tending, says the skull is not broken, and
that the patient will doubtless come out
all right, though the fracture of the ankle
is a bad one.
The man arrested in Davenport has
given the name of John Gay. As soon as
Adelman is able to make the iournev he
will go to Davenport to trv to identify
The Davenport IeiaocraUGazetu of
this morning says:
The man referred to above as using a
"slung shot" was arresu-d immediately
after the affair by Officer Wafer, and
makes no denial of the fact that be
struck Adelman. Hi name is John Gay,
as before stated in these columns, and he
was yesterday bound over fortriai in the
sum or ?2tH) "until next Saturday, or such
later date as is necessitated by bis vic
tim's condition. He claims that the lat
ter insulted his mother, and for this he
knocked bim down, using nothing but
nature's weapons, however. Adelman'.
friends say that he is not that kind of a
man; he is an honorable man. and one
of the most prominent citizens of Moline.
Tar .rent Billiard Player. Well
Kaawa la Tala City. Waa lUrd Kr-rratls-
la rw Yerk.
Tbe Chicago -Vein says that with the
death in New York tbe other day of Har
vey McKenna, the billiard player who
became so well known is this city at the
time of hi. visit here a few weeks ago,
die. tbe game of billiard, known as
"straight rail" and the Setrt continues:
Tbe last two years McKenna had lived
a life of misery. Hereditary consumption
fastened upon him, and to it. torment,
were added those of inflammatory rheu
matism . Traveling near and far, tbe
billiard player, without a murmur, pur
sued his vocation, with the ever present
fear that, dying, he would leave penni
less bi. wife and sister. When men,
even his enemies, saw bim forced to cling
lo me itiniara laoie lor support, and still
moving tbe spheres along with that nev
er-ceasing click, click, all criticism was
bushed, and during tbe last year of his
life Harvey McKenna had as many
friends as there are lovers of the game or
It had always been a pet idea of Wm.
Catton's who in ISM had .aid that be
could discount McKenna. but subse
quently thought him to be without a
peer that McKenna could beat any man
on earth. Therefore it wa. that tbe Mc-Kenna-Schaefer
match was made, Cat-
tan, at Saratoga, during tbe summer
races, having effected a conp by which
be bad 92,500 to lose. A forfeit was
posted, tbe match to be played in Nov
ember. Through the death of Mrs.
Fchaeftr the game wa. postponed until
January next, and now the death or a
principal forever close, all argument as
to tbe merits of the men .
Richard Roche, Schaefer's backer, had
paid 500 for the postponement. Three
weeks ago, when be beard that McKenna
was dying in the hospital, he sent him
word: "Take down your forfeit and
when you need money send to me."
There have been few men, no matter of
what class or condition, that eyer fought
the inevitable with greater bravery than
did flarvey McKenna. When in Detroit
tbe doctor said, "You cannot live three
days." be responded: "Then I will go
to New York and see what they csn do
for me there." And to New York, on
pillows, be was taken. For tbe last two
years be had been dying, and yet to the
last was ever planning for the fntnre.
So worn and emaciated was be at the last
that his most intimate friends shudder-
ingly .aid, "I cannot look at him." and
the game fellow was dead many hour.
before bi. death was known to the pub

A subscriber asks: "What does the
word 'Moline' signify, and what is its
derivation?" We believe it is popularly
supposed in Rock Island to have been
appropriated bodily from the Scan
dinavian, but the best philological au
thorities place its raot with tbe French
language or possibly more directly with
the Latin. The Latin for tbe word mill
is "mola" or "roohna." the French is
mnulin," the Soanisn "molino." the
Italian "malina" or "molinus." Moline

Tbe Union devotes half a column more
this morning to a display of its shameful
idiocy concerning our fire department,
tbe object of which is to discourage the
paid department, and during the course
of its arguments in behalf of which it
makes the assertion that Rock Island's
volunteer department is as good as any
paid department and needs no improve
ment. That Rock Island has as efficient
a volunteer department as there is in the
country no one will deny, but it is not
equal to a paid service by any manner of
means, snd the Union displays a lack of
comprehension of the utility of a pail
service in making such comparisons as
il does. But that word "improvement"
is a woful one for the Union to swallow.
It has always been an impediment to it.
but nevertheless it has become DODular
in Rock Island and every year tbe city is
taking more stock in it. Next spring sn
enterprising council will become so in
terested in it that it will apply it to the
fire department. Tbe Union will then pros
trate itself at tbe feet of Mr. McEnirv
