8inje tbe A rocs' publication of an ar
ticle in a Quincy paper alleging that Otto
Heilwagon, aon of Wm. Heilwagon, who
died n tbe gallows here a few yeara ago
for the murder of his son's wife,
that lie and not his father had com
mlttecl the crime, nothing additional has
come to light on the subject except a let
ter to the Abous from Gust. Heilwagon,
of Qa ncy. referring to the statement re
cently published in the Arqcs. asking if
anyth ng further had been heard of Otto's
allege 1 confession. As the latter is re
ported to hare died near Quincy, Oust.
Heilw gon. who is evidently a brother,
should know as much about the case as
City Attorney J. L. llaas, who has
been laid up for two days in Chicago
with sjmething akin to -La Grippe," re-,
turned home last evening, and when
uesti ned as to the results of histavesti
gationi on the recent developments in
the Htil wagon case, said that so far he
bad le irned nothing, and that he was in
clined to believe the reports of Otto's
confes lions were part of another fraud.
Similar reports gained currency several
times tince tbe execution of Wm. Heil
wagon, and not a few will look upon
these litter assertions of Otto's destbbed
confesi ion as having no actual founda
tion in truth. S'iU the possibility has
not bw n entirely removed yet that Otto
made .he confession attributed to him
Any future developments will be awaited
with much interest.

Well authenticated information comes
to hand from Brainerd, Minn., that Wey-

renewed, but that at Chippewa Falls on
Friday li.st the enterprise was partly set
on its fet t based on tbe Northern Paoiflc
deal for timber. Tbe latter party re
quires the location of the mills at soma
point on the Northern Pacific and on the
Mississippi river, and this location is ex
pected to be at Brainerd inspite of a
great crusade against it an the part of
Minneapilis parties. Tbe syndicate is
to make it tour of inspection next week,
and on such advice a large meeting was
held Monday to arrange for the reception
of its members. The syndicate, as ru

County Superintendent cf Schools J.

tables on the subjects of physiology and
hygiene, which he has aid res ed to the
teachers of the county, accompanied by
the following address:
Owes or Couxtt 8trr tarns rdkxt or Schools,
hoc Iilai III., Jan. 16, ItfSO.
To the Teachers You are probably
aware that, after the first of July next,
teachers will be required to pass an ex
amination la the additional subject of
phjslology and hygiene. The Jaw as
written, seems to cover the subject so
comprehensively that the possession of
some knowledge of physiology and anat
omy by the teacher is necessary as a
basts ror the Intelligent teaching of hy
giene. Tbe discussion of matter and methods
of teaching what is required will be pre
sented at the 1890 county institute; but
personal preparation in tbe necessary
academic part of the work, in cases of
those teachers not so prepared, should
begin at once, using as much lime as can
be well spared for it for about two weeks
upon tbe matter covered in each of the
following eight tables of outlines. Use
any good modern works upon physiology
taking up the matter in the order indi
cated in the tables.
I have arranged to have instruction
given, free of expense to such of the
teachers as can conveniently attend, at
Kock Island, in the High school building.
The lessons, here, will be given every two
weeks, upon Saturday. Tbe first meet
ing will be held upon Saturday, January
25, at 10 o'clock a. m. A class may also
be organized at Port Byron and one at
J. H. Southwell. Co. Sup't
The following subjects are treated by
tbe outline tables: Tbe Skeleton, The
Muscles, The Skin, Respiration and the
voice, The- Circulation, Digestion and
Food, The Nervous System, The Special

We are soon to have one of tbe larg
est and most complete furniture establish
ments west of Chicago. Arrangements
have been perfected by which Clemann
& Salzmann will occupy the whole sur
face floor of the Harper theatre building
except the small room in the corner now
occupied by the Citisens' Improvement
association. The walls dividing the dif
ferent store-rooms, fronting on Sixteenth
street, will all be removed, the old floor
taken up and a fine hard wood floor laid.
This room will then be 40x60 in size, will
be elegantly lighted by the store fronts
on Sixteenth street, and will be devoted
exclusively to carpets and curtain goods.
This room will be accessible through a
large archway to the other departments.
Another large archway will be cut
through the wall between what is now
the carpet room and furniture depart
ments near the rear. When the new ar
rangement is completed the different de
partments will be more distinct. The
second floor of the west room
will be devoted exclusively to the dis
play of parlor furniture as usual
the first floor of the same room will con
tain general ferniture ez epting bed
room suits, as the whole lower floor ad
joining will be used for the display of
bel room furniture. A large corps cf
artists from the Adams Wall Paper com
pany are now very busy with paint,
paste and papier, transforming the inter
ior. John Volk & Co. will begin at once
to remove the walls and build the arches,
and in about three weeks the public will
see a grand furniture establishment. It
might be well to mention in this connec
tion that thia firm has purchased an enor
mous line of carpets to stock this large
new carpet room. The new stock em
braces all the prevailing styles and the
very latest patterns in Moquettes, Wil
tons, Brussels, ingrains, etc. The street
entrance to this establishment will be
through the first door west of the theatre
entrance, on Second avenue. In order
to guide you to the different departments,
