AT NO. 4.
Very interesting exercises were held at
schor l No. 4 on the occasion of the pre
sentation of tLe flag to that building. At
o'clock, the pupils, numbering about
240, -were assembled on the grounds in
front. President Thomas and Director
Barth, of the board of education, and a
large number of parents and frienu9 of
the pupils showed their kind interest by
their presence. With a few earnest and
enthusiastic words, in the name of the
citizens of Rock Island. Dr. J. W. Stew
art, standing on the terrace before the
pupils, presented the flag to the school.
Principal Bishop received it with some
anpy remarks, after which a vote of
thanks from teachers and pupils was ten

Fla. of the Free," while the flag was

the building. As it swung off to the
breoe, three hearty chcets were given by
at no. 6.
Toe exercises at building No. C were
well attended and were very entertaining,
and opened with the singing of "Amer.
ica" by the pupils. The flag was presented
by Robert Bennett, who said:
The citizens of this district have in
trusted to me the pleasant duty of prc
sentiig to this school building the flag of
ourcountrv. Some of you mav inquire,
what has this school to do with a flag?
Of what use can it be?' In answer I will
say that our public schools are a part of
the political institutions of our nation,
and iirejustly entitled to the flag as much
ho as any department of our government,
and in my opinion it is preeminently the
first in importance to the welfare, peace
and happtnes of our people. A republic
a "government of the people, by and
for the people," and its founders were
wipe in providing for our public school
system so as to give the nation a virtu
ous find educated citizen, capable of pre
serving and perpetuating the same. Our
acbo ls are established by law, controlled
by law, and maintained by a tax on prop
erty, and every child of pro
per aye may receive an education.
Eveiy child also has the right to
attetid our schools and prepare himself
for tbe duties of citizenship, to aid him in
the battle of life, whether mechan
ical, mercantile or professional. It is the
duty of tbe state to compel all children of
sound mind to receive a primary educa
tion for his own and society's sake.
The flig. There la a vast difference in
the principles of government of which
various flags represent. Some people are
taught the doctrine of the divine right of
the lew to rile, and the great mass of tbe
people must obey. Under such a gov
ernment education is not of such impor
tance. In a republic tbe people are sov-
erlgn and should receive tbe highest edu
cation. It 19 well that we compare tbe
privileges and blessings that we enjoy in
our country, with those of monarchial m-
8i unions, with illustrations. Our flag
means to us that we can worship God ac
cording to our conscience, gives us
free schools for all our children,
free speech, free press and free libraries.
so that when you are uirougu wuu
Echrol and still desirous of more learning
you can go to the library and obtain
books that will assist you in the problems
of life. Our public schools are the founs
tain i of learning, and every child receiv
ing a common education will be capable
of cherishing and perpetuating the bless
inge of good government. Our nags mean
all f ibis and much more. As you read
and investigate tbe history of our coun
try you will learn to love and venerate
this starry emblem. Miss Kirkpatrick,
this flag is typical of that which is good
and noble; it is the emblem of authority
and liberty; tbe cost of human life and
ntot ey to maintain the same I am unable
to state. I now place it in your keeping
May us presence be a blessing to you and
tbone in your charge.
Visa Kirkpatrick received the banner
gracefully and acknowledged the teach
era' and tbe pupils' appreciation of it in
a vt rv filtinz manner- Short addresses
foil )wed by Rev. J. II. Kerr, of the Cen
tral Presbyterian church. Mayor McCon
ochie, Mr. Win. Jackson. Postmaster
Howard Wells, Mr. W. A. Guthrie and
Dir-ctor Carter, of the board of educa
tior, all of whom paid Miss Kirkpatrick
deserved tributis for her efficiency. The
puiiis joined in tbe singing of "Colum
bia," and as the flag was raised the chil-
drei cheered it lustily, while the motor
on ".he Rock Island & Milan road sent up
shr eks of joy.
The exercises at No. 7 were opened in
the school yard by the pupils singing,
"My Country Tis of Thee." The flag
presentation to Miss Wilson, the princi
pal, was made by S. W. MoMaster, who
Tbe pleasant duty of presenting to you
as principal of tbe Seventh ward school
thii beautiful American flag, devolves
upon me. The means for the purchase
of tbe flag has been contributed by
no. iber of oar patriotic citizens, mainly
through the exertions of my public
spirited neighbor. Mr. John Reimers, as
well as for every other public school
bu lding in oar city. This flag is left in
thii care and charge of yourself and sac-
day whenever the weatner wm permit.
It is peculiarly appropriate that this ems
blem of our nationality should float from
every free school house in our broad land.
Tbat our public school tcacners snouia
ever endeavor to impress upon tbe minds
of these pupils, the principles for which
this flag stands or represents; it repre
sents freedom and equality. Strive to
impress upon them what it has cost our
nation in blood and treasure to keep and
maintain it intact and inviolate; tbe
agony and distress caused by the fearful
five years struggle when eleven rebellious
states sought to blot out eleven stars
from its bright folds; sought to go off into
empty space with their stars and bars
Thanks to an everruling providence and
the heroic efforts of our brave soldiers,
these wandering stars were brought back
and a number more have since been
added from the new west. Our system of
free public schools stands for similar
DrinciDles. for intelligence, for equality.
This system seeks to give to every child
of every nationality and race the rudi
ments of a good English education, so
tbat they may appreciate and prize what
it is to be a free American citizen, uns
trammeled and uninfluenced by old world
ideas, customs and practices.
I hone hereafter, whenever tuese origin
boys and girls of the Seveuth ward school
look up to this beautiful flag as it floats
to the breeze, they will reflect that this is
their own flag, the flag of their own be
loved country; that they will by their
good example and conduct hand down
and perpetuate to future generations tne
blessings they enjoy under our free
To this Miss Wilsin made an excellent
response. The Mag was then piaeeu in
position by Mr. J. J. Reimers and the
janitor. Then a song by tbe pupils,
The Red, White and Blue," after which
came a stirring patriotic speech from Mr.
To close the exercises "Home, Sweet
Home'' was sung, accompanied by instru
By this time teachers ami pupils were
so filled with enthusiasm that they lin
gered a little longer to cheer again fifes
and drums sounded and glad loud cheers
arose cheers this t'me simply because
thev are Americans and know how to

accompanied by martial music, the exor

The bock beer season of 1899 has burst
upon us, and news promises to be more
plentiful' for a few dajs. The festival
will close May 1. Bock beer is simply
an extra strong beer, the dark color being
obtained by treatment of the malt For
merly, when the brewera were dependent
upon the weather, bock beer was brewed
at about the middle of February and put
on tap ten weeks later, or the first Sun
day in May. In these days of refriger
ating and cooling machinery the brewer
makes his own weather, and he could
have bock beer at any time of the year if
he so desired. Tbe aim of the brewer is
now to make beer as light and clear as
possible, and but a limited quantity of
bock beer is made, and is only in the ob
servance of an old custom. Tbe bock
beer made in this country has the strength
of Eng'ish ale. as people who imbibe it
freely will discover.

reputation as an educator, four years ago
having been the democratic candidate for

The visiting teachers who have attend
ed sessions of the Rock Island schools
speak very complimentary and highly of
the discipline and deportment shown, as
well as the proficiency in the matter of
studies. They are agreeably surprised,
they say. and allude to the Rock Island
schools as equal to any in tbe state.and
superior to many.
The county superintendents concluded
their session last evening, having made
visit to Rock Island arsenal in the after
noon. Tbe late afternoon and evening
topics for discussion were teachers' insti
tutes, the new physiology law and com
pulsory education. Most of the superin

Among the county superintendents
now in the city, none occupy a higher

and in the wider field of usefulness and

It is reported in railroad circles at Des

agent of the Chicago, Burlington &
Quincy, is to be made superintendent of
the Iowa line s. and tbat tbe present su-1
perintendent, W. C. Brown, will be pro-
moted to some position made vacant
through the rhange Incident to the retire
ment of II. B. Stone. The likelihood of
the promotion of Mr. Brown has been
intimated before in the A rocs.
As indicated by the meeting of con
ductors representing all divisions of the
Rock Island road in this city last Sun-1
day, there is a general movement on foot!
among the conductors of the Rock Island
to win some concessions from their ems
plovers. The exact nature of their wishes I
is something that no fellow can find out.
but it is reported to be something other
than a matter of mosey. The subject!
has been considered in meetings of the
men all over the system, and ia now in
the bands of General Manaeer St. John.
Whatever it is it will unquestionably be
settled without anything like serious dif
ficulty. Little information is poosessed
by the officials here on the matter.
Every tissue of the body, every bone,

more healthful by the use of Hood's Sar
Am Annalng Incident.
This is told on JoeGettemy. of Moline,
and it is said that he first gave it away to
his friends himself: He rode up the hill
in that town en one of the electric cars.
When he reached his destination be took
hold of what he thought was the bell
cord. After yanking it vigorously about
twenty-five times, the driver, in an ex
cited manner, opened the door and said:
"For goodness sake, man, let go that
cord; you've rung up more farts now
than we will carry in a month. Joe
didn't see the point at first, and told the
driver tbat he ought to stop tne car.
Finally the mistake dawned upon Joe that
he pulled the register cord instead of the
bell rope, and be bustled off tbe car as
quicklv as possible, wondering how he
could have made such -a mistake.
