THE WAY TO DO IT.
Tl e Improvement Association Sends
Mr. Carse to the Capital.

Over the Prospects Importaat
The regular monthly meeting of the
Reck Island Citizens' Improvement asso
ciation, was held at the rooms of the as
sociation in Harper's theatre building
last evening, President Ilass in the chair.
Afier the usual tprder of business had
been passed upon, the committees were
called in order, and when the Hennepin
canal was reached, Mr. Hass reported
up in the outlook as derived from his re
cent visit to Washington. The river and
ha-bor committee would undoubtedly
ha re made a showing last Monday had
General Henderson been able to call up
his report under a suspension of the rules
as lie had contemplated, but the death of
Senator Beck delayed action. Mr. nass
was satisfied, however, that Qen. llen
derson would not rest until he got his bill
before the bouse, and had its sanction ol
it. He believed the prospects of the
canal were most encouraging.
Under the head of manufacturing, props
osi lions were read from five
INDUSTRIES DESIROUS OF LOCATING IIEKE;
ono with a capital stock of $120,000 and
employing 2(h) to 500 men; one with a
capital of $75,000 and employing 200
men. and one with a capital of $50,000,
and two less important, but no lesi of in
ter -st to the association. These enter
prises all presented proof ot their stabil
ity, and the two largest did not ask un
reasonable inducements. All were re
ferred to the committee on manufacturing
to investigate and report at the next
meeting without fail. With the advan
tage of the Milan water power transmit
ted to Rock Island by electricity, as the
Messrs. Sears have practically decided to
do, many industries will spring up all
ovrr the city.
The committee on parks and boule
vards being called, progress was reported
in Speccer squire, and Commissioner
Jackson, who spoke of the pride he had
tHl.cn there as the agent of the associa
tion, also detailed some of his further
pit. us, which he hoped the council would
approve. He commended the council for
the cooperation it had given him.
Under the bead of public, buildings
and works, President nass related the
situation at Washington as fully detailed
in his special correspondence to the Ar
gds while away. lie emphasized tne
necessity, too, of having someone in
Washington to constantly watch the via
duct and the pubiic building bill, both of
which were reasonably certain of success
if there was someone on hand to look
aftor them. His report was received
with much enthusiasm, ami his sugges
tion that the association send- Vice-!
President Carse j
TO WASHINGTON AT ONCE,
wa. warmly concurred in. It was decided
that Mr. Carse should start Sunday morn
ng in order to be on hand early Tuesday
morning, and upon motion the
asstc.alton appropriated fO out
of its treasury for a portion of
the expenses, and upon a further
moion a committee, was appointed
composed of Messrs. John Crubnugh, J.
M. Buford and J. J. Rt-imers to solicit
subscriptions to a fund sufficient to keep
him there at least a month. President
Hsjs pledged himscif to provide the rail
way transportation to find from Wash-
ngton independent of the subscriptions,
which are simply for expenses while there.
The secretary was authorized to em
ploy assistance in Collecting all delin-
quencies in dues to the association and to
rep rt at the nest meeting.
Ir. Paul presented the names of Col.
H. B. Burgh and Mr. Wm. Sears, of
Senrs, as members and they were elected
um.iiimously as was Mr. C. F. Gaetjer
presented by Mr. W. S. Knowlton.
Various communications from commer
cial bodies and Citizens' associations ask
ing cooperation in securing different pro
ject were received and referred to proper
cocunittees and the association ad
journed. This morning President Hass, of the
Improvement, association, received a
dispatch from J. C. Courts, clerk of the
committee, stating that the sub-commit
tee on the sundry civil bill will meet
every day next week. Hence the impor
tance of Mr. Carse's departure next Sun
day in order to be in Washington all the
Jam a tattle Uisger.
City Attorney J. B. Oikleaf, of Mo-
linu. was in the city yesterday. He is
jubilant over the anticipation of paving
in Moline. He realises that the improves
ment will involve additional work on his
part, but he does not dread it. Hia sense
of pride is to be so gratified, he flays, that
he glories in the labor and is eager for it
to commence. "Moline docs not propoie
to be backward in this paving business."
he said, with a determined air. "Rock
Islund is not the only city In this ptrt of
the state that can pave, and what's more,"
he continued triumphal tly. "we are go
ing- to use a larger paving brick than
you have here, too, when we get to pav
Oakleaf has caught the spirit of Mo-
tin j's rivalry, in that ever present desire
to lo something just a little bigger than
Rock Island. Bu. if it succeeds in the
matter of its paving brick, it will be the
fin t time and Rock Island will be far
frcm discouraging the suburb in the
eatt in its ambition in this regard
Oakleaf can no doubt secure a special
mdd for the work to be done in that
city, and any that are not .larger than
Rrck Island's should be spliced before
go ng into the street.

A FESTIVAL OF FLOWERS.
A Beautiful Garden Scene at the
Rink Last Night.
A H amorous Character School Room
Mreae Who Took Part In the Two
The May festival at the Rick Island
rink continues to attract immense crowds
nightly. Last evening was no exception
to the rule. The entertainments assigned
the evening were a pretty operetta, "An
Evening in the Garden," and the humor
ous character scene, "A Pioneer Peda
gogue." Both were admirably presented !
and heartily appreciated. As a mounting
for the operetta, which was first given, a
screen had been painted by Misses Liz
zie Kembie and Hattie Jackson, repre
senting a landscape, showing Ja field im
bedded with flowers of various hues, over
which appeared the sky, through which
twinkled numerous little stars, and the
moon shone. Oa the screen, so
artistically designed ar.d arranged
that they looked as though they
really grew there, were blossoms, in
the centre of which appeared a face,
the person presenting it being con
cealed behind a screen. Thus it was that
each flower was given voice. The flow
ers were represented by the following:
Buttercup, Miss Florence Magill; touch-me-nots,
Misses Mattie Jones and
Hattic Cropper; peony, Mrs. Mil
ton Jones; pond lily. Miss Minnie
Hodgson; violets, Mi9S Nettie Caoper. of
Moline, and Miss Eva Hics; pansy, Miss
Anna Schnitger; rose, Mrs. S. W. Searle
and Miss E.litha Kendall, and a faded
flower. Miss Emma McChesney; sunflow
er, Mr. Chas, Skinner, of Moline, while
Mr. Sewall Dodge was the moon, and
Mr. Sherman W. Sarle the gardener.
From the lips of some of the fl r 1 re
presentations came the rendition of nu
merous popular airs, as follows: "The
Flowers that Bloom in the Spring," Hat
tie Cropper and Mattie Jones; "Come
Buy My Flowers," Hattie Cropper; "Song
of the Gardner," Mr. Searle; "Little Buts
tercup," Mis Fio Magill; "Touch-Me-Not,"
Mattie Jones. "Sweet Violets,"
Misses Crooper and Hiss; "O.ily a Pansy
Blossim," Miss Anna Schnitger;
"Roses, Sweet Rises," Miss Ken
dall and Mrs. Searle; "Dancing
Peony." Mrs. Milton Jones; " 'Tis But a
Little Faded Fower." Miss McChesney, of
Davenport; with "The Man in the Moon"
by Mr. Dodge; and "An Angel ia the
Garden of Roses," by Miss Ella Wilcox,
with tableau. Toe entertainment was
prepared and presented undnr the direc
tion of Mrs. E. C. Cropper. Miss CI ir
Ilass acting as pianist.
"a pioneer pedagogue "
Immediately following the operetta
came the humorous sketch "A Pioneer
Pedagogue," representing a scene in one
of our erly schools. In which Mr. W. C.
Collins who had prepared it, appeared as
the teacher, Miss Jessie Bogue as the un
rfttTJ Scholar "Sirah." Mr. Sjwall Dodge
as "Jack." and MisAhClSchnitger as
'Sarah's Aunt." The othr pupils wffr;
Mable Campbell, Salome Norris, Ella
Bahnsen, Bessie Battles, Harry Campbell,
Chas. D:v's. Howard Jobnson. Martin
Norris, Frank Allen and Fred Pollard.

and was richly enjoyed.
This evening Prof. Bowlby's grand con
cert occurs, and tomorrow afternoon the

ladies will serve a chicken dinner from 12
to 1 tomorrow for twenty-five cents. A

Wednesday evening Chas. Aswegc, an
employe of Deere & Co's. blacksmith
shop. Moline, met with an accident that
will in all likelihood deprive him of the
sight offtfTonly remaining eye. He was
making a weld in a beam for a gang
plow, when by some mysterious chemical
combustion of a portion of the molten
borax used in welding was thrown off the
beam, striking the corner of his left eye.
Dr. Merry man, who attended him, says
the burn extends over the pupil of the
eye, and that in healing it will ycry prob
ably leave a scar that will forever obscure
Mr. Aswege's sight. It will be five years
next September since Mr. Aswege met
with his first calamity in the loss of his
right eye. He was then at work in the
same shop, chiseling a cultivator beam,
when a piece of the 6teel flew and struck
his eye, destroying the a'ght so effectual
ly that the efforts of a noted Chicago
specialist to restore it proved fruitless.
He is a strong, healthy man in the prime
of life, being still in his thirties, and
what renders his misfortune all the great
er, has dependent upon him a family cons
sisting of a wife and four children.
The Virtnes or the Onion.
Says an eminent physician: If I should
be asked what was the best substitute for
quinine I should say onions. Time and
again the sleep producing virtues of the
loud smelling onion have been sung, but
comparatively few know how yaluable it
is as a cure for chills and ague. Several
customers expl-'.ned their boycott on
quinine by Baying onions are cheaper and
quite as eflectiverand one man in partic
ular, who has been a martyr to malaria
for years, has been another being since
he acquired the habit of chewing onion
peel. The onion is nsed frequently to
cure rheumatism with varying success.
I never heard of its failing when perse
vered in as a cure for malaria or chills.
