Nature smiled her prettiest on the pa
triotic devotion of the American people
yesterday. It seemed as if heaven itself
was anxious to contribute its share to the
gorgeous success of the day, and that it
was not a more brilliant success than it
was, was not due to any lack of inspira
tion that the weather afforded. It was
the loveliest day that could bave been
designed, and if man failed to erjiy it to
the fullest extent, it was because he was
either not patriotically inclined or was of
an ud appreciative nature. It was in
truth a day that would bring to mind the
Oh, brothers, come ! The breath of heaven is
One draught can make the glare and master
The grace of liberty softens year by year.
And In a richer Hood the stream of life flows on
The one hundred and fourteenth year
of American freedom was quietly ob
served in Rock Island from tbe fact that
a very large per centaee of our popula
tion went out of town to celebrate and
we welcomed several from abroad to help
us enjoy the day. The only local public
demonstration was the picnic given under
the auspices of tbe Rock Island Indus
trial Home association at Andrews'grove,
the new park at the bead of Thirty-first
street and two blocks south of Moline
avenue. It is a beautiful place for a
picnic, naturally commanding a fine view
acd the lay of the land would not he al
together faulty were it improved and ex
tended as it should be.
There was a street parade composed of
the various labor organizttions in the
morning, tbe procession forming on Mar
bet tquare and proceeding by way of
he principal streets to Andrews'grove.
Tbe column was headed by President J.
W. Cavanaugh, of the Industrial Home
association, and President Gustave Klotz,
of tbe Rock Island. Carpenters' Union,
and by Bleuer's band. Tbe labor socie
ties represented were the carpenters,
painters, stone cutters, masons, tailors
and the typographical union. Davenport
and Moline were well represented. A
number of appropriate banners were car
ried, tbe most notable among the in
scriptions displayed being this: "Labor
is the Creator of all Wealth;" "Eight
Hours for Work, Eight Hours for Rest,
Eight Hours for Education;" "Organiza
tion is Necessary tor Our Protection;"
We Extend a Helping Hand to all
Brothers of Honorable Toil." Tbe new
silk flag of the Industrial Home associa
tion was carried for the first time. It is
an unusually handsome banner, having a
border of gilt fringe, the dimensions be-
ng four by six feet.
At the grounds the exercises were of
an informal nature. There were no
speeches or set examples of any form.
The dance hall was the main attraction.
though the various stands were well
patronized. The affair was conducted in
a thoroughly orderly manner, and abund
ance of enjoyment was provided for all
who visited tbe grounds.
At night there was a fine display of fire
OUT OF TOWN.
Demonstrations In tbe Kelgborbood aad
The excursions by rail and by river
commanded a large share of public at
tention and patronage. Tbe excursions
on the C, B. & Q to Sterling and on the
R. I. & P. to Cable, were both large as
were those on the Libbie Conger and
Golden Gate to Clinton, and the Jo Long
to LcClaire, while the White Eagle brought
up a big crowd from MuBsatine who
spent tbe afternoon in tbe city. A num
ber of people enj iyed the G. A. R. cele
bration, including a sham battle at
Scbuetzen park, Davenport. The F. C.
A. Denkmann took out a private excur
sion last evening, Ahe boat going down
the river as far as Fairport. A grand
pyrotechnic display occurred from the
Cable. July 4. Cable has a merited
reputation Tor faithfully carrying out all
details as programmed with additional
and novel features, and hence the crowds
that congregated before 8 o'clock today to
parliciptte in our Fourth of July festiv
ities. Carriages came pouring in from
all directions, and before 9 o'clock over
2. SOU bad congregated at points of ad
vantage on the streets awaiting the
parade. At 9 o'clock the procession
formed at the Congregational church
beaded by tbe Cable Cornet band of
twenty four uniformed artists, followed
bv a large pavilion drawn by four horses
bearing fortv-four bright little misses
representing the states, presided over by
the Goddess of Liberty and Uncle Sam
who served tbe Goddess in the capacity
of shade supporter. Then followed
gaily decorated wagons illustrative of the
various trades and professions. The
company store had a fine display of mer
chandise; Hebblen & Dunglegaetb, con
tractors and builders, had a fine display
of finishing material with carpenters at
work; J. J. Williams was busy at work
amidst spouting, pans, pots and kettles
and his wagon fairly glittered with bright
tinware; W. F. C. Hhroeder parsed with
a fine display of boots and shoes; O. E
Tandoe, harnessmaker, had a very taste
fully rigged wagon with harness.
saddles, nets, etc., and an appren
tice on the horse stitching away; the
Cooperative Tiie Company were at
work moulding bricks, and bad another
outfit containing a large cube of
coal with miners at work blasting and
drilling on the route. Haigh & Bon
were represented by a neatly gotten up
meat' market, over which Thos. Haigh
presided with artistic grace. Wray &
Adams had perhaps the most tastefully
decorated organ entraine, representing
an apothecary's shop with pyramids of
popular medicines and fancy toilet ar
tides of virtua, over which Frank Hays
presided. Gus Doxsee described him as
tbe poison taster in chief. George Law
son had bis forge in full blast. A large
crate full of wild dogs and a wi d man
captured near Dog town, by Gus Dox
see, took the cake.
The U. 8. mail, the underground ex
press, the champion greyhounds, restau
ranters and allegorical representations
made up the remainder of the display on
wheels, which was followed by "Wild
Bill," an Indian scout in command of
fifty grotesque boomers. inen ioi
lowed citizens in carriages and on foot,
led by Marshal Haigh. The procession
met the Rock Island excursion at the de
pot, and after parading the principal
streets marched to the grounds. Oa the
grounds, the president of the day, Dr. A.
L. Wray, after a few chaste and aporo
priate remarks, introduced the Riv.
Smith, who offered np an invocation. A
song by the glee club, an overture by
the band, followed by the club, and the
president introduced Master George
Forster, who read the Declaration, which
was followed by both instrumental and
vocal music, after which Guy C. Scott, of
Aledo, was introduced as the orator of
the day. The effort was an exhaustive
and able one, and closed the programme
for ihe forenoon.
In the afternoon speeches were made
by Dr. Wray, Rev. Smith and Mr. Sam
uelson. Tbe young people then betook
themselves to the "bowery," the boys
took in the races, pitched rings at the
cane stand, knocked the babies down
with the balls, or shot for the bull's eye
in the gallery, and ever and anon imbibed
lemonade, or treated the lassies to delic
ious cream. Thus the day wore away
and many lingered on the dancing pavil
ion. Three thousand five hundred is a
conservative estimate of the number on
the grand. Every body Tated the occa
sion a pronounced success. Such it was,
notwithstanding the envious and purely
fabricated rumors as to fatal and epidem
ic sickness sent afloat by the envious
suburbs or Cable, viz: VioU and New
Windsor, which can never draw a crowd
except by sciriog people into them; this
time it was a merited failure. Great
credit is due the unceasing efforts of J. J.
O'Neill and G. F. Haigh. to whose per
sonal efforts the success of the day was
largely due. Not a single disturbance
marred the prevailing harmony from Be
ginning to close. . Justus.
Coal Valley, July 4. The Fourth of
July was celebrated here with appropri
ate ceremony. In the morning the pro
cession formed in the street opposite the
Coal Vallev house. The most attractive
feature was forty-two girls draped in
white, wearing sashes representing tbe
states, and with the goddess of lib
erty. They rode in wagons well dec
orated, with tbe goddess in front in
an elevated seat. Tbe line formed,
and managed by T. J. Murphy, mar
shal, proceeded to the grounds in
good taste. The exercises commenced
at 10:45 a. m. The Union band of Rock
Island was present, and rendered patri
otic airs. The president, J. Barton.made
a short address of welcome. The chil
dren representing tha states sang "Ihe
Red, White and Blue." and tbe chaplain,
Wm. Cook, invoked tbe divine blessing,
after which the declaration ot independ
ence was read bv Prof. J.H.Stoddard.
The glee club rendered in good style
"America. Then the orator of the day.
Mr. J. T. Kenworlhy, of Rock Island.was
introduced, and spoke three-quarters of
an hour. The oration was one well
worthy of the attention it received. He
showed tbe bright side of our country
and its institutions, and in conclusion
showed the dangers with which tbe coun
try is confronted in a terse, unimpas-
sionrd sty'e, and so cleverly elucidated
that all could understand and fully ap
preciate. Mr. K.. who was accompa
nied byhis wife and little daughter, after
dinner took tbe train for Rock Island.
In the afternoon out on the road on
tbe north side of the grounds, there were
a numt er of sports. Tbe first, a couple
of ponies ran, afterwards two more en
tered, and ran a couple of beats. Tbis
caused a good deal of enthusiasm. The
track was not good, and did not

There were some runners from Rock Isl ¬

records for amateurs. The band kept up
the interest with soul stiring airs in the
About 3 p. m. tbe dancing pavilion
opened and kept going through the even
ing till dark. Tbe display of fire works
commenced as soon as darkness permitted
and made a fine display. After night
fall the pavilion was well occupied and
on account of tbe chilliness of the even
ing they did not continue but a short
time after midnight. Everything went
of well.. The children were there in
force. The crowd was medium, just
enough to make things comfortable.
Talor Ridoe, July 4. The Taylor
Ridge celebration was a success. The
parade in the morning was novel, patri
otic and attractive. The Reynolds band
beaded the procession and made a good
appearance, besides discoursing some fine
music. It was the first appearance of the
band. Tbe demonstration at Dunlap s
grove attracted a large crowd. The ora
tion was delivered by Mr. C. J. Searle, of
Rock Island, and was a splendid effort.
Tbe other exercises were interesting and
heartily appreciated and tbe eports and
games, etc., much enjoyed.
There Were Several of Them, but None
The Fourth did not pass without tbe
customary list of accidents, though hap
plly none were of an extremely serious
nature, so far as can be learned. There
were, to be sure, numerous burned lin
gers, singed eyebrows, etc., but not suffl
ciently severe to cause alarm.
Tbe excursion train which left here
for Sterling on the C, B. & Q , at 9:20,
met with an accident at Denrock at 11
o'clock. It was pulled by engine 372,
Ed . Dempscy, engineer. Conductor Fra-
zer being in charge, and in the west end
of the Denrock yards it collided with en
gine 72, of the Chicago division which
was switching. The pilots of both en
gines were demolished, and the passen
gers pretty badly alarmed. Engineer
Dempsey and Fireman Graham, of the
Rock Island engine, escaped, as did the
engineer of the 72, but the fireman of the
latter lomotive had his leg badly sprained,
Trains were delayed two hours in conse
quence of the accident.
Mr. Geo. Heisel, of No. 1302 Fourth
avenue, met with a rather serious acci
dent yesterday afternoon, while celeb rat
ing the Fourth quietly at home. He
with his brother Clark, were firing crack
era, and had also been using some pow
der in their celebration, and by an over
sight, a small cup half full of the explo
sive lying near, was ignited by a spark.

sion, striking Mr. Heisel in the face, and
for a time It was thought it had com
pletely blinded him, but luckily he es
caped with no serious damage beyond
having his eyebrows and hair singed very
badly, and filling hia face with powder,
from the effects of which it will take
some time to recover. It was an exceed
ingly fortunate escape for him, indeed
Dr. PTHtouner is the attending physician
A horse belonging in Davenport be
came frightened and dashed across the
picnic grounds, and directly through the
crowd at Andrew's grove, at 10 o'clock
last night. Phil Stemmer, of this city,
wa struck by the horse and knocked
senseless, but no one else was injured,
strange to say. Tbe horse and buggy
wound op at the bottom of the gully both
unharmed, except that the shafts were
twisted somewhat. Stemmer soon after
A little son ot Joseph Burton living in
the lower end of town, had a narrow
escape, being struck on the shoulder by
a bullet from the revolver of some reck
less individual who ought to be in jail
now, but fortunately the bullet did not
penetrate the flesh, glancing off after
making a slight cut in the skin.
Conductor James Simser, of the Rock
Island & Milan road, caught his foot on
the projection of the cattle guard east of
Aiken street and before he could recover
himself fell into the cattle guard, sustain
ing several severe bruises, none of which,
however, are serious. Ches. Carlton is

Henry Bunning, of Moline, attempted
to jump from tbe front platform of car
86 of the Union line on Fourth aves
nue near Twenth third street yesterday af
ternoon and he fell in such a position that
one of the wheels passed over his left leg,
tearing the flesh and spraining the ankle.
He was taken to the police station and
afterward conveyed to Moline in the pa
trol wagon from that city.
J. F. Black, a Quincy aeronaut, aged
twenty-two. met a horrible death at the
Beardstown celebration yesterday. He
had ascended three thousand feet in a hot
air baloon, intending to make a parachute
leap, but the baloon tilted and caught
fire which was communicated to the par
achute before it could be loosened. Both
burned, and the daring young man fell to
the earth, landing in a corn field, feet
down. His legs were driven np into the
trunk, the bones pushed through the
heels and the neck and head down into
the body. The aeronaut's parents wit
nessed the terrible sight.

NOT many tilings are harder than to select presents.
To get something that will be good of its kind, pleasing and
useful, and not too costly, is what we all wish to do, but
don't always succeed in doing.
We store keepers all think we can meet these require
ments; but perhap3 in a cnina store, the things to choose
from make it easier to satisfy oneself than inmost others.
If you intend making birthday, wedding or anniversary
presents, wouldn't it be well to call and see what is here?
I have a great many new things, some expensive, and
some not at all so. Among staples are a new and very neat
brown decoration open stock dinner pattern; something
good enough for every day use, or for better if you don't
use fine china, and in which you can have just what you
want from a tea pot lid (for example) to a full dinner set.
A regular 112 piece set would cost about $14.00. I have
others for less one style for $10.75, decorated in colors.
