The Union bas learned from a myster
ious source that the sundry civil service
appopriation bill "passed the senate 00
Friday afternoon," an act graciously per
formed by the higest law making body in
the land, we mast construe, for the sole
purpose of giving Congressman Gest a
little boomlet, for the Union very modest
ly says that it "contains most of the ap
propriations that Congressman Gest has
labored to secure for this locality." It
cites the $35,000 for the buildrntr of the
viaduct, the $500,000 for the Hennepin
canal, the regular appropriations for the
work at Rock Island Arsenal, all of which
it claims are due to Congressman Cast's
active work, whereas if troth unbiased
and unwarped were permitted to speak
through the columns of the Union,
it would credit the work of Fred
Has9, president of the Rock Isl
and Improvement association, with
the success thus far attained of
the viaduct measure; Congressman
Henderson with the promised victory for
the Hennepin canal, and the arsenal ap
propriations would have been made had
Kock Island had no congressman at
Washington whatever. But the Union
persists that all these "appropriations
have been secured by our congressman
who is entitled to the regard aud consid
eration of the people for much bard and
difficult work faithfully, persistently and
successfully pursued. Add to this the

Gest really ought to have his influent
tial henchman Bops Wells, call a bait on
the Union'i vargarles, and therefore save
it and him from longer being the laugh
ing stock of the community. The public
is too well aware of what Gest bas
not done, his only conspicuous act
being bis opposition to the making
of the Rock Island bridges free
to freight between the tnree cities,
and this the Union carefully fails
to note, of course. As the Union inad
vertently confesses in its closing lines Mr
Gest must yet do something more than he
has before "we get some little idea of
the great practical value of a working

five bright, intelligent trad highly elastic
ostriches. Mr. Root contemplates tak

charging an admission price, of course,

A good horse has no business with an
ostrich. While a horse is considering
where he will pot his hind feet, so as not
to cork himself, the ostrich with a whole
arm movement steps off at the rate of
eighteen feet per step with no danger to
her extra limbs. The ostrich also has
her limbs reasonably far apart, and
therefore does not interfere.
Abou Ben Pangborn, of Watermelon
township, uongo county, Had a young
filly ostrich which wanted to sit in the
summer of '79, and he did not wish to
hare her do so, as he had sold the setting
of eggs to a Sabbath Bchool for Easter.
So he tied her by the hind leg at the
kraal of a neighbor, 28 miles away. The
chain was attached to her limb jtust be
low the calf of the limb, the other end
being ffwtened to the root of a bam-
burrowallispus tree which grew near the

to occupy a sedentary position.
mat was tne way with, tins yonng
thing. Her name was Patience. She
had already sat several weeks on a pine
apple cheese, and, aside from giving it a
rich home flavor, she could not detect
any progress toward hatching out a
wholesale grocery store.
So one day a great longing to get back
to ner own nest sj miles away came
over her. She lost control of herself.
tier mot ner nature asserted itself in a
brief ejaculation snch as the female os
trich makes when suddenly confronted
by a great mental problem. In her
mind's eye she saw those Sabbath school
children blowing the interior out of her
large and juicy handiwork, and then dec
orating the exterior with lilies, etc., etc.,
and tying riblxms to them, and Patienc
arose and girded up her loins and gave a
great kick that busted the perphirey of
the kraal and tore down the bamburro
wallispns tree, and with the chain and a
prong of the tree root, together weighing
thirty-seven poufids, she trotted across
to her home, by actual computation, in
sixteen minutes and twenty-two seconds,
though Abou Ben Pangborn made it a
little short of that with his new stop
sand gla-ss. Patience tints made a rec
ord of at least a mile in. thirty-three sec
onds, carrying thirty-seven pounds at
tached to tbe calf of her limb.
Mr. Root says that be can reduce this
record greatly, and has done so already
in several instances. He has five birds
now in hand, named and described as
Timbnctoo, a large ashes of roses bird,
over ten feet high, who paces without
urging at thirty-seven on an empty
stomach. Give him a little hot lunch
out of tho cellar of a recently burned
hardware store and he can make it in
twenty-nine, so Mr. Root says. Timbuc
too has a powerful digestion and a tape
worm which coaxes ship chandlery and
railroad rolling stock. It will pay to get
your tips from Tinibuctoo.
Overgrown Williams is a large, soiled
white gelding, with no record as yet,
though he has taken no dnst from any
other bird in the United States, barring
those on Mr. Root's ranch. He is yonng
yet and awkward. He also shies some,
and when he does so is apt to step out
from under his rider, leaving him, in a
comatose state. He weighs 287 pounds,
and hopes to do even better than that as
he fills out by another spring.
T. Do Witt Talmage is a pearl gray
ostrich of rather slendsr build, who has
always led an upright life, or at least, if
not, he has never allowed anybody to
get on to it, as Mr. Root says. . De Witt
makes good t ime and acts as hia own
jockey. The Duke of Council Bluffs says
this bird is the shrewdest one he has ever
seen. He can throw a race with won
derful ease, and in a style that would
tickle Satan almost to death.
Lily Dale is a large black ostrich from
the Soudan'. She ia twenty-seven handc
l::;h and easily eats out of a second story
window. She is not particular whose
window it is, eyether. Lily is a broad
shouldered brunette and has a record,
but it is not a very good one. It was
made in Africa, before aho came here,
and Mr. ' Root would rather not have
anything said about it. She la very
cross while sitting, and Mr. Root is
short two hired men this summer on
that account They are both buried in
the same grave. An unknown bird
fancier who came -to see the ranch, in
May approached too close to the aviary,
and Lily, who was at that time sitting
on a tin spriukler and endeavoring, by
putting her mind on it, to hatch out a
spring freshet, arose and kicked off the
gentleman's silk hat.
Also hia head,

sometimes returning the hand when he
gets through with it. He has very beau
tiful corn colored plumes and does not
sing while moulting.. Especially Oleaon
and Lily Dale will be driven by a small
colored lad. Mr. Root says they will be
harnessed to a two wheeled vehicle
weighing thirty -seven and a half pounds,
the darky weighing sixty pounds, and
will make four miles straightway and
return in leas than nineteen minutes.
The novelty of these races will easily
advertise them and the expense will be
small. Local entertainment bureaus
are requested to communicate with Mr.
Root, who will give rates of percentage
on which he will play. A good mile
track, properly inclosed, will be all that
is necessary when he goes on the road.
Different colored ribbons will mark the
favorites, and naturally much money
will change hands.
The study of the ostrich is filled with
interest to the thinking mind. Minds
not used for thinking purposes, however,
will find little to interest thertt in the
ostrich. One odd feature about this
bird is tho custom common to the female
of laying several extra eggs outside the
nest for the young to eat as soon as they
are hatched. This is only true, how
ever, of the birds who inhabit Syria,
Palestine and Egypt, as they are not
strictly tropical. In the tropical lati
tudes, of course, the ostrich does not sit
on her eggs, but deposits them in a sand
pile, and with a degree of indolent faith
worthy of a mother who is a corporal in
the Salvation Army she turns them over
to an all wise providence to hatch ont,
while she goes forth seeking ont other
people's children in order that she may
Little boys should never rob the nests
of these birds unless they are in readiness
to face an infuriated God. Once there
was a little boy living about eighteen
miles southwest of Timbnctoo whoee
name was Gooloo Goolison. He did not
know what was right and what was
wrong. He had a little rudimentary con
science, but it did not annoy him at alL
A little gospel had entered the family
years ago, bnt Gooloo was too young to
get much of it, as he had to eat at the
second table, and there was very little
left after the old folks got through. So
Gooloo did not know that it was wrong
to rob an ostrich nest and substitute a
6cooped out watermelon.
But he does now.
Whither he bas went people know al
most everything. Especially they know
that to fool the mamma bird with a
warm watermelon rind is noray to live.
The ostrich is not a brainy bird. Even

being a power is generally regarded as a
calamity, the natives, when they want

WE BAD a splendid trip. Everything went off as smoothly as though we had
traveled together all our lives, but still it is awfully nice to be in our own house and
really housekeeping at last.
Tou know papa gave me $25 to buy a set of dishes with; you never could
imagine how Tar I have made that money go. We always thought, yon know, that
Davenport was a better place to buy than here at home, and so I thought I would
just stop a minute as I passed Loosley's crockery store on my way to the ferry, and
get a few prices; buf when I got in. I saw so many things I liked, that I ended by
getting all I wanted right there. It makes an awful long list, but I'm going to tell
you what I got for that $25.
In the first place Mr. Loosley showed me what be called an open stock pattern
that means you know, the dishes that you can buy anything jou want of; the
color is something between a blue and green he called it celeste. You can see it
when you come, for I bought just what I wanted from It, and'got it all for $9.50,
Then I got a neat decorated chamber set, twelve pieces with a slop jar, for $4.50;
a pretty red water set, six tumblers and tray, for $1.25; a dozen table tumblers
(there's a splendid lot to choose from) and jelly classes and fruit jars; these cost
I1.S5. For a reading lamp I chose a pretty center draft lamp, shade and vase de
corated to match, $3 00 and a lovely hanging lamp for $5.00. That finished up my
money; bnt John came in just then, and bought a set of silver knives and forks and
spoons, Roger's plate.
Of course I saw these things ia more expensive patterns, but you will agree with
me, when 70U see what I've got, that Loosley's is just the place for people who
want good things at reasonable prices.
