the output. The Bardolph concern ia,
however, very anxious to keep up with

IT'S A PLEASANT TRIP.
Reerentlon nnd Enjoynaent at Moder
ate Coat on the Verne Swain.
Are yon in search of a means of af
fording a short respite from work, and
recreation at the same time, a mode of
driving dull care from your mind, or
substituting rest for physical overwork T
Would you like a delightful change at
moderate coat? If so, submit your case
to Capt. John Streckfus, of tbe steamer
Verne Swain, and be will solve it for you
in a most refreshing manner. The wri
ter speaks from an experience such aa
will linger long in pleasant memory.
There is no more reetful and happy way
of taking a short vacation than to run
op to Clinton on the Verne somo after
noon, and either make the round trip or
remain over a day in the pret
ty little city up the river, which
in many ways can teach Rock
Island what is necessary to modern
aspirations to city-hood, such as a paid fire
department. Clinton, like Rock Island
bas paved streets, excellent street
railway accommodations and good hotels,
the Windsor being but a few blocks from
the boat landing. -
The packet, Verne Swain is the fastest
boat on tbe river, and what is better, runs
smooth and easy. Her cabin is hands
somely furnished throughout, and she
bas all the accommodations such as
one would expect to find only on
the larger passenger steamers of the
upper Mississippi. Her wideawake
skipper, Capt. John Streckfus, looks
after every detail himself and those
who entiust themselves to bis care
are pretty apt to fare well. He has an
experienced and capable crew and
no effort is spared to insure comfort,
pleasure and safety to passengers. Tbe
trip take it when the temperature is high
especially is most delightful.

Friday afternoon before he took his har

Tuesday evening. It does not follow nec
essarily that the execution will occur
Wednesday morning. It may be deferred
for another twenty four hours. Hut Mr
Durst on has stated several times since

it was his intention to fix the hour of exe

The fact that the name of Eleoti-i-in

natural that he should he annoyed at the
