The following correspondence received
daring the past week is hereby answered
in a brief bat stiocinct manner: '"

Inland, and asks to know if the inland
has a society for the prevention of cru
elty to animals.
It has, Mrs. Skinner-McPhelim, it has.
It is one of the most pungent and vocif
erous societies for the prevention of
good that we have, according to reports.
Agents of the organization make it very
hot for people who own animals, if I am
torrectly informed in the matter, and I
advise you, if you hope to spend the
heated term on Staten Island, to leave
your carriage horses and other heir
looms at the flat, where they will not
be disturbed. Owners here have been
stopped on the street, arrested and fined,
in fact, for not shoeing their horses,
while as a matter of fact they were too
poor to even shoe their children. Mis
guided philanthropy is as injurious to
the public welfare as the live rat caught,
kerosenea ana ignitea by a farmer in
northern Vermont last season. He drove
away all the other rats, also the farmer
and his family, by burning down the
whole ranch. In his nice warm little
room at the poorhouse this summer the
farmer says to his wife as he inserts an
other little titbit of mush and molasses
among his whiskers, "The overzealous

The Society FTfe Prevention of
Cruelty to AnimiM arrested a widow
woman on the highway for tying to
gether the hind limbs of a female hog,
or swinette, which was being transport
ed from one point to another. Those
who have handled hogs know that it is
absolutely necessary to tie their legs if
they are conveyed by wagon, or they
will jump out. The society removed the
cords, whereupon the hogine leapt out
of the wagon and broke her leg. Pre
vention people not only sometimes do
not frequently know how to handle
hogs, but also they do not know how to
prevent cruelty. I could name some
more of the instances reported, but these
will suffice to show you that the society
is flourishing, several of the agents do
ing a very thrifty business who have al
ways failed at everything else in life.
The following note comes from a Tro
jan who has suffered otherwise:
Troy, July 10, 189a
Mr. Bnx Nye: Kindly give us your experiences,
at and opinion of a clam bake, one of the most
ridiculous Institutions of toe United States. Very
One Who Was Thoroughly Disocbted at On
Clam bakes are not always unsuccess
ful. Even if they are unsuccessful from
your own point of view they might not
be from the standpoint of the man who
prepares them. I was one of a small
party of plain American citizens who
bought out a clam kiln and colic works
last season at Long Branch. I had been
accustomed to life among the lowly in
years past, having been born of poor but
extremely brainy parents. I had also
lived in the wild and woolly west, where
clams and other specimens of insect life
are regarded with distrust. There you
can buy, or could at the time I lived
there, a hind i of elk for $1.50, hang
It in your wood shed and feed a
good sized family on it for a week. So
I said to a friend or two: "Here is a
natural product of the soil, the cheapest
and commonest of God's impervious
fauna, the low browed and weak minded
clam. We will get . some one to bake
tome for us, then we will eat a water
melon and play that we are amenable to
do law, but that we are free and unfet
tered, and as careless of human life as a
steam heating company or a young phy
sician. We ordered no wine, but just
clams and watermelon.
Another party from New York also
ordered a clam bake at the same time,
so that the same kiln dried all the clams.
In baking clams you heat a lot of stones
in a hot fire, throw them in a hole along
with your clams, green corn, ground
feed, etc., etc. You then cover up the
mass, and go away fishing or pitching
horse shoes till you smell something.
That is the clams. You then borrow a
six-tine pitchfork, such as is used by our
best livery stable people, and fork out
your clams and green corn, serving hot
Guests will wait on themselves. After
the clams are served you load a large
, shotgun with hot fence nails and collect
I ate the left lobe of three underdone
Waterbury clunis, an ear of hot seed
corn and a slice of soured and pessimistic
watermelon. My bill was $23 that is
exclusive of nurses and medical attend
ance. I do not care for clams, anyway. I
cannot come up with a clam. I some
times feel that I would like to, but I can
not. Neither can my boots.
I was quite ill after I ate these clams,
having thrown away the most digestible
part, viz., the shell, and foolishly eaten
the clam. On the steamer coming home
many people who had been greatly dis
appointed all day in the matter of enjoy
ment came up on deck, watched my gyra
tions a few moments, and went home
peaceful and contented. At the wharf,
some of those who had been down to
Manhattan Beach to see Pain's "Siege of
Vera Cruz," and were bitterly disap
pointed, came to where I was gnawing
an old anchor and moaning with an in
ward pain, and after seeing me suffering
went home stating that they had more
than got their money back.
The New England clam bake costs less
money, but is almost equally fatal to me.
If you hear of my eating another clam
bake you can safely say to yourself that
when I did it I was under the . influence
of liquor. Some siren with bleached hair
and merry ogling eye may meet me on
thejbeachand drug me, and feed me a
atsar. -odji- -war tsjr
clam while singing .to me some sweet, j
tad song, but she will have to be better
looking than the average fish ball siren
of story. "
Mrs. Erstwhile Timberlake. of Pon
gee, Neb., asks: "What .shall I do to re
gain my influence over my husband? He
gave me his nana in marriage two years
ago come next frost, and if ever a man
teemed to just doat on any one he doated
on me. That s about all be did all that
winter in fact, and our victuals got pret
ty low by spring. Then I spoke harshly
to him, and he started for hell via the
Little Pansy Blossom saloon on Prunella
street. I have tried every way to win
him back, such aa he is, and have went
out f my way to make friends write him
more than onct. Will yon not come to
my succor?" :
If you Cannot bring him here of course.
Mrs. Timberlake, I will have to come to
your sucker and speak of him plainly as
between man and man. I hope that you
kave treated him well on the start and
given him a fair show. I will take it
for granted that you have. - If so, now
we must resort to more turgid means. I
will not tell you, however, what to do. I
will only tell yon what I knew to be
done once in a similar cose, and you can
think it over, Mrs. Timberlake, and feel
perfectly free to help yourself to it if it
should strike you favorably: .
Mrs. Delay Oleson, of Norridgewock,
Me., had a husband whom she dearly
loved, for he was a fine, manly looking
fellow, standing eighteen hands high, and
young, too. He fell a victim to prohibi
tion in Maine and became a hard drink
er. He had never cared to drink till he
found that it was against tho law, and
so then he couldn't somehow get it out
of his mind. Prohibition seemed to con
stantly remind him that he could not
take a drink. So he fell. It occurred
at Norridgewock, and could have been
distinctly heard for a mile or more. Hi
wife wept a great deal at first, but was
not . unkind to him. She spoke to him
gently and lovingly, and he promised to
do better, but he was weak, and the pro
hibition law kind of gravelled him, as
one writer has it. So he fell some more.
Mrs. Oleson was a good, sensible little
woman, who would not Bit calmly on the
front stoop and let defeat follow upon
tne Heels or disaster without mating a
She told Delay that she would try him
once more, and if ho failed her she would
surely not overlook it as she had before.
For a long time he turned his back on the
devil's elixir and worked steadily at his
trade, which was painting, graining and
kalsomining, also breaking colts, gents"
J fine neckwear and justice of the peace.
Later on, however, he fell once more,
and came home in a spiral manner,
smelling of prohibition whisky, which is
also used for etching on glass. She said
nothing to him. bat undressed him and
put him to bed as usual. This is a pleas
ing ta.sk. She laid him on the couch,
and then gathering up the edges of the
two home made linen sheets she sewed
up Delay Oleson therein by means of a
Btout ball of twine and an upholsterer's
needle. He asked for more air, but she
said what o needed was not bo much
air as it was a littlo course or massage
treatment, bo she got a new whip from
the bam, such as is used by Mr. Legree
in beating ont the brains of Uncle Tom
in that truly good play, and she knocked
the dust out of Delay Oleson till you
could hear her all over that block.
He spoke to her about not doing it any
more, but she said she could not yield to
outside influence. She must be her own
Judge regarding the best time to stop.
So she ate a little bread and butter, put
a new snapper on the whip and went at
COMING HOME FKOM THK CLAM BAKE.
it again. People passing the house dur
ing the night heard Delay sobbing anon,
and between his sobs they could hear the
whip crack around his various cornices
and fretwork. Finally the weary wife
let him out, and fixing a bed for him on
the floor she turned ont the cat and
went to lied. She never had to do so
again. Delay after that was another
man. He removed to Kentucky, where
he would not have the same temptations
that were afforded him in Maine, and be
came the father of nine children, all of
whom were born with what resembled a
large welt across the person.
I do not say to yon, Mrs. Timberlake.
to do this way with Erstwhile, for it is a
severe method, and he might not be
drunk enough so that you could sew
him up, and he might possibly reverse
the programme, but I tell you of this
case so you can't say I ignore your wail.
A Card to tne Public.
Our attention has been called to the
circulation of rumors on the street, charg
ing us with combining with dealers in a
certain line of goods to keep out compe
iiuon by refusing to rent our stores on
second avenue to any one wanting to en
gage in their line of business. We pubs
llcly deny the charge, it being false in
every particular. We also deny tbe
charge that any party or parties are now
or nave been paying us rent to keep our
stores closed. . The change of grade and
paving of Second avenue made it neces
sary for us to remodel the old Dart a hall
building. Tbe second floor Is a very
large, fine room, suitable for lodge or as
sembly purposes. Tbe stores on the first
floor show for themselves. We offer the
whole building or any. part of it, to any
one wanting to rent for any reputable
business, and will try to meet his views
as to rental, fixtures, etc. We have as
much interest as any concern can possi
bly have in the growth and prosperity of
the city and most certainly would not do
anything detrimental to our interests and
those of tbe city of Rock Island. Very
respectfully,' Henry Darts' Sons.

Mrs. Adam Alday, the crippled, de
mented Moline worann. about whom so
much has been writlt n and said in con
nrction with her husband's ill treatment
and abu9t, is f ee at last from earthly
tortures and persecutions. She is dead.
It will be remembered that after she bad
spent some time at the Rock Island coun
ty poor farm, and had , been
released through friends who were
caring for her, her husband kid
napped her a few months ago
and took her away from Mo
line. L. S. O'Ne II had been ap
pointed by the court t er conservator, and
was having Mrs. Aldt y boarded in West
Moline, when Alday drove up to the door
in a carriage, carried tbe woman out on
some pretense, placed her in the convey
ance and drove away. That was the last
seen of ber. Tbe erurt ordered his ar
rest for contempt. An indictment is now
banging over bim, but he has never been
found. It was presumed that he went to
Minnesota. Tbe fc (lowing from the
Jackson Republic, of Jackson, Minn .will

Xot a Ha Idea.
Tbe Moline Republictn Is advancing tbe
Idea of tbe city of Moline establishing an
artesian well from which the city will get
its water supply for domestic use. Tbe
That an artesian wel. 8 ioch bore could
be sunk near the water works stratum be
low tbe Pottsdam sandstone, at a depth
of 1,035 feet. This would cost about
$3,0(10. and it is estimated would supply
40 barrels of water a minute. This
would be largely in excess of tbe amount
used during the past month, when we had
the greatest consumption of water since
the waterworks ! was tstablished and by
turning it into the set ling basin at tbe
water works it would supply all water
needed for domestic pt rposes and enable
tbe engineer to shut oil tbe water supplt
from tbe river except liossihlv in time of
a fire. On such occasions the value con
necting with tbe river could be opened
to give an adequate sup ply, and any sedi
ment deposited in tbe pipes during sucb
times could be washei out by flushing
tbe mains after the fire was extinguished.
Tne Greatest Good to the Greatest Numbir
It has been acknowlei that thoughtful
men and women derive great benefit from
the practical experience of others. This
is certainly true as people of nice tastes
battling with a limited income must pos
sess a strong vein of practical common
sense, which, in cases of emergency
predominates, and insmes a conservatism
of action in providing for those of tbeir
own household. It is ia such homes, and
among this class of people, we discover
that which results in "the greatest good
to the greatest number,' viz : Dr.
Humphrey's Manual and Fami
ly Specifics.! 'There being no

There is only one way to enre deafness,

Deafness is caused by an inflamed con

you have a rumbling sound or imperfect

deafness is tbe result, and unless the in
flammation can be tat en out and this
