THE KOCK ISLAND AllGUS, THUItSDA AUGUST 14, 1890
WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN.
A Neasationa.1 Aeconnt That HlKht
Have Appeared la alfrS(w
paper Trials of the Proof Reader.
There ia no newspaper published, into
the types of which an error does not at
one time or another creep. These blun
ders are sometimes silly and laugh-pro-Yoking,
and again aggravating and hair
raising. Misprints and misstatements
cm not be chargeable to anyone in par
ticular in a newspaper's employ. They
are bound to get there once in a while
despite the utmost care on the part of the
e litor, printer and proof-reader. They
are accidents, such as will happen in
every field of life, and are unavoidable.
The reading public, however, that criti
cizes and ridicules the typographical mis
takes of a newspaper wilt never know the
pains that are taken day in and day out
to avoid those errors and the rainy com
plications that have to be overcome to
insure entire accuracy in every detail. It
is difficult to conceive how such a jumble
of stuff could be gotten together in a
composing; room as that which follows,
yet it serves to show what niij;iit appear
were not the greatest of care exercised
In a certain western newspaper office
the gentleman whose business it is to
record the fluctuations of the live stock
market sits across from the young man
to whose lot it falls to report wedding
ceremonies. Both are graphic writers
and enjoy that latitude of expression
characteristic of western journalism.
Both use the same kind of paper, and
their penmanship is not unlike. Not
long ago the wedding reporter was
suddenly called out of the office and left
in the middle of the table several sheets
of paper on which was a description of a
fashionable wedding. These sheets .were
gathered tip by the live stock writer when
lie finished his report, and the two stories
became mixed. This is what the zealous
care of a proof reader, later in the even
Ing saved from renchitig the public eye;
"The church was elaborately decorated
with holly and evergreen, anil the aliar
was hidden in a wealth of flowers. Out
of the recesses rose rare tropical plants,
and from the ceiling hung fifteen western
veals, which at this time of the year are
scarce and correspondingly dear at (5 and
8cptT pound. There was also an ac
live demand for choice lambs, and farm

silk, a creation of Worth's, with pearl
"Then came the maid of honor, the
cousin of the bride. Miss Henrietta
Blower, of Chicago, wearing a dress of
white tulle, with diamond ornaments.and
she was followed by a small bunch of
Montana sheep, which bleated most
piteonsly as they were driven on hoard
and shipped to the winter hotels in Ber

Mr. Herr'M Ail vanrr merit.
The Galesburg Register has the follow
ing concerning the resignation of !Supt.
E. M. Ilerr, of the Galesburg division of
tbeC.,B.& Q., and formerly superin
tendent of the Hock Islaud & St. Louis
division, to accept the position of master
mechanic of the C, M. fc St. P.:
It seems that Mr. Brr, superintendent
of motive power of that company, has
been after Mr. Herr three or four times,
and it was only until recently that he
consented to go. The C, B. fc Q. tried
hard to retain him here, regarding him as
one of the most promising young railrond
men in the country. His new position
is but a step to something higher when
the time comes. Mr. ilerr has had
an eventful experience as a railroader.
He started in out in Colorado when but
14 years of age, and had experience as
station agent and as one of a railroad
surveying party. Thirsting for a better
education, such as Would he of service
to him in his calling, he went to Yale
college and took the full scientific course
of live years. To further fit
himself he worked subsequently in
the machine shops of the Pennsyl
vania road at Altooi.a, Pa. From
there he went to Milwaukee, where he
entered the employ of the C, M. & St.
P., and where his worth was realized.
After a year's service he was tendered a
more lucrative place by the C, B. & Q.
For this company he baa been superin
tendent of telegraphy, in which capacity
he effected the saving of a large sum to
the company and perfected a compact
with the Western Union, from which the
company realizes a goodly revenue. He
came here from Beardstown late in Jans
uary to become superintendent of the
Galesburg division. Mr. Ilerr is only
about thirty years old, and bis record is
deemed remarkable. He regrets to leave
Galesburg and this regret is shared by the
citizens. It Is said that he is qualified to
rill any position in railroading.

The Moline W. C. T. U. is greatly agi
tated over the location of the proposed
brewery in that city, as the following
resolutions adopted at a meeting Tuesday
Wiikueas, With great surprise and
horror we saw in a recent daily paper the
fact stated that a brewery is to be built
in our midst; therefore be it
llemlved, That, as a Woman's Chris
tian union, realizing that instead of being
of material benefit it will be a powerful
means of causing wretchedness, misery
and death, we do most solemnly protest
against it, and condemn, with a right
eous indignation, those, who, by taking
stock, leasing ground, or in any way en
couraging by pen or voice, this business
that means destruction to our children,
our city and families.
In yesterday's papers was published a
resolution of the school board in regard
to the slow progress of the new school
building. We, the contractors, have nev
er questioned the right of the school
board to enforce the clause of the con
tract in regard to forfeiture, but we do
object to the publication of the same
before forfeit is made, and when the time
comes we propose to show where the
blame is to be placed.

To the Chairman and Members of the Modern
Woodmen of America in Convention Assembled
Your committee on resolutions have
had a continuous session of three hours
and have discussed freely and, as they
believe, fairly and impartially the resolu

the order they have adopted the follow

tion : .
Resolved, First, That the neighbors of
the Modern Woodmen or America; in
convention assembled, declare their un
qualified disapproval of the action of
those members who are responsible for
the proceedings of injunction by which a
properly called special session has been
defeated and a vast amount of expense
and labor unnecessarily sacrificed.
Second, That we request the head
council to use every effort to have' the
Tuthill injunction dissolved as soon us
Third. That it is the sense of this
meeting that the original basis of repre

meeting of the head camp.
Fourth. That it is the sense of this
convention: That at the head camp meet'

grand head camp should he organized by
the delegates in attendance, and that

their funds. That Illinois may retain the
present charter, adapting it for its juris

proper to make, and that contiguous
states having less than 4. (MX) members
should be grouped together in one or
more jurisdictions as their aggregate
membership miy suggest.
Fifth That we earnestly recommend
all neighbors to pay their assessments
promptly and thus sustain the credit of
our beloved order and title it over th
temporary dinlculiies which at present
It was derided that the head camp

W hile so much is heing said upon the

in 1788 congress established our currency

adopt a bi-metalic system, using both gob

value should be 374 grains of pure silver
or 412 grains standard silver, and that
25.8 grains standard gold should be de

not a sufficiency of money in circulation
and if f 50 per capita is about the riL'ht
amount to have, why cannot our legisla

relief to agriculture and consequently to
all legitimate business enterprise.

There was n passive, far away look in
his watery eyo as he sat on tho pile of
lumber and looked toward tho lower

A Card to tb 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
tition by refusing to rent our stores on
Second avenue to any one wanting to en
gage in their line of business. We pub
licly deny the charge, it being false in
every particular. We also deny the
charge that any party or parties are now
or have 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's ball
building. The - second floor Is a very
large, fine room, suitable for lodge or as
sembly purposes. The stores on the first
floor bIiow 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 the city of Rock Island. Very
respectfully. Hknrv Dabts' Sons.
