nis constant advisor in all his business

much of the credit for bis financial suc

dence be had in her.
She was a close reader of history and of
the current events of our times. There
were few indeed, if any, in this vicinity,
better posted in the affairs of our country
than Mrs. Wbeelock. It was doubtless
because of her reading habit, and her de
sire that all should have the same privil
eges, that Moline hss a free pub lie library
today. For it was sbe who conceived the
idea of furnishing to this city a public
library, and it was on her suggestion and
at her solicitation that her husband was
induced to join her in presenting to Mo
