The Rock Island Industrial Home asso
ciation has practically concluded nego i
ations for the purchase of the Gordon
property at the corner of Twentieth
street and Fourth avenue. The consil
cration is 5.000 for the lot of 60x130
and Urge brick building, which the asso
ciation thinks ran be utilized with remrd
ehng until the organization has funds ad
equate to erect a new building There is
some dispute as to who shall pay the tax es
but the present owner will likely do tl is,
thog leaving the Home association to de
fray the cost of paving the Twentieth
street and the Fourth avenue sides. 7 be
association will agree to pay the expen
ses of both these improvements. The
association has in its treasury the f 5,(00
necessary to pay for the lot nnd buildi ig,
but has yet to raise tbe necessary funds
to pay for the paving, the alteration of
tbe building, etc. In order to do thl i it
has been decided to hold one of ita rwp

Fifty-three patients have been admitted
tbe past year twenty from Rock Island,
eighteen from Moline, tbe rest from vari
ous parts of the country. Tbere were
seven deaths. Tbere have been fourteen
cases of typhoid "fever, seven from Mo
line. seven from Rock Island . From this
yearly report can be seen what a large
number of patients have been sect to the
hospital. Tbere have been many more
applicants, but for want of room tuy
could not be received. Wben an institu
tion like this is doing such a charitable
work, it seems a disgrace to tail city and
Moline aleo ihtt the hospital mutt be
closed up the 1st of April next as matters
now stand, unless both cities put tbeir
energies and interest to work, furnish
money for the purchase of a lot, (gr
make a donation of a suitable onr) and
erection of a commodious and convenient
building, they will be left without any
place to send their sick and disabled.
Between the two cities, such a hospital
could and ought to be erected this com
ing spring. If a few philanthropic and
enterprising citiz.'Ds would take the lead
in this matter and thereby arouse interest
and enthusiasm, the women would not be
backward in belp:ng the good wo:k
along. As it is, they have done all in
their power by solicitations of money to
support the present hospital, and do not
feel inclined to submit to tbe humiliation
any longer of asking for money as tbev
have the past year and being refused as
tbey have been in many instances out
right, or met with such a cold reception.
and subscriptions grudgingly given. It
is bigb time tbe men of ihe two cities
took an active part in forwarding this
work; tbey should no longer hold back
and leave everything for tbe women to
do. Who will be tbe first to mcva in
this matter? M. C. Hoffman. Sec'y.
FOR SUNDAY REST.

The meeting held In G. A. R. hall at
Davenport Sunday in the interest of Sun
day suspension of business was presided
over by Dr. C. T. Lindley. vice-president
of tbe Tri-City Labor Congress, un
der whose auspices tbe meeting was held.
Tbe Timet says the attendance was large
and much interest was manifested? Mu
sic was furnished by the Mandolin Quar
tette and several zither selections were
given by Prof. John Stohle.
The programme was carried out ss
printed with the exception of tbe "mer
chants' plea for Sunday closing," the
merchant failing to put in an appearance.
but instead Mr. J. B- Danforlh
made an address.
The clerks' plea was by Mr. T. F. La-
Velle, of the new London clothing bouse
in Rock Island. It was an earnest and
eloquent plea and he rt viewed educa
tional matters which demand considerable
attention. The plea of tbe liberal Ger
man was by Mr. Cramer, tbe well known
cabinet maker. It waa an off-hand talk
in German. The physician's plea by Dr.
C. T. Lindley, who paid special stress to
physiological and s.ientiflc reasons why
tbere should be evening rest and rest one
day in seven.
Tbe following resolutions were unan
Raolttd, That we again ask all tbe
clolhlog, boot and shoe and grocery mer
chants to close their places of business at
6:30 p. m., Saturday excepted, thereby
giving tbe clerks an opportunity for self.
improvement, and we also ask that tbey
close on Sunday, thereby giving tbe clerks
a day of rest.
Raolttd, That we moat heartily thank
the merchants who have granted these
bamane measures and hope others will
follow their good example.
It is proposed to push this matter and
meetings will be held at various balls
throughout the cities of Davenport, Rock
Island and Molina, and the next regular
mass meeting will be held in Rock Island.

Tbe sale by Reseiver Haas, of the Rock
Island and Milan road advertised to occur
at the court nouse this morning did not
come off. Mr. Hats got as far along in
the proceedings as to read tbe notice of
sale to a small assemblage and to ask for
bids, but none being forthcoming he ad
journed the sale until this afternoon at
4 o'clock. Among tbe prospective bid
ders were Messrs. Landerbach and Adams
of Chicago. Tbey are desirious of pur
chasing tbe road independent of the Chi
cago syndicate, owning the other line in
tbe tri-cities, but wish to operate i. in
connection with the same. It Is under
stood that a local stockholder is alo
ready to bid high for tbe road when the
Tbe Rock Island & Milan road was
built in 1883 at a cost nf $40,000, that
being the capital stock of tbe
company. Tbe late Bailey Daven
port was the first president nf tbe
company, a position he held up to
the time of his death. Tbe road after.
ward absorbed $45,000 in addition to tbe
amount of the original investment.
Mr. E. n. Guyer was the first
secretary of tbe company, Mr. E.
W. Hurst afterward succeeding to the
position on Mr. Guyer's .resignation and
retaining it until the reorganization of
the company a few months ago, when
Msj. II. C. Connelly was elected presi
dent and J. M. Buford, secretary. At
the May term of the circuit court. Mr.
Fred Hasa waa appointed receiver of the
company by Judge Glenn. Tbe cum-
paoy has seven miles of track, two
motors and a dozen cars. Mr. Daven
port originally bad but 90 shares of stock
in the road, but at tbe time of h!a death
he owned 317 out of the 400.
Tbe road if properly managed, especial
ly if run In connection with t'le rest of
the tri-city sjstem, would no doubt prove
a valuable investment.
This morning before tbe opening of
the sal?, Richard Mansill transferred to
Wm Jackson tbe right and title io a
piece of land through which the road
passes near tbe watch tower, which will
enable the purchaser to have an unob
structed title to the entire right of way

borhood whar we've all pot room.
" -I thould think that you would have
found nime tronble in scdecting names
for all of your children.'
I didn't, thouiii. I know that a
great many folks hare had trouble in
that war, an' I waa determined to steer
cl'ar nv it, so I 'dopted a role, an when
the fust chile waa horn we called him
One, The next was named Two, the
next Three, an so on. W'y, it worked
like a charm, an' we didn't have a bit
uv trouhlo. I would advise ever'boOy
to 'dot the rule. One is married to a
sorter slouch nv a woman, an' lives
down yan on the branch. Two is a boas
trader. All the rest air at borne. Three
tbar. turning to a blushing girl. ii old
anuff to git married. Eight, doot stan'
so clot to tbe fire, you'll senrth rer
britches. Mar, ruake Nine an Eleven
behave tharselvea. Twelve, go on now
an' rock the cradle, far don't voa hear
