Mrs. V. S. Knowlton Summoned to
Her Long Home.
A Death That Hsn Canned Ventral
Hrlt fin Rork Island The
The news of the serious illness of Mrs.
W. S. Knowlton appearing in last night's
Argus, had the effect of a general shock
to the community wherein the lady has
been known and loyed from childhood,
and the fears then aw&kened were realized
at 12:20 this morning when the fatal sum
mons came. Though Mrs. Knowltoa
had been ill for a wetk, having contracted
a severe cold in attending a reception a
week apo last night which led to pneu
monia, and it in turn culminating in peri
tonitis with which she was attacked
Sunday, her condition was not re
garded as serions until yesterday when
the attending physician, Dr. Q. L. Eyster,
called Dr. Calvin Truesdale into consul
tation. It was then discovered that the
most alarming symptoms had developed
and the gravest apprehensions were at
once entertained. During part of the
afternoon Mrs. Knowlton was uncon
scious, but towards evening she recovered
and called her family about her To her
husband, children and brothers Bhe ex
pressed a consciousness of death's ap
proach and her resignation to the will of
her Maker. Conscious to the last, she
passed away surrounded by those who
were dearest to her on earth.
Mis. Knowlton was the only daughter
of the late Isaac Negus, her maiden
name being Annie Stewart Negus. She
was born in R3ck l9lani 37 years ago
last Saturday, was raised here and mar
ried Mr. Knowlton 15 years ago. With
the sorrow-stricken husband are left two
children. James W. and Grace, and two
brothers, C. W. Negus and W. O Ne
gus, both of this city.
Mrs. Knowlton was a womin who de
lighted in deeds of charity and benevo
lence, was of a most kind hearted and
gentle disposition, and there is sorrow in
many a Rock Island horns over her
death. She was a consistent member of
the Central Presbyterian church, in the
congregation of which her loss will be
The funeral will be held from the fam
ily home, 1229 Second avenue, at 2
o'clock Saturday afternoon.
AN AFFLICTED FAMILY.
Mrs. John Garvin and sister arrived
this morning from Nauvoo with the re
mains of their mother, Mrs. Miles Ram-
burger, who died there on the 24th. of
the prevailing lnfluenz. The funeral
occurs from St. Joseph's" church at 9
o'clock tomorrow morning. She leaves
with her husband 11 children, who in ad
dition to the loss of a loving and deyoted
mother, are called upon to bear the fur
ther affliction of having their father, to
gether with two of their own number, sis
ter and brother, lying at the point of
death with the same disease at Nauvoo.
Facts that are known to many and
should be known to many more and that
is that Clemann and Salzmann, the old
and reliable furniture and carpet dealers,
have the largest and finest stock of car
pets and furniture in this vicinity. They
also have the most convenient sto:e, hav
ing a ground space 80x150, besides the
upper stories and ware rooms that are all
filled to everflowing with goods of the
most desirable styles. In the epcious
carpet room this firm are showing over
four hundred rolls of the choicest car
pets, both in style and quality, to be
found in the market, and far aheai of
any competition. So large is their trade
that every few days a fresh carload of
bedroom suites is received in all sorts of
woods and all clear lumber and tu e
very best workmanship. Now it
is only natural to suppose
that this firm buying in as large quanti
ties as they do, are enabled to command
lower prices than smaller dealers. An
other policy they long ago adopted was
to avail themselves of any discount al
lowed by the manufacturers. Now this
matter of discount figures up to a good
many hundred dollars every year with a
firm that does as large a business as
Clemnann & Salzmann do. When you
come to figure up the discounts they are
allowed for cash and purchasing in such
large quantities, it is evident to anvonc
that their prices cannot be duplicated by
smaller dealers. Now they want all in
tending buyers to ponder over this thing
in their miuds. Call and examine their
stock, get their prices and become con
vinced of the truth of their statement of

The grip, or ioflueczi is getting in its
work in Rock Island pretty effectually,
and nearly every other person one meets
on the street is going to cr has jait come
from a doctor's office or drng store where
he got a dose of something to aid, or
rather to check, las disease. In Chicago
it prevails to euc'i an extent as to seri
ously interfere wi;h business. The Tri
There has been more illness amng the
Chicago hotel men and taeir guests dur
ing the last two weeks than ever before
known. Fifteen days ago the grip began
to creep into the hosulnes and last week
at four of the bit bonis fully one third
of the guests were ill. The managers
and clerks did not escape. Some of the
guests upon learr ing that they would be
confined to their beds for sometime, were
sent at their reqnest to the county and
and other city hospitals. At the county
institution the ptlients were compelled
to accept accommodations on the floor,
as all the cots fcave been occupied for
sometime. Dr. McNamara. of the hospi
tal staff, who treats most of the
grip patients in the big wards,
was at the Leland hotel yesterday visiting
one of the sick guests. The doctor said
forty persons suffering with 'he grip were
admitted to the hospital yesterday, and
forty-seven the dity previous. ''The grip
has caused the pn-sent over-crowded con
dition of the hosriul," said Dr. McNa
mara, "and if it continues to attack the
people of Chicago and the travelers as
vigorously as durog :be last two weeks,
we 8hll be complitd to place cots in the
hallways as well as on the floor, I am
afraid. About thirty per cent of the
gTip cases prove fatal." But tbe grip is
not confined to the hotels. It does not
appear to be a respecter of persons. The
residents of Deartorn avenue and the ten
ants of Canal street alike suffer from its
ravages. There is scarcely a boarding
house in the city, it is said, but has from
one to three or four persons laid up with
the grip. anJ factories and stores are
working sno. t of Itlp because of its pre
valence among the employes. Tbe hos
pitals are crowded and the doctors are
kept busy night and day. At the county
hospital yesterday almost fifty persons
suffering from the grip applied for ad
mission. The warden is considerably
worried as to what he will do for room
if tue applications for admission con
tinue at the present rate. Superin
tendent Crawford, of the west side
street car sys'em. said that 500 of his
men were laid off with the epidemic, and
that he was badly handicapped for help.
Chief of Police Marsh has it, and Assis
tant Superint-jnier t Brennan has jut re
ported for duty after a week's attack
The fire department is thort about 50
men on account of the scourge. Many
of the banks and commission houses at
the stock yards are ruuing on a short al
lowance of clerks and book-keepers.
Forty-six out of 141 mail crriers and of
33 clerks in the postorBce eight are in bed
with the grip. Ore in five of J. V. Far
well & Co's employes are suffering from
the disease, while two per cent of the em
ployes in tbe wholesale and three per cent
in the retail department of J. II. Walk
er & Co's dry goods store have it. In
the wholesale house of Marshall. Field
& Co., five per cent of the help are af
flicted. The world's fair people have been havi
ing a little more th in their share. Among

Although threatened with tbe direst
vengeance if he persists in keeping on the
track. Alderman S hroeder declares he is
not afraid of being run over by the Mcs
Conochie lumber wagon. Numerous
McConochie representatives have been to
Schroeder and imp rtun d him to with
draw in the interest of harmony, and tbe
chairman of the city committee paid him
two visitB yesterday with the same object
in view. Schroeder can't see it in that
light, and says if tte McConochieitcs are
so anxious for harmony, why doesn't the
mayor simplify matters by getting out of
the way himself. Neither can Schroeder
see why he ehould withdraw to feuit those
republicans who cluim tbe Germans will
have too large a representation on the
ticket should he be chosen. He argues
that this difficulty could be avoided by
dropping either Koehler or Haas, but of
course, they being "on the slate," the
combination men will not listen to such a
move. All in all Schroeder is causing
the administration crowd a good deal
more uneasiness thua they care to admit.

success. Ladies eave thronged the store
the entire day, and many from Davenport

beautiful display of fabrics in the various
bright tints of spring. The second floor
seemed to vie with tbe store floor as a
place of attraction. There was display
ed an assortment of jackets for spring
such as has not been seen in tbe tri cities

river in Arkansas to act as en
gineer on the Gen . Touphins, has re
turned home, and will this season have
his old position on the steamer Swain,
running between here and Clinton Mr.
Hakvs was much pleased with the White
river country. Tbe boat be was on was
in tbe cotton trade and ran from New
port to tbe bead of navigation, some 275
miles Mr. Hakes says the ma
jority of the people of that country
are very ignorant and only raise child
ren, cotton, corn and pork, yet are
very happy in their way, particularly
when they can get themselves outside of
all the pork and corn dodgers they want.
That river, he says, is most of the year
clear as a spring, and you can see fish at
a great depth. They are caugh. with
spears; game is very plenty, particularly
wild turkey, two of which he shot
from tbe s'.eamer. The soil there is ,
good, and there is plenty of fine timber
and lead and zink ore. There is a good
deal of excitement now oyer the develop
ment of the latter ore an 1 a great deal
