A Prayer of Buford Post Before the

understanding. .Sock Island. 111., May 80. Editor
Ai.gus: The board of supervisors again,
as laat year, refuse to approoriate money
to decorate the county monument in Rock
Island. A published account in the
Di.ily Union of May 2 of the proceedings
ot the county board on the 29th of April
recarding a petition presented by Buford
post to that body, misstates the prayer of
Bu :h petition and wholly omits an essen
tial feature of it, wherefore it is desirable
th it the public be inforned of its con
tents. The following is a correct copy
of the petition as read and filed by the
clerk of the board:
SFhebsas, The people of Kock Island
co mty have erected a beautiful marble
monument in court bouse square on
gr rands of the county, with names in
scribed thereon of the heroes who fell in
too late civil war from this county whose
bodies now many of them lie undis
ticguished on many a southern battle
fle d: and
Whereas. Our government has Eet
apart one day in the year sacred to the
m mory of fallen soldiers, ae a Memorial
day. the 30th day of May in every year.
Tterefore be it
Resolved, That the following petition
"To the honorable members of the
board of supervisors of Rock Inland
cointy, Illinois: Members of John Bu
ford post in regular meeting assembled
this 27th day of April, 1891, having an
enrolled membership of 190 persons, pray
your honorable body, as the legal repre
sentatives of citizens of the county to
mt k suitable appropriation of money for
the proper obseivance of Memorial day
at this county monument, in its decora
tion with wreaths and flowers, to keep
green the memories of those from our
mi 1st who died that the nation might live,
such appropriation to be expended under
the the direction of such committee as
yo ir honorable body may appoint.
This post believes that such liberal ac
tion of your honorable body will have the
hearty sanction and approval of every
pa riot'c citizen of Rock Island county.
Ezra Wilcheb, Commander.
T. Alex Montgomery, Adjutant.
After this reading. Supervisor Sinnet
moved that flOO be appropriated for that
pu-pose; Supervisor Frick moved as an
amendment that f 50 be so appropriated.
Suaei visor Smith, of Moline, expressed
his astonishment and his indignation that
Buford post should presume to airain pe
tition the board, after the proceeding
ha '. on last year's petition.
Comrade Brackett who had been le
pued by Buford post to present the peti
tion, was suffered to say that there was a
material difference between last year's pe
tition and the one now presented. Last
yet.r's petition asked for a specific sum of
money to be appropriated to Buford posl
for decoration purposes; the present pe
tition asks that only a suitable sum
be appropriated and expended by a com
mi tee of the county board, for a proper
obi ervaBce of Memorial day around th?
Another supervisor from Zuma replied
ths.t he could see no difference in the two
petitions, and that he should vote as be
did last year, to reject the prayer of the
petition. It was so rejected by a loud
no. and a modest yes.
It seems a little naught; in any super
visor, old or young, to get excited and
attempt a stinging rebuke to soldiers for
exi rcising their right of petitian to have
Memorial day suitably commemorated.

We ugly girls never get any drives in the
park nor free seats nt the theater, and as
for ice cream and French candy, no matter
how handsomely we deport ourselves, we
shouldn't know the taste of either if we
waited to have it bestowed upon us as a
reward of merit. Indeed the expensive
ness of being an ugly girl is one of the
worst ttiitig.s about it; there are no perqui
sites. We get none of the plums out of
life's pudding, for under present conditions

says, "All the line things we think and say
about women apply to those only who aro
tolerably good lookiug or graceful." In
fact, isn't it just a little litird that any
body's destiny in life should be made to
depend irretrievably upon an accident over
which the have no control, such as hav
ing leen born with a red head or it pug
nose? But this is the law under which
women have lived since the beginning o
time, and it doesn't give the ugly girls a
fair chance. E. F. Andrews iu Lippin

A hasty and inconsiderate breeze played
a mean trick a day or two ago on the little
old woman who grinds a hand organ on
Fourteenth street near Sixth avenue. A
black tin placard hung on the front of the
wheezy instrument, telling in white letters
to passers by, "I am paralyzed." Sudden
ly a vigorous gust of wind swept around
the corner, and catching the placard on the
under side swung it well out or its perpen
dicular and turned it completely over.

particles of paper subsided thero Bat the

out "Annie Roouey" behind the pathetic
incription on the sheet of black tin: "Kind
