JIor Features of the M. E. Enter-

1 hr Baby Know in the Afternoon and
I lie Dragon frly l.snt KVrnmg;
One of the most interesting features of
t'.te May festival given bj the ladies of
tie M. E. church at the Rock Island rink
as the baby show which occurred yes
terday afternoon. Thirty cherubs were
eatered to compete for the prizes, all be
ing under two years of age and among
which were all styles of beauty, and each
dressed in the manner best calculated to
in the admiration of the jidze3, who
ere from Davenport and Mun, they
baiDg selected from abroad so that better
e rtisfaction would be given all around.
They were.Rev. and Mrs. J. S. Mclntire.
of Davenport. Rev. W. T. Kerr, of Milan,
aad Mrs. U. Z. Gilmer, of Davenport.
After a long consultation and mature de
liberation the first prize, a beautiful gold
watch, was awarded to Miss Ethel Bab
ock, the 6-months old daughter of Ralph
Eabiock and wife, of Black Hawk, and
granddaughter of ex-Sheriff T. S. Silvis,
and the second prize, a baby carriage, was
awarded to a little daughter of Mrs.
Swindler, after which each of the other
little ones was presented with a fine gold
p ated chain as a souvenir of the occasion
The exhibition brought in about $33.
Another large crowd was present last
evening and the scene presented by a
large number of young and old all enjoy
irg themselves was indeed pleasing, there
b ing a larger number present than on
tte previous evening. The ladies at the
different booths were kept busier than
btfore and seemed greatly pleased at
meeting with such success. Biehl's band
is stationed at one end of the rink and
furcishc-8 delightful music which is a very
pUasant feature. The entertainment of
tha evening was the presentation of the
Dragon Fly Day, which is a spectacular
production by 50 children all arranged in
gay costumes representing dragon flies,
hornets, butterflee, etc., the preparations
for which have been going on for sDme
ticie past. The costumes were made
under the supervision of Mrs. J. P.
Rc binson and Mrs .Georga W. Cash, and
show much ingenuity and exceeding
good taste. The musical part of the
performance was also under the direc
tion of the above ladies, while the drill
ing for the march was under the direc
ticn of Ma. Charles Stoddard, and the
mt.nner in which it was carried out is in
dicative of the pains taken by those in
charge, as well as the aptitude shown by
th'i young people who participated there
in. It was prepared during two weeks'
vacation and the songs and chorus
were all rendered in a pleasing manner.
The scene represents u day among
drigon flies. The bad boy who told a
lie; the two little girls who pulled the
wings off the hutterflies "just for fun,"
and the philosopher who would embalm
th m and torture them, being among the
characters represented. Tne dragon fly
day will be presented again on Thursday
This afternoon at 4 o'clock Prof.
AN bittemore gave a recital, and this eve
ning, "Jubilee Night ou the Old Planta
tion" will be presented.
Tomorrow will be "Railroad day," and
tha ladies will serve a lunch in the after
noon and supper ia the evening and af
ter the reproduction of "The Dragon
Fly Day" will come the "March and
Sengs of the Harvesters."
The foliowing is the cast of characters
tiien in the presentation of "The Dragon

The Health ComraUniuer,
The failure of Mayor McConochie to
appoint a health commissioner at Monday
night's meeting of the council is occa
sioning considerable comment of an ad
verse nature. People fail to understand
the motive of withholding this one np
pointment, and many are the inquiries
made as to what his honor intends to do
in the premises. This is a very hard
thing to determine, however, for in the
case of this important office, Mr. McCon
ochie has displayed a greater degree of
equivocation, weakness and betrayal of
confidence than even in that of the su
perintendent of waterworks.
So far as public expression
can be accurately pleaned Dr.
Eyster has made a most efficient and sat
isfactory health commissioner. There
have been no complaints of neglect of
duty, and the absence of epidemic disease
is certainly a forcible cause for the exist
ing belief that the city 13 in an excellent
sanitary condition. If the mayor is sin
cere, too, it is to be inferred that he per
sonally desires to retain Dr. Eyster, but
tie same influence has been brought to
bear to sway him from his sense of duty as
has in the case of John A. Murrin as sup
erintendent of waterworks. Bu such in
fluence, however, is not so much directed
agiinst Dr . Eyster as in favor of Dr. C.
B. Kinyon. The mayor knows full well
that the majority, if not two-thirds of the
council, favor the retention of Dr. Eys
ter. Thus he hopes to be relieved of his
embarrassing predicament by importun
ing Kinyon to withdraw, since the pres
ent incumbent is so popular with the
council, thereby enabling the mayor to
carry out his own wishes and best judg
ment and reappoint him.

Mayor McConochie's annua) message
is not as voluminous as last year, but it
could stand a little pruning very well.
Happily he his omitted the indisenmate

then, of course, some of the officers are
not as efficient now as they were then

In addition to its employment for cool
