CLOSE OF THE DEAL.
The raimttaia t ka HlaaiFd far JHa
llBje'e B fJaatatlidatleai mt ladas
Messrs. C. H. Deere aod 9. II. Velie, of
Moline. are in Chicago consulting other
gentlemen interested in the syndicate
which proposes to control three of that
city's biggest factories. The result
seems to be that the deal is now closed.
This morning's Chicago Tribune sajs:
The terms of the purchase of the Mo.
line Plow company, the Deere & Mansur
company and the Deere & Co. harvester
works, all at Moline, 111., have been
sgreed upon, and within a day or two all
tue details or the deal will be made Dub
lie. Arrangements for the purchase of
tne three big concerns have been going
on for several montns, but Yesterday the
deal was closed at a meeting of the capi
talists interested at the Grand Pacific.
and hereafter the establishments will be
'jonducted under one management.
As Mr. Deere has been in Texts for
several weeks, and Messrs. F, L. Under.
ood. of Kansas City, and W. R. Green,
of New York' the promoters of the trans
tiction, in Boston, it was impossible to
come to any definite understanding, but
yesterday morning the three men referred
lo returned to Chicago, and in room 355
ft the Grand Pacinc hotel, the final pa
ra were signed. Representatives or
llontsna. eastern capitalists were also
resent when the transfer was made and
toe new corporation practically placed in
1 ossession of the new management.
The deal involves fuily 3.000,000cap
i !. It in said, however, tbat the capital
stock of the new concern has been in
creased S500 000. and that cornplantera,
plows, harvesting machines, reapers,
s .eel hay rakes and nu-nerous other
f irmingiinplements will be manufactured.
Fiices, the promoters claim, will go down,
aid they say that when the policy of the
new corporation is known there will be
qnte a stir in manufacturing circles.
The main part of the plant will be lo
cated at Moline. but there will also be a
branch establishment near Chicago,
ground for the purpose having been pur
ctased west of Clyde, near the Chicago,
Birlington & Qaincy tracks.
It is understood tbat Mr Deere retains
a large Interest in his Moline establish
ments. A Moline gentleman somewhat ioter
es ed in the deal told the Dispatch he
ucderstood the capital of the syndicate
would be f 5.200.000. This being the case
thi:re is probably an error in the Tribune's
Health, or the Slate.
Dr. John II. Ritich. secretary of tie
state board ut healtn, is sending out to
the municipal authorities of the state a
circular letter reading as follows:
At tte recent quarterly meeting of the
Illinois state board of health I was in
stricted to communicate with the various
municipalities of the state and to urge
the importance and necessity of a thor
ough cleaning and overhauling of every
city, town and village before the begin
ning of warm weather. The death-rate
in Illinois during the last few months
shows that the vitality of the people is
red iced. This condition has been
brojght about by causes tbat were
not strictly sanitary. When these
facts are borne in mind the ne
cessity for cleaning will be obvious,
since in the present state of health the
peoale are more than ordinarily likely to
be affected by unsanitary conditions. It
is hoped that these suggestions wi!l be

Arxy and Navy Medical association, an
nounces that the annual meeting of He
association will be held in Springflel I,
May 13, the alay before the meeting of
the 1 late medical society. In addition to
the members an invitation to attend is
extended to all reputable physicians now
living in Illinois, whether in practice or

of the state from which they enured the
service, and to all who were surgeons or

Attacking Ant Hilla fVfth Cannon.
In the forest of Guiana dwell some very
large and exceedingly ferocious black ants,
whici throw up hills fifteen and even
twenty feet in height. They will not hesi
tate 10 attack man, and their headquarters
are usually given a wide berth. The trav
eler Malouet speaks of having witnessed
the !estruction of one of these fortresses
and its inhabitants in a way that was cer
tainl extraordinary. A trench was dug
entirely around it and filled with dry wood,
which was set fire to simultaneously at ail
points. Then a train of artillery was
brou ht to bear and the hill knocked to
pieces willi the cannon balls. The ants,
seeking to escape, were all burned in their
atterr.pt to cross the fiery gutter. Inter

Anti-Bust Coal Tar.
A simple and economical way of tarring
sheet iron pipes to keep them from rusting
ia as fil lows: The sections as made should
be coated with coal tar and then filled with
light --vood shavings, and the latter set on
fire. It is declared that the effect of thin
treatment will be to render the iron prac
tically proof against rust for an indefinite
period, rendering future painting unneces
sary. It is important that the iron should
not be made too hot, or kept hot too long a
time, lest the tar should be burned off.
Hence the directions for the use of light
shavings instead of any other means of
heatin . New York Journal.
