THE NEW NO. 7.
Tlana of Architect Hammatt
AXine Room S1S.OOO Building to be
Ei eeted This Hammer A fcirU
The board of education held another
special meeting at 4 o'clock yesterday
afternoon to consider plans for the pro
posed new buiMing in the No. 7 district
near Edeewood pam. After due delib
eration the plans of Architect E S. Ham
matt, of Davenport, were accepted. The
building is to have nine rooms,
to cost 115,000, and to be provided with
the Ruttan system of heat and ventilation,
and to be in every way a first class
modern school building. Ia exterior ap
pearance it is to be much the same as No.
5, erected two years ago, though it is
larger, and if anything, a more imposing
structure. The board instructed the ar
chitect to prepare all hia specifications
for inspection bj contractors by June
1, and when once in readiness
only a week's time will be allowed
for bidding on the plans. The board
is determined that the building shall be
erected in the interim of the summer va
cation and the contract will be m?e suf
ficiently binding to insure it being in
readiness for occupancy by the time for
opening of the scnool in September.
The new building will make four abso
lutely new schools that have been erected
in Rock Island in five years, entailing an
expenditure for euch purposes of S75.00O,
a most gratifying indication of the citj's
growth, as well as an evidenca of the
progressive spirit of the people. Sub
stantial modern school buildings will en
courage increase in our popula

The hearing of the case against F.
Protar, publisher of the Volk Zeitung,
for sending copies of his paper through
the mails, containing what appeared to
be a lottery advertisement, came up in
the federal court at Peoria yesterday.
District Attorney Milchrist appeared for
the prosecution and J. T. Kenworthy, of
this city, for the defensi. Postmaster
Howard Wells and John Rinck were pres
ent aa witnesses. Mr. Protar stated that
he did not know and had no means of
knowing that the advertisement pub
lished in his paper was a lottery adver
tisement. The district attorney at once
withdrew the prosecution and rested the
case, ana ine court luuiruticu ju.j
find a verdict of not guilty whicn was
done, the court in his ruling holding that
there was not enough in the notice pub
lished to indicate to the casual reader
that it was a lottery advertisement.
When the case was concluded the district
attorney assured Mr. Protar it was
neither the government nor himself who
had been prosecuting the case, but no
one other than J. B. Danforth.

held in the church parlors last evening
and was largely attended. J. R. Mills
called the meeting to order, and George
Mixter wa elected chairman and S. J.
Keator secretary. Dr. j. W . Stewart
was reelected elder for thre years, and
II. B. Sudlow, trustee. Toe report of
Treasurer W. B. Ferguson thowtd the

The Bank of England is custodian of a
large number of boxes deposited by custom
ers for safety during the past 300 years, and
in not a few instances forgotten. .Many of
these consignments are not only of rare in
trinsic and historical value, but of great 1
romantic interest. For instance, some
years ago the servants of the bank discov
ered in its vaults a chest which on being
moved literally fell to pieces.
On examining the contents a quantity oi
massive plate of the period of Charles II
was discovered, along with a bundle o!
love letters indicted during the period ol
the Restoration. The directors of the bank
caused search to be made in their books:
the representative of the original depositoi
of the box was discovered and the plate and
love letters handed over.
No complete list of these unclaimed
boxes has ever been published, consequent
ly one often sees advertisements seeking
clews to such deposits. The following art
examples: "Information required as to the
whereabouts of a quantity of diamonds,
jewelry and plate belonging to the late

There is a military officer stationed in
this city who has a son at est Point.
Some time ago he had occasion to take the
boy to task for receiving such a low aver
age for conduct. 1 he lad having no ex
cuse silently bore the reprimand. As soon
as the parent had left West Point the boy
went to the library and got down the rec
ords for the years in which his father was
a cadet, and carefully marked down his
father's average for conduct. Soon after
the first visit the father called on his son 1
again and began to lecture him.
The son stood it lor a snort time, ana
then quickly going to his desk brought
out an envelope addressed to his father
nnd handed it to him. The boy said, "lie-
fore goiug any further, you had better look
at this." The father opened tne letter,
and as soon as he began to read it he saw
that his son had made a comparison of his
conduct average with his own, nnd as the
father's was the worse he quickly put the
letter in bis pocket and (said, "Well, my
bov, things were different then, but we
will drop the subject." After that the
cadet s reports were passed by the father
without comment. Philadelphia Press.
