My Young Friends: To me the sub

a most important one, and I rejoice with
you that the national sentiment strength
ens in favor of our public schools. I feci
justly proud of our Rock Island scheols;
ihc'V have furnished you advantages sec
ord to no other. When I say this of our
schools in general I would errphasizs to
you the hope that you will all find it pos
sible to know for yourselves the benefit
of an education, take the next best step
higher, and enter upon and complete the
high school course.
The school board is pleased to know
that you have been faithful iu vour work
in the Echool room thus far. The exer
cises of this afternoon are proof of this.
Continue to be faithful, true and earnest,
&nd success will await you from step to
And now with the assurance of our
best wishes for your future, and as an in
centive for 6till greater tCorts on your
part, I am authorized by the board of ed

According to the Dispatch the eastern
promoters of the syndicate that was to
purchase the two plaw companies and
the Deere & Mansur Co., of Moline, left
for the east Tuesday night, and the deal
is now declared off. It is understood
that the failure to purchase was due to
the fact that at this season the large in
vestors are away from the cities and it is
difficult to reach them. It was the de
sire of the eastern promoters to bold the
option till fall, but the companies did not
deem it wise to be in the position of be
ing on tbe market indefinitely. It is not
improbable that negotiations may be re
newed in tbe fa'l. bat only the coming
of t.at time will enable any one to tell

At a meeting of tbe graduating class of

They are at it again-the upper end
farmers-over the Canoe creek drainage
waterway. The case of P. H. Buckley
versus John Fitzgibbons will be heard in
Justice Hawes' court tomorrow. It is
ft rather pecu'iar case, and somewhat re
sembles the celebrated McEairj Canoe
creek litigation of a few years ago.
Messrs. Jackson and Searle, of Rock Isl
and, sre the attorneys for the defense,
and W. A. Meese. of Moline. for the pros
ecution. Mr. Buckley and Mr. Fitzgib
bons have firms a short distance apart
near Josiin, each of the properties being
on a different side of the C. B. & Q.
railroad track. The natural course of the
water from the bluffs is past the north
side of defendant's house. After the
rains a very large body of water locates
upon the land, and to prevent this he
has put in a dam at the pMnt where it
enters his property on its course to
Rock river, thus driving the water
through a ditch he has made to the
railroad where it fiaally reaches the
premises of Mr. Buckley. Almost all
the farmers on the bottoms have to allow
a certain amount of water to pass through
their land but Mr. Buckley oojacts to
naving his pasture inundated bv water
which he alleges should pass along its
natural course through Fitzgibbons' farm
to Rock river, but which has been thrown
upon his (Buckley's) place by artificial
means resorted to by Fitzjibbons.
The complainant asks that the defend
ant be ordered to remove the dam and
thus allow the water to take its natural
course to Rock liw. Buckley also as-ks
that he be awarded damages for the
havoc already wrought on his land by the
waters after the dam was built.
Tbe case is a' trading a good deal of
attention among the farmers in the vi
cinity, and it is even said that Mr. Fitz
gibbons threatened t.j shoot Buckley if
hewtntupon his (Fi:z jibbon's) premises.

The surprise on Herman Liphardt
proved a success, and Herman was not
the only one surprised; through the in
genuity of his father a second surprise
was arranged and successfully carried
out. We will not state the nature of it.
A grocery wagon of Durke's from Erie,
together with tbe driver, had a wreck near
Jonn Schall's last Friday. It is supposed
the flowing bowl had a hand ia the work
judging from tbe apparent condition of
tbe rig and position of the driver when
thev passed through here.
One of our most successful farmers
and a well known minister, each b'eing a
great lover of practical jokes of a mild
nature, tried their hand on each other
one of those recent cold nights. The
minister had taken the farmer home in
bi" buggy, and tbe farmer complaining of
the cold, put an idea in the bead of the
reverend t! keep him out in the cold.
He accordingly entered into a very inter
esting discussion making frequent trips
to the well for water until about two hours
had elapsed and our farmer was chilled
to the marrow (being dressed ia summer
suit), when he decided to close the deba'e
ty going for a book which the reveres d
wanted to take along, but when in the
house he immediately retired, leaving the
minist- r at the gite until 5 o'clock in the
mornirp. When he looked out tbe win
dow a white frost covered the eurlh, like
wise the minister, wno had taken his dus
ter for a i-c&rf, ard delermined to stay
until he re.-eived tbe book. The curtain
dropped at this juncture.
