The editor of the Quincy Journal is
making a tour up the riyer on the steamer
Sidney He has written his paper an en
teriaioi.ie etttr on the cities visaed hlong
the shore aod thus he tpeaka of this lo
cality: The next towns of importance above
Muscatine are Rock Island. 111., and Dav
enport, Iowa. They have beautiful sites
and are bo.b bright-looking towns. Dav
enport is marly twice as large as Rock
Island, the population of Rock Island
being 13,5m) and that of Davenport,
25.UU0. The population of Moline,
which adjoins Rock Island on the north,
is 12.000. 8 ) that Moline and Rock Island,
which are substantially one, are a little
larger than Davenport.
There is a wagon bridge connecting
Davenport and Rock Ieland.
At Rock Island, the Rock Island rapids
begin, and extend north 15 miles to Le
CI lire, low v Tne fall in that distance
is 20 feet. The Kovemment has already
spent over a million and a quarterof dol
lars making a channel through the rock
bottom of tsese raoips. Work is now in
progress. In many places the boats run
in a channel that runs between two stone
walls, the rocks in the channel having
been blasted out with dynamite. Scores
of borings having been mads for dy
namite charges. The place of each
boring is mt.rked by a good sized willow
stick rammtd down into the boring, and
held fast there- When the engineers are
ready these borings will be charged with
dynamite ard a great explosion will ho
made. The loosened rock is removed
from the mer. Stone piera are built in
the river to mark the course of the chan
nel, and namberless buoys are main,
tained to cvirk dangerous rocks. Spe
cial pilots p lot alt boats uo and down
through the rspids. A pilot gets $3 for
piloting a boat like the Sidney through
the rapids. It takes from two hours acd
a quar.cr to two hours and a half to make
the run up end about an hour and a half
to run down.
The lslanc of Rock Island begins at the
city of Rock Island. It is about four
miles long, and has an area of 975 acres.
It is a royal. j beautiful spot. We saw
nothing prettier on our trip. The base of
the island is solid limestoue. It is high
acd dry above high watt -i. and the gov
ernmect arsenal and miliiary works are
on RocK Iainnd. All sorts of military
trappings, munitions and accoutrements,
we undcrslaid, are made there, except
ordnance. It is a spot that we should
like to inspect.
Col. DaveaDort's eld house, the one in
which he was murdered, is still standing.
It ia quite lUe the p cure of it in a book
issue i some 4'J yeats ago entitled "The
Banditti of the Prairie, or The Murderer's
Doom," in w hich was detailed, in striking
phrase, the tloody work of these border
rufflaDS of Ic wa and Illinois. There is no
Ned Buntlije business about that old
book. Imagination had nothing to do
with its preparation. It is history, not
fiction. Its blood-curdling stories are
true. The n.urdeiers, whose bloody ex
ploits it recounts, met their doom upon
the scaffold. What Iowa or Illinois pio
neer hag nov read 'The Banditti of the
Prairie, or The Murderer's Doom?" We
hope that Col. Davenport's old house will
be permitted to stand until it is worn out
The bands me scenery on the river be
gins at Rock Island. Every foot of the
way above Rick Island is beautiful. The
river above Rock Island is narrower, and
the bluffs cone dewn to the river on both
sides nearly all the way. I am told that
the prettiest oart of the river lies above
McGregor. It is our present purpose to
see this part of the river on our way home
from St. Pacl.

There were two circuses in town yes

smaller circus which OS ;er Glass made
of himself in attempting to run in a part
of the parade of the former while it was
passing along Second avenue. The of

Scarcely less foolish is the practice of those who
flytotiolcnt physicing for costiveaess. They
dose themselves violently weaken theirbowels by
so doing:, anddieab.e them from acting regularly,
so that, verily, the last condition of such peop.e
is worse than the first. Hostettcr's Stomach Bit

vast expedients, for it is by r.o means cxedient
to use them. What is needed is a gentle but
tboronch laxative, which not only insnres action
of the bowels without pin or weakening effects,
which also promotes a healthy secretion anil flow
