Republic says, ' has increased the travel

Four sportive looking men were stand
ing on Main street yesterday afternoon,
watching the approach of a "swift moving '
tri-ity car. When it was witkin 50 feet
of them one of them stepped forward and
laid a nearly new 5 bill on the rail. He !
had bet that the paper was so tough that
the wheels of the car would pass over it
without doing it harm. Tbe motoraeer
did not see the set in time to rescue it
and the car sped over the spot where it
But it did not speed over the bill, to
any great extent, somebody had dropped
a chunk of chewing gum on tbe rail, or
some other equally adhesive substance,
and the wheel nad picked it un, and that
spot on the wheel happen d to come
down on the money. It covered it like
a blanket mortgage, only it lifted it a
heap easier than any mortgage was ever
lifted, and walked away down the street
with it, toward tbe St. James hotel at
something near the rate of 10 miles an
The way the four sports trailed after
that cur. and called out aloud and hoU
lered at the man on the front end and ran
themselves out of treath, was enough to
have ditched it. The $5 bill was found,
what there was of it. The wheel had
stepped on it about fifty times, and it
wasn't as handsome as when it entered
the race. The lathe work was obscured
in several places aad there were spots
where the light shone through it. And
then, seeing it all battered and bent as it
was, the man who laid it down led the
way to a bakery with swing doors and
frosted windows and finished ,it up by
breaking it. Davenport Democrat.

At the close of the sermon Sunday
morning the Rev. C. L. Morgan tendered
his resignation as pastor of the First Con
gregational church of Mo.ine to take
effect the last Sunday of August. Mr.
Morgan spoke very feelingly of his pas
torate there for nearly 10 yars and his
pleasant association with the members of
tbe chut ch. Recently, however, a new
field of labor has been opened, which,
after due investigation and consideration
he had concluded offered greater oppor
tunities of usefulness for his work than
could be had by his remaining in Moline.
Mr. Morgan did not say where the new
field lies, but it is quite generally under
stood by his parisboners to be the call to
the Church of the Redeemer in Chicago,
announced last week. The resignation is
to be considered at a meeting of members
of the church to bebeld Wednesds?
evening. Mr. Morgan expects to be ab
sent next Sunday and the Sunday follow
ing and has made arrangements for his
place to be supplied by the Rev. E. W.
Bliss, eyaogelist. After that Mr. Mor
gan will be at home and fill the pulpil for

Tbe features of Mr. Kimball beamed a
quiet but full and deep satisfaction Mon
aay as he announced that he bad receiv
ed advices to the effect that the suit of
the Rock Island to compel tbe Union Pa
cific road to acknowledge and comply
with the contract permitting tbe plaintiff
the use of the Omaha bridge had been
decided by Justice Brewer, of the district
court of tbe United States, and de
cided in favor of the Rack Island.
The readers of the Democrat recall
tbe matter in question. Tbe refusal of
the defendant ia tuis action barred tbe
Rock Island from opening its new Den
ver line January 4, as expected prior to
that time, and may have laid tbe foun
dation for a heavy suit for damages. It
is not thought by Mr. Kimball that the
defendant will carry tbe case any higher.
Damages tbat would prabably be asked
in event of loslnz it the second time
would be very heavy. There is now
nothing cow in the way, as the case
stands today, of the completion of the
Hock Island s line to Denver as contem
plated. Davenport Democrat.
