The chief aim of all go-ahead cities is
to secure the inf ettment f outsida cap
ital, in such manner as will give employs
ment to labor. Birmint;tain has shown
the true spirit of the times in this rerpect
and its example is worthy of emulation.
Its public spirit is a credit to the ne w
south, of which it is destined through its
enterprise and push to become one of the
leading industrial centers. It may be
considered as reasonably certain, further
more, that any outside capital seekiag in
vestment in Birmingham will find acordial
welcome in keeping with the substantial
encouragement already shown. Outside
capital in any community should be en
couraged rather than ant igonized, and it
is due to this fact thai Rock Island
through the inslrumentalUy of its city
council and Improvement association has
effectually sat down upon the local
croakers who yap at the enterprise of
outside capital andatttmot to discourage
it rather than laud it.
Rock Island has shown its desire to en
courage outside capital in every way pos
sible in the granting of ordinances, etc.,
and has profited then by. What is
needed now is some of the same liberal
policy as is manifested by the thrifty city
of Birmingham. Icves'tients of such a
nature are bound to conn back and the
gains which accompany them are not
only those of the people making the in
vestment, but of the enti-e local public.

General Superintendent Schnitger was
in conuitation with Postmaster Welis
this morning as to the ba-.idlini; of the
mails. The pouches between Rock Inl
and and Moline may be handled by such
o: the conductors as are sworn for the
purpose, but the heavy mails to and from
the Rock Island depot .and to and from
Davenport will requite a Bpecial messen
ger no tloubt.
A mail box will be p'.sced on one of
of the Mi lb n cars as soon ts one adapted
to the purpose can be secured, and will
be robbed at this end every two hours.
Of course there will be n.i mail boxes on
the other euro as they will 'be required to
carry sealed pouunes only, and the mail
box would be of no service, as each of
the three cities is sufficiently provided
with boxes. The box on the Milan car
will be carried free of charge.
Assistant Superintendent of Mail Ser
vice Ellwood will meet Manager Louder
back, oT the street car system, either in
Chicago tomorrow or in Rock Inland
Monday to perfect details.
One of the big scenes in "Kajanka" is
where the Hindoo idol is struck by light

in an instant to an Indian terrace with
prismatic fountains from each step of the
magic staircase. The first production of

sixteen years of age who it described as a

Little Bertoto will cause a sensation on

The Davenport Tribune of this mcrn
ing after referring to the late rumors of
the disposal of the Davenport Central
railway lines to the tri-clty syndicate and
the appointment of Dr. Allen of Daven
port as manager, announces : 'When
Dr. Allien was questioned yesterday by a
Tribune reporter he said he knew nothing
of any such deal having been completed,
and that the reports evidently originated
in the brain of some over-zealoas news
Prom this coup'ed with Mr. Louder
back's telegram to The Argus yesterday
one would be apt to conclude that there
was nothing serious in the rumors re
ferred to. There is nothing new in the
railway deals today so far as can be
learned, although as Tub Arotjs stated
a week ago, something may drop at al
most any time. It is a pretty well as
sured fact that any negotiations that may
be made in Davenport will not affect
Rock Island. This side of the river wilj
be maintained distinct, so it is hoped and
under the same management that it now
"I should dislike greatly to see the
lines of the syndicate on this side of the
river run under the Davenport manage
ment as suggested by the report of yes
terday," said a representative cit z;n this
morning. "Not that I have a word to
say against Dr. Allen personally." he con
tinued, "for he is a progressive-minded
citiren for whom I have the highest re
gard, both in a busiuess way and socially,
but the point is.I dont;like to see the lines
on this sido of the river ruu from an end
that represents a system which has ruu
down. It is self evident that a consoli
dation muet be made in Davenport, for
the good of both the syndicate and the
Central company, but there should be no
cotidition of such a deal which should place
the Rock Island and Molinb systems under
a management representing that portion
which has ruu down. There might h"
too much of a disposition to build up the
lines which are not so good at the ex
pense of this side of the river. Rock
Island and Moline are doing well by the
syndicate in patronage and they are de
serving of the best it affords and would
not submit to having the rag tag and bob
tails, that non-paying lines in Davenport
may be built up."
HEATH OF A PI0AEER
William Little. cT Taylor Kids'.
William Little, of Taylor Ridge, died
lan night at 10 o'clock of cancer with
which he had been a sufferer for six
months. He was essentially one of the
pioneers of this section of the state.
James Taylor, who today brought the
news of his death to Rock Island, was his
senior by a few years only in residence in
Rok Island county. For nutty years
three of our early settlers have lived out
there within a short distance of each
othet: .lames Taylor, who came iu 1842;
Willi am Miller, who settled in 1846; and
William Little, who had lived on the farm
on which he died biucc 1847.
He was 65 years of age and leaves tbe
following children, bis wife having died
several years ago: Francis and Divid
in Kansas. Robert at home, Mrs. O'Neill
and Mrs. William ileain. of Milan, and a
married daughter iu Kansts.
The funeral will be held from Mr. L:t
tle's farm, near Tsjlor Ridge at 10
o'clock tomorrow morning.

and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an intUtned condi
tion of the mucous lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, ami unless tba im
fiammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroved forever; nine
cases out of 10 are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an infiimed Condi-,
tion of the mucous surface.
We will give $100 for any case of
deafness (caused by catarrh) that we can
not cure by taking Hall's Catarrh cure.

There are no two breeds that have so
firm a hold on the breeders of America
as the Brahmas and Plymouth Rocks.
Those who keep fowls for profit and
those who are compelled to satisfy their
tastes inside the most practical breeds
invariably keep the Brahma or Ply
month Rock: the demand will naturally
be preater for these two breeds.
The broiler industry, the rearing of
roasters and capons and the egg farm
are in their infancy. Their growth is
going to be rapid. When this demand
has really begun to be felt, the breeders
of special purpose fowls will not want
for orders. The demand for India Games,
Dorkings, Leghorns, Minorcas, Red Caps
and similar fowls is growing, and the
breeders of these varieties are increasing
with preat rapidity. American Agri
culturist Oatu as Pic Feed.
Many farmers consider oats as a part
ration a most excellent feed for hogs.
Southern Cultivator mentions hearing a
successful farmer speak much in their
praise. His custom was to use equal
parts of corn and oats, ground, and on
this ration his hogs did splendidly and
were exceptionally free from disease.
Against this is an experiment that show
ed very plainly that a sow suckling young
pigs did not thrive well on a ration of
about two-thirds oats. The chaff seem
ed too much like straw for the sow to
relish them. When the pigs have at
tained some size a ration one-third oats
to two-thirds cornmeal is recommended
as producing good results. For brood
sows and stockers they can lie used with
profit where a maintenance ration is the
object sought. Shorts make a better
mixture with corumeal for a sow suck
ling, as the pigs will gain taster on this
Buckwheat iu the Orchard.
Two or thfe9 growths of buckwheat
can be grown in the apple ore-hard in a
Bingle season, says Field and Farm, pro
vided they are plowed under without
ripening seed. As the seed is not expen
sive, this may be better for the land than
to raise only one crop and let it go to
st-ed. There is not a great deal of plant
food in buckwheat, therefore it does not
rob the scil. Plowed under, buckwheat
loosens the soil as few other crops do,
and this on heavy lard is often very im
portant for apple and pear trees. The
looser the soil the more water it will
hold without hardening the surface,
consequently buckwheat helps to pre
