Clrrk Kohlei'e Daughter Married.
At the Broadway Presbyterian church
last evening Rev. W. S. Marquis united
in marriage August Schrr.id, of this city,
and Miss Liura Otto, of Davenport. At
the conclusion of the happy ceremony
Mr. and Mrs. Scbmid drove to Daven
port, where they had a home furnished
and where ibey will hereafter reside. The
happy couple were fol'owed by many
A quiet little wedding took place at
the residence of Col. Kohler. county
clerk, on Fifth avenue, last evening. It
deprives Moline of one of her fairdaugh
ters a popular school teacher, a fine
musician and a young lady socia ly pops
ular. The wedding took place at 8
o'clock, and Kev. II. O. Lindeblad was
the officiating clergyman. The
bride was none other than Miss Eilma
Kobler, daughter of the host and host
ess, and the lucky bridegroom was Mr.
Jonas Westling. Mr. Westling is known
to many people io Moline, be having been
manager of the Augustana Book Concern
for a period terminating about seven
years ago. From here he went to Cbi
cago. and for a time filled a responsible
position in the big book house of A. C.
McClurg & Co. His present home is at
Denver, Col., where he is book-keeper for
the new book bouse of Lock & Stone.
The only guests at the wedding of last
evening were the immediate relatives of
the contracting parties. These included
Mr. fcns Westling, of McPherson. Kan..
brother of the bridegroom.
After the ceremony, supper was served
and a sociable time was had till the bride
and bridegroom look a carriage for the
Rock Island depot. They departed on
the 11 :05 train for Chicago, where thev
will visit a week or more. They will
stop in Moline, on their trip to Denver,
where they will make their home. While
regretting the loss of so estimable a lady
from Moline, we congratulate the bride
groom as well as the city of Denver, on
ner acquisition. May great joy attend

The stone crushing enterprise into
which II. C. trchaffer, of this city, and
associates have embarked on Sylvan isl
and under the name of Tropp & Co.,
promises to be an important industry. A
contract bus been closed between the
Moline Water Power company and Tropp
& Co. by which the latter become for a
period of years the lessees of a strip of
land on Sylvan island bordering on the
north side of the tailrace below the pow
er station. The consideration is not
stated. The object of Messrs. Tropp &
Co. in getting control of the ground is to
mice, pulverize and export aa under
stratum of limestone that ranks very
high as an injjrtdient in glass manufac
ture. It is proposed to erect buildings
and establish a concern for crushing this
stone. They have already spoken for
some of the machinery, which will be
sent on from Akron, Ojio, as soon as the
buildings can be enclosed. The crushing
works will be located about half way be
tween the wagon bridge and the new
railroad bridge, and will constitute an
industry of no small importance. The
glass stone is already in heavy demand in
the glass concerns of Rjck Island, U:ta
wa, La Salle and other places, to which
it has been shipped in the condition it
has bean removed from the ground. The
supply is inexhaustible, and as to quality
it is only necessary to say that there is
only one glass 6tone yet discovered in the
Mississippi valley that at ail ranks with
it and that is at Louisiana, Mo , but the
Moline stone on analysis shows itself to
be even purer than that by 12i per cent.
It is the expectation of Messrs. Tropp
& Company to employ all the way from
20 to 50 men. The stone to be mined is a
peculiar variety of limestone that lies im
mediately benea'h the strata that crops
out on this island.

Trot tint and Paring Ilor.e Breeder
The North-western Breeders' Associa
tion, of Janesville. gave the banner trot
ting meeting of 1890, but their meeting
to be given Aug. 1? to 23 promises to
eclipse all trotting meetings for 1S91
Not less than 450 horses and colts are
entered for their six days' meeting, and
nearly all tbe prominent stables will be
represented. The noted California s.able
of Monroe Salisbury will be represented
by half dozen noted horses, among them
"Margarets," 2:12, tbe champion money
winner of 1890. Budd Doble has his
string of guilt edged animals entered;
among them Nancy Hanks, believed to
be the best 4-jear-old out. She will
meet Margaret S, when a contest worth
hundreds of miles of travel will be seen
The three crack performers of the turf,
llomestake, Alvin and McDoel, will give
an exhibition to enthuse the thousands
who will attend. The free-for-all pace
has seven flyers. Tbe 2:24 pace has tbe
unprecedented number of 29 performers,
while the 2:26 trot has the enormous num
ber of 34 entries. Even the 2:17 trot
has 12 noted performers, and the 2:33 trot
23, the 2:19 pace, 13, etc. The
entries in several classes are so numerous
that the entries will be divided, even then
making the largest fields of starters ever
seen upon a track. Tbe great carnival
will last six days, but the events will be
so numerous and varied that tbe audience
will never become wearied from delays.
In short the Breeders' Meeting will sustain
their well earned reputation of giving the
"biggest trotting show on earth.
