Who ehbll bave the contract for the
paving of market square? s .
This is now one of the subjects of gen
eral public interest. At tie last council
meetiDg two bids were submitted, opened,
koJ referred to tbe street and alley and
finance committee and tbe mayor. Since
tben Mayor McConocbie bas done some
figuring on each, and be Las footed out
the following iDtereatinK exhibit from
ROCK FORD CONSTRUCTION COMPANY.

Edwards & Walsh, for resetting old
curb, 5 cents per foot.
Rockford Construction Co., for reset
ting old curb. 15 cents per foot.
There is not a great ran'e of difference
in figures between the two bids, and since
both bidders are Rork Island institutions
there is no ground f ir discrimination on
the ground of locl preferences. The
Rockf jrd Construction cotspany claim to
be alile to put the work in at once if the
contract is awarded to that company, while
F. lwards A Walsh accompany their bid
with a guarantee that shot.ld their bid be
accepted, they Bgree to finish the work
within 30 day9 frcru tbe lime cf the sign
ing of the contract and to forft-it $20 a
dny for each dy thut e'ap. es after failure
to do it within the specified time. This
requirement or one similar, should be a
condition of the contract jo matter to
wh' nnoever it is entrusted
T:;e public schle9 and siianty in the
middle of the square will no doubt be
moved before the paving it. entered upon.
Tbe city has rot;m for iht ra on its own
ground near the pound on Fratiron
square, out of tbe way ot the engine
house and there they ehou d be taken.
Edwards &, Walsh have reached tbe
east side of Twenty'sixth street going
east with the pavemtnt on Moline avenue,
having made two blocks tbe past week
and have now completed one-third of the
work they txpected to do when they com
menced six weeks aco. As the worst
pwt of tbe work is over, tbe firm bas good
reason to expect to reach Thirtyeighth
by the time cold weather crmpels a sus
pension. Itavt i.ir( liewa r Mwri-per.
The street committee, in their report to
tbe city council Wednesday night, recom
mended the purchase of a l!arnard Castle

comrr.itiee finds this is llie l est machine in

authorized to purchase a sweeper and

Slonty ciinot bs; expended in a more
useful way than this Clean streets not
only adl much to the appearance of a
city but are an imperative necessity.
They create a much more favorable im
pression of the city upon visitors and
mate it known abroad. With the in
crease in the number of i aved streets,
this machine will be used to good ad
vantage. Davenport Timet.
By the way, bow about the sweeper the
council author z jd the maj or aud street
and alley committee to purchase for
Rock Iiland? Tbe comnittee made a
visit to Davenport and inspected tbe
working of a former macb.oe there, but
it worked on entirely too an expensive a
scale. May be the new arrangement will
prove more economical.

The Military Tract Iteuuion.
The Military Tract Reunion asaocia
ation of Illinois, will hold its seventh
annual reunion at Princeton, Sept. 23 25.
This association embraces a.l G. A. R
posts, and all soldiers and saiiots in tbe
20 counties in the military tract ot Illi
nois. The reunion will no doubt be the
largest gathering of old veterans ever
held in Illinois, and Princeton is making
arrangements to give her guests a royal
reception and hearty en'.ertainment. An
invitation, of which The Anors has re
ceived a copy, signed by Gen. T. J. Hen
derson, of the committee on invitalion.s,
and James R. Cott'e, adjutant, sajs:
"We feel as the years go down that we
cannot make too great sacrifices to meet
the 'old vets' and hear them, in song
and story, tell of the times whyn thev
were comrades together in the days of the
The Hook Iland"N .'tv Line.
A special from Leavenworth, Kan.,
reads as follows: ' Oi tbe authority of
a weil posted railroad man, who stipu
lated that his name shall not be men
tioned, the statement is made that the
Rock I-land will toon build a line from
Leavenworth to Topeka, Kansas, to con
nect with the Cameron, Mo., branch to
this city. The work will soon begin, and
thi. nia.n line busiac::, pas.Si.cgar aii.l
freight traffic will go by tbe way of
Leavenworth as soon as tbe Top-jka line
is in runnicg order. The object of the
change is apparent. The Rock Inland
now runs from Cameron, Mo , to Topek
by way of Kansas City over tbe lines of
olher railroads, and in that 12; mils is
forbidden to mate slops at intermediate
point?. 1' is also urged in support cf
the new plan that tbe Rock Island will
still operate from Kansas City lo Topeka,
w-hile the new line would open to the
road ariis-h of local bu-iness."

There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed 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, and unless th3 im
flamm ation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out cf 10 are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed 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.
