Camp Meeting Grounds. Tindall's
Grots, Aug. 19. This will probably be
the last camp meeting held ia these
groves, though of course one never knows
what tbe future may bring forth. At
any rate, however, the proposition to have
a camp grounds on the island near the
Watch tower in accordance with the idea
of Presiding Elder Heart, of this M. E.
district, meets with favor which is gaining
ground daily. The present camp grounds
while pleasantly tiiuaied, not with
standing that considerable money has
been expended in buildings, etc the
tabernacle being an especially fine struc
ture are too far out of the way.
All are beginning to rel:zi that.
There are a great many people
who woull attend camp meeting
if tbe grounds wtte tearer tte city, so
that they could get home in case of sick
ness or a severe storm. It is on thi9 ac
count that tbe proposition of Mr. Head
and tbe generous oiler of the Rock L-Und
& Milan road to locale a permanent
grounds on tbe island for all churches,
and on wbifh the Methodists could have
their own tents and own time of guiag
into camp, is considered popular.
The piesent annual camp meeting of
the Methodists of the Rock Island dis
trict of the Central Illinois conference; is
progressing nicely under the direction
of Presiding Elder Head, who has a
promise that Rev. C. C. McCabe, D. D.,
missionary secretary, the famous singer
and celebrated G. A. R. chaplain, will be
present all day on tomorrow and address
tbe audience both morning and afternoon.
This will be missionary dy. The Jew
els, lei by Miss Madge Adams, will have
tbe children's hour at 1.30 p. m. The
regular W. F. M. S. will have charge of
the services at 2:30 p. m. The Confer
ence quartette, composed of
Revs. 1. H. Cumming, Wil.
liam Wooley, R. A. Brown and
A. P. Beall, will be present during a large
part of the encampment and fayor the
people with some of their choicest melo
dies. Rev R. A. Brown, of Aledo. will
have charge of tbe music during the meet
ing. They hope to have 100 splendid
voices in the choir. F'.rpt rf the

tiful effect, and W. J. Pinkerton, of

FOIWO L A BARREL.
IMnrovery cfthe Urawrr Stolen From

A discovery by accident that may lead
to the unearthing of tbe mystery sur
rounding the burglary of W. R. Moore's
office's office, in Moline, was made yester
day at the pump wotks there. Alva
Funk was seeking for his dinner bucket
whici s .meone hadbidden for a joke, and
was looking in an old barrel near the pile
of pig iron south of tbe foundry when be
discovered what on further inspection
proved to be a drawer from W. R. Moore's
safe. It contained some valuable papers,
but what all these papers were Mr. Moore
can't remember. There were about a
dozen documents left, but the box is now
locked np in Marshal Kittilscn's safe and
the owner had at last accounts not seen
Tbe matter has created a great deal of
talk. One man who has been under sus

Aa Old .11 an in JRag Who Claim to
Itavn Been One ol the Fain tint Six
Hundred Who Entered thi Jaw. or
There was an old man on tbe streets of
Peoria during the past few days, wearing
a tattered blue suit of clothe and an
antique tnili'arj air, who ia a curiosity,
says the Transcript. He is either the
possessor of a most remarkable personal
history, or is the grandest aingle-baaded
liar that ever wagged a tongne within the
walls of a city. At any rate he ia a
curiosity. Hd was engaged in tbe most
elevating past-tims of begging during his
stay here, an! claimed that he was trying
to work bis way to Quincy, Lear which
place his eldest daughter resided on a
farm. The individual gave his name as
Nixon McDetmott. tnd his place of resi
dence as anywbire be happened to strike
at sun down. The old man spoke wiiu
a decidedly Celtic accent, and made no
attempt to deuy Lis Irish lineanc. Aci
cordi&g to bis own story lie whs for
23 years a soldier of the English
army, and at the present time h in
receipt of thp princely pension of SI. 25.
It if not. knon whether r not it took a
special act of e.rlUment to sequin ibis
amount, but hj receives it v. c.ij lute.

The out pctiod of incident iu his career
of whicb be U more proud thim any
other, is Lis y. rticipition iu the f .iaous
charge at Hnlaklava during the Crimean
war. According to his story be went to
the Crimea as a foot soldier, but g lined a
transfer to the light horse, and wa
placed in L id Ilarrj'.igtoo's romruaLd of
600 English and Irishmen. lie ha-: been

frightful scenes cf carnage. The old Tin
was asked ahy be did not remain ia E in
land and enjoy tbe distinction which it
was thought he would uo doubt command.
Eis eyes grew dim and his voice hu k as
he answered that out of 60 survivors of
that famous charge, who are now residing
in EngJcud, 47 of thtm are in
mates of almshouses. The bard heir ted
brutality of the English government to
wards her soldiers is well known but it
was hardly thought that it waa eyer car
ried that far. Tbe poor old man said
that if he ever reached hia daughUr be
would be furnUhed with a shelter and
proper care in declining years.
McDermotl's story, although it admits
of great doubt, is by no means an impos
sible one. It is well known that' many
survivors of that awful dash still live. It
is only a few years since Miguel Vonie
died at his home near St. Joseph's cbuich
in Burlington. Tbe old man bad a history
more remarkable and mtny yc&To clJer
than this man's. Old Vonie was a sol
dier under Napoleon and followed the tri
color of France and the great general over
the burning Bands of Egypt, through
sunny Italy and upon tbe frosty, snow
covered plains of Russia. He was at
Lodi, Marengo, AuBtcrlitz, Leipsic and
Waterloo, and only left France when the
idol of his heart, tbe great Napoleon,
breathed his last at tbe barren rock of St.

tbe Rock Island, savs that notwitbstand.

The Rock Island's mileage bock fight
against the Atchison has proven back
acting, says the Cbicsgo Mail It will re
recalled that the Rock Island charged the
Atchison with violating a rule of the as
sociation in doing a brokerage business
with second hand or scalped editorial
mileage lickets. The Atchison not only
entered a denial but made a coun
ter charge that the complaint was
based upon false representations
and ' was malicious. It held the
Rock Iiland was guilty of a violation
of rules in maliciously instituting
charges that were without foundation in
fact, and asked that the Ruck Island be
required to pay tbe penalties prescribed
in the agreement. The whole row wan.
about a ticket said to have been pur
chased by an agent of the Rock Island at
the ticket office of the Atchison, good
from Chicago to Denver, for which he
paid 128.50, the tariff rate being 830 65.
Tbe chairman decided that tbe charge
against the Atchison was not sustained,
but be held that the Rock Island
