inaugurated its series of popular,intellec

brilliant aesembiage urgent was at once
a compliment to the association
as well as indicating with
what spirit Rock Island appreciates a high
order of attractions. It is bard y neces

of the programme, further than to note
that it was entirely satisfactory, both as
regards the musical features and the
reading, by Mrs. Clemens. Nearly all the
numbers were encored, the programme in

Xovel Way f Opening a Paved Street
In Peoria tbey are pretty near as en"
th usisstic over paved streets as they are
in Bock Island. There, too, brick is tbe
popular favorite, though in some locali
ties cedar blocks and granite have been
used. Recent' y, however, some asphalt
pavement has been tried, and the occa
sion of tbe opening of the newly made
thoroughfare was made one of particular
moment and enthusiasm. Thus the
Journal describes the event:
List night was a great time for Moss
avenue. The asphaltum pavement was
formxlly dedicated and thrown open to
the public and almost the who) city was
out to see it. Tbe night was calm and
still, just the time to properly show off
the decorations, and the committee bad
exerted themselves to the utmost to beau
tify tbe scene.. Sitne of the houses were
remarkable in this respect. Mrs. Brad
ley's grounds were decorated with a row
of Chinese lanterns in front. C. R
Wheeler's house was lighted up in every
part and the grounds were tastefully
decorated with rows of lanterns.
. C. Howlett's bouse and that of Nor
man King were connected by strings of
lanterns and the houses were covered
H. R. Woodward's place was illuminated,
so was Charles Coming's, while tbe
houses opposite, especially that of Wil
liam Marstere, was eUoorately festoned
and garlanded and arrayed. Everybody
was out and everybody was feeling
happy. At tbe upper end of the avenue
near Malvern street Spencer's band was
stationed, and about 9 o'clock Chief
Flvnn and bis assistants made heroic
e Sorts to clear a space in front of tbe
band for dancing. A f ;w couples tried
it but tbe crowd was so great tbat it
blocked the whole avenue, an 1 there
was very little chance for dancing.
Still those who were inclined to trip the
light fantastic toe persevered and danced
in spite of the difficulty. There was but
one expression and that was of delight
over tbe successful completion of this
work. For two years that street has
been in a deplorable condition. Tbe
e ravel was cut up and worn in holes so
tbat driving oyer it wts aim est impossi
ble. To see it transformed into such a
smooth, pleasant and magnificent drive
way is more than could be believed
almost and it elicited many expressions
of deliubt. Tne propertv owners now
intend to keep it in good condition and
they have appointed a commi'tee to pros
ecute all persons who drive heavily
loaded vehicles with narrow tires over it
and thus cut up tbe surface. This is
