Pastry Without Butter.
Light, flaky and digestible pis crust and all kinds of
fine pastry can be made with Dr. Price's Cream Baking Pow
' tier without butter or with one half the usual portion, if pre
ferred, or with a small quantity of lard or other shortening
as desired. Pie crust made in this way is more wholesome
and digestible besides being more economical and easier pre
pared in addition to saving alf the butter if desired. One
third the flour is also dispensed with, and the crust is rolled
that much thinner, the raising qualities of Dr. Price's Powder
swelling it to the requisite thickness. Those who enjoy the
appetizing qualities of the deliciou.3 home made pie will
rejoice to know this secret.

that contains the white of eggs.
Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is re
ported by all authorities as free from Ammonia,
Alum, or any other adulterant. In fact, the

A tough looking citizen evidently a
stranger in Rock Island, who afterwards
gave his name as Charles Robbins, went
into Hoppe's tailoring establ lehment last
evening and applied for a' position. Mr.
Hoppe did not know tbe man and did not
like bis appearance, and be told him he
had no work for him. Thereupon the
ft How became abusive and addressed a
vile and insulting epithet to Mr. Hoppe,
who, though nt physically the match
for him gathered him up and threw him
out of the door. The stranger returned
and grappling with Mr." Hoppe both
fell to the fl or with Mr. Hoppe in the
least advantageous position, but he soon
recovered himself and was master of the
situation, the stranger breaking away and

There was a meeting of tbe leading
local republicans of this city last night a
W. J. Eatrikin'a office, Mr. Entrikin pre
siding. The Ohio situation was reviewed
and preliminary plans laid for the coming
campaign in this district. It was em
phatically denied by those who are in
position to know that C. II. Deere is a
candidate for the congressional nomina
tion. There was a hopeful feeling mini
fest regarding tbe outlook for next year,
though no business of a very definite
character was transacted. Moline Republican-Journal.
With regard to the above The Argus
has it from an undisputable source that
the meeting above referred to was primar
ily to raise boodle to help McEinley out
in Ohio, and that incidently the dis

up. Whether the true object of the meet
ing succeeded or not is not known, or how
much the contributions amounted to, if
there were any. The result of the Ohio i
campaign is too well defined to be affected
by the action of the Moline moneyed men

also served on Sheriff Gordon this after
noon, but these suits it is thought will
not affect the above mentioned arrange

Hand aged tlie Wrong Arm.
At the lower end of Madison square a
few evenings ago I encountered a profes
sional beggar, who was evidently an old
timer. He was forty years old and a giant
in stature. There was a six weeks' growth
of beard on his face, his hair was long and
matted and his dress was in keeping with
bis role of abject poverty. His left hand
and forearm were wrapped in an immense
bandage ami carried in a sling. "Please,
sir, my arm was crushed in a railroad ac
cident, and I have not been able to work
for two months. My wife and five little
ones are starving. Yes, sir, actually starv
ing, and they will bless you in their pray
ers if you will give me a penny to buy them
This was his appeal, and it yielded a
dime, for which he was profusely thank
ful. The next evening I met the same
man four blocks higher up Broadway.
While he was repeating the appeal 1 no
ticed that it was his right hand and arm
he carried in a sling this time, while the
left one was sound and well. "Giving
your other arm a rest this evening?" I
"Yes, it gets tired carrying it in a sling
all night." He then replied without think
ing of tbe admission he was making, but
iu a moment be realized tbe blunder he bad
made and tried to explain the situation by
saying that he had been knocked down by
a heavy truck that day and had broken his
right arm. The next day I was passing
through Madison square and discovered my
friend of tbe injured arms sitting on a
bench smoking a pipe and evidently feeling
very much pleased with himself and all the
world. "How are the injured arms?" I
asked. The slings and bandages had dis
appeared. The old 'man was not on duty.
"Are your wife and children starving yet?"
"Oh, it's you, is it? What do you want
to go gettin on to a man like that fori I
ain't done you no harm. I'm try in to earn
an honest living." I promised not to ex
pose him to the police and he resumed his
pipe. New York Cor. Chicago Herald.
