Father Davis performing the ceremony.
Miss Mary Gribbons. of Davenport, was

Moline, was the groomsman. Last eve
ning Mr. and Mrs. Steckel were given a
reception at the residence of the bride's
parents, 312 Eist Twelfth street, Diven
port, after which they departed to a home
already prepared by Mr. Steckel in JMo
:ine. The main c u: house of the street rail
way company's building on Moline ave
nue is now that portion formerly used as
the stables, which has been completely
overhauled, and the motor cars will be
kept ia it hereafter, the tracks connect
ing the double track with it having bee n
a'tercd for that purpose, and Electrical
E agineer Fredericks will soon have the
overhead wire similarly changed. The
old car house will be used almost entirely

Hem. It is a fact that everybody would
not be apt to believe at first thought, but
it is nevertheless so, that there are now
on the lines of the company on this side
of the river, including motors, no less
than 65 cars, and as many perhaps, on
the Davenport side.
In Magistrate Wivill's court this morn
ing the ca3e of the people against Albert
A. Stanley, of Reynolds, charged with
horse stealing from S. Daxon, was dis
missed. William McEairy appeared for
the prosecution and Maj. J. M. Beards
ley for the defense. The evidence show
ed that there had been a bargain between
Stanley and Daxon for'the purchase of
the horse, and the only difficulty was
that Daxon refused to take his own notes,
which show Twelftree had become se
curity for bin upon, and had sold the
notes to Stanley. The latter after hav
ing obtained the hore presented Daxon
with the notes for payment instead of the
mom-y, which were refused by Daxon,
a nd Stanley endorsed the amount for the
purchase of the horse and retained the
animal. At the close of the trial Stanley
sued Daxon for the balance due upon the
notes, $37, and commenced proceedings
against Daxon at the January term of
me circuit court lor raise imprisonment,
claiming damages of $6,000.

The mean' temperature at Cairo during
the cold sea-sen that is, six weeks in Jan
uary and February is said to be 58 degs.
Fahrenheit. But this is in the open air;
in the houses the temperature ia not more
than 54 or 52 degs., aud often in the even
ing lower. The absence of fires makes all
the difficulty, for out of doors the air may
be aud often is charming, but on coming
in from the briiiht sunshine the atmos
phere of one's sitting room and bedroom J
seems chilly and prisonlike. There are,
generally speaking, no chimneys in Cairo,
even in the modern quarter. Each of the ho
tels has one or two open grates, but only one
or two. Southern countries, however, are
banded together so it seems to the shiver
ing northerner to keep up the delusion
that they have no cold weather; as they
have it not, why provide for it?
"Perhaps if one could have in Cairo an
open hearth and three sticks it would,
with all the other pleasures one finds here,
be too much would reach wickedness!"
was a remark we heard one winter. A
still more forcible exclamation issued from
the lips of a pilgrim from New York one
evening in January. Looking around her
sitting room upon the roses gathered that
day in the open air, upon the fly brushes
and fans and oriental decorations, this
misguided person moaned in an almost tear
ful voice, "Oh, for a blizzard and a fire!"
The reasonable traveler of course ought
to remember that with a climate which has
seven months of debilitating heat, and
three and a half additional months of sum
mer weather, the attention of the natives
is not stromdy turned toward devices for
warmth. This consideration, however,
does not make the tireless rooms agreeable
during the few weeks that remain. Con

How to Stake a Filter.
A very good filter, which is warranted to
serve its purposs fully, can be made by any
handy worker in common tools, out of ma
terial that usually lies close at hand. One
to be used where water does not run from
faucets in the house can be made in the
following manner: Take a wooden box,
three feet high and a foot square, open at
the top, with a shelf about a foot from the
bottom. Place a common stone jar on this
shelf and rest a flower pot in the mouth of
the jar. Let there be a hole neatly made
in the bottom of the jar, into which fit a
faucet, if possible, but if not, insert a cork
In the hole nt the bottom of the flower
pot place a sponge, and a large sponge at
the top of the jar in the opening, and lay a
thin piece of muslin over this 6ponge.
Then into the jar put alayerof clean white
sand (river sand is the best); three or four
quarts will 1 enough. On it put about
the same amount of pulverized charcoal
(animal if possible), aud liiiish at the top
of the jar with about a quart of small peb
bles. Under the shelf, with the corked
hole of the jar immediately over its mouth,
rots the pitcher which is to receive the
filtered water. Pour the water into the
flower pot, and the process of filtration at j
The flower pot should be cleaned once or
twice a week, as it receives the coarse ma
terial in the water, but the jnr needs no
attention oftener than once or twice a year.
This is an excellent, easy and very cheap
style of filter. Xew York Tribune.

Washington's Farewell Address.
A vexed question has been raised con
cerning the authorship of Washington's
farewell address. At present it appears
that it was the joint production of Wash
ington, Madison and Hamilton. Washing
ton drew up a rough draft of it about the
close of his first term, and requested Madi
son to revise and change it where be
thought best. He did so; but it was not
used then. . Afterward, near the close of
his second term, Washington placed it in
the hands of Hamilton and asked him to
Thus it received the mental strain of
three of our greatest Americans, yet it
breathes the spirit and embodies the sys
lem of policy iu which Washington had
acted throughout bin administration.
To quite an extent the counsels and
recommendations of this farewell address
have been adopted by our national manage
ment; and furtunate would it have been
for America if all had been adopted and
followed. Chant auquan.

If Hamlet Hil to Earn a Living!
What a lot Hamlet's would have been
had fortune thrown him upon his own re
sources for a livelihood! Under his hand
nothing would have prospered. Into any
vocation that he took up he would have
seen too far to follow it eagerly. Chang
ing from one to another, and finding none
quite fit, he would have lived as thousands
of men of imagination liveuow, one scarce
ly knows how.
And, in good sooth, the hero of fiction,
flung suddenly into the real world to make
his own way there, would pretty generally
have but such a vagrant, unfruitful career
as Hamlet's would have been; for the hero
of fiction has pretty generally had imagin
ation poured into bim, as it were, by the
barrelful, from the store of an author who
himself has it so much to spare that his
