Although thin is entirely an off year in
Illinois politics, and Rock Island In com
mon with other Illinois cities outside the
metropolis of the state, was spared the
turmoil and amiety of a heated political
contest, the returns from the 'states of
Iowa, Ohio, New York, Massachusetts,
Pennsylvania, etc , were awaited with a
great deal of int erest in the city, and large
crowds of people gathered about the news
paper and Jelegiaph offices, tnd especially
the Rock Inlaid and Harper houses.
where returns were received. The ex-
citement ws nor, as intense locally speak
ng, as it was during last fall's congres
sional election, cr the national and state
elections three years aeo. The receipt of
news from the si ates where elections were
ha1, however, wis attended by manifes
tations of approval or disapproval by the
respective parties as it happened to be.
At the Rock I (land house the domoc-
racy received the returns, as per arrange
ment of Chairman Wheelan, and the re
tounda of the hotel was parked from 8
o'clock in the evening until after mid
night. A bulletin board bad been pro
vided, and after the dispatches were read
they were posted so that they might be
read at leisure and compared, the ar
rangement being a very satisfactory one
in all respects.
At the Harper, where the republicans
had their love feut, no one seemed to be
in it but Boss Veils, who took general
charge of affairs and would permit no bul
letin be read until it passed his scrutiny.
The boss did withhold that soul destroy
ing whoop of his, which was put away
and labeled j ast about a. year ago, but
he made a good deal of noise just the
same, and the itranger who tarried at
the Harper last night would have been
very apt to have cracked a smile had he
been told that the man with the big hat
was one of President Harrison's civil ser
vice reform postmasters, who woul.l no
more think of bring guilty of offensive
partisanship thiir, he would of blacking

kdered. Extended reference baa been made
heretofore to the formation at Angus -tana
college of the Augus
tana University association, composed
of the alumni of the college, the faculty
and students, and outsiders who have
the interest of the institution at heart .
The object of . this association is to
raise the college to the dignity of a first
class university.and preliminary to this the
directors of the association, with J.B Oak
leaf, of Moline.have secured an option on
the H. P. Hull property on Moline ave
nue and Thirty-eighth street, with a view
to making it a university prk. The ar
rangements as to price, etc-, have been
made, anl the association has until Feb.
1 to decide whether the plan can bs car
ried through or not.
The property is directly in front of the
college and extends to Moline avtnue,
be-ng bounded on the west by the Gilpin
Moore property, and on the east by Thirty-eighth
street. It includes the Hull
residence and the bouee occupied by Man
ager Jesperson of the college. The loca
tion is just the thing for a col'eee park.
The price is understood to be lees than
$2 000 an acre
Tho association has 6 000 to raise be
fore the 1st of February, and come tall
hustling will be done to obtain the de
sired Amount. This park would not only
be of advantage to the college, but it
would be an ornament to the twin-cities,
and the association should receive the
hearty encouragement of citizens.
Mrlete ta Bread Slaking.
At the recent annual meeting of the
American Chemical society, held ia Wash
ington, u V. the question of the value
of carbonate of ammonia as a leavenibg
agent in bread, or as used in baking
powders came up for discussion, in which
Prof. Barker, of the Lniversiiy of Penn
sylvania, and p;e-itlen. of the society;
Dr. Kichardsor). late of the United States
department of agriculture in Washington;
L)r v uliam .McVluruw, late processor of
chemistry in the University of Illinois;
Dr. E H. Baruey, late chemist of the
Brooklyn, N. Y., board of health, and
professor of chemistry of the Ling Isl
and college, and others took part.
The consensus of opinion was over
whelming in favor of the employment of
ammonia It was stated as a fact that
ammonia rendered the trluten of the flour
mone soluble then the original gluten.
that the bread ia which thia action was
produced ry ctrbonate of ammo ia must
be tnore dit'cs ible and hence more health
ful, and btcause of the extreme volatility
of carbonate f f ammonia, and its com
plete expulsion from the bread in the
process of bv log. it is one of the most
useful, most healthful and most valuable
leavening agents known.
Thee conclusions are borne out by the
very elaborate and exhaustive experiments
made by I'rnf. J. w. Mallet, or the nnr
ersity of Virginia, which show conclu
sive ly that bread mtde with a baking pow
der in which one percent or carbonate or
ammonia n usert, in connection with
cream of tartar and soda, is not only of
uniformly better color and texture, but a
product more wholesome, because the
ammonia serves to neutralize any organic
or lactic acids present in the flour.

The routineof wark on a lightship ts quite
simple. At sunrise the watch lowers the
lights. At 6 a. m. the captain or the mate
stands In the doorway leading from the
cabin into the berthdeck and shouts, "All
handal" The men tumble out of their
bnnks and dress, breakfast being served at
twenty minutes past, 6. At half past 7
the lamps are removed from the lanterns
and taken below to be cleaned and filled.
In smooth weather this duty can be per
formed in about two hoars, but if the ves
sel is rolling and pitching the task may be
prolonged an hour or two. - -
When the lamps have been, returned to
the lanterns there remains nothing for the
crew to do except to clean ship and to k
on watch until sundown, when the lamps
are lighted and the lanterns hoisted. The
crew is divided into the captain's watch
and the mate's watch of five each. Twice
between spring and winter each watch
goes ashore for two months, so that each
member of the crew is aboard the lightship
eight months in the year. It is not be
lieved that they could stand the life longer
than this. In fact, many men throw up
their work as soon as they can get ashore.
Three members of the South Shoal crew,
have, however, seen unusually long terms,
of service twenty-one, nineteen and seven
teen years respectively, and others have
served on her a remarkably long time
when the desolate character of the service
is considered. This Is probably due to the
fact that the dangers of this exposed sta
tion warn off all but those inured to the
hardships of a seafaring life. The men
who have been there so long are old whale
men, accustomed to voyages of several
years' duration and to the perils of a whale
man's life. Gustav Kobbe in Century.
