A few m )nths ago the Moline Dispatch
published a lone article in which it ad
vocated the building af a bridge over the
river opposite Gilbert. The Tribune at
that time SKid that the' plan was infeas

of the railroads. The route is impracti
cable aod would cost thousands of dol
lars. The only place for a bridge is at
the lower end of town. There the trans
fer company could get plenty of ground
for tracks. We want another bridge
and want it bad. The business men of
Davenport would work for a bridge at
the lower ecd of town and make it a suc
cess. Let the company that is talked of
put in their best licks for a bridge in
west Davenport and they will gain the
support of every citizen of Davenport

Does it Contain Ammonia?
The charge is being made that the Royal Baking
Powder contains ammonia. "We would have supposed that
the emphatic condemnation of ammonia taking powders
by the most eminent physicians throughout the land, and
the fact of the three leading chemist's of Minnesota mak
ing their report to the Senate Committee recently showing
that bread baked with the "Royal" contained ammonia
and- the hostility now being manifested by the public
against all ammonia and alum baking powders would have
driven them permanently from the market. ' ' ' " 1
In view of the fact that Baking Powder has become
an indispensable article ia every kitchen, it is gratifying
to know that there are brands in the market to which no
suspicion of any kind has ever attache!. Dr. Price's

" Senator Sherman Happy.
Mansfield, O , Nov. 4. In an inter
view with Senator Sherman last night,
by a United Press representations, on the
result or the election in Ohio, the senator
said: "It is a glorious victory. I have
cause to believe that McKinley has been
elected by over 15,000 plurality and that
the legislature is safely Republican. The
result, whatever it may be, will have an
important influence upon future can
vasses and elections. The two issues, free
coinage and a protective tariff, were never
before presented so distinctly to the peo
ple of a state as tbey have been to the peo
ple oiumo. me new ballot system has
been tried with many misgivings in beta
parties, but the experiment was success
ful, and I believe has come to stay."

In at New York Apartment House.
The janitor of oar apartment tightened
the knot of his scarf, dusted with a silk
handkerchief his patent leather gaiters,
threw languidly his half smoked Havana
cigar into the ash cup of silver, waited
courteously for tpe last echoes of a reverie
by Chopin played at the piano by his
daughter with aad blue eyes, waited with
eloquent silence until madam had raised
her head from Crane'a "Renascence," and
said: "There are signs of a rebellion in my
domain. The third story has a nightin
gale that yells at daybreak, the fifth had
visitors until 10:10 last night, and the sixth
May, let me whisper to your mother
had a baby this morning." "Well, dear,
warn the third and fifth, but notify the
sixth that we shall want tpe rooms Mon
day, otherwise this house will quickly be

Iler Occasional Treat.
At a recent informal gathering of friends
at the hospitable residence of a prominent
official the conversation turned on the fu
tility of indulging one's anger over trivial
annoyances. The hostess, one of Wash
ington's cleverest and most popular social
leaders, though somewhat noted for her
outspoken manner, was inclined to debate
the subject a little and remarked: "Occa
sionally when I get real angry it's a treat
for me to say just what I think."
"That's so," remarked her husband dry
ly, "and she thinks it her treat pretty of
ten." Washington Post.
