The directors of the Muscatine Bridge
com piny have declared a stock dividend
of 15 per cent. This dividend of 15 per
centcn tbe 152,680 bridge stock and
amounts to $7,902 It is partial division
of tbe surplus on hand derived from vari
ous sources. The company received
152.6(0 from stock subscriptions. $56 -390
from tax collected and about $60,000
from tbe sale of bonds. The bridge cost
$167,(00 without the toll houses, signal
lamps and other equipments, besides
some tiprapping done since its comple
tion. There is a revival of the ancient rumor
that toe C, B. & Q. contemplates
changing its route through the city by
buildir g a roadway down the river bank
reacbii g it by way of the stub track
tnrougb Dimock, Gould & Co's grounds,
and ru ining thence along the tail race
and to a connection with the road'a pres
ent t rajas back of the Rock Island round
house. The expense of such a route
would be very large, and it is very doubt
ful if aij one toad would attempt it, un
less it were necessary to do so in order to
enter tle city. Ii is possible that a new
road, like the Jacksonville Southeastern,
might c.o it, either along or in connec
tion wi n otber roods. It would be a big
thing for the city if all the roads entering
Moline would go into such a scheme, va
cating tleir present rights of way. Mo
The Force of Habit.

A college professor and his daughter

the prolessor, wishing to express nega

"Father," said the daughter energet
ically, "yon shouldn't say 'nope, you
should sy no."
"I 6ujipose so, my dear," acquiesced
the fathi r. "It is the force of habit that
makes rre say nope." "
"Why, father, have yon always said
nope?' ir quired the young lady.
The fa ther reflected for a moment. A
dreamy ( mile lit np his features, and he
gentlyand peacefully murmured, "Yep."

Some of the English noliility were trav

speech in bis own defense.
. hodden Cloae of the Case.

dismiss the charges. An attempt to lay
this on tbe table was defeated. After
much debate llev. D. G. Wylie offered an

not approve Dr. Briggs' views the case be
dismissed in the interests of peace in tbe

ment, and the resolution was adopted as
amended 94 to 39. Briggs was warmly
congratulated, but Dr. Birch, chairman
of tbe prosecuting committee, gave notice
of an appeal. The presbytery then ad
journed to Monday.
