Apropos of the extensive improvement
which Moiine venue has experienced this
season and is on tergoing, it may be inter"
esting to the denizens of that thorough'
fare of the present day to know that that
portion of the street extending from
Twenty third street to Cable avenue was
originally opened by petition and im
proved by special assessment of a kaore
voluntary bind than the present one,
Hon. E P. Reynolds, who was at the
time road supervisor of "Rock Island
road district," has in bis possession tbe
original documents authorizing and order
ing the improvement. Previously, as
such officer, be bad opened a county
road, extending from near the present
residence of John Warner to tbe north
west corner of the Cable homestead,
thence northwesterly to the Sylvan water
bridge at Twenty-fourth street. This
highway is still available to the public
except that portion extending from tbe
northwest corner of tbe Cable property to
Twenty-fourth street, which has been
occupied by the Burlington railroad
through grants by ordinance, and tbe
Rock Island railroad bv virtue of occupy
ing tbe same without leave or hindrance
for a great many years.
Tbe o.iginsl order addressed jto Mr.
Reynolds beats dale of Juoe 27,fS51, or
just 40 years before the present im
provement was inaugurated, and is signed
by Joseph Conet as clerk, giviDg

gtnerally deecribid as "from Broadway
in Bailey Davenport's addition, to the
southeast corner of Harper's land." Tbe

The most interesting document is the

trating as it does how the pioneers of

put tbeir shoulder to tbe wheel to build
up communities. It reads:

It would have been hard for these orig
inal road buildets to have foreseen the
avenue of tcday, and it would be equally
hard for the great majority of these con
tributors, who have passed beyond, were
they to return to earth to find the few
landmarks then txisliog beside the im
portant thoroughfares of the present day;
and it must be a source of considerable
pride to the fear yet living to read tbeir's
among the list of names 40 years after
wardswho helped lay the foundation to
what now has btcome one of the princi
pal arteries of this city. Mr. Reynolds,
as supervisor, also opened a little later
what is now E m street, from Fifth ave
nue to the Bojer homestead, which was
likewise done by subscription, among the
larger ones, his being for $1,000, and
Ltmuel Andrews for 500.

The Rock Island public library board
held its regular monthly meeting last eve
ning with President 8outhwell in the
chair and Secretary Welch in bts place.
Tbe committee on having the Cita
logue printed reported that tbe work had
been done in . accordance with epeciflca
tiong acd the bill of tbe Union Printing
company for $555 for the same was al
a'lowed. It was ordered that those de
siring tbe catalogue be charged 25 cents
each for them.
The board had ' tbe assurance from
Mitchell & Lynde tbat the work of re
modeling the rooms will be completed by
Dec. 1. when tbe board will put in the
book racks, tables, desks and other fur
niture. This will require about 10 days'
time, and then the books will be put in
tbeir places and the rooms thrown open
to the public about the holidays.
Director J. W. Welch was designated
as committee of one with power to act
in the disposing of the ttovts formerly
used in the library rooms, and which will
not be needed in view of the introduction

Miss Annie Eva Fay, tho noted spirit
ualistic medium, who has achieved such
well earned success in England and the
east, will make her first appearance at
Harper's theatre Thanksgiving night,
Nov. 26. Miss Fay's work differs from
tbat of most so called mediums. She
appears on the stage. . without any
screens or darkened rooms. Miss Fay's
manifestations have been subject to the
most complete tests by scientists, and ate
pronounced by all alike inexplicable.
