Why is it that some peop- e seem to
think that the sole aim and object of a
newspaper man's life la to boom his fel
low men and live upon the knowledge thut
he is doing good in the world ? An edi
tor's spac3 is worth so much, and is gen
erally sold for a very small p;r cent of its
actual value. A banker mabesa living by
using his money . How wou Id it look for
a well-to-do business man to run in occa
clonally and aek for m quarter? Curious
feelings would promenade .hrough the
brain of the average man were one of Lis
wealthy neighbors to come into the store
and ask for a sack of flour as a personal
favor. Yet the average nev spaper man
takea pleasure in giving h patrons an
occasional puff. It is when lie is censured
for not blowing up some nun who says
that money spent in advertising ia money,
thrown away, patience cease to be a vir
tue, and his habitual reserve and modesty
fall from him like chaff befcre the whirl
wind as it were. Ex.

The public schools adhered to their
time honored and very commendable
custom Wednesday afternoon of con
tributing to the poor of the ci'y. The

Mrs. H. B. Sudlow, as president of the
Rock Island Ladies' Relief society, had
previously instructed her ward managers
to report to the High school all families
who were known to be in want and dis
tress, and the consequence was that 70
barrels of vegetables and apples were diss
tributcd among the poor of the city

ing as an evidence of the noble work of
children in cooperation with the Ladies'
society. There are stiil some vegetables
left at the High school, and families in
need of thtm may have the same by call
ing at the High school between the hours
of 2 and 4 tomrrrow.
Tomorrow afternoon the sewiEg school

I Edward 8. Willard, the famous Eng
lish actor, is to appear at the Burtis opera
house at Davenport Tuesday evening in
"The Middleman." Many interesting
reminiscerc -s are told of Mr. Sillard.
During that portion of Elward 8Wil
lard's London career which was given up
to the playing of villain parts he was much
pointed out by 'bus men, cab drivers and
others as a very cold-blooded person in
deed . These fellows felt that a man who
was such a perfect villain on the stage,
must be "a bad W at heart, and tbey
hinted dark things about him and pre
tended to feel rather unsafe when be hap
pened near. The role that brought him
tbe most fame in this line wes that of the
"Spider" In ' The Silver King," and before
that piece was half through its run Mr.
Willard was known by everybody as "Tbe
One night be bad taken the 'bus as
usual from his home to the theatre and,
as usual, sat and chatted with the driv r.
Whtn the conductor came after his fare
Mr. Willard handed a coin over his shoul
der. The change was put into bis hand
and, simply by feeling it, Mr. Willard
detecte 1 a shortage.
"Sixpence more, please," he said, with
out looking around .
"I think that's right, sir'siid the con
ductor. "Sixpence more, please," said Mr. Wil
The conductor counted the change,
apologized and added the required six
pence. When Mr. Will,r i got down at
the end of the line he heard the driver
say to the conductor with ibfiaile d:
"wot a blooming m lg you must be to
try that on 'im. Don't you know who that
it? Why. that's 'the Spider.' Thai's
The proposition uide by the Dvcn
port milkmen to raite the price of milk to
6 cents per quart does not seem to be meet
ing with general favor among the patrons
of the dispensers of the lacteal fluid. Just
why they should raise the price at the
present lime does not set m clear to the
average cit z;n. Crops have b-;en good
and pasturage plentiful. The only object
'hey can have in raising the price is to
make larger profits. Davenport Tribune.
The above pretty much voices tbe sen

who are also at the mercy of a milk men's
