About 85 of the Sunday tchool teach
er and pastors of the city gathered at the
First Baptist church last even'ng for the
purpose of taking the pre iminary steps
toward the organization of a Sunday
schod social union. On ac count of tbe
necessary abs; cce cccaiom d by sickness
of the originator of the i lan. Rev. Mr.
Marshall, the meetiDg was called to order
by Rev. John II. Kerr, wto nominated
S. D Cleland for chairman. The nomi
nation was made unanimous after which
Miss Annie Kirkpatiick was made secre
tary Rev. W. S. Marquis was first called on
for his ideas regarding ibe organiza
tion of tLe propc srd union, nrd he heartily
endorsed the movement. Ii his opinion
it would promote interest it the work and
by an interchange of 'ha opinions on dif
ferent methods the efficiency of all Sun
day school work would I promoted.
Aside from this be 6trong!y urged the ad
vantages to be derived in a eccial way
and puggested that different entertain
ments be provided to lend variety to it.
R v. John H Keir then t eing railed n
(or an expression of his views oa the sub
ject, thought it would be w 11, on account
of tbe, absence of Mr Mart) all, to confer
wi'h him and gain the benif t of that gen
tleman's ideas of the organization and
plans and scope of the work.
On motion of licv.Kerr it was resolved
thnt it was tbe sense of the meetiDg that
a Sunday school union be O'ganized, and
tbe chair appointed tbe following com
mittee on organization:
Central Pret-byterian, Miss Sarah John
ston; Christian, Miss Dora Kewton; Uni
ted Presbyterian, E. B. M' Kown; First
M. E, John Freeman; Broadway Pres
byterian, Dr J. W. S ewari; First Bap
tist, Miss Anna Kirkpatrick.
It is understood that Rev. II. C. Mar
shall will act as chairman of the commit
tee, which will meet subject to his call at
the Broadway Presbyterian church, Rey.

The New London Clothing- company to
day formally enters upon its career as one
of Rock Island's substantial, represents-tive-ero-ahead
business bouses. Having
been busy since coming in .o possession
of the original stock after it bad fallen
into tbe bands of the sheriff, tbe new
company has sicured an immense new
stock of goda, and as per more extended
announcement else where.is cow in readi
ness to receive its friends and to treat
tbem with characteristic old time cour
tesy, liberality and fair dealit g. Of the
new company little need be said by way
of introduction. J. B. Sax,
of Ottumwa, Iowa, one of the
men chiefly interested is practically a
Rock Island citizen. If tbe nearest and
best social ties can bind a n an, and his
8uccc8tfi.il business career is too well
known to require further comment. E.
I. Leveen, who has been asrociated with
tbe London from tbe time of its establish
ment in Rock Island, bears a reputation
as a hustler and has hrsts of friends. C.
E. Rice.his associate ia the management,
late of Ottumwa, liKe himself, is thor
oughly versed in tbe clothii g business,
and with this trio of wide-uwake busi
ness men in charge of the Li ados, and a
competent force of clerks, f.nd the lar
gest and most carefully selected stock of
goods ever brought to Rock Iland, the
new London ought surely to ilourish, and
it is not only the hope but the belief of

slipped in some way or other and struck
the baby in the eye, cutting tbe eye-ball

One Way to Roast a Turkey.
I was nmonfj the first to enter the new
city of Chandler, in Oklahoma not as a
lwinier, but .is a boomer's caterer, a voca
tion which I decidedly prefer. Business
was marvelously brisk while I was there,
and so far as booking orders and taking in
money were concerned I did well. But the
tortures of hunger and thirst we endured
were calculated to elraw profanity from tbe
most careful of men. The best meal we
hud was oft a wild turkey secured in some
inexplicable manner. There were no cook
ing uteuhils or appliances handy, but an
old pioneer who had been through the mill
before offered . to prepare the meal if al
lowed to share in it.
His offer whs accepted, and his efforts
were watched with much incredulity and
very little hope. He simply rolled the
bird, feathers and all, in mud until it was
caked completely. Then be roasted the
queer looking concern over a wood fire,
and when he thought it was done tore off
tbe baked mud and clay. Feathers and
skin came with the covering, leaving a
not very inviting, skinless but weli brown
ed bird. The loomer had timed the opera
tion to a nicety, the turkey was cooked to
a turn, and though it was of uncertain age,
was fairly tender and delicious in flavor.
Even making allowance for the sweet
sauce hunger Ls admitted to be, it is only
common fairness to describe that meal as
a success, and I have eaten many a worse
cooked and tougher bird in a first class
restaurant. Interview with an Oklahoma
A Boy's Attempt to Cheat the Treasury
Speaking of the redemption of paper
money, a very novel and interesting appli
cation was made the other day to the divi
sion of the treasury which has this business
in hand. The story as it came out was as
An ingenious youth employed to sweep
out a New York bank devoted attention for
a considerable period to gutheringaip the
crumbs from the tills in the shape of cor
ners and other bits of notes such as get
torn off and fall about in any place where
dollars are counted. In tbe course of time
lie got together a quantity of scraps of tbe
6ort Biifflcient to fiil a pint measure, and
he sent them on to the redemption bureau
at Washington in a box, with the explana
tion that they had been eaten Uy mice.
He stated the amount at $200, and asked
for new bills in exchange. His little game
was betrayed on the face of it by the fact
that the pieces forwarded represented, if
anything, not less than $1,000. The usual
affidavit was demanded from him, swear
ing to his lo&s; but he had not thought of
that requirement and lacked the nerve to
give it, luckily for himself. Washington,

Tl;e ft-jt Rtep in the operation of making
an ax ia the formation of the ax head with

are withdrawn from the furnace and are
taken to a powerful and somewhat compli

four distinct operations shaping the
metal to form the upper and lower part of
the ax, then tbe eye and finally doubling
the piece over so that the whole can be

seizing the partially fashioned pieces one
after another with a pair of tongs, and

Next the iron is put into a powerful
natural gas furnace and heated to a white
heat. Taken out, it goes under a tilt ham

This done, one blow from the "drop" and
the poleof the ax iscompletely and firmly

there is some superfluous metal adhering to
the edges, and forming what is technically
known as a "fin." To get rid of this fia
the axe is again heated in a furnace, and
then taketr in hand by a sawyer, who
trims the etuis and edges. The operator
has a glass in front of him to protect his
eyes from the sparks which fly off as the
hot metal is pressed against the rapidly

The steel for the blade, after being heated,
is cut by machinery and shaped with a die
It is then ready for welding. A groove is
cut in the edge of t he iron, the steel for the
blade inserted and the whole firmly welded
by machine hammers. Next comes the
operation of tempering. The steel portion
of the ax is heated by being inserted in
pots of molten lead, the blade only being
immersed. It is then cooled by dipping in
water and goes to the hands of the in
