Of the many Rock Island people whose
homes are here, but whaee business fre
qaenily calls thtm from the city tor ex
tended intervals, there are probably none
who feel a deeper sense of the c'r.y's
worth er are hippier when tbey get back
than Georee F. Dowaes, of the contract
ing firm of E. P. Reynolds & Co. "I ve
just not Wk from tl ree months spent in
Wymore, Neb ," said Mr. Downes this
morninsr, "and am rff tonight for ihe
est to be gone tome time, and
while I have beer, away this time at
whit might DHturi.r.y be expected to

feese of public iuipr ivcments, I can see
Uck It-land's steady gain and I war.t to
sty that every time 1 come hack here I
am premier of the o'd town than tver bo

mark as this to you i few months ago,
and I haven't chan;( d my mind a p trticle,
and from appearances I don't think I ever
will. Rock Island i-i getting there if she
never did before in ht-r history. She has
grown 10 years tetter looking and 10
years better off, yes better in every way
in the past three yetrs. The only thing
that bothers me s tht I can't get a
chance to stay here loneer at a time.
I just get bnck ard hink about er joyins
a few weeks at bone when 1 h.ve to be
moving hfjitin tha .'s the worst of it."
Mr. Downes' mits on at Wymore was to
superintend the construction of a ntw
well for an improved water supply for
the waterworks o" thai city. E. P.
Reynolds, Jr . forner'iy of this city, is
mayor of Wymore, au 1 when the city
was looking about tor the light kind of a
man to oversee the work, Mr. Downes was
selected. At a re.-ent meeting of the
VVjruore council ihe chief subject of
discussion was the well, which had just
been completed by .Vtr. Downs, who ac
cording to the Wyn oreon, was made the
lion of the occasion The report of Mr.
Downes was read, showing a total expend
i lire of $3,415.85, and ordered spread
upon the minutes, und finally upon mo
tion the council adjourned to eximine the
weil, and upon reassembling the follow
ing resolution was presented and unani
Be it Resolved, By the mayor and city
council of Wymore, Neb., mat the thanks
of the city of Wymore are due and are
hereby tendered to George F. Downes
for the able aod economical manner in

tion of the well for an improved water
supply for this city, that the whole im
provement is hereby approved and ac
cepted, and that the city clerk 19 hereby
instructed to transmit to Mr. Downes a
certified copy of this resolution, and to
spread the same upon the minutes of the
body. And on m( tian of Aid. i?cbmitz

Highly rirased Andi. nee coating
Varney's realistic and successful melo
drama, "The Vendetta," was giyen its
first presentation before a Rock Island
audience last evening and it gave the
highest satisfaction. The play is some
thing after the design of "Monte Cristo'
and "Fabio Romani," but the plot while
more intricate is nevertheless more
comprebt nsive when developed by such
an txcellent company as that with which
Mr. Varney has provided it. W. A.
Wbiiecar, the star of the company, is an
actor in the highest sense of the word,
and he was complimented last night by a
tremendous recall at the end of the third
ast. Itwas u royal tribute such as Mr.
NY uiitciir was deserving of and such as
we dou't believe has ever been paid an
aciarina production cf ibis kind in Rock
Island before. That Mr. Whitecar ap
preciated the reception thus ac
corded him was shown in the 6plendid
little speech be made the audience
expressive of the same. The company,
it should be said. was sirongin every par
ticular. The scenic tffects are unusually
fine, especially the ship scene, but the
action does not, like many of our mod
ern spectacular shows, depend entirely
upon tbtm, although they are essential
to Mr. Varney's adaptation of it. U is to
be hoptd Mr. Yaruey may see tit t. again
visit Rock Island, and if he does he may
feel assured of a packed house

J "A Barrel of Money." which will be at.
Harper's theatre Saturday evening Jan.
23, is tnus commented upon by the Chi
cago Tribune: " "A Barrel of Money,' by
j Herbert Hall Winslow, was opened at the
People's Sunday afternoon and a barrel
of fun and excitimant was generously
distributed among a large audience. The
play is of a popular comedy-dram style
with plenty of singing and dancing, a real
plot, and a strong realistic miil scene,
with engine and machinery in full opera
lion. The company is a decidedly good
! one throughout."
Mark Twain once wrote a pretty tale
in which a prince, in a boyish freak,
changed garments with a little pauper,
and suffered a good many misadventures
after he tired of the subsequent change
of position, or before he could persuade
anyone that he was really the prince, and
notaraggul impostor. Mrs. Abby Sage
Richardson dramatized the story, little
Elsie Leslie impersonated the royal and
the ragged lads. New York approved and
Mark Twain rejoiced. This city will
have the opportunity to do both when
Elsie Leslie will present the play at the
Burtis next Saturday, Jan. 23
