The board of idncation meetg in ad
oarned session tonight to determine a
very important quest ion the providing
of a modern apparatus for furnishing beat
and ventilation in conneciii n wit'a tber
improvements attending the rec odsI ruc
tion of No 6 school buildicg. In line
with the tendency of the board as regards
all school buildings erected in Rock Isl
and in recent years, there U a de.ermina-
tion to provide only such modern dcvicts
as look to the comfort, safety and sani -
tary welfare of the public school pupils
To insure this the board has been looking
about considerably in order to act in ac
cordance with the best possible ad van
List Monday President Carter and Di
rector Bernhardt spent the entire day in
Chicago investigating the George H.
Hess system of heat and ventilation, and
Supt. Kcmble has been at RockftrJ the
pa9t two days looking into the Fuller &
Walton system, ia use ii public school
buildings ia that city.
The system so far used in Rock Mmd
schools are the Smead or Ruttan.and the
High school and Buildings 2 and 5 are
provided with it, while No. 7 has been
contracted for. Tonight the board meets
te settle the matter, and there is no ques
tion in connection with school building
construction that is of so great impor
tance as this one of making prevision for
kcat and ventilation.

Tbe performance of "The. Arkansas
Traveler" at Harper's theatre last evening
was not up to expectations. The young
er Cbanfrau is not the equ-U of his father
by any means, although of commanding
stage figure and excellent voice, which,
however, lacks development. Mr.
Cbanfrau, is not disposed to have
his company outshine him in bril
liancy, atd bis attraction would be re
ceived with better favor were he to sur
round himself with better artists. Tte
scenic effects were first class and while
it can hardly be said that the show was
of the ragged order it was not what tbe
public expecttd above the average.

"Tbe Cadi" at the opera house, the first
play ever written by an American humor
iat who has been read by thousands of
people, will be presented before a tris
city audience for the first time in Daven
port at the Burtis opera house Feb. 16.
The engagement is for oe night, Tues
day. We all know that Bill Nye is one
of our most prolific writers of humorous
matter; but it was not known until "The
Cadi" was presented in New Yerk that he
was capable of writing a play that could
stand the test of a long metropolitan run.
The fact that tbe play enjoyed a run of
125 performances would seem to indicate
that it was worthy of the serious consid
eration of theatre-goers.

Since reports from various pans of the
country show that "La Grippe" is rot
only among us, but evcrvwbere prevalent
and often from its complications very
serious, hence we would recommend two
of the most highly endorsed yet simple
and f&cient remedies known, Humphrey's
Specifics numbers one and seven Hun
dreds of people tiken with cough and in
fluenza and symptoms of what is now
ermed " La Grippe" have been speedily
and permanently cured by them. Num
ber one allays the fever, pain and inflam
mation, while number seven cures tbe
cough, hoarseness and sore throat. Hun
dreds of publishers, having found these
specifics of priceless value in their fam
ily, never hesitate to recommend them to
their many readers. Hear tbe unsolici
ted testimony of a few.

Catarrh Cant be Cared
with local applications, as they cannot
reach tbe seat of the disease. Catarrn is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you have to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on the blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrb
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of tbe best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of tbe best
tonics known, combined with the bes'
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. The perfect combina
tion of tbe two ingredients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Send for testimonial! free.

BorrittlM Nightmare Eapcrienred by an
Engineer Followed teatha.
Do you believe in dreams? I mean do
voa believe that dream ever foretell nnr
thinj;? 1 jsten to thi story, told by an old
railroad man in eastern Ma-ssju-husetts:
"There are fsve old tiuit-t-s like myself,"
said be, "who have not nu t with an ncr-i-dent
of one kind or another. In a thickly
populated section of ihe country like this,
especially if one is ilrivitnf ft liii-r, the acci
dents are likely to consist in running down
people walking upon or crossinji the track.
A!out a year and a half Hfter I w:vs mar
ried, and when I was the proud father of
the prettiest baby that ever lived, 1 had a
dream. I thought that I came home one
day and my wife told me that she especial
company to dinner, and, wh.-t is more, l.e
said, '1 have nothing in the house to eat.'
, "Very coolly I suggested that we kill ai.d
eat our baby. My proposition was accepts
ed, and I had started to (ind a knife to sac
rifice tbe little fellow when I awoke. It
was a Ion;? time before I would ullow my
self to go to sleep again for fear the horri
ble nihtinnre would return. The ne-ct
morning I told the dream to my v. ife. who
suggested that I had eaten too much be
fore going to lied. I took my train out as
usual that day ami forgot all alxmt the
dream until late in the afternoon, when il
recurred to me for an instant. We were
approaehint; a curve in the road, beyond
which v-as a crossing hidden from view by
a small piece of woodland. The firemen
was blowing the whistle and ringing the
"Just as we rounded the bend a farmer's
wagon was driven slowly upon the track.
I stopped and reversed the engine aa quick
ly as possible and every brakeman on the
tram answered our signal, but we were go
ing at a good rate of speed and wit h a hor
nble crash we struck the Wi'gon. We
walked back and found the driver dead,
his head battered almost, beyond recog
nition. It was the first time thatl he.d
killed a man, and I didn't get over the
fihock for a week. Somehow I couldn't
help believe that my horrible dram and
the accident had a Ivanng one upon the
"Several years afterward, when the baby
had come to lie quitea lioy, the samedream
came to me again, and I thought 1 was pre
paring to sacrifice the lad as on the former
occasion the baby The day fo'lowing v
ran aown n man wno was walking upon
the track. He plainly heard our signal
and saw us comiug. but he waited too long
and started to step aside just as we came
upon him. My boy was a vourig man
grown when for the third and last time '
had the dream. 1 was very much depressed
when I took my engine out the tiet U.iy
I was ou my nerve at the time and no
hand never for an instant left the throttle
or my eyes the track ahead of us. We were
almost home and had struck a three mile
siretch where the track was straight as an
arrow. Beyond .was a wide turn which we
always took slowly, for there we ap
proaehed the city limits ami a short ri;n
beyond brought us to the station OKI No
00 was bowling along at a lively rate as wt
struck the three mile stretch.
"My feeling of depression had left me
and I was in excellent spirits io think that
uo disaster had befallen me. At last my
nightmare wasnot to bring me disaster
Near theend of the stretch the road passed
through a short ravine, overhanging one
bank of which was a sturdy tree. As we
dashed into the cut t here was a scream of
demoniacal laughter, and a man, half
naked, swung from one of the outermost
branches and dropped gibbering upon the
track not twenty feet in front of the loco
motive. Since that time, thank God, 1
have not had the dream or met with an ac
cident." There is no doubt of the truth of thi
story Does it prove anything? Brooklyn
Betrothed Before Birth.
A strange practice is that of betrothing
a girl before she is born, conditionally, of
course. The Calmucs do so. But the girl
is allowed an opportunity on her bridal
morning of winning her freedom, should
she dislike the man her parents have
chosen for her. The marriage ceremony is
performed by the bride riding away at full
speed, pursued by the bridegroom, who
must capture her and bring her back; if
he fails to do so he is deemed unworthy of
her hand. Very rarely can a Calmnc lady
be overtaken unless she has a partiality for
her pursuer. San Francisco Examiner.
