Few, if any, of the people in Reck lal-
ami, perhaps, know, or ever Stop to
taiok, of the wcrk that is done, or the
money that is eipcnded every winter in
an industry which is so well known up
and down the river, and of which eo lit
t'e is known at home. Located as Rock
Island's winter harbors are in the ex
treme western part of the city, with i o
highway reaching them.the boat yards ot
Eahlke Bros, attract very little attention
from anvoce txc pt those who are direct
ly interested therein.
As has been tha custom for several eea
sons past an Aigus reporter visited the
yards yesterday lor the purpose of learn

that is being doi e there tLis seacon . P.
N. Kahlke, of ki ie dm of Eahlke Bros-,
took thevisitor in tow and steered him
about, among ard under the many dif

In rain, snow or sunshine it matters ru t

repaired and refitted under the supervis
ion of the Messrs. Kahlke, whose repu
tation for wcrk in this line is not con
fined to this sec. ion alone. Each boat is
expected to be dote at a certain lime
and unless wort was begun early and
pushed in all kir.ds of weather, so as to
have each craft in readiness by spring,
the result can be easily imagined.
At present H ere are nearly twice as
many boats as were ever on the ways and
in the harbor tefore, and upon nearly
i every one of tbi m some repairs are beii.g

be found in many cities of triple tte size
