As good a republican as .there is in
Rock Island, 6ne who voted for Hon. W.
H Gest for congress three times and cMd
wt at he could to it fluence others to do
the same, said with an air of disgust Tes
ter la; in discussing the suit commenced
by the late congressman against the city
to recover 53.000 damages, in conse
qutnee of the changes made by the
city in establishing a permanent grade in
front of his Secocd avenue residence prop
erty, as made necessary by the paving
improvement: ' It looks to me
as if the ex-congress-man was trying to
embarrass the city in the matter of public
imp-ovements by demanding thousands
of d jllara, while the new congressman is
enccuragiog public improvements and
m&k.ng the city a present of ?25.000 to
help tbem along. Mark the difference.
One has been honored by two terms in
congress, while the other has just entered
upon bis first term, but republican though
I be, I hope it will not be his last, and
just I etween ourselves I don't believe it
will. I'm a republican all right enough,
but I wouldn't vote for a man of the nar
row e jirit of Gmi again under any cir
cumstancrs. I am for public improve
ments and I baye no use for the man who
opposes thtm. On the other hand the
citizen who is broad enough in his views
to make personal sacrifice for the up
buildicg of the city, aud not only this,
but go further and contribute to the ex
tent of $25,000 to further those ends, will
always command my friendship. One
cannot help but maik the contrast be
tween the ex congressman and the pres
ent con 'res9man."
At 5 :0 o'clock last evening at St.
Joseph's church, Rev. Father Maekin
performtd the ce ramony which united the
destinies of Miss Bridget Kane, of this

The couple were attended by Thorn aB
Stxton at.d Miss Kate Bums, and the
ceremony at the church was witnessed by
a large number of friends of the contract
ing parties Immediately after the cere
mony the bridal party was driven to the
bride's home at 800 Third avenue, where
a delicious wedding supper was in wait
ing, and t ) which a large number of in
vited guest9 sat down, the remainder of the
evening being passed in making merry
over the joyous event. The bride is well -
known and highly respected, and the
groom is a popular engineer in the em
ploy of We yerhauser & Djnkmann. The
happy coufle were the recipients of many
handsome t.nd costly presents which are
indicative of the high esteem in wbtcb
they both are held. Tbey will at once go
to housekeeping in a home at the corner
of Fourth avening and Seventh street
which has been furnished by the groom
for the receation of his bride.

THE GILPIXS GONE. 25
Another VlMteer Hose Company
Disband rroapeet" 'or Two Xfw
rata Ones in tne Bpring-A Houwe
f..r tue Cliirf.
One by one the old voluttesr hose
companies are disbanding. The Gilpins
yestcrdiy sold their team and the paid
man wiio has been doing service there has
been removed to the Central engine house.
This leaves the east end of the city with
out any paid company nearer than the
Centrals. Owing to this condition of
affairs the city council will in all proba
bility provide a paid company for the
eastern district which will probably be
located on Moline avenue in the
vicinity of TwentT-eighth street.
The Franklins in the lower part
of the city are said to be ready to dispose
of their outfit to the city on reasonable
terms, and if the transfer would be made
and a Pfcid company be located some
where iithat vicinity it would give Rock
Island a system of fire protection that
would be not only a source of pride to
our citizens, but an encouragement to
manufacturers to locate in our midst. A
valuable suggestion in regard to the mat
ter of the chief of the department be
ing able tq respond promptly at all times
so as to be on the scene as soon as, if not
before, the arrival of the
companyies has been made to the effect
that ib city build a cottage for the chief
in the rear of theCentral engine houss so
that be cculd be on hand at all times.
The idea would not be a bad one, and as
there is ample room for the erection of
a cottage in the place mentioned it might
be looked upon with favor by the city
council. The mitter of fire protection is
one of vast importance to any city, and
Rock Island's interests in this respect
cannot be too well guarded.
Individuality In Art.
Let six great painters paint a portrait or
a landscape. Koch will faithfully repro
duce, yet each will be different. It is the
portrait or the landscape plus the individ
uality of the artist. No two alike, yet all
.faithful, all artistic. Six photographs
would be exact reproductions and exactly
alike. But they would be nature copied,
while art is nature idealized. In the same
manners dead horse stuffed would be truer
to nature, but the sculptured horse would
be truer art. Music.
One of DUraeli'a Bright Remarks.
A very bright remark has been credited
to the late Karl of Beaconsfield. When
quite young he heard a clever woman com
pliment an ignorant man on his good sense.
"I don't wonder," "said young Disraeli,
quick as a flash, "at his possession of a
large stock of good sense; he never spends
any." Once a Year.
"They say that Littleby is courting
that great tall girl, Miss riigh-n .
"1 should like to see him kissing her
good night when he's leaving her."
"He never says good night."
"No; he shakes hands with her and
looks at her and says 'so long.' " Yar
They Never Fail.

"I have been usine Brandreth's Pills for
the last 15 years. There is nothing equal
to tbem as blood purifiers and liver regu
lators. But I wish to state how remark
ably tbey cure rheumatism, arid how
easily; I was affected by rheumatism in
the lees. My business (wholesale fish
dealer) naturally leads me to damp places.
I could not walk, and at night I suffered
fearfully; I tried balsams, sarsaparillas
and all kinds of tinctures, but they did
me no good and I was afraid of being a
cripple. I finally commenced using
Brandreth's Pills. I took two every
night for ten nights, then I began to im
prove. I continued taking them for forty
days and I got entirely well. Now, when
ever sick. I take Brandreth's Pills. They
