The difference between the Mexican
torn ale properly prepared and the article
prepared by Tomalley & Co 's establish
ment in Rock Island is as wide and as
broud as th contrast between bright day
and gloomy niht. The establishment of
Searle's client in Rock Island and those
operated in the larger cities by true to
male makers, are as different as two
things could possibly be. In one cleanli
ness U rigidly observed, in the other
slovtnliness is the rule. This is the dif
ference hetween Chicago and Rock Island
as regards the temale industry. Now,
Rock Island is not Chicago by any means,
numerically speaking, nor does it expect
to sustain a tomale industry on th same
scale as that carried on in Chicago, but it
expects the article offered for food here
under the aame of tore ale to be as clean
and as wholesome. In a werd, what
gooa lor Chicago is none too
good for Rock Island especially when
it comes to food, and the gang which has
been preparing the tomale article in this
city in a manner and in surroundings
which constitute a disgrace and an out
rage, need ask no quarter from The
Argcs. This paper has seen fit to look
into the Quarters, methods and habits of
the temale industry in Rock Island and
has given the public the benefit of its
In contrast with this, the way in which
the article of food is made in Chicago
will be read with interest. An Inter

bales of clean white corn busks stood
along the wall. The best of these were

White corn on bs'-led in a broth made

Withm that again was placed the
bright crimson condiment make from tbe
Chili boiled and ground. To that was
added a Spanish olive or two, and then
two large cuts from a big fat chicken
thoroughly boiled, were placed in the
center, the whole securely brought to
gether, tied at both ends and round tbe
middle, and the package placed in a
steaming tin and kept there for hours
untd thoroughly cooked.
Everything about the process shaxed
ccrupulous cleanliness and care. The
chickens were the largest and best to be
bought on South Water street, and Mr.
Putman was already the largest purchaser
in the market, the packing bouses alone
excepted. He uses two barrels daily in
bis business, a larger consumption than
that of any of the great hotels.
His corn comes from the New England
mill a, and is boiled for hours in tbe broth

Chili peppers. TheBe last come to him

The proper mcde of eating it when a

it, open it out upon the palm of the left

the chicken and tortilla. Nothing should
be left tut the chicken botes, olive pits,
