The Colnmbian Committees Pro
Enronrasinc Reports From the Com
nHttea Former Mnb.erlptlon.
Inrrtaai d Today Work in
Q. M. Looslbt.
At last night's meiting of the Columbian
soliciting committees, the west end man
ufacturers and professional committees
together reported having secured 700
during the day, and Capt. Beardsley,
chairman of the w?st end committee, re
ported having appointed Messrs. J. A.
Genung and Al Orens members of that
committee, to assitt in pushing the good
work in the west end, and particularly in
the glass factory.
This morning Cspt Joseph Cameron,
of the ferry. Spencer, volunteered for 10
shares, showing hU confidence in the en
terprise. Probably the bet,t evidence of the solid
ity of the undertaking, however, is the
way our largest business men are increas
ing their original subscriptions, a move
ment which, while essential to the success
of the great undertaKing.is no less gratify
ing and reassuring. The Argus recently
spoke of Mr. McCf he's expressed willing
ness to increase his subscription from
$500 to $1,000. This morning when the
committee called on Oito Huber, of the
Citv brewery, that gentleman said that
while he had only written the name of
his father for $5(0 worth of stock, he
felt it no more than right thit he should
mike it $ l.OOO.and he did so. And a few
hours later Robert Wagner, of the Atlans
tic brewery, came coaly to the aid of the
enterprise by ptonising to raise his orig
inal subscription ta $1,000. This is busi,
ness, and the three additional subscrip
tions add $1,500 to Rock Island's list. If
our other business men will follow the ex
ample of these tlree it will not be long
before our f 30,000 is in sight. Additional

William Eerns, who represents the
Mcline element hicb delights in ob
structing public improvements has writ
ten a characterist c letter to the Molice
Dispatch beliltleing the enterprise and
objecting to it on the ground that it is to
be located in Rocx Island and is there
fore purely a Rocs Island aSair. To this
the Dispatch replies:
"Aft ith due respect to our correspondent.
let us say that all tbe matters and things
charged and outlined above, have been
canvassed by Mo'ine's contingent in the
commute of twiotv-tone and the dif
ferent conclusion have been reached.
The site la in Rck IsUrd, because Mo
line bad no available site that could be
procured; certainly no site that could be
procured so cheaply. At all events, the
site is nearer the business center of Mo
Woe than it is to the business center ot
Energy and effort in help'tDg along this
scheme to advert: se this locality, if suc
cessful in its ain. (and it will be if the
tffort to throttle it is downed) will teach
us that there is value in push and enter
prise when applied to measures tor the
public good, as ell as applied to our own
private affairs, to which latter we have
heretofore devoted ourselves exclusively.
Success iii this will make us the more
ready to help a' ong other public enter
prises, such as t:ie terminal railway and
bridge scheme, eXz.
The value of tbe site is known to be
reasonable, since some of our capitalists
some time sines declared themselves
ready to buy on their own account at the
price named but the offer is open only
to the Exposition association, and for the
purposes of that association.
Whatever tbe relations of the two
cities in the past, it strikes the Dispatch
that it is time for animosities and differ
ences to be laid aside now, and for the
people of both cities to learn that they
can make better and surer progress by
working together in all enterprises that
promise to rebovned to the interest of
the locality. From being the small and
somewhat dispised sister of the pair, Mo
line has grown so that Bbe can look Rock
Island squarely in the ryes, and as her
prospects are equal to if not belter than
those of her sister of slower growth, she
can Rfford to be not only proud, but dig
nified, and to shew her self-possession by
putting aside the jealousies and resent
ments which she has outgrown.
Moline sbou'd subscribe her full share
of the $100,000 stock of the Columbian
association, sdcI i he should work so earn
estly and actively for the whole enter
prise that she will be bound to reap her
share of the reward. This can't be done

"I am in favor of having the matter so
fixed that it will be impossible for the

left for the property to fall into the hands
of sharks who ate always laying for such
chances, and if the resolution is adopted
it will effectually prevent any such pro
ceedings." Others with wl am we have conversed

matter and finds th

oeiween su,000 and $90,000. There
are 126 good lots. They are now worth
about that much, judging from prices
prevailing in that locality, and he figures
that there is no danger of the stockholder
not getting back every cent invested.
EFFECTS OF"iYE STRAIN.
CMIdrea Who Are Hot t Blame for
The influence of the eyesight upon in
tellectual work is more recognized each
year by educators.both in this country and
Europe, and some of the most important
discussions among both teachers and phy
sicians bear upon this subject. One of
the most lucid articles treating of the
varied kinds of eye imperfections is "eye
strain in connection with headaches, neu
ralgia and nervous disturbances," contrib
uted by Charles Lincoln Smith, now stop
ping at the Harper house.
The most common cause of annoyance
and suffering is far sighted ness, having
its origin in tbe position of the principal
focus of paraellel rays of light behind the
retina; near sightedness, in which the
parellel rays of light are brought to focus
in front of the retina, astigmatism, due to
tbe irregular curvature of the cornea and
the insufficiency or weakness of muscles
of the eyeball. It is useful for both par
ents and teachers to recognize the ser
iousness of tbe symptoms of strain due to
any of these eye imperfections. From
far sightedness comes easy fatigue of
eyes, aching sensations in the eye
balls, flaaliy persistent and obstinate
muscular irritation and burning pain. The
eye strain is felt more particularly at the
end of the week. Near sighted people suf
fer equal discomfort from working any
length of time. Charles Lincoln Smith
adds that near sighted persons squint and
blink in order to see at a distance, and that
those 'dreamy eyes that haunt me ever,"
about which amorous swains become
poetic are usually near sighted, the dreamy
or staring appearance being due to the fact
that they see imperfectly at a distance.
Patients with astigmatism suffer very often
and Severely with headaches, dizziness,
"flickering" and other nervous complaints.
Those whose eyes are impaired by mus
cular weakness hive headache, pain
over the eyes, neuralgia, dizziness, nausea
and vague nervous disturbances. So ser
ious is the effect of any imperfection in
the eye that tbe examination of tbe eyes
of children of school age would seem to be
imperative. Many children have been re
buked for stupid neglect and disinclina
tion for study when they are simply usa
ble to endure the eye strain. Many have
been forced from intellectual labor to less
congenial occupation through the neglect
of eye imperfections. Tbe seasonable
remedy of the oculist is so practicable that
its benefit should not be denied the poorest
school child .

Hawes our heartfelt sympathy in this his
hour of atfiiction, assuring him that his
grief is shared by all ot his associates
among tbe head officers of this order, and
expressing the hope, which we believe is

lonely condition, and that ot r
common sorrow may but unite
