Tbe regular monthly meeting of the
Rock Island Cit;z;ns' Improvement asso
ciation wss teld last eveniDg with Presi
dent Jack sot in the chair. The special
order of the evening was an address by
Dr. C. T. Lii dley, of Davenport, on the
subject of fire ar's in connection with the
proposed Twin-Ciiy Columbian exposi
tion. Dr. L ndley presented his views in
tbe shApe of an informal little talk and
the members of the association were free
to Kt-k him ljuestions, and ibe result was
tht many in ert sting and valuable ideas

received tl e proper representation.
The CeottrniKl txposi:inn at Phila
delphia in It 76 was larcly responsible
for the origin of this later study and de
velopment ol art. People who attend
expositions go to see the unusual, tbe
wonderful, the beautiful, more than to
witness a Ci mpetitive exhibit of those
things that are about them in their evtry
dy life Tl ey desire to see s- mething
j that is attractive a feast to the eyes.
As the more attractive and artistic in de
sign and workmanship the merchant's dis
play of his goods, the better his sales, so
much more would be the attendance upon
an exposition devoted primarily to the
beauties and wonders of art.
Practically speaking, tbe doctor said
tbe art deparment of the exposition could
be provided for on an economical basis
and need be but a plain room without
wicdows and illuminated solely by a sky
light in the roof, a building with walls
15 feet bih aid covered with plain terra
cotta ppper, while at night the room
could be nicely illuminated by means of
Speaking of the advantages of such an
exposition fram a business stand point, the
doctor expressed his opinion that there
were within t radius of 200 miles of Rock
atd, 2,001 people who handle the
brush. In the work of each
one of these people there are
at least 10 people directly interested,
who would be attracted to an exposition
where his or her work was to be pre
sented in contrast with that
of other ar.ists. It was the doctor's
idea that in trranging for the art display
there be inducements held out, not only
for the cul.ured artist and the ama
teur, tut for skill and science in photo
graphy, in sculpture, and above all for kin
dergarten wo-k. The displayshould begin
at thejprimaty department and the work
of our public school children should have
a prominent place. The best work of
8,000 orlO, OX) school children would
not only be a novel feature, but one that
would induct as many people as anything
The doctor's presentation of the sub
ject was exceedingly comprehensive, and
awakened mach interest, and remarks
were alsojmade by H. D. Folsom, Wil
liam Jacksonnand E. H. Gayer, and at
the close a vc te of thanks was unani
mously tendered Dr. Lindley for his
presence and remarks.

Hiss' motion, instructing the secretary
to collect alii dues from n: embers and re-
a rt all delii quents at tbe next meet

charge of the Spencer square con

until ntxt Thursday evening, when it is
expected the committee on the proposed
syndicate ' to purchase the Davenport
lands for manufacturing purposes will
have an important report to present.

C K. Petcher, who has been visiting
with friends in the city the past few
days, returned to his borne in Chicago'
this morning. Mr. Petcher is just recov
ering from a case similar to what is
known among cattle as "lumpy j w,"
which is the nineteenth case of its kind
in a human being. He was taken sick on
Jan. 20 last, his only visible symptoms
being sore lips and swollen glands of tbe
throat. He grew gradually worse, and
after consulting a prominent physician
in Chicago he was advised to go to a
north side German hospital where he
was taken in charge by Dr. Goldstone
and two other prominent physicians, and
the case wis watched with interest by the
medical fraternity in that jcity. The
glands continued to sell and the 'disease
developed in a most malignant frrr.
Different remedies were tried, but nothing
bad any pi rm-tnent i ff .cr.
Tbe doctors finally concluded tl;at an
operation w iu'uI lie necessary, and tl .t

He was t-.kendown with the disease
