We did not txpect a successful trip
in point of victories when we started
out," said President Hodges this morninp,
"indeed. I hnve felt from the first that if
our bojs ctme home with a third yes, a
fifth of thi- games to our credit, we ought
to be satu lied, and this I believe they will
do. We Harted out under the disadan
tase of not having practiced together.and
further tht n that, with a known weakness
in the box. for we have regarded Baxen
dale in the liitht of an experiment, al
though we bad assurances sufficient to
warrant the belief that we miebt Lave in
him va find, or i.henom,' as they say in
base ball. Our salary limit does not ad
mit of hit ing high priced men, and has
consequently deprived us of some first
class met with whom we were corre
sponding. Nevertheless we have some
good men in view, and the best will yet
be &ecur d. and all men unable to fill
their posit ons properly, released. When

heading f f The Aboub base ball column
on Thurs lay evening, "Will Win Without

about ho-v Moline has gotten the worst
of it in the joint base ball organization,
taking occasion at the same time to
note the fact, that the club did not "win
without Wynn." While the latter obser
vation in undoubtedly true, Mr. Allz is
unduly nensitiye over a mere bit of
pleasantry. Rock Island has no objec
tion whatever to Wynn, neither does The
Angus b lieve Manager Sage has. Wynn
should huye shown up Thursday morning
and gone to Peoria with the boys, and
there wo ild have been no occasion for
the joke to which The Arocs yielded to
the pressure of circumstances to make.

A down-town married woman swore

Davenport and Moline have followed the

the first of these two mentioned
cities has gone one better and provided
for systematic street sweeping. Roc's
Island this year will doubtless mske pro
vision for having its pavement swept all
the season round as well as during the
pproach of elections, as was the case
spring. But there is something just
essential as a Btreet sweeper and in this
Rock Island may as well lead as it did in
paving and probably will. That is the
matter of systematic sprinkling. All
pities having any extent of pavement are
looking into this subject now, and Rock
Island will be in it ia this as in all
things. Without inten.ional reflection I
those who have heretofore attended to
sprinkling of the streets under private
contract, the city is greatly in need of a
uniform system of sprinkling. A num
ber of our aldermen have been spoken to
on the subject by The Ai ocs, and some
of the councilmen have already given it
attention, even in so far as to communi
cate with the owners of popular contriv
ances for attaining the end so much de
sired. One alderman in particular has
illustrated price lists of an arrangement
which is meeting with favor in many of
the larger cities, including Louisville and
Indianapolis, and which is controlled by
what is known as the United Tramway
company. This cocststs of a motor es
pecially des'gn d for the purpose and
which is operated by means of a trolley
pole attached to the electric railway cur
rent. It runs on schedule time and
sprinkles the entire street from curb to
curb. The contrivance does its work
thoroughly and at regular intervals as
a matter of course, but there is objection
to it on the ground that It only insures
the sprinkling of streets on which there
are electric railways.
Another scheme which is popular is the
Studebaker combination known as
"Nisgara on Wheels," and which works
admirably. The wagons operated in
connection with this arrangement are
handsomely painted and an ornament to
The city will sconer or later have to
undertake the matter of street sprinkling,
if it is to be done with satisfaction to all,
and the council may as well face the duty
now as at any time.
Undoubtedly needs a thorough cleansing
this season to expel impurities, kerp up
the health-tone and prevent disease. You
should take Hood's Sarsaparilla. the best
blood purifier and system tonic. It is
unequalled in positive medicinal merit.
Hood's Fills are purely vegetable, per
fectly harmless, effective, but do not cause
pain or gripe. Be sure to get Hood's.
