The wide-awake citizens of the lower

last evening at the FraDklin hose house
and organized the West End Improve
ment association, the object being the
improvement of the lower part of the
city, all things in general and Uarnsey
squarj in particular. The organization
was completed with the election of the
Pn sident William Gahegan.

Th ; association has secured the store
room of Churlus Engcl on Fourth avenue
and Fifth street for its meetings, and will

At tbe meetirg of the Citizens Iin
prov mint association in its rooms in the
Mite tell & ijod'i building last night,
then whs not a quorum present and ac
cord ngly no business was transacted.
Tbe secretary of the association is in re
ceipt of a letter from a prominent pro
moting company in relaiion to the loca
tion of a tin plate factory in Rock Island.
The factory is from Wales, England, and
is djsirous of securing a location where
railroad facilities are good and where
cjal, steel and iron are cheap. Tbe com
pany states that it has an tffer from Chi
cago of a bonus of $150 for every man
employed; this would be about $75,000
In cash as it figures on employing about
500 men. Tbe plant would probably cost
25' 1.000, and no effort will be left un
done to secure it. Rock Inland cannot
of course, come up with a large cash
bonus, but coal and land for its location
can be had here on terms far more reason
able than in Chicago.
WHAT WE WANT.
l"r-vl-ion to tie Made lor a t.rent Need
in Hoik lIi:nd llouren fur All.
The scarcity of tenement houses in
Rot k Island has been a subject of fre
quent comment. The fact that
the city has not been backed by
the opportunity to provide bouses for all
new-comers has been as ofttn stated in
The Anors. a serious impediment to its
growth and advancement. Realizing the
gn at netd of tbe times, and determined
to provide it if the least encouragement
is offend to do so, Drs. Burth & Bub-
cocK have arranged to erect a number of
desirable bouses, the number to be rcgu
la.ed by tbe cemands for the same, on
Twentieth street between Tenth and
Twe'.fih avenues in their new addition to
Rjck Island. The location is convenient
tr the business centre and accessible to
tte manufacturing districts bv street
railway communication. Indeed, the
neighborhood could not be more advan
tageous and desirable, considering it in
a 1 points of view. The number of
h juses will depend entirely upon the de
rx.ands for the same that respond to the
public spirited gentlemen who haye
platted the addition. The number will
ba 6ix or eight, as the requirements may
Biggest and tbe rental be placed at tbe
lowest possible figure, consistent with
t ie cost of erection probably $15 to $20
per month. The houses are to be mod
em in all respects, and, considering tbe
alyantageous location, it is not to be
doubted they will find plenty of tenants.
Tbe improvement is just what Rock
Inland wants and needs, and if it is car
ried out as planned by the owners of the
a Jdition, it will be the placing of another

FEASTING ON A GUINEA HEN.
A Tidbit from the Barnyard That Rivals
the Game of Locollus' Table.
A guinea hen was bought and sold. It
was in a liltl market, tucked around the
corner in a liUle street somewhere beyond
the Darthmouth street bridge. The man
in charge is a cordial, genial soul, with
diplomatic qualities that would have made
the world his oyster had he been ordained
by fate to shine at courts and among em
bassadors. Instead, he sells oysters and
game and other things with a degree of
conversational suavity that is not to be
He is the friend of tbe guinea hen.
"What small bird have you that wUl
broil quickly?" be was asked.
"A quail. You want a quail, for quails
'' 1 don't want a qu.iil. I want some
thing that everybody wouldn't offer first
thing. What have you?"
A small, plump, yellow muated fowl was
briskly and upprcciatingly held forward.
"Here's a young guinea hen. Broiled,
you can't tell it from English pheasant.
Cheap, too; only forty cents."
Meekly he was answered, "But it isn't
game, and I want game."
"Well, now, 1 don't know about that,"
said the guinea lien man. "You might call
it game. It comes from out west and a
guinea hen has a remarkably wild nature.
She never lays an egg in a nest. No.
ma'am, she goes off by herself into a wild
thicket somewhere and lays it on the
ground and hides it. And you don't catch
her roosting in a shed. She liLes to got up
in a tree to roost too. I call a guinea hen
pretty gamy myself. Fine flavored meat
too: you can't tell it from English pheas
The vision of the guinea as a tame,
squawking, disagreeable, suckled, selfish,
conceited, ever-nt-home foreign intruder in
the barnyards of the land had not quite
vanished lefore the guinea man's descrip
tion of his game fowl. He was asked,
"Do many people like guineas?"
"Ma'am, they're fashionable," said the
guinea man, with compassion. "Lots of
people come here from the Back bay to get
a pair of them. In the winter, you see,
folks' tastes get kind of skewered up and
they want something different, and once
they hear of eating guineas they try 'em,
then their friends try 'em."
"Please split the fashionable thing ready
for broiling," said the purchaser.
"You will take it," said the guinea man.
with a joyful, conquering smile. "Cran
berry jelly is good with it," he added.
"Shall 1 send it?"
"No, I'll take it." No one else should
carry it. The purchaser walked slowly
across the bridge in the winter sunshine,
with the guinea half hidden in a paper bag
under her muff. There followed within
doors an inspiration with a charing dish.
'Twas no broil, as the marketman sug
gested. 'Twas a cream fricassee, athet
ically suited to the mediocre development
of gaminess in the guinea hen. There was
an olive and there was an appreciative
guest. The banquets of Lucullus were
vanquished in imagination. What were a
few peacocks' tongues in a Roman villa to
a whole guinea hen in a Boston flat? Bos
If She Were a Man.
Now, if I were a man, and I am grateful
that I am a woman, except when it rains,
and I have a muff, a couple of books, an
umbrella and a skirt to take care of, and
the umbrella wont stay straight, and the
books will slide afterward, and you have
to let your skirt down in the mud to
straighten things out, then I think that to
be a woman is "middling well so far as it
goes," but I would like to be a man and

Then I would not talk about woman's

I would tell my wife I would not wear

but has been carried to all the warmer
parts of the world, and it is now cultivated
in the tropical regions of America. The
flowers are small in size and grow in
large numbers in clusters to the very end
of the branches. The cloves we use are
the flowers gathered before they are
opened and while they are still green.
After being gat hered they are smoked by
a wood fire and then dried in the sun,
Each clove consists of two parts of a
round head, which are the four petals or
leaves of the flower rolled up, inclosing a
number of small stalks or filaments; the
other part of the clove is terminated with
four points and is, in fact, the (lower cup
of the unripe seed vessel. All these parts
may be distinctly seen if a few cloves are
soaked for a short time in hot water, whn
the leaves of the flower soften and unroll.
A Historic Diamond.
The Kohiuoor, one of the famous dia
monds of hL-tory, now forms one of the
crown jewels of Great Britain. The his
tory of this gem dates back to 1S26. It
originally weighed 793 carats, but was re
duced by unskillful cutting to 180 carats;
this while it was the property of the Em
peror Aurenzebe. It was captured by the
British troops during the Sikh mutiny and
was presented to Queen Victoria in 1850.
Since coming into Victoria's possession it
has been recut and now weighs but 106 1-10
carats. St. Ixrais Republic.

According to a French expert, the im

by chemical reagents. The marks of the
perspiration caused by the touch of the

silver on floors and by the vapor of osmlc
