W riding walks will lead to the summit of
the tower. Contracts were also let for
two summer pavilions of smaller dimen

The m:rry -go -round which ia to be
among ttie tower amusements, arrived
la: t night and will be erected in time for
Saturday if possible. It will carry 40
pi. rsons , and itis proposed to operate it by
electricity although that power will not
be applied at once.
In order to protect the grounds and
bt ildings as far as possible. President
Leuderhack has caused the following
ru es of order to be posted:
These grounds and buildings are for the
pi rasure and accommodation of the pub

se vc the following:
Do Lot deface the buildings bv writing
oi the wails or cutting the woodwork.
Gen'lemen will please not spit tobacco
on the floors or porches.
Do not destroy the trees and blossoms
or other property of the company.
We cannot maintain these grounds and
bi ildings without the co-operation of the
public, and trust they will treat them
witn the same care they would their own
The n quests on the part of the com
pany, evincing as they do, pride in the
prnxrtv, should, and doubtless will, meet
w.th the co-operation of all orderly dis
pi sid people.
Although the improvements at the
tower will not be completed by Saturday
y t the company is straining every effort
j to tet thi m as far along as possible by
ttat time, which is to be the occasion of
tho Woodmen log rollinp. The company

There is ceitainly no better or more
accessible place for picnic gr. unds
thtn the tower, and now that the season
to Sunday school picnics is upon us, it
wi uld be a good plan for the syndicate to
ar ange a series of denomination union
picnics to the tower, that is, to provide cx-cu-ston
rates to Sunday School scholars
of the three cities. It wouid be a nice
idea to have the Methodist Sunday schools
of Rock Island, Moline and Daven
port join in a picnic at one time, the
Catholics at another, the Episcopalians
at another, the Presbyterians at another,

now it could bring these Sunday Schools

together, at a given point and take them

Cushman made his debut in the I.-L
league yesterday with the Twin Citys at
Joliet, and though the boys lost the game
to the Convicts the work of both pitchers
was good. The home team finished the
season in sixth place, the Hautentauts
slipping into fi'th place by a scratch.
The new season opens today with the
home club at Terre Haute. Q'jincy and
Rockford laying off until Sunday.
It is hoped that the new double 3eason
plan may prove a benefit to the league,
but TrtB Argus sees no reason to deviate
from its former position that the single

Mayor McConochie has notified Pres
ident. Hodges that he is in receipt of
the resolutions from the mass meeting
held a few days ago, and states that
some :ction will be taken in regard to
the playing of games on Sunday.
If the mayor should go to the extent
of an attempt to suppress Sunday games
in Rock Island entirely, it would un
doubtedly bring about the death of the
local club, and the loss of the money in

The Mirror in speaking of Biily Cat
tun's recent practice games at Chicago,
has the fallowing:
"Uatton made an excellent showing
during his games with Slosson. I was
present one night when he led off in the
fir.-t inning with a run of 9:! and later on
followed this with 116. He led the stu
dent all along fur the first half of the
game. Cotton showed by his p.ayins;
that he has greatly improved since he
participated in the shortstop tournament
which took place in this city a little over
a year ago. In fact his playing surprised
everyone. There is no doubt whate ver
that, if Catton was to settle down and
make up his mind to play billiards he
would soon reach a point where he would
give the leaders hard work to maintain

At the residence of the bride's parents,
Henry Schnitger and wife, 605 Tenth
street, at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon,

that united the destinies of James W.
Lawhead and Miss Anna L. Schnitger.
The couple were attended by Frederick

Miss Nora Gorman of this city as brides
maid. The bride was attired in a beau
tiful gray silk wedding costume acd the
bridesmaid in soft gray with lace trim
mings whiie the groom and best man
wore the conventional black. After the
ceremony had been finished and the
guests had congratulated the happy cou
ple, the company sat down to a sump
tuous wedding feast and the remainder of
the time between that and the
departure of the couple on their bridal
tour was spent in making merry the joy
ous occasion. Both the contracting
parties are well known here, the bride
who was raised in the city, is one of its
most estimable young ladies and pos
sessed of rare vocal talent. She was a
member of the Central church choir here
gome time and later sang in the First
Presbyterian in Davenport. The groom
is also a native of this city being for some
time in the employ of the Burlington road
here, but of late has been in the office of
