I never had so pretty unci complete an
assortment of lamps of a" kinds, as now,
nor at prices so low.
This is a little early f r lamps, but I
btlieve there are plenty of people who
would buy now if tbc price made it an
Thursday and Saturduy, July 28th and
3mb, we will sell any lamp in the store,
one fifth off the regular price. Berne m
ber the days, please, for the ieduction
will be made only on these days.
I have purposely set the time ahead so
that those who want lamps may call, look
the line over, get prices, and see hat
they are getting when one fifth is taken
off. It will bring a aorxi central draft
tiirkel lamp down to 68 cents, for io
stance. This not an effort to "reduce stock for
ew goods", but to "get t move" on the
few goods themselves, for we have just
opened this line.

LO THE DIFFERENCE.
How Some Property Holders
Smother Self Feelings.
The Public Uoed Is Kirnt lonaldf ra
tion Willi Them Xo Mnlnjc
the city There.
There is a wide difference is the dispo
sition of property holders in Rock Island
whose personal interests are affected by
the march of public improvement. There
is probably no thoroughfare in the city
where the property interested facing it is
to be as seriously affected as is the case on
Third avenue, between Twenty-third and
Twenty fourth streets. An immense fill
is to be made to bring the street up to
the established grade preparatory to
p.vicg, and adjacent property as a con
sequence will be considerably below the
street. Yet so far no muttering of com
plaint has been heard, or is likely to be.
Probably no property holder will suffer
i h damages that I. Huber will in the
beautiful grounds surrounding his home
at the corner of Twenty-third street,
f-'i Mr. Uuber is not the kind of a
ii..a tu sue the "city either, for personal
guin, or to set an tx-itnple that will check
the city in its street improvements here
after. The position of all public spirited
citizens as it should be with reference to
improvements to this kind could not have
been more fittingly stated than was ex
pressed by Otto Huber recently when he
said "we do not believe in attempting to
forestall the city in the city in the system
of public improvements which it has in
augurated and which look so much to the
good of the general public. To be sure
the Third avenue grade will damage oar
property considerably, but we are not
objecting when we consider the vat ben
efiu generally resulting from paving.
Let the good work go on."
How great the contrast between the
position maintained by this pub'ic spir
ited citizen, and the attitude ot the down
t)n gentleman who has jumped on the
city with a demand fcr 3.000 for the
improvement of the thoroughfare that
goes past his house. Fortunately for
Hock Island's reputation at least, the men
who are of Mr. Huber's disposition are
in the foreground and in the majority,
while the obstructionists are in tbe rear
and decidedly in tbe minority.

If tbe street railway company don't fix
tbe pavement at Twentieth and Second

The Mpeneer Mqnare Orlnktac Foun
tain. A cistern is being dug close to the
Davis drinking fountain in Spencer
Square, the sides of which are to be of
masonry, tbe top concrete, with an iron
lid. When completed the pipe leading
to the fountain conveying the artesian
waUr from the Mitchell &Ly ode well will
be cut and a coil of 150 feet of pipe put
in. This coil will be covered with a layer
of gravel, on which a supply of ice will
be kept. To prevent a too rapid melting
of the ice it will be kept covered with wet
blankets. The bottom of the cistern
will not be walled, but will consist of the
ordinary soil, to enable the water from
the ice to drain off. The hot weather
during the last few days has had the
effect of warming the water during its
passage from the well at Mitchell &
Lynde's building to the square, making it
unfit to drink, and Park Commissioner
Jackson has hit upon tnis idea of pro
viding the cool comfort as described, the
mayor having approved of the plan.
