RKVEAGE IS SWEET.
Kspecinlly When It Comes to the Tune of
Yesterday's Amateur Contest Kock Isl
The nine of Rock Island young men
who suffered defeat at the hands of a
team from Moline recently, have sweet re
venge, retaliating for the previous re
verse in a manner that left no room for
doubt as to superiority at present at
least. The Rock Island contingent
jumped away from the Moline brethcrn at
the outset, yesterday and after the second
inning the question was not aa to who
would win, but how much the score
would be in favor of the visitors. The
score by innings tells the story briefly:

Moline nine, while aUemptinz to field in
a ball in the seventh inning, threw it
with such strength as to fracture the
right arm three inches above the elbow.
He displayed remarkable grit, going un

Carter attended him. The patient was
then conveyed to his home in Moline.

Tissue Taper xrunt.
The most recent scheme of combina
tion to raise prices and squeeze labor is
in the tissue paper industry. After
many fruitless efforts to fona a syndi
cate, the fifteen or twenty manufacturers
at last "got together" in the As tor House
in New York July G or 7. After several
days discussion they departed i-.i a mys
terious way, leaving tho public ignorant
of exactly what plan of consolidation
was adopted. One gentleman stated that
the reason for the formation of this syn
dicate was that prices liad gotten down to
the bottom notch and something must
lo done to save the manufacturers. The
duty on tissue paper was increased by
McKinley from 2 per tr.:t. r.d vr.lorcm
to eight cents per pound :m.i V per cent,
ad valorem equivalent n from 75 to
