Rockford will be here Saturday and
Campion. Rockford's new first base
man, is putting up a fine article of ball.
A bicycle race is being arranged for
next week's series of games at the Twin
City park, which will probably be a regu
lar feature thereafter.
P&tsy Lynch continues to play his ex
cellent came of ball, having the best rec
ord of any of our players in the first
game at Rockford, he having one run,
one hit, two put-outs, four assists and
not an error.
The Rockford Star has the following
in regard to the arrival of the locals in
that breezy town:
The Rock Island-Molines came to
town yesterday arrayed like Solomon in
all his glory. The treasury down at the
Twin Citys is much fatter than is gener
ally the case in the I. -I. league, so the
directors blowed themselves for some
new garments for Harry Sage and his
men. They are quite handsome, and the
boys inside of them look and act very
much like ball players.
The finishing touches are iust being
put on the improvements begun on F.
C. Hoppe's tailoring establishment on
Second avenue about three weeks ago.
The flcor has been raised about 15 inches,
and has been relaid with hard wood.
The front has been refitted with hand
some new doors, and the entire inside
brightened with new paper. The inter
ior will also be brightened with fresh
paint ss will the front, and a fine plate
glass window put in the rear of the store.
He is also making arrangements for a
neat dressing room as the larger tailoring
establishments have, and when the work
is finished Mr. Hoppe will have one of
the finest and most thoroughly metro
politan stores in this section. The im
provements are all of a substantial na
ture, and bespeak the progressive ideas
of the proprietor.
Herman Scbwecke has torn down the
old frame building on the alley on Twen

this morning and taken direct to the

where the day is being spent.
Last evening being the occasion of the
regular semi-weekly ladies' and child

great many people, including
some of the most promi
nent in the three cities. The concert by
Otto's band was greatly enioyed, and la
ter there was vocal and instrumental
music in the parlors of the Inn on the
second floor, to which the new piano con
tributed its part.

The grounds were beautifully illumin
ated with Japanese lanterns last night.
The material has been ordered by
President Louderback for illuminating
the depot, summer pavilions and merry-go-round
with incandescent lights. A
string of incandescent beads will be
placed around the turrets of the Inn
which will produce a pretty tffect.
The grounds presented the appearance
of an ideal summer resort last evening.

Then there are two blocks on Nineteenth

Second to Third in all not over two
weeks' work, basing calculations on the
way the work is progressing on Third
avenue, when the company will be free
to undertake its new contracts on East
and West Seventeenth, Sixteenth, Fif
teenth and Fourteenth, seven blocks in
all, which will be put in this fall without
a doubt. The company has so far beat
any records made in the three cities for
rapid paving.and if it does the work out

of anything before done here which will
give the local company a decided advan

Meanwhile Edwards & Walsh are peg
ging away at Moline avenue, and will be
under BrookB' crossing complete, in a
short time. The firm expects to get
through to the Moline line by the end of
the working season, and let us hope it
will. To the firm's credit it should be
said, the pavement it is putting in now,
is the best it has done in Rock Island,
and at the same time probably the most
difficult piece of work. The firm has yet a
portion of its Moline avenue job to go
over and repair and this will very likely
be done before the end of the season.

A Widower Who nailed a Letter to
Hla Deceased Wife la the Kingdom
Someone dropped a letter into the
Davenport postoffice yesterday that was
addressed to "My Darling Mamie, No. 1.
Heaven's Gate, Heaven. Care St. Peter."
Opening of the letter to secure a more
definite address disclosed a couple of
pages of rambling ravings apparently
written to a deceased wife and signed
"Hubby." The writer said be had writ
ten two or three times before, but was
afraid the postmaster had not forwarded
his letters. He says that the night be
fore he walked toward the bridge with
the intention of drowning himself, but
concluded to write one more letter. If
he doesn't hear from his wife in a day or
two he threatens to end his life with
either poison or lead. The envelope
bore a 1-cent stamp, and if forwarded
wou'd have to be due stamped. When
it costs two cents, the Democrat says, to
send a letter to any part of the world, the
writer should have had sense enough to
have put on at least that much to get a
letter to another realm.
He surely ought to have known better,
it may be added, than to have mailed a
letter in Davenport addressed to the
celestial region, and expect it to reach
The ailnneanolia 31 ascot.
Early every morning people residing
on the outskirts of the city can see a well
built colored lad in a sweater hustling
along et a brisk walk, and many have
wondered who he is. For the informa

Ed. Sheppard. who has been in the city
the past week training, and it is prob
able that a glove contest will be arranged
in the near future between SaepparJ,
who travels under the name of the "Mia
neapolis Mascot," and Joe Flaherty, of
Lowell. Mass., who will arrive in the city
from Chicago tonight. There his been
talk of a meeting between the two for
some time, and as a number of the local
lovers of the manly art have interested
themselves in it, the result will no doubt
be a meeting, and that before many days.
Catarrn Cant be Cured
with local applications, as they cannot
reach the seat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you have to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on the blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of the best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined with the best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. The perfect combina
tion of the two ingredients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Send for testimonials free.
