A Desirable Kssential to Paved
What Back Island Ketdi Xext and
Meed Badly Tup af onr Per
What Rock Island needs now aa much
as anything, is a systematic mode of
street sweeping. The more the paved
streets are extended, the more becomes
apparent the necessity to keep these
thoroughfares so improved, clean. The
Abgcb has discussed this question before.
Street sprinkling does not fill the bill. It
is all right as far as it goes, but it does
not go far enough. The streets must be
swept. They must be subjected to some
thing more than the semi-occasional
novelty that has been characteristic of
conducting our street department so far.
The streets cf a city of the progressive
tendency of Rock Island should be swept
about twice a week. If we don't have
a sweeper let the city organize a
wire broom brigade. Five or six men
could attend to all the payed streets in
Rjck Island, by subdividing the city
iaio districts and doing so much every
night. This practice is in vogue in cities
a 4 large as Philadelphia and in the absence
of something better should be intro
ducedin Rock Island.
Rock Island now has several miles of
nicely paved streets. They are a credit
to the city and ought to be extended un
til they include every street of any im
portance in the city. But the money ex
pended does not show the results halt as
plainly as it would if the surface was
given a chance to appear once in a while.
Clean the streets, gentlemen of the coun
cil, and let your good works be shown,
and not buried under mud and refuse.

so effective that one hardly knows what

This is true equally of liquor, tobacco

A HOUSEKEEPER'S TEST.
Mhowinc l'p the Bons Baking? Pow
A Chicago paper, referring to the
schemes of the baking powder testers
who are going through various sections
of the state, gives a letter from a house
keeper, exposing the fraudulent character
of the performance.
Mrs. Page, sys our exchange, writes
that she was recently visited by the lady
agents of a powder which she did not
use. who attempted to show her by boil
ing and stewing it that there was some"
thing wrong about the brand she does
use, the Royal. No amount of manipu-
lation. however, succeeded in doing tbis.
Tne Royal went through all tests tri
umphantly and without a flaw, and the
tester acknowledged herself beaten. The
tester then took a can of Royal from her
pocket, and from that produced almost
anything she called for. bhe said that
she had made this test before
many housekeepers, and had by it in
duced them to throw away the Royal. "My
opinion is," writes Mrs- Page, "that this
testing is a fraud. It was evident to me
that the sample of Royal she drew from
her pocket had been doctored for the
purposu of making these tests, and I can
not see how any sensible housewife could
be so readily fooled. I believe also that
where they can they slip some substance
into the tin in which they boil the water
and powder. When they are watched
too closely and cannot do it, then they
produce the small can expressly prepared
for the purpose."
The women who are performing theBe
alleged tests are, perhaps, iDnocent of
the great fraud in which they are partici
pants, but no censure is too severe for
the employers who thus use them to do
illicit work which they dare not them
selves perform, and which has brought
them before the courts elsewhere.
