EVERY FOND MOTHER
is anxious to have her son nicely clothed the year
around. But especially is she desirous of having
him comfortably dressed when the autumnal tints
announce the close approach of winter. The
Daily Argus has determined to relieve the solici
tude of some one mother in Rock Island regard-
ing the wearing apparel or ner son
for the coming cold weather. But
he who wears the clothes must
win them. This is the way he
can secure them: By soliciting
subscribers for The Daily Argus.
To the boy who brings to this
office prior to November 1st, 1892,
the greatest number of the ap
pended subscription order blanks,
signed and filled out by a respon

A Modern Improvement In Which Rock
Island was One of the Cities to Lead
Now They All Want It Local Industries.
The demand for vitrified brick far pav
ing purposes amounts almost to a modern
city craze. In view of this fact it is
gratifying to know that Rock Island was
one of the first cities to adopt this method
of permanent improvements. It lead all
the other cities within 100 miles of here,
set an example to each of its sister cities
and inaugurated the movement which
has become so popular with other cities
of both greater and less population. It
was the enterprise shown by our own
city that led to the establishment here of
a successful (lant for the manufacture of
vitrified paving brick. A large part of
the pavement of the city is now con
structed of home brick, and the demand
has been so great as to entirely consume
the season's output of the factory at
Sears, and work is left incomplete for
want of paving material.
In an extended editorial reference to
the manufacture and use of paving brick,
the Clinton Age Bays;
One of the great industries of the fu
ture will be the manufacturing of paving
brick. Only the slightest beginning, in
comparison with the magoitade of the
businesb as likely to be developed in two
years or less, has been made. Where
now 1,000 brick are made, tbe demand
will at an early day cull for a million .
Wbal otber industry on this continent
can show such an increase or product I
It is not a chimerical calculation based
on fancy, tbat we are making, ine
evidence is positive all about us every
where in the west, that the paving of the
future will be made of brick
Tbe city authorities of Des Moines
have just rejected aU the bids
solicited for paving because it wss im
possible to Drocuru the brick this season.
The committee report thai if the con'rac
tors already busy crowding their Jwork in
tiat city could get 100,000 brick every
working day to December 1st. there
would be lacking 12,000,000 brick to com
plete their present contracts. Hence it
is folly to let more contrasts, as five of
the largest contractors in tbe country al
ready have contracts in Des Moines.
When one considers the hold brick
paving has on tbe public mind, and con
templates tbe satisfaction that kind of
material is giving wherever it has been
used, an idea may be had of the magni
tude tbe business of making the brick will
reach at an early day.
1: is a well settled fact that vitrified
brick surpasses, in every ordinary way
every otber kind of paving material in
use. It is economical, healthy, durable
pleasant and clean. The streets can be
kept smooth and clean easier and cheaper
than though they were wood or stone
It is in fttct tbe perfect paving.
Still but few cities1, comp iralively.have
put down brick pvinp. The great cities
of the wis' have hardly considered tbe
matter. It will not be long before Cni
cago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Minneap
olis will be investigating vitrified brick
Investigation invariably 1 'arts to its adop'
tion. Its adoption in those cities means
a quantity of brick which almost passes

A Cowardly Art Charged Against a Man In

wbo is 18 years old, keeping bouse for
her brothers. Rene De Leu, wbo came
here from tbe same section of Belgium
only a few monibs ago, has visited them
at different times. Sunday forenoon be
was at tbe house when Bogaur: and the
other members of the family went away
for a time. Upon his return he
found his sister in tears, and
in reply to Lis interogations
she informed bim that after the others
bad left tbe houee, De Leu had assaulted
her and thrown her down. She
screamed and he grabbed her by the
throat to prevent her outcries, and car
ried her into a room adjoining the kitch
en . At this time her youngest brother, a
boy several years younger than herself,
returned and De Leu left the house.
As soon as Bogaurt learned from his
Bister what had taken place, he started in
search of De Leu, but on going to De
Leu's boarding place it was ascertained
that be had left about half an hour pre

anything of him during the day.

Frank M. Wills appears at Harper's
theatre tomorrow night in bis great com
edy success, "Wait Till the Clouds Roll
By." Tbe cJlmira Telegram ssys:
Frank M. Wills and bin new comedy
came to tbe opera bouse last night, and
were welcomed by a hot of admirers and
new made friends to standing room only.
His new play far excels " The Old Cron
ies," and gives him a grander opportuni
ty to display bin wonderful ability . His
company is a strong one. and wi ll adapted
for their new work. Mr. Wills has a
face that would be a fortuue to an ordi
nary comrdian, b'.t in tbe possession of
an actor of bis ability it becomes a most
facile instrument of minh and unbroken
laughter. His dialect is as smooth as oil.
He surely holds the first place as a high
class, polished comedim. No vulgarity,
but pure art gleaned from "tbe well of
trutn. John B. Wills was also very clev
er, as were Mr. Feeley, Mr. Turner and
the other gentlemanly members of the
company. Mia Norma Wills, Miss Jes
sie Ollivier, Miss Josie Donnhue, all live
ly, vivacious and bunbling with genuine
and infectious mirth, sang, acted and
danctd with a charm ail tbeir own, and
divided tbe honors of tbe evening with
tbe others. Tbey are all handsome young
women and we hope to Bee them again
Ou Friday evening Milton Nobls and
his gifted wife, Dolly Nobles, are to ap

It is worth while to see Mr Homes in

moroua methods as a comedian giving
distinct and vlu-rle characterization to
the part of Tom Koowall. Dollic No
bles, whose sweet voice, pretty form, and
charming simplicity as an actrrss have
made ber a greut favoii e with theatre
goers who know her, is very winsome and
interesting in tbe lt'ht comedy part she
plays in this piece. Other parts are well
taken by Frank Drumitr, Miss Lorena

bright hits in the new Dockstader pro
