A Citizen's Views on the Fire
TWO MOKE COMPANIES NEEDED.
The System Good as Far as It Goes. Bat
There In Not Enongh of It Urgent Need
or Establishing the Stations at Once The
Fire of Wednesday Night.
A well known ri;izen accosted a repor
ter for Thk Aztecs this morning, and in
tbe course of tbe conversation said hs
wished to commend the work of the fire
department at the fire tbe other night in
the Tegekr block. - .
A Good Thing.
"I have been a close obseiver of fire
departments in other cities," he contit
ued, "and I must tay that Rock Island
has a first-class service in every respect
as far as it goes. "With all due credit to
the old volunteer system for it was one
of the best to be found anywhere yet I
sincerely believe that had the fire on
Wednesday night been handled by vol
unteers they would have gutted the
"naen iue ahgus nrat taifcea or a
paid depKrtraeut I dil not think it could
be utilized to an adv-intae in this city
but since seeing the change it has wrought
in the mun&gement of fires, I not only
feel that the city has made a most won
derful 6tride in this line, but that it is an
urgent necessity that it eo still further
and establish at letst two more stations
one in each end of the city and that as
soon as possible."
All That la Needed.
If the suggestion, of the citizen were
curried out. as indeed it ought to be at
the earliest opportunity it would give
Hock Island as good a five service as they
have anywhere. While it may be true
tbat the present department is not called
upon to ret pond to many alarms, yet it
is only Rock Island's good fortune that
such is the case arid this is no protection
cir.st the possible breaking out of a dis
astrous coDfligration at any time. This
city has tow reached that
point where it roust take every precau
tion ia tbe protection of the lives and
property if its citiz?ns, SDd "here is noth
ing tbat inspires more cobfi lenoe in, or
gives a town more of a metropolitan ap
pearance than a well managed fire de
par mi nt. The matter has already been
taken in hand by the city council, aad it
is to be hoped that the action will be 86
speedy bs possible in order that, the city
raiy have the fullest possible protection
against any unforseen calamity that
m ght occur.
A POINTED PROTEST.
A Wdrklncinnn Who Objects to Forced
Holidays for Pure Political ERm-t.
"A. orkingman signs a communica
tion in last Bight's Moline Republican-
Journal, in which he makes tbe following
pointed remarks on the matter of forced
holidays in shutting down the factories
and civing tbe men to understand that
heir presenc: in the priJes is expected
As a worEingmtin wno?e wages, in
common with a great many others in Mo
line, do not admit of my taking any un
necessary holidays, I want to protest
Hcainst the closing down of seme of our
largest factories on account of the Filer
paiade. Many of us cannot aflord to
lose a day's wages. A treat many of us
are not republicans, and have no personal
interest in tbe demonstration, and even
many of those who are do not see why
they should be compelled to lose their
time on a day which is not a legal non
dav. just to help the factories make a
show in the parade
It we want as individuals to take a day
off for our own special reasons, it is next
to impossible to get the foreman to con
cede it, and we are sometimes given to
understand that other men are alter our
jobs. This thing don't look right to me.
and I have heard a good many others say
the same thine.
But tbere is another reason and that is
this: All the speakers who are at Rock
Island today will be in Moline tonight,
and there could be no excuse made that
tbe men could not get a chance to see
and bear them, because they will be
right here in our own town. It seems to
me to be simply a means to find out how
tbe men ttand politically, to go around,
as they have done in some of our shops,
with a list of the employes and ask each
man whether be would march or not.
But the Australian ballot system will
prevent anj body following us to the
polls to see how we vote tbaDk God for
tbat. And this will be the first national
ehction when men can vote as they want
to witboit a watch teiag kept over their

Prospective Consolidation of the Brewing
Interests of Rock Island.
A Springfield dispatch announces the
application at tbe cffi;e of the secretary
of state for subscription papers looking
to the formation of the Rock Island
Brewing company, with capital stock of
$1,000 000. for which George Wagner,
I. Huber and Gustav Stengel are the ap
plicants. As these gentlemen represent
the three Rock Island breweries, the con
clusion naturally to be drawn is tbat a
brewing combine is to be perfected in
Rock Island. Anxious to learn the true
status of affairs an Akgcs reporter has
made inquiries of representatives of the
three Rock Island institutions and learned
that nothing has yet been definitely set
tied as to the prospective combination,
teyond tbe application for subscription
papers. In reply to a question in reference
to tbe abandoment of any of tbe present
breweries, the reporter was aesurtd that
all would be continued as malt houses if
nothing else, and tbat at all events two
breweries would be maintained. Further
than this the brewery representatives

In a nig Store.
A Ehort time apo while visiting in the
city of Syracuse I concluded to go shop
ping. As my Inend bad some household
duties which needed her personal atten
tion I started out alone.
Among otaer things l wanted to pur
chase was a hat for my little boy. As I
had always lived in a small town I was
somewhat confused by the size of the store
at which my friend directed uie to make
my purchase. I knew enough to find the
floorwalker, however, and have him show
me to tbe hat department.
As is usually the case where there is a
large assortment to choose from, I could
not decide which to take, so walked away,
saying, I did not see any to suit me."
After awhile I managed to find the door I
had entered and passed out.
With a great deal of confidence In my
ability to find a hat store without aid I
turned the corner and started down the
street. At the very next corner I saw a
very large number of hats in the window
and concluded to enter. To my utter
chagrin I found myself at the identical
counter in the same store, and the same
clerk smiling at my embarrassment.
In my confusion and hurry to get out I
rushed toward a lady coming from the op
posite side, when to my horror I came forci
bly against a large mirror, which I had
mistaken for an archway, and found that
the woman I saw coming was myself. Im
agine my feelings when, upon turning
around, I found a dozen pair of eyes and as
many people watching me, trying to re
strain their laughter. I think you will
agree with me that one experience of the
kind Is enough. Cor. New York Recorder.
What is to Be Done On the Up
JTOHEROUS IMPOBTANT CONTRACTS.
The Invention of the Piano.
The honor of inventing the piano is
claimed by the English, the French and
the Germans. Father W ood, an English
monk at Rome, is said to have been the
real inventor in 1711, and to have manu
factured one, which he sold to Samuel
Crispl, the author of "Virginia," from
whom it was purchased by Falke Greviile.
though Count Carli claims the credit for
Bartholemmeo Chnstiionc, of Padua, dur
ing his stay in Florence, some three years
later (1714). The French attribute the in
vention to a Parisian named Marius, who
they alleged produced iu 1716 a harpsi
chord in which hammers had been substi
tuted for the old plectrums or quills. The
Germans are the last in the field with J.
U. Schroder, of Dresden, who claimed
(1717), when eighteen years of age, to have
constructed alter much consideration the
model of a new clavier with hammers,
upon which he could play loudly or softly."

"My nnsband Says."
Leigh Hunt says, "A wise man quotes
bravely." However tbat may be, women
wise and otherwise have always intrenched'
themselves behind certain conversational
defenses. Behind that innocent little
phrase, "My husband says," lurks a vast
amountof feminine picturesqueness. What
astonishment, not unmixed with dismay,
would fill the soul of the good man if he
could hear the extraordinary statements
his wife puts in his lips! For instance, she
tolls her friends very earnestly that her
husband says he prefers sleeves that are
slurred diagonally and then embroidered
rather than those that are embroidered
and then gathered into a plain cuff. That
is the reason the pretty little speaker gives
lor the fashion of her own garment.
The truth is that her husband does not
know what shirring means. Men with an
almost morbid horror of personalities are
reported as warning their wives against
certain people. When a drive is proposed
distasteful to the young wife she almost
automatically declares tbat her husband
says he is afraid to have her get into a car
riage. Von cannot carry on a conversation
of Xive minutes' length with some people
without tbe introduction of this phrase,
either as an excuse or an argument.
There is no voluntary falsehood about
the matter whatever. It is plainly a habit.
praiseworthy from some points of view.
ho does not admire the wives who, since
the days of Elizabeth and her Zachariah,
have interpreted dumb husbands? They
may be wedded unto clowna, but into the
lips of these same clowns they put their
own nobility of thought and speech.

Why Dumas Lang-bed.
Sir Richard Wallace once heard the elder
Dumas laughing boisterously in his stndv.
and was told by a servant that Dumas
was working and that he often laughed
like that at his work. It turned out that
the great novelist was "in company with
one of his own characters, at whose sallies
he was simply roaring." But this was
years ago, when imagination went hand in
band with animal spirits. It would be
difficult to imagine one of the modern intense-realistic-analytical
school so eaailv
diverted. Boston Journal.
