pressed the hope that the system would
in the near future net some return on the
heavy investments made here.
Mr. Dickinson asked particularly as to
Rock Island's present outlook, and when
told by an Argcs reporter that the city
was prospering and growing as it never
had before, he replied: "We are glad to
hearth st. It is our desire and to our
interett to see all these cities flourish.
Certair.ly we are as deeply identified with
their progress as any one outside could
possibly be. Indeed we feel as near to
them in a great decree as if we actually
had our resilience here. What conduces
to the advancement of any of these
cities is of material concern to us, and
we look to a time when they will all
have attained the positions of corcmer-,
cial centres toward which they are bo in
dustriously aiming and which we have
reason to believe they will fully realizj.'

THE SCHOOL LAW.
The Statutory Provision Against which so
Much. Opposition has Arisen.
The provisions of the present school
law of the state, in opposition to which
such a generally prevailing feeling has
arisen all over the state, are herewith
submitted in full.
1. Persons having control of children
between the ages of 7 and 14, (ball cause
them to attend a public school 16 weeks
in each year, except in case where the
board of education is satisfied that the
children have attended a private school
(approved by the board or the school
directors or the district) a like . period, or
that instruction in the branches com
monly taught in the public school has
otherwise been given to the children for
a like period, or 1 hat the children have
in any way acquired those branches. In
such cases the law is sufficiently com
2. No school satisfies the law unless
reading, writine, arithmetic, geography
and history of the United States are
taught in the English language.
The remainder of the law merely pro
vides for the appointment of a truant of

It is the section that gives school
boards absolute authority over the child
and takes the matter of his training out
of the hands of his parents or guardians
entirely, that has raised so much righte
ous indignation throughout the state and
which has been so soundly protested
against by Judge Altgeld.
One of the best events of the season
will be the production of Charles Froh
man's comedy success, ' Jane." at the
Burtis next Wednesday evening. This
is the funny comedy which has taken
New York and Londcn by storm, and
which "an for over 100 nights at the
Madison Square theatre. For pure com
edy it is said to rank with Wilkinson's
Widows. Briefly told the story of Jane
ia substantially this: A young Londoner
has been going it at a rather rapid rate,
and has been drawing on bis trustee, an
old man, and fooling into the belief that
be is married, when he is not married at
all. This trustee is about to pay him a
visit, and the young man has to provide
himself with a wife or the secret will be
out, and there will be mischief to play all
round. He proposes to the girl to
whom he is engaged to get married; she
won't at such short notice, and he pro
poses then to the aunt of the girl to
nominally become his wife until the old
trustee is satisfied, and she refuses, but
finally consents through the interposi
tion of the young man's valet, unknown
to the master. The master, in the mean
time, unknown to the valet, has arranged
with Jane, the housekeeper, and the
valet's wife, whose marriage is kept a
secret from the master, to personate tbe
young fellow's wife to the old trustee.
This is tbe plot pure and simple, and it is
easy enough to imagine what a number
of comical situations might and have
been evolved through it. Jane will be
nicely mounted and presented with an
One of the best comedies of the season
will be presented at Harper's theatre

HER HIGH HUSBAND.
Mrs. Nagle Rons Her Costly Match Down
In New York and Has Him Arrested His
The circumstances of the desertion at
Cheyenne of the former Mrs. Nagle of
this city by ber husband, Caarle A. While,
are known. The latest development in the
case is detailed in tbe following New
York dispatch appearing in today's Chi
cago Herald: '
Charles A. While, representative of
the London Illustrated News, was ar
rested in this citv Saturday, charged with
the embezzlement of $50,000. The
charge is preferred by bis wife, for
merly Mrs. Nagle, who resides in Chey
enne, Wyo. White was taken to the Jef
ferson Market court today and remanded.
He will probably be extradited tomorrow.
White, in the first instance, was also
charged by his wife with having kid
napped her 16-year-old son, George H.
Nagle, with ulterior designs upon her
fortune. Telegraphic dispatches were
6ent Superintendent Byrnes by her attor
neys that the lad was being ferreted at
the St. James hotel in this city, and
upon their subsequent corrorbation by
the Cheyenne chief of police two detec
tives were detailed upon the case. When
they called at the St. James for the lad.
however, they learned that White bad
left fur Rock Island, and that the
boy bad been sent to his mother.
That wes about a month ago, and
nothing was heard of the matter until
Saturday, v. hen the sheriff of Cheyenne
arrived with requisition papers, and a
warrant, under which White was ar
rested on the embezzlement charire
White, it appears, met Mrs. Naele. a
wealthy widow, about a year ago while
both were visiting Hot SpriDss. The
acquaintance soon culminattd in mar
riage and White, as Mrs. Nagle alleges,
obtained from her shortly afterward by
threat and duress, $15 000 in cash end a
promissory note for $75 000 In addi
tion he embezzled frm ber $40,000
worth of stocks ana bonds and, immedi
ately upon disposing of these fled.
While, an the other hand, alleges that
his matrimonial consent was purchased
for $100,000, of which but $15,000 was
paid in cash; the balance was to be paid
as soon as the widow could convert her
securities. It was for the purpose ot se
curing this balance. White says, that
Mrs. Nagle eave him her note for $75,
000 and amp'e collateral security.

Colonel H. and the Komsa Beggar.
Colonel H., of Baltimore, settled in Rome
some years s.nee, and for a time received
his mail at tbe bank, to which he always
walked morning and afternoon, passing en
route through the Piazza di Spagna, where
a venerable beggar sat and to whom he
gave alms each time he passed. But after
a few months' knowledge of Roman beg
gardom he suddenly ceased to drop the ac
customed copper into the extended hat,
whereupon the beggar brought suit for
600 lire, which he claimed to have lent
to Colonel H., producing at the same time
two witnesses to the fact. The victim of
this trick lost no time in consulting a na
tive lawyer, who remarked that while he
had no doubt of the utter f rad ulency of the
claim, still the testimony of the beggar
and the two eyewitnesses must stand in
the absence of any-rebutting evidence, but
that if the colonel would spend half tbe
sum involved he would undertake to de
feat the stratagem.
Outraged as he was, the colonel con
cluded to accede to the attorney's terms,
and when tbe case came up. and the beg
gar's two witnesses bad testified to having
seen the beggar lend the money to the de
fendant on a certain day, the latter's law
yer promptly called two witnesses who
made oath that they had seen Colonel H.
pay the money back to the beggar on a day
that proved to be just a week after tbe
date of the alleged negotiation this to
the amazement of the colonel and the con
sternation and defeat of the beggar.

Ifsefal Purposes of Rosin.
There are many useful purposes to which
rosin can be, applied outside of those of
general practic-e. As a nonconductor of
heat it is used in the protection of water
pipes, particularly in crossing bridges
where the pipe is laid in the middle of a
long box and tbe whole filled with melted
rosin. Rosin is also used iu supporting
basement floors in machine shops, which
may be laid over some dry material, as
spent molding sand, which is carefully
leveied off, and the planking laid upon
temporary supports separating it about
two inches above the sand.
Numerous holes, about two inches in
diameter being bored through these
plank. melted rosin is forced throu-h
them by means of funnels until tbe whole
space is solidly filled, and then the upp"
flooring is laid upon these plauks. In case
tbe floor is subjected to shocks sufficient
to break tbe rosin, it rapidly joins together
again in much the same manner as the
revelation of ice. Engineering.
The Emerald in History.
The Israelites respected tho emerald as
a stone of ecclesiastical harmonies, and we
all know tbe passage in the revelation of
"a rainbow round about the throne, in
sight like unto cn emerald," and how the
fourth foundation of the wall round the
heavenly Jerusalem was an emera'd. In
Bzekiel it is said, "Syria was thy merchant
by reason of the multitude of the wares of
thy making; they occupied in thy fairs
with emeralds, purple and broidered work
and fine linen, and coral and agate," an
the high priest wore an emerald ring on
the first finger of his right hand, all the
same as did the Mexican pontiff serving in
the temple of Votan, with whom and hia
Israelitish brother were strange points of
resemblance. London Queen.
Riches Not Necessary.
No man who Is young and well and has
a good moral character is too poor to
marry a girl who is his equal in these re
spects, provided he loves her truly and is
beloved by ber in return.
For if they do truly love each other, they
will be willing to bear and forbear, to work
for each other, to pull together, to paddle
hopefully their own domestic canoe, and
fate, however relentless she may seem to
be, seldom tt.ila to yield success to those
who toil for it with fearless hearts and
