it is a beautiful compilation in tbe way
of a worn of reference, being a credit to
the city and to tue publisher. Tbe
work affords an idea of whtt R ick Island
may expect in tbe fortbcmirig edition
devoted to this city and to Moiine and
upon which Mr. Stone's experienced can
assers are now working. The Daven
port Leader says:
The cover is of light dre.b with red
back and gold lettering, and the work
contains 4O6 pages The publication
shows a good advertising patronage and
a healthy existence. When tbe pub
lisher first came to our citv he was given
tbe endorsement of the Business Men's
association on tbe promise that he would
give us a book equal in every respect to
other tow ns in Iowa, that agreement
having been faithfully carried out he was
again enoorsed and each time has given
if anything a belter book m each in
stance. Tbe business men are well
pleased with tbe present directory and
bave only the kindest words of com
mendatiun for Mr Stone.
