The Jannary Record for a Period of 21
The chief of the weather bureau di
rects the publication of the fol owing
data, compiled from the record of obser
vations for the month of January, taken
at this station for & pciiod of 21 years. It
is believed that the facts thus set forth
will prove of iuterest to the public as well
as to the special student, showing es tbey
do the average and extreme conditions of
the more important meteorological ele
ments and the range within which such
Variations may be expected to keep dui
ing any corresponding month.
The mean or norm! temperature for
January was 10 degrees The warmest
January was that of 1880, with an aver
age of 37 degrees; the coldest was that
of 1875, with an average of 8 decrees.
The highest temperature during any
January was 60 degrees on the 3rd in
1874, while the lowis; was 28 on the 5tb
In the way of precipitation, the aver

A CLOSE CALL.
The Frohman success,' "The Grey
Mare," was presented to an appreciative
and delighted audience at the Burtis at
Davenport last evening. Tonight the
same production is to be given at Har
per's theatre. This is Sims & Raleigh's
far famed comedy enacted by Daniel
Frohman's special company. From all
we can hear the stage is not dull for a
single second during the two hours in
which the play progresses. There is a
rattle and bang and s go to the move
ments that is dotted all along with do
mestic contretemps, and which keeps an
audience not only interested but thor
oughly amused from first to finish.
What the aged have learned through
bitter experience, what baa been repeated
over and over again, what has been
proved to be right through all the centu
ries, what once thoroughly memorized
and followed guarantees a happy and
successful life, viz: Do what is right and
you will enjoy existence; do what is eyil
and you are sure to suffer the conse
qnences. "As ye sow, so shall ye reap."
Witnessing the grandly beautiful play,
Faust and Marguerite, is like having the
above le son imprinted on one's brain in
letters of fire. It will be seen by J. W.
Griffith and his excellent company at
Harper's theatre tomorrow night.
In "Nora Machrte" our theatre goers
will have an opportunity to see the new
picturesque Irish drama which 8idney R.
Ellis haa given a fine scenic production
at the Burtis opera bouse, Davenport,
Wednesday, Dec. 28. The play presents
a type of Irish character new to the stage
old traditions are discarded, and an en
tirely new vein is cleverly worked out.
The theme is original, with a plot which
at all times is most intense.

George Johnson, while returning from
Davenport across the ice last night, had a
narrow escape. When within about 100
yards of the foot of Eighteenth street he
stepped into a hole in the ice, but for
tunately caught himself and with some
difficulty crawled out. No one was
about and be made his way to the Rock
Island house, where he was taken care
of. Mr. Johnson had only lately recov
ered from a long sick spell and his cold
bath will probably not tend to help him
A Word for the Terminal Project.
Rock Island, Dec. 26. Editor An
oos The city attorney made a very
clear report as to the frontage at
band to accommodate other railroads
that desire to enter the city, which would
be a step forward in bringing about our
terminal grounds. 1'he terminal
grounds mean more railroads, more fac
tories, warehouses, elevators, railroad
shrtM round houses, dwelling houses.
etc., to be built in the lower part of the
city. If the city council will take up the
matter and consider it iavoraoiy it win
bring about one of the greatest improve
ments, and which will add more to the
nonnlation of the citv than any other im
provement that has been thought of.

A Whole Davenport Family Narrowly Es
The family of Fred Wendt, in Daven

been a dire catastrophe Chri3tmis night
The Democrat tells the story of the affair.
Some days ago a new gas meter was put
in the family residence and on the night
mentioned escaping gas pervaded the en
One of the elder daughters s'eeping up
stairs had inhaled the vitiated air untl
she was unconscious and she would prob
ably have ntver awakened had it not been
that one of her parents was aroused by
the disagreeable cdor in the house; and.
furthermore, by the noise the girl made in
rolling and plunging in red. The startled
parents hurried to their daughter's room
and found her id seeming agony. They
tried to rouse her, but she was so nearly
asphyxiated that nothing they could do
proved of avail. The rest of the family
was awakened and summoned to the room
of the young girl.
Every member of the household had
been affected by the escaping gas and it
was fully apparent, for they all were
seized with vomiting and not until some
windows were raised and fresh air entered
did any of them get relief. A physician
was finally summoned, who ministered to
the unfortunate girl, and in a short time
she wag able to recognize those about ber.
It was a close call, and the family are
congratulating themselves that the affair
was no worse than it was.

The Modern Woodmen.
The state convention of the Modern
Woodmen will be held at Peoria January
10, next. There will be business ses
sions during the day, commencing at 10
in the morning and a grand reception and
ball in the evening.
Many questions of importance will be
presented for the consideration of the
delegates at the Peoria state meeting,
among which may be mentioned the mat
ter of taking definite steps with reference
to the Grand Order of Woodcraft being
fully represented at the approaching
World's Fair. Action on this question
was unintentionally overlooked at the
Omaha meeting. Other leading orders of
the country will have headquarters at the
World's Fair, and have a day set apart
for a grand parade, and why should not
the Modern Woodmen of America take
the initiatory step in this regard?
Many other questions for the good of
the order as a whole, will be presented
for consideration. The perfecting ot
state organisttion that it may more
nearly conform to the general form of
Woodcraft will also take ' place at this
