Farmers, be said, are isoUted. are

and are in close communion wi.h nature.
Comparison of ideas will enable them to
artjust their duties to these arndittons.
Duties, as mentioned, are worship, Sun

"Why do Bovp Lave the Farm?" was

not treated as they should be. 1 bey were

made In the docket during the noon hour
Judge Smith took a hand in the affair and

Another Cold Winter.
People who wtrs in the lead mioe re
gion in the winter of 1843 8, just 60
yeitrs ago, are not inclined to give the
present winter rank as "the coldest ever
experienced here," stys the Galena Qa
zHle. Tbey remember that severe
weather set ia early in December that
season and continued until the end of
Ma-ch with only one thaw. The month,
of March was the coldest of all. The
highest temperature of the whole montb
was three abovj zsro and the average
t mperature was only 23 belowl Com
pacd with such weather the first two
weeks of the present month were spring
like. In January there had come a thaw fol

A FAIR PROPOSITION.
O. M. Babcock's flan to Aid the Tri-City
O. M. Babcock has made the fcllowirg
liberal and public spirited proposition
relative to f erthering the Tri-City Coluoi
biau advertising project. The letter is
addressed to B. F. Tillingbast, managing
editor of the Davenport Democrat, who
originally suggested the enterprise and
Rock Island. 111., Jan. 27. B. F Til
lingbast, Dear Sir: The project of mik
iLg a topographic 1 view of this vicinity
is worthy of success and should be com
pleted. Fearing that the passage of the
necessary appropriations through three
city councils will require too much time
for the proper completion ef the work to
be shown at the World's Fair, I propose
to contribute freely three courses ef three
lectures each course in Roi UUnd,
Moline and Davenport in order to raise
the required funds.
These lectures are to be delivered un
der the auspices of the Advrnising
league with an admission fe of 50 cems
for the course of three lectures, which
would ri quire the sale of 5 OK) tickets
one-half on each side of the river.
The lectures may or may not be ac
companied with mjsic or other attrac
tions, all of which must be cmtribu'ed
on the same tjrms as the lectures free.
No deductions must be made from the

halls, lights or advertising. A souvenir

The lectures will be illustrated with
charts prpp-red for exhibition at the
World's Fair.and will show the course of
empire n path of powpr around the

in the new.
These lectures will repay the cost of
tickets, time and attention given by lis
teners, as thev are entertaining and in
structive. Thev show the harmony of
history, geography, philosophy and facts
to punting, a prophesy which is thereby
well founded and ther fore demonstrated

The Port Byron Globe doe9 not take
kindly to the suggestion that the Coe
Fair association hold its fairs on the Co
lumbian tract hereafter.and snys:
This is quite a novel suggestion whieh
the Uuion mkes, but we hardly think
the asfocia i"n will consider it to their
interes'8 to put it into eff ct. We are
sure that if the attendance our fa r has
had from Mo ine and Rvk Island Is
any criterion of the interest the people of
those rates will take in a county f.iir,

the compliment tendered them by the
Union in regard to their knowing how to
run a fair, but if tbey do know how thev
'so know where, and thiit is as near
