Depositions Taken In Rock Island in Ir

Rock Island Arsenal.
E. E. Wortbinuton and J. H. Demp
sey, cf Cleveland, representing the
Cleveland Stone company and G. H
Doizenbacker, of Sandusky, Ohio, and
E. B. King, of the same place, his at
torney, arrived a-, the Harper last even
ing on an important mission. Their pur
pose was to take testimony relating to
the stone required for the construction
of the government water power dam for
which the C:evel nd 8ton company re
ceived the contract. The Cleveland
company is engaged in quarrying exclu
sively and when it received the contract
for the work at Fock Island arsenal it
sublet the contrat t to Dorznbacker &
Deck, of Sandusky, but that firm after
the contract was let forfeited the
part sublet to it snd the Cleveland com
pany was obliged to relet the cutting at
aa advance of $i 0,000. Now it sues the
firm far the difference.
The object of tie visit here was to take
depositions relative to the manner of the
delivery of the at ne here for the dam.

There are some characteristic touches of
Raskin in the introduction which Mr. Ar
thur Severn has written to the catalogue of
his water color drs wings. The great critic
cannot bring himself to believe in the aes
thetic value of London's fog and smoke
and gloom. "I remember once," says Mr.
Severn, "many yei.rs ago, my showing him
a large drawing I did from Manchester
buildings, close to Westminster bridge, of
St. Paul's at nun rise, looking across the
river. He said, 'What a beastly subject!
I was rather butt rised, and he saw that I
felt it, for he ate nee took me by the arm
and said, 'But, my dear Arthur, that little
cloud is wonderfully true and could not be
better.' I fancy it was the great Shot
Tower and the Charing Cross railway
bridge he could not stand."
On one occasion his niece's husband was
more successful in appealing to Mr. Ras
kin's sympathies. The artist had been busy
all day on a aketct of Brignol bay, in York
shire. "When I iirrived," he writes, "at
the little inn (whi re we were staying) at
about 0 o'clock, having been at work
till then, and havi ig had no dinner, be in
sisted on my sittln g down at the table, and
went himself to fetch the different dishes,
with what help the little shy Yorkshire
maid could give, saying, 'Arthur has done
a capital sketch; must be tired and hungry,
and I will wait oi him.' Had I done a
London Bubject ec ually well, he wouldn't
have cared a straw." Pall Mall Gazette.
A very pleasant surprise was given the
Misses Mamie and Mina Towcscnd at the
home of their parents, G. W. Townsrnd
and wife, last evening. Gitnes and other
social amusements was the order of the
evening which wss very agreeably passed
in this way. At 1 1 o'clock a delicious
8 pre ad was served after which the games
were resumed. Ij was a jolly company
that was present, and an evening was
spent that will let g be remembered.
