The ARGis has from time to time
made mention of the pressing need
of more houses, both for sale and
rental, anil though each year many

from all appearances is constantly in
creasing. At no time in the history
of the city, perhaps, has there been
such a dearth of houses for rent. At
the depots, in the hotels, on the
street cars, in business houses, and
in fact almost everywhere inquiries
are constantly heard in regard to
suitable houses for rent. People who
formerly were very particular about
where they rented property, are now
glad to get almost any place

CHANGE OF OFFICIALS.
A fw Superintendent on the C H
W. H. Throop Prouioteil.
Next Saturday a change occurs on
the Rock Island & St. Louis division
of the C, Ii. & Q., involving two pro
motions. YV. B. Throop, who has had
charge of the operating department
of the division for the past three
years, is to be elevated to the super
intendence" of the Galesburg division
succeeding John Lass, while W. O.
Uessler comes from the Clinton divi
sion to take Mr. Bessler's place.- The
new superintendent is the son of
Gen. Supt. J. 1). Bessler, of the Bur
lington system. For some time he
has been trainmaster of the Clinton
division with headquarters at Fulton.
The fact that he has been sent to the
Rock Island & St. Louis div ision is
evidence of the company's apprecia
tion of liis worth and the determina
tion to advance him in the railroad
service. For many years this divi
sion has been the kindergarten of the
Burlington system, and most of the
oflicials who have risen to prominence
in the company have had their start
ing point here. That Mr. Bessler
will be no exception to the rule his
friends have full confidence.
This morning a special came in on
the j. consisting of the private car
of Supt. F. C. Rice, of the Illinois di
visions, and on which were Supt.
Throop and Bessler, the purpose be
ing to acquaint the latter with the
duties which he assumes next Saturday.

In obedience to Chairman Whee-

of the democratiecity-township com
mittee, and also the candidates on
the democratic ticket was held last
evening at Turner hall. Chairman
Wheelan presided, and after the plan
of campaign had been discussed, the

The action of the committee adds
strength to the ticket. Mr. Huesing

tent of the Stevenson club, wliicli

zeal he posscsse's for the supremacy
of democratic principles. He is am

through his duties as member of the

mittees of the city council.

It lias Ticked Off Nearly Two Centuries.
Mrs. Catharine Oyler of Kokomo re
cently came into possession of an old
fashioned wooden clock of ancestral
times that has been passing from gener
ation to generation for nearly 200 years.
It was bequeathed to Mrs. Oyler by her
father, J ohn Woodrinj? of Preble county,
O., who died a short time ago, aged 93.
The clock is of English manufacture, of
the stylo known as the "wall sweeper,"
made by Reed & "Ward in the year 1711.
The case is of English black walnut, and
all parts of the running gear are con
structed of wood. It is 7 feet tall and
weighs 115 pounds. It lias been ticking
away for 1S3 years without a stop and
has never been repaired. The wooden
wheels show little or no wear, and it is
apparently good for another century or
more, ticking away as merrily, truth
fully and tunefully as it did in England
nearly two centuries ago. Cor. Indian
