There is considerable talk among
local stonecutters, occasioned by the
fact that the contracts on the stone
work on different buildings in the
tri-citics have been let to contractors
who have the stone cut in Chicago
or elsewhere. The new Moline High
school contract for stone work was
let to parties who have the stone cut
in Chicago. The men feel that in
contracts for public structures that
a proviso should be included to have
the stone cut here as there are some
00 stone cutters in the tri-cities.
The stone work for the prdposed new
No. 4 school building, it is stated,
would give employment to 15 or 20
men during the summer.

oxen, also of bronze, which stand with their

it is mediocre when compared with some of
those on the upper floors. One ia particular
is deserving of speciul mention.

magic chamber, while the floor is of blocks
of wood not more than an inch square,
brought from all portions of the world by
the missionaries sent out by the church.
Another apartment adjoininK is still more
beautiful. White and gold are used, and
the effect is to dazzle the eye. The tapes

rare and costly. All the basins and ewers
are of the finest onyx, delicate in tint, and
