When Mr. Bostock left his home in
South Rock Island at 8 o'clock yes
terday morning he told his family he
intended going to Peoria during the
afternoon, ami would not be home
before Saturday. Nothing was
thought of this, as it was his custom
in the discharge of his official duties
to make extended trips out of town,
but last evening when his son got a
letter out of the postoffice from him
under a Rock Island post mark of 7
p. m., and took it home to his
mother the latter was greatly sur
prised and alarmed at the contents,
the purport of which was to
bid his family good-bye. and
to give instructions relating to
the answering of a letter to
his aged father in England There
were two things about the letter that
Mrs. Bostock was incapable of un
derstanding. The iirst was that it
was an unusual thing for him to
write before going awav, es
pecially as he had bade his
family farewell in the morning.
and the second was that, while hehad
begun it in bis customary flowing
hand, the last page w written very
hastily, in fact, the missive being of
the nature of a final farewell. The
letter bearing the postmark of 7 p.
m. would indicate that he did not ex

day. It was directed in care of
Thomas Downing, his son-in-law,
who also lives in South Rock Island.

We hold to the use of both gold
and silver as the standard money of
the country, and to the coinage of
both gold and silver without discrim

mintage; but the dollar unit of coin
age of both metals must be of equal
