A New Arrangc-ment That is
WHY THE BOARD ADOPTED IT.
The riwn of Nona ..
. ... , uraiiM KchooW. and Iin.
mlmal at 3.30 p. m.-OUoontei.t Among
Pupllu anil Why it u So.
With the commencement of the
present term of sc'iool, the hours of
session at the High school were re
stored to the old arrangement origi
nally observed at the building, the
board of education having so decreed.
For several years it has been the
custom at the High school to assem
ble school at 9 a. in., dismiss for 45
minutes at noon, and reassembling
at 12:45, dismiss lor the day at 2:15.
The advantage of this plan appeared
in the fact that the High school at
tendance was made up from all lo
calities of the city, an.l the noon day
intermission was intended nn.ro for
luncheon than wi.h the idea of going
home, the thougl t being that pupils
could have their dinners, where de
sirable, at 2:15 when school suspended
for the day. Many of the High
school scholars pot into this way of
doing, accustomed themselves to it,
and to them as othe teachers the
arrangement a- very satisfactory
The '-w I'lan Not 1'opulnr.
During the vast week the High
school has been regulated by the same
rules regarding the hours of session
as are applicable to the graded
schools, with t ie exception .f dis
missal a half hour earlier in the after
noon, viz: the -norning session le
ginning at !:()( and running until
noon, and the afternoon's comnienc
inT at 1 ::K and ontinuing until 3::? I.
Tho mutterings of discontent that
have come to tl e ears of the Ai;;t s
from High school pupilsare sulhVient
to indicate that the arrangement is
not received with approval on the
part of the pupils, at least.
The Autii s has sought to ascertain
the motive of fie board in abolishing
the hours of session at the Higii
school, and the purpose of the hoard
may be sumnied up in the words the
hope of gaining- better work. It is
asserted that ti ider the system of sus
pending scIkx 1 for t lie day at 2:15,
pupils got ii to habits which led
them to drift away from school, at
first neglecthg their studies and
eventually losing all interest in
A!UH' of I In- System 'luiim-1.
It is-f tu ther stated in support of
tins ineory tlat a nunioer of High
school boys v ho were supposed to
have reached the age of discretion
and judgment had gotten into the
habit of coming down town in the af
ternoon and forming associations
that they would not if kept in school
an hour and a quarter later, and it
has also been said that some of tlie
High school l.ovs have been accus
tomed to met ting in an abandoned
hut not far f r itn t lie schools. and put
ting in the afternoon card playing,
etc. It is to (d.viate this, the hoard
claims, as veil as to give more
time to study and instruction
that the retu-n has been made to the
Superintendent of Schools Kemble
advanced the argument in favor (if
the later session, that many homes
were discommoded by the system
which lias prevailed, that while pu
pils were no1 expected to go home,
many of theiu did, ami were obliged
to gulp down t heir dinners and has
ten back to Kt-hool, thus eating their
meals in a hurry, while at the sanie
time they were receiving instruc
tions in on-- branch of the High
school work cautioning against such
habits of diet.
Regular monthly Meeting of the Citizens'
Association Last Evening;.
The regular meeting of the Rock
Island Citizens'" Improvement asso
ciation was held last evening in its
rooms, President Carse in the chair.
The standing of the association was
talked over, and the new secretary,
J. AV. Day, said that he had not been
able to get the books yet; but thought
that he would soon and then he
would undertake the job of collect
ing the old accounts and soliciting
the members to come out to the
meetings. Mr. Day was of the opin
ion that enough money could be col
lected to pav all outstanding indebt
edness of the association, and put it
in good shape.
Mr. Crampton, of the executive
committee, reported that the absence
from the city of 'some of his commit
tee prevented holding a conferenc in
regard to keeping or discontinuing
the present rooms, and a meeting
was arranged to be held at 4 o'clock
this afternoon at the oflice of Wil
liam Jackson, when a decision will
probably be reached in regard to the
Quite a diiscussion was entered
into by the members present in re
gard to the Columbian grounds.
Mr. Jackson said that the original
purchase had b -en with a view of
providing the public with a recrea
tion park on a large scale and not for
speculative purposes. A park on
the Columbian grounds in full view
of all the people entering the city by
the Kock Island, the Burlington "anil
the Milwaukee trains would create a
very favorable impression of the
city. Aside from the advantages . of
possessing anil impressing, the city
would be given an opportunity to ac
quire ground that in a few" years
would become of great pecuniary
value on very easy terms. The dis
cussion was general anil animated,
ami the advantages of having a park
at this point well set forth. The
members all seemed to agree that it
w ould not only be a big thing for the
upper end, but of lasting bene tit to
the cit v.

A Collision and Narrow Fseape on Third
Beckless drivers endulging in a
brush on Third avenue last evening
caused an accident resulting in an
exceedingly narrow escape for Mrs.
P. W. Rinck, wife of the business
manager of the Union, and for
which, if apprehended, the drivers
ought to be severely dealt with.
At about S o'clock Mr. and Mrs.
Rinck were getting into their bug
gy on the side of the avenue
that was somewhat dark between
Twelfth and Thirteenth streets, and
Mrs. Rinck having just entered the
vehicle was still standing, when, com
ing down the avenue she beheld two
or three rigs tearing along in an ex
citing race, the drivers being appar
ently unmindful of all else or
their surroundings. The lady seeing
that a collision was unavoidable,
screamed to the drivers to turn out,
but they paid no heed, and in a sec
ond one of the rigs had collided with
the back wheel of Mrs. Rinck's bug
gy, capsizing it. and throwing her
out on tb,e shoulder and arm. While
her feet were caught in the wheel.
The horse at once became panic
stricken, and had not Mr. Kinck
promptly seized it by the bit the con
sequences might have been much
more serious than they reallv were.
Mrs. Rinck was carrie"d into a house,
and Dr. Kinyon summoned, and later
she was conveyed to her
home on Twenty-third street.
While suffering " from bruises
and shock, there are happily
no apprehensions felt as to an alarm
ing culmination of her injuries.
Who Were They?
The buggy occupied by Mrs. Rinck
was damaged considerably, as must
als i have been the colliding vehicle,
though the driver did not stop to in
vestigate, nor did any of his com
panions halt. One of the rigs, how
ever, turned out at Twelfth street,
but the others went on down Third
avenue. The police have something
of a clew that may lead to their

against the following parties: Frank
Stoltz, uttering a forged instrument;
F. A. Brown, larceny of a horse, and
George Radford, F. " S. Kirtley and
Mike Whitty, breaking and entering.
Will Messenger was discharged. He
was put in jail some time ago on the
charge of stealing $ 20 from a disrep
utable house, and although the evi
dence was conclusive against him, it
was decided that he had been pun
ished enough, as the money was re
covered. He had an ax thrown at
him when committing the theft and
had spent a couple of months in jail
since. He was not one of the gang
that attempted to escape, either, al
though he had an opportunitv of
joining in the rush the other dav.

Observer F. J. Walz has returned
from his trip up the river and is pre
paring his report for forwarding to
the chief of the weather bureau at
Washington. A reply will be await
ed and it is thought that the new
system of river reports and forecasts
will be put actively in operation
about Oct. 1.
The observer left Davenport on the
Verne Swain several days ago, took
the Sidney f.om Clinton to LaCrosse,
the government boat Alert from La
Crosse to Winona, and was trans
ported by Capt. McCaffrey from Wi
nona to Stillwater on the Robert
Douw. Arrangements were made at
Clinton and other points on the Mis
sissippi not at present reporting at
Davenport, at the mouth of the Chip
pewa, Wisconsin and St. Croix rivers,
Red Wing and other important
points, for reports of changes in the
stage of water. The collected re
ports from those up river points with
the forecast of this section of the
river will be returned to all reporting
stations, and an interchange of re
ports will be made between the Dav
enport station and that at St. Louis,
whose observer has charge of the
work from hern down to "that city.
The system w ill place at the com
mand of mill men, the packet com
panies, the public in general, the
most complete system of river re
ports that have ever been inaugur
ated, and will prove a valuable addi

The Mountain Belle brought down
eight strings of lumber.
The Cyclone and Kit Carson each
came down with sixteen strings of
The West Rambo. Jo Long aud
Vere Swain came down and" went
back up stream.
The temperature on the Rock Isl
and bridge at noon was 80: the stage
of water was .79.
The big packet, Pittsburgh, came
down this morning, having been de
layed by low water.
The Denkmann will make a short
trip to Savanna Bay, and on its re
turn will lay up for the season.
The case of Albert Roscnlield
charged with assault with a dcadlv
weapon, was nolle prossed this
morning and a charge of assault and
batterv brought instead. He de
manded a trial by jury and the case
was postponed until 2 o'clock this
afternoon by Justice eld.
Tim Kenolev was lined flO and
costs by Justice Weld this morning
for assaulting Louis Gross, a 14-year
old lad. irom the evidence given
it seems that young Gross and one
of Kenoley's children had some
trouble, and Kenolev happened along
ana knocked young Gross down re
peatedlv, Maj. Beardslev and Mich
ael Gritlin testifying to having seen
him grab the boy by the throat and
pick him up and throw him down
upon the sidewalk. Kenolev paid
his tine and was let go.
In Justice' Weld"s court George
Bugge, Charles Youd. Alvin Young-
Oft T P-
green, Peter Bugge and Ted Bugge
were tried for violating the fish laws
The charge was preferred bv Fish
Warden James First, the prisoners
being accused of spearing tisli in
Rock river. Peter Bugge and Ted
Bugge were discharged for want of
evidence, and the rest pleaded guil
ty. George Bugge was fined $20 and
costs, and Alvin Younggreen $10
and costs. Charles Youd was also
lined $10 and costs, which line was
remitted during good behavior.
Fred Schuett was arrested on a
warrant sworn out by his wife for
assault and battery. The trouble
grew out of no one know what, the
evidence being a conglomeration of
sister-in-law, brother-in-law, daugh
ter, Fred and Pauline, but through it
all Justice Weld found evidence
enough to line Fred f25 and costs
for pushing his wife off a porch and
injuring her, Fred stating that he did
not deny that he did it, because his
sister-in-law would not get out of the
house. On a peace warrant Fred was
held in $500 bonds to keep the peace
tor 12 months.
Not Yet Appointed.
A Washington Dispatch says:
Telegrams of congratulation are
being sent to Mr. Spangler, of Chi
cago, on his speedy appointment as
collector of internal revenue to suc
ceed Collector Mamer. Just what
foundation there is for the congrat
ulations cannot be traced to any au
thoritative source. Mr. Spangler's
friends are very confident, however,
that his nomination will be sent to
the senate within the next few days.
Representative Forman, who is ac
tively interested in Spangler's behalf,
was at tlie treasury department late
this afternoon with a view to getting
definite information from Mr. Car
lisle, as to the appointment, but the
secii'tary had gone to the capitol.
MrJFornian believes that the recent
nomination of Mr. Murphy as reve
nue collector for the Thirteenth Illi
nois district started the ball rolling
so far as Illinois is concerned, and
that the other revenue districts will
be attended to at once. If Spangler
secures the appointment it will be a
triumph of the Cook county democ
racv, Ben T. -Cable and southern
Illinois influences, as against Sena

Without long-tailed words, the !
statement in plain clothes is that the
manufacturers of furniture have
found out that if they will give
us their best material designs and '.

We have just placed on sale a car- j

These are by far the best values ever placed in this market for

any set you could buy elsewhere for from $18 to $20.
FOLDING BEDS $19 to $45 tlyse are special.
WARDROBES $10 to $20.
You can't equal them elsewhere for price, style, qualitv or
