TOPICS FOR FARMERS.

Milan. Dec. 14. The first subject
on the programme before thecnunty
farmers' institute held at tan town
hall here this week; was ''Rotation
of Crops." and -brought out an ani
mated discussion. The treneral opin
ion was that seeding to clover forund
the basis of rotation, and is an abso
lute necessity to continued fertility
of the land that manuring should be
done on the sod without regard to
the season of the year.
At the first session on Wednesday,
the most interesting question on the
program, 'Souric of Profit on the
Farm," was discussed at great
length, .and by a lare numlier of
speakers, and a fund of information
valuable to all classes of farmers
alike, and the instruction given by
practical farmers would alone have
well paid the agriculturist to have
spent the time, had there not been
another session held. In the" after
noon, "Spraying Frnit Trees" and
"Corn Culture" were talked on, and
a committee was appointed to exper
iment with the spraying of all kinds
of fruit and vines, and report at the
first meeting of the institute next

AltGt s: As a taxpayer of the city I
wish to complain of" the disgraceful
mudholc supposed to do duty as a
sidewalk on the east side of Seven
teenth street, between Fourth and
Fifth avenues. Why don't -the eity
officials enforce the law and compel
the property owners to lay projK-r
walks there, or else put them down
and charge the expense to the abut
ting property? Such walks as those
in question might be to"crated In a
village, but should . not lie counte
nanced in a city where public im
provement has been so marked in
the last few years. , Let the crusade
against defective walks be taken up
in all portions of the city, until
this crying evil is corrected.

. An unhappy terminafion of a lull
in police business, rs1t:d tkis
morning at abowt tiZi 'cIock . in - a.
shooting affray.-which occurred "on
First avenue, near Nineteenth street.
Few people in Rock Island have failed
to notice during the last ''three or
four months, an eccentric looking
darkey going around ' the street
wearing a silk hat and carrying with
him a box highly ornamented with
brass, having much the appearance
of a large kodak. In his hat he wore
a card with the inscription, "Prof.
Brown," in great large letters. This
individual claimed to be a fortune
teller and was noticeable tor the un
usual combination of a strong Ger
man accent to his colored dialect.
Jle moved his family from Daven-
porfsome time ago, and took np his
abode in Rock Island at the place
mentioned above! In the house at
that time were two families, one
named Scott, and the other Flinch.
About the same .time "Tobe" Alex
ander returned ' to tho city, after
spending several years in the twni-
pentiary- for larceny of a seal cloak
from Mrs. 1. or ken. in this city.
Then it was that Brown's troubles
began. He avers that dining the
time that has ensued, Alexander has
continually been . making advances
toward his (Brown's) wife, and in
consequence of this, the two have of
ten had words over it, and this
morning, without any apparent
cause. Alexander ipvited Browu out
side the door to fight.
Brown Areepta the ChnUeace.
' Brosvn, who was washing his face
at the time, wiped it and went out
with Tobe. Then it was that Brown
claims Alexander drew a knife and
threatened his life Brown drew a
S2-calibre' revolver, and told Alex
ander to -put up that knife and go
in the house," but instead of comply
ing, he made for him. and bang! went
the pistol almost in his face. Alexan
der turned ami went down to Dr. Kin
yon's residence, and had the wout d
examined and dressed. - The doctor
found that the ball had entered the
right breast, and had lodsred in the
lutiff. Probins for the lall was use
less, and it was left where it was.
and the results, of course, are donbt

The police were notified, and Offi

was arrested and brought to the sta
tion, where ho told the above story.
Alexander claims that when he and
Brown were in the yard fighting Wil
lis struck him on" the head with a
large clnbj but Willis claims he was
in bed when he heard the shot fired,
and came down to see what was the
trouble, and did not 6cc the fight and
had no hand in it. -
Alexander bears a .bad reputation,
and is not at all popular among his
associates, they claiming that he is
very abusive and quarrelsome. Im
mediately after the trouble Prof,
Brown disappeared, and has not as
yet been fonnd. although the police

Crash. Baac, fiamah!
A bold attempt was made about 2
o'clock this morning to rob the jew
elry store of M. E. Nabstedt, 406
West Second street, Davenport, but
the burglars were foiled: first, be
cause of the great noise they made,
and secondly, because of the sweet
soprano screams of two women living
upstairs over the store. The women
say that at "about 2 o'clock they
heard something strike a window,
and the crash of broken glass, and
suspecting that an attempt was be
inj; made to rob the store, of course,
the women screamed. Evidently,
this frightened the men, for they de
sisted, leaving only a great large
