The Tri-City Packing and Provision company has received a large shi- menl of very fancy Christmas cattle and sheep, and out of lhl shipment the company has put one carload of these Christmas cattle ' and fancy sheep on the Rock Island market. not con lining tbcm to its own mar ket at the corner of Twentieth street and Fourth avenue, but in the best and leading shops in town. These elegant cornfed cattle were selected from among many thousands, and mav be seen at any of our first-class hops. The Tri-City Packing and Provision company has experienced great prosperity since its establish- ment in the coinniunit v, and has al- ready acquired a reputation through the energv and exticricnoe enlisted in the business, and the trade of the three cities may well respond, as in deed it has, to the enterprising dis- Msition shown by tbo company toward the locality.

Dat the laMalit oa Warkiac mt World's rata- Plaisias The Chicago Herald furnishes the following information of local inter lest: Thousands of recent exhibitors at the fair have lately received a rather mysterious communication from Mor- ton Yale Cadv. one of the judges in the manufactures department. Mr. Cadv sends out a letter telline the ..klkitn.. Ili.t Ik trat Ikam tk. : .... , exact woruinc oi ineir uiwiumas, m that they can use the judges' reports for advertising purposes monins in advance of the dehverv of the diplo mas. - He offers to get this informa tion for tin. Mr. Cady gives as reference a long list of employes of John Boyd Thacher's office, most of whom happen to be custodians of the reports in question. In concluding his offer, he cautions - the exhibitors to regard the communication as con fidential. At present Mr. Cady's address is Washington, D. C , care John Boyd Thacher. Althongh he is not on Mr.- Thacher's salary list, he seems to have free access to the records of the oflice. Several commissioners said yester day that, while Mr. Cady's venture might, under a generous construc tion, be rvsrarded as legitimate, it was calculated to bring the awards committee into disrepute, and would therefore be discouraged. "it win ing purWlv held bick to cable Mr. Cadv t. sell this information. said General St. Clair, and while such mav not be the case, the awards com mittee cannot afford to have that suspicion attached to it." As to Mr. Cady. Mr. Cady lives in Molinc, liu lie has letters of the highest character. among them one from Charles II. Deere, the national commissioner. who lives in that town. National Commissioner Charles M. Travis, of Indiana, also endorsed him. "I un derstood he was going into business,' said Mr. Travis yesterday, and knowing that he had been a good judge, I very willingly gave him a letter. If I had known he would have used it fur such purpose I would have withheld it." ataart Ratmoa Caarrla.

Tracy's Tenperaace Talk. A homely illustration used by Dr. Trncj. who o,ens a crusade in Rock Island next week, in one of his lec tures at Davenport this week would, 1 if it could make its impression upon parents in Rock Island, be a valua ble legacy of the present series of meetings. The text was furnished by a careful" old housewife who al ways went after the turkeys when they failed to come home "at roost ing time," ami its application was too plainly evident to need much elaboration. The doctor turned his eyes to the gallery, and inquired, 'boys and girls, where are yon every evening at roosting timer' " Then, locusing his glance upon me lower part of the bouse, be cried: Parents, do you go after your chil dren when thev don't come home at roosting time?" The doctor is of the opinion that a good many parents aren't as careful of their children as tho old house wife was of her turkeys, and who will say that he is not fight? The 2,000 mark was passed by the pledge signers at the Tracy, Davcn port, meeting last evening. Folic 1'olnm.
