All one wants to do in order to spend an exceedingly pleasant after noon is to visit VandrufTs and Pijr islands and call on anv or all of tut' oiiierent campers. J he camping season has once more broken forth in all its 'glory, and people are begin- in;: to hntl some sliatl.v spot where they may spend a week or so away iroin the care 01 ortunarr routine. Yesterday afternoon an Alters rep resentative visited both the islands and was received in a most hospita. ble manner. C:imp Liberty is the familiar and plrasant resort of Capt. J. M. Beards ley and family. The camp was readied at about 4: JO and a pleasant chat was had with Mr. llearusley Besides Capt. and Mrs. Beardsley, Mr. and Mrs. (J. E. Bailey, Mr. and Mrs. 1). B. Shaw. Marvin and C. L. Bennlsley and Die Hanson occuyv quarters in Camp Liberty. Kight here it must be said that Ule Hanson is noted in that locality far being the greatest fisherman that ever put foot onatidriins island. He has come honestly by this title, for it is a very cold day that Ole doesn't land from 22 to ;m bass. Bidding adieu to the inhabitants of Camp Lilicrty, Camp Oklahoma was visited. Everybody knows good natured and jovial Dick Colenierc, and t'uey also know that he is one of the liiiest fellows in the land. On June 7. Dick, accompanied by his wife and daughters, the Misses Ella and Katie Colenierc, and Peter Mel grem. went into camp on VnndrulT's islam!, having lirst secured the pri vilege of the whole isliind. Oklahoma is the supply camp of Vand ruff's. 'and genia! Dick is the proprietor. Knot beer, soda water, ice cream, cigars and minnows can be secured at all times. Besides this. Dick rents space on tin- island to campers at reason able rates. After a jovial chat and refreshments with Dick and his in teresting family, the representative s: rolled over to" Big island, and after a 5-ininiitc walk from the street car line. livc in sight of Camp Sunrise. Camp Sunrise is situated directly across from the Tower and in the midst of a thicket. It is one of those pretty spots where nature has shown its generosity and which man appre ciates. L'udor the widespreading branches of a gigantic locust tree, CainpSiinrisc is pitched, aud a jollier or more hospitable set of campers it would indeed be hard to find. 9 The party is chaperoned by Mr. and Mrs. Frank N. Horn and Mrs. (i. P. Kiigg, aud consists also of the Misse Clara and Tillie llass, Agnes and Anna Bixby. Grace Jocb, Carrie Kemhlo and Lizv.ie Carse, and Carl HeJlpenstcll. F. W. Bahusen, Charles Lippineotl, M. A. Steele, E. Brooch man. John Wilbur and G. H. Kcrives. the latter of Baltimore. Comfort In Cool Shade. Imagine, if you can, 17 or 18 young folks, whose object is to have an excellent time away from the heat anil drag of the city, and then form an idea of what degree of success the inmates of Camp Sunrise are meeting with. Mcssdamcs Horn and Kugg display their culinary talents in a manner highly gratifying to the al ways hungry campers, while the other lady members of the camp well, they just work, that's all. .John G. Lutton, of Lc Rov, N. Y., a prominent grocer and G. A. R. man, says: "I nave been troubled with indigestion and biliousness for years. J rieu rarks' tea and it has cured inc. I recommend it to every body." bold oy uartz & UHemeyer. A SENSIBLE VIEW. What the Street Car Company Ilaa Done for the Community. The Davenport Democrat has come around to the sensible view as re gards the relations of the Davenport as iiock isianu street Railway to this community,' endorsing now the stand maintained by The Akgcs through out all the coiupany's nps and downs in the throe cities, and for which reason this papnr has upheld the company in its struggles to perfect ami pruviue a ursi-ciass system SUCH as wc now enjoy. To a paper that proffered its friendly aid to an insti tution wnen mends were needed, it is gratifying to observe the tendency of the press in general to place its sanction upon the company. indicating that what has been said in behalf of the company in the past has been fully verified by the events that have since come to pass. The Democrat's article, which ap pears on its editorial page, is ap pended in full: The Davenport & Uock Island Street Railway company for tho past five years has been before the public almost constantly. Its affairs have been discussed in the city council and on the street. It has put down tracks and it has taken them up. It has had troubles of its own and also some that have been made for it by the public. Taking both sides of the account into consideration, the Democrat is of the opinion, and it thinks the peo ple are generally of the same opinion, that Davenport is under an everlast ing debt of gratitude the men who own and manage the street car sys tem here and in the cities of Koek Island and Moline. This trinity of cities has never before enjoyed such a complete service as is furnished at the present time. It has come so gradually that one fails to realize it who has not traveled over the differ ent lines and all of them. The cap ital invested runs above the million dollar mark, and the number of men on the pay roll equals that of a large factory. Compare th streets of Davenport, Bock Island and Moline now with their condition when the electric cars were lirst operated. The change that has been made in the way of street paving has quickened "im provements on ull sides. In place of ruts and holes, over which it was im possible to haul large loads or to drive with pleasure, there are now miles upon miles of th best roadbed in the west. Has it occurred to any body that the street car company "is resjxinsible for this to a greater de gree than are the city canncils or the people? Can it be doubted that if the street car syndicate had not been ready to put down the money, that this improvement in great part would not have materialized for years? It is now possible to drive from one end of DavenjKirt to the other, and from the river to Central park on solid brick. On the other side of the river the paving extends from East Moline to Koek Island. There are some blocks of street here and across the river where the electric cars do not ruu which are bricked, but the aggre gate of such streets is small com pared with those covered bystreet ear tracts, in other words, street car paving has followed the electric ears, and while projerty owners have been called upon to meet assessments against abutting property, the cost has been divided among" hundreds. It has come out of the street car com pany in a lump, and tho amount is something enormous, being no less than $170,000. Worth Thinking Atiout. Take another view of the benefits Count the new houses that are coin"' up, and it will be found that most of them arc within easy reach of the electric tracks. No part of Daven port is growing so rapidly as that 111 the vicinity of the Grand avenue school house. Without the extension of the street car tracks to that part of town, the improvement there could not have been so great. The same favorable coninirut might be made in other directions. The Democrat has called attention to this phase of the street car ques tion because it is worth thinking about. This city, and the cities across the river, owe more to the street car company than can bo paid by any patronaye extended. The men who have pnt dowu their mon ey, and who will pay out thousands of dollars more of it this year, have benefited this city beyond estimate. Not for years can Htcy hope to real ize the returns that have already come to citizens and property hold ers. A Surprise Party. A pleasant surprise party was giv en on Master Elmer Oberg at his home on Ninth street and Third avenue Monday night. The following little people attended: M-uil Br.idley.

The Teachers Inst I tale at the Rock Island High School. In the arithmetic exercises in the county institute yesterday morning. Mr. Krohn carefully developed the method of presenting fractions to be ginners. Every principal should be proven by objects or demonstration, and the pupils encouraged to manu facture their own rules. Miss Muse's treatment of the syn thetic reading system receives much praise. "Johnny"' and his story seem to hold a very important posi tion in educational literature at pres ent. After dinner the teachers, who. now that the roll is being called are acquiring the habit of punctuality, gathered in the assembly room at 1:30 for vocal music. Rules for re organizing the key letter in any given signature were discussed, and some two part singing indulged in. There are quite a number of very competent singers among the school ma ams. When Supt. Marshall succeeded in getting Miss Anna Davis, of Austin, III., to take charge oT the primary work at the institute, he congratu lated himself. Kesults show that he had good reason to do so. She has proven quite a favorite, and never tails to hold the interest of her hear ers. 1 esterday afternoon she showed the value of having good stories to use as the basis of language work. In discussing the ideal imaginative narrative for the use of children, it was decided that such a story should be simple, childlike, interesting, full of adventure, short, classic and of a high moral tone. Prof. McCorniiek's talk on geogra phy brought out the fact that some of the teachers did not know how to distinguish between the right and left bank of a river. The teaching of local geography was urged upon the teachers and nicely illustrated. A wise teacher will sometimes adjourn, her class in elementary geography from the hard seats of the "little red school house'' to the velvety bank of some near-by swift-running brook, and there teach from Nature herself the mysteries of miniature rivers, islands, peninsulas, capes, etc. Miss Davis talked from 3 to 3:40on writing in the elementary grades. The good features of different sys tems were discussed, and specimens of off-hand work by pupils who wrote for the first time were shown. She docs not favor the teaching of pen manship by the old routine of mem orizing seven or eight principles of letters and writing by rule. Many of the teachers learned for the firs't time of the new system of vertical writing, which is being strongly urged by many of the leading educa tors. On account of its meeting all requirements from the standpoint of hygiene, legibility and rapidity, it is undoubtedly the coming style'of pen manship. Of course Miss Davis in sists upon people writing with the whole-arm ami fore-arm movement. The linger movement is bound to go into innocuous desuetude. At 4 o'clock a gentleman repre senting J. C. Jacobs' business school of this city, took the floor aud gave another talk on penmanship, and in cidentally offered a real nice book for sale at less than cost. Dr. Krohn and Prof. Hatch looked after the regular work in grammar ana science methods. Notes. There will lie an examination for certificates ou Saturday. All sessions arc open to the public. lsuors arc maae wcKsonie. W. W. Bailey, of Coal Valley. probably ranks as the favorite gentle man among the fair ones. The instituters all agree that Prof. J. A. Bishop, ex-principal of our mgn scuooi, is greatly missed this year. The talented young authors, Messrs. Gilpin and Price, are dis tributing prospecti of a forthcoming puoucauon. Only a few of the institute folks attended the Bishop Warren lecture last night on account of the rain. They missed a line treat. The teachers arc wondering if their old friend, David Fclmley, will be made the democratic nominee to day for the state superintendency. It's fun to watch the school ma'ams march after the close of the vocal music sessions. Lots of them have difficulty in putting the left foot down when they should. Don't forget Dr. Krohn's lecture to night at 8 o'clock. It will simply be an informal talk, a lecturette, so to speak. "The Human Brain" is the subject. Sometimes the teachers get to whispering during the recitations, although they don't allow it in their own class. It is entertaining to lis ten to Dr. McCormick as he volun teers a few remarks for the benefit of the thoughtless ones. It doesn't take them long to stop. The Ladles. The pleasant effect and perfect safety with which ladies may use the California liquid laxative, Syrup of Figs, under all conditions, makes it their favorite remedy. To get the true and genuine article, look for the nam of the California Fig company, printed near the bottom of the paek- For Over Fifty Yean.
