No Time Like the Presest to Build a Court House. LABOR TEE GREAT BLHEFICIARY. TEACHING THE TEACHERS. Thn Cost Will Not be Felt by the Tax-psy- nWhllelatlnEnfllt WIHbaTraoEeoa osny to Carry the Proposltloa-HoUitng to be Oalned by Patting oft Good Works. The fact that Rock Island county is in dire need of a new court house is conceded throughout the county iuc day is not far distant when. no matter what kind of a makeshift were made were the present propo. sition to be defeated, the county will ne Drought race to face again with the necessity that now confronts it. Any Ciprovision that might be in tended to answer the purpose w other than the actual eon. struction, would be but temporary, and sooner or later the court house matter must be disposed of finally. In the light of this fact, the only question that can possibly arise is, is it policy to delay? Will there come a time more favorable to build than bowP If there will not, whv the delay? If there are any tenable grounds for opposition now, will the future lessen such grounds for op- think so. The onlv thins to be settled is, have the people of Rock Island county sufficient pride and public spirit "to erect a new court bouse, and if they have, have they the means can thev afford to? The Aitiit s believes the heart is willing, and the wav is open. The county was never in better condition to issue bonds than now, and with the fact heretofore so clearly and convincingly established that the ad ditional tax will amount to no more than 8 cents to the f 100 of assessed valuation, principal, interest and all, what possible ground is there for hesitancy; what man who reasons with himself can fail to determine to cast his vote on the affirmative side of the issue? Who is there who would not rather pay eicht cents ad ditional taxes every year on every tlOO worth of taxable property he possesses, man to see tbe f3U,iX)0 spent out of the county treasury now for repairs of even a temporary na ture, with the prospect of still more ol tne eopIe s money being ex pended next year and the year fol lowing for the same end, while the annual rental still ffoes on for the offices of county officers who cannot ie accommodated in the present us sightly and disgraceful structures, which exist as reflections on the good sense, spirit and decency of the peo ple of the county, rather than stand ing as a monument to their citizen ship, pride and glory, as does the one in our sister county across the river Labor's Interest. That the time to build is upon ns. is apparent for other reasons than the exacting condition of the county buildings, and the consequent ex pense of putting them in repair and tne generally lavorauie state of coun ty finances. Labor seeks employ ment, and this will give it. The distribution of $125,000 among the labor of this county, which the coun ty board means to stipulate it shall be.will be the bringing of just so mnch outside capital into circulation, and all classes of people throughout the county will partake of the resulting benefits. Why delay the construction of the court bouse, lias anyone a plausi ble answer? A Ursperato Mnlcide. An unknown man committed sui cide yesterday afternoon near the Davenport fair grounds, by allowing a kock island ireight train to ruu over his head. At 8:10, engine No. 343, drawing an extra freight, was passing through the rut near the fair grounds, when Engineer F. Shannon and Fireman C. Jewell saw a man ahead of them. Ue crossed the track several times in an uncertain way in his progress toward the city. When the train was upon him, he sudaeniv threw himself down, and placing his head upon the rail, held himself there, with one hand grasp ing tne iron, ine train covered nim instantly, smashing his head, almost tearing it from the body, and cutting uia mm in sulcus, me remains were immediately taken to an nnder taker's in the patrol wagon; The man was dressed in old clothes, with heavy boots, and a brown cap. In his pockets were a couple of ban dana handkerchiefs, a razor and a corn-hnsking peg. He had sandy nair ana a 6nort sandy mustache There are no means of identification and he evidently was a tramp who had done farm work. Hia age was aoout 4U. The Plow Company Attache. The resident and traveling repre sentatives of the Rock Island Plow company have completed their ' 2- uays' profitable conference and prac tical instruction in Rock Island. The plan thus adopted by the Rock Isl and Plow company of bringing its representatives together and giving tests in tneir presence or the opera tion of implements designed and manufactured by the company and of mutual interchange of ideas as to the requirements of tbe farmers, etc., has proven a wise and most advanta geous one to the company, not only as to its representatives whose annual re union revives interest in their work. bringing them together as one great commercial family, but brings the company more nearly in touch with the agricultural community, which affords the market for its goods.

The school law requires county superintendents' to hold an annual institute for the instruction of teach ers and those who may desire to teach. '" Under ' the administra tion of Superintendent Marshall a series of institutes have been held in this county, which in breadth and character of the work done, were second to none in the state. It is difficult to provide institute work which will exactly meet the needs of all the teachers, and it is only through a close, an intimate ac quaintance with the teachers of the county and their work, that this end can be even approximated. The suc cess of the Rock Island county insti tutes has been due to the character of the work provided, and the broad lines of professional instruct inn pur sued, and the character and the abil ity of the instructors selected to do the work. Equipment of the Teacher. The teacher is the soul of the school courses of study, records, books, etc., are machinery: useful and necessary, of course, but dead things until vitalized by the thought and spirit of the teacher and any sys tem of reform in school work that does not take into account the better equipment of teachers, both in Gen eral culture and professional learn ing, is doomed to defeat. In addi tion to the annual institute. Mr. Marshall has organized a couDty as sociation of teachers, which is made the basis for local institute work. Last year 16 local institutes were held in different parts of the connty, many of which were large and en thusiastic meetings. Institute Districts. This year the county has been di. vided into five institute districts, in which local institutes will be held monthly, and in connection with these meetings, a teachers1 reading circle will be organised. Two books will fie studied this year one along the line of general culture, and one professional. Air. Marshall is using every means at nis command to raise tbe standard of our teachers.

The sentiment of the people is for him ana inose wno are interested in our schools should see that this senti ment is crvstalized into votes.

The purchase of four lots north of the Chippiannock cemetery by the representatives of the Russian Jew ish congregation of this city, to be nsed as a separate burial ground by the people of this creed, has caused considerable uneasiness among the residents of Sonth Rock Island, es pecially those having property in the vicinjty of Brashar street. The reso lution read at the city council mect- ng luesday evening, at the instiga tion of the South Rock Island prop erty holders, attributes the stand taken against tbe cemetery to the fact that it will injuriously affect the valuation of abuttiug property. The petition, which was referred to tbe ordinance and health committees and the city attorney, also asks the council to make some provision preventing tbe purchase of land for burial purposes within one mile of the city limits. If the provisions set forth in the resolution are granted it means the nullification of the usage of the ground purchased by the He- Drews as a cemetery, wherein, it is understood, a body has already been taiu to rest, as the burial grounds are within tbe desired limitations. Action Taken at Sears. After the move taken by South Rock Island property holders became known at Scars, and presumably with the thought that should the Russian Jews be compelled to change their cemetery location, a point fur ther sonth wonld be decided upon, the town council of Sears on Wednes day evening passed by unanimous vote an ordinance in relation to tbe es tablishment of cemeteries. It prohib its such establishment within the corporate limits and One mile hevond. except when duly authorized by tbe poaru oi trustee, ana provides that mis anmorov can oc exercised only on a petition signed by property hold. cib miuj in me neignuornooa oi the proposed cemetery.
