physically and mentally, and had
never used glasses, although he
would bave been 90 years of age next

went to bouth America to introduce
a manilla dressing material. He was
a wide reader, and was thoroughly
posted on tbe affairs ol the day. la

If ever again it is decided by the
United States government to unleash
the dogs of war. Rock Island will at
once become a pivoted point of per
haps greater international import

equal size in this country. Not the

itself, the site of the largest arsenal
belonging to this government. Rock
liland is in tbe Mississippi river,
about three hundred miles above St.
Louis and 100 miles below Galena.
It is nearly three miles in length and
varies in width from one-fourth to
three-fourths of a mile, and con
tains, above low water mark, 970
acres. Lengthwise, the island lies
nearly cast and we.t, such being the
course of tbe river at this point.
The civil war early showed the need
of 'a great armory and arsenal in the
