Importance of Keeping up Ap pearances. A3 BOCI BLAH) IS DOUG. Oatward Complete A Kansas City paper which is ad rocating the extension of pubHo im provements in that city. Has fur. nlsbed an analysis of the elements which have contributed to Chicago's true greatness, in which in enumer atlng the advantages in this direo. tion it is said: It is not an old city, but in the matter ef parks, driveways, boule vards and other improvements that contribute to the comfort and pleas ure of the people, it is far in advance 01 other towns that are older, and the fact that it is making more rapid progress in the race for leadership than its rivals is no doubt attributa ble to that fact. A oity which is pleasant to lire in is certain to grow, ror, other things being equal, sensl- oie people are sure to select such a plaoe for their homes. Chicago owes something.no doubt. to its location on the shore of Lake Michigan, and is indebted in a meas ure to the fact that it has long been the undisputed metropolis cf the great west, the marrelous resources of which formed the basts of a vast commercial structure. Bat tbe en ergy, the industry, and the sagacity of the men and women who hare guided its progress and shaped its destiny have had much to do with its grand achievements. The moss, backs who retard the progress of other cities have no influence in Chi cago. The knockers and croakers who oppose parks and fine streets, and magnificent avenues were run down early in the life of that city, and the result is that today Chicago not only has the largest park area, but the greatest number and most hand somely adorned parks of any city in this country. It is not surprising. therefore, that it also has the largest population of any city in the United States, except greater New York, and that its growth has been unpre cedented in rapidity and regularity in 1 no nistory 01 tne world's munici palities." The Advantage Hot. There is no one familiar with the development that has taken p:ace in Bock Island in tbe past few yearB wno iaiis to realize tbe important part that public improvements have played. The park system so far established has been the envy of other cities, and has carried the name of Rock Island far and wide. So, too. hare the paved streets, boulevards and graded sidewalks. But while we have gone ahead here with these internal improvements, we have neg- lectea me outward appearance. Much as it is true to the contrary in this instance, yet people are as apt 10 interpret 11 a sham to a city wnicn, no matter how greatly It beautifies in one respect, if it neg lects in another. The improvements snouiu not ds con&ned to the inter 1 . . ior. They should appear on the outer edges, lest the wayfarer who neaaa tnis way has his notions 1 0 formed by the appearances whi nrst greet ms eye as to deter h m from coming farther. This applies 10 me river irons and the outskirts of the city. The levee should be im proved, and then the park and boule vard system such as will give to the surrounding country the advantages d we eojoy 10 me city, until broader scope of improvement adopted, such as is outlined in tbe river front and park and boulevard projects. Bock Island will fail to do justice to herself. Circuit Coart. The circuit court will be re con rened at 9 o'clock tomorrow morn lag. The September term does not con rene until the third Monday under the new act. The May and January terms remain unchanged, convening on the nrst Monday. A number of auits returnable the first Monday in September, have been filed in the circuit clerk's office, but the change In the time of the convening of the term does not affect them. There i a clanse.in the statutes which covers the point, holding that summonses, renires, papers, bonds, subpoenas, writs, etc., shall be deemed and taken and shall have the same force as if the same had been made and served for and returnable to terms of court as fixed by the law making sucn changes."

The inquest over the remains of Adam Alday to determine the cause of his denth, which it is alleged was the result of poison administered with murderous intent, was resumed at Coroner Eckhart's office in the court house this morning. Mrs. Haas Osbar, Alday 'a lormer wife, attended. State's Attorney Searle is conducting the examination of witnesses in behalf of the estate, And J. L. Haas and J. T. Kenworthy appear for Mrs. Osbar. Chemist franx naoier, 01 daven port, who analysed portions of Aider's body, says in his report: "The stomach and large intestine I found to be in a fair state of pres ervation: tissue somewhat dry, fatty and quite firm in texture. I removed eight grams of thick fluid, which I found to consist of blood and serum. but found no food or other solid foreign matter. Chemical reagents revealed the presence of arsenious acid in solution in minute quantities and free hydrochloric acid. No other foreign matter could be de tected. The liver was found to be in a remarkable state of preservation, as compared with other parts exam ined. It was firm in texture, ex ternally and internally, with tbe exception of one carlty, about one - half inch square. where softening had taken place to some degree, and a steel gray color revealed. Chemical reagents re- realed the presence of arsenions acid in solution and tree hydrochloric acid as is the stomach and large in testine, but in more distinct quan tity. Bio other foreign matter could be detected. The brain, heart. spleen and kidneys I found in a far more advancel state of disintegra tion, bat none ol these parts con tained foreign poisonous sub stances. " Drs. G. E. Merryman, of Port By. ron, and C. E. Whiteside, of Moline. examining physioians in behalf of the state, submitted a report to the jury that, "We find the body in gen eral In an advanced state of decom position, while the ricera of the thoracic and abdominal regiona. with exception of the longs and spleen, in a fairly good state of pre servation. The liver was firm and of a normal size; the heart also in the same condition as to integrity and size. Stomach empty, with a whitish depo.it on the inner lining; the spleen soft and pulpy; kidneys firm and healthy as to gross appear ance; brain disintegrated to consist ency of butter, and only partly fill ing the skull cavity." .testifying before the iury, Mr. Nadler aaid: I am unable to state the exact quantity of arsenious and hydrochloric acids existing in the dif ferent parts whloh I analjsed. Both acids existed in a much larger quan tity in the liver, but I cannot tell in any instance whether or not their presence was due to injection after death. Ia my opinion poison, if ad ministered before death, wonld have appeared in the analysis of the brain. 1 have aeen livers and bodies disin terred after SO days' burial in a far more advanced state of decomposi tion than that v taken from the body of Adam Alday. In a bottle of fluid purporting to be a sample of em balming fluid, said to have been used in the preparation of Adam Alday 's ooay ior burial, which bottle was tarnished me, I discovered among its ingredients arsenions and hydro- chlorio acids. I cannot say but that the acids l discovered in my analy s s had their presence there for the par pose oi embalming. I discovered a sufficient amount to cause death." The inquest is being continued this afternoon. Teachere' Ioatltato. The county teachers' institute will in all probability be concluded to morrow afternoon, a day earlier than originally determined, owing to the continued excessive heat.

Yesterday afternoon after lessions in botany by trot.

A project has been under consider ation iu Sock Island for several weeks, which if successful will pro ride another bridge to Rock Island arsenal, and thereby afford a sourest of great convenience to workmen employed there and residing in Bock Island and incidentally a boon to the development of the residence sec tion in the east end of the eity. The plan which nas been submitted to the government through Capt. Stan hope E- Blunt, into whose bands the matter has been placed and who has given his approval of it, provides for the erection of a small bridge reaching from in the neighbor hood of of Fortieth street across the slough to the island shore. As the bridge, like others connecting Rock Island arsenal with the main land, wonld abnt Uncle Sam's domain, the onlr feasible proposition would be for the government to build, own and control the bridge. I too of tho Bridge The plan is to construct a 600 foot bridge across the slough from the vicinity of Fortieth street, which would place the approach to the bridge as near on a direct line with the Brooks crossing riaduct it could be located. The bridge will be primarily a foot bridge, but whether or not it will be so eon. structed as to admit vehicles re mains to be determined. There has been no suggestion as to the style or capacity of the bridge. That is to be left wholly with the govern' ment. There are plenty of argu ments in favor of the bridge, and none against it, and the fact that the question of navigation does not enter in, the slongh not being trar ersed, it ought to be readily dis posed of it the government takes hold of it, as it is ia the habit of do ing in matters that are tor the pub lic gooa.

The stage of water at the Bock Isl and bridge at noon was 6.90 and ris ing; the temperature 89. The ferry boat, Charles H. Organ, newly bnilt at Dubuque, passed down yesterday afternoon. Tne boat is a unique specimen of marine ar chitecture, being prorided with a girth of hull which allows teams to drive all around the boat. She is bound for Memphis and has a whis tle whioh sounds similar to that of the Weyerhauser, totally unlike any other boat whistle. It is more than likely that she will do a large cotton business- she is a stern wheeler and a trifla slow, but has every factl ity for making rapid turns, which is required of every ferry boat.
