It sometimes happens that wo mast go a&icad to learn the news of borne. but it has not been imagined before that Rock Island waa to be held up to other go-ahead cities of Illinois as an example ot error, oeioio at least she had been told wherein she had misbehaved.

No, no, it is all wrong; there is some great, deep, hidden mystery somewhere, and before the setting of another day's sun, we must hunt out the 3on of a gun who has thus done us wrong. Iiat the question is, who, with slander on his lips and falsehood in his heart, his gone abroad to smirch the city's good name? Who has held Rock Island up to scorn, as a dread ful warning to another city on the verge of following in her footsteps. There is but one thing that will satl ate for the evil, the unprovoked evil that has been done us at this time.
