A novel horseless vehicle appeared
recently in a Modern Woodmen pa
rade at Hinckley, III., and was
awarded first prize. The affair was
so constructed that the "double mo
tors," a pair of mules, were con
cealed in the body of the carriage,
and thus the machine ran as if im
pelled by mechanical power instead of
animal power. The suggestion is
one that might be adopted in connec
tion with the events of the road con
vention and harvest home carnival to
be held in Kock Island next month.
Pitchek Ki.obknianz, formerly of
the Boston National league baseball
club, has not been able to play in the
major organization this season be
cause of the opposition that he aroused
among labor organizations throughout
the country in "scabbing''1 in a Boston
restaurant during a strike last winter.
The Boston management recently re
leased the great t wirier, and the Chi
cago club signed him, but it, too. has
been obliged to let him go on account
of the stand of labor. In Cock Isl

But the governor and the judiciary
which he appoints are to have a veto
upon the acts of the legislature and

widow of the brave Gen. Burnham, of
Machias, Me., when the doctors said
she could not live till morning,"
writes Mrs. S. II. Lincoln, who at
tended her that fearful nicht. "All
thought she must soon die from pneu

During the civil war, as well as in
our late war with Spain, diarrhoea
was one of the most troublesome dis
eases the army had to contend with.
In many instances it became chronic
and the old soldiers still suffer from
it. David Taylor, of Wind Ridge,
Greene county, Pa., is one of these.
He uses Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera

Clalan That Davenport Hal Made a Seri
Says the Davenport Times: "In
the opinion of many old residents
who hare lived in Davenport long
enough to know that the Mississippi
river is a very uncertain quality, and
of gigantic strength, the city seems
to have made - a big mistake in the
making of the retaining wall for the
new levee. Prophecy is made that
within a rear from date government
dredge boats will be dredging in an
endeavor to keep open the 6tream
in front of the levee, which at present
affords such an excellent landing
place for the steamers. In proof of
their contention they point across to
Rock Island, where,, with a levee but
a year old, the government dredge
boats are busy today clearing away
tbe sand accumulated close to the
levee in such a way that the landing
for the boats will be cut off when low
water comes. Ib is difficult for the
boats at present to make a landing at
Rock Island even when three feet of
water separates the present stage from
the low water mark.
