8 THE AKGTJS, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 13, 1902. ASK EXTENSION OF MAIL SERVICE Business Men See It Improvement of Connections Toward South. A movement has been taken up bo llock Island business men to secure railway mail service in and out of the tri-cities tn trains 9 and 10 on the Burlington, generally known as the Beanlstown accommodation. A petition addressed to the superin tendent of railway mail service at "Washington is now being circulated and signed by business men of this city and the matter is being agitated in the various towns along the line of the Burlington between here and Beardstown. The Beardstown accommodation arrives in Hock Island about noon and leaves again for the south about 2:30, If a mail car were attached to it connection would be afforded with through east 'and west-trains on both the Burlington and Santa Fe main lines, to which the local mails now have no access except by wait ing over. The proposed service would be of particular benefit to the business men of the cities along the route, giving them an opportunity to trans mit orders with greater facility and otherwise materially quickening and improving both the local and the general mail connections to the south and southwest. The movement is deserting of the early attention of the postollice department. The Weather. Threatening weather, with probably showers and thun derstorms tonight am I Thurs day. J. M.

The premium list of the fifth annu al fair of the Clinton District Fair as sociation, which will be held at Clin ton, Iowa, Sept. 1) to 12, inclusive, has made its appearance. The past fairs of this association have met vith re markable success, and there is every indication that the one this fall will be fully as good, if not better, than the ones that have preceded it. People of every vocation in this section seem bent on taking a vaca tion except the sneak thief, who is keeping up "his pace with unflagging energy, dust now the species hotel thief is playing a continuous per formance in the three cities, and re ports indicate that he is not over looking anv small bets. Better set lown a good description of your val uables before soft-shoe Johnny calls. If the plans of some of the good people of Rock Island don't miscarry we. may wake up some morning and find that the Milwaukee road has been, compelled to knock the trucks off a box car and set it down here for a station. The evident, plan is to have less business and more street room to do it in. We might close up some idle streets and get more busi ness, but what's the use, we need the room. The Vulcan thunder works, which, according to Greek mythology, hail the contract for forging all the thun derbolts, must have had an extra crew on the night shift last night, or else old Vulcan has merged the es tablishment with some thunder foun dry not so well know.n. From the uproar created last night the thiiu dersmiths must be working piece work and are anticipating an early shut-down of the works. While there has been many good meetings at the Davenport Mile Track in the past, this year's events arc said to eclipse those of any of the previous meets. The attendance, considering the weather, has been good, and the nose finishes of many of the races have brought the specta tors to their feet in wild enthusiasm. All. Otto Birkel and Carl Mueller, two of the Bock Island gentlemen interested in the association, have been particularly active in promot ing a successful meeting.
