Dixon & Eastern Elec trie railway as a freight steam engin eer. He arrived in Sterling about two months ago from Marinette where be was employed by Mr. Higgins. He had much difficulty in securing a desirable house for himself and family, and after much search he made a proposition to Mr. Keller, who has for many years lived the life of a recluse, that he rent his house. The agreement was that Mr. Billings was to have his house rent free, and in return he was to take care of Mr. Keller. The old man had been living alone and the place was dirty and run down. Mr. Billings had the place repapered, cleaned it up, and did much work about the preini.-es. He also showed Mr. Keller much atten tion. This kindness appealed to the old man. ami three weeks ago he made his will. In his will he left everything to Mr. Billings, a man be had known but a few months, but who had kind ness and cheer to give to others. BARSUM & BAILEY PARADE IB SAID TO BE MARVELOUS The parade of the Barnum & Bailey greatest show on earth is this year said to be superb and most marvelous. It contains many novel features of a high educational character which are of great value to every child. The inaugural parade will take place about 10 o'clock a. m., in all cities in which the great show will exhibit. It will be a trial to all persons, tint especially to the little folks, to see the novel features specially designed for this stupendous and snbstanti.il affair. The word novel is used advisedly. For there are L'O of the most elegant and costly floats and triumphal chariots ever devised. They also contain many tableaux vivants, the figures correct ly costumed in the national dress of nearly all the nations on earth, while the teams of splendid horses attached to them are accompanied by outrid ers, similarly attired, representing some special uniform of the nations. One of these huge floats requires a team of 40 elegantly matched horses and is driven hy one man. Besides these there will be many elephants, camels. Roman racing chariots of the same character as those used in the days of Pharaoh, mounted cavaliers, ladies, and performers, displays of open dens of wild animals, carved golden cages of rare beasts, allegorical hariot s illustrating children's fairy tales, nursery rhymes and fables, and a myriad new features never seen In a parade or anywhere else. For with the usual disregard of expense invariably characterizing the Barnum & Bailey show, they secured the best architects, artists and designers to construct an absolutely new parade for the pleasure of the people to sig nalise the home-coming of the show from its triumphal tour of the world. Tin- following brief index is more eloquent in telling the story of this wonderful and costly pageant than anything that can be written of it. and will also be found of great serv ice to many who may wish to know USt what the allegorical floats repre sent, as well as indicating the charac ters typified by the wearers of the ele gant cost utues: America Blue and gold.

Moline, is suffering un told agony and will .be unable to ful fill his duties tor some time, as the re sult of an ac cident which occurred in this city last evening. The accident was a most peculiar one. ami tine that most people would not have expected to occur. Mr. Mixter had been out in his auto mobile, and the water in the cooling tank had run low, which of course re sulted in the tank becoming charged with steam, and a high pressure of steam at that. When Mr. Mixter reached the water ing trough just below the street car barn on Fifth avenue, he decided-to fill the tank. When he took off the cap for this purpose there was a rush of steam, which went into his face Vith terrific force, scalding the face badly. Henri I'lneeri in ll::nriiiKe. He was given surgical attention and his head bandaged in such manner that only two peep holes and a breath ing hole were allowed. It is expected that the skin will peel from the face and that it will be some time before Mr. Mister's lace presents its normal appearance. NOTHING YET HEARD FROM TAMPIC0 SCHOOL TEACHER As yet no light has been thrown on the mystery surrounding the disap pearance of F. N. Saekett, principal of the public school at Tainnico. who Went to Fulton June (i to meet an in surance agent, and who went to Clin ton the next day and disappeared completely.

Marquis, of this city, and Mr. Thompson, of Geneseo. the com mittee of the board of trustees of the Geneseo Collegiate institute who went to Now York to see what help could be secured from the general church board toward raising the grade of the insti tute to that of a college, met with the other trustees in Gcncsco Friday even ing and reported upon the success pf their mission. At the recent meeting of the Gen eral Assembly of the Presbyterian church of the United States, the col lege board was entirely reorganized, new men appointed and the headqaar quarters from Chicago to New York. Furthermore, the general assenihh directed this board to abandon all Presbyterian academics in the United States for the obvious reason that the rapid and universal development ol high schools rendered the academies much less necessary than in previous ytars. The church at large has re solved to throw its support to colleges only. This movement is in direct op position to the Illinois plan which pro posed to endow academies as well as colleges. The trustees of C,. C. I. were quick to see that this action of the general as sembiy would make it Impossible to develop the institute along the lines they had planned: so they decided to confer with the board to see whether help could be secured to reorganize the inst it ill e as a college. The G. C. I. trustees estimated that in order to reorganize as a collage, it would be necessary to secure sufficient funds to erect a new building at a cost of not less than ?2..."mi and to Increase the present endowment by at least 150,000. Tins means that 875.000 would be a minimum amount neces- sarv to place a college on a sale run ning basis. It was decided to make an effort to secure financial assistance from the people of (ieneseo and vicin ity, without whieb the project will probably be abandoned. ROCK RIVER MAY BREAK TWO RECORDS THIS YEAR A few days ago word was received from Dixon that Rock river at that city had reached the lowest point known for -in years and was steadily receding, every morning showed a bank of moist black earth from which Ihe water had receded during the night. The river has been lowering steadily in Rockford, says the Rockford Star, hut it is only within a short time that it has been particularly noticeable. It will only be a matter of a a day or two before the results at Dixon will be experienced here. Concerning the con dition of the river the Star continues: "Every year at this time the river has been low caused from lack of rain and the drying up of the springs, but this year the water has been good. The manufacturers on the water pow er say that it has held up to a high mark longer than usual and it was only two or three weeks ago they be gan to realize the time for trouble in that direction had arrived. "The river this spring reached flu highest water mark known in 20 years and today it Is so low in places the steamers are unable to land at the usual places. At Love's park landing is impossible until a pier is built and this is only one of many instances along the river." Working Night and Day.
