END AID FOR BLIND
Rock Island County Declines Longer
to Carry Out the Prorisions of
a Law Recently Enacted.
HELP NOT WHERE NEEDED
But Two Quarterly Payments Are Made
Here Macon County Taken
to Too Kindly.
Rock Island county, after an expe
perience of six months, has given a
wide berth to the new state law pro
viding aid for the needy blind. Under
the law a blind person, whose income
does not exceed $250 per year, is en
titled to $150 per year from the county
in which he has been a resident for
Ten persons in the county had been
receiving aid through the board of su
pervisors, and there were many others,
it was learned, who were preparing to
file their petitions. The injustice of
the law is seen, it is pointed out by a
member of the board, when it is stated
that not one of the 10 who were draw
ing quarterly payments from the
county at the rate of $15o a year were
paupers, all being so circumstanced
that they were well cared for by their
'I'lirentf to Sue flip County.
There have "been suits threatened
against the county for refusal to make
further payments under the blind law.
but this step was not taken until legal
advice had been obtained. It is claim
ed the law contradicts itself, one clause
making it optional and another man
datory on the county to afford the aid
prescribed. Rock Island has simply
followed the lead of many other coun
ties in the state in abolishing aid for

J. A. Drown, of nine Mound, a mem
ber of the board of supervisors of Ma
con county, is in the city today. Me
is on a tour of inspection to ascertain
the efficiency of the rock pile as an
adjunct of the county jail. Mr. Drown
ays they have found down in Macon
county that their jail is altogether too
nviting to the hobo, as there bo has
a clean bed in sleep in. a sanitary
building, and solid food. The result is
hat the hobo never passes by that
rounly without paying a call. The jail
is tilled nearly the year round. The
supervisors there lutve arrived at the
conclusion that the only remedy is to
put the boarders to work, and he lias
been favorably impressed with the
rock pile in what he has learned of it.
I.ot-nl Pile lv no v it to I'r!i-nilly.
For several years the professional
hobo has had little use for Rock Island
m account of his fear of a session on
ihe rock pile. It has materially reduc
d the number of hobo boarders. The
rock is sold to the street railway com
pany and contractors. The county does
not make any money off the material,
as it pays nearly as much for it in the
rough as is received for it when it is

Something for the Boys.
It seems a new malady is going
the rounds, called by physicians to
whose notice cases of it have come the
"swimming fever." Roys who stay in
the river lx long in hot weather are
the sufferers with the new malady,
which is said to prove serious in
some instances. The- physicians say
that parents should be careful to warn
their children against staying in the
water too long. The results of the
fever may be even more serious than
those of a bad cramp; but even if
sickness does not result, the practice
produces enervation, which leaves th'.
reckless bather in a favorable physical
condition to invite an .tttack from
