AN OLD HOME WEEK
Idea Advanced That Rock

ted that the painter had been dis
charged unjustly, and had agreed to
reinstate him, but refused to give him
back pay for his lost time. It was thi.
lefusal that resulted in the local

AS DONE BY EASTERN CITIES
Give Former Residents Chance to Sci
Growth of the City as Well
as Old Friends.
F. O. VanGaldor, editor of the Moi
trn Woodman, makes the suggestion
that Rock Island have a home cumin.;
vtek such as is observed by many
other cities, particularly in the e:r;:.
It is estimated that there are ".nun
former residents who would be liko'v
to attend such a gathering: and 'h-
benefits would be mutual.
It is customary to issue invitation
to all former resident s. arranging a
series of ente-tainntetiis at the oil
familiar places for their beindi!. lie
sides giving a chance for plcasan: re
unions it would give a;i opportunity
for those who have been awav from out,
Rock Island for years to note the ill
provemeiits that have been made :in 1
thus would advertise the city effec
tively. Plan for cnr.
The idea, if it meets witn favor,
should be taken up in time so h-t
those invited can take the old home
week into consideration in planning
their next summer's vacations.

Old Levee Sinks and Bar Forms Near
Landing Colonel Durham
Colonel C. W. Durham of the loo il
office of the United States engince's
was at Andalusia yesterday, looking
over the situation there with a view to
making improvements in the harbo.-.
The old levee, which was built there
some L'u years ago has sunk and wash
ed away and a bar has formed
directly in front of the lan. ling. It i.-:
rnderstood that the levee will be re
built and the bar dredged out. Tin;
Andalusia landing is the only one on
the Illinois side between Rock Island
and Ne w Iioston. Its present con li
tion makes it difficult for the largo
river boats to make a landing there.

work at the mouth of Rock river, the
crew having completed the work at
Fulton, whre the harbor was dredged
