Mr. JohBston is a wealthy gentleman, of culture. who had collected more fine paint ings 'than he knew what to do with, and he sold 191 at auction for . the sum named.

Our citizens know that between Sylvan Water Bridge and the Railroad Bridge is a large basin used for storing logs, in booms. These logs are rafted down from the Wisconsin and Minnesota piner ies, and are used to supply the large saw mills of Keator & Co., and of Anavralt, Denkman, & Co. The bark on the logs is geueraliy pretty well filled with vermin; as the bark falls from the logs andinks and decays, the water in that basin becomes foul and from it arises an unbearable stench. It is now known that, last sum mer, while an effort was made by men in skiffs to rearrange the booms and logs the bottom of the river was a good deal stirred up and the stench from the foul water was so great that the men had to quit work and leave the place. And that is the kiud of iuice, added to the other uices frum Moline and the sewers and ditches and drains between Moline and our pumping woiks, that our people are sked to drink. That is the stuff our water works furnishes, and which a little squad of people insist is pure, wholesome waterl end to admit the water, so there is no ob struction in winter from ice and since then we have had no trouble with sickness from water.
