Our people will remember the celebrated trio, "the Clement Bros, and Forester" who gave such an excellent concert here last winter. They closed a very successfa season at Brown's Lake on the 4th, giving a complimentary concert for Gideon's Band on the occasion of their annual con vocation. It was one of their best efforts and possessed several new and attractive features for which they received the hearty thanks of a large and appreciative audienoe. The City Bridges Council Meeting To-Night. The members of the council, in accord ance with the motion of Aid. Lundy at the meeting last night, proceeded to South Rock Island, this forenoon, in carriages, to examine the abutments, piers, and the various plans proposed for the erection of the new city bridge, in place of the one carried out by the water last spring. The council will hold a special meeting this evening, and will then decide what is best to be done. Personal. Col. J. W. Macomb has gone to St. Paul. on business, connected witn tne im provement of the Upper Mississippi. Mr. l'Ved Weyorhauser left for Wash ington yesterday to look after the interests of tho Mississippi Logging Co., of which he is president, in the suit against that company now under consideration by the attorney general. lie was accompanied by his attorney, Hon. John B. Hawley. P. IX Drake, of this paper, returned this morning, from a business trip through Northern Illinois. A Runaway Girl. Mrs. Henry Eaton, of Davenport, but formerly ot this city, reports to Marshal Hawcs that her daughter, Alice 11 Eaton, aged 10 years left her house on Sunday night in company with Edward Whitty, a young man of 19, bearing a bad reputation. Miss Eaton, her mother says-, is in very poor health, and not possessed of a strong mind. The girl was dressed in male attire, and a description of her clothes is as fol lows: striped shirt ther father's); reddish brown pants (her brother's): brown straw hat, with brown ribbon: her brother's shoes, elastics on sides, and her hair was cut short, with lock down on forehead. The runaway coupie took with them Mr. Eaton's pocket book containing $33. Relationship of Brain ana Stomach is a close one, indeed. They are connect ed by that wondrous elastic link, the sym pathetic nerve, which communicates the abnormal sensations of the organ of diges tion to that of thought. Now. if digestion is disordered, the brain, being the great focal point of the nervous system, all the nerves are is some degree affected. The main cause of nervous trouble is impaired digestion, and that is usually produced by weakness of the stomach. Hostetter's Stomach Bitters rectifies this, and over comes nervous debility by infusing in creased energy into the operation of the organs of nutrition, Through the agency oijthis beneficent tonic, not only are the nerves vitalized, but the entire organism acquires vigor and regularity Boat Racing at Brown's Lake. Now that our young men are discuss ing the question of boating, an account of a little contest on Brown's Lake.oo the last day ot the meeting of Gideon's Band, may not be devoid ot local interest There were two yachts in the race, the "Mamie Doud" and the "Kittie Knapp." The former was manned by Capt. W. B. Vance, an old-timer of the lakes, at the tiller; Lewis, the sailor, at the mainsail, and J. S. Drake, of this city, at the jib. Fred Koapp.cf Racioe,bandled the Kittie, assisted by Fred Wells, of Burlington.and Pauli, the Milwaukee artist the same Pauli who made the last map of this city, All bets were limited to ono dollar, and a large number were made. even the ladies ahook their $1.00's in each other's luce anu wuen tne race was over just one half the party wore fabort $1. In coming to the "core, the Mamie, with freo fcheets, filled about half full of water, which caused the betting to run against her. After an hour's bailing, with sails double- reefed, bbe started down the lake before a stiff breeze,closely followed by the Kittie, while tho little steamer, with about fifty ladies and gentlemen, followed as spec tators. Talk about excitement, it beat horse racing clear out of eight. As every fresh puff struck the Bails, sending the little vessels skimming through the water, with tho sailors dancing around ilike monkeys climbing to a top seat, bare headed and wet with spray; or, as the boats came about, and bore up into the wind, cutting the waves almost at right angles, and flying away in the face of the wind at twenty miles an hour, it seemed as if every one in the steamer stood ready to cry out," they are capsized 1" aod many a bet was made ou this expectation. The Kittie went ashore at the foot of (.he lake. and the brave sailor boys walked home, The Mamie stood right up to her work, and under the skillful manjeujreriag of Capt. Vance, made the circuit in 40 minutes. There is one of bis crew who doesn't want any more in his not if he knows It, when the wind blows. Dry land is good enough ana me aryer tne better. The Fourth Annual Convocation of Gideon's Band at Island Wild, Brown's Lake, Wis. Perhaps no social event attracts more attention than the annual gathering of this Mli.lmr.wn Rand t their AMohtM snm- . e ., - r ,. , mer retreat a lew mues irum jjuiuukiuu, Wis., on the Western Union R. It.', and about twenty-five miles west of Racine, Burlington, in appearance, is an old- fashioned Dutch town, situated at the iunction of the WThite and Fox rivers, and surrounded by a rich farming country, something like the rolling prairie of Iowa, and tho more level portions of New Eng land. The farmers are all well to do and have very comfortable bank accounts, and that too without "selling their wool;" probably no county in the state has as many wealthy farmers. Burlington also puts in a claim to something of style, beauty and intellectual celebrity. Among those best knotfn is Judge Dyer, or Charlie Dyer as the people of Burlington still persist in calling him. These surroundings make the location a rlesirahla nna tnr the annual meetings ot I n.., ... t. . -. , l .r a. uiaeon s uana, as quite a numucr ui iub Burlington people are members of the Band and they as well as all others con tribute very much towards the success of the organization and the pleasure of the annual convocations. It is one of those places and occasions where members of the Band, their families and friends can gather during the heated term and enjoy all the pleasures of "camping out" and all the advantages of a fashionable watering place, without the expenses of fashion or the restraints and formalities of etiquette. The lake covers between eight and nine p -j l-j i I nunureu acres ui lauu. auu is reaeneu uy a private roadway through a handsome grove of second growth timber. The island contains nearly three acres of land and is fringed to the waters edgo with a thick shade of linden wood or broad leaved whitewood, while the centre is clear; on one end is the lartre and commodious club house, ice house and out buildings, and the other is reserved for the little village of tents, and between the two is an elegant fountain surrounded by statuary, con tributed by Mr. Milo Lee of this city, and the whole is brilliantly; lighted with gas; in the centre of the Island stands a pole 90 feet high from which floats the "burgee" bearing the name "Island Wild," and keeping company with the stars and stripes on tho flag staff of the clubhouse; wooden stairs lead down to the waters edge in various places where skiffs are moored; at a wooden dock near the centre of the Island is the pleasure steamer which will carry twenty-five or thirty people, and a littlo side wheel 8teamerfor fishing, also Mr. Fred Knapps yacht "the Kittie Knapp." and the large yacht "Mamie Doud" the property of the liana, l bis last is a staunch cratt ana in a heavy sea will creep away from anything of her inches. Her first venture was made on Lake Winnebago, under com mand of Capt. W. B. Vance of Racine, when she scored third in the Oskosh Boat Club's annual regutta. She was pur chased by Mr. Doud of Racine, and pre sented to the Band two years ago. Al most the entire circuit of the lake, on the main land, is covered with handsome shade trees. This, with the Island coy ered with white tents and floating flags, and boats and minature vessels nestling in the shade at the waters edge, along side of hammocks suspended from the larger tree9, groups of women with broad straw hats and children lounging undor the grateful shade, formed almost a fairy scene, a prairie gem, cooled by the breezes from lake Michigan only twenty-five miles awry.

Got up in the morning when they pleased, went to bed when tbey got ready, drank when thirsty, ate when hungry, slept when sleepy, 'rowed, sailed, steamed over the lake, fished, bathed in the clear Katar pf the lake, chatted and sang, danced every nigbt, placed whist, euchrei or jokes on each other, and at the end of two we-ks went home regretting that all pleasant times must end, and each and eye"y one vowing to be on hand next year with a tent, fishing tackle and a bathing Buit, No 00a can deyeiop the grace of meek ness by listening to a erring Baby.

For gome time past newspaper offices have been much troubled by sneak thieves stealing the papers left on the 'door-step of subscribers, and the carriers have no doubt received a great amount of abuse for carelessness which they never deserved. V, F. Johnson, book-keeper at the Union office, has been the first one to detect the thieves or one of them and he has, very properly, resorted to the law to see if he i could stop this kind of business. Matthew Smith (or Patsy Brady, as he is generally called) a newsboy, was arrested by Police- man Feeley this morning on complaint of Mr. Johnson. On being taken before Justice Cropper, he admitted having stolen three papers last Sunday. In default of $25 bail he was sent to jail. This should be a warning to all who have been stealing papero. Gustavus Darkness, a tramp was arrested by Policeman Metsch for carrying concealed weapons. Oq being searched at the mar shal's office a revolver and bowie knife were found upon him. Jutioe Cropper fined him $3 and costs, and as he had no money, his arsenal was attached, and he was released. He had numerous recom mendations from the Young Men's Christ ian Association in his pocket. For sometime past the family of Mr. A. P. Graves has been constantly annoyed by the loud, profane and indecent language of a neighbor, Mrs. Catherine GilleD, some times addreesed to her husband and other times ti them. Last night she was on the rampage again, and finally, patience ceased to be a virtue, and, this morning, on complaint of Mr. Graves, Catherine was brought before Justice Hayden by Police map Brennas.
