Forgot tae Spoons arri Dishei.
An amusing incident occurred in con
nection ith the Baptist ex;ursioa dow n
the river ou the steamer Rebstock the
other day. Any amount ct ice crcar hii
been ordtred, for it was to be a moon
light ice cream picnic as much as any
thing else, but when the hour came for
dishing out the frigid substance, the mem
bers of the party found to their dismay
that they had neglected to bring spoonE
and dishee.
"Oh, well, we'll borrow some from the
boat," spoke up a cool headed feminiae
representative of the party, and off she
went in search of the captain.
Ia the meantime the whole party had
gathered aroucd the cooler, warm from
dancing on the barge, and with longing
looks and melting mouths prayed for
the return of the committee of one
who had gone to the captain for the
dishes and spoons, boon she returned.
"This is all I could get," said she,
holding out several broken dishes and a
few whole ones not half enough to go
around and half a dozen pewter spoons,
"so we'll have to wave all ceremony and
either' eat with our fingers, which were
made before spoons, or wail our turn for
the spoons."
Tne dishes and spoons were distributed
as far as they would go; the love sick cou
ples found that half a dish and one spoon
was enough for them; the elder members
of the party awaited their turns at the
dishes ana spoons, and the misfortune of
being without spoons and dishes with
the tempting delicacy right before
their eyes on a hot eight in July was not
felt to much after all. The members of
the party took a solemn vow never to re
eil the joke which they mutually
shared, but it leaked out.

ties for Securing the In

the soldiers' borne was busy all day Sat
urday aad today in the matter of secur
ing a favorable site for the location of the
soldiers' and sailors' home, to present to
the commission on its visit to Rock Isl
and. A number of propositions have been
submitted, among them 170 acres on
Rock river neu the Moline bridge be
longing to Thomas Corns, and valued at
f 7,x; eighty acres one miie east of the
wa'.ch tower fronting oa Rxk river,
owned jointly by Henry Schroeder,
Mrs. Beckmin, and Mrs. G.
M. Lukea. v.iued at $5,3'X.
W. L. Coyne offers seventy five acies
immediately east of the watch tower for
$7,W0. Messrs. J. F. Robinson and Ben
liar per make a proposition of eibtytwo
acres oa VaadrutTs island for f 8.000.
And the old Lloyd f.rni. ninety-six acres,
is o2ered for $7,000.
The proposition most favorably looked
upon, and one probably that is the most
advantageous in every way is a square of
eighty acres located south of Chippian
nock cemetery bordering on the line of
the Rock Island & Milan Street Railway
company. The iand has gentle slopes on
all sides, the ton of the b!ua is strikingly
well adapted to the buildings, command
ing an excellent view of both the Missis
sippi and Rock rivers. Tns tract con
tains several springs, shade trees and
other natural facilities which will doubt
less impress the commission upon its
visit here. The Und is owned by the
heirs of the late Gen. T. J. Rdana and
by Bailey Diveu port. It can be bought
for $100 aa acre.
While the owners of this excellent tract
of land have offered it as low as could
reisonabiy be expected $130 per acre
le;S than the market value it
is not to oe expected that the commission

The "O.V Sew Approach to Roek Isl
and Important Improvement
Other Item of Interest
Along the Rait.
One of the results of the recent visit of
the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy offi
cials to this city and to Col. Flagler, on
the government island, has been shown
in the last two days. The "Q " has, ever
since the construction of its trestle work
arouad the Chicag o R ick Island & Pa
cific round bouse six years ago, been dis
pleased with it, au 1 there has beea a de
sire to biuid a new oue. the only n-q-aisite
being a pera.it from the g jvernaient to
extend further m.t il'.o the river. It
seems now that t'a roi l has received
that permission, aad Sii irdiy morning
W. L. Breckenridge, civii eogiueer of this
division of the road, witu a t"ris of as
sistants, commenced the survey of the
new road bed. It commences just as the
track eaters the original trestle work,
and insteii of following the carve as the
present one does, exteads ia a straight
line to the Chi: ig , Rock Isiaid & Pa
cific round house, where it j ins the oth
er track, which it follows for a
short distance and then it makes another
direct iiae to the foot of Ribbing avenue.
The new work will of course form an
embankment out iuto the water, the con
tract for the construction of which has
beea iet to E. P. R-ytolds. The water
at present is four to five feet deep there,
f he embankment whi. h is to be filled in
solidly will be the s ime length as the
present tiestie wors igiueea feet ou
the average. The extension will be three
thousand feet long. Tae present ap
proach to this city over tne trestle work
has so many curves that it mik?s ti'ht
and hard pulling especially with long
trains, and this is the reason cf the new
embankment. The present trestle work,
when the new one is completed, will be
used for storage of cars, side track, etc.
The surveying wiil he completed by to
night tid Mr. Reynolds will commence
his work tomorrow morninj. Tue con
struction will be pushed as fast as possi-
ble and will be done about tue last of !

The Way the Central Union Telephone
Company Does BusinessA Game
to Hold Subscribers.
3 A well known citizen and merchant,
and one who has patronized the telephone
exchange since it was started, informs
the Arocs that he believes the company
is playing a double game with the citi
zens of Rock Island telling them one
thing, while intending at the same time
to do just the opposite. To a reporter
this morning he said: "When the col
lector called oa me the first of this
month, I told him that unless the number
arrangement was recinded, he might take
my instrument out; that I would not be
bothered with the nuisance. The young
man then informed me that I need not
bother with the list any longer: to call
what I wanted and it wonld be given me
without the number. Since that day I
have never called by number, aad have
not had the least difficulty ia getting
communication."
"Now," said the merchant, "this suits
me well enough, but I don't like the in
consistency of the thing. I don't like the
partiality shown if I am the one favored.
Aad I believe this corparatioa will act the
hypocrite aad do as it pleases with this
city until there is a revolt, aa active re-
moustrtnee by the patrons of the concern
and au indication that we mean business.'
The above case is only one of many
where the collector whether authorized
or not, has sought to mislead the patrons
of the telephone system. Many lawyers
were told that the number system
had beea abolished so far as Rock Island
is concerned at least, and hardly had the
company got the money into its pockets,
when a new citalogue comes forth, at the
top of which is "call by numbers only."
Ia a conversation with an Arqcs repor
ter Saturday night. Manager Griffith said,
the number system would never bo abol
ished. Tliecompauy might make certain
exceptions to tne rule, but the only way
to be sure of setting direct communica
tion was to call by number. Sj it will
be seen tht the company proposes to
pay no attention to the appeals of R )ck
Is'atid Sub-crioers, unless it be to mis
represent its intentions long eaoujh to
ma'ie the collections. Next month it is
hopi-d tne dissatisfied patrons cf the con
cern iu Rock Island will have learstd by
experience that action is worth more than
".ir--.iT, especially in the face of mom fo!y.

Benjamin Whitsill, of Preemption. 111.,
was at market with one car of hog's and
