He will doubtless prove valuable acquisition to Rock Island's ef 5cient corps. Obituary TLast evening, at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. H. J. Miliar, on the Mo1 tine 'bluffs, occurred the death of Mrs. Elisabeth Stamberger, mother of Super arioor John Aster, of this city. The cause -f death was general breaking down of the rsjsteui. occasioned by old age. She was Hiorn ic 'Germany, January 24, 1801, and liiaBce w8 over eightytour years old . She was twice married, both times iu Germany :nd both her husbands died there. She was the mother of ten children, five of whom .survive her: Mrs. R. Dower and Mrs Betz, in Rock Island; Mrs. Millar, in Mo liae; Mrs. Barbara Pfiele, in Iowa, and John Aster in this city. Mrs. Stamberger scute to this country thirty-four years ago and 4o ilock Island county three years since. She was thejrue type of a noble woman, kind hearted and good. The re .main will be brought to this city this evening, and the funeral will be held near sSpring EM, Henry county, tomorrow af ternoon. rrairie chickens iu Iowa are more plentiful this season than for miiry lears SE.NSATIO.N AD SCAMUL. L. D. Dimitk Flees From the Citj With a Disreputable Character Aa I'jfly Affair if it be Trne. If reports which are afloat in the city today he true, Rock Island is about to give the public one of the most scan dalous affairs that has occurred in this county for many a day. The rumors which the Argus has attempted to trace to a reliable source, are that last evening the well known and heretofore highly respected young liveryman, L. D. Dimick, left tha city suddenly under circumstances ot the most sensational character. At about 7:30 o'clock he ordered his hostler to hitch up two carriiges, took a driver, and mounting the driver's seat of one of the vehicles himself, drove off, leaving the impression that he had gone out into the country to attend a funeral. At 8 clock Mr. Dimick was seen at the postoffice with the two rigs, and that was the last seen of him Today it comes to light that youn Dimick has decamped, that he has Bed in the direction of MiUn, w here be was met by Maud Terry, one of the most disrep table characters that has ever been nown in this city. She was formerly of Davenport, but when driven out of that city, came over to Rock Island, and it is said Mr. Dimick was fascinated with her, and that although a married man, he for- ot and degraded himself so far as to be seen in public in company with her. His plot, it is understood, was well planned. A city hack driver informed an Argus re porter this morning that two weeks ago, Dimick laid his plans before him, told him he was going to elope with this woman, and take with him rigs enough to go into the hack business in the west. He in vited the hackman to accompany him. but the latter refused, When Dimick left the bira on Third avenue last evening, he had with him one black team worth $500, another span of horses, a bay and a brown, valued at $350, and a large bay horse worth $ 173, a laudau recently purchased at a cost of $1,000, and a clarence hack priced at $500. It is understood that he hitched the single horse to an express wagon which was used in carrying the woman's baggage from Milan to Muscatine, where is understood the vehicles and horses were to be shipped Kansas City, tuence west to some remote district where he will settle down with the woman and go back into the business. The man who accompa nied him is not well known in the city; he went by the name of "Lou." but his last name has not been learned. As far as can be ascertained, Dimick had about $400 in money when he left. The woman who figures conspicuously in the affair is small in statue, a blonde, and dressed in a manner that would at" tract attention. Dimick was married a year and a halt ago, and tne young couple apparently j lived happily together. TUe father, O. J. Dimick, did all in his power to give his son a good start in life, setting him up in the livery business, and advancing him money wheuever he was in need. The young man's wife has been very ill for several weeks, and was reported at the point of death two weeks ago. She is still quite ill, but in a fair way to recov ery. It would seem that the shock occa sioned by her husband's conduct would drive her distracted. Mr. O. J. Dimick, who is in Chicaso, has been telegraphed and will arrive home tonight. He and his family will have widespreal sympathy in their afflic tion. A Luciy Smpmant. Mr. II. B. Stoddard, EJirington's well known cilizen, accomplished quite a feat in the matter of shipping hogs this week. For mtiny years Stoddard has been known f,ir and wide us a cattle shipper and grain dealer, but of lite he has rested on his 0:irs, as it were, an i now expects to re ceive tae appointment of postmaster at his burg. Idleness does not rest well on the shoulders of Stoddard, however, and this week he struck out in the country in search of hogs to ship to Chicago. He succeeded in getting 172 fine porkers, averaging over three hundred pounds each. One hundred and twenty-four of the number he purchased from J. M. Spickler, their weight being 39.370. But the tro 'ble was to get Ihem to Chicago in good order in such hot weath er. A more timid soul than Stoddard would never undertake the job. The hogs were loaded in three cars on last Wednesday, when the thermome ter had reached the one hundredth notch, and started on their way. At every op portunity Stoddard would give his stock a shower bath, and it took more water to keep them alive than it did to feed the engine which pulled the train. Strange as it may seem, not a bog was crippled or killed, and Stoddard returned home with a voluptous pocket book, well pleased with himself and the world generally. We publish the foregoing not only as an item of news, but to show the spartan like spirit of Stoddard. If he is wise he will send a copy of this paper to the post master general, and we predict that he will be commissioned postmaster at Edg ington immediately. Grand Excursion To Muscatine and return Sunday, August 2. 1885. The fast, favorite steamer, Jo sephine, B A. Conger, master, Sim Woods, clerk, will leave Rock Island at 9:30 a. m.

Walks and Tilk About the City Va rious Opinions of Various Tilings. Town Topics. "I do hope." said a war worn veteran to the pilgrim, "that there will be nothing to mar the imposing observances in Rock Island one week from today, of General Grant's funeral. Why, I would walk from here to New York, if I could leave my work to get a glimpse of the old commander before he is put away from earthly view forever. I was with the general in all his important battles, and never was a com mander more cousiderate of his men than he." "I loved that mm," said the old s.V.Jier, as the tear3 rolled down his wrinkled f ice, and it makes me crv when I think that be is dead, that he is gone from us for ever. Why, there was a something ab ut him that gave assurance to victory on the battle field, and we always felt safe wUen we could see him. With him we were everything, without him. nothing. H was a whole army in himself and his men would haye gone to the end of the world for him. I hope everybody in town, old and young, will get out and march in the procession of mourning next Saturday, as they did on Garfield day four years ago." "Yes; the soldiers' home commission meets at Springfield nest week," said a member of the legislature in answer to a question, "aad Rock Island's claims have been well presented. Ibeheve the com mission will be particularly impressed with that petition and the commissioners will come here favorably inclined to wards our city . There only remains to present the sites in the proper light We'll know something more definite by next week at this time." "What are the most popular drinks in this weather," said the pilgrim to a Sec ond avenue bar keeper. "Those with plenty of cricked ice in them." was the reply. "Just now punches are in the lead claret punches, whisky punches and the like. Lemonades are also very popular, particularly seltzer lemonade. Mint julep is frequently called for." "Straight golds are not much in de mand?" "Not much call for them, except a lit tle brandy and Jamaica ginger for sum mer complaint. That is a necessity, you know." "Is it true that seltzer bottle suni'. times explode?'' Yes, it is. Had one go ou with me the other nizht. No one was hurt and no damage done. A large siphon hottl will sometimes blow up if struck ajainst the bar, and smash things generally." "But any imported bottled goods are liable to explode. I would never open a bottle of importedjginger ale unless I had a towel around it." aay," remarked a perspiring copper, 'we policemeu have a hard time of it sometimes. Here, when it s hot enough to melt the ears off a porcelain dog, we are compelled to swelter under the hel mets heavy enough to weigh us down aud as close as cast iron pots. They are only fit for winter weatner. We ought to have a lisht, airy helmet, like they use in New York." "13 that your only trouble?" "No." I was just thinking of payday, and wishing it was more frequent. Then, when it does come, you can't g'-t aw:ty from the clerk's office without bein levied on " "Gutss you don't give away all you tet. You coppers are not much given to such thinas." A:u t we, tiiougu? Well, 1 guess some of us contribute as much in prop urion us some of the rich men. But you bet I keep enough for my own use." "What did you ayi" "E say." The conversation was betscn the pil grim, who was undting over a proof sheet, and a member of a local dramatic society who entered the office and addressed a question to the writer. "What do you mean?" said the pilgrim, as a long, lean lank specimen of human ity sauntered around into view. "Mean? I mean that I want one of you literary fellers to write me an essay on General Grant. If you'll promise not to tell, I'll let you inter the hull situation. I am president of our literary society, and at the last meetin I was voted to read an essay on General Grant at the next meetin, which is tonight, and I don't feel altogether equal to the emergency; I thought you might kinder help me out; you write it and I'll read it you know." "The literary editor has gone to a watering place to spend the summer." "Guess I see the editor in chief then," said the literary club man, as he made for the sanctum. . "If you'll write me an essay today," he said, addressing the head of the editorial department, "111 write yer three columns next week when I set more time." But alas! at that moment the fighting editor appeared, and some one will have to prepare an eulogy on the president of the local literary society for the next meeting. "Ah, do you know," said the pilgrim's pet dude, "that 'a this weatha is a 'bom nible, deucedly so. Had to give up work the last few days, because my choker col lar kept wilting, and it wouldn't do to wear a low one, you know. Say, dear boy, do you know that I shall have to go down east to a watering place, if a' this weatha continues? I can't appear upon the street without high collar, and this deuced weatha melts them so; a' give me a cigarette, will you. dear boy?" "Hi there!" exclaimed a country pa senger for Coal ailev to a news bov. "come here." "What do you want?" "Bring me one o' them ere Pa and Ma Gazette we read so much about." Biver Ripleu. The elegant Mary Morton is expected down at daylight tomorrow morning. The St. Paul passed north at noon to day with a good trip. The Sidney came up at 4 o'clock this afternoon. It is understood the St. Louis aud St. Paul line will construct two new side wheel steamers this fall, to be modeled after the St. Paul. The Josephine makes an excursion trip to Muscatine tomorrow, leaviug here at 9:30 in the morning and returning at 9 in the evening. The White E.isle is on the docks at St. Louis, being rebuilt and will be out in two weeks. She will he furnished with a small cabin an 1 will carry freight exclu sively. When the river U very low she will be used for transferiug between St. Paul and LuCrosse. On the last trip down of the steamer Sidney, of the Diamond Jo line, the Clin ton (Iowa) Xew publishes an account of an alleged brutal clubbing aflair; the vic tim was said to be a deck band and the mate the aggressor. Capt. James Best, of the Sidney, has written the Xevcs a letter ia which he claims that paper did him an injustice inpub'ishmg the article. The captain says the mate struck the man but twice and then with a small stick He also says he commanded the officer to cease striking the man, which order was immediately complied with; also, that the mate is a very small man, weighing not more than one hundred and twenty pounds. The captain suggested that if the matter be investigated, it would be proven that this version of the affair is correct, and that the paper was misin formed. "Some pains were taken yes terday by the reporter," 9(.ys the yeics, "to vuterview witnesses of thj allair, and enough was learned to convince the Aetr that it erred in but one thing. That was in regard to the size of the mate, he be ing a sm.ill mau. Further than this we have nothing to take back, believing we stated the truth in the original account of the aflair." Wind ana Water. A com'uiuation nf the hurricane elcnitnt aud driving rain visited this city at noon today. For fuliy hulf au hour the rain fell in torrents from all corners of the earth ul once . The wind blew f r.m ail directions, wild flashes of lightttin played about the heavens accompanied by loud and continuous thunder.

In calling attention to the fact that we have refitted and redecorated our Studio, making it not only the most complete but decidedly the handsom est in this vicinity. We also wish to call attention to our display of fine Photographic work, all recently produced and containing many novel aad t pleasing positions and effects of light and shadow, varying in size from a miniature up to 16x20 inches. We have been assured by old and compe tent critics that it is by far the finest display ever made in this city. Our artistic success is largely due to the fact that we make a greater effort to excel than to undersell, and we bring to our aid such experience as can be gathered from 17 years of continuous service (having begun our Photo graphic career as a mere boy in 1867, since which time we have not lost six months either by sickness or vacation) our long experience enables us to appreciate the importance of scenic effects in Photo art, hence our operat ing room is fitted with a mass of accessories, consisting of stone wall, bal ustrades, stone and rustic bridges and fences, boat, rock3. pond containing water lillies, stairways, screens, and a variety of back-grounds, posing chairs, table statues, vases, or what the Chicago Photo-Bureau says, is un equalled in any gallery in this vicinity, but We plainly say (and it is s matter easily demonstrated) that no gallery in this contains one-half of the amount of our instruments; we don't boast that they were bought in a rem nant sale and used by predecessors for 25 years. Ox the contrary, our instruments are of the latest improved makes, contaniing among others the VoigtlaenderEnryscope and Dallmeyer Instantaneous Lenses. These two Celebrated Lenses cannot be found in ani Gallery in this city bci ours. A pleased patron is the best advertisement and we strive to secure the advertisement by the excellence of our work. In order to better secure satisfactory results, every patron is given a show of three or four nega tives, different positions, and all of these proofs are shown, and should any improvements suggest themselves, resittiugs will gladly be made free of charge.
