Various People have Various Opinions or Various Things Talk of the Town. A tall fellow with a high bat and green umbrella stood in the door of the post office. Near him was a little dyspeptic, dried up speciman of humanity. They were talking about the recent yacht races which have caused so much interest to the snorting community, and the world at large. "Hy say," said the first mentioned, "by believe that Yankee craft Puritan is go ing to out run our Hinglish boat. Hy ad 'oped acalnst fate that the Qenesta would win; you know hy ham a Hinglish man nivseif. and my sympathies are hacordiugly with old Britain. But say, 'ave you you noticed the way hy ham giving it to the Ilargus every morn-, ing? Don't you think those paragraphs are cute and come from a witty brain ? hy do." "If I were to express my candid opin ion, 1 would say that they come rrom a long eared animal's brains, if he has any, and the only salvation for the morning paper is that nobodv is fooled twice in re ml ins; them?"

There arrived in this city this morning, the remains of Mrs. Julia A. Dimick, wbo expired at Perry, Iowa, at 9 o'clock Fri day morning. She was 79 years of age and might be classed among the old set tlers of Rock Island county, having lo rated here in 1837, and this was her con slant home until five years ago, when she removed to Iowa. Her husband, who died here eighteen years ago, was at one time a member of the municipal council of Rock Island. Her funeral occurred from the residence of her son. O Dimick, on Elm street, afternoon. at 3 o'clock this Tbt Striking Colliers. The miners' strike in the upper end of the county remains in the same condition as it has been for some time. No (en eral disposition has been shown among the strikers to resume work, although it is understood the Silvis men are talkin; seriously of it. The miners have all been paid up in full, and many have removed from the district entirely. The mine owners are still firm in their intention not to pay more than they have been, for the reason that they can't afford it. Tbey think it better to suspend operations than to run on terms beneficial to the workers alone. What future course will be pur1 sued remains to be seen. Tbt Cano Creek-KcKnlrj Cass.

"Can anybody tell me where tbisaboru inable babit, now in vogue among young men who profess to be the elite, of doffing the hat meeting lady acquaintances comes from? In the good old days when 'eusfliety' didn't depend upon the height of a man's shirt collar or the scar city of cloth in his pants, or the drawl in bis articulation, there was something stalely and commanding iu the manner of lifting the hat when the lady gave the signal for recognition. It was combined with a bow, which had to be well execut ed in order to make the other effectual. It was a sure index to a gentleman, for I never knew a vuluar man to acquire the art of lifting his hat gracefully. But this seems to have been obliterated by the coming generation in pants. The thing now is to grab the brim of the hat in front with the same celerity you would grab for a seat in a street car. Having clutched the right spot, you jerk the hat down as if you were trying to hide your face and a man who will take off his hat in this way ought to hide his face then you rub the hat up and downyour front about three times, very quickly, just as if you were trying to allay irritation. When the bat gets back to its place you grin like a monkey one grin is all that the custom requires. By this time the lady has passed, and if she is a sensible woman, it is her turn to grin," said an old resident to. the pilgrim. Total ,70 00 Court Callings. CIVIL CAUSES.

Through an arrest made by Marshal Eckhart under his authority as consta ble in Muscatine yesterday, there has been brought to light one of the foulest and most fiendish and cowardly crimes that has been chronicled in Rock Island county for some time. The outrage was perpetrated on the sixth day of last May, in Drury, by Frank Wray, who is noted in the lower end of the county for his brutal instincts and treachery, but the facts in the case were not fully obtained until a short time ago. The particulars of the crime are these: The scoundrel Wray managed to entice Ida B. Garvin, the ton year old daughter of Mj. and Mrs. Peter Garvin into the woods north of Drury, aud getting her out of the reach of assistance, compelled her to enter an old shauty. where he choked her until she was nearly dead, and notwithstanding the little one's ap peals for release and painful cries, accoui plished a purpose that was prompted only by the instincts of Satan. He then choked her .gain and told her that should she reveal anything that bad occurred he would kill her upon sight. The girl was then allowed to return home, and it being late, the mother's suspicions of the terrible crime her daughter had been subjected to, were not aroused un til the following morning, when she was horrified to find the little one's clothes torn and streaked with blood. The anx ious mother questioned the child, but could get nothing from her of the reason ot the condition of her clothes. People in the village were generally afraid of Wray, who lived the life of a sort of ban dit kind among them, and the child knowing this, and being influenced by hi manner of treating her when she was at his mercy, would not reveal the par'.icu lars of tbe outrage of which she was the victim. The mother was persistent, however, and Utile by little she coaxed tbe matt)' out of the child, but it was not until few days since that she succeeded i gaining the full story. Wray had in the meantime removed to Muscatine, Iowa, but none of the constables in that end ot the county had the moral courage to go over and arrest him, owing to the reputa tion he bore.' Finally irtr. Garvin wrote to Constable Eckbart, of this city, sfrid yesterday that official went to Muscatine arrested the brute, and took him to Drury, where he was tried before 'Squire Underwood, to whom he made a full con fession of his crime, and by whom he was beld in bonus ol :isj lor appearance at the next term of the circuit court. Last night Marshal Eckhart lodged his pris oner safely In the county jail. A great deal of indignation has been shown over the affair, and there is talk of einpannel ing a special grand jury in order that the case may be tried at the present term of court. To Marshal Eckhart is certainly due a great deal of praise for the dtterms iuation shown in briuging the demon lo justice. Wray is about 23 years of age, aud has lived in Drury township all his life. It said he came into this world with an ev erlasting stain upon his character, beiu born in one of the notorious disrep' utable houses which existed in the lower end of the county, twenty five years ago Andalusia Indulges iu the Luxury of a Conflagration. Andalusia, in tbe lower end of the county, was the scene of a confilagration about 2 o'clock this morning. Tbe tile factory of Burrill Snell furnished food for the flames, and the building together with the machinery aud some stock was des troyed. The loss is estimated at about $ 600, while insurance to the amount of $900 was carried in the Home Insurance company, of California, Burrall & Sten-. gel, agents for Rock Island. It is thought the fire was the work of an incendiary, but the perpetrator of the deed is un known. A M0RMSU BLAZE. Sunday Service.

This morning Mrs. Woelin pre' ferred a second charge, and Officer Brcn nan escorted Riess into the august pres ence of the 'squire a second time. This time he was made to pay his fine, but no sooner was this settled until a third charge of the same offense was entered by the same plaintiff, and Riess was held in bail of $100 to keep the peace for twelve months, and went to jail.
