C. C KNELL. EASE : COMFORT Are what the human nice lias hecn seeking since Hie dajs when the fluniin; swonl in the hands of an angel, turned a rather thinly clad lady and gentleman out of a homo timt was a perfect paradise, in to the cold, uncharitable world. To hun up a boarding; house was Mr. and Mrs. Adams' first undertaking. Tliey bought n Hock Island paper and sat down on the watch tower under a fig tree to read the stale adds, and talk over the prospects of the election. Not a house was for rent, no nicely furnished front room for gen tleman and wife; nothing even to bn had, not even a "stick of furniture (for that was before the sound of the Kiull, t body had died) to they and their children commenced looking elsewhere. The old folks were never able to find anything like the old home, sweet home, their ac cident depriveil them of. However, several years alter this event, a lot of their distant relatives went west to grow up with the country, anil they built up thriving cities all over tl'e piai ies nnd along the banks -of the great river. Now see how these descendants arc progressing. Motors run at lar$e on our streets to scare off trade and horses. Then think of KNELL'S Furniture Establishment, And smile or look at his immense stock, and smile again, beautiful (the styles arc not as they were in Adam's time) or hire somebody to kick you around the alley, because any man dare presume to make such success in a business where you do not want it. Of course wo crn't suit everybody. Don't want to. Wo give it up; it kan't be did. Some people don't like our style. Well, we arc glad they don't; it will prolong our life and make us much happier, if wo never see them; the world and Rock Island will wag without them. Why, I've actually heard people say they would not buy of Knell simply because he was such a pusher nnd boomed trade, no matter if it was dull, Tlowcvcr, they gen erally come for all that and buy from us. Why? Simply becauso they know that they can save money and get a better as sortment to select from. If I can't sell patent chairs to the inhabitants of a des ert island, I can yet sell furniture to a great mauy very pleasant customers at prices that other dealers can not tumble to. But there was Mr. Blinks, he thinks he's so smart. Of course nothing suits him that's his game from lb 0 start. And he winks at his wife so cute on the sly. As much as to say you can't fool me if you try. Over the creek everything is sold so cheap. And all that he buys is counted only blows about the bargain he got. But don't sny a word how he got gulled on the lot. Oh no. not on a lounge would he dare to lie. For that would'nt do in the sweet by and by. He's so interested at heart for the success of this town. You bet when be wants tick, and hasn't the .cash to pay down. Yes, go and C. C KNELL'S Furniture and Carpets, Rugs, ' and Draperies. Oil Cloth Oar Money. The finance committee of the board of supervisors expect to keep occupied the entire week Thanksgiving of course ex copied in getting their report ready for the boaid. Supervisor Norton, of Hump tan, put in an appearance yesterday, and Hit- entire committee are now up to their ears in figures. W Took tn Cake Toihiy the members of the Ahutjs force were made the recipients of a delicious cake, with compliments of Mrs. Ir. Matthews, of Milan, as a token of appro ciation for notices of tbe Presbyterian fes tival on the cveuing of the 19th inst. Our inner man speaks our gratitude. Contract Completed. Mayor Thomas Murdock and his son, St. Khno, have completed their contract for doing tbe masonry work on the new court house at Oskaloosa, Iowa, which has engaged their attention for nearly three months, anil Mr. St. Elmo Mur ilockreturneil homo yesterday. A Surprise. Miss Flora Iteticker, daughter of Sher iff and Mrs. Iictickor, was surprised by nineteen of her High school classmates last evening. The visitors came in cou ples and the evening was spent in danc ing and games and a social good time was had by all present. Miss Iteticker entertained her guests right royally. Labor MaBi Meeting. There will bo amass meeting of the labor organizations and all interested at Turner hall, Davenport, tomorrow even ing, under the auspices of the Cigar Makers' Union, of that city. Mr. J. N. Doxscc, of Typographical Union, No. 100. will address the meeting. Tho ICulmen matter will be thoroughly discussed. Mauy citizens who are interested in the matter will attend. County Conrt. In the county court yesterday after noon, a jury composed of W. C. Bennett, Michael Berry, Geo. Whitehead, Jacob Wait, Joseph Whiteside, Henry Sehuck, S. F. Tindall, Frank Grcnell, J. M. Cnl listr, Geo. Arclie, W. H. II. Don and Victor Johnson, found Geo. Wadsworth guilty on one of nine counts for sell ing liquor without a license to be drunk on adjacent premises. Today Wudsworlh is being tried for selling liquor without a license nfterMay 9, last. The jury is '.. Einfi ldt, K. H. Barker, A. J. Cook, E. D. Folsoin, J. V. lluntoon, Hubert Vance, Jere I'earsall, Fred Con ker, Frank Naylor, J. G. Heek, Jos. W, Long, I'.it Dixon. Effects of Impure Water. Frank Maillcr, l'h. G., has at his drug store, corner of Fourth avenue and Twen tv-third street, four bottles of water, three of which have been sent Hi in by the Dav enport board of health for analysts, as coming from the wells of the tliphtheretic districts there. The other bottle is pure hydrant water, as consumed in this city, A chemical analysis made by Mr. Nadler, shows tbat the well water from Daven port contains more or less organic matter, while that from the Hock Island hydrants possessed a considerable extent of vege table matter. This proves conclusively that impure water has a tendency to cause and aggravate diphtheria. Mr. Nadler's analysis will doubtless bo of service to the medical unil chemical world . Tho Hoina Concert.

Hair- The young ladies of Gulesburg have formed a "hugging society," for the amusement of the young men during tho long winter evenings in general, and for the particular benefit of etiurch sociables anil progressive euchre parlies in particu lar. Their prices for a fair straight up and down hug arc as follows: "For in creasing the church fund: Gnls under sixteen, twenty cents for each hug of two minutes; from sixteen to twenty years of age, fifteen cents; from twenty to twenty five, scvcnty-stivc cents; school maams, forty cents; another man's wife, one dol lar; widows, according to looks, from ten cents to two dollars; old maids, three cents a piece, or two for a nickle, and without nuy limit of time. Ministers are not charged, ditors pay in advertise ments, while reporters are not allowed to participate until everybody else gets through.'1 Here's a chanco for ltock Isl and girls to distinguish themselves. Let a society be formed at once. Police Points. . At 11 o'clock lust night Deputy Mar shal Hull, with Officers Bresnakan. But ler and Sieghartner, descended on a poker room, winch tins been nourishing of late in the vacant rooms adjoining Gilraore's packing house, at the corner of First avenue and Sixteenth street. The inmates consisted of Harry Broniek, keeper, and Orin Leonard and William Charles, who after being taken to tho station, said that their business .was such that they were obliged to leave Koek Island this morn ing, bo Magistrate Bennett was sent for and heard tbe case at midnight. All plead guilty, and the keeper was fined 4(5 and costs and the other two $S0 and costs each. All paid. A dozen elegant decks rv carks and about four hundred poker chips fell into the hafiils of the po lice. The booty is valued at something like 94(10. This morning Justice Hawes held James Parijoettc and Tiny Taylor in bonds of 350 eachfo answer to the charge of adultery at the Beit term of the circuit court. Both went u jsil in de fault. x; WICHITA. A Thriving lUnaas lit; in which Hock Island Has Nor than a Passing Interest. "Wichita is on the boom. The city is actually growing more every day. aud is on the high way to a place among the first cities of tho west. You walk out over the central portion of the city on a Sunday afternoon, and pursue the same course a week later and a visible change is noticeable. Where there were only the foundations of a structure the week be, fore, the outline of a substantial build ing is seen, while everywhere the ground is broken for other business blocks and residences." There are very few people in Hock Isl and who do not know of Alex Steel. He was for mauy years a hardware merchant here and his two sons, George anil WIN Ham, were with him in the business. Something less than a year ago, the boys got the western fever. They took the immortal Horace Greeley's advice and struck out for the wild west, and headed for the state of grasshoppers and prohi billon. They landed in Wichita, then a small, but growing city. They established themselves there, and are now enjoying the same respect and prosperity as mer chants' there that their father did here. It was the older of these two who addressed the above remarks to an Annus reporter this morning. lie is back at his old home to spend Thanksgiving week. "What is the population of your city?" asked tho scribbler. "At present wo have 15,000 people, but the next census will show a large increase in our population." "Any prohibition in your town?" "Well, I should say so. There is prohi bition everywhere in Kansas, but the joke ofitis.it don't prohibit worth a cent." "Arc the saloons running in violation to the law as they are in Iowa?" "Not a bit of it. They don't carry on an open business, but it a man wants a drink he don't have to go far to get it. Liijuor shops are held in the most uu thought of places. Old shops and sheds anil other out of the way buildings are resorted to. Once in a while a saloon keeper is arrested, lined heavily and Bent up for ninety days or such a matter. Dur ing his confinement a friend takes charge of the ranch and runs it. About the time he is discovered the original offender Iisb served bin sentence ami is out and takes the place while the other lima goes to jail. They have to license lo contend with, and they can afford to pay a heavy penalty, with the profits they make. Then too, large quantities arc sold in the drug stores. A stranger must sign a cer tilieate to get it, but a person well known has no dilUculty iu procuring tbe fiery fluid without any ceremonies." "What is the popular seutimeut on Ihe law?" "Tho general opinion seems to be thai it is a humbug and I believe if it were to come before the people again it would l defeated." "Is St. John as popular in Kansas as vor?" "I should say not. He was in our town the other day, and the papers barely men tinned the fact that ho was in the city. His star has set, and he commands no moro respect in Kansas than he does anywhere else iu the Uuited States. But the fattest oflli ein Kansas under the pres ent law is that of probate judge. He gets a fee of live cents for every certifi cate of the sale of intoxicants he exam ines. He can make $20 a day as easily as one. The druggists make a good deal out of it also." "Has the boomer excitement sub sided?" 'Not altogether. Wihchita is to some extent the home of the invaders, and they seem determined as ever. While the pres ent administration's course on this subject is upheld by the law abiding class of pcos plo, the boomers are down on it. They bolted Arthur for his conduct toward them, and they thought Cleveland would act different." How are crops about Wichita?" "Splendid; the yield has been immense and the city is reaping the benefit. 0ur town is so located as to eaten the farmers' trade from all the surrounding country, and having four railroads, we feel that there is every reason for a continuance of growth and prosperity." "How is the city fixed for pleasure re sorts?" "We have several nice parks for sums mer pleasure and recreation, and in the winter we have the roller rinks and a handsome theatre. Such attractions as Kecne, Raymond and the like arc booked, and the house is always packed." At this moment the reporter's attention was called to a representative of a morn ing paper pursuing a dog with a tin can lied to its tail, and he started out to see the fun, thus bringing the interesting convers sation to an abrupt close. Queer Crafts East of tbe ferry dock about one o'clock this afternorn were anchored two small boats, 25 feet hull, 'and covered with white canvass. They contained a party of four men, A. H. Shipman, John Hu bert, John Carey and Harry Rogers who hail from Rochester, N. Y., and are on their way to southern waters on a pleaf ure expedition. They expect to be absent a year. 1 heir miniature crafts are side wheelers, and are propelled by small en gines. Instead or coal, kerosene oil ifl used to procure steam, and consequcntly no smoke or dust annoys the occupants. Mr. Shipman said they could make a mile at the average speed of seven min utes on still water, and ecsily cover nine miles an hour going down stream. A flag hung at the mast bead of each boat with the inscription "Shipman" and "Mamie Lown." The start was made from Por tage, Wis., and a much larger boat was built for tbe trip, but on account of low water in tbe Wisconsin river, they were unable to reach the Mississippi, and the smaller crafts were constructed . The men stopped here to get some provisions, and when the boats steamed off down stream quite an admiring crowd gazed after them. i POINTS FOK THE CAM A I,, Maj. W. II. II. Ilenyuard Una Com pleted lite Surreys and is Mow Milking np His Keport. When Maj. W. II. H. Benyuanl, who has in charge the Hennepin canal surveys, was in Rock Island last week, he informed an Abol's reporter that inasmuch as he had not completed tbe work, he could give to the public nothing new on the subject. His work is now fiuished so far as the surveys are concerned, and he is engaged in making up his report to con gress. The Chicago Tribune has gained some interesting information from the Major, and tbat official is reported to have said: The part-cular advantage to be gained from this deviation is the avoidance of numerous small rivers and creeks which empty into Green river from the south ward, and which would be very trouble some obstacles and very expensive ones to get rid of. The report will, therefore, show a line of survey starting from St. Peter's Marsh, a natural basin, about a mile north of Annawan, and thirty miles west of Hcnnepiu and proceeding in a nor'.hwosterly direction to Penny Creek, from which it runs southwest lo the for mer junction at Colona, taking in a part of the Rock river for the route, aud thus avoiding tho expensive excavation which would be necessary by the line south of Green river. This line presents fewer difficulties as an en gineering project, aud tho expenses of conslrueting thu canal, if it sliouhl be adopted, will be considerably lessened from the estimates giveu by the line sctiib of the Green river, and is therefore the most advantageous of the two. It could be adopted for portions of either Hie Hock Island or Walcrtown line previously surveyed, if this should lie thought ex pedient. The survey of this season was pro jected upon the basis of the const ruction of a caual to be seventy-livo miles in length from a point at or near Hennepin, on the Illinois river, lo the Hock river at Colona. This would connect the Missis sippi river via the Hock river, with the Illinois and Michigan caual. It provides for a body of water of a general dcu,th of seven feet, and it proposes a uniform width of eighty feet for tho canal, thus furnishing a water route sufficient in ex tent and depth to float fleets of the largest barges between the Mississippi and lake Michigan. That portion of the lino from the Illi nois river to the Feeder Junction, a dis tance of twenty-five miles, is common to all the proposed lines. At this point the Meredosia line diverges to the northward, tiie other lines continuing nearly paratlvJ to the fifty .seventh mile from the Illinois river near Colona, where the Hock Island lines diverge via Ureeu and ltock rivers to their termination, while the Walcrtown route is continued directly west to the Mississippi. The feeder from the Hock river, which is Hie source of supply of water to the proposed caual, probably be cause that stream can be depended upon at all stages to furnish u sufficient and re liable supply of water, is thirty-live miles in length, and has, by the estimates, n fall of thirty-six inches from Dixon to the main line of the canal. The esliuiut ed cost of the Hock Island route, inohul. ing feeder, is about 0.;t0OAI0O. Bright for Bock Island. This morning's Chicago Time contains the following report of yesterday's pro ceedings cf the Soldiers' Home oouiuiis.. sion: Tho Soldiers' Home commission met again yesterday. All the members were present, and during the morning and afternoon they solemuly went through the farce of taking several ballots for the choice of a location, without any definite result. From all that can be learned of the actions of this most secretive body, there seems to be no more prospect of a choice than when the commission met for the first time. The nuuibor Tif delegates from the various cities and towns who are desirous of securing the doubtful honor of a selection were decidedly limited, and it would appear that the interest ot II claimants is on the deercaso. It was reported that several members of the commission were disposed lo fa vor Hock Island, for the reason that, the arsenal was located there, and that the Iowa soldiers' home was silualcd at Dav enport, directly across the river. It was claimed that this selection would be the most tlcBirahlc for the old soldiers, who would thus he enabled to fraternize with aimv officers and also with the Iowa vet erans. The report was denied by several commissioners, but the Hock Islanders appeared to be very confident of victory. It was suggested by one member of the commission that it was not unlikely that a locality hitherto overlooked might final ly be selected as a compromise, out in the meantime tho members of the commission continue to meet regularly, vote formally, look wise, and accomplish nothing. An other meeting will be held at 10 o'clock this morning. "Conning by Prescription." There has been so much praise of Ihe laughable farce given under the auspices of the German English School society at Turner hall lust Sunday evening, that an effort will be made for a repetition of the entertainment.
