BASE ' COMFORT Are. what the human rncc has been seeking since the days when the flaming sword in tho lunula of an angel, tinned a rather thinly clad lady and gentleman out of a home that was n perfect paradise, in to the I'ohl. uncharitable world. To hunt up a hoarding house was Mr. and Mrs Adams' first undertaking. Tliey bought n Rock Island paper and sat down on the watch tower under a fig tree to rend the stide 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 be had not even a stick of furniture (for that was before the sound of the Knell, no body had died) to thry and their children coiiiiiii ni'cd looking elsewhere. The old folks were never able to find anylhiiif like the old home, sweet home, Iheir ac cident deprived them of. However, several years alter this event a lot of I heir distant relatives went west to grow up wilh the country, and they built up thriving cities all over li e pi air ies and along the hanks of the gnat river. Now see how these descendants are progressing. Motors run at large on our streets to .scare oil trade and horses. Then think of KIN HULL'S Furniture Establishment, And smile or look at his immense stock. nnd smile again, beautiful (the styles are not as they were in Adam's time) or hire somebody to kick you around the alley, because uny man ilaro presume to make such success in a business where you do not want it. Of course wo cen'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 are glad they don't; it will prolong our life and make us much happier, if we never see them; the world nnd liock 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 and boomed trade, no matter if it was dull. However, they gen ernlly coino for all that and buy from us Why? Simply because they know that they can save money and get a better sort incut to select from. If I can't sell patent chairs to the inhabitants of a dcS' ert island, I can yet sell furniture to a great many very pleasant customers at prices that other dealers can not tumble to. But there was Mr. Blinks.bc thinks he's so smart. Of course nothing suits him that's his game from the start. And he winks at his wife so cute on the sly. Ai much as to say you can't fool mo if you try. Over the crcLk everything is sold so cheap. And all that he buys is counted up in a heap. When he gets back he only blows about the bargain he got. But don't say 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 lick, and hasn't the cash to pay down. Yes, go and C. C KNELL'S i Furniture and Carpets, Rugs, Oil Cloth and Draperies. Hymeneal- At the residence of the bride's parents. Mr. and Mrs. 11'b. Nichols, on Fourth avenue,. Wednesday evening, Miss Mary 10. Nichols was united In marriage to Frank L. Bowen, by Hev. J. H. Wright, r.f the Christian chapel. The bappy couple received the congratulations and best wishes of many admiring friends. , Boots ana Shoes.

Store at No. 16211 Second avenue. under Hock Island house. a A Depot Burned - Conductor Tom Fuller, of the night express on the C, M. & St. P. road reports that about II) o'clock last night the com pany's freight and passenger depot at Western Union Junction, Wis., was burned to tho ground. The cause Is un known nnd when the fire was discovered it had gained such headway as to bo be yond conlrol, and the efforts to check the flames' fury proved futile. Tho depot was a comparatively new one, built only two years ago, and was one of the most convenient of the small depots on the road. It was frame, one story high, and was put up at a cost of $.,O0O. AN though the destruction is complete, like all the property of tho great road, it was well insured. The depot stood on a "Y" of tho road, it being the junction of the Cuicago and Kacinc and Southwestern divisions. Wes tern Union Junction is in Wisconsin, eight miles this side, of Kacinc.

Prisoners discharged . Track Talk. General Agent Mack, of tho C B. & Q,, is oil on a western trip. The fast through westward freights on thcC, 11. I. & P., go southwest from Davenport via the Washington branch to Kuoxvillc junction and thence to the main lino at Dcs Moines over the Keokuk & l)es Moines division, instead of using the main lines as heretofore. Tho Hock Island & Peoria road now claims the best and quickest route from Pock Island to Springfield. Their morn itig train' makes close connections at Peoria, with tho I. B & W. This places them in direct competition with the C, B. & Q. roaJ. Agent Holmes, of the C, M. & St. P. road, has received blank certificates to be filled out by clergymen desiring half fare permits. The applicant must certify that bo is a clergyman of n certain church and that in the event of his resigning his charge at any time, to return tho permit to headquarters. Upon December 1, the Butliugton road will reduce its passenger fare from Chi cago to points west 3 or 5 cents, for tho reason that all tickets were based upon tho figures formed at the old Chicago de pot on tho lake front, but tho new union depot bciug a mile towards tho west from the old depot, a reduction in the faro is made for the rule. Agent Holmes, of the C, M. & St. P., has been instructed in regard to the pre payment of charges on property perisha ble or of doubtful value offered for ship ment. Between November 1 and March 1 prepayment of charges is required on carloads of apples and potatoes ordered. The instructions are issued on account of inconveniences to shippers which some times happen from detention of property at junction points. The C, H. I. it P., in purchasing new locomotives, seem to be laboring under a misapprehension of the existing facts, for the roads always builds and never buys. In 1809 the road purchased the silver en gine, "America," on exhibition in Paris, and took it as a model for all locomotives built in their Knglewood (III.) shops. This model has been gieatly improved by Master Mechanic Twoinley. Last spring twelve new engines were built of a very superior kind. They are mammoth and can pick up a train of ten or fifteen filled coaches as easily as they carry their own tender. Dubuque Times: E. P. Reynolds & Co., the contractors, paid out over 1 48, (XXI yesterday at their office on the levee. The day previous the sum of $110,000 was paid out for labor, material, etc., for the cast shore road. A car load of Ital ians for the east road arrived over the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul road Friday evening. Another car load of Swedes arrived at Clayton Friday and went over to Glen naven to work on the C, B. Jt N. road. About 50 miles of the track has been completed between Oregon and Prairie du Chicn. Nearly 700 marriage licenses were is sued in Philadelphia during October. THE SOLDI EKS' HOME. The Commission Adjourns Until Next Monday Evening .No Reason for Discouragement. The soldiers' home commission, after balloting all day wilhout a choice, ad, journed at 7:30 Wednesday evening until 7 o'clock next Monday evening, when they meet again at Springfield. The majority of the commissioners were favor of continuing the session until some definite action was taken but Mr. Hall who in fact would rather have remained himself had other mat ters to attend In which demanded his attention. The local committee, Hon. II. C. Cleaveland, Sheriff J. M. Hcticker, exsMayor Henry Carse. Messrs. Mor ris Rosenfield, W. A. Knowlton, Gils pin Moore and Charles Deere, have all returned homo, and for the most part they give no reason for discouragement. They believe Hock Island's chances arc as bright as ever, that it has never dropped out of the sight of the commisssoners and and that tho final decision will be ren dered the first of tho week, which will be altogether acceptable to this community. Tho long delay of tho commissioners in giving their verdict is occasioned by their determination to do what they believe to be right. They wish to have no ground for complaint when they settle upon the location, which is best suited to the pur poses of the institution. A number of states have already lo cated soldiers' homes, and in each case the same difficulty has been experienced in deciding upon the site. Michigau has lo cated one this year at Grand Hapids. Pennsylvania has one at Erie. New Hampshire has one, as has Massachu setts, while Iowa will, in all probability, pass a bill this winter, appropriating a sufficient sum to establish a similar insti tution. The United States soldiers' home at Dayton, Ohio, which is the largest in the country, with an enrollmentof 6,1)00; one at Milwaukee with an enrollment of 1,200, one near Augusta, Maine, wilh an enrollment of 3,000, ouo at Hampton Roads, near Fortress Monroe, containing 800 mostly colored anil unoiher at Leavenworth, Kan., where 300 Union soldiers are sheltered. These latter, how ever, arc mostly disabled officers and sol diers of the regular army. In this state (here arc from 1,000 to 1,200 veterans iu need of a home. 420 of whom aro in Ihe various alms houses. Reck Island county has about it doen veterans who would pass their declining days in the insiitulinn. A Swindler's Flight. E. Meyer, who for six weeks has beeu the proprietor of the Fullon market on Second avenue near Twentieth street, has fiown. Be skipped by daylight this morning, leaving many creditors to mourn his departure. He is probably u swinii by nature and cultivation. Of late he has excited suspicion by attempting to bor row money about town and promising to pay it back during hankiug hours or as soon as an expected remiltnuce would comes in, and in many cases he succeeded in borrowing $10 or 20. Last week he received a drat t for $0 for one hundred ducks from a Davenport merchant. He pocketed the check, but did not send the ducks. He ordered several hundred tur keys from farmers in different parts of the county, ami when they came for their money yesterday he gave them checks on different banks which it is shown today, are bogus. Constable Larkin, who has bills against Meyer to the amount of $100, is in charge of Ihe Fulton market which has been beseiged by creditors all day. It is to be hoped tho rascal will be caught. Hn Way of Celebrating. Frank Murray, whose name has long been enlisted upon the roll of dissipated nuisances iu this city, chose hi3 own way of celebrating yesterday. He started out as usual by getting in a beastly state of intoxication, and went down to the levee in the lower end of the city, and after kindling a fire, lay down beside it to sleep off his stupor. The residents in that part of town wcro disturbed about the time they wore sitting down to partake of the bird which is annually offered up as a national sacrifice, when the cries of "murder," "help" "murder," rent the air. Hurrying in the direction from which the shrieks came, a number of bewildered citizens wore shocked to see Murray's outer clothing in flames. His overcoat had caught tiro and he had not the sense to put it out. The fire was quenched and Murray started off down the street wilh au opening in the back of his overcoat and through his outer clothing through which his red flannel underclothing shown in a spot tho size of a wash basin. This morning Officer Harris gathered Murray in, and locked him up. Social Pastimes . THE KlKKMliN'S DANCE. The annnal ball given by the Brother hood of Locomotive Firemen at the rink Wednesday evening, was the crowning society event of the season both as to at tendance and genuine social enjoyment. Over two hundred couples were present and tripped the merry waltz to the music of Strasser's orchestra. Supper was served at Armory hall, by St. Catharine's guild, the society realizing about $100, as a re sult of the excellent spread they served. THE MASQCBIIADE SEASON. The Young Men's Democratic club will give a masquerade party at Turner hall one week from- tonight. It will bo a grand and highly pleasant affair. Suits will be for rent at the hall. A Blot.

The National Day of Feast and Pruise The City Given Over to a Holi dayObservances. TUANKSfUVINO DAY. A more delightful Thanksgiving than yesterday has never been known in Bock Island, and while the day was very gen erally observed, it was not unalloyed pleasure, for everywhere signs of mourns ing toffj the national bereavement in the death of Vice President Hendricks. Citi zens, regardless of politics, discussed his sudden taking off in the hotels, on the street cars and on the streets nnd all de plored the death of one who twice has been placed in one of the foremost posK lions of American citizenship by four millions of his countrymen. In the churches where were gathered together concourses of people to sing praise and return thanks for the bounteous gifts and blessings of a seasou, the pastors alluded either in prayer or in the remarks pre liminary to tho sermon, of the great and sudden loss. The general appearance of Ihe town was very much like Sunday: in the after noon especially. Tho banks and publiu buildings were closed and business gcn orally was abandoned. In some of the mills, however, ana in out door structures, where work must be finished before cold weather sets iu, the round of toil went on. The day dawned clear and beautiful; not as a Thanksgiving day usually doeti, for the atmosphere was much milder than is gen erally the case at this season of the year. At the llurper, Hock Island and other hotels, turkey was of course the principal article on the bill of fare, and the guests partook of it with becoming delight. All over the proud city, families, distant relas tivesand friends enjoyed tho annual feast together. There never are second joints enough to satisfy the craving appetite for turkey, for the most annoying thing about a Thanksgiving dinner is that it is so ex tremely filling. Wheu you approach the turkey you wish you had not eaten so much fish or oysters, or whats ever tho previous course may have been, and when you draw near the mince nnd chicken pie, you wish you had let up on the turkey sooner, al though you may hnve done so beforo you were fully satisfied. You make a des perate effort to crowd down some plum pudding, nibble at the nuts and raisins aud eat a dozen Malaga grapes, aud then when you reach the parlor, wilh yourcycB feelinu as if they were protruding from your head, you wish you could forget to be polite and lounge around the rest of the day. You finish the day by wonder ing where you will be one year from now, and go to sleep and dream the turkey is after you wilh a butcher knife. at the euruoiiES. The effect of the inviting wenther was shown by the large attendance at all Ihe city churches where services were held. ihe Central Presbyterian, Baptist, Chris tian chapel and United Presbyterian united at the Christian chapel, where Rev, S. S. Cryer preached a beautiful mid appropriate sermon from the text, ''Signs of Tiniea." The-. Methodist and Broadway congregations held a union service at the church of the latter denom ination. Hev. Marquis delivered an ex cellent sermon on tho duties and proper observances of the feast. At Trinity church Kov. Sweet preached one of his best sermons on a topic appropriate to the day. THE KINK, which was really the only popular attrac tion, was crowded ttfleriioon and evening. The Rock Island Ulee club, composed ol Messrs. Cooke, Knocke, Collins and Corns, made their first appearance at the rink nnd gave in a delightful manner, "Health to tho Fairest," "I Long for Thee," and other popular airs. The trick and aciobatic bicyclists, Wcstbrook & Hacker gave a highly entertaining per formance, attesting their remarkable skill as masters aud champions of the bicycle. When there was not an attraction on the floor the rink was filled with skaters, and the liinc was 'spent pleasantly by thespec' talors as well as skaters. The dav's en- tcilainmcnt reflected much credit upon Manager Collins. THE SIIOOTINO OALI.EltlES were liberally palronzed. McGinley's gal lery on Fourth avenue, and Lavonc's, tin dor Harper's theatre, were well filled with young men anxious to try their skill as marksmen. At Lavonc's in the evening there was a contest for a silver cup, th.e conditions being the cup to go to the best scoro in ten shots. Thero wero eight contestants, George L. Taylor, of the Aus gus press room force, distinguishing him self by making 119 out of a possible 120, tho lowest reconi being 1!5. Obituary. Sad news was received in this city; Thursday morning; it was of the death there at 13 o'clock Wednesday night of Moses May, Esq., at Grand Rapids, Mich., who' was quite well known in this city. He was a brother to Messrs. Louis and Joseph May, Mrs. Joseph Rosenfield aud Mrs.' A.' Loeb.. He was 45 years of age and leaves a wife and daughter. Typhoid fever was the cause of his death. Deceased made many visits to Rock Isl and, the last time being to atleml the Wolff-Rosenflcld 1 wedding early this autumn. Mr. and Mrs. Joseph May have gone to Grand Hapids to attend the funeral. A Soldiers' Home in Iowa. . The project of having a soldiers' home in Iowa is being discussed in the Hawk eye state. The Graud Army of the state has asked the legislature to appropriate funds for such a purpose, and the proba bilities are that it will be done. A num ber of Iowa towns and cities are already pushing their claims as sites for the loca tion, and Iowa will next summer probably gu through a period of suspension sueb as Illinois has. I .

After adding the above to our extensive assortment of backgrounds and accessories, we feel that our work will become still more noted for rich effects and artistic posing. P KICKS. Quality considered, our prices are thelowest, but we do not advertise our prices for tho reason that among professional people only quacks and shysters give prominence to theircheapness of price. In Photographic work, KxrJUr. 1.1N( li is more desirable than cheapness. It U a mistake to suppose the gener al public does not understand the difference between good work and cheap work; were it otherwise we could not boast, of our success and the fact that the working force of our gallery is two assistants more than double the total force of all the other galleries in the city combined. At present our working force U ex double what it was a )-ear ago. This tells the story of a struggle between tine work and cheap work. THIS SPACE IS RESERVED von THE POPULAR CENTRAL SHOE STORE OK G.
