Watkina, the city scavenger, is mystified and troubled over the loss of a horse and mule, which occurred almost simultaneously on Tuesday. Thinking that something was wrong. Mr. AVaikins had an analysis made of the horse's stomach, and it is reported that particles of arsenic were discovered. Another animal belonging to him was laken slightly ill toJ.iy. bo far it is an tin fathomable and mysterious case. Hard Coal. Rock Island, as well as the west gen crally, is greatly interested in the price of hard coal. It 1ms really declined the last two years twenty per cent, and is s-till falling. A combination, however, repre tenting S50O.UiW.00O of capiul is using its power to keep up the price. This combination has always made the west pay big prices, but we hope to sec a re duction this season. The building of the Hennepin canal in this one item alone, would be worth millions of dollars to the west. Look at the frit-rund. f There will be blood on the face of the moon in the Second ward next Saturday night. Our valiant city marshal has long claimed to carry the republican vote-pin fact, the whole ward around in his pocket, and he proposes to show his vin flonence" at the ward caucus. C'hinn will also have something to say. and if the parson gets a delegate from that much-disturbed locality, it will he a won der- Eckhart depends on the K ing i too administration giving him a boost. His honor, the mayor, resides in that ward, as docs also J. K. Cooke, the sweet warbler of the republican glee club, and numerous lesser lights in the republican party. Action on the Hennepin. The Davenport Gazette says that ves terday a meeting of the representative business men of D ivcnport, R ck Island and Moline was held at the Kimbali house parlors to take action upon the Hennepin ennui. The object of the meet ing was to send a vote of thanks to those senators who stood by the measure and to urge the passage of the riv.r and harbor bill with its Hennepin amendment and to stand by it whether victory or defeat at tends the whole. A committee w is ap pointed to urge tne public interests of Kansas Cit;., St. Paul, Omaha and other cities 10 push the Utinepin to the front as the suc.'ess and future greatness of the country demands its passage. Another. .And still they come republican can didates for otCce. With remarkable in trepidiiy, Jacob Huuer, at llrs late day, announces himself a candidate for counly treasurer, scorning the strength of Messrs. Burgh, Campbell, et al. How lluber ex pects to cut any figure in the convention we are at a loss to know, but he probably sees a chanca to capture a delegation or two. Uu candidacy will not be consol ing balm to the host of other candidates in the city, who feel that the couutry brethren have already arrived at lie con clusion tnat they are altogether too eieedy. The only peaceable wnv out ot the dilemma into which the republicans have f illen, is to provide more III , Tlie Hay Crap. From pru-' ut uppearanci: tin corn crop, in this immediate locality at lens', will be very short. The lack of rain up to this date has almost ruined the crop There is a question, too, eveu it rain sh mid fall wiimu ten days, whether it would aid in advancing the corn crop. But tne f irmere and all olner consumers can congratulate themselves on haviog a hay crop, never surpassed hereabouts. Id carryin g stock through to next season this crop will be worth millions of dollars to the localities which are suffering from the drought. And the manner in which the hay baa been cured and harvested adds greatly to its richness and good quality. THE LOW WATER. It Interfere Ureatljr With River X a v-Ig-atf on, m ajr the stream beat Ken. The drouth occasions a big loss in rev enue to the packet companies, as all the steamers are compelled to run light and make slow time on account of the low stage of the water. Capt. Boland, of the Mary Morton, said to the Gate City. "The June water was lower than I ever saw It before, and it has been going down steadily ever since. 'There are forty inches in the channel, and if it does not rain I am afraid it will goon go down to thirty. Several boats can stand that, but if it goes below thirty, business will be inter fered with. It has been necessary some times to make three changes to lighter and still lighter boats in coint; to St. Paul, the shifts being at Keokuk, Daven port and Hastings." "How low have you seen the water. Captain?" "Well, sir, I have seen it so low at some places that we have had trouble scaring the calves away from the front of the boat. That was in 1859. The whis tle was used for that purpose, and some -times we would have to keep her going continually for a long time. Fact, sir, I assure you. Near Waucouta, at the head of Lake Pepin, there is an island in the river which has good grass, and the cbws and calves could wade through the low water to the island. That year the Pembinaw went aground at the head of Maquoketa slough, twenty miles above Dubuque, and they couldn't get ber off for several weeks. The crew all left her, and the freight was taken off." "Pilot W. Blakesley, of the Josephine, said: I have seen the water as low as twenty inches. That was in 1864 . Nothiog but the lightest boats could do anything, and, they had trouble to pull througn. The 'Long Annie' would carry freight with a draft of only sixteen inches when she was first put out, and she was needed to go through to St . Paul. It was very low in the fall of '77 too. But matters are much better now owing to the great improvements which have been made in the river by the government, and here will probably never be so much difficulty as we bad at the times I speak of. The channel crows better in low water, whi'.'h is another help except for this it is likely even the improvements made would not allow us to go all the whv up. liut the water has been so low lately that if the improvements had not been made we would probably have tud to stop running good sized boats a month ago. ucb as the Josephine and Mary Morion draw thirty inches when light, of a anil we can't stand much more fall." Payne and Morgan. It is with considerable pleasure that we notice that ex-Sberiff Payne, of Zunia, has extended the rigbt hand of fellowship to Hro. Morgan, and proposes to assist the reverend gentleman in his candidacy for sheriff. The Cnion savs ttat Bro. Morgan, accompanied by Slate's Attor ney Enlrittin and Howard Wells, went to Joslin yesterday morning, and they were met at the depot by Mr. Fayne with a handsome team. It is further stated that the gentleman from Zuma introduced Bro. Morgan to his neichbots, and urged them to support him for sheriff. What magnanimous spirit is this! In this cold (hot just now) and callous world what pleasure is it to witness such noble ness of soul. Though the effort may have cost him a pang, Bro. Payne strutted manfully agaiust his feelings, aud with a truly spartan spirit relin quished bis claim on the utllcc of sheriff. Now that Zuma has declared herself for Morgan, his nomination seems to be a certainty, although we still have Eckhart and Chinn in the Second ward. But as have sail before, Moline has the whip-band of the republican party in the county, and she generally gets what she wants. Morgan is fortunate in coming from Moline. The InHtitnte. Although the weather is warm, the In stitute fairly booms. The zoology class under Prof. Hatch, did good work on the analysis of fishes, he having many specimens from Kock river and Mill creek. The botany class numbers about forty, taught by Mr. Harper. Tue num ber present at the morning music drill was one hundred The drill given by Prof. House! is very interesting, and every day something new is presented. This branch of education should be titight in every school district in the csunty. Ilistury, by Prof. Felmley, was brought before the class, with a relief map of the Getlysburc battlefield. Ped agogy, by Mr. Reed, increases in interest every day. The number enrolled up to the present day is 101. Superintendent Southwell, ever present, is doing biB part directing aud counselling his teachers, welcoming visitors, and looking after the work in general. At 2 p. m. the Natural science classes went by the C. M. & St. P. railroad to Port Byron junction, ac companied by other members of thu in stitute to do a little field work in the line of their studies. The excursion will return al 6:40. A Colored Jubilee. A colored jubilee, or in parlance plain a picnic, was held by the colored denizens uf Muscatine and Davenport today at a point half way between the two cities. Persons out at an early hour this mom um imagined lual the lontr looke'l lot ram was at hand, but it w ,s suiioly crowd oi Rock Inland's colored popula tion bound for the picnic that clouded the horizon. Among the number was James Adams, the lonsorial artist at Terrell's, who had a watermelon under each arm, and a grin on his countonance extending from ear to ear. School Board. The Board of Educaliou ueld an unim portant meeting last night. The con tracts were let for several small jobs around the school houses. A bill for $15 was allowed the Argus for publish ing the annual statement, and $4 to Superintendent Kcmble fat office work paid out of his own pocket. WILSON WINS. An Important Rock .Inland Connty Case Decided at Chirac. A very important suit was dismissed by Judge Gresham in the United States circuit court in Chicago yesterday. It was that of Calvin H. Allen and others against J. H. Wilson, and the. Banner Coal company, of this county. The bill was filed by the minority stockholders to compel Wilson, who owns $300,000 of the $500,000 capiul stock, to turn over some $118,000. In 1886 the company was largely indebted. It leased to Wil son its coal and farm lands, soma 1,780 acres. The coal fields were undeveloped, and for the purpose of developing them, Wilson advanced the necessary funds. The complainants and all the other mi nority stockholders refused to go in with Wilson in this venture or to make any advances for this purpose. All the stockholders knew what Wilson was do ing and approved it. Finally Wilson succeeded in making the enterprise profit able to him as lessee, and the complain", ants as minority stockholders filed this bill to make Wilson account for these profits. There was no fraud charged or proven against Wilson except the aver ment in the bill that as majority stockholder he elected his own manag ing board. The trial occupied several days. Judge Gresham held that the complaining stockholders had not shown themselves entitled to bring this suit in the place and stead of the corporation, because they had shown no demand upon the board of directors to correct the wrongs complained of or to bring suit, and no excuse for not making such a de mand. Again, that they were not entit led to recover upon the merits, because all Wilson's acts were approved by the minority stockholders with full knowl edge of what Wilson was doing, and be cause during all the years he was invest ing his money and attempting to make the enterprise a success they stood by without objection, if not with express ap proval. Lastly, that no stockholder can be heard to complain in equity if he had the opportunity to object to the action of a majority and did not do so. In the present case Crubaugb, one of the de fendants, was the leading spirit for the prosecution, and he had always voted with Wilson, and was therefore estopp ed. The complainants likewise, when tliey voted, also voted with Wilson in both stockholders', and directors' meet ings, and were likewise estopped. The case was declared in favor of the de fence, and dismissed at complainants' cost. Messrs. Sweeney & Walker, of this city, and G. W. Kretzinger, of Chicago, were counsel for the defence, and Os born & Lyode for complainants. A Birthday. Even aldermen have birthdays. Yes terday was the 87th anniversary of the birth of Alderman Basilius Winter, and he invited, a few of his gentlemen friends to enjoy the evening at his pleasaut real dence. He has recently made extensive improvements in his house, adding story to it, and remodeling it in othi ways. He led the guests to suppose that the affair was to be a house warming, upon the completion of the-improvements, for fear they would take it into their heads to make him a present of some kind, and this the mod est alderman objected to. An excellent supper was served about 11 o'clock, which tempted the appetites of the guests. An attractive object on the table was a large cake, upon whii:h stood tbirty-stven candles, of various colors, all lighted. It was the work of Mrs. Winter aud was much admired. The general wish of the assemblage was that Mr. Winter should live to be a hundred years old. An Old Citizen t.one. There depLrted this life at his resi dence, No. 1718, Third avenue, this mornin" about six o'clock, Louis M. Webber, one of the oldest residents of this city. He was born in Vermont, and removed to Rock Island at an early day. For many years he was a promi nent merchant, but he was financially embarrassed during the crisis of 1857. He acted as citv marshal from 1871 to 1872, under the administration of ex-Mayor Porter Skinner. Death was caused bv old age and nervous exhaustion. His age was 77 years, 2 months and 12 days. The funeial will occur from his late residence at 2 p. ru. tomorrow. Mrs Julia Dean, daughter of Harrison aud Hannah Boggess, of this city, died at her home inG'arloo.Iona, on Tuesday aged 33 years and 4 months. She leaves a husband and five children.

Anvonc v. ho has ever dealt in lands, knows that no investment of money will so surely and quicklv yield a return, as ucb a venture if carefully made, to the absolute safety o a government bond, is added a profit far in excess of rate of interest which can he obtained on any safe loan. In Kansas and Neb raska especially lands are raising in value very rapidly and with a steady growth which gives assurance of stability. The troud season and the great tide of iuimi. ration into thesb slates has made invest ment there doubly safe and desirable. The climate of Southern Nebraska ami of Kansas, free as it is from the Ion rigourous cold winter, added to a soil unsurpassed for richness and productive capacity, has made possible the wonderful development of these states, lo the far mer they hold out special inducements. Cheap land, easy term of purchase, good markets and varied products enable bun to own bis farm at a smaller cost and with less labor than is required to pay reot for the land he occupies here, or the interest on the money he has invested in it. If you are looking lor a sale place lo invest money, where it will pay you a large aud sure profit, or if you are a farm er and want a farm of your own, call on me and see what 1 have to offer. I will make the visit profitable to you. Office over American Express otlice, Hock Is land. 111. &AVILLE JOHNSTOK. A Creator Man Than Sitlmiion.

The American Hnmane Association presents the following suggestions relative to the care of animals duiing the heated term. Provide water fresh. Dure water. Think, reader, how you are refreshed by a arinK ot cool water on a hot day. The lower animals are equally in need of the means of quenching thirst. ine active doe reuulrcs dnnk freuuents ly during the hot day, as does also the cat ; and a dish of fresh water should stand where they can have access to it. Un doubtedly many a dog is driven to mad ness through lack ot water; and the testi mony is that hydrophobia is almost uns known in those localities where does can drink when they wish. hvery city, villiage and country town should be liberally supplied with drinks ing fountains for animals, and they should be so constructed that even the smallest dogs can drink from them. No gift to a people confers a greater pleasure than a fountain, and that person who turns aside a stream from the field and gives a waters ing trough to the roadside, or provide a fountain at which man and beast can drink pure water, is truly a public ben- slactor. Give the horse frequent opportunity to quench thirft at times when not too much over heated, and before eating. To drink freely immediately after eating prevents a favorable digestion of food . Provide shade. How instinctlvly wc seek the shadow when the sun is pouring its hot rays on the dry and parchiug earlb. If tne pasture is notr provide with shade trees, in a convcuient locality set four, six or eisht supports, across which place straw or grass, and thus, in a brief time and wilh little labor make a shade in which animals cfin rest from the heat of the sup, to the great comfort of them selves and benefit to their owuers Remove the harness from the horses in the hoi day wbenuver you desire to give them a full, free rest, aud once during the day, preferably at night, a thorough cur rying and grooming will nut only give rest, but will do about as much towards improving the animal s condition as will the oats. Examine the harness on your working team, and vou will discover that blinds, check-riens and cruppers are simply tor - tunng contrivance?, serving no useful purpose. Take them all off for the con venience of yourselves and the comfort of the horses. Keep the stable well venti lated and free from the strong amonia, which is injurious to the eyes. Assist the animals to protect themselves against Hies, feed regularly, bitch in the shade, and remember that the care which will give comfort to the lower animals will make them boubly profitable lo their own ner,, aside from the humane bearing upon the subject.
