Mars was tarred and feathered in Moiine a year ago for the same crime, and dually driven out of town.

Were it more impcifect it wnuld still be dingnrous, as the public arc not yet familiar with the genuine. The counter feit is o cleverly executed that bankers at first sight pronounced it genuine. The only means of detection presented is a slight Oaw on the back of the certificate. THE DRIVING PARK. Eneaaractnff Meeting- at the Harper House Hatarday Xight---t'om-aalttee Appointed. A largely attended meeting was held at the Harper house Saturday evening to take into contemplation the leasing or purchasing of ground suitable to the pur poses ot a driving park in Rock Island. Moline was well represented, and Capt. W. C. Bennett, of that city, was chosen chairman. Messrs. Homer J. Lowrey and A. W. Bruner reported on having in spected desirable tracts for the proposed enterprise one piece of property near Brooks' grove, east of the city, and an other on the south side of the old fair grounds. Mr. Goode, of Moline, moved that a committee of three be appointed to take into consideration the matter to look up the locations, etc., for suitable grounds and report at another mee'ing next Saturday evening. The chair ap pointed as such committee, Messrs. II. J. Lowrcy and A. W. Bruuer, of this city, and John Goodo, of Moline. The purpose of the park is not so much to have trotting meetings as to have 'a local place for popular pleasure. It is the desigo of course to have meetings periodic illy during the proper season, but the chief end and aim is to secure a park which will always be here, and to have it accessible at all times, to both towns. Hence the site mentioned i-.i the Brook's estate, is the more desirable of the two proposed. A driving park not only furnishes pleasant pastimes to those being fortunate in the possession of fast horses, but it has a leniency to breed turf favorites. In cities where driving parks have been inaugurated the rule has always been an increase in good horse flesh and Rock Island has in its time produced a remarkable record in this direction. There is no reason why this reputation should not be maintained and continued. The committee appointed Saturday night will devote the week to the muter in its bauds and will no doubt have a satisfactory report to make at the meet ing next Siturday night. Aimrrand Her f ijrarettrM. The coming of Marie Aimee to this city shortly excites interest in all of her actions and peculiarities. The little lady enjoys the smoking of cigarettes, and the Pittsburg leader man has been sees ing her do it. He says that Aimee rolls her own cigarettes. She has her rice paper made especially in Paris, and the tobacco is the finest Virgiuia grain, of a rich yellow color, and highly flavored She keeps her tobacco in a scented chamois skin big. covered with satin, on which is worked her monogram in blue and gold beads. It is a study to see her make her cigarettes, The operation would cause the most skillful citrarcttc irl to throw up her job in des pair. Aimee hrst takes the bag and shakes up the contents. Then sue delicately snatches the paper from th liny tablet and curls it softly with one hand, and then curls it the other way to make it pliable. She holds the bag high aloft and poises it gracefully over the paper and lips it like a garcon mixing a fancv drink, and the tobacco falls in a golden shower. Ibis portion of the op erali'-n is superbly inimitable. Aimee generally smiles when she does it in the presence of her friends, as though to mock their own inability in that direc ti'in. Next she takes one end of the p i ner in each hand and rolls it and twists it simultaneously. It is all done in three seconds and then the fair Parisian lights the cigarette with a tiny wax match, ami in a second a thin stream of smoke curling upward and wreiihing around the chandelier.

Saturday afternoon between 4 30 and 5 o'clock, the house occupied by Charles Ycrbury. corner of Thirteenth street and Second avenue, was discovered to bo in flumes. The Wideawake hose and book and ladder companies turned out and soon hid the tire under control. The fire is supposed to have had its origin in a defective flue which passes through closet.

An Interrttlng Meeting at the Broad way t'hureh Last Evening. The Broadway Presbyterian church contained a large congregation last even ing, the service being devoted expressly to young men. It was a T. M. C. A. meeting, and the services were of a na ture befitting the occasion. A choir of male voices, consisting of Messrs. Blakes- Mi.xter, McCandless and Marquis reus dered several fine selections, and Rev. W. Marquis preached an impressive ser mon. His text was taken irom rroverus 4, his subject being. "Why Are Not oung Men I'refessmg tnnstiansr air. Marquis first spoke of the interest every nation took in its youug men, illustrating is by the great achievements made by the voung men in an honorable way, as ell as in the way of crime and evil. He compauied his remarks with interesting statistics, and in reply to the question asked in his subject. "Why Arc Not oung Men Professing Christians?" gave five reasons: The first was, because it is not fashionable; a great manv stay out because others don't belong. The sec ond reason was, men have a strange idea that it will clip their pleasures and cramp them in business successes. The third reason was, because of the absence of proper home training. The fourth rea son he gave, was the fact that they ate not approached soon enough on the .sub et of personal religion, and the fifth ! lack of special agencies to meet and battle with tie influences of corruption. Mr. Marquis urged more of such agen cies as the l. M. C. A., and gave the tatisii-s of the Y. M. C. A. work, and made a strong plea for a continuation and increase in Y. M. C. A. work here, and in the world in general. The collec lion was made for the international Y. M. C. A. committee, as it was in many other f the city churches yesterday. liKlKFLETS.

It is really disgraceful that taxpayers should lie asked to defray the cost of ali royal iw.ssages across the channel. Every time the Prince of Wales crosses to Calais or rJoulopne the public have to iy 40, and evn the traveling expenses ol the Grand Duke of licss and the tincod IMichi'ss of Mtvklintiurg- Strctitz and other inemliers of the family are borne by the country. All these pivple re ceive large allowances, out of whirfi they ousht U be made to defray sudi ei(ieiises in stead of cadiring on the taxi savers in this scandalous fashion, especially as the whole of these passages are mere pleasure trips.
