THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 28, 1886.
A "HOLIDAY HOP." Am Important mail Enjoyable Mortal Kveat at Tamer Ball iMt Evealns. Last evening occurred one of the most delightful dances which has taken place in the city for some time, aid the remem brance of it will linger with those whose pleasure it was to partic ipate. We refer to the holiday dance which was held at Turner hall. The hall ifi small but comfortable, and well adap ted for dancing. Rock Island, Daven port and Molinc were represented, and it would appear as if there was to be revival of the jolly times which used to characterize, some few years back, the society of the three cities. To invoke the Divine blessing on such a revival would be a fitting tribute to the pleasures of the by gone years. About 9 o'clock the merry dancers began to collect, com ing by twos and fours; not long after the first dance of the programme, the lancicra was formed, and from the happy smiling faces of all, it was evident that a jolly cobd time was anticipated. The elegant costumes of the ladies, rivaled only by their bright winsom faces, gave glow and color to the scene. The first dauce was followed by a variety ot dances, waltzes, polkas and plain quadrilles sufficient to suit the most fastidious devotee of the tcrpsichorean art. Dancing is conducive of eood appetites and the ladies of Trinity Guild were the recipients of much praise, deserved praise too for the sup per they furnished. The dance was complete success, am! one and all were sorry to leave; but "good night" hail to be said and the party was over at 3 o'clock this morning. Schillincor's orchestra furnished the mnsiee. Those present were: Ohaperoues: Mrs. Gen. lluffincn, Mrs. T. Iiuford. Ladies Misses Leonard, Kuhmn, Delaney, Dcy, Anna Deere, Kathcrine Deere, MasoD, Calkins, Moore, Lizzie Kembie, Carrie Kemble, Grace Dart, Crampton. Stod dard, Hull, Babcock. Kosenfald, Burgh. Gentlemen: Messrs. Kuhnen, VanPatten, McCullough, Kifer, Ballnu, Martin. Mur phy, (July, Friberg, Will Vilie, Charles V'elie, Davis, Lee Gait, John Gait, Lynde, Freeman, Iilauding, White, Jiulinscn, Connelly, Medill, Whitehead, Cable, Pleasants, Stoddard, Buford, Bosciifield, ' Tt geler. A Good Investment. Anyone who has ever dealt in lauds, knows that do investment of money will so surely and quickly yield a return, as such a veuturc if carefully made. To the absolute safety of a government bond, is added a profit far in excess of rate of interest which can be obtained on aoy safe loan. In Kansas and Neb raska especially lands are raising in value very rapidly an.) with a steady growth which gives assurauce of stability. The goo.1 season and the treat tide of inimi'. gralion into these stales has made invest ment there doubly safe and desirable. Tiie climate of Southern Nebraska and of Kansas, flee as it is from the long rigourous told winter, added to a soil unsurpassed for richness and productive capacity, has made possible the wonderful development of these stales. To the far mer tbey hoid out special inducements. Cheap land, easv term of purchase, good markets and varied products enable him to own his farm at a smaller cost and with less labor than is required to iisiv rent for the land he occupies here, or the interest on the money he has invested in it. If you are looking for a safe place to invest money, where it will pay you large and sure profit, or if you are a farnv e erand want a farm of your own, call on me and see what 1 have to offer. I wi make the Tisit profitable to you. Office over American Express office, Kock Is' lan i. III. Saviij.e Johnston. Kiehl.

Biehl is me employ ot tne Itaxlnii Heating com pany at Ken auee. and this with his pro fession as musician, gives him plenty of lucrative employment, the Kewanee Indejieniieiit has this to say of a recent band concert given there: Few, perhaps realize the difficulties wnich a baid gotten up as this one was. has to encounter in order to achieve suc cess. But it has done wonderfully well, ami now, with Prof. Biehl leader, it has taken a bold step for ward, and the professor promises that by spring, Kewanee will have a band which they will not recnguize as the one which played here last season. AimoNt Frozen to Death. iany Sunday morning a lady was found leaning over the railing on the government bridge, in an almost coma tose condition. She was taken to Da venport in a mail wagon, driven to the police station, where a physician visited her and succeeded in reviving animatiou. Her name is McGinuis, and she came in from Milwaukee on the early train on the C, M. & St. P. road. But for her timely discovery she would have frozen to death. The street railway across the bridge would prevent such disasters as this. . Big Deal. A few months ago Mr. J. VV. McCabe, formerly of this city, and brother toL. S.

(.seal Kentimeat I'aam the Death af the lUiaols galdler-Mtates-mmm. ACTIOS OF THE BUSINESS MEN. In pursuance to a call from President Ferguson, a special meeting of the Rock Island Business Men's Association was held at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon to take action upon the death of the dis tinguished IUinoisan. There was an uu usually large attendance present, and the following message of sorrow and sympa thy was immediately telegraphed Mrs. Logan at Washington : Kock Island, 111., Dec. 27. The Bus iness Men's Association of this city has instructed us to convey to you its heart felt sympathy in your bereavmcnt and in the nation 8 loss. Gen. Logan was our friend and the friend of the people. Wm. B. Ferguson, Pres . It was further decided to prepare a more complete expression of sentiment. to be forwarded by mail to Mrs. Logan, and be published by the local press. A committee for such a purpose was an pointed, consisting of Hon, W. H. Gest, Capt. T. J. Robinson, and Messrs. E. W Hurst, J. M. Montgomery, W. 8. Knowl- ton and F. Weyerhaeuser. Last evening the committee reported the followiug: The Business Men's association of Rock Island, 111., have heard with pro found sorrow of the death of Gen. John A. Logan, the senior United States sena tor from Illinois. Tbey have known him to be a true and gallant soldier; an able and faithful representative in congress of the state at large, and a most distinv guished and powerful champion in the United States senate. And while they have been proud of his ability, his integ rity and his commanding influence, they have been equally proud of the fact that no man was too poor and bumble to fail of his comradeship and generous out spoken influence. Gen. John A. Logan was emphatically a man of the people.the friend of the common laborer and the advocate ot the private soldier, and we would have Ibis remembered while the nation mourns the loss of a great volun teer general, an able defender of the constitution and laws and a conspicuous champion of liberty and equal rights. In his death the common people recognize a great loss, and all citizens mourn. SORROW OF BDFORD POST. Last evening a special meeting of Bu ford Post, No. 243, G. A. R , was held. Maj. fl . C. Connelly presented a declar ation which, upon motion of Capt. 17. Cleavcland, was adopted unanimously as follows: Gen. Logan is Dead! It is with feelings of the most profound sorrow that the members of Maj. Gen. John Bu rn rost, ao. 243, G. A. K , give ex pressions to their sympathy in the death of Gen. John A.Logan. The old sol diers of the republic wherever tbey may be found will keenly feel the death of btir chief. We of Illinois especially have lost a soldier-friend whose place can never be tilled. In the great war of the rebellion his record will always be bril liant and bright as a beautiful star. In civil life no statesman, no patriot, has made a purer, a nobler record. In the deepest sorrow we yield to the will of a ust Providence, and with bowed heads drop a tear to his memory. We need not say we sympathize with his stricken family. We have no words in wh:ch to express our great bereavement. Vie have no words in which to extress the oss to Illinois. We have no words in which to express the loss to our great country. Peace to the memory of the gallant soldier! Peace to the memory of the intrepid statesman! Peace to" the memory of the unsullied citizen! Peace to the memory of our brave comrade!
