At the last meeting of the Iowa and Illinois Central District Medical society, while the subject of the prevalence and fatality of diphtheria and scarlet fever were being discussed, the subject of the part domestic animals play in the spread of these diseases was remarked by several of the doctors present. One speaker cited a case of scarlet fever that he was ealled to treat in one of the trinities, some years ago a little boy, some 5 or 6 years of age. The case terminated fatal ly, after a few days. During the little fellow's illness his bed was made the stopping place of a cat that bad long been a favorite with the boy. After the fun eral the parents decided to go east, for a few weeks, and the cat was sent to a friend's bouse, some eighteen miles in the country. This friend had a little boy, about the same age as the one that had just died. In a week after the arrival of the cat in its new home, the only child was taken down with scarlet fever, and, in a few days, died. The parents had not been away from home with the boy, nor had there been a esse of the disease in the neighborhood previous to this one. Very evidently, the only way the disease could have been carried into that house was by the cat. Another puysictan related a circum stance that came under his knowledge some years ago. Soon after he came to his present location a friend in a neighboring city sent for him to Bee a sick child, a sister of the child having died very suddenly and some doubt ex isting in the minds of the parents as to the cause of deth. The doctor pro nounced the case one of scarlet fever and approved of the treatment then be ing made, and went home. His own family constsiied of a boy of five and sev eral girls some years older.

REMEMBER KANN & FLEMMIN6, MAKE A SPECIALTY IN LOW PRICES, N"o. 1811 Second Avenue. Between Eighteenth and Nineteenth Slreets, ays the boy was taken down with the disease and during his illneos a cat that had been brought to the new home from distance was the bov's constant com- paiion. The boy died, and very soon after bis deaih the cat with symptoms very mucn use tnose tbe child had- -sore throat, loss of appetite, etc. The chil dren found an old cushion, and patting it in a box. fitted up a comfortable bed for the cat. After a few day's illness the cat died and the doctor examined it and satisfied himself that the cat had really died of scarlet fever. The box aD'l cushion lay in the back yard for gome time, and finally, whn a man was hiredlo chop some wood, the box was broken up and the cushion thrown on the top of an old wood bouse, where it temaioed exposed to the sun and rain for three or four mouths. In the meantime the other children of the familv bad the disense and all recovered. At the end of the three or four months from the time of the family pet'B death, a strange cat enme that way and the children adopted the new comer. By and by they began to look about for a house for the cat and her prospective family. A new box was found and the old cushion brought down. In a few dajs the old cat and the whole family of kittens were tak en with sore throat and in less than a week all died of what tbe doctor found on examination to be scarlet fever. That the source of infection was in the old cushion hardly admits of a doubt, and that its vitality should remain so long is only aootber proof of what doctors claim, namely: That only by systematic infec tion can these diseases be controlled. There seemed to be a very generally prevailing sentiment that domestic ani mals spread contagious disease, and that under such circumstances both cats end dogs should be excluded from houses in which people are sick, no matter whether the illness be of a contagious nature or not. Apropos of this very subject, there is in Rock Island today a kitten which man ifests unmistakable signs of chicken pox, which it has doubtless contracted from tbe children who own and who play with it all having the disease. Mr. W. C. Welch Called t Ma Laa Home -Demise ar K. B. Barber. W. C WXLCH. The hand of death hat been laid upon one of our well known and highly es teemed citizen. Mr. William C. Welch sank quietly to rest at bis residence 2505 8eventh avenue at a few minutes past I o'clock yesterday morning, after a long and painful illness. Though a great sufferer, he was always cheerful and for months he has been calmly waiting for the end. To him the silent messenger was quite welcome, and he has now entered into his longed for rest Mr, Welch was born February 10, 1837, at Bonesdale, Pa., where his aged parents still reside. The family con sisted of one daughter, the oldest, and six sons, the oldest of whom was Wil liam. His two brothers, John W. and Frank P., of this city, were at his bed side when he died. Having been in the employ of Mr. Henry Dart at Honesdale, he moved with him to Rock Island in Hay, 1857, and continued with the firm of Henry Dart & Sons in the wholesale and retail grocery business un til 1861, at which time he went to Idaho. Returning to Rock Island in 1865, he en gaged for a short time in the match busi ness with the late Alvin Hull, but soon atter went with his old employers, where he continued till 1867, when he, in part nership with Joseph Gregg, a fellow em ploye, succeeded to the retail business of Henry Dart & Sons, under the firm name of Welch & Gregg. This firm was dis solved in 1872, and after continuing the business alone till 1875, he took his brother Frank into partnership, which laBted till 1886, when Mr. Welch's failing health induced them to sell out to Messrs. Truesdale & O'Connor. Mr. Welch was married March 1, 1866, to Miss Jane Armstrong, who has been to him in his long sickness a most devoted and attentive helpmeet. For months she has not been away from calling distance. and she has been untiring in her efforts to make him comfortable aod happy. He united with with the Pres hvterian church in May, 1869, and he and his wife were charter members of the Broadway church of which he has been either a deacon or elder since its or ganizilion. Their aid in the church's completion and growth can neyer be for THIS BALMY WEATHER. It I Aliatether Toa Amiable far Home Llara of Baalneas, Yet J oat The Tli In x far Stork Kalaev.

At the Tamer Grand opera house next Wednesday evening, December 12, will be given for the first time in Davenport, the thrilling drama, "Ranch 10 " This is not, as may be supposed from its title, a blood and thunder drama, but a popular and successful play by a good company, and full of scenic effects. A recent issue of the Quincy (III.) Whig, spetking of the play, says: "Ranch 10" was the attraction at tbe opera bouse last night. Tbe play always bits the public fancy, because it is forci ble and natural, with rich bumorand just notign romance to make it pleasant. The thrilling frontier scenes were given grand style, and the situations were effective. Mr. J. Clinton Hall and Miss Fay Chester played the leading roles ef feclivelv, the judge "consulted the au thorities as usual, and the play eave good satisfaction. WALL PAPER at a BARGAIN Aod This la :onalatrnryir) Messrs. Clemann & Salzmann have just received an order from a party in Davenport to turnisn ana carpet a nonse of twentv rooms in that city. People will go where tbey can buy the cheapest. t nwn. And we repeat the Union wants to pot a barrier between those people and the place where they can buy the cheapest. It has fruitlessly aimed to deny tbem easy convenience of getting to Rocs: Island to get cheaper goods unless it be during the season when the ferry can run. Cons sistency certainly is a mockery when the Union attempts to represent it. a-.v:v::v:v;y.i 0 Hi 3 0 CD ft "'Mhe Ian irKvsi stock in the citv. and are bound to sell, and prices are .

Mr. Welch was a director in the Rock Island National Bank since its organiza tion. Of his character we might say it was blameless. He was kind to the poor aod courteous to all. Esteemed alike for his integrity, generosity, modesty and piety his loss to the church and tbe com munity will be deeply mourned. Of few could it be said more 6ttingly than of him "Mark the perfect mao, and behold the upright; for the end of that man is peace." The funeral took place from the Broadway church at 3 o'clock to-day Revs- W. 8. Marquis, pastor, and Prof. Weidner, of Augastana College officiat ing. The pail bearers were Messrs. C. A. Rose, C. J. Dart, 3. F. Robinson, David Thompson, Dr. S. C. Plummer. Jr., and Dr. J. W. Stewart. The floral tributes were abundant and beautiful. E. H BARKER. Mr. K. H. Barker died a; his home 618 Eleventh street, at 8:80 this morning, of gangrene and erysipelas, resulting from tbe injuries he received in falling from bis ice hona below the city lut Wednesday morning. As heretofore stated in the Arohs. Mr. Barker's right wrist was fractured and dislocated by the fall, while bis left wrist was dislocated Dr. S. C. Plummer, Sr.. who first attend ed the sufferer, had no apprehension as to the outcome of the injuries until erysipelas set in, followed by gangrene, which spread to the shoulder and to the upper portion of the body before it could be controlled. Dr. Gait and Dr. S. U Plummer, Jr., were called into consults tion, and it was decided that amputation was decidedly necessary, but tbe opera tion was impossible until the spread of the erysipelas could be staid. This the doctors were unable to do and Mr. Bar ker died. Deceaseed was born in New York state. May 14, 1831. He married Miss Jeanette Jewell in Michigan, and came to Illinois in IMS settling in Bureau county In 1858 he came to Rock Isl and being engaged for a number of years as teamster but afterward embark ed in tbe ice business, in which pursuit he has been actively engaged for a great many years. Mrs. Barker survives her husband, with three sons, George, Wilbur and Walter all at home. Mr. Barker was industrious and uprigpht in his habits and was well liked by all who knew him. He was a member of Noble Lodge No. 1. A. O. TJ. W under whose auspices the funeral will be held, to-morrow morning at 10 o'clock. The weather for this season of the year could not be more amiable. It is dealing, as the Davenport Timet remarks with more truth than poetry, too gently with as. It is like autumn lingering at the feet of January a sort of repentant Magdalen, who, tirejj ofof her icy frail ties, snow flirtations and blizzard aban don, seeks to make amends by favoring ns with weather more austral than hyper borean. It has more of the touch ot North Louisiana than of a priarie state exposed to the exhalations of the Great Lakes and in line with the western curs rents of snow drift and low temperature. On all sides are preparations for Christ mas, usually mid winter with us, yet an overcoat is not a necessity, and a seal skin ssque, smelling of camphor and lav endar, seems as much out of place and time as would o sleigh ride on July the This is all very pleasant for those wbo can enjoy it, who reck not of the old proverb that "a green Christmas makes a fat grave yard;" all very "fine and large," for those who look npon it as Byron did on Waterloo "a splendid sight, for him who bad no friend or brother there," but with a certain class of our merchants it is awfully discour aging. The clothing dealers, fur dealers, hat and cap men and boot and shoe men who have laid in large stocks are not in the most amiable mood. They would prefer a new weather clerk to the new president who has been popping his shotgun at the fat quail on the moorlands of Hoosier dom. They bought many of their goodB on sixty and ninety days' time, yet their stock has scarcely been disturbed by tbe quest of the purchaser. Winter proper for this latitude ia almost half over and their bills must be met. They are lucky if they have an accrued capital to fall back upon with which 10 meet these obli gations. Certainlv their sales of the past three months will not straighten them out financially. And this is not the woist feature. Even should tbe cold weather begin in earnest and bring their goods more in demand, few will feel like inveat- oe in costly furs, overcoats or winter clothing on account of the small remnant f winter yet left in which to wear them. Tbe result will be that our merchants will be handicapped with heavy hold over stocks, which they must sell at a heavy sacrifice to the few who need lheir goods or run the ri?k of carrying goods which will prove to be unfashionable in the next winter season. Certain it is that if peo ple do actually require anything in these lines thev can now be sure of buying them very cheaply. But this is decidedly se vere on the merchants and has a direct tendencv to cripple all other kin is of business. On the other hand the granger or the stock grower comes up smiling and sur veys the trade depression with feelings of elation. He is supremely contented. This weather is a friend of his. He hopes it will continue so. His cattle are not "eating their heads off' so far this winter. They are still grazing in the yellow and russet meadows, requiring vcrv little other nourishment. Feed for bis cattle costs him little or nothing What is other men's poison is his meat, and bis meat is growing on the ribs of ft kioe. who ao far require neither housing nor heavy rations of bay and corn and stiff hot gruels of bran and middlings. If this would reduce tbe price of meat on our tables we might feel like congratulating the farmer, but it won't, and hence we cannot but s-ympa- tbise with the overstocked merchant.
