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. In a few

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
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

Mr. W. C. Welch Called t Ma Laa
Home -Demise ar K. B. Barber.
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

"Kanrh 10."
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.

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.

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

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.

Lakes and in line with the western curs

On all sides are preparations for Christ

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
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
On the other hand the granger or the

This weather is a friend of his. He
hopes it will continue so. His cattle are
not "eating their heads off' so far this

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

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.
