Saadenly Mommoii iit ihl Jlornlaf.
Conductor Fred E. Hand, of the C, B.
& Q., expired suddenly at his home, 107
Thirteenth street, at 4:15 this morning,
of lung troubles, with which he had been
a sufferer for some time. He brought in
his train last night sb usual, Mrs. Rand
accompanying him, tavinsr, as she bad
frequently done of lue, and since her
husband been ailing, gone 'up in the
morning and spent the day with her par
eats at Denrock. App .rently Mr. Rand
was not worse than usual last night and
be retired in good spirits. This morning
at 4 o'clock he alarmel his wife saying
that he was suffering intensely. She im
mediately discovered tiat a hemorrhage
had taken plase and that her husband
was dying. She did til possible to re
lieve him, but It was useless and in fif
teen minutes be bad pissed beyond reach
of human devotion an 1 skill.
Mr. Rand was born in Canada, July
26, 1858. His first experience in rail
roading was at Troy, New York, where
he served a number of years, as locomo
tive fireman, when ha entered the em
ploy of ihe C, B. & Q . as brakeman on

years later he was promoted to freight
train conductor, and fix years ago he was
given a passenger train. For three years
he had been on the Rc ck Inland and St
Louis division, running between Rock
Island and Savanna, until a year since

The Des Moines Remitter of the 2d in
stant, contains the following, relative to
the former resident of this county, Mrs.
J. L. Smith, mention of whose death was
made in tbe Aroos a few days since:
Tbe funeral of Mrs. John L. Smith yes
terday was attended bra large concourse
of people, with whom the feeling of grief
at the departure of tbe estimable old lady
was deep and effecting. Many there
were to tell in subdued tones of ber kind
ness, of her gentle ways, of how her
home was an attractive place of resort foi
both old and young, and of how much
she came to be loved by all who were
privileged to know ter. The exeroises
were feelingly conduced by Rev. H. L.
Stetson and Rev. J. A Nash, the present
and former pastors of the First Baptist
church, for thirty-five years the spiritual
home of the departed lady. Mr. Nash
was especially moved, as he told of the
fact that, tbirty-eight years ago. while on
his way to Des Moine. he spent Sunday
at Rock Island. 111., where be at
tended a Baptist church, and there
met this lady acd her husband,
then residents of that city. They
cordially invited bim to their residence,
where he took dinner: and where an ac
quaintance began, wtich was strength
ened upon the removal to this city a few
years later, of the excellent couple, and
which lasted till now 'joth husband and
wife had gone to the better land. The
speaker alluded touch ingly to tbe gradual
wasting away of the isible band of old
settlers, saying that of the 500 people
who inhabited Des Moines when Mr. and
Mrs. Smith came here he could count
those still with us on his fineers. Tbe
pall hearers, Messrs. S. Galbraith, F.
R. Laird, E. R: Clapp. Judge Given,
Judge Mitchell and J. S. Lewis, were
selected by Mrs. Smitii, three of them be
log among the very early settlers. The
floral tributes were remarkable in both
number and quality, and presented a
wonaeriuiiy ueautiru! appearance evi
dencing as they did the high regard in
which tbb deceased wes held by all who
were privileged to know her. The re
mains were deposited in the vault of Mr.
Hiram Hatch, there to remain until the
spring.

EARLY DAY EXPERIENCES.
The rtrsit iBallroad and the Manner
la Whteh lta Adveat u Celebrated
A Jelly Trip lp the threat River.
Correspondence of the Argus:
Rock Island. March 5. In 1854 the
Chicago & Rock Island railroad reached
this place, this road being the first to
approach the Mississippi river although
the Galena & Chicago had the atart of
some two or three years being built
only to Freeport, firty miles east of Ga
lena. Thif portion of the road between
Galena and Freeport, after about two
years delay, was sold out to the Illinois
Central, to be used as a part of their
western branch to the Mississippi river.
The directors of the Galena & Chicago
line made a great mistake in doing so, but
they were afraid to encounter the rough
bills between Galena and Series Mound,
only twenty miles. President Farnam
of tbe Rock Island road, as soon as it
was finished, sent out invitations to some
three or four hundred representative
men, living in the eastern states, to take
a free ride to the Mississippi and thence
to St. Panl. The directors of the Ga
lena & St- Paul Packet company entered
heartily into the arrangement and placed
five of their magnificent steamers at the
disposal of their eastern guests board
and transportation free for the whe'e
trip. An invitation was extended to a
limited number to join the excursionists
along the river myself among the rest.
It was one of the largest and best excur
sions ever organized on the great river.
Our eastern guests were- filled with
wonder and admiration at tbe beautiful
and varied scenery that they passed as
they steamed up the river. The scenery
in wild, rugged grandeur, increasing from
day today. Expressions like this were
often head: "This beats the Hudson;"
or "the storied Rhine cannot compare
with this." After spending a whole day
at St. Paul and vicinity visiting, noting
the intense activity and enterprise there
and at Minneapolis, the excursionist
turned their faces down stream. Threo
of the swiftest of the steamers were
placed at the disposal of the railroad
guests, with orders to make no Undines
except for wood. The ttip down to Rock
Island was made in twenty-six hours if
my recollection is right. The stage of
water was high. The time was only dou
ble that of the present railroad time.
In those early days I often made trips
up tbe river sometimes on business and
often for pleasure. On my second trip
in 1848, at the invitation of Lieut. Hall
and his wife, intimate friends of ours, we
made them a visit at Fort Snelling.
Lieut. Hall was in command at tbe time.
The fort was the only place at which
we could stop then. While there,
Mrs. Hall, my wife and myself with the
two little girls belonging to each, took
the only buggy in that section and start
ed for Lake Carolina, a beautiful sheet of
water about four miles from the fort.
On our way we stopped at the Minnehaha
Falls, made famous by Longfellow in his
"Hiawatha." as the home of old "Nako
mia" and of "Lmicrhin7 Water wu
descended rugged steps into the wild
gorge that opens below the falls.
W bile looking at the beautiful sil
ver sheet and the ruin Unw sin niniT
through to the west, Mrs. Hall bantered
mo to go arouna unaer tbe shelving rock
that overhangs the falls; my wife would
not go and objected Ktmncrlv tn ih Han.
gerous trip, but said if we would go, she
wouiu iaae care or tue children. By
picking our wav carefnllv over ih alin.
pery rocks and getting somewhat wet
wuu iue spray, we reached tbe other side.
Mrs. 11. did not wish to taka the rnturn
trip in the same way. My wife hearing
ber, said to me, "take Mrs. H. on your
back and bring her arms t.h ainum "
I did so, but found it a difficult job at the
water was very swirt and full of small
boulders, but I deDosited mv fair tiurrinn
safely on the other shore. We then went
out to the lake and sitting down on tLe
grassy margin, took our lunch- I then
got out my fishing tackle and wading out
over tbe gravely bottom, aoon bagged a
uue Diui oass. ancg out still lurther
into four feet of water and trvlna mv
luck again, I looked into my creil and
siw the fine bass just swimming out and
disappearing, ibis ended my bass fish
ing for that day, and ever since. When I
came back I found the little ones busy
picking the wild strawberries, their faces
ana nanas a iieauurul crimson. On our
trip we passed a number of Sioux In
dians. We had a very pleasant visit with
onr friends.
There were then I think, two compan
ies of soldiers quartered there, and every
thing about the fort was keDt In neat.
beautiful order. Capt. Eastman, witb
Whom we were well acquainted, was then
the commandant, but was absent down
the river. S. W. McM.

Slew Advertisements.
In another part of the Argus can be
found the advertisement of Robt. Krause,
the clothier of Davenport, who is well
known to the public for his equvre busi
ness methods. He has a large force of
polite assistants, prominent ; among
which is Mr. P. Karlowa, the gentleman
ly advertising manager. Mr. Erause is
one of the oldest and most reliable mer
chants of Davenport, who bas always
conducted his business on the one price
system. A mere child can buy goods
there as cheap at a grown person.
Fer Cet lector.
Elsewhere Mr. Peter Frey formally
announces himself as a candidate for the
office of township collector, subject to
the decision of tbe approaching demo
cratic city-township convention. Mr.
Frey la one of tbe most respected busi
ness men in the city, is an out and out
democrat, and his nomination would be
equivalent to an election. .
t. r atneks Bail.
Tbe twentieth annual ball of the St.
Patrick's society, ot this city, will be held
at 'Armory hall this evening, March
general invitation is extended.
The Xew Kellxteae Ed i Ace
Mr. D. S. Schureman, the architect
and superintendent of construction of
tbe new First M. E. Church, has suc
ceeded in making terms with Mr. Bally
Davenport for rock by which the church
will save $5,000 in the cost of material,
the arrangement being one that shows
generosity on the part of Mr. Schureman,
as well as Mr. Davenport. The condi
tions are that Mr. Schureman procure
from Mr. Davenport 150 yards of lime
stone at $1; tOO yards of broken ash
lar at $3.60; 300 yards ot rock for cut
stone at $8. The saving is on tbe bro
ken ashar and cut stone, the former
bringing $10 per yard on the market, and
the latter $14 on the market. In the
negotiations Mr. Davenport proposed to
Mr. Schureman that if he would give him
300 hours of his experience in the quarry
at $1 per hour, be would make a reduc
tion to tbe church of $1 per yard on the
cut stone, or put it down at $5. Mr. S.
accepted the proposition and consequent
ly donates $300 in labor to the church.
The Hose' Proopeets.
The postofflce aspirants who did not
witness the inauguration are beginning
already to look anxiously for Boss Wells'
return. He is due most any day now.
It comes from a reliable source the boss
had a comfortable roost on a $10 limb of
a tree just opposite the capitol, and that
he was one of the first to congratulate
the new president, reminding bim that
Rock Island county gave him a majority
and plurality, and that he (Boss) was
chairman of tbe county committee. The
boss sailed high while in Washington, and
equalized things by taking his "sleeping
car accommodations" witb him.
