BOTH, tJa;kn& Hurefg office, One of the most important acts of the Rock Island Citizens' Improyement assos ciation at its last meeting was tbe fixing as the spe cial object of discussion before tbe next meeting of tbe association the improvement of a thoroughfare between Rock Island and Moline, a through ave nue for travel apart from those traversed by street cars or closely paralleling the rifrht of ways of steam engines. That guch an avenue is needed is conceded by both cities, the idea in fact that it should be provided being first presented by reDresentative citizens of Moline at tbe time of the consolidation meetings two years ago. Tbe question now is which avenue I shall be improved. Sixth or Seventh? "Why don't you talk Sixth avenue.' said an ex-alderman in talking on the project with an Argus reporter the other day. "That ould only require the op ening of a few blocks and then you have ber right through." "Seventh avenne ought to be opened and that pretty soon," said another citi zen who rides about a good deal, this morning. "I have reference to that part of it between Thirtieth and Thirty-eighth. Beyond Thirtieth street itis practically im passable, and if it is not improved Jaoon, we will have no way of driving belweeen tbe two cities while Moline avenue is torn up for paving east of Twe nty-sixth street." There are various plans on foot for the putting in of this missing link between tbe two cities. Seventh avenue seems to offer the best solution of the difficulty, and there are numerous opinions as to bow best this can be done. One is to put it in temporary condition east of Thir tieth, and then prepare it for boulevard ing, and pessibly paving with a single course ot bncK next year, the most pop ular idea being to boulevard it on either si.le as far as Tbirty-eigbth and boulevard it in tbe center or car track space from that street east. In view of tbe rapidly approaching need of a new avenue to Moline, perhaps it might be well that action be taken sooner tban was originally intended. The Trl City Linen. A special dispatch from Dayenport to tJdaj's Chicago Tribune formally an nnunces the property and lines of the Davenport & Rock Island railway for sale, thus verifying the announcement first published in The Abgus that there was a possibility of the lines being sold The Tribune's correspondent announces that Mr. Louderback's reason for selling out is that the council has not treated him right. This is undoubtedly true as to Davenport, but it most em phatically is not so as to Rock Island, as the small opposition which has been shown to him in the council here has no weight whatever either with the remain der of tbe aldermen or the community, wherein the kindlest feelings exist toward the company for its public spirit and liberal nolicy toward all the three cities. It is equally true that the best franchises the company owns are the lines on this side of the river, and tbe bridge line. Rock Island is not to blame for the narrow minded, short-sighted dispo sition of tbe South Rock Island road commissioners, and no where is their con duct more generally condemned than in Rock Island, a city which welcomes out side capital, and in which the element which seeks to stand in the city's way by antagonizing public enterprises, such as our street railway system, is happily in a hopeless miaority. Suck has so far been tbe case In Rock Island and such let us hope it will continue to be. It would be worth thousands of dollars to this community not to have these lines sold either to local or outside capitalists. It is a damaging blow that the company should feel itself obliged to place Its property on the market, and any who have, by word or act, attempted to dis courage or burden tbe company have simply struck more at the city in which they live than at the company, which has helped it more than they. Heary County' Largest Church. "The largest church in Henry county," says the Geneseo News, ' is in the small est town in the county. It is a Swedish Lutheran church at Andover. It is by far the largest and wealthiest church. It has an organ that cost f 2,500. By the way, the first church of this denomina tion in Andover was built by Jennie Lind, when Barnum had her in this country 40 years ago. Jenny was a Swede and a very devout member of tbe Swedish Lutheran church. She passed through this country and found at An dover a poor and struggling organization. Tbe noble-beartedi woman built a church for this people. It is made of grout and is still standing. Now the church is amply able to take care of itself; but it always remembers and loves sweet Jen ny Lind."

Hehnitger 1i Mai The Mute Objected, Tea. General Superintendent Henry Schnit- ger, of tbe Davenport & Rock Island railway company, parted company yes terday with associations of many years' standing. Old Joe Hooker, a mule which has figured conspicuously iu the annals of street car locomotion in Davenport for over a quarter ot a century, was disposed of, along with the other stock made useless by tbe introduction of elec tricity as a motive power. Supt. Scbnitger, in whose employ old Joe h ad been for all these years, first on the old Third street line over there, wheniichnit- ger was superintendent and lessee of it, heaved a big sigh when he saw the last of the beast, ugly as he was in appearance and disposition, for Schnitger is a great man for sticking to old associations. Nevertheless, however, Henry realized it was for the best that it should be so, and sent Joe of! with his best wishes that his future might be cast in pleasant places. What followed the Democrat can best tell: Tbe event of the dav was the sale of eld Joe Hooker. Joe Hooker is a mule who settied in Davenport some Si years ago, and who has been, for alt these years, inseparably connected with the Third street car lice. He has grown up with it, from youth to old age. and the best years of his life have been spent in its service, lie has trave.ed in that time a distance sufficient to girdle the earth sev eral times, and he has taken in fares enough to build a brick block five stories high. He has not been a pleasant mule to do business with, especially along toward the latter end. He has seemed to grow more morose and crabbed as he felt his ape stealing on, and has looked with increasing suspicion on mankind and its specious efforts to conciliate him. He has always enjoyed a reach of hoof that made him feared and reerectsd, if not beloved, and this special feature he dis- plavcd yesterday afternoon in a manner that won for him fresh laurels. Tbe man who bought him for that thought he had a bargain and rushed into the otlice at Lorton Bros, to report tbe sale to Treasurer Ilulbert of the company. He led Fighting Joe Hooker behind, innocently supposing Joe would be awed into submission. In stead ( i that there was a sudden scatter ment of the crowd, and the tatoo of i pair of hard hoofs beating and battering at everything within a rod. TLe treas urer fl-d through a hole so small it wouldn't have let him out of jail if he had been in. the new purchaser disap peared, and the office was left in tbe old hero's possession. A few minutes later the purchaser had seen enough of Old Joe and sold him to another equally con riding man, who in turn soon got enough of his bargain and sold him again to an other man for half a dollar. The old fellow refused to leave the road on which he had spent a lifetime, but finally had to yield. It is to be hoped that he may not be allowed to suner or die on, tbe com' mons. lie has earned a pension .1 he is a chronic kicker. Ti.e Horrid Kodak. Detective Devereau claims that he has photographs of every person with whom he played poker during his professional visit here. Not only this, but he informs a Moline Republican-Journal man that be had views of the tables and tbe group of gamblers that surrounded tbem. He claims to have even caught the self-satisfied expression of tbe lucky ones who were showing down "full houses" and fours, as well as the woe begone look of those who were dropping their week's wages as fast as they could shell out. This he claims to have accomplished by means of a button hole detective camera. He says these photographs will be intro duced as evidence at tbe proper time if tbey are needed to corroborate hts testimony. Klver Itiplem. The St. Paul passed down today. The Pittsburg went up today. Tbe Sidney will be down on Monday. The Mary Morton is expected up Sun day.

The Yerne Swain and elegant new barge will make an excursion from Clin ton to Rock Island and Davenport next Sunday. Tbe Yerne Swain is not only a quiet and smooth running boat, bnt it moves over the water about as fast as any boat on tbe nver. The Verne Swain took a large party of ladies and gentlemen from this city on ber down trip yesterday morning, among whom were Mr. and Mrs. Story Keith, Mr. ana Airs, ruiman, nr. ana Mrs. William Smith and Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Bather and family. The party visited Black Hawk tower and the government island, returning on the Verne in the eve ning. Tbey report a pleasant and en joyable trip. Clinton Age. Police faint. C.

Dsafneta Can't bs Cared by local applications, as tbey cannot reach the diceased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condi tion of the mucous lining of tbe Eustach ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed deafness is the result, and unless tha im ftammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition. hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of 10 are caused by catarrh. which is nothing but an inflamed condii tion of tbe mucous surface. We will give 100 for any case of deafness (caused by catarib) that we can not cure by taking Hall's Catarrh cure. Send for circulars, free F.J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, O. Sold by drugeists. 75c.
