As stated in the Auui slapt evi-ning1
Rock Island citizens can by giving
the proper encouragement, ring
about the establishment here of a
hospital, such as has been need d for
a long time and similar to the 01 es in
operation in other cities around us.
As previously stated two representa
tives from the mother house of the
Franciscan sisters at Little Vails,
Minn., are in the city for the purpose
of looking over the city ami tsccr
taining just what our citizens will do
in aid of such a project. It mav not
be out of pla'ce here to mention the
gratifying results that have attended

one of the foremost institutions of its
kind in the state With the growth
of Rock Island and Moline, ther is an
increasing need of accommod: tions
for persons who are injured. and the
numerous accidents that occur in fac

makes something ot the kind mi ur
The Plan of Action.
In order to give the public a c carer
understanding of just what the plans
of the sisters are in regard to tin-matter,
an Ait(iis reporter called upon
Sister Mother Mary Francis at the
convent home of the sisters in M.
Mary's parish yesterday afternoon,
and upon inquirv was informed by
the reverend mother that the pat two j
days had been spent in looking over
the place. "We are greatly p eased
with your city and its people.'" she
continued, "and feel that we would
like to establish a hospital here if the
proper encouragement is ottered us.
The location is a tine one and fr ni all
1 ean learn yon are in need of such an
institution, which fact was commun
icated to us by one of your citizens
and has resulted in this visit.'1
"What plan will you pursue in the
establishment of the hospital?" asked
"Our first work," was the reply,
"will he to determine as near ts pos
sible just how far we will be assisted
in the matter, l irst of all. as is
done in other cities, we must have
the assurance that land enough will
be given us in a good location upon
which to erect our buildings. This
being done, we will at once enter
upon the work of erecting the iiistitu-tipn."
''Then vou erect your own build
ings, do you, sister?"
"les, sir, we do; but of coutse ob
tain whatever assistance we can from
charitably disposed persons. The
building will of necessity be started

patients, and then others as they be
come necessary, ltie tjuililinrs win
be modeled after our mother home

as they are lounu necessary.
Ready to Begin at Once.
"Are vou readv to begin operations
at once?" was asked.
"Wo are ready and even anxious, "
was the rcplv. "If the assurance can
be given us at once that a suitable
site will be furnished, we will imme
diately rent a house and furnish it to
accommodate a few patients p( nding
the construction ot our tirst huikting.
Vou will of course understand that
our plan is the same as pursued by
other institutions of a similar char
acter to charge for all patients who
are able to pav, but those wh ) have
ho money we take in irrespective of
color or creed. the sisters nae
already been in consultation with an
architect, and from all appearances
are thoroughly in earnest and will
make it a success if it is possible.
They will be glad to meet anyone in
terested in the matter and all who
mav feel inclined are invited to call
at St. Mary's convent home where
they are staving.

Not Always What They Seem.
Men. like things, are not always
what they seem, and this fact was
very strongly impressed upon a
young liveryman in the central por
tion of the city a day or two ago. For
some time past he has had a pair of
C-oz. gloves in his place of business,
and being quite an expounder of the
manly art he had given nearly all his
friends a little go. A particular
friend, however, brought down a sec
ond friend from Moline with the re
sult that when a physician, who
keeps his horse at the barn, called, he
found the young liveryman in bed up
stairs, and upon entering the room,
was greeted with "Hello, Doc, is that
you? I know your voice, but I can't
see you." It is perhaps unnecessary
to state that he doesn't do a thing
but tell just how it all came about.

John II tialrdner and Miss Caroline F.
iiehtler I'nlted In Marriage.
At . the residence of the bride's
mother, Mrs. William Geisler, 1816
Second avenue, at 7 o'clock last even
ing, occurred the marriage of Miss
Caroline F. Geisler to John F. Gaird
ner. Rev. C. A. Mennicke, of the Ger
man Lutheran church, officiating.
The bride was attired in a beautiful
wedding costume of heliotrope silk
trimmed in velvet, with bridal veil,
and carried orange blossoms. She
was attended by the Misses Maggie
Ohlweiler and Esther Ransom, the
groom being attended by Henry Geis
ler, brother of the bride, and Richard
Wilson, of Coal Valley. There was
some time spent in congratula
tions, after which the company
repaired to the dining room where
an elaborate spread prepared by MrsJ
Herkert was served and enjoyed.
The happy couple were the recipients
of many handsome tokens of esteems
and left today for Pueblo, Col., where
the groom is a telegraph operator
and where they will make their
future home. The bride who is well
known has many friends who will
wish them much joy and prosperity.
In view of the steady growth of
the circulation of the The Akgis and,
realizing the fact that to the average
subscriber it is more satisfactory to
have the subscriptions paid promptly
and at regular intervals, our collector
will hereafter visit each subscriber
eery month, and to the end that the
department may be conducted as sys
tematically as possible and as satis
factory to all concerned as may be,
our patrons, it is hoped, will be pre
pared to receive the collector when
he conies. At such times, too, any
complaints should be made as to the
manner of serving the paper,' while it
is desirous that at any time causes of
complaint be promptly reported. The
carriers are required to deliver the
paper neatly and as far as possible in
conformity with the wishes of the
subscribers. They are also provided
with whistles anil enjoined to blow
them when at each house where a pa
per is left, and failure of any of these
requisites should be immediately re
ported. The carrier will then be pro
vided with a receipt, which the sub
scriber will confer a favor by signing,
showing that the complaint has been
remedied. Carriers will be compelled
to comply with these regulations and
the places of those who fail to will be
filled by others.
