Rt.cK Island, 111., Oct. 12 Editor
Ai5ts: Havinr been requested to
publish. a statement of the work that
has been done at the hospital since
the establishment of the institution
in Rock Island, we hereby bepin by
publicly expressing our sincere
thanks to the many and ienerous
benefactors who have aided us to ac
complish in so short a time the work
of relicvinjj so much sufferir.!.
First, we thank in a special man
ner the attending physicians who
have so faithfully discharged their
duties towards the sick, and the in
terest they have shown for the wel
fare of the hospital. We also thank
the pood ladies who collected the
means of helpinp us to have the tele
phone and sewinp machine, as well
is those who evcrv week supply us
with meat, fish, fruit, etc.. although
it is not suflicient to su pply I he needs
I the house. Nevertheless it is
most pratetitlly accepted, and we
trust that they may feel able to con
tinue their charity in the future. On
April 1 we were piven jiosscssiou of
this place which we had purchased
for the sum of $l..ri and in order to
be able to make the tirst tiavnient on
lid propcrtv we were then obliped
to appeal to the charity of the citi
zens of Rock Island and Molinc. who
then kindly responded to our wants,
for which we return our sincere
thanks. owinp to the linaneial
embarrassment of this vcar wc have
failed to accomplish all that mipht
be expected. Obstacles and difficul
ties are never wantinp in the bein
ninp of such an enterprise. Trustinp
still in the same Divine I'rov idence
that has been so watchful over us in
the past, we shall continue with re
newed confidence, courage and zeal
for t he future successor theinstitn
tion. Wc are therefore no less
thankful to each and every one who
have in anv wav assNted us with do
nations in the line of dry poods,
furniture, proccrics. vopetables. soap,
etc., even the least article is useful,
and wu trust that in future the pood
people will not forget the preat and
manv needs of St. Anthony's hospi
tal. Any old tothinp wili be useful
and prstefully accepted, as there are
those' sick poor admitted who are
destitute of clothinp, which has to
be provided by the sisters. In con

I tad SIiom inc for Moth.
Last evening at the Manhattan
club rooms Charles Moth, the St.
Paul wrestler, met John Voss, a local
student of --Farmer" Burns. The
conditions of the match were that
Moth was to throw Voss six times in
one hour for s25 a side and one-half
the rate receipts. At i o'clock Jack
Carter, an Iowa wrestler, gave an
excellent exhibition of Indian club
swininp. Then the event of the
evening was announced, much to the
satisfaction of the crowd. Burns en
tered the ring with Voss, and Tom
Cox- with Moth. Burns introduced
both men: then Carter was chosen
referee and Cox official time keeper.
At 9:10. time was called and the
match bejan. At the end of live
minutes Moth was as near throwing
the "wonder"1 as when they started.
Moth seemed to pursue the same tac
tics all through the match, and when
he did eret his man u pon the floor was
at a loss to 1. now W hat to do with
him. Thus it was for one whole
hour, Moth, instead of throwing him
six times, failing to throw him once.
Immediately after the match. Moth
stepped forward and said: "I just
heard some gentleman in the audi
ence make the remark that I could
not throw this man six times in a
week. Now. I'll bet $50 or 100 that
lean throw him six times in an
hour." He femnd no takers.
