The tax ferrets are getting tneirworU into swing at the court house now, and with the close of November had certi fied to County Treasurer McManus nearly $ 10,000, which he in turn had collected lrom the persons found to owe it to the county. Prior to 181)8 the tax-payer did not have to make affidavit as to the amount of his persona: property, and hence it happens that back taxes are being collected in much greater amount for 1897 than for subsequent years. The taxes collected up to Nov SO were: 1897 $3,312 96 1898 1,319 G4 .1899 1.H24 47 1900.,.. 1,329 99 Total $9,787 0G The December collections will probably be much larger than for any pre viotis month. One LeClaire family of wealth, whose holdings of personal property was recently revealed by court proceedings, is expected to enrich the country treasury with $4,327, a couple of other families are expected to con tribute over $1,000 each, while an East ern insurance company has been no tiffed of its obligation of a little over $1,300.

The members of the Davenport Kindergarten association held a regular meeting at the kindergarten rooms in the old Methodist church, corner of Fourteenth and Brady streets, last evening. They discussed child na ture, and the most beneficial games and amusement for the teaching of the young. A few weeks ago the Kindergarten association transformed its private school Into a public one, which now has an attendance of 33 pupils. The kindergarten is now practically a free one as only the nominal charge of 5 cents a week for materials is charged each pupil. At the meeting last evening H. E. Downer gave an interesting account of an invention of his in the form of a playground game." Refreshments were served during the evening. The meeting proved Instructive as well as socially enjoyable, since each member present was requested to give his or her views on the purpose or benefit of a kindergarten. A portion of the interesting views expressed follow: "I believe in kindergartens because the foundation for good citizenship is laid there. Present education alms at training children to become good citizens. "Because I believe in a full all- rounded development of the child." "To develop the mental, spiritual and physical welfare of the little one." "Because the kindergarten prepares the child for fulfilling his individual part in the great whole of life; helps him to find his place In God's great plan, and makes him happy in lend ing himself to those irresistible laws that lead to the good of all." "Because from a physical standpoint children from the age of 3 to 5 years are not able to endure the long hours which the graded system requires, and because the kindergarten system provides for a complete change in rest and motion." "Because it is th,e first duty of grown people to make children happy. This they can do through the kindergarten." "Because it is a garden for children not a box for children." "Kindergartens are a wonderful help to mothers. Children soon learn to help and entertain themselves In such a hnppy way." "Because the children have in play what they will have in earnest later on. 'Because it matics better fathers and mothers better homes and consequently better citizens. " "Because the child has a chance to grow in this child garten. The sleeping thoughts grow and develop and he learns to understand wonderfully the world about iiim. There is no reason why we shouU not believe there is much in its favor." "I believe in kindergartens because it' teaches tho child to nee, hear am: think for himself, and brings him in contact with other children." THE PEN' IN SIGHT. The three bad men in Cedar Rapids, one of whom is Albert Ray, who went to the penitentiary from here a few years ago for attempting to burglarize the C. A. Ficke residence, are plainly up against it. Two of them, George Howard and Ed Mumford. wore found irniltv Saturday of assault with intent to murder, and Monday another jury found them guilty oi the same crime, on another count, and a third jury convicted them of assault with intent to rob. They have another con viction on the latter charge coming to them today, and on the four cases win r.nrtainlv trot a mml lone term ill the penitentiary. Ray, who turned state s evidence, will probably pieai. guilty to a charge or two. and go up lor a shorter term. He is looked up on as the shrewdest and worst crimi nal of the three. Emil C. Wiese. undertaker, succes sor to II. Nissen, 420 W. 2nd St. A QUESTION OF SPENDING. The Moline dairymen are zealously looking after the public health of their city. Their association met Monday evening and a committee was appointed to confer with the Retail Merchants' association, "to learn," said the secretary alter the meeting, "whether they are in favor of upholding the local dairymen who spend between $75.0iio and $100,000 annually or favor the Tri-City Bottled Milk & Butter Co., who at the most wont spend $20,000 annually."

Pugh in Chicago Making Purchases of Machinery Plans of the Company Now Completing Its Sample Auto'. At least one of the many rumors about automobile manufacturing in Davenport has come to a head. Wm, J. Pugh, the inventor of the Pugh automobile, is now in Chicago making purchases of machinery for the manufacture of his automobile at the Pugh & Bofinger establishment on West Third street. Two machines, a steel planer and a 22-inch swing lathe arrived in the city today. They re pre sent quite an investment. Other pieces of machinery, among which might be mentioned two drill presses, are expected to arrive In the city within the next few days. The planer of which mention was made came from the plant of the Dawsdn & Goodwin Manufacturing company of Chicago. It will be used for shap ing medal, cutting shafts, key seats, etc. The lathe which is 12 feet long. will cut in a radius of 41 Inches. It is stated as the intention oi Messrs Pugh &. Bofinger to manufac ture automobiles on a small scale at their establishment for a time, prob ably for a year. They are of the opinion that after they manufacture a number of automobiles and place them on the market they will be in a position to solicit the necessary cap ital for the establishment of a large automobile factory in Davenport. The Pugh automobile is now prac-tially completed. The finishing touch es will lie placed upon it in the near future and it is expected that it win be demonstrating its ability as a street traveler before the close of winter or at least by spring. The gnso-line vapor, with which it is to be run, has been tested a number of time, and found to work to perfection, k runs without making the least noise. During the past few days Mr. Pugh has received a patent on an automatic air pump for pumping air into the gasoline tank oT o steam automobile. It. is said that the new pump has great merit.

An innovation that would rob traveling on the railways of one of its striking features is in sight if the white waiters, members of unions in several of the big railroad centers of the country, succeed in the general light they are preparing to make on the employment of negro waiters in dining cars. The plan, which lias been worked on for some time, is to unionize every branch of hotel and restaurant labor and to admit bartenders to membership. Prominent members of tho Hotel Men's association have promised to help in the crusade. The principal objection to the negroes on the part of the whites Is that the former, it is alleged, are always willing to work for lower wages. On many of the heavily patronized routes of the country negroes, it is said, work for almost nothing, relying almost entirely upon "tips" for their services. White men demand higher wages, refusing to force their remuneration from patrons. What is true of the negro in dining cars Is said to be true of them In sleepers, but for the latter positions the whites are making no claims. In speaking of the question the general passenger agent of a big Chicago road which employs white waiters in its diners said: "North of the Ohio river white waiters are preferable to negroes. There are many reasons for this. In the first place patrons of our dining cars dislike impudent servants. The average negro Is insolent unless he is 'tipped,' and 'tipped' liberally. "The negro will usually work for less wages than the white waiter and depend more upon charity. Under such a condition he will have his 'tip' by lair means or foul. In districts, principally in the South, where the bjack man is understood, or rather where he understands the white man, be Is the ideal servant. But up here the white man has spoiled the negro. "Since we began to employ whites In our diners we receive I'ewereomplaints about the service. We pay the white man higher wages, and if a patron fails to 'tip' the white waiter few Insults, construed or direct, are recorded. Under the old system we received more complaints about the actions of waiters who had not been 'tipped' than from any other source. Another reason for the change is the superior cleanliness of the white man." During the past few years whites have supplanted negroes in dining cars of many of the larger systems of the country. Among the lines that now employ white waiters in diners exclusively are the Great Northern, Great Western, Lake Shore and Lackawanna. Most of the higher class hotels in the North and many of those in the Sooth have also shifted from black to white waiters. Had a Good Time. A. J. Snell wanted to attend a party, but was afraid to do so on account of pains in his stomach, which he feared would grow worse. He says, "i was telling my troubles to a lady friend, who said: 'Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy will put you In condition for the party.' I bought a bottle and take pleasure in stating that two doses cured me and enabled me to have a good time at the party." Mr. Snell Is a resident of Summer Hill, N. Y. This remedy is for sale by druggists. A SMALL TAX SALE. Scott county people are paying their taxes tli is year.

OASToniA, Bean the l!n K'"J U Have Hmys Btrarjl S.gaatur j SO WRITES SPECULATIVE DOCTOR TO HIS LANDLORD. Had Rented Offices in the Winecke Building But a Little Business on the Chicago Board of Trade Left Him Flattened Out. A plunge on the Chicago board of trade lias apparently proved the financial undoing of a Davenporter. Dr. J. Livingston Wilgus of this city has written a letter, post-marked St. Paul, to W. F. Winecke, stating that be had just "busted up" on a deal on the Chicago board. This announcement had a certain interest for Mr. Winecke, as the latter had rented rooms, one. two aud three of his new building on Brady street, to the physician. The question which come up In Squire Altman's court this morning was how Mr. Winecke could protect himself in the deal with the doctor. The rooms had been leased for a period of one year. It appears that the "busting up" process occurred early last week. This Is shown by the fact, that Dr. Wilgus, on last Wednesday had his furniture removed from his Davenport borne and also that bis family vacated the place. The doctor, however, did not disturb bis olllce furnishings and medical library in the Winecke building. These may be attached for what they are worth. George E. Hubbell is the attorney for Mr. Winecke and it is expected that a compromise will be reached between his client and Dr. Wilgus and that the whole; matter will lie amicably settled. The doctor had a little bard luck, but it is not asserted that lie has shown any disposition to get the better of bis Davenport landlord or friends. C.
