JPrornsm C<m*»st«>di nf sr<j*tc, Roti.t*' and Despite the bad night and the fact that so many things going on in the city, there waa a good audience out to heat the program rendered for the benefit of tbe Congregational church ehoir. Although some of the promised pieces were hot rendered, owing to the failure of the participants to be present, the program was sufficiently long. The program opened with an organ voluntary by Miss Nellie Nirns, followed by an anthem bythe choir. The church can be congratulated upon its good choir. After a prayer by the pastor, Rev. H. A. Kern, the male quartette from the choir sang a sacred song very nicelyi This quartette is composed of Messrs. E. R. Ninas, E. R. Hopkins, Charles Sheldon and Alex Lyle. Mr. Sheldon sang the solo obligate. . .'•... The solo by Miss Mayme McAllister was a pretty song well sung,"The Song My Mother Used to Sing." A trio by Misses Nettie Lyon.Mame McAllister, and Mrs. Winnie Coward, was then sung which called forth much commendation, The reading by Hermon Long was a selection from Dombey & Son, by Charles Dickens. It was good of course for Mr, Long seems especially adapted for tbe rendering of Dickens' work. He chose for his reading, The Birth of the Son and the Death of Mrs. Dombey, He responded to an encore. It Is a pleasure to the Rock Falls people to listen to the'singing of Mrs, E. F. Ebersofe, of. Sterling. The next number was a solo by that lady. It is needless to "E ay thati it"was"pretty and rendered la her usual manner. - .Thenext waa a reading by Miss Flora Kirk, now of Sterling. It baa been a year or more since Miss Kirk left Rock Falls and she was greeted with cheers. She responded to an encore. Miss Kirk Is a good speaker.

This is one of the songs destined to live long. Mrs'. Millie Arey was organist. After a recitation by L. L. Emmons Jr., Mrs. Ebersole sang another one of her Impressionable songs,greatly pleasing the audience. • . The reading by Mrs. Sadie Atkins in costume was irresistibly funny; "Mrs. Bunker's City Shoppirig." "The Whistling Regiment," by Mrs. Lulu Davis, was a fine thing and well rendered. Mrs, Dayis is a new comer to the town. She showed plainly tha she is an elocutionist of more than ordinary abilities. She was encored. About 910 was netted to the committee to expend for choir supplies. THE BATCHELLER WORKS. A Walk Through thl» Plant Finds Busy '; Workmen. Tbe reporter took a stroll through the manufacturing establishment of Batcheller & Son Friday afternoon and he, found the workmen busy at work on ordered goods. In a talk with the senior proprietor, it was learned that he has men at work on tbe old Batcheller band corn planter. There ia quite a sale of that tool in various parts of the states, especially in those states where horse planters cannot be used. Mr. Batcheller, who is the patentee of tbe planter, says he commenced making them for the market thirty-six years ago, and for the last thirty years there has not been a particle of cbaqge made in the planter; he is using some of the same forms today he used then. This can be said of no other tool made, for there is a constant change from year to year on the way of improvement, but on tho Batcheller planter it was a complete tool thirty years ago and so It is today. Many have patented hand planters and placed them on the markets, even at a cheap, er figure than his sold for, but they were not perfect and there are hardly any of them to ,be found exposed for sale. Everybody knows the old Batcheller planter. HOME MISSION MEETING, Annual TiiAnkoffvrinfr \VI1I be Uelil Frl- » day Afternoon. The members of the Home Mission Committee of the .Congregational church will hold their annual thank- offering meeting hr the church next Friday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, at which time all persons interested iu the Home Mission are asked to be present. •-..-,.

Sines Jast New Year's be has given the work to fifty three Sir KnKghti. It Is acknowledged that Valiant Knight Davis has no equal in that capacity. Not a break was made in the whole thing. It was given In an excellent manner. A feature of the conferring of this degree is, that at about 11 o'clock a grand banquet is partaken of. This was served in the Brookfield • block. The spread was a magnificent one and was much commented upon. At the conclusion of the repast.the Daughters of the Globe, of Rock Falls, were given the Globe cheer for the fine banquetjas it was furnished by this order. The following la the menu: Escalloped Oysters Potato Salad | [Baked Beans Bread and Butter Cheese Olives . . Pickles Assorted Cake Fruit ' Ice Cream Jellies • AnjtelFood ' Coffee. The company then repaired to their hall when the balance of the work was conferred. St. Patrick's day scented to be a favorite day for the Rock Falls Garrison, as this is not the first time the degree has been conferred on that day in this city. , The muddy roads and bad rainy weather kept many from coming from other cities, who had calculated to be present, yet there were sixty-eight sat down to the banquet table. After the work was concluded a speech from nearly every one present was made and patriotism was a way up, as this is a v.ery patriotic order. The following Valiant Knights were present from other ^Cltleef W. T. Miller,^ Polo; George Detrick, Dixon; H. L. Brewer, Morrison; Post Martin Palmer, C. L. Rhodes 'and It.

Or'-.'.'. . • •• diuarr CreldB. * K. H. Kadel has some new ' idea "in bicycles which is destined'to revolutionize the bicycle,world. JBe took the STANDARD man to his work room at his residence Thursday evening and showed him some ideas in the bicycle line, which be has been developing*during the past eight months. While the machine is yet crude in some' respects, yet the idea is brought out. and sufficiently to show that he has something entirely new and something that will be of much value. r —~ Hls production is a chainlets bicycle, and one without gears. He has applied for letters patent. The machine Is furnisbed locomotive power by cranks connected to the pedal crank, and these are connected to a small stout cable which goes around a cylinder fastened to the top of the shaft of the front wheel. There is one of these an each side of the bicycle and it is an Ingenious 1 piece of mechanism, yet simpler^ "Another prominent feature is the reverse motion. When the rider becomes tired of pedalling in one way, he can reverse the stroke without stopping the forward, motion of the bicycle and pedal backward at bis will. Scorching becomes an added pleasure when the rider can stop' pedalling at any rate of speed and leave tbe feet on the pedals yet the wheel will continue on, These are very curious pranks for a bicycle to do, yet it can be accomplished; in tbe manner stated and perfectly, well. ~. . To pedal backward and still have the bicycle continue going forward is perhaps the most curious part of the whole thing, : , ACCIDENTAL SHOOTING. Another Cato of "Dldn't»Know the Gun Was Louded." A wall to one of the' rooms of the pretty residence of Fred Youard.south- east of town.bears evidence of a charge of shot, and it will require the aid of a plasterer to repair the damage. Hia young son, Funk, has a shot gun which has been hib pride of late, for he has not owned it but a short time. There Is a small lad, about the size of Frank, wljo ll.ves just across the road at Abe Hendricka'. Friday night he went over to YouBrd's to see this wonderful gun. As soon as he had It In MB nds, boy like, be put it up to his shoulder and pulled the trigger. Of course he dld.not know it waa loaded, but it was, nevertheless, and the charge went past Frank's head and lauded in the wall and ruining a picture banging up on the way also by going through t. ' ., ',. "" There are two things to be learned from it,perhaps three;that guns should never be kept loaded in the house; eecond: never think that a firearm ia not loaded and pull the trigger; third; boys of that age should not have guue at all. <*itf of Rnck Fft'!« Urn rijjM to it« property by Ihp fy*st Main aft*** extension wH&oof. sh»rg*.

Miller, of Chicago, tod C, W* Card, of Aurora, The j^mer of settoft was left to the Division Saperiotea'a.- ent. . • ' . • "•••• .';'. . • :,; These men Jn company with th« City Council and other citizens, viewed tha premleeo and Mr, Judson first wanted $1,000 damages, This was 1 then t»» duced to $500. These were dot accepted by the committee from this Council. Finally Mr. Judson offered the city 8500 If they wdu|d not cross the tracks at all. He was'told that It was cot money that they were after, but a free right of ; way through their property. This was acceded to and the rail road company will also move all their yards and building out of the extended street at an expense of their own. The street will be fifty feet wide. This IB wide enough for a street in this part of the city. . The offer to the city by the company la a magnanimous one .when 16 is con* eidered that the street will run through their properlty to a distance of 700 feet, although part of it rune to an ac- cute angle.. While it is true that Book Falls fur-' nishes the road with a vast ainc/unt of shipping, rail roads do not generally take this into consideration.. With this action of the rail road, it now 'gives ' free passage through all private land with the 'exception of J. M. Golder.who wishes some damage. ' , ANNUAL SCHOOL-CONTEST.

".'• Shop* Closed Early, Water Too High. , Saturday the various bells of the r \ «bops rang and the whistles blew for the same purpose. This was on account,"of the high water. The race wheels were .stopped and all drewa were closed,as the^the. taking.the jwater 1 from the race made the pressure above the. race bridge 'BO great that it was feared the bridge would give away .' '' and this would cause other loss amount- Ing to thousands of dollars. President' Flatt of the Hydraulic Company baa ' had'men at the bulkhead and race night and day, working and watching ' to save the,property.
