The Muscatine people are evidently al lowing their enthusiasm over the contem plated bridge at that point, by the means of which they hope to get the trade of the farmers In the lower end of Rock Island county, to lead them up to queer and inconsistent ideas. The Journal of that city says that "all the gentlemen composing the Muscatine Bridge company are citizens of Muscatine, most of whom have do interest anywhere else, and all of whom are deeply interested in the pros peritT of the city.

There is an effort being made at Springfield to have a law passed which will require insurance companies to pay the full amount for which a loss is in sured. This will be a severe blow to that class of highway robbers called insurance agents, who travel through the country ana insure property Tor two or three times its value, causing the insured to pay in premiums large amounts of .excess of what they should, and if their prop eriy Durns tbey receive only what the property was actually worth at the time it was burned, probably onethird or one- fourth the amount for which it was insured. We know of a case where one of these wolves received from a poor family twenty-five dollars in premiums lor insuring about forty or fifty dollars worth of household goods for 8 years.
