A IterkiriM Irivcr.
A man named St. John, in charge
of one of Updike & Nichols' express
wagons, drove up Second avenue at
a few minutes before noon today w ith
a load of trunks on. and his horse on
a gallop. Between Eighteenth and
Nineteenth streets everal vehicles
were narrowly escaped by the reck
less driver, and at the last named
street the wagon struck the hind
wheels of E. G. Fracr's buggy, in
which was seated Harry Mckown,
Mr. Fraer's bookkeeper," waiting for
a bridge horse car to clear the street.
The buggy was completely capsized
and Mr. McKown escaped injury by
leaping out. Mr. Eraser's horse
took fright, and with the buggy at
tached, ran down Nineteenth toward
First avenue and at the end of the
of the Fries block broke away from
the buggy and dashed into the alley,
where it was caught. The animal
was cut somewhat about the lower
portions of the legs, but not serious
ly injured, though it was frightened
to a pitiful degree.
The express wagon driver who
caused the mischief drove uncon
cernedly up Second avenue, not so
much as turning to note the dam
ages. He w ill probably bo arrested
for reckless driving.

The lirst place picked by the bur
glars was the South Park grocery
store. Entrance was efneted by
cutting the glass in the door with a
diamond, taking it out of place and
reaching in and opening the night
latch. After getting inside, the men
attempted to open the safe, but
failed. The cash register drawer

much for the intruders. A small
money drawer under the register was
next attacked, and here they found

of the case was the monogram,
"Thco." This, of course, was taken,
and then the men looked to their
stomachs cakes, etc., disappeared
quickly, and a general good meal was
indulged in. Tobacct anil cigars fol
lowed and the ruidm'gkt marauders
walked across the street to the resi
dence of George Rohwedder, and after
eating custard pie and cold potatoes,
which they found in the refrigerator,
until their appetites were appeased,
they went to work. Gaining en

burglars passed through a room in
which several members of the fam

Going four blocks north, the bur
glars entered the residence of John
Lane, on Eleventh avenue and Thii-

made through a window, and a jewel
case, lying on the bureau, taken. In
the case was an ametbvst rinjr, val

other rings to the value of $25. Mr.
Lane s clothes were taken outside and

Mineral water, when properly and
scientifically prepared for public use,
is always a refreshing and healthy
oeverage, especially during the
warmer months of the summer sea
son. Realizing this, Messrs. Carse &
Ohlweiler have for a number of years
maue a specially or the mineral
water prepared by them. This water
is taken in the lirst -place from the
Black JIawk spring exclusively,
which in the lirst place repeated
chemical analysis has shown to be
absolutely pure. The same mav be
also said" of the ingredients used
the linest fruit flavors, import
ed Jamaica ginger, etc., being em
ployed. The new carbn:itor invent
ed and perfected by Mr. Carse last
year and exhibited at the World's
fair, is acknowledged to be the very
best in existence, not merely for fa
cilitating extensive ojierations, but
for chargmg the water with gas
more thoroughly than any other, so
that the largest bottles will not lose
their effervescing qualities at the
first uncorking, but retain them to
last glass. No finer, cheaper, more
delicately flavored mineral waters
were ever made than those of Carse
&OUlweiler. As a matter "of fact
thety have no equal anywhere, and
lovers of refreshing, innocent bever
ages should always call for these
goods. Bottles can be kept in a re
