A heartless Davenport individual
attempted to drown a small dog from
tho ferry dock on that side this
morning, by tossing him into the
river with a stono tied about his
neck. The stone was just heavy
enough to burden the dog and im
pede his progress toward the shore,
and not sutlicient to pull him down
and end his misery speedily. The
little animal was able to paddle
slowly toward the shore and keep
his nose out of the water, but was
fast becoming exhausted when hu
mane people on the dock rescued
him and cut loose the weight. The
canine wagged his tail in grateful
at'know'cdgment of the deed, and
trotted off up town.

THE WILLIAM WINDOM.
Explanation of taw Oelay la Brim (lag: tha
The arrival of the William Win-
dorn has again been delaved. Like
her sister craft, built at the same
place, she seems to be nnfortunate.
The Dubuque Herald gives this rea
son: "The Windom did not get away
yesterday for the reason the process
ot lightening it was not completed,
but was interrupted by the breaking
of a chain. It is proposed to raise
the boat, which draws six feet six
inches of water and weighs 400 tons,
three feet. This will be done by
means of barges 140 feet long, 24
feet wide. 6 feet deep, with ft capac
ity of 450 tons. One of these is
placed on each tide of the cutter.
Two 2-inch holes were boared in the
bottom and they were allowed to set
tle until the water reached the decks.
Then the holes were plugged up.
Six iron cased beams were then laid
across the cutter and extended out
over the barges. (Chains were then
placed under the hull and securely
fastened to the beams. Piling was
then laid on the barges and built np
to the beams. It was then intended
to pump the water out of the barges
and as they arose the cutter would
be raised with them. Yesterday
morning the Artemus Lamb and
Josephine drew up to the craft.
Each inserted a syphon in a barge
and started to pump out the water.
The Windom was raised about a foot
when the forward chain broke. This
chain was a monster affair, its links
beiBg of inch iron, and it seemed
almost impossible for any weight to
break it. It had, however. In audi'
tion to supporting the great weight
of the bow, extending 20 feet beyond
it, also a lot of steam pipes and other
materials to be used in completing
the boat at St. Louis. The breaking
of the chains interrupted operations
and made it nccessarv to sink the
barge and begin all over again
Further delay will be occasioned for
the reason a chain was not obtain'
able to take the place of the broken
one. J? rank Dickey telegraphed both
Chicago and at. Liouis, but could not
obtain one readily large enough.
The Diamond Jo company has chains
at J-eUiaire, 85 miles down the river.
LcClaire has neither railroad com
munication nor telegraph, and the
only way of obtaining the chains is
by steamboat. The Artemus Lamb
was accordingly started out last
night and will return today. Air.
Dickey says it will take but a few
hours to raise the boat, and that it
will leave here Thursday afternoon."
The stage of the water at the Rock
Island bridge at noon was 1:35; the
The West Rambo, C. W. Cowles, J.
K. Graves and E. Rutledge brought
down eight strings each of logs.
The Pilot, Verne Swain and Pres

and Verne Swain passed up.
The Pittsburgh, which left here at
daylight Monday morning, is laid up.
She reached Clinton at noon with a
broken shaft, and was totally dis
abled when she reached Belle vue. It
was expected the Josephine wonld
take her passengers to St. Paul, but
she was in no condition to make the
run, so the 108 passengers were
ticketed through on the Milwaukee.
The accident occurred at LeClaire,
but the packet managed to reach
Ciinton by working her starboard
engine and finally made Bellevue,
when assistance came. She is now
in the ice harbor at Dubuque. Her
wheel is dismantled, and the
shaft goes to the Iowa Iron Works
for welding or a new shaft, as the
circumstances may warrant. The
repairs will take several days, if not
a week, to put the steamer in condi

Death relieved Mrs. W. A. Robb,
who had been suffering greatly for
some days, at 6:50 last night. Pne

With the bereaved husband are left

not quite 5 years. The deceased

in eight days. Mrs. Robb's maiden
name was Amelia Kerler, her birth
place Buffalo. Iowa. Three brothers
survive: Charles, of this city; Wil
liam, of Hot Springs, Ark., and
Louis, of Utah.
The deceased was ft woman of
noble nature, and the grief that is
felt by those to whom her death has
come as a crushing blow, is shown
by a large number of friends who
knew and loved her.
The funeral will be held from the
house at 1:30 tomorrow afternoon.
