THE ARGUS, THURSDAY. J ONE 24. 1897.
At a the kind that are always tee a coming
from Shields' store. There's a reason for
it, and a good one too. You never made a
purchase in your life that when you saw
you were getting your money's worth that
you didn't feel glad about it. Its ooly
natural that you should. Shields doesn't
boast that he's a philanthropist, but he does
claim to give good values for the dollars
you leave on his counters. It takes plenty
of pi inning and
Lots of Hustling
To keep iher e grocery values moving, but
those who know them best appreciate them
most. If you have watched this merry
merchandising you know its values to the
buyer, if not, avail yourself of the oppor
tunity and you will soon appreciate what
sales and cash payments means at Shields.

WHO DOSED ALDAY?
Coroner's Jury Says He Died
INQUEST IS AT AN END.
Mrs. Osbar Weeps While
Relating Her Story.
Tells of the Ungrateful Treat
ment of Her Two Sons.
Adam Alday's death in November.
1894, was caused from the effects of
poison. So declared the coroner's
jury at the conclusion of the iaquest
late yesterday afternoon. Heie is
the verdict: "We find that, from the
evidenoe adduced, Adam Alday came
to his death by arsenloas poison; the
arsenioas acia touna in the liver bv
ine examining cnemist, ana from the
expert testimony of the physicians
does not appear to be acconnted for
by tbe introduction of the embalm
ing fln'd after death." The jnry was
composed of A. X. Foster, foreman;
1. W. Benoe, William P. Hartley, T,
G. McGraw, X. I. Stanley and Arthnr
Jndson. Now the question as to
wno aamimsrerea the poison which
resulted in Aid ay's death, remains to
be answered, lc is probable that an
attempt to solve the case will be
made by the grand jury.
Airs, uaoar, the dead man's former
wife, was the principal witness at
me closing session of the inquest
She retained her cool and deliberate
manner throughout the examination.
until she began to tell the rela
tions between her and her two sons,
coward and V llliam.
At this juncture she broke do;vn.
s ne wept.
She said she had given the boys
money frequently, hoping that some
day they would be able to earn a liv
ing for themselves. The boys had
never supported themselves, Mrs.
Osbar said, and when she had no
means of seeming more money for
them unless by disposing of some of
ner late husband's property, thev
began suit to break the will and then
spread the report that their father
had been poisoned.
Mrs. Osbar said she was married
te Adam Alday in 1890. ! lived
with him until he died, on Nov. 7,
1896," continued Mrs. Odbar, testi
tying before the jury. "I was in the
house, but not in the room. lie was
sick about two years. Xhe trouble
with him when he first took aick, I
think, was too much drink. He was
63 years and 8 months of aze when
he died. He drank whisky, beer and
other liquors, and used about two
gallons of alcohel a jear to mix with
other drinks. He tirst complained
of pain in the region of the stomach

police. He took to his bed about
nine days before his death. I did not
know what was the master with him

did not seem to become much worse.
bat he simply could not help him

affected during the last illness, as he
sometimes thought he saw two or
three persons in the room when there
was only one. He had one and as
many as three physicians in one day,

"Alday liked to have the doctors
aoout him, but he refused to take
tbe medicines, saying that they
would do him no good. He had
some medicine which he brought
from Minnesota, which he seemed to
think was good for him. It was
first obtained from a druggist named
UoUister, at Lakefiald, Minn., and
was afterward filled at SohrbeckY
in Moline. During his last illness I
gave him medicine, when he would
take it. and. also gave him whisky.

ble she had with her late hasband
was on account of the boys, who re.
rusea to work, and were a constant
annoyance to their parents.
Drs. G. G. Craig and G. L. Eyster
testified. Dr. Craig doubted the pos-
aiouity oi arsenic reaching the liver
if injected into the stomach after
death. It should be in other organs.
In order to have a poisonous dose in
the liver after death. Dr. Craig held
that it must have been administered
during life. Dr. Eyster said he had
never had a case of arsenical poison
ing which had caused death. He
stated that the symptoms of death
from excessive nse of liquor were
similar to those attending alow
arsenical poiaonire. Ha eta ted that
in the injection of arsenical liquid it
may pass to any portion of the body;
and It would be impossible to any
rztent to decide whether it was aid-
ministered ante-mortem or post mor
tem. John Ochs, of Devenport, was
placed on the stand to tell about the
proposition auezea to bare Deen

Alday in the event of their dropping

said that he and his brother Edward
had been offered 1200 apiece by Mr.
Ochs, who is a real estate dealer at
Davenport. Mr Ochs said .that
William Alday was a liar an A 'a per

TALK ABOUT THE LEVEE.

and the revelations they found
there," said a Second avenue busi

help thinking how little some of the
councilmen seem to realize the import
ance oi thts proieetea improvement.
The indifference some of them show
is exasperating in tbe extreme. I
have often wondered it it is possible
that there is any alderman who fails
to take the interest in this matter
that he should who has ever taken
the trouble to go down there and
look the situation over, as did the
other two aldermen the other night.
l cannot believe that in this day
there sits in the municipal council
of Rock Island a representative of
the people, who, if he has taken a
look at the deplorable front this city
of so many superior advantages
presents to the outside world, can
fall to be enthusiastically in favor of
the immediate prosecution of the im

While there is much that is true
in the observations quoted, The

night which was witneseed by a
number of passersby. The hus

There were a number of passes, and
an occasional blow would be landed.
But no one said a word. After the
old man had apparently chastised
the children, he gave his undivided
attention to his wife. Ha shook his
right at her, and she followed sait.
The boys sat in a corner, and
looked solemn. But not a word was
spoken. In the second round the
husband picked np a chair, and at
tempted to awipe his wife on the

knockout blow. The pantomime
