I STRUCK BY SWITCH ENGINE.
Jacob Dels Has a Thrilling Experience On
Jacob Dies. 81 years of age, residing
at 1015 Fifth avenue, was struck by a
Burlingtou engine at 5 o'clock yester
day afternoon, while attempting to
cross the track at East Seventeenth
street, and rather severely injured.
Mr. Deis had been down watching the
leree improvement. In starting home
he noticed the R. I. & P. train go by.
but the Burlington switch engine ap
proaching in the same direction was
not observed. The latter struck him,
throwing him to one'Sido with terri
ble force. Maurice Mulcahy, standing
near by, picked the old gentleman up
and assisted him to the People's Pow
er company s olliee, where assistance
was sent for. Dr. Ball attending him.
Mr. Deis injuries consist of deep
scratches on the left side of the face,
while the right arm is badly lacerated,
and it is thought he is hurt internally.

this afternoon, when at a special
meeting of the city council, a resolu
tion was introduced bv Aid. Bonev
Johneon, on behalf of Promoter Blair,
practically asking the municipality
to deliver up to the latter's corporation
the Kock Island river front. The
resolution, which was at once re
ferred to the street and alley com

print, and asks permission to con

the west line of Seventeenth street to
the east line of Eighteenth Vect. and
at the latter point to cros if-outh

of the block between Seventeenth and

a trip over the levee this afternoon.

that last winter his wife was attacked
with la grippe, and her case grew 60
serious that physicians at Cowden and

seemed to develop into hasty con

Discovery in store, and selling lots of
it, he took a lx-ttle home, and to the

wearing of a rough-faced overcoat,
if only just for a change from the
smooth-faced garment which has
been in vogue the last two or three
winter seasons, and is still fashion
able this year; but for the ultra
fashionable few, the "Fashion
Gods" have decreed that their
overcoat shall be made of rough
faced diagonal wool and worsted
Cheviots, and the almost equally
rough faced, but less pliable, though
cold-defying Frieze. The color

solid shades down to deep Oxford.
