Mr. and Mrs. Harry Smythe, for
many years residents of Bock Island,
and who recently moved to Dav
enport, have received word to the
effect tbat Mrs. Smythe'a mother,
Mrs. Sarah Hiatt, of Omaha, has fallen
heir to an estate of at least 11,000,000
by the death of an uncle who was en
gaged in the woolen manufacturing
business at Vienna.
The deceased, whose name was Felt
horff. was a millionaire, and his es
tate will make his relatives in Amer
ica very wealthy. The property left
by Mr. FeKhorff consists mainly in
the woolen factory that he owned at
He was an aged man and a bachelor
and his only relatives are those on
this side of -the water. Mrs. Hiatt is
a niece of Mr. Keith or ff. Mrs. Smythe
is ber only daughter. Mrs. Hiatt also
has a son-in-law, Tom Foley, and four
grandsons, children of Foley, a 1 liv
ing in Omaha.
To rile I'roofs.
It is believed FelthorfTs estate will
exceed a million in American money.
The proof of, Mrs. Hiatt's connection
with the deceased can easily be made,
it is said, and it will be done at once
and claim entered for the estate. At
torneys will go to Austria to look after

William Vermere, 532 Thirty-first
street, took down his rifle yesterday
and proceeded to rid the premises of
rats, which had been growing annoy
ingly numerous of late. Several shots
were fired, but every ball did not kill
a rat, as Mr. Vermexe's wife thought
it should, and she began to joke her
husband on his poor marksmanship
He told her if she did not believe be
had a true aim for her to hold up her
hand. She did so. Forgetting he had
reloaded the rifle, he took aim and
pulled the trigger.; ..The bullet went
through the palm of Mrs. Vermere's
right hand. Dr. J. F. Myers was
called and dressed the injury, which,
though painful, is not considered serious.
