George Burgten, aged 12 years,
who confesses having committed
several of the series of mysterious
burglaries that have occurred in the
three cities during the last two weeks,
is held a prisoner at the Moline po
lice station. He was captured in that
town yesterday morning by Ofiicer
fieisberger, after having broken into
three stores, stealing a quantity of
goods, all of which he got rid of ex
cept a rifle. Bov-Iike, he held on to
the latter, and sought a secluded spot
to test it. This is what led to his
apprehension. A woman detected a
barefoot lad scooting through an
alley with a gun over his shoulder.
Officer Geisberger was detailed on
the case. He donned citizen's cloth
ing and trailed the youthful burglar
to the government dam. lhe boy
was sitting on the dam popping the
bullets into the water, and gave no
heed to the approaching man, but
seemed somewhat surprised when

sturdy old agriculturist, Fred Hninz
propagator of the celebrated Heinz

Davenport. Mr. Heinz was glad
he was alive. He smiled at
the women and babies and then
drew a. long breath and belched

them with his "goose pipe." The

The entire program was less than

were treated to a band concert at the

speakers made no points that the
audience felt like applauding. At
