Accident Happens Near the Crescent
Bride This Morning.
A valuable horse belonging to Mar
tin Weinberger & Sen, the ice dealers,
narrowly escaped drowning near the
Crescent bridge this morning. The
animal was used on the ice plow.
Owing to the open water along this
side the horses are taken on the ice
from the Davenport bank. This acci
dent happened in crossing a runway
near the other shore, and the horse
was in the water 15 .minutes before it
could be gotten out. In that time it
became so thoroughly chilled that the
consequences may prove fatal.

Cltlei Nrxt tjammer.
The invitation extended by the tri-
cities for a visjt from him during his
proposed summer western tour is
under consideration by President
McKinley. A dispatch from Wash
iogton last evening stated that Con
gressman Joe R. Lane, of Davenport
called at tbe Whito House and invited
the president to pay the call on the
occasion of his trip to California
during the summer. Ihe dispatch
adds that the president will con
sider the inritation. but in answer
ing Congressman Line he stated
that at this lime he could not give a
positive answer. There is hope that

ever, for the president has expressed
a desire to visit the arsf nal upon sev

arrange his trip so as to pass through

now on a fair way to recovery.

A Urand Social Event.
The coming' of Dr. H. B. F. Cris
tion, who will lecture on the impor
tant subject of beauty, form and
physical culture, no doubt will inter
est" our ladies. We believe it is a duty
that every woman should leirn the
art of becoming and remaining at
tractive.' This distinguished gentle
man, who has just left the Paris
schools where the science of beauty
and physical culture are tanght, is
fully the master of this subject, and
it will benefit all ladies to attend this
lecture, as it will impart to them the
many hints and valuable information
which to the American women are un
known, but which, if learned aud put
into practice, cannot but result in lm
provement. Tbe doctor says that in
France a lady at the age of 60 years is
not passe, but in the prime of life.
Husbands are proud of their wives'
youthful appearance. The great
trouble with American ladies is that
they use too many nostrums, which
destroy the delicate texture of the
face, instead of improving tbe com
plexion. Dr. Cristiun's lecture is of a
scientific nature. Hear it next Thurs
day afternoon and Friday at Harper's
theatre. Thursday lecturo free. ri
dav, admission 25 cents.
Dancer of Colds and La Grippe.
The greatest danger from colds and

however, and Chamberlain's Ccugh
Remedy taken, all danger will Le

diseases we ve yet to learn of a single
case having resulted in pneumonia,
which shows conclusively that it is a
certain preventive of that dangerous
malady. It will cure & cold or an at
