Mulligan is a soldier at Rock Is

song is making the hit of the season
in the three towns, and there has been

The course of Managers Delcher and
Ilennessy, with reference to their new
farce, "Brown's in Town," which will
be the attraction at Harper's theatre
tomorrow- evening, illustrates the
state of theatrical affairs in New7 York
City as compared with the conditions
existing elsewhere. Hitherto it has
been considered by theatrical mana
gers that to make their play be it
comedy, tragedy, or just foolishness
draw on the road, a New York run
was absolutely necessary, and to gain
the prestige of a metropolitan indorse
ment which might pass current out
side of that interesting city, a great
many managers have kept their at
tractions running there long after the
playing public had ceased to patronize
them. It will be remembered that
tie comedy. "What Happened to
Jones," went to New York early in its
career and after the necessary pres
tige had been accumulated the tonr of
the outside world was continued with
success. "Brown's in Town" has
been played in all the principal cities
of the west- before going to the
metropolis, and while there was as
much glory attached to the success
elsewhere as to the success in New
York, it is vastly more profitable, and
if the prestige of a New York ran has
waned there will be many a good play
produced which has been held bacic
awaiting the endorsement once con
sidered necessary. The company en
gaged to represent "Brown's in
Town" is a capable one and includes
some clever people, among whom are
Charles Horn, George T. Welch. Em
met Whitney. George Ebner, Jessie
Mae Hall, Maud Knowlton. Fanny
Midgeley, Edith Weil and others.
That charminsr romedv of lovo. as
it has been styled by a critic, "At the
White Horse Tavern," will be the
attraction at Harper's theatre next
Saturday evening. Sydney Rosenfeld
saw the possibilities of this S-act
comedy wben its uerman original,
Im Weissen Roess'l." was being
played in Berlin, where it ran for
over a year. It was produced at Wal
lack's over a year ago, scoring a
lerigthy and successful run. Last
season it proved a big success in all
the larger cities visited. Tbe com
pany of nearly twenty people, which
has been selected with the greatest
care, includes Miss Minerva Dorr and
Frank M. Norcross, both well and
favorably known in nearly every city.

ROCK ISLAND SEEMS DOOMED TO STAY - (.
IN THE PRINCE CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT
According to las', night's dispatches
from Springfield the new congression
al apportionment plan is again an
nounced as complete and authentic.
The Chicago Tribune of this morning
says: "Cook and Lake counties to
gether will have 10 congressional dis
tricts. The plan of apportionment,
so far as those two counties are con
cerned, will be that devised 10 days
ago by the subcommittee of the re
publican county committee of Cook
eounty. There will be some minor
changes in Cook county, but., they
are insignificant and only intended
to build up the districts. The sub
committee of the senate and house
committees, on congressional appor
tionment in executive session last
night, by a vote of 18 to 2, gave Cook
county, with Lake, 10 congressional
districts. Senator Pemberton, of
Coles, and Representative Merrill, of
Peoria, furnished the negative vote's.
A week or so ago this same subcom
mittee, bv a vote of 11 to 6, gave
Cook. Lake and Will together 10 dis
tricts. On that basis Senator Stub
ble Held, chairman of the sen
ate committee, gave out a
map, which- showed- how the 'state
FREEMAN III PRISON
Confessed Wife Murderer Taken
to Anamosa, Where He is to
Serve Life Sentence.
FUTELT EDUCATED AND A STUDENT
Graduate of Augustana College
Has Held Responsible
John Freeman, the ex-editor of
Rock Island and Moline, and .Emmet
county (Iowa) wife murderer, who
was last week taken to the state peni
tentiary at Anamosa, to serve a life
term, is undoubtedly the best edu
cated lifer in the Iowa penitentiaries.
He was born in Sweden in 1852, but
came to the United States many years
ago, and his parents now live In
Meeker county, Minnesota. He also
has a brother and two sisters living
He was first married to Christine
S. Reinhold at Princeton, 111., in
1884, but the wife he murdered in
Emmet county was his second. He
was educated at Augustana college,
Rock Island. He -became -a teacher
and took charge of the Lutheran par
oshial schools in Moline for two years
For some time be worked for the
Lutheran Augustana Book concern
and for a year and a half was man
ager of a Swedish Lutheran news
paper at Moline. (
Ills Conduct Questioned. .
It was while in the latter business
that his conduct became questionable
and he was set adrift. He went to
Chicago and failed to get work and
finally landed on a farm in Lmmet
county, la. He confessed to the mur
der of his wife in their home, after
which he set fire to the house to hide
his crime. He said the crime was
due to the-quarrels they had had re
garding some money which had been
realized from salt of her property. He
is a finely educated man and quite a
student. He declared that he realized
fully the enormity of the crime he
had committed and was willing to take
bis punishment, even if it should be
deatb. When asked just before his
sentence if he believed in capital pun
ishment, he said:
Views on Capital Fnnlabiaeat. .
"Yes and no. Iam rather opposed,
but am open to conviction according
to the circumstances. I would not
argue the question. This, however, I
will say, that with many eminent
educators I hold the view that as a
fundamental principle in all discipline
it should be tbe aim and purpose so to
mete out the punishment that it will
tend, if possible, to reform, to lift up,
to make better, to save the. one pun
Freeman accepted his sentence
without comment, and proposes to be
a model of sanctimonious good con
duct. Freedom palls on him, but
penitentiary fare makes him want to
be a better man.
HIGH SCHOOL LOSSES

The insurance losses on the Rock

"In the winter of 1893 and 1899 I
was taken down with a severe attack
of what is called la grippe," says F.
L Hewett. a prominent druggist of
Winneld, ill. "lbe only medicine!
used was two bottles of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. It broke up the cold
and stopped, the coughing like magic,
and I have never since been troubled
with grippe." Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy can always be depended upon
to break up a severe cold and ward off
any threatened attack of pneumonia.
It is pleasant to take, too, which
makes it most desirable and one of the
most popular preparations in use for
these ailments. For sale by all drug
gists. outside of Cook would be apportioned.
Since Will goes into a country district,
now two of the districts in northern
II inois will be changed from the
Stubblefield map. Will is to be thrown
into the Hopkins district, which will
te composed of Will, Du Page, Kane
and McHenry. The Reeves district
will be Winnebago, Boone, DeKalb,
Kendall, Grnndy and LaSalle. The
Hltt district will be Jo Daviess. Steph
enson, Carroll, Ogle, Lee, Whiteside.
"The Prince district will be Rock
Island, Knox, Fulton, Schuyler and
Henry. The Marsh district will be
Mercer, Henderson, Warren, McDon
ough, Hancock and Adams. The
Graff district will be Bureau, Put
nam, Marshall,- Stark, Peoria and
TazewelL The Cannon District will
be Kankakee, Iroquois, Vermillion,
Edgar. Clark and Cumberland. . The
Warner district will be DeWitt,
Champaign, Piatt, Macon, Moultrie,
Douglas and Coles. The Caldwell
district will be Shelby, Montgomery,
Christian, Sangamon and Macoupin."
According to this plan, which is
based on the 1900 vote, the Rock Is

NEW SHOE BRANCH HOUSE.
I. L. Vanderstlee, of This City, to Hanase
One In Davenport.
TheNorth Star Shoe company, of
Minneapolis, Minn., has leased tbe
building . formerly and now occupied
by the S. W. Pierce Shoe company,
Davenport. As the latter mentioned
firm is going out of the shoe "business,
they expect to start there April 1, and
they will carry a large stock of rub
bers and leather goods. They will
handle the celebrated Boston Rubber
Shoe company's brands Boston first
grade and liay Mate second grade
This brand is the best shown on- tbe
market. at least the majority of shoe
dealers agree to its superiority. In ad
dition to the exceptionally large rub
ber stoox, tbey will carry a good as
sortment of leather shoes of their own
manufacture, made at Minneapolis,
Minn., and at Anoka, Minn., where
they have a branch factory. This
point will be the distributing point
for a large part of their
"Iowa territory, and they expect
to work up an additional large
trade in -Illinois and northern Mis
souri. It is their intention to
work nine salesmen from this point,
which will give them 40 road sales
men on their pay roll, not taking into
consideration the four lines used by
house and city salesmen.
The North Star Shoe company will
shove hard for business from this
point and they will work their busi
ness at this point on the same liberal
ideas, using the latest up-to-date
methods for introduction of goods,
etc. The North Star is a thoroughly
up-to date house, and its success at
its home office would signify that the
shoe industry of this locality would
be pushed in a way that will take on
the aspect of a shoe center. Being
so closely connected with the large
house at Minneapolis, it will have the
experience of its business methods.
I. L. Vanderslice, of Rock Island, who
represents, the North Star people in
this territory, will manage the Dav
enport branch in connection with his
A GOOD DEAL OF NONSENSE.
About "Blood Purlflers and "Tonics.''
Every drop of blood, every bone,
nerve and tissue in the body can be
renewed in but one way, and that is.
from wholesome food properly di
gested. Tbere is no otber way, and
tbe idea that a medicine in itself can
purify the blood or supply new tis
sues and strong nerves is ridiculous
and on a par with the fol-de-rol that
dyspepsia or indigestion is a germ
disease or that other fallacy, that a
weak stomach which refuses to digest
food an be made tp do so by irritating
and inflaming the bowels with pills
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets cure in
digestion, sour stomach, gas and
bloating after meals, because 'tbey
furnish the digestive principles which
weak stomachs lack, and unless tbe
deficiency of pepsin and diastase is
supplied it is useless to attempt to
cure stomach trouble by the use of
"tonics," "pills" and "cathartics"
which have absolutely no digestive
power, and their only effect is to give
a temporary stimulation.
One grain of the active principle in
Stuart's Dyspepsia, Tablets will digest
3,000 grains of meat, eggs and simi
lar foods and experiments have shown
tnat tbey will do tbis in a glass Dot
tle at proper temperature, but of
course are much more effective in the
There is probably no remedy so
universally used as Stuart's Tablets,
because it is not only the sick and
ailing, but well people who use them
at every meal to insure perfect di
gestion and assimilation of the food.
People who enjoy fair health take
Stuart's Tablets as regularly as tbey
take their meals, because they want
to keep well, prevention is always bet
ter than cure, and Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets do both; they prevent indiges
tion and tbey remove it wbere it ex
ists. The regular use of one or two
of them after meals will demonstrate
their merit and efficiency better than
any other argument.
For the weakness and prostration
following grip " there is nothing so
prompt and effective as One Minute
Cough Cure. . This preparation is
highly indorsed - as an unfailing rem
edy for all throat and lung troubles
and its early use prevents consump
tion. It was made to cure quickly.
