FOR TRYING TO KILL
Joseph Shelley, Buffalo Town
sh'p Farmer, in Jail Under
HAD BEES "SHOOTIUO 'EM UP EOML"
Uses Revolver Trifle Too Care
lessly to Suit More' Civ
Joseph Shelley, the Drury farmer
who about a year ago was brought
before the public as the complaining
witness in a case in which a son-in-law
named Moore was tried for punc
turing his anatomy at close range
with a load of heavy shot, is in the
county jail under f 1,000 bonds as the
result of indulging in the too free use
of a revolver in the lower end Mon
day. Late Monday afternoon Shelley was
returning home afoot from Muscatine
over the high bridge, and when he
reached the touth end of the structure
he paused and locked over the railing
down where a gang of men with whom
be had had trouble weie at woik oa
the ground below.
Draws a Gun. (
The quarrel was resumed and Shel
ley, who seemed prepared for trouble,
whipped out a revolver and with it in
his hand went clown to where tae men
were and proceeded to bluff the whole
crowd. After a f eance in which he
covered one of them with bis gun be
returned to the road above to go on .
bis way. Here he met Bert Girls, au-l
other lower ccd resident, and the two
went to Mrs. Armstrong's feed yard,
where many of those goin to Musca-1
tine leave their horses to avoid pay
ing toll, and Girls got his animal- I
Oa the way Girls was so indiscreet
as to remonstrate with Shelley for his
rash acts and when the former had
gotten upon his horse Shelley drew
bis gun and mace bim ride away lor
dear life utder threat of being shot if
be looked back. When Girls had
gotten out of range he pondered over
the treatment he bad, received and
grew angry. Going to tbe home of
John Duncan he burrowed a single-
barrel shot gun and returning to a
point where be knew-Shelley would
pass, be climbed upon a wooupuo oe
side the road and waited for his man
Find More Trouble.
Shelley in the meantime had been
overtakes, on the road by one Waller
Linder, acd more trouble ensued,
lie drew his gun on Linder, but that
o d acquaintance did not take him
seriously, and after a few moments
the two rode on together. When the
bund in the rotul was reached where
Grla Bat upon the woodpile, Shelley
spotted his enemy and advanced to the
attack with sublime courage Girls
barricaded himself behind the pile,
and when Shelley came within range
he tired, putting several small shot in
tbe latter's legs. As the onslaught
was not checked by the bombardment
and as Girls bad but one load, he
took to his heels and prcsontly came
out unscathed in a race during which
ho had been the target for cold lead
from Shelley's revolver.
During the race Shelley had recog
nized tne shot gun in the bands of
Girl, and he became wroth with the
Duncans for having loaned it to his
enemy. , So he repaired to the Dun
can domicile and told the family what
he thought about it, emphasizing his
opinion with a display of his revol
ver. Trie to Make Arrest.
Later Shelley tried to arrest Girls,
but the latter disputed bis authority
and refused to go along. Each finally
swore out a warrant for the other for
attempted murder, Shelley before
Justice Wray and Girls before Justice
Brayton. State's Attorney Weld yes
terday went to the scene of action
and prosecuted Shelley, who took a
change of venue to Justice Cole. He
was held in the bond stated. As he
will probably be prosecuted on each
of the four or more separate counts it
may go bard with bim. The case
against Girls has not yet been hoard,
but the state's attorney does not pro
pose to take op the case against bim.

imprisoned here by members of the
Reed Piano company of Davenport on
a charge of embezzlement while in
the employ of the company and who
laid in jail here eight days pending
the securing of requisition papers,
has begun suit for $5,000 damages
for alleged false imprisonment.
It will be recalled that the charge
against Wiggin was that he misap
propriated $90 which he had collect
ed in Muscatine. He was arrested on
the street in this 'city during the
Woodmen picnic and refused to go to
Iowa and stand trial without a requi
sition. The authorities on thii bide
tiad at first no authority for holding
bim in custody and after some delay
C. S. Reed came over and swore out a
warrant for bim as a fugitive from
justice, securing a continuance in or
der to apply for a requisition. At
the time appointed for tne beariDg no
attempt had been made to secure the
legal transfer of Wiggin from the
state and tbe complaining witnesses
did not appear against him. There
fore Magistrate Johuson. before whom
the case was pending, gave the pris
oner his liberty. -
Wiggin claims to have a note
against the piano company for $250
and says it is on this account thatthe
company setki to prosecute him.
The Reeds,, on the other hand, claim
the note was given to Wiggin when
he was their agent merely to secure
him in case be was caught in an
emergency and that it was to have
been returned to them. Wigein has

A BOON FOB BUILDIHG INTERESTS
The Manufacture of Plastic
Brick is to Bo Taken
Perhaps no class of mannfacturers
at this time feel surer of a strong and
permanent demand for their product
than the makers of good building
brick. The rapidly increasing scarci
ty in the supply of timber for bulld
og purDOses and tne consequent in
crease in prices of lumber have cre
ated an unprecedented demand for
well made brick and the recent im
provements in the methods of manu
laature. together with experiments
that have led to the betterment of the
quality and improvement in the ap
pearance oi building bricK, are noia-
ng out possibilities wbicb rew other
lines of industry possess.
Development or Local Plant.
At the Argillo works at Carbon
Cliff which is owned by J. F. Robin
son and Fred 'V Herington, of this
city, has recently! een started a now
umcbiue for thl manafactuie of a
plastic fire brick rhich marks a new
era in the opq ations oi the plant.
Heretofore the fctory has made noth
ing but dry pvessed fire brick and
sewer and drain tile, but operations
are now under wav which it is hoped
will eventually lead to the manufac
ture of a high class building brick
and the ultimate doubling of the ca
pacity of the plant.
With the obi-sct above outlined in
view, the management some months
ajro secured the service of S. J Plant.
one of the best known brick mak
ers in the country, and a recognized
authority on the composition of clay.
He has developed some of the largest
brickmaking plants in the east, and
together with his experience he brings
plans for an improved kiln for bring
ouuding brick, which win oe utilized
at Carbon Cliff. Since coming here
he has held the position of superin
tendent of the ArgUlo works, and his
experiments with tbe clays used there
have convinced him that they can be
used in the manufacture of a grade
of building brick that will compete
with any m tha market.
I'lasilo rire Brick.
It has been demonstrated that plas
tic lire bnck are superior in quality
to those made on the dry press, so
the first change instituted has been
the installation of -a machine capable
of turning out 2000 to 40.000 of tub
former per day. The manufacture of
Hash" building brick will next be
ta&en up and facilities installed for
the making of at least an equal num
ber. Tbe building brick known as
Hash" will be of a dark color mot
tled with spots of iron brought out in
the burning. A sample kiin of these
have already been burned and re up
to all expectations, in fact experts
pronounce them equal to the output
of any of the eastern factories. It is
the intention of tbe managers to later
take up the manufacture of Haver
Btraw brick, or tbe ordinarv red arti
cle in common use. The making o
drain and sewer tile will for the most
part be abandoned, although the ma
chine will be kept to fill any chanca
Some time, of course, will elapse
before the new product can be put
upon the market. Several kilns will
have to be constructed and tbe brick
for them will have to be burned. Io
addition to the new 6-track dryer re
ccntly installed others will be built as
the needs of the plant require. Work
will be pushed with all possible speed
however, as there is a much greater
demand for building brick now than
the factories are able to supply, and
good prices prevail.

Tho Caosarian operation, the first

Dr. Crawford was assisted by Drs.

the patient, and the operation is be
lieved to have resulted in the raving
