DEADHEAD MAKES USE
OF AIR BRAKE ON NO. 4
For some time past ihe trainmen
in charge of No. 4 the midnight train
eat on the Reck Iland road have
been annoyed by the stopping cf
the train at Eist Moline. Io
quiry each time revealed the fact
that none of the train men had let
off the air. After some investiga
tion it was learned that the brake
was fet from the blind baggage
and the crew came to the con
clusion that some one had formed
the habit of riding from either
Rock Island or ftaolice on the
blind baggage and stopping the train
in oiuer to get oil at the eastern
suburb. Now the railroad has put
tne detectives on tne case ana the po
lice of the two cities are alio on the
lookout for the offender.
