May seem a queer occupation,
but it is one that is being car

hardly possible that a mer
chant could deal in "sunshine"
but that is what Shields has
been doing and is doing now.
By "sunshine" we do not mean
the warming rays of old Sol,
but we mean the "sunshine"
of contentment and happiness
which radiates in every home
where Shields' advanced meth
od of grocery selling is known
and has been tried much to the
satisfaction of the housewife.
Pure fresh groceries and pro
visions at prices which enable
a housewife to purchase plenty
of them bring sunshine into
the home. Why not try it?

Sparks, caih of whom expressed a
firm conviction in the erpetu!ty of

Iwelt extensively on the necessity on

guarding against the enemy, so often
appearing in the guise 'of a friend,

the field workers to preach with a
ersistence that left no doubt as to
their sincerity that confidence
alone in the administration of
the officers will maintain the
foundation on which the society has
been so wisely and firmly planted.
These admonitions were made in

TREOLOWN'S SENTENCE IS
COMMUTED TO FIVE YEARS
The state board of pardons has
commuted the sentence of John Treg-
lown. of Coal Valley, convicted of
doing away with the illegitimate
child of his daughter, to five years'
imprisonment. This "will free the
prisoner in about a year.

of the most dangerous and fatal dis

The bodies of the tvvo men shot by
Male llreen, of the steamer Dubuque,
are still at the lloies undertaking
rooms in Davenport, where they
were viewed yesterday by hundreds
of men, women and children, all in
tent upon seeing the faces of the sin
gular persons who met (hath in so
tragic a manner. The morbid curios
ity that many people have in regard
to the bodies of slaughtered persons
could be studied by any one that sat
in the office of the undertaking es
tablishment and saw the little girls
and women of all degrees of appar
ent intelligence and refinement enter
the street door and ask the question:
' "Can we see the dead men?"
The first impression the observer
of this procession received was one
of amazement, which tapered down
to mild astonishment when he found
the question reHated by hundreds
and discovered that such manifesta
tions of curiosity were not confined
to a few- individuals nor any one
class of people.

Kxamination of the contents of the
trunks and packages of the two men
conducted under the direction of the
coroner yesterday did not result in
any startling discovery or even in de

anil son were accustomed to call
home. A letter written by the older
man in Itock Island a few hours be
fore he took the boat and never
mailed, was found to be directed to a
woman at Waterville, Iowa. From
the tone and statt ments of the letter
and from letters received from the
woman it was evident that marriage
was contemplated and that MacGreg-
