says, he found one of the wheels.
Mrs. Nowack claimed to have taken
it from a couple of boys who were
hauling thrill past in a cart. She
said siie had been unable to get the
ther, and the one she had she gave
up on receiving $1 lor her 1 rouble.
rhis was al.-o reported at the station
this morning in order to give the po
lice a clue as to what had become of
the other one.
This afternoon John, the young sou
v f I'eter ucvenyns, i.km i wenty-sixui

place where the wheels were left yes

a girl trying to take them away. She
said they had been there all day and
i.lTcred the boys one of them if they

to the station with the machine.

tory. FALL TEEM BEGINS YESTERDAY
Increase In Academic and College
Yesterday morning Augustana col
lege opened its doors and classes
were once again- started. AH the
momiiig the faculty had been very
busy receiving the new students and
Dr. Andreen called all the pupils to
gether in the chapel and after devo
tional exercises, he made a welcome
address, after winch the work was
started. The enrollment this morn
ing has been, very heavy ami it is ex
pected that they will have at least
100 more students at the beginning
than last year. There were 507 pu
pils enrolled the first day last year.
There are four departments which
opened up yesterday, the collegiate.
business, normal and the conserva

Largest In History.
President Andreen states that the
iiirollment at the college this week
is the largest of that of any first
week of the school year in the his
tory of the institution, thus promis
ing will for the year as a whole.
The increased attendance in the
academic and college departments is
most marked, many graduates of the
Kock Island and Moline high schools
entering to take the bachelors de
gree. This, Dr Andreen argues, is as
it should be, for the college offers n
valuable course that many who can
not afford to go away from home can
avail themselves of.
