An Automobile Smash I'p.
Excitement prevailed on Second
avenue this afternoon when an
automobile owned by J. IX. Davis, of
Davenport, came tearing up the
street at a fearful rate of speed. It
was soon evident that the occupants,
two well known young men of that
city, had lost control of the machine,
which, in turning a corner, collided
with a telegraph pole with such force
as to be completely demolished, but,
strange to say, the young men who
were uninjured, jumped from the
wreck and ran as fast as they could
up Second avenue, much to the sur
prise of all who saw the smashup. On
inquiry it was found that their wild
rush was to secure seats for "A Hus
band on Salary," at the Illinois thea
tre Wednesday evening, Sept. 10.
