An old-time resident of Davenport
was called vesferdav when 0. S.
McNeil breathed his last ot his home
at 1600 Brady street. Mr. McNeil for
more than half a century has been a
well known resident of this city, long
prominent, in business affairs, and
carried with hiin into the retiremerft
of his later years the respect, and es
teem of his wide circle of acquain
tances. He was in the latter half of
the 86th year, and had spent the larg
er part of his life in this city. He
was married in Indiana before he
came to Davenport, his first. wife dy
ing 22 years asro. Thev had no chil
dren; but an adopted daughter, Lilli
an, is now Mrs. II. Jay Clarke, of
Kansas City, Kans. Ten years ago
Mr. McNeil was united in marriage
to Miss Charlotte Ovcfdiek, who has
been a most faithful' ministrant to
him during the years that they have
Vpent togvUier. A young 'brother
Harry H. McNeil, of Sioux City, is at
Hot riprings. Ark., for his health. Two
aged sisters are also living one at

The death of Mrs. James Walker oc
curred yesterday at the home of
her sister. .Mrs. John II. Alexander.
:i02 Kirkwood boulevard. Doth Mrs.
Walker and her sister had been ill
for the past week, suffering from
grip. Mrs. Walker had been seriously
ill, audi tier case assumed a dangerous
phase tin Sunday, and yesterday
morning she commenced to sink rap
idly, and peacefully passed away nt
about 10 o'clock. The, deceased was
born in Pittsburg, Pa., Aug. 14, 18:50,
and was therefore (" years of age.
Her maiden name was Sarah Hoek-
son. Her mother dying when she was
quite young, she came to Scott coun
ty with, her uncle, Jesse leagarden,
in 1S34, and was married in Daven
port tf James Walker in 1S45. They
removed to the home on the Summit
where they have lived ever since then.
Mr. Walker survives, with two sons in
distant honies, Albert 1!.. in British
Columbia, and Jesse A. in Oklahoma.
Announcement is made of the ap
proaching nuptials of Hermann Peter
sen: ami Miss Lahrmann, daughter of
Mriand Mrs. Otto H. Lahrmann, which
will be celebrated at the home of the
bride's parents, on West Third street
near Pine, during the week.
At 2 o'loek yesterday afternoon oc
curred the hearing of Oeorge Wall on
the charge of insanity. Wall, it will
be remembered, is 1he cigarmaker
who lived on Seventh and LcCIaire
streets, and who felt himself going
insane, and hurriedly called at the
county jail and pave himself up, tell
ing the turnkey in charge that lie
felt himself going crazy, and there
fore wanted to be put out of harm's
way. The turnkey searched, the man
and allowed him to retain a small
metal box of salve, which he said he
rcfpiired for use upon a sore, when
he was escorted to the pnddd cell.
Wall had been there once before, and
Turnkey Kldridge knew him. This
was on Sunday morning. About noon
Sheriff Mc.Vrthur happened to n
proach the-padded cell and found the
man weltering in his blood. He had
pened the vein in his left wrist with
the metal cover of the salve box, by
sawing through the flesh. The man
had lost considerable blood, and was
removed to the hospital where for
some time he hovered between life
and death. Now he has developed
complete insanity, which the com
missioners considered yesterday af
ternoon. It is stated Wall's mental
unbalance, is due to worry over a wo
man with whom he had lived without
the formality of a marriage cere
mony. They had one child, it is
stated. The. wife with whom he lived
fir'st on Fifth nndi Ilipley streets, and
then on Seventh and Le Claire streets,
he was legally wedded to. The past
worried him and led to his present
insanity. The commissioners heard
the evidence in the case and commit
ted the. unfortunate to Mt. Pleasant
as a public patient. He was taken
there in the afternoon.
STRONG EVIDENCE OF FAITH.
T. II. Thomas Guarantees That Ilyomr 1
Will Care the Worst Case of Ca
tarrh In Kock Island.
When one of the most reputable
concerns in Kock Island guarantees
that a medicine will effect a cure or
he will return the money, it speaks
volumes as to .the merit of that rem
edy. It is in this way that T. H.
Thomas is selling Hyomei, the treat
ment that has made so many remark
able cures of both acute and chronic
cases of catarrh in Kock Island aud
Hyomei is not a pill nor is it a liquid
that has to be taken with a table
spoon or wineglass. Just breathe it
in by the aid of an inhaler that comes
in every outfit and benefit will be seen
from the first treatment.
It destroys all germ life in the air
passages and lungs and enriches and
purifies the. blood with additional
pzone. It cures catarrh of the head
and throat, or of the stomach, liver
and kidneys. Wherever mucous mem
brane contains catarrhal germs, there
Hyomei will do its work of healing.
When using this treatment, the air
you lthe will be found like that
on the mountains high above the sea
level, where grow balsamic trees and
plants which make the air pure by
giving off volatile antiseptic fragrance
that is healing-to the respiratory or
gans. Itemember that if Hyomei does not
cure you, T. H. Thomas will refund
your money. This is a good time to
cure catarrh by this natural method
and prevent catarrhal colds that are
so common at this season.
Organizer A. K. Ireland opened his
campaign in Moline in the interest of
organized labor at a mass meeting at
Industrial hall Sunday afternoon, and
though his audience was not as large
as was expected, those who were
there felt well repaid for attending
in their enjoyment of his. presentation
of the cause. Mr. Ireland spoke under
the auspices of the Tri-City Labor
congress, through which he was se
cured as special organizer to work
in the tri-city field.
Two -men successfully held np and

light ;ii the matter further than that
two men assailed him, thoroughly
choked him, relieved him of
what lie had and then walked leisur

time lie could not tell whether his as
sailants, were tall or short, heavy,
medium ,'or slim, . , . vl

in that city.
A proposition is to be made by the
local union of painters and decora
tors. No. 81, to the national officers
at Lafayette, Ind., for the removal of
the headquarters to Moline. The
gain to the city would le a great in
crease in postal receipts and the ac
quisition of many families to the
city's population. The painters have
conferred with the Industrial Home
association with a view to rentinjr the
entire ground floor of the Industrial
Home building, and a proposition is
also considered for the purchase of
the entire building. It also depends
upon- what terms can be secured how
much further the movement will be
followed, and if encouragement is
received the union men will go after
the Business Men's association for as
sistance in the effort.
That, the Moline and Onlesburg
high schools will not withdraw from

to place the two schools on next

out on his return from the Military

of Mr. Heil to withdraw their schools
from the league if this revision in the

Mrs. 1. C. Bryant, of the Moline
Conservatory of Music, was shocked
yesterday on receipt of a telegram
briefly announcing the death of her
only sister, Mrs. I'. T. Maclntyre, of
Boston. No particulars were given,
and inasmuch as a letter was received
from Mrs. Maclntyre a week ago in
which no mention of illness was made
the news is doubly surprising. Mrs.
Bryant took the first train for Boston
after the receipt of the sad news.
Mrs. Maclntyre was a young woman,
only 35 years of age. She visited Kev.
and Mrs. Bryant here some five years
ago in company with her husband,
and they made quite a number of Mo

said' to have been due to heart fail

Hundreds of young women; her advice is freely and cheerfully

Judging from the letters she is receiving from so many young girls Mrs.
Pinkhara is inclined to the belief that our girls are pushed altogether too near

Nothing is allowed to interfere with studies, the girl must be pushed to
