THE DEEDOFA HERO
John H. Bertlesen Saves Lives of
Children at Risk of
AN EXCITING EUNAWAY EVENT
Horse Falls On Him and HeaTj
Wagon Is Dragged Over
John II. Bertlesen, the Twenty-second
street tinner, this forenoon at
the risk of his own life stopped a run
away team attached to Evans' dairy
wagon in which there were four or
five young children. Mr. Bertlesen's
sict was heroic in the extreme' and
he was rendered unconscious by the
force of the collision, one of the
horses falling1 over on him, the other
then dragging1 the vehicle on so that
the wheels passed over the man's

The accident occurred at Eighth
street and Fourth avenue, immediate
ly in front of the Union Mission. The
matron with her assistants removed
the injured man into the building,
where his bruised head was bathed
and dressed and his other hurts look
ed after. He received a blow above the
ear which raised a lump as large as
an eggs, while his arm and leg were
also badly bruised. I!e was finally
able to leave by himself and , drove
home alone and outside of a little
soreness will probably be all right in
a few days. None of the children was
The youngsters had piled in the
wagon while it was standing at a
post. They probably frightened the
horses, as they started in a mad gal
lop and when they reached the mis
sion it looked as though the children
would be thrown out and badly injur
ed at anv moment.

POPULATION IN LOWER END
OF COUNTY INCREASING
The directors of the Muscatine
High Bridge and the Drury Toll Road
companies recently held their annual
meeting at Muscatine. All the old of
ficers were reelected. The report of
Chester Lillibridge, the superintend
ent, showed that the travel over the
bridge during the past year increased
20 per cent over that of the lowest
year and 12 per cent over that of the
average year since the bridge was
The cause ascribed for this is the
settlement of the lands on the Illinois
side of the river, which is going on
rapidly. The Muscatine News-Tribune
estimates that there have been
150,000 acres of land changed hands
on the Illinois side of the river in the
lower part of Rock Island and the
west part of Mercer counties. This
is due in large part to the settling up
of the lowlands, and the newcomers
all do the greater part of their trad
ing in Muscatine.

William McDowell, the colored man
from Moline accused of robbing Alois
Crumbeecke of $5 on Fifteenth street,
of that city, Dec. 15, was found guilty

The Coming of a Doctor to Locate
Permanently in a town has no half-way significance upon the suffering hu
manity of a citj' either he is going1 to benefit them greatly or just the re
verse. When Dr. Home announced intention through the columns of this
paper of permanently locating here, naturally all thinking people wanted
to know all about him. His advertisements were bold, startling, but con
vincing; the testimonials were signed by the most reputable citizens.
Teople commenced to investigate, and visited his ofiices, and the most
convincing and pathetic scenes were seen in and around their reception
rooms, l'eople who had been suffering with rheumatism, lame back and
sciatica for years were being cured by a method that is as skillful, pain
less and quick as it is wonderful. Just think of a man who could hardly
walk for years, all crippled up with rheumatism, after taking one of his
treatments, dancing around the room with joy. l'eople deaf for several
years had their hearing restored, and were, one and all, anxious that their
names should be given to the public, so that others might be cured.
"There is no doubt in the people's mind of the great good he is ac
complishing with his new methods, and all patients say how much he is div
ing for them. He has extended his liberal offer of free TREATMENT lor
the next ten days, and we wi..h to fay that no sufferer should fail to avail
himself of the opportunity of consulting this eminent specialist as his ad
vice is valuable. If you cannot call, write full description of symptoms.
