occur tonight no further raise is ex

will begin. The conditions in the low

to get a start on the accumulated wa

too, will subside rapidly if there is no

morning and have been during all the
time of the heavy rains. The danger
to the D., R. I. sfx.W. at the Wapsie
bottoms will be past if the water does
not attain any greater stage. The
noon train on the C, M. fc St. P. was
delayed about half an hour by a slight
washout up the line, but the damage
done was insignificant. On the Illi

local trains are running on time and

some of the through trains. Trans

last night on Fourth avenue near Sev

thermore that she thought she had a
little more than" it was discreet to

To the oflieer she answered all the
seciricat ions included under the gen

She was promptly hustled to the sta
tion, where a few weeks before she
had' to be pulled from the wagon and
then lay howling and pounding her
heels .ii '-the ' floor. This time she
took another tack, and in slabs of
the king's choicest Knglish hurled out
her uneensoreil opinion of the Rock
Island police force. Finishing, she
got. her breath and repeated with
footnotes and marginal references.
This morning in a lavender silk skirt,

shoulder wrap she confronted the
magistrate, and her troubles were em
balmed in a tine of $10 and costs. On
the receipt of the money from Dav

John Johnson was fined $3 and costs
this morning by Magistrate Johnson
for a public exhibition t intemper
