BLOWS' PA'S' MONEY
Officer Escorts Son of Rock
Island Business Man Back
MEETS HIS CHAEMEE THERE
Goes for a Visit Without Consulting
Parepts Same Old
The son of a Kock Island business
man returned from t'hicugo Saturday
evening- accompanied by a member
of the local police department.
It was the old story an affair of
the heart. Her home is in the big- city
by the lake. She was employed in this
city for about a year. They became
acquainted here. It is said they have
been married for months, but that the
parents of the young- man will not
recognize the girl.
The boy unceremoniously dropped
out of sight one day last week, lie
had been uneasy since his charmer
left the city. His parents noticed it.
They tried to induce him to forget,
but there was no use. He and the
girl had their Thanksgiving dinner to
gether in Chicago.
Took Some of Father's Funds.
He took along plenty of money to
defray the expenses of the trip. The
funds belonged to his father. The
latter was angry. He did not mean
to be unduly harsh with his son, but
he proposed teaching him a lesson.
If he wished money he must obtain it
in a legitimate way. Anyway, he
would not stand for blowing in the
receipts of his business on a girl that
was not to the liking of the parents.
The father knew just about where
he could locate his son. The officer
was furnished with all needed infor
mation, and an argument of sufficient
strength to persuade him to come
The couple were stopping at a Chi
cago hotel when the officer dropped
in on them. They were surprised, of
course, but the young man finally
consented to return.
LEAGUE GOfS TO THE WALL
Managers Found Patronage of Roller Polo
The roller polo league that started
a team in Davenport about a week
ago and promised to have one in Uock
Island shortly, is no more. Saturday
afternoon the word went out that
there would be no more games and
there was a grand rush in Davenport
on the part of the creditors to get
hold of the assets of the rlnb of that
city. The league was plainly not
heavily financed at the start ami poor
patronage incidental to the introduc
tion of a new form of sport did its
work in short order. So Kock Island
will hardly see the game played this
season unless it be on the ice by ama
teurs. One discouragement that went
far to the undoing of the polo league
was the objection of the owners of
the halls which were leased by the
managers of the various teams. It
was found that the skates and clubs
of the players played havoc with the
floors, rendering them tinfit for danc
ing, and in some cases it, was insisted
that new floors be put down.
