T.gSrApeHJS, rOXDAY, DECEMBER 14. 1903.
E. S. Crull, chairman of the board
of directors of the Travelers Protec
tee association, was tendered a
unique farewell entertainment Satur
day evening at the meeting1 of the lo
cal post.' Mr. Crull is a member of the
Major-Crull Lumber company, of this
city, who has, because of his health,
decided to leave for the south to
spend the winter.
A large number of recruits have
been enrolled from the local station
in the rrnst few days. Following is
list of those recently sent from Dav
'eiiport to posts in the west: Victor
Dahlquist, for the 3rd infantry at
Fort Thomas, Newport. Ky.; Henry
Anderson, fcr the coast artillery at
Fort Stevens. Oregon: Harvey J. Mon
tague, for the cavalry at .Jefferson
barracks; Henry J. King, for the cav
hIi-v at .lefferson barracks; .7. Whit
tingten, to the 10th cavalry (colored)
at Fort Robinson. Neb.; Henry ner
lion, to the 8th cavalry at Fort Hill,
Saturday afternoon as two youn
women. Miss Laura Wooden and Miss
Alice Pomerien. were walking aloiij
West Third street their purses con
taininir a considerable amount v
money were snatched by u pickpocket
who instantly made his escape
through a back yard and thence to
the down town district on Second
street. The purse-snatching is one o
the boldest robberies committed
this city for some time, as the deed
was done in broad davliirht with
number of persons on the street who
witnessed the action, but were unaoie
to-capture the thief because of the
nuiekness of his movements. The
young women were not aware of the
presence of the thief, who walked up
behind them for a short distance and
when opportunity offered rushed be
twnn t hum nrul j'r:isi)in"' both nurses
which were earried in the hands of
the young women, easily made his es
cape through the lawns of the rest
deuces which front cn Third street
An alarm was instantly triven, but 1
no nvail. for but a meagre description
could be given of the fellow who had
done the stealing, so the police are at
a loss for a clue to work upon.
Mrs. (iottfrid Hergdahl died at Mer
cy hospital at 3 o'clock Saturday
morning. She was operated upon for
gall stones and could not survive. The
operation occurred Thursday and she
had steadily declined from then until
ner .death. Deceased was born in
Oermland, Sweden, Dec. 23, 1871.
About five years ago she was married
to Gottfrid Bergdahl in this city. She
leaves her husband, a child three
months old and some relatives in Wis
cousin. The funeral will be held from
1204 East Tenth street at 2 o'clock to
morrow afternoon, with --services at
2:30 at the Swedish church on East
Sixth street and interment at Oakdale
J. Stanley Forrest, the noted prison
evangelist, passed away at St. Luke's
hospital : Friday night. Death came
as the result of weaknesses resulting
f rom'pulmona- disease. Last spring
he returned to this city to die and
went soon after his arrival to St.
Luke's hospital. He was well known
in the vicinity as a prison evangelist,
having preached in the jails of the tri
cities about, four years ago. At that
time he roomed on the southeast cor
ner of Eleventh and Main streets. He
has spoken in many penitentiaries
about the country. He himself had a
great record for crime during his
earlier years and made no secret of it
It was in. serving a term for crime
that he contracted--the disease which
caused his death.
. According to a statement by Rev.
tiiglinger, two of the resorts which
have led in making the unsavory rep
utation that has haunted Davenport
for years will be closed up on short
notice. James Munro, who has con
ducted a saloon and dance hall at Sec
ond and Rock Island streets, will be
forced to close his dance hall and
take out the Mine rooms in his sa
loon. It is probable that the saloon
will continue to operate, although
under the midnight closing rule which
is now being enforced. An agreement
was reached Saturday afternoon be
tween Rev. Giglinger and Charles
Lienhardt, the owner of the property
liow being occupied by Munro, where
by he promises to remove the dance
hall and force the removal of the wine
rooms. . The injunction suit which is
now in the district court against Mun
ro'will not be dropped, but will be
prosecuted as was the original inten
tion of Rev. Giglinger.
. The management of the Davenport
high school foot ball team has ar
ranged to give the annual football
dance at Library hall next Saturday
evening. The affair is one of the
school events of the year and no doubt
will be well attended. The receipts of
this dance are devoted toward paying
off the debt in which a football sea
son generally places the high school
Martin Haley was arrested Satur
day evening on a charge of having
sto'en a laprobe from a buggy belong
ing to Martin & Reupke. The proper
ty . was missed early in the evening
and the loss reported to the police,
who found.it in the ' possession of
Haley, who was taken into custody to
await police court.
Saturday night was one of unwont
ed quiet in Davenport. All saloons in
the city closed promptly at midnight
and the occupants loitering in. them
at that hour were turned out into the
cold, the doors bolted and the lights
turned out. A visitor after midnight
would hardly have recognized the
place as Davenport. Bucktown was
in darknes-s and the reform inaugur
ated by Kev. Giglinger plainly showed
its effect upon all sides.
Frank Ewoldt, 2643 Farnam street,
a well-known carpenter of this city,
who until recently was employed at
the Bettendorf Axle works, lies at St.
Anthony's hospital in St. Louis fatal
ly injured as the. result of an acci
dent. Mr. Ewoldt recently went to
work upon the world's fair buildings
now in course of erection in the
Mound city. Wednesday afternoon Mr.
Ewoldt was crushed beneath a der
rick from which the safety pin had
fallen while a huge stone was being
hoisted into position.

The colli weather saved the Sunday
theatre patrons another cheat last
evening, for those who remained at
home and read the jokes in the Sun
day papers got more real amusement
than those who forked over a half
simoleon to see "The Kantzen jammer
Kids." The youngsters who imper
sonated the characters created by
Dirks, the cartoonist, even were not
funny, or perhaps they were instruct
ed not to get too gay to lighten the
contrast with the other members of
tlie company. A song, dance and acro
batic team were the features of the
show, unless it is that a word of com
mendation should be said for the
trick mule. He created more laughs
than all of his fellow actors put to
gether. The company w as a few chips

Thomas Preston Brooke, the re
nowned bandmaster, lias seen fit to
make one interpolation into his ex
clusive "rag-time" concerts, in re
sponse to thousands of requests. The
interpolated number is Gottschalk's
"Last Hope," and it is safe to say that
this charmingly beautiful composition
was never rendered by any instru
mental organization as it is played by
the Brooke band. The arrangement
was made by Mr. Brooke himself, and
neither time, trouble nor expense were
spared to make it the most perfect ar
rangement ever made for a military
band. Its performance is embellished
by a set of pure silver chimes, import
ed from Switzerland by Mr. Brooke at
a cost of $3,200. During Brooke's sum
mer season at the Chicago coliseum
the "Last Hope" was "played 120 times
by general request, and it is pronounc
ed by press and public to be the most
exquisite tone picture of tender pa
thos ever composed. The band is soon
to appear here.
"The Sleepy King" conies tonight.
The costumes and mechanical or scen
ic effects are magnificent in the ex
treme. A fortune was expended in
preparing the piece for the public and
innovations have been produced that
cannot help being keenly appreciated
by those who unconsciously use their
eyes to better advantage than their
ears. Music, specialties, scenic effects
and costumes blend in one gran i har
monious whole. Dick Ferris, proprie
tor, has spared neither labor nor mon
ey in supplying Mr. Jones with the es
sentials for an excellent performance,
and the appearance of the company
in this city may well be looked for
ward to with great interest, even en
thusiasm. George Sidney and his merry com
pany will show us the second edition
of "Busy Izzy," the musical farce ve
hicle which served so admirably last
year at the Illinois Saturday. It is
promised that the entire musical pro
gram has been changed for the pres
net tour. This, with the new scenic
production and handsome costumes,
makes the offering practically new
throughout. Among the new song
hits are "Tommy and Me," "Can We
Stroll Together?" "Anna. My Dixie
Anna," "Beautiful Dream, Come True,"
"The Bell Boy," "I Never Had Such a
Time," "She Beads the New York Pa
pers Every Day," and "I Want to Go
Back to Old London." George Sidney
has a lot of new verses to his parody
on "Mr. Dooley" and a new burlesque

the Imperial and Royal Notarial and United States Consular verifications.
Upon subjecting a sample of BUDWEISER Beer, brewed by the
Anheuser-Busch Brewing Ass'n, St. Louis, U. S. A. to a thorough
examination, we declare it to be a fully matured lager beer. Its whole
nature bears witness to the fact that only the very best materials were
used, and that the greatest cleanliness prevailed in its manufacture.
The product is not only similar to the highest grade of Bohemian Pale
Beers in all its properties, but surpasses our best beers in keeping
qualities, which is of the utmost importance.
