Farey Hood, Wasted Almost to
Skeleton, Dies at Pest
house. HAD NOT BEEN VACCINATED
Ami SnfT- rs Disease in Moat Violet. r
Harvey Hood, his body shrunken al
most to a skeleton, cned at 11:15 this
morning at the smallpox hospital in
the southeastern part of the city.
where he hao been since last Sunday
morning, when he was removed from
a coach in the Burlington yards.
Hood was en route from North Da
kota, where he hit Campbell Bros,
circus, by which he was employed as
waitci. to his home in Lincoln. Neb..
when taken sick on the train. Health
Commissioner G. Craig. .lr., at the
request of the railroad officials met
Hood when he arrived in Bock island
last Saturday evening, and diagnosed
his ailment as smallpox.
Wortt form of IliM-e
Hood suffered from the worst form
of the disease, the confluent type, the
sores running together and converting
his body into one uglv ulcerous
rowth. Dr. Craig finds it is the first
case ol toal type tnat has been treat
ed in Bock Island in 2' years. It is
nothing more than an example of the
old-fashioned smallpox that is modi-
fled through vaccination, and affords
a lOrCIOie illustration tor tne urgency
for adopting vaccination as a precau
tion and safeguard against the on
slaught of this dread contagion.
Had Xi Item Vitrei Nat ext.
food, in one of his rational mo
ments, admitted to Dr. Craig that he
had never been vaccinated. He has
been delirious nearly the whole of the
time since reaching the hospital.
Those having the confluent type of
the disease rarely live the sixth day.
Hood went beyond that period and
there were hopes until yesterday of
his pulling tnrough. Every attention
was given him. Louis Rooks, the at
tendant employed by the health de
partment, remaining at his side night
Lbv VVIilow rl Mother.
Hood was '21 years of age and sin
gle. His mother is a widow living in
Lincoln. She is in poor circumstances.
He has a brother a traveling sale man.
The mother and brother have been
advised of the death. It has not been
determined where the body shall be
buried. The health department will
take nil possible precautions to pre
vent the spread of the scourge. The
bodv will be wound in disinfected gar
ments and placed in a sealed casket.
In a single day this week over seven
hundred parties arrived in St. Louis
by water. It is said by local authori
ties who are close students of the
river traffic that for the time, at least,
more business is being done by the
river in the way of transporting pas
sengers than since the Mi's. In speak
ing of the number going to the fair
by water, a rivermap of Koek Island,
said: "Visitors are going by way of
the upper Mississippi, the lower Mis
sissippi, the Missouri, the Ohio, the
t umberiand, the Tennessee, and other
Streams which empty into the big
river or into any of Its large tribu
taries. They are coming from the At
lantic coast by way of the lakes and
others by way of the gulf of Mexico.
A fine lesson in illustration of the ad
vantage of an intelligent and thorough
system of rivi r improvement in the
west Is furnished by the boats which
are being tied up at the levee of St.
Louis these days. The Men that the
waterways have outlived their useful
ness is erroneous. More traffic ges
by way of the great lakes and by the
Boo canal now than ever before. If
an adequate system of river Improve
ment v.ere adopted there would be a
great increase in the industry and the
commerce of the west. As regulators
of railway rates the rivers have a use
ful function. The building of the Pan
ama canal will incite a river improve
ment in the Mississippi valley which
will tell effectively in the development
Of this region in the coming quarter
of a century."
The steamer Quincy arrived here
this morning about 9 o'clock en route
to St. Louis. On board were 250 peo
ple bound for the exposition.
The Ruth ami Winona were down
and back. The Quincy came down and
the Bmily went north. The stage of
water was X.O all day.
Nearly stationary staire in the Mis
sissippi will continue between Du
buque and Davenport.

JURY DECLINES TO BREAK
WILL OF WILLIAM TAIZE
A will case that has been on trial
for two weeks in the circuit court at
Cambridge came to a conclusion yes
terday in a verdict sustaining the pro
visions of the instrument. William
Taize, a wealthy merchant of Alpha,
died in 1901. Seven years before he
drew his will, distributing his estate
betv ei u his brother and nephews and
nieces. The latter were not satisfied
with the amount they were to receive
and they brought suit to have the will
set aside, holding that Taize was not
of sound mind when he made it. The
Only question before the jury for a de
rision was as to the mental condition
of Taize at the time he drew the will.
The jury held he was of sound mind.
W illiam Jackson and C. J. Searle, of
t.iis city, were engaged as attorneys in
the case, the former representing the
defense and the latter the contestjuits.
The case was heard before Judge F.
