The 2-year-old child of G. Mart ell,!
employed in the harness department
at Rock Island arsenal and residing on
West Ixmbard street, in this city, lies
at Mercy hospital in a serious condi
tion which may terminate fatally at
any moment. Wednesday the child
secured a number of peanuts which it
put into its mouth. It swallowed one
of thfm which unfortunately lodged in
its windpipe and nearly caused the
little one to choke to death. The child
was taken to Mercy hospital, where
Ors. Fred Hender and I-ce Weber en
deavored to relieve the little one's suf
ferings by an operation. An incision
was made, but the physicians found
that the troublesome peanut had pass
ed from the windpipe into the lungs,
and they were unable to reach it there
on account of the delicate region in
which they were operating and the
under age of the child During the
time that the peanut was lodged in
the windpipe is caused a swelling of
the glands of the throat, and it was
found necessary to insert an aluminum
tube through which the child is at the
present time enabled to breathe. The
only hope that the attending physi
cians now entertain for the recovery
of their patient is that it will cough up
the offending article. Otherwise, it is
but a question of time until its lodg
ment in the lungs will cause an abscess
to form which would result fatally in
a very short time.
Attorney J. A. Hanley, one of the
members of the Scott county insane
commission, states that the cool
weather of the present summer has
proven very favorable to people with
weak minds and has been the means
of greatly lessening the number of
insanity cases in this city. For eight
weeks previous to the last two weeks
the local board did not have a single
case to try. In tbe last two weeks
they have had only two. At this sea
son of tho year the local authorities
usually have five or six cases a month.
The coo! weathr undoubtedly ac
counts for the favorable showing made
