PAIR VALUABLE HORSES
Animals Valued at $300 Each, Belong
ing to James S. Cross, Musca
tine Garden Farmer.
James S. Cross, who has a garden
farm a mile outside of Muscatine, and'
has been selling his products in Rock
Island and Davenport upwards of Se.
years, lost two valuable horses by poi
soning Saturday night.
There is an element of mystery ii
the deaths of the horses, which were
valued at $3uft and all the veter
inarians of the tri-cit:es iave been
called in in an effort to learn the char
acter of the poison. None of the doc
tors has been able to hazard more
than a theory on this point.
Mr. Cross, while in Davenport,
stabled bis horses on Perry street,
wheie he rented a stall room. He
refuses to beliee that any one woul.
Jr-liberaiely cause the taking of the
lives of the animals, for he has not
an enemy in the world that he knows
of. The horses were driven Saturday
afternoon, and were as well as usual.
One died at C and the other at '.
A MESSAGE TO THE POOR
Postal Directed to Mayor of Puna,
East India, Comes to Mayor.
In his mail of today Mayor William
McCVnochie received a postal care
that nas nearly encircled the globe.
Originally it was xsted at Lastau. in
Germany, and addressed to the mayor
of Puna, East India. After what ap
pears, judging by the conglomeration
of stamp marks on the face of tho.
postal, to have been a perilous journey
through the Indies, the card was re
turned to Lastau. It stated on the
card that the mayor of Puna was not
known. Th card came in an envil
ope to Mayor McConochie. Here it is:
Honorable Sir: Trusting to your
kindness I take the liberty to beg ou
for the favor, to present this report
to all the ioor and rich, young" and
old ("for we cannot but speak the
things which we have seen and
heard.") The sublime appearing of
our mighty Cod with holy angels from
heaven (a thin cloud of light mounted
several times opposite of the heaven

By all means according to 1 Tim. 6:1.1!
