In the case of Christopher Harms

an objection to having the case dis
missed. He is the man who is suing
for $300 damages because of being

missal were null and void.
George Pierce, residing at 417 East
Sixth street and employed at the plant
of the Bettendorf Axle works, was
quite painfully injured Wednesday af

the truck wagons belonging to the
company. At the time Mr. Pierce was
assisting the driver, John Van Dyke,
in transporting a load of steel. The
wagon, as it was crossing the tracks
of the Davenport & Suburban com
pany on East Fourth street, slid upon
the steel rails and suddenly gave a
lurch in leaving them. Mr. Pierce was
thrown from the wagon to the brick
pavement. He suffered a deep gash in
the forehead and a fracture of the Uft
arm. His injuries were attended to
by Dr. W. L. Allen.

Amelia Sturm, through her attorney,
C. Hall, has entered a suit for a di
vorce against her husband, Josepn
Sturm, whom she married at Marshall-
town in November, 1901. She makes
drunkenness the ground of her action,
and makes the startling allegation that
her husband was in a sad state of in
toxication from Aug. 1, 1903 to June 1.
1904, being drunk for nearly every
day of that time. The wife also al
leges that her husband cruelly beat
and abused her so that she is in dan
ger of her life. At times, she alleges,
he did not give her proper support
although he is employed at the Glucose
plant and has an earning capacity of
$45 a month. No children have been
born to the mismated couple. The
wife asks $500 and permanent alimony
at $20 per month together with a de
cree separating her from her husband.
Wallace Moody, who is at present
occupied with plans for the forthcom
ing production of his opera, "The
Chauffeur," is home from Chicago for
a week's vacation. It was expected.
Mr. Moody states, that the piece would
make its debut early in September,
but owing to a change in bookings in
favor of some of the stellar theatrical
attractions who were shut out of Chi
cago last winter by the summary clos
ing of theatres, a delay of some weeks
beyond the time originally planned is
necessitated. In line with the theatri
cal syndicate's policy of reserving in
formation on new productions until
dates may be announced, Mr. Moody is
unable to say more than that a satis
factory cast has been provided. The
principal comedian and the leading so
piano are now playing short time con
tracts with temporary revivals, the re
mainder of the cast having their parts
in hand. Mr. Moody is engaged for
the tenor role and will be with the
piece during its career in the west
Should it meet with anticipated sue
cess he will leave the company upon
its departure for the east, returning
to Davenport to finish a new opera
upon which he is already engaged.
Again the annexation of certain ter
ritory known as Smith & White s ad
dition. White's addition, Moline Heights
addition. Park Ridge and Lincoln
Heights in South Moline, is being
broached and it is to be hoped that this
time it will be a success. This is the
third time that the movement has been
put on foot and it may p.ove to be the
charm" which, however, remains tu
be seen. For the past week a petition
has been circulated among the pro
perty holders in the various named ad
ditions, and it seems that it has met
with general favor. The promoters
are very much encouraged over the
movement and are confident that if
will carry this time.

C. Arthur Brown, the chemist from
Chicago, has arrived in the city and is
conducting a third test of the water of
the filter plant. Mr. Brown, like the
other chemists who have seen- this
plant, speaks very highly of it and
thinks the water to be very good. He
came here from Danviille, 111., where
he has been conducting a test of the
same kind. Miss Louise Dewey, an ex
pert bacteriologist from Urbajia, is
with him and after the test is com
pleted here, she will make a compari
son of this water with the water
drank at Danville.
Public school teachers of the city are
going to get better acquainted with

day after school and the plans were
made for the affair. The teachers will
leave about 3 p. m. and take supper at
the island, returning in the evening.
Prof. White was made a committee

will take basket suppers, others will
depend upon the resort restaurant.
They say there is a veritable free
vaudeville show in the vicinity of Six
teenth street and Ninth avenue, but
there are so many sides to the incident
that it would take a column or more to
explain it. Since Sixteenth street was
paved there has been more or less
trouble over a small triangular spot
deeded to the city by C. S. Candee for
park purposes at Sixteenth street and
Ninth avenue. Certain property hold
ers want a sidewalk cut through, in
line with the east Sixteenth street
sidewalk, that is a continuation south
of that sidewalk from Eighth avenue.

way to Madison. Wis., where he has
relatives. He is suffering from a can
