BREAK IN BRIDGE
Large Boiler Koroute to Xew Araentl
Storehouse Bears Wheels
Through the Flooring.
TRAFFIC BLOCKED FOR A TIME
Big Wagon Sinks to Hubs Under Seven-ton
Weight Stringers arc
Cone to Decay.
A boiler weighing about seven tons,
which was being taken from the Grupe
boiler works in Davenport, yesterday
afternoon, to put in the new store
house at Hoik Island arsenal, proved
too heavy for the stringers of the Rock
Island bridge and as a result the
bridge will need considerable repair
ing. A gaping hole in the floor of the
center span is but one of the many
marks left by the wagon and its load.
The boiler is one of the four that the
Grupe boiler works is constructing for
the government and is claimed to he
as large as horizontal tube boilers are
made, the dimensions being 72x10. It
contains 2u 1-Inch flues and is so heavy
that the transfer company was forced
to furnish four horses in order to de
An immense wagon was used, and
unfort unately was too wide to use the
street car track, so the driver had to
monopolize the center of the bridge.
The Tri-City Transfer company di
rected the haul. Meanwhile all
traffic was stopped by order of
Lieut. Col. Blunt, and it remained so
until the difficulty was removed, con
suming nearly half an hour.
Tliitlt-r Arc Holten.
In is very probable that the supjiorts
of the flooring would have held the
weight had they been in proper condi
tion, hut where the wagon went
through the timbers were so rotten
that it is doubtful if they would have
held the weight of a horse. It is un
usual for such a bulky article to cross
the bridge but as it was for tho gov
ernment it was ordered to be delivered
that way in order to minimize to the
greatest extent the stime consumed.
IN A RUNAWAY AT DENVER
Dr. W. S. Block and Daughter of Port
Byron Have Exciting Experience.
Dr. V. S. Block and daughter. Mia.
Port Byron, bad a rather exciting ex
perience in Denver last Saturday, the
day of their departure for home after
a pleasant visit in that city.
They had been joined by Clarence
Stevens, and he procured a carriage
and was showing them the pleasant
sights. The time had arrived for them
to ko to the depot, and while on the
way they encountered some piles of
dirt along the curbing where repairs
to the street were in progress. In at
tempting to escape street cars that
were coming in opposite directions Un
horse became frightened and the bug
gy was run into one of the dirt piles,
j This overturned the vehicle and all
three occupants were thrown to t It
pavement. Fortunately Mr. Stevens
was able to control the horse until all
i were on their feet and free from the
carriage, but C:o piiircal left them at
tho first opportunity and dashed up an
alley, leaving a badly smashed buggy
against a telegraph pole.
None of the party was injured be
yond a bad shaking up, but the doctor
and Lila did not know the condition
of their host when they left louver
for they had just time enough to take
a street ear and catch the train. Mr.
Steven:; having departed very hur
riedly in pursuit of the frightened
Iiorj v. !! has written to them ::nc"
and tayc, he was not serious! v hurt.

HOW PRICES HAVE INCREASED
Paul Hennebcrg Points Out Facts as
Shown by U. S. Labor Bulletin.
Rock Island, Sept. ::. Editor Argus:
According to bulletin rl of the Fnited
states department of labor it takes
$149 to buy as much coal as $02 wouh;
buy ten years ago. It takes $1 1 S to
buy as much vegetables as $7S would
buy eight years ago. It takes $121 to
buy as much lumber and other building
material at $90 would buy seven years
ago. It takes $112 to buy'as much in
a drug store as ?7 would buy nine
years ago. In women's dress goods if
takes $lu; to buy as much as $S8
would buy seven years ago. And on
an average $li:; iu your pocket today
will not buy as much as $9 would
buy seven years ago. How is this for
the benevolent proi-perity which is
:o much wanted for the workers of
this country by the republican party?
It i a great convenience to have at
hand reliable remedies for use in cases
of accident, and for slight injuries and
ailments. A good liniment and one
that is fast becoming a favorite if nor

promptly to a cut. bruise or burn if
allays the pa'n and causes the injury
to heal in about one-third the time
usually required, and as it an anti

sures a quick recovery. For sale by
all leading druggists.
At midnight Thursday, the new
rules went into effect all over the Rock
Island system, and the local employes
of the road will bo governed by them
in the future. The new rules are said
to be a great, improvement over those
heretofore in use, and are simpler a ;
well. They relate principally to the
train order system and the semaph'U-!
system, both of which have been en
tirely revised and simplified. Now rules
have also been promulgated regard. m;
the governing of employes and their
duties, all of which is intended for the
betterment of the service and to re
duce the danger of wrecks and aeci
dents. The train dispatchers and those
who are rei-.pon-iti!" for orders to train
men, went to Des Moines to fate an
examination on the new rules.
A decided improvement in the air
brake has been adopted on the Rock
Island. In the past it has been neces
sary to signal the engineer to apply
the airbrakes, and in case of emergen
cy this was done by pulling on the bell
rope. However, tjiere was no provis
ion for applying the brakes If the engi
neer should fail to recognize or heed
the signal, but the airbrake is so ad
justed now that It can be applied by
tapping it from any part of the trnin.
