Sheriff Heider has learned that
Tann formerly was a prisoner at the
lYmtiac reformatory, lie was paroled,
but no sooner had he been allowed
his freedom than he violated the con
ditions of his release. He turned up
in Uock Island and his first night in
the city entered the Marschall tailor
shop. Tann broke a pane of glass
and reached his hand in and removed
the clothes from hooks on which they

robbed Fritiof Wah lstrom of $2" and
Andrew Sporrey of $52. was arraigned

of both offenses. He told the court
that he desired to plead guilty and re
ceive his penalty, but Judge Gest. feel
ing that on account of his youth he
did not have a proper knowledge of
the law. declined to accept his plea,
and appointed G. A. Shallberg attorney

ILLINOIS WEEK AT THE FAIR
Plan to Take St. Louis By Storm Gains
Chicago. Sept. 27. The plan of
taking St. Ixmis by storm Illi
nois week. Oct. 3 to S, is gain
ing in favor. Chicago is especially
enthusiastic, and hopes with the aid of
others from different parts of the state
to make the attendance on Chicago
day, Oct. 7, exceed that even of St
Iuis day. Illinois week will be an
especially favorable time for Illinois
people to attend the fair. In the first
place, many special attractions have
been arranged, including fireworks
music by a number of famous bands,
speeches and processions, etc. Very
low rates have been made by railroads,
and they have promised to take care of
all who may attend. The Press club
of Chicago expects to go down in a
body, and will be met in St. Louis by
the famous government official Indian
band. A novel proposition has been
received by the Chicago day commit
tee from the Overland and Under Sea
Transportation company, which pro
poses to convey the members of the
committee to St. Ixmis by submarine
boat, and take them home on the air-
i ship "Meteor." The committee has es
J tablished a press and information bu
ireau in the Palmer house.
Springfield. 111.. Sept. 27. In a mes
sage directed to President Francis of
the world's fair at St. Ixuis Gov. Yates
has declined to approve the plan for
designating the coming week at the
world's fair as "Illinois week." His
declination is based upon the fact that
the state fair will be on in Springfield

ALL-STARS ARIETO PLAY HERE
Planning Game With the Independ
ents For Next Sunday.
There is to be a game, probably
two of them, between the Three-Eye
league All-Stars and the Rock Island
Independents this week. The former
team will include Pete Lister and Dan
ny Hupp, of Rock Island, Harry Stauf
fer and others of the Davenport club;
George Hughes of the Dubuque team;
Danny O'Leary and Peachie Graham.
Christy Wilson will likely pitch for
the Independents. The plan is to play
Saturday and Sunday, but if the boys
cannot get together by the former date
they will make sure of Sunday. Such
a game should attract a big crowd at
the Twelfth street park.
Howard Cassiboine, who was with
Rock Island and other Three-Eye teams
early in the past season, has a job
next year as manager of the Oska
lo.isa team in the Iowa league, the
place Red Donahue filled after Rock
Island released him.

FAIR THE BIGGEST
Illinois State Show, Which Begins
Thursday. Will Surpass
All Record 8.
DRAWING FROM ST. LOUIS
Many of Best Agricultural Exhibits
Come From Exposition Runs
Good weather for 10 days commenc
ing Thursday is all that Secretary V.
C. Garrard, of the state board of agri
culture, asks to make the 1904 state
fair at Springfield as great a success
as last year's record-breaker. Despite
the fear expressed by some people a
few weeks back, that the St. Ixmis
exposition will detract from the attend
ance, Secretary Garrard says the peo
ple will come in as great numbers as
last year if the weather remains favor
able. Nearly every department, and especi
ally the live stock classes, is profiting
by the close proximity of the world's
fair at St. Ixniis. The superintendent
of the be f classes department is puz
zling his brain to arrange accommo
dations for the animals that will be on
hand to compete for the ribbons, the
additional entries over last year com
ing direct from the big show at St.
Ixmis. And the same is true of other
departments in which the entries are
increased by exhibitors who have spent
the summer at the world's fair.
The entries in the speed department
are closed. Superintendent Madden
who is classifying the entries for pub
lication. says the list is greater than
last year, which was the banner up to
that time. Interest in the speed ring
events is enhanced by the fact that the
great pacer, Dan Patch, with a record
of l:50-i, ami the king of harness
racers, will try for a new record.
nl'nliir of Diivm.
Former state fairs have lasted
through but seven days, while the 19l
exhibition is to continue through 10

tinuing through Friday, Oct. 7. The

Thursday. Sept. 29 Exhibitors' day.
Friday. Sept. Ho Merchants' day.
Saturday. Oct. 1 Children's day.

A $35,000 Ring.
The most valuable ring in the world
is in the possession of one of our
very wealthy Xew York families. It
is set with a diamond valued at $35.
Oiio. The most valuable medicine for
all family ills is the famous Hostet
ter's Stomach Bitters. During its 50
years' experience before the public it
has been the means of saving much
suffering as well as heavy doctor's
bills, and on account of its wonderful
cures has been very appropriately
called the "sick man's friend." Don't
fail to try a bottle at once, especially
if you suffer from sick headache, sour
stomach, dizziness, dyspepsia, indiges
tion, constipation, biliousness, or ma
laria, fever and ague. It always cures.
Then sickly women in need of a tonic
and regulator will also find the Bitters
unequaled. For sale by all druggists.
