Baldeck Out of Penitentiary.
The parole of Eugene L. Baldeck,
the Davenport tailor who was convict
ed of the seduction of Katberine Dris
coll. and sentenced to three years at
bard labor at the Fort Madison peniten
tiary, is announced. Mr. Baldeck will
walk out of the penitentiay next Friday
a free man. and will return to this city
to engage in business. He will be upon
parole, and if he conducts himself
properly will be given an unconditional
pardon after six months. Since his in
carceration his friends have been work
ing hard for his parole, which has now
been announced. It is the common
opinion about town that Baldeck has
sufered sufficiently for his indiscre
tion. Loses One Eye.
Ernest Snyder of Dixon, the young
man who got a good part of a load of
shot in hia face, when out squirrel
hunting a few weeks ago. seems about
over his troubles. He will be wearing
an artificial eye. but the other one will
be saved, and although be has a num
ber of shot in his head, some of which
almost reached his brain, they seem to
have missed the localities where they
would have had more serious result,
and they have not started any trouble
yet. there is ground for the belief that
they will not in the future.
Says He Was Worsted.
Thomas Goldstone is today a sad
der but wiser man and it took a horse
trade to open his eyes. Mr. Goldstone
has entered suit in Justice Hall's court
in the sum of $100 aealnst B. R. Dor-
sey, which damages he claims by rea
son of being "soaked" in the purchase
of a horse. Goldstone alleges that Mr.
Dorsey represented the horse to him as
being perfectlj safe and sound and one
of the best animals of Its kind in the
whole of Scott county. Since securing
possesion of the animal for a cool $100
Mr. Goldstone now suspects It of being
afflicted with the heaves, glanders,
ringbone, spavin, pole-evil and distem

broken and at times becoming melan
choly and despondent. Mr. Goldstone
therefore seeks to have the trade an
nulled and be awarded damages in the
amount he paid for the poor old crit

Cote's OrMii lot Blast Stove
Investigate To-day. Even Heat Day and Night. Fire Never Out.
It is the most economical stove made for soft coal, slack or lignite coal, because it burns the gas half
of this fuel wasted up the chimney with all other stoves. Cuts the fuel bill in two.
It is the most economical hard coal stove made, and the best wood stove. 1st, because it has twice the
positive radiating surface of any hard coal stove. 2d, because it is air-tight, thus giving perfect control over a
hard coal or wood fire and insuring a slow, economical combustion. You get all the heat in your room.
We have told you much about Cole's Original Hot Blast. Please read the following letters telling
what others think of it.
FOR SOFT COAL
Agency, Iowa, November 24, 1903.
Colf. Mancfacttkino Co., Ckicagc, III.
Gentlemen. Your siove ii very satisfactory. I used a Round Oak for a number of years and noted the quantity
of coal used. I find your Hot Ilast will do the same service with at least one-half the coal. One year ago I used an
imitation Hot Blast which was not satisfactory, as it was not air-tight and could not be made so, hence would not
hold fire over night or keep a steady fire by day. Cole's Hot Blast ".s tight, and has kept fire for us for two nights
and a dav without attention, and blazed up on opening up the draft? ithout a fresh supply of fuel. The heat is
civen off regularly as you want it, and it is possible to maintain the temperature desired in the room.
Very truly jours. C. F. GoLTRY.
Cole Manufacturing Co., Chicago III. Montrose, Colo.
I think so highly of Cole's Hot Blast Stove that if I were without a heater I would not accept any other kind as
a gift if a Cole's heater could be purchased. The good points in favor of Cole's Hot Blast are first, the great econ-
my of fuel, and second, the ease and perfection with which the heat can be reguiatea. ,

What Three Ministers at Evansville Say of the Stove for Soft Coat
1. I. Simmons, Agent for Cole's Hot Blast, EransvtUe, Ind.
Dear Sir. Regarding the Cole's Hot Blast Stove purchased of you for our class room, I regard it as a re
w. u.. i.rnri it .- vinim and find it will do all vou claim. ad more. It has held fire three
i.J nights several times to my knowledge without attention, and is a great saver of fuel, easily regullted, giving uni
.:ni heat day and night. Yours truly, A. L. Bennett. Pastor Rf. K. Churth.
II. I. Simmons, Agent Jor Cole's Hot Blast, Evansville, Ind.
Dear Sir, We are greatly pleased with our Cole's Hot Blast Stove. We burned it last winter in a very
large room in the parsonage, and with the exception of once or twice the fire was not out the entiie winter.
The Hot Blast draft works perfectly, consumes gas and smoke and uses less coal than any stove I ever saw.
I can recommend Cole's Hot Blast to any of my friends. Yours truly,
Rev. F. Reller, Pastor St. PauTs Church, nth Ave. and MUhigan St.
H. I. Simmons. Agent, Cole's Hot Blast, Evansville, Ind.
Dear Sir, The two 12-inch Cole's Hot Blast Heaters I purchased for the Howell M. E. Church have been
verv satisfactorv. They hold fire 36 hours, giving a uniform heat with the least posstDie amount oi luei.
ery truly yours,
Rev. A. I). Bachelor, Pastor Howell M. E. Churth.

Cole's Hot Blast Messrs. Rosen burg & Wolf, Agents for Cole's ot Blast, aeioit, ins. ui, n , ..
- U ' J Gentlemen, I want to say a few words of praise for Cole's Original Hot Blast Su ve purchased of you several weeks ago. I noted
TOr nara VOai the broad and liberal guarantee on same by the makers for burning soft coal, and their claims that it would do better wou with hard
coal than any other stove manufactured. Upon that and your own recommendation I placed one in my home. I am burning hard coal, and to say the atove is
satisfactory is not enough. It is simply a surprise. I am saving one-half in fuel over the stove I formerly used to heat the same space, and getting a greater amount ot
heat It is the greatest stove I ever saw, and gives greater satisfaction and more heat with hard coal than a large base burner I am using in another part ot the house.
I cheerfully recommend Cole's Hot Blast as the most economical ana Dest heating stove tor nara coai x ever saw.

Death of Charles Alnsworth.
Heart failure caused the sudden
death at 6 o'clock last evening at his
home, 503 Nineteenth street, of
Charles R. Alnsworth, president of the
lumber firm of Dimock. Gould & Co.
Mr. Alnsworth was born in Williams
town, Vt.. Feb. 11. 1829. He came
west in 1848, settling in Rock Island,
where he was engaged in general mer
chandising with Judge Cornelius
Lynde. For a time he lived in Ed
gington, this county, and at Des
Moines, Iowa. They had their store on
First avenue. Mr. Alnsworth had serv
ed as a member of the Moline city
His marriage to Miss Mary Cook
took place in this city in 1852. He
leaves his widow, two daughters and
two sons: Miss Lucy Ainsworth, Mo
line, and Mrs. Stephen Velie, Kan
sas City, and C. P. and C. R. Ains
worth, of Moline.
Sues for Flag Stones.
Once upon a time Dr. A. H. Arp was
the possesor of a number of large flag
stones, which he had lying on the side
walk in front of his home. That was
before the sidewalk was fixed up.
When the pavers got to work he in
structed them, so he claims, that the
stones belonged to him, and that they
were not to be used. But, be claims,
the city officials instructed the men to
take them to the stone yard. This
was done, and the doctor's flag stones
got lost. As they cannot be found Dr,
Arp has brought suit against the city
to recover 40. which he states to be
the value of the stones.
Preaches First Sermon.
Rev. L. A. Johnston preached his
opening sermon in the Swedish Luth
eran church Sunday morning. The
church was packed with people, who
extended a welcome to the new pastor.
He expressed his gratification in be
ing selected to come to Moline and
have charge of this pastorate. He
hoped the people would learn to un
derstand him at the beginning, which
would make it much easier for him to
carry on the Christian work.
Lost Arm; May Die.
After sustaining injuries which in
all probability will prove fatal, Peter
Johnson, an orphan, said: "Oh, it
might as well have been my head, for
I have no one to take care of end no
one cares for me." These were his
words when the police picked him up
at Eighth street, where he had Just
been run over by a Buriington train.
He attempted to Jump off the Burling
ton west-bound train at Eighth street,
and slipped, his right arm being sev
ered from his body entirely by . the
wheels. He was taken to the hospitrl,
where Dr. A. H. Arp, Dr. L. D. Dunn
and Dr. Wessel amputated the shreds
of the arm. His Bhoulder and vital
parts were so seriously injured that ft
is almost Impossible for the man to
pull through. With a number of other
companions who ar employed at tho
Mutual Wheel company's he has been
in the habit of catching the train at
Fifteenth street and riding down to
Eighth street, where they would Jump
off, as the train does not go at full
speed at that point. He is 20 years
Stands Trip Well.
Word was received from Mayor C. l
Skinner to the effect that he arrived
safely at Tucson, Ariz., Sunday morn
ing. The train was late, but his honor
stood the trip well, and later in the
day took a walk about the city. He is
stopping at a hotel for the present,
but will soon arrange for, a residence
in the country, protmbly where be will
be able to be out of doors most of the
time. Mrs. Skinner and the children
also arrived at the end of the long
journey well and happy in the ai.tlelpa
tion of the speedy return to health of

Mrs. Caroline Peters, 427 Eighth
street, succumbed to an attack of asth
ma yesterday morning. For the past
30 years she had been troubled with
this disease, which finally caused her
demise. She was born in Germany
Jan. 8, 1835, and came to America in
1853, and settled in Albany, N. Y. Two
years later she was married to the late
John G. Peters, who answered death's
call 18 years ago. In 18C8 the family
moved to Moline, and have made this
