Rock Island was Lis next stop. He
called the other afternoon at the Heyer
meat market, on Second avenue, be
tween Fifteenth and Sixteenth streets.
He seemed in a great hurry, and need
ed for a half hour a saw and hammer.
The proprietor was out at the time,
and his wife loaned the articles asked
for. She was told by the man that
he was working at a house just a few
doors away, but had forgotten those
particular tools, and would return them
just as soon as he got through using
them. Of course he did not come back.
Carrie Away Whole Srt.
He called at a house on Fourth ave
nue, the home of a machinist, and was
allowed to take a set of tools valued
at 30. The wife of the owner did not
suspect anything wrong, as the man
did not have the appearance of a crook.
The police have reports from a num
ber of homes where he worked with
equal success, and have located some
of the missing property in the second
hand stores, where he disposed of it
at any figure that he was offered.

as 35 years of age. Intelligent in ap

BroRhn Other Vehicle.
The animal tore west on the avenue
at breakneck speed, barely missing
several vehicles enroute. Men rush
ed from the stores and homes and
threw up their arms in an effort to
slacken the pace of the horse, but
gave the latter a wide berth when
they saw that he was not to be in
terfered with, at least at that stage of
the proceedings. The three men in
the police station saw the horse as
he puffed through the block between
Sixteenth and Seventeenth street, and
hurriedly agreed on a plan of capture.
Officer Thode ran to the north side
of the avenue opposite the station,
Officer Pearson stationed himself in the

position In the middle of the avenue.
The alderman directed the attack,
and as the snorting animal reached

closed in, his hands waving and a
smile on his face that could not help
but have a reassuring effect on the

Pearson was to block the doorway,
corralling the horse about the neck in
the event of his endeavor to invade
the office. When Thode closed in
from the north side of the avenue, the
horse turned at an angle going straight
towards the entrance. Pearson braced
himself, expecting that he was due for
a wrestling match. Brooks followed
the head of the horse, and was on the
curb right in front of the door when
the animal put his feet forward to gain
the sidewalk. A hold on the bit strap
was secured that brought the horse
on his hind legs, and he fell back on
his fours on the pavement, and sur

to the wagon and the horse was not
