Diamond Jo Office Sold.
A deed was filed with the county re

and Jennie Morton, his wife, of Chica
go, convey to Roscoe B. Morton, of
Idaho Springs. Col., the property loca
ted in the original town, formerly
known as Steamboat block, for the
consideration of 91. The property is
located on the river bank between
Brady and Perry streets, and is 14Cx
2S tit in area. It contains the pres
ent Diamond Jo office and warehouse
and is a landmark on the Davenport
levee. The deed was made out in Ch5
cago and was sent here for filing and
for record. The propertj is valuable
and its alienation seems to preclude
any possible collection, on the part of
the plaintiff, of the Sl.Onu verdict given
in the case of P. W. McManus. adminis
trator of the estate of Ellsworth Leon

OtjSINATOt TIN FOIL SMOKER MCKAfiC
E. A. Eisner, charged with uttering
a forged instrument, was brought be
fore Justice Hall yesterday afternoon
for his preliminary hearing- Eisner Is
the man who forged the name or ms
brother-in-law. C. G. Palmer, to a check
for 98.60 and then had it cashed at the
Scott County Savings bank. At the
Dreliminary hearing the brother-in-law-
did some tall side-stepping to avoid
orosecutine his relative. He even went
so far as to make the amount good and
to nav the costs, after which the case
was dropped, and Eisner, by means of
the relenting qualities of his brother-
in-law, undoubtedly escaped serving a
term In the state prison.
Burke Waives Hearing.
Tom Burke, the individual-who stole
a team of horses from his employer.
John Hell, Jr.. was yesterday brought
before Justice Hall for his preliminary
hearing. The prisoner, through bis at
torney, C. T. Cooper, waived examina
tion and was bound over to the grand
jury. Being unable to furnish bail, he
was taken back to jail, where he will
spend New Year's day and considera
ble time thereafter, as the guest of
Sheriff McArthur. Burke is the man
who was given 93 by his employer and
sent across the river for a load of coal.
He "blowed" in the 95. sgld one of Mr.
Hell's horses to Charles Ostergrant, of
Moline, for 950. and traded the other
horse to J Schwartz, of Rock Island.
When arrested by Detective Kearney
in Moline Burke had $48.95 in his pock
eta. This sum was turned over to Mr.
Ostergrant to recompense him for the
amount he had paid for the stolen
horse and which was taken from him
and restored to its rightful owner.
$500 For a Parsonage.
A sign of prosperity at the Second
Presbyterian church is the turning
over to the officials of the church, this
week, of a check for 9500, which the
late Andrew Jack expressed the wish
should be set aside from his estate to
be applied toward the purchase of a
parsonage for the church.
Lifeboat That Cannot Upset.
A new lifeboat made of canvass and
capable of carrying 5,000 pounds was
gjven a test a short time ago before
government officials with most grati
fying results. The claim that it is
impossible to capsize this unique boat
was fully substantiated. The claim
that Hostetter's Stomach Bitters is the
best remedy before the public to cure
indigestion, dyspepsia, biliousness, con
stipation, nervousness, insomnia, liver
and kidney troubles, chills, colds or
malaria is being proven more conclu
sively every day. Hundreds of per
sons who had been experimenting
with various remedies, without suc
ces, have used the Bitters and will
ingly testify that it restored them to
good health. We hope yqu'll try it
today for your health's sake. For sale

and a gold ring bearing the initial "S."

locked up to give him time to get so

band ring, stamped "14k" on the in
