MR. KILLING LOSES
TO CONTINUE FIGHT
ON THE LOG THIEVES
THE ARGUS, THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 190.5.
It's Wise to
Be sure that it isn't expensive" economy. The
economical housewife, who keeps a watchful eye on
household expenses, knows from experience, that many
things that are cheap, are 'cheap" and that instead of
making a saving by buying them, because they are priced
low, she is the loser by doing so. This is especially true
in the grocery line. In order to practice true economy In
buying groceries, you must not only carefully compare
prices, but what is of as much importance, you must
look tv-tne. qalrt. It is this combination of low prices
and the highest possible quality that has so pleased the
many customers of this popular trading center and is re
sulting in much profit to them. Look over these prices
and try the combination. You'll be surprised.

No Liability for His Neighbor's
Cattle Crazing on His
RULING GIVEN BY JUDGE GEST
Plaintiff Sues to Recover $500 Dam
;, . ages from Rock Island
In the circuit-court this morning
Judge Gent ruled on the demurrer of
the Rock Island Railway company in
the suit of William Killing, of Coal
Valley, for "oo damages for the de
struction of pasturage, sustaining the
position of the defendant.
Mr. Killing is a fanner. The rail
road right of way passes through his
premises. There are two bridges over
which ihp railroad runs. , Lk-neaia wne
of these bridges the cattle belonging
to Mr. Killing and hirf neighbor had a
habit of visiting. When picking got
poor on tiie farm of Mr. Buchanan,
Mr. Killing's neighbor. Mr. Buchanan's
stock would wander over to Killing's
and get feed. Mr. Killing's stuck, not
to be cheated, would go elsewhere, and
it kept him busy tracing his cattle and
He asked the railroad company to
build fences under both bridges to
prevent the truancy of his stock and
that belonging to his neighbor. When
the railroad company told Mr. Killing
that there was no law requiring the
building of the fence, he instituted a
mandamus suit. Before this was heard
the railroad company, as a matter of
policy, to keep peace with Its neigh
bors. built the fences under the
Thereuiion Mr. Killing entered suit
for damages In the amount stated. The
contention of the railroad company,
which was represented at the hearing
by E. II. Stafford, was that no liability
was involved; that the law required
fences along the tracks only where
life was endangered by the absence of
the same. In the instances cited there
was no danger, as the tracks are eleva
ted so as to permit the passage of cat
tle under them. Mr. Killing was rep
resented by J. T. Kenworthy.

REMOVED FROM TRAIN HERE
Suffering With Consumption He is
Taken With Hemorrhage "
Rev. John Peterson tcolored). a suf
ferer with consumption, is at St. An
thony's hospital under the treatment
of Dr. C. T. Foster, the physician to
the poor. Mr. Peterson was seized
with a hemorrhage in a passenger
coach at the Rock Island Fifth ave
nue station last night on-the arrival
of the train, and was removed in the
city ambulance to the hospital.
The unfortunate man of the cloth is
50 years of age, and penniless. He has
been buffeted about the country by
the authorities, a city -where he hap
pens to be taken sick sending him on
his way as soon as he is able to travel.
His last stop was at Quincy. Fol
lowing an attack similar to the one
that he was taken with last night he
was placed in a hospital, remaining
there for over a week. When the
county physician ordered him dis
charged from the hospital he was sup
plied transportation to the next sta
tion. What cities he had been in be
tween Quincy and Rock Island was not
learned, but his ticket only read to
this city. Whether the minister has
a family or home is not known, as he
is too weak to tell his story.
Slur Here Will He llrlrf.
Dr. Foster said that Mr. Peterson
would probably be recovered so that
he can leave the hospital in a few
days. The county bears the expense
of caring for him here, and will pro
vide him with a railroad ticket when
he is able to move, as the other cities
have done, unless relatives or friends
come to his rescue.
