BURGLARS ENTER A STORE
Small Amount of Booty Taken from
Burglars last night enteted the sro
eery store of Rogers & Co.. lUL'S Thir
tieth street, and made way with a small
quantity of cigars, tobacco, and sun
dries. A aniall amount of cadi, most
ly one-cent pieces, was taken, aud the
store ransacked. It was evident that
the burglar spent tonte time in tho
More. Entrance was gained by break
ing the glass lu the front door. This
Is the second time within a few months
that the store has been entered. From
the character of the goods taken it is
supposed that the culprits arc young
boys, who do not perhaps realize the
siriousness of the offense.

PLANS FOR ALARM
Council Hopes to Raise Money
for Fire System and
BY EMERGENCY ORDINANCE
Appropriate Extra Thousand for Long
View on Condition that Citi
zens Raise S 1,200.
Mayor McCaskrin last night submit
ted to the council a special message
prev.ous to the taking up of the ques
tion of appropriations for the vear. He
called attention to the needs of a new
truck for the fire department, a new
fire alarm system, a new engine, and
suitable quarters for the Fifth avenue
sewer pump. He recommended that a
small appropriation be made for a
stone pile where subjects of the police
ourt may be compelled to work, and
offered his opinion that 2.0ti0 is not
sufficient as the share of the TriCity
Railway company in completing the
new bridge across Rock river.
( wm witter or the Whole.
The council resolved itself into a
committee of the whole with Alderman
Sexton in the chair for the considera
tion of the appropriation resolution
and ordinance. Considerable time was
spent in a discussion of the mayor's
suggestions in his message, and the al
dermen all agreed that these things
would be good investments. The diffi
culty, however, was to find the money
necessary, and no action was taken.
Ou the suggestion of the mayor and
the city attorney, it was decided by the
council to let the matter go for the
present, but to take up later the Fifth
avenue sewer pump, the fire alarm
system and the new fire truck ques
tions, and if possible to provide for
these improvements under the emer
gency clause, securing the money
from next years' appropriations. On
the suggestion of the mayor, a special
fund of $ltit was set aside for the pur
pose of fumigation and combating cas
es of tuberculosis and other diseases.
The light fund was divided so that a
special fund of $100 was set aside for
the purpose of providing incandescent
lamps for lighting alleys where needed.
l.oa(il-w Kb Ira TkouMiind.
The appropriation of Sl,(Kn) under
the contingent provision. Tor Iing
View park, was made in order that the
park may secure the $5,000 required
for improvements this year. The city
fathers did not feel that the city funds
would stand for an appropriation of
$5,000 for the park, but were willing to
allow $3.S00 provided the total of $.r,.
Ooy can be reached In this way. The
proposition is to allow the park 2.Sm
under the regular appropriation, and
to allow the $1,000 contingent fund,
providing the citizens privately raise
$1,-00 for the park fund before October
1. In case the sum of $l,2l). Is not
raised by subscription before the date
named, the l.oi)u fttnd will go into the
street and alley fund, which is regard
ed as entirely inadequate to meet the
needs of the city.
Steps were taken toward completing
the paving in the district on which tho
Rock Island Sash & Door works facto
ry is located. The petition Is for pav
ing with brick Twenty-sixth street, be
tween Third and Fifth avenues. Third
avenue was paved last fall, and the
proposed paving for Twenty-sixth
street will greatly improve the com
pany's facilities. The company owns
nearly all of the frontage on the pro
Krey AwUtanl Chief.
Mayor McCaskrin. just at the close
of the session, announced the appoint
ment of Peter J. Frey as assistant
chief of the fire department. No other
appointments were made, the positions
of chief of the fire and police depart
ments being still left vacant. Mr
Frey's appointment - was confirmed
unanimously by the council.

With reference to the dangers in use
of explosives July 4. he called atten
tion to the lessening of the deaths
from lockjaw by publication of proper
manner of treating the cases. He says:
"The blank cartridge is the chief
danger and a wound from same re
quires especial attention by a physi
cian. Don't try to dress those wounds
yourself; a simple dressing is little
fetter than none. Attention to this
warning one year ago caused the large
reduction in lockjaw last year.
The appearance of a wound from a
blank cartridge wad is usually a small
clean-cut tear in the skin but they usu
ally extend far beyond the point of
entrance and especially beneath the
tough skin of the hand where most f
these injuries are received. Particles
of powder and dirt are spread beneath
the skin sometimes several inches
away from the site of the wound. Thus
it is that the simple dressing is not at
all effective and the poison not
