Ruth Booten, claiming to be husband and
wife, were taken before Justice Hall
Saturday, charged with grand larceny.
The prosecuting witness is Louis Be
nor, who has his place of business on
East Second street. Friday night, so
he claims, the woman came in and
stated she had no place to go, and
asked him if she might rest awhile in
the rear room in his place. He gave
his consent, and thought no more of
the matter at the time. Some time
later the man came in and joined the
woman. He left soon and was shortly
followed by the woman. Benor then
became suspicious, and going to the
room they had left, found his money
missing. He thereupon swore out he
warrant for their arrest.
Old Resident Dies. Peter Quinn, one
of the earliest settlers of Scott county,
departed this life Saturday at his res

He was born in County (Jalway, Ire
land, in the year 1S34. He came to
this country on the 11th day of April,
1S4S, and has resided in Scott county
for over 5S years. He was married to
Honora Marinan here, and their union
was blest with 12 children, Mrs. Wil
liam Houar, Bettendorf; James Quinn,
Davenport; Mrs. James J. Kinnavey,
Mrs. James Kelly, George, Joseph, Har

Mrs. Gladell. There are also 13 grand
children living. His wife and all of

Spectacular Revelation. "Fighting
the Flames" is the name of the new
spectacle presented by the Adam Fore

season. This production is more elab

display ever offered by an amusement
enterprise. No circus in America has
canvas space enough to carry out its
multitude of sensational features.

space requisite to carry out the gigan
tic project, but they have more capital
at command, ami are known to be more
enterpr's'ng and progressive than any
other ci:c:s managenn ni. The scenery
depicts the natural dimensions and
architectural variety of the buildings
in a metropolitan city bl.ick. Such
mimic portraiture of imposing build
ings, animated streets, cultivated parks,
bustling mnrkt ta, moving cars, swirl
ing crowds, etc.. would be an impossi
bility to any show except Forepaugh
and Sells Brothers', because of 5ts
canvases covering more ground than
any two other big shows in the United
States. As a matter of fact, this spec
tacular production is immeasurably be
yond comparison with any previous at
tempt in arenic exhibitions. The stu
pendous teut was built for the purpose
of giving the greatest scope and grand
est effect to this venture. When one
remembers that the average theatrical
performance employs less than 20 peo
ple, and that the largest stage produc
tions in the greatest theatrical build
ings seldom involves more than 100
people and that this unique exhibition
"n the Forepaugh and Sells Brothers'
circus requires more than 1,000 people,
:he tremendous difference in size and
importance is plainly apparent. It is
ust 10 times bigger than the biggest
heater presentation and 50 times big
ger than the average.
