Anna Eva Fay at Grand. Those
who recall the mystifying Anna Eva
Fay, whose performances in mind

"Somnolency." have become world re

engagement at the Grand opera house
all this week. She has occult powers
that enable her to see, and do, things
that are miraculous to others witness

Many take an occasional eigaret and a

cast of principals and a chorus of near

Messrs. Shubert. The piece played
for more than two years at the Lyric
theater in London, and was an em

the Illinois theater is indeed fortunate
in securing such an excellent offering
for his playhouse. It is doubtful if an
other play of such magnitude will be

beautifully staged and Mrs. Ryan's
great story is well carried out. The

Boy Pushed Under Car. A playful
push, the result of which was anything
but a joke, caused little Albert Hamp
ton to fall under the wheels of a mov
lng freight train Saturday, injuring
him so badly thai, his right leg was am
putated at St. Luke's hospital an hour
later by County Physician Barewald
The little sufferer, who is only 11 years
old, maintains that he was pushed un
der the wheels, but stolidly refuses to
give the name of the playmate whose
criminal thoughtlessness was responsi
ble for tle loss of Albert's leg, if not
his life. Albert, who is a son of John
V. and Margaret M. Hampton, residing
at 1452 West Second street, was out
on the right of way of the Rock Island
road, in the neigh borhood of the glu
cose works, picking up coal and plac
ing it in a basket, which he carried
Several other lads were with him.. A
switch engine was switching freight
cars near where the lads were.and with
a recklessness of action that comes
from familiarity with the trains, he
even reached under the rolling cars,
which were moving slowly, for lumps
of coal. It was while at this act that
a playmate gave him a thoughtless
push. Albert tried hard to regain his
balance, but failed. He slipped so that
his right leg rested lengthwise on the
rail, his body being parallel with the
car. Instantly the cruel wheel was
upon him and the leg was crushed from
above the knee to the foot.
Stole Valuable Furs. Some time Fri
day night burglars entered the sample
room of the St. James hotel, located on
Main street, directly across the alley
from the hotel proper, and stole some
where in the neighborhood of 50 pieces
of furs, mostly boas and collarettes.
These were the samples being carried
by Charles Breslau, representing a
large New York house. When seen by
a newspaper representative at the ho
tel, Mr. Breslau refused to place a val
uation on the stolen goods, but remark
ed that it would amount to several hun
March to Clinton. A score of young
turners marched to Clinton yesterday,
arriving about 11 o'clock. They left
their headquarters In Turner hall Sat
urday night at 10:30 o'clock, and march
ed through the city to East Davenport
Turner hall, enlivening the night with
the music of a fife and drum. These
they left at the east end hall, where
they were joined by a like number of
others, and the march was continued.
At Shftffton they were met by the Clin
ton Turners, and the whole lmrty fin
ished the march together.
Charged With Embezzlement. Hen
ry Henchen, a driver for the Schick
company, was arrested by Officer Wend-
hausen. on a warrant issued in Justice
Roddewig's court, charging him with
larceny by embezzlement. The de
fendant is charged with collecting
something over $25 and failing to turn
it in to his employers.
Near 50,000 Mark. Davenport's
growth in recent years is shown by
the growth of the Stone city directory.
H. N. Stone, the directory publisher,
announces that the book will soon be

the names it contains shows 24.5S6 for
Davenport and its immediate suburbs
such as Bettendorf and Fishertown.
Directory men usually use 2 as a mul
tiplier to get the actual population, and
the conservative Mr. Stone in former
years has used 2Vi. This year, using
2 as the multiplier, would give Daven
