Buys Big Tract. One of the mos
important deals in real estate that
have been made recently was that
which was consumated when a deed
was filed in the office- of County Re
corded Like, by which the Lindsay &
I'helps company sells to Xathanial
French olock of Le Claire's sixth
addition. The property transferred is
ihe former retail lumber yard of the
Lindsay & Phelps company, occupied
by that company for some 153 years
with their office on the northwest cor
ner of the tract, at Third and Le
Claire streets. The tract extends
from Le Claire street to Farnam and
from Third street to the river roa.l
and while the southeast face of thi
tract is diagonal on account of the
course of the river, the property is
nearly a full city block in extent. Judg
French, when interviewed as to tb
probable use to which the block would
be put said that his plans were not
yet definite enough for a statement
The large manufacturing interests of
the family, close by. suggests that the
tract will ultimately be utilized for the
expansion of the big wheel works
plant, and its transfer certainly fore
casts its improvement in the not dis
tant future. It is one ot the very sat
isfactory details of the fall movement
of realty here.

Besides they possess more of the elements that build brain, bone and

that i hey av i 1 1 not attempt to tliwad
T. S. Silvis in his plans to build a
bridge over the creek ai Warner's
crossing if the new road is put in first

tlie commissioners attempted to move
the present steel road bridge to the
point where Mr. Silvis was going to
build the new sm et car road bridge.
Tlie bridge had been loosened from
the approaches and was ready for
transportation, when something hap
pened which the commissioners had
not anticipated. Mr. Silvis owns a
wooden blidgo that spans the creek
right at Warner's crossing and is used
by pedestrians going to Silvis. It is
said that the commissioners had plan
ned to use this bridge for a road
bridge, while they moved tlie steel
bridge. When Mr. Silvis heard of this
he sent workmen to the scene and in
a short space of time the bridge was
torn from its fastenings and hauled
awav. tJl course tins halted tlie com
missioners, and they were forced to
abandon the plan of moving the steel
bridge' and set about constructing a
temporary one over the creek. This
bridge was built Tuesday afternoon,
but is not considered strong enough to
insure wagon traffic. Whether Ihe
commissioners will continue with the
moving of the bridge remains to lie

night, with a team and covered wagon
which was heavily loaded with baled
hay, bran, and shelled corn. The tea'ii
had been stopped in front of a custom

side the wagon the team staited to go.
Mr. Doering hastily jumped to the
seat, but the top of the wagon
caught in a heavy branch overhead.
This served to frighten the team
which mad a lunge forward, but the
limb held the wagon. When the team
pulled forward it served to laise the
front end of the- wagon and Mr. Doer

from ihe fastening, and two of the
