Forger Lost Out. F. C. Webster,
the clever check forger and swindler
who got the best of a number of the
leading merchants of the city lost out
by a narrow margin in securing $50
at the Fair store. Saturday morning
Webster entered the Fair store and
introduced himself. He bought a silk
shirt waist, for which he presented a
check in tho sum of $3.9X. He offered
to leave the waist at the store until
they bad secured, the money on the
check at the German Savings bank.
Later he returned and secured his pur
chase. In the afternoon he returnel
to the store and stated he wanted to
purchase a pair of ladies' hunting
boots. The firm informed him they did
not have any in stock and directed
him to another shoe store. In tho
evening Webster again called at the
Fair store and displayed the same fake
telegram, announcing the death of
James and the request for money,
that he had presented at the Boston
store and at St. Onge's. He also show
ed his bank book and asked the; firm
it they would advance him $i0 on a
check. They agreed to do so and the
cashier was engaged in counting the
money when the two proprietors, M.

became suspicions and held back their

lied in his room over the.Silver Moon
restaurant, 323 East Second street,
yesterday morning. "Blind Billy" Mor
ey, who roomed next to him, heard
Miller moaning during the night, and
in the morning called V. P. Ketelsen,
a saloon keeper on the ground floor,
who went upstairs and helped unlock
the door. Miller was in a sitting posi
tion on the floor, held up by a young
woman known as Miss Esther of 221
East Front street. Ketelsen found Mil
ler was already dead, and helped place
the body on the bed. He also summon
ed Dr. French and an undertaker. Dr.
French says Miller had been suffering
from acute rheumatism, and had been
in the hospital twice. The malady had
undoubtedly reached his heart.
Mrs. Fannie Adelaide Davis died
Wednesday evening at her home, 1621
Prosper street. She was born in Bir

The end came peacefully to Ludolph
Grabbe, the well known barber, yes

methodical, many speak of his death
with genuine regret.

Plans Water Supply. Improvement
which contemplate a complete water
works and sewage system for Silvis
will be carried, out next spring if the
village board finds itself able to finance
the work. H. G. Paddock, former citv
engineer here, has been, engaged to
make preliminary surveys and submit,
an estimate on the cost of the improv i
ment and he has already outlined the
general scheme for the system. Silvis
is not so fortunate as East Moiine in
possessing an artesian well, but the
probability is the situation as to water
supply will be met by sinking a weil
and installing a standpipe and pump
ing station. An expensive pumping
station and a long stretch 'of main:;
would be required if water vere,.to b'-'
pipea rrom the river, and Silvis resi
dents would hardly find the raw liqui
from the Mississippi river satisfactory.
A filter plant would be necessary if
the plan to take water from the river
were followed. The present plans un
oer eonsiueration call for a pumping
station and a standpipe on the brow
of the bluff between Eighth and Ninth
streets. Plans for the water supply
are still in embryo, and whether Mr.
Paddock will be able to develop a weM
of sufficient flow to meet the demand
is a question.

Mrs. James O'Brien of 371.) Hillside,
avenue, Cincinnati, writes: "My hus
band has had a very bad stomach for
eight or ten years and has a cough.
lJoctored by several good doctors, to
no effect. He has been taking Father
John's Medicine for about nine month
and to our astonishment his trouble
has completely disappeared. My hus
band is a railroad man and is subject
ed to all sorts of weather, day and
night. If he should get wet or even
work long hours, before he lies down
he has to have his Father John's. Also
I have two boys that have more confi
dence in this medicine than anything
in the drug store. If thy have a
cough, cold, or even if they feel a
little out of sorts, the only comfort
they have is Father John's Medicine.
When they went to school last winte-,
as soon as they came home they would
say, 'I don't feel good, mamma, you
must give us some Father John's Medi
cine tonight.' You are perfectly wel
come to publish anything in regard to
the medicine, as far as my family an I
myself are concerned; we cannot spea
too highly of it." (Signed.) Mrs.
