Last Injunction Case Disposed Of.
The last of the bunch of 11 Injunctions

A ell dressed woman of about 25
years of age caused no little excite
ment on the bridge line about 11:30
o'clock Sunday night by jumping off
the car backward and striking on her
head. She had told the conductor of
Ihe car that she had taken it by mis
take, as it had" been her intention of
taking the Fourth avenue car to Mo-
line. "Without asking him to stop the
car or sounding the bell, she hurried
to the rear platform and jumped, off.
She was heard to strike, and the cou
ductor and 'others went to her assist-

Sponge Case Again on Trial. The
retrial of the $50,000 damage case of
Mrs. Annie Arn. administrator of the
estate of her deceased husband,v Jo
hannes Arp, vs. Dr. A. L. Hageboeck,
Dr. J. T. Haller and Dr. J. II. Meyhaus,
was begun in the district court yester
day before Judge Barker, with all
three defendants present in the court
room. Mrs. Arp is suing the three de
fendant doctors' on the allegation that
at the time they performed an opera
tion on her husband, they left a piece
of gauze, otherwise .styled a surgeon's
sponge, in the wound, and that later
this caused an abscess which eventu
ally resulted in death. At the former
trial of the case the jury disagreed
and were discharged without a verdict.
At that time Dr. Meyhaus had the case
dismissed as to hira after the introduc
tion of the evidence of the plaintiff. A
motion was filed in connection with
the present trial to again hafve Dr. Mey
haus released as one of the defendants
on the allegation that at the former
trial it was shown he had no responsi
ouity m connection with the opera
tion on Mr. Arp. Judge Barker an
nounced he would take up this motion
and decide it some time during the
Why Overheat Yourself?,
Much of your summer rTTTj

It's a wonder.
Does the work of your big

has this great advantage over it, that it never heats the kitchen. The

makes summer days endurable. Think of pre
paring a meal in less time than you'd do it on
the coal range, and then sitting down at table
with the family not overheated, but entirely

the prosecution has again been produced.

Through the generosity ' of the class

its legacy to the school. A handsome
bronze tablet backed by a slab of blue
marble has been received and is to.
be placed in the assembly room. It
measures 12xl&V6 inches. This hand

Firit Big Boat Lands. For the first
time .in a great many years the resi
dents of Moline were startled at hear
ing the whistle of one of the larger
steamboats yesterday afternoon, when
the steamer Columbia tied up at the
foot of Sixteenth street. The steam
boat was a welcome guest and a num
ber of people who were down town
went to the river bank to take a look
at the boat. -'for indeed it is quite a
sight to see one of these. boats in the
Moline port. It is the first of the
larger boats to make the trip through
the locks and this' was done with just
a silgnt accident to tne uoat. wnen
the boat swung into the lock it was
carried against the shore and some
minor damage inflicted.
- Arrest Crap Shooters. In the dan
light afforded by a kerosene lamp
four young men whiled away the early
hours of yesterday in a small room
of a building on Second avenue shoot
ing craps. It was not a real high
toned game, as is seen in a large
gambling house, but was in the nature
of a levee game, for the bones were
rolled upon the Moor with an occa
sional "come seben," "come leben,"
from an excited player. The hands
of the clock pointed to 2:45 a. m.
when a couple of officers dropped into
the place and arrested the party.
Those caught were Frank Donahoo,
J. G. Eckman, William Tiedeman and
J H. Ritchie, colored. It was though;
best to break up the game for the
boys were losing: entirely too much
