fete well worth a long trip to witness, t)rney when asked &bout ,t Dr
blow your house up," was the tenor
of a black hand letter sent by some
one to Dr. -W. H. Blancke last week.
Dr. Blancke was away from home, at
tending a meeting: of the board of
trustees of Carthage college, and his
wife turned the letter over to his at-
provided the plans of the carnival
committee do'not miscarry, and the
work is carried energetically forward
as its importance deserves. The Com
mercial club, by its suggestions and
backing, has warranted a production
here which should enlist the coopera

George W. Noth of the carnival com

ing of Henry Von . Maur and R. R.
Englehart have, under the authority
of a meeting recently held at the
Commercial club, exercised great care
in appointing the members of the sub

finance for the carnival.
Sad Case in Court. One of the sad
dest and most shocking cases in the
history of the local juvenile court was
brought to the attention of Judge Bol
linger yesterday afternoon when a
golden haired 3-year-old child and a
bright 5-year-old lad were brought
into the court room accompanied by
their parents. 'They were in charge
of Probation Officer Henry Ditzen
and were charged with being neglect
ed children. The little girl, the very
picture of childish loveliness, was suf
fering from disease. The judge took
both children away from their parents
and until fur her orders from the
court ordered them placed in the

son, 1103 Main street, sexton at Grace
cathedral, returned to Davenport Sun

of the spectators of the terrible flood
which wrought devastation" in south

enough to, be one of the men who
were in the rrain between Santo and
Brazos which was hemmed in by
washouts for two days, with scarcely
anything to eat after all the provi

tales of the wrecks and wants which
have been created, and he says that
one cannot imagine the condition that
prevailed. He and Julius Ehlert of

Blancke demurred to any publication
or' the- incident. "If it has become
public, you can say that I paid no at
tention to it," said he. "Anyone who
would expect a minister to produce
$10,000 in a few days must be crazy
or a fool, .and the letter looked only
a little more foolish to us than lots
of threatening communications that
have been coming through the mails.'
Dr. Blancke was reelected president
of board of trustees of Carthage col

attending when the letter arrived at
his home. The board at this meeting
consummated plans to give Carthage

To Erect Big Building. The John
Deere - Plow company has let to the
Leonard Construction company of Chi
cago the contract for building its
Omaha, Neb., twin eight-story reinforc
ed concrete warehouses, each 132 feet
square. The award was made by the
board of directors at Moline. The cost
will be between $400,000 and $500,000.
The lot is 122 feet deep east and west,
with 264 feet, or frontage, north and
south, which would "be continuous ex
cept for a 20-foot alley through the
middle' of it. .But this alley gives value
to the property, for it has a railroad
track through it, and the portion next
to the buildings will be widened enough
to make it a double track, so tbat.in
cars can be unloaded from one and out
cars loaded on the other. The twin
warehouses- will be bridged across this
alley above the first floor, so that in
effect they are1' one great warehouse

and have landed in this locality.

the culmination of a variety of com
plaints as to his manner of filling the
office of inspector wfcich have been re
ceived by the mayor since last season.
The particular cause for his discharge
at this time was the discovery that a
sub-contract for, laying curb in connec
tion with the paving of Eighteenth
avenue was held by his son John.

How Walls Breathe.
Looking up at the ceiling of a mom
which is whitewashed or calcimineil
dark 6treaks can frequently b? detect
ed which at 'first glance seem to e-or
respoud with the stuipe r the lutfi
overhead. Those streaks tire so faint
oftentimes that t!y cannot be detect
ed unless against light background
Instead of revealing the shape of tu
lath, as people would at first suppose,
the streak outlines the space between
the laths, and this is the explanation
walls breathe. Through a newly plas
tered wall without decoration or cover
ing of any kind pass eight cubic feet of
nlr for each square yard of wall sur
face per hour. This naturally creates
a slight suction, and the air In passing
between the laths draws with it fine
particles of dust which are responsible
for the dark stripes across the cell
lag. The same breathing goes on
through the side walls, but these dark
strips are not noticed there for the rea
son that the greatest suction seems al
ways to be upward. Baltimore Sun.
