Mr. Bruchmann were mad? permanent
in the district court yesterday.
Not the Dow Launch. Upon closer
investigation it was found that the
launch reported found by the Keokuk
police was not the one stolen from
Worrell Dow of this city. The launch
that the Keokuk authorities first stated
resembled the description of the miss
ing Davenport craft was in the Des
Moines river, about Go miles from
Keokuk. The name plate showin
that the launch was the Priscilla was
found in the boat.' bavins been re
moved during repairs, it was ex
plained by the man in charge.
Wife Brutally Beaten. A story of
brutality that eclipses anything taat
has, come under the notice of the po
lice department in months is revealed
in the arrest of William Burke for
horsewhipping his wife. Burke has
been in police court before for abusing
his wife, but he never v.ent to the
extremes that he did in this case
Mrs. Burke, in order to prcve the seri
ousness of the assault made upon her
called on S. F. Baw3en, assistant
county attorney, and isked that her
body be examined. Mr. Bawden sum
moned Dr. Ben Schmidt, and the lat
ter reported that the woman's back
was covered with abrasions raised by
the welts of the whip, r.nd that the
effects of the beating wore even more
serious than she represented. Mrs
Burke said that she was attacked
while she was sitting in her home
nursing her baby. She said that Burke
approached her holding the whip
above his head, and when she did not
gle him a satisfactory answer to
soifte question he isked her' he
brought- the whip down upon her re-!
peatedly, giving no heed to her pleas
to spare her further suffering. She
was barely able to move for a whole
day after she was whipped. Burke
has not had his hearing yet.
House Is Ransacked. Boys in the
neighborhood noticed a broken win
dow off the kitchen porch at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. G. A. Hanssen
on Rusholme street Sunday, afternoon
a-nd when relatives were notified and
opened the house a strange scene of
disarray greeted their eyes. The
house had been ransaciied from top
to bottom by burglars, who had left
numerous burned matches on their
trail as they went from room to room.
Villing open bureau drawers, pulling
out each article they contained in the
course of a- search for valuables, and
leaving them strewn over the floors.
Locks of doors and drawers had been
ruthlessly broken where necessary
and some unnecesary damage had
been done. Just what the family left
in the house that was worth taking
is not known, but that the burglars
left nothing that was worth carrying
off is plain.

Mattie Burns, ' 819 Brady street, re
siding in the J. C. Tilton home, has
been entrusted with the responsibility
of caring for Mrs. Ma.-y Smith, the
insane patient who has been so prom
inently before the public oi late. Mrs.
Smith was declared of impound mind

commissioners and committed to the
insane department at Mercy hospital.

daring piece of burglary was perpe
trated Sunday night at the home of
Jonn Kosgard, 517 Main street, direct

o'clock Sunday night. When he arose
in the morning he discovered his
trousers, which he had hung up in the
room, to be missing. -In a wallet in

A search resulted in the trousers,
with the wallet and money missing,
