TWO FIRED AT A RABBIT

Albert Johnson, son of John O. John

Coal Valley and a nephew of Justit
O. Albert Johnson; of this city, was
badly injured in a hunting accident
near his home yesterday.
Young Johnson, who is 20 years o)
age, was hunting about a mile east of
his home with several companions
from Moline. About noon another
party was met and wiile all were to

a quick move on the part of every
body to get the first shot. Two of the
hunters were but a few feet behind
Young Johnson and their guns were
discharged at almcst the same instant.
One of the charges struck Johnson in
the right calf, but which one is not

In the excitement the injured la-.l
did not at first realize that he was seri

the. blood gushed forth in a stream
and. an examination was hastily made,
di&closing the fact that a large por
tion of the flesh of the leg had been
carried away, though neither of the
bones of the leg was broken.
With neckties and handkerchiefs
the companions of the injured man

Confusion of Call to Rinck Residence
Further Proof of Inadequacy
"Nineteenth" Was Mistaken for "Ninth"
Over Phone Shows Need of ,
the Automatic System.
Another evidence of the need of an
automatic fire alarm system in the
city was afforded last week by the
alarm turned from neighbors, summon
ing the department to the home of
John Rinck, Nineteenth street and
Eleventh avenue. Fortunately there
was no need for the services of the
department, but had there been a fire.
r. would certainly done great damage
before the department arrive, for
through the inaccuracy of the tele
phone, the firemen were hurried to
Ninth street, instead of Nineteenth
street, and over half an hour elapsed
before the correct location was learned
AiiloniHtle Syateni Merdrd.
While every encouragement should
be given the work now being done in
the extension of the police alarm sys
tem, the fact must be recognized that
the fire alarm system of the city can
not be efficient and adequate until a
system is installed which will elimin
ate the human voice and ear as agen
cies in the transmission of the alarm.
The ease with which auch figures as
and 30, 9 and 19, and like figures
which have similar sounds, are confus
ed when spoken over the telephone,
makes the. telephone an inefficient
means of transmitting a x fire alarm,
and every few days the department
has an experience like that of the call
to the Rinck residence.
linn No Keeoiirtie.
Speaking of the incident, Mr, Rinck
said: "Of course the services of the
department were not in this case re
quired. But had there been a fire in
my home, it would certainly have had
ample time to destroy almost the en
tire building before the arrival of the
department. Assuming that a prop
erty owner did not have his buildings
covered by insurance, he would have
absolutely no recourse, as far as I
know, in such a case. He would sim
ply have to pay the penalty and stand
the loss because of the failure of the
city to provide adequate protection for
him in the way of an alarm system. I
favor an. automatic system."
And Mr. Rinck is only one of a great
number who are of the same opinion.
It is time the matter should be given
