will not be prosecuted criminally. At
its recent meeting tne Henry county
grand jnry failed to indict the young
woman and her parents were allowed
to take her from the county.
No one from the vicinity of Wood
hull had expressed a desire that the
young woman be prosecuted. Not car
ing to let a matter of so- great import
ance go by ignored, however, State's
Attorney Charles E. Sturtz asked that
a number of witnesses be subpoenaed.
Rev. and Mrs. Waters of LaHarpe,
parents of the young woman, visited
Woodhull when their daughter had

Two Rock Island switch engines
sideswiped in the Silvis yards this
morning and caused injuries to three
men. Frank Hcffcrnan of this city,
employed as a switchman, had his
right foot cut off at the ankle, William
Henry, another switchman, sprained
his left ankle, and Charles Sherrill of
Silvis sprained his back, injured his
right aim and was rendered uncon
scious. The engines which figured in
the alTair were No. 132 and No. 131.
The men who were injured were on
the plank in front of the engines, and
when they saw the impending collision,
they jumped. Mr. Hcffernan was tak
en to the Moline city hospital, where
his foot was amputated. Following
closely, as it does, his bereavement by
the death of his brother, Mr. Ileffcr
ran's injury is the more unfortunate.
