THE MOTHER'S PROBLEM
TALES TOLD ABOUT TOWN
Pays Over Corns Cash. John II.
Hauberg, trustee in bankruptcy of the
estate of John S. Corns, defaulting '
treasurer of township 17. has paid '
$5,100 to O. F. Anderson,"treasurer of
the schools of that township, as part
settlement of the claim of the schools :
against the Corns estate. It is under-'
stood that the Corns shortage amounts
to about $10,000. Mr. Hauberg paid'
over this money following instructions
received from Adair Pleasants, referee !
in bankruptcy. Whew notices of a'
dividend was esnt out, A. H. Kohler,
acting in behalf of other creditors,
filed objections on the grounds that
the school trustees of township 17
were given preference. Later he was
shown that the school trustees are
preferred creditors and his objections
were withdrawn. Mr. Hauberg retain
ed $500 which will be used to meet
any emergency expense that may arise
and pay the costs in ,the case. If at
the expiration of a year, any of this
money is left it will be paid to the
school treasurer. The school trustees
have not received the entire amount
due them and their prospects are not
the brightest for getting it. It is un
derstood that Miss Lila Fulsinger of
this city will turn over a house and lot
that belongs to her on Twenty-third
avenue to the referee in bankruptcy.
This property, it is said, was deeded
to Miss Fulsinger by Corns a few days
before he decamped for parts un
known. She is his sister-in-law.

his sweetheart went to one of th
agencies in Davenport and expressed

They were willing and for the next
three hours they were driven all
around the three cities. The next dav
