Mass., where his father wrote "Amer
ica," a private funeral service was

now resides there. There was no Ions
list of mourners, the widow and daugh
ter of the deceased and a few relatives
constituting all in attendance. The
interment which followed was at the
Newton cemetery, and thus the last
chapter in the life history of a man
whose career opened with brilliant
promise and closed in humility and
Eorrow, was yesterday ended. The
body arrived from Toronto late Mon
, Both Arms Broken. Ed Kay, a
young man residing with his mother
at 1311 LeClaire street, and employed
as a painter by W. H. Fluke, met with
a very painful accident during the
early evening while out buggy riding
with two other young men friends.
The horse shied at a piece of paper
and Mr. Kay was thrown from his
seat and struck the pavement in such
a manner as to break the bones of
both arms ' between the elbow and
Woman Burned to Death. Mrs.
John Martini, living . five miles west

sult of burns received in an explosion
of kerosene which she used to start
a fire in the kitchen stove at an early
hour. Mrs. Martini started the fire for

kerosene on the flames. The result
was the can of fluid caught fire and
exploded, igniting her clothes " and

Bettendorf Sewer Wins. There
was great jubilation in ' Bettendorf
Monday evening over the result of the
sewer election. The count developed
the fart that it wasn t much of a con
test, as the vote was 179 for sewers to
25 against.. The enthusiasm that foi
lewed the announcement of the figures
found vent in the ringing of hells,' the
firing of a few guns and a big bon
fire. Next Monday evening the Bet
tendorf council will hold an adjourned
meetine to discuss plans for the is
suance of the $28,000 bonds author

necessary to the establishment of the
Fisherman Slashed. William Mum
ford hetter known as "Shorty." a well
known fish peddler, about town, livin
in a house boat at the foot of Myrtle
street, was seriously injured late Mon
day afternoon in being stabbed in the
head and neck by John Allsopp. a coal
miner who has been in the city but
a few days. The stabbing occurred
during a quarrel and both sides give a
different story as to its origin. Mum
ford is now at St. Luke's hospital and
while his condition is serious, hopes
are entertained for his recovery. He
was slashed with a butcher knifo ami
the cuts are long and deep.
Had Counterfeits; Arrested. E. D.
Bushnell who claims to be the pub-
Usher of the "Counterfeit Detector," a
journal published in the interest of
bankers and others to keep them
posted on all counterfeit money and
protect them from receiving it at their
various banks, was arrested in the
Kaiserhof saloon on Front street just
west of the St. James hotel Monday
afternoon by Detective Ed Brehmer.
Bushnell who was intoxicated at the
time, was flashing a roll of counterfeit
money and offering to rell it at 50
cents on the dollar. When taken o
the station a bill book was found 'n
Bushnell's pocket containing $891 in
counterfeit money. He also had a
government permit to carry counter
feit monev in the interest of his busi
ness vocation. Each bill contained in
the book was stamped "counterfeit"
on both sides, so it. would have been
impossible to have passed it off on any
sane person. At the station, after
sobering up somewhat, Bushnell ad
mitted it, was an indiscreet act on hi3
part to display the counterfeit mon-;y
and attributed his rashness to his 'n-
toxicated condition. After matters
had been explained, he was released.

Costs More to Make
Than Oiker Whiskies
The annual whisky production of Kentucky is about
30,000,000 gallons, consisting of good, bad and in
different whiskies principally indifferent. By in
different, we mean whiskies used for making so-called
"blends" and concoctions, and usually sold by un
scrupulous dealers as "fine Kentucky whiskies." .The

using the original formula of 62 years ago, prohibits
the dealer from handling it for cheapening pur

in wood before being bottled in bond, which makes it
renowned as the best whisky Kentucky produces.
The Cedar Brook Distillery is in Anderson County
heart of the Blue Grass region home of fine whisky.
Cedar Brook is sold wherever good liquor is sold.

No Double Tracks. It is given out
officially that the Tri-City Railway &
Light company has decided to not lay
a double track on Fourth avenue, as
first proposed by it. G. O. Dietz, rep
resenting the merger company, stated
words to this effect. "You can say
that Mr. Porter has decided to relay
but the single track on Fourth ave
nue," said Mr.' Dietz. "and that within
a few days the bricks on Fourth ave
nue between Fourteenth and Fifteenth
streets will be relayed. Mr. Porter
will not allow more than $1 a yard to
the property owners as rebate, and as
that proposition has been turned down,
the single track will be relayed as pro
vided by the present franchise which
is held by the company. In view of
this, the petition now in the hands of
the council for an extension of fran
chise will probably be withdrawn.
However, Mr. Porter has gone east to
interview the stockholders of the mer
