Rev. Charles A. Moore, pastor of the
Edwards Congregational church of Dav
fcuport, is lying at Si. Anthony's hospi
tal in a very serious anil critical con
dition as the result of a peculiar acci
dent 'which befell him last evening.
' The pastor, who is one of the best
linuwn and beloved of the Davenport
ministry, went to Mercy hospital in
Davennort yesterday evening to tali

confined there, lie was accompanied
to the hospital by his son, who left

About 9:30, while the board of edu
cation was meeting at the high school
tin inrs cny, a lauy mnue ner way iuiu
H. B. Hayden to call the ambulance to
take charge of an iold man whom she
had found lying in a semi-conscious
State on the sidewalk just east of the
Lincoln school building. The sufferer

Jady who discovered hhn decided at
once that his was no ordinary case.

and when he mumbled that he wanted
the ambulance called, she hurried lo
have it summoned. Mr. Hayden im
mediately telephoned for the ambu
lance, and then, In company with sev
eral of the 'board members, hurried
out to the corner where the man was
lying. A. F. Ewers, a member'of the
Davenport high school faculty, hap
pened to be meeting with the local
board, and he recognized the sufferer
at once as Rev. Moore, and saw to it
that the pastor's family was notified.
In the meantime Dr. S. B. Hall had
been summoned, and his immediate ar
rival is all that saved the life of Rev.
Moore, as he had been stricken sud
denly with a light stroke of apoplexy,
and in addition with a severe case of
exhaustion from the heat.
Cane In a Mystery.
How the .gentleman ever got ov;r
to this) side of the river, or what
he came for, is a deep mystery. It is
supposed that the heat affected him
after leaving Mercy hospital in Daven
port, and that he boarded a Bridge
line car instead of the . one which
would have taken him to his home. He
must have got off the car when it ar
rived at Twenty-second street, and
then walked south to Seventh avenue
before the final stroke which rendered
him helpless came over him. Had he
not received almost immediate assist
ance and medical attention, it
than likely that he would have died
within a very short time after the
stroke befell him. When he fell to the
sidewalk he bruised his light shoulder
severely; but the physician has no fear
that this will prove at all serious.

Dr. Hall called into consultation with
him Dr. Will F. Hunt of Davenport,

Design of New Penny Whose Coinage

The new Lincoln cent, the coinage of
which has been suspended by tue'oruer
of Secretary of the Treasury Mae
Veagh on account of the designers
Initials appearing prominently on tne
coin, is of the same -size as the fa
miliar "Juilian head" design. On the
face of the enny is n bust of Abra
ham Lincoln in profile facing toward
the right. Above the head is the mot
to "In iod We Trust," and to the left
of the figure the word "Liberty." In
the lower right baud corner is the date
On the reverse, the words "One
Cent" staud forth in bold type and
beneath them United Stales of Amer

of the coin is the motto "K Pluribus

stalks extend around the lettering, and
close to the base of the coin are the
artist's initials. "V. 1. B.." in minute
type. ' The circle of milled embossing
which runs around the face and re
verse of the old ienny Is alisent from

noteworthy for its simplicity of line.

CRIES OF SMALLEST MAN
ATTRACT MANAGER'S WIFE
Little Fellow Nearly Smothered
and Badly Scared but Re
vives, and Talks of Escape.
What is said to have been a delib
erate attempt to kidnap N'icholi. the
little Russian prince, who is being ex
hibited on the exposition grounds, oc
curred last evening about closing
time of the show. Mrs. Blitz, wife
of the manager of the Russian prince,
was startled to hear cries from the
midget, whom she had left standing
on the platform to get a little fresh
air after an arduous evening's per
formance at the exposition. When
she rushed to the front, it is said,
she spied a stranger dashing toward
the entrance. He had not gone far,
and as she could see nothing of the
prince, she supposed that he was con-
fined somewhere under the man's top
Afterward, it is said, this theory
was found "to be. correct, for the
prjnfe himself says he was. nearly
smothered in an inside pouch or
.pocket. His weak little voice could
scarcely be heard outside, and prob
! ably for that reason those who saw
the man hastening away thought
nothing of what was going on. Mrs
Blits called her husband, who was
near by, and together they hurried
to the entrance of the lot and headed
off the man. :
When they reached him he was In
the act of springing into nn auto
Mrs. Blitz caught hold of him and
held him fast, while her husband,
diving down into the bulging pocket,
extracted the midget. The stranger
broke Mrs. Blitz's hold and jumped
into the auto and soon 'disappeared
from sight. y
Mr. Blitz heard nothing further
of the man. A similar attempt was
made to steal the midget while he
was being exhibited in the west a
few weeks ago, but the scheme did
not come so near being successful
Mr. Blitz said( last night that he
thinks a party of showmen are
watching for the purpose of kidnap
ing the two-foot man for their own
Prince Nicholi, when seen last
night, said: "My, Oh my. but that
was a close shave. I was awful
scared when I was plunked down in
that man's pocket. It seemed like
being put into a bag. He got me in
head first and I was nearly smother
ed before I was able to wiggle around
and geton my feet. Even then it
was blamed uncomfortable, for the
fellow who had me kept running and
I was bumping against his legs. But
Daddy Blitz was Johnny at the rat
hole and here I am. Say. have you
got a Havana about you?"
Then the little fellow went to
smoking and sighed contentedly as
ha gazed at the people, passing down
the street. Mr. Blitz says that he is
personally responsible for the safety
of the little prince and he would not
lose hi ni In such a way for a large
sum of money. ? ,. ,?
