Ji ROCK 13
Fighting "booze1 did not satisfy the
pugilistic instincts of A. H. Clarke, an
employe on one of the steam' shovels
which is atTwork on th" Rock Island
Southern right of way, and he hunted
bigger game last night and this morn
ing, and as a result ho is in jail.
Clarke came into town yesterday after
noon and proceeded 'to lay in enough
firewater to last hi.n through another
Epell of hard work. He got outside of
about $11 worth, or at least he spent
that muen money during the evening.
He Ftolo an overcoat from H. H. Pol
lock, it is charged. This morning h
tanked up some more and got into an
argument with a bartender, during
which he received a bump on the loft
eye which made him feel sick. How
ever, he was "too much of a gentle
man," he said, "to fight wit.i the bar
tender," so he got out of the saloon.
Mnke Strong Talk.
Soon afterwards he was arrested on
a warrant charging him with larceny
of an overcoat, and at the station, lie
put up in argument to ihc pjlioe offi
cers telling them what a fine fellow
he was nr.d4h.Qw ho was noh n thief
and never would be. His pleading wa
of no avail, however, and he was
locked up in order ; to ;give him , a;
chance to get sober. ....... .. . j
