. Wanderera Arrested After Long
Journey. Hamlin Hlnes of Moorcroft,
j"Wyo. .and Paul Sims of Sioux City,
two juvenil wanderers about 15 years
of age, were taken In by the police
Thursday night after their destitute
'case had been called to their atten
tion by the officers of the Salvation
lArnay, at which place the boys had ap
plied for food. "When brought to the
station both boys admitted that they
had been on the road for the past week,
leaving Sioux City last Thursday and
tramping almost the entire distance
.between that city and Davenport. The
'liardshlps that they met with did not
deter them in their desire to get away
from home and to see the world, and
only their application for food here
brought about their . detention. Word
,was immediately sent to the authori
ties at both Sioux City and .Moorcrof t,
iancT answers fronj those-' two cities
IbrOught word that the boys should be
held until the arrival of their parents.
' : Requisition for Fugitive. John
: Cleveland, sometimes traveling under
? the non-de-plume of William Johnson,
" "v.Tio was arrested Friday by the police
upon information received here from
J. Murphy, warden of the Joliet state
prison, that hje was a parole violator,
refuses to return to the prison officials
without requisition papers, and these
..will npw have to be secured-before he
can be taken back to answer to the
charges brought against him, When
the police, received the telegram no
tifying them that Cleveland was want
. ed by the Joliet authorities, Detectives
Bishop and Jessen were detailed on
the search for him and he was landed
at his home on Harrison street. Cleve-
land was in the local courts only a few
Uays ago, when his newly found bride,
ilarie Cleveland, preferred a charge
against him for threatening to kill her
and otherwise treating , her cruelly.
She stated to the court at the hearing
that her - husband : had . refused her
money with which to purchase articles,
and that he said he would cut her up
Into pieces and throw her under the
ice. At that time she refused to have
anything more to do with her spouse,
and left the station strongly denounc
ing him, although he dogged her foot
steps for several blocks. It seems that
they eventually made up, for they were
living together when Cleveland was
placed under arreBt. Friday 6he ap
peared at the station and asked to be
granted an interview with her hus
band and indicated in every act that
she now Intends to stand by him In
his new straits.
Eight-Story Office Building! The fil
ing of a mortgage for $60,000 on the
South Putnam building at the court
house yesterday afternoon shows that
Davenport's office-building program for
the year 1910 is going to make good.
The mortgage was filed by F. C. Fish
er of Cedar Rapids, special loan agent
for the eastern part of Iowa for the
Northwestern-Mutual Life Insurance
company. It : means that the project
of Davenport's most modern fireproof
office building has been financed, just
as it was expected that it would be,
and that the month of February will
probably see bids received on the
! building and the contract let, so that
! work can bo commenced promptly after
March 1, when the leases on the west
ern portion of the Nortfc Putnam build
ing, involved In the building opera
tions, will terminate. The plans for
rebuilding the entire North Putnam
building have been drawn by Burnham,
the noted Chicago architect. They in
of the block will commence at the Main
skeleton buildings on both the Main
and Brady street corners, and a con
necting block between them five and
six stories in height. The rebuilding
o fthe block will commence at the Main
street end, with the erection of the
eight-story block there this year, ac
cording to the present prospects, of
which the filing of yesterday's mort
gage was pretty good evidence. The

Velie Buys Five Acre Tract. Pur
chase of a five and one-half tract of
land on the river front east of and ad
joining the 11 acre tract owned by tho
C. H. Deere estate, has been effected
by W. L. Velia through his agents.
The ground in question is bought
from C. R. Stephens and the purchase
price is understood to approximate
$15,000. Mr. Velie is et the present
time In Fort Myers, Fla., with his fam
ily, and the use to which he will put
this ground cannot be learned. There
are several rumors of plans for Imme
diate use of the tract, but none of them
has been substantiated. There has
been, a rumor that Mr. Velie Is con
templating erection of an auxiliary
plant to his automobile factory, in
which will be manufactured motor car
parts now purchased. The rumor,
generally, is not credited. Deere &
Co. recently purchased the athletic
field site a tract of nine acres on the
river front, beginning at Twenty
seventh street. East of and adjoining
this tract is the 11 acre tract held by
the Deere estate. The ground just
purchased by Mr. Velie is to the east
of the 11 acre tract. This gives nearly
26 acres of land all in one piece
that is held by Deere & Co., the Deere
estate and Mr. Velie, all closely allied.
Though. Deere & Co. officials deny that
they had knowledge of tho transfer
of the property, it Is the generally ac
cepted belief that the entire tract will
be utilized to the best interests of the

THE PUMA AND ITS PREY,
Ease With Which Patagonian Lion
Kiilsd a Celt.
The puma Is so foud of horsefiesh
that In Patagonia it l3vditticult to
breed horses, as the colts are killed by
this American lion. A native told the
author of "The Naturalist In Lo
Plata" that on one occasion while
driving his horses home through a
thicket a puma sprang out of the
bushes to the back of a colt following
behind the troop.
The puma alighted directly on the
colt's back, with one fore foot grasping
its shoulder, while with the other It
seized the head and, giving It a violent
wrench, dislocated the neck. The COlt
fell to the earth as If shot.
Next to horseflesh, the puma prefers
mutton. He does not like veal, al
though he will kill a calf upon occa
sion. A cunning puuia which on cloudy
nights raided a sheep ranch used as a
place of concealment the pen where a
dozen calves were kept while It wm
waiting to attack the sheep, but it did
not Injure n calf.
Pigs when in large herds defy the
puma by massing themselves together
and presenting a serried line of tusks.
The ass also resists successfully the
puma's attack. When assaulted It
thrusts Its head between Its fore legs
and kicks violently until the puma Is
driven or thrown off.
One day an Indian while riding saw
a young cow watching his -approach.
Her manner showed that It was In a
state of dangerous excitement, and the
Indian conjectured that some beast of
prey had killed its-cair. He began
searching for the calf's body. While
thus engaged the cow , repeatedly
charged him. Presently he discovered
the calf lying dead among the long
grass and by its side a dead puma with
a large wound just behind the shoul
der. The calf bad been killed by the
puma, for its throat showed the
wounds of large teeth. The cow had
driven one of its long, sharp borns Into
the puma's side while- It was sacking
the calf's blood.

We frequently hear the expression
"God bless yon!" uttered after some
one has sneezed. The expression. If
we can believe Clodd in bis "Child

time of Jacob. We are told In Jewish
literature that previous to bis time
men sneezed but once la a lifetime
and that was the end of them, for the
shock, slew them. Jacob prevailed In
prayer and had the fatality set aside
on the condition that among all the
nations a sneeze should be hallowed
by the words "God bless your In the
"Jataka," one of the books of the
Buddhist Scriptures, we read that the
expression was, "May the bleased Lord

exclamation, and Buddha lectured
