NEWS OF THE NEIGHBORS .
HotiM Destroyed by Fierce Blaze.
An afternoon blaze, the origin of which
is not known, but Is thought to have
been an overheated cook store, prac
tically destroyed the new residence of
George H timer. 2611 Arlington avenue,
yesterday. "When the lire department
reached the house, after a long run,
the building was a mass of seething
flames, and In order to reach the fire
1,850 feet of hose had to belaid. Little
could be done to save the residence,
and all was lost by either fire or wa
ter. Insurance to the extent of $400.
was carried. Mr. Hilmer, who Is a
conductor on the Locust street line,
only recently built the house, and it
had not been entirely completed when
the fire swept It away.

ITCH RELIEVED AT ONCE
That terrible itch disappears with
the first drops of a simple compound
of oil of winte'rgreen. thymol and
glycerine mixed in D. D. D. Prescrip
tion. This soothing, healing lotion,
used externally kills -the eczema germ
Heretofore the D. D. D. remedy has
been sold only in $1.00 bottles; but as
a special offer, any sufferer in this
town who has never tried D. D. D.
can now try this remedy in a special"
bottle at 25c. It cures the itch in
stantly. We know this. The Harper
ditch In which he was working, Ange-
lua August, a foreigner employed in
the construction of the new Putnam
building at the -corner of Second and
Main streets, was badly injured by
the mass of dirt falling on him, his
Injuries being of such consequence that
he was removed in the city ambulance
to Mercy hospital. August was work
ing in the northeast portion of the
ground digging a deep trench In which
the iron supports for the new building
are to be placed. The heavy rains of
the previous day and evening had
caused the surrounding earth banks to
become loosened, and the digging dis
lodged about a ton of this earth, which
fell upon him without warning. He
managed to avoid having hia head cov
ered with the earth, and he was soon
extricated by his fellow workmen and
taken to the hospital. His injuries
consist largely of bruises, no bones
having been broken.
Ultimatum by Employing Teamsters,
The situation in the teamsters'
strike is today about the same, al
though several meetings have been
held by both sides. The sides differ as
to the terms offered by the executive
committee of the Davenport Transfer
and Storage Protective association,
the employers stating that they have
offered to permit the men to return to
work at an increase tn wages with the
conditions concerning the recognition
of the union the same as before the
commencement of the strike. The
strikers, however, say that no such
offer of an increase in wages has been
made and that they will not return to
work. A letter sent yesterday by the
employers to the president of the

Realization of All That Is Great in the '

union contained the following, infor
mation: "Fred Little, President of
Teamsters Union: The executive com
mittee of the association wishes to in
form you that all drivers now on strike
can return to their work under tne
same conditions as existed when they
left. No ill feeling is held against any
one, and all who do return will be
given steady work and will not be dis
charged without cause. There will be
no weeding out without cause, as has
been intimated by some of the drivers.
Should we fail to hear from you before
Tuesday at 6 p. m., we will consider
our offer rejected and new men will
be placed on the wagons Wednesday

Charles A. Fouriner, recently of. Mus

road Friday afternoon near Buffalo

result in his death, will be conducted
by officials of the road. Fourtaer is
still at St Luke's hospital, where he
is lying, at times conscious, but for
the most part unconscious from the
concussion of the brain which he suf
fered as a result of the fall. He has
at times rallied, but soon relapses into
a comatose state, which continues for
some time. His chances for recovery
are still slight, and word will be sent
to his folks in Maine, notifying them
of his condition. William Ryan, who
was with Fouriner at the time he leap

police pending the investigation whlct

land lines with headquarters in Chi
cago. He will have charge of all liti

utes. The receipt of two letters contain
ing $16 In currency by the Burling
ton company in Chicago yesterday
makes it seem evident that the road
may have lost thousands of dollars in
payment of bogus relief claims.
Following are the letters:

t). L. Dickson, press representative
of the company, said that this is the
first record of any money having been
wrongfully taken from the relief de
partment. ' He said that and more
may have been handed out, and a
thorough investigation will be made
to discover other possible steals. One
way, Mr. Dickeson said, would be for
an employe to complain to a local
doctor that he, the employe, had a
sprained back. The physician would
give a certificate to this effect and the
man would lay off. After one week
he would begin to draw full salary
as a sick benefit and he might con
tinue a long while.

letter, "City 163." which is the sta
