THE ROCK ISTjAISTD ARGUS, TUESDAY, JULY 5, 1910.
m NEWS OF THE NEIGHBORS 1 a
Dog Attack Child. Freddie Mineck,
the little 4-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs.
.Julius Mineck, 609 Myrtle street, Dav-
enport, was bitten by a dog. The little
fellow was standing on the sidewalk
. near his home and he reached to pet a
dog that was , passing by. It seems
that the dog jumped at the boy and bit
his right ear and scratched his face
just below the right eye. The dog's
teeth pierced the lobe or gristly part
of the ear and scratched the upper
part. The mark on the face was ap-
. parently made by the dog's claw, as it
was a Blight Bcratch. At the time the
accident occurred a physician happen
ed to be attending a patient in the
neighborhood, and he was called to the
. Mineck home and cleansed and cauter
ized the wound so that no dangerous
results are feared. The dog was a
strange animal and the family is un
able to locate or identify it more than
by the description which the child was
able to give, which was that it was a j
small, yellow, short-haired animal.
Bince the boy's injuries are not likely
to prove serious, no effort will be made
to locate the dog.

ONLY BABY GIRAFFE HERE
Curiosity Is Seen in Menagerie of
Barnuni and Hailey Circus.
The only baby giraffe ever exhibited
anywhere in the world will be seen in
Moline on Thursday, July 21, with the
Barnum and Bailey greatest show on
earth. This is the second time in his
tory that the stork has ever paid a
visit to the giraffe pen in the zoo of
captives. Over 60 years ago in the
Zoological gardens at London, Eng
lanl, a similar event happened, but
the youngster lived only a few hours.
Ion after that event scientific ani
mal breeders spent fortunes in vain
attempts to entice the stork of giraffe
land to their quarters. After a time
they gave up the project and were con
tent with what full-grown giraffes they
could find in the African jungles.
This curious American baby is
named Bumbino. which in the Italian
tongue means 'boy." Bumbino came
like a Christmas present, in the dark
of night and all unexpected. The
keepers found him in the early morn
ing, and great was the rejoicing at
Bridgeport, where the show makes Hs
winter home. Bumbino's mother is 22
feet tall. The tips of the youngster's
ear3 just reach to the old lady's knees.
The mother is worth $14,000, the
father is worth $12,000 and a giraffe
uncle of the new arrival is very valua
ble. Bumbino is worth more than the
rest of the family with elephants,
camels and lions tossed in against
him. In fact he is priceless.
Bumbino is a playful little chap. He
gambols around in the giraffe enclo
sure like a kitten. He is as pretty as
a picture and the flower of health. He
is going to live a long time to delight
thousands of children from one end
of the land to the other. He has the
place of honor in the baby colony. His
vain old mother watches over him and
his father looks at him proudly from
afar. At Madison Square garden,
where the circus opened its season in
March, Bumbino was the center of all
eye3,- and no wonder, for he is the
greatest circus attraction ever ex
ploited. Advertised List No. 26.

to whether the recent decision of the
Illinois supreme court in regard to
validity of the parole law will have any
effect on the length of J. W. Warr'a
term of service to the Illinois state
penitentiary at Joliet is so general that
the Dispatch wrote the authorities at
the penitentiary. Yesterday the follow
ing self-explanatory letter was received
in renlv: "Editor Dispatch: I have
your letter of the 30th ult,, and note
your inquiry as to whether or not the
recent decision of the supreme court
will in any way affect the case of J.
W. Warr, who is now serving a term
of imprisonment in this institution. In
reply I would say that this decision
does not affect Warr's case. As Warr's
case now stands he will receive his
final discharge Nov. 16, 1910. Yours,
respectfully, E. J. Murphy, warden."
Car Bumps Conductor. Harry Max-
field, conductor on the lnterurban road,
was painfully injured while he wasl
standing on the running board of a
summer car collecting fares, a passing
car bumping him. The accident occur
red at the Fiftieth street switch In
this city. Maxwell's car was enroute
to Watertown, running late. His car
was crowded and he was collecting
fares on the left side. A handle of a
passing car, bound for the city, struck
his right arm, and he would have fallen
between the cars if two male passen
gers had not seized him. He continued
as far as Eighth street, East Moline,
and returned to the city on the next In
coming car. .He was accompanied by
a physician, and taken to the city hos
pital. The bone of his arm was not
broken, but he sustained a bad bruise,
and as a result he will be unable to
work for a week or 10 days.
Many Bid to Dig Ditch. Hampton
township drainage commissioners
found themselves face to face with a
serious dilemma when they opened the
bids of contractors who desire to dig
the drainage ditch in Hampton district
No. 4. The usual troubles, lack of bids
and estimates In excess of the proposed
cost of the ditch-, were not met with.
Conditions instead were reversed, and
the large number of bids and uniform
ly low estimates of the bidders made it
impossible to complete the work at one
sitting. Therefore at the end of the
meeting the commissioners retained
the three lowest bids and returned the
checks and bids of the various other
contractors who submitted estimates.
The commissioners adjourned to meet
again in Barstow July S, when the con
tract will be awarded. The three con
tractors whose estimates were retain
ed have been asked to confer with the
commissioners. Bids retained: Car
ter Bros., Danville, excavating at 6
cents a cubic yard; R. N. McWilliams,
7.3G cents a cubic yard; Matthews &
Coe. Erie, 7.SS cents a cubic yard. Car
ter Bros, submitted the lowest bid, but
the commissioners must look Into the
estimates of the contractors on stone,
hard-pan, shale and gravel excavations.
The commissioners estimate that there
are 134.000 cubic yards of material to
be removed before the big ditch is
completed. The total expenditure must
not exceed $16,260. None of the bids
retained total nearly so much as this
maximum figure. It is the desire of
the commissioners that the contract be
let as soon as possible in order that the
work may be completed this year.
Fluman judgment is finite, and It
ought always to be charitable. Wil

Under the bill New Mexico and Art-!
zona cannot be admitted to the Union
until next spring. The territories, how
ever, can go ahead this summer and

on the constitutions the states will be
admitted automatically 6ixty days aft-;

One Democratic, Other Republican, j
The political aspect of the new states
has long been figured upon, and Arizo
na is regarded as normally Democrat
ic and New Mexico solidly Republican,
though both give small pluralities.
Delegate Cameron is the first Repub
lican to be sent to congress by Arizona
in more than twenty years. New Mex
ico, however, regularly returns Repub
licans. New Mexico has already summoned
a constitution:!! convention and antic
ipates no delay, as the IJepublican par
ty of the territory Is very conservative
and energetically opposed to socialistic
Ideas. The constitution is likely to be
conservative aud is sure to be one that
will meet President Taft's a; proval.
It is proposed to have tbe constitution
adopted by the people in time to lay It
before congress In December. New
Mexico will be Republican by 5,000 to
10.000 in a total vote of G0.000.
