CHECK LOST; AN ARREST
B. F. Kluxer Is Victom of an Un
The losing of a check for $G4 given
by B. F. Klugger to J. J. Gross resulted
in the former being arrested on a
charge of obtaining money under false
pretenses. The case came up yester
day in Justice P. H. Wells' court, from
which a change of venue was taken to
Justice W. F. Schroeder. There it was
learned that Klugger gave Gross a
chek last March and that the latter
placed it to his own credit in a locai
;ank, the check being drawn on a Mo
.Lie bank. Several weeks later Klug
ger withdrew the balance of hi3 ac
count from the bank, at the time think
ing that the check had been taken from
this, as the book had been balanced in
the meantime. It turned out, however,
that the check had been lost somehow
after being deposited and that Mr.
Gioss had not realized on it at all. The
case against Klugger was dismissed
upon learning of the facts.

It is to be doubted if a cleaner or

that appeared yesterday In Moline was
ever sent out under the name of Bar

to the effect that when one sees one
circus he sees them all. Not true of
the Barnum & Bailey entertainment,
for it is offering this season acts never
before seen under a canvas. The cir
cus has probably the finest collection
of wild animals ever seen under tents.
The circus, in every detail, was per
fect. T'nare was a tone of refinement
pervading the whole. There was an
absence of the roughness and crudity
that usually characterize a circus.
There was capacity attendance at both
performances. Rock Island sending as
its quota several thousand people.
