- THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1910.
Y y U
Wilmerton Sells 30-Acre Tract. A
deed has been filed by which EM
Daugberty acquires the title to a 30
acre tract of land north of Central
park through purchase from W. W.
Wilmerton of Rock Island. Mr. Dough
erty will divide the tract into six 5
ere lots which he will hold as an In
vestment . Upon the tract is located a
modern house and barn. Mr. Dough
erty has also sold to Mr. Wilmerton an
'acre of land in the town of Betten
liorf. I To Build New Freight House. An
other new freight depot will be built
in Davenport. Announcement was
made by C. H. Caswell before his de
parture for Chicago that the Rock Is
land will erect a building on the site
at present occupied by the old freight
house. The old building has been
found Inadequate to answer the de
mands of the shippers and receivers,
and the new house will not only be
more convenient, but will be four times
tha size of the one now in use. The
plans for the new building are not yet
out, but it was asserted by Mr. Caswell
that the new building will have 20
doors for the reception and delivery of
less-tban-carload freight. Construction
.will be commenced some time during
the coming year.
Drop Murder Clues. The confession
of Henry Bradbury, which implicated
only himself in the death of Jolm II.
Bnink Monday evening, through the
fatal fall down the stairway at 219-221
Harrison street, will have to stand as
the sum total of the conclusive evi
dence secured by the police working
on the homicide mystery. The many
witnesses and suspects who have been
corralled since the case first came to
the attention of the authorities have
been dismissed by Chief of Police
Schramm, following severe questioning
and grilling in the hopes of being able
to land the man who slashed Brunk on
the back of the head a short time be
fore his death. The well worked out
theories and the results of the out
spreading of the police dragnet brought
practically no conclusive evidence
against any of those under arrest, and
now only Bradbury and Mrs. Louis
Fuqua are held as being able to en
lighten the authorities further on the
solution of the mystery. Mrs. Fuqua
is held as possibly being able to add
further light on those who were In the
apartments shortly before Brunk's
death and which may lead to the ap
prehension of the guilty parties. Brad
bury has not altered his first confes
sion to any appreciable extent and his
version has been accepted as the cor
rect one. The question which now
most agitates the authorities working
on the case and which seems to be
about as far from being solved as at
first, is who slashed Brunk before he
was hurled down the stairs? This
question has been the lone stumbling
block which the police have encounter
ed in bringing the case to a poin,t.
Who the man was that came down out
of the stairway shortly after Bradbury
did and ran south on Harrison street,
attired in a sweater, is the second
point that still remains to be solved.

This combination set, consisting of a 13-inch Bread Knife, an ll.-inch'
Cake Knife, and an 8-inch Paring Knife, is made of the best quality of
steel. The serrated edges of the bread and cake knives embodying the
famous "Christy" idea, are well ground and are better adapted for the

the market. The little paring knife is a most indispensable kitchen uten
sil and is made of the same high-grade steel. The handles are of black
enamel. The American Cutlery Co. are the manufacturers of these goods.
This is a sufficient guarantee of their reliability. No kitchen is complete
without a set of this cutlery and no one can afford to overlook the oppor
tunity of securing these knives at the ridiculously low price offered by us.
