open cellar jaay. - Several bones were
broken and it was considerable time

The case against Robert Terrill
and Sidney Nuby, negro boys charg
ed with having stolen $11 from the
J. T. Shields grocery store, was dis
missed this morning in the police
court by Magistrate C. J. Smith. The
trial came up Tuesday, but was con
tinued until this morning at the re
quest of the state. The charges
were dropped becaused of the declar
ation of Mr. Shields to prosecute. Mr
Louis J. Doyle, employed at Silvis
as a call boy for the Rock Island
road, Lad both his ankles severely
sprained eariy this morning In a fall
from the top of a caboose to the
ground. The young man was walking
on the top of the cars. The caboose
was standing in a long string of cars
and he thought they were all close to
gether. He was mistaken, however,
although in the darkness" he did not
discover it in time .to refrain from step
ping off into space. His cries brought
aid from switching crews and he was
hurried to the depot 'in this city on a
switch engine. The city ambulance
met the engine there and conveyed the
