If Henry Schock of Muscatine, who
arrired a day or so ago to see the
town and have a general good time,
failed In his mission, he wants to
know about ii. Yesterday afternoor
te hired a livery rig and went around
to see Jennie Mills, who he claims i3
his cousin. Now Jennie is well known
down 1n the police court, for 6he can
ecarcely stay away from there a fort -
night at a stretch. They had a long
ride and as it was somewhat dustv.
they stopped for a drink at the Mor
tler 6aloon above Third avenue on
Twenty-second street. Both entered
the yard, where they met Clyde
liained. A wordy war between the ;
two fellows brought about a fistic en
counter which, according to evidence,
was started by the Muscatine lad.
The police heard of it and started
out to arrest all of the parties con
cerned. Schock had left Jennie after
the fight and early this morning be
was found with another woman. His
arrest followed. He was fined $3 and
costs this morning for disorderly con
duct. It took his last cent to pay and
If he followed the court's instructions,
he is on his way to his home.
POLICE RAID MILLS HOME.
For her part in the affair the Mill
woman was wanted and the pohco
w-ent to her home. Captain James
Reynolds and Officers John Kinney
and Herman Sehnert went after her.
They found the woman they wanted
and with her was May Crowell of Mo
line, who was released from the coun
ty jail a few -weeks ago. The officers
made a thorough search of the house,
and they found Emil Conert in a room
under a bed. The trio was escorted to
the station. The two women were
each fined $3 and costs and the Mills
woman paid for both. Conert was giv
en 20 days in the county Jail.
TOO M4XV TROIUI.ES.
Jennie Mills has been warned fre
quently that she must not visit sa
loons or buy liquor, but the warning
has been unheeded. She claimed that
her troubles were enough to drive any
one to drink. When asked concerning
them, she stated that another woman
was trying to win the affection of her:0j Rock island

She says that the woman was eve.i
wearing her rings, and that hurt. Jen
nie promises that she is going to make

HIT IN VAUDEVILLE
Rock Islander Returns After Success
ful Engagements in Chicago
and Other Cities.
Robert Rexdale returned home last
week after successful three-weeks'
vaudeville engagements in Chicago,
Dubuque and Freeport. Mr. Rexdale
for months had been encouraged by
theatrical managers to take up the
business seriously, and finally he con
sented to giving his speciality the
reading of his original writings, with
stereopticon illustrations and it ha
met with such hearty receptions In the
houses where it has been produced
that he has decided to devote h'a
whole time to the stage, beginning iu
the fall season. Mr. Rexdale's act is
the only one of its kind in vaudeville.
It is therefore novelty, and that is
what the vaudeville managers are
seeking and willing to pay liberalis
