"Whiz" and dirt come to blows every
time they meet and "Whiz" always
wears the championship belt.
"Whiz" is the best stuff the me

gets down into the pores and cracks
of the skin and dmgs the dirt out
bodily without injury to the skin.
It takes off stains which nothing

They started after him and when
they approached. Smith took to his
heels. A large crowd aided In pur
suit, but Smith was too fast. He
reached the river and Jumped into
a skiff which had but one paddle
However he managed to get away,
only to be corralled at the Rock Island
shore. Officer Meenan was waiting for
him at Seventeenth street, and when
he noticed him, he started down the
river. At Twelfth street the bluecoat
flashed his gun and without further ado
the quarry came to shore.
This afternoon Smith admitted the
theft of both wheels and was bound
over under two charges of larceny with
bonds of $500 in each case.
COLORED LADS ARRESTED.
Willie Miller (colored), who was re
leased from custody yesterday in Dav
enport after he had been charged with
the theft of some bicycles obtained, it
is charged, with the assistance of
relative, Marion Davis, two more
wheels. Where the pair of colored boys
got the wheels is a mystery. One of
them is a woman's bicycle and the oth
er a man's. The hearing for the pair
has been set for tomorrow morning,
and in the meantime an effort will be
made to locate the owners of the prop
erty. The brother of Miller was sent
to E3dora by a Davenport Judge yes
terday. The boys have figured in sev
eral thefts. If the boy can prove that
he did not steal the wheels which were
found in his possession yesterday, he
will be held on another charge, for he
broke into a launch shed and took
away a part of the engine of the launch,
Officer Meenan arrested Miller and
PASS WORTHLESS CHECKS.

a traveling salesman, applied at a lo
cal taxi-cab livery the other day for a
machine. He used it until the bill had
been run up to $26.S5. He offered
check In settlement and It .was accept
ed. Haley left town. He went to Dav
enport and there hired a machins
which he U3ed two days. The bill was
f55. He gave another check In pay
rnent. It was soon found ' that the
check was no good and the Davenport
police were notified. Haley was ar
rested and Is now awaiting a hearing
The Hock Island incident was report
ed to the local police last night.
BOYS ARE HELD FOR
Though the jewelry In one
of the concessions of the Pat
terson shows was of a cheap va
riety, it glittered enough to make
Louis Betcher and John Rodney,
lads of 17 years, desire to possess
some of it. As a result they were
arrested this morning at 4 o'clock.
Detective Sehnert and Officer Gin
nane arrested the pair and in their
possession was found a large quan
tity of stick pins and cuff links, val
ued at S5. It was reported at the
police station a few hours earlier
that a trunk in the concession tent
had been opened and the jewelry
taken from a box.
This afternoon, before Police Mag
istrate C. J. Smith, the boys were
given a hearing. Both emphatically
declared that they had won the stuff
by throwing rings ' over the boxes
In which it was placed. They had
payed 10 cents for the privilege of
throwing five rings. Each spent
about $2 according to their state
ments, but Bert Johnson of Morris,
111., in charge of the stand, stated
that they had not spent more than 20
or 30 cents each. The Jewelry was
still wrapped in packages. There
were several packages, eacn or
which contained' half a dozen sets.
The boys protested their Innocence,
but Magistrate Smith considered
that the testimony was sufficient for
him to bind them over to the grand
Jury, each in bonds of $300, charg
ed with larceny.
This Is the first time that Rod
ney has been arrested, but Betcher
is an old offender. He has been
bound over on three or iour previous
occasions for larceny.

These prices do not cover the cost of making
the dresses and we would be unable to sell
them at such ridiculous figures but for the
fact that our buyer bought a maker's sam
ple line. The maker's salesmen used them on
the road, and since they had served their pur
pose he was willing to dispose of them at
most any figure. Every one is a stylish sum
mer model, first class in every respect and as
desirable as if you were being asked the full
price. It is one of the best bargains we have
ever offered and feel safe in predicting
quick sale tomorrow.
