FORECAST FOB ROCK ISLAJVD. DAVEXPORT. MOLJXE
Threatening weather tonight and Sunday with showers
The southwestern storm, which ex
tends from Teiaa northeastward to
the upper lakes, with its center over
eastern Missouri, and another low that
has appeared over Alberta, have been
attended by showers In most of the
territory from the crest of the Rockies
to the Allegtanies and by thunder
storms In the central valleys. A rain
fall of 1.38 Inches is reported from Iu
buque. An area of relatively high
pressure extends from Manitoba south
westward to Colorado, and another
high, accompanied by fair, cool weath
er, overlies the north Pacific coast.
Owing to the slow, eastward movement
of the Missouri low, threatening weath
er is indicated for this vicinity tonight
and Sunday, with showers and cooler

any one, but before the men reached
them they bad disappeared. Not
dreaming that one of the girls was a
man and the man they wanted, they
did not make a search. In the even

the different parties that Jim Green
had not been found.
Eliza's mother told of her daughter's
disappearance. She told. too. of the
taking of the only other dress the girl
owned and the son bonnet. Some
freshly baked corn pone also was
missing. Then for the first time arose
in the minds of her family a suspi

the search had something to do with
the fugitive, Jim Green.
The mystery was not cleared up till
a week later, when a note mailed
from a town north of the Ohio river
was received from Eliza ' confessing
that she had helped Green to escape

also informed her people that It was

never qnlte approved of these very
short sermons, and it has been inti
mated to the chaplains in ordinary at

whom the preacher for the morning

GREAT CRICKETER DEAD.
Dr. E. M. Grace Had Played For More
Than Sixty Years.
Dr. Edward Mills Grace, the oldest
brother of the famous family of crick
eters, passed away a couple of weeks
ago at his home in Gloucestershire,
England, at the age of seventy. lie
played cricket for more than sixty
years, and to be in sport for that
length of time and to be great In one's
day is a distinction earned by very
few men. He began to play the game
when he was ten years of age, and it
has been computed that during his ca
reer he scored 76,705 runs and took
11.959 wickets in match play.
He was born in 1841 and played his
first match of note in the month of Au
gust. 1S55. when he made one of the
team from West Gloucestershire that
met and defeated the All England
eleven. In the early sixties be was at
his best, and notably in 1SC3 he took
part in fifty matches and obtained an
aggregate of 3,074 runs. In those days
his bowling was as effective as his hit
ting. With George Parr's team he vis
ited Australia in 1SC3 and 1864 and
was the whole feature of the trip. No
man of his style bad up to that time
been seen In Australia.
It was singular that while he was
away in the land of the Southern Cross
his younger brother. Dr. W. G. Grace,
had begun to earn fame. Another
Grace, the sporting world said, and the
greatest of the trio, the other broth
er, Fred, died some years ago, but Dr.
W. G. is still in the land of the living.
Although feeble and very weak on
bis legs. Dr. E. M. played a little last
summer, but he scored only nine runs.
It is recorded that he fell down ex
hausted more than once in trying to
sr-ore. He loved the game and played
it just as long as he could. Along with
his ability as a cricketer Dr. Grace was
a good shot and all round sportsman.
