Charles Miller Pretends to Be
Sick and Objects to Work
ing for the City.
CHANGES MIND, HOWEVER
Husky Physician Shakes Him Up and
Fellow Makes Haste to Get
Back to His Labors.
Trying to evade the order of the
rourt that he be placed at work on
the city streets, Charles Miller, -who
as sentenced to 12 days on the chain
-ang because he was too stingy to rent
a room to shelter his scantily attired
Wife, received treatment from a physi
cian yesterday (that roused him from
his feigned lethargy and sent him
carrying to his work. The gang in
charge of a detailed employe of the
city, hied themselves off to work at an
early hour in the morning. They had
been delayed some what by the first
complaint of filler until one of the
Hflcers administered a little medicine.
DOCTOR SHAKES HIM.
Miller loafed while at work and the
tnan in charge -of the crew was glad
of an opportunity to hail a passing
physician to see if there was anything
the matter with the fellow. After a
cursory examination, the physician
Biscovered that all that was lacking
was a good shaking and a lilttle fresh
air. Without stopping to inquire as
to the wishes of the patient, he ad
ministered the shaking, slapped Miller
n the back and within a few minutes
the man who was mean enough to trv
to make his wife 6leep out in the open.

pushing a shovel with the best of

ed especially suited to her pleasing
voice. The fullness and distinction of
her enunciation is a delightful feature
of her singing. She was forced to
respond to an encore. Miss Edith Oli
ver won many admirers at her first
public appearance in this city as a
pianist. She gave a difficult Litollf
composition, Filluse, with perfect un
derstanding and splendid expression
and was persuaded to give another
number, her own composition, which
was enthusiastically received. The
Gadskl concert, which the music de
partment is sponsoring, was the chief
topic of discussion at the business
meeting which followed. The Novem
ber meeting of the department will be
held at the home pt Mrs. G. A. Ste
phenson of Moline, the lesson on or
gan music and oratorio to be in
charge of Mrs. T. B. Reidy of this city.
CHOIR WELCOMES MRS. LUND.
MRS. EDLA LUND, WHO HAS
spent the summer abroad, was last
evening given a formal welcome back
to the city and to Ihe leadership of
the choir of the Broadway Presbyter
ian church, by the members of the
church choir, which has reorganized
for the year's work. The reception
was held in the Sunday school room,
the Japanese form of welcome being
used. In which the honored guest is
approached with five lighted candles
on a tray, which is placed at her feet.
The individual bearing the lights
kneels, and bending forward, touches
his head to the carpet, then rises and
retires. Mrs. Lund was showered by
greetings from all present. Light re
freshments were served. The chorus,
of which Mrs. Lund will continue as
director, will sing at morning services.
A quartet will furnish the music for
the evening service.
