HUSBAND FORGIVES HIS ERRING WIFE
AFTER SHE H4S DIED IN SUICIDE PACT
Commissioner Martin T. Rudgren
effered a resolution yesterday after
noon providing that the city attor
ney and the commissioner of the wa
terworks department draw up an or
dinance for presentation at the next
regular meeting of the council
which will make It necessary for the
payment of a flat rate for the laying
of cement block. This matter has
giTen considerable difficulty of late
and the flat rate seems the only rem
edy for It. Another matter breached
by the commissioner for considera
tion was one concerning the descrip
tion of property. Under the present
system, various descriptions are filed
In one place and the result is that
It is hard to identify one description
with another. It is the plan of Com
mlBsioner Rudgren to have all de-l
scrlptlons according to the platting
of lots. Not all lots are platted and
be is desirous of passing an ordi
nance which will insist on the plat
ting of all those listed. The resolu
tion offered was withdrawn so that
the city attorney could be consulted
before Its adoption.
rmoTiDB ron sewer account.
As a way out of the difficulty of
providing funds for the exhausted
sewer account, it was decided to
meet all labor bills out of the con
tingent fund without making addi
tional appropriation. Commiueioner
Hart Is to investigate within the next
few days and see if the fire depart
aoent can allow the sewer department
to take 300 feet of the hose and
wait for payment of the same out of
next year's appropriation for the
ewer account. At present the sew
er department borrows the hose
when necessary and the wear and
tear make It advisable to place the
hose at the disposal of the sewer de
partment. If necessary, other hose

IN ANOTHER WEEK
The new offices of the Smith Sys
tem Heating company have been in
stalled at the company's factory situ
ated at First avenue and Sixteenth
street, and L. C. Smith of Minneapolis,
president of the company, is now in
the city superintending the setting up
of the machinery and attending to the
various details of the company's plant
The main office of the company is at
Minneapolis. Three years ago a
branch office was opened in Indianapo
lis, but in order to increase the output,
obtain better shipping facilities and
obtain a more favorable and central
location for reaching central western
territory, it was deemed advisable to
remove the factory from the Indiana
city to Rock Island. The territory
consisting of Iowa, Illinois, Kansas,
Nebraska and the southern states is at
the present time considered the choic
est of all the localities In which the
company does business, and therefore
Rock Island has been considered an
ideal location. Furthermore, the com
pany has let large contracts to the
Rock Island Stove company, and the
fact that both concerns are in the same
city will mean an enormous saving in
BEGIN IX A WEEK.
Although the wiDter season is the
lightest one in point of factory opera
tion, a good sized force of men will be
put to work within a week's time.
Leon Mitchell of this city has been
appointed factory manager and will
have entire charge of all operations in
that department of the business, while
E. T. Ferry, the sales manager of the
company, has moved his family to this
city from Indianapolis to immediately
assume his duties.
MAKE NEW HEATER.
The company manufactures a com
bined heater and ventilator for use in
schools, churches, lodge halls, etc. It
is especially designed for heating large
single rooms, and while it supplies
plenty of warm, fresh air, it at the
same time removes the cold, foul air.
The company does a quarter of a mil
lion dollars' business yearly and reach
es every state in the union, and the
securing of this factory will undoubt
edly prove an additional boost for the

SHRINERS WILL ATTEND
"SHERRY" SHOW IN BODY
Shriners' theatre night will be
celebrated next Saturday evening at
the Illinois, when the wearers of the
red fez and their ladies will witness
a performance of ".Madame Sherry."
One hundred seats have been pur
chased by local members, who will
probably be joined by a large num
ber from Davenport and Moline.
There will be special decorations
which Manager William Klinck, a
member of Kaaba Temple, Daven
port, will procure especially for this
occasion. The matter of selecting an
attraction for the theatre night has
been a means of keeping the com
mittee busy for some time. Finally
they announced their decision as be
ing unanimously in favor of
"Madame Sherry," the French vaude
ville, which is here matinee and
night next Saturday. Manager
Klinck at once made arrangements
for taking care of the guests for the
evening and will provide several sec
tions in different parts of the lower
floor. As "Madame Sherry" does not
play Davenport, it is expected that
the Rock Islanders will be joined by
a number from that city.
