Sea the beautiful snowl It fell all
yesterday and last sight with exasper
ating consistency and this morning a
mantle of 11.3 inches lay on the
ground to hinder pedestrians and
traffic of all kinds. This morning.
nearly everyone was out with a shovel
making a path and the street car
sweepers "worked the greater part of
tbe night to clear the tracks. Until 7
o clock tnls morning tar re had been a
fall of "7.2 Inches of new snow, which
made the depth on the level 11.3
ISOW r ALL WOT EXCESSIVE.
The snowfall has not been excessive
this winter, however It may seem, ac
cording to the weather bureau. In
November there was a fall of 2.5 Inch
es, In December a fall of 2.5, In Janu
ary a fall of 2.5. In February a fall of
11.3 Inches and to date this month
there has been a fall of 14.6 inches.
The total idoes not make tbe snowfall
much above the average but the pecul
iarity about the conditions Is the heavy
fall In February and March. Both
months have more than the average
to their credit. The way the winter
hangs on Is unusual. Although there
was snowfall during tbe first months
of the winter around us, we received
little In this city but the severe weath
er was not wanting. Now the snow Is
all falling in Rock Island. In Peoria
there was a cold rain yesterday but no
mow whatever and the rain served to
clear and clean the streets.

Traffic was delayed but little this
morning. Street tars kept schedule

Freight 'service Is delayed, but Is re
markable considering conditions.
Trains from the east on the Rock Is
land road were from two to three
hours late this morning and trains
from the west were even later. The
Burlington had no train more than 40
minutes late but the Milwaukee road
fared worse. A day or two should re

CLKARING THE WALKS.
The city had several gangs of men
on the Job in the downtown district
this morning, clearing the crossings
and the park walks. There is consider
able feeling among those who are com
pelled to wade knee deep through the
snow over uncleaned walks where
those with a touch of spring fever
have failed to do their duty as citi
zens. There is a city ordinance com
pelling everyone to clean the walks in
front of their place of residence or
business but unfortunately it is not en
forced. SETTER WEATHER IN SIGHT.
The weather man has promised to
do his part to relieve conditions. He
prophesies fair weather today and to
night with the temperature tonight
from 10 to 15 degrees above zero. To
morrow he says warmer, and everyone

IS ADJUDGED GUILTY
The Jury In the William Warnock
forgery case reported last night to
Judge F. XX Ramsay, the verdict de
claring the prisoner guilty. Warnock
was at once sentenced to the state
penitentiary at Joliet The defendant
passed several checks for $15 each, us
ing the name of Otto Seidlitz of the lo
cal agency for the Edelweiss Brewing
company. The forgery was very crude,
apparently no attempt having been
made to imitate the signature of the
supposed signer of the checks. At the
trial, the defendant was the only one
to testify for the defense wnue tne
state introduced half a dozen witness
es, warnock s nome is in ueneseo.
There are now two prisoners bound
for Joliet at the county jail, Warnock
and Jerry McCarthy, the safe blower
who sentenced yesterday. They will
be taken to prison at the earliest con
venience of the sheriff.

But for the fact that rotary sweep

tracks of the Rock Island road in Mis
souri between Ramona and . Tampa,
Mr. and Mrs. Louis Salzmann and son
Roy, would not have arrived home last
night without a scratch to give evi
dence that they were In a wreck be
tween the points mentioned Wednes
day afternoon at 5 o'clock. But such
was the case, and the Salzmanns, re
turning after several months In Los
Angeles, are regaling their friends
with the story of the miraculous es
cape of themselves and hundreds of
other passengers. The snows, which
have been heavy recently throughout
the south end middle west, have caus
ed no end of trouble to the railroads.
A heavy rotary sweeper had gone over
the Rock Island tracks in Missouri,
just ahead of the passenger from the
west. The weight had caused the
tracks to spread.
LEAVES THE RAILS.
When the heavy passenger hit the
spread rails, the baggage car left
them, and of course the other cars fol
lowed. They were thrown against the
big snow banks and after wobbling
back and forth for a few minutes, the
cars settled. The passengers, surpris

Copies of "Etude de Concert," the
first piano composition written by
Miss Ottille M. Reupke of Davenport,
have recently come from the publish
ers, Willis & Co., of Cincinnati. Miss
Reupke has already won for herself
a prominent place in the musical
world through her vocal compositions
among which are "My Prayer," "1
Trust in Thee," "Oh, Vision Fair,"
etc., but the writing of a piano com
position is a new departure. The
riece was played by Mrs. Ludo Brun
lng Starbuck from manuscript some
time since at the local composers' re
cital at Unity hall, Davenport, and
at that time created much Interest.
It is a brilliant composition, well and
originally written. Miss Reupke dis-
Tlays much feeling and sympathy In

in piano composition, will undoubted

along this line.
