John If. Ixsie, while trimming trees
on his premises at 431 Eighth street,
this morning, allowed a large knife
that he was using to slip, the blade
coming down on his left forearm, sev

wound. Before surgical assistance ar

In view of the fact that through lis
well directed efforts since coming to
Rock Island. Dean J. J. Quinn has suc
ceeded through the loyal cooperation of
his people in St. Joseph's parish in
clearing off the last cent of debt on
the treat improvements 3ie baa made
in the church property and will now
turn his attention to a new parochial
school building, the project is likely to
assume more than ordinary public interests.
It is estimated that the new school

timtly opportunity for religious reci
procity in Rock Island that it is believed
will be taken advantage of to the
fullest extent. During the recent tri
umphant campaign for the $125,000
fund for the erection of a new Y. M.
C. A. building, there "was none who
worked harder or more successfully
than the Catholic captains, lieutenants
and committeemen. They did this with
the full advice of Dean pQuiun, many
of whom consulted him feeling
that as the plans have frequently
been published heretofore, to erect a
new parochial school for St. Joseph's
parish they should possibly confine
their efforts to that institution. To
all who went to him for counsel
Dean Quinn had but one instruction
It was ''do all you can for the Y. M
C. A. movement. It is a good thing
and worthy of every man's aid."
CHI KCII TO AID.
There will be no general campaign
on behalf, of the funds for the new
St. Joseph's school. Dean Quinn will
confine his appeal to his own parish
but the opportunity, as a leading Y
M. C. A. worker put it one day last
week in discussion, is presented for
a (volunteer offering of a goodly sum
to assist in the undertaking, and
should be made. A committee of the
Y. M. G. A. Protestant workers, it is
understood, will Ret busy without de
lay and raise a handsome sum and
present it to Dean Quinn for his new
parochial 6chool as an evidence of ap
preciation and good will.

Mo-ement to establish a Are station
on Twenty-second street and Sixteenth
avenue was furthered last night In an
informal meeting at the pump station
at that place. It is the intention of
citizens who are interested In the
project to put the matter before the
city commission in the near future.
When asked concerning the likelihood
of the city's establishing a station as
desired. Commissioner Archie Hart
said that in all probability the city will
adhere to the original plan for the in
creased fire protection of the city and
that the hill proposition will not be
considered at this time.
WORK TO BE STARTED SOON.
(Commissioner Hart plans to secure
sufficient appropriation from the an
nual appropriation, soon to be made,
for the establishment of a fire hose
house on Fourteenth avenue, east of
Thirtieth street, and to rebuild the
Twenty-sixth street hose house and
bring the equipment from the Seventh
avenue station there. He plans to place
the Antral hose company in the hill
district and to purchase a fire auto
truck with pump attachment for the
Central hose house. This is the plan
which has been under advisement dur
ing former administrations and the
time is now ripe for action. Commis
sioner Hart thinks that such an im
provement would be ample to care for
the city's protection against fire.

With the shades of night rapidly
falling, vut adrift from shore and be
ing carried Tapidly out to sea, four
boys, cold and shivering, huddled close
together on a little raft late yesterday
afternoon and cried piteously for help,
conjuring in their mind's eye an awful
death by starvation and exposure to
the elements, with an ultimate resting
place 'noath the surface of the bound-
lt.g main. The names ot the boys
could not be learned.

They had jumped upon the raft be

Gravel Co., which was tied at the foot
of Nineteenth street, and when the
rope broke they were carried out upon
the broad expanse of the Mississippi
with no means of getting to shore. As
they drifted past the ferry dock, they
were rescued by a good Samaritan,
who threw them a life line and hauled
thorn to shore.

The lads, none of whom were over
13 years of ase, had brought down to
the river bank a supply of sandwiches
and olives, and after partaking of a
hearty repast, began to look around
for amusement. Spying the little raft,
tied to the sea wall, they boarded the
: same, armed w ith sections' of dry
' goods boxes for paddles. They navi
; gated the waters close to 6hore for a
'few moments, when suddenly the rope
' snapped. They all grabbed for it si-
niultaneously, at the same time drop

were carried out Into the river.
