REFUSED HALF THE ROAD
Battle Occurs at Brown Farm South
of Milan on July 29 Trial
After brooding continuously over
the fact that four years ago William
Shapiro, a Viola peddler, had refused
to turn out and Rive him half of the
road, George Brown, a farmer residing
five miles south of Milan, a few days
ago met the subject of his bitter
thoughts, and, after a battle. In which
beer bottles and clubs figured as wea
pons, beat him up and eased his mind.
An a result, Shapiro swore out a war
rant, charging Brown with assault and
battery, and the case was brought up
for trial in Justice C. J. Schroeder's
court this morning. Brown was placed
under bonds and the case continued.
FKiHT otr.R HOn.
About four years ago. Brown In com
pany with his little niece, was driv
ing along a country road. Shapiro was
driving his wagon, and when Brown
winhed to pass him, the peddler re
fused, and further qualified his re
marks by several choice anathemas 1
which according to Brown's state
mnt. were so warm that they fairly i
scorched the Canadian thistles by the
road side and caused his niece's ears i
tr. burn with, shame. After driving to i
his horn- Brown startpd out in pur- i
suit of the peddler, but could not get
him to dismount from the wagon and
fight. He therefore contented himself
with a warning that if the peddler ev- i
er stepped on his place he (Brown)
would annihilate him.

July 29 Shapiro came Jauntily up to
the Brown manor house and made in-
fluirl'-s km to whether or not the fam

ons or onions. At tl;ls juncture Brown !
appeared, and the fight began. The ;
peddler grubbed a beer bottle and !
cautiously advanced upon his oppon- ;

the branches. Both made wl'd

business of Grossman's store In Mo-
j This store was opened to the public
on March 30, this year, after a preltm
I inary campaign of advertising, in
which the potent features of the In
tended service to be offered was thor
oughly gone over and impressed up
on everyone's mind.
Since this memorable opening day
Grossman's has become a by-word
with shrewd shoppers, and the busi
ness has naturally Increased by leaps
and bounds, until it became necessary
to enlarge the store.
This work has been completed and
now some 2,000 square feet of floor
space has been added, making this
store one of the largest in this part of
the country, selling ladles' ready to
wear garments exclusively, the Molina
Furniture company, have finished in

are in keeping with the former fix

beauty of the entire is really excep

feel at home, whether they come to
buy or just to look about.

season, house dresses, dressing

TO COST 75,00.
The new home of the Masons is to
be one that would do Justice to a city
of considerably larger population than
Rock Island now has. All told it will
cost approximately $75,000, and every
dollar spent will show in the build
ing. The committee and Architect O.
C. Cervin have had a number of meet
ings with the contractors, and have
gone over every detail a number of
times, and feel that they will get
value received for their expenditure.
The building is to be 85 by 110 feet
and two-and-a-half stories high, exclu
sive of the basement. The exterior
will be of selected brick with cut
stone trimmings and cornice, and will
have two iron balconies.
On the first floor will be a banquet
hall 48 by 84, and adjacent to this a
completely equipped kitchen. There
will also be an office room for the J
building, a men's club room and a la-1
dies' parlor. I
