THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS

Sock Islanders Selected to Head
Democratic and Republican
IS NOMINATED FOR
LIGHT VOTE IS POLLED
Little Interest 8hown In Election in
Any of Four Counties In the
C. B. Marshall of this city Is the
winner of a neck and neck race with
S. R. Kenworthy. also of Rock Island,
for the nomination for judge In the
Fourteenth Judicial district on the
democratic ticket. County Judge 2
W. Olmsted, winner of the 'nomina
tion over J. L. Haas, will be Mr. Mar
shall's opponent at. the poles in No
vember. W. R. Moore of Mollne, as
pirant for nomination by the demo
crats, ran considerably behind Mr.
Marshall and Mr. Kenworthy and ex
eept in Mollne, where he easily led,
polled such a light vote as to put
him hopelessly In the rear.
LOSFHS WH AT HOME.
Without exception the losers in the
judicial primary won in their home
towns and the winners ran second, la
Rock Island, where four of the five
candidates reside, Mr. Kenworthy led
Mr. Marshall by 61 votes and Mr.
Haas polled one more vote than did
his successful opponent.
In Mercer, Whiteside and Henry
counties Mr. Marshall and Judge
Olmsted were successful by consider
able majorities and though the vote
was extremely light In each of these
places, the total was sufficient to make
up for the loss at home.
VOTING VERY LIGHT.
Nowhere was there any interest
shown la the contest. The republi
cans practically conceded the nomina
tion to Judge Olmsted and the chief
strength shown by Mr. Haas was In
Rock Island, hlB home town.
The vote on the democratic ticket
ws even lighter than for the repub
lican. Voters failed to express a pref
erence, the sentiment being "any of the
three democratic candidates is good
enough for the position and for my
support at election time."
All of the candidates being from j S. Moline

The progress of bona fide affection
is but rarely unruffled, according to
an old adage, which was aptly dem
onstrated Saturday afternoon, when
Mister Cupid was the recipient of a
hard right to the 6olar plexus followed
by a sweeping left to the point of the
jaw, which caused him to neatly fold
his little wings and crash to the can
vas floor in the office of Justice V. II.

the vote was re-canvassed, it was dis
covered that some 12 years had been
loBt in the shufle, and consequently
the justice claimed that the cards
were stacked, and called for a new
deal. When the cards were again dis
tributed Augusta drew to a pair of
Jacks and did not 11 ft. Woe and trib
ulation. Henry decided Saturday that life
without Augusta would be one dull,
aching void, and the couple hied them
selves to Rock Island to be married.
Henry had the facts at his tongue's
end, and consequently paid a visit to
County Clerk Hubbard and got the li
cense, which read as follows: "Miss
Augusta Shaw, age 26."
JI STK B DOIBTFCI.
When the ' blushing bride and the,
stalwart groom entered Justice Wells'
office, clutching the documents, the
lr.cal barrister perused the parchment
and then took a hasty Inventory of the
prospectives. His Investigation led
him to believe that the fair Augusta
had slipped up on the count when she
checked in at 26 years, and immediate
ly began a cross examination.
SAIJ Ml SIC.
This disclosed the fact that Augus
ta had bpeii trying to sMp one over
on Henry, as she admitted that her
age was not 26, but 38, that her name
was not Miss Shaw, but Mrs. Shal
low, and that she had been married,'
and had secured a divorce only two
months ago. "Mrs. Shallow," thun
dered the justice, "you have been try
ing to deceive Henry. We will go to
th comity clerk's office and straighten
up these few discrepancies before the
ceremony proceeds." Here Mrs. Shal
low again told the truth, a thing which
had been forgotten in her courtship :
with Henry, and while Cupid gathered ;
up his bow and arrows and reached '
for the smelling salts, the license)
was tora into pieces and thrown into
the waste basket. The wedding be'.ls
did not ring and the sorrowing couple
returned to the Iowa town.
Moral: After securing a divorce,
you cannot be stung for a year.
