Word was received here today from j
I New York of the death of Frank Mur-;
pry, ex-Islander ball player, who had
a host of friends In this city and whose
wife was Miss Edna Lewis of this i
city. Mrs. Murphy has been living ,

It will be recalled that Murphy left '
Kock Island to play ball on the coast.
While there he developed paresis and '
a year ago in April he was taken back
cast where his family lives and placed
la a sanitarium. The end was appar
ent but he clung tenaciously to life
and succumbed this morning. j
Murphy was a fine fellow and came'
from a fine family. He played out

1908 and 1909, coming here from New
York and going from here in 1910 to
the Pacific Coast league.
Gustaf Swan Eng, the former well
known Rock Island baseball catcher,
of 1839 Tenth street, Moline, died Sat
utday evening at 8.30 o'clock at St. An
thony's hospital after a 12 weeks' ill
ness of typhoid malaria.
His condition was not considered
serious although he had been ill for
some time. Last Friday, however, his
condition suddenly became worse and
he was removed to the hospital where
the end came the following evening.
Mr. Eng was born Feb. 29, 1884, in
Moline, where he spent the greater
part of his life. His early education
was received In the public schools of
that city. June 8, 1910, he was united
in marriage to Miss Maude Evans, who
with his mother, Mtb. Mathilda Eng,
two sisters, Mrs. George Llnd and

ORE GRAY HAIR
The contract for new overcoats for
some 15 members of the police force
was let this morning to the Singer
company of Chicago. The contract
price is $23 per coat. A committee
of four policemen Furlong, Meenan,
Kirsch and Herkert at the request of
Commissioner Archie Hart, examined
the bids that had been made and rec
ommended that the contract be given
to the Chicago concern. Commission
er Hart says that it is his belief that
the company will at once appoint an
agent in the city, through whom the
conuact will be handled.
The bid accepted was the highest of
the four received. Sextons' of this
city submitted a bid of $21 per coat,
the Haege Tailoring company made a
bid of $17 per coat, and a Davenpoi
agent of a New York firm submitted
a bid of $20 per coat. The contract
was awarded by Commissioner Hart
in accordance with the wishes of the
committee which examined the bids
and the samples which accompanied

Falf '.ngi Faded, -Gray HaM
The old idea of C.'ini? Sage for dark
ening the hair is agai coming in vogue.
Our grandmothers had dari;vKloB8y hair
at seventy-five, while our mot&ers are
gray before they are fifty. Our gkind
mothers kept their hair soft and glossy--with
a "Sage Tea," which also restored
the natural color. mm - ,
One objection to using snch a prepar
ation was the trouble of making it.
This objection has been overcome by
the Wyeth Chemical Company of New
York, who has placed on the market a
superior preparation of Sage, combined
with Sulphur and other valuable reme
dies for dandruff, itching scalp, and
thin, weak, falling hair.
The beauty of the hair depends more
on its rich, even shading than anything
else. Don't have dry, harsh faded hair,
when a simple, harmless remedy will
bring back the color in a few davs; and
don't be tormented with dandruff, itch
ing scalp and loose, falling hairs.
W yeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy
will quickly correct these troubles, and
give color, strength and beauty to your
