of this city are less worried over the
disappearance of Dr. W. R. Ely than
are Chicagoans. Few, barring rela
tives take stock in the foul play theory
advanced by the Chicago relatives.
Much sympathy is expressed for
Mrs. Maud Walker Ely, the physi
cian's wife, their four small children,
and the aged mother of the missing
man, all of whom stand to lose finan
cially through his absence. J. W.
Walker, father of Mrs. Ely, is here
from Mazon, trying to disentangle the
financial situation left by Dr. Ely. He
desires to take his daughter and her
children home with him. Mr. Walker
talked little, but summed up the sit
uation by saying: "I don't believe Dr.
Ely 1b dead; he will bob up again one
of these days."

in one of Dr. Ely's unprofitable real
estate transactions, Mr. Morris is
the man who found Dr. Ely's blood
stainted cap under the Twelfth street
In addition to his church, domestic,
and financial troubles, Dr. Ely was fac
ing a suit for alleged malpractice
brought by C. M. Smith, a young busi
ness man of Gibson City. A year ago
Dr. Ely performed an operation on
Mrs. Smith. In his comp'.aint the hus
band alleged the doctor sewed some
cotton in Oie wound. Smith claimed
to have gone to an expense of $600
correcting the injury, and when Ely
refused to settle Smith sued for dam
ages. When the case was called re-
! cently Dr. Ely pleaded illness and had
the case continued until December.
At the time of her marriage to Dr.
Ely Mrs. Ely received $9,000 in cash
from her father. Today she has a
chance for a $2,500 equity in the
house where she resides. It has been
Dr. Ely's misfortune to get his pro
perty badly invo'.ved. He owned an
equity in the property at 4339 Lexing
ton street, Chicogo, when he moved to
Melvin street, Gibson City, nearly four
A year ago he traded tlie Melvin
street property and the Lexington
street property for the big ten-room
Damon residence on North Sangamon
avenue, Gibson City. He divided most
of these rooms and fitted up the place
as a sanitarium and seemed in a fair
way to prosper "when Mrs. Ely com
plained against Miss Helen Langdon.
The church committee advised her to
eject Miss Langdon from the sanitar
ium. She did. Miss Langdon is now
at Iron River, Mich.
Ely assumed a $2,000 mortgage
when he acquired the sanitarium. Lat
er he cancelled that debt with a $3,000
loan secured elsewhere, and he kept
on borrowing until he had the house
incumbered for $5,000. His mother is
security for $1,000 he borrowed from
John Ketchenfaut on a note.
Three members of the church ses
sion, feeling kindly toward the physi
cian, pointed out the errors of his
ways. He told the committee his
wife had no occasion to be jea'.ous and
that his friendship for Miss Langdon
was of a platonic nature and purely
professional. One of the committee
last night frankly acknowledged "be
ing disgusted with his efforts to make
Ely see his mistake." The church
committee Induced Mrs. Ely to leave
the doctor during the month of Sep
tember, hoping her temporary absence
would bring him to his senses. There
was little change on her return Oct. 1.
Several days after the disappear
ance Mrs. Ely was annoyed by a long
distance telephone message from an
anonymous source announcing "the
body has been found in a car of re
fuse at Hoopeston." Last midnight
she received an anonymous message
from Chicago announcing that Dr. Ely
was alive and well.
When Smith threatened to sue Ely

IN FIERCE SCRAP OVER
DOLLAR ELECTION BET
An election bet of a dollar was the
cause of a fierce fight on Twentieth
street last evening between two col
ored men known as Barker and
"Shorty," upon meeting Barker
near the depot, demanded the dollar
bet he had won. Barker refused to I
pay, saying that he was just "kidding" I
when he made the bet. A heated al
tercation followed which resulted in j
a fistic battle. Both men were con-1
siderably battered up. "Is you going' !
to gib me dat dollah? , demanded
"Phorty," glaring at his opponent
after he had knocked him to the pave
ment, "hors de combat," with a stiff
ri;ht to the jaw. "Ah sure is." ex
claimed Barker, "it am no use gettin
killed fo' a dollah."

the club officials but also of the state
FAVORED NEXT SEASON
Chic Fraser may not be in the
Three-Eye league next year. The De
catur directors do not want to pay him
the money his contract calls for. They
are considering Bill Gorman, short
stop of the team, as his successor.
While no action has yet been taken
It is understood that some of the di
rectors are favoring Gorman as suc
cessor to Chic.'
Springfield is also on the look-out
for a playing manager and it is un
derstood that First Baseman Len
Schroeder is favored for the position.
Many school children suffer from
constipation, which is often the cause
of seeming stupidity at lessons. Cham

are an ideal medicine to give a child

effect and will cure even chronic con
stipation. Sold by all druggists.
