East Mollne boy, aged about 20 year,
was jailed Saturday he made an at
tempt to strangle himse.f. Whether
the attempt was made In earnest or

after the attempt was made did not
show any laceration of the flesh, and
it is supposed that Weinberger held
onto the cord with his hands until
the cord gave way from the weight of

Poles and Wires Must Come Down.
All poles, wires and other street ob

Union Electric Telephone company
must be removed before May 1 or legal
steps will be taken to force action.
A resolution to this end was introduc

city street department has experienced
all kinds of difficulty with damaged
poles, broken wires, etc., belonging to
the company which has no one here to
look after the property or to make re
pairs when needed. During the re

was particularly apparent and now the
