MR. HURST IS NOT
Reports of an alarming nature con
cerning the reported illness in Chi
cago of Hon. Elmore W. Hurst of this
city, found their way into the Chi
cago papers this morning, which re
ports, however, happily are unfounded.
The Record-Herald, for instance, says:
"Elmore Hurst of Rock Island,
named by the Illinois delegation at
Haltimore as its choice for the demo
cratic nomination for vice president,
is critically ill at the Congress hotel.
Mr. Hurst during the campaign as
sumed charge of the business men's
bureau of the western headquarters at
the personal solicitation of William
Jennings Bryan. He has been offered
the post of minister to Denmark by
President Wilson, and his acceptance
will depend on his recovery from his
The Associated Press carried In its
report today an announcement from
Chcago that Mr. Hurst Is much im

no time been considered Berlous. Ttie
facts of the matter are mat xwr.
Hurst overworked himself during t lie
campaign, and during the winter sought
recuperation at Hot Springs, W. Va.,
and later at Palm Beach, Fla. On his
return home two weeks ago, upon the
advice of hla family, he consulted a
specialist in Chicago, who informed
him that all he required was complete
rest and insisted that he take it at
Reynolds had an $S,000 fire late last
night that might have wiped out a
large portion of the business section of
the town but for the splendid work of
the volunteer fire brigade.
The damage was to a building owned
by Daniel Montgomery of Rock Island
and in which the Ira St. Onge general
merchandise store was located. The
St. Onge stock was completely wiped
out, while the building was gutted.
The St. Onge stock was fully pro
tected by insurance, $(1,000 being car
ried. It is estimated Air. Montgomery
is a loser by at least $2,000.
The building was two stories. The
second floor was a hall reutod by the

THREE SMALL POX
Measures to prevent a spread of
smallpox are being taken by the school
and village authorities at Carbon Cliff,
where three cases have been discov
ered in one family. Walter Lloyd,
an employe of the Silvis shops of the
Rock Island road, his wife and 18-ear-old
daughter are the victims of
the disease. '
The Carbon Cliff schools have been
dosed for two weeks and the village
has issued a proclamation preventing
public gatherings for a similar period.
