ROCK ISLANDER'S TEAM IN
CARBON CLIFF RUNAWAY
A team driven by Hector Dehutdster
of Rock Island became frightened and
tan away in the village of Carbon
Cliff, in the east part of the county, at
8 o'clock this morning, resulting in the
painful injury of Mrs. Dehutdster, who
was thrown from the rig. Dehutdster
and bis boy and Mr. Stroby, the other
occupants of the conveyance, jumped
and were not hurt. Mrs. Dehutdster
sustained Injuries to her ankle and
arm. She was. given medical atten
tion. The team was caught after run
ning a short distance. The harness
was torn to shreds and the shafts of
the buggy broken. -The horses were
unhurt. Mr. Dhutdster and his party
were on their way to Colona when the
BOYS PREPARE TO
LEARN TO SWIM
Exceptional Interest Being
Taken in Y.M.C.A.Proposi
tion for Free Lessons.
Some publishers in ancient Rome
could turn out books rapidly and
cheaply. . A publisher of the Augustan
era produced 1.000 copies of the sec
ond book of Martial In ten hours and
these sold at about 12 cents apiece,
gave him a profit of 100 per cent. This
was done by employing slaves care
fully trained to write swiftly and
legibly. Working in batches of 100,
with an overseer dictating the book in
hand, the task was completed In a
very short time. As soon as the copies
were written - they were revised, cor
rected, rolled up and bound. Being
slaves, the men required only mainte
nance from their master and thus he
could afford to sell their productions
at a very low rate.
The boys who cannot swim are
warming up to the proposition made by
the Y. M. C. A. to teach them free of
charge next week in a special series
of lessons. The youngsters are com
ing in daily to register for the cam
paign, and they can hardly wait for
next week to come.
Each boy Is required to secure the
consent of his parents before he can
enroll, in order that no misunder
standings may arise. All the swim
mers will be under the personal care
and instruction of the physical di
rector, Mr. Clevett, and every effort
will be made to guard against acci
dents. A free exhibition in the swimming
pool will be given next Monday after
noon at 2:30, in which some of the
older boys will participate. Any boy
who brings his mother 'will be ad
mitted free, and any mother who
brings her boy will also gain free ad
mission. This is arranged in order to
give the mothers a chance to see the
place where the boys are instructed.
and to get an idea as to the kind of
At 7:45 Monday evening, a swim
ming exhibition free to men only will
be put on in the pool. Many fancy
stunt3 in swimming and diving will be
shown by some of the expert swim
mers. Only men will be admitted to
this exhibition, and the preference is
given to men who are -not members of
the association, and to those members
who cannot swim.
Beginning at 5 o'clock Monday aft
ernoon, special swimming lessons will
be given to men who cannot swim,
dally through the week.
For the one week, June 1 to 6, a
very unusual opportunity Is given to
men to Join the Y. M. C. A. for the
summer at a low rate of cost, which
gives them the privilege of enjoying
the swimming pool and playground
during the entire hot-season. This:
special membership offer will be with
drawn after June 6, so that it' is im
portant for all -who wish to get in to do
so without delay.
The senior gymnasium class of the
Y. M. C. A. has no very great need for
a gymnasium or a playground either,
when they can use the whole city for
their work.. Last night, led by the
physical director, 15 stalwart young
men, attired in their gymnasium cos
tumes, took a long run and walk out
through the city, covering several
miles in their journeying.
The men are finding great pleasure
and profit in this method of physical
culture since the coming of warm
weather, and they are all enthusiastic
over it. Instead of staying indoors
and . going through the regular class
work, the class goes out for a run,
after dark, and . thus gets fresh air
and change of scene as well as the exercise.
