Three-Eye Can't Let Go
Tearney or Fill Gaps in
FIVE CLUBS ARE LUKEWARM
Seem Disposed to Let Franchise
Begging Rather Than Dig Up
As a business meeting the annual
roundup of the Three-Eye league
. which cloedtin Chicago yesterday af
ternoon, was i pretty much of a ftsrle.
Officers were'not elected nor was the
circuit made up. Furthermore, the
accounts of the circuit were not
stralehtened out. It leaves the league
or the rcmnaut of it, in a peculiar 6.1
uation. None of the five clubs that are In ar
rears brought any money to make a
settlement, an obviously. President Al
Tearney and the clubs which had
something coming were not disposed
to make arrangement for a new year
till the debtors came across. Presi
dent Tearney says there is $1,500 com
ing to him and he seems disposed to
remain president till he gets it, if it
takes another year or two.
Only Davenport and Peoria are sat
isfied, the former having drawn bet
ter than 60.000 and the latter above
60.000 last season, though both lost a
little money, even under an arrange
ment which forced every club to
"stand on its own bottom." as it was
expressed. With a $50 guaranty the
weaker clubs were hard hit. Decatur,
It is asserted, lost $7,000. while Bloom
lngton is $1,000 in the hole right now.
How the others stand is not known.
Dubuque pulled through with 35,000 at
tendance and is in lair shape, though
anxious to get into a circuit with Wa
terloo and Cedar Rapids.
Is the Last Straw.
As is generally ki.own the three
year agreement among the clubs has
expired and it conies hard, at the close
of a disastrous season when the last
cent was raised to keep the teams go
ing till the finish, to have to dig up for
debts to a league which has ceased to
exist and furthermore to be called up
on to plank down $500 as a guaranty
for next year, and on top of it all dig
up enough to finance the local end of
the game next season.
If the league has a quorum present
at Peoria on the 20th It w ill be a won
der. The clubs which are la debt don't
know how they are going to pay out.
let alone post a guaranty, which must
be In cash, it was strictly specified.
Three-Eye magnates do not trust each
other very far these days. At the
opening session the Quincy representa
tives offered a check for $500 as evi
dence that the city would stick, but
notice was served later that only hard
cash would do.
It looks very much as if four or five
franchises would go begeing at the
Peoria roundup. Certainly Rock Is
land w-111 not be in the market for one
so long as conditions are as they are.

THE DAY IN DAVENPORT
J. Brunswich de Cor-
orupa. committed from here to the
federal penitentiary at Stillwater for
10 years by United States District
Judge Smith McPherson for violation
of the Mann white slave act, has been
discharged from the government asy
lum at Washington, D. C. according
to Immigration Inspector T. H. Strat
ton of Vns Moines, who was la the
city a short time yesterday. Corompa
was taken back to prison, being placed
in the federal penitentiary at For3
Leavenworth, Kan., because of the
overcrowded condition at Stillwater,
lie spent several months at the fed
eral asylum, bring sent there violent
ly insane. It is said that although he
has been released from the institution,
his condition is not greatly Improved.
Corompa. it is stated, refers constant
ly " to Autumn Stonebraker, the 10-year-old
girl whom he lured from her
home la CrawfordsviUe, Ind., and com
pelled to tramp across the country
from Chicago. The couple was picked
up, half-famished, in a box car at
Muscatine. Shortly afier the girl told
the stcry which caused Corompa to be
held for violation of the Mann act.
Corompa married the girl in Chicago,
but grossly mistreated her, according
to the story told in court by the man's
child-wife. From Chicago the couplo
walked to Sabula, Iowa, and from there
went to Rock Island by boat. From
Rock Island the pair came to Daven
port, and after staying here a while
made their way to Muscatine. At the
time the couple was taken into cus
tody the girl was wearing male at
tire. Coromba states that he loved
the girl, and "would give all" to see
her. A federal official who asked to
have his name withheld declared that
he believes the man is telling the truth
when he makes this assertion. The
official says, in his opinion, tha girl
was not entitled to pity, and clem
ency. If any, should have been ex
tended to Corompa, He says the rec
ord of the girl was of an unsavory na
ture before she met Corompa. The
official believes Corompa-s statement
to the effect that he fell in love with
the girl because she reminded him of
his dead wife. Corompa was men
tally deranged when he met Autumn
Stonebraker, according to the officer.
A perjury charge agaii.st Corompa is
pending in federal court here. He was
indicted on this count at the April
term. Corompa's health Is failing rap
idly and his death is believed to not
be far ofl.

The question is, what kind of sparks
does your brain generate?
The brain, like a battery, must be supplied with certain elements to generate
thought properly. These brain elements are water, albumen and phosphate of potash.
If any of these are lacking in the daily food, brain and body energy are vitally lessened.
Are any lacking? Listen! Water and albumen are plentifully supplied in ordi
nary food, but phosphate of potash together with other mineral elements is almost
wholly lacking in white bread and all white flour products.

"Noodles" Fagan scored a big hit
with the "kids" of Rock Island in his
talk at the Empire theatre yesterday
afternoon, the opportunity being made
possible through the courtesy of The
Argus, this newspaper with Mr. Fagan
giving the school children a treat.
"Noodles" marshaled quite a big host
at the Empire theatre at 4:30 o'clock,
preceding the show and three cheers
wre given, by the children for Rock Is
land's biggest newspaper.
The theatre was packed to the limit
and officers were on hand to prevent
crowding of the exits and on this ac
count quite a number were turned
away but the interior of the theatre
held all it could in any kind of com
fort The crowd was entirely repre
sentative of the city and included
"kids" from every section of the city
and 1,871 admissions were registered
at the box office.
Mr. Fagan Is distinctly on the uplift
with his talks to children and the ad
dress was more like a father's advice
to his growing son than from a stran
ger In the city. "Noodles" asked the
boys to eliminate cigarets, cigars
and liquor from becoming a part of
their daily habits and told of the em
ployers who frequently asked these
questions when boys were coming into
the field of workers. Especially is he
severe on the cigaret habit.
School Days Sung.
"Noodles," however, is not confining
his missionary work on the cigaret
habit to his lectures. Grown men who
are addicted to the "pills" frequently
get a pleasant, courteous and helpful
word from him on the habit and the
examples which they are setting.
At the theatre "Noodles" was prac
tically the whole show. Following his
talk he gave the children some very
fine illustrated views, the scenes be
ing presented to him by an educational
society. At one time during the show
the films came slowly and .Noodles'
suggested a song.
'We're going to sing Tchool Days',"
The orchestra struck up the tune
and the boys and girls sang through

newsies were entertained at the Em

a parade was formed and all of the

in military formation.
They marched to the rear of the the
atre where a special section had been
reserved for them. After the show
they again formed in line and went
back on the stage where a general good
time was enjoyed.
Contests on Stage.
Games and sports including soup
drinking races, sausage eating contests
and barrel boxing contests were in full
swing. The kiddies were given one of
the best times of their life, and all
voted "Noodles" one good fellow.
The feature contest on the stage by
the newsboys was the yell contest.
"Noodles" had about 10 of the lads yell
"Rock Island Argus, all about the big
fire." One witty newsy who yelled
"Rock Island Argus, all about the sui

mined by the applause from the audience.
