THE gtOCK I: PSHAW) ARGUS: THURSDAY, APRIL, 4, 1889.
HUNTING THE HEIRS.
Tbe VMlare-a of Ivl4 (d4ar4,
Harderer, and the That II aa
Been Attained ia Haatlnsr Them tip.
Tbe Akgus hai noted the success at
tained by Sheriff Silvis in finding the
heirs of David Stoddard, bung in Rock
Island for murder in 1855, and for whom
there ia a fortune of $25,000 at Calusa,
Cat. Sheriff Silvis, a few weeks ago re
ceived a letter from Stewart Harris, of
Calusa, ChI., asking for information as to
tbe whereabouts of Stoddard's children,
if any still exist, and stating tbe fact that
to them was left an estate of $25,000 by
recent death of an aunt in California
The Anoua published these facts and it
waa not long before many letters came in
response from people quite anxious and
ready to prove tbelr relationship to tbe
murderer, Stoddard. Among these let
ters was one from Mrs. Malinda Wood,
of Grand Rapids, Mich., declaring that
she was the oldest daughter of Stoddard,
stating that there were three children
who survived Stoddard two boys and
herself. The boys went into the war
and that was the last she heard of them.
Feeling pretty well satisfied that Mrs
Wood was the probable heiress as she
also submitted facts tending to establish
her identity. Sheriff Silvis communicated
tbe same to Stewart Darris, administra
tor of tbe estate that is seeking a heir,
and he is now in receipt of tbe following
letter bearing further on tbe subject:
' Calcr. Cttl., March 21. 1869.
Mr. T. 6. Silvis: Dear Sir: Yours
of March 15 received. I am under obIN
gations to you for the interest you have
taken in assisting me in finding the heirs
to tbe estate of Mr. Orilla M. Harris,
whose maiden name was Stoddard. She
was the wife of my brother, Robert Har
ris, who died in 1873, leaving ber a val
uable estate. Since the time ef tbelr
marriage, some twenty years ago, I have
not neara her snealr or her relatives back
east. Some of her relatives lived in Ca
lusa county, but they professed to
know nothing aboutany others in Illinois.
I have had a bard time in striking
the trail, but as you may supDose, I am
learning1 constantly of fresh relatives
every day. There is rot likely to be any
particular trouble in finding enough of
them to take the money out of my hands,
as soon as they prove themselves en
titled to shares of the estate.
I first learned from a citizen that Mrs
Harris had a brother, David Stoddard,
who was hung at Springfield. III., in
18G5. I wrote the sheriff there; he re
ferred me to Springfield, Mo. I accord
ingly opened correspondence with tbe
sheriff at that place, and he informed me
that Stoddard bad been executed at Rock
Island. Wbat, through you, has been
done in advertising tbe matter is likelv
to find enough heirs to use up an estate
u it was six times aa large.
Tours very respectfully,
Stewart H abb is.

you want to get McCall after you, just
tell him Will Fleming wants to see him.
Saturday was horse market day and to
see the crowds of people on the aide
walks and tbe number of horses of all
descriptions tied to hitching posts,
wagons aqd every conceivable object, a
person would judge that Baruum had
struck the town with Jumbo, or John L.
Sulliyan and Jake Kilram had pitched
their tents here to have their long looked
for bloody fight. Tbe merchants were
busy all day selling goods and undoubted
ly had the best day they have bad for
aome time; so it is evidently plain to be
seen that the Business Men's association
is not a failure and that tbe small amount
expended for newspaper advertising and
the printing and circulating of a lot of
hand bills throughout the surrounding
country, waa time and money well spant,
t as it was the means of drawing a Tast
amount of people to the town that prob
ably would have never thought of com
ing bere had it not been for tbe adver
tising. Among the buyers that were
present, there was three from Chicago,
two from Davenport and two from Mo
line. We are sorry to say, however,
that there were no sales made, as buyers
and sellers could not come to terms as to
prices, but this was not tbe fault of the
Business Men's association, as that body
did its part in tbe way of advertising and
hope that this will not discourage either
the buyers or sellers of horses on next
horse market day. which is April 13.
They may come to a better understand
ing as to the value of horses. Tbe Chi
cago, parties were satisfied with the
prices asked for several of tbe horses
but didn't want to buy less than a car
load. About the only excitement worth
mentioning was caused by a horse be
longing to-s party near Moline. The
owrer, after dickering for some time, waa
about to close the bargain, when Mr..
Horse objected by breaking his
fastenings and running down . Main

Mr. Jarkfton Expounds the Law.
Mr. Henry J. Jackson, secretary of tbe
commissioner of emigration, said:
"The right of the board to reject immi
grants, who, on examination, are found un
able to maintain themselves, was fully tested
in 18S4. Tko commissioners claimed, under
the act of congress to regulate immigration,
tho judicial right to determine who were
likely to become a public charge, and in this
opinion they were supported by the secretary
of the treasury and fully sustained by tbe
"In July, 1884, fifty-two persons unable to
take care of themselves without becoming a
public chorgo wero Tound on board one of the
steamships arriving at this port These per
sons were roruruui to the country whence
thoy come, and for them a writ of habeas
corpus was obtained, returnable before the
New York supreme com t.
"Much difficulty was experienced in mak
ing a proper examination of the immigrants
immediately on arrival, and it was suggested
to tho stcamr.liip companies that they give a
bond to tho commissioners of emigration in
the sum of $1,000, conditioned to return to
the country whence they came nil immigrant
passpngcrs brought by their vnsols who, on
examination at Castle Garden, should tie ad
judged as not entitled to land. This bond
was proposed und submitted to tho steamship
companies, who acceptad it, and it was duly
approved by the secretary of tho treasury."

Snow Fort in War.
A great many young play warriors have
built forraidable-snow forts, but they never
have imagined probably that there could be
such a thing as the use of snow forts by ac
tual soldiers and for purposes of rfofonse
Lately, however, the Norwogiun officers
havo been conducting some interesting ex
periments In snow fortifications.
A colonel in the royal service recently hod
constructed uitrenchment.s of acked snow,
about three yards iu thickness. Then he
placed a firing detachment a distance of
thirty-three yards from tho intrenchmonts
and caused more than three hundred rule
shots to be fired into the fort.
After tbe firing tho snow walls were ex
amined and It was found that not a single
rifle ball had penetrated more than a yard
and a quarter into tho snow.
Tbe bullets were found flattened out, as if
they bad been fired Into some hard substance,
-Such breastworks would undoubtedly prove
very useful against Infantry in a winter cam
paigu in a snowy country. But a military
force intrenched behind them would have oc
casion to fear a thaw or a heavy rain quite
as much as the bullets of the enemy. Youth's
"In advertising Gillette's new play, 'A
Legal Wreck,"1 said the agent, '-Uarry
Powers, of Hooley's, has unroiincionsly been
tbe cause of bitter strife bo.iweou a number
of young lawyers of this city. One day a
young linib of the law took a bill announcing
the play, cut out the title cud pasted it upon
tho door of a rival lawyer across the hall.
This lawyer was at the matinee at the time,
and he returned to his otllce before he went
home, to tear from his door tho notice,
'Gone to court back in half an hour,' when
he was chagrined to find under his name on
tho door the legend, 'A Legal Wreck.' Look
ing across tbe ball he found his rival's door
adorned with a card reading, 'Gone to the
law library.' lie fixed the offensive placard
under the rival's name and then went around
the corner and discovered him eating a cheese
sandwich and drinking a glass of beer in tbe
'law library.' The two young lawyers nearly
came to blows when they found each other
the guilty party, and when tbe story leaked
out the 'Legal Wreck' posters were in de
maud in law offices all around town. When
Mr. Powers heard of the row he created he
had copies of the novel, 'A Legal Wreck,'
sent around to show that the play had noth
ing to do with a busted attorney." Chicago
. The Duration of lightning.
It has become important, in connection
with the newer ideas on the lightning dis
charge, to determine whether the flash has a
sensible duration or is instantaneous. Ac
cordingly M. Janssen, the well known French
physicist, has devised a camera for measur
ing tbe time occupied by a flash. It is made
double; one half containing a disc of sensi
tized paper, which is fixed ; the other half
similar disc, which is rotated round an axis
through its center and perpendicular to its
plane. Tho velocity of Its rotation is known.
It follows that when a lightning flash is photographed-
by this double camera the two
images will not be exactly alike and capable
of being superposed, becuuse one plate is in
motion whUu the other is fixed. But as a
matter of fact M. Jausseu finds that the Im
ages be has taken are capable of superposi
tion, and therefore he infers the duration of
the flash to be very small. Boston Herald.
A Cowboy's IUumrkable Nerve.
One of tho pluckiest fellows that ever lived
in Montana is John Myers, 20 years old, who
baa just gone through a thrilling experience.
He is a cowboy, and was hunting for horses
with a party on tbe Stillwater river. He
was missing Tuesday night when the others
came in. It was thought be had stopped
at some "squaw man's" house, and no fear
waa felt for his safety. Two days after the
men in the camp noticed a dark object slowly
sliding down tbe aide of an opposite bluff.
It was Myers. Both of his legs were broken
and his head and face horribly lacerated. He
was weak from loss of blood and the ex
posure he bad undergone, dragging himself
along for thirty hours in tbe snow. His horse
stumbled and threw him on the rocks and
ran away. He crawled up the side of a
steep bluff where few men could walk. Hel

The Actor and the Buzzer.
Soma tinro ago a company of traveling
actors were playing "Macbeth" at a colliery
Tillage within the proverbial 100 miles from
Newcastle. All went well until tbe last scene
where Macbeth ' was - being pursued by
Macduff. Macbeth enters breathless with ex
citement, and in a tragic manner places his
hand to his ear in a listening attitude, ex
claiming, "Hark I what noise is that I heart
Enemies are on my track 1" Just then tbe
buzzer at the colliery was blowing, notifying
that the pit was idle the next day. A pitman
in the gallery shouted at tbe top of his
voice: "It's the buxzor, ye beggorl Tbe pit's
off the morn !' 'Newcastle (ling.) Chronicle.

For a good spring medicine we confidently
recommend Hood's Sarsaparilla. By Its use
the blood Is purified, enriched and vitalized,
that tired feeling is entirely overcome and
the whole body given strength and vigor.
The appetite Is restored and sharpened, the
digestive organs are toned, the kidneys and
liver invigorated. If you have never tried
do so this season. It is a thoroughly honest
and reliable preparation, purely vegetable,
and contains no injurious ingredients what
ever. Thousands who have taken It with
benefit testify to its peculiar curative power.
"I take Hood's Sarsaparilla as a spring
tonic, and I recommend it to all who have
that miserable tired feeling." C. Fabmzlkb,

Hood's Sarsaparilla Is prepared from Sana
parilla, Dandelion, Mandrake, Dock, Juniper
Berries, and other well known vegetable
remedies, oy a combination, proportion and
process peculiar to itself, and by which the
full medicinal value of all the Ingredients
used is secured. Hence It possesses superior
and positive curative power.
" Every spring for years I have made It a
practice to take from three to five bottles of
Hood's Sarsaparilla, because I know it purifies
the blood and thoroughly cleanses the system
of all impurities. That languid feeling, called
'spring fever,' will never visit the system that
has been properly cared for by this never-
failing remedy." VT. II. Lawbence, Editor
