The Arocb several days g 'poke of
ft sensational elopement of a well known
Rock Island young lady and ber uncle, a
popular young man living in Daren port.
The namea were at the time suppressed,
in consideration of the feelings of the
girl's parents in this city who were heart
broken and prostrated over their daugh
ter's action, and who hoped that she
might return without baring become a
party to a matrimonial ceremony, but in
this they were to be disappointed, for the
ceremony which t.nited John Ilien. of
Davenport, and Miss Irene Ilien. of this
city, was performed at JanesTille, Wis.,
last Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock, the
couple returning to Davenport the last of
the week and taking up their home
at the Si. Jame's hotel, where the
groom is steward, he being also ca
terer for the fashionable Piute club of
that city. The bride is a danghter f
Mr. and Mrs. Phillip Hi. n, of 922 Second
avenue, Mr. Ilien being the inventor of
the celebrated car coupler that bears his
name, and the groom is his half brother.
The eloping couple have been enjoying
each other's company for a long time. but
the young lady's parents had no kit a of
a love affair until recently. Tbey strong
ly objected to a marriage of the twain,
and it was the rejection of this proposi
tion on their part that led to their daugh
ter's flight from this city last Wednesday
as detailed heretofore in the ARors.

Are the three cities infi-stal with fire
bugs? Judging from the number of un
mistakahle instances of attempted incen
diansm recently, one would naturally ar
rive at such conclusion. Last night
about 12 o'clock, a citizen living on Third
avenue between Seventeenth and Eigh
teenth streets, discovered a Ore in a pile
of boxes and lumber in the rear of Mc
C'abe's Second avenue Mock, and at once
gave an alarm. The fire depar;ment re
s ponder! in good time; esiecially was
this true of the Franklins, who got sec
ond water after a long run, and "Unser
Fritz," the company's intelligent horse,
was for going right through the flames
without halting. It was due no doubt to
the prompt work of the firemen that a
conflagration was prevented, the dimes
leaping high and fastening themselves on
the woodwork ahom w .koai in the
second story of McCahe's building, and at
one time getting inside and burning a hole
through some cloth. But the firemen
beat the deyouring element back and thus
saved the property. The loss as it is
will not exceed flisi.
There was also an incendiary fire in
Davenport last night, an unoccupied
frame dwelling on Third street near Iowa,
being burned. It is an interestiLg coin

arson was attempted here and in Daven

John Siegrisl made his regular Monday
morning appearance in the police court
this morning under escort of Officer
Carlson. It was the usual charge of raising
a racket around home and practicing pu

trate Wivill fined him $10 and costs.

of tbe disease, and giving the patient
strength, by building up the constitution
and assisting nature in doing its work.
