A Mol ne woman named Emma Olsen,
but who is more commonly known as
"Drunke ) Emma," is serying ten days in

of articlis of wearing apparel, jewelry
and Don j from houses where she was

amountlrg to $16. was found to hve

Anothet and still later swindle is the
sharper aaa a double fountain pen, which
is so ar anged that it uses two kinds of

when t le sharper writes whatever be

Death sfi Koterelewtlat.
Dr. C 0. Parry died at nis home north
of Davenport at 12:30 this morning. His
death was the result of a severe attack of
influenza. He was born in Worcester
shire, England, Aug. 28, 1823. He came
to America at an early age. His parents
settled in New York and embarked in
farming. He graduated from Union
Medical college at Schenectady, N. T-,
in bis early manhood, and early in life he
found, too, that he had an especial liking
for the sciences and especially for the
study of botany. In 1846 the family
moved to Davenport and the young doc
tor began the practice of medicine in that
city. His professional career, however,
did not last long. He found tbe fields
and forests and the wonders and beauties
of nature more inviting to him and he
soon drifted out of the ranks of active
practice and became a botanist, and that
only, and be perhaps collected together
as many contributions to science as any
one man in America, and he held
many public positions in connection
with national surveys and exploring ex
peditions. In 164. in particular, in
company with Ur. i. w. vene, ,r mis
city, be explored the Rockies, and espes
cially Pike's, Long's and tbe Middle
peak. Much of the material accumulated
by this great explorer and scientist has
been contributed to the Davenport Acad
emy of Science, while many of the speci
mens are deposited in tbe Herneria of
Europe and America. He was familiar
ly acquainted with the leading scientists
of America and of Europe.
A Happy Rvt-st

ing the last strains of tbe inspiring march,
the double doors in the parlor swung open
and the bride and groom stepped for

trope henrietta and velvet With a hand
some wreath of cut flowers and looked

Tbe committee of the national hone of
representatives yesterday ordered favors

wnat comes from having a congressman
