A Well-Attended Meeting at Hupt
Me nth well's Office Who are Ires-
ent lHncnaMon and Experiences,
The annual convention of the North
ern Illinois association of county super
intendents of schools assembled in Coun
ty Hupt. J. H. Southwell's office at 9
o'clock this morning. The association is
informal in its nature and in its proceed
ings. It has no officers, the state super
intendent of public instruction presiding
at all the meetings. There was no pre
pared topics really and no formal speech
making. The superintendents compos
ing the association came together for in
terchange of views, and the proceedings
are, therefore, more of the order of i
conversational meeting than of a debate
Thej are rather experience meetings, the
superintendents believing that more of a
mutual advantage and advancement is
obtained by a free and easy discussion
than would come through the stiff form
alities of a deliberation where there is
often more preparation than good healthy
production. This morning the assoc
tion confined itself largely to the expres
sion of views and experiences on the
couity supervision of schools, though
othi r subjects received attention. The
meeting continues this afternoon, and
will conclude its sessions before supper
turn-. County Supt. Southwell is ar
ranging for the entertainment of his
visi'ors in a pleasurable way also, and
his programme will include a visit to the
national arsenal on the island of Rock
Island, Davenport, Moline and other
places of interest hereabouts.

of public instruction, and his assistant,
J. D. Benedick, are both in attendance,
Supt. Edwards presiding, the following
county superintendents being present:

the Rock Island County Sabbath School
association convened in the Broadway
Presb3tcrian church this morning. Pres
ident S. D. Cleland, presiding. Today
was devoted to the institute, which was
argely attended, and the convention
proper will not be called together until

Illinois State Sabbath School association,
who is giving bible and training lessons
on biblical history of the holy land, the
place and purpose of the Sabbath school,
its organization and officers, etc. Prof.
Hamill illustrates his course of instruc

and his talks are exceedingly interesting
and profitable to all who bear him.
This evening there is to be a song ser

Mission and Methods," and an address by
Prof. Hamill on "Sibbath School Train

The funeral of the late County Re
corder Fritz Susemiehl, was held from
the family residence, 1034 West Ninth
street, Davenpor', at 2 o'clock yesterday.
It was attended by the friends of the fam-
ly and the treasurer, clerk and auditor of
the county. It is stated, says the Demo
crat, that one reason for the despondency
which Mr. Susemiehl was noticed to be
suffering in the latter days of bis life is
found in the disappointment he met with
in regard to his patrimony. As he stated
in the document which he intended should
stand as his will, he expected something
between $6,000 and 7,000 from the
estate of his parents in the old country.
Some time during the winter he received
a letter from there informing him of the
death of his mother, and apprising him of
the fact that he bad not inherited one
cent from bis parents. This was noticed
at the time to considerably dishearten
him, and is thought to have had some ef
fect in increasing bis melancholy and dis
content. The sensational episode at the
house of the widow of the late Sheriff
Nat Leonard Saturday night, no doubt
hastened the commission of the deed

Nela Olson, a boy of sixteen, son of
John Olson, of Moline. met with an un
fortunate accident this morning. At 7
o'clock he was on his way to work at the
Corn Planter works, and was walking
along the railroad track, when through
some means he fell bcnea.h a freight train
on the Rock Island road and his right arm
was crushed from the shoulder to the
e'.bow. He was brought to St. Luke's
hospital late in the forenoon and it is
thought the injured arm will have to be
amputated. The boy does not give a
satisfactory explanation as to how the ac
cident happened. He says he stepped
out of the track to let the train pass and
tripped and fell against it, but many are
inclined to the belief that it is the same
never-ending old story of attempting to
board a moving train.
