MORE D3ATHS FROM HEAT

Mrs. Joka Vomer Pimrnvm Away as a
Ureal t r the Oppreaslve Traapera
tor The Other Fatal Caswa aad
People wbo retired Saturday night with
a refreshing breeze blowing across their
bed and loot ing to a milder temperature
yesterday morning found their mistake
when they awoke. Up to one o'clock
yesterday tho heat was the most Intense
and oppressive that has yet been ex
pt rienced. The storm of yesterday was
one of the most grateful things in the
way ot a wentber treat that has ever betn
sent to a f uffering people. Following
the storm th: temperature declined grad
ually and in .he evening was 74. The
night was th'i most comfortable for sleep
ing that we have had in eight days. To
day it is wanner, but there is a pleasant
breeze, and ufter the scorching ordeal
through which we passed last week, we
have no very grievous complaints.
The sixth death from overheat, and the
most distressing oneyet, occurred this
morning. Ms. Laura Forner. wife of
Mr. John Fo-ner, died at 5 o'clock, after
an illness dat ng from Saturday evening.
She was up about the house up to that
time, when sbe was prostrated by the
heat and fai ed until the hour stated
She leaves a husband and two children,
the youngest leing two weeks old and the
oldest betwee i four and five years two
sisters, Mrs. Henry Stuart, of this city.
and an unmarried sister at Grinnell,
Iowa, and hjr mother. The deceased
came to this citv with her Darents
when a child. She bad many warm
friends in litis city who will join in
sympathy for the bereaved husband.
All who were acquainted with Mrs.
Forner in li'e can bear evidence to
her affection tnd care of the little family.
The deceased was 27 years, 3 months and
18 days old. The funeral will take place
Tuesday, at 2 o'clock p. m., from the
residence, 108 Eighth street.
OTHER EFFECTS OF TUB HEAT.
A man naned Robert Meyer, whose
home is at Ee )kuk and wbo was shipped
over here by tne Davenport police, was
prostrated at ihe corner of Twenty-third
street and Fourth avenue about noon
yeslerdny and conveyed to the police sta
tion in the pt'rol wagon. Dr. Kinyon
worked two liours before resuscitating
the sufferer. He found the case to be a
combination c f epilepsy, sua stroke and
bad whisky. The man states that he was
sun struck last year and that since that
time he has been subject to epileptic
seizures, especially in hot weather.
A large nun iber of the horses in the
Moline avenue and the Union railway car
barns are unfit for use because of the
heat. A bose on the Elm street line
died of the blind staggers Saturday
night, and onj care and skill prevented
other deaths. Supt. Scbnitger has been
obliged to reduce the number of cars on
all the lines io consequence of the effect
of the heat.
The hot wi ather has had a pitiably
willing effect cn some of the police force
and they go around looking about as
tough looking as common people. The
marshal Limse f was caught up town
this morning in such scanty attire that
friends took him in charge out of com
miseration. Mrs. Maria Schultz, a lady in her
eightieth year, living at 416 Fourth
street, became leranged by the heat this
morning, and attempted suicide by
drowning in the Mississippi. Sbe was
rescued before she had accomplished her

John Ambur:?, of Moline, died between
1 and 2 o'clock jestrrday of the heat.
He was on his way home when he fell
down in an alley and soon after expired.
He was sixty years ot age.
Mrs. Elizabeth Stinger, of Moline, died
at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon from
heat prostration, aged seyenty-one.
There are a f;reat many cases of pros
tration from orer heat in the city, but
only the most serious are reported.
Nels Melslorr e, a tailor, died in Moline
Saturday evening of an attack of tLe heal
aged forty years.
In speakipg of the excessive heat and
the probability of its continuance, an old
physician said: "I would advise the pco
pie to dress cod. Let them throw aside
heavy garments . It is not a question of
appearance, but comfort and health.
The people should avoid meats and Tatty
substances, and partake freely of lemon
ade and cream noda; they should walk on
the abady side of the street and avoid
physical as well as mental excitement all
the7 possibly can. I advise the avoid
ancc of alcoholic stimulants as much as
possible. I think we will get through
with a better record than other cities
We are in excellent condition."

Detroit, Mich., June 80. Reports from
various parts of the state indicate that
the storm Saturday was unusually savera
in the country. A large section of the
farming property of Portland and Orange,
Ionia county, waa literally wiped out. A
ten-acre tract of hardwood timber owned
by William Savers was demolished, tha
trees being torn np by the roots and
twisted into various shapes. Edward
Hardwood's barn was set on fire by light
ning and three valuable horses killed, but
before it had a chance to burn the wind
tore it apart and carried it away.
Stephen Drum's residence was razed to
the ground, and Mr. Drum and his family
of five buried in the ruins. AU were more
or less bruised, but none killed. Farm
lines are entirely obliterated and crops
ruined. Reports of serious damage come
from Quincy and elewhere, but they can
not be verified, as the wires are down. In
this city much property was destroyed.
No loss of life, however, is reported any

NOT many things are harder than to select presents.
To get something that will be good of its kind, pleasing and
useful, and not too costly, is what we all wish to do, but
don't always succeed in doing.
. We store keepers all think we can meet these require
ments; but perhaps in a china store, the things to choose
from make it easier to satisfy oneself than in most others.
If you intend making birthday, wedding or anniversary
presents, wouldnt it be well to call and see what is here?
I have a great many new things, some expensive, and
some not at all so. Among staples are a new and very neat
brown decoration open stock dinner pattern; something
good enough for every day use, or for better if you don't
use fine china, and in which you can have just what you
want from a tea pot lid (for example) to a fall dinner set.
A regular 112 piece set would cost about $14.00. I have
others for less one style for $10.75, decorated in colors.
