"Rudolph, take ctre of me." These
were the la?t words of Assessor C. H.
Ritter on enrth. They were spoken to
his friend. Rudolph Schwecke, on the
platform at the C. R. I. & P. depot at
WeBt Liberty at 1 :43 this morning. Hav-
ng said thorn he closed his eyes and
breathed bis last, having fallen victim to
most terrible fate. It will occasion
surprise to a great many to know that
Mr. Ritter is dead; it will be shocking
news to all to learn the manner in wnich
he met deat'i. Yesterday he was happy
and as genial with all as it was his cus
tom to be. Last night, in company with
Mr. Rudolph Schwecke, he started for
Co! fait Springs. Iowa, for the benefit
of bis het.ltb, hoping to receive re-
ief from rheumatic troubles. The
two Kft en the 12:81 train. They
pent sornr time in the smoker and
hen Walcolt was passed went into the
chair car where Mr. Ritter met an old
friend he ht.d not seen for ten years, and
the two engaged in conversation, Mr.
Schwecke foally dropping off to sleep.
When Wts'. Liberty was reached Mr. Rit
ter and his friend went out on the plat
form and v alked to and fro conversing
while the train was waiting for connec
tions. Wl en the train started Mr. Ritter
umped on to the steps of the coach be
tween the baggage car and the smoker,
and, it beit:g a vestibule train, the doors
to the plaform were closed, and finding
he could not open them, he jumped
off, mbkiD a misstep as he alighted and
twisting Lis leg somewhat,' but he
uickiy recovered himself and by this
time 4two cars bad passed and be
grasped the bandies as he sup
posed of the rear of the chair car,
but instead he caught the railings on the
platforms of two different coaches, and
was thus between the two cars. He
managed to get a foothold with
ne foot on the rear coach, but in
swinging bis other foot be caught it be
tween the bumpers, and it became fast.
Thus be was held in his perilous posi
tion. A oar repairer, however, witness
ng his danger, caught hold of his body
and attempted to push him up so that he
could recrver himself. The train was
moving sll this time, and the car re
pairer ran along with the car, and to the
end of the high platform where he was
obliged to let go when Mr. Ritter fell
under the car.. One truck passed over
his right Meg, and one wheel of the sec
ond truck over the left leg, cutting in off
the knee, when Engineer James
Dyer brought the train to a stop. Up to
this time Mr. Schwecke had herd noth
ng of the fate of his friend and compan
ion and was then awakened by a lady
passenger, who touched him on the
shoulder and informed him that his friend
was under the train. Mr. Schwecke
rushed out of the car almost dazed by the
nformat on and disposed to discredit it.
fie reached the platform and there saw
the prostrate form Of Mr. Ritter lying
across the track. With the assistance of
train men and fellow passengers, the body
was taken from its position and placed
pnn a stretcher. Mr. Ritter was still
breathing and conscious. He recognized
Mr. Schwecke's voice, and turning his
eyes toward him, said appealingly: "Ru
dolph, tt.ke care of me." and closing his
eyes, qiietly and peacefully passed
from earth. It ss the most touch-
ng scene. Mr. gchwecke save, he
had ever witnessed, and many who
stood about the dying man on the moon
lit platform were moved to tears. A doc
tor was summoned but it was too late to
o any tiling when he arrived; Mr. Ritter
had expired within eight minutes from
the time he met his fate. The car res
pairer had run with the train about fifteen
feet trying to save him.
Upoc examination of the body it was
found that the right leg was severed
above the knee, doubled back and driven
up into the bowels, this I eing the direct
cause c f death, while the left leg was cut
off at the knee. There were also slight
scratches about the face and neck.
Mr. Schwecke at once took the re'
mains n charge, secured the services of
an undertaker, and had the body em
balmed, clothed and otherwise prepared
for burial. An inquest was held on the
remaits by the coroner of Muscatine
countv. and a verdict rendered that the
deceased came to his death by accident.

A. P. Almgren, who is a farmer a few

Republican scribe yesterday morning with
this somewhat startling announcement:
'I wish you would warn people to look
out for a large, live alligator, that I
found lying in the sun, across the road
way, at the first culvert above Moline,
when coming to the city today." It is
about six feet long, with an immense
mouth, and returned to the water on his
approach. He sajs it is large enough to
dispose of a good sized person, and
thinks it not safe in passing that way. It
is rather an unusual sight so far from the
the swamps of the south. The Republi
can says: "It might be well to lay for
Mr. Alligator, and put him out of the
way. It is found on the river road (when
not in the water) at the first culvert after
leaving the city."

THE MOVEMENT OF SILVER.
Shipments Go Jnst the Keren of Pre
dictions. NEW York. July 80. Over 1,230.000
ounces of silver bullion were shipped to
London last week, and this week nearly as
much haa been ordered for ship
ment. Announcement was made yester
day morning that 400,000 ounces more
had been ordered for shipment on thia
week's btramships. Thia has given rise to
much comment, Itct-ause it has been
predicted that as soon a the silver bill
was passed thi country would be flooded
with the silver of foreign countries. The
actual fact! have been precisely the re
verse. A Sort of It n 11 Morrment.
A month or so before the passage of the
ilver bill London sent over 1,500,000
ounces of silver bullion to this country.
This was not because the Englishmen
thought the ailver bill would pass, but,
on the contrary, because they thought It
would not. pass, and they wished to profit
by the Ligher price over here. Now the
stream has set in the other way, and it
bids fair to continue until the deinand for
silver here to.meet the reo.niretAents" of
the new silver bill becomes greater than
the demand over there.
