There asrived in Davenport Monday
Miss Zoe Gayton, a California actress of
considerable renown on the Pacific coast,
accompanied by Messrs. W. J, Marshall
and J. L. Pierce. Tue trio spent yester
day in Davenport and this afternoon
came to Rock Island. They are an un
pretentious tbrro, this fair one and her
companions, and mako it a point to stop
at private boarding houses where tbey
attract little attention. The lady has undi r
a wager of $2,000 and expense, under
taken the task of walking from San Fran
cisco to New York, at a rato of progress
that will exceed fifteon miles a day, con
secutively. The courageous young woman
and her companions have so far averaged
twenty miles a day, their greatest record
being forty miles, and their least three
miles a day.
Tbey started from San Francisco, Au
gust 27, and have been on the road 133
days, having tramped 2.241 miles and are
261 miles ahead of time. They expect to
reach their destination March 1 to 15.
They have followed the Central Pacific
and Union Pacific roads, making their
ronte as direct as possible. They will
continue their jurney this evening.
Miss Uaytoa repnr.'s, that she feels no
bad effects from the walk, and says sbe is
in better condition to accomplish her un
dertaking then whan she started out.
Her companions have become accustomed
to tramping too, and inspired by the
plucky little woman, they think nothing
of cove.'ing twenty live miles ady .

The Molina Republican of Isst evening
Id an extended notice of the early life of
Emma Abbott, the great diva who died
at Sslt Lake City Monday, tells how Mo
line befriended the afterward famous sing
er when she was yet unknown to the
world. It says:
It was in 1866 that Emma, a slender
innocent faced girl of fifteen or sixteen
summers, appeared in Moline. her onlv
companion being a guitar. Her folks
had lived in Orsnd Detour, and were
therefore acquainted with John Deere'
I folks. Sbe came here to give a concert
and raise money for the support ot her
parents who were then liying in Peoria
On reaching Moline she was directed to
go to Mrs. 8. W. Wheelock, who was a
very kind and benevolent lady. Mrs
Whet lock, charmed with her talent and
pretty face, took her and cared for her
for a week. In the meantime a concert
for her benefit was gotten up and took
place in the old Congregational church,
the present C. B. & Q. freight depot,
which then stood but a little way
north of present location. Little
Enms weS assisted in this entertain
ment by Miss Irene Mills (now Mrs.
Charles Wheeler, of Kansas City.) and
Mr. C. F. Hemenway scted as door
keeper. During the performance with
which everybody was delighte 1, an acci
dent occurred, one of the strings on the
young lady's guitar breaking. In this di
lemma a young man none other than
Mr. Brown Mapes, our present liveryman,
sprang up and volunteered to get Miss
Abbott another siring. He was gone but
a short time and returned with the needed
artxle, and it is needless to say Miss Ab
bott was greatly pleased. After that the
concert proceeded smoothly.
I; seems the proceeds of the entertain
ment only amounted to 10. Miss Ab
bott told Mr. 8. W. Wheelock that sbe
bail wanted to send more than that to
her parents and wished be would lend her
$5. This he did. After tbo songstress
had drifted to New York and ber rich
friends there had raised money to
Bend ber to Italy, one day Mr. Wheelock
received a letter enclosing f. and thank
ing him for bis kindness. During that
brief stay sbe made mai.y friends here,
one of them being a you as; man named
Turner who lived with Mr. Wheelock,
and whom Emma entertained of an eve
ning sinking Scottish ditlect songs and
other ditties with guitar accompaniment
in hex inimitable fashion. After that she
vlsised Mr. and Mrs. Wheelock a num
ber of times, and shortly after her mar
riage she and ber husband gave a concert
in the Congregational church, on which
occasion tbey took time to call on ber old
benefactress, Mrs. Wheelock. who had
helped her in many ways to get a start.
Mr. Wheelock has a letter, left . by his
late wife, written by Emma Abbott from
Ita'y, expressing gratitude for sll that
this excellent laiy had done for her. Mr.
Wheelock priz e this very highly now that
the author is dead.
Mrs. Milton Jones, of this city, always
enjoyed a warm personal acquaintance
with the sing?r, who never came to the
tri-citiea that sbe did not send for Mrs.
Jenes, that sbe might enjoy several hours
pleasantly with ber.

The Davenport Denton at of this morn
ing had the following:
P. S. George of Kansas City arrived in
Davenport Tuesday morning to take our
friend Krafts home with him. He is an
old-time acquaintance of Krafts,' and
says that he never knew him to go on a
spree like this one before. According to
bis story Krafts ia a well-to-do business
man in Kansas City, where he runs a
grocery store and a meat market, and
owns a couple of residence houses, be
sides holding several houses for rcntnl in
western Kansas. He had always wanted
to see Davenport, and proposed to bis
wi e a short time ago that they take their
children and make a tour which should
include visits to Davenport and St. Paul,
and on their return stop with friends in
different parts of Kansas. Sbe replied
that it would not be possible for all of
them to go; and so he, with her consent,
took enough money to see him through
the trip and started out alone. But be
liked Davenport so well that be never
got past it. He started on a spree here
that lasted until delirium tremens ended
Krafts is rational now and says that
this is his last spree. He remember bis
fall In the county jail across the river,
where he toppled over a railing and drop
ped to a stone pavement several feet be
low, and says it didn't hurt hlov. he felt
as if he was Hying. He is suffering at
present mostly from the exposure of the
night spent across tbe river with scarcely
any clothing upon his body. This ex
perience is also distinctly impressed on
bis mind, and he says that be would see a
house in front of him continually, but
when he approached and attempted to
enter tbe house would disappear. Had
be not been discovered and taken care of
on the following morning he would not
now be enjoying those reminiscences.
Mr. George leaves with Krafts this eve
ning for Kansas City.

The Peoria TranttoHpt of yesterday
morning contains the following account
of the shocking death by bis own hand
of W. J. Schreoder, formerly of this city:
At 5 o'clock yesterday evening William
J. Schroeder, a driver for the United
States Express Company, drove no In
front of the company's barn at 217 North
Washington street end asked J. A. Mc
Farlaod, who is ia charge of the stables,
to look after bis horse a moment. He
sprang from the wagon and ran through
the bsrn to a little stable in the rear of
tie lot. A moment later McFarlaod
heard a pistol shot, and as Schroeder did
not return he want to see what be was
doing. As he entered the stable he found
the young man lying face upward oa a
pile of stiaw, with a ballet hole in his
forehead from which the brains were
slowly oozing. A smoking pistol by his
side told tbe story of bis death.
Tbe police and coroner were notified t
once and soon arrived. Drs. Steele and
McFadden were called and tbey pro
nounced life extinct. Tbe body was
searched and a variety of articles found
in bis pockets. He bad been oat col
lecting for the company and $11 61 in
cash was found distributed in three pork
ets. A jury was at once sworn and di
rected to report at the court house at 8
o'clock in the evening to hold an inquest.
The body was removed to tbe morgue
and prepared for burial.
At the inquest tbe following facts were
developed: Young Schroeder came here
from Rock Island, where his parents live,
about six or eight months ago. He was
badly ia debt in Rock Island, and when
he entered the employ of the express
company be agreed to have $30 of
his wages held back .ach month to
apply on his debts. He boarded and
lodged at Ira Dubois' house, on Fulton
street, snd was three months in arrears on
board. He told Mrs Dubois that he would
collect all of his wsges for the month of
December and pay ber claim and a few
other billa be owed here. Oa Sunday his
brother came over from Rock Islsn 1 and
visited with him, returning yesterday
morning. Schroeder went to dinner a
usual yesterday and afur dinner went up
to bis room and made up bis laundry and
marked it to be done Thur day. So he
bad no intention ot committing suicide
at 12 o'clock yesterday. He collected
about $17 for the company. Of this sum
$11.71 was found on his person and this
together with a receipted bill for $5. ac
counts for the money. It Is thought bis
ucon worriea mm until be deliberately
took bis own life. It we an exceedingly
foolish action for he was well liked and
