The Woodnfn Organ.

bidders are in trouble. The postal
autborities refuse to let it go through the
mails as second class matter, and demand
$400 postage on each issue. As that ia
about the amount the publishers get out
f it, the profits will not admit of uuch ex

some way in getting his Echo through as
second-class matter, but the new publish

A FORCED FAST.
Abotiaeaee Frm Food aa Aeeoant
R. C. Willerton, chief clerk at the Har
per, has received intelligence of the pecu
liarly distressing illce aof 'j is sitter, Mrs.
William Foreman, at Bloomlngton. The
Leader, of that city, descritxs the case:
The many friends f Mrs William Fore
man are considerably alarmed over the
condition of that lady's hetd'h. Mrs.
Foreman is afflicted with a disease that
is lather strange in many particu
ar. In fact, the malady has so far
bhffid the skill of the pbysicians. Mrs.
Foreman has been ill for the past few
weeks and. it is said, has been unable to
take any nourishment for 21 days. Not
even milk will stay on her stomach.
A remarkable fast for a healthy perton is
thirty days. Dr. Tanner a few years ago
surprised the world by abstaining from
food for forty days and forty Lights.
Succi. the Italian, lately beat the record
made by the famous doctor and went hun
gry for forty-five days. Harris, the gen
tleman living at Newbern. 111., a little
place near Alton, is making a fast and
has now almost reached the limit made
by the others.
Thus it will be seen that Mrs. Foreman
was possessed of great vitality. Her
friends cf whom she has a great many,
prieve to see her so ill aDd sincerely hope
that she may recover. Last evening her
condition had not changed either for the
better or the worse.

Two Rock Island Charley's and one
Rirk L-land Tom, paid f 1 and costs
$6 20 into the coffers of Divenporl's

properly respect the prohibitory laws of
the Iowa city. The Rock Islanders do
not complain of the fines it is the costs
they object to.
Bert Smith, of Moline, was fined $3 and
costs by Magistrate Wivill this morning
for being drunk and disorderly. He hired
a livery rig at Kbit's stable and then al
lowed it to take care of itself, while he
proceeded to load up in a Second avenue
saloon. When an employe of the livery
stable went to enquire after the rig he
was abused by Smith and Marshal Miller
ran h'm in.
Officers Mulque?n and Glass arrested
a colored belle oi a Davenport street car

by agreement of County Attorney Heinz,

upon paying costs and half of the fine,
with thirty days to psy the remainder of
the fine. The firm had previously been

fiO fell from the top to the foot of a flight
of stairs yesterday and f;actured her left
limb above the ankle. Contusions and
painful bruises were received as might be
expected, but the most alarming injury
of all was the breaking of the limb. A
compound fracture of both the bones was
sustained, and they were shattered and
splintered in a horrible manner. The
sharp ends of the bony fragments were
driven through the tissue, penetrating to
the surface and making bad wounds.froin
which there was profuse bleeding. The
sufferings of the unfortunate woman were
very great, and as it was sometime before
a physician could be found t relieve her
she suffered considerably from nervous
