Frightful Predicament of a Laborer
at Hober's Brewery.
His Leg Mangled In the Machinery
and Haeh. line Keeessarlly
P atea Before he l Extricate
Otto Geppert a laborer at Huber's
brewery met with a shocking and peculiar
accident this morning. For the purpose
of cleaning it he had entered an immense
tank used for holding grain and fiom
which it is carried by means of a con
veyor to the mash tub. He had finished
bis task and was climbing out of the
tank when he lost his balance and fell
back, his foot being caught by the con
veyor and before he could recover him
self his entire right leg was horribly
ground and lacerated. As soon as poBsi
ble the machinery was stopped, but
it was impossible to extricate the
man from his frightful position, so tightly
was the leg held in the conveyor. Drs.
Plummer andBernhardi were summoned,
bat all efforts to release the suffering
man from his predicament were of no
avail until the conveyor was broken. A
plumber was sent for and two hours
passed before the cruel machinery was
forced to let go its iron grip. In the
meantime the poor man had given way
to agonizing scream; for help and release
from pain, but willing as were those
about him to do for him, it was impossi
ble to aid him until the machinery could
be taken apart, and some of it smashed
in the hurried efforts to relieve the man
of his misery.
Drs. Plummer and Bernhardt found it
ntcessary to amputate the right
limb, about midway between the
knee and thigh, and it is difficult at. this
time to determine whether the man will
recover from the shock or to:.

Kad Coasting Aeetdenr.
Johnny Pratt, a 6 year-old boy was in
stantly killed by collision with a street
car while coasting in Davenport yester
day afternoon. The Democrat thus de
scribes the terrible affair:
The boy was in attendance in the first
primary room at school Nd. 1 as usual
yesterday afternoon, and went home at
half-past 3, tie time at which the
smaller children are dismissed from
school. Securing his eled, he and his
little sister Amy started for the Mississippi
avenue hill in anticipation of a good time.
Where Mississippi avenue joins Second
avenue it has but one side walk on the
west side of the street, and it was upon
this that the children were soon sliding.
A stone wall conceals Second avenue
from view at this point, and it
was ju-t about half past 4
that car No. 3 of the Third street line
came along from the west upon that
street as Johnny came sliding from the
north on the walk referred to. Driver
Chris Lagoci saw the boy when he was
within about six feet of the car and in
stantly screwed down his brake and stop
ped the car with a jerk. But it was too
late. The sled had shot in between the"
horses and the car, end the boy's head
was crushed by the forward wheels. The
wheels did not pass over the body, else
it would have been sev?red in two, but it
is believed that as they became
locked by the brake pressure
the boy's head become wedged between
the wheel and rail and the. for
ward motion of the car carried it along
sufficiently far to crush the child's head.
He was dead when he was taken from
beneath the car, and tender hands con
veyed him to his home near by. His
mother was a; the door when he was
taken into the yard, and the fearful fact
of her son's death broke upon her with
terrible suddenness. As was only nat
ural, she was nearly frantic for a time.
Dr. Cantwell and Coroner McCortney
were summoned and they examined the
boy's injuries. His lower jaw was found
to be crushed and fractured in several
places, bis upper jaw was fractured on
the left side and two of his ribs were

THE DISTRICT SCHOOL.
The Convention of Teacher at Illl
noiN City Natarday The IMiteaft.
Illiscis City, Marcb 7. Today sev
eral of the teachers from the surrounding
townshits met at the school building in
this plac! pursuant to the adjournment of
the last convention.
The president, Mr. Wylie, being absent,
Mr. J. G. Britton, of Andalusia, was
called to the chair. After thanking the
teachers for the honor conferred upon
him, he delivered an address on the ob
ject of these conventions, and the benefits
to be derived from them. His remarks
were cone ise, appropriate and full of in
terest to ill those interested in the future
welfare of our schools.
The first subject discussed was "How
to Interest Directors and Patrons in
School Work," led by L. A. Thomas.
Then followed How" to Teach Inter
mediate Geography," by Link Barton.
Some unfinished work on ''Grammar" was
presented by Mr. Britton and was ex
tremely itteresting. An informal dis
cussion of each subject as presented and
participated in by all present showed that
the teachers were alive to their work.
The convention adjourned to meet
here, May 2, at 10:30 a. ra., at which time
a large atttrjdance of teachers from the
surrounding school?, is expected, and
not only the teacher?, but all those more
directly interested in school work are in
vited to be present.
The teacaers take pleasure in meeting
the patrons of the schools at theBe con
ventions, and acquainting them with the
plans and methods of teaching; for we
realize that without the hearty co-open-tion
of the parents we cannot bring the
district school to that degree of excel
lence which we are so desirous of attain
The fact that Easter falls on a very
early date this year (March 29) has caused
a "friend of facts and figures" to collect
some curious statistics. In 1883 Easter
fell on Marc ii 25, and it will only once
again in thin century namely, in 1894, fall
on so early a date. In the three follow
ing centuries it will occur only eight times
on the same date namely, in 1951. 2035,
2046, 2057, 2103, 2114, 2125 and 2198.
The earliest date on which Easter can
fall is on March 22, and this only in case
the moon is lull on March, 21, when this
date happens to fall on Saturday. This
combination of circumstances is extreme
ly rare; it occurred in 1390, 1761 and
1817, and wil: happen again in 1990, 2076,
and 2144, wh le during three following
centuries it is not once 'on the books" at
this early dite. On the other hand,
Easter never 1 alls later than April 25;
this was the esse in 166G, 1734 and 1886,
and will only happen once in the next
century namtly. in 1943.
