MR. HUESING'S ILLNESS.
Caused tjy Taking a Dose of Bella
donna by Mistake..
He Xnrrowly Em-apes Death in t onne,
qarnre-His Condition at
August Huesing, of this city, mention
of whose illness in Chicago has been
made in The Argcs, was, it develops,
very much nearer death's door than any
one had any idea of. As has been stated,
Mr. Huesing went to Chicago to have an
eye operated upon. lie was stopping at
the Brevoort hotel while undergoing
treatment and today's Chicago Herald
tells of how near he came to making a
fatal mistake while suffering from the
effects of his ailment:
Half blind and groping about in the
darkness of his room at the Brevoort
house early Thursday mornins, A. Hues
ing seized the wrong bottle of medicine
and poisoned himself. He came from
Rock Island to Chicago last Monday to
have a serious affection of the eyes
treated by physicians in this city. Wed
nesday he procured some belladonna for
external application and a tonic to bs
taken internally. Mr. Huesing awoke
about 7 o'clock Thursday morning feel
ing pain in his eyes. Getting out of bed,
he groped his way toward the two bottles
containing medicine- He grasped the
bottle containing the belladonna and
placed it to nis lips. He noticed the pe
culiar taste of the liquid and checked
himself before he had swallowed more
than a teaspoonful. Mr. Huesing knew
he had swallowed the poisonous lotion
and he crawled out of his room and
groped along the corridor to the staircase.
When he reached the hotel desk he told
the clerk he bad swallowed some poison
by mistake. The house physician rushed
to his aid. Huesing was taken back to
his room, where he became unconscious.
From that time until 5 o'clock in the
evening he lay in a comatose condition,
the physicians despairing of his life. He
recovered consciousness, however, and
yesterday afternoon was on a fair way to
Mrs. Huesing, accompanied by Messrs.
H. Detjens and Paul (J. Kersch,
have returned from Chicago and they
confirm the above report of Mr. Hues-
ing's narrow escape, and state that he
will protably have recovered sufficient! v
to reach home next Tuesday. Albert
Huesing will remain with his father until
A dispatch has since been received by
Mrs. Hcesine frcm her son, however,
summoning her again to Chicago, though
stating no reason, and she left on the
noon train. It is feared Mr. Huesing
may have suffered a relapse.
Zoe ayton'a Peat.
Zoe Gayton, the actress who passed
through Rock Island three months ago on
her way to New York where she was maks
ing her way from San Franc'sco on foot
on a wager, has accomplished her under
taking. She reached New York yester
day afteraoon. Miss Giyton is an ac
tress whose real name is ZDreka Loptzera.
In Han Francisco last August she made a
wager through G. H. Church, that she
would wnlk to New York before April,
1S91. The stakes were $2,000 a side, the
expenses of the trip to be paid by the
loser, and the contract required that she
should follow the railroad tracks as far as
possible. Miss Gayton left Sin Fran
CIS20 at p. m. on Aucust 27 last.
Heavy snows were encountered in tne
Sierra and Rocky Mountains. Two bliz
zards were contended with and for four
weeks she walked in the rain . She wore
out five pairs of shoes, sprained her ankle
in October, and one day walked only
three miles. The longest distance cov
ered in a flay was forty miles, made in
II ax Pennoek Failed ?
It looks as if Pennoek, the Peoria elecs
trician who promised such wonders and
revelations, might have disappeared af
ter all. Read from the Journal:
Where is the beloved Pennoek with
bis rapid motor and his new wav to make
electric light? We took a great deal of
stock in Pennoek at the time but we are
now afraid that he has gone to join the
the pood Doctor Flower. Friend after
friend departs, who has not lost a friend?
We had hoped that Pennoek would ee
tablisb a system of such magnitude that
we could erect a statue to him here in
Peoria like Liberty enlightening the
world " We had great hopes in Pen
nock and we looked upon him
as an . universal genius, aole
to fill two zinc thimbles with
nitric acid and evolve electricity enough
to pull a street car and we shall not give
him up a moment. No, we are going to
stand by him. We are also going to stand
by Dr. Flower. The doctor may be
slightly disfigured but we are confident
that be is still in the ring. Mosher, his
private secretary, tell us so and we shall
believe everything that Mosher tells os.
Both of these men. Pennoek and Flower,
will be great benefactors to Peoria if we
will only give time time. While they are
getting ready the rest of us can take our
bait and go fishing.
A Kateh Arranged.
Billy Gibson, the local pugilist, has re
turned from Dubuque, where he suc
ceeded in arranging with Messrs. Morgan
and Shea, of that city, backers of Ed
King, of East Dubuque, for a sparring
match of 2G rounds with "Edward
Smith, ot Davenport." atJDurham & Wal
lace's opera house, Dubuque, next Tues
day evening. The winner to have $150

to be a lively one, but the prospects are
that Mr. King will cease to be known af

The Hllent Hide Leetare atlthe Tern
peranee Ueeiinc the;ottier Sight.
Moline is bound to gain a reputation
in one way if not in another. Not satis
fied with th 3 novelty of a fight to a finish
prize contest in her Y. M. C. A. building
recently, tb it city has now indulged in
the unique feature of a scene from the
real life of i.n inebriate at a temperance
meeting. The Argus of last evening
spoke of the sensation at Thursday
night's tf mjterance meeting ia that cky
but the Dispatch gives a more detailed
account of it:
The interesting feature at the prohi
bition meeting at Knowles' hall last eve
ning was a novelty in the way of a di
version, or more properly a disturbance.
Shortly afttr 9 o'clock, as Mr. Wolfen
barger was reaching his "lastly." a clau
ter of feet was beard on the stairways
outside, the door was thrown open, and a
man literally fell into the hall, as it he
were afraid he would not be in time to
play the " frightful example" act, which
he proceeded to perform in creat shape.
He was recognized as an employe of the
pipe organ works, and a number of
his friends vere surprised to see his ao
tions. As he proceeded down the west
aisle, he pulled off his heavy coat, expos
ing his shirt sleeves. Arriving directly in
front of the speaker, he cast his coat
down, tben 6at down and pulled ell his
shoes, after wtizh he flung his cap against
the platform, and laid down in front of
the stage as if to take a nap. Mr. Wol
fenbarger edvised the people to pay no
attention to the fellow, and told the in
truder to keep quiet or he would call the
police. Neverineles8 the speaker had a
hard time in diverting the attention of bis
audience frcm the vieitor while he could
finish the little story be was telling.
When it came to taking up the collec
tion, the fellow arose and planked down
a quarter for the good of the cause. The
speaker finally took the intruder in hand,
and it was itstonishing to see the alert
ness with wtich every command given was
obeyed it was as if the intoxicated man
was hypnotizf-d, and perfectly under con
trol of Mr. Wolfenbarger. He told him
to put on his shoes. He sat down aad
put one on, :hen started out. "Put on
that other shoe!'' He turned quickly back
and obeyed, then started out once more.
"Put on your coat ! ' came the order, and
on went the cont. Once more he started
out, but wt.8 haled and commanded to
putonhiscip, which he did with like
promptness and left the hall.
Hon.L. B. Wadleigh is president of
the Clinton Lumber company and one of
the best known saw-mill men on the
river. He holds the opinion that Fred
Weyerbauser will succeed in demons'"at
ing before be gets done with manufac
turing lumlier up the river that Little
Falls is as g' )od a t-Uce to manufacture
lumber as Minneapolis. "I believe he
will make it lively for the Minneapoli s
men," said Mr. Wadieiph, "iust as the
Minneapolis men continue to make it
lively for the middle Mississippi
manufactures." Aneist Mr. Weyer
hauser's purchase of the, Northern
Pacific pine it U staled that he pays for
the white pine and pays absolutely
nothing for the Norway. As the timber
runs about 60 percent to Norway, if the
purchase was made upon the terms sta
ted, it cn fc3 readily imigined that Mr.
Weyerbauser has got one of the cood
things that he i9 given ti githering in.
and will bet-ble to offer Norway lumber
at least, at a low price when be gets to
making it at Little Pal's

That F.xpree4by Oar People Over
the Mlftrrable l'oadtila or Htreat
and Walk p.
It is with a spirit of righteous indig
nation that our people are viewing the
present condition of the streets and side
walks of Rock Island, anl the spirit of
condemnation manifested on every side of
the present municipal administration that
such a condition should txist, is truly
well founded. Rock Island's sidewalks
at this time are a disgrace to the city. It
is doubtful if the city ever experienced
the time before when the condition of its
walks was so miserable and the author
ities so censurable that they should be so.
Outside the business localities, it is as
much as one can do to get along the
streets at all without wading through
mud ankle deep, while the streets of the
paved portions, wbere there is absolutely
no excuse at all for their being
so are absolutely disgraceful. Of course
where there has been, no permanent im
provement, it is not surpiising that the
streets should be bad at this time of the
year, but where the property holders have
put down expensive pavement and are
taxed to pay a street superintendent, they
have a right to expect that things should
be otherwise than they are found lobe.
As for the walks, no excuse whatever
can be offered for their present deplorable
condition. They' have simply been ne
glected by a mayor who brags of the public-spirited,
progressive tendency of his
administration of public affairs.

This is a good year for dur-ks. A gen
tleman who lives over near Versailles nt
not far from the Illinois river, said that
tne luRes a short distance from the stream
were so tnickly covered with ducks that
the water was hidden from view. Thev
have not been so plentiful for a long time
and the people of that neighborhood
actually neglect their work e?ery day to
go duck hunting. There are a good many
of them in this part of the aomla. tnn
Hunters arc usuallv lnr-kv A nnmtwr ..f
geese and evta 6wan are being found.
An explanation of the greater numbe
of ducks seen in this locality this year as
compared with a number of years past i
to be found in a very simple fact, re
marks the Burlington Gazette. For sev
eral years the Mississippi has been low
while the Missiuri has been high, in con
sequence of which the ducks in migrat
ing to their northern breeding ground
followed the stream which offeied them
the best breeding grounds and chose the
Missouri. This year the conditions are
