A. Maliaie Wonia Urta SO Day for
JRefaslBK to fay a Pine for Assao.lt
Mrs. Joseph Stafford, of Moline, was
arrested the other evening by Officer
Starofsky on a warrant issued by Justice
Blapeson complaint of E. Struck, charg
iiig Mrs. Stafford with an aseault and bat
iiry upon Mrs. Struck. The origin of
tie difficulty was the loss of a dog be
longing to Mr. and Mrs. Struck and the
finding of an animal that they believed
t be theirs in the possession of and
and claimed by Mrs. 'Stafford. When
Uken before the justice, Mrs. Stafford
became quite profane and roundly abused
e reryone in any way connected with the
cse. Finally Justice Mapes imposed a
fine of $40 and costs but offered to sus
pend the remainder if she would pay 3
aid the costs, This Mrs. Stafford re
fused, saying that she would prefer to
remain in jail for seven years. Accord-
it gly she was committed to the city jail.
As she left the justice's office in the
custody of the officer Mrs. Stafford hit
Bl r. Struck in the face, the blow causing
tl e blood to flow from a cut on his lip.
While on her way to the j til she created
q lite a scene by her loud talk and dis
orderly conduct. Ueless otherwise re
leased Mrs. Stafford will have to remain
in jail between 80 and 85 days to dis
ci arse her fine of f 40 and costs.
ENTRIKIN' AX EASY MARK.

meetings at Turner hall here last Satur
day nigbt, is now holding forth in Mo
lite, and as was the case here Is having
considerable fua. Ex-States Attorney
Entrikin has been introduced into some
of the follies Prof. Parker is able to in
duce his subjects to perform, and here is
hew it is told in the Dispatch:
One of the funny incidents of Prof.
Ptrker's mesmeric exhibition at Knowlts"
hall last evening very nearly cost W. J.
Entrikin his shoes. A young lady who
had been mesmerized by the professor,
wt.8 told that that heavy set man down
there had her shoes on. She left the
suge, and found Entrikin, raised up one
of his feet, and began striving to get bis
shie off. under the impression that his
da.nty footwear was her own. Bat the
shoes were so small and the feet filled
tb m so well that she couldn't get them
off. Then she was told to get a police
men and have him arrested. She searched
the audience, but failing to find an of
ficer, she tried to "get a man of his size"
to tackle Entrikin . The man selected re-
fuied to act, and Prof. Parker told her
to arrest herself. She thereupon yanked
hira out of his seat, aud led him to the
footlights in triumph, as much to the
amusement of W. J. as of anyone. The
young lady was so completely mesmerized
that she would probably not believe the
story ol her actions herself.
fronny. mat It?
One of the Jnost singular circumstances
connected with this queer human life of
ouis was related to tne writer a few days
ago by a Rock Island lad v. The Rock
Island lady who related the story has a
nie:e. The young lady met a Gentleman
fro ii Geneseo, and a mutual attachment
sprang up. The Geneseo gentleman paid
tne young lady the most devoted atten
tion for more than a 5 ear. They became
enr. aged to be married. He gave her
lare numbers of costly presents, princi
pally jewelry. The lady who related the
narrative 10 tne writer nere touched a
cosily pin at her throat and remarked
thai that was one of the gifts. The day
was set for the marriage. Everything
wan as harmonious as a summer day.
wbi;n suddenly, out of the clear sky of
that summer day of harmony, there peal
ed a thunder shock that fair
ly prostrated the expectant bride
It happened but a week before the cere
mony was to have taken place. Tne
thunder shock came in the shape of infor
ma' ion that the man had a wife and fatn-.
ily of grown-up children in Geneseo!
Tht re the man bad let the events leading
up to tne wedding run along to within a
week of the wedding, and then the true
state of affairs was discovered only by ac
cident, would be have actually married
her! And what move was he expecting
to make then? Or was he insane? It is
one of the most astounding stories that
we ever beard or Human folly and deceit.
1 at cities being only a few miles apart.
the wonder is that the revelation did not
con e sooner? How could it run for more
than a year, when so many in both cities
are so well acquainted witn both partiesT

A BRILLIANT AFFAIR.
The Retention at the Hass Slanaion

One of the most elaborate society
events of the season in Rock Island was
the reception given by Mr. and Mrs.
Fred II ass and the Misses Hass at their
handsome residence on Thirteenth street
from 7 to 11 o'clock last evening. The

sary of Mr. aud Mrs. Hass. A large
number of invitations had been sent out
which were responded to by over 200 of
the society people of the tri cities.
The interior of the p datial home was
elaborately decorated with a profusion
of beautiful flowers, and Scbillinger's full
orchestra, of Davenport, rendered de
lightful music for the occasion. The
spacious lawn surround'ng the house was
also gaily decorated with Chinese lan
terns, and all combined to make it one of
the most notable events of its kind. The
catering was done by Krell & Math, with
an able corps of assistants, kindly fur
nished by Mr. and Mrs. Montrose of the
Harper. The meats were prepared by
Anna Schroeder who has been with Mr.
Hass'family for many years.
Mr- and Mrs. Hass and daughters were
assisted in receiving and entertaining

Railway Torters In England.
Xow, are railway porters a a body ol
men as well off as they would be in any
other occupation for which they are fit?
The answer must be "Yes." Four-fifths
of them have been farm laborers, laborers
about towns or men without a trade, and
in such capacities they would seldom rise
above the level of being able to keep body
and soul together, whereas directly they
join a railway they have regular wages and
prospects of promotion. What regular
wages mean only those know who have
had employment for a part of a year and
have had to make shift for the remainder.
Every porter must belong to a sick fund;
and if he is not a member of one at the
time be joins the service he must belong to
the one carried on by the company, so that
in times of sickness he still draws enough
money to keep himself. It is very neces
sary that this should be compulsory, fot
there are many men who are quite indif
ferent about sickness till it comes, and it
would not do for great companies to heat
that their servants were dying for the want
of attendance and the necessaries of life.
Motor for Driving Small Dynamos.
A very handy petroleum motor has made
its appearance, which has been applied
with much success to driving dynamos for
small private installations. It is made in
sizes from one half horse power (700 revo
lutions) up to five horse power (550 revolu
tions), the latter type being-with four
cylinders. The fuel consumption is low,
one pint of petroleum per horse power.
The large type has the great advantage of
going into a small spare of 2 feet 6 inches
by 1 foot, and 3 feet high. Xew York Com
How Feathers in His Cap Originated.
The Hungarians, during several cent
uries, were in almost constant warfare
with the Turks, and a custom arose of a
warrior decorating his cap with oue feather
for every Turk he killed. Xo one was al
lowed to wear a feather until he had slain
a Turk in fair fight, and the greater the
number of feathers the greater the prowess.
The expression came to England late in
the Sixteenth century, and is found in
many authors subsequent to that time.
