Death of Mrs. W.H. Pollard Early
i This Morning.
Delia Head. Daughter or Presidinz
Klilor Head. I'a-Neit Away The
Mrs. W. H.. Pollard died at her home
on Eighth avenue near the head of Eigh
teenth street at 1:10 this ororniDg, after
an illness which begun with the erip last
fall, hut which culminated in a dropsical
affection. She had resided in Rock Island
two years, and was the mother of Conduc
tor A.H.Pollard and Brakemen W.R. and
a L. Pollard, of the C..B. & Q . her other
sons being E. I., of LCrosse. and J. N,

DEATn OF A SWEET CHILD.
Delia, the youngest daughter of Pre
siding Elder and Mrs. M. A. Head, whose
life and her sister's have been dispaired
of for several days, died at her parents'
home, 1133 Fourth avenue last evening at
5 o'clock of malignant diphtheria, seed
10 years, seven months and eight days.
Loving hearts and willing hands had done
all that could be done for toe little suf
ferer, but to no avail. She wa9 yery pa
tient throughout her suffering, and was
greatly pleased with a bouquet of flowers
sent by her teachers and schoolmates in
the new Third ward school building, and
desired that her grateful appreciation be
made known to them. Her last moments
were spent in 6ingiog her favorite hymns,
she apparently knowing that the end was
near, and she assured the sorrowing ones
about her bed that she "was going home,"
and going to see "grandma" and "Aunt
Delia" and "Maudie," the latter a cousin
who had died a few days tgo. Just be
fore she passed away she asked her mother
to kiss her good-bye. It was a most
affecting death, yet sweet in the purity,
love and faith of the little sufferer. The
funeral occurred from the late home at
9 3t this morning and was private. The
services were conducted by Rev. George
W. Gue, pastor of the First M. E. church,
and the interment was made in Riverside

The case of Carlin vs. the city of Rock
Island was taken up in the circuit court
yesterday afternoon and still occupies the
attention of the court. The case was
tried once before in the circuit court and
the plaint ft received damages, but the
verdict was set aside. and the case is now
being tried again. E. M. Sharon, of Dav
enport, and William McEairy, of this
city, represent the plaintiff, and City At

for the defense.

This Korntnz'a Fire.
The fire alarm turned in from the b.v-
nth ward at 10:30 o clock this morning
was caused from a gasoline stove in the
rear of Schwecke & Luchman'a saloon.
2039 Moline avenue. The man who de
livers gasoline attempted to fill the reser
voir while the stove was in use and in so
doing ran it over at the top and the fltme
below ignited the gasoline, and the blaz
shot up townid the ceiling. The man
became frightened and ran out, at the
same time upsetting a can of gasoline
which he had with him which also took
fire and tilled the back part of the rooms
with flames. An alarm was turned in,
but before any hose companies arrived
the flames had been extinguished with
some quilts and no water was thrown
The damage to the room, which had just
been papered and painted, will be lees
than a $100. and is fully insured in

light Conductor Crrel'a flurk.
A bold attempt was made to rob train
No. 1 on the Rock Island & St. Louis
division of the C, B. & Q. road in broad
daylight at the station at Monmouth yes
terday afternoon. The train reaches
Monmouth at 4:15 and remains there 15
minutes. Conductor O. H. Creel was in
charge and as usual when the train reached
Monmouth he went into the oepot to
hand in bis report and receive any orders
that might be awaiting him. He had no
sooner left the train than four tough look
ing characters who had been lounging
around the depot, having been ordered to
leave town, . boarded the train. They
commenced in the smoking car and went
through begging of all the passengers.
Finding they were not succeeding they
resorted to more desperate means,
and began seizing everything in
sight. One grabbed a valise while pass
ing through the second car and another
who had gotten into the sleeper snatched
an overcoat, the property of Harry McAl
pin, the porter, while still another
snatched the pocket book of a lady who
was leaving the sleeping car. An alarm
had been tiven bj this time and a report
flew that the train had been robbed. Con
ductor Creel emerged from the depot just
as the fellow with the overcoat was mak
ing across the platform, and not stop
ping to argue with him at any consider
able length, struck him full in the face
and knocked him down. The scoundrel
promptly arose aod went at the conduc
tor who again rushed at him and the
crowd which was gathering about, was
moved back by a policeman with the
"Stand buck folks, and let them fight
But the officers advice was not accepts
ed in detail, and while the crowd broke
away, some of the citizans, boiling with
indignation, seized the thief while others
ran two of the othen and recoverd the
stolen oyercont and pocket book, but
the fourth escaped and bad not been run
down when the train pulled out.
Conductor Creel has a dislocated fi"-.-ger-joint
this morning and a good deal to
say about Monmouth's police system.
The officer v?ho was on duty at the depot
together with the three toughs captured
should receive a dose of something they
will be apt to remember for a time.
The Homely bnt l aeful ilrl
The "useful" girl, writes Ella Wheeler

not noticeable in any way. Everybody
makes use of her. She has no enemies
and no lovers. Women like her very
much, and men speak highly of her when
she is brought to their attention in some
way; but they never think about her
voluntarily. They appreciate her highly
when she helps them out cf a corner, and
thank her cordially, and then furiet her
until they need her again, bae is not
apt to marry, for men do not care for use
ful girls before muriage. She can sew.
