Jobn J. Mersn, residing with his pars
enls on Elm street, and employed as a
brakeman on the C. R. I. & p. gUg
tained, perhaps, fatal injuiies by falling
from the end ladder of a fright car over
which he had started to cl mb while the
train was running at a rapid rate near
Ottawa last evening. He was taken to
Ottawa, where the rounds were
dressed and later was bron jht to this city
where he was attended by Dr?,
Plummer and Bsrth, who found
the wheels .had passed over his
right shoulder, fracturing that joint and
the should r blade. He was also bruised
about the head and may bo injured inter
nally. He was verv weak when he
reached here and on this account the doc
tors have delayed an open lion.
He is in a very precarious condition
and little hopes am entertained by the
physicians for his recovery.

David Sears, one of the petitioners for
the Watch Tower road change, which
was refused by the South Rock Island
road commissioners, has, by his attor
neys, Jackson & Hurst, ttken an appeal
to three supervisors. Tie petition for
the appeal was filed this morning with
Justice Hawes, and he selected Supervis
ors Conrad Schneider. James Hasson and
W. T. Kerr to hear the appeal at the
Watch Tower pavilion Aagust 8 at 3

John W. Ryau, son of William Ry

of diphtheria, aged nearly 10 years. The
funeral occurred frcm his late home at

Michael Reinhard, an eld resident of
this city, dropped dead on the. street in
Buffalo, Iowa, yesterday evening. He had
been a resident of this city a great many,
years, a number of which he served on
the police force. He resiled here until
about two weeks ago when he went to
Buffalo to reside with a b -other who lives
there. He was 65 years of age and leaves
two sons, Frederick and Gustaf, aged
respectively, 16 and 13 yews.
The negro Moore, who was cut by his
companion, Smith, Tuesday night, is Btill
at Mercy hospital, and is getting along as
well as could be expected . The indica
tions now axe that he will recover. Word
was received from Monmouth yesterday
that a negro had been Uken from the
freight train which Smith was supposed
to have boarded, and was being held at
that place. Officer Connelly left for Mon
mouth in Hie afternoon to bring tbe man
heme if he proved to be the right party.
Last evening a telephone message from
Geneseo announced that a negro answer
ing Smith's description bi d been arrested
there, and Detective Jans in left for that
place. At 1 o'clock this morning Jansen
telephoned the welcome news that tbe
Geneseo captive was tie right man.

Tbe work of cleaning up .the' Missis
sippi between the falls and the St. Paul
boom is in progress.
Tbe Diamond Jo line has .' notified its
agents that after the present trip by the
St. Paul there will be but two packets a
week between St. Louis and St. Paul.
The boat to be dropped out of the trade
is not designated in the orders, bat it is
surmised to be tbe St. Paul, , The reduc
tion of running boats is stated . to be
caused by low water, and it is likely that
unless a better stage nf navigation comes
before the rush of passenger travel is over
the upper river will have bat two packets
a week during the remainder of the
season. Under tbe new order the two
boats will leave St. Louis respectively on
Mondays and Fridays, arriving here on
Wednesdays and Sundays.
The upper rapids of the Mississippi
are much more dangerous than tbe lower
ones, said a riverman this morning, in
generil conyersation about the big stream.
Tbe upper rapids are about IS miles long
and tbe only crooked channel is bounded
by chains of rocks that would totally
wreck any boat coming in contact with
them either a boat adrift or moving
with the wh;el. The fall of the ranida
is much greattr than of those below Keo
kuk, but the chitnl is quite deep, the
danger tT boats lying not in the bottom
so much as owing to the narrow
ness of the chanel and the jut
ting rocks on each side. It is entirely
impossible for the most skinful pilot to
pass thes rapids at night, unless with
tbe aid of a bright moon, and only tbe
most expert of ire rapids pilots will at
tempt the passage at night under any
circumstances. The most skillful pilot
now on the upper rapids is an old Dia
mot:d Jo wheelman, Capt. Hight, who is
stationed there especially to take the
Diamond Jo boats through. Capt.
Hight's opinion is never questioned, and
when be says the wind is too strong, or
the hour t?o late, a Diamond Jo boat
never starts over the rapids. Burlington
Mtrange Coincidence of 111 fate.
The fates seem to be particularly hard
on the Johnsons.of Rocklslaod and Mercer
counties of late. A day or two ago Jo
seph Johnson, of Reynolds, known to
almost everyone as "Joe Canadian," was
kicked in the back by a vicious horse,
and is understood to be in a precarious
condition. But this is not all word
now comes that James Johnson, of Pre-,
eruption, who is known by tbe sobriquet
of "James Yankee Johnson," was badly
bitten on the left arm by a vicious dog,
but fr.-im which no serious results are an

Sears .i Johnston are receiving large
quantities of rye of a superior quality
which speaks highly for the new crop.
The farmers ot this vicinity say it is a
pleasant opportunity to take care of
their large harvest. Dry and cool weath
er gave them a chance to save their crop
in first clasa manner.
The new cattle law not allowing stock
at large is having its effect here- Occa
sionally a stray cow is found tied up in a
yard, which is having a bad effect. Ask
some of the boys around town.
Many reports have reached us of what
probably may result in serious trouble
among cittlj. The disease seems to de
bilitate them so that they are not able to
move. Some have sore mouths with
swelled tongues. However it is hoped
that the ailment may be stopped before it
may Income an epidemic.
We are much pleased with the decison
of the county institute officers in dtciiiirg

ranged to accommodate a large crowd.

Deafness Can't bs Cored
by local applications, as tbey cannot
reach the' diceased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed condi
tion of the mucous lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tuoe gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
bearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless ths in
flammation can be taken out and tbi
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever; nil...
cases out of 10 are caused by catarr-,
which is nothing but an inflamed cond..
tion ot the mucous surface.
We will give $100 for any case of
deafness (caused by catanb) that we can
not cure by taking Hall's Catarrh cure.
