Tbe funeral of little Istac Waldo Ne
gua. son of Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Neu8
an account of whose tragic death from
being run over by an electric car ap
peared in 8aturday .evtning's Aegcb.
occurred from the Rrief stricken home,
1301 Second avenue, at 2 o'clock this
afternoon. Bev. J. H. Kerr conducted
tha services, assisted by Iiev.H. C. Mar
shall. Mr. Kerr delivered a few remarks
of tender sjmpathyand condolence to the
bereaved parents, and the choir of the
Central church. Misses H ley and Foleom
and Messrs. H. D. Jolscm and W. H.
PhUIeo, sang sweeUy a number of beauti
ful anthems. There were a number of
lovely floral emblems. The pall bearers,
allfiiendsof the deceased, were Eddie
Gest. 6idney Loeb, Stjlef Copp and Ed
In deference to the wishes of the
t filleted parents no coronet's inquest
was held. The unfortunate boy died
from the shock and befcre a thorough
examination could be made. After
death it was revealed that there were a
number of injuries suffici-.-nt to produce
fatal results . Not only was the right
arm ground to a pulp from the shoulder
down, but there were fiactures of the
tkull and also the pelvis, while the ab
dominal contents were torn and lacerated.
Death to ODe so tfllicted can be regarded
only &s a blessed release.
1 here are many cot, flic tins; theories as
to how the liule feilow met his terrible
late. Ltpt.J. M. M -ntgomery, who
was passing along the avenue when tbe
accident occurred, and assisted H. D.
Folsom in carrying the tufferer into Ellis'
coal fire, disrees with tbe stitement
of the plaj mates of little Waldo that he
was hanging to tie back of
a wagon passing down tbe
avenue and fell or jsmi ed just as tbe
car cime up that ran over nine. Capt.
M jntgomery sys there was no wagon in
sight going down Secot d avenue when
he first sw the boy after the car had
passed over him. A minute before he
had seen him run from the sidewalk
where the other children were playing,
and he thinks he atttmpted to catch on
to the ccr, or the one filing down, and
was thus thrown under the wheels.
Mrs. Mary Howard who boards with
Mrs. T. U. Ellis, at 1321 Second avenue,
was sitting in the front, parlor of the
house, directly in fron-. of which the
tragedy occurred, talking to Mrs. Ellis
and looked out of the window iust as the
car pissed over the boy. "The first I
faw," said Mrs. Howard, this morning,
"thn bfk wheels of the csr were going
over the poor boy's body. I neyer shall
forget the sight as long as I live. The
boy bad bec-n st the window but a few
minutes before speaking to me and we
had been commenting on his bright
looks. The next I saw he was under the
wheels. JIow he got there I don't know;
whether he fell from, another car or a
wagon I cinnol tell. Ail I saw was the
boy and tbe csr running over bim, au.l it
looked as if he had fallen out of tbe bot
tom of the cr and down between tbe
front arid the back wheels."
Some have advanced the belief that
tbe boy fell from the down-going car
and under the front wheels of the car
which ran over tim, while tbe theory
which is most generally i.enepted is that
wbich tbe story of th? little fellow's
playmates sustains, that be either fell from
a wagon go:ng down Second avenue or
jumped from it and lost his balance and
was thrown under the car. This yersion
is partihlly sustained by the fact that after
tse occurrence a young nan called at Mr.
Xi-gus' house and state d that he was
driving the wagon from which the boy
fell and offered to do all he could for
him. From the statement of the com
panions of tbe boy, the assertion of
Mo'erman Walsh that he did not see any
children 6n tbe paveme nt until the ac
cident bad occurred the others having
stated that they were on the walk and
what Mrs. Howard saw, the best conclu-.
eion that can be arrived at is that the boy
fell between tbe trucks of the car and
only the back wheels parsed over bim.

C. A. Smith, the Chicago driver of
Dick C. who was worsted at the start of
the big pace Friday afternoon, was still
in his bed at the Kimball house yester
day. He says he has been hurt a great
deal worse before, and insists on making
light of bis ir juries, but be is not in con
dition, or was not incocdition yesterday,
to 'go .home. It is probable that Mr.
Smith's facial beauty would have suffered
very severely if it had not been for his
presence of mind. He had it with him
that afternoon, and he used it to good
effect. As soon as he f(,und that be was

his bands on the groui.d, bore enough
of his weight on them to lift bis face

gloves were worn to shreds, and his
clothing was badly frayed where it bad

saved his features. He will be all right

prospects of a dry paper were just about
disappearing as I thought how interest

Dfoen Can't b Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the dioeaed portion of the ear.
There is only ooe way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed condi
tion of tbe mucous liaing of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tune gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
bearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is tbe result, and unless th3 im
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
bearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out cf 10 are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an infUmed condit
tion of tbe mucous surface.
We will give $100 for any case of
deafness (caused by catarib) that we can
not cure by taking Hall's Catarrh cure.

The Head clerk of the Order Honored
In the IatltuMn of Camp 1350
Saturday Sight The offl
Rock Island now has three flourishing
camps of the order of Modern Woodmen
of America, and the last instituted Satur
day night gives promise of being first, not
only among tbe local camps but indica
tions point very strongly to its becoming
the star of the order in general . The
local interest in the great beneficiary
society which has been growing outside
oi us rants since kocr is and was
honored in the election of Maj. C. W.
Hawes as head clerk of the order, culmi
nated Saturday evening in the formation
of C. W. Hawes camp, 1550.
Head Clerk Hawes who instituted the
camp was honored too, not only in tbe
adoption of the name which was a pleas
ant surprise to him, but in the list of
members which was a compli
ment to him, numerically speak
ing as well as in charaCer. Ninety four
of Rock Island's representative citiziDS,
business, professional men and labor,
iag people were inducted into the mt
teries of the older and familiar zid wi li
its working socially and beneficially, wh e
a number of others who had been accep--ed
as charter members, but who wera
unable to be present, will be initiated at
a future date.
A ... .
a.i:er tne new camp nad been institu
ted by Maj. Hawes and members adopt
ed, during which a team from Moline
exemplified the fljor work in tbe most
approved and thoroughly skilled an 1 im
pressive manner, the election of cffliers
occurred with the appended result:
Consul B. Frank Kncx
Advisor P. Greenawalt.
Clerk - J. Frank Munger.

f'hys'cian Dr. G. G. Craig.

Managers For three years.George R.
House!; f r two years, Cnaries Biadel;
for one year, T. H. Thom.is.
Then came the selec'.ion of a name, and
that of tbe popular head clerk was no
sooner suggested than it was adopted
with spontaneous unanimity, and hence.
forth tbe new organization will be known
as ' C. W. Hawes Camp. No. 1550."
Maj Hawes had selected a very pretty
seal tor his namesake, it was ordered
this mornia?, and everything is now in
kuuu worsing snape. The new camp

is s i months old if it continues to grow
as it has started out, and it will contain
only the best timber of the forest at that
