Three wetks ago Henry Limburg, who
had been working as brakem&n on the
Rock Island & Peoria, guve up big posi
tion and went west to earn bis
own way in the world, believing that be
could better bis condition. He bad just
entered man's eMaie, anil while his father
objected to seeiDg him leave borne, he
told his son that be no longer bad any
control over him, that he had become a
man now and if he chose looking out for
himself he could cot stop him.
So the boy went. He visited a nums
her of southern cities and finally struck a
position on one of the roids running out
of Little Rock, Ark. Saturday night
completed his first week, and it ended
his life, too. At Argentu, a few miles
from Little Rock, he watt mn over and
killed while in the performance of his
duties. Such is the subhtance of a dis
patch which came to C. C. Limburg yes
terday. It merely anncunced tht his
son had been killed at Argento, but gave

A Boy Injured.
Tberwald Siegfried, a boy 9 years old,
who had been to Maline, jumped off a
trailer attached to an electric car on the
blup line at Twenty-fou-th and Molina
avenue yesterday afternc on, and fell in
such a manner that the front wheel of
the trailer passed over his left hand. He
was carried to the Four h avenue drug
store and then to Ir. 1jdewig's cflice,
where '.his hand was dm led and he was
taken to his home in Davenport. This
morning Dr. Ludewig made a closer ex
amination cf the wound which yesterday
he had treated antiseptic illy, and which
proved to be merely badly bruised and
swollen, and not fractured or "severely
lacerated, and no serious re
sults are apprehended The accident
was due to the boy's c&rtlessness. The
motor car was 43 and tae trailer S of
the old open bridge .ine CBrs. Hans
Nelson was in charge of the mptor and
Ed. Roche was conductor. On B"p-
proaching Twenty-fourth street the boy,
Siegfried had given a Signal to the con
ductor to stop, and the motorman-had
already shut off the current and
was tih'euing the brake of his
car while Riche was him?elf twisting the
brake of the trailer. But a few feet
before reaching Twenty fourth Siegfried
jumpjd off. He had a laekct on his arm
containing fruit and flowers, and a? te
jumped from the front platform of the
trailer he as thrown forward and the
front wheel went over his bard. The

About 9:30 o'clock Saturday evening,
Alfred Cahill reported at the police sta
tion that about 2:30 that afternoon a

he in company wiih a river man from
Le Claire, whose name ho does not know,
started to visit some cimpers on the
island below the city. They were in a
canoe and as the s'.ransir was under the
iLfluenci of liquor the beat was capsized
when opposite the foct of Eleventh
street and the stranger was drowned.
Cahiil states that he tr ed to save the
mun but could not, Cat ill himself float
ing down the river with the overturned
canoe until he was picked up by Robert
Meyers and Gus Kling who brought him
ashore. The police claim they have in
vestigated the story thnughly and say
there is nothing in it.
DEATH OF A 'RECLUSE.

A'bout 10 o'clock last Light a lone cor
netiet made his appearance in Spencer
square and proceeded at once to the band
stand, where be optntd up a Sunday
night concert, and rent the mantle of
night with discordant strtins of bygone
days, after which he dragged poor "An

John Strabbe. a recluse who has lived
the life of a hermit the past 18 'or 19 years,
was found on thefioor t the house on
the old Wilson homesteaJ.'in Rural town
ship, in which he lived, in afl unconcious
condition on Saturday evening. He was
picaea up by neighbors and olaced udod
a bed and medical attendance summoned
but he continued to grow weaker and
died at 1 o'clock Sunday morning. It is
not known how long he had lain upon the
noor, and wben found a pan of asbes
was beside him which he bad evidently
been in the act of emptying when be fell.
His death is supposed to be the result of
old age as be was in the neighborhood of
(0 years of age. Todertaker finox. of
this city was immediately notified, and he,
together with Capt. Kroeger. a friend of
the deceased, took an inventory of the
house and about S1.200 in notes and cur
rency were found.
His brother, Louis Strabbe. residins
near Cedar Rapids, h&9 been notified and
is expected to arrive here this evening.
The remains were Drought to this city
and are now at Knox's undertaking
rooms, awaiting the arrival of the brother
of the deceased.
Vague rumors reached this city yes
terday that the old man had been foully
dealt with, but there seems to be no evi
dence to sub3taatiate such reports.
At t.at .
While some may be inclined to doubt,
it is nevertheless, a fact that as far as
the two street car lines to Moline are con
cerned, trvk laying is completed in this
city. Thus the work practically begun
three years ago is finished. The last
ot the new track on the red line from
Second avenue and Fifth around to
Fourth and west to the saw mill has been
put in and electric cars on the red line
now go clear through. A few cars ran
down to the end on the blue line yester
day, bu. .hL ciEGi be Jcte rcgu'uriy, it
is thought, as it would give the motor
neer on this long run no time to look
over their motors at the lower end.
However, bv speeding up a little on the
road it may be possible to alternate the
blue cars with the red in running clear
down to the lower end.
The syndicate has only to relay the
E'.m street line west of Elm and to Nine
teenth and Third, and the bridge line
from Fifteentn to Nineteenth, when it
will have new track everywhere in Rock
Island. It is to be hoped the council
will tonight grant the changes prayed for
on the Elm street line on Nineteenth and
Sixth avenue, to the end that the new
track may be ordered for this line and the
improvements made at once. The peo
ple want the electric cars back on the
Elm street line, and the company desires
to put them back as soon as the council
is willing that the track should be prop

Deafnen Can't b Gored
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diteased portion of the ear.
Tb"r- i or'y one way to cure deafness,
and that ia by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflimed condi
tion of the mucous lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely clossd
deafness is the re?ui:, and unless th3 im
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of 10 are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condN
tion of the mucous surface.
We will give $100 for any case of
deafness (cau?ed by catarrh) that we can
not cure by taking Hall's Catarrh cure.
