George Butler, a eiove mounter at the
Rock Ieland Stove works wag hit by the
flying fragment of a bursting emery
wheel, which he was using shortly before
noon today, and seriously injured. He
had only been working on the wheel a
fw moments when it broke, and al
though be was struck with terrible forca
he was not rendered unconscious.
Dr. Eyster as immediately sum
moned and found that be had sustained a
fracture of the tkull, besides an ugly
gash on the forehead, and was struck
over the stomach with perhaps internal
injury, audit is hrd to determine just
how serious bis iniuries will nit
While they ate not pronounced necessar
ily fatal, there is considerable apprehen
sion felt as to thiir outcome.
Mr. Butler was removed as soon as pos
ble to his home on Seventh avenue and
Eleventh street and made as comfortable
as possible. His escape may be regarded
as almost miraculous when it is consid
ered that he was struck in so many places
by the flying particles of the broken

It is not particularly to the credit of
Moliue and Rock Island. sys the Moline
Dispatch, tbat wh.le the Sixth regiment
took five of the 14 places of the state
rifle team, the two companies from these
cities did not get cne of the five. Tnere
is no good reason why this should be so.
Toese two companies contain as good
soots as any companies in the state.
Tbey have it in tht-m to take as many
places on the team as any other compan-,
ies in the state, an i but for one thing
ibey could easily do it.
The need is a rife range, suggests the
Bame paper. This must be a level piece
of ground from 60) to 1,000 yards long,
at the end of whica must be a bank or
bill, into which the bullets may sink. It
would seem to be easy enough to find
such a piece of ground, but up to this
time though there has been considerable
tearcb, it has not been discovered. A
more vigorous search will be prosecu
ted and it is hoped tbat the right place
may be found soon. When it is found,
tDe ptocle of the two cities should ad
vance wbat money is necessary to lease or
purchase the groun 1.
Tne adjutant geieral has promised to
fit np the ground, v- ten it is secured, with
the best outfit that can be had. and when
thus fitted up it would be a place of re
sort nut only for the two companies but
for all the riflemen of the two cities. The
companies from Geaeseo and Cambridge
could also use it, thus bringing the rifle
men from one-third the regiment to this
point. This is a mutter in which every
cit.z-n c f the two cities should take an in
terest , and we believe they will when the
matter is presented to them. We can
have tbe finest rifle-range in the state if
we will provide the ground. We ousht
to do it.
Over to An Air rattle.
A sort of air Castle scheme has been
concocted for crossing the Mississippi bet
tween Moline and Davenport and perhaps
between Rock Island and Davenport.
Tbe Dispatch describes it:
"Two gentlemen, one a resident of Mo
line, tbe other a forser resident, have a
s-cbea.e for rapid trai sit across the Missis
sippi, that puts any other plan ever pro
posed out of sight. Tbe details are not
perfected and the pi ins are not ready for
tbe public, but the (.eneral plan was told
to the Ditpatcb. It is to run a car on
wires on the general plan of a toboggan,
from towers m either side of the river,
and biuh enough to be above pas
Bin; steamers. The details are being
worked out and the p ans will be given to
our renders soon . Tbe plan has been on
a smaller scale in several places. Tbe
principle of running a car on wires is not
new, btine been use 1 in Germany years
ago in transporting firm products. Tbe
gentlemen tbink tbey have a practicable
and feasible plan, and that they will be
able to convince the public of it. If it is.
and from their description it seems so, it
will be great thing for the two cities be

There is more catarrh in this section of
the country tban all other diseases put
together, and until the last few years was
supposed to be incurable. For a great
many years doctors pronounced it a local
disease, and prescribed local remedies, and
by constantly failing to cure with local
treatment, pronounced it incurable.
Science has proven catarrh to be a con
stitutional disease, and therefore requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney &
Co., Toledo, Ohio, is tbe onlv constitu
tional cure on the market. It ia taken
