Truly lade "Death Lovea a Batatas

Cakboh Cliff. Oct 17. At 6 o'clock
Sunday morning Oct. 11, the dark angel
of death claimed Mies Kate O'Donnell,
daughter of Hr. and Mrs. Patrick O'Don
nell, of Carboa Cliff. The deceased was
in her 24.li year. See was born in Suef
field. Iil., and her parents moyed to Car
bon CI .11 wben she waa a cbilcl.
She was a remarkably sweet and bright
girl, beloved by ber schoolmates, teachers
and a general favorite with all. For
the past five 3 ears sbe held the
position of stenographer at the Argillo
works, Her duties were performed
in such a manner that she en
deared herself to all. In her failing
health, sbe was always cheerful and gave
evidence of her many good traits of
character. Id her death, her parents.
sisters and brothers and Carbon Cliff lose
an accomplished and highly esteemed
From a worldly point of view it is sad
to see a young lady cut down in the prime
of life with the most brilliant prospects
before her. Her friends View the remains
and gaze upon that which is about to re
turn to its mother earth, with sorrow.
Her relatives stand over the newly made
grave, and see lowered to its final resting
place the remains of her they loved so
well; and their bearts feel the keenest
anguish that one upon the tbreshhold of
womanhood must die. Tet we do
not stand and gate down into
the grave, for the coffin contains
only thatof which is written, "dust thou
art and unto dust thou sbalt return."
Yet, it is a gain to die young, for oaly
the good are early called.
Tuesday morning her remains were
taken to oar meld followed by a large
concourse of sympathizing friends.
Rev. Father O'Hara, ia whose church
she was organist, accompanied the re
mains and assisted Rev. Father O'Connor
in the services and delivered an impres
sive funeral address, speaking eloquently
of the many lovely womanly qualities of
the deceased and of her christian charac
ter. Tbe floral offerings were profuse
and beautiful. If sympathy could render
comfort to the bereaved ones ii their dis
tress.out of tbe depths of our hearts would
we all offer it.
If there is one place in the three cities
that is more dangerous than our Twentyi
fourth 6treet railroad crossing, it is the
intersection of Brady and Fifth streets,
Davenport. The city cf Rock Inland,
the public at large, tbe rai'roads, the
street railway company and the govern
ment saw tbe necessity of a viaduct at
Twenty-fourth street, and it was provided
for and is now in course of erecticn
Now a more is on foot which the Daven
port Democrat and the Davenport &
Rock Island Railwav company are en
gineering for a viaduct at Fifth and
Brady streets, Davenport. Ttiere have
been a number of lives lost there which
ought to be sufficient argument in support
of tbe project. The Argcs hopes in the
interest of safety, that tbe undertaking
will win. The Democrat has the follow
ing concerning it:
Tbe greatest danger point in tbe city
is at the Brady street crossing on Fifth.
Several violent deaths have been brought
about there. Many a time has tbe ques
tion of a viaduct across tbe locomotive
track been brought up and allowed to die
out. It is now on tbe carpet again, end
should be agitated to a finish. Tbe city
of Davenport, the Chicago, Rock Inland
& Pacific railroad, and tbe Davenport &
Rock Inland Railway company are emi
nently interested in this life saving plan.
It is useless to discuss the great need of
the viaduct at tbe point named every
citizen and every railroad man in the
community admits iL The chief duty is
to get to work at It and accomplish the
work erect tbe viaduct. In this the
railroads and the city should take a lively
interest without too long delay.
Runaway aa the Brldxe.
There was an exciting runaway on the
government bridge Saturday morning.
A horse attached to a delivery wagon be
came frightened on Armstrong avenne on
the island and tore down the street to
ward the bridge. Tbe guard saw him
coming and closed one gate but had not
time to close tbe other. The horse aimed
for the open space left and got through,
the wagon striking tbe gate and tbe
sbock throwing tbe driver onto the deck
He waB caught in the lines and dragged
a dozen feet, more or less, when he got
loose, and in an instant was on his feet
chasing tbe runaway horse. Tbe animal
was by this time near the Davenport etd
of the draw, the gates of which bad been
stopped to impede his progress. He
went right at them and broke through.
The thock, however, put a damper upon
his ambition to be a wild, untamable
steed, and be was caught soon after.
Horse, wagon and man were somewhat
the worse for the affair, but the damage
miKrn nave oeen greater all around, as
there is no more dangerous place for a
runaway than on a bridge.
I had a severe attack of catarrh and be
came so deaf I could not bear common
conversation. I suffered terribly from
roaring in my head. I procured a bottle
of Ely's Cream Balm, and in three weeks
could bear aa well as I ever could, and
now I can say to all who are afflicted
with the worst of diseases, catarrh, take
Ely's Cream Bala and be cured. It is
worth 1,000 to any man, woman or
child surtering from catarrh. A.

It is now stated that the Postal Tele

The publio Is familiar with tbe action
of the company in rejecting the ordi
nance formed by the Moline city council
in accordance with the desires of tbe com
pany's agents. The head officials obi
jected to tbe clause that required tbem to
keep a night office, though only until 12
o'clock, and wrote Mayor Wessell that
unless the council amended it ordinance
they would not go through Moline. Tbe
Orion Times has the following:
Tbe Postal Telegraph company have
concluded to change their route from this
Dlace to Moline. Some disagreement
about the way the company intended to
enter Moline has occasioned this. They
will now follow the Rock Island & Peoria
railway from here to Rock Island and
from that city to Moline. The company
had already about a mile of holes dug
along the highway north of town and
about a half mile of poles set. and will
have to lose all this work on account of
Thus it wou'd appear that the company
proposes to go to Moline anyway : but
then what would be their object in
changing their route? asks tbe Republl
can-Journal. "It tbey come to Moline
by any rou'e whatsoever, they must.
under conditions imposed by the present
ordinance, keep a night operator."

been for over 6 years a promi

He has seen nearly all the great
