tettlers of this vicinity will recall to mind

and bis long residence in their midst, and
will bear testimony to bis rt putable and
useful life as a citizen of thitt city and of

many years, being in early diys the
senior partner of Gray, Cooper & Co.,

the latter firm came the present Rock Isl
and Lumber company which is still in
existence and doing business in this city.
Mr. Gray served several terms as alder
man with credit to himself a id profitably
to his fellow citizens. It was during his
term that the matter of building the city

Mr. Gray was one of the ei.rly members
of the Masonic fraternity of this city, and
was always highly esteemed for his ex

was Henry Bickerton, weitonbisway

now that he lived at Sioux City and had
been at Peoria visiting. It is since
learned that he was not a drinking man,
bnt was sick and bad been for eight
years. It is thought he took morphine.
He must have been in a dt zed condition
as he fell off the train at Cedar Rapids,
and died on reaching Sioux City.

who was well liked about the
car barns, lingered a long time after the
injury, and finally died from its effects,
his father prohibiting amputation.

Brandreth's pills are the best medicine
First They are purely vegetable, in
fact a medicated food.
Second The same dose always pro
duces the same effect other purgatives
require increased doses and finally cease
Third They purify Ihe blood.
Fourth They invigorate the digestion
and cleanse the stomach and bowels.
Fifth They stimulate the liver and
carry off vitiated bile and other deprayed
The first two or three doses tell the
story. The skin becomes clear, the eye
bright, the mind active, digestion is re
stored, costiveness cared, the animal
vigor is recruited and all decay arrested.

Yesterday morning found a mantel of
beautiful snow spread over the earth and
the silvery Hikes fell gradually all day,

Al'.hough the snow drifted consider

trains were, with a few exceptions, on

out and no trouble was experienced in
keeping the road open. The C . B. & Q
trains were nearly all on time, except a
few freights, and altng ther the effect on
transportation was barely noticeable.
