Attempted t Mavlay Him.
A few months ago a Davenport black
smith named J. A. White, wbo had
worked for several jeara in the Rock Isl
and shops in that city, and badseveral ac
quaintances in Rxk Island, moved te
Chicago. He was about CO years af age.
A brief telegraphic allusion to how he
worsted a Cbicigo foot-pad who attempt
ed to hold him ud is supplemented by the
Chicago Tribune's detailed account of
the affair, as follows:
J. A. White, a blacksmith of Daven
port. Iowa, shot and possibly fataily
wounded William ' Delmaga, an ex con
vict, who, with a companion, attempted
to rob h'm at Clark near Tuirteenth
street early Toursday morning.
While, who is 60 years old. was walk
ing norm on CUrk street at 7 o'clock
when two men jiimped at him, one fratn
the front and the otLer the rear. One
struck him with a knife, icflicting a
light wound under his left arm, while the
other hit him with a blunt in
strument behind the ear. As he
fell he drew his revolver. The high
wayman wit'a his knife raised it to strUe
him again whrn White fired. The fellow
fell backwaid to the pavement and was
assisted to his feet by his pal. and both
disappeared down the street. Wbi'e got
up and went at once to the Twenty-sec
ood street police station, where he re
ported the matter. A physician was
called, and his wound, which was slight,
was dressed. He said that he whs
boarding at the Hodson house on Clark
street, and that he had come t Cabazo
in search of work.
Two hours after Whire reported the
matter at the station a patrolman arrested
George Windknecht, who was helping
William Dal m age alors. Dalmaee was
suffering from a eunsbot wound in the
left breast, and as the men could not give
a satisfactory account of themselves the
officer called the patrol wagon. Dalmase
was taken to the Mercy hospital, where
the physicians said the fifth rib was frac
tured and that the bullet had lodged near
the spinal column. The wound was dan
gerous and might prove fatal.
Windkenecht was locked up at the
Twenty-second street station. Subse
quently White went to the hospital and
identified Dalmage as the man wbo struct
him with a knife, and whom he shot. He
could not identify Windknecht. Ia Da
mage s pocket was found a clasp-knife
the blade of which was bloodstained.
Conreid's comic opera company will
6ing the gTeat New York Casino suc
cess, "Poor Jonathan," at the Burtis op
era house on Tuesday, Feb. 2. ' Poor
Jonathan" was written by Carl Mi'.loeck -er.
the composer of "The Black Hussar,"
"The Beggar Student," and other comic
operas, about two years ago, at the sug
gestion of Mr. Conried, wbo was then
visiting Vienna. Mr. Conried wanted
something novel different from the gen
eral run of comic operas and the idea
struck him that one with an American
subject, devoid of the picturesque and
gorgeous costuming which is considered
the necessary adjunct of a comic opera.
would take in America. No sooner said
than done, and "Poor Jonathan" was
the outcome. ther Carl Milloecker
became very much Americanized or Mr.
Conried convened to him his idea in very
complete form, for it must be admitted
that the production is thoroughly per
meated with ibe flavor of Americanism.
The plot is infinitely amusing and inter
esting. The coming engagement of Ezra Ken dall
in the "Pair of Kids" at Harpir's
theatre next Friday evening promises to
be the laughing event of the season.
Everyone will be interested to see how
Kendall manipulates that sticky fiy paper
and how be runs that mile in "2:06" on
the revolving treadmill. Havins; done it
for six consecutive years there is every
reason to believe he has the fine points of
fun "pat," so to speak. There is a res
taurant scene in the "Kids" which is said
to be one continuous string of funny bur
lesque, comical pantocaine tricks and
sleight of hsni action. Kendall, iu his
character of the old "jay." of course runs
the restaurant, and tbe way he does it
must be seen to be appreciated.

The Scott Medical Institute
which has just closed its work
of free treatment has
been a success.so far as can be
proved by the numbers of
afflicted people who have
thronged the Institute daily,
many of whom found relief
after the first treatment. This
is a medical institute coming
to our city well recommended,
the physicians having received
their diplomas from the best
medical colleges in the United
States as well as in foreign
countries, and it has come to
stay as can be proved by the
contracts they have made
which are without exception by
the year. The physicians have
decided to place the price of
treatment within the reach of
the poor as well as the rich.
They treat all diseases with
marked success with their
Catarrh I Diseases of Women
These physicians also guar
antee to stop any pain in the
body in from three to five min
utes without the use of medi
cine. Remember it costs noth
ing to see these doctors and
find out what your troubles
are, and if you can be cured
they will take your case, but if
you can't, then they will tell
you so. No matter what your
sickness is, go and get relieved
or find out if you can be cured.
Catarrh, they guarantee to
cure no matter how long stand
ing. Those pronounced in
curable or who had doctored
for months with their family
physician, are especially in
vited. It does not take months
to cure any case nor weeks
