but a9 the man is supposed to have left
the city last night he is probably out of

Harry Fox, trainmaster for tha Rock
Island, left last night for Chicago. It is
surmised that his visit will be followed i
by tho announcement that Mr. Fox has
been appointed superintendaat of the
Iowa division to succeed John Given.
Thesn snaplcions are aroused by the fact
that itr. Fox has recently made several
chances of Iowa agencies, putting new
men in since the vacancy occasioned by
nr uiven's lamented death, and it is
thoaf;ht such changes wculd not have
been made had there bren doubt as to
their confirmation by the man who suc

Hampton. April 19 The funeral of
MiasCattie Wendell, who died at her
home here on April 4, was held from the
M. . church Thursday afternoon at 2
o'clock. Rev. A. M Stocking, of Moline,
and Rev. J. Q Adams, officiating. Tbe
services were very impressive and the
floral offerings, though in great profusion,
were but a feeble expression of the love
and esteem in which Hiss Wendell was
held. A very touching example of tbe
loss the church baa sustained in the young
lady's demise was shown by a crayon por
trait of the deceased heavily draped in
mourning being hung over her vacant
cbair in the choir, while a profusion of
beautiful floral offerings from friends in
Muscatine and Geneseo were placed
about the casket. A quartette composed
or T. B. Downer, of Muscatine, J L
McNabney and tbe Misses Minnie Carev
and Laura Keller rendered appropriate
selections, alter wnicn tbe remains were
conveyed to their last resting place in
