Trout and his wife have not been living
together since last January. Their mar
:tatl relations have always been more or
ies strained and it has bam known for
JMBt time that there would eventually

Ita snaking threats againet bis wife, and
was placed in jail here for the sime
Wfense. having only been re'eased iast
eek. Since he had been at liberty be
lad again threatened her, having done so
later than Friday night in Davenport,
ac always claiming that she was unfaith
Shl to him and thet he wculd kill her.
J is supposed he saw bis wife with Wil
3wn yesterday, and being flred with a
jealous passion attempted to kill her and
aisiself. as he had told her only a few
ihys ago that hj would do so unless she

The Twin City team was doomed to
defeat again yesterday, everything seem
ing to go against them. Twin City park
was well filled with fans and the crowd
would no doubt have been much larger
had it not been for the threatening
weather and the report circulated that
the municipal authorities intended to in
terfere with the game. Although' the
crowd was large, it was very orderly; so
near did it approach to being noiseless
that officers stationed outside with in
structions to interfere when it became
boisterous found it unnecessary to do so.
Cu hman and Zjis did the work in the
points for the home team while Donnelly
and Mahoney was the Joliet battery.
Cushman pitched a fairly eood game and
his support was also very good consider
ing the disadvantages under which the
boys played in the matter of being liable
to be hauled down in the patrol wagon at
any movement. The game was quite in
teres'.ing, though not characterized by
any especially brilliant features except
Dale's long running cato i in center.
Nulton also made two yery pretty stops
aud Roberts captured a cloud burst drive
by a bard run. The following is the

Had Chief Miller and his police force
been called out to put down the Spanish
inquisition they could not have looked
more solemn than they did yesterday
afternoon when armed as the chief ex
pressed it ' with all the weapons that the
law allows us," they made their way to
the ball park with the avowed purpose
of carrying out the instructions of the
mayor which were to prevent the game
and arrest the first man who threw a
bsli. Arrived at the park they fourd
tl a the gates had been locked and then
the question arose as to what move to
make nest. Not suffieient noise was bs
iog made inside 'o call it a disturbance
as the management had requested the
spectators to be as orderly as possible
and the request was complied with. It
wa9 then that Chief Miller threw aside
h's official robe and assumed the position
of an ordinary citizen bj going down
town, looking up Magistrate Wivill and
swearing out warrants against both
nines. These he brought back to the
grounds and arrested them at the close
of the game. Both nines reported to the
p dice station later when security was
put up for their acpearance today when
a continuance was granted until next

COMPARISON Tells the Tale.
The proper, most satisfactory and convincing way to form a
correct conclusion as to value is by comparison, It is im
possible to judge from newspaper quotations. For this rea
son we ask you to COMPARE our line of $4.35 Mens Suits
others advertise at $4.45; our line of $5.00 Men's Suits with
those others advertise at $7.50; our line of $6.50 Men's Suits
with those others advertise at $10.00; our line of 9.90 Men's
Suits with those others advertise at $13.50. COMPARISON
TELLS THE TALE.
If the quality, fit, workmanship and trimming is not better and the price lower than that of any
otherjdealer, don't buy. All we ask that you compare,--nothing can be fairer.
