Yesterday's Withering Heat At
tended by Fatal Results.
M illlana Miehle liea From the KflVcts
r the Man's Plerelns Rays
Withering, blistering, sweltering heat,
the hottest of tbe season so far, and it is
hoped the hottest to be this season, was
yesterday's weather record. If there is
anybody in Rock Island who found cool
comfort anywhere within the city limits
yesterday, he has not up.to the present
writing- reported his discovery, novel as
is must have been, to Thk Akods. The
temperature reached the 94 above zero
mark, and tbe shady side of a building
seemed to be a locality remote from civ
ilization. There were a number of cases of proa
tration, not to say serious, and one that
proved fatal. Wm. Biehle, a teamster in
thn employ of Huber's brewery, who bad
been suffering from the effects of the
heat since Saturday, was overcome on
Ti.Ird avenue and Twentythird street
about 5 o'clock last evening and fell in
ai unconscious condition on tbe side
w tlk. He was carried into tbe yard east
of Judge's bottling works, and Dr. W. H.
Ludswig summoned to attend him. The
doctor at once pronounced the case un
mistakably fatal, and after prescribing
all that was possible to alleviate tbe
unfortunate (man's suffering, directed
that he be conveyed to Mercy Hospital
in Davenport, and the oatrol wagon was
sent for and took the patient la that hos
pital. He did not recover consciousness
and expired at 10 o'clock this morning.
He was 35 years of age and a single
man. The remains were taken in charge
by Undertaker Wheelan. and tbe funeral
will be held from St. Mary's church at 4
o'clock tomorrow afternoon.
Gus Miller, Sr., was overcome by the
hsat while posting a stand of bills at the
corner of Sixteenth street and Second
avenue this morning. He was recussi
ttied a few moments afterward by a lib
eral application of cold water, and was
taken to his home on Fourteenth street
where be is resting easier this afternoon.
Wni'e tbe mercury has not been within
one degree of as high as it was yesterday,
there has been a great deal of suffering
from the heat today. Tbe signal eery ice
brings the cheering inttl'igence of a
promised decline in temperature tonight
with probability of a thunder storm.
Tbe forecast of the weather as furnished
by tbe weather corps is appended:
For Illinois, Indiana and Missouri, fair
wiin continued warm weather today and
prohibit cooler by Wednesday. For
Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ne
braska and Iowa, local showers today,
fair and probably cooler tomorrow. For
North and South Dakota, fair and prob
ably cooler Tuesday night. For Ne

UP IX A BALLOOX.
Silas Ream May naiir a Mnceensfel
Atrenslon and Parachute Leap From
Five thousand people visited Black
Hawk's Watch Tower yesterday, taking
advantage of the admirable service offered
by the street car syndicate and actuated
otherwise, no doubt, by divers motives
some to escape tbe beat no doubt by tbe
cool ride through the country and re
freshing breezes which fan tne famous
lookout when other places are withering,
others to hear the music by the colored
musicians and still others to take
advantage of the commanding view of
Mits Rosa May's balloou ascension from
Vandruff's island. This was the main
attraction of the day no doubt, and while
awaiting tbe event. Black Hawk Inn and
Isaac Munk's fairy merry-go-round ens
tertained the throng charmingly. The
Tower inn under the present arrange
ment and the merry-go-round are always
popular attractions in themselves.
It was 6:30 when the balloon, having
been properly inflated, was cut loose and
it gradually ascended with the daring
aeronaut, pursuing a northeasterly direc
tion until it attained an elevation of
3.000 feet from the island, and when
within full view of the multitude Miss
May cut loose and entrusted her fate to
the. parachute. She shot down 200 feet,
when the parachute opened and the force
of the fall being checked the descent
assumed the nature of a steady, gliding
The woman landed safely about a mile
to tbe northeast of the Tower. She had
prepared for emergencies before smarting
by strapping a life preserver about her
for use in tbe event of tbe wind carrying
the balloon in a position that might
bring her down in the water.
The event was a thrilling success in
every particular, and tbe best ever seen
hereabouts. Miss May will make another
ascension and leap next Thursday after
noon from Vandruff's island.
OTHER FEATS COMING.
Besides the young school mf.'?m of
Ohio who is soon to arrive hens on her
wheel, we are possibly to have the honor
of entertaining John Howard and wife,
of Seattle, who are likely to come through
here soon. They are now nearicg tbe
eastern border of Nebraska and will
presently invade Iowa, beaded this way.
They are traveling on foot for a wiger of
$5,000 that they will reach Chicago by
Sept. 15. They carry bedding, tent and
cooking utensils in a wheelbarrow, sur
mounted by tbe stars and stripes. Mrs.
Howard is dressed in male attire and has
tbe appearance of a young boy. Both
are enjoying excellent health and are in
good spirits over tbe prospect of reach
ing tbe goal of their journey long before
the time set for their ajrival. They are
not wasting any time and claim they will
reach the destination by tbe last of Au
gust. They started on March 10 and
had bad weather to contend with.
SURGEON AND PHYSICIAN.
Row f h Cm of AnnMittietica Haa Ralacd
tbe Character of the Newer lrofeaalon
TL physician and surgeon are now social
equals, and receive exactly tbe same pro
fessional education; while many general
practitioners are men of the highest attain
ments and skill, obtained from familiarity
with the Protean forms of disease. Tbe
universities now grant a degree in surgery,
and the colleges of surgery have ceased to
exact apprenticeship in even the nominal
form demanded thirty years ago.
Surgeons who have been made knights
or baronets are quite as numerous as the
members of the sister branch of physic, and
the incomes earned by the operators are
assuredly as large as those enjoyed by the
prescribe!. But the surgeons have won
tb position they now occupy only by the
brilliant advances which their art has
made, and by the skill and courage of a
long line of practitioners.
From Ambrose Pare, the barber who fol
lowed the arm i of Francis I, to John Hun
ter who, as a Hunterian orator only lately
remarked, more than any other man helped
to make surgeons gentlemen is a long
jump. Yet even John Hunter was a rough
and ready person compared with the ten
ants of Harley street today. Those who
remember Listen. Syme, and Chassaignac,
Travers, Clive. Ferguson and Von Grafe,
the Lanjfenbocks, and Abemethy, and Ast
ley Cooper, Brodie, Bell and Guthrie, can
not but wonder at the progress which the
art, as known to those great men. has made
within tbe last thirty years. Indeed, it has
advanced more rapidly or, at least, its
achievements are more obvious and ap
preciable than has been the case with
medicine, in which advance must necessar
ily be tentative and discovery has to re
main for a longer time in the hypothetical
Tbe surgeon does not now use his knife
as freely as his predecessors did. He is
more conservative than of old; more anx
ious to save a limb than to remove it. An
tiseptics have within the last twenty years
reduced the mortality from operations to
an extent which was scarcely credited when
Lister introduced them. But the greatest
reform in the modern history of surgery
was when chloroform was discovered to be
an anesthetic capable of destroying pin,
permitting the surgeons to operate quietly,
without the cries or groans of the patient
disturbing his equanimity.
For the first time the delicate operations
could be performed with accuracy. It is.
Indeed, not too much to say that it was
only after this most beneficent of all the
gifts of science to suffering humanity was
put into surgeons' hands that many men of
high culture and sensibility cared to prac
tice surgery. London Telegraph.
