Coilins was in the box for thi locals.
while Underwood officiated in a like c
pacttj for the Rockfords. This makes
three cames out of four taken by the
boys at Sckto wci, and the home team
ought to return it with pleasure by tak'
ing todsy's game at home and totter
row's also. The management Las de
cided to give a benefit game in the nesr
future In order to give those a chance to
assist in maintaining the team who bave
not felt abie to take Hock in the club. Ic

KUN DOWN BY A MOTOR.
Shocking Accident in Mollne This After-tuwi-Laara
Laura Oison the 10 year -old daughter
of Andrew Olson, of Moline was run
down by blue line car 89 in charge of
Motorman Harry Flight about 2 o'clock
this afternoon The accident occurred
at the grade near the Eleventh street
crossing and was by an east bound car.
The unfortunate little tirl was a deaf
mute and was in the act of running
across the track ahead of the car. The
motorman ran? his gong, set the brake
on his car and then reve rsed the current,
but the grade is heavy at this point
and the momentum carried it
along at a lively speed. Mo
torman Flight saw that it would be
impossible to stop the car and he '.cued
forward and attempted to shove the
girl aside, but the parasol she carried
struck him in the face, and ths car passed
over her, cutting off both limbs near tbe
knees. Tbe g'.rl will probably die.
