The I.ate Mrs. Kllen Mltldlehain, Whose
Ieutli Occurred Yeaterday Hlofrrarriilcal
Mrs. Eilen Middleham. whose death
was announced in Tbe Argus last even
ing, was the widow of the late Rober.
Middleham, her death occurring shortly
after 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
She was a native of Shropshire, Eng
land, and came to this city together with
her husband, William Cumpson, in 1858.
The latter entered the services of his
country under Major H. C. Con
nelly, v.ho was then a captain in
the Fourteenth Illinois cavalry and lost
his life in the siuih, leaving but one son,
WiUiam Cumpson, who had resided with
his mother up to the time of her death.
Deceased was married to Robert Middle
ham in 1875 who died several years ago.
Mrs. Middleham, who followed at
times the vocation of a professional
nurse, was well known throughout the
three cities where her kind, patient dis
position in times of suffering had en
deared her to many who will hear with
sincere sorrow of her demise.
The funeral occurred from her late
home at 525 Twenty-first street at 4
o'clock this afternoon.
THE MIDNIGHT ALARM.
A Small Kire at Iarker, Laundry I.aHt
Night Kxtcnt of the FhimeK.
Some passers-by discovered smoke
pouring out of the windows of the Par
ker laundry in the Teegler block on
Third avenue between Seventeenth and
Eighteenth streets last night just before
midnight and immediately turned in an
alarm to the fire department, which re
sponded in remarkably quick time, and
shortly after bad tbe fire located.
It was found to be in a smali engine
room built j-ist outside tbe main build
ing, into wbich an archway had been cut.
Two streams were turned on and it took
hut a few moment to subdue the
flitnes. The smoke, however, bad
filled the entire building and it
was some time before the families of
Messrs. Parker who live in the flats above
could return to beds. Tbe cause of the
fire in unknown, as it originated in a cor
ner in the little engine room where the
boiler is also located, but it was proba
blv from tbe furnace which is situated
The loss will not be more tban $75
and tbe laundry which has been stopped
temporarily, will be running again this
That Will do To Tell.
About as silly an argument as any pre
sented in behalf of protection and there
have been plenty of them is tbat offered
by the Union. Hero it is:
The other day a republican got into a
group of democratic farmers who sturdily
proclaimed tbat tbe protective feature of
tbe tariff was of no benefit to anybody,
and talked of the good old limes under
the revenue tiriff before the war. Later,
these same men. with politics out of
mind, talked of tbe changes made in
prices how about everything thev raised
brought more now tban in 1860. and
everything tbey had to buy was cheaper
as for instance, a carriage bolt, then la
boriously wrought by hand, cost 40centp.
while now two or three of them can be
got at a hardware store for a nickel.
Those men couldn't see th&t protection
to borne industries had made the changes
That is a pretty good sample of tbe
benefits of protection-carriage bolts are
cheaper. Of course modern snience tbat
provided machinery to turn bolts by so
many great gross an hour where they
formerly used to turn out so many dozen
in a day by hand, is all due to protection.
This is on a par with the republican idea
tbat tbe increased price for American
cerials abroad in a year when foreign
crops were short, should be attributable
to protection of American industries.
liliK-k Hawk Statue.
Rock Island, 111 , Sept. 29. Editor
A nous: Tbe public have been hereto
fore informed tbat O. J Dimick has pre
sented to this city in the name of his
daughter, Miss Bescie Dimick, a granite
statue of Illinois' great chief. Black
Hawk. The history of Black Hawk is
well known to tbe people of Rock Island
county, as this was his home and tbe
home of his tribe. Therefore it
is very fitting that we erect to his mem
ory this granite shaft.
Tbe monument is about ready , and we
expect soon to set it up in Spencer Square.
It is proposed to celebrate the event in a
fitting manner. The order of Red Men
will have charge of the public ceremon
ies wbich will take place in the afternoon.
In the evening we will have a concert in
the square and c-ome fire works
I would be much pleased if the people
of Rck Inland and the neighboring
counties would turn out on this occasion,
especially the farmers and their families
This monument mark a very interesting
period in tbe history of this locality. n 1
we hope for a grand turn out of the peo
pie on the div vt tbe dedication. I will
announce to the public when tbe dedica
tion will take place, nrolvibly within two
weeks. William Jacksox.

TWO STORES ENTERED LAST NIGHT.
Coyne's Drug Store aud Hopkins' Jewelry
.Store Burglarized The Stolen Property
How the Work Was Hone.
Pom Bybon. Sept. 29 Some time be
tween 12 and 1 o'clock last nigbt tbe
drug store of C. C Coyne and the jew
elry store of E. R. Hopkins adjoining
the drug store, were entered by burglars.
The two stores are under one rooT. In
the rear of the jewelry store is a store-room
used by Mr. Coyne as a storage room for
glass, oils and paint. In the east end of
the room is a window under a pair of
ttairs, through which the tblev.s entered
by breaking the window. Opposite this
window on the other side of the room is
a door communicating wiih the jewelry
store. This door was closed find against
it were two Urge oil barrels almost full.
These wete moved, the door taken off
tbe binges and the j.-welry store entered.
Thi-re tbe outBiie plate of the safe door
was blown off 'be hinges, but tbey failed
to seriously effect the fire proof cement of
door and so failed to open the safe. But
little was taken from this store aside
from a few cheap chain and napkin
rings. borne heavy plate 1 silver in one
of the show cases was not iou -bed. From
there they undoubtedly entered the drug
store through an in-iiie side door com
nuiicating with the oil room by again
removing the locks from the door.
Thi store they plundered of about $25
or $3t) worth of cigars and fancy good,
some i-fiiall change in the money drawers.

Thin is Mr. Covne's third experience

far been found to the robbers. Mrs.
Brown who lives next door beard them,
i1ao Mr. Ney, tbe hardware merchant.
who also heard a messenger going up to
Dr. Bruners office across the street,
which fict may have scared tbe robbers
Some of tee tools used were found in
the jewelry store and hud been stolen
from Gibbson's blacksmith shop which
had also been entered.
