THAT MOCK MARRIAGE.
Cansdale on Trial at Davenport The
Prisoner and. His Appearance.
The Cansdale case has been on trial for
tbe past day and a half in the district
court at Davenport. All the details of
Ihe offense alleged egainst the pnsioner
are fresh in the minds of the public his
mock marriage with one Mary Stratton.
of Cordova, the girl being led for a fort
night or so to believe that she was his
wife, and then being deserted.
The prosecuting witness told her story
w'th apparent sincerity. Other evidence
was introduced to show that such a
preacher as Rey. Stone, whose name ap
pears on tbe marriage certificate, never
existed here or officiated in this district,
and a dozen witnesses have testified for
the state and the defense. The trial is
still in progress today.
Cansdale is present in the court room
and the girl whom he is alleged to have
victimized has been, with her mother, a
continuous attendant upon the trial, all
watching the proceedings with interest.
Cansdale's appearance is considerably
changed from what it was when he was
up for preliminary examination in the
justice's court. He has combed down
the ends of his moustache, whereas in
the justice's court the said ends were
carefully waxed and turned np toward
his eyes, which they nearly reached. He
was a typical tough in appearance, and
his looks called forth the following ad
vice from his attorney, said to have been
whispered confidentially when consulting
over the caee: "Cansdale. if you ""ill
only shave off that d moustache, I
may etand some show of clearing you
While the thing might take with the
women it won't take with the iury." B3
this as it may, the prisoner's appearance
is improved by the way he makes his toi
What Comes From Well Water.
Health authorities have persistently
cautioned the public about the dangers
there are in the use of well water. Health
Commissioner Eyster has repeatedly
called attention to it, and the Iowa and
Illinois Medical society ha9 taken a stand
pointing out the risk that is run in using
well water. The Juliet News pursuing
the Mine line of argument sats:
Dr. Evar.s says that he was called this
week to visit a patient attacked w.tn
typluid fever, and upon irquiry found
that there wen? Eouielhiair like h !cz -a

of that nature are Slth diseases and if
they are to have no thought of themselves
and their little ones the law should step

Or the many hotels of Chicago, there
is none more convenient or where better
accommodations will be f und for the
average citizen visiting Chicago than the
Continental, at tbe corner of Wabash
avenue and Madison street. It is not
one of the World's Fair city's palace
hostelries. but it is a neat, comfortable
house, made particularly attractive to
Rock Islanders visiting Chicago, by the
fact that behind the counter are found
two Rock Islanders. C. O. Bloom, bo
long the head clerk at the Rock Island
house, occupies a similar position at the
Continental, and is as affable aud hand some
as ever. He looks after the day
watch, while at eight tbe smiling counte
nance of Chailes E. Case beams over the
register. The proprietress, Mrs. Collins,
is thoroughly conversant with the Deeds
of the traveling public and spares no
pains to make her hotel popular at all
There is scarcely a day but that some
Rock Islander is found at tbe Continen
tal, and former residents of this city
now living in Chicago make it a point of
dropping atound there every day or two
in hopes of creeting old friends and
they are not as a rule disappointed.

Last Evening! Alarm.
The fire alarm about 5 o'clock last
night came from the corner of Fifteenth
street and Fourth avenue, where some
children playing had built a bonfire in
the rear of John Stroehles residence
near a shed which caught fire. The
alarm was turned into the police depart
ment by mistake, and the patrol wagon
responded in short order, after which an
alarm was sent into tbe fire depanment.
A quick response from the latter un
doubtedly saved a serious fire, as the
shed, which was all in flames, was only
a few feet from several dwellings. It
was extinguished in a few minutes, the
damage being not more than $25.
