Before leaving for their respective
homes, tbe heirs of the lute D :nnis War

of the property as he should see fit for
tbebes; interests of tbe estate. Thi9
promise wag readily conceede 1, and it is
bel-eved that in a few days t'te property
will be in a fair way to be disposed of.
One of the heirs in speaking of the dis
position of the estate said Monday; "Tbe
way Mr. Mitchell has dlschurg ;d Kis duty

un n'mous desire that he be t-ppoinled

alone. Tbe property is aitur.'.cd in four
states, and tbe heirs are scattered. Wi'.h
Mr. Mitchell es administrator the prop
erty will be readily disposed of to the
be;? possibla advantage."
Value of the Kxtate.
The p.ygregate valuation of the prop
erty, it is now stated, has bsen greatly
overestimated at $200,000 The total
will not exceed $120,000, and this is con
siderably more than the value three
years 8o. It is believed tow that the
movement that has been oa foot for
some time to secure tbe lot opposite the
government building site by :he Masonic
fraternity for the erec. ion of a temple,
will assume more tangible shape and
that tbe opportunity to buy tt a reason
able figure will be readily accepted.
At all events the property will be gold.

man of very dissipated habits. He had
not been drinking yesterday, however,

More DaT.aport Paving.
The board of public worts at Daven
port opened bids yesterday for 70,000
yards luore of paving, including Front,
Brady, Main and Harrison streets. Tbe
lowest bids all around were those of the
Edwards ft Walsh Construction company,
though one other competitcr poshed this
company very closely. Action of the
council will be needed to determine the
award, but it looks en the outside, says
the Democrat, as though this firm would
receive the contract. Tlie bid was:
Double couree paving, all over, $1.66;
tingle course, $138 to $1.40; 16-incb

Perry made a good stagger at wresring
them from bim at an turly hour this
morning. For a day or two past it us
been known that tbe approach at the foot
of Seventeenth street in this city was in
bad condition, but Perry nevertheless
kept his hack running. He made Lis laM
trip across to Divenport al 9 o'clock last
night and started to come bick to tuis
city at 5 o'clock this morning. He was
coming along apparently all right and
was within 50 feet of the Illinois shore,
when suddenly the ice gave way and the
horses aiid sleigh was plunged into the
river. Perry jumped from his seat and
yelled, getting safe on the strong ice.
His call brought some railroad men near
by to the scene and tbey held up tbe
horses' beads while Perry went to Kerr's
livery barn, ewakened Fred Coss, who
telephoned for the police, and with the
aid of several persons and some ropes tbe
half frozen horses were rescued from theft
perilous position, but the sleigh was out
of sight under tbe ic. The horses, which
belonged to Maucker & Sinnett, were
taken to tbe barn and everything done to
keep tbem warm. Though pretty stiff
from tbe cold both the horses will proba
bly get along all right.
Later tbe sleigh was recovered. Perry
says it was the most thrilling experience
he eyerha i, that tbe horses were in the
water 50 minutes, and their struggles
were pitiful. He does not think one of
the horses will recover. Perry worked
like a Trojan to save them and says he
would not eo through it again for any

Sherlfl Gordon Invents a Scheme to Get

the whole iail building woud become

of the gas thai would back np from the
sewer. It was not only a matter of
cit'ch inconvenience to the residents cf
tbe building, but could be detected in
passing along the ea3t side of Four'erritb
street. When the Fourteenth e:ri

Sheriff Gordon has bit upon a
scheme which has entirely gotten rid ct

which is simple and unique. He has put
in a connection from the sswer to tb'
rear of the furnace which furnishes tl e
6team heat, and the draft thereby pro
dured centers all tbe gas ami carries it oil
up into the 60 foot fmake stack where it
is consumed. The new connection
works like a charm, and is a great re'ief

Kicked the Kmperor's Horse.
Prince Bismarck told a story of. the bat
tlefield of Koniggratz. The old emperor
then the kini; of Prussia bad exposed
himself and his stall to the enemy's fire
and would not hear of retreating to a safe
distance. At last Prince Bismarck rode
up to him, saying, "As responsible minis
ter I must insist upon your maiesty's re
treat to a safe distance. If your majesty
were to be killed the victory would be of
no use to us."
The king saw the force of this and slowly
retreated, but in his zeal returned again
and again to the front. "When I noticed
it," Prince Bismarck went on, "I only rose
in my saddle and looked at him. He un
derstood perfectly, and called out rather
angrily, 'Yes, I am coming:' But we did
not pet on fast enough, and at last I rode
up to the king, took my foot ont of the
right stirrup and secretly gave his horse
an energetic kick. Such a thing had never
before happened to the fat mare, but the
move was successful, for she set off in a
fine canter.' Pall Mall Budget.

Gourmand and Kpicure.
Pleasing the palate is the main end in
most books of cookery, but it is my aim to
blend the toothsome with the wholesome.
The term gourmand or epicure has been
strangely perverted; it has been conceived
synonymous with a glutton, who will eat
as long as he can sit, and drink longer than
he can stand, or like the great eater of
Kent, whom culler places among his
worthies, and tells us that he did eat with
ease thirty dozen pigeons at one meal, at
