Koek Island will experience no se
rious results from the money scare
that has been prevailing throughout
the country. The local banking
houses have taken time by the fore
lock and amply forestalled themselves
for any emergency that might possi
bly arise. Money is consequently
very close for the reason that the
banks are not floating any paper un

a better outlook. Loans are not be

but it s an old saying that truth is
often stranger than fiction, ami it's
indeed applicable in this case. The!
whole story of the atlair would till a !
book, but briefly the facts are these:
The two cousins formed an attach
ment for one another some two years
ago. Both families live in the west
end of town, but though they are re
lated they have never gotten along
well together ami the associations of
thetwo cousins were always discour
aged by both families. But love
laughs at locksmiths, and on the lJSth
of last Julv the two cousins managed
to evade the watchful eyes of both
their families and going out to Cam
bridge they procured a marriage li
cense. They gave t heir names cor
rectly, out tlesignaieti i eoria asineir
home. They were married by Police
Magistrate "Randall, of that place,
and returned home again that even
ing. Now. the funny part of it is
that no one has ever heard of it and
even the girls, who work with the
voung ladv in the store, have never
suspected it. Their associations to
all appearances are the same that
thev were previou si v, ami although
neaiLlv a year has passed, their secret
is known but to a few. but it will
come out some day and when it does
everybody will be surprised."
The department Called to Subdue Small
Itlazex An Accident.
The fire department has had three
calls since last evening to sfibdue in
cipient blazes in various parts of the
city. The first alarm was sent in at
5 o'clock yesterday afternoon, fire
having been discovered on the roof
of the Maucker house, at the corner
of Fourth avenue and 'Sixteenth

almost instantaneously, being but a

those times, but people didn't mind
it. There was another hotel then up
where the Rock lland National bank
now stands called' the Graham house,
and also one on 1 he same spot now
occupied by the Rock Island house.

When the first alarm was sounded
this morning the Central Hook ami
Ladder company was exercising on
Moline avenue near Twenty-sixth
street. The regular driver was not
on duty, this being his day olT, and
when Laddcrman Mulcaliv, who was
temporarily in charge of the team,
got his horses down to busi
ness In1 found he had a contract on
his hands that was more than
he bargained for. The greyhounds
of the department started down the
avenue on a leap and when Twenty
