WHO WAS HE?
The llidy i.f it M n ho Wat Drowurd and
Found at Martin's Landing.
George Weaver, of Fairnort. Ia.,
while over on ti e IlJ.nois side of the
river yesterday, came upon the body
of a dead, man among' the willows
that line the ri er bank at what is
known -as Marti i"s landing. He im
mediately went back to Fairport and
telegraphed t Coroner Hawes of the
finding of the bdy. Deputy Coron
er Eckhart went down in the after
noon ami em.ianeied a jury com
posed of Alvii FeUstel. foreman:
tieorge Vv'eavcf1-. J. Weaver
Andrew l.eeve-. William A. Kcevcs,
and V. S. !a aci . who after viewing
the remains. iv.i.iin.-.l only one wit
ness, (ieorge W. -.iNe:. who found the
body. testified to having been on
the Illinois shore looking for shells
when he discovi red the body among
the willow s. T the best of wit
ness, judgnunt the. man must have
been dead three months. There be
ing no other cvi lence to be had the
jury returned a verdict that the
unknown man came to his death bv
drowning in the Mississippi river."
Dt-iwript ion of the Man
The body was that of a man pro!-
ably 40 years of age and about 5 feet
6 inches i'i height. He hail black
whiskers, and w re jeans and dark
coat and vest, lie had on a pair of
congress shoes and had nothing what
ever in his pockets by which a clue
could he obtained to his identifica
tion. All there was in his pockets j
was a colored landkerchief and 1i
white one. Dej uty Coroner Kckhart '
arranged to hav-.- the body buried i
there and in all probability the name
of the unfortunate man will never
be know n. From where the body
was found the only conclusion that
could be drawn is that it was washed
up among the villows during the
high water and has been there since.
Thursday. at his home in IovvaCitv,
occurred the death of Marvin A.
Breed, aged (10 years. He was a
lruggist in Peoria till about 10 years
ago, w hen he untie his home in this
state. For several years his mind
has been failing under the progress
of softening of the brain, anil his
death had been for some time ex
pected. He was a brother of Mrs.
Henry Loosley. of Iowa City, wife of
the well known igent of the Hock
Island road at tint place, and Friday
morning .-he am! her husband ac
companied the remains to this city.

As a matter of fact, Frenchmen are
about the least t emocratic people in
the world in their social longings and
ideals. France i s politically a repub
lic, but socially i. keeps up most of
the characteristic s of an aristocracy.
The difference b tween her and Amer
ica in this respect is prodigious. In
the United States it is impossible to
find a man with a decoration; in
France it is difficult to find anybody
without one. In spite of the revolu
tion, titles are f- till maintained, and
the highest ambi'.ions of every bour
geois would be satisfied if he could
marry his daugh'.er to a nobleman.
The insatiable thirst to put on a
uniform of some kind, no matter what,
has often been used as a reproach
against our Gallic friends.
Ignoran ?e of Cooks.
A prominent physician says that the
average cook is absolutely ignorant of
sanitary cause t nd effect, and that
the Kitchen processes are sources of
illness more ofter than is imagined by
placing milk, jelly, butter, and other
absorbents in ti e open air without
covering them ip. If the medical
man wants to secure organisms for in
vestigation he will expose gelatine to
the air where malignant germs are
confined, and the gelatine quickly at
tracts and holds them, which is the
same thing that the food will do.
