STORIES OF THE STREET.
Strange Thing: Picked I'p hy the .Stroller
on Hi Hound.
It was in one of the city drug
stores a few mornings asro that a well
dressed young lady entered and
walked to the back part of the store.
To the clerk who stepped up to wait
upon her she spoke a few words and
he turned and filled her order and
she went out. To The Stroller's look
of inquiry the clerk replied, "Yes,
she's one of them. Could you tell
it from her appearance or did some
one tell you? No, I don't know how
long she has been a morphine fiend,
but she gets away with a good deal
of it." Then to a series of questions
the clerk related some startling
things. The young lady who lives in
the upper part of town is but one of
the many victims of this terrible
habit. She is well connected and
her friends, who are almost wretched
over her misfortune, have done al
most everything to break her of the
appetite for the drug, but all in vain.
She says that one hour of morphine
intoxication is sweeter bliss than
anything else on earth can give and
she will endure all the terrible effects
that the reaction brings on just for
that one hour of happiness. She
goes out a gooil deal, anil from those
who are acquainted with her it is
learned that she is at times the jol
liest kind of company and exceed
ingly witty, and then again she be
comes morbidly depressed and in
fuses all with the gloom and sadness
that pervades her when she is in sul
len moods. Not alone this, but the
habit of prevaricating, which is so
common among persons addicted to
this pernicious h.ibit, is growing up
on her and it i said that she will
tell the most impossible and improb
able stories" with apparent sincerity
and in fact seems to believe them
herself. She was at first like others,
only a moderate user, but now the
doses are much larger, which has
made her trips to the drug store
more frequent and the clerk, who
knows her case so well, is of the
opinion that she also buys it in Dav
enport. There are few people who patron
ize the street cars that do not know
Al St uder, the little motorman who
holds down the front e.id of car 34
of the red line. Hi,' has been on the
street ears so long that many who
watch the ears day utter day from
their windows, always miss him
when he lays olT a day. For 10 long
years in all kinds of weather, behind
the slow moving mules of a few years
ago atid now switching the current
of the swift electric cars, he has seen
many funny experiences, and when
he is in the mood can relate them in
a way that is interesting. Few peo
ple, perhaps, have ever stopped to
think how far this veteran car man
rides every day, or how long a dis
tance it would make if stretched out
in one continuous stretch. He has
been on the front end of a street car
continuously for ID years, seven of
which he was on one of the old horse
cars, and the last three on an elec
tric car. His run which has always
been the same, is just five miles in
length, being from the east end of
Moline to the west end of Rock Isl
and, On the horse car he made
eight trips a day, and average of 80
miles for every day in the year.
Figuring 350 days to the year, which
was about the number he worked, it
will bp seen that he ran 28.000 miles
every year. This rate for -seven
years would make a grand total of
li)C,000 miles that he ran while driv
ing the horse car. Since going on
the electric car he has made an aver
age of 10 trips a day or 100 miles for
every day, and ligurhig for .'loO work
ing days as before, would make an
average of 35,000 miles a .year, or
7,100 miles more yearly on a motor
than on a horse car. In his three
years on the motor, he has ran 105,
000 miles, which added to his run by
horse power of llt(i.OOi) miles would
make a total of . 301,000 miles t hat
Shorty," as his associates call him,
has ridden during his life as a street
ear man. If the miles were strung
out in lineal measure the little mo
torman would find he had been
around the earth several times and
on his way to the moon.
"Some very romantic things often
happen to people who are not of that
turn of mind at all," said a Second
avenue merchant to The Stroller one
evening lately, "and the funny part
of it is, such happenings nearly al
ways turn out happy ones," contin
ued he. "You noticed that lady
and gentleman that I just spoke to
when they passed? Well, thc3''re
married and reside down town, and
if you would search the state
through its money to marbles that
you wouldn't iind a happier couple
although their marriage came about
in a rather romantic way, and one in
which n good many people would say
would not turn out happy. The
gentleman, who is quite well known,
went as a delegate to a convention
held in a neighboring city a few
years ago with no idea whatever of
entering the matrimonial state. ' It
was while sojourning in that city
that he met his fate. They met by
chance in the old way, but their
meeting has since proven to be a gen
uine case of love at lirst sight. He
remained there only a few days after
their meeting his business being
over he returned home. A corres
pondence was kept up with there
suit that before many months had
elapsed they were engaged, and not
long after the gentleman went back
to claim his bride, it being but the
second r,irrn thiv nmi mrt hon
came here and made their home, and
tew there were who knew just how
romantic their courtship had been,
but as I said before, it had been a
happy one, and that is as much as
could be wished for."
Dame rumo- tells some stranim
stories about the domestic relations
of a young couple who were married

goods clerk here and he married a
most estimable vouny ladv of this
city, but w ho, if all stories arc true,

afterward going to another city and
returning to wed the young lady men
tioned. They went" there to live
and everything went along all right
for a time", but finally the
groom became inattentive and not
alone that, but it is said he later
matle it decidedly unpleasant for his
young wife, and things got so badly
mixed that she came home to her
folks here and remained sornp time.
A truce was patched up later and
sue returned to him, Out only to
meet a repetition of the former state
of affairs, and being unable to put
up with it any longer, came back
home again and will probably re
