Fourth Avenue Completed to
WORK ON THE LATTEE STREET.
Will the Sl.ie.le Course Withstand the
Truffle 1 here Eighteenth Street Next
and Then Twentieth Street Iliri-The
Contract Itefore the Council for Seven,
teenth. Nineteenth and Twenty-third
At noon yesterday Edwards &
Walsh completed the paving of
Fourth avenue to Twenty-fourth
street, and the paving forces were
then turned into tilling in the gap on
Nineteci tli street, which was left
open pending the lowering of sewer
pipes. This was finished this iiinrn
ing.and Fourth avenue is now a sub
stantial street from First to Twcntv
fourth s'rect two miles in length
and I'l blocks of which have been put
in this year. The curliiu and grad
ing of T.venl v-fouith si ret t between
Third ar d Filth avenues is now ;ro
ing forward, and tin; lirst of the week
Mr. Edwards expects to begin pav
ing, which he expects to wind up in
three days. Then lie will turn his
attentio i to Eighteenth street south
of Third avenue, where there are
four bio -ks to be paved under this
contract. Thfc work he expects to
be throi gh with by Sept. 1. when he
will tackle Twentieth street south of
Ninth a.ciinc. an undertaking he is
not anticipating with any decree :'
The Single Course on T eiily-foii-t li.
Speaking of Twenty-fourth street
this morning. Mr. Edwards said he
had ser ous misgivings as to the dur
ability of a single course pavement
on a thoroughfare which is so much
traveled. There is probably i:
street i i the three cities that is sub
jected to more traffic than Twenty
fourth, leading as it does from tin
viaduct to M.iline avenue, and over
which passes daily not only a vast
amount of local travel, but all thai
between Davenport and Moline.
The single course in these two
blocks," said Mr. Edwards, will
have as severe a practical test as
anvwlic re. and if it stands it here it
will an . where. For my own part I
look fo" the pavement to succumb to
the pressure and give out here til'M.
1 may be mistaken."
On the ot her st reel s where a single
course has been adopted, as is known,
the weight of travel will not lie as
great. and consequently t lie pavement
of thi characl er will doubtless serve
as good a purpose as if ;t were ilmi
bleeorrse. Apropos of the discus
sion of .-ingle .-nurse pavement, how
ever, i may be -aid that while in
Clintoii the other day. the local com
mittee made something of an inspec
tion (if the single course brick pav-
i . -
mg winch is lire onlv kMid thev have
there, and which Mayor Hughes said
was meeting all the ends of two
courses, arid some of it had been
down lour and live years. The peo
ple there regard one course of good
brick as good as two if underlaid
with the proper foundation.

An Kxrlt iliu: Itiilut way.
A team attached to one of I,. Week

excitii g runaway "on West Seven

Sears, Mr. Weekel's driver, had
driven across Market square and at
Second avenue was obliged io stop to
jiermi' an Elm street electric motor
to pas-. Sears, however, was indis
creet in attempting to cross the
tracks before the ear had gotten out
of the way. and the tongue caught
on the dash board of the ear and the
end w is snapped ofT. (he remainder
of the tongue dropping down between
the Ik rses, and they at once became
fren.i !, starting on a wild run down
Seven' eenth. The drivar was pow
erless to control them, but succeeded
in tuning them at First avenue arrd
avoiding the railroad tracks. In
making the turn, though, the wheels
of the wagon struck the curb and the
vehiel? was overturned. Mr. Sears
being thrown headlong into the
street lie quickly regained his feet
uninjured, and put after the horses,
which had broken loose and were
dashing west on First avenue. They
cut over into the Burlington railroad
vards and finally became separated,
one of them coming up town to Mar
ket square, where it was caught, t he
other being captured near the Mill
The wagon was found to be but
slightly damaged, and Mr. Weckel
can thank his lucky stars that he es
caped a more serious outcome.

CAUGHT ON THE CORNER.
Odd ThitiKH That Are Met by the Stroller
on His ItouniU. r-
Many have noticed during the past
few weeks an odd looking little man
dressed in the resemblance of clerical
garb hustling along the street as if
he might be hastening to the bedside
of some dying parishiner, or bent on
some other important mission of his
divine calling. The Stroller, stand
ing on a corner one evening not long
since, noticed the little man pass
along at his swinging gait and heard
some one at his elbow inquire of a
friend who the stranger was. '-Why
that's Father MeGugin." returned
the other. '-Haven't you ever seen
him Itefore? Why he's been here
some time. Most everyone who sees
him thinks he is a priest but he isn't
and his name isn't Father MeGugin
either. His right name is Gaughan
and lie is a tailor by trade, though
he is known the country over as
Father MeGugin on account of his
clean shaven face and the clerical
clothes that lie always wears. His
home is in Chicago, and to use a
slang expression, he is one of those
individuals you read about 'who
travels on his face.'' What I mean is
that his close resemblance to a priest
gets hini a half rate fare without ex
hibiting a clergyman's permit and he
travels all over the country in this
way for just half what you and I pay.
He has had many funny experiences
on the strength of his appearance in
his time, and being a thorough Irish
man he "an assume all the priest v
carriage and do it in a way that it
would take an unusually close observ
er to detect him from the genuine."
Did you ever sit in Spencer square
of an evening -ind listen to a session
of the Light Head club? But per
haps you don't know there is such a
thing. If you don't, then von are
away behind the times, for Bock Isl
and possesses just such an organiza
tion, and a strong one it is at that.
The club is principally composed of
members who have a constitutional
ailment that requires perfect rest and
quiet and who also have conscien
tious scruples against any movement
that will result in anything akin to
exertion. The principal qualification
necessary to gain admission to this
mystic circle of strong boys is to
wear tan shoes and look pleasant.
Many are the duties that this club
finds c:.l!od upon to look after, the
principal one. however, being the
entertainment of visitors of the oppo
site sex who happen to be in the city.
In this feature, it may be said, how
ever, that they are the double dis
tilled quint essence of perfection, and
if any young lady has ever visited
the city and gone home dissatisfied
with the attention she received from
tie- stronger sex. then the Light
Head- were either all sick or were
at tending Black Hawk Tower in a
body. The meetings of the club,
which are held nightly in the square,
are characterized by 1 heir intensit v,
am! even though the bovs niav not
contribute very largely to' the indus
trial wealth, they an: an ornament to
the city and that ought to be enough
for anvl'od v.
An uptown contractor who has
been absent about six weeks looking
after work in Texas is expected home
tomorrow night, but when he returns
he will not find his home just as it
was when he left it It is often said
that a little time works wonders and
in this case it seems to have been
true. The gentleman referred to
and his wife have always to all ap.
pcaranees lived happily, but a sud
den turn in affairs has taken place
and when he comes home he will lind
it deserted. Just w hat caused her to
leave her home is not dclinitelv
known and though all kindsof stories
are afloat as to the reason for her
strange action none of them are veri
fied. At any rate on last Mondav
she suddenly determined to visit the
World's fair, as she said, and to that
end disposed of a portion of her fur
niture at greatly reduced rate. her
sewing machine, easy chairs and
other articles going at a sacrifice.
Her curtains, carpets and some other
articles she took with her while
others still she left in the house.
Her effects were all packed up in
short order and moved from the
house. She stopped in at a neigh
bor's just before noon saying she was
going down town and would be back
after dinner. After dinner came and
she did not return, nor has she been
seen or heard of since. Her husband,
it is said, is entirely ignorant of the
facts and if so his borne coming will
certainly be a dismal one.

A SERIOUS ERKOIl.
Mrs. Mary Cahall Takes Medi-
cine in Overdose.
UNCONSCIOUS FE0M THE EFFECTS.
Found In an Alley In a Dazed Condi
tion, She is Taken to Her Home, Where
Oortors Attend Her She Fails to Ob
serve the Directions for Taking Medicine
to Relieve Her, With Alarming Results.
Mrs. Mary Cahall, a widow, living
with her son at 1303 Fifth avenue,
was found in an unconscious and
stupilied condition in the allev in
the rear of V. Il
residence on Fourth avenue, about
noon today, and the police were no
tified, Officer Ryan at once going
down and conducting the woman to
her home. Dr. Asay was summoned
and soon after Dr. Sala was
called in consultation. From the
latter it was learned that
the lady, who is addicted
to the use of morphine and opium
had called on him about 11 o'clock
this morning for treatment for
her nervous condition which was
the result of the use of mor
phine. Her family had forbid
den pharmacists to sell her the
drug, and she applied to Dr. Sala for
it. as she had done before. He de
clined to comply with her request,
but instead gave her a prescription
to ease her nerves. It consisted of
a solution of choloral hvdrate,
bromide of potasium and " water,
which was to be taken at the rate of
a teaspoonfu! one:; in three hours.
This would amount to live grains
each of the principal ingredients
every three hours, the ordinarv dose
being lu to 3.1 grains. The 'bottle,
which was lillcd at .-pcidel's drug
store in accordance with the pre
scription, contained 2 drams each
Took it all at a lnse.
The lady however, instead of fol
lowing the directions took the entire
bottle full at one dose, with the effect
as noted. How she got into the alley
is not known, though it is supposed
she took the medicine shortly after
getting it. and in a dazed condition
wandered, she knew not where.
The physicians administered anti
dotes and emetics, and also used a
stomach pump, but the woman is
still unconscious and her condition is
EASIER IN THE EAST.
Fiii-.iiK-ial Sirincency Letting up in N w
George C. Blakeslee, general sec
tary of the lioek Island Y. M. C. A.,
returned this morning from a 4
wceks' visit to his old home in Bing
hampton, . Y., taking in the
World's fair on the way. Mr.
Blakeslee was surprised to find that
there was no abatement in the tight
ness of money matters in Rock Isl
and as yet. Why. in the east."
said Mr. Blake.-le.'. they have g it
ten over the money panic entirely
and forgotten all about :. i niav av.
They experienc: i - :;i ! uea-in-ss a
few weeks ago. i:ut that has all di--appcarcd
now. and the further ea-t
you. go. you lind times and prospects
better. The money scare seems to
have moved like a wave, and follow
ing in its wake has ciinie the reac
tion of bet ter times."
The recent panic at Denver seems
to give the truth to Mr. Blakeslee's
theory that the money trouble is roll
ing westward, and that a return to
the normal condition of the money
market is steadily coining after. Let
us hope the wave of difficult v will
continue its westward wav until it
tumbles off into the Pacific ocean.
Impaled on uti lee Hook.
David Sharp, an employe of Mar
tin Weinburger the ice man, nu-t
with a frightful and exceedingly
painful accident on Thursday. In
jumping out of the ice wagon he wa
caught an an ice hook, hanging on
the wagon, which penetrated his left
side between the ribs. He was
caught in such a manner that he was
left dangling at the side of the wagon
unable to get loose, and enduring
the most excruciating pain. He was
lifted down and the ugly hook re
moved from his body. He was taken
to his home, 7VJ Fourth avenue,
where he was attended by Dr. Bern
hardt. He suffered considerably
from injuries, but it is thought will
get along all right.
