The order of retrench has gone

owners of ti e iron highways are dil
igently searching for means of meet

visable by Ir.rge manufacturing con

workmen are thrown out of employ

amused him. -'Just imagine us fel

'when we start for Omaha." The
newspaper sc -ap said: Engineer
Tom Clark, has conceived a meritor
ious device to be used by engineers
of fast trains in case of collisions.
He proposed that the knight of the
footboard be provided with an air
tight rubber suit which can be easily
inflated by attachment to the engi
neer's valve fir operating the air
brake. In ca:,e of sudden danger
this will be quickly filled with air at
a pressure of 0 jwunds to the square
inch, and when the wearer casts him
self off. should he fall down an em
bankment or into a field, he will suf
fer no harm beyond bounding 20 or
30 feet in the atr like a rubber ball
when he strikes the ground.

At 4:30 yesterday afternoon Sheriff
Jones of Scott 'county, took posses
sion of the store of Charles A. Meek,
dealer in fornishinggoods. furniture,
etc., at 3'2'2 Brady street, Davenport.
The foreclosure was made to satisfy
mortgages amounting to $7.0tH.
Later an assignment was made to M.
N. Richardson and Ira R. Tabor for
the benefit of all other creditors, sub
ject, of course, to the mortgages.

Meek was soon expecting to occupy
