All the railroads running into Chi

special and extensive arrangements
for the accommodation of the rush
to the fair city that is expected to
characterize the next few days, in
consequence of the Chicago day cele

regular equipment of passenger
trains, for two specials, which will

at i',")l.r Sixth avenue with his parents.
Yesterday afternoon he was in the
Rock Island railroad yards near the
depot and was riding on the switch
engine, which backed down to couple
on to some cars, and as they bumped
together Kntlcr was thrown between
the rails under the cars, .but fell in
such a manner that the wheels of the
box car pushed his head off the rails.
The resulting injuries are painful in
the extreme, and consist of a cut in
the head and one three or four inches
long on the right arm. but the es
cape from something more shocking
is truly marvelous.

The sawing season in Rock Island
is practically wound up, the mills
shutting down nearly two months in
advance of the usual time. This is
due to the dull market consequent
upon I he stringent condition in
money matters through which the
country lias passed. The mills of
Weyerhanser & Denkmann here and
iu Davenport suspended two weeks
ago. and the mills of the Rock Island
Lumber company w ill not run later
than next Tuesday. The mill and
lumber com panics do not report a sat
isfactory season, nor do they feel
that prospects arc any too bright
just now. "We are only hoping tor
the best," said 1". C. Denkmann this
morning, "but we have no more idea
at the present moment when next
season will open than the man in the
moon. We are well stocked up and
the market must brighten considera
bly to relieve us of goods in the
The Sea sou's Cut .
The season's cut at the lower mill
and the mill in Davenport, also
owned and operated by Weyerhanser

tMiii feet of lumber, which is 7.000
feet less than last year, and 15,01 M)
feet short of what the output would
have been had the mills run until the
middle of November as originally
contemplated. The cut in other ma
terials amounted to the following:
Of the cut of the two mills, fully

A. M. i:iair r.rought I ron. Omaha Here
The Omaha Bee of Thursday morn
ing contained the following:
A. M. Blair, the crazy man from
Rock Island. 111., who labors under
the impression that he has enough
moi ey to pay off the national debt,
and who a few days ago drew a
check for 50.ooo.0o'o in payment for
a glass of water, is still in the coun
ty jail, and is making the officers and
inmates a lot of trouble. Tuesday
night he conceived the idea that it
was the proper thing to take the
hearts out of the inmates of the in
stitution, clean them and put them
back in place. As none o.' the pris
oners would submit to thejoperation.
Blair grew angry and declared that
he would kill the whole onttit. He
became so obstreperous that he had
to be put in a straight jacket and
strapped to a bunk, where he re
mained during the night, keeping
everybody awake by his wild screams.
Blair at one time resided in Omaha
and operated a saloon, hut that was
years ago. and since then he has lived
in Rock Island, where his family is
Ilrought to KtM-k Island.
Sheriff Bennett, of Omaha, brought
Blair to Rock Islaud last night and
lodged him in the police sta
tion. Blair is undoubtedly a
raving maniac, and talks in
coherently and in a rambling sort of
a way. Chief Sexton put in most of
the day looking up Blair's family, as
the city directory contains no one by
his name. The chief late this after
noon ascertained that Blair had been
a hrakeman on the Rock Island road
and that his family reside on Thirty
fifth street, near Molinc avenue.
Officer Rrunnan notified her of her
husband's condition, and she visited
him at police headquarters.
