Her Brother to Throws From Boad Cart by a Frightened Horse Unlnjared, bat She In Caught and Hauled Over the i rotted Five Miles, Causing a Horrible Death. Miss Mary Miller, a resident of Bowling township, five miles north of Preemption, met a horrible death abont 6:80 yesterday afternoon while crossing the railroad track near the latter place, being dragged behind a roaa cart to tier home, five miles distant, before the murderous course of the animal was stopped, when the umonunate woman's body was ex tricated, a ghastly mangled corpse. Cause of the Fatality. Miss Miller was returning from a visit in the vicinity in company with her brother Edward, when she met her untimely ending. Approaching me railroad track inst south of Ire- emption, the horse which Mr. Miller was driving became frightened at a passing hand car, and without warn ing gave a quick plunge and started to rnn away, throwing Mr. Miller over backwards to the ground unin jured. But his sister was less for tunate. In falling, her foot became fastened between the shaft and axle. sealing her awful fate. Down the road sped the frightened animal. with its helpless victim undergoing torturous death, within the sight of her brother, who was thrown some distance behind. The horse did not stop until reaching home, where a ghastly spectacle was presented, her ooay being extricated a terribly lac erated corpse. The Shocking News. The shocking news was immedi ately communicated to her brothers and 6ister living in this city, who went to the unfortunate woman s home in Bowling. Miss Miller was 29 years of age, and was keeping nouse tor her two brothers, tdward and Joseph, two well known farmers. who, together with Mrs. F. ftach- baur, Benedict and Gottlieb, of this city, and Leopold, John and Louis, 01 Colorado, survive her.

Johnston, James Martin, Frank Buncher and Warren L. Eddv, which returned a verdict that Mary Barbara Miller came to her death from the in juries of the accident. J he funeral will be held from the deceased's home, on the Monmouth road in Bowling township, at 10 o clock W cdncsdav morning. THAT BRIDGE PROJECT. The Lower One to be Hnllt Next Spring Beyond a Itonbt. The lower bridge project, to the prospect of the carrying out 01 which reference has been frequently made of late, under the purchase of the or iginal charter held by the tri-city capitalists, is practically assured, and there is no further doubt that it will be built early in the 8prinr. Mr, Blair, of St. Iaul, who represents the eastern capital interested id the mat ter, is busy with the preliminaries to be submitted for the final approval of congress, and it is anticipated that the lirst thing in the spring will witness the actual beginning 01 oitcr ations. Mr. Blair insists that there are no railroads directly interested in the present scheme, but that cer tain railroads arc expected to take advantage of it when completed. The Plana rrouoaed. The bridge proposed will be exclu sively for railroad purposes, will cost about 4M),o;0, and will stretch from the point below the plow works to the Davenport side. I he spans will lie 200 feet in length, the draw being 440 feet, with 200 feet opening on either side. Died for luty. The Davenport Democrat has the following account of the death of Miss Thekla Heimbcck of that city who is a sister of August Heimbeck of this city, and Einil Heimbcck, of Molinc: Very sad were the circn instances surrounding the death of Miss Thekla Heimbeck, daughter 01 Mr. and Mrs. Fred. Heimbeck, of this city, which occurred at 4:4o Saturday morning, Miss Heimbeck was only 27 years o age. She was a trained nurse, and was summoned to Preemption, 111 about three weeks ago to nurse som diphtheria patients. Last week she returned here, apparently in good health, ana tooK cnarge 01 another patient in Rock Island. Lntil tn day morning sne attenaea to ner uu ties as usual, but later in the day she succumbed to the dreadful rtis ease from which those she had cared for at Preemption had suffered. Her life was sacrificed to the duties of the calling to which she had dedi cated herself. Afraid of Pneamonla. Mrs. Catherine Black, of Le Roy, N. Y., took a severe cold. The phy sician feared pneumonia. She took one bottle of Parks1 Cough Syrup and says: "It acted like magic. Stopped my cough and I am perfectly well now.
