Clerk's Mishap at Kicking the Bucket
A Barber Given Hi On Medietas.
In a Bock Island business house
there dwells a Thomas kitten,
which, nnlike others of its race,
has never been obliged to sere
nade from house to house dur
during the moonlight wintry even
ings, perching itself on the back-yard
fence or under a bedroom window
sending forth doleful, pitiful and
piercing cries with which it seeks to
awaken someone with a tender heart,
who will, through sympathy, give
a night's lodging to the wander
ing feline. Nay. this kitten is
no L'oxeyite. "it walks on the
grass and on the glass (show-case)
without molestation. It has not
only a long pedigree, but a title,
which if authentic, makes it a de
scendent of the batch of fine-haired
cats which King Henry V possessed.
The present owner ported it
sometime ago, and on its arrival it
had every courtesy shown it. His
felineship was admired by frequent
ers of the store, and was the pride of
the owner. It is a proud genteel
sat; one that would make friends
rapidly; one that was not only use
ful, but ornamental, in that it would
help decorate the window during the
day and banish the slippery tailed
vermin at night. It is an alTection
ate cat, much admired by its master,
who would take it in his arms, rub
bis chin in its wool and hold cate
gorical conversations with it. The
cat was taken suddenly ill a little
over a week ago, and its condition
became very alarming. Everything
that medical science could adminis
ter with the hope of relief was ap
plied both ontard!y and inwardly to
the suffering cat, which seemed to
be undergoing terrible agony. Car

but without avail. One thing
positive the cat could not exist
very long under the circumstances,
and when the storekeeper started for
home one night after staving up un
til a late hour with his feline com
panion, he was convinced that death
was the onlv relief. On arriving at
his place of business next morning.
the cat could not be found. Days
passed, but no tidings of the silken
furred animal, whose disappearance
grieved the storekeeper verv much.
The other morning while seated in
the front of his store smoking his
usual Havanna and gazing into
space, gentle footsteps were heard
approaching on the show case behind
bim. Looking around, the icline was
seen strolling in the direction of its
master with tail erect, mustache
curled and a smile of apparent con
tentment in its race. He jumped np
and received the 1. nomas with open
arms with as much affection and jov
as if a long-lost or supposed-to-be-dead
brother had turned up. He is

curative powers, resorted to nature's
remedies and went rusticating lor a

CALLING THE MEETING.
President Kent and the Western Rase Bull
Secretary McIIugh, of the Rock
Island-Moline base ball club, has a
letter and a telegram from President
Kent, of the Western Base Ball asso
ciation, which indicate that while he
is seeking to have a meeting of the
Western Base Ball association to act
on Rock Island's plea for hearing on
its shameful expulsion, there is a
strong protest from many 01 the
clubs. As this spirit merely shows a
conspiracy, a reckless disregard for
fairness toward one of the original
