Since then he had failed gradually, al though he had exhibited remarkable vitality and it has been a surprise to physicians that he lingered so long, Hiograohlral. Dr. Truesdale' death witnesses the going out of a life of exceptional use fulness. Horn at Austin lown. Ohio, Oct. 2, 1S22, he was left an or phan at an early age. He educated himself academically and also in his chosen profession of medicine, grad uating from Hudson college, cievc land. Ohio, in 118. In 1849 he crossed the plains to California, re- mairiug there about two years, sub sequently and in lf51 settling in Rock Island, where he had resided since. He came here upon the ad vice of Dr. S. C. riummer, who had been a classmate at Cleveland, the two graduating together from the tirst class sent out by the institu tion. Dr. Plummer had preceded him here and established a lucrative practice, and the two formed a part nership, which existed for some time after Dr. Iruesdale s arrival. While devoted to. and widely known for his learning and skill in his profession, he was often lion. red politically, receiving important com missions under I'resident Lincoln; was elected mayor of Rock Island in 1860-01 and in 18(j(5-C7, and was a member of the constitutional con ventinn of 180. in 182 be was a candidate for congress tu the liberal republican ticket, but was defeated by the late Capt. J. i. Hawiey Other honors have been tendered him. but were declined. He was more especially known and loved for the sweetness of his nature and the unselfishness with which he sought to alleviate the sufferings of humanity. To him the rich and the poor, the high and the low were one and the same, to each he devoted his best thought, energies and skill. He stood at the head of his profession and had been for years surgeon for the Keck Island and at. Louis divis ion of the C, IS. & Q. railroad. In a business way he was interested as a stockholder in the Rock Island l'low company. THE FAMILY. A Widow and Four Children Survive Ulm.

The death of Dr. Truesdale will be a source of personal sorrow to many hearts. Not only in his professional missions bad he endeared himself in so large a number of homes, but in the qualities of his nature which were so prominent, his great-heart edness, his high-mindedness, his depth of character, bad made him one of the most esteemed and be loved of our people, and the grief and regret that is felt over his demise is as genuine as it is far-reaching. Ia all that pertained to public policy, whether national, or state, or local, one always knew where Dr. Trues dale stood, and his counsel and co operation were always cheerfully given, always soun.t, always right. He was one of those who are looked np to, regarded by all as one of the substantial men of the community. Yet. pronounced as was always his position at all times and on all occa sion. 01 moment, ne naa not an enemy o ' the world, and no matter how widely others might have .differed from him in views, he commanded re port, and the force of his influence was felt in every good work, in every noble deed, in all pertaining to the advancement of Rock Island, and the uplifting and betterment of his fel low men. Trtbites it Respect. The medical fraternity of Rck Island held a -meeting at the Rock land Sanitarium yesterday after noon and adopted a resolution of re spect and sympathy, which was at onee telegraphed to Mrs. Truesdale, at Minneapolis, and appointed a com mittee to notify the doctors of Davenport and Moline of Dr. Trues- dale's death. Another meeting will be held tonight. Mayor Knox this afternoon issued proclamation inviting the council and all ex-mavors to attend the funeral tomorrow morning. WITH THEIR WILLOWS. The Doctor's Hoy Whip the Ottnmaras to a, Standstill. The Ottumwas were kept busy yesterday dodging the hogskin bul lets from the hiekoriesof the doctors' bovs. The visitors saw the gloom v clouds of defeat begin to gather in the third inning, when with all the sacks inhabited, that anburn-cran- iumed gentleman who takes care of the center garden for Mr. Sage, swung on the sphere with a terrific force, dispatching it heavenward until it looked like a pea. It took a tumble by the time three men had crossed tlje rubber, and in attempt ing to land it before it struck terra tirma Centerliclder Pedros ran back ward colliding with the embankment near the rear fence and turned a series of somersaults, and when all the smoke cleared King Keith was na third. That was only the beginning of a royal festival of hickory swing ing, the locals securing live runs in the third, and continued their good work until the sixth. Here they goosegged and kept that up also until the ninth. Hob kmmcrk, with last season's Jacksonville team, did the pitching lor Sage, and he had good speed and control. The Ottumwas gave a nice exhibition, but they were outclassed in batting and their twirlcr, Wcoton, was a picnic Nevertheless it was an interesting contest, lull of good points and wit nessed by a good-sized crowd. Here is the story of Ottumwa's downfall: TKt C1TV OTTCMWl R H!"f E' K H PO A ill.n're ir s i 0 Hnrris. 3h. 1 iOsrrol'. If. 1 TViUoj. c.f 1 OOrliip. rf.. O O Connors, c I It l'rince.

I itipire Lyons. Club Ame Chanced . The local management decided this morning to change the name of the club to Kock Island, abandoning the title. Tri-Cities, entirely. This is due to the fact that Davenport has failed to contribute to the support of the club, or to carry out any part of its agreement at the opening of the season, and many patrons of the game here have felt that as long as Rock Is'and was carrying the club.it should have the name as well as the burden. When the announce ment was made, an enthusiast offered at once to be one of 2 to buy new uniforms, and others offered to dou ble their subscriptions. With these inducements and the further possi b lily of going into the Western as sociation, a committee representing the club which will be around to morrow tor additional aid to carry the club on, should meet with abun dant encouragement.

Reams, the last of the Rock Island contingent that went to Mad ison to win for Rock Island the head oiliccs of the Modern Woodmen, re turned home over the Milwaukee at 9:'Jo Saturday evening. They were met at the depot by a number of representative citizens and roy ally greeted. J. A. Wilson. of Rural, left the train at Fulton and John 11. Liphardt at Port Byron, Mr. Wilson arriving in town this morning. Theo gentlemen remained long enough to be instrumental in having the the amount for the Woodmen building in Rock Island fixed at 30, 000, as conveyed by Saturday's Argus dispatches, which amount is double that voted by the Omaha meeting two years ago. It is also believed the board of directors will insist on paving a portion of the cost of the lot. If this is so a suffi cient amount of the subscriptions made should be placed in the hands of President Carse, of the Improve ment association, and Mayor Knox, for legal services in closing up the matter of bringing the ollices here. and this matter should be placed in the hands of William Jackson, who so far out of the public spirit of his nature has given the Woodmen the benefit of his professional services and energy gratis, but what further steps are necessary should be paid for. It is doubtful it Mr. Jackson would ask remuneration str expect it, hut he should have it nevertheless from this on, and he should be given full power to act, as far as attorney is concerned, and witu l resident Carse and the local Woodmen cont- mittee, of which Mayor Knox is the head, the matter can be relied upon to be pushed as rapidly as may be possible. The Closing Prorcedlairs. During the closing proceedings of the head camp the salaries of the head consul and head clerk were fixed at $3,Gi0 a year: head banker. $2,500: directors, $ 10 a day and ex penses iu attending meetings, and auditors Is? a day and expenses. The tiunilier of head physicians was in creased to live; good fellowship camps were authorized in excepted territory, they to have all rights ex- ,cept taking in new members; the States of Ohio anil Indiana were added to the jurisdiction; . the resolution authorizing the directors to call a special meeting of the head camp in Illinois, if needed, in conscquenco of any obstruction in removing the head office to Rock Isl and was adopted. The Head onteera. liielistor head oluccrs elected is as follows: Head Consul W. A. Xorthcott. Head Adviser Benjamin D. Smith Head Clerk C. W. Hawcs. Head Banker A. H. Hollister. Head Physicians R. E.
