Huddled upon an old dilapidated- looking couch in a barn at 2GU9 Fifth-and-a-half avenue, was found the dead body of Alphous Popcr, about 7 o'clock last evening by Aug ust Mortier. who conducts a board ing house at the above number. The unfortunate man had bcs;n loitering about the place for several davs in a .. - . .... 1 -., . iissipated condition, ana wiinout linances, prevailing upon the people to furnish him with a place to sleep. This was refused him. but he was permitted to sleep in the outbuild ing, where he was discovered dead by Mortier last night. Ihe deceased was a io'gian, un married and about 55 vears of age. From information received from ac quaintances of his, Foper had resided in Kock island atout a vear, uuriug which time he followed the vocatioa of laborer, while recently having driven a team for Saloonkeeper Auers, Discharged for Drinking. Poper was emploved about two months by Auers, when his love for intoxicating beverages began to in terfere with his duties, and shortly before the Fourth he was given to understand tht hi services were no lonirer required. The fact of his being out of employmeni.ni appears, made him despondent.' Liquor in duljrence was resorted to as an agon cy for banishing the thought of fu ture prospects, ana tne consequence was a iuick disappearance 01 wuai- ever little earnings ho might have possessed. While he was not always under the influence of intoxicants, his former excessive habits, cou pled with apparent worry, began to show its dissipatiiTg. effect, and heavy drinking would shatter him very noticeably physically. nday he "appeared at the Mortier house apparently under tne lnuuence 01 liquor, untsoucrcu up.ana yesieruay. according to Mortier, displayed 110 evidence of having been drinking. but he appeared to be troubled with cramps 111 his liauits. , Mortier iook him into tne House ana cave mm eatables and savs he soon became re lieved from the cramp. Late in the afternoon Poper, seemingly weak, re paired to the barn, where he had made a practice of sleeping, and laid down ou an old lounge. About a o'clock a cup of tea was given him then he was left alone. When n-g!il came, Mortier, being somowhat fear ful of having anyone sleep in the outbuilding during tho night, went out to arouse Popcr. He V Dead. Poper had expired. Mortier sum moned Dr. Hollowbuiii, and the cor oner was notilied. The phvsician in examining the body, detected no evidence of violence or self-destruction, and pronounced death as due to an attack of heart trouble. Coroner Hawes conducted au in quest over the remains, which were taken to an adjoining nousc. 1110 jury, G. A. Johnson, J. K. Urandon burg, Edward Wilcox, George Long. George Schneider and John Surnian, returned a verdict in accordance with the physician's testimony. MOLINE M AN'S DKSPKKATE ATTEMPT.

Last evening he" wandered away from his home, ostensibly for the purpose of taking a stroll. "When a short dis tance from tho water power he met a fellow countryman, who inquired his destination, noticing Tilleuian's ex citable and seemingly insane actions.' The latter said he intended boarding a street car for some point. Suspec ting something wrong. Tilleman's Irieud watched him. 11c proceeded straight for the Moline bridge, from which he jumped into the river without faltering a mo ment. As the water is not very deep at this point Tilleman's friend hurried after him and jumped in with the intention of saving him. A struggle ensued, in which Tille man almost succeeded in strangling bis rescuer. The arrival of the po lice and others attracted by the cries, saved both men. It was necessary to bind Tilleman hand and foot be fore he could be removed from the shore, where he fought the police and assistants desperately. He's a Wonder. Charles Adams, son of Caal Adams of St. Mary's school, and soda water dispenser at the Harper house phar macy, is exciting the wonder- of his friends by the exhibition of the mar. velons superhuman gifts he pos sesses. He claims it is muscular magnetism, but whatever it is be is capable of performing tricks and feats that the great Hermann would envy him in. His power seems to be more in the line of mind or muscular read ing, however, than the magician's art.

BATTLE WITH THE WAVES (Several Llvi Almitat l'eil.U Durlnc Trs- terday's Blow. That the river is not being searched for the bodies of several men who were precipitated into the Missis sippi during yesterday afternoons high wind, is almost a miracle, as they would have perished in the waves but for' the elements having carried the crafts to which thcywere cling ing over onto a sand-lar at tne loot of the government islam!. Two skiffs, one containing David To bio, John Magce and Hugh Con wel and another Thomas Hughes. John Halov and Joseph Kosenlield started across the river to Davenport iti'thc afternoon jut as the cloud of the approaching storm were gather. i:ig. The lirst crowd landed safely on the other side before the elements became cyclonic. But the latter party was in the middle of the stream, when the craft was struck by the waves and gradually began to till with water. Help Signal Sounded. Realizing the serious predicament of the men in the sinking boat, the signal for help was sounded from the draw pier. This attracted the at tention of the crew which had landed on tUj other side, and two men, John Mageeand David Tobin, started to the rescue But before they reached their companions their boat also upset, and the live men were clinging to the craft They re maiccd in the water fully au hour, but no one came to their rescue. The winds commenced to blow from the northwest and this alone saved them, as it landed the boats against a and-bar at the foot of the island, or the whole party would have other wise drowned, all being about ex hausted when it was reached. Somo of the men lost amounts of money .and other clothes. It was currently reported that a woman was with the party, and while she with the others was saved, her name cannot be ascertained. An Eveolnc Blaze. The department was summoned to the vicinity of Sixth street and Fourth avenue about 9 o'clock last evening, where the story-and-a-half frame cottage of William Sehnert, at 417 Sixth street, occupied by M.
