bat that it shows a lack of training

The main evidence ot lack of train

instances referred to was painful-to
anyone accustomed to aeeing the
operations of a well operated depart

a demonstration of the efficienov that
oan be attained in this respect. To
be sure Bock Island haa not a hoist
ing apparatus ot the most modern
invention, yet it ia possible through
practice to attain wonderful alacrity,
both in raising the ladders and in
mounting them. Where a paid de
partment is maintained the people
are accustomed to see this. The Ab

who informed Begalka that his farm
waa 12 acres shy.
Mrs. Begalke waa very mooh un
nerved on hearing this, it is said, and
often upbraided her husband about
hie shortsightedness. They had a
quarrel on the evening of Feb. 16, so
it is said. Tha following morning
he started ont afoot to tha place of a
inena in Henry eounty, where no

He took along $160. Ho had $200

uvea near Book river bridge, aaya
ahe aaw a maa crossing tho bridge

did not recognize him.
The theory of suioide haa now been
raised. There was a large air hole
in Book river near tha bridge at tha
time of Begalke's disappearance, aad
some have been frank enough to aay
that he jumped into It. There haa
been talk of foul play, bat the suicide
tneory is more generally accepted.
