Susie Newt em. 17-year-old daughter
of .lames 15. Newton, of Springfield,
mysteriously disappeared from her
homo several days ago and the police
in several cities have been, asked to
search for her. A quarrel with her
sweetheart is said to have caused the
girl's flight from home, and many of
iter friends fear that she has com
mitted suicide. Mr. Newton, howev
er.'thinks his daughter is in Chicago.
The girl's sweetheart, Myron Long,
a fireman on the Wabash railroad,
jilted her. and thereafter she was
despondent, neglecting her usual
task of caring for the household.
Long and Miss Newton were school
mates. Their courtship was contin
ued until four months ago. Then
then: was a quarrel which resulted
in breaking olT tin- friendly relations.
Miss Newtfn objected to Long's nt
,tentii:ns to another young woman
and her objections resulted in the es
trangement. Presents were returned
and .apparently everything between
the young persons was at an end.
WlHlicii to lie Forclveit.
Since that time Miss Newton re
gretted her act. She wrote several
letters to Long, which disclosed the
fact that she wished to be forgiven.
Long received the last letter Fri
day in Springfield. He answered il
immediately and intimated that li
expected soon to marry Miss Essie
Crow, of Hock Island. He also said
that he was preparing to visit Miss
Crow at her home in the near future.
Shortly after Miss Newton received
this letter she left her father's
house. Friends met her as she walk
ed down the street, but saw her no

that they are engaged to he married,

Long says Miss Newton ilid not leave

HID.- FOR THE BRIDGE
Rock Island Merchants Take Up
Project Started by Hen-,
ry County. .
COST IS ESTIMATED AT $15,000
Moliue Prom lues to Share a Por
tion of the Kk
Rev. S. IL Weed, of Colona. was
present at the meeting ol the Retail
Merchants' association last evening
aud the session was devoted to con
sidering the proposition for a bridge
across Rock river to connect the
northwest portion of Henry county
with Rock Island county.
Rev. Weed explained the situation
from the standpoint of the Henry
county people who are desirous of
securing better means of access to
Rock Island and Moliue. Maps were
produced and it was shown that the
people of four townships across Rock
river desire to come this way to do
their heavy trading, being almost as
near to the twin cities as to Geneseo.
where they are forced to go part of
the time by the lack of facilities for
crossing the river. These four town
ships are Hanna. Edford, Western
Ttie I'liirm for Itridjr.
The exact location of the bridge is
immaterial to the people of Henry
county and there are three places be
ing discussed as available. One is
near the present ferry at Cleveland,
the other south of Rarstow, ami the
third below the. bridge of the Rock
Island road at Carbon Clitf. This,
however, is an after consideration, as
the first thing to be done is to get the
wherewith for the enterprise, which,
it is believed, will cost from $1(1,0(10
A mass meeting is to be held at the
Cleveland town hall this evening for
the purpose of crystalizing senti
ment on the subject and to name a
committee to cooperate with others
from Rock Island and Moliue.
Sentiment last night was heartily
in favor of the improvement and
there is no doubt that the Rock Isl
and merchants will do all in their
lower to encourage it. It is pointed
out that if the two counties do their
proportionate shares, together with
the amount that is being raised by
private subscription, the burden will
iiotbe heavy upon anyone. Those
who are actively canvassing the, situ-
ition have received much encourage
ment, from citizens in Rock Island
and Molinc. and the people of Henry
county living in the territory adja
cent are showing their interest with
substantial contributions to the fund

Generally ltelleveil In. ICnt IlaH Never Ks-
One of the most widely current and
inexplicable fallacies that are gener
illy believed is called to mind by the
coming or the Adam rorcpatign and
Sells Rrothers" . enormous shows
united. It is the silly twaddle about
big shows dividing and showing in
small cities and towns in different
sections of the country on the same
day and then coming together again
in the larger sities and showing as
one exliiuition. it is, as a matter 01
fact, one of the most absurd ideas in
the world, and persons ordinarillv
sane upon every otner sudjcct win
persist in believing that such things
are done, notwithstanding the fact
that it is absolutely so much without
foundation in fact that such a thin
has never even been once attempted
much less being done as a regular
custom. It would be just as easy to
cut a horse in two. and scmli.him up
two roads at one time and then when
main road is 'reached put him to
gether again. It is simply a physic
al impossibility for such shows to be
first divided and then united, and
keep the public in ignorance of it
Any man who could invent a system
that would make such a thing "pos
sible would have a fortune. It never
has been done, it is not done nor will
it, in all human probability, ever be
done by those who show or any oth
ers. So, when the Adam For.epaugh
and Sells Rrothcrs" shows come here
they will be exactly the same as they
were in New York, llrookiyn, Phila
delphia and all the cities they have
visited this season, an.l if anyone
wants to gamble on it there is no
possible chance of losing any money
wagered .n that proposition, no mat
