ELECTION PASSING OFF
QUIETLY IN THE COUNTY
The prevailing weather today has
not been such as to stimulate inter
est in the election, and while there is
an apparent indifference on the. sur
face throughout the city, yet the vote
that is going in does not denote that
the first duty of the American citizen
today is being entirely neglected in
Considerable scratching is being
done, and the outlook is that Con
Donovan will run ahead of Ileider for
sheriff in Iiock Island as well as
throughout the county, and will hold
the republican candidate down in Mo
line into the bargain. In fact the pre
diction is as freely made among re
publicans as democrats that Donovan
will be the next sheriff of this county.
The indications are also favorable to
the election of (Jeorge W. Ilttnry as
county" treasurer. y- "
On the question of minority repre
sentative, democrats in Kock Island
are as a rule disregarding the advice
of the Moore faction to bolt and are
voting the ticket straight.
lleturns of the election, locally
speaking as well as all over the coun
try, will be received at The Argus of
fice as usual this evening.

through Marseilles last night about
7:30 o'clock, will probably never fully

At the rate of 50 miles an hour the
train leaped over a broken rail just
as it passed the station, and a score
of persons stood by exjweting every
second to see the cars leave the track
and pile up. The broken place in the
rail was over a foot long, and the
heavy wheels leaped the rpace with
terrific jolts. Section men -discovered
the broken rail just before the train
was due, and were repairing it when
the train showed up over a hill. Some
of the spikes hail been pulled out.
There was a delay in flagging the
train, which usually vent through
Marseilles at about 60 miles an hour.
The engineer apparently did not heed
trie signals until almost on the spot
where the broken rail was being re
paired. An attempt wfts uuid- ic

DR. RANSEEN TO MANAGE
THE ATJGTJSTANA HOSPITAL
Dr. M. C. Ranseen has accepted the
management of Augustana hospital
and will assume his duties Jan. 1.
Rev. II. O. IJnderblad has resigned
this position and has received a call
to the pulpit in Dnliith, Minn. A farer
well reception was tendered him by
the attendants at the hospital and a
token of remeinbrnnce was present
ed him. Rev. G. Peters of Rockford
has been appointed chaplain of the
hospital. Dr. Ranseen is devoting his
time to the hospital to become famil

of these cities have offered $200,000

cash subscription will be increased

A child of Mrs. George T. Henson,
when getting his usual Saturday
night bath, stepped back against a
hot stove, which burned him severely.
The child was in g'reat agony and his
mother could do nothing to pacify
him. Remembering that she had a
bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Halm in
the house, she thought she would try
it. In less than half an hour after
applying it the child was quiet and
