Ira H. St. Onge and Mrs. Agnes
Seott, two well-known Daveuporters,
perpetrated a pleasant surprise on
their friends yesterday by beisg mar
ried at St. Anthony's church, by Rev.
D. .1. Flannery. and leaving later on a
wedding trip to Chit-ago. It was a
pretty 6 oVloek wedding, with Mr.
and Mrs. J. P. Brennan ast the attend
ant, and it will be learned of by many
friends of the couple with much pleas
ure. Mr. t. Onge is connected with
the St. Onge store, and his wife is a
Davenport lady, formerly Miss Agnes
liynes and later Mrs. Clarence Scott.
S. A. Weaver, who has been held to
the grand jury for alleged threats and
extortion of money frcm L. K. Walk
er, the Princeton merchant, has filed
an action to recover the sum of $13,
000 from the Princeton capitalist for
the alleged alienation of his wife's af
fections. He .alleges as the grounds
for his action that in March. 194)4.
Walker had become intimate with his
wife. At that time he and his fam
ily of three children, the oldest being
10 years of age, resided on Walker's
property, which is known as the
"Beamer" farm, and it was there that
the alienation complained of occurred.

The investigation into the accounts
of S. F. Smith is snaking progress and
is keeping G. A. Mast working over
time, as he is putting in several hours
a day as well on his task of inspect
ing the book.- of the city officers. The
task of straightening Mr. Smith's ac
counts will be a long and complicated
one. Mortgages have been playing
hide and seek between the boxes of
the different estates for so long, that
tracing their devious path from the
date they were first entered in one of
the estates until they were finally
found in some other, or until they
disappeared on the way. is quite a
job! Mr. Smith, it has been found,
was an expert bookkeeper. He kept
a beautiful set of books, and he was
able to make them balance perfectly,
and those who have looked over his
transactions feel a growing admira
tion for the wonderful technique with
which he was able to carry along the
sadly complicated estates and conceal
a shortage until it had grown to $110,-
A compromise has been effected in
the case f Mrs. Emma Cornwall, wid
ow and administrator of the estate of
Lawrence Barry Cornwall, vs. the
Davenport Gaa & Electric company,
whereby the widow agrees to accept
the sum of $.".000 from the defendant

condition and should not be neglected. Few medicines act as
thoroughly, promptly and safely as Beecham's Tills. They are

There is no remedy quite as good as Beecham's Pill, not only to
