Because he showed a kindly interest
in an old man, Fred Billings, of Ster
ling, formerly of Marinette. Wis., is to
dar richer by over ttSuOOO. willed to
him by Peter Keller, a miser, who died
recently at his home in Sterling, of
rheumatism. Fred Billings is employed
by the Sterling. Dixon & Eastern Elec
trie railway as a freight steam engin
eer. He arrived in Sterling about two
months ago from Marinette where be
was employed by Mr. Higgins. He had
much difficulty in securing a desirable
house for himself and family, and after
much search he made a proposition to
Mr. Keller, who has for many years
lived the life of a recluse, that he rent
his house. The agreement was that
Mr. Billings was to have his house rent
free, and in return he was to take care
of Mr. Keller. The old man had been
living alone and the place was dirty
and run down. Mr. Billings had the
place repapered, cleaned it up, and did
much work about the preini.-es. He
also showed Mr. Keller much atten
tion. This kindness appealed to the
old man. ami three weeks ago he made
his will. In his will he left everything
to Mr. Billings, a man be had known
but a few months, but who had kind
ness and cheer to give to others.
BARSUM & BAILEY PARADE
IB SAID TO BE MARVELOUS
The parade of the Barnum & Bailey
greatest show on earth is this year
said to be superb and most marvelous.
It contains many novel features of a
high educational character which are
of great value to every child. The
inaugural parade will take place about
10 o'clock a. m., in all cities in which
the great show will exhibit.
It will be a trial to all persons, tint
especially to the little folks, to see the
novel features specially designed for
this stupendous and snbstanti.il affair.
The word novel is used advisedly. For
there are L'O of the most elegant and
costly floats and triumphal chariots
ever devised. They also contain many
tableaux vivants, the figures correct
ly costumed in the national dress of
nearly all the nations on earth, while
the teams of splendid horses attached
to them are accompanied by outrid
ers, similarly attired, representing
some special uniform of the nations.
One of these huge floats requires a
team of 40 elegantly matched horses
and is driven hy one man. Besides
these there will be many elephants,
camels. Roman racing chariots of the
same character as those used in the
days of Pharaoh, mounted cavaliers,
ladies, and performers, displays of
open dens of wild animals, carved
golden cages of rare beasts, allegorical
hariot s illustrating children's fairy
tales, nursery rhymes and fables, and
a myriad new features never seen
In a parade or anywhere else. For
with the usual disregard of expense
invariably characterizing the Barnum
& Bailey show, they secured the best
architects, artists and designers to
construct an absolutely new parade
for the pleasure of the people to sig
nalise the home-coming of the show
from its triumphal tour of the world.
Tin- following brief index is more
eloquent in telling the story of this
wonderful and costly pageant than
anything that can be written of it.
and will also be found of great serv
ice to many who may wish to know
USt what the allegorical floats repre
sent, as well as indicating the charac

Tank With Water In si
l: rnlDK-
George Mixter, superintendent at
Deere & Co.. Moline, is suffering un
told agony and will .be unable to ful
fill his duties tor some time, as the re
sult of an ac cident which occurred in
this city last evening. The accident
was a most peculiar one. ami tine that
most people would not have expected
to occur.
Mr. Mixter had been out in his auto
mobile, and the water in the cooling
tank had run low, which of course re
sulted in the tank becoming charged
with steam, and a high pressure of
steam at that.
When Mr. Mixter reached the water
ing trough just below the street car
barn on Fifth avenue, he decided-to
fill the tank. When he took off the
cap for this purpose there was a rush
of steam, which went into his face
Vith terrific force, scalding the face
badly.
Henri I'lneeri in ll::nriiiKe.
He was given surgical attention and
his head bandaged in such manner
that only two peep holes and a breath
ing hole were allowed.
It is expected that the skin will
peel from the face and that it will be
some time before Mr. Mister's lace
presents its normal appearance.
NOTHING YET HEARD FROM
TAMPIC0 SCHOOL TEACHER
As yet no light has been thrown on
the mystery surrounding the disap
pearance of F. N. Saekett, principal
of the public school at Tainnico. who
Went to Fulton June (i to meet an in
surance agent, and who went to Clin
ton the next day and disappeared
completely. The police have made dil-
gent inquiries, but have failed to get
any trace of the missing man.
Chief of Police Kundgren. of Clin
ton, has received a letter from J. N.
Nattrass, The Dubuque insurance man
man who was met at Fulton. The Du
buque man stated in his letter that he
had no knowledge of the whereabouts
of Saekett. The latter was to meet
him in Fulton .lime 12, be said. Ku
dosed was a letter which Sacked had
written to Nattrass the 7th of June. In
it the man who is now missing stated
that he thought the following Monday
would lie a good day for them to meet
at Fulton, where they could go to Al
bany together. Hncketf having asked
for an agency in Ihe insurance com
pany which Nattrass represents. The
insurance man did not go to Fulton,
and not heard anything from Saekett
since.
The Clinton police, who arc familiar
with the facts in Ihe case, are of
the opinion that Saekett is suffering
witli mental aberration, and is wan
dering about in that condition, per
haps far away by this time. Efforts
to locate him will be continued.

GENE Si: 0 ISSTITTJTE MUST
HAVE LOCAL HELP TO EXPAND
Rev. W. S. Marquis, of this city, and
Mr. Thompson, of Geneseo. the com
mittee of the board of trustees of the
Geneseo Collegiate institute who went
to Now York to see what help could be
secured from the general church board
toward raising the grade of the insti
tute to that of a college, met with the
other trustees in Gcncsco Friday even
ing and reported upon the success pf
their mission.
At the recent meeting of the Gen
eral Assembly of the Presbyterian
church of the United States, the col
lege board was entirely reorganized,
new men appointed and the headqaar
quarters from Chicago to New York.
Furthermore, the general assenihh
directed this board to abandon all
Presbyterian academics in the United
States for the obvious reason that the
rapid and universal development ol
high schools rendered the academies
much less necessary than in previous
ytars. The church at large has re
solved to throw its support to colleges
only. This movement is in direct op
position to the Illinois plan which pro
posed to endow academies as well as
colleges.
The trustees of C,. C. I. were quick to
see that this action of the general as
sembiy would make it Impossible to
develop the institute along the lines
they had planned: so they decided to
confer with the board to see whether
help could be secured to reorganize the
inst it ill e as a college.
The G. C. I. trustees estimated that
in order to reorganize as a collage, it
would be necessary to secure sufficient
funds to erect a new building at a
cost of not less than ?2..."mi and to
Increase the present endowment by at
least 150,000. Tins means that 875.000
would be a minimum amount neces-
sarv to place a college on a sale run
ning basis. It was decided to make an
effort to secure financial assistance
from the people of (ieneseo and vicin
ity, without whieb the project will
probably be abandoned.
ROCK RIVER MAY BREAK
TWO RECORDS THIS YEAR
A few days ago word was received
from Dixon that Rock river at that
city had reached the lowest point
known for -in years and was steadily
receding, every morning showed a
bank of moist black earth from which
Ihe water had receded during the
night.
The river has been lowering steadily
in Rockford, says the Rockford Star,
hut it is only within a short time that
it has been particularly noticeable. It
will only be a matter of a a day or
two before the results at Dixon will be
experienced here. Concerning the con
dition of the river the Star continues:
"Every year at this time the river
has been low caused from lack of rain
and the drying up of the springs, but
this year the water has been good.
The manufacturers on the water pow
er say that it has held up to a high
mark longer than usual and it was
only two or three weeks ago they be
gan to realize the time for trouble in
that direction had arrived.
"The river this spring reached flu
highest water mark known in 20 years
and today it Is so low in places the
steamers are unable to land at the
usual places. At Love's park landing
is impossible until a pier is built and
this is only one of many instances
along the river."
