Seymour Peterson, the Eleventh street flagman, owes his life to one of those miraculous escapes that occur once in a while. Strange to say, he was struck by the Rock Island passen ger train N'o. 20, due here at 6:23 a. m.. but only sustained a painful bruise of the hip and leg. Mr. Peterson was busily engaged in removing the weights from the gates, when his attention was atracted by a westbound freight train, but he did not see the eastbound pas senger train. Mr. Peterson was stand ing on the eastbound track, but at this point the tracks curve so that the en gineer could not see Peterson in time to save him from an accident. Mr. Pe terson was struck squarely by the pilot and hurled in the air. He was taken to his home at. 4H; Eleventh street, where it is thought he will soon re cover unless he has sustained internal inj!ries. which is not very probable. Vorwaerts Clhb Elects Officers.

( Members of the Retail Merchants' as sociation have decided to hold their annual outing this year at Campbell's 'island. The date will be fixed for some day late in July or early in August. The proposition of a railroad excursion and a boat excursion were both up for consideration. The railroad ride was out of the question because of former experience and lack of support, and the boat ride was favored could a steamer approach Moline. but the mem bers were not disposed to take the street car ride to the landing in Rock Island before and after the trip on the water. A good old-fashioned basket picnic with games for the children and dancing in the evening was decided upon for Campbells island, and the entertainment committee will go ahead with the work of arrangement.

Dr. Homer Odell Strosnyder, of Dav enport, and Miss Madeleane Borland Hagny, of Keokuk, were married Tuesday at that city at the home of the bride's mother, Mrs. S. Hagny, Rev. W. C. Williamson, of the United Pres byterian church, of Burlington, per forming the ceremony in the presence of the family and a few close friends. The young couple will reside in Dav enport. Probably Local Man. Thies Wilckens. a brother-in?law of Fred Hass. called upon the police yes terday afternoon and asked that the disappearance of his kinsman be inves tigated. He fears the Oquawka floater is Fred Hass. who has been missing from his boarding place at the Koester hotel on Scott street since the middle of April. Mr. Hass was a member of Blackhawk Sick Relief society and had been employed at Bettendorf in the car shops. He drew his last pay on March 14, and alter having been ill for sev eral weeks he began to act queerly. The similarity between the two names "Fred Hass" and "F. Hais," more so because both are very similar when written in German, together with, the word "Blackhawk" written on the memorandum book, makes Mr. Wilck en believe that his kinsman is none but the body found at Oquawka. Fred Hass was also 45 years of age, the same as the probable age of the body. He had light hair, sparsely crowning his head, and a heavy sandy mustache. Buys Big Engine.
