Called to Feed Chickens. The ca
reer of Humane Officer George Eilnian
is a varied one. He hurries from the
case of a neglected child to look af;er
a crippled horse. Thursday, v!un ho
was putting the finishing touches on
his article protesting against the over
head check rein, he received a tele
phone message to come to Betten lorf
to look into a case of starving chick
ens. He responded and found the case
as reported. A fine lot of chicken.-;,
between 20 and CO old ones and about
40 young chicks were in great need o
food and drink. The first move of the
humane officer was to buy a quarter's
worth of fetd, and the way the chick
ens cleared it up was a caution. Then
he began to investigate, and discov
ered that the chickens were the pro
erty of William Geesaman, against
whom Mary J. Geesaman has begun ac
tion for divorce. Then the officer be
gan to see the game. Geesaman had
not fed his chickens because the court
had issued an injunction against his
visiting the place. Mr. Kllman came
to Davenport and hunted up Mr. Geesa
man. The owner of the chickens said
he wanted to take care of them, but
could not do so as the court had for
bidden his presence on the place. He
paid back the quarter that the officer
had paid for the chicken feed, and de
dared to tne office
been sent with the intent to get him.

Mad Dog Scare. There was a mad
dog scare on upper Harrison street
Thursday evening which created a
great sensation and brought the entire
neighlorhcod out with their revolvers
and shotguns in search of the canine.
The excitement was started when the
dog in question began to act strangely
and bit little Viola Doyle, a ."-year-old
child, on the arm. The dog was fright
ened away and made its escape before
it could be shot. A large number of
peeple chased after the P.eeing dog
over the streets, through alleys and
across lawns, but were unable to over
take it. The dog returned to its home
early" in the morning and was quickly
shot by Officer Brehmer.

$980 was secured on the numerous
pieces of forged paper that were pre
sented at the bank. The parents of
the young man. who reside in Illinois.
are now in the city and are endeavor- H
ing to have the prosecution dropped.; J
It is understood tney nave recompense m
ed Mr. Stone for his loss and neither jV
he nor the bank now show a disposi-ji;
tion to prosecute the case. Efforts jfj
were made te have Justice Hall dis-
miss the case, but this he re-fused to do. (f'

Christians Secure Pastor. Rev. Rob

to take charge of the Christian church
recently organized in Moline, and hold-

Offer From Jcliet. Dr. Shaw and Mr.
Stevens, the latter the editor of a
Joliet newspaper, were in the eity
Thursday looking over the local
schools as representatives of the board
of education of that city, and so pleas
ed were they that they made a very
tempting offer to Superintendent G. T.
Smith to become superintendent of the
schools in that city. The offer which
they made carried very little induce
ment for the first year, but after that
the Increase would be so rapid that the
salary would be much greater than
that which h'e is receiving at presenf.
He declined to accept the offer, how
ever, and made a proposition to the
gentlemen which in all probability will
b? accepted by the board of education.
