FLATIRON; NOT COW'S HOOF
Scar of Efforts to Resuscitate Lead to
Theory of Farmer's Death.
Coroner Limerick of Whiteside coun
ty has returned after holding an in
quest over the remains of David Gsell.
He found the cause of his death to have
been heart failure. The mark on his
body over the heart, which was sup
posed to have been made by the kick
of a cow, proved to have been a slight
burned spot caused from the use of
a flat iron in the frantic efforts which
were made by the wife and daughter to
resuscitate him after his body was
found in the field. The shape of the
iron was much like that of a cow's hoof
and that gave rise to the Idea of his
having been kikced.

Delegates Attend Tri-City Labor Con
gress Meeting Steps Taken to
Found a New Organ.
At the meeting of the Tri-City Labor
congress last evening at the Industrial
Home building, three delegates from
the Davenport Trades and Labor as
sembly were present, the first time in
fonie years that the Davenport body
has been represented at the meeting
of the congress. The congress elected
five delegates to attend the next meet
ing of the Davenport body. This ex
change of courtesies is along the line
of the movement for a consolidation of
the two organizations.
At last evening's session steps were
taken toward the founding of a new
official organ for the congress, and to
this end a resolution was adopted sev
ering the connection of the congress
with the Tri-City Unionist. The new
organ, it is understood, will be con
ducted by the congress, and will be
started in the near future.
