city for a number of years and was
very well known, came to a sudden
death this morning, while at a camp
out on the bank of Mill creek on Big

in the city this morning to the effect
that he had been murdered, others
that he had been shot while hunting
and half a dozen other stories and Mr.
Wehling's many friends were at a

son and his brother, Henry, he weut

The verdict of the coroner's jury was
in accordance with the report of the
physician, that the deceased had come

Native of City.
' Mr. Wehllng was born in this city
and was 35 years old. He is survived
by his wife and two children, Henry
and Olga, his father, Fred Wehling, a
brother, Henry., and three sisters, Mrs.
Frank Bleuer, Mrs. John Fasserl and
Mrs. R. Kanaka, the latter being a
resident of Sterling and the others
residing in Rock Island. .
Mr. Wehling was a prominent mem

iDqurHl itvrr a Child.
Coroner Rose was called yesterday
afternoon to investigate the death of
the three weeks old child of Mr. and
Mrs. Carl Schaipp of South Rock Is
land. The parents yesterday morning
at 8 o'clock endeavored to secure the
services of a physician, but the first
three who were called could not at
tend to the case, and it was 1:30 be
fore a physician arrived, and the
child died at 12 o'clock. The evidence
at the inquest showed that death was
due to convulsions. Dr. W. L. Eddy of
Milan, and Drs. C. T. Foster and J. E.
Asay of this city were all called by the
family, but none could attend to the
case at once, and Dr. Asay did not
reach the home until some time after
the child had passed away.

THIRTY-EIGHT years ago this store,
was founded and dedicated to the
principle that the true merchant was
the agent of his customers and that the
creed "Lef the buyer beware" was out
worn, and no longer had a place in hon
In 1870, when this new kind of store
was incorporated with these principles,
many smiled and said the new kind .of
store cannot last but this was more than
thirty-eight years ago, and today the mer
chant who does not give full protection to
every customer is an outlaw in the realm
of honorable trade.
