W. H. Wilson, Plow Shop Em
ploye, Held Up at Thirteenth
1 Street and Second Avenue.
$21 IS TAKEN FROM HIM
On Way Home at 10:30 at Night
When. Two Masked Strangers
" W. H. Wilson, 208 Seventh street.
while on his way to his home at
10:30 last night, was held up by
two strange men at the corner of
Thirteenth street and Second ave
nue and robbed of $21. all of the
money he had with him.
As he was passing the corner on
the south side of the avenue the two
strangers stepped ,in front of him
and as one thrust a revolver in his
face commanded him to hold up his
hands, at the same time admonishing
him not to make an outcry.
Wilson obeyed when he saw that
there was no one to whom he might
appeal for assistance in sight. As
one of the footpads held the gun
under his nose the other rifled Wil
No Light on Corner.
"I had read of holdups before, but
never realized what one's experience
is until last night." Wilson, who re
ported the case to the police said.
"As it happened, there is no light
at the corner of Thirteenth street
and Second avenue. I had come up
town to pay a bill at a store. After
wards I attended the second per
formance at the Majestic theatre. It
was my intention to take a car to
my home, but when one was not in
sight as I reached Second avenue and
Eighteenth street, 1 decided to walk.
I was sauntering along at a pretty
good gait, with such an experience
furthest from my thoughts when 1
suddenly looked into the barrel of
an ugly revolver. Naturally it mo
mentarily took my breath away, and
I don't believe I could have shouted
for help if I wanted to.
Job Done Quickly.
"The Job was done pretty quickly
and the fellows acted as if they were
old heads at the business. They talk
ed softly to me, and only a few
words were spoken. I had nothing
to say under the circumstances.
Both men had their faces covered
with masks. After they had taken
my money away from me they or
dered me to proceed quietly on ray
way, and they disappeared down
Thirteenth street, going south. I
am employed at the Rock Island
Plow company shops."
Falls and Cuts Head.
Wil.iam Strieker, 2112 Gaines street,
Davenport, was injured Tuesday eve
ning at 10.30 o'clock when he tried to
board a Bridge line car at Nineteenth
street and Second avenue in this city.
It is ?:ald that he tried to jump" on the
car while it was going slowly, and was
thrown to the ground, and suffered a
cut on the head, lie was taken to the
police station in Davenport, where a
physlrian was called and closed the
wound with f.ne stitch. The man was
then taken to his home. His injuries
are not considered serious.

A MODERN MOTION PICTURE MACHINE
AND HIGH-CLASS STEREOPTICON
Tm.iffino the joy of the young folks the de
lightful entertainment for the old folks that is
to be obtained from a machine that one minute
produces stereoptieon pictures of Rome, of
Switzerland, scenes from the Arabian Nights,
travels, humorous or religious subjects, and the
next minute will produce life motion pic
tures with remarkable clearness and distinct
ness. The real value of a toy lies in its ability to
instruct as well as amuse. The Stereotrope pos
sesses greater amusement and educational pos
sibilities than any other toy yet devised.
The Stereotrope is not a toy that can be de
molished in short order. It is of strong metal
construction durable, simple, compact noth
ing about it to get out of order. It is no more
cumbersome than the ordinary desk telephone.
It connects to any electric light socket.
It produces a perfect picture from three to
eight feet square, depending on the range. The
pictures come in disq, form thirty on each disc.
The discs are eight inches in diameter, absolute
ly lire-proof, nothing about them to break or tear.
It requires no experience to operate sim
ply the turning of a small crank. The records
slip on the machine with even more case than
phonograph records are adjusted.
The main question with us now is: will we
be able to fill orders later on. We can get only
a limited number orders will be filled in the
order received. One New York house bought
Harned and Von Maur'e is the only store in
the Tri-Cities where you can buy Stereotropes.
Order now or the first thing tomorrow
morning give the children a toy for Christmas
that will be a lasting benefit to them. A toy they
will use the 3-ear 'round.
Of all the bores about the worst
Is he who tells his troubles first.
Who will insist on being heard.
And yet you cannot get in a word.
Whose tale of woes for hours endures,
While you are aching to tell yours.
Who talks and talks about himself.
And puts you meanwhile on the shelf.
Nor thinks of giving way to you,
Although you have some troubles, too.
Of all the bores he heads the list
Confound the blooming cgolist!
