Snlta, 1S3 Elveath street, The torrid temperature continues, with no sign of abatement so far as the local observer stationed at Davenport can discern, although a cheering bulle tin based on general information gain ed from observers throughout the coun itry, sent out from Washington by the Associated Press today, promises re lief in various parts of the country, in 'eluding the Mississippi valley. If this 'bulletin should be sustained by devel opments of the next few hours, it is 'hardly probable that there would be any disposition to hale the tri-city ob server for insubordination or failure to be guided by the signals in this partic ular locality, obdurate as they appear. The promised moderation the signal service bareau of Monday afternoon failed to materialize to any apprecia ble extnt, for that night proved an other restless one for sweltering hu manity and yesterday broke with a fierce suu vjhose rays poured their pit iless fury upon helpless humanity throughout the day and sent the mer cury climbing at a pace that rivaled he highest of the day before, althougo h maximum proved a couple of de rv". less, 102 being the highest read .'t the day. Today, it is unneees to state, is another scorcher. For "'o days and two nights people have "ffered. many of them sleeping out of -ors in search of relief Three deaths have been reported as attributable directly to the heat in Rock Island, and fatalities have also occur red in Davenport, as told on another page. P. J. GrSTAFFSO SlCCfMBS. The excessive heat of yesterday hastened the death of P. J. Gustaf son, who expired at his home, 602 Third street, at 4 o'clock in the af ternoon. A week ago he suffered a paralytic stroke, but appeared to be improving until affected by the ex treme change In the temperature. Mr. Gustafson was a native of Swe den and mas aged 80 years, 10 months and 14 days. He came to "America in 1862. first settling at An Early this morning Smith was call ed upon to shoe a horse belonging to the Rock Islanti Plow company. The horse is a big fractious animal and in order to place the shoes on his hind feet it was necessary to throw him with the assistance of a veter inary. This was done in the yard to the rear of the shop. While Smith was placing the last shoe the horse began to kick and the calk of one of the shoes struck the Bhoer in the head, causing a slight wound. After a rest Smith went at the job again but in a few minutes he was overcome by heat and for a while his condition was serious. It Is now expected he will be up and about after a brief rest. Three heat prostrations were report ed in Moline yesterday, but no fatalities. Xo Fatalities Occur and Accidents Reported Are Not Thought to Be Very Sertoli. Obituary Record MRS. JEAN M. KINNEY. A telegram to Rev. Granville H Sherwood, yesterday imparted the; sad, but not altogther unexpectt-d in- j formation of the death at Saunton, Va., at 3:30 yesterday afternoon of Mrs. Jean M. Kinney, mother of Mrs. Sherwood. The deceased lady had been In failing health for some time and after spending several months in the family of Mr. Sher wood at Trinity rectory left June 21 for her old home at Saunton to await death's summons. Cerebral hemmorhagp mas the immediate cause of dissolution. Mrs. Kinney j was accompanied south by her j daughters, Mrs. Sherwood and Miss j Maude Kinney, and a pathetic though comforting phase of her last days was her anxiety to reach the south before the end came, a desire , that was realized, although 6he fail ed steadily from the time of her ar rival there. Mrs. Kinney was 71 ; years of age, the widow of Alexander F. Kinney who died in 1904. She is survived by the following children: W. G. Kinney. New York, Mrs. Mc-1 Henry Holliday. Staunton, Va., Mrs. ! Granville H. Sherwood, Rock Island,; and Miss Maude Kinney of Staun- j ton. The funeral will be held to-j morrow. Mrs. Kinney during her long stay in Bock Island had won ) many friends mho will be grieved to ' know of her death. rOtSTH OF JTXT INJTTRED. Fred Nald, 701 Third aveooe, ate 15 Slisntlr horaed by firework. Matt Aidnm, 1.122 Vi Third ircaoe Ilnnd braised by eaaaoa eraeker. Clarence A. Mog-ler, Cinrlnaatt Shot la left arm by blank cartridge. Vnkaowa vomi eomlag- here oa Pe oria train yesterday noon Shot over right eye with blank cartridge. The list of injured is the smallest in the history of the city of Rock Island, and it plainly evidence the fact that tLe "safe and sane Fourth" idea is growing in popularity and practice. Last year a large reduction in acci dents m-as noted, but even so it was a bad one compared with this year. There were probably the usual number of minor hurts and burns, but the above list comprises practically all cases in which it was felt advisable to call in a physician. The Nold boy, who Is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Valentine Nold, put a small piece of fireworks in his waist pocket. It became lighted in some way .and before his parents could remove it from the pocket, his waist was burned, the skin on his chest was scorched slightly and his hands were singed. CANNOX CRACKER EXPLODES. Matt Andrews, 15226 Third avenue, held a cannon cracker In bis hand am It exploded when he was not expecting it. The hand was badly bruised by the concussion caused by the explosion, but it was not lacerated and is not considered a serious injury.. Mr. Moglcr, who is a traveling man, was celebrating the Fourth in company with some other travelers. One of them shot off a revolver loaded with blank cartridges, and in some way one of the shots took effect in Mr. Mogler's left arm. The injury was not very se rious. HI SB AND SHOOTS WIPK . The name of the woman who sus tained the injury while on her way here no the noon train from Pooria could not be ascertained. It was learn ed, however, that she was traveling with her husband They had in tb'r possession a revolver, and it seems that the woman did not want her hus band to flourish it about or shoot it off. A playful tussle ensued and it re sulted in the discharge of the weapon. The powder and wadding from the blank cartridge took effect just above the right eye of the woman. It was late in the evening before a physician was summoned. The injury, while painful, is not serious, as none of the powder entered the eye. About 40 grains were removed from above the eye, however. BfOT J1AVT FIREWORKS. Not only was there a conspicuous dearth of torpedo firing and other dan gerous methods of celebrating the Fourth, but also there were compara tively few fireworks set off during the evening hours. Of course there were many people who felt that with perfect safety to themselves and their chil dren and neighbors they could set off Roman candles, skyrockets, redllghts and other similar pieces, but compared with former years there was but little of this. Numerous fire balloons were sent up during the evening and be tween 8 and 9 o'clock the sky present ed a very pretty appearance, but the roar of cannon crackers and torpedoes was heard only at infrequent intervals. MANY HOLD PICNICS. It seems that there was a general de; sire to get out of the city and away from the heated pavements, and the cars to the Watch Tower and Camp bell's island were crowded all day. There were hundreds of family picnics and other small parties, many of the latter being held at the cooler places in the city. There was no general plan of celebration whatever, and yet few kicks were registered ex cept against the weather man.

Adjournment was taken till tomor row afternoon at 2 o'clock, when the Central Union telephone ordinance, which was up for consideration last Thursday, will be up. To secure sufficient funds to tide the city over another brief period or until such time as further arrange ments may be made to secure funds, the municipal commission at the re cess session held Monday afternoon at 4 o'clock, adopted a resolution whereby the borrowing of $5,000 from the five city banks was author ized. In a conference with the of ficials of the banks held early in the afternoon by Mayor Harry M. Sctari ver and Commissioner M. T. Rud eren. arrangements were made with each for a $1,0 00 loan. The agree-' nient reached by the city and bank j officials met with the approval of ! gren. arrangements were made with mere drop in the bucket has been j borrowed. It will last but a short j time but it will materially aid the j city in the conduct of necessary bus-! ipess and will maintain its standard j of credit. ' j COIXTY TREASURER HOLDS FUNDS. In spite of all efforts of the city officials to secure from County Treasurer W. H. Whiteside the funds from the tax levy of last year, amounting to more than $30,000 they have been unsuccessful. This fact alone keeps the commission in a hole and it is found necessary to strain every energy to keep the city payroll down and try at the game time to meet the demands of the citi zens for improvements and work. The effort to secure the funds through the special bond has evi dently fallen fiat because of the treasurer's refusal at the last minute to turn the funds over on it. It be- Dolly Bros.
