The prema ture cabinet-makers, who always make it a point to decide Just who'll make up a new president's official family be fore he himself baa had thaa to de cide, have named William J.

Mr. Wilson, no o;nLr candidate tor trie presidency. Governor Wilson is not at all likely to bo swayed by a sense of gratitude in making cabinet selections.

BODY AND MIND INJURED Digs Frantically at Misery Makers While Cruel Thief Goes South With Funds. It's the little things in lire that count. Sunday morning Benjamin F. Oliver of Muscatine laid down in a bed of little sand btrrrs for a fleeting iistant, but in that brie space of time his misery was great, for while he was engaged in the disagreeable task of dislodging the pesky things from his hide, a stranger grabbed his wallet containing f20, removed the kale seed, and beat a hasty retreat, leaving his friend cursing at his cruel fute and biting splinters out of his digits. The robber, Charles Reed", ol this city, was captured yesterday noon and this morning the case was contin- tied until Saturday. TOO GENEROUS. "Sandburr Ben" is too kind hearted end this laudable trait led to hi downfall. He hit Rock Island Satur day night and proceeded to celebrate a wet night with his $40 stake. Sun- nay morning, while still the possessor or a hangover, he met Charles Reed, who made mention of the fact hat the pangs of hunger were gnawing at i , . , . . . . . . . his very vitals and that a little sus tenance would perchance not be en tirely amiss. Ben was toucheC Dy the plea Tor bread and taking his new found companion into a restaurant, bought hirn a heavy breakfast, and in paying for same, flashed his roll. Reed's avaricious tendencies then be gan to assert themselves and he sug gested that they go down to the shore or the "Father or Waters" and ab sorb a little scenery. The suggestion was a welcome one and the pair ! walked due east until they had passed the upper bridge. PI'HSE IS STOLEN. Feeling drowsy after his strenuous right, Oliver cast his weary body on tbe ground, but immediately rose with a wild yell and some 200 sand burrs of assorted sizes. Then it was that Peed grabbed the purse and ran. The theft was reported to the police and Reed was nabbed by Chief Brinn and Officer Meenan about noon on an Elm s'.reet car. When searched, "he had only $3 or $4 on his person and the supposition is that the loot was cached at some solitary nook, far re moved from the maddening din of the grimy city.
