MACHINE A TOTAL WRECK Plunges Through Space Landing Creek Occupants' Escape Serious Injury. in Eight Rock Island people, traveling in a automobile, narrowly escaped death yesterday morning when the machine skidded cn a narrow bridge near Batavia, jumping down an em bankment a distance of 25 feet and landing in a creek.

The Rock Island tourists left for Ot tumwa Thursday morning, but owing to heavy rains were detained at Win nVM. Yesterday morning just outside Batavia, the machine started across a bridge. Th boards were slippery ow ing to the heavy rainfall, and the car skidded, lurching suddenly to the side and off the structure, on which there w as no railing. The car plunged down a 2-ri-foot embankment and landed in a creek at the bottom. All of the oc cupants in the car were thrown into the water and received a duck ing. All of them wore badly shaken up. They returned to this city on the Rock Island train last night, and the ambulance was called to convey Mrs. Mclnnis to her home. The machine, which was a total wreck, will be ship ped here later.

FAMOUS BARITONE ON A 400-MILE CANOE TRIP A broadshouldered man with the buiid of a college gridiron hero, ac companied by an athletic yonnj woman the kind that does not scream "Merciful Heavens'' when a mouse trips across the dining room floor both of them with sleeves rolled tip revealing muscular arms tanned to the color of walnut, stain, strode into the New Harper lobby yesterday after noon, and stepping up to the desk asked the clerk for a 'room. The ever-watchful guardian of the hostelry critically inspected the rough looking attire of the couple, gazed at a small bundle which comprised tlieir luggage and then cogitated. Observing the general air of sus picion which seemed to surround the clerk, the man ventured. "We ar.. married and we have not cracked the Fafe at the Libertyville bank. We are not mendicants, neither are we strand ed show people. To the contrary, we are highly respee'ed citizens of Madison, Wis. and have the necessary government engraved certificates to safeguard you against loss. When leaving a hotel, we invariably make our exit, via the front door and have never taken our departure by the fire esral,e route. We desire a room for the night. I might furthermore add that the absence of sartorial splash is due to the fact, that we are making an extended canoe trip, which does not call for 18 changes of scenery per diem." The doubling clerk, slightly reasur ed, extracted the pen point from the usual po'ato, and handed it. over with a motion which was anything but en thusiasfic. The guest applicant then inscribed the following "Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Bassett, Madison. Wis." Had the clerk been a follower of the society page in lieu of the sporting news and the police court columns he would have immediately recalled that a Mr. A. Til. Bassett of Madison, Wis. was a famous baritone sinser, and also that he gave a recit.al for the Cham inade club of Havenport a few mon hi ago. He would also have recalled that the selfsame Bassett entertained a select audience at Moline some years ago, the occasion being a musicale j given by the Moline Woman's ciub. Mr. Bassett is known the country j over and every winter makes an ex tended concert tour, embracing the leading cities of the Cnlted Statf.s He ha8 a vecal studio a: Madison, at which municipality the and his I i(V are members of the "Four Hundred." Mr. a;id Mrs: Bassett are making a 4'nt-mile water voyage in a canoe. They left Madison on September 2. launching their frail craft on Lak; Mahona, thence proceeding into Lake I Kegcnsa, thence on the Yahara river to Rock river. They abandoned the they padce.! into the Mississippi and I nroceeried i proceeded on the r inurnev u-hlh j will ultimately land them ai, St. Louis. There they will board a train and ship the canoe back to Madituii. "Is this a honeymoon trip," queried an Argus reporter in couversa'icn 'ith the devotees of the simple Ufa at the New Harper last night. "No, it is our honeymoon anniver sary jaunt," chorused Mr. and Mr Bassett. "You see," explained Mr. Bas sett, "we were married one vear atm and made a similar canoe trip for our . n honeymoon. We have decided to take this outing every year at this par ticular time. The long concert grind of the winter Is wearing, and I find that the best way to recuperate, is to get out, in the fresh air and get close to nature." Both of the voyagers are so tanned that their complexions are almost of a mahogany tint. Both of them paddle the canoe, and thus far they have averaged four miles an hour. They carry with them a tent, just what, c'othing Is necessary, two days provisions, and some cooking para phernalia. They "row-row-row" rain or shine, two "slickers" being a part of the equipment. , "We are enjoying it. immensely," they said, "and the weather has been ideal." As the interview- was about to close, Mrs. Bassett nudged her husband, who said. "Oh yes, and where are the movies here? We are both 'film bugs' and never miss a chance to take them in when we stop In a town. Of course when we camp out on the river bank, we have to absorb the pr; scenery". The requisite information being tendered, a good bye was spoken. "And don't forget to send us a paper," cried Mrs. Bassett as the reporter was making his retreat, thus proving the theory that but very few women are averse to newspaper publicity of certain kind. SHERIFF BRUNER IS AT OFFICE TODAY Sheriff O. L. Bruner appeared a his office this morning and hopes from uow on to be able to take active charge of the work, following an illness of a year. Mr. Bruner will b required to appear in circuit court Monday to an swer to th. indictments returned against him.
