Tiie three story brick building at i the southwest corner of Seventeenth and Second avenue, owned jointly by the Cobb estate and the Thomas es tate, was today sold by Master in Chancery J. L. Haas to John Bengs ton for a confederation of $22,000. The building has a frontage of 20 feet on Second avenue by a half block deep on Seventeenth on Market hqiiare. The structure is one of the oldest in the city, having been erected long before the war. For many years the Thomas drug store has occupied the corner of the first floor and there during the life time of the lato T. H. Thomas, well known citizens of Rock Island were wont to congregate. It was in its time a political headquarters and In - ded one of the most popular places in Rock Island. Since the demise of Mr. Thomas the Thomas drug store companv has occupied the corner.

It takes little of our time to mark trices on our Furniture, and we only have ONE price to all people that price rs based on a low figure aimed to build up the NEW fourth floor Fur niture Store's business quickly. The reputation of our Furniture depart aient in selling a third of its entire, enormous stock each month for the past three consecutive months, is the wonder of American retail furniture merchandising. It is our extremely iow introductory prices that have made these enormous sales possible. as hotel premises. Mr. Bengston is being congratulated ! on snapping up one of the rarest bar gains in Rock Island real estate in years. Within two hours of the time he bought the property he was offered a bona fide advance of $3,000 on his purchase price, but he promptly turn ed it down. He said the proposition was away below what the property is worth. The new purchaser has not yet made up his mind what he will do with the property. "If anyone wants to buy it for a brand new building" he said, "I will give him a bargain." There is some sentiment attached to Mr. Beng ston's acquirement of the building for it was in the drugstore owned then by Charles A. Bense that he clerked when he first came to Rock Island from 1S63 to 1868. FIGHT EXPECTED ON ANNEXATION South Rock Island Residents Retain Lawyers Injunc tions Threatened.

When the doors of the new Hill Furniture company, 1615-17 Second avenue, are thrown open Wednesday evening, the public of Rock Island will view one of the finest and most ccmplete furniture stores in the mid dle west. The Hill company, suc cessor to the Hill-Eberle furniture company, formerly occupied store looms at 181t Third avenue. Find ing that the tremendous increase in business had rendered those quarters entirely too small to accommodate the demands, Mr. HiU cast about for ' another location. About March 1, a leal was closed whereby the firm wou, 1 take over the present location. Vinous change were found necessarj, and remodel ing work was begun, representing an outlay of approximately $20,000. The space that was formerly occupied by two separate business concerns has been thrown into one spacious store rocin. On the main floor will be found living room furniture, couches, tables, davenports, chairs and the like. The floor space, 41x152 provides a tre mendous amount of room, and is therefore well adopted for the use in tended. The walls and ceilings, the latter being of steel, have been tint ed a beautiful cream shade, the effect being harmonious and decidedly rich. The main show room is flooded with light in every corner. At night the place is brilliantly illuminated, the in direct lights being used. These are suspended from the ceiling by brass chains, the globes being white and gold. On the second floor is a complete line of rugs, curtains, beds and bed room furniture. A well lighted basement is used as a display room fcr home furnishings, stoves, kitten cabinets, refrigerat ors, etc. No expense has been spared by the Hill Furniture company in an effort to make the new establishment beautiful and modern in every respect, and the results obtained are extremely flatter ing. The new store is a credit to the city at large. I.eo Goldsmith lias beea engaged as head salesman.

Little is known of the history of Anna Aumuller before she took em ployment in the St. Boniface parish house the week before Christmas, 1910. According to a statement is sued last night by Father Braun, she left his parish house in the summen of 1911, returning on Thanksgiving lav 1 Cil an1 luff rha crr,nH , K . Aug. 30. "last. At this time she said!1"?'!? she was about to be married and go to Ohio to live. Father Braun said j that he and his sister, who is his housekeeper, had become attached to the girl because she was very pleas' ant and a faithful worker. "All I know about her," he said, "is' that she came to this country from . . ' Germany about two and a half years I ago. I understand she was an or- j phan, and I have a dim recollection that she may possibly have come to us through an advertisement that I placed in a newspaper for a zirl ! While she had no credentials, I em j ployed her." i Despite her Etatement to another j maid employed in the rectory that she was leaving to be earned, Father 11 f. I J - LUL lie forced to discharge her two weeks agv. nraun aia last nigh: tbat he was "because her mode of living was un satisfactory." The girl, as nearly as could be lcarued, was 21 years old. KKCAI.I.S RK HKSON CASQ The crime recalls that committed on Oc,t. 19, 1911, by Rev. Clarence V. Richeson, a Baptist clergyman of Cambridge, Mass., when he gave Avis Linnell, a girl of 19, who had loved and trusted him, the poison with which she unwittingly ended her life four days after. Richeson confessed and, despite his plea that he be allowed to "make atonement" by spending the rest of his life in jail, he w-as put to death in Charlestown prison on May 12, 1912. He went to his death singing hymns. Many features of the crime also recalls the murder of William Gulden suppe in 1897. As in the present case, the victim's body was dismembered and was found in many pieces In the East river. Louisville, Ky., Sept. 15. Investiga tion here today failed to establish any connection of Rev. Hans Schmidt, held in New York for the murder of Anna Auniiller, with the murder in Ixiuis ville of 8-year-old Alma Kellner, whose mutilated body was found in the base ment of St. John's Catholic church Nov. 30, 1910. Schmidt was a guest of Rev. H. B. Wes'.ermann, pastor of the Church of Immaculate Conception, at the time of the girl's disappear ance. Members of the Kellner girl's 1 family scouted the idea Schmidt was in any way connected w ith her death. m m'i:iki i ;i-:miv. Mainz, Germany, Sept. 15. The Journal today says Johannes Schmidt, belonging to the Mainz bishopric, has been long under suspension by the bishop. He disappeared from Mainz and later arrived at Munich, where he was arrested for committing a number of frauds, according to the newspaper. After being acquitted by the court on the ground he was weak-minded, he emigrated to New York. The Mainz episcopate was not aware he was ex ercising the functions of a priest in New York. Schmidt was ordained a priest in 1907 aud occupied several curacies near Offenbach. He disappeared in 1909 because, according to local pa pers, he waB found in possession of false papers and had obtained his po sition by means of fabricated testi monial. SHAW, THE ECCENTRIC. His Personality Compels Him to Wear ' ' Cocoa Colored Clothes. "1 (love order in all things." snid George Bernard Sbaw at a public meeting some time ago. "For this reason I am not content with ordering my life; I also order my personality. I have cocoa colored hrir. so I wear cocoa colored clothes and drink cocoa." Shaw today has reached the position of becoming a public institution. For more than twenty years be has suc ceeded in fulfilling his boast that every day some leading paper would have something to say about bini. George Bernard Shaw is the Jester at the court of King Demos. When years ago he was appointed dramatic critic to a well known Journal, be re fused to obey the ironclad regulation that occupants of the stalls must wear evening dress. The first night he was stopped at the door of a theater by an attendant. "What do you object to? My cocoa colored Jacket ?' The attendant assented. "Very well then." said the critic. "I will remove it." And the next moment he was striding tip the alsle in bis shirt s)eeves.

A CURIOUS LOVE SCENE. :. Rochefort Sprang a Surprise on th Troubled Couple. Rochefort could be very democratic on occasions.

John, who never spoke of Itocliofort otherwise that, as "the mnr quee," Kloomlly informed Charlotte that their project must be kept a pro found secret, for It was n custom in aristocratic houses fit London that when sen-ants In the same household became engaged to be married they were promptly dismissed.

At last Charlotte took her courage in two hands and. dragging the trembling John belli nd her. advanced Into th awesome presence of "the marquee" while he was taking coffee after lunch.
