: A vision of blisg was rudely shatter
ed for two eloping couples following a
long, weary tramp of over 100 miles,
when the lore-lorn ones were routed
out of a straw stack near Taylor Ridge

The romance began in Cedar Rapids
several: months ago. The young mea
left the trl-cltles and secured employ
ment at a Cdar Rapids hotel. Being of
a religious turn cf mind, they ofttimes
attended divine services at the "Sun
shine Mission." and thers they met the
two girls. The acquaintance ripened
into a close friendship. Tho girls were
cbums and were repeatedly in the com
pany of the trl-city young men. Final

Mrs. Flfield objected to the young
man's attentions towards her daugh
ter and there were several stormy
sreneg. The mother, so the girl al
leges, threatened to put her out of the
house, unless she ceased keeping com
pany with Ixng. Then the elopement
lot was hatched, and last Tuesday af
trrnoon the girls stole away from home,
met their respective Lotharios, and
started on the Journey to Rock Island,'

Shortly before 9 o'clock last night
Deputy SherifT Charles Dunlap, who
resides in Taylor Ridge, was notified
that two couples whose actions had
aroused suspicion were on the Joe
Huber farm, a mile and a half north
of the Ridge. Dunlap immediately
started out and found the members of
the "Open Air CuJt" rleeping at the
top of a high straw stack. They had
burrowed two holes In the stack to a
depth of threa feet and were curled
up fast asleep. The deputy quickly

Is Still on.
As yet the authorities have been
unable to locate Alfonse Vens. the
Belgian who is believed to have mur
dered "Basil Martens, the South Rock
Island dairyman, although they are
practically certain, from information
gleaned yesterday, that the fugitive is
hiding eiUier in Rock Island,' Moline
or East Moline, and has not fled the
country as was the supposition.
Sheriff Gv L. Bruner. together with
Deputies Hughes and Dunlap, Invaded
Andaluj'a yesterday and there obtain
ed the first real c'.ew as to Vens'
whereabouts. At the Tom Dyer sa
loon, the proprietor turned over to the
sheriff a suitcase, which had been
left there by the supposed murderer.
Vens was In the saloon a few days
ago, just previous to the murder, and
borrowed a dollar, leaving his valu
ables as security. In the suit case
were found shot gun shells, a number
of .38 calibre cartridges and some
clothing. A number of Belgians in
the Andalusia colony informed the
sheriff that Vens was a bad actor and
was "in bad" throughout that entire
vicinity. He was always in need of
money, they said, and had borrowed
promiscuously. In their opinion, Vens
was still hiding in the tri-cities.

sale, conducted each year by the Asso
ciated Cl-arities, the date of which Is
set for the week of Oct. 20. In other
years the rummage sale has been one
of the most prolific sources of. rev
enue for the carrying on of the work
at the Association house and unless
the general public assists in making
this the usual success, the work will
be preatly hampered. So far the
association has been unable to pro
cure a place for holding the sale and
the board is very much at sea as to
the proper course to pursue. Commit
tees have searched the city for a suit
able place and so far have been un
successful. In case, however, that no
building can be procured, an effort will
be made to hold the sale on the Asso
ciation grounds. Collection of articles
for the sale will begin Oct. 20, and
any one having articles they wish to
donate should send a card with the
address to the Association house or
telephone and the wagons will make
the collection. The public is so famil
iar with the articles that can be dis
posed of, which Include nearly every
thing imaginable, that the association
has decided to issue no hand 'bills
this year. Announcements will be
made in all the churches and a house
to house canvass will probably be
made before the sale. Mrs. W. A Dar
ling is chairman of the rummage sale
committee and she will be assisted by
members of the advisory committee,
and Mrs. Wirt Taylor, who will re
main in the city till after the sale,
and W. S. Parks.
' WORK AT ASSOCIATION HOI fty).
The work being done at the Asso
ciation house is not fully appreciated
by the general public, which is ignor-
iant of its workings to a large extent.
The house is maintained primarily as
an emergency home for children and
stranded women and those in need of
immediate relief. Recently a Jewish
family, stranded on the streets, was
given accommodation at the homo and
is still there. Each case is thorough
ly investigated before being accepted
at the home. The membership dues
of the association assist in carrying
on the work, but as stated before
much depends upon the outcome of
the rummage sale as to the future
maintainance of the association.
