Chicaro. July Black rnst dam- ace increasintTand the infected terri tory wideiiiiiR caused a fresh advance today in the price of wheat. Trade was relatively light. The opening, which ranged from c to l&c to lc higher, with September at 1.24 to 1.2tT and December at 1.27 to 1.21, was followed by a moderate reaction, but then another upturn. Later the market underwent a ma terial sag owing to assertions by a prominent expert that crop losses in the Dakotas and Minnesota would per haps not reduce the yield there under a seven year average. The close was weak lc to lc net. lower, with Sep tember at 1.22 Ufc 1.22 and Decem ber at 1.25. Dry. hot weather carried corn up grade. After opening ic to 1 to l'c higher, the market held fairly steady. Subsequently the market receded as a consequence of reports that within the last ten days nearly 1,000,000 bushels of Argentine corn had been bought to come to the l'nited States. The close was unsettled, ranging from l'-zc decline to dtc average as compared with yesterday's finish. Oats hardened with other cereals.

Pahl were brought before Police Magistrate Claussen to answer to charges of dis turbing the peace. The Biddison and Pahl families live in the same house, and the squabble arose over the own ership of the back yard of the resi dence. Mrs. Biddison claimed a right to hang clothes to dry in the yard, and the Pahl family claimed the same right. Unfortunately both women wabhed on the same day. Mrs. Biddi son beat her neighbor to the clothes line, and when Mrs. Pahl was ready to hang up her clothes, she simply took the line down. Then Mr. Biddi son came to the rescue, and Mrs. I'ahl's son did likewise. The fight that followed landed the two in court. The feud began, both parties claimed, when Mrs. Pahl engaged a bunch of Ikivs to shoot the robins out of her cherry tree. Mrs. Biddisou claims that she "objected to having the robins shot, and a verbal light led to open enn.fty. Pahl drew a fine of $1 and costs, and Biddison was discharged. Pat Rnhl Keeps t ool YVith Cakes of lee - Prominent officials have said that the most important thing for a police man to know is how to keep cool. No matter what the conditions weather or otherwise may be, the officer must preserve his equilibrium. Recog nizing this important fact, Pat Ruhl, traSfio 'cop" at Second and Brady streets, has invented a new scheme which it is said he intends to patent. Kverv time an ice wagon goes by, Pat buvs a nickel's worth of ice. He places it carefully on the intersection, between the street car tracks. Then lie placos one foot on the ice while ho handles traffic in his capable way. When one foot becorry passably cool, Pat simply shifts his weight on to the other foot, and changes fides. The invention is one that will probably be copied by the other traffic policemen within a short time. ; Brands I'rhate -Coward" Branding i Private Wilt of the Iowa National Ignard, Battery B, as a "coward" and vellow."

Council in Secret Ssion --It became known yesterday that on Tuesday eve ning, the members of the city council with the exception of Alderman Julius Jehring, who is out of the city, met with Mayor John Berwald, but per sistent questioning has brought no re sult as to the object of the meeting. Great secrecy was maintained by Mayor Berwald in calling the meeting. With the exception of the aldermen, no one knew that it was to be held, or that it had been held until this morn ing, when the word first leaked out. After persistent questioning. Mayor Berwald admitted that the meeting had been held, as did also Alderman Kaben. Neither, however, would make 'any statement as to the matters under (discussion. "The meeting," declared jthe mayor, "was held in the best inter ests of the city, and matters of public ! w elfare were taken up. Further than that, 1 refuse to give out any informa tion." Cooperation and efficiency, the mayor's two strong points, were dis cussed at some length. It is presumed that the mayor broached some of his ideas as to how the council should be conducted. Tenth Goes to Sleep in Theatre and is Locked In. Charlie Vescio, 9-year-old son of Frank Vescio, 518 West Second street, is a Juvenile movie fan. He dropped into the American not an unusual custom with him. "Dis matermony bunk gets on me nerves," muttered the lad as he witnessed Ruth Roland in "A Matrimonial Mar- I tyr." So he snuggled up in his seat, closed his eyes-and passed off into j slumberland. Eleven o'clock came j and on the curtain was flashed good night. But Charlie did not see the words. He slumbered on. The lights were put out and the doors locked. At 1:20 o'clock in the morning Char lie awoke. He rubbed bis eyes and in the darkness crawled over the theatre until he found a window, through which ho climbed into the outer world. He then wended his way home. "Ie next time I goes into dat show house I vill ask the doorkeeper to wake me up when the show is over," declared the lad. While Charlie was locked up in the theatre the po lice were scouring the city for him, his disappearance having been report rd by the parents. Two Heat Pm.trat.ins. Two heat prostrations were reported in Daven port as a result of the terrific heat ALEDO AT Daily Doings in Mercer Inquest Over Body of Frank Kader. Coroner E. N. Mackey went to Keithsburg Wednesday night immedi ately following the recovery of the body of Frank Clifford Rader, who was drowned that afternoon in the Mississippi river just opposite Keiths burg at the east end of Black Hawk island, and held an inquest. Coroner Mackey impanneled the following jur ors: E. J. Glancey, Harvey Willits. C. E. Dryden, A. Dunn, E. Welch and F. i J. Ogle. After careful consideration j of all evidence attainable the jury re turned a verdict of accidental drown- ing. According to the evidence the j young man am not iau irom a Doat, but became exhausted while swim ming and could not gain his way back to the shallow water near the shore. Rader and Frank Robinson, a neigh bor, had gone to Keithsburg from their homes at Peneil to purchase repairs for the Rader threshing machine. They decided to row across to Black Hawk island and go swimming. They waded about near the shore for some time, but steadily worked their way out into the river. Evidently they had left the boat 15 rods behind. When in striking deep water Rader became unable to swim. He yelled to Robinson to get the boat. The latter immediately swam for the boat. Upon looking about just as he reached the boat Rob inson says he saw Rader endeavoring to stay above the water. After climb ing into the boat and starting to the rescue Rader disappeared. He then rowed to Keithsburg, where he told some men of Rader's drowning. Frank Tobias and Dan Thompson, employes of a button factory not over a hundred yards away from the tcene of the drowning, when told of the tragedy wanted to go at once and drag for the body. The management of the factory, however, would not allow Tobias and Thompson to do so. An hour after the drowning a number of people had ar rived at the scene, but nothing was ac complished toward recovery of the body until Tobias and Thompson came at quitting time from the button fac tory and began dragging the river bot tom about the place. They used a long pole weighted heavily and equipped with a large number of strings with common fish hoods at tached. After about one hour of earn est endeavor on the part of these two young men the hooks became fast up on the body of Rader, one hook lodg ing in each trouser leg and another in the left hand. The body was taken im mediately to the Steubinger undertak ing parlor at Keithsburg, where the inquest was held. The remains were then brought to Aledo and placed in the Morrison undertaking parlor. Yes terday afternoon the remains were carried to the Rader home at Peneil, where funeral services will be held Saturday morning at 10 o'clock in the Peniel church, Rev. N. S. Sutherman officiating. The Aledo I. O. O. V. lodge No. 236 will conduct the funeral ser vices. Vein Struck at Depth of 4CI Feet. Wednesday evening saw the strik ing of the coveted vein of water at. the new ice plant site by the Wr. S. Van Tyle Drilling company. The vein was encountered at a depth of 464 feet, 50 feet deeper than the city well. Mr. Van Tyle says that there must be a drop in the land containing the vein at the ice plant site. The last 200 feet the men mere drilling through solid lime stone. The water from the well looks and tastes the same as that which was taken from the city well the time of its completion. Water has risen in the well to a point 150 feet below the sur face of the ground. The water will be analyzed by a state chemist and it is expected that it will be found to he pure. Plans for the erection of the new artificial ice plant on this well site will be pushed. wave which has held Davenport and vicinity in its fjrapp. Miss Myrtle Dunn, who lives with her mother, Mrs. M. J. Dunn, in Fishertown, returned from her work at the Modern Wood men of America office. She complain ed of having a terri.ic headache, and retiring to her room, laid down on the bed. Some moments later, when her mother entered the room with cool clothes, she found the young wo man very ill. Physician were called and the girl taken to Mercy hospital in the police ambulance. She is re covering rapidly and expects to leave the hospital the latter part of this week. A combination of booze and heat got away with Tim Brady. He started up the steps at the postoffiee, hesitated on the third step, sat down, collapsed and rolled to the sidewalk. A crowd gathered and the police am bulance was called. Tim was carried off to the city jail, thence to the coun ty jail, and when his imagination grew too acute he was removed to St. John's hospital, where he is recuper ating. Heat Klllin?
