Trade Relatively Lurht.
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.

:: THE DAY IN DAVENPORT
Clothes Lines and Birds Cause Arrest-
Because of a neighborhood
squabble which involved clothes lines
and robins, C. Biddlson and A. 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.

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

muttered the lad as he witnessed
Ruth Roland in "A Matrimonial Mar-

closed his eyes-and passed off into

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

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

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

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.
