Probably the most wonderful exhibition of horse training was that given yesterday at 1 o clock, byrrof. Hurlburt. Ihe pro fessor drove his trained horses around the square without using reios and so perfectly were the animals under his control that by merely raising the whip they stopped at once. Many other feats were accom plished in a dexterous manner, that con vinced the spectators and especially horse men that tho professor was really what he claimed master of the horse. After the ciaimeu master oi uie norse, Aite exhibition a class was formed at the Island House barn where he took c f ; i i , Rock charge of a vicious animal belonjrios to Fisher & Ilebcrt, Davenport, and although the mare was con sidered dangerous in the extreme yet the professor soon proved himself master, and before a great while had her so per fectly under his control that he had merely to raise his whip to insure obedience to his command. To-day hJ gave another exhibition on Market sqnare, which "re sulted in his increasing the number of his class and more fully than ever established the wisdom of his peculiar thenrv of horse training, lie will remain in Rock Island to-morrow and Saturday, and can be con suited at the Rock Island House.

Steve wanted to use his horse, and when he learned that the girls had gone to the poor farm, ho was angry and going before Justice Wallace he made complaint against them for horse-stealine, The warrant was given to Marshal Wood, and he pro ceeded to the poor farm and .arrested the girls, and brought them back to Milan. After hearing the circumstances Justice Wallace ordered the complaint changed, and the girls were then fiaed $5 each and costs for using property which did not be long to them.

Fred Head's Stable Burglarized. I Borne time during the rain storm last night Fred Head's stable, ia the upper part of the t ity, was entered 6y burglars, and a set of double and one of single har nesses and a valuable lap robe.all valued at about $125, were stolen. The thieves en tered the barn by breaking and then crawling through a window, and then breaking the locks on two doors before they reached the room where the harnesses and robe were. The thieves probably left the articles on the open block just west of Mr. P. L. Cable's residence, while they proceeded to Fezler & Wagner's drug store and stole a wooden box, 2x3- feet in size, for they were found in a box there this morning by Mr. A. P. Grayes,clerk in the C. R. I. & P.' freight office in this city, who Uvea in that vicinity. Mr, Graves opened the box, and then left it on the porch at his house until he could get breakfast, when he intended to notify the police. While at breakfast, Al. Stormbs's express wagon drove up to his door, a man jumped out. and, picking up the box, cooly proceeded to load it into the wagon, Mr. Graves, however, stopped him, and said he could not take the box until he proved the goods were his. The fellow said his name was Winter; that he was horseman; that he had been on a business trip through this state; that he had left the box on the open lot until he could pro cure an express wagon to take it to Daven port, from which point he intended to ship it to his home in Iowa and, altogether told a very straight story, Mr. Graves stil thought all was not right, and told the fellow he would cive him the box if he brought him an officer who would take the responsibility of giving him the goods, The fellow got mad and threutened Mr Graves with prosecuting him for detaining tho box. but as this came failed, he started down town "for a policeman" and that's the last seen of the horseman in this vicinity. It is said he went to Davenport. Til e box was fakeu to the marshal office by Policeman Hr-nnan, aud a few miDutes afterward Mr. Head rushed into the office to report his loss and was agreeably surprised to find that everything had been recovered. Mr. Graves is en titled to considerable credit for the manner in which he detained the goods, as not one man in a hundred would have refused to give up the box when demanded in such a cool and straight-forward manner as the thief assumed. Mrs. Bisant, who lives near, saw two men carrying a box, about the size of the one found, past her house, during the storm last night. Stormbs, the expressman, says he met the fellow near Sylvan VV atcr bridge, as he was going up to tho (Jhiaago depot to meet the morning train.

Late vesterdav afternoon Constable Hull arretted a man. who cave his name as Joseph Connelly, charged with attempt ine to swindle our innocent citizens by selling brsss rings for 50 cents and then allow the buyer to draw three small paper boxes from a pile of about 100, in which, he ciaimed, there was money, lie was taken before Justice Hayden for tria He employed W. II. Rathbun to defend him, and catled for a jury of bix, whicl was sworu in, as follows: M. T. Wiser, C. V. Post, John Albrecht, Qaincy McNeil B. F. Parker und M. W. Childs. J. J Parks prosecuted. The evidence being all ic. tbe jury was locked up in the jus tice's office, while his honor went to 6up per. Constable Hull took the prisoner to jail, and then went to get some mediciue for a sick child so that the jury was left entirely alone. Quiucy McNeil had gone out once or twice during the progress of the trial "to see a man," just often enough to make him dry, and when locked up he proceed to the justice's bed room, adjoining the court room, where he found a demijohn filled with fine, old Scotch whisky, worth $8 per gallon, which Lis honur had purchased at the Holberton sale, a few days ago. As usual, Quincy refused to taste the coutentsof the demijohn, but it nevcrthless was consid erably lowered in quantity in a very Bbort time. When Justice Hayden returned from Buprer he found McNeil standing, or leaning against one of the windows yel ling, swearing and making what might be called a political speech to a large crowd assembled on the sidewalk beneath. As Constable Hull had not yet returned, and as Haydeii had no key to the door of his office, after a vain attempt to quiet Mc Neil, he was compelled to remain a spec tator to the disgraceful proceedings. When Hall arrived, Hayden gave the jury a "piece of his mind", which all will re member, and 'discharged them. The mem hers cf tbe Demijohn jury are explaining the affair to day. This morning Donelly concluded that be would plead guilty, and Justice Hayden fined him $10 and costs. He paid part, and left Lis vulise, revolver, and other things, as security for the balance and he left. m A Point on Which the "Doc tors Agree.
