Mrs- Or. Keck
Tbe Annus lakes pleasure in calling

Mrs. Dr. Keck, who has been so long and
favorably known in this vicinity, having
been located here for fifteen years in her
own beautiful mansion, corner Sixth and
Brady streets, Davenport, where the af

testimonials of our own citizens of the

est possible evidence that the doctor can
be relied upon in every case. We would

A Cirem Collision-
At 3 o'clock yesterday morning the sec
ond section of Forepiiugh's Circus train
ran into the rear end of tbe first section
which was standing on the track at Eddys
ville, Iowa, about sixteen miles from Ol-
tumwa. Dr. Peck, chief surgeon of the
Rock Islaud railway, left at 2 o'clock yet
terday afternoon on a special train for
the scene of the accident to render surs
gical aid. The following is a correct list
of the wounded with the nature of tlieir
injuries:
Joe Copps, no home; slight contusion
on tbe chest.
Louis Hotter, of St. Louis, contusion
on right arm.
Frank Boyd, of Philadelphia, bruises on
left arm and thigh.
Frank Holland, of Detroit, Mich., col
lar bone broken.
Frank Baker, of New York, contusion
left shoulder.
August Schmidt, of Belleville, 111., con
fusion on chest.
Michael Welsh, of Philadelphia, bruise
on right side of bead.
Louis Leganders, of Three Rivers.Can
ada, bruise on left leg.
Sidney Joessin, of Brooklyn, N. Y., se
vcre bruise on hand.
Alf Peters, slight cut on scalp.
W. Smith, slight cut on band.
R. Connelly, slight cut on ankle.
Telegrams received by the railway
management state the wounds are slight
and that none are thought to be danger
ous by the surgeons. All the wounded
mentioned above, with the exception of
four or five, arrived in Davenport at an
early hour this morning on a special train
and were removed to Mercy hospital for
treatment. The men injured occupied the
last sleeper on the first section, and are
all laborers. One sleeping car was par
tially demolished and the damages to the
engine will amount to between $300 and
$400. None of the animals were in
jured.
Said a well known passenger conductor
on the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific
road this morning, "it's a wonder there
are not more accidents to circus trains
than there are. The cars are hardly ever
repaired, 'and many of the brakes are
taken off in order to load heavy cages
and wagons. The railroad companies
should compel the showmen to keep their
cars in first class condition, as a precau-
tiod for safety and expense to all parties
concerned."
Biver Biploti-
Tbe elegant Sidney is expected down
tomorrow morning.
The flying War Eagle passed up today.
The Maggie Reaney, which for two
years has been a pleasure packet, is now

in glowing terms of their trip and the
hospitality of Capt. Whistler. The Denk
man is the pleasure yacht of the rafters,
and withal a trim craft.
Doing Nicely.
Mr. U. S. Ruby, who was injured at
Buffalo by an accident with a coal wagon
last Tuesday, is getting along as nicely as
can be expected. His left side is badly
bruised but no bones are broke o, and no
serious outcome is anticipated.

'Hear anything new about the plow
works?" said a citizen.
"No;" said the pilgrim. "Is there any
thing new down there?"
Oh, nothing particular, only Mr. tiil-

think he intends to run the concern on
an economical basis. He has begun
right."
"Do vou think there will be any more
changes?"
'Well, yes; there will be nobody kept

Xntloal Elimination.
The musical examination of Mrs,
Swan's graduates, Blanche Harrington
and May Fischer, took place In the con
servatory of music in tbe institute build
ing, on Friday evening of last week. It
was attended by a limited number of in
vited guests. The examination proved
two things to the satisfaction of every
body present: that Mrs. Swan is a thor
ough and conscientious teacher, and that
tbe young ladies who ran the gauntlet of
her rigid examination on that evening are
thoroughly well versed in matters musis
cal. In fact a pair of more thoroughly
competent young lady musicians it would
be difficult to discover. They are natural
musicians to begin with. Music is as
natural to them as to the bird, who sings
because he cannot choose but siag. Added
to this is the polish, the culture of Mrs.
Swan's course ot musical instruction.
The examination in this instance was
rigid and thorough, and the young ladies
acquitted themselves in a manner to do
them credit. We understand that Miss
Harrington will shortly engage in teacb
ing in Kearney, Neb. Should this be
true, we congratulate the good people of
Kearney in advavce on the prospect of
having in their midst one so thoroughly
competent to teach music as Miss Hars
rington, as well as one who will prove an
ornament to the best society of the city,

equalled in any gallery in this vicinity, but We plainly say (and it is ,
matter easily demonstrated) that no gallery in this contains one-half of iii,
amount of our instruments; we don't boa9t that they were bought in a icq
nant sale and used by predecessors for 85 years. On thb contrary, nm
instruments are of the latest improved makes, contaniing among other; iix
Voigtlaender Enryscope and Dallmeyer Instantaneous Lenses . These tw0
Celebrated Lenses caknot be fodnd in ant Oallert in thib cm m ,
ours. A pleased patron is the best advertisement and we strive to stuun
the advertisement by tbe excellence of our work. In order to better min
satisfactory results, every patron is given a show of three or four dm.
lives, diflerent positions, and all of these proofs are shown, and should ",'
improvements suggest themselves, resittiugs will gladly be made tree ,
charge. Gallery corner 18th street and 2nd avenue, Rock Island,
