C. C KNELL. HASH X. C0MFD1T Aro what the human race has been Becking since the days when the flaming sword in the hands of an angel, turned rather thinly clad lady and gentleman out of a home that was a perfect paradise, in to the cold, uncharitable world. To huut up a boarding house was Mr. ami Mrs. Adams' first undertaking. They bought a Hock I .si and paper and sat down on the watch tower under a fig tree to read the Rtale adiltt, and talk over the prospects of the election. Not n house was for rent, no nicely furnished front room for gen tteniau and wife; nothing even to he had, not even a stick of furniture (for that was before the sound of the h'uil, l body had died) eo they and their children commenced looking elsewhere. The old folks were never able to find anything like the old home, sweet home, their ac cident deprived thcin of. However, several years alter this event. a lot, of their distant relatives went west to grow up with the country, and they built up thriving cities all over ti c piair les and along the banks of the great river. Now see how these descendants are progressing. Motors run at large on our streets to scare off trade and horses Then think of KISTIELL'S Furniture Establishment, And smile or look at his immense stock, and smile again, beautiful (the styles are not as they were in Adam's time) or hire somebody to kick you around the alley, because any man dare presume to make such success in a business where you do not want it. Ol course wo cun't suit everybody. Don't want to. Wo Rive it up; it kan't be did. Some people don't like our style.

I've actually heard people say they would not buy of Knell simply because he was such a pusher anil boomed trade, nr matter if it was dull. However, they gen erally como for all that and buy from us. Why? Simply because they know that they can save money and get a better as. sortmcnt to select from. If I can't sell patent chairs to the inhabitants of a des. ert island, I can yet sell furniture to a great many very pleasant customers at prices that other dealers can not tumble tb." But there was Mr. Blinks, he thinks he's so smart. Of course nothing suits him that 6 his game from the Btart. And he winks at his wife so cute on the sly. As much as to say you can't fool me if you try. Over the creek everything is sold so cheap. And all that he buys Is counted up in a heap. When ho gets back he only blows about the bargain he got. But don't say a word how he got gulled oa Met lot. Oh no.not on a lounge would he dare to lie For that would'nt do in the sweet by and by. He 'a so interested at heart for the success of this town.

The Itofiiico Sought by Frank lurgr, Formerly of thin Citj-Voyerty Mid IMnsipatfon Cinse the Act. Munv in this oily will remember Frank Burger; he resided here from 1853 until twelve years ago, when, because of his dissipation his wife secured a divorce and he went away, his wife afterwards mar rying Mr. Shautz. After leaving Rock Island little was heard of Burger for a while. He drifted aimlessly about, and on the evening of Saturday. Nov. 10, half crazed with drink, he applied at Mercy hospital at Davenport, for admission, and was received. He was suffering too from erysipelas. Ho told the Sister Superior that his nnme was Frank Burger, and that he was from Allen's Grove. He was placed in a room and remedies were atU ministered which cased his suffering and restored his reason. Then he said that he came from near Fairport. where he had been working as corn busker; that he was in the hospital in May, 18S2, a sufferer from intermittent fever, and was so well treated that now he applied again. He told Dr. Cantwell, hospital physician for the week, that lie was 5(1 years of aire, that he was a widower, and that his two chil dren lived in Hork Island. He improved from the hour he was received in the hos pita), and Friday evening he was almost well. Saturday morning Dr. Kutp, sue. feeding Dr. Carilwell tu visitation, saw him and thought he was ncarlv well. At I o'clock that afternoon, a male nurse e?i lerod his room, gave him a glass of milk and asked him if he wanted more. "No I shall want no more milk," he replied At a odoeK tnc nurse entered the room again anil there was Burger suspended to an iron bar which was across the win dow--blaek in the face and lifeless. He had taken his red cotton handkerchief, looped it about his throat, tied the ends to the bar. which was not live feet from the door, thrown his feet out, his seat al most touching the lloor, and strangled himself- in that position. The nurse called the -sisler superior, who instantly directed that ho be cut down, in the hope that life might not be extinct. Hut all elforts to restore lifewero useless. Cor oner McCortney was summoned, lie held an inquest. The verdict was "death hy hanging his own act.'' The deceased was penniless nothing but a bunch of six keys, Willi a strip of cloth which bore his name attached to Hum ring. He was buried at the expense of the county. The deceased leaves six children, Fred Willie, Charles, Minnie and Mrs. J. W Mason, of this city, anil Frank Burger, of Ileardstown. Mr. Fred Burger spoke in very high terms of his father this morn ing; said that ho was kind hearted, and but for his addiction to drink there would have been no jars in bis domestic life. The body will be taken up in the future and given a decent interment. Morning filazs. At 1 o'clock yesterday morning, lire was discovered in I he Neweoinb House block nt Davenport. Flames wero issu ing from Webb's crockery store. The fire department was got on hand and the flames were soon under control, although they had made their way into Kinerson's "fair store. 1 he lire started in a water cloict belonging to the crockery store. The damage by lire am water to the building will foot up if 1, .HHI to 12,000 insured. The damage to the slock of Kiuerson, by water, is estimated al $1,000 at least there was bad drenching of the central portion of the double at ore. The damage is covered by insurance . The damage in Webb Bros, store was not ex tensive. There was uo damage at all in any of the other stores. A Strong Firm. b ulton is to have a strong linn in the wholesale litjuor business in the persons of Col. H. B. Burgh and Cant. J. M Uoardslcy. Capt. Beardsley has been uu- lil a short time ago deputy collector of internal aevenue, and he made a good official. Col. Burgh has for sixteen vears been ir. the service of the treasury depart inent of the government as special agent and ganger, hut lie has tendered his res ignalion. The new firm has secured i store in the heart of Fulton, and propose embarking in the business mentioned in a short time. To Sne for Damages. Major .1. M. Beardsley left for St. Louis this morning to bring suit against the Wiggins Ferry company for personal damages occasioned by one of the com pany's boats carelessly colliding with a flat boat of which Dick Farrell and Geo. Reddig, both of this city, were occupants. Reddig hail his jaw bone broken and re ceived several other bruises in the acci dent. He is now lying seriously ill in this city. The company offered him If ;)00 at the lime of the in cident, November 20, hut he refused it, feeling that he could claim and get more. Hts Snccesaor The resignation ol Col. H. B. Burgh, as special agent and ganger o f the treass ury department, to take effect immedi ately, will no doubt hasten the appoint ment of his successor. James K. Johns ston and Arthur Burrall are the aspirants for his shoes, and they have been huuting up indorsements quite- diligently of late. The selection of cither of the gentlemen would be acceptable to the democracy of the couuly. First Ward Republicans The republican voters of the First ward met in Sir.

The Fnirltiro Counterfeiter Locked up In Davenport A Well Laid Scheme Successfully Operated. George Uakes, the counterfeiter who fled from Hock Island two weeks ago yesterday morning, when it became known that his pal, Wilbur F. Norris, had been arrested in Davenport for passing counterfeit money, which he had a hand in manufacturing, is locked up in a pot lice station at Davenport. Early yester day morning Chief Kcssler, of Davenpor t telephoned Marshal Eekhart that Hakes vo'.'U be in on the train from St. Louis and to look out for him. The marshal went to the C, B. & Q. depot, but no Hakes was there, but Conductor Willis informed him that Hakes had come up from St. Louis and left the train at Moline. The marshal sent Officers Brennan and Carey one) road in the direction . of Sloliue. while he and Chief Kessler, who had come over in the meantime, walked up the railroad track When they reached the government bridge, there stood Hakes with Bob Sol omon, who is also a well known river mrin. They were waiting, they Baid, for Officer Garlland, of Davenport, who was coming over to couduct HakeB to Daven port. "You needn't mind that," said Chief Kessler,'' "come with us," and the prisoner wasescorted to the armory. Then he related an interesting account of his capture, and how it was affected, to the marshal. He said Solouion had visited him at St. Louis, and had told him that $ 1(H) had been offered for his arrest, and that if he would come back, Officer Garlland who had put S61omon up to the scheme and he (Solomon) would receive there ward, wliich they would turn over to his (Hakes') family, who were in waul. The plan worked: Hakes was willjug lo stir render himself, if his family was to be cared for, and be come. Yesterday after noon he visited his wife and later in the day accompanied Ciiief Kessler to Daven port, where ho was locked up. Although the plan appeared lo be a cruel way of bringing the ftigulive to justice, it was a good one and was well worke and Hakes has shown an admirable qual ity in being willing to sacrifice himself up that his family might be provided for. The police of both cities have known Hakes' whereabouts ever since he went away. They traced him to Keokuk and St. Louis, but did not feel disposed lo en tail any expense in catching him. Strut egy was resorted lo and that brought him Matrimonial. llEOUAFF - t.KKCII. At the residence of the bride's parents in Drury township, by Rev. .1. S. Lulz Mr. Charles DcGraff, of Buffalo Prairie, Illinois, and Mrs. Liiurn Leech, of Mtisca. line, Iowa, were united in matrimony Nov. So. It was a very pleasant occasion to all persons present, a happy lillle wed ding party at which everyone felt that he was having an exceedingly pleasanl time. At exactly 12 noon the bride and groom were standing in front of the minister Inking the marriage vows. Mr, DcGrafT and wife soon go to Nebraska, where he owns a farm and where they expeet'to make their future home. Charlie will be very much missed in the community he has so long resided, but we all wish him ami his, much prosperity and happiness in the new home. II A VE KI.I NO -TIIOH l'MON. A happy wedding occurred at Milan Saturday night. It was the well known constable, Peter Heverling, who was united for life to Miss Hariet A. Tiiomas, of Davenport, Hev. Carlson performing the ceremony. About twenty members of O-Sau-ICee tride, order of Bed Slen, of this city, remembered their brother on this happy event and went out to celebrate it with him. After the ceremony and while the presents were being presented, Fred Appelquist, Sachem of the tribe, with a neat liltlo speech presented the groom with a mysterious looking bundle, as "a reminder of his future duties and respon sibilities," and Pete actually blushed as he unwrapped a' miniature pair of blue slippers. It w as a delightful affair all round. Those Horrid Lights. Il was last Thursday night Thanks giving, l'ho clock on the island had just struck 10. It was dark, very dark, and a pair of lovers were bidding good night at the gate; It was not the garden gate: it was the front gate. His arm was around her trim waist, her head rested lovingly on his shoulder. Suddenly there was a hiss in an electric lamp near by, and al though in the eighteenth part of a second four feet of sidewalk lay between the two, it was too late, for a couple of blocks away a sinful reporter, who had been feeling his way through the inky blackness, had "caught on." Perhaps certain parties can take advantage of this innocent little item and by becoming posted in regard to just what moment ihc flit will sh ine, can act accordingly. Will Win. By a judicious nomination at the cau cus tonight, the' democrats of Ihe First ward can be successful at the polls tomor row. The republican nomination is de cidedly weak, and would not make a dc sirable representative in the council. The democrats have several men who would make a strong race, and be acceptable to all classes if elected. Let the right man be brought forward. - Hot Dd. But Only injured. The Allot s created a wrong impres sion regarding the condition of Slyron Severencc. He was not killed outright in the railroad accident at Monmoulh re cently, but beyond a few bruises is unin jured. From the tone of the letter re ceived by Circuit Clerk Bowman, it would appear that his injuries were of a more serious nature. Bone In Six Months. That coil of hair on Ihe back of n head, dear lady.
