A Hervaat IH'e F.prlrre tker

Agnes Johnson, a domestic in the fam
ily of C. A. Row, 2315 Seventh avenue,
had a peculiar experience this morning.
She was leaving the premises where she
was employed, with a bundle and a cake
to go to Black liawk's watch tower to
spend the day, when a buggy drove up,
in which were seated two young .jnen.
and who, informing ber that they sur
mised she was going to the tower, told
her it would ba an hour before another
train went out and that they were going
out there and v ould be pleased to drive
ber out. The irirl thoughtlessly accepted
the invitation and entered the buggy,
which bad not 'teen driven far when she
observed that the was being driven east
on Seventh avenue instead of west in the
direction of the tower. She asked what
that meant and was told by one of the
males that they were going to the tower
by a new and shorter road. This aroused
the girl's suspit ions at last and she asked
to get tut. She was shocked at being
told that she could not and then becom
ing desperate, the attempted to leap out.
One of the meti seized her dress, but she
was determiner, and though the garment
was torn almost from her. succeeded in
getting out, an breathlessly ran back to
Mr. II. R. Sue low's Douse to eive the
alarm. The men drove off with her cake
ana bunoie. I be eirl probably bad a
narrow escape from being the victim of
some outrageous purpose on the part of
the men. They have not vet been cap
tured.
The woods about Rock Island are full
of ugly tramps. A few days ago a lady
from Davenport while driving to Big Isl
and where her family is camping, was at
tacked by a hi;; brute near the watch
lower, and he was about to throw a sharp
pointed rock at her when she screamed
and assistance came to her relief. The
villain fled.
This mornirg Officer Brennan spotted
the mouse, colored horse, road cart and
two boys watted in Princeton. They
were driving up Moline avenue and the
officer conducted them to 'he station to
await advices from Princeton. The boys
gave their naries as Fred Bryant and
Eddie McDufly. and stated that Bryant's
brother. V. A. Bryant, was the man who
wanted them as they had taken his horse
and started west to see the country
They bad beei to Muscatine and were on
their way bsck to Moline. They had
left home Sunday night and had dropped
a note to Princeton here on their wav
down, saying they were enjoying them
selves and would eventually return
Bryant said h s father was dead and he
lived with lis brother on a farm.

had come up from Alabama to

had abundance of clothes, provisions and

Tbey don't look like boys who would do
anything very desperate or very wicked.

Tonight occurs the first annual meet

officers for lb.) ensuing year will take

Tbe idea of paving is spreading. There
is now a movement which has taken
pretty deep root in favor of paving Sec
ond avenue from Fourteenth Btreet to
Seventh street with asphalt and making
a boulevard out of that portion of the
thoroughfare. A Boston firm has made
a proposition to put in the pavement for
tbe same price as brick and let it be paid
for in five annual payments, and it is
quite likely that the property holders in
that vicinity wiil petition the council to
order it by special assessment. If tbey
do, it will be done, as the present munici
pal body is in sympathy with tbe ener
getic and enterprising spirit that is carry

A Mercer Cauaty Barcta.
An Aledo telegram gives a part of the
career of a Mercer county woman whose
matrimonial alacrity was alluded to some
time ago, and whose last adventure made
her the wife of Mr. I-aac Artz, a man
well known throughout the lower end of
Rock Island county. The telegram allud
ed to says:
The woman's history is a remarkable
one and is causing a sensation here as it
is being brought to light. She was mar
ried more than twenty years to David
Ramsey, a farmer of this county. After
some time, during which two children
were born, tbey were divorced. Mr. Ram
sey subsequently moving to New York.
Mrs. Ramsey soon married a man by the
name of Coleman, living with him a num
ber of years. Mr. Coleman died suddenly
about three years ago. and many neigh
bors suspected that his wife bad poisoned
him. She remained in this county until
last May. when Isaac Artz. well known in
this vicinity as "The Prophet," became
infatuated with her. Mrs. Coleman was
very willing to marry Ariz, out be told
ber the Lord would not allow him to
marry her while her divorced husband
lived.
About this time Mrs. Coleman opened
a correspondence with her first husband.
Mr. Ramsey, who resided in Elmira. N.
Y., which resulted in her going back to
Elmira. About the 1st of May she and
Mr. Ramsey were remarried. 1 be sec
ond day after the wedding Mr. Itimsey
was taken violently ill and died, declar
ing that she had poisoned him. Mm
Ramsey, as soon as the funeral was over,
came back to Aledo, and in twenty one
days after Ramsey's death, married Artz.
bo now had no objections.
Mr. Ramsey's body was taken up and
arsenic was found in tbe stomach. As
soon as this was known the coroner at
Elmira telegraphed the facts here, and
Mrs. Artz was arrested. A requisition
will he asked for. Tbe authorities ex
pert to have Coleman's body exhumed
and examined as soon as possible.
A dispatch last night from Elmira, N.
., contains the following additional
particulars of the same case:
The jary in the David Ramsey case.

married to Isaac Artz, a wealthy resident
of Aledo, three weeks from tbe day of
Ramsey s death, she is now under ar
rest in that city. Tbe case has been
turned over to District attorney Denton.

It may turn out that Rock Island did
not miss so much after all when it failed
to secure the location of tbe big Eidd
distillery. Read tbe following special
from LaSalle to today's Chicago -Yn?.-
George Hollingswortb, resident secre
tary of the Standard Spirit Refining com
pany. and a nephew of U. W. Kidd, of
New York, the moving spirit of the
LaSalle distillery scheme, says that the
unfinished buildings of tbe company
with all tbe machinery and apparatus
now on the ground, are for sale. The
city of LaSalle donated tbe ground on
which the buildings stand at a cost to the
purchaser of 15.000, with the under.
standing that the distillery should be
operated at least five years or the money
should be refunded to tbe subscribers
There are a number of unfinished
contracts, and tbe contractors are
much dissatisfied at tbe sudden ter
mination of their jobs, claiming
that tbey will lose money in conse
quence unless the company sees fit to
make them safe. These matters of
finance do not appear to have been re
ferred to Mr. Kidd a most recent instruc
tions to his manager.
In an interview today, Mr. Hollings
worth said that the whisky trust bad the
machinery, stills, etc., of fifty distilleries
now piled up in warehouses in Peoria.all
having been taken out of different plants,
so that they could not be operated with
out refitting should anything happen to
tbe trust. He suggested that if tbe trust
should go to pieces, those members to
whom tbe dismantled distilleries fell
would be out in the cold, while tbe other
fellows would reap a harvest before tbey
could get into position to resume busi
ness.
