In the streets of the city.
It requires yery little nrgument to con
vince the most skeptical of the feasibi ity
of the scheme. The man of even inf er
ior ability in the way or clutching a new
idea easily retains this one, and ence
turning it over convinces him that he has
got something good.
You fellows who are always truiab

named and the houaea numbered -vith
good plain placards, ought to put an
other string to your bow, and advtcate
the naming of all country roads and lanes
and the posting of each man's name in

It was a Davenport business man who
thus umbOBomed himself to a Veiiucrat

taken the dilemma by the horns and gone
out to him up.
'And I tell you right now." acid he,
"that I wouldn't do it again for twice
what I got out of it."
It was a moving tale he told, of perils
oft by field and flood, how he droe for
milea on one road when he shouln have
driven in tbe opposite direclirn on
another, how be inquired of four men
who didn't know the man and of ore who
knew him but dido.: know where he
lived, of another one who gave bun direc
tions tbat got him lost in tbe woo Is and
how he finally found his way ou:. He
told how be let down bars and let (ut the
hogs while he was leading Lis horse
through, and bow he chased tht botes
until be wished there were a p-rsonal
devil and tbat he had the loan of I im for
about ten minutes in the shape o' a big

of these old fashioned woodei-hinge

bad it half opened and scared hie horse,
and bow be had to wait fifteen minutes
until a man came along with a load of
potatoes and nelped bim put it up main.
Then he told how be followed a t im trail
across a pasture lot and bow be took a
wood road down a hill steeper than a to
boggan slide and a dumMte rougher.
After this be fought his way, an inch at
a time, through a cordon of 'coon dn's
up to tbe door of a cabin, where be learned
from a woman that the nearest wty to tbe
place where be was going was to go bnck
to tbat same gate again and thi n f 1 er

and Martha Kahlke.

What came very nearly proving a ter
rible fatility occurred at the residence of
Mr. J. J. Kahlke, 201 Fourth avenue,
yesterday morning. Mr. and Mrs.
Kahlke's daughters, the Misses Martha
and Emma, failing to arise at the cus
tomary time, a member of the family
went to their room, and upon opening
the door was surprised to find Martha
lying on the floor in an almost entirely
unconscious condition, while blood was
emitting from ber nostrils. In the bed
lay her sister Emma, wholly unconscious,
and breathing laboriously. The room
was densely impregnated with hard coal
gas. The family was aroused with all
possible haste, and a messenger hurriedly
dispatched for Dr. Paul, who at first con
sidered the condition of both young ladies
extremely critical, but after some time
consumed in efforts to resuscitate them.
they rallied and finally recovered entirely.
Today they are well as could possibly be
The M isses Kahlke tlept in a room
with an anthracite burner, and while it
was shut off very carefully so tbat no gas
might escape, the theory is tbat the heavy
atmosphere of the night prevented the
proper draught and the g asses which
should have escaped into tbe chimney
flue, were forced into the room.
Neither of the ladies can tell much of
their sufferings, but tbe indications are
that Martha became distressed with the
inhalation of tbe deadly gas and arose.
but fell swooning upon the floor.and tbat
it was in this manner that she sustained
the injuiy which caused her nose to bleed.
Tbe doctor thinks that in less than two
hours more both the ladies would have
been beyond the power of medical skill
to revive them.

quarters, as the proprietors are to re
move all the building, and cannot pro

goods are now going at ruinous ratea.
