THE BKEAK IN THE DAM.

The bretk in the coffer dam at the Mo
line pool puts a check to work for this
seaserj, so far as the government it con
cerned, but it wb very nearly fiBiebed,
anyway, and consequently the outcon e
will not be as serious as it might have
sen under other conditions. The Mo
line Dispatch, speaking of the dam break
and the flooding of the pool, rema.ks:
This will doubtless be a source of saiis
factien to the ice men having houses on
Sylvan island, but. it is unfortunate for
the city aaJ for Davis & Co., as it wi.l
seriously interfere with, if it does not
prevent the completion of the work of lay
ing the new inlet pipe for the waterworks.
About 8;30 Mr. Mtrryman, the bridpe
guard, observed that the ice at tbe bridge
was being flooded. Before noon the
water had risen to euch an extent that it
covered the bottom of the pool as far od
as Sixteenth street, though many of the
gates in the water power wall were open.
Investigation shows that a section of
the dam. probably between 75 and 100
feet in length, had been moved from its
positien, opening a pap some 15 feet
wide, though this is partially obstructed
by a portion of the dam. Through this
gap at noon the water was rushing in a
torrent, that would very likely soon widen
tbe break. To obviate this, orders were
issued to have the gates in the water wall
The electric drills has been removed
from the pool, their work having been
completed as nearly as could be done
with the present appropriation. There
remained, however, some work to bp
done by hand driilers and some dirt anil
rock to be removtd from the pool. A
lot of the cars that have been used in
this work are now surrounded with
Davis & Co. had completed the blast
ing and excavating for the new inlet pipe
Three hundred feel of sewer pipe has
been laid at the north end, where it was
expected that the pipe would have to be
removed in a yetr or two. when the chan
Del is widened still further, and abnut
10() feet of iron pipe had been laid. The
entire work ciuld have been completed
in two or three days, had not the water
interfered with the work.
A Hill-ktonn Itivennan Heart
Capt. Charles E. Si-ncerbox, of Mis
sissippi steamboat fame, died at the
Merchants' hotel at St. Paul last week of
heart d sease, aged 6 years. At mid
night the night e'erk respondtd to a sum
mon from Lis room, and found him suf
fering with a terrible pain about tLe
heart. His wants were relieved in every
way, but the pain kept up at frtquent in
tervals, and at 4 o'clock he expired.
Capt. Sencerbox went to Minnesota wi!h
his brother, Cspt. J. W. Sencerbox, of
Sh&kopee, in 1854. For many years te
was captain of various of the large side
wheel packets plying tetween St. Paul
and St. Louis. He retired from steam
boating 12 years ago, and since then has
resided with his family on a large farm
at Big Stone which he owned. A quar
ter of a certury ago no man on the Mis
sissippi river was better known than
Capt- Sencerbox. He commanded pack
ets in tbe White Collar line, DiVidsoL's
line, and the Minnesota Packet company's
fleet. He retire ! from the river years
ago, and has been half forgotten even by
the people who made trips with him.
though he wis well remembered by river
men here anj eUewbere in this vicinity.

The Scott Medical Institute
which has just closed its work
of free treatment has
been a success.so far as can be
proved by the numbers of
afflicted people, who have
thronged the Institute daily,
many of whom found relief
after the first treatment. This
is a medical institute coming
to our city well recommended,
the physicians having received
their diplomas from the best
medical colleges in the United
States as well as in foreign
countries, and it has comc to
stay as can be proved by the
contracts they have made
which are without exception by
the year. The physicians have
decided to place the price of
treatment within the reach of
the poor as well as the rich.
They treat all diseases with
marked success with their
