The Davenport Bnslness Men's Association
Adopts Resolutions Relative to the
World's Fair Advertising Troject.
At tbe regular monthly meeting of the
Davenport Business Men's ai-S'ciatioa
last e7ening the report of the adver ising
comnittee was submitted, favoring de
voting the mtj r part of the advertising
fund this year, t.nd much more, to tbe
Trt City Improvement league aud the ex

ization in its deserving t Sorts to focus
attention on this locality during the
World's fair. Tbe recommendation took
Altogether the best plan for attracting
attention to Davenport and locality and
of interesting possiole investors in the
opportunities for business, as your com
mittee believes lies in the direction of
taking advantage of tbe World's fair and
tbe visitors and exhibitors drawn to Chi
cago this year. There is re many reasons
why Davenport is favored beyond tbe
average western city, it has tne missis
sippi river, an object of interest in itself;
tbe national arsenal, aud tbe government
canal woik, with a population larger
than any other center between' St. Louis
and St. Paul.
In accord with a movement s'arted la
this association, the city councils and
representative business men of Uaven-
P'trt, Rock Island nd Moline bave ai
re idy moved to i fl ct an org tc z ition .
Tbe object of this is to iuvite aet-irenlile
strangers to come and see us, and wuen
tbey come to show them propr atten
tion. This. in brief, is tbe object wcich
tbe advertising committee urgently rtco
inmeuds .nere be appropriated all avail
able funds. By tbin it is intended th it
not only the amount commonly set aside
forgentril advertising, but as much in
addi ion as possible, be devoted to tbis
one objict. which is much in its nature
and nearness that ic may be called a fa

THE END OF AN ENERGETIC LIFE.
Little Etta Wilson Arrives Home From
Little E ta Wilson, the lO-tesr old
daughter of Mrs Jennie Wilson, on
Twenty-lhira street, who through tbe
kindness of Mrs G A. Castleman, whs
sent to the Children's bospiiu! at St. Louis
a year and a-half ago for treatment, ar
rived home this m iming entirely cured
Little Etta had been affected since baby
hood with hip disease and until the time
mentioned could scarcely wain. The
limb had not grown any for some time,
and hut for tbe fact that Mrs Castleman's
attention was attracted to tbe case, the
little girl would ndoubtedly have been
a cripple for life. Through her generos
ity, however, little Etta was sent
to St. Louis, where with tbe most
skillful treatment she was permanently
cured. Tbe little girl was delighted
to return home, though to an A owns re
porter this morning she told bow kindly
she had been treated and added that she
would never forget ber benefactress.
Tbe little girl's mother was over
whelmed with eladness at her return and
when she witnessed the changes that had
taken place tears of joy welled her
eyes despite her Sorts to conceal them.
When the lee Breaks I p .
"From present indicationns we will
have the largest spring rise of tbe Mis
sissippi we have bad for many years," re
marked an old river man to a Davenport
L.'ader reporter. "To prove the relia
bility of the indications these facts pre
sent themselves te view: First, the river
contains an unusual amount of ice;
second, the entire north and northwest
is covered with snow, which, when
melted, will find its way to the river.
Therefore, it can readily be seen that a
big rise is a foregone conclusion. When
tbe big thaw arrives you will see the
great river assume immense propor
tions. Did you ever think what dan
ger there would be if a sudden thaw
should set in? Suppose now it should
thaw heavily for a few days. All the
water from the snow and ice would
certainly cause a big rise in the river;
then the ice would break up and out
whit then? It would probably take
a'ong the bridges with a crash, and do
much other damage. There is danger
in it this year. I see people along the
Rock river are preparing to avert any
danger from a sudden thaw and will
U3e dynamite to disgorge the ice where
there is danger of doing damage.
Wouldn't it be a Rood idea for tbe
people along the Mississippi to prepare
too? Dynamite could be used to good
effect in breaking the ice away above
Morris Nash, who was arrested jester
day on complaint of Mies Mary Hen
nessy charging him with a serious crime,
was taken bebore Magistrate Wivill to
day and pleaded not guilty. The trial of
the case was at once began and is now in
progress. Tbe court room was crowded
almost to suffication by the usual crowd
of loiterers waiting for racy develop
ments. The case will probably be con
cluded this evening.
Mrs. Delia M. Jones, Granville, N.
writes: "I have the highest praise to
give to Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup. We
have used it in our family for five years
with the best effects."
The Final Summons this Morning Career
of the Deceased In Rock Island where he
Laid the Foundation for Making a For
tune in Chicago Death or Stephen A.
Harchall The Fnneral Announcement.
A telegram from J. C. Adams to bis
friend T. H. Thomas, received at noon
today, announced the death in Chicago
at 3 o'clock this morning of Mr. Adams'
father-in-law, O. J. Dimick, the former i
well known citizen of Rck Island.
Death was the result of a gradual break
ing town of tbe entire system that had
been manifesting itself for some time.
In fact Mr. Dimick had never fully ral
lied from tbe shock of his only son's
tragic death in Rock Island a few years
ago, and since when hs had been failing
Mr. Dimick was born at Waterloo,
eneca county, N. Y., in 1831, and
when a child he came with his father to
Illinois. Tbey first settled in Mercer
county in 1837 and in 1850
Rnck Island became his home.
With tne exception of a few - years
spent prospecting in the west, here his
life was spent until bis recent removal to
Cbicago. Eir'y in life he embarked in
tbe livery business in Rock Island which
he carried on for a great many ye rs, at
times mailing extensive purchases of real
esta'e, thfi old fair groui di baing among
otbe.r property flline into his hands
About 12 yea:8 ago he becarr.e interested
in Chicago realty. His investments there
proved exceedingly fortunate; in fact
somo f the best business locations in tbe
city ctmc into h's possession. By judi
Ct us management of this property he
SDon gathered together a com fort able for
tune. Included in his holdldgs was con
siderable valuable property in Rock Isl
and, and the last act of the deceased was
to donate to Commissioner Jackson, of
Spencer square, a lot to be disposed of in
such manner as would insure the erection
out of tbe proceeds of tbe Black Ilawk
statue in Spencer square.
Mr. Dimick was a memb r of the Rock
Island city, council from 18G5 to 1863
He was a mtn who always entertained
decided views on all nutters of public
interest and was naturally energetic an
active in ali that be undertook. He was
scrupulously honest in ali his transac
lions and straightforward and outspoken
in all things.
He leaves, with his wife, three daugh
tsrs. Mrs. L. D. Snider, Mrs. J. C.
Adams and Miss Bessie Dimick, all of
Toe remains will probably be brought
to Kock Island for interment.
Stephen A. Marschall.
Stephen -A. Marschall expired at his
home, 1323 Fourth avenue, at 4:30 this
morning from the effects of nervous pros
tration with which he was stricken four
months ago, and for three months he bad
been confined to his bed.
Mr. Marschall was born in Pjsen. Ger
many, on Christmas day, 1844 and came
t America in 1861, locating first at Gen
eseo, and a year later coming on to Rock
Island, which has been his borne since
He embarked at once in the tailoring
business and fr 25 years carried it on
successfully. Then for three years he
was in the liquor business, and for tbe
past two years he was a traveling sales
man for the Davenport Woolen mills.

ago, and other sill ctions have since be

hastened the end. He is survived by
children: Stephen, Jr., El ward, Albert,
Anna, Lillie and Minnie.
Mr. Marschall was a charter member
of Camp 309, Modern Woodmen of
