an unusually imposing nature. Ihe

Now, my comrades," said Mr.

lingering fear in the minds of some
of us that our country would forget

Let us not throw off the tinge of
sacred sadness that clusters about
Memorial day, but let it live as the
day of sweet remembrances of our
comrades whose lives went out that
this free government might be pre
served to coming generations. Let
monuments be erected to the patri
ot's memory. Let orator anil poet
chronicle his worthy deeds. And
when the marble slab no longer de
picts to our eyes his manly figure
when eloquence and song can no
longer charm us with the recital of
his noble qualities, coming genera
tions will speak of his wortli and be
inlluenced by his example. And to
those brave men who were arrayed
against us in that terrible conflict
and whose bodies are buried in this
beautiful cemetery, let us all unite
in saying: 'llest to their ashes and
peace to their souls.''"

Memorial Day at Port Ityron.
Tout Bvkos, 111., May 30. Today
witnessed the most auspicious deco
ration ceremonies that ever occurred
here. People came from nearly
every direction ami participated in
the beautiful custom of decorating
the graves of the nation's fallen he
roes. A long procession headed by
the Tort Byron band marchetl
through the principal streets in
honor of the day. The parade was
participated in by the A. F. & A. M.,
I. O. O. F., K. of P., Woman's Belief
eorps, G. A. It. and a large number
of school children. The business
streets were lined with handsome
decorations, there being but one un
patriotic citizen, and your corre
spondent blushes ti state that he was
a newspaper man. The Memorial
services wee held at the rink, where
a lengthy programme was carried out,
the principal address being delivered
by Rev. Aimer Harper. The graves
of the soldier dead in the different
cemeteries were strewn with gar
lands, and the day on the whole was
FitTco Saloon Fiht.
Lindsav Pitts' Fifth street saloon
in Davenport, was the scene of a
murderous cutting scrape last even
ing. It was about half past 10
o'clock when a dispute arose between
the bartender and Jim Jones, a roam
ing colored tough who shows up in
this city occasionally. The dispute
was ended by Jones, who drew an
ugly looking pocket knife from his
pocket and made a leap for the dis
penser of drinks. He made two des
perate lunges with his w eapon before
t he onlookers managed to separate
him from the victim of his murder
ous assault. The fnt time his knife
struck Heed in the mouth, cutting
through the lower lip and leaving a
strip of it about an inch long hang
ing only by a shred ot Ilesli. I lie
second blow st ruck Heed's upraised
right hand, nearly severing the
thumb. The thumb was broken at
the lower joint and the bone laid bare
by the knife blade. The assault re
suited in two permanently tlistigur
in" ami disabling injuries, anil that
the wounds were not nearer fatal in
their character was not the fault of
Jones. His intentions were nil
tloubtcdlv murderous enough.

minute and placed .Jones under ar

Albert Breecher, a fireman on the
west end of the Hock Island, met
with an unfortunate and peculiarly
sail accident last night. He was
taken sick on his engine yesterday
afternoon while coming towards his
homo, and exchanged places with a
brakenian and went back to the ca
boose and lay down. After leaving
Davenport he started to get ready to
leave the train when it reached this
city. He climbed on top of the ca
boose and started for the engine.
The train was just going on the
bridge ami Mr. Breecher was struck
by one of the iron girders ami
knocketl off the train. He fell be
tween the cars, the wheels passing
over his left foot. His right thigh
was also broken and-he sustained a
severe scalp wound besides other
bruises about the body. He was
brought to his home in this city at
1 y IS Third avenue, w here he was at
tended bv Drs. Plummer and Lude-
wig, who amputated all the toes of
the injured foot. His injuries are
such that he will be laid up for a
Ion; time, ami the case is made par
ticularly sad owing to the fact that
lie has a wife ami four children tie
pendant on him for support.
"Stiuire Mape Meets Severt Injiuy.
The venerable Ellsworth Mapes,
ex-police magistrate of Moline. sus
tained a bail fall in Mitchell & Lynde's
building t his morning, w hich will
probably result in permanent dis
ability. Mr. Mapes hail made a call
at an office on the third lloor of the
building, anil in descending the st airs
reached the lirst landing in safety.
Thinking however, that he was
in the hall lie made a misstep
and fell down the second (light. It
was readily seen that he was severely
injured, and being helped up hi: was
conveyed to lr. Ludewig's ollice
where an examination disclosed a
fracture of the right hip. Later lie
was taken to his home in Moline in
the ambulance from that city. He
is years of age ami owing to his
advanced years he will probably
never fully recover from the misfor

In the meantime Moore sold the

He was indicted on a charge of lar

The entertainment given at the
First M. E. church last evening for
the benelit of the Boys' Brigade was
quite largely attended ami was very
interesting. A programme of a lit
erarv and musical character was car
ried out. which was opened with a
march ami song by the Hoys' Brigade.
This was followed by little Virgil
Jacobs, the talented son of Prof. Ja
cobs and wife, in a number of recita
tions rendered in a manner that
would have done credit to a much
older persoti. Mrs. Jacobs also gave
a recitation which was followed by a
song bv Miss Seheulor, of Davenport.
Thtri'eerles.s quartette then favored
the audience with a vocal selection,
after which there came a violin and
guitar trio by Masters Mitsch, Sten
gle and Hengslcr. The programme
was closed with the rendition of
"Johnny Smoker" by a class from the
Christian Sundav' school. The
church had been handsomely decora
ted for the occasion ami the affair
netted about $100, ice cream and cake
being served in the parlors after the
programme had been finished.
