Moore premises on Moline avenue,

highwaymi.il was obliged to snap the
chain whie i held it, and he was pre
vented from continuing his search
through Moore's clot lies for other
valuables, which included a roll of
bills, by approaching footsteps, hear
ing which -.he robber compelled Mr.
Moore, at the point of the revolver,
to walk ba.-k into the yard a consid
erable distince, and he" then lied west
on Moline avenue. Mr. Moore
hurried to the house and telephoned
the police, and Capt. Kramer and
Officer Ktvel went up in the patrol
wagon, but thu highwayman had in
the meant me escaped,
Mr. Moore states that he was com
ing out of the gate in front of his
home, and had just stopped to light
a cigar, w hen the stranger whom "ho
had obsen ed coming down the ave
nue, planted a revolver in front of
him and commanded him to hold up
hi hands. The mandate was quick
ly obeyed as a matter of course,
u hereupon the man sieged his watch,
breaking the chain, and going
through Lis pockets, secured two sil
ver dollars, and further research was
interrupted by the approach of an
other eitii'.cn. The man is described

plexion and wearing a false beard,

About that hour the people about

A ltoyn Foot 1'ru lied.
Yesterday afternoon at about -iriiii
Willie Hounds, the 1 S-y car-old-son of
E. A. Hounds, had his foot crushed in
the C, H. I. & I. railway yards in
such a manner that it was found nec
essary to amputate it near the ankle.
Willie had been unwell during the
day and was not at school, and in the
aftertiouu he went down to the rail
road yards with some other little
fellows about his age. He had
boarded switch engine 51, which was
standing on the track near by and
sat in the cab talking to Engineer
Fezler. When the engine was about
to move he was told that he wouud
have to get off, as the rules forbid
boys riiling in the cab of the engine.
The boy proceeded to climb back
oer the tank of the engine and had
just reached the back end of the en
gine, which w as about to be coupled
on to a car. His foot was on the
draw-bar, and when the engine hit
the ear his left-foot slipped and went
between the bumpers crushing it in
fright; ul manner. The little fellow
was carried by sympathetic hands
into the Hock Island Fuel company's
ollice on Third avenue and Twenty
fourth street, and thence was taken to
his home on Twenty-lirst street, the
poor boy in the meantime bearing
his sufferings without a murmur, ex
cept when his mother's name was
mentioned, when he said. "Oh! poor
mother: this w ill break her up." Drs.
Harth. llollowbiish and Asay were
summoned, and they amputated the
foot, which the doctors found had
ex ery bone broken.

This is the second son of Mr. and
Mrs. Hounds' that has been injured bv
railroad trains, one having met with
misfortune in Moline three years ago
today, and from the effects of
which he died. Three weeks ago
today their little -y ear-old son
was buried, so that the family are
sorely afflicted. Willie is doing very
nicely today, and seems very bright
after his terrible experience.

i Iliey Make Auroras to Order.
Artificial miniature auroras of the
borenlis variety have been produced by
both De la Hive, the French savant, and
Lenstrom. the Swedish astronomer. In
Professor Lenstrom's experiments,
which were made in Finland, the pc:ik of
a high mountain was surrounded with a
coil of w ire, pointed at intervals w ith
tin nibs. The wire was then charged
with electricity, whereupon a brilliant
aurora appeared above the mountain, in
which spectroscopic analysis revealed
the greenish yellow rays so character
istic in nature's display of "northern
lights." St. Louis Republic.
Worse Thau Wirked.
If more people understood that any
appearance of haste or carelessness w:is
out of place in formal correspondence,
they would not use such expressions as
''many thanks" any more than the hard
ly less objectionable phrase, "thanks,"
in conversation, tiuch curtness is like
the old story, "Worse than wicked; it's
vulgar." Philadelphia Press.
The Tramp's Loyalty to an Ideal.
In one of his delightful essays Mr.
Lowell tells of a tramp whom for seven

him to get from Boston to Portland,

loyalty to an ideal." New York Tribune.
