About two weeks ago a fellow who
looked like his forte might bo that of
artful dodper to prevent a job of work
running against him, was in town and
told numerous stories about his prow
ess as a detective. According to his
statements ho was a genuine Ilawko

lie told Fitzpatrick he had been in
the detecti vo business for fifteen years
and never had let a man get away
lie carried two or throe old saw
blades out of a common wood saw,
which ho explained were used as dis
guises to keep people from viewing
him with suspicion. One evening
while down the avenue ho was over
taken by one of Itobert Sherwood's
small boy9 and he struck up a conver
sation right away. When he got
near Shv w od's house, he proposed
to borrow 2o cents of the boy, and the
little fellow thought he was to be
robbed by a highwayman, and he set
up a yell that brought his father to
tho scene in a moment. The fellow
explained that no harm was meant
and ho was allowed to go
his way. lie was not seen
here again until yesterday, when he
came into town and this time he said
his name was "Will McCurdy,a brother
of Dan McCurdj', and that he lived at
Manly. He did not seem to bo play
ing the sleuth to any great extent,
but he was detective enough to find
some red liquor which he got outside
of and had to be taken to jail.
This morning he was lined $5 and
costs, and, having no money, he will
have to board it out at Colonel Mc
Uride's hostlery. 'ihe fellow says he

time he was accused of stealing a roll
of butter from Bach's store. He stood
trial today, but the proof was too
strong, and he was convicted. As he
was so full that he didn't know a roll
of butter from a head of cabbage, the

Return of the "Floaters."
Fred Black and Charles Dabb re
turned home this morning from their
four months' jaunt down the river.
They started out the ISth of Septem
ber in the sundown, having first taken
off the engine, and drifted with the
current. They made numerous stops
and spent their time chiefly in hunt
ing and fishing.
They only got a few miles below
Memphis, on the Mississippi, when
they sold their boat, and after work
ing for some time they returned home
by train. Charley Dabb was taken
sick a few days before they started
north, and their return trip was de
layed some on that account.

Wanted to Sell Their Itodies.
"We want to sell our bodies to the
university." Thus spoke a young man

City Republican. At the entrance of
the doctor the young people sprang
apart, for they had evidently been
wrapped in each other's embrace.
The professor pressed questions and
learned that the couple lived in Mus

willing to die together, closely

Haddock. The venerable secretary

tastefully attired young woman of
twenty-three made their proposition,
but he managed to ejaculate, '"We
can't pay till we get the bodies."
Much disappointed, the couple went
away and when last seen the young
man was pawning off his overcoat for
$2.50 to get money enough to secure
passage back to Muscatine. The
