panion Takes Her Departure.
WATCH AND VALUABLES GO WITH HER
ro! Iceman Guesses Riant and Tskn
Woman to Station, Where Watch
and Other Valuables Are
Recovered.
George W. Fillman of Akron, O., for many
years a well-known traveling man In Omaha,
came to Council Bluffs several days ago for
the purpose of trying to obtain possession
of his daughter, aged 15, and his son, sged j
12, who reside with their mother, FUlman's
divorced wife, In Omaha.
Negotiations looking toward his taking
the children back with him to Ohio .were
proceeding satisfactorily, at least so be
thought, when Fillman fell by the wayside.
Thursday at his former wife's home he met
a woman who gave the name of Mrs. Ada
Hunter and claimed to be tbe wife of a
barber. This woman Ingratiated herself Into
FUlman's good graces by pretending that
with the Influence she bad over Mrs. Fill
man she could easily secure the surrender
of the two children. Fillman was so grati
fied over the prospects of his mission to
Omaha being successful that he took Mrs.
Fillman and Mrs. Hunter out to bare a
good time, which meant the consumption of
a number of drinks.
Accompanied by the Hunter woman Fill
man returned .to Council Bluffs on a late
car Thursday night and registered at the
Metropolitan hotel as George W. Adams and
wife. At the suggestion of Officer Calla
ghan, who noticed the couple, Fillman left
the greater part of his money with the
clerk before going to his room.
A short while after Officer Hayes no
ticed the woman waiting for a car at the
Northwestern tracks and suspecting some
thing wrong took her to the city Jail. In
vestigation showed that she had robbed
Fillman of his watch and chain, gold eye
glasses and whatever money he had.
When the officers went to Flllman's room
at the hotel they experienced much diffi
culty In arousing him, and It Is thought be
bad at some time during the time In Omaha
been given knockout drops. He was taken
to police headquarters, and when the
woman was confronted with him she ad
mitted taking the money and .watch from
him and returned them. She was locked up
snd yesterday morning was fined $10.60,
which she promptly paid. Fillman was al
lowed to return to his hotel.
Fillman was married in Council Bluffs by
Justice John Jay Fralney .about sixteen
years ago. His wife shontly after the birth
of their second child leftJ.ilm. She later
secured a divorce from him, he not defend
ing it.

was round dead at tne same time Mrs.
Maud Lambert of . Marshalltown . was
poisoned shows the dog died of morphine.
Mrs. Lambert, It will be remembered, was
found dead in bed about ten days ago, the
indications pointing to poison. The offi
cers have little doubt that Mrs. Lambert
and the dog died through the same agency.
State Chemist Macy or Des Moines Is now
engaged in an analysis of the contents of
the dead woman s stomach. There ia little
doubt that the woman was murdered.
Jacob Stonebarger, ' once a prominent
farmer of Johnson county, lies in the
county Jail at Iowa City, accused of for
gery. Tie Is charged with forging his
brother's name. Tne prisoner gave O. V.
Baker of Lone Tree a note for JUS in
March, 1901. The paper was signed by the
maker and seemingly oy nis brother, A. j.
Stonebarger. a leading farmer,' whose good
reputation has endured, while Jacob's has
faded In the community. The note was
made for fifteen months, wherefore dis
covery of the alleged forgery was not
made until recently, when Baker tried to
collect the money from A. J. Stonebarger,
who declared that the signature was not
his. The imitation 1b a clumsy one. Squire
X. 8. Barber sent the accused man to Jail,
pending a hearing on July 11 a bona or fexft)
being unobtainable.
Rains and cold weather have' ruined the
prospects for a big watermelon and swept
potato crop on Muscatine island, which
was expected a month ago to furnish 2, INK)
cars of melons this season. The gardeners
like plenty of rain, but they do not want It
in BUCn mcriwiva quHiiiiiivn, CBirciMiiy Bi
companled by the cold weather which came
In June. It has caused the vines to rot at
the roots and now the old-time gardener
are extremely discouraged. One of fifty
one years' experience says It la the most
hopeless outlook In all his history on the
Island. He says not a half crop can be
harvested under any conditions now.
I'sually several gardeners are using their
Irrigation plants freely by this time of the
year. Now they wlxh they could work them
the other way and take the water out of
the ground. Irish potatoes are also ex
pected to be a disappointment, as they are
becoming water soaked. Cabbage Is' the
only crop doing well, and It may be spoiled
by too rapid growth.

PROBLEM OF FEEDING THEM IS SERIOUS
Dee Moines and Coon' Rivers at a
Stand and Relief is Expected
oon Inlcas More Rain
'. Fails. '
(From a Staff Correspondent)
DES MOINES, July 1L (Special.) Hun
dreds of homeless persons spent lsst night
In public parks, In tents or unhoused, or on
roofs, snd arose at daylight this morn
ing, only to find that while there bad been
a slight' rectdence In the waters of tho
Des Moines snd Coon rivers, It was so
slight as to give no Immediate relief. The
city and county officials hsve gone to
work on relief measures and are organ
ized tor taking care of the homeless people
until they 'can get back Into their bouses
again.
The city has converted Its former small
pox hospital Into a lodging bouse for the
homeless and the 'city ball and Jail have
been' filled with cots. These can accom
modate but a small portion of those who
need shelter,' however, and tents are being
distributed at the schoolhouse yards and
parks.
It Is believed the situation in the flooded
district cannot be materially relieved for
several days and that when the water
finally reaches Its former chsnnel an epi
demic ' of malaria and typhoid will pre
vail. The water Is blsck and foul. It Is
filled with overturned houses, garbage, car
casses of dead' animals and other debris.
It spreads out over more than a mile of
territory through the lower portion of the
city, formerly oecuped by houses.
Drowned While Out In Boat.
Thomas . Crooks, a .man about 40 years
of age, was drowned this evening. He and
two women were out In a boat, which was
overturned by the current. The women
were resoued, but Crooks could not be
reached. He was well known as a saloon
keeper snd promoter of sports and had
many friends. .
The estimate, of losses varies greatly.
The additional damage done last night
brings the actual damage possible up to
$200,000, but this will cover all of the
losses. Tbe business houses have been
Idle and In the wholesale district but little
can be done for eome time.
In the neighborhood of 260 tents have
been rented by Mayor Brenton. This num
ber was augmented by the addition of fifty
belonging to the Iowa National guard,
which were offered by Governor Cummins.
The tents are placed, at the different parks
throughout the city. The Children's park
near the First street bridge la dotted with
the white canvas bouses, as is Franklin
square snd Governor square on the East
sldft. . To these tents the people are sent
' after,., thai. . have, been. fed. . Policemen are
in charge of tbe tents and they are placing
bedding in each pne as fast as it Is possible-
In- addition to- this all the schoolhouses
on the southeast, , bottom which are not
under r water have, been .appropriated by
the homeless. ,v; .
Feed 3Pebpl at Jail. ,
'ialler Sn7otVl has fed over' ISO persons
since yesterday noon. These people go to
the police ; statlpn,.- .where the. big-hearted
Jailer, takes them. In charge and adminis
ters te their physical want, so far as food
is concerned. The people, .in most cases
women sad. children, will hereafter be sent
to the supply, depot, and thence to .their
tents.-
Tbe police are. well-nigh exhausted. For
over thirty-six, .hours they ..have ..been od
duty. . Yet sot . one failed to appear , this
morning when told to continue on the
Southslde., The ambulance has been on
duty for over forty-eight hours, and Driver
She this morning resembled a shadow.
One of the ambulance horses died from ex
haustion at 10 o'clock and the other Is In
a bad .condition.. '
ihe. Great Western and .Keokuk ft West
ern roundhouses are completely submerged
and neither road can cross tbe river, owing
to. washouts and destruction of bridges.
The Great Western can haul no freight,
but Is maintaining Its passenger service by
transferring passengers across tbe river
by means bf omnibuses.
At S o'clock the Raccoon and Des Moines
rivers were apparently at a standstill.
The' Des Moines - had declined but six
incbes from the highest mark during the
flood and the Raecooa had apparently de
clined even less.-
Estimate of Losses,
The following is an estimate of direct
losses In the factory district:
Des Moines Clay company $10,000
Des Moines Poultry company J.ooo
Intra Transfer comnanv 6.000
Schmitt & Henry-Manufacturing Co.. ,0)e
American Lubrloator company......... 6.000

Crystal OH company I,0n0
Paragon Refining company 2,000
Purlnton Swing company oflu
ThA tAiinerv 2ti0
Des Moines Wagon company 600
Total $S8.TO0
The actual damage to property Is of course
nothing compared to the damage caused by
the suspension of business. In the manu
facturing district below Elm street there Is
not a factory turning a wheel, everything
la at a standstill, rendered so by the high
water. . The packing plant Is practically tied
up by tbe Inability of the Des Molnss Union
to get Its cars to and from the plant. Super
intendent Wagner stated this morning that
the track leading to tbe packing house, the
Iowa Can factory and all tbe factories in
thst locality are under water and It Is im
possible to trsnsact business with this state
of affairs.
Even if the floods recede rapidly it will

people of Glenwood had agreed to pay the
damages for the new route, but this Is
denied, by ths representatives of the city

In Glenwood as the people of Glenwood are

Life is a duel
In the dark with
disease. One false step, one mistake,
and the attack comes swift and sudden.
The mistake which commonly opens the
way for an attack by disease ia neglect
of the symptoms of stomach trouble.
When eating is followed by undue full
Bess, belchings, sour or bitter riaings,
etc.. disease is attacking the stomach.
The best way to frustrate such an at
tack is to use Dr. Pierce's Golden Med
ical Discovery. It cures diseases of the
stomach and other organs of digestion
and nutrition, and makes the body
strong and healthy.

A YERMONT , LADY'S
Desperate Fight for Life.
Mrs. Nathan Heal say:
Paiiie's Celery
Compound
Sarcd Ms From the Instne Hospt
tal as Welt at Cured My
Rheumatism.
There never was a remedy so highly
recommended ss Psine's Celery Compound.
There never was a remedy In such uni
versal demand. It is popular and prized In
tens of thousands of homes, because It
makes sick people well.
Palne's Celery Compound hss saved thou
sands from nervous prostration and col
lapse; It has effected wonderful cures In
kidney and liver complaints; its victories
over rheumatism and neuralgia have com
manded the attention and admiration of our
best physicians. . It has cured disease
when everything else has failed.
Mrs. Nathan Deal, a well known lady of
Gallup s Mills, Vt.,i writes ss follows: "For
ten months before I commenced taking
Psine's Celery Compound I could not put
my foot on the first round of my chair,
only five Inches from the floor. I had
nearly lost the use of my left side, and I
could not lift a pound weight with the left
hand without danger of dropping It. Many .
times I would lift something at the table,
only to drop It. I had a pressure in the
top of my head and a pain at the base of
the brain, which would leave me so nerv
ous that I used to tell my husband I
would surely go craxy. I could not keep
still at night, and Sundays were just awful
to me. I found my whole system pros
trated, and It took a long time to build
up my poor, wornout nerves. . I think that
Palne's Celery Compound saved me from
the Insane Hospital, as well as cured my
rheumatism." '
