T£e two gentlemen went ia.lo Identify the man who rob bed 1 LoulR of his pile Sometime ago.snd their mission waa successful according . lo.theChicago-Journal. ...The felJo was to appear tfiia morning and is slat ed for the criminal court in ten days There ia np question but the right man is now in the toils, but there is bat lit tie hope for Kaione to get any of his money back, for the criminal had bu 014 on his person at the time of hia arrest. 4 The Chicago Journal says there waa, a dramatic scene la tbe squad room of the Central police headquarters this morning when two Italians, one of whom ia accused of swindling the —other-out of—the— savings--of—fourteen years of hard labor, were brought face to face. . Last September, Louie Rainone, fruit dealer of Sterling, III., waa visited , by one of his countrymen, who gave the name of Barrone Antonio, and per- auaded himto invest hia saving8,@800,ln ecftne property in this city. To proper ly consummate the deal Rainone was induced, he says, to bring his money with him tp Chicago. ' He did this, and was taken by Antonio to a saloon on North Clark street, where they \tfere met by Ira Francisco. The property which the men described, did not suit the Sterling man, and he started to go home. - Before going Rainone says he was given a handkerchief in which to wrap up his —money.—When- he-reached home he duplicated, and the oae which he had contained nothing but paper. Last Saturday a policeman from the Harrison street station found'two men struggling on the sidewalk on. State street, while a third was running away, He arrested the pair, but at the police station one declared that he had been swindled by the man he had attacked. That led to'an investigation, and it was found that the prlsoner.who gave his name as John Forald, was wanted In several cities on charges of swindling Italians. He was sent to the Central police headquarters to be lock-ed up, and this morning his alleged 'Victim came in from Sterling to see if 3ie could identify him. When the prisoner was led up from •the cell-room Rainone advanced' and took him by the hand. ' "How do you-doy-Baldihe-swintUed- man. But the prisoner acted the part which 'the police say he has been affecting t faltering- 'He pretends to be an, and, to~Hl did not understand what the Italian said. When he caw his advances repelled Rainone burst forth in a perfect itorrent of abuse. He called the pris-. oner all the names which he knew in Italian and all those which he bad learned in his residence in this country. He declared that his name was Antonio and that he would see that he went to the penitentiary. GEN. POST'S DAUGHTER WEDS. . A.

R/Hendricks has re toraed from Ottawa wher^s h© has be*n in attendance at the meeting o the Supervisors of the State. He Bays that there were about two handret fifty delegates present and that the meetings were intensely Interesting and instructive.-Mrr HendrickS Is o1 the opinion that these meetings should be more fully attended from all parts of the State, for they are of inestlma ble value. This Is the tenth meeting of the kind and never before has there been a representative there from White- eidecounty.. The next meeting will be held in Rock Island and it Is hoped that many of the Supervisors from this county will be in attendance. While Mr. Hendricks was In Ottawa he took palns^ tpjmake . a great jmany inquiries sad-he -h»S:^ returned-chock full of good ideas which will be of ben eflt to the county. The delegates were taken to the LaSalle county farm. It is one^of the finest in the State. The business in that county Is in charge of forty-nine Supervisors, While here we have but twenty-four. The cost of the help amounts to 3 little over 84,000 a year. There are seventy-four incurable patients; wo have here but fourteen. The .matrons in charge of the wards receive $15 a month. The most successful form of punishment Is duck- ng—it Is used there exclusively. It is perfectly harmless, but it is feared by he patients more than anything else. They will remember it much longer that they will the most severe beating. The insane women do all of the washing t pr-themsel yea ^nd^iac^the. coiinlyTalnd the Insane poor dp all of ,he sewing, thus reducing thv expense onsiderably, • In this county it.costs $2,23 a .week for the support of each Inmate of the county house, while in Jersey 'county he expense Is but ninety cents. In Jackson county the farm ia rented for $400a year and the', renter, Is paid .wenty-flve cents a day for .each inmate. A supervisor from Cedar itated that any family can live on ten cents a day per capita. He also said ihat from fifty to sixty per cent, of .hose who depend on the county^ for a ivlng are impostors. They will con- coct.all sorts of.schemes to/got out- of work. . ':... . '• _.• • •'.;,''••'. .f'l\] . The Road and Bridge Committee recommended that the.legislature, pass he stubble bill. This bill is for the well aa farmers.' The committee .also ecommends that towns applying for ounty aid in the building of bridges, n order to obtain such assistance, orty cents on each $100 of the assessed r alue, instead of twenty cents, as is now the law, A epeak'er from Ogle county advoca- ed the establiahing,of a stone pile ia ach town. He says in hlrf town this ilan has been adopted and that it is iminently successful. U all the tramps were put to work in this manner, they would soon be wiped from the face of he earth. England's roads are, built and kept up iu this way. The gentleman from Ogle thinks _he Jiaa-found- he solution, of the tramp problem. Probably the finest and most inter* qsting address of the meetings was that if Prof, Johnson, of Indiana, Presi- tent of the United (States Association f Charities. He is an eloquent talker, is well posted, having studied the sub: ect for years, and bis subject matter was intensely interesting. He says hat Wisconsin and Michigan have blved the problem of keeping tbe in- urable insane by the colony'plan. The asylums of these States are models of lerfection. .Small farms are distribut- d throughout the States and the inmates almost pay their own '„ expenses. ?he cost of Jteeping the insane runs rom 8150 to $300 a year each; the to- al cost in. the United States ie $80,000,- XX). There are nearly 78,000 idiotic and ns&ne in this country. ^ The gentleman ).eUeyea that these people should never be discharged as cured, for their descendants are, in the majority, feeble minded. • Tbe Secretary of Charities at Strea- <or told of their excellent plan of giv- ng out relief, Prior to a year- ago, re- ief was givea out promiecupusly as it here^-by_^ariows Bocieties, ~'' ontributing $5 to the general fund. An organization was effected and ays- .ematic work waa begun with, the cooperation of the Supervisor, Record^ were kept and the poor were helped to situations. Tbe plan has been very successful, It tenda to lessen pauper* sm to a great extent. The matter of settling with the county ofiiceiis was brought «j» Bt the »e»-' aion Thursday afteruooo, A, F.

He experienced ail the ups and downs of the country doctor, often riding twenty miles through the bitter cold and storms of those winters to relieve suffering and, often, without pay, as, in those early days, people were not so prosperous aa of ate years, and it can be said of Dr. Freas that he never refused to go when ailed, from fear of not being paid. . ,Dr, J. P.
