A pathetic sight was presented to Henry Lindsley's friends today, when he was seen, outstretched in a wheel ed chair, in progress to and from town. The "man behind the gun" was his father, F. D.

Seashore and Prof. A G. Smith are back from New Mexico, where they have been communing with Nature, in her most free and untrammeled moods As rancheros. lighthearted and gay, they have become bronzed--if not "beared like the pard," and have gained new vigor and impetus to carry them through the com- j ing year's work at the University. j With the Iowa Cityans was an old S. j U.

Farrell, who impersonated Dantes: the Count; the fa?se abbe:; the diamont merchant, and numerous other striking characters in the dramatized novel which won such fame for James O'Neil. The T7ork of Mr. Farrell was admirably suggestive of his versatility and da:-- irg, and he was supported by an equally talented company. The Elks gave their brother a warm reception. Tonight the company will close the week's engagement with "In Old Ar kansas.*' Armed with requisition papers from Governor Cummins, Marshal R. J. Wiley, of West Liberty, left this city today for Chickisha, L T.. where he secure a young man -who it is believed knows something of the murder of Arthur Mead, ·which occurred at West Liberty, on May 14 last Whether the officers are justified in going to so much expense in bridging this -witness back to the scene of the crime remains to be seen, yet the circumstances are much more tangible than were those of any other clae followed by the officers. Some startling developments are thought, to be near will cost, say, one-third of that amount as it will include the sinking of the' piies, the erection of the tubes, etc The building of the superstructure is a separate piece of work in fact. The bridge in Iowa City will be erected about 200 feet nort of the Iowa avenue bridge, and the other Iowa river bridge will be built at Curtis, beyond North Liberty. The Iowa City and Curtis bridges v-iil be built alike. There will be ten tubes, five feet in ciameter, and 25 feet high, to eacn bridge. Five pilings, 16 feet long, will be the support of each tube. These will be shoved up into each tube about six feet and concrete filling will do -the clamping and clinching "act" The piling will be sunk to the low water mark. They will be surrounded with the concrete, which will be Inserted up to the top of the tube, making the insertion as sure as if so much solid metal were used. The tubes will be of quarter-inch steel, and will be capped with-steel place, one-half inch in thickness. t At Cedar Rapids, the bridge will- be twins," and will be 300 feet and 225 feet long, respectively. The longer one will require no piling, as the tubes will there rest on solid rock bottom. The other will take eight tubes, with four pieces of piling, each It is hoped that the work on the Bridges may begin soon, as the fall s supposed to see the structure com- ·leted all alorfg the line. $1,000 bond, and she emphatically an positively identified him as the mai who had plotted, and who later lait violent hands on Farmer Pearson! when the latter was driving in her company, and hauled him from the 1 buggy, and aided in his robbery!
