- Mrs. LYONS, who keeps a boarding house near the saw mill in East Davenport, got an idea that Richard STANTON and wife who have been boarding with her were about to beat her out of the board bill, got into an altercation which culminated in a fight, in which she was more than a match for both her adversaries, breaking a chair over the man's head and striking the woman with the handle of a large knife. The patrol was called and the parties taken to the station. Squire PETERS heard the case this afternoon and found Mrs. LYONS guilty of assault and battery and fined her five dollars and costs, which she paid.
This morning Bert RICHARDSON, son of D.N. RICHARDSON, met with a painful accident which will result in maiming him for life. He was engaged in cleaning the press while it was running, and in some way his right hand was caught in the machinery. Before it could be extricated or the press stopped the index finger of the right hand was entirely severed at the first joint and the two middle fingers of the same hand were crushed to the second joint, the finger being irrevocably lost. The others will probably have to be amputated between the first and second joint, and may possibly be saved, but if so they will always be stiff. He endured the suffering with fortitude, and all will be done that is possible to make the hand as near complete as surgical skill can do it. He has the sympathy of his many friends.
To Keep Milk Without Ice
One of the most trying experiences in the lot of the housekeepers is to keep the milk pure. This, of course, relates to the great number to whom ice is a luxury, and, therefore, unobtainable. Owing to the scarcity, or alleged scarcity of that necessary article, this summer, with small allowances at fancy prices, the number who must worry along without this muchly-desired
article, has greatly increased. And with it their trials and tribulations rose in corresponding scale. However, even without the aid of this natural cooler, there are some troubles which can be guarded against, and one of them is sour or changed milk. This domestic calamity need not necessarily occur if a little attention is paid to the treatment of milk. Milk can be kept perfectly pure and fresh by the housekeepers canning it as they do fruits. Let them use the same kind of glass jars as with fruits. These should first be thoroughly washed, then boiled or baked in the oven for half an hour or longer. This should be done before the milk arrives. As soon as it comes, put it into the jars and lightly screw down the lids. Place them in a steamer over cold water, which should be heated gradually. Keep the jars steaming for not less than an hour, then screw the lids down and make them air-tight. If this process is rightly conducted, the milk in the jars ought to keep unchanged for at least a week. It is also freed from all disease germs, as a carrier of which it is notorious. This may seem to be considerable trouble, but in the nutritious effects of the milk obtained and in the killing off of the germs supposed to lurk in it is a prevention to sickness worth the trouble.
