Camillo Cornell, a returned Knox
county soldier, has filed his discharge
paper for record In tho offlco of tho
Tho now topographical map of Mt.
Vernon rind vicinity, which was plac
ed In tho window of tho Chamber of
Commorco yesterday afternoon by
Mr. C. M. Phillips, city engineer and
designer of tho map, Is surely an ex
cellent piece of" workmanship, nnd
Mr. Phillips Is to bo highly commend
ed for Its designing.
The map was drawn up for the
purposo of assisting tho committees
at work on tho high water problem
now confronting tho city of Mt. Ver
non. It Is of plaster Paris composi
tion, four feet square, and finished In
colors. It Is set In a- largo black
frame, Is verily a work of art In that
its dimensions are scaled out and the
relatives heights of the different
points on tho map aro exact. Mr.
Phillips modestly represents this map
to be worth in labor alone between
$150 and $200.
Tho map includes tho adjacent
country around tho city, giving tho
exact dimensions of tho fields, show
ing every stream In its relative size
in relation to tho Kokoslng river.
Each block of the city Is definitely
outlined and tho streets aro named.
The railroads are outlined in their
exact relation to the city's topo
graphy, and in relatiqn to tho city
dyko which is shown In its exact po
sition. Thus every feature of the
city's topography is noted and demon
strated materially so that nny person
desiring can sqo just what tho situa
tion is at tho present time.
in addition, Mr. Phillips has drawn
a white line along tho course of the
Kokosong river showing tho -course
that should bo followed in tho work
of straightening the rivor in order
that it Itself might save tho city hun
dreds of dollars in alleviating tho
peoplo of tho danger from floods and
high water. Ono of tho first thoughts
that will como to tho average mind
as lie studies this fino map Is that be
foro tjio city goes to any moro ex
pense in tho building of bridgos it
should beyond all means get back of
tho "river straightening" proposition,
and seo that It is properly done as
tho right beginning of bridge building.
This map will be left in tho window
of the Chamber of Commerce for
somo timo and every citizen of tho
city should drop around and see It,
and study It. It will help wonderful
ly In getting tho proper lino on the
proposed work that tho city expects
soon to push in relation to doing
away with tho danger from high
This map i just tho beginning of a
series of, studies that Mr. Phillips
is preparing for the solution of this
water problem. Tho others will ap
