famine, inch aa Hock Island ia feeling
the effect of, been heard of. Often
in the pant has The Arc us spoken of
the dire need of dwelling homes, and
as time passes, the wnnt has grown
to be a great necessity. Some two
months ago the C, R. I. A P. rail
road inangnrated a movement where
by all passenger trains were started
from Rock Island instead of Daven
port, a movement by which at least
lifty families should e brought to
k Kock Island. But where are those
families? Oar city's population has
surely not increased one half this
mnch. It is now understood that
the railroad men on the southwest
division of the Kock Island road have
in circulation a petition praying for
the removal of the headquarters of
that branch to Kansas City. Their
reasons for such a move are that it is
utterly imjiossible to secure houses,
such as are desired, at a moderate
rate of. rental, that arc lit abiding
places or in the vicinity 'of their

The qnestion now arises, can Rock
Island stand this move? Visitors to
Rock Island have always spoken
highly of the city, and express it as
their opinion that no prettier city
caa be foond. Stili.it behooves us
that from oar midst families must
necessarily move because of inability
to se?ure dwellings.
What We WaaU
What we want, it we mast keep
these families with us, is modern
dwelling bouses at moderate rentals.
There is scarcely any business which
pays better wajr'es than railroads, and
there caa be found no tatter or more
prompt payers than railroad men.
Then why" sit by and see family
after family move to places where
houses are being erected to accom
modate them, and to encourage them
to reside therein. In the vicinity of
the C. K. I. 4 r. depot, at least 200
bonses could be built, and easily
rented, and there is plenty of vacant
proirty whereon these buildings
might be erected.

Commencement ia like spring in that
it is new each year and that familiarity
with it breeds only increased apprecia
tion. It g-nra on the participator aa
his years accrue. It is a good day for
the hopeful youths who graduate and
march at the head of the line. It will
seem good to them next year, when they
come back after a 13 months' separation
and hobnob with one another over their
class punch and presently get in line at
the very tail end of the procession, so
far off from the band that they can
scarcely catch the music But in 10
years' time, when they have 'moved np
10 places nearer to the band, they will

takes to go back to commencement and
take account of stock.
A strangely impressive spectacle is the
forming of the line of graduates that
marches to the commencement dinner of
an old college. First comes the gradu
ating class, then the alumni by classes
in order of seniority. "Class of 1820!"
cries the marshal. Perhaps there is no
response. "Classof 1821! Classofl322!
Class of 1823! Presently, as his class is
reached, the oldest graduate present
steps out, a venerable man, perhaps the
sole representative of his year, and takes
bis place amid the cheers of the specta
tors. Then for a dozen or -a score of
classes as the marshal calls the year one
or two or lour or five old men walk out,
arm in arm, supporting one another's
steps. Then as the list gets into the for

panorama of human life is the com
