Shortly after the holidays, accord
ing to the plan which is being talked
about, the St. Paul Railway company
and the United States Express com.
pany will enter into a deal by which
the working force on all passenger
trains will be reduced altont one-
half, as tar as the baggage and ex
press services are concerned. The
plan, which is in the interest of
economy, is to have one man attend
to both the baggage and express linn-
mess on the trains, or where three or
four men are thus engaged now to
reduce the force to two. It has been
decided that ordinarily the baggage
car force can easily do the work of
handling the express matter, and in
the contemplated redaction the beet
men, whether express messengers or
baggagemen, will te retained.
I he earnings of the St. Paul for
the first week in December amounted
to $676,318, while for the correspond
ing week of last year tliey were $014,
'.'89, thus showing a decrease this
year of $.17,971.

The Railway Age, in its computa

is less than in any other of the last
20 years, and it is the least in the

1875, 1876 and 1865. The total mile
age constructed during the year was

Why tha Fair la the Daattacttea Leader la
The advent of the opening of the

Company's Fair, was indeed an epoch
in merchandising in that particular

line, lor the consumers of Davenport
and the entire vicinity. This kas
become more and more apparent as
the people are beginning to under
stand that the Model Grocery Depart
ment sens more groceries than any
establishment of the tri-cltics, and
can consequently afford to sell
cheaper. Goods are moving rapidly
all the time, hence the purchaser
knows that bis groceries are always
fresh, and are not like goods that are
carried on the shelves for au nnlim.

reduced prices to move them. As

i he lowest possible cost.
