Today is their golden wedding au

the existence of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph

known as Mother" Schieberl. For
many years they have conducted a

An Interesting feature of railroad
life is the way engineers of the differ
ent roads vie with each other aa to1
the capabilities of their respective
companies to make time records.
An engineer may oe no more loyal to
the company employing him than
any other attache, but he is just as
mncb to, ana no may oe a mt!e more
familiar with the hardships that are
to be overcome in keeping pace with
the times. His locamotive is his
pride, and be will swear by it to the
bitter end. A fast run on the
Chicago, Burlington & Quincy was
made Sunday between Galesburgand
Mendota by the Texas flyer, the dis
tance of 80 miles being covered in
79 minutes, including four stops of
two minutes, leaving the actual run

was No. 512 class H. Frank Bol

The train consisted cf four cars.
This establishes a new record for the
Burlington. The best run on that
system previous to this was that of a

tance was covered in 83 minutes.

tlaaates That Reports at tha KStMt Hare
The following card was received
at The Argus office last evening, ac
companicd by a note from President
Olsson, of Augustana college. . re
questing that it be published:
"a no recent inquiry iuuicsdcu uj
the board of directors of Augustana
College and Theological Seminary to
the general faculty or the institution
as to the sentiments of the professors
in reference to a contemplated tem
porary reduction of their salaries,
has been received and given prelimi
nary consideration and will be taken
under further advisement in a dig
nified and respectful manner.
'The reports of this matter tn tne
papers are simply burlesques.
Augustana College, Kock island,
Feb. 8. U. Olssox. President."
As far as Dr. Olsson's assumption
of the reports of the proposed cut in
salaries at the college being bur
lesques are concerned, it is very ap
parent that he is not thoroughly in
formed as to the feeling of the faculty.
The fact that the heads of many of
the departments of the institution
are most vigorously opposed to the
suggested reduction and that an cm-
khatio demurrer will be entered
against such a course docs not indi
cate that such an attitude will carry
other than a dignified and respectful
conduct, nor is it conclusive evidence
that reports of the matter are neces
sarily burlesque. As tar as ihk Ali
ces' source of information is con
cerned it is perfectly satisfied that it
is reliable, and it is rurther con
vinced that it was furnished in the
same spirit that it was solicited
without the least spirit of prejudice
to the institution.
Chairs May be Vacant.
Furthermore, The Akqcs, from its
careful investigation of the effects
of the curtailment proposition, is
satisfied now that the feeling is
much more intense than the learned
doctor realizes, and unless there is a
marked change in the sentiment of
the faculty he will discover that if
the board of regents were to insist
on submission to the reduction, that
some of the chairs of the institution
would be quickly vacated, and be it
said that some of them might not be
as capably filled as they now arc
