James H. Ulrich, who guides engine

The C. R. I. & P. has a line class
of engines and a force that keeps up
the same." said Engineer Llrich. "I
never worked with engine or trainmen
who seemed to work so much to the
company s interest as tnev do nere.
The engineers and liremen are the most
economical in the use of fuel and oil
of any road I have ever ridden over,
and I have been on most of all the
large railroads in the United States.
While learning the road to run on
the Iowa division, 1 was greatly sur
prised to see how particular the lire
men were in handling the coal and
watching black smoko, and also the
engineers in using every means to
keen engines from 'popping.' Thi?
was new to me. as I had formerly seen
tiiemeu and brakers rolling the lumps
(that were too large to squeeze in the
lire box door) overboard. ' Here the
liremen break the coal in small pieces
and do not 'pile it in' and 'load her
up' for a chance to sit down. Thus
the breaking of coal by the company's
orders in chutes saves the expense of
supplying farmers and others along
the line with the lumps rolled over
board." lial.rond Rattle.

as heretofore alluded to, anent the
alleged revelations affecting a mem
ber of the council and his connection
with the slot machine devices, the
operation of which was recently or
dered to cease there. The papers
claim there is an affidavit in existence
in which certain specific charges are
made against the alderman in ques
tion. J hese charges are to the effect
that this alderman has been guilty of
accepting the sum of f 15 a week for
14 consecutive weeks, in considera
tion of which cash in hand paid he
assumed to lend his influence to a
certain man, owner of certain slot
machines, to the end that their oper

The program was arranged and
given by the members of the Luther

songs sung and most of the melodies
were the compositions of the leader
of the Reformation.
The service was opened with a beau
tiful organ voluntary, the grand
strains of "Ein Feste Burg" making
a fitting introduction to the discus
sions and songs that were to follow.
Mrs. J. L. Murphy, wife of the pastor
of the Rock Islam! church, presided at
the organ during tins inspiring rendi
tion. An essay on Hymn 316, entitled
"To God's Word," and also a product
of Luther's pen, was read by Miss
Minnie Swanson. She discussed the
thought of the song and the historical
circumstances which surrounded its
composition. Grant Hultberg deliv
ered a very interesting address on the
hymn, "lo the Holy Ghost,' winch
was rendereil afterward bv a quartet.
Miss Minnie Chindlund sang "I'pou
