The army is said to be tbe evolu

tbe masses who are outside the pale

incorporation of tbe army in America

Under this charter it becomes a legal
entity and takes its place among the

What Woman are Doing-.
With reference to what women are
doinjr in tbe cause, tbe report says
Thousands of those who never cross
the threshold of a church are to be
found night after night at our meet

to be converted, a maraea cnange
comes frequently over their lives.
'Ihe meetings possess for these men a
strange fascination, drawing tbem

they say, 'to act than to talk.' and yet
the burning words which fall from
their lips, powerful in their simplicity,
go straight to the hearts of their hear

no sense inferior to the men. and the
fact that they are equally eligible for

to draw forth gifts, which have only

Increase in Business on Rock

GE0WTH SH0W5 BY EABXT5GS.
General Manager Brown, of the
Q, on Western Crops
Business on the Rock Island is very
brisk. New men have lately been
taken on and engine and train crews
barely get their necessary rest. There
is a standing order that they lie re
turned to duty as soon as their period
of rest has expired.
The annual report of the Rock Isl
and system for tbe fiscal year ending
March 6, 19UU, shows a most grati
f ving condition of affairs. Gross earn
ings from passenger, freight and mail
transportation shows a big increase
over the preceding fiscal year, the
total gross earnings showing an in
crease of $1,932,090 09. The operat
ing expenses for the year were $14

W. C. Brown, manager of the Bur
lington road, has recently returned
from a western trip, and has this to
say concerning crop prospects: "I
have been with the Burlington for 25
years and have not in that time seen
tbe crops so tine all along the line as
they are this season. Wheat is mag
nificent, and in western Nebraska,
where they cannot raise anything with
any degree of certainty, the winter
wheat neer looked so line. In Kan
sas and Nebraska they are working
days and nights and Sundays to get
the wheat harvested, and the cold
weather has been just what was needed
to round it into condition. In Iowa I
have never seen corn so good nor the
grass better, and all small grain is in
excellent condition. It is certainly
an exceotional year in many of the
states in the west."
