GUIDE THE MARINER
Hundreds of Lights That Burn
in the Mississippi
DAJfGER OF OLD DAYS El MOVED
Dozen Lamps Along the Rock
Dark nights and wind and waves
ruled the great Mississippi river in
the old days. When the river mariner
had to depend upon the marks upon
the shore to guide his craft there was
nothing else to do but to tie up to
the bank should thosa marks be con
fused with the blackness of the night.
If a pilot wanted to throw his good
boat away all he had to do was to at
tempt to ruu the Rock Island rapids
when there was bo sun or no moon or
stars to reveal to him his where
abouts. It was diflicnl; enough in
the old days to cross the rapids in the
day time, and well nigh impossible at
But while Uncle Sam has been
widening out the channel and smooth
In'' off the rough places, he has scat
tered here and there an artificial star,
until no less than 800 white lights
burn at various points along the Mis
sissippi and the pilot need not hesi
tate to travel the moit difficult por
tions, though the blackness be denser
than the proverbial night in the
land of Moses. All that he needs to
do is to keep the prow of his boat
squarely upon the lights ahead, first
upon one and then upon the next, and
he will hold bis craft in the channel
though the shores be walls of Stygian
darkness. And woe to the light keeper
whose lamp is not trimmed and burn
ing. The river man is quick to ap
preciate the service and anxious to
assist Uncle Sam in seeing that it is
as near perfection as possible.
Sevea Hudttd Keepers.
It requires no less than 700 keepers
to tee that these 800 lights are
trimmed and kept barning. Richard
Maxwell, the light keeper on the Bock
Island rapids, has a dozen lights un
der his control and nightly makes his
rounds in a powerful launch. At the
Des Moines rapids the keeper has 11
lights in charge, and other keepers
have from three to five. Bat several
hundred have but a single light to
look after. The government pays
from to to $13 per light for its care.
Before the days of piers, lights and
buoys, the river mariner steered his
craft by familiar land marks such as

old tree trunks and natural promon

ing lights, has taken a hint from na
ture and many a light shines from
tree trunks or. from frames built upon
familiar sites. Others are upon Is
lands and still others upon floating

burning on this greatest of rivers.
Tended by the V. 8. Lily.
The U. S. Lily, which touched at
Rock Iiland recently, is the patrol
boat of these river lighthouses, and
makes about four trips a year to every
keeper, carrying oil, wicks, matches,
little ladders, new lamps and lamp
frames, copies of the book of instruc
tions, and last, but not least, the cash
compensation for the keepers. It is
no wonder. that the Lily appears beau
tiful to the keepers. But this light
house tender, for such she may be
called is, not because of her duties,
a beautiful baat. From stem to stern
she is kept as clean and prim as a
battleship in its peace time dress of
white. She is a well proportioned
side wheeler, with roomy and airy
cabins and etateroems. and the ofli.
cers who live aboard her have every
opportunity to enjoy a healthful life
Moat Kern Kvery Night.
One thing that the rule book which
the commander of the Lily presents
to the light keepers impresses upon
the latter is the fact that "the light
must burn every night." There is
no moonlight sclpulation that per
mits them to be put out whea Luna
is getting in her work. The keeper
must learn this rule first of all. The
light must burn not only on those
nights when the weather is pleasant
and the task of lighting them Is pleas
ant, bnt also when the wind and
storm king rages and the task is not
only disagreeable but dangerous.
There is no work connected with
the river that has not its tinge of
romance. Perhaps this fact has in
fluenced the naming of the lights.
They are named for islands, Indians,
farmers, steamboat men, river hap
penings, explorers, birds and beasts.

been vacant for several weeks, has

Ia a town down the state there was
a preacher who possessed talents that
attracted the committee. lie was
piid a visit. He was all and more
than he had been reputed to be, the
committee being greatly impressed by
one of his sermons, lie was asked
what salary he would accept to make
a change. ' He named his price. Toe
committee told him it was a triHa
steep, but it was believed the congre
gation would allow it. The minister
was informed that he might expect to
hear from the committee within a week
The committee returned home con
fident in the belief that at last the
right man had been secured. Sunday
a report was made to the congrega
tion. wh!ch voted to pay the salary
specified by the preacher from do u
tne date. A ctil was accordingly ex
tended and the congregation anxious
ly awaited the appearance of the new
pastor. In the course of a few days
be replied that he was sorry to dis
appoint the committee, but a church
in another town had met the hgure
named to the Reck Island committee
and raised it $500. So the Rock Isl

OVERTURNED BOX CARS
BLOCK PEORIA TRACKS
About 8 o'clock last evening, as the
second section of freight train No. 12.
of the R. I. & P., in charge of Con
ductor Cook, was pulling out for
Peoria, two cars, for some reason not
yet explained, left the trark at the
foot of Nineteenth street. The mo
mentum of the portion of the train
behind overturned them and both
tracks were completely blocked sev
eral hours. One of the derailed cars
was loaded with oats and the other
with flour. Both were righted and
placed on the track with little damage.
The night train from Peoria came
in four minutes late with a heavy load
of passengers and baggage for the
west. A transfer was made past the
wreck and the train was but three
minutes late at the Rok Island depot.
