Hawthorn Railroad Y. M. C.
Makes Good Showing for
EEPOET OF SECRETARY M. 0. FULLER
Rnmored That Supt. R(ce is to L.eave
the Burlington -Notes.
At the end of the first month of the
Hawthorn railroad Y. M. C. A. the
membership of the institution is just
100. This is considered a verv good
showing, considerably above the ex-
peetntion of those in charge of the
work. 'J ho facilities offered by the
Y. M. C. A. are greatly appreciated
by the men who have taken advantage
of them and the effect is being felt
by the boarding houses and restaur,
tants about the yards that coined
money for their owners during the
summer months. Most of these will
soon be forced out of business.
Secretary M. O. Fuller has just
made out his report for the month of
December to forward to the officials
of the road and to the state officers
of th(j railroad department. The
period covered by his report is five
day less than a month. His figures
h'w that the institution has earned
approximately $1,100. The rest rooms
have leen used 700 times, an average
of 2S daily, the total number of rooms
being 33; the restaurant was used
3.011 times, an average of 116 a day;
lht barber shop was used 279 times,
and there were 15S baths taken. The
library has been well patronized and
the bible classes and morning prayers
are drawing considerable interest.
A move is on foot to begin a class
for the study of the steam engine and
10 names have already been enrolled.
The leaders in the work will be.enj
neers of practical exerience. Other
classes of this kind will be formed in
the course of time!.
The Y. M. C. A., although well pat
ronized, is not yet on a basis vhi;h
enables it to pay the portion of the
cost of its maintenance specified un
der the plan upon which its inaugur
ation was agreed on by the Kfk Is
land officials. To reach this the
membership must be brought to 2(0
and even at that the road will have
a considerable portion of the expense
to War. There is little doubt now,
however, that all anticipations will be
realised in the course of time.

Xearly600 employes of the general
offices of tlie Rurlington road tuaroh
cd to the ticket office window in C'lii
cago Thursday and purchased month
ly suburban tickets for their wives,
and are ,now longing for the god
times that have gone, not to come
o one knows just where the order
came from to stop furnishing the
women heads of employes households
with suburban transportation, but it
is credited to .Tamos J. Hill, and is
one f the several reforms in trans
lortation matters which the new
management is said to be figuring on
It has been the custom on the P.ur
lington for time out of mind to give
the woman at the head of each em
ploye s family, be she wife, mother
or siter, free transportation on the
suburban line, and in the form of
monthly tickets. With the end if
the year this privilege ceased, and,
so far as known, the TJurhngton is
the only road to shut off this class of
favors. The new rule is the sole topic
of conversation and discussion among
the rank and file in the lUirlington
offices, and various were the opinions
held regarding it. .No explanation
was given for cutting off the passes.
It is undTtood that similar privil
eges heretofore granted to cinpio-cs'
wives all over the system have been
cut off or will be.
Hardy Hetter Hnrt.
Yard Foreman Hardy Hetter is con
fined to his home as the result of an
accident of which he was the victim
Thursday evening. He boarded the
evening train west at the TwentietJ
street depot in company with a friend
intending to get off at the Seven
teenth street station. Becoming in
terested in a conversation he did not
notice how far he was being carried
till the train had reached Thirteenth
street and was running almost at fidl
speed. Then he jumped. Fortunate
ly he fell on the level sand which the
track is built upon at. this point and
his evolutions after he reached the
ground were not obstructed. As it
was, his face was cut in a number
of places, one eye was blacked and
one knee stiffened. Xo - bones were
broken, however, and Hardy is more
inclined to thank his stars than to

A rumor is being commonly circu
lated among the local railroad men
that the resignation of F. C. Kice as
superintendent of the Illinois lines of
the Q to take effect Feb. 1 has been
handed in. The officials of the road
in this city claim to know nothing
either of the origin or truthfulness
of the report although they cannot
deny that Mich en event es the resig
nation of Supt. Kice would be scarce
ly surprising in the face of the new
policy the owners of the road are
adopting. The report may possibly
have arisen from the fact that Supt.
Kice has been ill for some time and

Remarkable Cure of Cronp A Little Boy's
I have a few words to say regard
ing Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
It saved my little boy's life and I feel
that I cannot praise it enough. I
bought a bottle of it from A. E.
Stcere of Goodwin, S. D., and when I
got home with it the poor baby could
hardly breathe. I gave the medicine
as directed every ten minutes until
he "threw up" and then I thought
sure he was going to choke to death.
We had to pull the phlegm out of his
mouth in great long strings. I am
positive that if I had not got that
bottle of cough medicine, my boy
would not be on earth today. Joel
