M. A. Patterson, of the Kock Island
road, returned last night from I'hi

department of the system. lie
brought baek the pleasing informa
tion that the appointment of K. L.

the Kock Island here to succeed C. A.
Hunter, transferred to St. Paul, had
It had been known fir some time
that Mr. tJolt was under considera
tion for the position, but owing to
the number of applicants, many of
whom were from men who had been
directly in the service of the road
for years, the matter was not easily
decided. Mr. tioff has proved his
value in his former capacity, and his
many friends will be pleased that the
Itoek Island ljas recognized his
worth and that it will not be neces
sary for him to leave the city.
The last records of the passenger
department of the Peoria road were
packed and shipied today to Chicago.
One or two apointments remain to
be made before the last of the Pe
oria employes who expect to be plac
ed are taken care of. It is expected
that something definite on this head
will be received by Monday. .
M. II. Truesdale, formerly eommer
eial agent of the B., C. 11. &. X. at
Davenport, ha.s been appointed trav
eling freight agent of the Rock Isl
and with headquarters in Davenport.
Truckmen Called to Chicago.
Local freight agents of the Kock
Island from the tri-cities and other
places convenient to Chicago have
been called to that city to assist in
overcoming the freight handlers
strike as it affects the road there.
The road is drawing upon its truck
men in thre smaller towns to fill the
places of the strikers.
Loeal officials 'of t. the. Kock Island
road who have rece'ntly been in Chi
cago say that the general officers of
the road are still deeply involved in
the work that has been brought up
by the recent merging of so many
minor lines with the system. This
has Ipeen complicated by n change in
tlje manner of accounting that was
put into effect July 1. Nearly every
department iH vrowded with matters
crying for attention. One evidence
of the condition that exists in the
offices will be felt by the employes
all 'over the system. According to
custom, next Monday sh.ould be pay
day, but the money will probably not
reach the company's employes till n
The loeal freight agents are having
their hands full explaining the neces
sity for collecting demurrage from
people who keep ears longer than the
48 hours allowed under the new rule
of the Illinois Cht Service, association.
There seems to be no misunderstand
ing of the rule and the kicks are not
resgistered because the ' shipper or
consignee disputes the justice of the
general enforcement of it, but the
common plea is extenuating circum
stances. The coal dealers of the
three cities have heard nothing from
their petition for an. exception to the
rule In favor of soft coal dealers nnd
an extension of the time allowed

where a man planted rose bushes on

TALK UNDER EARTH
Method of Placing Telephone Ca
bles in Buried Conduits
REALLY VERY SIMPLE MATTER
Steam Roller I'aeU to Even the Irreg
ularities In Pavement.
Many who have observed the way
in which the underground conduits
are being laid by the Union Klectrie
Telephone & Telegraph company
havc been curious to know how the
wires are placed in the little tunnels
from one manhole to another. The
latter are always a block apart and
sometimes further, and to the ordin
ary Hrsoii the matter of getting the
heavy cables drawn through those
small openings appears a rather dif
As such mysteries usually are,
however, it is all very simple, the
method being so commonplace, in
fact, as to be almost disappointing.
It is done with a rod made up of
steel joints, much like the cleaning
rod of a Krag-Jorgensen rifle, with
the difference, however, that it can
be lengthened indefinitely. These are
screwed together as they are pushed
through. Then a wire is attached
and drawn through after the rod, the
latter being taken apart as it is
pulled out. After the wire conies a
heavy rope, and this is made fast to
the end of the cable.
The cables are made to ordes and
come in segments and are exactly
the right length to reach between
the. manholes where they are intend
ed to be placed. F.ach is wrapped in
a coil and the latter is placed above
the manhole so that it can be un
wound as the rope is drawn through
from the other end. The pulling is
done by a capstan run by hand, and
care must be exercised that there be
no breaks caused.
The cables are put together in an
interesting manner. F.ach contains
1(H) pairs of copper wires completely
insulated and enclosed in a heavy
lead casing. The whole is about two
inches in diameter. The insulation
is accomplished by means of a curi
ous fibrous paper, which is wrapped
about each wire in strips. The pairs
of wires are distinguished by their
colors. A different and heavier kind
of paper is usel inside the lead cas
ing. There will be lOO.noo feet of this
cable usim! in the three .cities, and it
alone will cost $'.1(1.000.
In the manholes the cables will be
spliced ami divided, if it is desired.
F.ach pair of wires will be joined to
another air and the insulation care
fully looked after. Then the whole
will be saturated with melted par
affin to drive out every bit of moist
ure nnd prevent its return. The
joints will be covered with lead
"sleeves" enough larger than the ca
ble so as to slip over it, and the cov
ering will be soldered so as to make
it air tight. If the manholes are fill
ed with water, as often happens, no
damage will result to the system.
Distributed on I'oles.
In the part of town where the
wires are placed under ' ground,
which will be done somewhat beyond
the fire limits, the surface connec
tions will be made through the man
holes at the end of each block, 50
pairs of wires usually being brought
up at a time. The distribution will,
of course, be effected by menus of
poles. The wires are connected in
the manholes without regard to po
sition, and after they have been
brought to the surface at the end
farthest from the central office, they
are testetl and numbered.
The conduits are arranged to canry
from one ti four cables, according to
the number of openings there are.
They are laid in concrete their en
tire length, and when once down they
are never disturoed except in case of
extraordinary accidents. Owing to
the request that has been made in
this city that bnt two blocks of each
trench be kept ojen at a time, the
fills are being made temporarily.
The company promises to remedy the
irregularities in the pavement that
result from settling by relaying with
more filling in the depressions and
then putting on the heavy street
There is more catarrh in this sec
tion of the country than in 'all other
diseases put together, and until the
last few j-ears was supposed to be
incurable. For a great many years
doctors pronounced it a local dis
ease, and prescribed local remedies,
and by constantly failing to cure
with local treatment, pronounced it
incurable. Science has proven ca
tarrh to be a constitutional disease,
and, therefore, requires constitu
tional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney
& Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the' only con
stitutional cur.e on the market. It is

The Peruna Medicine Co., Columbus, O.:
Qentlemen: "Peruna is a blessing to suffering women, t suffered with
female trouble since I began menstruation, and every month I suffered two and
three days of untold agony, and had to arrange my work and duties so as to
be in bed every month for two days at least.
My brother was cured of Bright' s Disease from the use of Peruna and so
I determined to try it for my trouble.
'imasrlne mv great lov when I found that it relieved me quite a bit the first
month and I was entirely without pain during that period after having used
Peruna only four months. . ,.
''This is about two years ago and all during that time I have suffered no pain.
I can now come and go as 1 like and consider Peruna weman's best friend
and wish that every suffering woman might know that she can find relief
through the use of this medicine. "
MRS. JESSIE ROSE. ,
Mrs. Ellen Thompson, Battle Town,
Ky., writes :
"WThen I wrote yon for advice I was
very 'bad. off. When I received your
letter I commenced using Peruna and it
did just what you said it would. I have
had a cough for about fifteen years and
your medicine has done mo more good
than anything I have ever used. I am
so thankful to you for your advice to
me." Mrs. Ellen Thompson.
Mrs. James Eighmey, XJrape, Mich.,
"I have been troubled with pa-'n be
fore and during my mommies ever since
I was seventeen. I ws also troubled
with other female weakness. I took
your treatment, and am now well, and
thank you for your kind advice." Mrs.
Mrs. John Meyer.", Erhart, O., writes:
"I have been a sufferer from chronic
catarrh for years and have thereby lost
the sense of smell entirely. I liad four
of the best physicians in this vicinity
without receiving any lieneflt whatever.
'Now I am once more a well woman.
I find Peruna to be the best medicine
in the world as it has done me more
good than my physician could have
done for me. My friends say I look
ten years younger. I tell them that
Peruna did it. I can't thank you
enough for your free advice." Mrs.
Mrs. Ida Baker, Portsmouth,
" I am glad to say that I am well. I
have taken Peruna and 'feel lettcr than
I have for ten years; have gained twelve
pounds and am still gaining. When I
wrote to you for advice I had given up
all hope of being well again, and I feel
that it has saved my life." Mrs. Ida
Alice Scott, of Franklin, Ky., in a let
ter to Dr. Hartinan, says:
"For seven long years I had lieen a
constant sufferer from catarrh of the
pelvic organs which resulted in dis
placement of the uterus. I wrote yoa
telling you all my complaints from tho
beginning to the present, made happy
and much encouraged every time by
your kind and fatherly letters of advice
and instruction. I am now a strong
woman weighing 148 pounds." Alice
