fireproof. The general entrance to
the shop community -will be from the
west. The buildings mentioned are
intended to meet 'only the immediate
demands of the system and will be
rapidly added to until one of the larg
est plants of its character in the
country is the result. As heretofore
stated, it is intended to concentrate
here all the shops of the Rock Island
road, which 'at the start will mean
the transfer of at least 3,000 men. Lo
comotives and ears are to be built
there also, calling for additional
working force, while a part of the
800 acres that has been acquired will
be occupied as stock yards.
It will be a matter of but a few
days more until all the property rep
resented in the tract shall have pass
ed into the possession of the com
pany, as the- options are being closed
as rapidly as the owners can be call
ed to the city to receive their money.

Lieut. Gov. Tillman was this after
noon refused bail at the conclusion
of the hearing of his application for
release on bonds.
MORE MOGULS ARRIVE
AT THE NATICE! YARDS
Ten additional engines of the new
1600 series have been completed and
received at Natick. They will be
tried out on runs from here during
the remainder of this week. The vast
freight traffic now enjoyed by the
Rock Island road on the Illinois divi
sion is the cause of the change from
the 1400 and 1200 series to those now
being put in, as the new engines will
have a pulling capacity of 20 percent
greater than either of the series of
mogul engines previously used on
the local divisions. As the old engines
are replaced, they will be sent to the
Kansas southern division, where traf
fic is not so heavy as here.

The Coming of a Doctor to Locate
Permanently in a town has no half-way significance upon the .suflTerinfj hu
manity of a city either he is going to benefit them greatly or just the re
verse. When Dr. Horne announced intention through the columns of this
paper of permanently locating here, naturally all thinking people wanted
to .know all about him. His advertisements were bold, startling, but con
vincing; the testimonials were signed by the most reputable citizens.
Teople commenced to investigate, and visited his offices, and the most
convincing and pathetic scenes were seen in and around their reception
rooms. People who. had been suffering with rheumatism, lame back and
sciatica for years were beine cured by a method that is as skillful, pain
less and quick as it is wonderful. Just think of a man who could hardly I
walk for years, all crippled up with rheumatism, after taking one of his
treatments, dancing around the room with joy. People deaf for several
years had their hearing restored, and were, one and all, anxious that their
names should be given to the public, so that others might be cured-
"There is no doubt in the people's mind of the great good he is ac
complishing with his new methods, and all patients say how much he is do
ing for them. He has extended his liberal offer of free TUTvATMI'NT foi
the next ten days, and we wish to say that no sufferer should fail to avail
himself of the opportunity of consulting this eminent socialist as his ad
vice is valuable. If you cannot call, write full description of -symptoms.

port. That is one of the best reasons if you are suffering from any chron
ic disease and want to get cured, why you should take his treatment.
