A Close Observer.
All his life an ordinance. officer. Col.
Mordecai is very much interested in
matters pertaining to that depart
ment of the army. The administra
tion of affairs at posts such as this is
highly entertaining to him. He wants
to know all the ins and out of Kock
Island arsenal, and he is getting them.
He is putting in good solid hours
every day, and is going through the
place from end to end, into every cor
ner and every detail of the shops,
their arrangement, management, op
eration, and economy. He will know
the place by heart by the time he
gets away, which will probably only
be a few days hence. This thorough
study of the best arsenal in the coun
try is characteristic of Col. Mordecai,
who has been thus alert in all matters
that pertain to his work all through
The extension of the powerhouse on
the waterpowcr dam was completed
some time ago. and the six additional
turbines were set in their penstocks,
and the big generator that they are to
run has been put in place. The wir
ing of this additional plant is being
done now, and will soon be finished,
so that a trial can be run. if desired.
Twenty 1Ik Water wheels.
This additional plant gives the new
power installation on the dam a total
of 20 of the biggest waterwheels. with
an aggregate output of 3.0O0 horse
power in anticipation of the opening
of the smallarms plant, seme time
hence. The .1.000 horsepower will be
ample for all deparments of the ar

the present there is more than enough
power in the two big generators that
are in place.

Ail or the Cloth For Them la Mad
From Cotton Fabric,
All of the cloth used In the binding
of books is made from cottou fabric,
yet one would not say so on seeing the
finished product. Some of it looks ex
actly like coarse linen. Other styles
have an appearance of the finest kind
of silk, while others have various sorts
of finishes that look like lentheret, can
vas, watered silk aud a thousand dif
When the cloth comes from the mills
It is treated in various ways to pre
pare it for the dyeing process, which i9
the most important. Different kinds of
sizing are used In the different grades,
nnd after this is done It is ready for
the color machines.
These are really ttio same sort of ma
chines that calico is made on. They
are built of great steel rolls or cams
that are heated to a high tempernture
by means of live steam passing
through them constantly. The cloth
passes through boxes filled with the
aniline color that the cloth is expected
to be colored with. This is mixed with
a starch paste and is spread evenly all
through the cloth.
The latter then continues through the
uteam heated cams aud is finally rolled
up at the back of the machine in a
heavy roll of the desired color. The dif
ferent finishes are given in a second
process. The cloth is passed through
very heavy and massive steel rolls
which have been engraved with the de
sign that is wanted. Fine lines run
ning diagonally across the cloth will
give a silk effect, and there are many
other impressions that may be stamped
on in this way. Springfield Union.

LORIMER AS A STAR
Young Romantic Actor to Have
Play of His Own This
PAYS VISIT TO THIS CITY
Cornea Here to Consult Frank Wil
liams, Ills Future Man
ager. Wright Loiimer, known to theatre
goers here as leading man with Mil
dred Holland and Katherine Willard
for the past three years, and to a
select coterie of friends as one of the
pleasantest gentlemen when off the
stage that has risen to some measure
of fame, was in Kock Island yester
day. It will interest local admirers
of his "rjaron Ronald" to know that
Mr. Lorimer resigned his connection
with' Miss Willard's company a short
time ago, and after remaining to work
his successor into the role that he has
filled so well for three years, came
out here in connection with arrange
ments that he is making to star in a
play of his own next year.
Air. Lorimer's particular mission
her was to consult with Frank Wil
liams, the manager of "When Johnny
Conies Marching Home," who will be
come Mr. Lorimer's manager when his
play is ready to be produced. Mr.
Lorimer counts himself fortunate in
securing Mr. Williams to look after
his business affairs, as his long ex
perience in managing stars and big
attractions will insure the actor's bid
for stellar honors being made upon
the right lines. Mr. Williams was the
first manager for Clara Morris, man
aged. Booth's theatre in New York, di
rected August in Daly's affairs for a de
cade, and is known to the profession
at large as a clean cut, discriminating
manager -f long experience. He will
bring Mr. Lorimer out in New York
in a manner that will insure the suc
cess of the trial if the new play proves
to be all that Mr. Lorimer, Mr. Wil
liams and other good judges have de
clared it to be.
Wide Scop In New Tiny.
Mr. Lorimer goes to New York at
once to give his entire time to pre
paring for the production of the play,
the staging and costuming and as
sembling and drilling of the capable
company with which he intends to
surround himself. The new play will
allow- hini a wide scope for this pre
liminary work, as it dips into a new
field and one that offers wide latitude
in the matter of artistic embelish
ment. It is entitled "The Shepherd
is a romantic drama in
four acts, by Arnold Keeves and
Wright Lorimer, telling an old testa
ment, story of beauty and jx;wer, and
without a bad woman in it, as Mr.
Lorimer states with evident satisfac
tion. While he is not trying for re
form on the stage, Mr. Lorimer is an
ardent advocate of all that tends to
its elevation, and he holds to the
somewhat heretical belief that good
women can be made as attractive tin
the stage as bad women. Mr. Keeves,
the main creator of the play, is known
as a very clever writer, and Mr. Lori
mer supplies the scenario and will
have personal charge of its produc
tion. It is cident that the young actor
manager has set himself a large task,
but those who know him believe that
it will be found within the range of
his capabilities. He has everything
in his favor young, physique, a hand
some stage presence, intense earnest
ness, ambition, jerseverance. talent
the qualities that win. He has made
steady advance from an unimportant
position in a stock company six years
ago to leading man in some of the
best companies that have been on the
Confessions of s Priest.

her body nnd face were swollen al
