agreement which can be so easily
broken for the sake of influencing
business. The shipper at competing

it is whispered about in railwav cir
cles that the Northwestern company
will soon commence the construction
of a new double-track bridge over the
M ississippi at Clinton, which project
has been talked of for several years,
and preliminary preparations for
which, in the shape of soundings of
the bottom of the river south of the
present bridge, were made a year ago.
The recent visit of Chief Kngineer Fin
ley and a number of other railway offi
cials to Clinton has revived the talk
of the new bridge, and rumor has it
that the construction of the bridge
will be commenced as soon as the ice
goes out next spring.
ALIVE TO THE SITUATION
Merchant of prlnfffleld Appreciate Value
Springfield merchnnls have figured
out the benefits to be derived from
interurhsin communication. It means
thousands of thousands of dollars to
them mid they propose to take ad
vantage of Ihe chance for widening
the scope of their business to the full-c-t
exrent. Pock Island merchants
n:l citizens generally will do well to
read and profit by the following view
of the matter as set forth by the
S.i ingiioid Register:
"Imprc xcir.eut 1 1 : 1 s for a number of
years been the spirit animating the
people of Springfield whenever an op
portunity to benefit the city has of
fered. In its breadth and scope this
spirit has been broad and liberal and.
as a ci nseqnence. the Springfield of
a few years ago is rapidly disappear
ing as it dons the apparel provided by
the progressive spirit silong these lines.
Hut possibly one of the greatest ad
vantages to Springfield will be its
coming closer connection wit h the peo-
l pie thotighoul a large portion of the
state. We refertothe centering in t he
city of several interurban lines which
will bring Springfield in closer touch
with the country and smaller towns
scattered over a large surrounding ter
ritory. These lines will bring to this
city daily from these several districts
thousands of people, who will come
primarily for the purpose of supplying
domestic and personal wants from the
large assortment the market facilities
of Springfield offer.
"Assuming, and it seems to be a con
servative estimate, that these visitors
will each spend two dollars among the
retail stores f the city, it will be seen
that our local merchants will enjoy
Ihe stimulating effect incident to an
increase in their cash sales of several
thousand dollars a day which will re
sult from the increased facilities for
traveling enjoyed by the interurban
"Considering the benefits to be de
rived from the interurban railways
every effort should be made by Spring
field merchants and citizens to encour
age Ihe lines that propose entering the
city. It is doubtful if our merchants
could do better than to organize or
to if?e the organization now in exis
tence for this purpose and to stimu
late trade and travel along these lines.
They can do the latter by judiciously
and. persistently keeping before the
people of these districts the advan
tages to be gained by bringing their
trade to Springfield, and thus not only
encourage the interurban lines to fur
nish the best possible accomodations
for their patrons, but vastly increase
the general amount of business done
in this citv."

Ashbiirnhain, Out., April IS. 1903.
I think it is only right that I should
tell you what a wonderful effect
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has pro
duced. The day before Faster I was
so distressed with a cold and cough
that I did not think to take any du
ties the next day, as my voice was
almost choked by the cough. The
same day I received an order from
you for a bottle of your Cough Pem
edy. I at once procured a sample
bottle and took about three doses of
the medicine. To my great relief the
cough and cold had completely disap
peared and I was able to preach
three times Easter day. I know that
this rapid and effective cure was due
to your Cough Pemedy. I make this
testimonial without solicitation, being
thankful to have found such a God
sent remedy. Pespeet fully vours,
