The improvements for vthe year 190.'$
?in Hock Island aggregated $1,693,800,
a material increase ovezr 1902, when
the total was $1,483,000. j
Despite the discouragjng prospect,
occasioned by the high pjrice of build-
ing materials and the unsettled con
j tiition generally in the'Uvor market,
i the city has gone forward keeping
)t pace with the progr(t?S3 of former
5. years. Contractors express surprise
at the extent of vmprovements in the
j city, for the- state they could not
iiieiij, wnveu weigmng ioe muaiiun

misticView of the year so far as build
ing, 'was concerned. - .
lhe same progress, is to be noted
' i throughout Rock Inland county. Mo

iiiivorabIy with years of the past, while

reconstruction of the No. 6 bridge at
Milan for $10,000, and ordered the re
building of the No. 2 bridge, an im

the amounts expended for the main

adopted," belongs the credif of its prac
tical solution. ITrf conceived the idea
of a distributing canal parallel to the
The advantages of the canal are that
the material from it will be used to
back up the sea wall. Distribution of
material can be effected without an
expensive relay system. Without dis
turbing in the slightest degree the com
merce of the city the whole area can
be filled by the mixture of sand and
water pumped by the great hydraulic
dredges, and the water will run back
into the canal. Another point in the
plan is to take the material for filling
from the channels of the bay, so that
when the dredges back out of the ca
nal, fdllng it up as they go, Galveston
will le left well above the highest flood
line, with her channels improved.
Mr. Lindon Wallace Bates, who orig
inated this plan, is known in his pro
fession throughout the world, though
he Is yet In the early forties. Early
in his career he was constructing en
gineer on many railroads in the west
and later was engaf.J In seaport Im
provement work by the English. Rus

societies and in 1900 received the

services In science."

Pipe Filllnflr aa a Profeaaloa.
There are few ways of earning an
honest penny more strange than that
in which an old conple in the north of
England eke out a scanty Income. Their
little cottage is situated near a large
mine, and every morning the colliers
before descending to their work leave
their pipes and tobacco boxes In the
hands of the old folk. The pipes are
cleaned and filled ready for lighting,
and the miners can come up at the
dinner hour and enjoy a good smoke
without having to expend time In
charging their pipes. They are again"
left to be in readiness for the evening.'
The small weekly charge per pipe!
mounts Into a respectable number of1
shillings at the week's end.

In France the family of Crony Chanel
boasts of descent in direct line from
Adam's third son, Seth. They say at the
time of the deluge Noah took their fam
ily title deeds into the ark. At their
chateau may be seen a picture of that
event, wherein one of the drowning
men waves a scroll above his head on'
which is inscribed, "Save the title
deeds of the house of Crony."
