TO SHORTEN LINE
Forty Mile Reduction Between

DOZEN TOWHS ABE CUT OUT

Hrings Mileage Down to
The Koek Island road is to shorten
its rente between Chicago and Kansas
City. The cut is to be made in the
terrifi ry extending from Nunia, Iowa,
to Trenton, Mo.
If the plans that have been agreed
upon by the engineering department
are carried out, the present mileage
will be reduced about forty miles.
This will make the distance from
Chicago to Kansas Cijy 477 miles, as
against the Milwaukee's .1(19 miles, the
Chicago & Alton's 4s. the Chicngo

but none of them amounts to very
much from a business point of view.
They will still be included in the road's
territory, as the intention to designate
the old line from Numa to Trenton a
top Makinr op Time.
The Noi l hwestci u railway has. is
sued an order that under no circum
stances shall passenger trains exceed
their schedule speed. No matter how
late a train may be. the engineer must
not make up time by running faster
than his schedule calls for. All trains
that become late on any portion of
their trip must arrive at destinations
The explanation is male that the
management does not care to risk dis
aster which might occur on account
of fast running in an effort to make
up !o-t time.
It is gei;eral!y admitted that winter
schedules on all roads are too fast,

ter of congratulations to the manu
facturers of Chamberlain:; Cough
Hemedy as follows: Sixteen years
ago, when our child was a baby, he
was subject to croupy spells and we
wcuild be very uneasy about him. We
began using Chamberlain's Cough
Hemedy in l'S?. and finding it such a
reliable remedy for colds and croup,
we have never been without it in the
house since that time. We have five
children and have given it to all of
them with good results. One good
feature of this remedy is that it is
not disagreeable to take and our ba
bies realty like it. Another is that it
is not dangerous, and there is no risk
from giving an overdose. I congratu
late you upon the success of your
remedy. For sale by all druggists.

Will be Elevation of Rev. Fawcett
to Quincy Episcopal
VERY YOUNG FOB, HIGH HONOR
Is Fond of Athletic Amusement
Though ft Conscientious
The ceremonies incident to the con
secration of Hev. M. Edward Fawcett
as Episcopal bishop of the diocese of
Quincy will take place in Chicago,
Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 10:30 in the
morning, and the place is St. Bartholo
mew's church, at Sixty-seventh street
and Normal Park avenue as announc
ed in Tuesday's Argus. This is the
parish in which Dr. Fawcett has been
serving as rector for two years. It
had been originally planned to have
the ceremony on St. Bartholomew's
day because of the church name, but
a postponement became necessary.
Now after some delay a date has been
absolutely determined and the pro
gram of consecration has been agreed
upon. Bishop Daniel Sylvester Tuttle,
of St. Louis, will preside. He is one of
the pioneers of the church and was
consecrated in 107. Bishop Isaac L.
Nicholson, of Milwaukee, and Charles
Palmerston Anderson, coadjutor of
Chicago, will be the assistants. The
presenters will be Bishops Samuel C.
Edsall, of Minneapolis, and A. L. Wil
liams, of Omaha. Neb. The preacher
will be Thomas F. (Jailor, of Memphis.
Tcnn. The attending priests will be
Hev. F. J. Hall and Dean W. D. Moore,
It will be a notable gathering of
dignitaries of the church and will be
attended by impressive and holy rites.
All the clergy of the Quincy see sire
also expected to be present. As soon
after the consecration as possible
Bishop Fawcett will remove to Quincy
ami take up the aclive work f the dio
One of tbe Voonrrrl.
Bishop Fawcett is one of the young
est of the clergy ever elevated to a see.
He was burn Nov. 1, 1S65 All Saints'
day at New Hartford. Iowa. He is,
therefore a deacon on the sunny
side of 40. His father was Hev. Dr.
William Fawcett. a pioneer clergyman
of the Methodist faith, who died about
i year since. I lie y oung man reeeiveil
an excellent education ami it was
natural that his training should be in
the direction of the church. Young
Fawcett went through the schools his
village afforded and then entered
Northwestern university at Lvaustoii.
He also completed the theological
course tit tlu I'pper Iowa university, a
Methodist college at Fayette. When
he was L'l he entered the Methodist
ministry anil for in years was a mem
ber of the Hock Hiver conference in
the northern part of this state. He
was recognized as an eloiptent pulpit
man and a bright light in 1he denomi
nation, but as he puts it himself, he
became identified with the Episcopal
creed "for historical and spirit !?al rea
sons." This was in ls;if and the young
minister nt once became active in his
new field. He was in Elgin at the time
and became a lay reader in the Church
of the Hedeemer at that place. May -'().
1SU7 exactly six years to the day be
fore the time of his election to the
Quincy bishopric he was raised to the
deconate. He became a priest Dec.
1.1. 1'.i7. He remained with the Elgin
church until Sept. 1. 1!mi. at which
time he became rector of St. Bartholo
mew's church in Chicago. There he
still remains, and his election to the
bishopric was regretted by many of
the congregation, who. while they be
lieve the churchly honor worthily be
stowed, object to parting with the elo
quent and energetic young man who
tilled the pulpit so ably that the pews
were also tilled.
Liberal In VI wx.
Bi.-hop Fawcett is broad-minded and
liberal. Some of the pioneers in the
church were at first apprehensive over
his election. It created a precedent
new to the church. Here was a young
man. almost a boy. but recently a
convert from the Methodist church,
elevated to a life position as bishop.
Why should he not tarry at Jericho
until his beard be grown?
Furthermore, a bishop is presumed
to be an authority upon law and or-i
dinance of the church. This robust,
healthy, libetal young churchman
looked as if he had paid more atten
tion to football than the writings of
Chrysostom. He did not have the pallid
face or bowed shoulder of the scholar,
rather resembled a man who could
put on the mitts and give a good ac
count of himself in the ring with Cor
bet t. Nevertheless, the new bishop is
a living exposition of the maxim of
Juvenal. "Mens sena in sana corporc."
He believes in a judicious mixture of
brain anil miiscde. He is a hard stu
dent, but he does not neglect Ids
physical training on that account. He
isan enthusiastic yachtsman and is the
owner of the cabin cruiser, "Nymph.
which flits oer the frolicsome waters
of Lake Michigan. He i a member of
the Columbia Yacht club as well as of
the I'niversity club of Chicago. He is
a married man am! has two children.
A babe was born about the time the
consecration had been previously plan
ned. Bishop Fawcett is a writer and trav
eler. He spent the summer of IW2
abroad and has seen much of the
