DUY A NEW TRACT
Rock Island Road Will Establish
Stock Yards East of Vil
lage of Silvis.
RESIDENTS MADE OBJECTIONS
Strip 20 Rods Wide on South Side of
Tracks Secured at Cost of $300
Objections on the part of citizens of
Silvis have led the Rock Island road
to purchase a tract of land three-quarters
of a mile east of that village on
which to locate the stock yards which
win be removed there from Geneseo.
It has been planned to establish the
yards on the land the company bought
at the time the site for the big shops
was purchased, but the residents de
cided that stock yards in the near vi
cinity of their homes were undesirable.
The tract purchased for the yards Is
located along the south side of the
tracks for half a mile west of Carbon
The width of the land Is 20
rod3. The purchase price is under
stood to have been approximately $31)0
an acre. .,
Hotel Too Small.
Railroad men. who have been, forced
to remove from Natick to Silvis be
cause of the recent ' change of head
quarters are making complaint of the
conditions they have to meet.
The new hotel has already been
shown to be too small. It is crowded
and Its facilities overtaxed. Conse
quently the eervice suffers In. compari
son with that given by the Y. M. C. A.
establishment at Natick. The cost of
living at Silvis, too, is higher than at
Officers of the company point out
that some inconvenience is inevitable
in making a change of the kind and ex
tent of the one just completed, and the
employes are being cared for as well
as possible. By spring It is hoped that
matters will have become adjusted so
that living conditions will be at least
as favorable as they have been at Natick.

Head Clerk C. W. Hawes has practi
cally completed the statistics relating
to the business transactions of the
Modern Woodmen of America for the
year 1905. The head clerk prefaces his
complete resume of the society's trans- i
actions with the observation that "on
a certain occasion a distinguished per
son, commenting on a memorable
achievement, remarked, 'There is
glory enough for. all.' This remark
may be properly applied, I think, to the
splendid achievements cf our society
during the year 1903.
"We may well inquire: What is our
justi! cation for the success achieved?
Is it deserved? Has it been won fairly
and squarely? The answer may be
found in the following summary:

"This record, I take it, justifies our

prosperity and popularity, its magni
ficent success during the year just
Comparing the mortality record of
1905 with 1904, it is found that there
was an increase in number of deaths
reported during the last year of 53,
but a decrease in the amount of insur
ance carried of $G2,000. There were
20 more claims paid in 1905, but the
amount of loss represented by claims
paid was $77,635.99 less than in 1904
an unusually favorable showing. At
the close of business for 1903, claims
outsanding and unpaid aggregated
$G58.519.04. as against aggregate out

Htnry Voege yesterday began the

tive appearance. The work will not
be finished until the first of the month.
Additional lighting is being installed in
