Contrary to the impression that has
prevailed in some quarters, the Rock
Island-Buffalo Prairie-Muscatine Inter
urban is not dead. It is not even sleep
ing. The men who have taken the
lead in promoting it have never ceased
in their activities, but 'have been balk
ed by certain unavoidable delays. One
of these has been the failure to get the
detailed report of the engineer. The
survey has long been completed, cov
ering a route between Rock Island and
Muscatine and passing through the
southern part of Buffalo Prairie town
ship. Data collected by the engineer,
however, has not yet been compiled,
and this work is still in progress. It
is expected to be finished within a few
weeks, and then a meeting wiy be held
in this city to see what Rock Island is
going to do about it.
Rafse S200.OOO la Country.
One of the men interested said today
that the country stands ready to in
vest $200,000 in the line and that if
Rock Island does as well the road will
be built. What is "more, he was satis
fied that it would be a paying venture.
A well known contractor has signified
his willingness to undertake the work
of building the road as soon as. there Is
$250,000 In sight.
Before anything further is done, how
ever, it will be necessary to have some
assurance as to terminal facilities in
this city, this being one of the most
difficult problems confronting the pro
moters. Some advocate taking over
the Belt line project and carrying the
whole thing through as a joint enter
prise, the terminal to be built with a
view of throwing it open to all roads
that wish to use it. It is believed that
such an arrangement would make it
materially easier to bond the interur
ban. Look (or Coal.
Independent investigations of the
coal resources in the lower end of the
county are likely to be made this fall,
and in the event that a good deposit is
found, there isoio doubt that it will be
an easy matter to finance the proposed

road would open Is remote from that

adopted it as deserving her careful at

There are three large lilies toppfng
a rrther slender stem and the perfume
th flowers give out is exquisite. The
odor can hardly be described but is
most like that which would come from
a huge bank of mixed tube roses, carna
tions and other sweet smelling flowers.
V. ."len the plant is allowed to remain !
iu a room any length of time, it soon
fills the atmosphere with sweetness.
Each of the flowers is about nine
inches in diameter and contains petals

C;ver the inside of the petals and make

expected to remain In bloom more
than a week more after which the
stalk will die down and there will be no
mere flowers for a year or even two,
probably the latter, because the flower
v. a.T never meant to bloom in this part
o the world.
It received its name "sacred, white
lily of Japan" from the fact that it was
much used at places of worship in
