the contract for the buttons. The de

of course, and has the Rock Island slo

of the club, or the goal of the city Is
emblazoned on a miniature sign board

Professor J. A. L'dden. geologist in
the department of economic geology
and technology In the state university
of Texas, is' in Rock Island and work
ing this dimmer in the emplov of the
state geological survey, completing
work c.hich Las been under wpy ;cv
the past two years in this section
known as the Milan quadrangle. At
the same time the state stirve' If
comple:in- the work on tho torcjrra-
phica! mps for this section.
The Milan quadrangle Is a ue.-tion
extending a little east of Moline,
north a trifle beyond the governmen
island, west three miles beyond Anda
lusia and then south to a line Inter
secting Edwards river. In this sec
tion, the men cf the survey, with
their instruments, get the height of
eve- part of the land to within nvo
feet and then on a map mark every
variation of 20 feet. They also mark
fill rivers borings, mines nnd other
I laces which are t.u interest to those
desiring to study the quadrangle in
detail. These maps are printed by
the state and are sent out for general ,
use to those who need them.
MAKIXG MAP OF SECTION.
Dr. Udden is making a geological
map of this section, finding all of the
outcrops of different strata of rock.
following up the creeks, and noticing j
the various rocks which are to be
found, examining borings and finding!
what strata He beneath the surface,
locating artesian wells nnd making
borings for coal. More than 400 bor
ings for coal have been made in this
quadrangle. This work is now near
ing its completion and by next Janu
ary, Dr. l'dden hopes to have his
work complete and ready for the
; state printer. The maps will proba
I bly be out in about a year as the
work is nearly done.

Similar work has been dono in
many parts of Illinois, especiallv
along the Illinois river, and it !s now
the desire of the state to complete
the work. Some states have their
maps complete while others have not
commenced the work yet. The work,
when complete is very valuable ami
