THE OTHER DAYS

Recently H. D Mark, who in those
other days when to many fond asso

freight and passenger agent and W.
C. Brown was dlvleton superintendent,
there developed a bond of friendship
betwei-n the two which has e-.idured
to this day. Mr. Brown has since
advanced to the- presidency of the

Mr. Mack has changed from the Bur

cordial, and what is also fortunate
he is stiil in Rock Island. But he
does not forget the old days, nor his
old friend. Nor does his old friend
in New York forget him. I'nlike many
railroad men there is a good deal of
tin? sentiment In W. C. Browa and he
love in fancy to be taken back
to those other times when he was
working just as hard as he is today,
but in more humble capacity.
Mr. Mack knows this and recently
when The Argus published a group
of old time Hock Island -engineers
ith a little story of how they con
gregate regularly at the New Har
