The Davenport Democrat-QatetU pub
libes an extract taken from the account
of tbe first surrey and report for a rail
road bridge across the Mississippi be
tween Rock Island and Davenport, and
printed for the first time in the Philadel
phia Sun in 1845. The survey was made
by Mr. A. C. Fulton, of Davenport, with
a view to the construction of a railroad
to the Pacific coast. At that date there
was not a mile of railrotd west of Cham
bersburgh, east of the mountains in
Tbe report sty? "there are several
points where the Mississippi river can
be easily bridged, the most feasible of
which, Is at the upper rapids, above
tbe city of Davenport, where the river
is narrower han it is at any other point
between its mouth and the falls of St.
Anthony, with bih rock banks and rock
bottom. The channel of deep water vary
ing from 150 to 30 feet in width, the
balance of the distance across at low
water, varying from eighteen inches to
three feet; no low or inundated lands in
the vicinity. To rench this point
through Illinois iu any direction by rail
road will require less grading for the
same distance than any other route in the
union. Two thirds of the distance across
the state is now almost ready to receive
the rails. Nature has leveled the surface
of the prairies, and it is unnecessary for
me to boast of the unsurpassed soil and
Mr. Fulton in his report then proceeds
to give the route and the nature of the
country northwest through Iowa. It
must be remembered that at this period

There was published in the now de
funct Gauette peace to its ashes iu De
cember, 188 1. a communication from the
pen of Mr. Fulton, in which he said:
''To BRcertniu tho practicability of
bridging the Mississippi at the western
end of the city, I proceeded in September'

their basing, and to take soundings

"I will give the critics another opnor
tunity to howl by announcing another
great storm period to occur from Febru
ary 1 to 9 The first of these storms
will be due to cross tUe Mississippi valley
from January 31 to February 2, and is
expected to be of more than ordinary
force in tbe west, reaching its greatest
power about the 4;h on the Atlantic
coast. We cannot sv at what point this
storm will cross the Mississippi river, but
it will be near enough to this place for
tuose snort-siguted critics to see a part of
it. It will probably become a dangerous
storm soon after crossing the Mississippi,
if not before, and it. will do no harm,
perhaps some good, if we keep a watch
for it. A very warm period is luoked for
from the 4th to 6th.
The secoad of these storms will prob
ably cause some trouble on the western
coast about the 4th or 5th. and will be
due to cross the valley fmni the 6th to
8th. It will spend about, all its greatest
force in the west, and is expected to
arrow lighter as it approaches the Atlan
tic coast. A sout ; Atlantic hurricane is
probable from the 1st to the Sib, and at
the same time a cold wave from the
northwest. This cold wave and the warm
wave of about the 4th or 5th are ex
pected to cause the sudden changes re

Times were pretty dull at an up-stairs
gambling room on Perry street last even
ing, lays tbe Davenport Time:
A few of the quiet, immobile faced gen
tlemen known as sports, had dropped up
and in, but nobody proposed a game. A
atranger who was wnlting to take a hand
should a same open, was busily intent in
whlling away the time, on the only game
in which a man can cheat himself soli
taire. He wus interrupted in bis quiet
pastime by a remark from a stranger
across tbe room.
"I'll go the 'rounds' for the house that
I can take a deck of oitds, let you select
a card, shuffle the deck and pick out the
same card every tinm."
"I'll go you," was the reply.
A deck of cards was brought and shuf
fled. Tbe man who aecepied the wager
withdrew a card. It was the ace
of spades. The card was replaced
in tbe pack without tbe shut"
tier seeing It, and all the cards were
shuffled. "On what dny of the
month were you born?" asked" the shuf
fler. "The 6th," was the answer. "Well,
count off six cards, and the last one will
be the one you draw." Ttiis was done,
and tbe sixth card proved to be tbe ace
of spades. The cards were again shuffled,
one was withdrawn, it was replaced, the
deck shuffled and the shuffler asked:
"How old are youT" "Thirty-two," was
tbe reply. "Well, I'll count off thirty
two from the deck, and I'll bet you a
cigar it will be the card you selected."
"Done." The cards were counted off,
and tbe thirty-second one was the ace of
spades. The man looked astonished, the
drinks were passed around and the wiz
zard walked out. A bystander looked at
tbe victim and uttered tbe simple word,
"Sucker." Then be tossed the deck of
cards over to the "sucker," and lo! tbe
entire fifty-two cards were aces of spades!

Thursday and was cordially received by
the genial postmaster, wbo introduced
him to the citizens. Calling on Fred
Wendel, the cabinet maker, we found
him busilv engaged at his shop supply

Mr. Wendel is as bappy as the day is
long and knows a good thing when be

We met John Gribbon, one of the busi
ness men of tbe town, wbo also put his
name down on the subscription roll. We
also met Jobnie Oltmann. an old and
highly respected citizen. We then
called at the home of Attolph Oltmann
and found him a thrifty farmer. Mr.
Oltmann handed in his subscription for
one year. We then passed by the lovely
homes of James and Wm. Cook, but as
it was late wn could not stop.

o'clock. Saturday morning we struck
forth and encountered Wm. Oltmann,
whom we found at bis home suffering
from a severe toothache, but regardless
of that fact he became a subscriber for
the Arous. Mr. Sim Wainright we
found bappy and contented, surrounded
bv his happy family. As it was noon
we partook of a hearty meal and contin
ued our journey. We also bad the pleas
ure of meeting George Wainwright at his
brother s home.
The town of Rapids City is not very
flourishing at present, owing perhaps to
the slack in coal mining. After leaving
the city we made our way to Carbon
Cliff, where we met Mr. Karb. We
fourd bim at his lovely home, contented
and bappy. Mr G. Wbitbeck is also a
prosperous young farmer of the Cliff. We
also met Mr. McDonnell, an old support
er and friend of the Allocs.
We tben called on I. C. Willis, a
staunch democrat and now a supporter of
the Arocs. P. W. Whitbeck is another
true democrat and a reader of tbe best
paper in the county. We met M. G.
Kvans. who subscribed without hesita
tion. The worthy gentleman. C. Amison.

nevertheless he found time to give us bis

Telegraphing Cheaper Than Writing.
There has lately been invented a new sys
tem of synchronism which, it is claimed, will
make it cheaper to telegraph messages than
to mail them. Dr. J. Harris Rogers, of
Washington, D. C, is the inventor, and be
claims that the wor d will be almost revolu
tionized by his disc very. The new system,
Mr. Rogers says, ra uevs the English alphabet
to ten elementary cliaraeters. The messages
are prepared by mmns of a machine resem
bling a typewriter and manipulated in the
same manner. Witij the use of ten keys, one
for each character, imy desirable message can
be written. A test of the uew apparatus was
bold in New York, e ml a message of seventy
six words sent over in twenty-five seconds
and printed utwn a tape in pluin Roman char
acters. Tho inventrr saysthat he can by this
system make one wi;-o do the work that ten
