te4 Yesterday Everyway Bides
The blue line, of the Daren port &
Rock Island street railway syndicate, was
success folly Inaugurated with electricity
asamotire power yesterday, ani the
cars, like those on the Elm street lina,
were crowded all day. It was, financial
ly speaking, a circus day for the syndi
cate. Seven cars were run on the Union
line branch, thia being the equipment in
place of eight horse cars with which it
has heretofore been run. On the red
line where eight cars have also been run
the company expects to get along with
six electric cars. Some difficulty was
experienced yesterday in making the tr'.ps
on schedule time, and there were several
delays on switches owing to the fact that
they have not yet been adjusted to tbe
new arrangement, but the electric cars
were withdrawn today until the changes
in location can be made.
Tbe opening dy was attended by an
accident on Seventh avenue, east of
Thirty-eighth street. This portion of the
track is of the old fashioned flit rail,
such as the Union company used, and
the wet weather and heavy loads caused
a bad joint, and when car 43. coming
from Moline at 4 o'clock, struck the im
perfection, it left the track aca plunged
down the north side of the elevation.
The car with its burden of pas?enger
made the jump head first, and but f"r
the fact that the ground was moist and
that the motor on tbe front axle sank
quickly into it, tbe car would very likelv
have capsized. Fortunately no one WbS
injured, though fifing glass from a broaen
window did mischief in the way of tear
ing tbe clothes of some 'of the passengers
The front platform of the car was some
what disfigured but otherwise no damage
was done. The car was in due time
righted and taken to tbe barn where tbe
proper repairs are being made.
Superintendent Wiliard. of the Thomson-Houston
company s'ated yesterday
that he expected in a week's time to get
the red cars under the railroiJ bridges at
Brooks' crossing. Those bridges ought
to be higher anyway, and it would not
be a bad idea for the council to order
them raised about a foot. The railroads
would no doubt cheerfully acquiesce in the
movement looking not so much to the in
terests of the street cir company ts to the
people of Rock Islmd and Moline who
are to be benefited by all improvements
in the mode of traffic between the two
The same croaker who was most effau
sive in hi6 denunciation of tbe (low-going
horse car, has already been whining about
the speed of the electric cars. Of course
the object of th3 introduction of electiic
cars was to insure faster traffic Tht
was the ot'ject of the investment of
f 350.000 on the part of the s reet rail
way company in the new equipment, and
the man who can'i keep up with tbe pro
cession will have to drop out. The av

Remarkable Aretio Vyag of the Steam
ship Tbetta In Unknown Watera. '
The next day the Thetis overhauled sev
eral whaling vessels, one of which, the
Jane Grey, manned her rigging and cheer
ett for the Thetis, a compliment returned
by Uncle Sm's ship. The Thetis had res
cued the Grey iu IS88, when tbe latter had
been capsized, and the captain of the Grey
had resolved always to honor his preserver;
so up in the Arctic, with the pack only a
mile away, the vessel manned her riggrng
and passed the most stately of marine com
At half past 12 of Sunday, September 8,
the Thetis, standing westward, sighted
Herald Island, high, gloomy and forbid
dinga little, inaccessible rock in the mid
dle of the great Arctic ocean. Ten years
before, almost to the day, Captain De Long
had been caught in the ice where the Thetis
now sailed free; not a trace of ice was vis
able now, the high rock bore but little
snow, and the Thetis plunged along within
two miles of what, until withiu a few years,
had been deemed an outlaying spur of a
vast Arctic contiueut, so seldom had it been
Still westward steamed the Thetis, and
as gloomy Herald Island sank lwhind her

post of an unknown continent. The island
lifted itself up plainly; Berry's Peak tow

aud more gloomy than ever, in the dusk ot
an autumn day.
There were no sails in sight, and Captain
Stockton determined to put about, more
than satisfied with the trip he had made
from Herschel Island to Wrangel Island
within thirty days! Never before had such
a voyage been made.
So the Thetis tumid east want air.-un.

ocean whence it had risen, and the sun
went down and the moon came up: and

ers of the Arctic, and doer of deeds that no

If the wives of our employers were tc
take the trouble to inquire a little closet
into the domestic lives of the men em
ployed by their husbands this world wouliJ
be a far brighter one for many a hard
worked woman who buries her trouble in
her heart and wipes away the only out
ward trateof it with her apron. I know
of an employer whose wife interested her
self in the lives of the people in his store so
that she ascertained the birthdays of theit
wives, their children and even the wedding
days. It was done so quietly and so sweetr
ly that none suspected her purpose, but
now on each festive day in thos fifty odd
families there comes some pleasant rcmem
brance. It is never the same, but always
something that is just needed in that fam
ily at that time.
Every six mouth those husbands find a
little difference in thfir salary envelopes.
At Thanksgiving a splendid bird goes tc

woman has made easier, how many lives
6he has made brighter. None of the wom
en whose paths this one wom.in has sc
pleasantly smoothed has ever seen her! Tc
them she is like an invisible angl of good
ness, but many are the silent priyers that
go up in those fifty homes for her gentle
consideration for others. Edward V. Bok
