Rocfc Iilind's union depot proj ct ha6
not bet a lostf eight uf because it has been
quiti ui Inn.. Xtiiiici is it uuad, ui eyeil
slumhedtig. It in axsuininir, Diore tang
ible shape than ever before. Thete are
facts now in the possession of Thk Ar
gcs, which it is nut at liberty to make
known entirely, which warrant this as
sertion, together with the funhcr assur
ance that less than a year's time will
witness the sttainment'of the much de
sired, long anticipated en 1. The Argus
has frequently asserted that Rock Island
ceald have a union depot if it wanted it,
and waald make those wal9 knows in a
deterrr.trud manner. The time has corns
when if R ik Island ever expects to have
a union depot, a decided stand shou.d be
made, and it is gratifying to say that it
now rt quires only t.c aim to secure the
desired end. There are probably none
who real to a preattr stent the desir
ati'.i'j -.ir : iit.c.;a i v of a u.::u lUot
centrally located than the railrcaas luetn
selves The Burlintan depot is located
in a lonely anj unfrequented neijh'j.;r
hood, remote from either Luioe?s or
resideat localities. The Milwaukee
is al! right as fir as lseation is cnerned
but what an uninviting sort of a birut
ure it is to welcome the traveler while
awaiting his train. The Peoria has the
anost creditable djpot in '.be city, and its
locnf'on is good, but its opportunity for
buetuess would be improved, of course, if
its Rock Idland terminal was in a uaiaa
depot entesed by all the other roads, such
as is the case at the Peoria end.
The Reck Island road, which naturally
is the pride of the city, ought to have the
most convenient and the brst depot facil
ities heie of any other road, instead of in
tie avn.t aut ef the way aerahsorhwad.
The one excuse ecvnced by tni.t yeat
road for not running trains down town
into Rick Island has been the lees of
time, and its rfficisls hare often re
marked th:il wita a viaduct over the
Twenty-fourth street tracks so that trains
could rush through to the business cen
ter without interruption it might be
able t. sr-Ivc the r'ifBi-u'ty and comp down
tows v:h i's trtvns'. It c-.Ttaiaty w-u'.d
be more to the advantage of the road to
do so and it is unnecessary to state, would
be more to Rock Island's advantage. As
an illustration of this a conversation which
occurred on a train at the Rock Island
depot the other night in the hearing of
an Argus reporter, may be quoted .
While the west bound train was laying at
the depot a passenger came out to the
door and looking around, said:
"Well, after all I have heard about
Rock Island I thought it was a bisger
place than this. Why it is the city this
road is named after, isn't it? I thought
it was quite a town."
"And right you arc," spoke up a brake
man. "The Rock Island road would not
have named itself after it, if it hadn't
been quite a town. The trouble is we don't
go within a mile and a half of the town.
We're in the city, and right around here
are some of its most important industries,
but the business part of taws is as far
away from here as Davenport is."
"That's queer," said the ealigblened
passenger as he returned to bis seat, and
with an expression of disappointment he
added: - 'I had heard so much about
Rock; Island that I thought I would get a
squiat at the plaee as I went through, but
I see the Rock Island road don't stop at
the city it is named after."
As said before, the union depot is com
ing along all right, and the Rock Island
road will not be out of it long when it
OleO'snn.the gieat Swedish dialect
comedy, will be presented at Harper's
theatre, Roek Island, next Friday sight,
Sept. It. There is always something
laughable about the attempts of foreign
ers to master the English language,' and
to catch on to American slang phrases.
Theatre goers hare been given character
work in German, French, Italian, negro
and Irish dialect to their hearts' content,
but a Swedish dialect is comparatively
sew to the stage. "Ole Olson" brings
oat the struggles of a recent importation
from Sweden, to catch our idioms, and
and therein lies the sovelty of the per
formance. Most plaTS of this kind are
utterly devoid of plot. Not so with
"Ole Olson." It contains an interesting
story which claims the attention of the
spectator throughout the presentation.
The part of "Ole'the flaxen haired Swede
is being played this season by Ben Hen
dricks. The peculiarities of the youth,
fresh from the land of the Viikins, offers
an opportunity for soma quaint comedy
work, as there are many peculiarities of
the national character of Swedish peas
antry, which are both picturesque and
amusing: the unconquerable stolidity of
the race, the simplicity and freshness and
vague sense of humor which occasionly
bieaks through a seemingly hapeless case
of stupidity, unites in formisg a stage
picture which has an element of novelty
connected with it Mr. Hendricks uas
studied the American Swede carefully, and
bis portrayal of the unsophisticated
youth has every where scored pronounced
success. The company is Slid to be the
best t be comedy has ever been supplied
with, and the performance is considerably
brightened by the introduction of several
clever specialties, aanoc which is the

The New Slow Burning Powder.
Guns have lately been built longer in
order to get the fall advantage of the slow
burning powder which is now being used.
This combination of longer gun and slucver
powder gives a higher velocity, which
means in effect not only a' longer range
but also greater penetrative power and de
structive energy on the part of the shot.
With the old pewder the shot received
merely a sharp, short blow that is to say;
the p"wlr sij.Weuly prodaceet a very high
pressure, wbfth sell as seon as the shot
coniaaeiicea its maresnenrt and had a long
gun been empkiyed, the result would
reaHy have been a dhnfuntion Of velocity-.
With the sAow btaruiag' powder a laigli

Natural and Artificial Ualubows.
Rainbows are t ae found- inevery water

Sometimes there are plain sinfrle bows,
soraetfaies double hews (as nt Niagara),
suKR-UuivM l.-ebie bu'.Vi :itiii complete rkijja,
as among the cninrails cf the Voacruite
and the Yellowstone. But falling water
is not essential for their production. Ac
cording to Mr. Froude, there is a rainbow
every night and morning overthe inland of
St. Lucia, in the West Indies. And rain
bows can be made in the laboratory.
