THE UN1UN DEPOT.
The Bt-ck Island's Improvementa
do Not Retard it.
The CM J Bi qalreMeata Xt t bn Hrt

Oae Read A Keerasly
"Don't you tLink," said a well posted
citizen to an Abod representatiye in a
street car this morning, "that the im
provemenU the Rock Island rotd is about
to make about its depot prtmises on Mo
line avenue clinches its position with reN
erence to a union depot in Rock Island T'
The re porter 's reply was that from what
he bad learned from those in a position to
know an the force of public opinion, the
union depot project had become too far
advanced to be hampered by the attitude
of any one road.
"But t j tell the truth," the spokesman
continue !, "I don't believe the Rock Isl
and road has any idea of going into a
union depot here. The road in fact does
not appear to consider it an advantage to
run into a union depot in our middle class
cities. His is shown at Des Hoines.snd
also at leoria, as well as in our own city.
Now, you see the road proposes to spend
$3,600 in improvements in Rock Island,
raising its depot buildings, pav
ing about them. etc., and
while lie road lis to be commended
for its public spirit and pride, it will be of
the nature of a public disappointment if
its improvements are to be construed to
indicate the road's position as regards a
down town union depot in Rock Island."
The ijiova does not believe the posi
tion of tae Rock Island road will seriously
affect Rock Island's union depot project
either wiy. The city is positive in its de
termination to have a union depot cen
trally lozated and convenient to all, and
it my Sifely be assumed that when it is
construe ted the Rock Island will run at
least sone of its trains into it. And
even were the road to land all its trains
in a dov n town depot. convenient to its
patrons, its upper depot would be of ser
vice to it and an accommodation . to a
large portion of our people. In cities
scattered over so much territory as Rock
Itland its it is not uncommon for a rail
road to have its stations at convenient
places away from the union depot. '

Oa Saturday evening shortly after 5
o'clock blue line car 37 in charge of Mo
term an Cyrus Foster was going down
Fourth avenue, when just above Twelfth
street the motorneer noticd a lady start
ing across the tracks at that point. He
sounded his gong and shut off the cur
rent, letting the car's momentum carry it
along, and as the lady had plenty of time
to get over the tracks he did not set the
brake. As she did not seem to heed the
noise of the gong and was moving so
slowly that she could scarcely get across
ahead of the car, it flashed across bis
mind that the lady must be deaf, and be
immediately set his brake wiih all poasi
ble speed, but the car was still running
at a pretty good speed, and the motoro
neer saw that she could not possibly get
over the tracks in time, so bracing bis
foot on the guard of the cir he leaned out
as far over the platform as possible and
as be reached the lady he pushed her
quickly from the track. She fell on her
face on the ground and was badly shaken

Jt-aai-da the Kvea.a Paper. ' "
The afternoon newspaper has made
wonderful strides in the observant recol
lections of men who are yet only in the
igor of newspaper work. The general
public when the subject is called to its
attention will also remember and admit
this wonderful progress. Time was, not
many years ago. when the evening paper
was looked upon as only the auxiliary of
the morning paper. Ao illustration pre
sents itself.: In a a city something more
than 25 years ago three morning papers
were published. Each of these papers
also printed a small evening edition and
each of a different name from their morn
ing sponsors. These small sheets were
merely feeders snd subordinates of L the
morning journals. How different it is
today, and it is not necesshrr to go away
from our own city and sute to demon
strate it. Today the eenin n i n

ing papers and in almost every city in
the land outstripping the morning papers
in circulation, in advertising patronage,
and in the hearts and homes of the Amer
What is true as tbeConstitution-Dem
ocrat relates of Keokuk may be said
with equal emphasis of Rock Island and
of every other go ahead city in the land.
The evening paper baa run way ahead of
its morning contemporary, both in circu
lation and advertising patronage. As an
exchange says: .
The masses in the city like the after
noon paper. They can read the news
briefly aud graphically given from all
parts of the world on the afternoon of the
very day it occurs in tue quiet of the
evening after the daj's work is done.
Life is too short to many people in this
busy world to spend much time during
the preparation for business in the
morning in bothering the mind about the
news of yesterday. Today's news is
what people want now anl they will
have it, if i! i to be bad. How in it to
be had? The people have fouid out how
to answer this question for themselves .
By taking a live, newsy afternoon paper.
Business men, too, who have studied
the art of advertising much or little, have
learned a lesson from this tide in the af
fairs of evening journalism. Tiiey have
found that the evening paper being the
popular journal with the people is the
paper iu which to place their advertise
ments. It catches the eye quickly and is
read by double as many peop'e the very
objects an experienced and judicious ad
vertiser desires it attain.

figures can possibly be from the very nature

bacterial diseases are so difficult to control?

Ona Way to Spell Potato.
Considering the state of the crops and
the anxiety expressed by our English
cousins about our spelling, the following
exercise may be appropriate. Who invented
it is unknown to me, but it sounds like Dr.
Wayland, of Philadelphia, a "fonetik par
son:" "What does this spell Ghoughphth
theightteeau?" Well, according to tha
following rule, it spells potato: Gh stands
for p, as in the last letters of hiccough;
ougb for o, as in dough; phth for t, as in
phthisis; eigh stands for a, as in neighbor;
tte stands for t, as in gazette, and eau
stands for o, as in beau. Thus you have
