Rumors not (infrequently lead on 1o
facts, but in the case of the Diamond Jo
line's reported desire to dispose of the
boats Mary Morton and Libbie Conger, it
seems they lead out into the wilderness
where the wild winds blow. The two
boats named are among the most popular
and well conditioned of the Diamond Jo
fleet, and as tbey are both speedy boats,
the Mary being unusually, fast, there
seemed to be no sufficient reason for their
disposal by the present owners unless it
was a signal for desertion of the upper
riyer by the Diamond Jo line, a letter
from Capt. John Killeen cooks the goose
of this last rumor. Pilot Jules Calhoun,
of Burlington, well known as the Mary
Morton's reliable wheelman, heard some
time ago of the reported intention of sell
ing his favorite craft, and wrote at once to
Capt. Eilleen requesting the removal of
certain private property which Calhoun
had upon the boat. Tuesday the pilot
received a reply from Capt. Killeen,
who slated positively that there had
been no thought on the part of the com
pany of selling either the Mary Morton
on the Libbie Conger, and that any ru
mors to that t fleet were entirely ground
less, as the boats were both serviceable
and satisfactory to tbeir present owners.
The boats have not been advertised for
sale, nor have any negotiations to that
end existed ia fact, reiterated Judge II.
O. Browning when questioned upon the
subject, and there is little reason to he
ieve, at this time, but that tha trim Mary
Morton and the staunch Libbie Conger
will pass and repass Rock Island for many
seasons yet to come .
Advices are to the effect that the new
government snag boat. "McPherson," re
cently turned out by the Iowa Iron works,
and touching at Rock Island several
weeks ago en route to its field of labors
on the Missouri river, is still at St. Louis,
as has been hitherto expected owing to
absence of water signs on the Big Muddy.
The McPherson is a first class boat of its
kind, and a model of interior convenience,
but there is one serious fUw upon her.
according to Mtte Jim Boland's ideas of
a steamboat. She has but one slack. and
it is painfully promiuent, towering above
the boiler deck in its single blessedness
about 10 feet higher than established
precedent provides, and being geared
with a break and a hinge at the middle so
that it can be lowered for bridges.
Jim's opinion of the stack waa aptly
expressed, in the bearing of & Burling
ton Gazette man, while the boat lay there.
lie was leaning against the capstan.
with his hand in bis p ckeM, when
some curious visitor stopped on deck an I
gazsd upward with the q iery:
"What is the matter with the smoke
Jim does not. as a general rule, answer
foo'ish questions, but this one seemed to
arouse him strangely.
Nothing," he replied, ' except that
it's the cussedest, meanest lookin' stack
that was ever stuck on a good steamboat.
Did ye ever see a pig as had one ear
chewed off? Well, it wuz the oneriest
lookin" pig in town, wuzn't it? Yes, it
looks jist like a steamboat with only one
stack. I don't like it." And James
closed bis iron jaw with a snap upon a
goodly wedge of navy plug, and said no

"Houlahan's Railroad Band Hoot, an
Instructive Treatise On Railroading," is
the title of a little book which has just
come from the press of a Kausss City
publishing house, and which, as the

of the Burlington system. The book,
after briefly tracing in its preface the au
tbor's maty positions in tte railway ser
vice, enters under proper chapters into a
treatment of the best course for a young
man to pursue who goes into the railroad
business to advance. Mr. Houlahan, who
has himself risen from the lowest to one
of the highest rounds by the Btrict an
plication of the principles which he
lajs down in his work, gives a general
review of the duties of every position in
railroad employ from beginning up, and
the book cannot fail to be otherwise than
instructive to tbe reader; in a word it is
guide to success in railroading. Inde
fatigable industry, ambition, sobriety and
intelligence are what have made Mr.
Houlahan what he is, and his readers will
