has demonstrated that he has a tendency
for self -improvement. During his leis
ure moments the other day he kept ac
count of bis trips up and down, and from
that figured tbe exact distance he travel
ed that day, and also the amount of wat
er used in running the water motor that
hruns the elevator. Here it is : Number
of trips in the forenoon, 128; Dumber of
trips in the afternoon, 15G; total, 284
trips. Height of elevator shaft, 36 feet;
actual distance traveled, two miles, 1,409
feet. Barrels of water used by motor,
It is pretty good for a boy of his age,
and indicates that his highest ambition
is not to run' an elevator, lis will be

day, or perchance inventing a flying ma

Washington. D. C , March 21. 1S92.
Henry T. Denison, Secretary Business
Men's Association. Davenport, Iowa
My Dear Sir: The resolution of your
association in regard to the location of
tbe Hennepin canal received. It accords
exactly with my ideas, and I can assure
you that I have keDt down this
question of location much longer than
you would imagine, and for the very
reason that you suggest. This question
of location was sucgested in the war de
partment to me before the appropriation
of the last congress was made, and I then
realized that if that was opened up it
would hazard the whole projret, and I
Ubed every endeavor that I couid to keep
it d.iwn. I can assure you aud the asso
ciation throuah you that I shall do every
thing ia my power to make the project a
success lours very truly,
