spring wtich gives every evidence of
containing rare medicinal properties. Tbe
spring is lecated near the foot of the
tower on M e south side, and the ground

The Rock Island Hridjce.
Thatthe toadways of the Rock Island
bridge have been in a measure unsafe for
some time has been a matter of seriaus
concern to many of our public spirited
citizens, aDd Congressman Cable has been
working earnestly for an appropriation
sufficient to make the necessary repairs.
There were good reasons why it was
proper that no undue publicity be given
the discovery which Col. BafSngton had
made in his inspection of tbe bridge, but
the Chicago Tribune of today makes the
matter public property, and here it ie:
The commanding officer of the Rock
Island arsen il made a critical examina
tion of Uc bridges and reported to the
war department that in consequence of tbe
decay of the wooden joists the roadways
are in unsafe condition for the increasing
traffic between Rock Island and Daven
port and recommended that new metal
joists be put in. For this purpose he
estimates thut an appropriation of $50,-
000 should bi immediately available. In a
communication to congress today the
secretary of war and chief of ordnance
ask that the appropriation be made .

sorely perplexed. The grievous question
which is disturbing the poor boss' brain,
is how in tht face of the multiplicity of
the evidence presented ever since TriK

reinstate him aad yet make his customary
report to the department at Washington
that he has ciade full investigation of the
charges alleged and found them unfound
ed. And th n again, on the other hand.
the boss is presented with the conun
drum: "Now, if the suspension of this
carrier to is made permanent, can the
acts of certa n others of my carriers be
overlooked men have been bounced
from the serv.ee in the past for offenses
less serious tt an any of these under my
regime." Tt us the countenanced acts of
his subordinates smite the poor boss
whichever war he turns. Truly uneasy
lies the bead that wears the crown in
the Reck Island postofflce these days.
