The publicspirited citizsns of Rock
Island who have labored zealously for
the securing of the right of way for the
J. S, E road into Rock Island have te
cared nearly all the frontage necessary
to insure the road, but more must be had
yet before the majority is obtained.
O.her cities hereabouts are making stren
uous efforts to attract this road away
from Rock Island, and it is hardly possi
ble that any legitimate effort will be left
undone to insure the entrance of the sys
tem into the city. However, what evtr
work is done must be done at once.
The articles ot incorporation of tbe
Standard club ot Rock Inland were filed
for record 3esterday in the recorder's
office. The object of the Incorporation
is the literary and social advancement of

It should be rerrembered that the tower

President Louderback, of the street
railway syndicate, has given notice that
hereafter no employe of the company
shall appear on a car either in the capac
ity of motormin or conductor, if only for
a trip, without at least a regulation cap
and badge, and where he is a regular
man he must be fully uniformed. Pres
ident Louderbuk is right in enforcing
such a rule. There is no object in at
tempting to insure neatness and uniform

ting one to spoil it all The rule of course
is not applicable to learners. It should

This paper is not inclined to agree with
the Duke of Marlborough altogether in his
estimate of 'the comparative charms of
English and American women. It thinks
that the benevolent faces, the soft voices,
the gentleness and reverence of English
women and their fine repose are beautiful.
Nowhere have homes been happier than in
England, and it is tbe Englishwoman who
has made them. She is naturally patient,
self sacrificing, religious and essentially
maternal. If she has a serious fault it is
that she has not perceived that her first
duty is to herself. She has lived whatever
ife her husband or her sons desired her to.
She is temperamentally submissive. And
in consequence she has too often lost the
admiration of tbe men for whom she made
these very sacrifices, which have incurred
their contempt. If a woman wants others
to think well and admiringly of her she
must think well and admiringly of herself.
This is not vanity. It is appreciation.

The prisoner at the bar was a foreign
