Taken to Valley Junction.
The erection of the Rock Island shops
at Valley Junction is something not par
ticularly gratifying to the people of Des
Moines. They might have been built in
that city, but for its refusal to strain a
point in the matter of vacating a street
that cut through the company's yards.
The railroad officials, therefore, decided
to build, about five miles west of the city
limits at Valley Junction. It is true the
city decided to grant the use of the street
in question, but the decision came too
late, as the work had already begun.
This year there will be erected at Val
ley Junction a round house with stalls
for 15 locomotives: a machine shop and
blacksmith shop about 160x110 feet; a
ware house 24x55; and an engine and
boiler room. A large frame boarding
house has been built to accommodate the
workiuemen. about 70 in number. The
car thop it is thought will not be begun
this year, as this season is already too
far advanced to allow time for its com
The necessity for a boarding place f o r
workingmen only five miles from the
city limits may not seem apparent to one
not acquainted with the present boundar
ies of J. Des Moines. That city
has annexed nearly bll the farming
districts of Polk county, and hence Val
ley Junction, though only about five mi'.es
from the city limits, is about four times
that distance from urban civilization with
its boarding houses and lunch counters
The company has 30 acres at the junc
tion of level land, admirably adapted to
the purpose it is wanted for. It has two
sets of parallel tracks, one for the use of
the Courjcil Bluffs acd the other of ihe
Fort Dodge divisions. A large contin
gent of employes will be needed for the
plant, and last week a townsite was laid
out by an enterprising speculator, who
intends to build about 20 houses for
Folks at that point are already feeling

Providing: Men for a Rail in London
When a London hostess wishes to give a
ball she is usually forced to apply to cer
tain well known "social providers" who.
themselves of mature aue, are habitually
to be found in these haunts of lieardless
youth, the "Bachelors' " and "Isthmian
clubs. Like t he poulterer, who is desired
to send in so many quails and ortolans
ready trussed for the supper, the provider
will be requested to bring in so many
dancing "men," and it must be owned that
the faultless array in which they appear
does him as much credit as the little birds
aforesaid, each one resplendent in its
waistcoat of fat white bacon or green vine
leaf, rellect credit on the poulterer. Enc
contingent does its duty creditably. The
dancing men are active in the ballroom,
the quails are succulent at supper, and
the comparison might be made still more
closely as regards the amount of bruins
which each contingent may be said to pos
But that these dancing marionettes, who
are certainly ns much hired out by their
provider as if they had liecn sent from the
establishment of the caterer, fulfill what
is expected of them there is no denying.
Whether the' like dancing or not, they
know quite well that th eye of the "social
provider" is upon them, and that if they
do not acquit themselves of the task of
whirling debutante after debutante around
the room their names will Iks struck off
the provider's list and they will sink back
into obscuritv. Mrs. Colin Campbell in

Among the things which no American is
supposed to understand is the constitution
and government of an Knglish public
school. Probably nothing short of being
educated at a public school will ever ex
plain that mysterious sulisl itution of pul
lic spirit for magisterial discipline which
is the essence of the Knglish system, and
even by those who have bei-n so educated it
is a thing rather to li felt than described
it depends, among other things, upon
hitting the golden mean with regard to
numliers. The perfect school will lie
neither too large nor too small. At the
present moment there is no single room in
Eton which will contain the whole school
and even now the unit to be considered :
the house ami not the school. Indeed, with
regard to the majority of English schools,
the question which an anxious parent now
asks is not whether the school is a good
one, but whether the house which is to re
ceive his son liears a good or a bad reputa
tion, nor do the school authorities always
recognize their responsibility to see that
the houses are good. Pull Mull Gazette.

Catarrn Can't be Cared
with local applications, as they cannot
reach the seat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you have to take internal
remedies. Ii -ill's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and sets directly on the blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of tbe best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined with tbe best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. The perfect combina
tion of tbe two ingredients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Bend for testimonials free.
