One of those queer cases of deception
that are eo often met with, occurred at the
syndicate power station the other day
which furnished no little amusement for
the few who witnessed it. The after
noon was quite cool and the wind was
blowing briskly, when a well dressed
lady came tripping down Second avenue
As she neared the power station she
looked about her a moment and then
made a littltt run toward the buildint: and
stood in one of the doorways looking up
at the sky. She re.na'ned there several
minutes looking around, until Engineer
Gowlin finally noticed her and stepping
up he politely asked her if she wished to
On, no sir, she replied, "I just
stepped here to get out of the rain
Glancing out of the window the engineer
saw the sun shininsr. and realizing that
the ludy had been mistaken he told her
to follow him aroui d to another door
which she did and he led her out into the
sunlight where it wasn't raining. Sne
was almost bewildered when she beheld
the transformation, but on being told by
the gentlemanly engineer that she had
been deceived by the condensing s'eam
from the exhaust pipes the lady blushed
like a school girl and after begging a
thousand pardons hurried on down town.
l resident LiOuderbacK adopted a wise
course when he for .id the display of ad
vertisements on the outside of his cars.
He would have carried the rule to further
good effect had be included the interior
of the Cars as well. Originally the cards
so displayed were placed with some de
gree of uniformity, but then racks, were
introduced for the placing
of some or wbch the arrange
ment of the bell cord attachment was al
tered. Then another Kind of ract was
tried and now in some of the cars the ad
veriisements are not confined to the racks,
but,are displayed a'love them; the next
thing the entire interior of the cars will
be littered with them, and the company
will not know whether it or the adver
tising agent owns the cars. The adver
tisements should bo arranged systematic
ally in a rack of uniform size and ap
pearance adapted and insisted on, and no
cards allowed outside of them .
lhe company has evidently taken no
steps to provide winter uniforms for the
men. At lest there are no indications
whatever of such a course at present
Joseph's coat of old would not be in it
with the variety of colors that ornament
the car platforms these diys.
The company, it is understood, has or
dcred a new model of fare boxes on all
the cars. This does not mean, of course.

port. A man goes over the lines there
and strews the tracks with sand. This
seems to be the only way to keep them
f.-ee from the leaves and litter and mud
that gather on them and cause cars to

hands of some aesthetic young lady, hfts

way to deal with it is to sweep it off and

The liberal disposition of the tri-city
street railway company as regaids pav
ing improvements is appreciated when
contras'ed with that of the railways in
other towns. At Uanyille, III., for in
s'ance. Hon. J. G Cannon owns the rail
way, and a dispatch from that city, says
Two mile of brick paving have been
nut in on Vermillion and Main streets
this season by special taxation of abutt
ing property owners. The Danville
street railroad, which is owned and con
trolled by eX'.Congressman Cannon
runs on these streets. The ordinance
requires the street car company to pave
between its rails at the same time.

citizens. Yesterday afternoon the nty
