The Down Towo l"ark Is Kant Heing
Every day of summer makes Garn
sey square more beautiful. ' The
Tass is growing nicely, anil under
the watchful care of Park Commis
sioner Buncher everything is being
done to make it more attractive. A
large number of the ornaments are
in place, several of them arriving to
day. The pretty new drinking foun
tain donated by the Davenport &
Rock Island Street railway company
arrived this morning and was un
packed. It is indeed a handsome
ornament, and will be set in the east
triangle near the center of the
square. Several of the other vases
namely those donated by Kahlke
Bros'. F. C. A. Denkmann. Warnock
& Ralston and Raible x- Stengel ar
rived today, also, and they will all
be set up as soon as possible.
The four entrance pieces in the
form of vase pedestals which were
donated by C.J. Larkin and cut from
designs furnished bv H. Posse, of the
e-overnmont engineers' office, are now
being put in. Like the other orna
ments to the handsome down-town
square they will he artistic in ap
pearance and workmanship. The
park is being well patronized and is
visited each eeiiing iy large num
bers who take a pride in the manner
in which it lias been improM-d.

lector must limit himself to some special
field. The one refit thinK to collect, nt all

is home information. The names of our

How Stations Have Orown.
Recalling railroading one of our citizens
remarked how odious he used to consider
the ride up the lower road 20 years ago
with its numerous stops. Yet in those
days there were only 19 stations, while now
there are 27 if we have not missed a few in
the count. Then the first station out from
l'hiladelphia was Angora, while now that,
is the fourth or fifth. In those days all
the braking was done by hand. At some
stations the cars would stop all right and
everybody would be happy. At others the
train would run past the station and would
have to yo back. Then there would be a
racket between the engineer and brakernen
as to whose fault it was, and rei.1 hard
words would pass.
With the present number of stations they
would have to commence to back before
they left one station in order to haul up in
time for the next. The length of the road
is given at 27 miles and a fraction. This
makes an average of about a station to the
mile. We huve a way of endeavoring to
avoid those trains which make all the stops.
