Street Railway KarnineH.
The street cars on this side of the
river are doing about the same
amount of business they arc shown
to have done at this time of the year
in the past. On the other side, how
ever, there has been a vast falling
off. The receipts have been sus
tained by the earnings of the Tower
line, otherwise they have been cut
in two in the middle. The closing
of t he factories and shops in Rock
Island ami Moline has done it.
To be sure the closing down of
the factories on this side of the
river has cut a big hole in the street
railway profits, but still the lines
over here are getting along nicely,
and making enough, as they have
been obliged to ever since the svndi-
I cate acquired possession, to keep
the cars on llie other side .of the
river, as well as here, moving. The
reason there is no visible falling off
in the receipts in Davenport is there
has never been anything to speak of
there to fall oft.

The J. 8. K.
The Jacksonville Southeastern
road has drawn upon itself the
ire of its more powerful neighbors
and is evidently in for it, judging
from the following special from Chi
cago: If ever a railroad had a lively fu
ture in view that road is the Jackson
ville Southeastern. It has long been
regarded with the bitterest feelings
by the other western lines, and now
that it has been dropped by the At
chison, the Western Passenger asso
ciation lines have whetted their
knives and are after it with Mood in
both eyes. A proposition to boycott
it has already been made, and will be
referred to Chairman Caldwell upon
his return from New York in the
early part of next week. The general
opinion of the eastern passenger
lines is strongly agninst boycotting,
but in this instance it happens to run
the other way with remarkable unan
imity. The Alton is merely waiting
the action of the association before
beginning an active campaign against
the Jacksonville Southeastern. The
road has been meddling with eastern
as well as western rates, and as a
consequence it is without many
friends, east or west.
Yet it is now said that the C, R.
I. & P. roatl has made a traffic alli
ance with the J. S. E. road, by which
the J. S. E. gets to Chicago over the
Rock Island tracks from Peoria, and
the C, K. I. & P. gets to St. Louis
over the J. S. E. tracks. It is not
likely that this arrangement will in
terfere with the building of the J. S.
E. in this direction.
How the Forget meuot Was Named.
Everybody knows the pretty little forget
menot and likes t lie flower more perhaps
because of its name than its, ln-auty. . How
was it so called!1 The (it-minus account for
it by-quit.- apathetic romance It seems
that once iimu a time u knight and a lady
were wnl l:i iik by the bunk of the Dannlie
when the latter asked her 'Valiant fray" to
pluck for her a tiny blue flower which she
saw Krowiui; in t he st n am. Xo sooner said
than done, lint the kn!i;ht, overbalancing,
fell into the river, and nwimrtn the slip
pery nature of the bank and the weight of
bis own armor was carried away by the
current. As be threw the flowers ashore
to his lady ! cried out with his last
breath, "Versiiss mein nicht!" ("Forgetnie
not!") And ever since the flower has been
looked on as the emblem of fidelity. Phil
