The Joliet News says '-Rock Island
is getting ahead of Joliet. The one
feature in particular is a street
sprinkler run by tlectricity. To see
it makes a Joliet man ask where we
arc at. The apparatus is really a
fine affair, carries tons of water and
wets the streets b th sides, front and
rear. Though run over the street
car tracks the property owners along
the street pay for the sprinkling.

Speaking of the street railway sys
tem in general, the News says:
Our Street Railway System.
The street car system of Rock Isl
and is evidently in energetic hands.
The lines are n microtis, cars make
frequent trips, and the conductors
and motormen are pleasant as pie.
Aurora has as good cars and tracks,
but as a drawback possesses the
most crusty, diso diging, pompous
lot of snobsand aristocrats to han
dle the cars ever assembled. It is
the greatest pleasure of employes
who think they ought to be presi
dents of the road to make trouble for
the customers of the company. In
Rock Island actually, a News man
with his own eyes saw a motorman
carry a large trunk for a couple of
servant girls from his car to the front
gate of their new place, and lie did
it as naturally as an Aurora car man
would twirl his mustache. It seems
it is part of the serv'ce in Rock Isl
and to carry baggag ; for which one
re is charged.
sland empanv has laid
a track to liiaek liawk s lower, a

One of the most exhilarating
amusements provided at the tower is
a toboggan slide rut ning from the
top of the hill into the river. The
passengers take seats in an ordinary
flat boat. The attendant lifts a
catch or dog that holds the boat and
down go the passengers at a speed of
SO miles an hour or more carrying
them nearly across he river. The
boat has runners up n its sides tit
ting a greased track, but instead of
diving into the water at the bottom
of the slide as some might suppose
the bow rises and ti e boat skims
over the surface of the water with
a swishing" sound like the rush of
a rocket. The boat is drawn back by
electricity taken tn ui the trolley
wire of the car line.
