Pacific Earnings I
If no news be good news then it is good
LOWS coming from Grand Junction in ref
erence to the opening of the broadgauge
which is to be celebrated in royal style at
the town named The wires are dumb on
the question and there is nothing DOW to
indicate whether the opening will take
place this month or next In one quarter
it is said that the delay is due the non
arrival of certain material which had been
ordered some time ago and which should
have long ere this arrived at its destina
tion Others say there is reason to believe
there is a hen on and that hen
is in Chicago at the present time
It is well known that urgent busi
ness has summoned J H Bennett to Chi
cago and others connected with the vari
ous roads through Cclorado are also tempo
rarily residing In the windy city It was
given out in railroad circles yesterday that
a meeting of some kind was to be held in
Chicago today If it is held the dis
patches of tomorrow may tell the story
A prominent physician and old army sur
geon in eastern Iowa was called away from
home for a few days during his absence
one of the children contracted a severe
cold and his wife bought a bottle of Cham
berlains Cough Remedy for it They were
so much pleased with the remedy that they
afterwards used several bottles at various
times He said from his experience with
it he regarded it as the most reliable pre
paration in use for colds and that it came
tho nearest being a specific of any medicide
he had ever seen For sale by Z C M I

Activity at the Union Pacific yards
A yellow sign not unlike a diphtheria
flag is posted on the Union Pacific passen
per station bearing the legend Men
Wanted Several loafers stood under
yesterday watching the large force of men
employed laying track building ware
houses etc The yards present a very
uusy scene just at present and the utter
lack of room to handlethe business was
never better illustrated Cars are strung
along the line all the way to North Salt
Lake and nearly every inch of track in the
yards is crowded
Will Build Due West
An eastern exchange says that President
Moffatt of theD R G is now in New
York and that his presence in the met
ropolis is in connection with the building
of a railway which will run almost due
west from Denver This would bring it
to some point near NephL It is probable
however that if any road is built Salt
Lake will be due west enough to an
swer all purposes Everybody knows
says the same authority that the Rio
Grande has intended to build a short line
President Moffatt himself many moons
ago told a reporter that the Acequia cut
off would be constructed
The organization of a new corporation to
build the line however is decidedly in the
nature of a surprise It will of course be
under control of the Rio Grande but its
financial affairs will be upon an independ
ent basis Under present circumstances
surmises as to the true meaning of the
move would be little more than
guesses Mr Moffatt evidently proposes
to make the fight against the new line of
the Santa Fe as interesting as possible
He will not only construct his own road
from Grand Junction west but will simul
taneously run an air line out of Denver
The little Wanderers n
Complaints have been heard frequently
in the past few months of some of the Col
orado roads detaining the cars of other
roads beyond a reasonable time Nothing
is so annoying to railroad companies as to
have plenty of equipment and not get the
use of it by reason of other roads using
them month after month instead of return
ing them promptly as they should
A nominal mileage is paid to the owners
of the cars but it does not becin to remu
nerate them for the loss they sustain by
being short of equipment
Alexander Drezmal car accountant of
the St Paul Minneapolis Ohio railway
in conversation with an officer of tho Den
ver Rio Grande said yesterday that 400
cars belonging to his company all sent
previous to last March to a certain road
running into Denver had been diverted
by that road to its own use and all at
tempts at getting them returned had
failed At last it became necessary for
him to come to Denver to see if he could
not dig them out of the oblivion that has
swallowed them up for the past six or
seven months The revelation of his ex
perience provoked the Ric Grande official
to say that the cars of his company had
been detained in the same manner One
instance he cited of a hundred new flatcars
loaded with telegraph poles that were all
shipped prior to August 5 and out of that
number only thirteen had been returned up
to date
It is a settled principle governing the in
terchange of cars between railways that a
car should alwaY3 be returned to the road
or point from which it came so that a car
may always get back to the owner with
the least delay Hitherto that principle
has been observed pretty well by all roads
except in the south where it came to be BO
little observed that many of the great sys
tem refused to bill their cars through to
southern points causing thereby a disad
vantage to shippers from the necessity of
having their goods so frequenCy handled
If the roads in Colorado begin to be care
less about returning cars a line will event
ually be drawn on them and shippers will
bave to suffer
The same official who remarked about
the detention of cars is authority for the
statement that 1250 loaded cars of theD
Si R G are being held in Denver waiting
for connecting lines to take them The
number has increased so rapidly that or
ders had to be given to not run any mere
loads into the city and for fortyeight
hours according to the author of the fore
going statement no cars have been brought
in for delivery to connections by the Den
ver Rio Grande Denver News
Hallway Moves In the South
Mr Babcock the right of way agent for
the Rio Grande We tern was in Manti on
Tuesday on business pertaining to the road
In a conversation held with a few of the
leading men of the cityMr Babcock stated
that most of the grade was finished as far
as Fairview and considerable completed as
far as Spring City Teems are working
night and day at the summit above Fair
view so that the road may be completed as
soon as possible The company have ob
tained the right of way as far south as the
northern boundary of Ephraim precinct
and it was hoped that the balance of the
routewould be obtained in a few days
ManU will be the terminus for the pres
ent Just how long it will be before the
road is pushed further south Mr Babcock
was unable to say He wished to obtain
depot grounds and also water for the en
gines here at Manti and the committee
were left to form their own judgment
where they should have the depot It is
expected that the road will be completed
the middle of December and trains in oper
ation by the 1st of January
When completed it is the intention if the
traffic will justify to run separate passen
ger and freight trains If the company I
sees that the business is not sufficient to
I
warrant it then they will be compelled to
run mixed trains I
It is proposed to run a passenger train
leaving Manti about 6 in the morning and
traveling at the rate of about twenty miles
per hour reaching Salt Lake at noon The
train would leave Salt Lake city about 5
oclock pm and reach Manti about mid
night
Such an arrangement would be of great
sonvenience to the people here as they
joulti thus pay a visit to the capital and re
turn the same day siring them about five
ours in the middle of tho day to transact
business The arrangement would also be
jf special importance to ManU as the com
Mun wauld then be compelled to build
t
t
l
engine sheds and the various other ac
companiments of a railway terminus at
Manti
With a road ac Manti which would bring
goods direct from the east at prices but
little more than that charged for deliver
ing goods at Salt Lake city all of the trade
from southeastern Utah now conducted at
Juab and Nophi would come to Manti
while as a matter of course the Sanpete
Valley would patronize the little giant II I
The road at present will be a narrow
guage but the hope is given that before
long the road will be made to the standard
guage Sentinel
Cable Doesnt Believe It
President R R Cable of the Rock Is
land is in town says the New YorkStocc
broker He says that he has no special bus
iness in New York He is indifferent to
the course of the stock market but be
lieves that the sooner the liquidation is
over the sooner will bottom prices be
reached The Rock Island road President
Cable says is earning full dividends or it
would not pay them The corn crop of
Iowa is over threequarters of an average
crop the farmers are receiving double the
prices of last year and he would be glad to
see corn at 50c and wheat at 81 a bushel all
winter
Speaking of the Atchison road Mr
Cable is quoted as saying in effect that
while that company has acquired the Colo
rado Midland he did not believe that it had
bought the Rio Grande as there was a
limit to the purchasing power of the Atchi
son company

Ho would have been a great artist if
he had come into the world without
hands said Lessing of the painter Ea
phael The remark may contain some
of exaggeration inseparable from en
I thusiasm but it is based on sound com
mon sense which experience has justified
I To our own day belongs a Swiss artist
Aimee Rapin who has attained an envi
able rank in her profession without the
use of hands
She was a strong and healthy child but
was born without arms From her earli
est childhood she showed the most aston
ishing dexterity in the uso of her feet
and as time went on her ability to make
them serve instead of hands was greatly
increased Her foot coverings were on
that account carefully arranged so that
the toes should not be hampered or con
fined
One day while Aimees mother was
walking in the garden with her little
girl she was surprised to see the child
suddenly throw off her shoes pluck a
flower with her left foot and then pull
off the petals one after another with
the toes of her right foot
Afterthe mothers attention had thus
been drawn to the little girls suppleness
and dexterity she took pains to cultivate
her muscularpowers and succeeded far
beyond expectation
The child showed a decided talent for
drawing and after her school years
were ended it was decided to allow her
to pursue her studies at the School of
Art at Geneva There she soon distin
guished herself as an industrious and
highly gifted pupil
Miss Rapin now lives in Paris where
she is known not as a curiosity but an
artist of high rank She has chosen por
trait painting as her specialty and
guides her brush held between the great
and second toes of the right foot with
perfect ease and security Youths

Troubesome Journey to a Friend
Two Charlotte ladies were on the way
to visit a relative who lives six miles
from the city when they saw an old
white woman and two girls hobbling
along in the road One of the girls was
almost blind and the other WES on
crutches The ladies invited the crippled
girl to ride in their carriage to the turn
of the road and she accepted Along
the way the ladies learned quite an in
teresting history of the trio They were
from Illinois and had walked every
mile of the way from that state They
were bound for Linctfu country N C
to visit a relative there They would
always spend the night at the house of
negroes as they had heard that the
negroes in this section were better than
the whites They got money by begging
along the road They made from six to
ten miles a day After few weeks with
their Lincoln relative they expect to
tramp back to Illinois Norfolk Land

A Mountains Reflection
Attention is being called to the fact
that the peak of Teneriffe at dawn caste
upon the ocean a shadow that at first
appears to be flat upon the surface but
that gradually seems to rise up until it
is perpendicular and stands apparently
a reproduction in black of the real moun
tain which beside it is white and glow
ing in the sunlight The scientific ex
planation of the phenomenon is that the
shadow at first is really flat upon the
water but that as the heat of tho rising
sun causes a vapor to rise from the
ocean the shadow gradually becomc3
cast against the bank of fog instead of
upon the water and really is straight up
in the airSan Francisco Argonaut
