Three Dozen Mark—Some Swains

Thirty-six matches Was the harvest
Of Dan Cupid during the month just
passed. The diminutive love God
•worked comparatively steady through
out the month, beginning his labors on
the first week day, April 2. He con
tinued plying his vocation until Satur
day, April 28. The result of the many
"love fests" Sunday night failed to
dissolve into anything matrimonially
up to the present time, but it may be
that the forlorn ones are deferring
their debut into nuptialville until mar
riageable June rolls around.

Hayes Leaves Burlington.
Albert J. Hayes, who.has been su
perintendent of bridges arid building
on the Creston division of the Bur
lington, has resigned and has accepted
a position with the New York Central
system. He will be succeeded by W.
H. Gentle, who has been foreman of
bridges on the Creston division. The
Creston Advertiser-Gazette has the fol
lowing to say of this change:
"Albert J. Hayes, who has been su
perlntendent of bridges and buildings
of this division, with headquarters in
this city, has resigned his position
with the company in order to accept
a position of a great deal more re
sponsibility and higher compensation
with the New York Central system,
with headquarters at Hammond, Ind.
Mr. Hayes' resignation takes place at
once and he will leave this evening
for his new home, at which place he
will become engineer of maintenance
of way, having charge of what is
known as the Chicago & Indiana Har
bor line from Chicago south to
Streator, 111., and of the Three I's sys
tem from Clinton to St. Joseph, Mich.,
and the Outer Belt system, which
encircles Chicago. Mr. Hayes will he
succeeded at this point as superintend
ent of bridges and building b/ W. H.
Gentle, who has been promoted to the
place from foreman of bridges. In the
loss of Albert Hayes, the Burlington
loses another of the valuable men who
have followed W. C. Brown to the New
York Central lines, and have bettered
themselves by going east to receive
recognition for their abilities in a new
field of operation. Mr. Hayes com
menced work for the company sixteen
years ago in the capacity of water boy
at Fairfield, where his father had been
in the bridge department for a num
ber of years.
Is Made Superintendent.
"He steadily advanced to the position
of bridge carpenter, then to bridge
foreman and on the recognition of
Zach Taylor was made superintendent
of bridges at this point. In every posi
tion in which he found himself Mr.
Hayes has been found a valuable man,
and in all the line of employes for the
company there has been no man who
has commanded to a larger extent the
respect and affection of his fellow em
ployes and his men than Albert Hayes.
He is as true as-a needle to the £ole
to the interests which command' his
services, but at the same time is one
of those whole souled men who make
friends among all with whom they
come in contact. While sorry to lose
hi? as a companion and as an associ
ate, yet his fellow employes rejoice
with him in the deserved promotion
which has eome to him, and are con
fident that the position simply offers
him a stepping stone to higher places
in the railroad world, and those who
•have learned to admire Mr. Hayes in
this city will rejoice at any news of
continued advancement which may be
his lot.
W, H. Gentle Appointed.
"W. H. Gentle, who succeeds Mr.
Hayes as superintendent of bridges
and buildings, is an old employe of
the railroad company, having come to
the system in 1880, and being therefore
thirty-six years with the company.
Since 1890 Mr. Gentle has been fore
man of bridges and is recognized as
thoroughly familiar with the work and
competent to meet any emergency that
may arise. He is a married man and
with his family has lived in this city
since the early days of the city, and
the promotion comes to him as a rec
ognition of his fidelty to his trust. It
is pleasing to the Burlington employes
that the succession has fallen into the
hands of an old employe who has de
served the place, and in Mr. Gentle
the company secures the services of
unusual talents for the position to
which he has been appointed."
