The business Is comparatively new, and la an illustration of the swiftness with which fresb adjustments fit American industry can rise. Though Y60 miles of horse car lines and 240 1 they are looked upon as curiosities that have been belated, and will dis appear as soon as the traffic is put in the best shape. The trolley is developing in traction lines as well as In city and suburban . ....... . , traffic, and this is one of its most lm portant phases. It makes its way quietly, but eventually combines its sections, and may be said to have a future as broad as any state or region, or the continent itself. A line recent ly admitted by St. Louis keeps er tending itself over Illinois, and is an object of interest In adjacent states. When it is seen that billions are now accommodated by the trolley. Its utili ty in the daily business of the masses '■ can be realized. Forces at work in the railroad situation are modifying and familiarizing It more than rate or any - other form of legislation.—Globe Dem •'.ocrat IRRIGATION PLANS. Mr. C. J. Blanchard, statistician of ' the United States reclamation service, ! has recently prepared an able article showing the vastness of the govern ment's irrigation projects. Many im- i v portant tasks are now under way and * many others will be started as soon as t the -reclamation fund will permit. The 25 projects now under con -1 struction will, when fully developed. add to the corn-producing area of the "United states more than 3,000,000 ( acres, or a cultivated area equal to the total acreage devoted to agricul turn] crops in Connecticut, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Florl » da. Three of these 25 projects are practically completed, six more will be in service this summer and work Is ■orogressjng on all of them. Thirteen additional plans held In abeyance have an even greater area than those now under construction, and the importance of this branch of j government work cannot be computed. Under the terms of the reclamation act. the money received from the sale of public lands in certain Western states and territories \ê placed in a ! revolving fund and used in the build ing or irrigation systems. In this | way all of the dry sections will be benefited and, ultimately, the money advanced for the Improvement of lands now worthless will be returned t to the national treasury. » THIS DATE IN HISTORY. -*■ June 19. ♦ 1795—James Boswell, biographer of Dr. Johnson, died.
