Great North and South Road, So Full of Promise to Newport, May be Completed Next June. Only thirty-nine miles of steel to lay and the gap between i the two approaching ends of the1 great White River route will be i closed, says the Cotter Courier, j completing the construction of a splendid trunk line, #ne of the most important north and south railways in the Mississippi val ley, and yet many weary months will pass before the last spike is driven home and before the first through train will pass over the line. Only 39 miles, but in them are crowded a succession of engineer ing problems to be met and solved which are stupendous. In their order these difficulties are: The Oregon flat cut, the Bear creek bridge, the Omaha tunnel, the Barren Fork trestle and bridge, the White River bridge at Bran son and the five miles of bridges and trestles between that place and Reed’s Spring, the present southern terminal of the north end of the line. When the gap of 39 miles is filled the White River route will be complete, but it need not j cause surprise if the first through train goes up before June 1st, 1906. REYNOLDS AGREES UF . DAMAGES. Widow Secures Compromise With Contractor for Loss of Her Husband. Little Rock, Dec. 9.—The $10, 000 damage suit brought by 1 Alice Collins against J. H. Rey nolds, a railroad contractor, for the death of her husband, Louis M. Collins, was settled yesterday and judgment entered by con sent in the sum of $2,250. Collins was killed while work ing for the defendant, who was then engaged as principal con tractor -in the construction of the bridge piers for the Iron Moun tain across White river near Cot ter. It was alleged in the com plaint that Collins was struck on the head by a box weighing about 150 pounds, which had been sus pended over his head by a rope. It was alleged that the rope by which the box was suspended had become rotten and unsafe for use. The defendant yesterday filed an answer, alleging that Collins’ death was due to his carelessness in engaging in conversation while on the bridge pier and not watch ing the box which was suspend ed over his head. Soon after the answer was filed, however, the settlement was reached and judg ment entered for the plaintiff. A COMEPLETE, TRIUMPH. A complete triumph in the art of play-building can be clearly illustrated by seeing “The Mid night Express,” soon to appear here. The four acts of gorgeous stage settings are marvelously beautiful, producing an enchant ing effect. A train of cars three hundred feet long,a light house,a storm at sea, are among the scenic splendors of “The Mid night Express,” which is said to be the purest and most intense of melo-dramas of this genera tion. A company of sixteen cleverly interpret the interesting plot.' There are also six special- j ty artists and two talented chil-\ dren performers in ‘ ‘The Mid night Express” which comes to' Newport theatre for one night, Dec. 13.

Long after he has forgotten the color of her hair, the dimple in her chin and the soft, sweet sound of her voice, the look in her eye remains with him, says an authority on the sub ject. He may not be able to single her glove out of a pile of keepsakes; he may have cast her photograph upside down into the waste basket with a lot of others; the slippers she made him may have been worn out by his valet, but still some particular turn of her glance, some little trick of dropping her lashes or lifting her brown eyes will be as clear to him as the daylight. Ten years after love has been laid away in his little satin-lined casket that glance will rise like Banquo’s ghost at the feast and startle him just at the moment when the man is look ing most intently into the eyes of an other woman. It is not the color of a woman’s eyes which a man first observes or last re members. Nine times out of ten a man will turn from the glance of a pair of soft brown, cowlike eyes to gaze into the green orbs of the red headed girl on the other side of the table, and many a doll-like, blue-eyed beauty weeps because some pug-nosed, tawny-eyed woman has lured away her sweetheart. Ask any man the color of his sister’s •yes and he will look at you blankly. "Jove,” he will remark, "I—I believe I’ve forgotten. But they’re all right. There’s something about them that’s oatchy.” And that is positively all that can be gotten out of him. l,he fact that Becky aharpe’s eyes were green or that Cleopatra’s eyes were yellow never interfered with the machinations of those fascinating la dies, nor dulled their reputations as coquettes. Color, size and shape may make an eye beautiful, but they never* .sen iri vo it that aramatHin <r whif*h SA many beautiful eyes lack and so many homely ones possess, the power to make a man break a bank or sell hie overcoat in order to give his wife what ■he wants. When the world was sentimental men called it “soul.” Then they grew practical and apathetic and they called it “character.” But no man will ever know what It is any more than he will ever know why he married the particu lar woman he picked out or why tha cook has left It Is a question as subtle and elusive as either of these. WONDERS IN MECHANICS. Some That Were Worked by Young Americans with ■ Genius for Invention. A young man who at 21 had been be fore the mast, had worked in the chemical department of a mill and had lectured upon nitrous-oxide gas throughout the country patented tha rotating chamber for a pistol. It was not considered particularly valuable uu til after his first company that made it had failed and fights in Texas and with the Seminoles in Florida proved its worth. The Mexican war made a de mand for it. The same mechanic, says the Would's Work, who did so much for early ax-making developed details in revolver-making. The American plan of not hesitating at the cost of new appliances was never better shown than in this big armory. The owner was probably the first man to suggest the mining of harbers with torpedoes for defense, and he was the first to lay a submarine electric cable. One day a young man from Vermont came to hia works. “What can you do?” asked the su perintendent. “I’m a machinist, a toolmaker and a liesinker and I can play a horn in a band,” was the reply. He went to work the next day. A few years later he multiplied by 40 the value of certain labor in another fac tory, and by another invention saved the company JoO.OOO on contracts al ready made. Later, with a sewing ma chine company, he forged shuttles from one piece of bar steel and cut previous costs in half. Since that time he has made forgings by the use of drops weighing as much as a ton dropping with dies sometimes six feet upon iron, ateel and copper. An example of his in ventive genius is the instance of hia forging offhand from a single piece of copper commutator bars for electric dynamos after the electrician in charge had said that such a scheme was im possible. Priest and Donkey. When Archbishop Farley was private chamberlain to the late Pope Leo, some 20 years ago, he was called upon to meet all sorts of persons. Many of them measured wits with him, and few scored victory. On one occasion a young Frenchman tried his best to anger the prelate, then Mons. Farley, by scoffing at religion and clergymen. Failing in this, he resorted to sheer Impudence, saying: “I am informed that in Mada gascar, whenever they hang a priest, ■hey hang a donkey along with him.” The young man laughed, and Mons. Farley, looking at him mildly, said: Well, let us both be thankful, my young friend, that we are not in Madagas car” Much More to the Point. “Ef yer real interested,” said Dea eon Skinner, “I’ll tell ye what I want fur thet horse.” “Oh, I wouldn’t be Interested in know ing thet,” replied Farmer Shoude. “No?" “No; but I wouldn’t mind knowin’ what ye’d taka.”—Philadelphia Praia I KEYSTONE OF Kimball Piano STRUCTURE. *• j; ? j The sale of the Kimball Piano is the keystone of its unsurpassable quality, the founds" tion of its great musical worth, the cause of its popularity with artists and musicians. Perfect piano scale-making is a mathematical problem figured out by sound waves to the merest fraction of a second. Not all piano makers strive for perfection along this line (many making no pre tense). but out of the few who have nearly reached the goal. Kimball is Prominent. ( _ i ' ’ One of the most perfect musical scales ia displayed in the cultivated human voice. An imperfect scale piano is like a person who cannot sing correctly—it’s worse because all do not claim to nag. It costs money to cultivate the voiee, it costs more money to perfect a piano scale. Hm cost to produce a perfect Kimball scale has been no less than that of other of the recognised artistic pianos of the world, yet because of the advantages of the largest output has say fsslivy. wo sse able to soil tbs Kimball a* s very moderate price. —Iffy wldiwd The Kimball ■ystem and easy payment plan brings it within reach of atL Call or write for Catalogues, prices and terms.
