Mollne is struggling with the problem of an nexation of s wide expanse ot territory running south from the present city limits, as far as Rock river. - - Opposition in the part which it is sought to add to the city, has based complaint on the ground that the only means by which sewers could be provided, would be to empty them into Rock river pleasant thought for the campers south of Rock Island but then this is forbid den by state law, and besides, the project is to big to be wielded handily, it is claimed. (The Dispatch maintains that there may be 7 some basis for the contention as to the sewer outlet, and further that it is possible that an fid Freight Rates and H. C. of L, ' Figures compiled by the Illinois Central railroad should reassure those who have feared that the freight rate increase recently granted by the Interstate commerce commission will result in another important raise in the cost of livifag. The distribution of the added freight revenue of the transportation companies will be so spread out, that there should be no ap preciable difference to the ultimate consumer. This is particularly interesting and gratifying, act! more than this it Is estimated that the added revenue will make possible improve ment "in service that eventually should mean a reduction in the cost of necessities. Statisticians show that the increase in freight rates on a pair of meh's shoes shipped from Chicago to a point within 200 miles, will be half a cent The increase on a pair of women's shoes will be 4-10 of a cent The added cost of shipping will be 8-10 of a cent will be, l-5 of a cent on a woman's summer dress, and 6-10 ot a cent on her winter coat Other items of wearing apparel are In pro portion. ; The increase in freight on a 10-pound pail of lard from Chicago will, it is figured, be 8-10 of a cent The increase on a dozen bananas from New Orleans will be Vz cent The raise in freight on a 24-pound sack ot flour from Minneapolis will be 2 cents. It will cost IVi cents more to get 10 pounds of sugar or 10 pounds ot coffee from New Orleans. Gasoline om Whiting will cost Vt cent more a gallon. Coal from Indiana mines will cost 36 .cents a ton more than formerly for freight It is perfectly plain from those figures that added freight on most articles used by the ultimate consumer will be only a small frac tion, of a cent, so small that it should be easily absorbed in many cases by the middlemen without affecting the citisen. Any dealer who begins to make use of the increased freight rates as an argument in de fense of materially higher prices, will be un der suspicion of taking advantage of an oppor tunity that apparently does not warrant such action. THE IKHOLT OFFICE. , ' (With apologies 'n' ewlhing).. v Last night I lay a-oreammg... 1 had a dream so lair; I sat within the office walls -And all the girls were there. , , Oh, vision rare and marvelous! Scarce true it seems to state! But every gosh-darned girl was then , At exacUy half-past eight - i " , A symphony of sound was heard, The swish and rattle of speed As a thousand tetters, like magic flew From each, little iron steed. And. oh! What conscientiousness! The angels ceased to weep And watched amazed with what great car Each girl at work did keep. And never a moment was wilfully spent In a wanton waste of time In powdering a treacherous shiny nose Or adjusting a curl sublime. And the mirrors galore that once before Were worn to the thread of decay Now blissfully slept and memories kept Of an earlier halcyon day. Oh, sweet relief to my weary ears! Not once these yells did I hear: "Oh, Marie, what's this?" or "Lee, what's that?" Or "C'niere, please, Rosie, dear." : , . n ' s - And then methought a sweeter Bight Did greet my wondering eye: jOn the wings of the morn, eo swiftly borne, The office boy sped by. His feet scarce seemed to touch the ground My heart missed a painful beat Asl stopped to see, in unholy gee, If wings bad grown on his feet! Then one more miracle took place: At exactly half-past five My work was done, my rest begun And I was still alive! And as I neared my home this song To my trembling lips did start; ( Flooding each corner of my soul, It welled from my thankful heart: have the tonsils removed, not sliced off. George, however, was a con servative chap; he believed in sav ing everything, except health. The quinsy was clearing up Georgi re fused to permit. lancing of the ab scess, but stoically suffered several days waiting for the thing to break he was apparently . recovering when there began a multiple arthri tis, (joint inflammation) with high fever rheumatic fever, acute artic ular rheumatism, multiple infec tious arthritis as we variously termed it (George was cursed with a maiden aunt who boasted much lore ot herbs and such.) Well, after a few weeks' torture by the doctor, aunt and wife, George consented, feebly, to try his luck at the hospital. First thing .happened after he arrived in the hospital was acute inflammation of the heart lining (endocarditis.) This was un usually severe, though painless, and George was for exploring the attic or picking pears Off the rose bushes for a week or more. Finally, the endocarditis began to subside and then George pulled his really big stunt he developed a beajitiful double pneumonia. Aunt thought he must have been exposed to the cold on the way to the hospital or per haps he had got his feet wet early in the spring. We doctors, in our clubby heartless way, were delight ed with the case, which presented so many curious and instructive aspects. We had, of course, a cul ture from the tonsils, another from the sputum, and others from the blood, and our good friend, the pneumococcus, proved the whole thing in , every culture. George's troubles were not over when the pneumonia began to clear up. He completed his performance by stag ing an acute pericarditis (which is inflammation of the sac in which the heart lies)' with a large effusion of serum or water and great embar rassment oUhe heart action, but with ultimate recovery. . Many months later a group of doctors examined George, fho was walking about and certified that he "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Sing, for the night is past; Hosanna, in the highest .... I wonder how long 'twill last!" M. M. Four or live years later George had a heart which acted perfectly, was again Tunning his engine, and I defy any doctor to find anything wrong with that hopelessly dam aged, heart r Nature is sometimes pretty good to us and sometimes pretty cruel. George happened to be one ot the lucky beneficiaries. But most cases of valvular leak age even though the leakage be a permanent one, do not and will not disable the victim. The heart is capable of compensating by increas ed muscle development tor the amount of blood which leaks back through the damaged valve at each beat.

M Aug 22. Long before Columbus cross ed the Atlantic, and probably be fore Christ was born, there was a city In thla barren canon. . It was a city well worthy tbl name, with many stone houses, with churches and torts, arts and industries, and farm lands to teed its people, of whom there were perhaps two thousand. The age of this city is a matter for speculation. It is known only that it Was a ruin when the Span iards came in the 16th century. There are manyther things about it that ouxzle archaeologists. But its size and how it looked are ap parent to every beholder. For half ot It was built of masonry, some of which still stands, and the otn er half was excavated in the face of the tufa cliffs. These rooms made by digging are almost unchanged. The soot of ancient fires is still black on their roofs, and on their floors lie the stone mortars and pestles with pwhich grain was ground, the stone lOOIS Wltn wmcn tne rooms were made, bitseof pottery, arrow heads and many other remnants of the life that was. For a long time writers romanc ed about the men who made these cliff dwellings. Because the doors were low, so that a man could en ter only on hands and knees, it was assumed that they were a pigmy race. But Bandelier, Loomis and other able investigators discredited this charming fairy tale. They showed that in all essentials, as shown by its remains, this civiliza tion of the cliff dwellers was Uke the civilization of the Pueblo In dians l today. They established the fact that the ancestors ot the Modern Pueblos lived "tn this cliff city in an age when they were a more thriving race than they have been in historical times, and when they needed such refuge in order to escape the Apaches and otner nomad Indians. A Striking; Site. Never was a city built in a more picturesque and inaccessible loca tion. Here the Rio Grande plows a way a thousand feet deep through a barren land of lava, iron nam and iron hot, frugally timbered with gnarled and .hardy pinon and juniper. Down to the river come other streams-little clear streattis from the pointed peaks to the north through gorges as deep and sheer as that of the Rio Grande itself. But these tributary canon's are not cut through lava. Their walls for the most part are ot tufa, a vol canic deposit as soft and workable as chalk and yet solid as marble. The Rito is one of these branch canons. It is perhaps 700 feet deep, and'its walls are so abrupt that its floor can be reached only by a few steep and difficult trails. You must picture it, then, as a vast crack in the face or the earth, with walls steep and sheer, sculp tured in all sorts of form by wind and rain, and tinted in every shade of brown, from the- palest buff to the richest of old meerschaum. These walls' are barren and sterile. and chimney holes were dux m shelves and cubbies for Ue'stn! ing of provisions. Then, utZ tribe griV strong and nnm-Jf1 they made rafter holes in the cIX i and built two and three toryiw nouses out in front ot it The built a great circular commuZi house on the ' floor ot ths cans '' AU ot its walls may still be baest and some ot them are yet htm feet high. And finally the shaatsi of the tribe climbed to a greatem in the cliff nearly 200 feet absn the stream and there they built ott' ot their circular places ot worski called a khiva, half way botwet the silver water and the bias W that looked over the rUnroet Never was a pagan temple anr fltly set. The Country Unchanged. ' It is the beauty of this plu that the country is just as it ku always been, and that so much of the ancient city remains.1 Yothtvt only to see its walls standing agabv iu pupuiaie ii wun orown men 114 women, like the Pueblos of todav save that they were probably mot nearly naxea; to near the uoadtr or tne arum rrom tne ceremonial cave, the deep chanting ot the mi as they came home from the fields, the voices of laughing women trudging in long'lmes from the' stream with tinajas full of water on their heads, and you hsvt t picture of the city that was. It was a civilization in the mak ing. The people were potter ot great ability, making a glazed pot tery, of which you may fiud abund ant bits and which the modern In dians cannot equal; they wore mantles ot cotton, probably gotten in trade; they drew pictures on the rocks and painted them on th roofs of caves; they had an organ ized government and a religion with permanent temples. Who can doubt that they would have evolv ed a true civilization had not an older and stronger one come alone and kicked their pretty plaything! all to pieces? The cliff dwellings are popnlont . again these summer days with the. many tourists who come from Santa Fe to see them, and with archaeologists, who explore ana expound and even insist on re- building some of the fallen walla to show how they used to be. One cannot help feeling this invasion as something of a desecration. A strangely incongruous creature here is the eternal wandering" young woman who snaps her fu tile little camera at everything,' and vho finds antiquity, like every thing else, "perfectly lovely." Ir ritating, too, is the strayed stock broker who climbs perspiring to the ceremonial cave and flings to the echoing walls his oft-repeated challenge: "Say, ain't this grand!" s The cliff dwellings are on a na tional monument and it is supposed to be against the law to carry any thing away, but all of the visitor! carry as much as they can in the; way of broken pottery and chipped obsidian. -One Indian Left John Boyd, the proprietor of El !
