Gets a Promotion. Arthur Lingafelt,
who used to pound brass in the old
Western Union under Manager Harry
Matlock a quarter of a century ago, is
the latest recruit by promotion from
the messenger boy's bench. There has
been created by the Western Union
directors a i.ew southwestern territory
with headquarters at the natural point
of vantage, Oklahoma City, and there
hereafter will Superintendent Laoge
felt be found. He will be compelled
to accept greater responsibility than
he has borne as assistant superintend

Select Depot Site. The Davenport
citycouncil, by unanimous vote," at a
special meeting Friday evening, se
lected the two blocks o'f the river front
between Hanison and Scott streets as
the site of the proposed union railroad
station. While this seems to be the
location generally desired by the pub
lic, it is doubtful if it will be ac
ceptable to ihe interested railroad cor
porations. J. R. Lane, speaking for
the latter, explained blue prints that
had been submitted to the council in
dicating th block between Main and
Harrison streets as the position de
sired. It was explained that a satis
factory arrangement of trackage
would not be possible were the station
placed at .any other point on the
levee. The engineers of the railroads
have studied over the situation, and
"had reached this conclusion. The de
pot would be built, and in accordance
with the wishes of the people of Dav
enport, as to style and conveniences,
but the companies did demand that
' there be made some concession when
it comes to the matter of a site.

STUDY OF ALIENS.
Men Follow Immigrant Trail
to Its Beginning.
Dr. E. A." Steiner of Iowa college,
Grlnnell, Ja., author of the most inter
esting books In print which give the
Intimate story of the European immi
grant to America, lately landed in
New York from Europe, where he led
a party of recent college graduates
from Texas to Pennsylvania in a
study of the Immigrant in his home.
The men -were sent out by the Penn
sylvania state : committee of Young
Men's Christian associations to spend
a year abroad, on their return to take
positions as general ' secretaries of
Young Men's Christian associations in
the coal mining regions of that state.
Their trip became a missionary jour
ney from the start With their popu
lar teongs and hymns, unbounded good
nature and unobtrusive interest In ev
erybody, they made their influence
wholesomely felt. When on the streets
of Rotterdam a young man greeted
them .with these words:. "Boys, you
were a godsend to . me. I came on
board ship drunk after a terrible spree,
and I want to tell you that your life
in the steerage has made such an im
pression upon me that-when I return
to the States I wish to Join the Y. M.
C. A." - . -
Their plan was to discard railroads,
so they bought bicycles and wheeled
up the Rhine and pedaled up the Car
pathian mountains to get into close
touch at the source with the vast
stream of humanity which is pouring
into their native land. !
Under the lead of Dr. Steiner, who
was born in Austria and commands
nearly a dozen European languages
and dialects, the college "boys" stud
led the language, customs and coun
try, worked in the harvest fields tind
gathered fruit In the orchards with
the peasants, learned the villagers'
folk songs In the evening and in their
turn sang the college and church
hymns. They found a friend in ev
ery returned immigrant, and tne na
tives to whom America was the
"promised land" received them with
open arms. Dr. Steiner said that im
mediately when they, learned that he
was European boru they gave their
attention to the boys, the real Ameri
cans. They had for their schoolmas
ters In a mission school where they
stopped In the heart of Poland, Rus
sians. Lithuanians, Poles, Bohemians
and Jews, the very best type of men
whom they needed to know.- -
Commissioner Robert Watchorn con
siders this movement of the Y. M. C.
A. the most significant In its possibili
ties of influence among the Immi
grants from Europe of any the or
ganization has undertaken. These
men win know the people with whom
they are to live and serve as secre
taries of associations in. the mining
field of Pennsylvania. Other such
training expeditions directed by Dr.
Steiner will undoubtedly follow. The
students will spend the balance of the
year In Europe with the Bulgarians,
Lithuanians, Austrlans and in Italy,
from which countries come the great
er bulk of the Immigrants to America.
The international and world commit
tees of the Y. M. C. A. are stationing
men at the great ports of debarkation
of the old world, who-are distribut
ing literature about America and in
troductions of the Y. M. C. A.'s In
seventeen different languages a part
in a chain of influence beginning from
the distant interior towns and continu
ing from the ports of sailing, possibly
including later trained association secre
taries who will sail with the Immigrants
in the steerage. ' Immigrants are now
met at the ports of New York, Montreal,
Boston and Philadelphia by secreta
ries and Introduced to branch asso
ciations throughout the country as far
west as the mining camp of Taft
Mont; a construction camp in Roslyn,
Wash.; the copper- mines of Arizona
and. lumber camps of Louisiana. Dr.
Steiner- said: "The people marveled
that there was not a money making
scheme back of the enterprise, but
most of till that none of the college
fellows drank even the light beer of
the country or smoked and at their
purity and simplicity, of life as well
as tneir pnysicai vigor. They were
college athletes and took part In the
native games. They Introduced base
ball and gave some of the American
citizens to be the first lessons In the
national game." - .

tor. In Newark, N. J, for the Incorpo

PAPER CHRISTMAS GIFTS.
How to Make Attractive Desk Blotters
'and Wall Pocket.
Make your Christmas presentsof pa
per. One of the most attractive of
these paper articles is a desk blotter.
The usual size for a woman is eighteen
Inches deep by.fteen wide. The mate
rials necessary are one piece of card
board of the dimensions mentioned and
a second piece half an inch less in each '
dimension. The pad is covered with
flowered paper on the- lower Bide and !
has flowered paper corners. Plain I
crape paper la used to cover the top of
the pad. .
The largest of the cardboard rectan
gles is first covered with the flowered
Darjer. Th nnncr la fYililpil ovpr the'
edge to a considerable depth, at least
an inch and a half being desirable. Its
edges are then pasted neatly down,''
care being taken to make neat corners.
The smaller cardboard rectangle is cov
ered with the plain crape paper, which.
for instance, may be yellow if a yellow
flowered paper is being used. Four
right angled triangles which are three
inches on the two even sides are then
cut from stiff and very heavy wrap
ping paper and covered on one side
with plain and on the other with flow
ered paper. These are the four corners.
When they are covered a margin of
paper is left on the equal sides, and
this is re-enforced by a narrow strip of
muslin. This margin Is turned over and
pasted to the upper side of the card
board, which is to form the bottom of
the pad. The upper part of the pad Is
then laid on the lower part, and they
are pasted neatly together. The cor
ners, of course, go underneath the pad
corners. The pad corners are not past
ed down along their long Bide, as It Is
desirable to have them free bo that
new blotters may be slipped in and out ;
A wall pocket of paper may be made
which contains three pockets. For this
purpose the bordered crape paper
which comes in rolls may be used, or
you may select paper napkins whose
borders are In the form of garlands,
One piece cl cardboard eighteen
inches .wide by fifteen deep
and a second piece ' half inch
less in dimension. ,

which will not make the pocket too
long. The pocket inust, of course, be
just as long as the motif of the design.
The materials needed are three pieces
of cardboard about nine inches long.
The length, however, depends upon the
design of the paper which is to be
used. The cardboard ia just the
length of the design. The three card
boards are of graduated depths. They
are straight on three sides, and on the
top they are cut lu the shape of the
design of the paper. Sometimes the
top line Is straight and rounding, and
again it will have large scallops. A
design should not be chosen which has
too small a pattern. ' .
All of the cardboards are covered ou
the outside with the bordered paper
and inside with plain crape paper.
Perforations are made at equal dis
tances In the three pieces along the
bottom and sides. The perforations
along the bottom are close enough to
gether to permit of the sections of the
pocket being laced together. Only
three holes are necessary along tha
sides. Ribbon the color of the flowei

tions together and fastened at the ends

with two tiny bows. Along the sides
bands of ribbon are used to bold the
sections together. The lowest band is
