March 1, a city passenger agent for
the trl-dtiea, with territory extending
Jrom Watertown to Bettendorf, Inclu
sive. This action on the part of the Bur

txnlqce In lt kind, something rarely if
ever heard of. taat of a woman filling
the position of city and traveling pas

WHY MOT A WOMAJI t
For the past few years it has been
the custom of the Burlington and omo
of the other lines to send representa
tives to the northern fields to look af- j
ter traffic, settlers, as they are termed, j
who usually Just before the holidays j
return in largs numbers to their for-1
xcer eastern tomes to visit relatives!
and old friends. For the purpose of j
watching the Burlington's interests Mr.
Hart was sent to Winnipeg, and it was
while there his appointment as general
agnt at Clinton was announced. Mis !
Oden, hearing the news and knowing !
the change would cause a vacancy by
th removal of Mr. Hart as tri-city .
passenger agent, caauallv remarked in i 1 rl-c,tv Towel SuPP'y company. Walsh 6Urrounned by a gold engage

POPHR WITH PfBLIC.
Mia Oden has admirably filled the
position of chief clerk and aseictant
ticket agent in the Burlington city office
j at Davenport for many years, and by
1 prompt, uniform and courteous treat
I meat to all, ever mindful of the com
: panys' interest at heart, has won for
! her a host of friends m the railway
i circle and the traveling public as well
as in the city. She is admittedly one of
. the bet qualified and most painstaking
ticket agents In the went, and also pos
ses bos a splendid knowledge of the
business In connection with the freight
department. She has traveled Quite
. extensively over the states from octan
to ocean and from Canada to the gulf,
having made railroad work In her line
a life -study. Being a student and close
r observer, she is in position and equlp
i ped to Impart to the traveler more
j valuable and reliable Information than
: could be gained otherwise than by per
eonal observation of the various sec
tions and routes.
Prior to the notice of her appoint
ment Miss Oden had planned to ao
' company the National Association of
Ticket Agents, of which she la a mem
ber, on a two weeks' trip, starting
about the middle of March.
The appointment of Miss Oden to the
new position is a meritorious one, and
tne uurungton management has shown
a magnanimous spirit in recognising
a devoted and deserving employe.
