that is a stranger to manj but should not be is the use of a full set of
teeth If you have neglected and allowed most of your teeth to waste
away you cant do better than to save and protect the remaining teeth by
securing a plate at once You can easily become accustomed to this ne
cessity when it is fitted with extreme care The minutest attention I give
to this work gives many of my patients a wish to have had a plate before
Come in and I will tell you about the kind most suitable for you the

Some Interesting Facts
It has been the idea of railr ad mii
that the system of accounts now followed
on tb Harrington as to the performance
of locomotives that is the amount of
oil used per mile cost of oils per 1000
miles otc involving in total a cotnploto
statement of the accomplishments of
definite class engines in both passenger
and freight serviof taking into account
mileage and tonnage Htc is the pet
scheme of recoot captains ol the riil
rond world
But there recently came to the notice
of the ritpr a paper containing a state
ment made in June 1862 setting foith
in detail the performance of loeomotiV h
on an Iowa road which clearly bettli s
tho fact thrtt railroad mnn of almost a
half century ago kii w r omothing about
these matters which we have been in
the habit of conndpriuu the exclusive
property of very recent railroad meih
The case in point is the report of Clii f
Clerk Wiehe fathei of General Foreman
A C Wiehe of our city to Tnouias W
Pact- M M It is a monthly statement
Hunwiug tho performance of loconiot -
on tho Dubuque Sioux City Railtmri
showing full expenditures in detail for
tle month ending June 30th 1862 tho
run being made to Cedar Falls h de
tail e of 100 miles
The group of engines number- 5 do
ing both freight and pa eiijjer
We will take one fiigine as a -ample
The Delaware Charles llajues en
ginoer made 927 miles on passenger and
1851 on freight during the moith at
a total cost of 3425 49 this total being
made up of the following items Wages
of engineer and fireman 885 repairs
S8 67 oil waste and tallow 3133 wood
S276 25 cleaning of ergine S24 24 This
report shows the following uverage cost
per mile Oil waste and tallow 1 05
cents wood 8 64 cents wages of engi
neer and fireman 342 cents repairs 4 5S
cents cleaning engine 87 cent total cost
per mile 1549 cents
The record also shows the average
mileage of the engines to the pint of oil
to be 1176 miles while the engines av
eraged 3764 miles to the cord of wood
An engine making 900 miles according
to this report used 13 cords of wood 10
gallons of oil 20 pounds of waste and
40 pounds of tallow this on freight A
passenger engine making 927 mile- used
28 cords of wood 9 gallons of oil 17
pounds of waste and 35 pounds of tal
In those days an engine went 12 miles
to a pint of oil Now an engine is ex
pected to go 60 miles on a pint of valve
and a pint of engine oil and this record
is exceeded in some instances as the
following report shows

Will Build a New Railroad
Stockville Feb Feb 4 Stockville
the county seat of Frontier after years
of isolation from the outside world so
far as railroad facilities are concerned
is at last to have a railroad if present
plans mature and with the schemn now
on foot there is no reason why the plan
should fail
The project now on foot is to build an
independent railroad from Stockville to
the nearest point en the Highline of
the Burlington following the valley of
Medicine Creek which is a distance of
about eight miles A preliminary sur
vey has been made and the estimated
cost of the read equipped with one en
gine the necessary sidings etc is about
100000 It is proposed to bond five
precincts tributary to Stockville for
30000 Contributions to the amount
of lper acre have been positively prom
ised by land owners tributary to the
county 6eat which brings the amount
up to about 860000 Stockville will be
assessed for the balance a great deal of
which haB already been subscribed by
local capitalists and ranchmen It is
now thought that the road will be com
pleted in time to handle this years crop
