A Thriving City on the Wabash Bond

Oorrwjwniltncc of Tim tl * .
iMoOKxr. , la. , April o This nctivo
young city was born two or three
years ngo , wJion the Wabash railroad
commciieed to break ground here , by
the organization of a town lot com
pany. The company was largely com
posed of railrond officials , who desired
to secure the people who wished to
soltlo hero and start in business by
offering them inducements of an or
ganized village , and the settlement
was named after iho twelve year old
daughter of Col. Anderson , now of
Blanchard , who was then agent for the
"Town Lot company , " which was
called the "Western Improvement
is located just above thn first bottom
lands , along the slopes and on the
table land , by the side of Hunter's
branch , which is one of the tributar
ies to Walnut creek , and is in the
north corner of Fremont county , forty
miles from Council Bluffs ,
The three churches are on the high
grounds and add much to the general
appearance of the place. The Metho
dists hold the first religious service ,
and the first sermon was preached in
is under the management of Prof. 11.
H. Bridges , an experienced teacher ,
and the village having just been setoff
off into an independent district , is
about to build a good union school
.1. A. KOBE
was thu first merchant , and moved his
store nine miles to reach the place ,
He opened a general merchandise
store , and the building is now used by
Dr. Stone as n drug store and office.
3Ir. Rose is now the postmaster , and
with Charles Schick , the "implement
man , " is doing n largo business in
general merchandise. D. Bussard &
Co. began hero a year ago , and W. H.
Hays has just opened under his own
sign ; while William Tronholm and
Crostwait & Co. fill up the comple
ment in that line.
.1. w. ALDEN
was one of the early men on the
ground , and has the banking , lumber
and coal oflico all in one building , but
will immediately put up a good bank
UK. T. W. STONE
was the early physician here , and to
day has the practice , and keeps a fuil
line of drugs , and withal is one of the
best of men.
J. I. . OWTNS ,
the business manager here for C. S
Burr & Co. , heavy grain dealers , waa
probably the first regular BEB reader
in the place , and Dr. Stone the second
end , while new all read it and agree
with the paper that "don't wear a
HillTII , RICHARDSON AND CO.
have steam elevator , and the busi
ness hero is only a specimen of the
immense business they do along the
Wabash and its branches. They have
00,000 bushels of corn now on hand.
r. M. TOMLINSON ,
the harness man , uses a large amount
of leather made by his father in the
tannery at Clannda , which is the
most serviceable leather to bo found ,
and this shop is doing an extensive
business , and Air. H. E. Tomlinson ,
his brother , has just bought the barb
wire works and will give his personal
attention to the making of barb wire ,
which is no small business.
n. 11. ALLEN ,
the gentlemanly and obliging agent
for the Wabash at this place , is ono oi
the prime factors of business in the
town , and ono of the few men who
can always bo trusted , and who say
Jittlo and think much : and your cor
respondent would deeiro to express
thanks to several of the kind and gen
tlemanly conductors of this railroad
who have so many times rendered
your comniisaiotier real assistance ,
parti jalarly Wm. Daughorty and
Chun. McCarty , of the Wabash , and
Conductor Titus , of the C. , B. & Q ,
who are an honor to the companies

noticed by the statement of l < Yanli

All along this road wo notice large

much safer means of kcopiug them
from destruction , as empty cribs blow

Comfpomlcnwiol Tilt MR.
ATLANTIC , la. , April 4. "Belter
ate than never' is an old and familiar
adage , and will especially apply , to
rour correspondent here.
Our city is just now experiencing
luitu n boom. Now residences of
substantial and , in many instances ,
expensive ) character are being built by
the hundreds ; business blocks vill bo
erected this.yc.tr upon nearly nil of
.ho now vacant business lots ; the
court house will bo finished ; n distill *
cry and canning factory , both nov
under way , will bo completed and our
creamery put into operation. All
hcso improvements are building
up our city at n rapid rate ,
and are inducing hundreds of men
vith thousands of money to find
lomcs and investments hero. The
distillery company is made of resi
dents of this city and of Casey , this
state , the prime mover being Mr. F.
El. Whitney , who has done more for
Atlantic than any half dozen other
uon , and who never misses an oppor
tunity to boost it along on its upward
career. It is calculated this institu
tion will cost $80,000 , and that it
will bo in running order by the lit
of September , thi.i year. The side
track to its location , about one-half
milo cast of town , is already graded.
Propositions having been received
From a number of waterworks con >
tractors , it being made known that
Atlantic wished to construct a system
of waterworks , u citizens' committee
was appointed and recommended the
adoption of the Holly eystom
md the proposition made by
Mr. Cowoll , of Muacatine ,
: ho Holly company's western
agent , which was to build a system of
works to cost $02,000 , to bo paid by
the city upon tlio completion thereof.
Legal light was lot upon the question ,
and it was discovered that the city
liad no right to issue $02,000 of
bonds , that amount boinp in excess of
the 5 per cent fixed by the
law as the maximum. This has
the water works a back-set ,
but an effort is being made to over
come this legal obstacle by organizing
a private or stock company. What
the result will be your correspondent
cannot now determine.
The caldron has commenced to sim
mer a little , and occasionally , when
the lid lifts , ono can see the would-be
congressmen from the now Ninth
"bob up serenely. " At present Cass
county is without a congressman ,
Hepburn's county being taken out of
the now Ninth. This , however , does
not seem to cause much weeping
among those who are only too anxious
to robe themselves in congressional
garments. In fact , there is a good
deal of covert rejoicing , and Lafc
Young , one of Cass county's "favorite
sons" ( as ho thinks ) , wears a smile
which has not been visible upon hi <
placid countenance since the republi
can state convention sat down upon
him so heavily in his candidacy foi
the lieutenant governorship of the
commonwealth. Lafo is always
ready to take anything politically that
oilers itself , and would not object tc
representing the Ninth if it was
forced upon him. But his sceptre is
not wielded with the same power in
this county that it was in days ol
yore , and the enemies in his own
camp , and those in neighboring coun
ties in this district , who have no
cause to love him , and a gcnd
cause tor not doing so , will , undoubt
edly , see to it that ho remains "ex
clusively engaged in the newspaper
business. " I"am not a prophet ;
neither am I the sun of a prophet , but
if George Wright , of Council Bluffs ,
fails to "knock the persimmons , " I
lese my guess. Cass county , and
Lafo Young in particular , would have
been more than pleased hadPottawat-
lamio been left out of this district , as
by past experience all know the usunl
one-sided character of Council Bluffd
votes in nominating conventions ,
lleally , your correspondent thinks it
the most hoggish county in thu state.
But time unlocks the secrets of the
future , nnd I do suppose that
it will take time to ascertain the
strength of the following of each ol
the many candidates. Wo almost
forgot to mention that Cass county hai
still another candidate for congres
sional honors in the person of A. H.
Churchill , u barrister of this place.
Failing to bo nominated for legislate !
last your , ho tried to bo elected nmyoi
n few weeks ago , and being beaten foi
that oflico , he now seeks balm for hif
wounded feelings by his cfl'urt to draw
a cor.gressman'ri salary. He stands
as good a chance us Lafo , but
that U not the best in the world ,
Just now the prohibitionists of thu
county are laboring vigorously in behalf -
half of the constitutional amend
ment , They are well organized , in
fact better than either o'f the politi
cal parties evur have been here , and
are doini ; vijjoroun work. The ojipo.
sitiun nro doing nothing , imdsay thuj
will not do anything. With si brow
cry worth S25OOU and ten sulooiu
heio , it would f > eum as if HOIUU ortMiii
/ ition should bo perfected and action
tnkun. Jiccauso of thu indifl'drence
of thcsu men who are directly ant
financially interested in this matter
there is a feeling of growing indilfor
oiioa among men who have always op >
posed the amendment violently , and
if the present feeling continue.atuJ
this is an index to the feelings ii
other counties , I should not be sur
prised to see the amendment carried
by a good round majority.

A CELLULOID NOSE.
A Chinese Woman Who Can Always
Keep n HtlQ Upper Lip.
8 n Francisco Chranlcle.
A Kearney street dentist , who is
anything but old in years or his pro-
fcssionyosterday afternoon performed
tha difficult artistic job of supplying
n horribly disfigured human face with
nn artificial nose and upper lip. A
Chronicle ropottor who had heard
that the operation was to bo performed
called on the skillful practitioner nnd
requested permission to witness the
achievement of science. At first the
dentist declined to allow a
representative of the press
to _ witness the operation ,
having grave fears that such a pro
ceeding would scatter the sacred tradi
tions of the healing art which main *
tain and encourage mediocrity by
compelling every clover practitioner
to hide his light under a bushel and
await the slow process of being dis
covered in the darkness of his unad-
vertiscd ollico by an indiscnminatinn
public. Having boon assured that his
name would bo kept a profound secret ,
the dentist cemented to satisfy Ins
visitor's curiosity , and stated that the
patient was a Chinese woman , whoso
nose and upper lip had been destroyed
A lURFinUIlKD 1IOUUI.
"She will bo hero in a few mo-
tnents1 said the dentist , and almost
immediately the woman entered , ac
companied by a man in Chinese attire ,
whoso face offered incontrovertible
evidence of an admixture of Caucasian
blood. The woman hold a handker
chief to her face until she had taken
her ec.vt in the operating chair , when
she removed the cloth and displayed
a countenance inexpressibly horrible.
She had boon once good-lookim ; be
yond the degree of comeliness usually
displayed by the Ohincsn women ono
sees in California , for her chocks
wore round and her eyes rather shape
ly. The disease had , however , not
only deprived her of a nose , but
destroyed her upper teeth and loft the
bones bare and surrounded by fright
ful cicatrices that run through the
corners of the mouth and up to the
bridge of the nose towards the eye
brows. To make ruch a face present
able seemed an impassibility , but the
task was performed speedily and suc
cessfully. The HOBO and lip had al
ready been molded in celluloid from a
plaster cast of the face , and having
been carefully colored , presented a
most lifo-liko appearance. The den
tist , in molding the nose , had to depend -
pond entirely on his imagination , and
had modeled a thoroughly Asiatic
one. The artificial lineaments having
been prepared , there remained only
the interesting but difficult teat of at
ATTACHING TIIIJ 1'EATWRES.
In supplying artificial noses it is
customary to attach them by spec-
tides , but in the Chinese woman's
case such an arrangement would have
been impossible , owing to the great
size of the disfigurement caused by
the loss of the lip and teeth. The
difficulty was overcome by attaching a
gold spring to the upper jaw in the
manner in which single tooth are af-
lixcd. The spring ran up to whore
the bridge of the nose should have
been , and to this spring the artificial
nose and lip wore attached by an In
dia rubber loop. The combined pres
sure of the spring and the India-rub
ber drew the celluloid mask so close
to. the face that , being molded
to fit the cheeks , it would have
looked quito natural but for the
lack of that transparency which liv
ing tissue possesses. While the
woman's countenance was in repose ,
the effect of the work was remarkably
good , and the transformation which
it effected in her looks was so great
that she eagerly seized the mirroi
offered by the dentist and looking al
her reflection , she uttered an exclama
tion of surprise and dolizht. She
gave the practionor a handful of ton
dollar pieces , and trotted off with hei
half-caste escort , filled with a satisfac
tion at parting with wealth soldon
shown by Mongolians.
When the patient had gone the
dentist stated that the operation ,
though a difficult one , was not at till
difficult in dentist surgery. Thi :
science has advanced to such a degree
that the transformation of disfigured
countenances is an important part ol
it. In Paris , where the artistic fa
cilities are greater , it is possible t (
obtain artificial noses , and lips wrouglr
so deftly and delicately in wax that
except to a vary close inspection
they seem natural. Colluloic
IB the only material ' ii
which tha dontor-surgical artist o :
California can work , and , though celluloid
luloid features are not the most lovely
that tan bo made , they have the groa
merit of durability. The owner noei
noyor bo apprehensive about ongngini
in a heated political debate , and , under
dor the most depressing circumstances
can always keep a still" upper lip.
