Tha Missouri river yesterday left It tanks on the Iowa aide and began pour ing a swift current from a point Just vest of the Illinois Central railroad across tha territory lying between that locality and Thirty-seventh street Al anon It had backed up east of Thirty seventh street, filling a large territory ts tha northwest with a flood In aoi low places at least twelve feet deep. A number of houses wets Isolated and sur rounded, and In tha afternoon families began hurriedly to mora out. Thirty-seventh street, tba thoroughfare that lead to lha river pumping station, ha been graded up higher than any other cross street running north of Ave nue A, and It thus formed a dam. At noon tha water on tha east side of th street lacked but a few Inches la numerous pieces of flowing over. Back water' had filled the slough 00 the west Me, but th water level on th Wast side wa nearly three fart lower than oa th east aid of tha street. When It hroka over In tha afternoon It quickly fl:ied th big basin on tha other-aids, teasing up the road to tha pumping sta tion. If tha water that flowed In bad not been slopped by th street railway grade end th Broadway street grade this would hv been a real danger point, for It would hav given th river a short rut that might bar mad a new chan nel at th point between Broadway am th river pumping station.

Th river began pouring tnto Big lak early In th day, and by th middle of th afternoon It had pushed out over (be banks snd. covered the grounds In the vicinity ot the custodian's house In Lake rlew park,, and by mldnlrtit nearly all of the park lands were flooded.

IOWA FACTORY INSPECTOR PAYS VISIT TO BLUFFS William w! ehanaoo, Iowa state, In spector of factories, workshops and pub- tie buildings. I In tbe city looking attar hi duties. Th last autumn ths etat in spector spent considerable Urns her en forcing romplianc with the law requiring fire escapes, and encountered a pleating willingness on ths part of owner of luch buildings at required th devices to fully comply with the' law. Mr. Shannon's purpose now Is to enforce mother section of the state law designed for th better ment of th environment of employe. Thla relates to adequate toilet fadlltle for men and women. The Isw Is very explicit sad requires at least one toilet for every twenty em ploye. On section of the law reads: "la factories, mercantile establishments, workshops Snd mills adequate washing facilities shkll b provided for employes; and when Uhor performed Is of inch character as to require change of cloth ing, wholly or In part, by employes, there shall be provided a dressing room and lockers tor keeping clothing and afford ing washing fadlltlee aeparate for each sex. and a Person or person shall be allowed to us th facilities assigned to the opposite sex. A suitable supply of water for drinking shall also be provided." Another section ot the law makes It a serious offense to permit obscene writing or marking in such placet. Inspector Shannon said that the condl- tlena In. Council Bluff ware tar above the geieral average, but a full cemphaace with the law will require fifteen or twenty additional toilet The owners of such buildings have been notified Imme diately to supply the required facilities. '1 - have Inspected nearly all of the more Important establishments In Coua ctl Bluffs since I came bare and find that In -every -Instance the fir ear pea and other Miprovemenu for the safety ot employe painted out last tall have been provided.'' said. Mr. Shannon. "Not Only have the safety appliances been provided ait, Council-Bluffs willingly, but they are of even a better character than tha law requires. The owner and manage re have apparently tried m every way to protect their em ployes. In some of tha factories no fur ther Improvement apparently could be made. Tbe big candy factory of tba John 0. Woodward company at now the modal for tbe whole state. There la nothing that I can sea that could further add to the safety of the large number of em ployes or pro rids better mean for their comfort" Mr. Shannon left last evening for Dee Motnes, but will return la a week or two ta not th pragrcaa made la compliance with the ether feature of tbe law.

Points of Omaha. Ill theme, "Th Idol and th Ideal," gar him aa oppor tunity to present In a masterly manner hi conception of the truths revealed by lb theosophta philosophy. With faultiest loglo and eloquent word h showed that Ih idol was simply th material repre sentation ot the Ideal and that tbe only form ot Idolatry possible waa where the Ideal wa not that of the Individual, but on that had been glvsn him by another, on Uit hid been forced upon him by th authority of creed or dogma. It then became a part of, hi personality, not ot hi Individuality,, a posssssloa of th physical, not ths spiritual man, and It thus becaih an Idol whloh he worshiped. He made beautifully clear tha theosophte contention that "all rellgkms are th radii of a elrcl. th center of which Is God. snd even Idolatry I a groping after Ood." Judge Points' lecture are arousinf much Interest In those who are hearing them. On next Friday evening he will talk oa Theosophy and Evolution." ' MRS.

We are not going to depend upon our own ideas, but will leave the naming of our Player Piano to the people of this city and community. Too many people nowadays are buying pianos and player pianos with actually "any old name" on the fall-board or'front of the instrument, and simply because of that fact they do not know what they are getting. We are authorized by the factories to spend a large part of our energy and advertising money to burn it in the minds of the people so strong that the NAME of "OUR" Player Piano will become a by-word and a common household wcrd with everybody in this community.
