The Tumboli we cannot refrain Tion to the Gas last Issue of the Al or. James a. To Fliey the originator and the it cattleman a is we Anheir Ilia i Cess of making Gas from Limestone is possessed of a world wide reputation. He was the first Man to build a successful ice making machine in America. He helped to bring the refining of sugar to perfection and has contributed largely to the use of electricity As a motive Power and an illuminating agent. Not Content with a Fortune reaped in these enterprises Small in comparison with the wealth he directly conferred upon thousands of others through the use of his brains and Energy he came to Chicago to bring his experiments to perfection in an entirely new and original undertaking. Having the courage of ins convictions backed up by scientific testimony he attempted to produce Light and heat by simply liberating the chemical elements of tace be from Limestone. He built a Small experimental Plant produced the results sought Anil demonstrated the accomplishment of the facts embodied in what May be rightly termed an original discovery in scientific research. Just such a discovery As has made the name of Newton Franklin Tyndall Edison Bell a Ray and Many others famous in the annals of the scientific world. Just at this Inopportune time misfortunes began to come upon him his Plant being destroyed by fire. Undaunted by this calamity or. Tracey set about the erection of another p Nat upon a larger scale and one that would serve As the nucleus of a great plan that would ultimately revolutionize the method of producing heat and Light for the civilized world. He invested the whole of Llic remainder of his wealth in this undertaking feeling assured that he could push the Enterprise to a conclusion without asking one Dollar from any person outside his own resources. But again men of capital in the South Large sugar refiners and owners of plantations owing Lipini sums of Money were caught in the panic of the last eighteen months and failed to meet their obligations. Or. Tracey was thus crippled and ins great undertaking brought to a standstill. Being a Man of wonderful Energy far seeing Ami tireless in his efforts he is now interesting people of Public spirit and Means in his Enterprise. Last sunday quite a delegation visited the Plant at 406 and 40s 1 a Ickens Avenue and made a superficial investigation. They looked at the great outlay 61 actual wealth listened to the explanations made by or. Tracey and were forced to acknowledged that if he had the Means provided Linin that everything pointed to the most won Despui results possible. We Are so thoroughly convinced that this Man is destined to astonish the world with his discovery that we feel we Are doing humanity a Blessing by giving his Enterprise a free publication that it May attract men of Means quickly to his assistance. Had he the wealth and equipment of Edison the finances and skilled mechanics which Edison commands in his undertakings or. Tracey would no doubt astonish the Public within six months his name might be upon everybody s has and he would be hailed As a great Benefactor to humanity. We Are pleased to know that some of our More citizens Are rallying to his supp Oil. Full and free investigation is in i Tedmund we will say that if any of our read ers define to come ill on the ground floor of what promises to be one of the greatest beneficial enterprises yet produced in the nine tee will Century now and Here is the Opportunity. Go out Aud investigate for yourselves. It will Cost you but Little. You can Ose nothing by it and you May be the gainer in tile outcome.

Several years ago there was an officer stationed at this crossing but in the numerous changes of Tho police department this most important crossing has been quite lost track of by the police now that the traffic hos been doubled Ond rendered More dangerous than Ever by the introduction of a switching system in use by the Street car company. The East bound grip cars Stop right on Tho crossing of Robey Street while Tho West bound grips Are brought to a Stop 011 the West bound crossing of Robey Street Aud Taco Oast crossing of North Avenue. Thereby compelling people to make a circuit of Tho trains which bring them in most cases out to the tracks of the North Avenue line when the deadly trolley holds Forth in All its grim anticipation of a possible victim. The employees of the Street car company who have charge of the switch horses and pull the Avenue trains around Tho Corner where they Aro disconnected from a trolley and coupled to the Cable Are without exception a reckless set and take great Dolight in disconnecting their horses from the trying trailers a6 they plunge along and at times come in Contact with the grip in such a forcible manner that passengers have been thrown from their seats.
