Miss Marie Smith , the missing hair dresser and masseuse , has been heard from . Yesterday The Courier received a letter from Peoria signed A Friend of Miss Smith which declared that the young woman had been sick with scarlet fever in a Peoria hospital since her departure from this city . The writer declared that Marie had been sick at her home and was then taken to the hospital .

The Friend of Miss Smith was evidently able to speak with authority , for she said that the hair dresser intended to return to Urbana shortly with a nice line of new goods . Courtesy prevents even the insinuation that the friend knows much about Miss Smih s affairs . Some persons who were shown the letter brutally declared that it probably c...

The most vivid impressions which the English rialroad officials who are touring this country will take back with them is regarding the enormous sums which American railroads are spending in betterments and equipment . Robert Evans , who by consent acted as spokesman of the party , said : We are absolutely amazed , I might say almost stunned , at the inconceivable amount of money that is being put into improvement of American railroads . Of course , we do not know your country as well as do the officials of the railroads which are devoting these princely fortunes to improvements , and they may be right when they tell us that it is being done to provide for the future , which , they declare , is bound to surpass all records in point of traffic offered for transportation . I am afraid , however , that the time will com...

It was on a beautifully clear day , the twentieth of February , that the Albatross approached within a little more than 100 miles of Guam , reports Leslie s Monthly . The vessel lay to , and preparations were made for one of the frequent soundings . At length , the silence was broken by a brief order and the tinkling of a bell . Slowly tthe machinery of the engine began to work and slowly the tough wire rope began to sink beneath the water . Foot by foot , fathom by fathom , it slid from the ship . One thousand , two thousand , three and then four thousand fathoms disappeared . The record was passed . Five miles of rope ! It was an anxious moment , for the strain caused by the immense length and weight of the wire rope on the machinery was tremendous . But everything held firm ; a...

THE RED MANS AUTOMOBILE . This is the season of the year when the Indian chiefs come in from the reservations to see the Great Father , says the New . York World s Washington correspondent . There are a score of them in the city now . A group of half a dozen standing on the curb watching an automobile recalled to some Tcxans who were passing- the story Col . Bill Sterrett used to tell about the man who went into the Indian Territory to sell baby carriages . Everybody said he was crazy . It was admitted that there was a fine crop of babies in the territory , but no one could see what the squaws , who were used to packing their offsprings on their backs , could do with baby carriages . Still , orders began to come back , first for dozens , and then for car loads , and finally Sterrett went up to investigate . He went into one of the Indian villages . And Ill be dashed , said Col .

OLD PEOPLE [Newspaper Article] — Urbana Daily Courier — 24 March 1903
OLD PEOPLE other way , as history has shown that it is bound to do . I t seems to me that more conservatism now would prevent many bankruptcies in the future . Of course , I may be wrong , for every railroad man with whom I have talked seems to have unbounded faith in the future , and thinks there will be no decrease in the amount of traffic ottered . I want to say , however , that the amount of money American railway managements are spending is astounding the railway managements of every other country in the world . - Asked what he thought of recent criticisms regarding English methods of railway accounting . Mr . Kvaas said : In the main , I think the criticism has been unjust , and I do not look for any radical change in our accounting methods . I believe our system is as good , and in many respects better , than yours . Regarding betterment accounts it makes little difference in the end whether you charge them against capit . il account or against earnings . In either event they...
