Santa Fc OiM-rator Writes Lines About the Brakenian. • Saturday's Cbaniite Tribune publish es the following poem from the pen of Wesley Irwin, operator at the Santa Fe depot: The Railroad Brakenian. On jJuly fourth we aiways Itear oLJ ";great deeds nobly done. Of soldiers brave and gallant, of vic- itories lost and won. A few words!here I wash to say of men as brave and true. As ever wore a uniform of royal army blue. I am speaking of tholbrHkcnian on the ordinary freight. 'Mw Ustftl on the payroll at a very moderate rale. And yet his life's ; in dauger every .minute on the run. ' In fact. It's evop nmrc so than the man's behind the gun. At every little station on top hcj has to climb: The speed of forty miles an hour they have to make tiie time. For number three is almost 4lHe at the station jui^t ahead. And if they do not make it, the riot act is read, rhcre's danger grave on every hand from the time they sfcn the call Until they cut their engine^ off and put her in. the stall. They count their lives as j ist a part of the frail road system great. So hats off now in honor to the brakeman on the freight.

COLD WEATHER HE^lPS BUSINESS Skating Rink had a Big Crowd Saturday Night. ! The cold wave whiiii arrived Saturday afternoon is nd^ only helping the merchants but It lis helping the .-jkaling rink. Saturday- night the largest crowd that attcjlnded the rink during the week oiitsljio from opening night was there, and had a moiit enjoyable time.

I Moran Couple Saw Farm' and Grave yard of Famous Indiana ^Murderess. (Moran Herald.) : Mr., and Mrs. E. D. Rapp and the children who have been o-j- <w extend «d visit to points In Ohio. Indiana and Michigan, returned home Simday night. One'of'the places they visited In Indiana, was LaPorte. where Mr. Rapp's brother Eler>' lives, and which has become famous during the last few months on account of the wholesale finding of bodies which had been buried on the farm ojf Mrs. Gunness neir LaPorle. They brought hdmc with them a little rock picked up off the 1 farm and also two small pieces of lioafds. They saw the hole which was dug and where the bodies were found Dnrlng the time when the excitement was at its highest |)eople came In such crowds the ptace had to be patrolled by oillcers and they could not handle the crowds some of the time. Many of the people around there do not believe Mrs. Gunnegs dead as has been officially decided. The farm is ver.v hilly. Mr. Rapp says, and does not look at all productive.:and there arc several spots where tlie earth looks as if it had been worked which he thinks are suspicious and might, re-i |Veal more dead bodies If an ln »'estl- gation was made. Mr. Rapp's brother works in a store at LaPorte and very often Mrs. Gunness would come in to lo trading and the clerks would all try to avoid waiting on her. At Benton Has-bor. another place they visited, a colony of people has estahlished i self., consisting of about 500 who call hemselves the "House of David." The people call them the "long hairs." a^ when anyone Joins the col/jny they let their hair grow. Qne man is recognized as the head and to him every new piember makes a will of any property they may have Tfto this one person. Mr. Rapp thinks I the whole thing will go to smash some day and the one person who is the head of the colony will then be found to be a grafter. THE JOPUy iOBE KEPOBT.

"The Republican meetings over the state are more largely attended this year than they were four years ago. The Democratic speakers are reported as drawing very small crowds.

Mr. Soott produced a letter written last Thursday to Mr. Scott, who is chairman of the committee on agriculture In Congress.

"Inquiry recently made In the Dc- ;partment of Agriculture, but not yet made public, with regard to the i»ro- dnctive jiower of the average acre in the last forty years, shows us that I for thirty years prior to 1897 the .vield of the acre had. been gradual!}' decreasing, with regard to the crops raised both In the North and thip South. Bnt since that time, namely, from 1S97 to 1906. a ^marked increase in productivity was found. "The encouragement given by Con gross to agriculture in the last twelve years, the work of agricultural colleges and experiment stations, and the aid given by the press of the coun- tr>-. have l)een helping the American farmer to make his time more valuable to himself and the acre yield more. "The first inquiry made by the rail road man in conteroplatlntr the carrying out of the )>mducts of the country i.s. "\\?Tat of the crops?" They have found that the crops of this year are good. They will bring more ipon- ey to the American farmer than ever before, by probably half a billion dollars. The carrier. learning this, orders new locofnotives. new cars, atid repairs, to all his rolling stock. The manufacturer, hearing this, s^ts his men tq work to prepare for the coming demand of his goods. Prosperity begins with the farmer and Is sustAih- ed by the fai-mer. It is a proud position for a man to occupy, that of find Ing the money to carry on the work of the Department of Agriculture. WARNER CAFE IS SOLD. Mr. Tarr of Gas City Is the New Owner.
