For a couple of hours he slowly crept along, follow ing the sinuous windings of rusty rails, whose devious pHth took detours around obstacles such as a bunch of boulders which would have required blasting, or dodging a slough where a trestle, would hnve made, tho llr.e straight. At last be became apprehensive and when lie splod the first tinman tetng be had seen since leaving the main line, a lone woodchopper felling trees on a hillside, the old engineer stopped his epglr.e and shouted to tho ooJMnan: ; "Say, stranger, am I on the right road to Montelle?"

A sliver plate on the gun Is as bright seemingly, as If ithad beVm placed there but yesterday. The flirt had been placed and the hammer drawn back In read Incus for firing. The gun was found near the mouth of Toussaint creek, a few miles west of the state rifle range, and Is In a remarkably good state of preservation. considering the length of time it has probably lain in the water. ... it ir-L"-: :tr. lift ! if' gS i i 111 S QQl TOO BY: CAN'T I We're just too busy to give you an itemized list of the thousands cf "WONDERFUL CLEAN SWEEP BARGAINS" that are causing this General Ruih for our store.

Consider the honey bee. It tolls some and makes Its own liv ing;, but always runs a risk of being crowded out of Its owrj home; yet Har-rlninn with all his millions, James J.

' Old tobacco soaked section hands. who would be Immune from the stings of mosquitoes or wasps, hesitated when asked to go and turn the switch. The bees looked too nervous and there was too big an army of them. Officer Owrmire, who has the North western depot beat, was appealed to, but told the railroad men that the su preme court had held the case to be out of. his Jurisdiction-. Captain Beards- ley, superintendent of the Milwaukee andf St. Paul road told the bees to move on, and though a train man w ould drop dead it Captain- BearJWey said so, tha hnnwr bees on the outside of the swarm worked down underneath, but stuck to the switch. v By this time the congestion of truf fle at the single switch was becoming serious. Still no one opened the switch. It was suggested that .the fire department or fire reporter "be calW out, but the trainmen laughed at going to so murlj trouble to open a switch covered with little Insects. Still they were considering the honey bee. v - --. As Superlntendertt S, H.

"Go and get your popper," said the yardmaster, more to- get rid of th sugpestlon than anything rise. Then- the whole crew, with half a hundred spectators' who hnd gathered to see four grat rallrond companies tlod p by a few Insects, waited ten minutes until a man came through the yards carrying a wash boiler. He walked up to the switch. The boy heUf the bollor up under the bees. With his hand and aim. the man with the boiler raked tie swnrm Into the tinware. In a few minutes the Wcs which had ot been raUfd into the boiler, left th switch and joined the crowd In the clothes boiler - Hariiman, Rockefeller, Armour, Hill and Hughltt , had ' been saved from heavy losses by a man with a wash boiler.
