A NebriMk* Editor «nd l>routh 8nf ferer Want* toBalie • Mortgage aC tbe Itate of • Dime Per Van, There Is a publisher at Cambridge Neb,, who has adopted the system o the young lady in Illinois for raising revenue. This publisher has a newspaper called the Kaleidoscope, and besides its adjustable machine made name, it is more or less in a comatose state because of an autumn style mortgage which cannot be made over for spring. The failure of tbe crops In Nebraska caused a minus feeling about the Income of the editor, and he has joined his neighbors in making a bid for assistance. Ho asks each publisher to send him ten cents, at the same time persuading the employes of the shop to do the same. The letter is to be endorsed and IB then to be passed to publisher No. 2 and BO on down the line until fifteen have signed and made the remittance, the letter being returned to the hungry editor with the fifteen ten cent pieces. The editor will in the meantime, try to hoi d<! own the mortgage and his publication and keep thejwolf from attaching his files and paste pot until the first lot of dimes reaches :hlm. Ha expects to realize at least $1,50 from each letter, and if be don't £ so much he will, he says, find himself short. There are great possibilities in the little plan, and if it had not been worked »y the alleged crippled girl in Caney, 111., there Is no reason why the Kaleidoscope man should not reap un told wealth from the "chains" he has sent out. Anything that will help a rural editor ID a western town, with a robust mortgage on his plant, is de» serving of the support of more fortunate publishers.

James GOBS, senior, is n*t only one of the oldest employes in the service of the Pennsylvania company but holds the distinction of having run the first locomotive on what is now the Richmond division of the Pan Handle. Mr. Goss came here in 1855 from Aurora and went to work on the new road then -under construction. The grading had been completed from here to Kokomo and a Hlnkley engine was sent here to do the track laying. The louomotive arrived on a canal ,boat and wooden rails were laid from the boat landing to the main track. At that time the yards and passenger station were located on the South Side and two bridges across Blddle's.Island connected that section with the main part of the town. Tbe iron rails were also shipped by the canal ronte and when everything was in readiness to 'lay track Mr. GOBS was given charge of the engine of tbe construction train He remained in this capacity until the road was completed as faj south as Anderson when on account of sickness he was compelled to return homo. He did not go back on the road but when he had recovered bis health was given a position as oar inspector and several years later as coach Inspector at the pas. passenger station which latter occupation he filled for more than thirty years. Last fall on account of advancing age and physical Infirmities he asked for less onerous duties and was assigned to a position of lamp trimmer, During his forty years of continuous service Mr. GOBS received no reprimand from any superior, never had his hours of labor reduced or pay out down or was laid ofl for neglecting his duties. He Is now nearly 76 years old but barring the results of several Injuries is as hale and hearty as many a younger man. Mr. GOBS has a fund of anecdotes and strange experiences connected with his early railroad career. Forty years ago the country about Anderson was simply a swamp and during the rainy season the newly laid track would on low ground be sometimes a foot or more under water. Construction work was necessarily flow and .the season being summer and the heat in the locomotive cab unbearable he sometimes would lie down under a shady tree and take a short nap When he awoke it was no uncommon thing to find himself surrounded by water snakes and other Blimey rep tiles wb.o had crawled out from a neighboring marsh. In fact this entire section of the country was BO VtH^a number of men who had come up from^e southern part of ths State to work on the new line had returned home after looking the situation over declaring that they would not live In such a country. The Peru & Indianapolis road, now the Michigan City division of the L. E. & W. bad just been completed from Indianapolis to Peru and used wooden rails covered with strips of iron. The grading amounted to next to nothing and when an engine got off the track, which by the way was a frequent occurrence, the engineer usually permitted his machine to run on the ties until she adjusted herself into her proper place. Modern railroad men will laugh at these puny railroads and their system, or rather lack of system of doing their work, but these roads were the predecessors of the great trunk lines that now carry annually millions of passengers and tons of freight over the prairies and through ;he forests of Indiana, and Mr. GOES »rldes himself on being one of the pioneers of the railway service. YTRECK AT KOUTS. -First section of Pan Handle freight ;raln No. 77 in charge of engineer ^has. Klosnne and conductor Thos. Hartsook met with a serious wreck at 4:30 Sunday morning at Kouts.
