The gentlemen who were l e - hlnd thi* enterprise for some reaxon concluded they did not care to «i Into the heating bu lines* In Decatur. Ter hap* they will take another try at the thing ·omo other time. The city council now hux mdy m« p'e tltlon to consider. A hope Is expre*ned by Home that thi* be nut deUed so long aa to give theae people time tn withdraw from the bunlnesx, in make up their mind* to do something else. There waa a notion on the part of «onin that the petitioner* were about to gel aom'c- thlng of great value for nothing: It *ecm* the petitioner* did not look at It In that way. poulbly owing to the fact that they gave the question rather thoiotigh atudj. Not long ilnce we heard that the git* company people would not have gone Into the heating famines* were It not that competitor* coning Into the town pro- pOMd to do 10. The folk* at the gas office denied thla, aald them wa* nothing In that itory, that they had been piepaf- Ing for thla a long time. Now what nt will the future make on thla?

One of tin- first men he found whom he know was Chief Dan Sullivan of the police department. He went over and liad a iong talk wltti I Dan. Mr. Stewart went to work for the Wa- baah In 1K76 as a brakeman on freight and served In that capacity for eleven years under n lot of old conductors who are now running out of Decatur. When asked how he happened to quit the railroad business after serving »o long, he r«.-llcd: "Well, I got a little cut off at each end and thmiitlit r,i better cnrlt before I got cut In Iwo In the middle."

Not a bargain book, bought from a haberdasher, but a beautiful book, a book to caress -- peculiar, distinctive, individual; a book that hath first caught your eye and then pleased your fancy, written by an author with a tender whim, all right out of his heart.
