A dispatch from St. Paul says that the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul 'olid Is building two engines at the Merrill Park shops which promise a •evolution in locomotive building. The new engines consume their own smoke ind have no smoke stack. They are fitted up with an electrical head light, which Is placed on a stand immediately n front of the bWlor, thus giving the engineer an unobstructed view of the ino ahead, The drive wheels are .argor than on the ordinary locomotives ivnd Intended for greater speed. The new engines are particularly designed to furnished power for lighting passen- •or trains with electricity and for furnishing steam heat. The engines, will bo used on the track between Milwa kco and Chic'.ijjp, urn! it.

The Capital soys: An amusing Incident occurred in Secretary Shaffer's office, Monday. A little girl had brought something there to enter for compotl /ion. Desiring to know where she wanted it entered, Secretary. Shaffer asked her what class she was in. Tho .ittlo one studied a moment and answered: u I am in ' A' class, room four." The reply created a roar of laughter, and the child could hardly bo made to understand that her school record was not what was wanted. Tho annual conference of the Methodist Episcopal churches of the northwestern Iowa district will bo hold at Fort Dodge from Sept. 13-21. About :>00 delegates will be In attendance. C. W.

The ito truck is ft novelty, and that nnd C. W. Wllllnms' Hbernlttyand advertising ntorpriso drew tho largo crowds last week. Such crowds will never bo drawn o Independence again. Budd Doblo us always insisted that tho kite track was no faster than tho oval. His opin- ;>n Is generally shared. Tho Indopon- ence soil is peculiarly good and elost- o. That makes speed, tho track shape avlng little or nothing to do with It. Some horses, however, go faster over ho kite, especially In tholr early trot- ing days, and for that reason tho Inde- Mindonee and Kunkakoe kites will al- Fays bo patronized^ by brooders. But or general and spectacular purposes hey will not "do.'' Maud S. Is now 17 years old.

A letter to a friend an-' lounces that Mr. Dollivor has boon locted to tho presidency of tho unl- orslty of Utah at tho handsome salary )f $4,000 a year, This position Is ono vhich any of tho prominent educator** f tho country might well fool flattered it being tendered. W. J. Buchanan, chief of tho department of agriculture of tho world's fair said last week: "I don't know whether you out here knpw It or not, but tho Iowa state fair is universally recog nlzed in the east as the greatest state fair in the country. There is no dig pute about that." . The Dubuque Telegraph quotes Chicago paper and says the kite shaped track will not "do." That is certain At Independence, Iowa, it had a splen did trial and chance, and the exper opinion is against it. Upon Its long stretches the horses come to and g from the spectators, who see but little of the coutentton which dn^vs crowd to the track.
