Tried the Coupler, As the delegates from Emraetsburg were getting home on a special freight Saturday Senator Chubb and B, F. Grose decided to find out how the automatic coupler worked on the caboose, while the train was standing at Whittemore. They " fixed it plenty," as the slang goes, for .when the train pulled out the caboose stood where it was. No railway engineer saw such frantic signals to back up as that delegation made as they saw the train getting about a mile away. When they finally got back and coupled on, the whole delegation looked so innocent that the trainmen thought the thing had unbooked itself and never said a word. There was lots of good training in that Erametsburg convention. Fort Dodge Presbytery.
