FROM LLOYD GOLDER." Thing* of Interest Written to His Parents and Frlendi. The following letter was received by Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Golder from their : son Lloyd, who" has charge of 'the draughting department of the terminal office of the Northern Pacific Rail Road at Bralnerd, Minn. The letter will interest the friends of himself and bride. My Dear Parents: I am at the office and have but a few minutes to spare, but will do the best I can. , Mr^-Herr-fSupt,—N,-£,)-has-been —around durlog-the past—week-and"iir=~ formed us in the drawing office that our services will be required in the new general office building at St. Paul, about the first of April, so we are beginning to get things straightened up, ready to go when finally called for. Lissie says that she never felt better in her life and is looking very well, indeed. , We spent last Saturday evening, until 11 o'clock, packing our dishes in a big box. Of course, if we had known that we were going to St. Paul in the first place wo would not have unpacked the dishes at all. • A couple of week? ago I went put on the road for a trial test with the Dynamometer ear. Four of the Northern Pacific officials accompanied the^ar.in- •eluding Mr. Herr and Mr. jBean.' The Dynamometer carls a caboose, __rigged«pJBith.gajigeB_and a diaphragm filled with oil By means of this we can tell at any instant just how .many pounds the engine is pulling on her draw bar. L __,-_ ._ We took one of our new Mastodon, twelve wheeled engines <eaid to be the largest engines in the world.) We pulled » train load of seventy freight ears, all loaded but three. The train was over one-half mile long and weighed 2,100 tons. This is the largest and heaviest train ever pulled over this road. Time is up. LLOYD. : ( Repetition Mlraenloa«Iy Averted In the A repetition ol the accident of yesterday afternoon was averted in an almost miraculous manner last evening as the 8:51 Overland Limited was polling out of the Sterling station. Harry Soramerville, of Kelly, Moss & Company, of* Chicago, attempted to board the moving train; in some man ner be missed the step with his foot and fell between the cars. Fortunately, he had a firm grasp of the ralfand he held on only as a man can who knows his life depends upon hia grip. .Tfcre night operator at the station saw his plight and, with great presence of mind, jumped aboard and stopped the train. The heavy line of cars had gained so much headway, however.that it was not brought to a standstill until it had passed the avenue B crossing. In the mean time, the endangered passenger had, in some manner, 'drawn himself out of his perilous position and gained the platform of one of the cars without sustaining any injury. For a time it seemed that it would be impossible for him to escape a horriblS death under the wheels of the heayy coaches, as be hung to the rails of the steps with his hands, with nothing in sight above the station platform, but his white face, distorted with the horror of the situation. A number of people saw the accident and it is safe to say that it was some time before any of them were able to draw a full breath without a gasp. GALLAGHER TO THE FRONT. AN ALLIGATOR HUNT CAPT.

We make the following extracts from the letter: ~ "Gun Cranks' Rooat,March 10.—Dear GUB:—You want some news—Well, her« goes. I have shot quail till I'm quailed out; turkey, a few—but this sport takes too much running to suit me—curlew, by the bushel; squirrels, by hunting coatsful; rabbits by the half wagon load, and hawks, owls and miscellaneous birds, by such plum, fat "flggers" that "kouldant knote much kount." Fish, too, are plenty; I'll wager that one half ton, actual weight, wouldn't equal It. Quail are not so plenty as when! was here before. 'Gators seem to be as thick and as ugly as ever. I took father and old Nancy (that's iny gun) over to 'Gator Heaven the other day, and before we came back I played the dickens with seven. One whopper was as big as a kerosene barrel. Now listen. At the first flash of the lamp—about 8:30 o'clock—we saw three whoppers. My hair stood .on end, but I threw the lights iri^front of the boat and caught a pair of blood red eyes about the size of a half dollar. I just stood and looked at 'em; he shut one and then thejotber—winking at me, you know. I. raised old Nance and shut both of theln at once for him. The entire top of his head was torn -off,—^V-e-moved-along-U-little_faXrtbev where I caught another pair of eyes, backed up by a smaller pair quite a good ways off. I kept the light on the nearest pair a,n.d soon closed 'em with a pill from Nancy. We paddled up to get him, and just as we were finishing him up, I caught eight of another. Old Nan and 1 soon shuffled him off the earth and we started for home. ' Just then an old 'gator commenced to bellow—smelled blood^-and the "'Gator Heaven"turnedinto a veritable hadea. I could see ten or thirteen eyes all at once. It was neck or nothing. "Dad", I, said, "paddle me up and I'll open the ball with a grand march, call-' educator's Funeral." "All right," said he, "make sure shots.? I caught an eye near some reedu and let him have it. He didn't like it at all, aDd'h^kjckej^tobeat the band. I tried to >coax him to be~quIeT~wItbf~«Q" ax, and finally, after he had nearly drowned me, he agreed to keep still. Soon I saw another eye.about fifty feet away. The fellow started to run, but Her Even log. lira. Silas Sones, wife cf the Rev. Silas Jones, pastor of the Christian church, of this city, died of consumption at her home, 707 Fourth avenue, Friday evening at 7 o'clock. The fa- neral will be held at the Christian church Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock, the Rev. W. B. Morris officiating. On Monday the remains will be taken to Sidell for burial. A service will be held there, also. -------------- ' ---------Mrs. Jones has been ill about a year, and during the past few weeks, her life was despaired of. Zua Spry was born in VermDlion county, 111., near Sidell, May 10, 1870. She lived there until January 29, 1890, when she was married to the Rev. Silas Jones, of this city. She received her education at the Illinois University at Champaign. She leaves to mourn her loss, her husband and and infant daughter, four months old; also her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. G. M. Spry, of Sidell, and two sisters and a brother, all of the same place. Mrs.Spry and her daugbter,Daiay,are now here; Mr. Spry was in Boston.but has been summoned to his home. The deceased has been a member of the Christian church since her childhood, having been a prominent church worker at her former home. The death of. Mrs. Jones casts a deep gloom over the churchi She was a beautiful Christian -woman, kind and true and never failed to respond to the call of duty. During her long illness she was sweetly patient and uncom^ plaing Her life, though short, has ever been filled with good works, and she is truly worthy of the words from her Lord and Savior, "Well done, good and faithful servant, enter thou into the joys or tny Lord." ~~ Mrs. Jones leaves vacant u place which can never be filled. Her sorrowing family has the deep sympathy of the entire community, UNDER THE WHEELS. FRANK R. PECK, MEETS HIS OF CLINTON, DEATH. Found Dnder a Freight in Front ot the North Wwtern Station—Lower Part Of Body Horribly M«n»led-Vcrdlct of "Accidental Death" Rendered. BICYCLE BAGGAGE BILL. Rock _ after their interests at Springfield, 'have returned home. They wish it understood that they represented the Illinois Association of Retail Grocers and that; they wefe in Springfield to secure the passage of a bill to repeal the present gar, • nishee law and to substitute a new ona fv which will be more practicable. They ' had nothing to do with the Business Men's Association, which was there ' * against the department stores and ' . were not in, favor qf the movements of that organization. The garnishment bill reached its third reading and was, by that time, in IT such an ambiguous state that Hon, G. ^ C. Johnson, of this city, moved that it be remanded to the second reading for amendment. There aretwo'plana suggested hi the garnishment of wages: one Is to give a man an 'exemption* of ~^®25-wlth_4wenty'-flve per cent of the amount over that sum subject to gar' niahment; and the other ia give an exemption of 810 a week. The-present exemption 1s $50, which, in view of the I fact that very few laboring men ever have BO large an amount at one time, makes the law practically useless. PAKTV AT THE WATSON HOME.

The Bicycle Baggage Bill received its first attention in the House at Springfield Friday, scoring a point in favor of the wheelmen, and, by a majority vote, was advanced to first reading instead of securing an indefinite postponement. , Inasmuch as a petition containing about 150 names of business men and wheelmen in favor of the bill was sent from Sterling, the signers feel elated over the prospect of its passage. ^The Chicago delegation is strongly iu favor of the bill, most of the opposition coming from the country members. On the preliminary ballot, of our representation, Mr. Murray' s vote 'tras—been unfavorable. -Mr. DirreBn*s~ favorable, while C. - C. Johnsoij, to whom the petition wa^ sent, has failed to e'xpresa an opinion. Frank E. Peck, a real estate and insurance agent of Clinton, la., fell nnder a moving train and was inntantly killed Friday evening. The body, was found near the North Western station'here about 11 o'clock. It IB supposed,.how-, ever, that tbe unfortunate man waa killed by the Overland Limited passenger train, No. 1, due here at 8:Sl. No person eaw the accident and it is probable that the details will always remain a mystery. At 10:62, a special freight train from the East, in charge of Conductor M. Carey, arrived in Sterling. A brakeman went to the rear of the train to fix a coupling which was not working properly. As the brakeman stepped between the cars he discovered the mangled body of a man. Assistance was summoued and the body was removed to the baggage room. The body was terribly mangled, the lower part of his body being literally out to pieces. Dr. Frank Anthony and Agent W. A. Marsh were at once summoned, and efforts were made to discover the man's identity. A search of the pockets brought out letters and business cards bearing the address of Frank R. Peck, Clinton, Ia. The dead.man'a effects were turned over to Ofllcer Gould. Messages were sent to Mr. Peck's family iu Clinton and Coroner Baird was summoned. The facts given above make up tbe story of the accident as far as is defi- nitely-known;—VariouH-tbeories-have- been advanced and from the position of the body and foot-prints, along the rails and other evidences it is generally thought by railroad men that the. accident happened at 8:51. Theie are a nuntber of foot prints on the south side of the south track at a point east of the station. The foot prints were evidentally made before the ground had frozen nnd it is this fact which causes rail road men to believe that this man was killed by train •No. 1. ' _' At a point some'distance east of the front of the station, 100 feet or more, can be seen two foot prints—side by side—made evidently wheii the man stepped from the train. From this point for H distance of fifty feet can be seen irregulaj foot prints, made, it is supposed, by Mr. Peck, as he held to the step and ran along side iu his efforts to get'back on the train. 'About rifty feet east of the signal iu front of the station, the earth la ploughed up as by a foot slipping through the mud. Just below this wan a pnnl nf-blond.-. testimony was /rabRtantially a* that given abo?«». The jnry rendered a verdict of accidental death and expressed ths opinion that Mr. Peck was endeavoring to board the train at the titan of the" accident. From the testimony before the jury and other facts, such as the finding of the ticket in the dead roan's pocke% It is thought that Mr. Peck boarded the train at Wheatpn, pot hie hat and coat in, the day coach, and then .uibred forward to tbe sleeping car. Why be got off on the south tide of tbe car and just how he net his death is, and prop- ably always will be a mystery. Mr. Peck left bi* coat and hat In charge of a travelling man toon after he boarded the train at Wheaton. Frank R. Feck was quite a promi- nentand much respected citizen of Clintpn where he has resided for many years. For two years past he has conducted a real estate and insurance agency, hla office being in his home. Fourth street and Eighth avenue Prior to that time, for two years he was Street Commissioner of the city. He was a m&n in comfortable circumstances, though not wealthy. During bis term as Street Commissioner his work was excellently well done and he became deservedly popular.. He was a man about thirty-five years <.f age. and a member of several fraternal organizations, among them beidg the I. O. O. F., M. W. A. and Masonic Lodges. He leaves a wife and three children. Mr. Peck had quite an extended acquaintance in Sterling and was quite- popular here. He carried 823,000 life- insurance. ' The remains were taken to Clinton for burial at 12:15 p. m. today.

Thirty guests were • present, a number of them being from this city. The party proved very enjoyable; tbe trips to and from the scene of merriment were not without incident also.

His mother is a hard working woman who cannot give as much attention to the boy aa he seems to require, and has taken this mejh.od to save him from himself. The case was prosecuted by Attorney Walter HaskelJ, while J. E. McPherran defended the boy, The jury found tbe boy dependent and directed $hat he be seat to the above named school.

The Jury which held an inquest over the remains of Wallace Mann, who was killed Wednesday afternoon at the North Western station, came to an agreement late in the afternoon. Foreman, J. W. Alexander, reported tie following verdict: "We the undersigned jurors agree: First, that he came to his death by being struck by the cars and engine on the C. & N. W. Railway March 24 1897, the train coming from the west at about the time of the passenger going west on the same railroad tracks. The train coming from the west was the one that struck and killed said W. P. Mann. We further find ^that the killing was accidental." J. W. ALEXANDER, L. L. EMMONS, JR., L. OLTMANNS, S. T.

The man was evidently a passenger on one of th» trains. He had in one pocket a ticket—not punched—from Geneva to Clinton, and he wore a skull traveling cap and no overcoat. From these evidences trainmen are of thu opinion that the man was a passenger on train No. 1."

They come from families of well known man hunters and can carry a trail for. many miles. The keepers- have a particular way of starting the dogs on the right trails and it is said they are harmless unless the evildoer shoul be overtaken In an open field and undertake ^o fight the dogs. Even in that case itla"s'eldnm that the dogs will do .more than bark. They can also, it is said, keep the trail after the trail is thirty hours old, These dogs are of.

A Well Known MorrUoti Woman 1'aunxl Away Friday Eveuluff. The death of Mrs. "A. C; Goesman took, place Friday evening at her home In Morrison shortly before C o'clock after a long and painful illness. Mrs! Gossman. was well known here In German circles. Several years ago, Mr. and Mrs. Gossman lived here for a short time and conducted a restaurant on East Third street, between First and Second avenues. Mrs. Grossman waa fifty-five years of age and leaves a husband and eon to* mourn her loss. The fuaer»l will be held on Sunday afternoon at U:30 o'clock from $iie If we could, trace Dyspepsia to its source, it would lead back to. our kitchens. In fact, the secret of good health is good cooking. If well cooked, foods are partially digested; if poorly cooked, they are less digestible than in their raw state. If you are a victim of faulty cooking; that is, if you suffer from Dyspepsia, the rational cure must be looked for in an artificially digested food, and a food which will at the same time aid the digestion of other foods. Such R preparation virtually rests the tired digestive organs, thereby restoring them to their natural strength. Tbe Digestive Cordial, as prepared by the Shakers of Mount Lebanon, is just such, a preparation, and a single 10 cent bottle will convince you of its value.

It is supposed that Mr. Peck made an unsuccessful attempt to jump on the steps and then, afraid to let go, was dragged along'by the train. It is very probable that when his foot slipped, he was caught by the wheels and dragged under the train. Death came almost instantly. The special freight train, referred to above, was the next train which came in over that track. The body was found under the second car ahead of the way car, so that nearly the entire train must have passed over it. The theory of suicide has been advanced but there is no evidence in its support. Mr. Peck was fairly well to do, H man in easy circumstances, of a sunny disposition; ,he had a pleasant home and family nnd there can be no possible cause for taking his own life. In response to the summons to Mr. Peck's family, W. A. Wilbur and George McLain, came up from Clinton during the night. The gentlemen have rooms In Mr. Peck's house. Mr. Peck, they say, went to Chicago on a business trip a few days ago. On his return, it was his intention, to visit his brother, Dr. Peck, of Wheaton. He had undoubtedly done BO and had taken train No. I, for home. Coroner J. N. Baird arrived in Sterling early this morning and subpoenaed J. W. Alexander,' C. E. Hoyt, Henry Werle, II. M.
