Putnam Again Chosen President DEFFENBAUGH NAMED Decatur Man One of Nation. k £ ai Delegates B?' ---' ' Th« last hourt of ths Illinol* Rural letter Carriers' convention wera devoted to the ejecting of otfic»r§, ohoo«- Ing of m««tins place for 1915 and elect- Ins fourteen delegates to the national convention in Washington. D. C., beginning th« i»cond Tuesday in Aug- uit. Amonff the delegates elected was John C. DeffenbauBh of Decatur, he setting the only office that any De- Cfttur men were after. WAS TEDIOUS TASK. The choosing of delegates proved the Ions task lor th« meeting and one that will undoubtedly brln* about rome chang* in the method of electing them. The state society Jias increased during the year from 800 to 1,300 members, which entitles it to five more delegates at the national meeting. Then, too. becausa of the state body growing, there were more delegates here at this convention to vote oi« delegates to the national convention. 1.70J VOTES. VThen th« nominations were In or- j der for the national delegates, twenty- rtx were nominated. There were 131 frtate seleiates voting and each was (ntltled to vote for thirteen candidates. This made In all a total of 3.703 votes to count on twenty-eix candidates. Had not almost half of the delef^ttes left between noon and time ef electing these candidates, the vote would have been still much harder to count. FINISHED LATE. AM it was, tha regular convasalng committee counted and counted, then enlisted the aid of other members and finally had about *'v« committees counting the votes. It was not finished until 6 o'clock or later and by that time all delegates had left and many ot them were on their way home, It ·was the fiercest job encountered in a long time "by the counters and with the association crowing as it is, some effort will be made to adopt some shorter method of electing national dele- Kates. President Fred S. Putnam is a n a - 1 ticnal delegate by virtue of his office. J. F. Ash was high man in the vote, IV-hUe John Deffenbaugh of Decatur was second hlSh. The oflier eleven men elected are: Edward Landwehr, SI. L. Simpson, R. S. Phllpot, TV. S. Heiss, J. Emerson, C. I* Loveless. W. E. Gllchrist, H. M. Pilyeu, P. W. Somerslad. R. Smith and D. F. Cowger.

Stine has sent out about 7,000 samples of the screw holes or which ho is the inventor ana which he expected to sell to architects, hardware dealers. manufacture!s, plumbfrs, oar builders and the like. He Is doing a really extensive job ot circularizing and sampling prospective buyers. His response so far has been gratifyinir. He is expecting to begin to solicit orders before long:. The samples are elaborate. They are placed in a small block of box wood to which two other blocks are fastened by screws. A label is pasted around the principal block. A tag containing the address of the dealer is fastened to the back by one o£ the screws. The sample U carried by a two cent stamp. Circulars accompany it under separate cover. The main block contains five or six sizes of the brass screw holes. If Mr. Stine's plans work out the screw holes will be sold by mail to all corners of the United States. They are Inexpensive and effective. The strong argument in their favor is that they furnish a permanent setting- for screws, never wearing out and never requiring new driving. Dispatchers Have Many Things to Keep in Mind. There are three men in Decatur who do not have to guess as to who has full size hot weather job. They know. They are th« three train dispatchers at WabMh division headauartert. From mldniffht Thursday to midnight Friday they moved 108 trains single handed and with the mercury r«»itatlnr grace, fully around the 100 mirk. SIZE OF JOB. In erd«r to aocompiun this t«»t «»« «f the men had to jump from Decatur nearly to Danvilje. back to Pec»tur, south of Efflnfhtm »nj again south to St. Louis and kaep finger on every mile of track on «aoh district. In order to *jnreclat» the difficulty of train dispatching, it is necessary to understand a general outline of the work. Each train, pasaengsr, time and local trelchti »nd extra, freights, together with extra engines plying from place to placo over th» division, the number of cars, and the kind of freight trtini, mutt b« kept in a, comprehensive record. The movementi «t eeoh train are noted on a train sheet or ruled p»p,ep about four (set long and more than g, foot wide. PET41L3. The number oj the train, name of the engineer atnd cQftduetor and numb«r of the engine heads each individual column and upon the train's arrival at each station nlong the line U It reporua In to the dispatcher who ion H« arrlnl «nj leavlnr time on the sheet *nd slv»« order* concerning its f u r t h e r movement. Friday there -was 30S of these columns, ?ach to be kept In mind and each supervised In order thftt hundreds of peapU might reach home In time (or dinner and not a funeral. Each at the three dispatchers sat for eight houaewlth a leltpftone receiver over nit head and played checkers with humanity and pantinx enftnM and train orens ana yard crews and station agents and switches and casting tracks and junctions and time cards and a. few hundred other little details, without a mltnap or a spin, yew chess players, no matter how expert, could bring in their 100 men without disarranging so much as a paun THINGS HE KXOWS. An exact knowledge of the time each train should make over a given territory is demanded of the dispatcher, as well as the exact knowledge of the whereabouts of escb train. When a freight Is not reported Into a wav ttatlon on the minute It should be, the dispatcher calls t h a t station and wants to know teh reason why. He learns It and tUen has to tear down the little house of movements he hat built and sat It MP again with readjustment of a few seconds In its foundation. "vVith 108 trains moving over a territory of about 200 miles at tne some time, there is something doing every minute. The penmanship required in day's shirt alone la voluminous enough to cause heart trouble in a book-keeper, and the amount of language used up In a day would run the mediation conference all summer. THEIR HOURS. The first Decatur dispatcher goes to work at j n i d n l p h t and works until 8 a.m. when he Is relieved. Tha second takes charge of the sheet and trainmovements u n t i l 4 p. m . when the last man takes his plare and works until midnight. Each man holds^i of live? m the cup of his hand every day.

LIFE'S LIGHTER HOURS. WABASH WATER PROBLEMS. Wabash water engineers In DecaUir ara at present engasei In solving the ·water problem for the western division. There are many company wells that have Jr!e4 up and long trains are necessary to cart water to various roints where engines stop to drink. The character of the supply In the welt, too, is causing trouble, and experts he-re are experimenting feverishly with compounds which will relieve the trouble of engine foaming and other results which go to spell engine Inefficiency. Water treating plants where aoda ash is combined with the supply are being Installed by members of the local office on the ^Detroit division also and are eald to be entirely successful, juat ad the plants on the Decatur division have proved themselves a success. About Decatur the 'Wabash finds the most trouble in the burning of wooden culvert bridges and in the danger to wheat fields which when lighted by a stray spark or live coal, soon burn up into heavy damages. The country is | M\id to be tinder dry In this vicinity and the utmost eautlon Is being used by englnejnen to ward against starting blazes In fields and on bridges. No water 1» being hauled on this division, ana the supply on hand ta expected to holfl-~out. (12.50 EXCURSION. In accordance with the popular desire manifested by Decatur people who each day call the Wabash ticket office with inquiries about Chicago excursions, word hag been received from St. Louis to the) effect that a J2 50 round trip excursion will be run Into the city from Decatur next Friday and Saturday, although the abolishing of northern excursion* had been considered favorable. Tickets will be honored on train No. 12 Friday night on train No. H Saturday morning and train No. 12 Saturday nieht, and will be honored on all returning trains Sunday. Passenger officials say that It Is a curious fact that excursion travel Is always heavier when the weather Is especially hot end unfavorable, and they expect the coming excursion to be a bl one. Mrl.

In asking for support for this nomination, I do so with a full appreciation of the great importance attaching to the position, since I have been a Deputy Sheriff, of the county, for a number of years. The Sheriff being the chief executive officer of the county, it is highly important that he should be a man who is willing to do his d u l y at all times, without fear or favor. Being in the prime of life, and it nominated and elected will give my very best endeavor and promise that I will do all in my power to enforce the proper observance of the law, by a careful and painstaking administration of the affairs of the office. I will greatly appreciate the support of all voters who can consclentionsly support me for the position mentioned. Respectfully submitted. AflV. CHARLES E. TANDY.

Starr left in Decatur only two members of the Knights of Honor, an organization that waa one of the most popular in the city in the 80's. The two surviving members are N. L. Krone and I* I* rfa.worth. There is some talk of trying to revive the order, but nothing definite to that end has been done yet. The K n i g h t s of Honor -were organized In this city in 1877 and thii was the first mutual Insurance organization in the county. Its membership Increased, and several years after its organization it ijeached as high as 140 members. It flourshed for a good many years.

In sections farmer* quit threshing- wheat in order to cut oats, but next week will gee practically all of it threshed and dellvcd to country elevators as no one saemed to stack or bin their wheat. The yield in most sections exceeded expectations. Quality excellent except ocasional parcels that wer« off erade on account of smut. Hope farmer* will trjat their seed wheat this year, as It Is a, simple process and kills he smut (Term and lares many del- UK in discounts. Most railroads have made special «f- 'orts to furnish cars to raov» wheat and It U being- loaded out of ele«tor» rapidly. CORN AT DAHCHS* POINT. Corn has made good protrress up to this time, although in many parts ot the state rainfall bas) been llffht throughout, the season; subsoil does not bold the usual reserve- of molitura and Vw, at the critical time of shooing and tassel forminr, the crop feels :he drouth more keenly than «»«r. We hear many complaints of £17. withered, lifeless tassels and believe farmers are justified In their ejarm retarding present condition*.
