CHRISTENSOU,^ A SPRY OLD GENTLEMAN. ttc Loves to Write Poetry at the Age of Ninety-Jive. The Renwick Times last week published a poem from the pen of Noah B. Bacon, of Wesley, and spoke of the old gentleman personally as follows: "Elsewhere in this issue will be found a very interesting little poem, written by Mr. NoaliB. Bacon (father of our banker, Bacon,) on his 94th birthday. The TIMES man called upon the venerable old gentleman and found him engaged in transcribing the verses to send to a friend. We expressed surprise at his being able to write letters at hisage, whenhelaugb- ingly handed us the poem, and explained modestly that he loved to indulge himself a little In this line and had been in .the habit for some years of yvritting a few verses upon each recurring .birthday. We at once suspended the niles of newspaperdom (which .puts a ban upon poeticial contributions and asked permission to publish them. "Father Bacon" will be 95 years old if he lives until Dec. 19th, 1894, and is remarkably active and well-preserved for one of his years. He travels about alone and visits with his child- fen as inclination directs. From his correct and carefully chosen language and intimate knowledge of the world's affairs one would suppose himtobea professional man, and college bred, but instead of this his occupation through life has been farming, and his education and general knowledge of books has been gained almost entirely by such study as he could gain in spare hours, and by obsevation. It is a good illustration of the fact that education dnly draws out or developes what is .in the man. and that whether this is accomplished through the shorter and easier means of schools and academies or through the laborious method Mr. Bacon and thousands of others have •had to persue, the man is nevertheless educated, the chief difference being that the self-educated and self made man deserves the greater credit." Organizing- to Build a Road. • A special from Hawarden says: ''The leading business men of Hawarden are contemplating organizing a company to build a road from Hawarden to Boon. A careful estimate has been made and it is the belief-of those having the project in charge that the right-of-way can be secured at little cost. Many farmers will give the right-of-way, and take stock in the road besides. Rock Valley and Hawarden, as well as the farmers along thpline of ;tb.e new-road, need "it badly,:;and it is believed there will be little trouble to ^rganize a company to build il. If the company is organized 'the inte'ptfon is to .push the work as soon as spring opens, so the road will be in operation before next fall's trade. The new road will.;be an extension of the Omaha." ' Why not organize a company in Algona, and next spring take hold and build a line from Algona to Belmond to connect ''with the Iowa Central. Now is a good time to start the ball .to'-rolllng. It would be of untold benefit to the town to have that branch put in next summer. Let's organize! New Road to the Coast. A new railroad line to the Pacific iSjtp contemplation by eastern capitalist^". It will start at Sioux Falls and an*,i run almost in a direct line to Pierre South Dakota,and from thence west to the eastern part of Wyoming, where it connects with a line running into the coal; region of that state. Senator Pettigrew says that the contract for the first 400 miles of the road has been let and that work will begin on it in, June '95. The section of the road from eastern Wyoming to the Yellowstone Park will be built in 1896, apd the remaining part to Seattle and Tacoma later on. If this scheme Is carried to a success-, consummation it will make the B. G.

Merry of the Illinois Central, for the Mississippi delta for an outing among the bear, deer and wild turkey so plentiful in that section on the country.
