The Baltimore and Ohio South Western Railway has* been experimenting with electric motors on turn-tables, burning locomotives nt divisional points and terminals is a service of tnuch annoyance and no little expense to railroad companies. It generally tr.kes four men to turn a locomotive, and while they are doing so their regular work is abandoned. Experiments were made with an electric motor on the 60-foot turntable at Chllllcothe with such success ' that the Park Street turn-table in Cincinnati was similarly equipped. The result has boon rather astonishing in the matter of expense. The current was purchased from the power plant, and It cost on an average of less than one-half a cent for each time the table was turned. When this same table was operated by hand it cost 12 cents for each engine. The yearly saving is about $709. Whom the heart ot man shuts out.

Mr. lligglns a favor the next day, ana from that time on, pieco-meal, I picl-:- cd up considerable of hi* history. Tho bnttlo which so nearly cost him | his lite was fought some thirty years ' ap-o across the river, and several miles above Grand Island. The Pawnee Indians wcro returning from their annual full hunt, and accompanied by their squaws and pa.pooscs they were c-unned between two sand hills. About daylight a largo herd of buffaloes wcro observed coming toward the camp and iu spite of tho advice of the old Indians and Mr. Higglns all the young braves mounted their ponies and start- wl in pursuit. As scon as they were well HcattorcKl, a largo body of Sioux, who hart driven the buffaloes ahead of them dashed down on tho camp, while another body looked after the Haw- u<«e« who were chasing the buffalo. Meantime, fearing just what happened Mr. Higglun and tho old Indians had "the camp on the move in the direction o£ the Pawnee reservation somo twenty-five or thirty miles to the north whilo they prepared to detend tho rear The battle, however, was a long rout for the Pawnees. The Sioux w,.ro Poorly armed, which fact helped ,„ prevent them from exterminating Iho Pawnees. Mr Higgins was well armed, and tuc Sioux soon learned to respect his deadly rifle. He kept well In the rear, a hazardous thing to do. A party of Indians attracted, his attention by making repea-ted dftphas. while a dar u« ,-Hlof Viuwled up on lum through the rru^H, and was just in the act of bringing- his tomahawk down on the white nuin'B hcvad, when the latter saw him.; Tic threw up bis left baud to break tho blow, and bis lingers cut oft •is tho blade descended. With his ; ,-U'ht baud be grabbed tha tomahawk.; and then followed a desperate strug- "h< for Us possession. The Indian rtrc»'" lisa long knife oud slashed Mr. I-HggluB aerosn the face three times and eleven times across tho breast, but still the brave white man held on to the tomahawk. Finally ho wrench-, d It away from tto lufiian and knock-; 3 his bmlns out with it. He then; limbed on bis pony and rode away. 1 . It was a-long and desperate .ride to ho reservation, and many of the law- icftt never reached it alive. Badly wounded as ho was, Mr. Hl«gins made tho trip, and fought all along tho bloody U Tliero was probably a romaface con neoted with his marriage, though never learned the facts.

Unlike most millionaires and busy men of affairs, "Joe" Ladue, with the hearty good fellowship which characterizes the Western pioneer, insists that each letter so received shall have a reply, and in moat instances tho worthy "begging" ones get fat enclosures, too. "I'm a very busy man these days, he said to the newspaper man. "Since coming back from the Klondike I have, been compelled to cross tho continent four times) on business in connection with my company, and now I have to go again. I shall, however, be most of the winter in Chicago, as I propose to take with me on my return to Dawson City everything needed In the way of modern mining machinery, HO that commencing next spring, notwithstanding the inexhaustible resources of our mines, not an iota of gold will be lost through lack of proper facilities for mining U. I shall return to Dawaon about March 15." "No," he continued," the wealth OL the Klondike has In uo way been exaggerated." In personal appearance the Klondike dug is a rugged, well-proportioned man of medium height, with hair and mus- ache of almost raven black, lie has a mild conservative method of speech, but when interested, bin honest, gray eyea snap of the tire and determination which marks tho successful pioneer. He is temperate in his statements and every word ho utters concerning the new Eldorado be has given to the world carries with it a conviction o£ truth.
