Upper Hall to Be Opened Into
Within the next month a new and inter
esting feature will be added to Union Sta
tion. Yesterday morning workmen began the
task of cutting away a section of the cell
ing of the main waiting-room, which, when
completed, will give a view of the lower
waiting-room from the hall above. The sec
tion of the celling to be cut out Is about
thirty-five feet long and twenty feet wide.
When finished a balustrade will be built
around the opening, giving those in the
upper waiting-room a view of the lower.
Many travelers who pass through the Un
ion Station do not visit the upper hall, which
is spacious, with frescoed walls and ceil
ing, for the simple reason that they do
not know It exists, and many times when
the lower waiting-room is crowded there
are but few occupants of the grand hall.
The balustrade will occupy the center of
the grand hall and will be surrounded with
divans and chairs, where travelers may

"It Is all true. 1 cut his throat."
"On Wednesday, Juno 27," said Tomlinson,
"Gaines and 1 met near my father's home

Gaines and I met at Lentz's sate. Gaines
went Into the stable and hitched up lentz's
horse and buggy. I stood guard outside.
Gaines came driving out. He was on tho
right side of the buggy. As ho turned the

the buggy. I told him to come no nearer.
"Lentz approached. Again I warned h:m.
Still he pressed toward me. I shot. Lentz

Gaines hissed: "It's a liel"
Tomlinson pretended not to hear, and re

Is to charge one cent for the book additional
