WESTERN FARMERS PROSPEROUS

Washington. "The average laborer
is today living better than Queen Eli
zabeth did in her time," said James
Wilson, secretary of agriculture, upon
his return from a month's vacat'on
on his Iowa farm. He was discussing
the prosperous farmers of the west
and the high wages of the working
men in the east.
The secretary was asked If the
western farmers were really investing
Buch large sums of money in auto
"There is too much truth in those
reKrts," he resjxmded. "The farmer
Is oul of debt. He has paid for his
farm, his fences and his machinery.
He has money In his pockets and big
crops continue to come on. He is
afraid to invest in eautern securities,
lest a year might bring trouble there.
As a result, he puts his money in lux
uries, Instead of channels that might
give return. Why, folks in the ea.U
don't know what luxuries are; they
must go west to find out."

TRAIN ROBBERY IN COLORADO
Five Men Hold Up Passenger Train
and Dynamite Exprest Car, But
Secure No Booty.
Leadvllle, Colo. A daring attempt
to rob the second section of the Den
ver A Rio Grande No. 5 passenger
train was made about 1 o'clock Thurs
day night four miles west of Malta, a
small station near Leadvllle. The ex
press car was dynamited, but, accord
ing to the trainmen, no booty was se
cured. It is believed that the five men,
who were engaged in tho holdup,
crawled on the two engines of No. 5
ot Malta. The train had proceeded
but a short distance when the two
men crawled over the tender of each
engine and compelled the engineers
and firemen to march to the express
car. Engineer Smith of the first en
gine was told to hammer on the door
and order the express messenger to
open it. The latter, however, refused
to open the door and a charge of dy
namite was placed under it and the
door blown open. '
Three or the robbers rushed in,
covering the express messenger with
their revolvers. He was ordered to
open the safe, but without result, ex
cept to completely wreck the interior
of the car.
After firing a parting volley of shots
the robbers disappeared in the dark
ness. One of the trainmen In the mean
time had reached Malta and Sheriff
Campbell with a posse at once started
for the scene.
It is rumored that the safe con
tained a very large sum or money, but
this cannot be confirmed.
