Speaking of the union station. it is
said to be the finest in the world, its
majestic masonry covering two
squares near the business dart of the
city. and its vast track capacity being

32 tracks, switches to which are

smooth one, and nothing disturbed

hours in Kansas City might be spent

Credulity Of Women.
Chairman Shonts of the Isthmian
Canal commission told this story, ac
cording to tihe Detroit Free Press, in
illustration of woman's credulity:
"A young man entered the drawing
room of the girl whom he was soon
"The girl came down -o meet him
with a severe frown on her pretty
" 'John,' she said 'father saw you
this. morning going into a pawnbro
ker's with a large bundle.'
"John flushed. Then he said in
" 'Y,es, that is true. I was taking
the pawnbroker some of my old
clothkes. You see, he and his wife are
frightfully hard up.'
" 'Oh, John, forgive me!' exclaimed
the young girl. 'How truly noble
you are!' "

Columbia Record, 26th.
Rensey Cunningham. a negro con
vi here from Abbeville. was given
his iber:y today after taking twenvy
eight years to serve a twelve-year
sntence for manslaughter. The fact
that he escaped October 4, 1S883, and
enjoed such liberty as a constant
dread of and ever vigilant watchiul
ness against recapture would permit
unil he was picked tip again on
August 16, 1899. and required to serve
out the remainder of his twelve years,
accounts for the fact that he took
more than twice as long -o expiate
his crime than was necesary. He
wa but a lad when he went in, being
only 18 years old; he came out a
gray-haired old man today, bent in
body, at the age of 46, and his face
seamed with lines of hardship. Since
his admission to the penitentiary in
1877 he has witnessed the admission
into that institution of 14,286, which
is more than the population of any
city in the state outside of Charles
ton ad Colum'bia. He was recaptured
within sight of the gray walls of the
penitentiary sixteen years after his es
cape. When picked up he was at
work on the quarry just across the
Congaree from the penitentiary.

that others can do what I cannot.
