Wit on The Mop
The-Missouri Pacific, like some
other railroads, is freely supplied
vith unprofitable branch liues
which were built for no other ap
parent purpose than to furnish
an outlet for stockholder's mon

over the map, beginning nowhere
und ending uowhere.
On such a branch line in Cent
ral Kansas, uow belonging to the
Missouri Pacific, a passenger who
evidently had traveled far to go' a
little way stepped off. the train

J, H. Moore, editor and publisher
of the Fulton, (Ind.) Leader, takes
alfall out of the would-be city humor
ist, who poke fun at the news items
of the country papers in the ronow
ing from a recent issue Of the Load
"If there Is one thluR that makes
the average country newspaper man
sick at his stomach It is to read tie
oriticlsms written by olty guys' as
to what should be used in a country
newspaper and whatnot. They .'mow
absolutely nothing of the people,
their environments, their tastqp,
likes or dislikes aud yet they write
lengthy articles on their needs and
what constitutes a paper. Laugh
at tho soaiety news of tho ordinary
country paper, etc. "Why, it looks
just as ridiculous to the country
editor to see tho city papers catering
to the man ot dollarB. glossing over
tho crimes of wealth and holdlugup

making a column article out of a

Tho work of tho ordinary soctloE

painstaking. I have In mind a typical
illustration, declares a writer In th
Boston Herald. This man's first job
in tho morning and the last at night
was track walking. During many
years of my service In tho switch
tower he was a frequent visitor during
tho night time. It must not be sup
posed that ho was called out or paid
overtime for this service. The fact ii
ho 'worked Instinctively and the, Joli
waB on hla mind. Tho pattering of the
rain or the falling of tho snowflake
was all the calling ho rocelvod. In
such cases ho got up, came down to
tho tower, put his head in at the door,
and simply said to tho toworman,
"How's everything?" And then, If it
happened to be toward morning, he
would tako his shovel or his wrench,
according to the weathor, and sally
out on his usual tour of inspection.

Is to hunt up and recognlzo at

or roadbed. He carefully scrutinizes
rails, switches and frogs for breaks,
or oven indication of flaws. As he
.proceeds he tightens up a bolt at ono
place, knocks in a spike at another,

a stream of water away from the

System In Moving Trains.
The dexterity with which dispatch
ers and towormen Juggle trains In a
great terminal is a marvel of modern
life which, on account of its very mag.
