olution to request tho city council to
replace tho hitching rings on South
Main street which had so mysterious
ly been cut off sovoral weeks ago.

that until tho rings wero replaced or

nished n number of farmers had de
cided to ship tholr produces to Clove

Faci'ities Of Modern Railroad
To Meet Emergencies
Sovoral persons happened to he

nessed nn Incident which threw a
very interesting side-light on tho al
most limitless posibilltles of high
class railroad servlco under modern
Two of the party n nowspaper man
and a well known Chicago banker
happened to be in conversation with
one of tho traffic officials of tho Penn
sylvania. Suddonly there entered on
tho sceno of wild-eyed individual who
announcod himself, between gasps,
as tho special representative of a
thoatrical company which had missed
train connections for Chicago, but
which had to bo in that city in time
for an evening performance.
Tho traffic man asked two or three
leading questions in about tho samo
number of seconds, got a complete
grasp of' tho situation, and arranged
for a special train In another instant.
Within half hour n special train,
consisting of 3 baggage cars, 2 coach
es nnd 2 sleepers pulled out of tho
Pittsburg yards. It carried SO pas
songers In addition to all tho baggago
of tho company, nnd a dining car was
added at Ft. Wayne.
The two Chlcagoans, who had been
pormltted to travel on tho train, wero
very much Impressed with tho smooth
ness nnd enso with which the 'whole
thing was dono. Notwithstanding
tho presence at tho Pittsburg sta
tion of four scoro of excited people, all
demanding to know different things at
once, tho work of making up and load
ing tho train proceeded with tho ut
most swiftness. Tho nccesary right-of-way
ordors wero dispatched and
thoro wns not a single hitch during
tho ontlro run.
It was an examplo of tho marvelous
facilities of a modern railroad organ
