went on about his work, but that was
not all he thought
Pulling out of ICoria several miles
and while running at full speed, he saw
the two weary pedestrians and, with
never a word, he brought the big loco
motive to a quick and sudden stop.
Conductor Carothers came running to
ward the engineer, shouting, "What's
the matter, Bob?"
"I want you to carry that old woman
and the kid to Douglas," the engineer
replied. "What's the fare? Get 'em on
board." And Carothers did.
Armstrong paid full fare, $7.70 for the
woman, and half fare, $3.S5, for the
child, the whole amounting to $11-55
and again the big engine was soon un
If the -whistle of the locomotive was
anjr shriller the balance of the trip to
Douglas, or if it was blown any oftener
and passengers on the train say it
was nothing was ever said about it
by the road's operating department.
Neither has anything been said about
the extra bursts of speed the train made
that morning and passengers say they
noticed that. They also say it was j
impossible to lell whether Armstrong,
clad in his dirty and greasy overalls,
was any happier that the dust begrimed
and travel stained woman and child
were riding in the day coach, but they
think he was.
Conductor Carothers, upon returning
from his trip to El Paso, told W. J.
Spohr at the union station of the inci
dent when he turned in the cash fare
duplicate slips paid for by Armstrong.
Spohr was it accidentally or casually
related the story to W. M. Johnson, Mr.
Simmons's chief clerk, and then went dn
a three weeks's vacation, forgetting all
about the occurrence. Mr. Johnson, not
accidentally, related the facts, to Mr.
Simmons, and Mr. Simmons intention
ally wrote to Mr. Hawley, enclosing a
voucher for $11.55 In favor of Mr.
Armstrong for Mr. Hawley to vali
date. "That letter of Mr. Simmons may
sometime be seen framed and hanging
on the wall of a Southwestern office.
It has already been spoken of as an ex
ponent of pure diction.
The concluding paragraph of the let
ter however, recites: "Armstrong's ac
tion was charity, pure and simple."

Supplementary Kates Come
Prom Fire Actuary aiid
The supplementary schedule giving
-the reratings -made by the state actuary
after a reinspection of the fire insur
ance risks have been onade, are being
received by the local fire insurance
agents. The supplementary schedules
.hnr that reductions have been made
in the rates as originally announced
ranging from 1 to 25 percent, and in a
few instances, "where changes have been
imade 'in the risk by which the hazards
are reduced, considerable change has
been made in the rate to favor the pol
icy holder. All of the supplementary
rates have not been received yet and
another bunch Is expected from the Dal
las office of the actuary this week.
One local agent said "Wednesday
morning that while the rerated risks
showed reductions in a number of in
stances, the reductions "were not suf
ficient to change the jjeneral insurance
situation as to the high rates now ap
plying in El Paso, and that the rerat
ing did not offer an adequate remedy
for the great increase made possible
by the new Insurance laws.

The historic value of Johnsons island
lies not merely in the number of fa
mous soldiers Tvho Tere confined there
during the war, but also in the anany
stories of attempted daring rescues
which cluster about it. For three years
plot after plot was laid to free the
J thousands who lay In captivity on the
island. Every attempt, however, failed.
The anain guard of the island was the
gunboat Michigan, now the "Wolverine,

clutches a smusket, the stock of which
rests on the ground. The left hand is
raised to the forehead, shading the eyes
and the figure seems to be peering into
the far distance, toward the south
