NEARLY 8000 SIGNATURES.
There is an agent on the 0.-W. R &
N\ who is somewhat given to gathering
statistics. His latest fffort was to de
termine how many times during the
month he would sign the name of his
station. The result was that during the
month of February he had written Hot
Lake, his station name, 7832 times.
This seems to those not understanding
the conditions obtaining at Hot Lake
station to be almost out of reason, but,
when we remember that the agent there
is also Western Union operator, freight
agent and express agent the figures do
not seem too high. Etch ticket sold
squired three signatures.
The Hot Lake station was established
for the sole beuefit of Hot Lake Sana
torium patrons and all the business fur
niehnd this station is derived from that
health-renewing institution. As an
evidence oi the business transacted at
this station the official records show
that during the year 1910, 10,000 pa
tients visited Hot Lake Sanatorium.
All passenger trains stop there,besides
a dozen or more freights, therefore it is
easy to see that the Hot Lake Sana
torium railroad agent has something to
do besides watching the vapor arising
from the great mineral spring.

The Story That Went With thj Elc-

stacip collectors they contain.
"The elephant's Inwk hoax" is one of
tbe best jokea ever played at the ex
pensp of collectors. It was worked on
a half dozen well known philatelists
fliio were astonished by the announce
nic>::t that a well known New Ycrl;
stamp collector had secured the only
■•opy of a peculiar stamp later known
:ia "the elephant stamp bill." This
stamp bore as Its central design the
figure of an elephant with the beak
■mil wings of a bird. This stamp, si;
the story wont, was designed by a well
known South American revolu;ioui«i
who was about to overthrow the exist
ing regime. The design on the stamp
was meant to designate that the new
ruler had the strength of an elephant
and the swiftness of a bird. But
alas for the plans of mice and men:
His plot was discovered, and amonir
the supplies seized were half a milii<%
of the stamps of the new and yet un
horn republic. These were ordered de
stroyed. One of the soldiers had man
aged to smuggle about a hundred of
these away, but he was finally caught
and shot at daybreak. Before his exe
cution, however, he had given one
stamp to a little boy. and this had in
some very reasonable and plausible
way found the New York collector
after many months.
The stamp was naturally of great
price and would have brought a big
sum had not several collectors com
pared notes and found that each had

Lord St. Helens, the British ambassa

to the emperor's death.
"Why do you speak so gingerly
about a matter so notorious?" cried
Tennyson Impulsively, leaning across
his neighbor, a Russian whose breast
was covered with orders. "We know
very well in England that the Emper
or Paul was murdered. Count Zoboff
knocked him down and Benningsen
and Count Pahlen strangled him."
There was a strained silence; then
the ambassador abruptly changed the
subject As the guests filed out into
an adjoining room Lord St. Helens
drew Tennyson aside. "Don't go into
the next room," he whispered, "but fly
