THE MAN WHO NEVER LOST.
"The man who never knew defeat:"
How proudly does be stride!
How blindly thoughtless people, too.
Go flocking to his side!
"The man who never knew defeat"
May set a nation free
He may be great, but there is one
More great by far than he!
"The man who never knew defeat"
Has never passed the test
That lies behind the truly great-'"
And proves them first and best!
"The man who never knew defeat" '
Is pitiful and small .
Beside the one who loses and
Can triumph after all.
"The man who never knew defeat"
May be the one to choose
-As leader In the battle but
What If he .chanced to lose?
Above the man who never lost -
The oce to trust is he
That bravely rises from defeat
And goes' to victory!

"About six years ago I was riding
through southeastern Colorado on a
west-bound train. I was only making
.a six-hour journey of it, and so I took
the smoker and stayed there. There
were about 25 or 30 men in the smoker,
all pretty comfortable looking chaps.
A dyspeptic-looking little man, about 40
years old, with a Bostonese dialect, sat
-in the seat ahead of me, and an hour or
so after I boarded the train he engaged
me in conversation.
" 'Belong out this way? he asked me,
iu a characteristic New England drawl.
" 'Yep, said I.
" 'Reason I ask you that, said he, 'is
that I've heard there have beet a lot of
ho!d-upc on the railroads out this way
lately. That right?'
"'Pretty near,' said L
" 'Ever find yourself mixed np in one
of tuose affairs?' he asked me.
" 'Couple times,' I told him.
" 'Did you let 'em go through you?"
"he asked me, with a searching look.
'Don't yon think otherwise for a
"holy minute, said I. 'I am my sole re
maining support, and, in general, I
find life a pretty good game. It's the
best I know anything about, anyhow.'
"'Well,' said the dyspeptic-looking
little chap, in his piping drawl. 'I'd
just like to see the loafers get any of
my money, that's all! I'd just like to
catch them at it!'
"I couldn't help smiling amusedfr.
" 'Why, what would you do? I allied

couldn't have helped it to save me.

Yea, siree, the train robber doesn't
walk in shoe leather that's ever going
to relieve me of a copper cent, and don't
you fail to remember that!'
"The little man, who, as I afterward
ascertained, was on his way to Cali
fornia for his health, looked so puff
toady and fierce while he was getting
off those brave remarks that I couldn't
help but laugh in his face. That net
tled him a trifle, but I smoothed it over
and made a remark or so to him about
the general matter of train hold-ups.
" 'My friend,' said t, in conclusion,
'the only advice I can give you is, if
any of these chaps ever comes along
your way and asks you to call heaven
to witness with your two hands point
ing to the zenith, just you do it,
that's all, and do it in a hurry; do it
a-running; be nice and good about it,
and don't get gay'; don't endeavor to
be frivolous with a man that's got the
edge on you with a 43-caliber lead
rpitter.' . : .? '
"'Just let one of em try it with
me, that's all!' exclaimed the little man,
fiercely, and then we changed the sub
ject. "Well, at about nine o'clock that
night we pulled up at a little station
called Tyrone, to give the engine a
drink. We only halted there about
four minutes, but it was long enough.
The train hadn't got more than five
miles out of Tyrone before we heard
a lot of shots up forward the smoker
was the second car from the engine
and the train came to a halt. The
wheels had scarcely ceased to" revolve,
when, .the front door, of the smoker was
thrown open with a bang, and the com
mand rang through the car like the
craclc-of a whip: -
""'Everybody put 'em up! Quick!'
A tall, raw-boned man, with a strag
gling red mustache, stood in the door
calmly waving .his gun "from side to
side with the characteristic movement
of an expert gun-fanner. .He looked
business- all over, I decided instant-.
ly I'd put my hands up before I'd done
any deciding, however that he wasn't
any amateur, and that he was going
to get all that was coming to him. I
couldn't help, but notice that the dyspeptic-looking
little- man in front of
me threw up his hands with the rest,
although he did a bit of fumbling with
his right hand before it' went up in
" 'Seein that my podner's busy

twinkle fn his" ey"e as he spoke-r-Tll jes'
ask -ywr gentlemen to spring - what
you've got on with one hand at a time,
as I pass along, and I'll do the rest.'
"He wore a hickory bag, suspended
by a string around his neck, in front oi
him a bag similar to those worn by
carpenters or lathers for holding nails
and he just reached out bis left hand
and dropped wallets, "watches and
chains and loose rolls into the bag as
he passed along. None of the vic
tims had a chance to hold out anything
on him, for he was one of the eagle-eyed
species, and he seemed to see all hands
in the car at once.; He walked sideways
down the aisle so as to make sure that
he wouldn't be plunked from behind
after passing along. He was a scientist
in his business, all right, was that taw
boned man, and he didn't miss a trick.
Every, man up forward unquestionably
passed over his ' belongings to be
dr6pped into that roomy bag. " The
little man with the Bostonese accent to
amused me, with his hands sticking up
there as rigid as poles, that I almost
forgot to worry about what I was go
ing to lose when it came my turn. He
had gone as white as a sheet, and he
looked more ghastly as- the raw-boned
robber approached him. Finally it came
his turn.' The robber looked him over
with a half grin.
" 'Sorry, my sawed-off friend. the
robber started to say, when puff! the

around with it, and half a second later
he was butted in the stomach with all
the force the little man from Xew Eng

the robber up, and a minute later we
were all on top of him at once.
"You will try to appropriate what
doesn't belong to you, hey, dog-gone
you! the dyspeptic-looking little man
muttered, standing over the blinded
bandit, who was almost insane with
pain. We bound him securely, did what
we could to alleviate his pain, end put
a guard over him. The robber who
was holding up the engineer, hearing
the agonized shouts of his partner,
concluded that there was nothing do
ing, and, firing a few bluff shots, scam
pered off the tender into the darkness.

AMERICAN HORSES TOO FAST.

Contests la Russia Where Na

i The United States consul general at
St. Petersburg, W. B. Halloway, reports
that a few years ago American horses
could start in all races in Russia, but
they were so much faster than the Bus
sian horses that they were barred from
three big races in order to protect their
own interest; but, as a majority of Rus
sian horsemen now own American
horses, and more are constantly being
bought, there is a growing sentiment
in favor of their being permitted to
start in all races except those intended
exclusively for Russian horses. At one
time it was noted with satisfaction that
American horses had been purchased
for the Russian imperial studs, but re
cently every horse having American
blood has been removed from these
studs. Disinterested persons declare
this to be shortsighted policy, and say
the Americans do 'not care what na
tionality a horse is provided he is fast.

"One of the interesting development
of the last 25 years has been, that of the
soda fountain," says a man who has
been familiar with the course of the
business. "Root beer was the first pop

made it from different formulas, and
some bad very good receipts, men
there was sarsaparilla both sold in
the bottle mostly. Then they began
to get small fountains, with lemon and
vanilla sirups. Following these came
the fruit sirups pineapple, raspberry,
and then, the coffee and chocolate Be-
"As the list began to increase, the
original fountains, which had only one
section with four sirups, were enlarged,
and now there are six and eight sec
tions, with 12 sirups in a section. The
combination of sirups followed alm-
mond, lemon, apricot, peach and ma
ple creams and the various adjuncts

that are chiefly in demand. Chocolate,

are always standards in cold beverages,
and chocolate is one of the most popu

can set a glass of soda before a custom

are required when people are standing

Hardy of the Missouri Pacific railway
learned that an attempt would be
made to rob the express car on the
east-bound Missouri Pacific train, No.

A posse was organized in Sedalia, un

Later one of them, badly wounded,

The arrested robber finally said his

officers, Saturday night, killed two ex
pert safe blowers supposed to be from
Chicago, and wounded another badly.
The tragedy included a running fight
through a hotel in which the armed
burglars were pursued by the officers.
The -men are believed to be those who
recently operated in Galesburg, Free
port and other Illinois cities, making
a specialty of cracking safes in build
ing and loan offices.
On January 0 the safe of the Adama
County Building- and Loan association
was blown open at the noon hour and
cash and securities amounting to $20,
000 taken. Saturday three men came
to Moecker'a hotel, and registered from
Knz-sas City. The proprietor recog
nized their handwriting as being the
same aa that of the men who came
here January 5, and whom he after
wards suspected of being crooks. He
warned the police, and when one went
out he was shadowed by Detective
Gecrge Koch. The stranger acted
queerly, and the officer finally ap- '

suspect to go to the- statical aad ex- -
. plain himself.
i The man drew a pistol, and pointed
it at the officer's heart, but as he did
to. Koch flashed his own and fired four
' shots. Three took effect, and the
, fell dead instantly.
This happened at 11 o'clock Satarday
Meanwhile, the officers ha examined
the baggage of the suspected men, aad
found that it included burglar tooLsv
