Engineer Make 50 a Mi note.
There is a little story connected
with the record-breaking run of the
Lowe special over the Santa Fe, Chi
cago to Los Angeles, in less than 53
hours, which is not generally known.
It isolated that Mr. Lowe offered
the engineer who hauled the train
from San Bernardino to Los'AngeJcs
on Uie home stretch of (50 miles
tlx? Finn of $50 a minute for every
minute gained over the schedule. En
gineer Warboy turned the wheels at
a 50-second clip for each mile to Pas
adena, but had to slow down in the
suburbs of Los- Angeles. He pulled
into La Crande station, Los Angeles,
just f2 minutes after leaving San Ber
nardino, gaining nine minutes on the
whirlwind schedule and thereby earn
ing $150 extra pin money.
The Santa Fe passenger department;
will soon publish a pamphlet giving
full details of the swift flight of the
Lowe special, which in several in
stances exceeded J0 miles an hour.
An average of nearly 43 miles an hour
-vas maintained, in the face of having
to cross four high ranges of the
Bockies, and with little previous se
lection of engines or crews.

Death of Thomas Armstrong
of Preemptou. .
Business was practically suspended
yesterday afternoon in the village of
Sherrard during the hours of the fu
neral of David Evans, one of the lead
ing residents there,. who died from a
patalytic stroke. The Sherrard mine
closed down and many of the business
places closed their doors. It was
probably the largest funeral ever
held in the village. Mr. Evans was a
member of the local lodges of Knights
of Pythias, Odd Fellows ami United
Mine Workers, and the three organiz
ations turned out in a body. Mr. Ev
ans was 41 years of age. He was a
native of Pennsylvania, but had lived
in Illinois since lie was 19. For a time
he was engaged in business in Bock
Island. At the time of his death he
was proprietor of the Central hotel
at Sherrard. He is survived by his
widow and three 'children.
Heart Trouble Cannes Death.
The remains of Thomas Armstrong,
whose sudden death at tlrinnell, Iowa,
was chronicled in yesterday's Argus,
arrived here- late in the afternoon and
were removed to the family home at
Preemption. Mr. Armstrong's demise
was due to heart trouble. He went to
(irinnell to attend the funeral of his
brother's wife, Mrs. .Arthur Arm
strong, which occurred Monday. In
the. evening of the day he retired at
the home of his brother about !
o'clock, appearing in his usual good
health. An hour later members of
the household were aroused by groans
from Mr. Armstrong's room. A physi
cian was summoned, but he could do
nothing to prolong life, and death en
sued shortly. The funeral will be
held tomorrow from the Preemption
home at 11 o'clock.
Demise of Mrs. Cool.
Mrs. Elizabeth Cool died Mmday
night at the home of her daughter,
Mrs. S. Quick, in Cordova. The fu

Plumb Bancroft, superintendent of
waterworks, was- before the monthly

buildings be. fitted out with spring

No action was taken by the board, al
