TALES TOLD ABOUT TOWN
THE GltAVEIi TRAIN.
Acquaintances of Deputy. Clerk Sam
Ryerson frequently hear "the gravel
train" spoken of, but not every one
knows just, what the term means. Mr.
Ryerson says it is a real train, with
engine, caboose, and one car. And he
is the engine, for he starts it. The
"gravel train" is a band of three men,
all belonging to one of. the fraternal
lodges, and the observant may see the
"train" every Monday evening wend
ing its way down town,, as the three
men all reside in the same neighbor
hood. The three are sure to be pres
ent at lodge meetings, no matter what
the weather may be, nor whether any
one else attends or nol. The "gravel
train"" is a big factor in keeping up
the activity of the lodge. '. (

the telephone conversation indicated,
and he was still listed as he should be.
