The local editor of the Keokuk Consti-tutm-Vemocrui
bai keen wniiing up a
Teportorial experience T?hih is not un
osoal to the man whose life h as been de
void to any considerable degree to the
inveEliaatioa aad p-roper recording of
current events. It is not much of a ro
mance either, and here it is: '
People who read the news of the day
seldom have occasion to think of the en
ergy, physical, and mental, expended in
Retting the news before it appears in its
published shape. The experience writ
ten by himself of a reporter while "worn
ing up a story," will show some of the
things encountered in that work. The
reported facts in tha case of this peculiar
item as th?y reached the office were of
such a nature that a reporter, after hav
ing been given them, was placed on the cse
with instructions to thoroughly investi
gate it, which instructions meant that he
was to know all about it before he show
ed up a?ain at the office. He was soon
in the vicinity of the scene of what was
eaid to be the shooting of a colored min
ister of the gospel.
'In the vicinity" in this case meant out
in the country just beyond the limits of
the city. Livery stabies do not abound
in the neighborhood, so the reporter
walked, wuich is usually the case. Con.
suiting a chart, be started, his umbrella
under his arm, for it had rained, and
threatened to do it again. The board
sidewalks, last reminders of the city.
Boon gave out, aDd. bearing in mind the
good old gospel hymn, the reporur kept
in the middle of the road. At last a h.lt
was called, and promptly ofcejed. The
confines of his chart had been rescind,
and still the "cornfiald," reported to be
the scene of the shooting, had not been
found. Entering a farn. yard an icquiry
was made for John Smith's house.
"I shows Mm to you," said the farmer.
The reporter's spirits arose.
"You s;e dot trees?"
The reporter saw a c'ump of trees
about two miles up the valley, on an t la
'Veil, dot is Schon's house. Ven vou

fore you comt mit dot. It pnng9 vou

The reporter thanked the farau r very
heartily. He descended into a hollow,
and failed to locate the hnuse among the
trees, when he ascended the next hill. He
kept on in the road, howevej. uatil th
lane ended in a meadow. He crossed the
meadow and a corn fiVU certain he wnnM
see his touse from the other tidp. but he
didn't. Another mile was traveled, and
then enuring another farm yard ute, he
asked for John Smith's house.
This time a woman answered Lim
She bad jast lifted a bicyrle down the
front steps of the farm house.
JSO indeed; John Smith don't livp
here. That's bis corn field, though." said
she, pointing to one through which the
reporter naa just pass-.d. "lou lt find
his house over on the nther si ie of the
hill, among those tuts."
The women then mounted the bicycle
and proceeded to ride around the farm
yard. The reporter uttered sime more
thanks ODd reUaced his steps through the
corn field. As he reached the o her side
of the field, be came upon a woman milk
ing a cow. Whether it was the reporter's
sudden appearance upon the quiet scene,
or a more than usual ressure, by the
energetic farm woman will never be
known, but, at any rale, the cow gave a
suauen jump, upsetting the pail of rnilk.
lnecow s sudden change of location
did not, however, take her beyond the
reach of the farm woman's foot, which
instantly landed with a resounding
thump, upon the lower portion of the
cow's anatomy. A piece of fence rail
lyine close bv. was also brought into rr-
quisition. to emsbasize the furm woman's
displeasure at the unmannerly antics of

slowly, loosening her 6kirtB. which, dur

The young woman proved to be the
daughter of the mm who was supposed
to have shot the midnight marauder. Of
coarse, it was all a mistake. Ttie story
was not true.
"My pap didn't have no g n in his hand

been stolen, and we 'spect. somebody,
but pap hain't shot him yet."

Mr. R 8n field said thit in no case hai
the wages of any man working by the

piece work had been changed, in socce
cases by increasing them, and in others
by reduclog them. Being asked why
wages had been reduced, be said that the
company had put in new machinery, and
Lad adopted new methods, and that with
these the men could make as much money
per day as they had formerly made. In
a large number of instances they had
the men figure on the work and make
their own estimate of what they should
receive for it, and in every instance te
company had paid them their price. Be
ing asked why any rates had been raised,
he said that some of tneir men were not
getting enough for their work, and the
company had simply sought (in the
changes) to equalize wages, and he did
not think the gross amount to be paid
to the men would be a dollar less than
formerly, or that the wages per day of
any mm would be changed to any ex
