Kiner tells the following amusing little
yarn ia this week's issue of his Geneseo
The eminent gentleman who wrote
"the coarse of true love never did run
smooth." was not talking through his hat.
He was a level-headed man, whose hat
was square on his head, not bung on bis
right oar, where he conld talk through it.
For a young man who will bear us out in
these statements, we refer to Mr. Gregg,
formerly of the Normal . For one Tear

sisted in the work by two other gentle
There is a young lady in Oeneseo who
is all in all to Mr. Gregg, wbo now lives
in Rock Island. Last Saturday evening
he expected to visit ber. He went to tbe
depot at Rock 111 and to take the accom
modation freight, only to find that it now
starts at 2:15 p.m., instead of at 4, as
formerly. Tbe train bad been gone near
ly two hours when be arrived, enveloped
in a linen duster and perspiration.
He anxiously inquired -when the next
train carrying passengers would leave.
He found that it would not leave Rock
Island till 10 o'clock. It would reach
Geneseo at 11. . This would not do. He
wandered out on the platform, and mop.
ped bis braw. A freight train was about
ready to pull out. An observing brake
man noticed the young ex-editor's dis
"Want to go east?' acked the brake
man. "I want to go to Geneseo," said Gregg,
biiQttuitig, us he began to eee cope

melon patch beyocd a dreary desett of
' Gimme half a dollar and crawl into
that car," said tbe braktman, indicating
an empty stock car.
Tbe half dollar changed hands at once.
Gregg had last time to run in and tele
graph bis girl "coming on next freight,"
when tbe train started. He flew back
and got in tbe stock car, and blest bis
lucky star that he could get to Geneseo
even in that manner.
Now, since the double track has been
completed between Geneseo and Sheffield,
a good many through freights do not slop
here. They get water at Sheffield and
Colona. In consequence the train con
veying the anxious Gregg, when it struck
tbe long down grade west of town, hit a
gait of 40 miles an hour. Gregg, with
his head sqaeiZi.i betweta thj cat duor
and the jam. could 6te his best girl on the
depot platform, waving ber handker

of dumb astonisnment as tbe train dashed
by, and get his bead hauled inside the car
again, when he was iu Atkinson. The
train didn't stop till it reached Sheffield.

arrival too late for a call cn his telovtd.
A brakeman stood near a freight that was
about to leave. Tbe half-dollar prelimi

turned on all steam up east of the stock
yards. Gregg says he knows that the
train went through Geneseo at 6J miles
an hour. He could i us; see tbe despair
on his girl's face, and two pearly tears
rolling down ber cheeks in the electric
lights on the depot platform. He had
just time to observe these, and to spend
a few moments in meditation and prayer,
when the train halted at Colona.
He got off at Colona and inquired wben
the next passenger went east. He was
told that it would not leave till between
12 and 1 o'clock, but that a freight train
was about to start. The station agent
was absolutely frightened when Gregg
brought his fiat down so bard that tbe
rocky little depot rocked worse than ever.
