Interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead cf the various quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful

Ticket Agent Plummer of the Rock
Island, has a quaint and curious relic of
the bygone days of dueling orna
menting the wall in his office. It is a
short dueling sword that was picked up
in the old depot on Twentieth street
shortly after President Lincoln made his
famous call for troops, and which was
probably dropped by some soldier going
through. The hilt and handle are quaint
ly ornamented with figures of men en
gaged in deadly combat with ewords,
showing that it was designed for the same
use. It has always remained in the
ticket office, each succeeding agent guard
ing it with scrupulous care. Who knows
but what if tbe old weapon could talk, it
could tell tales that would make the cold
shivers run up one's spinal column.
The Rock Island has opened its line to
Terral, on the Red river, putting 44
miles of new track into service. The
new stations, in order, are: Duncan,
Addington, Sugden, Ryan and Terral. It
is not yet decided to what point in Texas
the line will be extended. A queer fight
broke out in Fort Meno and Darlington
as a result of the Rock Island's extension.
Both were certain the Rock Island would
build through their limits, and real es
tate boomers forced prices up to the pro
hibitive point. The consequence was
that tbe Rock Island was compelled to
build between them, leaving each three
miles away, and the new town of El
Reno is doing all the smiling, while Fort
Reno and Darlington are doing the weep
ing. General Manager St. John of the Rock
Island road has, with a view of lessening
the danger from cholera, issued tbe fol
lowing instructions to agents and con
ductors: "To prevent tbe spread of in
fectious diseases it is hereby made the
duty of conductors to report by wire to
their superintendents who will at once
report to tbe president or secretary of tbe
state board of health, any Immigrants on
their trains suspected of ha ing cholera
or small-pox. Station agents are also re
quired to report such cases as above, and
in addition thereto to report to the local
board of health the arrival of all such
immigrants at their stations, so that such
local boards may have an opportunity of
making such inspection of persons and
baggage as may seem desirable."
