m .Kentucky. The only way that you
can tell the direction the train is run
ning is by the way tho seats are turn
ed. I was on that train ono day last
winter, going from Jtussellvillo out to
Adairsville, a distance of only twelve
miles. On the train was a clothing
man, who was fretting considerably
about the slow time. Finally he con
cluded that he couldn't stand it any
longer, and he got out and walked.
He got so far in advance that he
thought the train had probably goris;
pack, bo he sat down to wait for it.
The exercise that he had taken had
exhausted him very much,-and before
he knew what he had done ho had
keeled over aad gone sound asleep
between the rails. About 9 o'clock
that night tho passengers and offi
cers of the train were startled
by a continuous blowing of the whistle
and loud cries as if some one was in
deep distress. We immediately went
forward, and found to our horror that
the train was slowly but surely pass
ing over the prostrate form of our
clothing man. The brave engineer
whistled down brakes and made an
heroic effort to reverse the engine.
But, alas, she would not reverse worth
a cent. It seems that this was the
first live thing that this-trbin had
ever caught, and that it intended to
run over this man if it took all the
winUr. It had passed now over his'
feet, and yet the engineer said that if
she continued to make schedule time
and if the water did not get too low
in the boiler, it would probably arrive
at his knees by midnight. The poor
fellow seemed to realize his sad fate
and to appreciate the. fact that death
would sooner or later occur. He

Yestetrday Mr. Longloy who is an

What is it?"

When the reporter reached the
shops he was carried into the back
way of the office, and running from
an old piece of boiler to the house
was a large spider-web upon which
was the word "war" as plainly as
! could be made.
"Now, what do you think of that?"
asked Mr. Longley.
"Don't know," was the reply,
"Well a little of this goes a long
ways with me. I don't like for spi
ders to be cutting any such capers
around me. I would like to know
why the blasted thing couldu't have
spelt something else?"
The spider was still on the web and
the many people who visited the shop
expressed it as their belief that they
had never before seen a spider like it.
It was of a deep yellow with black
stripes and very long black legs.
