Some of the leading journals of Missouri are discussing the possibilities and probabilities of one Hon. Richard Kerens being elected to the United States Senate from that State. There are insinua tions in some of the papers that the great rail roads of that State, while ostensibly opposing his candidacy, are really for him. That all seems to have a natural sound in Utah. There seems to be some charm connected with the name of San Pedro & Salt Lake railroad. So far it. is not much of a railroad. Some little grading has been done in Nevada, a few miles have been built at the Los Angeles end, but the prosecution, so far as railroad building is concerned, has been limited to less than twenty miles per year for the three years, a rate which will require until 1944 to complete the line to this city. But Mr. Clark has seemed to do pretty well, so has Mr. Thomas Kearns. Mr. Whittemore has begun to acquire a residence in Nevada and why should not Mr. Richard Kerens be making hay while the sun shines in Missouri? We have not heard whether Mr. Kerens has en gaged the services of any church as yet to forward his plans, but it is still early. The member of the firm from Missouri is an expert in finance, and while having full faith in the honor of his fellow Missourians, it is a clear case that he is determined never to be obliged to purchase any of them more than once in a single campaign, no matter in what church they may be communicants. Mr. Kerens has many very splendid Senatorial attributes. He is a shrewd, alert business man, a capable and experienced politician; he adheres strictly to his principles even when a good deal of principal is required to carry them out; he knows the needs of Missouri, one of the chiefest of which he believes is her need of him for Senator; he believes, too, in rewards and punishments and would make a ster ling business Senator.

In one respect Mr. Kerens resembles Missouri's greatest Senator. Benton wanted a railroad to con nect the East and West and reveled in thought over the glories which would follow its construc tion. Mr. Kerens wants a railroad in the West and dreams of the time when the road will, by free passes, somewhat simplify and reduce the cost of electing Senators. The committee on fireworks for the Elks' con vention might get some valuable suggestions from one G. Sutherland. THE FOUNTAINS OF ST PIERRE. An account of St. Pierre after the great cata clysm, says: "Amid all the desolation the foun tains continue to play." The houses were all de stroyed, every tree was blasted and half con sumed; the beautiful foliage was all gone; the bright-plumaged birds that had sung in the trees were all extinct; the dreadful place was utterly an nihilated and soundles, save the murmur of the fountains that continued to play. All their outer works had been smitten by the fiery gases and fouled by the ashes and scoria that the explo sions of the mountain had hurled upon the doomed city, but the fountains continued to play as when the happy children played around them and the birds sang their love-songs in the trees above them. Being fed from beneath the ground, the pipes that supplied them escaped the catastrophe that smote everything upon and above the earth's surface. It was as though they were saved that pity might shedier tears through them. The account reminds one of an old man that is sometimes seen on the streets of this city. He totters rather than walks, every trace of comliness has disappeared from him; his hands are gnarled I jg I "Look Out for the Little Things and you needn't worry about the big ones." That is the Burlington idea. Adherence to it has placed theBurlington in the front rank of American railroads absolutely with out a rival in point of good service. B The Chicago Special leaving Denver at 4 p. m., the St. Louis WA Special leaving at 3 p m and the Vestibuled Flyer leaving at 10 p. fjf m., are offered as good examples of the Burlington idea. jH Tickets at offices of Connecting Lines.
