Once or twice, to be sure, we had had, for a brief period in each instance, a minister alil to ourselves. The first one was a brand ,oew, very zealous, weak-eyed, scholarly, studious, and shy young man, with a Bos tonese method of handling the king's Eng lish. But this one was not happy. He might have been a star of the first magni tude at a ladies' Browningolub,but at H- he was as much out of place as the pro; verbial eat in a strange garret. He seemed to care little for the society of his fel low-beings, at least those in H- . The boys tried to make him feel at home, and every once in a while some one would ask him to drink, but he 'never did. So it came to pass that hie life became burdensome, because the boys called him "Sis," and paid about as muoh attention to him as if hlie had, been a tailor's dummy. But when Hill Tobias, the big, kindly wit of the camp, on hearing the reverend cough one day, said: "bonny, ye've got th' croup, an' ef I wuz you I'd ,go right back ter my folks," it settled the "Rev. SiS," and the next day he took the stage back to civilization. The other one was not with us even as long as "Sis." He came a month after "Sic" left, and stayed about three weeks. He was a big, overfed, canting sort of a chap, and talked "shop" too much out of business hours. One morning something broke about the engine at the Highland mine, and Wallace, the manager, used onues words right in the presence of the Rev. 'Obadiah Sweet, who then and there began -just began-a long discourse on swearing, by way of reproof. I only heard one side of the story, and that was Wallace's version. It seems that he took the Rev. Sweet by the shoulders, abpsed him roundly as a wolf in hldp.1 sttiire, and smotehim with more or less violence with the toe of his miner's boot. And the Rev. Sweet walked ten miles down to Redwood, to wait for the stage. One day, however, a man, an evangelist, came and stayed a week, and in H-- so ciety were wrought treat changes. most no table of which was the conversion of Brick Yates, one of the toughest, most profane, godless men in H- . It was the fourth or nfth night of the evangelist's stay. He bad exhorted as only a true man, with his heart in his work, can, and finally asked all those who wanted to become Christians to come forward and take a front seat. There was a moment's silence. Then arose Brick Yates, who had at first done all he could to hinder the work, and his great voice growled: "Damme. I'll jest go ye!" And he went up, followed by a dozen "bad" ones. The next night a contingent from Red. wood came up and invaded the sanctuary. They were all tough,. but behaved pretty well until they diso6vered that they were getting very dry. Then, in the most ear nest part of the Rev. Haywood's discourse, they rose and started to march over to Hiles'. Mr. Haywood stopped speaking and looked at them in mute appeal, but Brick was equal to the emergency. As the Redwood crowd came clumping to the door he rode, and in a hoarse whisper, heard by every one, exclaimed: - "Here! Whatinell d'you fellers mean by disturbin' these her e peroedin's? Go back an' set down till th' rev'ren' gits through. Plenty time ter drink. Hear me?" They heard, and went back to their seats, and every one of them put $5 in the hat. Henceforth, Brick was H-'s sole spirit ual physician. He was also doctor, nures and general consoler of all the rough popu antion of the camp. At the start, though he did not stop taking an occasional duink, he quit gambling and getting drunk, and gradually broke himself of using strqug cusswords, though a few of the milder ones he never did get rid of. At firet a few of the unconverted ones made fun of him, but he always took it good-naturedly, and they, seeing he was in earnelt, soon let him alone. When a chap called "Charley Ross," in some unaccountable way, held four kings in a little game wherein another king was held by Buckl Penrose, and lingered for five or six days afterward with a. 44-bullet in side of him, Brick Yates was the one who picked him up, carried him home, anti nhrsed him tenderly till he died, and Brick it was who performed the last rites, preach ing a brief but forcible homily on the ad vantages of strict honesty. When little Sherburne, assayer at the Highland, was sick with mountain fever it was Brick who stopped work and stayed by his bedside for three weeks and who took the lad's body to Leadville and shipped it home. And when George Hawley, who had been Brick's enemy for years. hovered be tween life and death for ten days as the re sult of an accident at the Columbia shaft house, it was Yates who nnused him and brought him back from the jawsof death, a bit crippled, but strong enough to work and grateful almost to worship. But the English company operating the Highland mine shipped in, one day, a lot of Cornish miners-rough, brutish, ignorant fellows, far different from the splendid boys whom the crazy freaks of the manager who succeeded Wallace had forced to quit work. From this time on Brick's work was hard, but be never faltered. . All the old residents were his staunch friends; but with these loutish Cornishmen be could estab lish no peace, though he did all for them I at he would have done for the others. hey adno ratitude, no finer feelings, a nd oh Bick used every effort to estab lish friendly relations with them it was in vein. One Saturday night there was trouble at the Highland, bnd Peveril, t1ei new mana ger, was killed .by the men and his body thrown into a ully. Ty.he word passed into i the camp and Hrick heard. Hehad known I and disliked Peveril, as had every one else in the camp, but his duty Way lear. He saddled his broneo and tode upeand got the eat[ day we gathere 'ddown aLt the little cemetelv to see l'everll eonsigted to esath. Brick had begaun to red a chapter of the good book over the gIrave. when there was a commotion, and he lo6kLd uD to ias what was the matter, Four or five drunken Cor nishmen, the worst characters at the His - land, camse through the crowd, headed b 'Evan Evans, the leader of the last night uiot.

St. Paul & Kansas City was the fist railroad in the country to issue special transportation advertising for the World's fair aitChicago. That is enterprise and an illustration of the sort of manage ment that within a few vears has trans formed the Chicago, St. Paul & Kannsas OCity from a short and unimportant line, with little to encourage its continuance, so one of the most prominent and most popu lar lines in the northwest. With its termi nals in Chicago, Kansas City and St. Paul, it unites the east, the northwest and the southwest. The territory it embraces is the garden spot of America. In it dwell 8,000,000 people whom this great road lo commodates. The Lreat states of Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri and Kansas are The general headquarters of the road is at lit. Paul, while the freight and pas senger departments direct their business from Chicago. In the latter city the com pany's trains arrive a aand depart f'om the Grand Central passenger station, com pleted at the belininng of the present year, and acknowledged to he without a peer in this country. The three main lines of the road unite at Oelwein, in Northeastern Iowa. Aside from these are several short branahes, all of importance, the longest being from Sumner to Hampton, Iowa. The bItter state is divided nearly in halves by the road, which crosses its very finest portion. The mileage in Missouri, fansas and Minnusota is comparatively small, but in Illionots again increases, the northern and most populous part of the Prairie state rzeerberating to the thunder of its trains. Much of the success of the road is due to the ability and energy of a ralway man well known to many in Rochester, W. tR. Busenbark, the traffic manager of the road. In his intercourse withthhe patrons of the road he has won thousands of friends for himself and his company. The equipment of the Chicago, St. Paul & Kansan City is unecelled by that of any road in the country. Its vestibuled com partment sleeping cars are modelsof lux ury, comfort and convenience. No other. line west of Chicago runs compartment sleeping cars. The dining car service is folly up to the requirements of the most fastidions and luxury-loving of modern travelers. In short the Chicago. St. Paul & Kansas City is the best line between Chi cago and bt. Paul, Minneapolis and the northwest, between Chicago and the prin oipal points in Iowa, between Chicago and thle southawest. Persons going from east ern points to Chicago and beyond will do well to hear these facts in mind.--Roohes ter, N. Y., Democrat and Chronicle, Oct. 2), 1891.
