"It costs me about $100 per month to support myself and family, which Includes my wife and one boy. The boy la 6 years old and he wears some few clothes out but still he la not as extravagant as people generally cred it beys with being," said a railroad roan today. "I could save more money than I am doing if it became necessary, since we lived on less than $45 up to a few years ago. I was then work ing In an ofllce and my salary was $45. We lived on it and even on, occasion paved a little, but when 1 rot u better place, we" determined to enjoy life as best we could; hence our increase in expenses. We don't throw away money but we always get our money's worth. We believe in enjoyment of life, though we do not care for many features of amusement which others claim is an absolute necessity to the true enjoy ment. We are of quiet disposition and generally spend our spare mo ments at home, though we often at tend theatres, take rides to the mountains when possible, and have a good time. We keep a horse and buggy in which all three of us can easily ride and our little trips do not cost very much. We do not own our home, but we will aome day. Averwee ExjxMifcca "Clothing tor myself averages about $'. per month. My wife scarce ly ever spends over $5 per month, as s'ii does her own dressmaking and don't car much for style, so she looks neat. The boy gets along with about $6 a month, which makes the total for clothes about $19 on an average the year round. "For rent, we pay $16 for a four room house, which includes water. The light costs us about $2 per month on the average. Fuel adds an other $1 per week or $4 per month to the account in the summer and about twice that in the winter, but as we also use ice in the summer, the average account Is about balanced at $8 per month for fuel and ice the year round. For FcmmI. "We spend an average of $32 per month for food, including groceries, meat. etc. That is the actual figure taken from a year's expense account book. Our grocery bills are not as heavy as many families of the itime size since we make our own pur chases, my wife utilizing the horse and buggy for marketing. It is much more satisfactory than attempting to purchase groceries from a man who takes your order, and you never see the goods until they are delivered. I think we get the best the market af fords by our plan. If there is any thing nice In the fruit or vegetable line, we buy It, unless the price Is too stet p. in w hich event, we wait until it becomes cheaper. Keeping a Horse. "Keeping a horse Is somewhat ex pensive, but tile enjoyment we de rive from our horse and buggy Is worth live times the. cost.

Tiresome Job. It Is also said that the new prison superintendent has found it tiresome work repairing the damage do"he by Arthur Trelford, the former superin tendent. Trelford had practically exhausted the supplies and funds on hand. Instead of there being $7,000 worth of coal on hand when he re tired, as Trelford stated. Mr. Littrell found only $2,100 worth of fuel at the prison. Kverything else in the way of assets wero about at the same par.
