All rights reserved by Meigs & Co. THREE DAYS AND A HALF TOJTIIE COAST What the Befen Cot Off on the Santa Fe Will dt for Travel to California, According to William Allen "White "the old order changeth." This Is cer "tainry true of railroads, especially in Xh West. In the early days the first harbinger of this beneficent Institution was the hustling, smooth tongued 'right-of-way man. After him came the road itself. The promoters always had a keen scent for bonds and as a result their creation sometimes wan dered aimlessly about without appar ent; ndt real. There was a very de finite purpose in this twisting and turning. -It was to reach certain lo calities and gobble the bonds that the right-of-way man, if he did his duty, -had arranged for. The voting of bonds was a favorite amusement among the early pioneers. Each community had unlimited faith In its own eectlon. Fortunately in most cases this faith has been justi fied. The payment of these bonds was a. matter that did not concern them. That was left to future generations. The enthusiastic voter would have moved on or been called to a better land by that time. And so railroad building In the early days frequently offered new point to the old adage that the longest way round is the shortest way. home. After a few necessary preliminaries In the way of receiverships and re organizations, a very original discovery was made. This was that better time could be made and larger loads hauled ott a straight road than on a crooked. Immediately began a great straighten ing of curves. Then' another discovery. This time it was that while local business largely cares for iteelf. it requires a m'ghty .hustling to secure and hold long dis . tance competitive traffic. The big systems that had. been pok ing their noses farther and farther west began casting about for some means of keeping, each to itself, a Brood share of the constantly Increas ing California traffic. After the traffic is secured fast time Is necessarv to hold it. Fast time Is expensive, espec ially over mountain grades, and roads that had such grades to contend with ' began to seek for some solution of the difficulty. The officials of the Santa Fe System Seem to have solved it to their satis faction by the building of the Belen Cut-off. This Is a line from Clovis, on their Pecos Valley lines, to Belen, N. a point on the main line near Albuquerque. The saving in distance Is not great, but dodging the tremend ous grades of the Raton and Gloriefia ranges of the Rockies means a great saving, in time and operating expenses. Probably the main line through Colo rado and New Mexico will always be popular with the tourist travel. It is a fascinating trip over the romantic Did Santa Fe trail through the heart of a country famous from the days of Coronado to Kit Carson, but the new line will offer that all important re quirement of these later days a sav ing In time. It took the Aiu-Saxons about two and a half Centuries to march from Plymouth Rock to the sunset sea. We their descendants, do it now in about four days. With the opening of the Beler; cut-off the time will probably be reduced to about three and a half days. Verily, the old order changeth. Are week end parties to California to be the thing in the near future? DR. HILL LISTENED TO BY ATTENTIVE CONGREGATIONS Dr. J. Wesley Hill, pastor of the pkletTopolitan Temple of New York and fejwrted to be one of the leading preachers of the Methodist faith in this country, spoke at both the mora jnflr and evening services of the Wash Intrton Park M. E. church yesterday. A mr-re forcible, elocruent and inter fering preacher had never before been peard at the churoh nd at both ser rlcfs the edifice was filled to its ca pacity. His morning theme was "Christ's Picture of Heaven", and in the even big "The Hidden Sorrows of Life." Ha jptgressed from his chosen topic, how ever, and confined his evening sermon to the quotation from the Corinthians, Tor now we see through a, glass, flaxkiy: but then face to face; now 1 know In part, but then shall I know even as also I a,m known." Dr. Hill Is closely associated- with President Faft, having made an address recently k.t Chicago for the President, and the bitter reciprocated by coming to the Metropolitasa Temple and delivering a talk.

Mr. Hartigan, It will be remembered was critically ill, suffering from typhoid fever, and for some weeks, his life was despaired of. Mr. C. B. Embody, for more than a quarter of a century with L. F. Curtis, druggist, has taken a position with the West End plant of Crane Bros. He is succeeded by Herbert Fuller, who will assist Mr. Fred Curtis in the manage ment of the store at the old stand corner Main and Elm streets. The oiled roads to be tried as an experiment here, are sure to be a boon to those riding in any vehicle. Those who have enjoyed traveling about the suburbs of Boston, are loud In their praise of the clean, dustless condition of the streets so oiled. The public parks and all driveways leading out of the city for miles. In every direction are so treated, and one can thoroughly enjoy the ever-changing beautiful views, without having to swallow the proverbial "peck of dirt," we are told to expect. By all means let us have oiled roads, where possible, rather thin sprinkling, which oftentimes only makes muddy streets in the early morning, and by noon, thick layers of dust to be whirled to the four corners of the earth, by every wind that blows, to the discomfort of man and beast.

Fear of an event ual clash between England and Ger many took tangible form today in an increase of Lloyd's insurance rates against such a war from eight to ten per cent. The new insurance that Llcyds is writing Is against a war be fore March 21, 1910. The increase in insurance rates and general uneasiness are attributed di rectly to Germany's activity in naval construction.

The sub ject of the opening evening's sermon was "The Warfare of the Christian Knigiht," Rev. Father P. H. McLean, superior of the band, using for his text, "What shall it profit a. man if he gains the whole world and lose his own soul." Following this most' elo quent lecture. Rev. Father J. F.
