The Missouri Pacific-Iron Mountain
has placed an order with the Baldwin
Locomotive Works of Philadelphia
for twenty-five huge locomotives,
They will be of the Mikado type and
will be used in freight service. In
evjsry detail these engines wfil repre
sent the latest effort in locomotive
construction. The light weight of the
engine and tender will be 311,900
pounds, and when in working condi
tion and ready for service the total
weight will run close to 400,000 pounds
The weight on the drivers will be
209,000 pounds and the locomotives
will have a tractive force of 60,160
pounds'. The specifications call for
cylinders 27 inches by 30 inches, and
the boiler pressure requirement is 170
pounds to the square inch. The total
length of the engines will be 78 feet
4j inches, and they will measure 16

Last Wednesday the sheriff of
Butler County brought a negro prison
er here and consigned him to the care
of Sheriff Blue for safekeeping. The
negro called himself Sam Green but
the authorities said his real name
is Otis Shafer. He had been arrested
in the city of Poplar Bluff Monday
night, charged with having assaulted
and outraged a white .woman on the
evening of that day. The lady, about
fifty-six years old, was in her home
alone when a negro came in, locked
the door behind him, drew a revolver
and threatened her with instant death
if she made an outcry. He then ao
complished his awful deed. As he was
leaving the premises the victim
sons, who had been out hunting, were
approaching at a little distance. Hear
ing their mother's cries and seeing the
negro funning, they fired at him, but
the guns being loaded with bird-shot
he escaped without hurt. The officials
were notified and a thorough search
for the criminal was begun. During
the night Shafer or "Green" was
taken Into custody, and placed in jail,
Next morning the woman positively
Identified him, out of a number of
negro prisoners. Threats of lynching
caused the authorities to remove him
to the Iron County jail. He was taken
back to Poplar Bluff Monday to ap
pear for trial this week before the
circuit conrt now in session. He
denies being guilty.
I last week gave an account of the
deplorable accident whloh resulted in
the death of one of Wayne county
most prominent citizens. I take the
following from the Piedmont Banner
"Mr. Haynle's death shocked the en
tire county. He was one of the lead
ing business men and prominent cltl
zens of this seotion, a warm-nearte
friend, a loyal citizen, and a man
whom prosperty did not alterln his
relations to other men. Mr. ylaynie
bad sold his farm at Wllllamsvllle and
it Is repored that all the papers were
duly signed before his death. His
wealth Is estimated at from (60,000 to

about eighty partook of the good
things which loaded the tables. A
little dancing, some musio and a
good deal of conversation diversfled
the passing hours twixt 8 and 12. The
event of the evening, however, was
the presentation of a Masonic Charm
set with diamonds to Hon. Wm. R.
Edgar. With a few well choBen and
appropriate sentences, Mr. Mann
Ringo, on behalf of the brethren,
tendered him this mark of esteem and
acknowledgement of the untiring
zeal which has for more than thirty
years characterized tne recipient's
Masonic life. And never was token
of regard better deserved. For once
Mr. Edgar's ready speech deserted
him, for this was a real "surprise,"
and the feeling that burdened his
reply gave not fluency of expression,

Mrs. Isabel Moser died this morning
at 5:50 o'clock at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. John Tessier, 1401 Park avenue,
following an illness that she contract
ed during the holidays. Mrs. Moser
was engaged as matron for the chil
dren at the Odd Fellows home at York
when the was taken ill following the
Christmas exercises at the home and
was brought to Fremont for treat
ment. For the last week her condi
tion grew gradually worse and she
failed to rally. A severe cold which
developed into pneumonia was the
cause of her death.
Mrs. Moser had been acting as ma
tron at the home since last August
and had been instrumental in in
augurating a number of changes of
the plans for the handling of the chil
dren, which had met with the hearty
approval of the officers and patrons
of the institution. The organization
of a boys' reading club and fitting a
room to be used by the lads for their
meetings was the direct result of her
efforts. She took a deep interest in
everything pertaining to the welfare
of the children that would tend to
make them better boys and girls. She
was a great favorite with the young
people who loved her for her mother
Always taking the stand for the
good and noble she was a foe to the
drink evil and used her time ana
energv in teaching children the folly
of indulging in strong drinK in any
form. She was an ardent worker in
theW. C. T. U., where she acted as
state organizer for a period last year.
She was evangelistic superintendent
of the local W. O. T. U. Mrs. Moser
never failed to attend a meeting and
take an active part in the work when
her health would permit.
Mrs. MOBer, who was Miss Mary
Isabel Bishop, was born at Yellow
Springs, O., June 6, 1850. At Ironton,
Mo.. February 28, 1870, she was mar
ried to J. Lewis Moser, a veteran of
the Civil War. Mr. Moser died March
29, 1874, suffering from an illness con
tracted in the campaign; Mrs. John
Tessier of Fremont, tbe only surviv
ing child. A sister, Mrs. Anna Smith,
resides at St. Louis, and a brother,
J. N. Bishop, at Ironton, Mo.
Short funeral services were held at
the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Tessier
Friday forenoon at 10:30 o'clock. The
body was shipped to Ironton for
The remains were received here
Saturday and the funeral services
were held at the Presbyterian church
that day at 1 o'clock, conducted by
Dr. James R. A. Vauehan. A number
of her old friends followed her re
mains to Masonio Cemetery, where
they were laid to rest by the side of
her late husdand. The many beautiful
floral offerings from loving friends
covered her grave. We of the older
generation bear testimony to her
worth and extend sincere sympathy
to her kindred in their bereavement.
