L IKO RAILROAD MEN AND PUS. ' L1C, ROUTED BY TROOPER ? IN MINGO COUNTY. ISI ARRESTS ARE MADE Particularly valuable service has Imq renderail by the West Virginia Jttafce Police in putting an end to the nt|u of terror caused by armed ruf Vrw at various points along the Nor Mk ft Western railroads in Mingo ?Ad adjoining counties. Until the State took hold of the situation and sent state police into the unruly districts, the livos of the traveling public and train crews were Jeopardized by gangs of ruffians who %ronld shoot at trainmen as trains passed, shatter signal lights, shoot Che bells off locomotives and lanterns from switchmen's hands. Desiring a ride, they would climb on board, intimidate the crow with re volvers and stop the train when they reached their destination by angle cocking a car, which means to discon nect the air-brake. Reports were re ceived from the railroad company of locomotives being uncoupled from the remainder of the train, the engineer ?nd firemen forced from the cab at gun point and the engine in the hands ?f the outlaws, run up and down the track with bell jingling and whistle tooting loudly. Conditions reached a climax when a 16-car freight train was ditched. The state was asked to aid and state police were stationed at points along the line and every train was searched. Troopers also rode the locomotives with trainmen throughout particularly dangerous sect Ions. Over 1J>U arrests were made in tour months. The State police made a thorough ! clean-up but not without considerable ! shooting. They "were often tired upon ! and more than one trooper braved death 'in the course of duty. The most troublesome spot on the entire system was at Breeding, Mingo connty. Conditions became so bad at this point that trainmen were resign ing their jobs rather than make a run through that place. The State Police were obliged to use stern tactics and a considerable amount of buck-shot was necessary before the Breeding ! gang was pat out of business. Many were jailed. Others went to | hospitals. John Marcuiu, leader of this gang was killed in a gun-flghv .with :a State troope*. Breeding is to day ono of the most peaceful spots on the N. fc W. line. Complaint was recently received at temporary State Police headquarters at Borderland, Mingo county on the main line of the Norfolk & Western that tresspassers on long freight traina were becoming so bold as to close blocks, cut signal wires and angle cock trains. The practice was growing general and was interfering with traffic. | Sergeant Brown and a detail of State Police was sent to Naugatuck to search all trains. Thoy captured as high as 10 men riding a single train. How well Sergeant Brown and his men followed instructions is attested by 40 arrests in March. All were con vieted in Williamson police court. One State Trooper, Private R. It. Manown was lired upon by Harry Car ton, no home or occupation. Carlon, who was in a box-car tired three times at the officer who ordered him to come out. Manown tired into the car and Carton jumped out and started for Kentucky. Manawn pursued him to the edge of Tug ri\*er whece Carton surrendered. He was sent to jail for six months.

Miss Auatha Browne wns professor ??f economics at L<edhnui seminary, which, as most people know, veeeives ??u!y selected iii rl pupils from among the first fami lies of the South. Prof. Sampson Boy let t instructed the same select young ladies In Ilo itiau history. The young ladies of Led hatn seminary might have been seeu with their brads very elose together ono evening alter the professor had concluded Ids Iceture. He hn.d been expounding "The Marriage Customs of the Sainnltes." "Mustu't it have been dreadful In those days!" said Miss Phllippa Clark, rending from ber note-book. "Just think I Among the Sainnlte ladles It was not an uncommon thing to take the Initiative in the proposal of a mat rimonial alliance. When geutle glances and hints failed to accomplish their purpose the Somulte woman did not hesitate to address herself openly to the backward suitor." "Dreadful?" exclaimed Miss Mary Campbell, one of the most select of the young ladies. "Why, it was grand !" Professor Ho.vlett appeared unusual ly preoccupied on the second day aft erward. Kr ? one moment, ladies.'' he began as the class waited its dismissal. "Can anyone tell me whether there Is a? or ? any attache of this institution whose Initials are A. B "Miss Agatlin Browne, professor of economics," chanted the class. And the professor, after staring speechless ly at them for an instant, suddenly bolted through the door. At that iustant Miss Browne was saying : "A most Insulting thing ha* hap pened to me, ;:lr!s. 1 hesitate to men tion it, and should not, did I not fear it Is some unworthy member of this seminary. 1 have received an anony mous letter containing ? In short, a proposal of marriage." "Oh, no, Miss Browne!" exclaimed the class In horror. "Ladies, your attitude does you credit." said the profe?*sor of econo mics. "Kr ? by the way, is there any person connected with this seminary whose Initials are S. B.V" "Prof. Sampson Bovlett." shoutod the class in economics in unison. Then an extruordlnacry thing hap pened. Behind "Miss Browne's large spectacles a reddiah hue, arising in the neighborhood of either ear. spread and expanded until it completely cov ered her face. "Dear me. this is very painful!" murmured Miss Browne. "The class is dismissed." The class, released from its, duties, ??ushed to the windows and looked out upon the campus. It saw Miss Iirowne emerge from the portals of the fa mous institution of learning with a hurried and yet. furtive step, if such a . term could he applied 10 any quality or attribute of -Miss Iirowne. With her umbrella folded in her hand, the professor of economics picked her way down the gravelly walk toward the en trance. Then the class and Miss Browne simultaneously perceived a .second figure, a bent, irresolute, mid dle-aged figure approaching the same portals from the classroom in Human history. Ami then occurred a peculiar phe nomenon such as had never been known to happen during the memory of the class. For Miss Browne, instead of continuing upon her resolute way toward the Kate, mmle a short cut across tin* s??ggy grass ? Miss Browne, whose stato of health was always known to bo exactly commensurate with the hygienic condition of her overshoes. Ami, as an immovable body encoun ters an irresistible force, so Miss . Agatha Browne; encountered Professor ! Boy let t beside the portals of the Led j ham Seminary for Young Ladies. The ] professor saw her, straightened him self. and spoke. ?'10r ? nuiong the Samnites there ex isted a custom"? he began. "I have always told my class." Miss Browne remarked at the same mo ment, "that the custom which re strains the female half of the com- J inunity ? " "Which I womd Ih* the last to con demn ? " "From taking the first step ?
