A Hide on the Fast Mail.
It is significant that the one train
which makes tho Chicago-St. Paul
run in ten hours, carries no passen
To ride on it is a privilege ac
quired by few. Yet a journey on
this train, which carrips none but
government mail clerks and its
crew, is an experience, especially if
the journey be made on the "fire
man's side" of the huge locomotive
which pulls it. It is a relevation of
what fast passenger service means
and a liberal education in apprecia
tion of the cool norve and absoluto
compmtency of the lnen who run
fast trains.
Tho fast mail over tho Chicago,
Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway
leaves Chicago every night of the
year with from twenty to fifty tons
of mail aboard and readies St. Paul
every morning with its burden of
letters and packages in time for
transfer to other trains to the Pacific
coast to connect with the mail boats,
north into the Dominion, east and
west into adjoining states and radi
ating over a dozen lines of railway
into every nook and cranny of the
If one asks why the fast mail
carries no passengers he is answer
ed that there are other trains which
do that work. Another reason is
appearant after a journey on the
head end" with the two cinder
marked and grease-smudged gods
of the machine that pulls it.
Ten-hour servico means speed.
On a glorious night not long ago
tho fast mail pulled out of Milwau
kee on time, swinging along at an
easy gate through the maze of green
white and red switchlights until the
last tall semaphore arm signaled
"all clear," then Engineer Sullivan's
long right arm shot forward through
the dark suddenly, the hoarse syn
copation of the exhaust changed
suddenly to along wailing roar, and
the tremendous locomotive seemed
to limber up in every joint as sho
swung forward into the night.
'He trun her in compound." the
fireman, Woodland, explained. His
father in his early life had appren
ticed him to a jeweler. He had a
back like an ox and an arm like an
oak tree.
Mile posts began to fade in regu
lar succession and telegraph poles
flew by so fast it was hardly possi
ble to count. The track ahead took
on an uncanny grayish haze, but
the speed constantly increased.
The big locomotive slowed down
for nothing. She took sharp curves
like a race horse and lunged into
the long tangents like a signed cat.
Engineer Sullivan didn't talk much.
Ho was pretty busy watching tho
track. When he dill talk it was to
the point.
"Forty-five miles out of Milwau
kee, including the trip through the
yards and suburbs, where wo had to
slow down, in forty-six minutes," he
He dropped to the ground and
oiled up almost on the run. Two
minutes elapsed, the big machine
was ready to go again, but the con
ductor appeared out of the gloom
and remarked that a journal on a
mail car had run hot.
Hot Journals are not sorious in
themselves, but six minutes clipped
from the schedule of a train which
must run while in motion at a rate
of slightly more than 55 miles an
hour for 403 miles, is a very impor
tant matter. Engineer Sullivan
swore softly and drowned his
wrath in copious applications of
more oil to the big engin's stuffing
boxes. Then he mounted the tower
ing cab again and tho raco was on
for the second time.
Woodland grinned.
"YVe'll run like a pup with a tin
can tied to his tail now." he confid
We did. Mile posts and tele
graph poles became one long proces
sion, with scarcely preceptiblo dis
tance between them. Tho air rush

trailing along behind, rocked and
swung on their springs liko so many
drunken men. The pace was tre

The Mississippi Exhibit at Our Fair.
From tho Jackson, Mls»., Dally Clarion-Leader.
Mr. M. E. Wainwright, a wide
awake real estate man of this city,
has on foot a scheme by which fie
hopes to be able to induce a large
number of western settlers to come
south and locate in the immediate
vicinity of Jackson. He is now mak
ing a collection of all the trucking
products raised in this neighborhood
this season, and is going to send
these exhibits to the fair at Man
chester, Iowa, next week. Several
of the truck fanners and planters in
the western suburbs of the city are
helping Mr. Wainwright collect the
products and especially Mr. R. O.
Jones, a brother to Mr. Kent Jones,
who made a net profit this season of
over forty-five hundred dollars on
only fifty-six acres of land, has taken
great interest in the movement and
has furnished a number of fine sam
The following articles are already
in the possession of Mr. Wainwright
and ready for shipment: Pumpkin,
kershaw, broomstraw, sunflower
seed, cotton stalks full of balls ready
to open, corn stalks with six and
seven cars full of matured grain.
This is only a beginning and before
they are sent to the fair there will
be added watermelons, peas, cucum
bers, squash, cabbage, tomatoes and
every other article raised within a
few miles of Jackson this year. It
is a splendid collection and shows
tho wonderful resources of the soil
in this section of Mississippi.
The Illinois Central Railroad lias
agreed to carry this truck free of
charge owing to the fact that they
are also interested in the scheme to
bring more people to settle in the
vicinity of this city. Assistant Gen
eral Passenger Agent Merry of the
road has talked with Mr. Wain
wright about the matter and is
heartily in favor of it and has
promised his services in the effort to
make it a success.
When the products arrive in Man
chester they will be placed on ex
hibition at the fair by Messrs. Col
linge & Dunham of that city who are
connected with Mr. Wainwriglit's
work. A large bundle of dodgers
giving the experience of Mr. Kent
Jones on his truck farm this year
will also be sent to the fair and dis
