Miss Catherine York scored the hit
of the evening with a Jumping Jack
i dance given by a number of girls.
The dance was cleverly and gracefully
given, and reflects credit both on the
girls and on their instructor.
Miss York then favored the com
pany with a humorous recitation, in
which were set forth the fortunes o£
three gentlemen who advertised for a
wife for one of their number.
The vocal solo by Miss Franklin

a hearty encore. She was accompan­

played several games, Hatch coming
out at the small end of the horn in

ever planned and executed by the loc-,

Evening" last Saturday at the clubi

royal good time-

Miss Hughes played a piano solo,

"What is said to be the largest elec^

not in the world, is the one placed on
top of Hotel I/aSallp, Chicago. The

The illumination is 1300 forty-watt

Sample Case: The following is part
of a telegram sent by the presidents!
of Chicago railways to the chairman,'
otf tfoe house committee on interstate
and foreign commerce, to the senate
committee on interstate commerce
and to E. E. Clark, chairman of the
interstate commerce commission, and
covers several of the points of pro
posed legislation: i
"The undersigned, being officers of
railways whose names appear in con
nection with our signatures note with
concern that, because of some recent
serious railway accidents, there are
being proposed in congress measures*
intended to require railways to imme
diately substitute steel passenger
train cars for their wooden cars and
to generally install block systems, or)
even automatic train stopping devices.
"As to steel cars a recent investiga
tion disclosed 90 per cent of all pas
senger train cars acquired by railways
in 1912 were of all steel or steel un-i

derframe construction and that ofi
those under construction January,
1913, no less than 97 per cent were all

Railways, without legislation, are or
dering all steel and steel underframe
cars faster than the manufacturers
can supply them and it is estimated!
that even if it were practicable now!
to replace all wooden cars with gteeX
cars, the cost of doing ao would bel
"A great many accidents, other tfhari
those in train accidents and trespass
ers are due, like them, not to deficien
cies of the structures or equipment of
railways, but to carelessness and
reckless conduct of individuals, as
clearly appears from the statistics oU
the interstate commerce commission-
There is no questioning the fact
that railroads are buying all-steel
passenger equipment as fast as the
cars can be made but in connection
with the above, attention is called to
the practice of making up trains withi
mixed equipment to the added peril ofi
passengers. In case of accident a
wooden coach placid between steel
cars is crushed like an egg shell and!
passengers exposed to great danger.
A correspondent writes of the
make-up on a recent day of train No.
15, Big Four, Cincinnati to Indianapo-:
lis, in this order: Smoker, wood la
dies coach, steel dining car, wood
Pullman parlor car, steel.
On the same road and route train1
No. 19 was made up as follows: Ex
press and baggage car, steel smok-i
ing car, wood ladies' car, steel threei
sleepers, steel. i,
It Is easy to picture what would*
have been the fate of those riding In
the wooden cars had anything hap-i
pened to those trains.
Pending the time when all-steel
cars are valuable (and may the day
not be far off) it is suggested to thei
railroads that trains be made up all
steel cars or all wood, that all pas
sengers may have an equal chance fori
their lives. i
In the state of Wisconsin a law will
soon go- into effect making this mix-:
ture of equipment in trains illegal.

The following poem, entitled The
Grand Old U. C. T. is from the pen of
"Sunny Jim" Somers, author and pub
lisher of Jim's Western Gems:
In every brotherhood of man
There is something good and grand,
And since I joined the U. C. T.,
I more fully understand
Man's duty in this good old world
Seems very plain to me
Since I became a member of
The Grand Old U. C. T.
The obligation fills the heart
With sincerity and love.
And true sympathy for all mankind,
And for the Father in heaven above.
You see a gleam in a ray of hope,
As you hear the Chaplain's plea,
When you take the obligation of
The Grand Old U. C. T.
So let us do our duty well
In this grand, noble cause
Do to others as we'd have them do,
Without favor, fear or pause
The picture of mother and orphan
In my prayers and dreams I see,
Since I became a member of
The Grand Old U. C. T.
Guide and advise the innocent,
For In youth we all are blind,
Comfort and cheer the aged poor,
And respect all women kind.
Live an upright, honest life.
And your reward will be
A place up there for those who care
And live up to the U. C. T.
Knights of the Grip, your duty is
And you must blaze the way
For other men whom you must meet
As you journey night and day.
Let each man be a guiding star
In Unity, Temperance and Charity,
And the Good Lord will you reward
Through the Grand Old U. C. T.
To every vow let us be true,
And when we are called away,
Knights of the Grip, on our last trip,
We will have no fare to pay.
We will need no sample case up there,
We will get our mileage free,
If you are in good standing
In the Grand Old U. C. T.

The janitor's letter arrived on the
last day of the campaign, when the
fund was nearly $250,000 short. The
mittete was terribly discouraged by the
outlook. Some of its members refused
to go out again. Others were willing,
but felt that the case was hopeless.
They had been everywhere that a dol
lar might ba gotten. They saw noth
ing but refusals before thorn.
At this point the janitor's letter hap
pened to be real, and immediately the
whole company took on fresh enthusi
asm- Me»i and women jumped to their
feet and declared that they would start
out again and that they would complete
the fund In honor of that janitor, if
for no other reason. Before, the next
