County Auditor. which the rates fixed by the compan ies are in effect. The new rates make a considerable reduction, which is opposed by the railroads On the grounds that they are in a na ture confiscatory, in that they do not afford an adequate revenue for the transportation of this freight, and probably for the further reason that the railroads hesitate to admit the justice of the making and enforce ment of railroad rates by a commis sion or legislative body.- Lignite coal is a commodity that exists in a vast volume in the west ern part of the state, and that does not enter very largely into the traf fic of railroads, for the reason that the business has been little develop ed. With lower rates there is no question but the market for the coal could be enlarged, although it is doubtful if it will go much outside of the state, in its natural state. Lignite does not "keep" well when taken from the mine and exposed to air and sunlight, its tendency be ing to "slack" and crumble. In this condition it is not the best fuel, ex cept for furnaces where there is forc ed draft and plenty of stokers. Con sequently, the traffic in this commod ity is greatest during the fall months when the motive power and cars of railroads are taken up with wheat and east bound traffic, and in the winter, when the natural expense of hauling freight, because of snow and adverse weather conditions, is heavy. And it is probably true, also, that the railroads, from the traffic point of view, would sooner nave fuel as a west bound haul as a complement to the east bound traffic in wheat and grain. It returns their cars and en gines loaded instead of empty and is more desirable from the point of view of economy of operation and profit in traffic. The state supreme court takes the ground that the traffic is not con fiscatory, where it can be shown that, taking all commodities together, the railroads within this state make a reasonable return on their invest ment, and we take it there is no denial but the total of traffic in this state returns a fair profit to the railroads. The matter will, no doubt, be ably presented from both sides before the United States supreme court, although a decision will not be handed down for some months, in all likelihood. It has been several years since there has been a read justment of coal rates in this state, and with the improved conditions and the facilities of the roads for do ing business, it is only just that the rates on coal should come down along with reductions in other commodities that have been made from time to time. When the coal rate case is decided, whichever way the decision o\,m^Tu fuiT ^mpartia ujof the court a be it is not unlike- a L. II. OXG. February 11, 1910.

At any rate, it is a case that is of much interest and a decision that would enlarge the mining of lignite and the use of it would be of sub stantial advantage to the state.

The grossest injury which Dickens ever inflicted on fellow being was his too accurate portrait of an inno cent mau iu bis Squeers. That York shire schoolmasters were, as a rule, cruel and wicked enough it is true, but the particular schoolmaster who was recognized and who recognized him self as the original Squeers seems to have been an exception to the rule. It will be remembered that Dickens and his illustrator traveled together to the north of England for the pur pose of collecting material for "Nick leby" aud especially for the Dotue boys esplsode. At Great Bridge they visited a boarding school known as Bowes academy. The master. William Shaw, received the strangers with some hauteur and did not as much as withdraw his eyes from the operation •f peumaking during the interview. Phiz sketched him in the act Dick ens described the act. The personal pecularities of William Sbaw were recognized in Squeers.

REAL SPORT IN THOSE DAYS. Old Jimmy Chambers Tells About One Haul He Made When He Got More Than He Expected—The Willing Old Horse That Cracked Her Skin. "Talk about yer huntin' trips," said ole Jimmy Chambers. "Why, there ain't no huntin' nowadays no, not none 'tall—leastwise none worth inentionln*. "It was different when I wuz a young feller. Them wuz huntin' days! When ye went out to hunt ye got sumthln', I tell ye. An' most always ye got a dum sight more 'n ye expect ed. I remember onct down in ole Pennsylvania when I had a hunt as wuz a hunt. I had er ole muzzle loader rifle that could shoot some, I tell ye. An' I wuz no slouch at shoot In' in them days myself: I could shoot about as well as ther next feller. Well, I went down to ther river lookln' fer er deer. I seen one standin' right in front of er big tree. I pulled up ther ole muzzle loader an' let her go. Jest as I fired a big fish jumped out of ther water, an' my shot went plum through him. I seen by ther way he fell I'd plugged er hole in him. The deer Jest dropped where he stood—never stirred, jest fell stone dead. "I rushed out into ther river an* grabbed my fish 'fore it could float away. With ther fish under my arm I started fer ther deer. An' what d'ye suppose? S' help me, jest back of where that deer stood ther bullet bad knocked er hole in tbat tree as big as yer fist, an' out of that hole er regular stream of honey wuz flowin'! That good honey wuz goin' to waste dum fast, an' I hadn't nary er thing to stop it. Jest then er rabbit jump ed out of er hole I hadn't noticed, an' I grabbed him by ther hind legs Jest as he wuz leapin'. I wuz goin' to stuff him in ther hole when er flock of quail flew up on ther other side of ther tree. They wuz goin* straightaway, an' there wuz more 'n 10,000 of 'em. Ther ole muzzle loader wuzn't loaded, an' them quail wuz gettin* away fast. I wanted some of 'em bad, so I jest let go that ole rabbit right in ther mid dle of 'em, an' the way he kicked an' clawed as he wuz goin' through ther air wuz a caution. He landed right on top of ther whole bunch, an* when I got over there seventeen of 'em wuz dead on ther ground—yes, sir, jest seventeen of 'em! An' ther shock had killed ther rabbit too. He wuz all smashed up. I stuck bis head in ther hole to stop ther honey till I could go home fer sum barrels. "I bitched up tber ole gray mare to ther sled an' went back. I chopped that there ole tree down, an' there wuz honey enough to fill all my barrels. Well, I slung ther deer an' ther fish an" ther rabbit an' ther quail on ther sled an' started home. It wuz some load fer ther ole mure, an' I walked at her head, kinder coaxin' her along. 1 wuzn't payin' any attention to ther load, an', by gum, when we got up to ther house there wuz that there load way back in ther middle of ther river. Of course I knowed what wuz ther matter. That ole groundhog harness had got wet an' jest stretched. I wuz kind of hungry, so I jest throwed ther harness over a stump an' went into dinner. When I cum out again ther sun had dried ther harness an' ther load wuz just pullin' up to ther stump. That wuz some hunt. Yer don't get nothin' like that nowadays, I tell ye. Them wuz good old days! "An*, speakln' of ther ole gray mare, she was ther wlllin'est mare that ever wuz. She'd pull anything yer hitched her to. I tried her, an' she pulled ev erything. One day I sez to myself, 'By gum, I'll give yer er load yer can't pull,' an* I hitched her to er stone boat loaded with all ther bowlders in ther county. She got right down an' pulled an' pulled an' pulled, but ther load didn't budge. I heard er little crack, but for er minute I didn't suspicion anything, an' before I noticed that ther skin on her face had cracked it wuz too late. I yelled at her to stop, but she wuz so dum mad she kept right on pullin', an' s'help me, before I could stop' her she'd pulled herself clean out of her skin! I didn't want to lose that there mare, an' I got busy an' did er little skin graftin' fer myself. I bad some fresh sheep pelts,- an' I sewed them on as fast as I could sew. Well, sir, them pelts took root fine. They growed on that there ole mare jest like they'd always been there, an' thet next season I sheared jest 375 pounds of wool off'n her. She wuz er good ole mare, I tell ye. an' every year got 375 pounds of wool so long as she lived. Yes, sir it wus always jest 375 pounds.

SMASHEOJf THE 2 1 The Story of a Shipwreck In the English Channel. FIERCE FURY OF THE STORM. .Wind and Wave Battered the Ship Till Only a Shattered Hulk Re mained—A Battle Against the Ele ments That Endsd In Defeat. We had weathered the western is lands and entered latitudes where the prudent mariner shortens sail and keeps a wary eye on the barometer, for the seafarer may talk lightly of mountainous seas off the Horn, but not of a winter gale In the mouth of the English channel when the coast is strewn with wreckage from the Lizard to Beachy and his imagination, accus tomed to vast expanses of lonely sea, pictures all sorts of craft jostling one another in dangerous proximity. A favoring gale from the northwest, not more vicious than the ordinary north Atlantic gale, bad kept the ship lively all day and set all hands figur ing on pay day. It was not until the afternoon watch that the weather out look became really threatening. Moun tainous walls of green water swung out of the darkness and buffeted her aside as they passed. Fierce squalls smote her in rapid succession, envelop ing her in a smother of spray, heeling her uutil the yardarms dipped in the crests of the waves. At eight bells the wind lulled and hauled a point to the westward, then hurled Itself against the ship with ac cumulated fury. There was a sudden confusion of flying cordage, over whelming seas hammering upon the decks and the cannonade of canvas stripped from the spars and blown like thistledown to leeward. Relieved of her top hamper, she stag gered erect, dripping like a half tide rock and shaken with the shock of the seas pounding her sides. Halfway on the upward oscillation she poised, checked by the renewed onslaught of the gale as if by the impact of a mate rial obstacle. Rags of canvas stream ed from her empty yards. Every wire of her rigging twanged and stretched under the strain. The deck round the mainmast heav ed and was starred with white Assures running along its well oiled planks. The heavy steel spar dimpled on one side, then buckled and crashed over board in a tangle of wreckage. The ends of severed wire whipped the air, and twisted shrouds sawed to and fro along the ruined bulwarks and struck showers of sparks from the tor tured iron work. The hatch covers were stripped from their coverings, boats smashed to firewood and all the intricate superstructure of the vessel swept and broken. Shouted orders were blown back, inaudible to the men cowering under the break of the poop, and useless if audible. What seamanship could contrive was done. Men worked for their lives, find ing a foothold OH the sea swept deck, hacking the jagged ends of iron wire. But the day of cutting wreckage adrift is gone with wooden spars and hemp en cordage. Although the plates gaped and rivets started, the heavy spar held fast alongside, pounding against the iron hull us she rolled in that trough of the sea. A couple of spare spars were lashed together and launched with infinite danger through the gap in the broken bulwarks. But no improvised sea an chor could hold her to windward amid the tumult of such a sea. She was uo longer a ship, but a ruined fabric, crushed and sagging to leeward under the weight of the elements. Morning brought an abatement of the fury of the gale. Standing on the poop, surveying her shattered hulk, her skipper turned quietly to his mate and asked, "Is the port lifeboat sea worthy?" "Carpenter reports that it is, sir," re plied bis subordinate. The skipper stood for awhile in si lence, noting the sluggish life of the deck under his feet. "Suppose we've got to leave her," he said. "What d'ye think?" It is the sole occasion where the mas ter mariner will deign to consult and be advised by his inferior officer. "She can't float much longer, sir," replied1 the other sympathetically. It might be that in his time he, too, would require to seek similar advice. "Ah," said the skipper heavily, "and I saw her launched." He crossed over to the teak fife rail and laid his hand on it, fondling it affectionately. "All right, mister," he said at last. "We're right in the track of shipping. Pass the word along to put a«bag of biscuit aboard and fill the breakers with wa ter."—Pall Mall Gazette. Short and to the Point.
