HANCOCK CREEK Farmer's Little Son Makes an Interesting Discovery Near Hawesville Will Not Be Disturbed. Splendid Farm For Sale ! Hawesville, Ky., May 30. The beaver an animal that was supposed to have lie come extinct many years ago in this sec tion of the country, has suddenly made its appearance in Hancock county by damming up Illackford creek, a stream of considerable size. Where they came from is a mystery, as one lias not been seen in this section of the country in the last fifty years Hut for the curiosity of a ten-year-old boy their discovery might not have been made for years, Joe Wiles, a merchant and farmer of the Chambers neighborhood, rented from his brother in-law, Ira Chambers, a farm in Blackford bottoms, which is seven miles south of Hawesville. Mr. Wiles dectdeg to put the bottom land in corn and accordingly set to work to plow up the field With him went his ten-year-old boy, who, hearing the roaring made by the water running over something, determined to investi gate. Quietly slipping through the dense undergrowth, he made his -way to the creek bank, thence up the creek a few hundred feet to' the dam. Hurrying back to his father, he told an exciting story of what he had seen, claiming to his father that someone had put a dam in the creek. Mr. Wiles decided to see what the bov had found, when to his as tonishment he discovered a perfect dam across the creek five or six feet high and about forty feet long. Willows had been cut along the creek by these industrious little fellows, woven together and plastered with mud in such a manner as to make the dam water tight. A mason could not have done a better job with a trowel. The work is all new work, which shows they have not been here any great length of time. A drainage district has recently been established in this bottom, but, as the new ditch will not go near the old creek at this place, the little beavers will not be disturbed, but will be watched with much interest.

Allen In Tampa Tribune, if one could imagine himself about two centuries ago, taking n trip over this country in a living machine, at a high altitude, with u ptirof strong field glasses, getting n uanorbmic view of such a broad waste of country inhabi ted bv naked vagus; and again Imag ine himself at the present time taking the same trip, what n great contrast there would be. Instead of waste coun try and naked savages, he would few modern cities, immense factories ir. nu merous varieties, plantations In varjiog sizes dotted with homes; by looking a little closer he can observe a network of the arteries of commerce where trains are carrying their loads of hu man freight as well as commodities and other essentials of modern living. Iiefore we deal with the men that are directly connected with the running of the trains, we wish to state that tilt re are many important positions to be filled, from the president of the road on down, which, under modern systems of railroading, are indispensable to the successful operation ol a railroad. Re member that there are skilled men at all times on the alert to see that the rolling stock, as well as the track, is in propjr condition to perform their du ties We wish to show the responsibility of every man that is directly connected with the operating of a train when it is sent out on the road. Hirst, we take the dispatcher, who gives orders for the train to run, and who has to be on the alert at all times as to its movements, either bv telegraph or telephone, and may be both. He has to guard it from both front and rear-end collisions by keeping in touch with all the operators along the line, so that he may know not only the movements of one particular train, but all the trains on that line. We want to call the attention to great care mat he takes in giving the exact time and place of meeting of two trains in his orders, and the operators along the line have to exercise just as great care in receiving these orders just as they are sent, and deliver them to the conductor promptly on the arrival of his train, who in turn delivers a copy to the engineer before proceeding. Whan the conductor calls 'all aboard' he then takes on himself not only the duties ot seeing that each parsenger reaches his destination on time, but also the responsibility of giving the passenger proper protection against In- No. 6. TIIKRK nro n great many women who sim ply cannot resist a "bargain." They will buy things they have no earthly use for simply because they arc cheap. The attics of their homes are filled with pretty gewgaws bought from time to time at "ridic ulously" low prices, but which cannot bo utilized in any way. AND, ON THE OTHER HAND, THERE ARE A GREAT MANY PEOPLE WHO FOREGO MANY THINGS ACTUALLY NECESSARY TO COMFORT AND HEALTH OUT OF A MISTAKEN IDEA OF ECONOMY. TRUE ECONOMY IS MORE A MATTER OF SPENDING MONEY WISELY THAN NOT SPENDING IT AT ALL. I strive to get the most out of every dollar I spend, and I find the advertisements of our various stores a wonderful help. I study the ads. carefully and take prompt advantage of any opportunity to save money on such things as I need. The wide awake merchant is able to offer his customers from time to time many worthy articles at a legitimate reduction in price. Manu facturers often find themselves in distress and arc glad to sell their stock at a loss to some merchant who can pay spot cash. Then, again, it quite frequently happens that a manufacturer will find himself with a large stock on hand at the end of his season when he should have clean shelves. To make it worth while for some retailer to take the entire stock off his hands ho offers it nt a very low price. Merchants usually pass on to their customers the pavings they thus make. MY WORD OF ADVICE IS: DON'T BUY ANYTHING YOU DON'T NEED, NO MATTER HOW CHEAP IT IS, AND IF YOU CAN BUY SOMETHING YOU REALLY NEED AT A 8AVING DON'T HESITATE TO BUY ENOUGH TO LAST YOU FOR A LONG TIME.

We must not overlook the flagman's part, lor when the train is hindered on ac count of engine failute or other causes, the flagman at once drops back two or three hundred yards to the rear of the train to protect It from a rear-end col lission, while there is a man sent for ward to protect it in front. Next we take the engineer, who has been classed among the bravest men in the country, and we believe rightly so. When the engineer dons his overalls and inspects his engine, then mounts his seat and opens the throttle, he then takes on himself one of the greatest re sponsibilities that an ordinary man can assume. He has got to read his run ning orders and memoriza them, watch his engine to see that It is performing its duties properly, and at the same time keep an eje constantly on the rail to see that the track is clear. There is a great difference between riding in a comfortable coach and that of riding on an engine, for when riding fast on an engine, one can draw a vivid picture of what would happen if he is running very fast and set some obstacle on the track a short distance ahead. These men nrepunct.ial and efficient, and draw a salary above the average working man because they are above the average man from a .standard of so briety and efficiency Railroads do not employ drunkards any more, nor do they send out men ou the ro.id who are unreliable. We wish to Impress on the mind of the reader that the mechanism of the Bulletin No. 3 Why Not Face the Facts About Armor Competition? To the People: The policy of the United States Government for many years has made real competition in armor-making ineffective. The Government might have asked the three armor plants for hids and let the entire tonnage to the lowest bidder. That would have made competition effective. The result of such a course would have been to drive two of the three manu facturers out of business, and Icuve the country with facilities of only one plant in time of need. The Government in fact has always asked for bids from the three manufacturers, but no matter what the price quoted, each year's business was divided among them. Armor makers serve but one customer the Government, just as a public utility serves but one customer a community. The solution of the public utility problem is regulation of rates. The solution of the armor problem is for the Government to fix the price. Wc voluntarily agree to accept any price fixed by the federal Trade Commission. Isn't acceptance of that offer better than the destruction of an industry built solely to serve the Government? CHAS. M. SCHWAB. Cbairmu BUGHNB 0.

When people have dealings with other corporations, they don't only pay value received for what they get. but seem to have a high regard for the cor poration exerting every effort possible to give satisfaction; but not so with the railroads, for they seem to lose patience if the train is not tight on time, wheu there are numerous causes for drlay that are unavoidable We believe that if the geueral public had a bettei knowl edge of the inside workings of railroad, ing, when they ask if the tratu is on time, to be told that It is not, or wheu they ask if thtir freight Ins arrived to be told that it has not, or again if they go to their grocer und ask for some commodity, to be tdld th.it it has never come, they knowing that railroad men are human the same as themselves, would have a greater consideration for railroads It we weie to ask the question today, which is the most indispensable of all modern industries, we would unhesi tateiugly say railroading.
