Mr. Ade thought that theater tickets

ENGINE PETE'S STORY
"1 see there is a new house going up
here; some newcomer settled among
you?" I asked the livery man who was
driving me through the hot July
weather from Munden to Prairie Cen
ter. No new house had been built nor
old one repainted in the 10 years I had
made that territory.
There was no enterprise in the slug
gish veins of the inhabitants of that
world-forgotten region to inspire new
buildings or works that would link to
the living present a people adrift like
the cottonwood seed in a sea of past
memories and dreams. I thought some
newcomer must have penetrated Into
"No, that's old Pete Hanson's en
gine house. Haven't you heard that
old Pete has sold his railroad at last?"
"Didn't know he had a railroad.
What do you mean?"
"Gee! I thought everybody had
heard about Pete Hanson and his
"An Inventor eh?" My interest was
"I see I'll have to tell you. 'Bout 30
years ago this country was on a boom.
Nothin' sleepy about It then. It was
the liveliest section in the country.
They were going to run a spur right
through here to connect with the main
line of the Union Pacific; condemned
a piece of Pete Hanson's land. Pete
was young then and had three little
towheads and lived In a shanty. With
the money he got for his land he was
going to build a decent house. Well,
the road never was built; scheme fell
through and they never paid Pete for
hisland. Pete was bound to have his
money. He went over to Prairie Cen
ter and got out a writ of attachment.
Got the sheriff and some log chains
and swore he'd chain to the track and
serve the writ on the next freight train
that came along.
"The station agent wired down to
the division superintendent what was
up and they sent out the oldest and
most useless engine on the line. The
engine was run on a siding, the writ
was served and Pete chained her
down. The company telegraphed to
Pete that they guessed he had the right
of it and the only way they could see
it was that the engine was his huckel
berry. So they gave him 24 hours to
get it off their tracks. Well, that about
got Pete, hut he was game. He hired
half the men and horses in the coun
try and lugged his engine home. It
broke him. and he never did seem to
be able to get another start In life.
People nearly guyed him to death. Call
ed him 'Engine Pete' and 'Railroad
Hanson' forever afterward.
"So there that old engine set out In
his yard. The hens hatched their chick
ens in the bolter and the children play
ed summer house in the cab. As years
went on the old engine rusted and sunk
I deeper in the earth. The children grew
up and went away, lmt still old man
I Hanson stoutly maintained that he had
: done right and that some day he'd get
the money from the railroad to build
that new house which his wife and he
had wanted when the children were
"Well, the funny part of it is that
last year he got a letter from the rail
road company telling him that they had
been tracing the whereabouts of the
first engine that ever crossed the plains
on the Union Pacific, which was the
first road to span the continent and
connect the two oceans with an Iron
highway. They wanted this engine for
the Transportation building exhihit at
the World's Fair. Old Pete Hanson
held out for $2.000. and got it: and now
he and his woman are getting the new
