A dispatch from Houston says: Speaking of men who had won position by stering merit in the railroad world today, Judge J. L. Cox, land agent of the Southern Pacific, and W. L. Lane, chief clerk in Mr. W. G. Van Vleck's office, said that Gus Radetzki, chief clerk in Vice President Fay's office, deserves a great deal of praise. He was born at Browns ville, where he lived with his par ents till the outbreak of the war. He then went to Fort Clark, where he joined the army, He rode there on a burro alone, and he was still only a boy. The ride was fraught with many dangers and thrilling experiences. The country was full of Indians, many of whom were hostile to the whites. Mr. Radetxk: still has au old-fashioued flint-look pistol, which he took with him on this trip. He joined the army there as a private, and served through the war. After the war he went with his father to New Orleans, where the senior Radetzki went into the commission business. While there Gus fell in love, as young men will sometimes do, with a pretty young girl. He left New Orleans to go to Louisville, where he stayed for several years, then returned and married the pretty girl. He went into the railroad work in New Orleans in a ticket office, and gradually rose till he became chief clerk, the positition he now' fills. He is iu line for promotion to better positions, in fact has been offered more lucrative positions, but preftrs to Hold the one he now has on account of the agreeeableness of it. Gus Radetzki ,has- had many checkered experiences, but he has never forgotten his burro ride from Brownsville to Fort Clark. Judge Cox says he has a very warm place in his heart for burros evei since for obvious reason. Cost of Icing. Farm and Ranch. WilLG. Fields of Texas, in tes tifying before the Inter-State Com merce Commission in session re cently at St. Louis, said, accord ing to the Kansas City Packer, that he had iced a car of fruit at Cuero, Texas. The original icing cost him $12. At Dallas. Texas, he found it necessary to send the car on to Oklahoma City. He re quested to be allowed to re-ice same, but he was not allowed to do so. The Armour people took charge of the car for the balance of the trip, and their charge for ice from Dallas to destination was $38.40. Only two tons of ice were used at Dallas. He thought the $38.40 charge ez.orbitant. He shipped cabbge from Cuero to Chicago. The freight was $192 and refrigeration was $179. He had shipped "cukes" from Beau mont to Kansas City, paying for ice only, in a car other than the Armours,' only paying $24.80. He had to pay $150 vefrigration charges per car from Texas to .Cleveland Erom Texas to Chica go he paid the Santa Fe $65 per car for refrigeration, while the Armour line charged hint $139.40 for the same service. He had bilh to substantiate his statements. neighbor's land, injuring his crops and causing sickness in his family for which he sought damages. The court decided against the plaintiff, averring that the de fendant, the owner of the sod, did upon it that which his ownership entitled him to do, putting it to a natural and legitimate use in im proving it for agricultural pur poses. The court also shows authorities to show that, in com mon law, a person or the owner of land may, at his pleasure, with hold water falling on his proper ty from passing onto that of his neighbors, and in the same man ner may prevent the water falling on the land of the latter from com iug upon his own. This is un questionably a sound principle, especially applicable to a level country with running streams ort ancient natural drains. In the case of the latter, no one would have a. right to construct a dam which would divert the water from the use of those living below him, or damage the laud of his neigh bor above by the overflow of the impounded water. With the ex tension of irrigation a great deal of litigation is likely to ensue from questions like this, 'and the sooner they have been adjudicated, and the principles enunciated by the state or federal courts the better.

In the Agriculture and Horticul ture building at the Lewis and Clark Exposition there is an ex hibit of mohair and of the goods made of it which has interested every visitor to the building. Two Angora goats, mounted artistically, and looking very different from the neighborhood pests, of the comic supplements, stand on top of big showcases. Within the case there is shown the mohair in several states'from the rough to the silken strands. Then there is a great as sortment of mohair products, in many designs. Mohair robes, thick and soft, and almost as beautiful as seal skins are displayed, and mohair plush and dress fabrics alsq are exhibited. Several entire fleeces, which are used for rugs, are shown in another part op Marion County booth's. These, with their long, silky hair, which looks for all the world like the curly locks of a towheaded baby, are remarkably beautiful. They may be dyed also with good effect. The fleece from an Angora goat seldom .weighs more than ten pounds, so that as purely a wool proposition, goats do not pay as well as sheen: but- the versality of the goat makes him more valuable in many sections. Something Useful. A German forest keeper, sixty two years old, not wishing to carry to his grave an important secret has published iu the Lepzig Journal a receipt he had used for many years, and which he says saved several men and a great many animals from a horrible death by hydrophobia. The bite must I be bathed as soon as possible with warm vinegar and water, and when this has dried, a few drops of muriatic acid applied to the wound will destroy poison of the saliva, and relieve the patient from all present or future danger.
