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
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

car for refrigeration, while the
Armour line charged hint $139.40
for the same service. He had bilh

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
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
