Congestion of Freight Cars in East
and on Border Makes Situa
tlon Acute.
Railroads of Iowa have appealed to
the Iowa railroad commission to aid
them in meeting a car shortage
which is threatened.
The roads say that the prospects
for bumper crops were never better
and that thousands of cars will be
needed soon to haul grain. This
will overtax the carriers. In addi
tion there Is still a big congestion of
traffic at the Atlantic coast point—
tying up thousands of cars.
The mobilization of the troops on
the Mexican border, requiring the
transportation of a large amount of
government suppnes, also is con
tributing to the shortage of cars, the
railroad men say.
The state railroad commissfoners
have taken no action on the request.
However, In the past the board has
cooperated in these movements.
In applying to the oommission for
aid, F. H. Hamznlll of the Chicago
Northwestern railroad stated that al
ready commissions in other states
have' issued statements calling the
attention of shippers to the need of
prompt loading and unloading of
cars kL order to get the greatest serv
ice out of a limited number of cars.
"Last year your commission issued
a circular to shippers and railroad
companies which, unquestionably was
of great assistance in relieving con
ditions during the car shortage," saM
Mr. IHaramlU.
"The responsibility for car utility
'rests equally With the shipping and
receiver'of freight as well as' the
carriers, and it Is entirely a question
of equal responsibility and requires
utmoet cooperation between all three
parties in order to get the best re
The railroad representative calls
attention to the fact that prosperous
conditions prevail all over the coun
try and that there is a vast amount
of freight moving in the heavy manu
facturing district of the east, requir
ing many care. This, with other
causes during the period of move
ment.of grain in the west may cause
a shortage of cars that will be worse

is claimed.

'Boston ^Transcript: The wonflieiltd
thing about the fire-fHes is .their 'beau
tlful resileasnesa. One Is always
minded by it of the Indian, name •for
the fireflies: the-lndlansicalbthemthe
movers. Why the movers? Became
tn the Indian tongues the teem "the
movers" signtfles tbo-reetlesa ones,
and means the spirits of the dead, o*
of certain dead who cannot stay still
in one place. They aTo the spirits
who pry into things, and who spy you
out If you teSl the secrets of the dead,
that is, if you tell the folklore stories.
Therefore no Indian will tell a story
in the season of the fireflies. Sard
tack for the scientific gents, tor the
professional folktale authorities who
have taken the period of their 'sum
mer vacations to oaQect Indian folk*
joret The Indian story-teller becomes
silent the moment the llrst firefly, the
first mover appears, and never "will,
resume his function until the- last one
is gone. Winter, and the fire smoulder
ing in the middle of the tepee, and the
chXidren'-a eyes gleaming like coals
In the recesses behind the women. Is
the time- for stories. Then the-restless
ones June far away.
The- -duke of Devonshire, the-®ew
governor general of Canada* owns tn
addition to Chataworth, his principal
residence in Derbyshire, some half a
dozen palatial establishments In vari
ous parts of England and a great
mansion in London.
