No definite conclusion w as arrived at though one of the niembtrs sta'etl that theyexp'cted to secure a much better rate than the) have ever liai hereto fore, and he added that if there is an) one who should be favored with a reasonable rate bv the railroads it is the old soldier. xs the matter stands It Is not likel) that an) llilug definite will be known in regard to the rates until after the net meeit g of the Central Traffic as-o,iaticn, as tlie offers differ so materiall) that some consultation will have to be had. I ast night the distinguished part) was invited to attend the regular meeting of McCo) post and during the evening the) were called out aud made stirring speeches, and were most enthusiasticall) received.

A gold ring in 11 jewel case that was sitting on the bureau was badly twisted. All the numbers of the family and the boarders sleeping In the house were more or less shocked, except Mr. and Mrs. Walker. The strange part of the matter is that the) were sleeping In the riom where the damage was inostl) done and still were the onl) ones that were not affected b) the shock Mrs. Cramer probably felt the re sult of tlie shock more than any one else, but she Is nut at all badly hurt.
