A MESSENGER MISSING. A Seab Brought Train In But Did Not Go Out. M6nday night a scab messenger brought the Pacific Express car in over the Arkansas Southern road from El Dorado. He could not get an agent on the road to accept any of the matter and whedtbe reached here the car was loaded to the guards with all kinds o rexpress matter, mostly neat little packages of booze. The train reached here late at night and the agent told the messenger that he would not receive the matter then but would take it next morning. He came to the depot early and waited for the messenger to come and help un load the car, but he failed to put in an appearance and the car went back up the road as it came in. There seems to be no settlement of the strike in sight and it may be some time before the Pacific Company does any more business unless it grants the demands of the employees, which is for increased pay.

A Demonstration of Workings of Perfected Woodcraft. The local Camp of Woodmen of the World have had but one good chance to demonstrate the value to its members of the teach ings and workings of the order. That chance came about a month ago when one of the members, Mr. C. L. Jones, was afflicted with a case of continued or ty phoid fever. He was sick for some tiame and the members of the Camp went to see what he needed and as a result a nurse was employed to go and stay with him until such time as he decide I he no longer needed a nurse. The nurse waited on him 22 days and was d;scharged. The total cost to the Camp was $44, which has been paid by the members. This is the most beautiful example of the workings of the order and the promptness of the Camp in taking up the case of Mr. Jones speaks volumes for the members of Cedar Camp No. 107 W. O.
