Freights Will Run.
Chicago, 111.. Dec. 7. The Gener
al Manager's association of the
strikebound railroads issued a state
ment declaring that there would be
no "gloomy Christmas" for any one
because of inability of the roads to
deliver Christinas freight on ac
count of the switchman's strike.
"At the close of the sixth day of
the switchmen's strike," reads the
statement, "we have shown greater
progress than any day since the
strike was called. That we feel lit
tle concern about our ability to
move the Christmas merchandise,
live stock and perishable freight is
assured by the fact that all lines
continue to accept traffic to and
from all points without restrictions,
and unless conditions Were practi
cally normal it can be readily de
termined that the railroads would
hardly use the business judgement
of continuing to accept the freight
to fill up their terminals and freight
houses at the risk of enormous
The pink (tea) thermometers in
this city yesterday morning regis
tered from 2 to 8 degrees below
zero. We have no idea what a good
one would have made. Two of
them six feet apart at the Southern
pharmacy registered 2 and 3. One
at Walkers across the street from
them was 6 and one at Dr. Rutledge'
150 north, registered 8 and the one
at Wood's drug store scored 3. So
there you are.
At the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Mage Brower, Sunday afternoon,
promptly at 1 o'clock, Mr. Ralph
See and Miss Callie Brower were
united in holy matrimony by their
former pastor, J. W. Trower, of La
Grange. Only the relatives and a
few close friends were present.
The house was beautifully deco
rated with red and white chrysan
themums. Immediately after the ceremony
we were invited to the dining room
where a sumptuous dinner was
served. After a few social hours
spent in pleasant conversation the
friends and relatives departed wish

Early Christmas Shopping.
According to an exchange the
Tacoma, Wash., Ledger recently de
livered itself of some excellent ad
vice on this at present much-ciij-cussed
topic of "doing your Chist
mas shopping early."
The gist of its article is that per
sons who shop early go about it de
liberately. They are not going to
buy because they feel they must
provide presents of some kind or
character. They intend to take
their time in order to select some
thing particularly appropriate for
the person to be remembered. It is
a much greater compliment to re
ceive a present that has been Ee
lected with deliberation. One does
not like to think that at the last
hour somebody rushed through the
stores to find something or another
that would "do" and finally in de
spair grabbed an article and rushed
away home or to the posto'fice or
e:;pic.ss office with it. A good deal
of the commercialistic spirit of the
latter-day Christmas season may be
avoitled by early shopping.
Order Rurals to Mail Early.
Washington. D. C, Dec. 1. - The
postoffice department in an official
circular urges people contemplating:
u filing Christmas packages for de
livery in rural communities to post
them as early as possible in order
avoid congestion and consequent
delay at postoffices supplying car
riers on rural routes. It is sug
gested that packages containing
presents be marked "Not to be
opened until Christmas" and be
sent several days 'n advance. One
delivery will be made on all rural
Bar Tracks From Levee.
Jefferson City, Mo., Dec. 1. An
alternative writ of mandamus was
issued by Chief Justice Valliant, of
the supreme court, last evening,
against the mayor and city council
of Hannibal and the Burlington
railroad company. The mandamus
seeks to compel the mayor and the
city council to revoke a license is
sued to the railroad to construct a
double track through the city levee.
This authority was granted to the
railroad by the city officials in No
vember. 1907. for $10,000, which
has been paid. Now the company
is preparing to avail itself of this
privilege, and the citizens are mov
ing to prevent it from cutting
through the levee.

Mail Order Truths.
An exchange sizes up the mail
order situation in the following
ter&e and truthful st;yle: If the lo
cal merchants would advertise as
intelligently and persistently as the
mail order merchant, the former
could snap their fingers at all the
mail-order houses on earth. No
man will send to Chicago for goods
if he can be supplied as well at
home, and if he can be supplied at
home it is the business of the local
merchants to let the man know.
