The other day when the two links of the Chicrgo, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway, one pushing eastward from Seattle and the other moving westward from Chicago, met near Missoula, Mont., the country paid very little attention to the circum stance. And yet at that moment the Mississippi Valley obtained another through line of road to the Pacific. This is the sixth of these transconti nental lines in the L'nited States. The Dominion lias one through rail way, the Canadian Pacific. It will have another in 1911, when the Grand Trunk Pacific is finished. The Ca nadian Northern, which is expected to be completed within a few years, will make a third line through the Dominion. Forty years ago there was no con tinuous railway communication with the Pacific. On May 10, 18(5!,Thomas Durant and Gov. Leland Stanford, of California, drove the last spikes at the meeting of the rails of the Union and Central Pacific roads, at Promon tory Point, Utah, by which the con tinent was spanned by railway the first time. By telegraphic connection the driving of the spikes was regis tered in the chief cities of the coun try. The entire United States was interested. Many distinguished per sons from all over the country were with Durant and Stanford. Ex-President Grant and other notables, many of them from Europe, saw the exer cises near Independence Gulch,Mont., in 188.'i, which marked the opening of Henry Yillard's Northern Pacific to the big Western ocean. The novelty, however, died with these two events. The completion of the subsequent through lines, like that of the Chi cago, Milwaukee and St. Paul recent ly, passed off without much notice. The railway has become a vast in terest to the people of to-day. With about 227.000 miles of main track in nnur'itintt. tl Tuitod States has HO per cent more railway than all of Eu rone, and has two-fifths of that of the entire world. England, which led us at the outset, has only a tenth as much railway now as the United States. These trans-continental roads have peopled the waste places be tWCPII t h Missouri and the Pacific aud have added greatly to the conn try's population, productiveness and wealth. Their influence is shown in a striking degree by the fact that GO nor ionr n f thp :inrrr:Lte exi)0rt Ol the United States are furnished bv the trans-Mississippi region Globe- Democrat. Attached the Goods. Sheriff McNulty on Friday morning of last week, served a writ of attach ment upon the residue of the stock of the Phillips drug store, and re turned it to the Phillips store rooms, being ordered by the Burlington com panv to vacate the boxcar in which Dr. A. Z. Swisher had loaded the stock. The goods had not been consigned to anv designation, and the railroad company has only the same knowl edge of Dr. Swisher's intentions as the general public. He has repeat edly said that so much of the goods is he could not dispose of here he would ship to Tribune, Greeley coun ty, Kansas. It is alleged that investigation has isclosed to E. (). Phillips that Dr. Swisher's title to the :520 acres in ireeley county, which he traded to Mr. Phillips, is either defective, or oes not exist. The land (."520 acres in one body) had been purchased '"on ime" of the Union Pacific Land Company, by Dr. Swisher, and it is illeged that so far from the Doctor's itle being perfect that he had de faulted a payment which was due last October, and that by the terms if the original contract, the land had everted to the ownership of the "nion Pacific railroad. Hence the Utachment and the temporary dis- possessment of Dr. Swisher of the esidue of the drug ana miscellany st ock. In the Phillips-Swisher trade the 20 acres were valued at $11 per acre )r :,520, while the drug stock in voiced $.'i.00i. It is understood, how sver, to have been an even trade. How much cash Dr. Swisher re- ilied from the sales of the past month is not known. Craig Leader, pril 0th, 1000. Long ago the Scotch learned this. The sturdy old Scotchman must be amused at the recent "discoveries" that oatmeal is the best food in the world. Our scientific men have been making experiments which prove that Ameri cans eat too much fat and grease and not enough cereals. The Scotchmen say: "Look at our nation as proof. The sturdiest nation on earth." Still we have one good point to make. We make better oatmeal than the Scotch. They buy Quaker Oats and consider the leader of all oatmeals to be had anywhere. Quaker Oats is sold in fam- size packages at 2oc or at 30c tor the package containing a piece of fine china. The regular size package sells 10c Follow the example ot the Scotch; eat a Quaker Oats breakfast every day. AH'grocers sell Quaker 0'is. J Craig and Vicinity. Craig Leader, April 9, 1P09. Within the past week, steps have been taken to more efficiently drain ( the eastern and southern parts of town: more properly speaking to get those portions in condition to rid ; themselves of surplus water should this season impose any upon us. To ' this end a ten-inch vitrified tile has I been laid under Third street on Ens- worth, and a ten-inch tiie under Fourth on Ensworth. The latter tile is laid side by side with the six-inch tile which last season proved inade quate, not being large enough. A son was born April 4 to F. L. Randall and wife. A daughter was born April 7 to Maurice Stokes and wife, weighing eleven pounds. A daughter was born April 4 to John C. Xauman and wife, who live seven miles east of Craig. Fred Lawrence, yesterday mark eted fifty-two head of hogs which averaged 425 pounds before shipment. Mr. Lawrence himself took the con signment to St. Joseph. These hogs, all which were of equally mixed Poland-China and Berkshire breeding, averaged eighteen months old and were farrowed on Mr. Lawrence's farm.

To prove it, he tells of a farmer hauling hay and corn to town over roads almost im passable, at the same time declaring that the roads were good enough to suit him. That was when, he was paying for his farm. Now the same farmer owns an automobile and he is kicking like a bay steer because the roads are rotten. When all of us own automobiles perhaps we will spend the long summer evenings and moon light nights working on the roads, that we may get out on Sundays and break the speed limit. The Kansas City hay man. who has been here for several weeks, ship ped out to Kansas City, Friday, a big car load of baled hay: also a car load of horses.

Near Damascus, the capital of Syria. 140 miles north of Jerusalem. It is situated on two beautiful rivers, the Abana and Pharpar (2 Kings 5:12). Comment and Suggestive Thought. We have now completed the rirst three divisions cf our year's studies, the growth of the church (1) in Jeru salem, (2) in Samaria, (3) in all Judea. The rest of the year we shall be occupied with Paul, who was chief ly instrumental in extending the church over the world. Let us first take a general view of this great man. He was named Saul after the first king of the Hebrews. Paul, a Roman name meaning "Little," came to him from his Roman citizenship, and was probably used from boyhood along with "Saul." It first appears at Cyprus, as he begins his missionary journeys into the Roman provinces of Asia Minor, where "Saulos" would mean "Waddling," but "Paulus" would be a familiar and patrician name. A very natural change. Paul was born in Tarsus, at the northeast corner of the Mediterranean. It was the chief city of Ciiicia, on the Cydnus, ten miles from the sea. Paul leclared it "no mean city" (Acts 21:39). It "stood before the world at the entrance to the greatest province of the east as a metropolis, a free city with a free harbor, mistress of a large md fertile territory." Hastings Bible Dictionary. Its university rivaled those of Athens and Alexandria. It was governed largely by philosophers, some of the greatest of whom Paul probably heard. Tarsus is now "a wretched town of the Turkish style, retaining not a trace of its former splendor." Ramsay. His parents (whose names are un known) were strict Pharisees. Jews of pure descent, but Roman citizens, a fact implying distinction and wealth (Phil. 3:5; Acts 23:6). Paul's "man ners were those of a citizen of the world, familiar with the habits of good society." McGiffert When Paul be came a Christian, he was probably dis owned and cast off (Phil. 3:8) ; he was poor, and supported himself by tent making. In Caesarea and Rome he appeared to possess means and to be regarded as a man of distinction, so that it is thought that he had by that time inherited from his father's es tate. He was educated as a strict Jew. His family abhorred Grecian learning, and would not send Saul to the University of Tarsus, though his writings show that he absorbed much of Greek cul ture. When a lad of twelve or thir teen he was sent to Jerusalem (Acts 22:3; 5:34), where his 'teacher was Gamaliel, grandson of Hillel, the last of the famous Jerusalem rabbis. The Jews called Gamaliel "the Beauty of the Law," and generally revered him. He seems to have had a liberal spirit, and there is a tradition of his conver sion to Christianity. Paul said that his enemies said of himself (2 Cor. 10:10), that his "bodily presence" was "weak, and his speech contemptible." He was probably short, and had some personal defect, such as limping, or weak eyes. At Lystra. however, lie was compared to the elo quent and vigorous god Mercury, and he certainly had the power of com manding mobs and of winning friend3 even among the most hostile. He was deeply religious, whole souled, ardent, energetic, persevering, broad-minded, affectionate, lovable. He was great in more ways, probably, than any other man of human history. He was a great traveler, a great au thor, a grat orator, a great organizer, a great missionary, a great philos opher. All of this genius was yielded in absolute consecration to Jesus Christ. He is the Moses of the New Testament, and the two stand supreme among men. He led the Christian church out from the bondage of a nar row Judaism into world-sympathies and world-relationships, and so be came the human fulfillment of the highest thought of Christ for men. Some of the indications that Paul's eyes never recovered their full, vision are his failure to recognize the high priest when brought before him (Act3 23:5). The saying (Gal. 4:13-15)', that the Galatians "would have plucked out their own eyes and given them to him." The use of an amanuensis when he was poor. The signing of his epistles in "large letters" (Gal. 6:11). It is probable that this dimness of sight was the "thorn In the flesh" against which Paul prayed so fervent ly (2 Cor. 12:7). It must have been a terrible handicap to a spirit so eager and active as his. 'Conversion" means "turning." It implies turning from something, and to something else. Paul, as we have seen, turned (1) from pride (Intel lectual and spiritual) to lowliness, a humble following of Jesus and co-oper ation with other Christians; (2) from violent opposition to Christ, to the boldest and most persistent testimony for Christ; (3) from a life of authority and ease, to a life of persecution and suffering; (4) from the emptiness of worldly wisdom, to the unfailing guid ance of the Holy Spirit; (5) from the weakness of worldly power, to the in vincible strength of the Spirit.
