"Bailroad men as a general rule have seen their best dajs." said a member of a little group of rail roaders, who were huddling about the stove in the Milwaukee depot this morning.' This brought out a length? discus sion of the railroad question from the standpoint of the engineer and fireman, which vocations were repre sented by two men. who have evi dently been around the country con siderably. Yes," spoke up the fire man. "I he days of big saJnries and light work have passed. Wtile all me roaas are not using me big en. fines as extensively as others, in my opinion it is only a question of a few rears until the mogul will be run ning on every division of the svstem. Five years ago 35 loads was the standard on moBt of the roadd, bnt now; well there Is no standard; the order is pull as many as possible. The runs have been lengthened, and it about plays ns fellows in the cab oat before we reach the terminus. 'Engine men have no time now r.o keep their locomotives in trim, like they formerly did. And, too, the old time engineers are gradually being sidetracked. They are the boys who think as much of their en gines as a child. That's saying a rood deal, but it is nevertheless the fact in (aany instances. I remem ber before tbe Q.' strike I was ran uing out of St. Joe. Why, you coul.1 tee yourself on the machinery. Tbe nside of the cab was like a looking ;iass. Bat now things have changed. I be beys who took such pride in .heir engines have been supplanted oy the younger generation. And aow the machinery that was kept so bright in those days has been painted over. " Matter Monhaules Cantor.

People go along for years suffering witn piles, a bey try this and that and the other thing; from carrying a buckeye to getting treatment from a pnysician. .ihey obtain temporary reuei, may be, but they are never quite cured.

NIBSY NASH The routine business of the last gathering of the Glad Glove Push bad been aboat disposed of, when Boney Boland arose and handed the secretary the following resolution: bereaa, Uatde Push believe in square dealia, an dat every gny wot oeioags snouid M given a chanoe ter his white alley: should be allowed jes as much awing as da aex na ; an "Whereas, Dat dere has been a kind of a dispersitioa on de part of a few geexers wot tinks dey are de noie mustard an have arot it Id to dere garret dat none of de rest of as knows any ting, er has a right to put in our oar wnen questions of mo ments comes op fer chewin'; dere fore. "Rciolvcd. Dat de Push, while still allowing Mr. Nash's name to stay on de list as a com awn member, believes dat it would be better fer de majotity if we picks out a new pres ident." Secon der motion," shouted Blinky Peters, put de question, old man, an be a little hasty erbont it," stuck in one of the little delegation of members who were crowded about the south side of tbe old stove. All was serene for about a moment. The candle which held forth on tbe little table in the front of the qnar ters flickered nervously as PretiJent Mbsy shoved it a little to the west as he arose to answer the resolution which had been submitted by Boney ttoletd. His usuallv happy counte nance was now ashen pale. He stut tered and stammered a lew seconds before he was able to g.-t himaulf to getber. Fellers, Ise been on to ' de fact for some time dat tin; were not at together lovely in de Push, but ll tell yer dls biziness about try in ter give me de hot foot is more dan I ex pected from de guys wot I alwajs lougbt ler as me Irienls. Ujn't get uneasy Boney, cause it 11 not be necessarv ter put de question, fer I'm not so ignorant but wot 1 can takaa tumble wea me fellers are tryin to trnn me down. I'll give np ae reins wiaoui puttin er ter a vote. Bat. as I was savin before. wes one of de first gays wot spoke of dis kind of a club. I went aroundt among de fellers an stood on de co.- ners every night fer a whole winter working np de scheme. As some of yoase know, it was party bard sled, din fer awhile, an it looked for a fen moona as if de Push would go to de ceilin. Many a time I goes down io me jeans an puts np 1a ceats lir a cart a coal, wen some of yon laay freaks might jes as well saved me de amount, an went huntin footin along de railway tracks and down by de river. Coarae I'm not tnakia die talk fer to win sympathy, dy'a nn( mnar not muca. 1 wus not dragged np dat way. Bat I jest waniea to can yer attention ter a few tings so dat de coys an dere is a good many of dem on deck tonight wot are not posted on some of de games dat a certain click of sore heads is trjld to work, wiil not judge me wrongiuiiy. coarse 1 don't like to be personal, bat if I wanted to do a little turnia np I link it wouldn't take me more dan a jiffy to co an' lay me mit on de whole gang wot is pilotla de game by which dey hopes 10 knock me off de president's suul." Amen," came a piping voice from oenina tne atuve, which a number thought belonged to Squeak Jones. This pretty nearly made the preai dent smile. But he finally resumed: Its notbin more dan jealousy, date au; 1 say jealousy. ut sore noodled gen. oi makia dis trouble knows dat I has somewhat of a puil among some 01 ae good peope, and dey 're tryin ter knife me cause I'm gettia a lime popular, tellers. I mean von gays wots true to de colors, I'm wid you through thick and thin, and now as long as I have made me talk I feels better, and await your fnrder pleasure." No one murmured. Finally the only Inmp of eosl in the box went staring across the room and caught Fresh Mike In the southeast side of the craniom. Mike had been doing some qult campaigning in be- nan 01 iby ath during bis ad dress to tbe Posh. Me bad sec a red over two-thirds of the names of the members on a petition requesting tbe continuance of Nibsy a presi dent. Then an old mitt tL-.m up focn tbe rear of the room and put the light out. Then there was a free-(or-all-kaock -down -and drag-oat, daring which Boney Boland. Squeak Jones and four cf the members who bad concocted the scheme to remove Nibsy, were thrown down tbe stair way. After all of this faction bad been ejected. Fresh Mike went dowa to a neighboring store and borrowed a candle. The saetioc was called azaia, and Bocey Bilaad and Squeak Jones, who were the leaders of the Uvable. were suspended. Boney'a resolution wss need to light the corncobs. An armful of wood was stolen from a neighboring yard. President Nibsy put np the price of n growler and the meeting didn't ad journ until the caadle sue com bed at 1:4$; and as Nibsy. closed the door be declared. "Dere are adders, bat none so poplar."
