He was carried to th s station. where he alighted, and with a revolver in each hand, began firing to intimidate whomever he met. Ao one attempted to intercept him. The pay car was gener ally supposed to be attached tc this train, but owing to the fact of the many train robberies of late n pas ia ten dent Star buck decided to bold the pay train until daybreak. Five shots in all were fired through the windows from the platform When the train pulled into Mount Pu luski the passengers were in a lively state of excitement. The injured brakeman was placed under the care of physicians, who pronounced his injuries very serious. The train proceeded on its way with a guard of armed citizens, who volunteered to accompany it as far as Decatur. Brake man Scott' home is in Paris, Edgar county. Ills.

The almond has a thin shell around the stone, which splits open and shows the stone when mature. This outer akha has simply become fleshy in the peach. so that it is all that gives it its specific character. It seems now clear from in- -vestigation in the history of ancient Babylon that in their gardens, nearly ,000 years ago, the peach was cultivated then as it now is. -- - It most have been many years before this that the peach was improved from the almond, and this fact goes to show the great antiquity of the fruit. Possibly gardening in some respects, at least so far as it relates to many of oor cultivated fruits, was as far advanced 8,000 or 8,000 or perhaps 10,000 years back as it is today. Phoenicians, many thousands of yean ago, as is proved by the records, hnd in their gardensalmonds, apricots, bananas. citrons, figs, grapes, olives, practice, pomegranates; and even sugar cane Was in extensive cultivation. Certainly this shows how far advanced these THftf were in garden culture many yean ago. Detroit Free Press.
