TWO V RAILROAD NEWS OF PASSING INTEREST FIFTY YOUNG PEOPLE HAVE EN TERED THE SANTA FE'S ESSAY CONTEST. The Santa Fe'e idea In offering prizes to school children for the best essays on the demonstration train has met with most flattering response. More than 50 school superintendents In Kansas have sent letters to the publicity agent of the road, J. F. Jar rell, offering every assistance and promising that their schools would gladly enter the contest It is probable that nearly 200 schools in the state will furnish pa pers for the prizes. Thousands of school children witnessed the big demonstration train as it passed their towns and all of them have their own little opinions on its meaning and its contribution to public sentiment on the part of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railway. When the demonstration train ex hibited in Kansas towns last montu and in September hundreds of schools were dismissed that the children might see the train. The Santa Fe officials took special pains to explain the meaning of the display to the pupils and teachers and professors lectured to them. Thousands of school children in the state have in their possession picture of the train the largest locomotive in the world and the types of passenger and freight equipment The prizes for this contest are as follows : For best essay $50. For second best $25. For the third best $10. From fourth to eighth best prizes of $5 each. From ninth to eighteenth best prizes of $2.50 each. The contest closes December 10fi The children have more than three weeks for the work on their contri butions and reports from various cities and villages state that many pu pils are working on their essays now. The judges are L. L. Kiene, man aging editor of the Topeka State Jour nal; Philip Eastman, managing editor of the Topeka Capital; Albert Mac Rae, managing editor of the Santa Fe Employes' Magazine. The prizes will be awarded immediately after the judges meet and make their decisions. Good Position for Benedict. Bruce W. Benedict, for several years In the motive power department of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe in Topeka, has been appointed director of the shop laboratories in the de partment of mechanical engineering at the University of Illinois. Mr. Ben edict was born at Buda, III., In De cember, 1876, and graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1901. Before going to college he served an apprenticeship on the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy, and after grad uating returned to that road, where SHE HAD CONSTANT PAIN Until Relieved by Lydia E. Pink ham's Vegetable Compound. Dewittville, N.Y. " Before I start ed to take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege- ltaiut; i;ompouna i I suffered nearly all the time with head- lac he s, backaches, Iand bearing down pains, and had a continuous pain in - ei ii imy jeiL sine. i. I made me sick it I I tried to walk much, Jand my back was so iweat that J. was obliged to wear Icorsets all the time. But now I do not have any of these troubles. I have a fine strong baby daughter now, which I did not have before taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound." Mrs. A. A. Giles, Eoute 44, Dewittville, N. Y. The above is only one of the thou sands of grateful letters which are constantly being , received by the Pinkham Medicine Company of Lynn, Mass., which prove beyond a doubt that Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound, made from roots and herbs, actually does cure these obstinate dis eases of women, and that every such suffering woman owes it to herself to at least give Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege table Compound a trial before submit ting to an operation, or giving up hope of recovery. Mrs. Pinkham of Lynn, Mass., invites all sick women to write her for advice. She has guided thousands to health and her advice is free. FT -r he was successively, machinist as sistant in testing laboratory, assistant road foreman of engines, road fore man of engines, general foreman ot locomotive and car repairs and me chanical inspector. He was then for two years editor of the Railway Mas ter Mechanic at Chicago, which posi tion he left to become supervisor of schedules on the Santa Fe, and he has more recently been bonus super visor on that road. He is popular and well known- In Topeka and will be missed In rail road circles in that city. Afraid to Buy In West Chicago, Nov. 20. Conservatism among Interior merchants in all sec tions is growing. This is shown by reports made by the leading jobbers, whose traveling men are on the road for spring orders. They say that many of the interior distributors who usu ally place good contracts at this sea son now tell the salesmen that they are not ready to buy, and to call later. So many merchants are following this course that sales of spring goods show a substantial decrease In the aggregate to date as compared with last year. Jobbers are therefore revising their optimistic views as to the future. They say, however, that those who do not buy goods early in the season will do so later, and they anticipate a fairly even distribution throughout the season. This belief is confirmed by the liberal volume of business now witnessed for immediate delivery, as buyers prefer to buy as required rather than to take risk of being caught with a surplus stock. This feature is making the jobbers carry stocks and gives them a more even trade from month to month. Dramatic Locomotive Mishap. Railroad men have been reading of the new Buck external throttle invent ed by W. F. Buck, superintendent of motive power of the Santa Fe. Below is an account of an accident on the Erie an accident that probably could have been prevented if the Buck throt tle was in use. "When the engineer," says the report "eased upon the throttle preparatory to stopping at the station, the engine, with its six heav ily laden passenger cars, rushed on with increasing speed. He closed the throttle, but there was no re sponse. With his engine running away with the train, there was but one chance the emergency brakes. He jammed on the air, and the train was brought to a stop 100 feet beyond the station. For an Instant the en gine's brakes gripped the wheels. Then with a roar, the engine shook and heaved and the wheels revolved SB though the engine was traveling 90 miles an hour. Showers of sparks flew into the air, but the train did not move. The emergency steam valves were thrown open, and to prevent the lire from generating steam faster than it could be blown off, several pails of water were thrown on it. Soon the engine spent its power, and the wheels slowed down. Investigation showed that the throttle had broken inside the boiler. It was fortunate that the airbrakes held, for the en gine would have jarred the throttle wide open and the train would never have made the sharp curves within the city limits without disaster." As a fitting accompaniment to this thrill ing drama, one can fairly hear the engineer shouting: "A notch, an other notch, my family pass for a middle notch in the reverse quad rant!" MANY SQUIRRELS HOLD FORTH Right to Search Pockets for Nuts Is Held by Washington Pets. Washington squirrels are the aris tocrats of squirreldom. Every one of the numerous little parks or "squares," as they are known in the capital, has its band of squirrels. Feeding them is one of the established amusements of park life. The squirrels are pro tected by law and soon learn they have nothing to fear. Those in the White House grounds are especially tame. It is not an uncommon sight to see one of them scampering along at the heels of visitors, mutely beg ging for alms. While feeding the squirrels Is a common practice, each park has a little company of men and women who constitute themselves the especial guardians of the pets In that square. The squirrels learn their friends and come scurrying down the trees upon their approach On their hind legs they beg for nuts and often they search pockets for them. Children learn thus that there is more pleas ure to be had from being kind to ani mals than by Indulging In the usual childhood practice of persecuting them Coloratura, Maybe. "Do you remember the oldest Jimp son girl?" "Esmeralda?" , "Yes." "Quite well?" "You know and I know that she wai born right here In Alabama, and yet since she has become an opera star she calls herself a Colorado soprano!" LITTLE WARS OF THE FRENCH They Have Two Campaigns on Hand at Present That May Last for Years. While the war in Morocco calls for 30,000 men, France still has two other little wars on her hands with no pron pects of complete pacification within three or four years. The latest news from Wadal in the heart of Sudan shows that in February the negro tribes affiliated with the Se noussia were still fighting fiercely, de spite invariable and severe losses. A serious encounter took place on February 7 in Darkouti, just occupied by the French under Colonel Largeau. On the previous day a large caravan from Mecca, in connivance with the Senoussian chief, Allan Djabou, pre sented itself at the intrenched port at N'dele, professing a peaceful attitude. At three o'clock In the morning the tribesmen, approaching under cover of the caravan, opened a furious fire on the French and their native allies. The battle lasted until eight, when the at tack broke up in a panic. Allah Dja bou was ahot in the leg. He left 50 dead on the field and carried off hun dreds of wounded. This is a sample of a dozen com bats recorded in brief dispatches in the French papers. Reenforcements are now moving in from the coast to join Largeau. They should reach him about the middle of August. He will then have 1,200 men, and it is be lieved he will soon be able to pacify central Africa and end the pernicious activities of the Senoussla. The other troubled region is on the Ivory coast. The tribes living near the Liberian frontier have recently been brought into order after a cam paign of six weeks in which they lost heavily, while the French had seven men wounded. France has 2,400 native troops un der French officers operating in the region, and expects to have it reduced to order In three years. So far 40,000 guns have been captured from natives and destroyed. OLD CUSTOM BRINGS TROUBLE Young Men Try to Force Entrance to Young Girl's Home ana Are Shot Four young men have been shot at Vex (Valals) by an irate father to whose daughter they had come to pay court. They were refused admission to the house and when they tried to force their way in the father took down his gun and fired. Two of them were slightly wounded and the other two seriously. The father was ar rested. The encounter and its almoBt tragic ending were due to an ancient custom which prevails in the villages of the canton of Valals and In the Alpine hamlets of the German cantons. After a girl has reached the age of eighteen her parents are not surprised to re ceive the visit of several young men after the day's work to ask to see their daughter and pass a pleasant evening in the family circle. The visit Is looked on as a compliment, and as the young men bring with them wines and food they are generally welcomed by the parents. The cus tom, which Is known as the "Veillee," results in introductions and often In marriages. Waited Long for Honor. Forty years to elapse before honor ing a hero Is, to say the least, a rea sonable time. Few of his comrades will be left to say that the distinction is Invidious. Yet this Is what has happened to the man who saved the Louvre when Paris was in the hands of the commune in 1871. Maj. Mar. tian de Bernardy de Segoyer was the hero of May 24, 1871, and the victim of the mob a day or so later. He was in command of the Twenty-sixth battalion de chasseurs-a-pled and was dispatched to occupy the Tuileries garden. He saw the Louvre was threatened, in fact, the flames had reached the gallery of antiquities. He had no orders, but he took upon him self to send his men and In a short time the flames were under control, London Globe. Not His Line. George L. Shronk, one of Atlantic City's champion life guards, was dis cussing his profession, says the Los Angeles Times. "Funny things happen to us guards sometimes," said Mr. Shronk. "A funny thing happened to my friend Tim last week. A society belle from Spruce street went into the water wearing one of those fashionable transformations or wigs. A big wave went over her and when she came up the transformation was floating out to sea. She turned and ran to Tim. "'Oh, save my hair!' she yelled. 'Save my hair!' " 'Pardon me, lady,' says Tim. 'I'm a life saver, not a hair restorer.' " A Cruel Apologist "Mr. Bllggins takes himself very seriously," said the critical young wo man. "Well," replied Miss Cayenne, "you can't blame him. To be thrown into a cruel world with no more brains than he possesses would be a serious matter for anybody." Baby Eulogy. Us--Come right In, old man, and see our new baby! There isn't he great?

ONE-FOURTH OFF VICTOR TALKING MACHINES SENT MAN TO PEN THEN WEDDED GIRL WA(ITS NINE YEARS FOR JAMES DALTON AND THEN BECOME8 HI8 WIFE. Topeka, Kan., Nov. 20. Miss Laura Taylor, the girl who got James S. Dal ton 'into trouble that led to him to eb sentenced to be hanged, woited nine year until Dalton was paroled and has been married to him. They are living at Hutchinson, where Dalton is in charge of the Bertillon room at the state re formatory since he was released from prison on parole a year ago. He Is the only man In Kansas who is not a citizen of the state but who is a state employe. The fact of Dalton's mar riage did not become known until he asked the United States civil ser vice commission for a job and the commission asked for his record as a prisoner and as a man since his re lease and before he got into trouble. Dalton was a salesman for a hard ware firm in Seneca in 1898 and met Miss Laura Taylor on one of his trips through the country. They fell in love with Dalton made his head quarters at the Taylor home. One night while Dalton was there a broth er of the fiancee and a man named Royal came along and wanted help to get out of the country. They were dodging the officers then. Dalton, being acquainted with the country, finally agreed to help them escape at the earnest pleadings of Miss Tay lor. Dalton, Taylor and Royal were cap tured in Marshall county and taken to Marysville. A jail delivery was planned and the three men escaped. The jailer was killed. Dalton went through the Cuban war and later set tled in Texas, where he was capturea in 1902, brought back to Kansas, tried and sentenced to be hanged. He was taken to the state penitentiary, hang ing meaning a life term in prison in Kansas, and was kept there until a year ago, when Governor Stubbs pa roled him because the probability of Dalton's guilt of the murder was slight and flimsy. Dalton had become a stenographer and Bertillon expert and was given the job at the reform atory. AMERICAN ROAD CONGRESS Richmond, Va., Nov. 20.

HEAVY REVENUES IN HAWAII Some Figures Which Show the Im portance of the Islands to Uncle Sam. "The Importance of Hawaii as a revenue producing part of the United States has never been appreciated by the people of this country," says D. J. Conlon, treasurer of the territory. "In the twelve years Hawaii has been an nexed to this country the islands have paid into the United States treasury in customs duties alone nearly $15. 000,000. The whole state of Washing ton, with Its great cities of Seattle and Tacoma, has paid into the coffers of Uncle Sam only $70,000 more In customs than the Hawaiian islands. "Last year Hawaii paid Into the federal treasury duties and taxes amounting to $1,772,869, according to a report made by Secretary Mac Veagh. This Is more than was paid by Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, Delaware, South Caro lina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Iowa, Colorado, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Wisconsin, Kansas and other states, and New Mexico, Arizona, Alaska, Porto Rico or the Philippines. In 1910 Hawaii ranked thirteenth la the collection of customs, being ex celled only by New York, Massachu setts, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Flor ida, Louisiana, Ohio, Michigan, Illi nois, Missouri, California and Wash ington. "The sources of revenue in Hawaii are similar to those of any of ,the states. Customs duties form a large part of this revenue. The corporation tax produced last year $124,000 la Hawaii, and this year It will reach several thousand more. These figures merely go to show the importance of the Hawaiian islands to this country, and their value compared with the other Insular possessions of the Unit ed States."
