Miss Nellie
Wright of
has been visiting in the city, has been
a student in Chicago for tne past several
years, making her home with an uncle,
Mr. Whited, who has visited Madison
several times. Nellie relates
stance which illustrates how men of
business pass their lives in a large city,
wnicn also serves as an object lesion for
young men, and again shows that great
corporations are not always as heartless
as they are sometimes written down.
At the age of alxmt nineteen years, Mr.
Whited took the position of ticket seller
in the Rock Island depot in Chicago
and was continuously in the service of
the company for fifty years, lacking two
months, when he letired about a year
ago on account of failing health. Dur
ing that time be passed through all the
lines of promotion until be reached the
position of general ticket agent, a posi
tii n he held many years at a munificent
salary with scores of clerks and as »ist
ants. TJjhm his retiiement, the com
pany continued to allow him a life sal
ary of |100 a montn. And what seems
even more generous and thoughtful,
when Mr. Whited retired the offices of
the depot were being remodeled and
newly furnished. When the work was
completed he recieved a letter advising
him of the new arrangement of the
offices and stating that his old desk had
lieen retained in its place and at any
time he felt "like coming down to the
offices his desk would lie at his service,
not for work but as an associate. This
is an illustiation that faithfulness to
duty, in any capacity, brings honor and
competence in declining

Mrs. Dudley who is a guest at the
Lake Park hotel in this city, will go to

statue of Abraham Lincoln in the ro
tunda of the national capitol at Wash
ington. Mis. Hoxie has invited Mr»
Dudley to sit for a bust model which
will be entitled "Ideal of Modesty."
Mrs. Hoxie's suojects have heretofore
been of the hero order, but having re
ntly met her friend, Mrs. Dudley, she
lecaine very much interested in the
symmetrical form and poise of her head
and gained her consent to sit for a mod
wuich she immediately suggested
should be entitled, "Ideal of Modesty."
In her sittings Mrs. Dudley will lie en
gaged reading one of her favoiite
authors whicn will at once portray tin
features the famous sculptress is desir
ous of perpetuating in clay as an em

Touching Story of S South Da

Return of a
Frank X#fter,
a well known ex-news
pajier man of South Dakota, who now
represents one of the great land com
Iani^s which recently purchased a vast
tract from one of the nortnwestern rail
roads, was recently encamped with
prosjiective land buyers beside a spri n
that bubbled up at the base of a hill or
bntte that could be seen for many mile*
over the Dakota plain.
At a little distance
the crum­
bling walls of a deserted sod house.
The roof had long since fallen in, and
rain and wind were slowly leveling the
walN, and yet quite a section stood,
defying the elements., dark and lonely,
iike the ruins of some frontier fort. A
faint footpath could lie discerned, al
most overgrown with glass, leading
from the cabin to tne spring. On top
of the bill was what apjieared to be a
section corner stake, such as are driven
by government surveyors, but which in
reality was a rude cross, near which
was a grave. The mound was marked
by a pile of stones.
The cabin was once the home of an
old woman who was a very devout
Catholic, and she had the cross erected
on the top of the bntte. The old lady
had a little income from property in the
east. and herr she lived for many yeais
a life of solitude and prayer. Her bus
band had died some years liefore she
took up her residence on the lonely Da
kota prairie, and an only son had fled
from hi* eastern home to escape the
penalty of some jietty crime.
Her constant prayer was for
ooy 's
return and it was answered at last in a
curious manner. On stormy winter
nights she was accustomed to hang a
lantern on the cross to guide (iclated
berdeis or travelers along the trail pass
ing near her home. One Ditter cold
night, after she had Ming out the lan
tern, she heard the shout of a lost trav
eler. Out of the darkness came the
form of a man, who was nearly frozen.
It was her long-lost son who had been
rescued from death by the friendly
light of the lantern wheh she had placet!
on the wooden cross.
He is today a prosperous ranchman
near the Missouri river. He owns the
and where his mother lived, and fre
quently visits her grave to see that it
has not been molested. As long as lie
lives it is nis intention to keep the
wooden cross on top of tne hill as a
monument to the faith and devotion of
