of Conduct of Man on New
At Matawan the New York bound
train, pretty well filled with passen-
gers, took on a number more, among
them a family of eight—stout mother,
stout aunt and six children. The chil-
dren ranged in age from a baby in
arms to a youngster of eight or nine
years. There were few vacant seats
in the car into which this family
party trailed, and the stout mother,
with her youngest In her arms, and
the stout aunt, carrying a large bun-
dle, managed to squeeze into two un-
occupied places, leaving the children
to shift for themselves.
Along toward the middle of the car
sat a small, shabby, kind-faced man
who, observing that the five children
were standing about unsteadily in the
car aisle, arose smilingly and went
to their rescue. With much difficulty
he succeeded in finding scats for the
youngsters, giving up his own place
to two of them and standing in the
“Funny about that man takin’ so
much trouble gettin’ the children

the stout aunt.
“Yes," was the reply; ‘‘I’ve been

Some years ago Carnegie set aside
a fund to be used for pensioning
college professors, and last week the
Wakita Herald says ‘ there are not
many men that would accept a pen-
non from Carnegie, wnom the people
would want for president. Imagine
Roosevelt or Taft accepting such a
pension ” We do not know that. Wil-
son has accepted such pension. Nei
ther do we know that it is worse to
accept money from Carnegie
than it is to accept it from Rocke-
feller, Morgan and the steel trust
bunch. But we do believe that if
Wilson has taken any pension there
will be a public record of it, and it
will not be Decessary to have a con-
gressional committee, endowed wirh
plenary power, to find the record.
—Miss Ethel Collins, who lives with
her parents. Mr. and Mrs. M. E. Col-
| lins southeast of town, met with a
very painful accident last Friday
night. She was returning from a
[social, given in the neighborhood,
when the horse she was driving took
fright and ran away. Miss Collins
was thrown from the buggy and sus-
tained a dislocation of her arm, as
well as the fracturing of one of the
larger bones of the arm. Dr. Hamil-
Iton, of this city, was called and
treated the injured arm. At this
writing the young lady is reported
as getting along nicely, and as being
very thankful that her injuries were
| no more serious.
—Agent Meffert now has the new
I Santa Fe time card which goes into
effect Sunday, December 8th. The
only change from the card now in
effect is that the Sunday train will

of only to Anthony, and that the
evening train north will leave Man-
chester at 5:15 rather than at 4:38 as
heretofore. This change in the time
Of the evening train will effect the

Britain's Strange Sect.
The Jezreelites of Gillingham, In
Kent, England, have once more been
brought prominently before the pub-
lic in the old country. The founder
of thir strange sect, which is but little
known In these days, was a certain
James White, a private in the Six-
teenth regiment, who, on his conver-
sion, took the names of "James Jer-
shorn Jezreel." White gathered en-
thusiasts round him and, like the
early Christians, the Jezreelites had
all things in common. It was a prin-
ciple of the sect that its members
were the first portion of the 144,000,
twice told, who shall receive Christ
when he appears to reign on earth.
Shortly after the foundation of the
sect, “Jezreel" and his followers com-
menced to build a huge temple, in-
tended to hold 20.000 people, near
Chatham. “Jezreel" died in 1885, and
the work was never completed, but
the temple—tenantless and bare—sur-
vives today as a memento of one of
the maddest of modern dreams.

John Armour and wife, of Ed-

Wm. Watkins and wife and Ira
Watkins and wile, of Mancluster,
were in Gibbon Sunday afternoon.
—Wesley B. Smith, who has
recently entered the ministry, was
in town a few days ago and in-
formed the writer that he has been
assigned to Morrison, Oklahoma,
where he will move in a short time.
Mr. Smith and wife are well known
in the northwest part of the county
and about Sand Creek, and their
many friends wish them well and
success in his new calling.
Every thing Ciean and Up-To-Date.
T. B. JOLLY,
Most persons know the story that
Is told of Cleopatra to illustrate her
luxurious habits of living—that she
dissolved in her wine a precious pearl.
No one seems yet to have questioned
what must have been the effect upon
the drink, but scientists scoff at the
possibility of such solution.
The fact is pearls are not soluble
In wine. The most powerful vinegar
affects them slowly, and never en-
tirely dissolves them, for the organic
matter remains behind, In the shape
of a spongy mass that is larger than
the original pearl.
—J. M. Simmons returned from
Kansas City the latter part of last
week and said he was more than
pleased with the sale of his two cars
of cattle, which sold for 18 75 per cwt.
and netted $115,83 for each steer in
the shipment of 38 head-a total of
$4,401.70 net for the two car loads.
The sale weight of these cattle was
1IJ57, but as 'y were the tops of his
bunch, Mr. Simmons says it would
be impossible to estimate their
average daily gain during the 74 days
they were on feed. The net profit on
thlsshipmnt must have been close
to #30 per head, which is certainly
“going some'' in the cattle feeding
busings. He bad left in the lot five
car loads, all of which were loaded
Tuesday morning and he left for Kans-
sas City with them. When his feed
lot is cleaned up he has promised us
another article for the Journal on
the feeding of ensilage to beef cattle,
in which the actual daily gain for
each animal will be brought cut, to-
gether with the amount o( ensilage,
