tendered by railroad employe that of
contributing a part of their monthly
wages to assist, the company for which
they are working has been made by a
Urge number of clerks, engineers, con
ductors and others connoctod with tho
Illinois Central system.
A request that they be permitted to
donate one or more day's pay in order
to aid the company In making repairs
' rendered necossary by the recent tor
nado in Omaha and widespread damage
caused by floods in tho south was re
ceived from tho employes by Vice
President W. L. Park. In declining the
offer Mr. Park issued tho following
"In all my railroad experience in the
ranks and as an officer, 1 never have
encountored so unselfish and loyal an
offer, that these men should voluntarily
tender their mito to assist 'their
company (and I use, the word 'thoir
advisedly, for such men are really part
ners in the institution) is an evidence
of such patriotic loyalty and self-nbne-
gallon mai i niu iiii-imcu . " "
that it is unparalleled in railroad his
tory." Notice to Parents.

IN FACT EVERYTHING
Campaigned Three Years
With a Woman.
Last week the daily papors gave an
account of an individual going under the
name of Albort D. Cashier, who had
served in the civil war and whoso
identity as to sex had but recently been
discovered. Local interest attuches to
the story for tho reason that this indivi
dual, who now turns out to be a woman,
served in the same company with Capt.
Ja8. S. Robbins, of Wallace, during tho
war, nnd was as well known to Captains
Robbins as any other member of tho
company. When she entered tho sor
vice she was about twenty years of age,
was of stout, stocky build, and on long
or forced marches kept paco without
falter, and on tho firing lino was as
brave and determined as any.
There was nothing in her actions to
indicate that she was a woman, other
than that she insisted on "messing"
alone, but as many soldiers demanded
this privilege, no attention was paid to
it. She was mustered out in 18G5, and a
fow years later was placed on tho pen
sion rolls of the government. She is
now a demented inmata of the soldiers'
homo at Quincy, III.
