lation of tho Arkansas anti-trust law

regarded as a test suit was decided
by the supreme court last week in the

tion for many weeks. The members

ure were Representatives Grosvenor

coast of South America. Only two
changes wore made in the bill as or

CIVILIZATION DOUBTED '
A Rock Island engineer at Hering
lon was talking about the duplicity of
farmers who bring claims against rail
road companies for the killing of
blooded stock when, as a matter of
fact, the animals were walking scare
crows. "About four years ago," said
the engineer, "before the Rock Island
bought the Choctaw, I was on an en
gine on the Choctaw Northern run
above Geary. Gray daylight was just
coming on, so as one could see pretty
well ahead, and I noticed two horses
on the track. They didn't appear to
mind the whistle or the bell and-J
slowly drew up to them and stopped.
The horses, two poor, old, worn-out
plugs, wore still standing across the
road, and on climbing down off the
engine to drive them away I found
that the hoofs of their forefeet were
spiked down to the planks at the road
crossing the track. How's that forJa
civilized country?" Kansas City
