subjects pertaining to school work
wcro discussed. The meeting was a
Busoessas to the purpose for which it
was held, and many said their meet

Aftor the meeting tho Superintendent

As soon as thoy aro received a supply

''An act to allow children of school

lie it enacted by the legislature of

Section 1. That where children of

Tho sehool distriot where suoh ohil
drcn shall attend school may collect
from the school distriot where thoy

as tho county Sapcrintendent shall
make public the said apportionment.
Section 2. Tho tcachor shall keep

To Prevent Train Itnlihvry.
The way to prevent the robbory ol
express trains iu to shoot the robbers.
Every train crow should bo taught
that it is a part of their duty to shoot
on sight any marauder that attempts
to board nn engine or express car at
night. Tho uncocks that is attending
tho train robbing business recently is
drawing quito a large number into the
business, and tho only way to arrest
tho growth of tho industry is to cul
tivate tho fashion of shooting the mib
creants who go into it,
This city, nays the St. Josoph Os
teite has sot an example .worthy of
oloss imitation. Tho probability is
that had tho fellows whonct their
death at Roy's llranoh Sunday night
dreamed that thoy wero likely to meet
the slightest resistance, no ropo would
havo been found strong enough to lead
them to uho sccno of the attempted
robbery. They had read of train rob
beries, and the business scemod to of
fer such large profits and such smooth
sailing that they ncvor thought of ser
ious opposition to their demand for nn
unconditional surrender. Thoy expect
ed to blow open a car with dynamite
and to 6tand over the meiscngcr, gun
in hand, and compcll him to open the
safe. This done, thoy could tnko the
contents, firo a few shots ut tho win
dows of the coaches to iutimidato tho
passengers, and from there on tho
worst danger they could reasonably
exprdt was a race with tka sheriff.
Such had been tho history of nearly
all tho train robbers they had ever
heard of, and so they cxpecteo the ox
ptditiou to Hoy's Rranch to terminate.
They did not expect to havo to fight
for tho booty, or not ono of them
could have been persuaded lo under
take its capture. They had no; doubt
of winniag an easy victory. Hut
things turned out in variance with the
rosy experience of tho train robbers
thoy had read about. Instead of on
joying the terror of the paseongeis
aud a triumph over tho trainmen,
thoy mot with a reception, the wido
publication of which will have a ten
doncy to cool tho ardor of the gentry
in all parts of tho country. Instead
of sacks fillod with money, two of
them got their hides filled with lead,
