"GOOD morning Mr. Brown , you'n

HUMORS of railroads continue tr

A SOFTLY sentimental poem by Sec

THE President has received an ele
gant framed photograph of Prince Bis
marck. It was a present from Prince
Bismarck himself and bore his personal
autograph. It will be hung in the Pres

his photographs similarly framed.

their valuables and rifled the mail sacks.
