A FRIGHTFUL FATALITY.
Last l-'riday afternoon this community
was painfully shocked by the announce
ment of the fatal injury of Frank E.
Crandall. It is stated that he was walk
ing backward over a freight train, that
he fell between the cars of which seven
teen passed over his body, severing both
legs and an arm and injuring him about
the head as well. He lingered a few
hours, but expired before the arrival of
the special train from this city bearing
his mother. The accident occurred
about four miles from Bloomington.
The remains were taken to Tuscaloh,
Illinois, for burial.
There is the deepest sympathy in
this community for the bereaved ones.
The deceased was an exemplary young
man, and highly esteemed by all.

and stop the binder, every now and

out of the machine a full grown jack
rabbit jumped out of the sheaf and made
tracks across the wheat field.
This week James Swearingen, the
esquire, engineer for the Burlington
route, notified his friends that for the
first time since the strike he had come
in with a double header. The boys, who
knew that Jim pulled the throttle on the
switch engine marveled at such talk,
and wise heads said Jim was off, but Jim
knew that it was a fact and when press
ed for a better explanation, he remarked
that at 2:30 Tuesday afternoon his wife
gave birth to a pair of twins, and if that
wasn’t a double header, he’d quit rail
roading. The boys saw the point, and
now they dub Jim the “Great Mogul”
and he sets up the cigars right along
without waiting for a fellow to ask.—

The Inter-State Commerce Commis
sion, organized by the Federal govern
ment for the purpose of studying railroad
statistics, recently completed a report on
the operations of the United States. It
appears that there were 1,890 railroad
corporations in the United States during
the year ending June 30th, 1893. They
received in that period nearly a billion
and a quarter of dollars. They carried
593,560,612 passengers over 14,229,101,084
miles and transported 745,119,482 tons of
freight a distance of 93,588,m,833miles.
These operations were conducted on
176,461 miles of railroad. In round
numbers 900,000 of employes of all
grades are supported by these roads,
making one person in every ninety of
the population of the United States.
Accepting the stated capitalizations
which the companies have reported,
it appears that on an investment of
$10,500,000,000 less than one per cent, of
dividends were paid. It is calculated
that out of every dollar that was receiv
ed by the railroad companies, 75 cents
went to the employes.—Scientific Amer

CABLE FROM QUEEN LIL.
Dear Gresham:—One more boon I crave,
I trust in your affection,
’Tis not to murder Dole, the Knave,
Or put down insurrection;
’Tis not my crown but me to save,
I write in deep dejection,
And so a package I must have
Of Parks’ Tea for my complexion.
GRESHAM’S ANSWER TO QUEEN LIL.
When I received your cablegram
I thought I sure would faint
For though I often use Parks’ Tea
’Tis not for your complaint.
I feared that Mrs. G. would think
Wrong about our connection
’Til on her dresser there I saw
Parks’ Tea for her complexion.
