For paying their bills , railroad men as
a body , will compare favorably with any
other class of men of equal number , and
this department has heard a number of
earnest protests uttered by railroad men
against classifying all men in the service
as poor pay ordeadbeats , simply because
there are some deadbeats in the service.
It is unjust to the many who do pay
their debts promptly like men. Mark
the dead-beat , but don't include all railroad -
road men in the general classification.
Private advices received by William
Ritchie of the Burlington blacksmith

Tuesday morning , on his trip up the

teries , for contactwith , one of those electric -
tric contrivances rendered him practically -
ally insensible or unconscious for about
six hours , which covered pretty much
the entire trio up and back. He received
professional attention at Imperial and

The Catholic Knights of Anierica down
in Kansas City celebrated 1Vushington's
birthday by presenting St. John's paro-
chialschool of that city with au elegant
flag , 1111(1 strange to say , it was neither
the so-called papal flag nor the green
flag of Ireland , but the glorious flag of
our common country.
The event was participated in by
G. A. R , veterans and was characterized
by the most fervid bursts of patriotism
and loyalty and the singing of such
liynins as Colunibia , Gem of the
Ocean" , "Tile Star Spangled Banner" ,
of the " "
One "deserting" Irish-Catholics
concluded his remarks as follows :
' 'The Catholic Knights of America did
not belie their name ; there ryas nothing
they would not do to uphold the flag.
It was fitting that the Knights should
give the school a flag ; the proper place
to teach patriotism was iii the school ;
that if ever the tinie came when the
na _ ion needed good nien to uphold the
dignity of the flag it would finl them ,
as it had found then ; before in times of
emergency , in the Catholic ranks" .
This unhooked-for speech was followed
by another son of a "deserting" race in
this language :
'The flag with its inspirations , was
just as essential to the school house as
the atlas and the hook. Politics , as we
know it , is not patriotism. The lust of
office and the greed of gold are too often
the inspirations of the 'patriot' of today.
Mere politicians wish their country to
do something for them. True patriots
desire to do something for their country.
If the inspirations of the flag and the
teachings of the school shall develop an
unselfish and high-minded desire for
good citizenship , they shall have performed -
formed their best service to the young.
Zealous and fanatical partisanship
which , in its race for official place ,
tramples over law and decency , is a
menace to the nation. Frauds at the
polls , whethier effected by a combination
of political rings , or by conspiracy of
secret cliques , and which seek to disfranchise -
franchise the decent voter and the good
citizen , are the'ax strokes which 1118 } '
shatter the foundation of our best in-
stitutions. No Catholic or Irishman
should receive the vote of a good Catholic -
lic or Irishman unless he was competent
and worthy to fill the office he sought.
If a man were upright and honorable it
nattered not to what church lie be-
Quite a number of other speeches were
made in the same vein , hurt space forbids -
bids further use of this interesting inci-
dent. But it is instructive.

the reported pride. Ever ready dame rumor
sayeth not as to whether it was Al.'s fault or
not , but she undoubtedly will satisfy the curious -
ious with many explanations , in time.
The boys seem to think that Conductor
Cromwell has something of a stand in , as he
is the only man who gets any extras down
here. When there is an extra ordered they
say. "Does Cromwell stand for it ? If not , a
main line or a Republican crew will get it" .
Conductor Enright and Engineer Monks
took lots of good money from the branch
crews of both branches. They took the ice I
from Red Cloud to Oberlin , Sunday , and the
St. Francis stock train from Republican City
Another reduction has come to pass at Red
Cloud. This time it is the station force that
is struck. Night Operator Pruitt and Car
Checker Reigel are removed. It is not
known yet whether they will be furnished employment -
ployment elsewhere or not. This reduction ,
in view of the heavy transfer at this station ,
will place a great deal of additional -work
upon the running force. -
A traveling man the other day said to the
conductor , "I don't see any station men at
any of these stations , what is the matter" ?
" 6h , nothing unusual" , said the conductor ,
"they have just hid until the train leaves so
that Wright can't buttonhole them to arrange
a game with has colts , who are 'cracker
' , etc. , etc. You'll find them at the station -
tion all right if you'll call after the train is
one or when any of the other crews are on
duty" . The traveling man gave utterance to
the sing le word "Oh" , and hd under a seat.
