Santa Fe trainmen vouch for the state
ment that Friday's through California
train was flagged by section men two
miles this side of Lexington because the
rails of the track had been curved by the
heat into the appearance of sleigh run
ners , the heavy spikes having been pul
led from the oak ties and thrown into the
air by the strain of the bending rails.
The accident occurred but a few minutes
before the train was due to pass ; and had
not the section men been at once attrac
ted to the spot by the noise of the fly
ing spikes train would have dashed- into
the break and have been hurled from the
track. Passengers on the train stated
that the heat at the point of the accident
was terrific. While the repair of the
track was going on the occupants of the
train sought wood at one side of the
track and remained there until the work
was completed. It took two hours to
put the track in shape for the train to
proceed. Kansas City Journal.

Gophers Destroy a Canal.
An Oklahoma City enterprise has
been ruined by the gopher pest. It was
thought that the rapidly flowing North
Canadian River could be used to operate
all the mills that could be placed on its
banks at Oklahoma City. The fall was
neaily thirty feet and it was expected
that 2,000 horse power would be devel
oped. A canal five miles long was con
structed , at an expence of $40,000. It
was diked part of the way and the river
was crossed twice. The canal is twenty-
five feet wide and four feet deep , and
when four inches of water was in at the
head gate an electric light plant and a
large flouring mill were run with ease ,
but an unsuspected enemy soon caused
disaster to the enterprise. The banks of
the canal were porous , sandy soil and
gophers attacked the dike , the holes
which the animals burrowed quickly
widened into crevasses and the sandy
dikes -were easily swept away , causing
constant and expensive repairs. Finally
the entire canal became wrecked , and
farmers are now plowing up the right of
way and the canal is gone. Scientific
