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. Frank Brainerd is expected from Clarinda - rinda , Iowa , soon. A sister will accom pany.

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 American. Excursion to Hot Springs , S.
