the Kansas CMty ping No. 131 was

tion ahead and one section and a
passenger behind, they worked at a
terrible disadvantage for hours, as

taken to the right place. No lives
were lost, hut the loss is a heavy one
for the company. No. 131 came in
at four o'clock Wednesday morning.

Nothing Like Confidence.
There is no quicker way to take the
life, growth ar.d energy out of a town
than for <ts citizens to be con
stantly holding up the dark side of
the picture to the gaze of the inquirer
The word “if,” keeps everybody in
doubt, and doubt keeps every man
from going forward with the improve
ments he would otherwise make.
There is nothing like confidence to
make a success of anything and if
you havn’t got any of it, don’t com
municate the fact to your neighbor,
much less to a stranger, and if the
bent of your mind is to continually
go against every interest of the town
in w'hieli you live, for the sake of the
town get out of it, and go to some
place that is already lifeless and has
no Interests at stake, when- you, like
tie- old lady’s root beer, if you don’t,
do any good, you won’t do any bun.
