Birds in Attack.
Birds display great skill and cun
ning in the chase, the attack and in
guarding themselves from injury dur
ing the struggle for supremacy. The
secretary bird Is the inveterate enemy
and untiring pursuer of the snake. All
sorts, even the most venomous, he
hunts with a zest that is at once in
teresting and amusing.
The snake flees from Its foe, who
follows, watching every opportunity
for a blow When the reptile turns
the bird uses one of his wings as a
shield and strikes with his foot. The
snake buries its fangs in the wing, but
leaves the poison in the plumage and
the bird escapes unhurt
Repeated blows from the powerful
claw confuse and disable the snake,
and at last it falls, to be at once dis
patched by thrusts of the sharp beak
Into its head. The bird then tosses
his victim, into the air and, catching
it as it falls, swallows it
When Women Rule.
Men manage men more successfully
than women manage women. A man

truth is that men are juster, more

Women as Architects.
If every firm of architects would
employ a woman, says a writer, who

decorating of a house her special

mean increased business 'to the firm
but immense improvements and com
fort both in houses and flats.

All our yesterdays were once to

Some of the Bright Spots.
There has been much discussion the last
Tew months upon what the press has
called scandals in some of the large east
ern life Insurance companies, and while
attention has been riveted upon the diffi
culties of these institutions the public has
almost grown to believe ail are alike, and
are Inclined to censure all for the short
comings of the few.
In looking over the situation carefully
there seems to be some companies located
In the west that have neither speculated
In wall street securities nor invested in
them. All their assets, including both re
serve and surplus are invested in first
mortgages on western improved farms,
the best security in the woild. and draw
ing a good rate of interest. One such
company that certainly exhibits a clean
record, as shown by its reports, has its
home office at Lincoln. Neb., and conducts
its business under the name of The Old
Line Bankers' Life of Nebraska. It is
nearly twenty years old. but has never
done much talking about itself. It has
grown conservatively and quietly and has
made progress each year along lines that
Its policy holders approve. Practically all
of its assets of a million and a quarter
dollars ar invested In flrst mortgages on
the best of farms, and not a dollar of
past due interest is shown In its report.
Its earnings last year for its policy hold
ers was more than 11 per cent on its
mean reserve, the cost for new business
written is less than any of the leading
life Insurance companies is the United
States, and Its death loss per thousand
was less by one-half than any of tiiem.
Unlike many companies organized in re
cent years on the remains of some de
funct assessment order or company, it
started originally as an old line com
pany, and has no assessment business
weighing it down. Its surplus already
earned for Its policy holders is in amount
equal to 33 per cent ot its entire reserve,
its statement of assets does not show a
single dollar of the many items like
agency balances, bills rer!vab!e. premium
notes, stocks and bonds, real estate,
"other assets." etc. which make up a
considerable portion of the assets of many
companies, but It consists of money and
loans, and nothing else.
The public will discriminate more and
more In the future between companies,
not as to size, as In the past, but quality,
and the one that can show a clean record,
and ability through conservative manage
ment to ray good dividends, will receive
In the future an increasing patronage
from that great conservative portion of
the public who arc not looking for specu
lation In a lif contract, but for protec
tion and reasonable returns on their in
vestment. If the investigation of New Tork com
panies has done nothing more, it will
cause the western people to wake up to
the fact that, as illustrated above, they
have as good companies as any in the
world, capable of taking care of all busi
ness offered, and when taken managing It
as you would manage your own affairs,
and showing results that no eastern com
pany has up to date been able to dupli
cate. A great scholar says: In reading a
book, I always stop at the bottom of
each page and compel myself to give
an account of everything read on that
page. Thou mayst as well expect to
grow stronger by always eating, as

and digestion which make books serv
iceable, and give health and vigor to
EECOKD OF LOYALTY
SPLENDID WORK OF RAILROAD
MEN IN AN EMERGENCY.
Enormous Amount off Traffic Success
fully Handled on Single Track in
Face of Heavy Handicap Shows
Quality off American Train Crews.
The well-known writer on railroad
subjects, Mr. Frank H. Spearman, in
his book entitled. "The Strategy of
Great Railroads," describes the sur
prise of the general manager of one
of the eastern trunk lines, on a hunt
ing trip in the north woods, who sud
denly found himself on the right of
way of a splendid, well-built railway
line, apparently of a construction and
equipment similar to the New York
Central or Pennsylvania, along which
thundered in quick succession heavy
trains of iron ore, splendid passenger
equipment and general freight service
of surprising proportions.
This was the Peninsula division ot
the Chicago & North-Western Rail
way, which covers the Upper Penin
sula of Michigan, including the hard
wood district and Lake Superior iron
and copper region, with a surprisingly
efficient net work of lines that con
nect the mines and forests with im
portant lake ports, and with through
rail service to and from the outer
Along this busy ore-carrying line a
splendid exposition of the loyalty, in
telligence and general good team
work that can be expected of the aver
age railroad man and the efficiency of
the rules laid down for his guidance
In an emergency, was given a few
days ago, which so greatly pleased the
superintendent and other officials that
the story has finally crept into public
print, and It is well worth repetition
In these columns.
It was all occasioned by a very
heavy sleet storm that fell in the Up
per Peninsula a few days ago, which
threw down practically every tele
graph line in the region in a few
hours, and left the 464 miles of the
division absolutely without tele
graphic service for no less than forty
The ore movement has been espe
cially heavy this year, more lake Su
perior ore being transported on the
Great Lakes than ever before in the
history of the iron industry, and in
this emergency every mine would
have to rhut down on account of the
shortage of railway cars to move
their product unless the road was
kept open in spite of the storm.
There was nothing that could be
done by the chief train dispatcher;
both he and the division superintend
ent were temporarily out of the game.
It was one of these emergencies where
the "man behind the gun" must make
good, or the case was a hopeless one.
And make cood he did, in true blue,
loyal style, with that splendid initia
tive that makes the average train
crew typical of the qualities we ad
mire in our American troops.
There was no way in which to get
orders for train movements, no means
by which division headquarters could
be kept advised of where their trains
were, and to the onlooker, no means
existed by which the train crew could
keep track of the whereabouts of
trains in the opposite direction. It
was an emergency of the gravest char
acter, and was met with a splendid
exhibition of good judgment and in
telligent grasp of the science of rail
road operation that is perhaps without
an equal. They managed, on a sincle
track line, without telegraph lines, for
two whole days and nights, to kep
every iron and copper mine in the
district supplied with equipment and
moved all trains practically on time.
4.971 cars were moved over the di
vision Friday and Saturday, Oct. 20
and 21, and one hundred and twenty
five freight trains and no less than
thirty-four passenger trains were
taken care of upon the division, all
handled on time on a single track,
without accident, mishap, or delay
and without the help of a train dis
patcher. Can anyone beat that record of loy
alty to employers, hard work and in
telligent grasp of conditions?
Any man who has ever handled the
train movement of a busy railway di
vision will appreciate how very much
is involved in the work these train
men did, hurryiug to and fro over
sleet covered cars, keeping cool, and
ready to meet every emergency by ap
plication of the operating rules pro
vided for their guidance.

A Hint for Little Tapers.

out of a drawer and lighted it, and be

"Where are you going?" said the
"Away, high up," said
"higher than the top of
where we slee;."
"And what are you going
there?" said the little taper.
"I am going to show the ships out
at sea where the harbor is," said the
man; "for we stand at the entrance to
a harbor, and some ship far out on
the stormy sea may be looking for our
light even now."
"Alas! no ship could ever see my
light," said the little taper; "it Is so
"If your light is small," said the
man, "keep it burning brightly and

Well, when the man got up to the

little taper and with it he lighted the
great lamps that stood ready with
their polished reflectors behind them,
and soon they were burning steady
and clear, throwing a great strong
beam of light across the sea. By this
time the lighthouse man had blown
out the little taper and laid it aside.
But it had done its work. Through its
own light had been so small, it had
been the means of kindling the great
lights in the top of the lighthouse and
these were now shining over the sea,
so that ships far out knew by it where
they were, and were guided safely intc
