"Would you mind giving mo a mug i

The cider was procured nnd dispcsc

"I've traveled a good distance toeln

A Man Jumps from n Moving Train
for a Strnn o Ilrnson ,
Baltimore reports the strangest rail
way accident of the past wcok , says the
St. Louis Republic. A man about forty
years of ngo was recently taken to the
Maryland university hospital , whore on
examination it was discovered that ho
hud sprained his right ankle and broken
two ribs. Ho said that there was some
offensive odor In tlio cur , and that ho
leaped from the train to avoid It. Kank
tobacco is unpleasant to many , but It Is
better to endure it for a tlmo than to
risk life by a foolhardy leap. Even hnd
the car boon pormentuil with assafevtlda
it would have boon butter to endure a
strain on tlio olfactories than to Incur
bue'h peril as tills traveler , bv his own
account , was willing to incur. The state
ment Is probably oerroct. A man who
hnd been Injured by muses beyond his
control , giving him a fair claim for dam
ages , would neit have boon likely to have
inaele a statement absolving the company
and throwing all blame on himself.
AVlmt is really surprising Is that a man
could have llv'eel for forty yearn and
learned so llttlo. At times a convict

possibility of death rather than the cer

A communication from Salt Lake City

of a few years that territory will possess
a railway system extending into nearly
Tlio construction of such a system of
roads would bo tbo very best thing which
could occur for Utah. Colorado's wonderful -
dorful growth since 18SO is duo as much
to the construction of railroads into remote -
mete parts of the states as to any other

Utah is a territory of great natural re-
surcos. It wealth is not confined nlono
to tlio district of which Salt Lake City
is the center. The bouthorn part of the
territory is known to bo rich. There aio
several very prosperous Mormon tattle-
mcnts in the south. Tn diH'erent locali
ties there are gooel mining districts , and
there IB not the least question that the
opening up of the territory by railways
would lead to the development ot mines
and bring Utah prominently forward na
a mineral-producing buclion.
The trunk-line roads nro not the only
onejs which promote the do\elopmont of
n new country. The Union Pacillc hns
for moro than twontvyonrsboon operated
through southern AVyoming , but It bus
not had a great deal to do with tlio de
velopment of that slnlej. What a now
country needs in a great system of branch
roads feeding the trunk lines with the
trafllc of sections which would otherwise
bo entirely cut oil' and whiuh would nisi
enable those boctions to develop their re
sources nud murkut their products. This
is the kind of a system which it seems
Utah will likely ooon secure.
