C.iiru Agent Eelatea Etw Swede Came to
Time on Damages,
GAVE TQ ROAD THAT KILLED HIS COW
Other Varaa jipraag hy Travelers W ha
Uiagc Areaad Hotel Labhlea
Dsrlsg the Mestfal Saa
A former claim ssrent and damage ad
juster of the Northern Pacific railway, at
a local hotel, told of one of his experiences
In North Dakota. He was sent out to set
tle a claim presented by a Swede for the
loss of a cow that had been run over by
a special train, on which were a number
of the big officials of the road.
The aecurity of our posltlong was largely
gauged by the frlctionles and economical
manner In which we could settle thess
claims," aaid the agent. "There wa a lot
of them occurring and the drain on the
claim department was no little figure. 1
reached the Swede's horn and was author
lsed to settle for not to exceed 175. The
cow was probably not worth 310, but ths
road wanted to make friends of the people
along the line, and we did not object to
paying about 1.900 per cent in excess of
the real value of the stock killed. As
soon as I told the Swede that I had
come to settle the matter he seemed a
trifle uneasy and I thought I was up
against It hard. Finally I said to him that
It waa an extremely dangerous thins; to
permit his cows to run at large and get
on the railway tracks, as they might de
rail a train and cause a number of pas
sengers to be killed, and then he would
have a bis; bill of damages to pay. The
Swede conceded that all this was possible
and Intimated that he had not looked at it
that way. He further stated that the cow
was a foolish cow and that he had stoned
her oft the trsck lots of times and that
he waa sorry that she had caused the road
so much trouble. I asked him about how
much he Thought we could settle for. think
ing that I was golrg to get off on about a
$M proposition. He went out and consulted
with his wife for a few moments and fin
ally came back and handed me $5, saying
that this was all the money they had and
that he would watch his cows In the future.
"Did I accept the oT Well. yes. I sent
my report and resignation in with the $5.
"Did the road accept It? Tea. and what
galled me worse. It nccepted my resigna
tion, too. But that's the way with a cor
poration, you never know when you ar
doing them a favor."

CHICAGO, Sept. 27. The Woman' Na
tional golf tournament, which will open
on the Chicago Golf club links at Whea
ton. 111., next Tuesday, to select a cham
pion to succeed Mrs. Charles T. Stout,
promises to be the keenest contest among
women in the history of the came in the
I'nited Slates. Nearly all of the slx.y
three players entered for the contest have
arrived and are putting In hard work to
get In shape for the tournament. Ths
course Is In excellent condition and the p e
ilmlnary practice of the competitors indi
cates that several records will be smashed
before the close of the tournament Sstur
day afternoon. Plavers from Pittsburg,
Boston, Philadelphia and St. Louis, lo-
getner wun the local force, kept the links
"I had a r.tlghbor over in Illinois a good
many years ago," said Henry Martin of
Decatur, at the Taxton, "that was a horse
doctor, and his wife was one of those
nervous, fldgity women that are always
ready to be offended and have a good cry
over any apparent lack of appreciation
their husbands may have of them. Doc
Rose thought the world snd all of his wife
and wouldn't Intentionally offend her for
the world. Ella, that was her name, on
one occasion made Doc a 'robe de nuit' and
she had spent considerable time on It. When
Doc tried It on he found that It was ma
terially deficient In length and said to her:
It Is all right. Ella, except that you have
not made It long enough.' Mrs. Rose was
mad In a minute and snapped out ut him:
'Well. I can tell you one thing Doctor Rose,
and that Is it will be long enough before
I make you another one.' And she went
off and had a good cry. There was a very
good double entendre in the way she put
It, and it tickled Dr. Ros Immensely. He
came down town snd told of the Incident,
but he got the story scrrwhat mixed, arid
In telling It stated that she had said: 'It
will be a long while before she would make
me another one.' Doc'a auditors rather
sympathlxed with the wife and observed
that they saw nothing very funny or re
markable In the story. Poor Doe never
could get the story just right, though ha
tried It a doxen times, and finally consoled
himself that It was funny the wsy his wife
put It. but his friends couldn't appreciate
a good double entendre."
"Over at Jefferson City some years ago
I was stopping at a hotel liberally patron
ised by legislators, and among them was
an old fellow from down in the Pilot Knob
section," said Ed Waddell, a Missouri com
mercial ptlgtlm. "This old chap sat at the
