of the small aum of about ll.&O.nnO. Tha

about KuO.Ouo, while the total gross earn

The net earnings per mile, however, were
only Increased about 3U0 a mile. This was
due to the Increase In the cost of operating
and to the payment of taxes, which for

The earnings shown Include all earnings

found by deducting expenses of operation
and taxes from gross receipts. The road
claims they cannot be taken to represent

Teople down here are sighing and sighing,
and some patiently and some Impatiently
spend most of their time around the gov
ernor's office waiting for lightning to strike
and the axe to fall. But there Is nothing
doing. The governor is spending most of
his time attending board meetings and
looking after the details of his office, and
from all outward appearance he is less
concerned about dropping heads Into the
baskets and putting new heads on depart
ments than anyone else. In some Instances
the delay haa been caused by persons to
whom the executive has offered positions
wanting time to think the matter 'over. A
cumber of applicants, despairing of getting
a state Job, it is said, have gone back to
work, and If a lot more would do that.
It la understood, the governor would be
saved disappointing a whole lot of people.

could scarcely move, and to stoop was
an utter impossibility. To add to my
