Bat ti D&y Before H Retire j He
Performs Most Remarkable
Old Jim, en of the Union Faclflo'a
moat faithful employea.. hu been slated
for retirement cm pension and ths chance
re that while Jim will not draw any
money from the pension fund he will
lira a Ufa of ease during hta remaining
Jim la 1 years old and has heen eon
tlntiensly In the employment of the Union
Paeifio during the last ten years. Jim
setoff a horse, he 'does not have to con
form to aome of the conditions required
of men and women who go onto the oom-
paay pension rolls.
The retirement of Jim Is mainly due to
the fact that the work that he has heen
doing during the last ten years In the
future is going to he done by an automo
bile. In the past Jim's work has been
to haul the Union Pacific mall wagon
between the headquarters building and
tha depots. Jim knows the details of hla
duties as well ss his driver, Ed Howk. as
evidenced by his performance Friday
Jim's last mail delivery from the head
quarters building to the Union station,
week days. Is made at o:46 o'clock In the
afternoon. At - least that Is the time
when he and hla driver should leave the
building. Friday afternoon he was at hla
past of duty at the appointed hour to
kep hla date with his driver. The driver
was In . the building and waa not In a
hurry, but Jim was. lie remained at the
curb until S:C6 o'clock, when nex seemed
to realise that b had to get started If he
faught a :W o'clock train to deliver his
mil. Without waiting longer. In his
teeth ha picked up the leather strap to
which wsa attached a ten-pound Iron
weight, turned around and down Dodge
street, at a . slow trot, started for the
depot. Arriving there ha waited the usual
length of time required to onload the
sail fftrai the wagon, again picked up
hla weight and left for the stable down
an Seventh street, hear tha smelter.
At tha stable tha hostler, knowing that
at waa time when Jim ahould have fin
ished bis work of tha day, unhitched him
and turned him Into hla stall, where he
was given hla customary allowance.
Ta tha meantime Ed Howk, the driver,
had gathered up. hla mall at tha bead
quarters, but when ha emerged from the
building oould not flnf Jim. He loaded
tha sacks onto a street car and at tha
Station learned that Jim had been there,
arriving and departing on schedule time.
Knowing tha habits of the horse, Howk
went to the stable, where he found the
horse, he apparently feeling that ha had
performed his duties and waa entitled to
tha rest that followed.

"Vulcan Coke" is the Sort of Fuel a
WOMAN really LIKES to handle!
Women like "Vulcan Coke" because it is absolutely
clean, easy to handle, kindling very quickly. Men
like it because it represents a smaller expenditure of
money than hard coal. Think of a fuel that gives
forth no smoke; having no clinkers; leaving very
little ash; one that holds fire all night, and you have
an idea of "Vulcan Coke. ' It is a clever by-product,
made from mixture of the propor sorts of coal; the
results accomplished by it would have been deemed
magic a century ago; today it's what we expect of
! science. Try it and know its scope.

Wa ahould drink, before breakfast, a
glass of real hot water with a teaepoon
