BOY PHOTO COLLECTOR
STINGS U. P.i RAILROAD
In the 1anpuaBe of the street.
Everali Gerwig of Pittsburgh, Pa, has
been "stringing" the advertising de
partment of the Union Pacific. Some
time ago Everali wrote for literature
on Colorado, asserting that he had
twentv neoole in tow. all of whom
were coming west, and that their!
destination would be somewhere in
Pleased with the nrosoects of se
curing twenty people in one bunch,
the advertising department of the
road tent Everali all kinds of litera
ture, and a little later he wrote again,
asking for pictures. Suspicion was
aroused and an investigation insti
tuted. Then it was learned that
Everali it a boy 10 years of age, and
that instead of heading a colony of
Pennsylvanians, he is gathering a col
lection of western pictures.
