Is more to a proposition like rhat than
one would at first blush think for,
very much more. Tiuie wero things
ihat we had never considered but
I'll tell you aboiW. that as we no alontf.
The reason f-ir oi want ins1 to
change the direction of Jackson fitn-et
was because of the sheer monotony
of having It run north and Bouth
without making; much headway in ei
ther direction. It is true it did make
a little jog In another direction when
it hud to pass Mr. Merman's barn,
and for a while our hope beat high
only to be dashed to the ground again
for no sooner had It cfrcled the barn
than it went off again in a southerly
direction like a northern zephyr and
got lost somewhere out by
where the base ball park
used to he Then It could
n't go timet farther north even with
all of Mr. Creason's Alaskan expe
rience brought to bear upon It, lie
can't get it over the hill that still
blocks the way.
"So with those things In mind and
the forever monotony of seeing the
McClallen House bug make its way
up Jackson and down Cass, we
thought It best to change it.
"We had arranged to change it
with the beginning of the New Year,
as it would probably cauro less dis
turbance dining the general melee.
And as the streets are usually desert
ed at night It would ho far easier to
do when Old Man Time was hnndlng
the Little Fellow the pass key to the
j front door.
"Whita wo awaited thn birth of the
glad New Year, the little bunch of us
that could get awav fron our work
iraihered within the slnub's nf even
ing at the club, and wnilo we waited
we consorted with kings und nueens
and kept ourselves awake with va
rious trials of skill and strength one
man held a full house he was the
uost envied prize winner of (ho even
'ng. At 12 o'clock we hnd all the
vood. even to tho Inst chip, put away
when ths bells rang merrily.
"This war, our signal for changing
Tnckson street, around the compass
and every man hastened to the sta
tion assigned him. At the crack of
a pistol every man bent to his task.
At first the street moved very slowly
but. once loosened it was an easy mat
ter to put It wheie we wanted it. At
first we turned it so that the North
Jackson end headed for tho Soldiers'
Home, but much 10 out' annoyance the
Deer Creek bridge would only reach .
half way across the IJmpnua. For
tunately thosp whri Were crossing and
fell off In the middle of the river

"Didn't got wet?" our correspond
ent interrupted In surprise.
"Why. no. ' was the answer 'How
could they in a dry town?"
Then hp con'i' d: "So.. of the
bunch met so- i - f the old veterans
going out to i : Home and they ask
ed the old bo; s if they were not sur
prised to see tho streets turning
round. They pnid no. they were usc-mI
to It sometimes the street would
fly up and hit them In the face.
"You ought to have seen the fel
lows that wo sent out to guard the ex
treme ends of thy street they com"
in all covered with mud and dirt.
They said tho street went so fast that
they were dracged along much after
the manner of a can to a dog's tail.
Oh! it was a great time, everybody
"Hut the street is lust the snme
this morning as it. always was," en
representative remarked tentath -iv
"Sure, we had ' 1: It back. You
see there were so - i: things we hnd
not counted on. Mm who got in the
hnbtt of rolllii" ih . n bill home of

almost near beer flowing well you
can imagine what the consequences
would have been had we left it like
that, so we had to change poor old
Jackson back as she ran In the days
of her youth."
Then thP One Who Was There
started away, he said over his shoul
der "Say, It was great; you really ought
to have been there. Jackson Ukv
