HARVESTERS RETURNING TO
RAILROADS FOR WORK,
Farmers Blgper Than Corporations a
Part of the Year Visa Versa the
Rest of the Time Whirr of Header
After several months of niBh of
farm work the railroad companies are
ngatn able to pet men to do the work
which was suddenly dropped nt the
bslnnliiR of harvest because every
man. who earns his money by the
sweat of his brow, rushed Into the
harvest field because he could fiet
better wages there than on railroads.
Impossible to Get Men.
It has been Impossible for the rail
road companies to get men to keep
their road work up durlus the harvest
season just passed. Hardly a day
passed that the O. 11. & X Company
was not bidding; for men to work on
section crows, for bridge work or
fencing right of way. Good wages
were offered but men preferred to re
main In the harvest Held rather than
work on the railroads. Now that har
vest Is practically closed the railroad
companies will have no trouble to get
men in fnct they will be overrun
with npplicntions for places at any
kind of work.
In referring to the utter impossibil
ity of the W. & C. It. company to get
men to work on their line during
harvest season. General Manngor and
Vice-President Joseph McCabc said to
the Walla Walla Union:
"We are getting the section crews
on the line of the Washington & Co
lumbia River railroad recruited back
to their normal strength nfter the
Drop All Work.
"We have found from experience,"
said Mr. McCabe. "that when headers
begin to whirr in the fields we might I
as well conclude we have all the road
work done that we Intend doing forj
the next two months. So we begin
ahead of time and when harvest be-;
gins we have our road put in the best'
possible condition and there Is little!
to be done. All that Is necessary theu i
Is the maintenance of a forre of I
track patrollers to keep watch for pos-
Bible Incidental necessities in the way ,
of repairs. The section hands drop.
off one at a time and go into the Har
vest iields. There Uioy work longer
hours and get almost no better wnges.
Treat Farmers Right.
"During this time we make no effort
to hire men to take their places as
to do so would be folly. If we tried
to hire men we could do so without
trouble, but they would stay with us
only long enough to get transporta-j
tion to the place where we wisueu
them to work. After the train stop
ped and let them off they would swing
over the fence and take across coun
try for the nearest harvesting outfit,
certain to obtain work. .The railroad
company would be out the price of a
ticket and no one would be any better
off. W might raise wages and get,
men, tut this would not be fair to
the farmers who must have workmen.
If we advance our prices beyond
those in the harvest fields the mana
gers of harvesting outfits would be
compelled to do the same and there
would be no advantage to us in that.
Besides this the farms are adjacent to
our lino and we owe much to those
who own and operate them. If we
can assist the farmer It 1b our duty
to do s).
Rush Things In Spring.
"So we work as hard as we can dur
ing the spring and get everything In
shape for the harvest season. Then
we let our men go harvesting.
More Now Than Needed.
"Now that harvest is over the sec
tion hands are beginning to drift back
and apply for Jobs. There are many
applicants and we can afford to
choose. Each year we are thus ena
bled to recruit up strong crews for
the winter. But there are two months
in the year when the farmer is bigger
than the railroad company."

Mudd was a physician, nnd It was to
his bouse that Booth hud ridden on the
night of his great crime. There his
broken leg had been set, and there he
had been secreted for one day. The
doctor wns nn educated mnn or refined

quite recovered from his surprise that
any one should llud fault with him for
setting n broken bone for n stranger.
He always asserted that he did not
know Booth and was not nware lit the
time that Booth hnd committed n
crime. But Mudd had been an ardent
secessionist He was accordingly sen
tenced to imprisonment for life.
It was n hard fate to be called upon
for professional services by n wounded
desperado and then narrowly to escape
hanging for It The trial and sentence
were tt terrible blow, from which M udd
never recovered. He had left n devoted
wife nt his home in .Maryland, and his
mental sufferings were so severe thnt
he seemed always on the verge of In
finity. He had nt first been put to
work with n wheelbarrow; but. Inning
never done any manual labor, be was
rapidly fulling under the combined
physical and mental strain. For this
reason 1 directed that he be transferred
to the prisoners hospital ns nurs".
There he made himself exei-jdlngly
useful, and there he might have re
mained had not his lioiuesleUiieBS In an
evil hour overcome his judgment. While
n ship lay at the wburf he contrived to
get aboard and secrete himself In the
coal bunkers. He was or course dis
covered, nnd then he learned what lie
did not know before, that no ship wiib
allowed to sail until It was iiseiTlitini'd
that every' prisoner was In IiIh place.
