I Tonng Girl Reared in Luxnrjr Now
Makes Her Home in a Freight Car,
j While Her Husband Works Upward
as a Railroader.
"Love in a Box Car" is the title of the
romantic drama iu real life which is
now occupying the attention of Kansas
people. Fort Scott has had thrilling
I melodramas at the town opera house,
but none to compare in interest with
I the Hammond-Barrett '-Love in a Bos
j Car."
I Briefly it Is the story of young Char-
ley Hammond, who married a Miss
j Barrett, only daughter of a millionaire
! mine owner of Butte. Mont. Hammond
j Is the son of R. R. Hammond, general
superintendent of the Fort Scott and
Memphis Railroad. The couple mar
ried without the consent of anybody
who holds the Barrett-Hammond for
tunes in charge. They are now living
happily in box car No. 12,118, and Ham
mond is boss of a work train on the
Memphis road.
"Hammond'U rise," say the men on
the road. "He's got the grit and he's
got the knack." And young Ham
mond Is working with the vim of a man
who has made up his mind to succeed.
He Is alert to the possibilities of his
job, and has already won one promo
tion. Meanwhile the families of both frown
on the young people, and there is every
evidence that Hammond will need all
his pluck and his courage. Mrs. Ham
mond wears a trousseau made in Paris,
reads the latest novels, and haughtily
refuses to return the calls of the aris
tocracy of Fort Scott. Hitherto she
has had only to wish for things, and if
money could buy them they were hers.
The box car in which the Hammonds
are living has seen hard service. A
coat of dull red paint has served to con
ceal some of its scars and patches. The
floor is covered with 25-cent matting
in the drawing-room end, and 20-cent
oilcloth on the kitchen and dining-room
end. The dainty slippers of Mrs. Ham

Story of Romantic Marriage.
The Hammonds were married at a
fashionable hotel in Hot Springs, Ark.
He was 24, gay, jolly and thoughtless,
depending upon the generosity of a
wealthy father to keep the wolf out of
the front yard. She was 20, pretty, im
petuous and self-willed. They had met
at Hot Springs just a year before. She
was staying then at the Park Hotel
with her parents, dazzling everybody
with her exquisite toilets and superb
jewels, the gifts of her devoted father.
Young Hammond was then recovering
from an injury sustained in a runaway
while employed as an operator at a
small Missouri town on his father's
railroad. His father had put him there
to "tone him down," he said. He began
paying attentions to Miss Barrett, but
his advances were not encouraged by
her family. They snubbed him and
made their objections very plain. Ham
mond laughed and said that he was
courting the girl and not the family.
If it came to a question of money and
position the Hammonds did very well,
he thought, probably as well as the
Miss Barrett alone failed to share the
prejudices of her family. Young Ham
mond was handsome and clever and
athletic, and she fell in love with him.
The family finally consented to the
match and the bride's trousseau was
ordered from Paris by cable. Prepara
tions were made for an elaborate wed
ding and the fashionable society of Hot
Springs was bidden to the affair. A
few days before the date set for the
wedding young Hammond quarreled
with the Barretts, and rumor had It
that the match was broken off. But It
was not only the fashionable cere
mony was dispensed with. The young
people went to another hotel, and it is
said were married in defiance of pater
nal authority. At first the couple took
up their residence at Kansas City and
spent a few weeks there. Then mat
ters began to look dubious. Bread and
cheese and kisses are all right for late
suppers, but palates accustomed to
filets mignons, French peas, and straw
berry shotcake crave heartier proven
der. Kansas City wondered what
would happen, when one day young
Hammond disappeared. There was
talk of reconciliations, and next he ap
peared in the garb of a practical rail
road man as straw boss of a section
gang in the yards at Fort Scott.
To the further astonishment of the
400 of Kansas City and Fort Scott, Mrs.
Hammond accompanied her husband.
They took apartments in a fashionable
quarter, went to the theater and social
functions of various sorts evenings,
while the young husband, in working
clothes and broad-rimmed laborer's hat,
honestly worked all day. Nobody wore
such costly costumes as the wife of the
section hand of the Kansas City, Fort
Scott and Memphis Railroad Company,
and at afternoon teas, receptions and
card clubs the devotion of the Ham
monds was the popular theme for
weeks. Many women of the highest
standing called upon Mrs. Hammond,
but she, through entbarrassmeut or ec
centricity, acknowledged few of these
attentions. Mrs. Hammond appeared
to be under the wing of a social leader
of the town, and in response to her
kindly suggestions a half-dzen young
women of Fort Scott's upper crus;
called one day on the bride at her hotel.
She was lounging in one of her ex
quisite Paris tea gowns and reading
the latest novels. She sent down word
that she was "too weary to see any
body." Since then the upper-crust
young women who called have had a
tired feeling at the mention of young
Mrs. Hammond.
While this was apparently merely a
caprice, it created a sensation locally,
and the recent announcement in one of
the newspapers that the Hammonds
had gone to live in a box car was grati
fying in the extreme to those who felt
The box car runs over the division be
tween Fort Scott and Memphis wher
evet there is any repairing to be done.
The Hammonds' meals are furnished
by the regular cook with the work
train, and are very plain. Hammond,
however, seems cheerful and indus
trious. His young wife holds her head
high, wears her imported gowns, reads
the latest novels, and only to her inti
mates says from her heart: "We mar
ried for love, you know."
From section boss ycting Hammond
has already risen to the management of
a train of thirty men. Promotion did
not bring more extravagant habits. The
Hammonds still live in the car and are
apparently contented.
Webster Did Not Propose to Square His
Account a Fourth Time.
Daniel Webster was notoriously care
less in business matters. He did not
seem to know the value of money, and
scattered it about with a lavish hand
when he had it and borrowed it when
he could. An incident illustrating the
tlrst mentioned trait of his is related.
On one occasion a man presented a bill
to him for payment.
"Why," said Webster, "I have paid
that bill before."
The neighbor assured-tim that he
was mistaken.
"All right, then; call again in the
morning and I will settle with you."
As soon as the man was gone Web
ster called his sou Fletcher and told
him to look over his papers and see if
he could not find a receipted bill. To the
surprise of both, two receipted bills
were found, showing that the bill had
been paid twice. Webster put the re
ceipts in his pocket and said nothing.
In the morning the neighbor returned
for the money. Webster took his seat
under the old elm and ordered Wright
to bring out the decanter. Filling the
glass to the brim, he handed it to the
man and told him to drink. Webster
then began:
"Mr. Blank, do you keep books?"
The man assured him that he did not.
"Then I would advise you to do so,"
said Webster, and, pulling one of the
receipts from his pocket, handed it to
The man was covered with confusion,
while Webster continued:
"And while you are about it you had
better get a bookkeeper who under
stands double entry!" at the same time
handing him another receipt.
"Now," said Webster, "I am going to
pay this bill just once more, but I as
sure yon upon my word of honor that
I will not pay it the fourth time:"
Queer hevice for Gambling.
"The queerest gambling device that I
ever saw was a check perforator," said
J. H. Irons of the United States mar
shal's office. "I went into a downtown
bank not long ago at the noon hour to
serve a paper on the president. There
was a board meeting on in a back
room. I noticed all of the clerks in, a
bunch playing some game, and I went
over to see what it was. They had one
of those revolving check perforators
with numbers on it from 0 to 9. One
man was spinning and acting as 'bank
er,' while the others were laying bets
on the numbers. They were operating
on the old wheel-of-fortune system. I
got so deeply interested that I forgot
all about the paper I had to serve until
there was a sudden scattering of the
group and a disappearance of the per
forator and the cash on the board. I
turned and saw the president. When
he entered the banking room every
clerk was busy at his desk." Pittsburg

It Is often asserted that the labor

tact the earliest strike dates back to

three centuries ago. Pharaoh was
building a new .temple of Thebes. The
masons received very little cash, but a
quantity of provisions, which the con
tractors thought sufficient, was handed
to them oh the first of each month.
Sufficient or not, they mostly ate it be
fore the time had elapsed. On one oc
casion many of them had nothing left
quite early in the month, so they
marched to the contractor's house, be
fore which they squatted and refused
to budge until justice was done. The
contractor persuaded them to lay their

so all went well for that month.
But the same state of things recurred
by the middle of the next and for some

conferences took place, but the men
ieclined to do a stroke until they were
given another supply of food. They
declared the clerks cheated them, used
false weights and so forth, familiar

not complying with their demands,
they marched to the governor of the

and he tried to get them to return to

no use and they insisted on having

drew up an order for corn on the public
granary and the strike was at an end.

Barrister and Solicitor.
Lawyers in England are divided into
two great classes counsellors or bar
risters, and attorneys or solicitors. The
counsellors or barristers, as these terms
Imply, confine themselves to the actual
trial and argument of cases in open
court, and to consultations with attor
neys or solicitors who represent the
clients. It is contrary to professional
etiquette for a barrister to confer or
consult directly with his client. The
attorneys, or solicitors, as they are all
now styled, see the client, take his
statement, gather the facts, and put it
all down in writing in what is called
"the brief." The brief is then handed
by the solicitor to the barrister, with
his retaining fee, and thereupon the
barrister and solicitor confer; the bar
rister gives his advice and opinion, and
if the case goes to trial he does all the
work in court, such as examining and
cross-examining witnesses, and argu
ing or summing up the case before the
court or jury. The solicitor does not
speak in court at all.

heartlessness of the gods.
Oldest Manufacturing Industry.
The oldest manufacturing industry in
Great Britain is that of flints and flint
locks, which has been carried on since
the beginning of the fifteenth century,
If not farther back still, at the Ling
heath mines, Brandon, on the borders
of Norfolk and Suffolk. The flints are
all made by hand, being placed on the
operator's knee and chipped with a
hammer to the proper shape. Oi
course, a number of. these flints ar
used for fire-making, being principally
used in countries like Spain and Italy,
where the duties on ordinary matches
and wax matches are so high as to con
vert them into luxuries.

to engage in any housework after their
hours of labor. The reason is lest their
hands should become coarse and unfit

Magnetic Character.
While there is any iron of true man

Therefore it is that Christ takes the

would make us in our measure magnets
