cost data, covering operation show
a cut ot one-third in hauling expense.
General Manager II. K. Brooks states.
Maintenance costs on the $155,000
investment represented have not been
completely .forked out as yet, due to
the short length ot time that the
new system has been in use.
Included in general cost reduction
is the fact that by piling from tho
cars, instead ot from tho ground,
larger piles are possible, few
er aro needed, and that in con
sequence the yard area has been re
duced 2C per cent. As the lumber
is no longer rolled oft on the ground
before piling, there Is less breakage,
and practically no lumber is soiled
In muddy weather.
Hauling Efficiency Feature
Under Ujc old system in which the
roll off wagons were used, two
horses pulled one wagon, with a load
of 2200 feet. The tracks make it pos
sible for one horse to draw as high
ns five cars loaded with 2500 feet
The yard .distribution plan now in
use required the laying of 13 miles
of new 20 pound rails, 500 electri
cally welded split switches and cross
overs, all mvltches made to conform
to a standard curve. The track was
all laid by experienced railroad men.

Though the KugllJli were e.xpcctln;
his death nt any moment nud had made
every preparation to have word trans
mitted from St. Helena to Kngland
with nil possible dispatch, It wns not
until July 4, that the news reached
London, having been brought thereby
the sailing vessel Heron. In ncccr-
dance with the spirit of the times,
the message ,wns not glum out on the
arrival of the vessel, but was llrst con
veyed to the colonial otllce, an act
which required approximately two
hours In Itself.
July 4. 1S21, fell on Wednesday.
On Friday, July 0, the news reached
Paris. Messengers were dispatched
from Paris to Oermnny, where the
newspapers commented on the death
of "General llonnparte" for the first
time on July 1-, sixty-eight days after
the event had taken place. And this
notice was In a paper published nt

The Vosslsche Zeltung, founded In
1701 and then, as now, the leading
German dally, contained no notice of
Napoleon's death until July T4, and
then It merely copied the London

tho provinces, regardless of their
station In life, received the news much
later. It wns not conveyed to Goethe,
then living at Weimar, until the very
last of July. He received it In a
letter bearing a black seal.
DEVOTED TO BRITISH CROWN
People of the Island of Jersey Have
for Centuries Been Proud of
There Is no part of the king's do
minions which 1ms shown a more ac
tive devotion than the Island of Jer
sey. The true Jerseyman still regards
the king ns the successor of the dukes
of Normandy. Jersey elected to re
main under the English crown In the
reign of John, when the rest of Nor
mandy reverted to France.
It supported the Royalist cause dur
Jngjhe Civil war and harbored Charles
Upvhen he was In exile; It banished
Victor Hugo because of some slighting
remarks of his about Queen Victoria,
and during the late war It passed Its
own military service act, for which
there was very little need.
Moreover, not once jior twice In this
rough Island story has armed In
vasion by the French been success
fully resisted. The last occasion was
In 1781, when the Jerseymen, although
surprised and outnumbered and desert
ed by their own governor, who was
preparing to capitulate, defeated the
enemy In a most sanguinary battle,
fought In the roynl square of St
Heller. London Mall.
Plant Juice for Flih Bait.
Late In the dry season, when the
rhers are low In the heart of Africa,
the Gwarl, who Inhabit the central
Soudan, set out on prolonged Ashing
expeditions. The natives who live on
the banks of the rivers ure proficient
fishermen, taking great pride In their
work, but the village Gwarl nro not
very sporting In their methods. They
go out for the final results rather
than for the pleasure of the sport.
They pour the Juice of locust tree
IKxIm Into the pools, to which the
streams have shrunk, und this causes
the fish to leap out of the water.
Wildly they leap, flopping out on the
dry river bottom as often as not, but
the excited natives do not wnlt for the
fish to catch themselves. They lenn
over the shallow water, finding great
delight In snatching the leaping fish
as they flash from the river.
This custom of using the "Jump
Juice" seems to have been handed
down from time Immemorial among
these strange Africans.
"Howdy, Gap!" saluted an acquaint
ance, halting his team lu the big road.
"Hop In and go to Tumllnvllle with me.
I hear tell that the women of the Civil
ity league, or whatever they call It,
have noruted that they are going to
begin cleaning up the town today.
Mought as well see what comes off."
"Much oblceged, Zeke, but I reckon
not," replied Gap Johnson of Rumpus
Itldge. "Some fellers from Possum
Flat rid in one day when I wns there
a couple ot weeks ugo nnd started to
clean up the town. I'm sorter getting
along In years nnd hain't as sooplo ns
I onco was, nnd In the course of the
anecdote I got my back sprained ami
my nose skinned right sharply. If the
women start any trouble the Lord only
Knows what would happen to me.

I'd go to Mount I'lzgy, whur nuth'n'

Baby Accorded Privilege.
Captain Vldnl, of the itcumshlp
Canada, which docked at Providence,
It. L, wired his superiors In Mar
seilles that a baby boy who was born
aboard the vessel during the passage
from France had been named In honor
of the steamer, Augustu Cunadn Pera
I.'azar, Tho officials extended to the
little fellow the lifelong privileges of
tho boat, so whenever Canada wishes
to visit France he may do. so as a
