Ichabod Turner s Mission Crook we crooked Cro Olied rang out the so map wicca Iliili voice and tie tall thin Sigme in seedy garments and Fluri dug Liat Sven Cpd to and fro on the Stum Hintlian Licous selected for a Rostrum. All things have gone crooked in this world and i be come to net pm straight to undo the snarls give the Power where it belongs and put men in their Plares. Of he my friends the world is Topsy Turvy the top s at the Bottom and the Bottom s at the top and i be come to turn things right end the o clock whistle had sounded the close of another Day s work at the shops and the men pouring out from the various smoke stained archways paused to listen. It was a Motley group some be daubed with Many colors from the paint rooms some with grim hauls and faces from foundry or machine shop while further Back on the Long platform that extended along the track were gathered that inevitable adjunct of any crowd the boys and a of women some of the latter with children in their arms. The speaker s excitement seemed to deepen As his audience increased. The keen eyes under the old hat dared lightning like glances Here and there he be stimulated wildly and his voice Rose to a still higher pitch. Of he yes look at me i m Ichabod Turner and lie Mission i m sent on is to mend All crookedness and turn this los right end up the men seemed to find a grim pleasure in the Harangue. They laughed us they exchanged comments. Chosen a Good Point to begin at he tack questioned one. I should say so hell have a Tough contract even if he does t extend his Goin to set All things straight it la take a mightier Man than you to do that Job. I wish to Massy he d begin it soon murmured an old woman on the platform As she picked her bundle and trudged on again. The two men looked after her and the elder Shook his grizzled head. Poor soul no doubt things seem crooked enough to her her boy was crushed Between the ears la4 year. Does seem As if somebody might invent a stay to get along with killing fewer Jim Barclay sauntering Down the Long walk stopped beside a Bright Young girl who had p raised for a moment on the outer Edge is the crowd. If that fellow would begin his work by altering the Days and nights a Little or by Means of enjoying them i d be obliged to him he laughed. The girl turned with a Little Start of Surprise and pleasure. Why Jim then a glance at his lunch Basket brought the Swift question you re not going out to ought it s not your i must make it though they say. It s an extra train and they Are Short of men somehow off or disabled. I feel considerable disabled you were out last night and the night a fore and nearly All yesterday. I did t get in to Day unt l afternoon and i was scarcely settled into a comfortable sleep of fore i was called. I m not it to go that s a fact. Don t worry he broke off his sentences abruptly a he saw the Shadow of anxiety on his companion s fair face. It does t happen so often. They re Short you it ought t to happen at All insisted Dell indignantly. I would t then my head would come off at Short notice laughed Jim. We can t afford pretty Dell flushed rosily. She knew so Tell what that meant. There was a Little hot be talked Over and arranged to every detail of its simple furnishing for which the two were planning when Jim slum old obtain his hoped for promotion. No i won t insure any necks tonight but i la take the risk of crushing a few other people s Heads rather than the certainty of losing my own laughed Jim. It s a pity that fellow who is so sure of his mis Ion could t turn my brains right Side up they feel crooked enough. But Don t worry Dell he repeated hurriedly. The crowd began to thin. Hungry men swinging their empty dinner pails presently found the Prospect of supper More alluring than the stranger s promised millennium. Jim looked at his watch and found be had not even rive minutes to spare for a part of the homeward walk with del1. To parted from her with a reluctant Good by and Bhe walked away alone. She had gone but a few Steps however when she turned and looked bad. You la be careful Jim Dot let anything Why Dell he laughed half touched half wonder no. I ought t j to have talked such nonsense. Don t be she smiled in answer and the Cloud slowly faded from he face As she a walked on. A Call extra service j was no cause for Teri oms trouble All these exigencies were so familiar to her. Bell and whistle. Nee Souter nn.4 dig triumphantly i his continent i m ordered and turn Tho on will sex Patch with their always imperative and often unwelcome orders were part of her daily life. Jim would be lir cd and worn out of course. That had happened often and would doubtless happen again but her thoughts turned to pleasanter pictures of the future to arranging More that tiny House with its Dainty rooms which slum old to a very Haven of rest to one who came Home weary. She paused on the Long Iron Bridge and looked Down on the network of tracks below crossing Ami interlacing in a seemingly inextricable tangle. The Gray Twilight of the Short autumn afternoon was already deepening toward night Ano. The headlights of the engines passing and Repass ing As they changed from one track to another shone out brilliantly. Jlon were running Here and there waving their signal lanterns and shouting hoarse orders that to one uni Niti itch Only mingled confusedly with the heavy breathing of the locomotives and the Clanger of Bells. Farther Back looming in Rug ged outlines against the faint Rose of the Western sky were the great shops grim and silent. The 1 rown eyes watching from the Bridge presi Nutly discovered the figure they ought winding its Way in and out among the Rains. He did not look up and the girl smiled at the thought of watching him herself unobserved. Then her face grew grave and Sweet with a parsing fancy that so from their height above the Din and turmoil the unseen Angels looked Down upon our mortal life. Only i suppose All the tangles and bewilderment grow Clear to them As 1 am sure they do not to me she added with a Little sigh. And their watching is of some use while mine cannot help poor he had some need of help As the evening wore on. Though he but dimly realized it. Getting everything in readiness for starting was harder work than usual. There was a Dull pain in his eyes and a throbbing in his temples. This trip s rather rough on you Jim remarked a fireman half questioningly half commiserating by. Gunther Jim laughed faintly. I m stiff and used up but i la get Over it when we re fairly off i when the station with its dim and dancing lights was left behind however and the Long line stretched away straight before him his occupation became but a Mere routine so treacherously familiar that it would scarcely hold his eyes or thoughts. Mechanically he attended to his engine with his mind straying far away from it to Dell and then running oddly into a confused memory of the speaker at the depot until the Swift movement of the polished rods before him seemed the motion of gesticulating arms and the sound in his ears resolved itself into a measured repetition of meaningless words crooked and straight right Side up hello c Airth myself napping i do believe Jim Barclay what Are you about see Here. Bill to his fireman just keep an Eye on me will you the Young Engineer Shook himself looked about him and stood Stilly erect. He whistled a tune vigorously to assure himself that he was wide awake. What a drowsy rocking motion the train had even the Jar and rattle seemed to Lull and Stupey though he stood erect at his pest. He was glad this sort of work was nearly Over for he did not see How the desired promotion could be much longer delayed and then such Calls As this would be fewer. He was looking anxiously Forward to the Day when he. Could carry the longed for tidings to Del. Dear Little girl How her face would brighten what a cozy Happy Home she would make and she said the curtains would to Cost anything and the Hammock on the porch to rest in. Lights queer where the lights came from unless Why yes almost to a station of course. Dell must have put a Bright Light in the window. Alas Bill had climbed Back Over the tender to look after a us peeled hot Box on the after truck. Shriek after shriek of warning from a steam whistle aided Tho hashing signal lights and at last forced their meaning upon the benumbed brain. With a Low cry of horror the engine was reversed but too late to avoid the crash that followed As the two freight trains were piled upon each other in common wreck. What possessed you to run in that fashion Man were you drunk or crazy demanded More than one rough voice As Jim stood by the track. But to Only gazed with blanched face at scene before him and answered them nothing. Fortunately almost miraculously it seemed no one was seriously injured As the morning papers Baid in chronicling the occurrence. Under Tho same glaring headlines they also commended the promptness of in dismissing the Engineer whose criminal Vareles Snesil caused Tho disaster and who As nearly As can to Learned was comfortably sleeping at his pest and so neglectful of All signals these were the to icings that reached Dell instead of the glad word for which she had waited. What they say is True after a fashion said Jim simply and sadly. I was to blame for it and yet i want Fer i was not lit to make the run and i told t Leui Thero was no one to chronicle his years of faithful service or the criminal carelessness if not cruelty which had placed him in such a position but these things Wero Well understood among t e Many workers in that Railroad town and they acknowledged to each other with ready but helpless sympathy that it was rough on poor Bough it surely grew As the Long Days came and went and Tho Hope of reinstatement grew dimmer. All those missing men who could t be found when i needed a Siglo night s rest seem to have turned up once More and they can spare me indefinitely he explained to doll with a pre Teube of jocularity that scarcely covered the bitter Nefcy. The Bravo Little woman tried to Comfort and encourage him though the dancing Light had gone out of her Brown eyes and new Gravo lines were deepening about the Young lips. Tho Little House they had planned seemed so like the shadowy ghost of a dead Hope that neither cared to talk of it any More and indeed Dell s ingenuity i Nond full occupation now in combating the various wild schemes which Jim in his desperation was constantly forming. He had been away to look for employment but business was Dull everywhere at this season and moreover grown up in that Railroad town where All interest and Industry entered in the shops and tracks he had , longed to Tho line from boyhood he j received orders to be immediately in All his efforts like a blighting Frost. So the Bright autumn leaves dropped from the Trees leaving Only Brown and Barren branches the soft Luu a faded from the Hills and the Iron track stretching away Over the Frozen Earth toward the cold tji a sky looked to Dell s sorrowful eyes a Tilting Emblem of the dreary life Road that Lay before her. I m going away to Morrow Jim was saying As they slowly Over the Bridge and Down toward the town. I be shown idiocy enough in waiting Here for any Chance of Justice. I Mem to go As far i St As i can make my Way. And i la come Back when i be some Good word to bring if that time Over it was useless to combat his purpose there was nothing better to offer. Tho girl s Wistful gaze strayed with a dreary persistency to the track again. What a hard narrow Road it a is stretching on to its cheerless goal the far away wintry horizon. Down on the walk by the round House a knot of loungers had gathered i Ichabod Turner s a wanderings had brought him thither again the place seemed to hold some Peculiar fascination for him and to was discoursing on his favorite theme. Suddenly a movement and murmur of excitement ran through the crowd and its numbers were speedily augmented from various quarters of building. Swiftly and unexpectedly the speaker had turned and with a single bound placed himself in the cab of a locomotive that had for a moment been left Unten anted. It s steamed up Oil Oil come out. Of that shouted several voices. But Ichabod laughed hoarsely and waved his Jong arms above his head. I m the Only Man on that can run an engine to take this one and go world right Side up Hurrah two or three persons rushed Forward but he caught up an Iron bar and wielded it so vigorously that they Wero obliged to fall Back. Then like a hash his hand seized the throttle lever and the dangerous Steed he had chosen began to show signs of life. Pull him off Bock the wheels rang out in conflicting orders. But the madman laughed again his wild eyes gleaming like fire and Shook his bar in threatening and Defiance. Touch Hie if you dare i i m sent to set the crooked straight. Here comes Tho millennium Clear the track for the millennium and to was off. Swiftly As an Arrow some one darted through the crowd ran along the track Aud leaped on the engine clinging no one knew How As it moved away. Dell found herself suddenly deserted and could Only move Forward with the others who were following with eyes of mingled admiration and horror the athletic figure clinging and swinging As the Speed increased until it finally forced its Way into the cab. What a terror to be left Loos the Road who can Tell what lie run into before lie can be stopped claimed one with a White face. Jim Barclay 11 manage him Jim la be killed answered distorting voices. Jim s unexpected no Paramo in the cab meanwhile had momentarily confused its Anil who until then had not been aware of his presence. " where did you come from he demanded in suprise. Flew Down panted Jim sent to help you. But what on Earth do you mean by trying to Start the millennium in Broad Daylight Daylight repeated Ichabod bewildered by an Cirne stacks Aud Assurance As fierce As his own. Don t you know to must wait until the stars begin to fall besides we must go Back and Telegraph to All the world to Clear the track for he was improving his companion momentary confusion by gently edging into his place and crowding him Back while he urged the Superior advantages of his own Plain of proceeding. All Tho details of that Brief horrible ride Jim could never clearly recall but with the engine once in his own hands he hold Possession and As soon us it was possible reversed it endeavouring the while to distract the other s attention by a Stream of explanations concerning their joint Mission. A the suggestion of Clearing the track seemed to suit Ichabod s crazed brain and seizing the Cord near him he Clung to it so persistently that the shrieking deafening steam whistle drown Doug All further Eil Orts at conversation and never ceased its terrific Din until they rolled Back into the great Yard. Officers Polico and train dispatchers had been hastily notified Only to find themselves helpless in Tho matter and a line of anxious spectators watched the engine s return. Then discovering for the first time that his project was foiled or Bent upon some new scheme no one could Tell which Ichabod suddenly dropped the Cord and before his companion could surmise his intention leaped to the track. A moment later he was drawn from under the cruel wheels and tenderly lifted. So on doth Tho first lesson to murmured and then All earthly tangles for him were Over and life s rough places grew smooth and Plain. Jim was greeted with congratulations Praise and questions on every Side. That was a Brave deed of yours sir a dangerous undertaking very skilfully planned Aud executed declared an officer of the Road with a congratulatory Shako of tie hand. It far More than cancels that Little misfortune of yours last fall. There is no telling where this thing might have ended but for you. Call around at the of co in the morning will you to shall have something to pay to what does that mean questioned eager Dell in Jim made his Way to her Side. It Means that everything is All right again answered Jim with a Odd smile playing about his lips. Queer How soon a bit of Success can change a great rime into merely a Little misfortune " Tho excitement was Over and Tho Yard slowly settled Back to its Ordinary routine but the Young Engineer and pretty Dell lingered for a last pitying tender glance at Tho still form reverently covered now. For whatever he May have Boen to Tho rest of the world dear Jim for us he fulfilled his Mission said the girl w. Hamilton in our continent. In announcing a visit of to Scotland a scottish Pipor said preparations Are now being made for her reception several tradesmen having i a i the Soudan Slaughter.

Tho legislative Mill has been going two weeks. Nothing hns yet Conio out of it. Tho new members have got in Tho usual quota of Bills for regulating the social and political Economy of the state. It is so always. Thero is no person who feels Tho times so out of joint and everything wrong As Tho member who takes tie scat for Tho first time. To came Here to regulate matters. He was elected on Tho platform. To unloads his pockets in the legislative Hopper and Waits tie slow process of grinding out. The More he sees Aud learns of legislation and the longer he serves the More lie becomes convinced there is too much legislation. J it lie has redeemed his pledge and got in his Bills All the same. This is Tho great mistake made by the people. H is far better to continue a Man in service in the legislature. Experience adds value to his service and it is a fact that the fewest measures for legislation come from those longest in service. Stun Over the list of live Hundred Bills on me and you will Sec the name of senator Marrale less than any other member of the legislature. To has served sixteen years. Hundreds of Bills upon every subject Are Worth less be Carifo impracticable and yet they require Tho expenditure of time which is Money to dispose of them. With extended practical experience they would never have been presented. Were Tho House like the scant composed largely of old members the sessions c uld to shortened Twenty Days at least at a saving of nearly Ono Hundred thousand dollars to the people. It is hardly Worth the space to give a record of the Bills on file. The most important and on which definite action will be taken Are those on civil rights prohibition insurance school books Coal mining reformatory institutions Aud rail Ronde. There Are three Bills which declare equal rights to nil persons without regard to race color Creed or previous condition of servitude. One of them defines in detail wherein the Law shall apply Public conveyances Public institutions places of amusement hotels and everywhere else that the Public Are admitted. One of Thorn will be adopted. Tho prohibition element is represented by senator j Ronnau and sex 3overiior and senator knit Uusi. The former has a Bill which simply embodies the in Runge of Tho prohibition late lamented amendment. The latter hits an ironclad which prohibits Tho importation manufacture or Sale As a coverage any intoxicating liquor ale Porter wine and Leer under a Prunity of $100 for the Glrst offence the penalty to in create $100 for Cuch subsequent Ottense the offender to to committed until paid and to work on roads or streets. Saloons and club rooms Are declared nuisances and All persons found therein Are Dei mixed violators of the Law. All agents and employe.3 to be deemed equally guilty is print pails. All licenses granted under present in to tease on the passage of the Bill and the fee to be returned pro rata. All licenses granted Afler Tho Date of the presentation of the Bill to be void and the License fee paid to be forfeited. Representative Merrill has a Bill for lie cute Law which provides that a judge of Tho District court May Crant a License to sell liquor ale wine and Beer on petition of Twenty five freeholders Aud Tho giving of a Good and sufficient Bond. To 0  fee for wholesale not Cibb than a gallon. Is soon Lor retail s2.10, which May be increased in cities and towns to St. A wholesale dealer cannot retail. Sale to drunkards or intoxicated persons is prohibit Jed and on notice being a veil by Tho family or Guardi n of a drunk Ned or minor Tho seller is liable to All damage ensuing from such a e. Druggists May dispense liquors for physicians prescriptions without licence but no liquor can be drank on lie premises j no License in a township will Ormil a Sale a within one Mil-1 of a City or town unless a License is obtained i from the a to or town. The Bill decs not apply to wine made in Lown tend sold by tie gallon nor to ale and Beer made in Iowa and sold in the original packages. Senator Donnan s Bill has been recommended by the Senate committee and will be Likely to pass if any Bill does. Hutther nth of representative Holbrook leaves the House a tic. Ilani Blin of Taylor is dangerously ill also of pneumonia and should to die Tho majority would be against prohibition of far Asie known. In both cases elections will be had to fill the vacancies. In Holbrook s District there is a to that an Antl prohibitionist May be elected. His majority was 4ti2, and he was one of the most popular Moo in the county. Taylor county would again tend a prohibitionist so that the matter will not he pushed until late in the session. The demands from All parts of the state for Relief from Tho school Book monopoly is imperative and some measure of Relief will be devised Tho most feasible appears to be Tho appointment of a commission who shall receive bids from publishers on their entire list of books for a term of years when the commission will make a selection and enter into a contract in the name of the state to furnish All books required for use la this state in the Public schools. This plan will break up the Pool which now exists among publishers Aud give to the people books cheaper than the state could make them. The mining Laws will to overhauled and move equity do provision made for miners and Peralo a and also to prevent strikes. A Bill has been prepared by a committee of miners and operators with Tho Mctate minion so color. The railroads Are bombarded on every Sido with some very Radical measures. If half of them prevail Nii Road Stock of Iowa roads will be cheap and dividends mighty Small. Some of them Aro decidedly Cranky to say the h ast and remind Ono of the crack of a Tim Tiger s whip. They Wourl fail in any deliberative body because they Are not founded in Justice. The diversity of opinion and multiplicity of Bills disclose a unanimity of sentiment which will probably defeat any Radical measures. It is Safe to Ray however that companies will to required to erect and maintain depots at All Points where roads Cross each other. Some measures May be adopted regarding pooling and nit is at Competti Lvcas Points protecting contiguous stations. Passes to Public officers May be Cut of but probably not though it is a very easy thing As with Artemus Ward to Sacri Uco All your wife s relations. The cur would not. Al Lect.

The question at Issue is purely one of Law and with which a jury had nothing to do. It is whether or not Tho 8 preme ledge an incorporated body can do business in this state and assess a body incorporated under state Law to pay Izmir Nncy losses in another state and also i Provo it of Tho right to use its corporate name. Tho decision of Tho supremo court will be waited with interest by the Large membership throughout the country. Another important cask. which involves the Validity of every Bank organized under state Law. Tho creditors of the Bloom Flold Bank sued Tho stockholders for double Tho amount of Stock held bar them under Section 0, article 8 of Tho Constitution. The question is whether or not this Section applies to Banks of Issue or a l Banks. It says nil Banks but its connection with Tho preceding Section leads of ambiguity. If the Suprono court Doc Idos it includes All Banks then another suit against the some stockholders will Como up in which it will to claimed Tho incorporation Law of the state is void for tie reason it was not submitted to Tho people in acc Ordaneo with Section 5, of Tho same article 8 of Tho Constitution and being void Tho Bank corporation becomes a Mere business partnership and Tho.
