A Railroad Man's Prayer.
An old railroad worker was con
verted and being present at a meet
ing in which there were many in
I ii l i i
onirics, lie was called to lead in
prayer. He hesitated a momenl ami
then with trembling lips, but clear,
resounding voice, lie said, reverent
ly: "Oh Lord, now that I have
flagged thee, lift up my feet from
the rough road of life and plant
them safely on the deck of the (rain
of salvation. Let me use the safety
lamp known as prudence, make all
the couplings with a strong link of
thy love and let my hand lamp lie

keep all the switches closed that
lead off on the sidings, especially
those with a blind end. Oh Lord;
if it lie thy pleasure, have every
semaphore block along the line skow
the whole light of hope, that I
may make the run of life without
stopping, and Lord, give us the ten
commandments tor a schedule and
when I have finished the run on
schedule time, pulled into the great
dark station of death, may thou, the
superintendent of the universe, say,
"Well done, thou good and faithful
servant, come and sign the pay-roll
and receive your check for eternal

A JAUNT IN KANSAS.
"Saturday, July 7th, I went to
Newton, Kansas, and from there to
Putnam, Kansas, where I met Mich
ael Shamhacher. and So worm Bo .v-
resox and tlif Howell family. All
seined to be prosperous. They have
good crops. I Devi r saw such good
wheat. They have an iinnu use crop
id corn and oats is good too. I spent
several days there. Then Sownrro
Bowersox took metoHalstead,where
1 saw John, Robert and Michael
Droese and took supper with Abra
ham Hassinger, where we were roy
ally entertained, after which we re
turned to Putnam, N'exl day I
went to Newton, called on Dr. on
rad's sons, who have a nice drug
store and put up at Hotel Newton
1 luring my stay I siwmyold friend,
I lenry Henier, county commmission-
er of Harvey county.
"Thursday evening, July 13, at
10:30, I left Newton on the A. T.
& St. Fe Ry tfoing via ofTopeka
for Atchinaon, where I arrived In
day at 7 a. m., stopped at the By
ruin, took in tnc town, wmcn is an
active one, a good business place and
one of the oldest towns in the est.
I left Atohinson on the Burling
ton (V: BIO. lor rails l it v, .Net)., a
town of 1000 or 5000 people, when
I spent the Sabbath. This town
seems to have a very prosperous fu
ture. There ib surrounding it a very
productive country and is one of tin
best I have ever seen. I visited the
Indian reservation, consisting of 50,-
000 acres which the government
owns but give.o the free use to the
red man. The Indians are very in
dolent. They do not farm it, but
rent it at $i per acre lor others to
farm. The government gives an
nually the sum ot $50 to every man,
woman aud child in the reservation.
From here I took the B. & M. for
Lincoln, the capital of the state of
Nebraska, a place with which you
are familiar. I stopped at the Lin
coln. It is the best hotel iu the city,
where I waa given the best of enter
tain ment. I spent Monday, July 1G,
in Lincoln and met A. K. Gift, B.
Parks, E. P. Leonard, Homer Bur
kett and M. W. Folsom, the last
three ot' whom are prominently
identified with the Central Nebraska
Building and Loan Association. I
consider them excel lent men who
arc doing a nice thriving business.

I took dinner with him at the Aber

reached Pierre, the capital of South
Dakota and stopped at the Locke
Hotel, which has a swimming pool
supplied by a hot water spring with
water claimed to have medicinal vir
tues. It is a booming town sup
plicd with natural gas. There are
121 miles from Huron to Pierre and
it is a great cattle country. It is
good for nothing but raising cattle.
Every few miles on both sides of the
railroad tor the entire distance herds
of cattle consisting of :',()( to 400
head could be seen. Pierre is siin

A GREAT PICTURE OF BIRDS.
One of the Greatest Picture; of Record
to be Given Away Free.
It would seem impossible, in view
ot the many successes scored by
"The Philadelphia Sunday Press"
to excel in the dee distribution of
art souvenirs, yet that will be the
fact. The subject to be given free
to every reader of next Sunday's
"Press" is a lieautiful "Bird Panel,"
and will surpass anything ever
given away. It portray- a varietv
of birds faithfully and delicately re
produced in their natural colors,
presenting an uncommon beauty,
which will make for the picture a
permanent dace in our homes. The
work is by the great French painter,
M. Giacomelli, whose paintings of
birds, insects and small animals are
famous the world over, and nearly
every private gallery, as well as
every public one, contains one or
Specimens of this great artist's work.
To make sure of getting this
great souvenir you should order
next Sunday's "Press" from your
newsdealer at once.
