A strangers first impression, of a city Is gained from the railway tation at whSch he alight, and from its environ? uialnts, Too often he has travaled over a black, cindery- course and arrived At wooden strucBure absurdly devoid of architectural beauty and wjth a dreary expanse of uncultivated giound' That the bautiflcation of railrtoad, where it traverses a city Its suburbs, should be- cpn.sijered thu duty of the management as much, the care of the ''rolling stock" may at first pight seem the dreim of an idealist; but i specific this has been shown tq be a paying investment he movement to improve esthetic ally the appearance of the right of way. and to beautify the stations and theic. woundings has made almost! as rap Id pnogress witb us ia recent years as have the forward movemeins of vjjtegu All of the expenditures are pn a strictly business basis.

Perhaps railroacT. are pot such "soulless corporations" af? ter all, At any rate, the public pleas ure is now ministered to in a marked. degree. Money is rtequired for this, it is true; yet a station need not possess the magnificence of the New York and St." Louis structures to bej beautiful.

gie Shqrt, a Logan young, lady, has granted ft commutation of his, sentence to ten years by Govern er JJoah, Since his has been a model prisoner and having the oonfidence and repppct qf he officials, has been allowed a few liberties condemmed murderers seldom hflve granted, We' have heard several Phillips county people who have visited the pen, re-park aa to JJintqn'e behavior aiub the good word wardens and other offioers in that institution have had to say for him, AR this has nq doubt counted in the coniinu-. tatiou of the life sentence, The Topeka oorrespondent to the Kansas City Journal thus recalls the Hinton case, with which -many of our citizens are familiar. Hinton six years ago was a lad 18 years of age and kept company with Maggie Shnrtz, a girl of the same age. They became engaged, but the father of the girl not only refused the hand of his daughter, but forbade them from seeing each other, The lovers drew up a suicide compact, which they planned to carry out, One evening Hinton called for the girl at the house, She met him in the yard, placed his arms about her, kissed her, and then shot her twice, She died iin-mediately. Hinton turned the revolver upon himself, firing into hla left side evidently seeking his heart.

iBut the bullet went through his lungs, 1 He dragged himself to a creek near the house for a drink of water and then dragged himself back to the house and begged the girl's father to kill him, The latter caused his arrest, In the county jail awaiting trial Hinton had to bo wa-'ched very closely, He tried to pull the band, ages from th wound in an effort to Weed himself to death. He waa tried and sent to the penitentiary for News. In the above clipping there is a mistake as the girl did not die immediately but lived 51 days nf-ter the shouting occurred.
