He held the position as coaduetor on the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad for forty-five years.

They don't say nothing about the high rents most of us pay for the caves we live in." Keith Spalding's big auxiliary schooner yacht Goodwill, largest sailing yacht in the Pacific, returned to San Pedro, Friday, with her owner, his wife and party of friends from a fishing and hunting trip down the Mexican coast, (luring which the party caught a large number of huge swordfish, tuna and other game fish near the entrance to the Gulf of California. The yacht has been away about a month, yet so com- fortable and extensive are the appoint- ments of the big vessel that the guests and crew arrived in port without any more fuss than if they had been out for a few hours' cruise.
