town that hasn't a railroad is off to
itself. It doesn't contain progressive
'people and is hidden among the hills
iof an unsettled district, away from
the activities of the world. The city
that has the most railroads is the one
that becomes a nioccn for trade. The
i railroad is a corporation unju?fcly

train?no matter whose fault it is?
the first idea that occurs to them is

The idea took root?it was cultivated, experimented

then finally about a year ago there sprang into being,

Less than two months after its introduction Bevo had
leaped into such popularity that even our already

two camp chairs. Just tliosc two

The officer looked up pleasantly
and greeded his visitor with u smile
lie was ii rather taill slender man.
with a neatly trimmed Vandyke heard
and a mop of black hair inclined to

a ruddy skin which proclaimed plain
and sane living.
The officer was Colonel Cornelius
Vanderbilt, commanding the Twenty
second regiment of engineers, a mil
lionaire a good many times over
one of the wealthiest men in tin* count
try and by odds the wealthiest in
the United States army today. There
was nothing to indicate wealth or lux

Colonel Vanderbilt has been in the
habit of riding around oveV the coun
try in a private car, and if he has
l>een in any imrticular hurry he has
simply ordered out a special train,
for he is a railroad magnate. He
owns railroad stocks and bonds by
the bale, and he owns more than one
entire system outright. But he .came
to Spartanburg frpin New York on a
troop train, which made considerably
less than 20 miles an hour, and he
did not have any special or extra ac
commodations. And he said he en

The position of colonel of a regi

I biggest position in an army division.
And Colonel Yanderhilt receives and
obeys orders just as he gives them.
He is every hit a soldier, and the

If his superior otilcer should tell him
to take n walk of 2<K) miles and come
back and .make a report on the Iojki^

and start on the job. It is his way.
