The poorest seats in the senate are given ip new members. They are ut on the back row and are treat- ed with a sort of condescension by the older senators. They are looked upon as the babies of the senatorial family and for the first year or two of their service they are expected to act like good children and be seen and not heard. There are a number of senatorial babies in the chamber to-day and the major- ity of these are but little known to the people of the country. Senator Spooner is the small- est of them and he is much disgusted at the fact that public men about Washington com- ment upon his diminutive size.

The greatest damage occurred at the Cairo Short Line yards about one mile from the relay depot where probably fif teen cars were destroyed and the mimes for a time threatened the destruction of 100 or 200 cars in the intermediate vici...
