Those who are best acquainted
with President Atkinson are web
aware of the fact that when it comes
to business matters he is a bettei
listener than a talker, consequently
the newspaper man did not get any
long and lucid interview from him. Ho
aid say one or two things, however,
of special interest to Brunswick, in
the fir&t place, for the first time
President Atkinson intimated that at
some future date the Brunswick

that the work was practically at a

with splendid nerve and lorethougnt,
and reining her horse leaped from
the buggy and gathered the infant
from the heels of the horse. Just how
it happened is hard to explain, but.
the baby escaped injury completely,,
both from the hoofs of the horse ano
