The Lawrence Journal says: “When an animal is killed or hurt by the cars on the Kansas Pacific the section boss fills out a blank form describing the locality of the accident, etc. One of the questions in the form is: ‘What disposition was made of the animal?’ The answer returned to this query in the case of a Texan steer run over the other day was: ‘Disposition mild and gentle.'” The Atchison Daily Patriot, Atchison, Kansas.
