A story is told of a man who oper
ated a small steam ferry boat, on the
Sangamon river. He became am
bitious for a larger whistle and had
one of large dimensions installed on
tthe little boiler. On his first trip
across, waiting till he reached the
middle of the stream, he pulled the
whistle cord. My word, what a noise
but he, had consumed all the steam for
the whistle and had to drift until he
got up steam again. We think the
blowing of ones own horn is all right
if there is plenty of steam to back it
