"women to be strong, curing backashe,
^nervousness, kidney troubles, inflam
mation of the female organs, weak
ness and displacements, regulating
the periods perfectly and overcoming
their pains, Ifc has also proved itself
invaluable in preparing women for
childbirth and the change of life.
THIRD.-The great volume of unso
licited and grateful testimonials on fife

Mass., many of which are from time to
time published by permission, give ab

TERRIBLE SCALP HUMOR.
Head Covered With Humor Sores, "With

by Cntlcu.iv Remedies.
'?All my life 1 bad been troubled more
or less with humor in my scalp, but about
a year ago it became worse, aud my scalp
was covered with little sores, which
itched so it nearly made me crazy; my
hair also began to get dry and fall out. 1
tried all kinds of hair restorers with no
effect, and I was nearly discouraged, but
one day I waB reading in a paper what
the Cu ti cu ra Ken cd i es had done for scalp
diseases, and decided to make a trial. I
got a cake of Cuticura Soap, a box of Cu
ticura Ointment and Guticura Resolvent
Pills. I used them according to direc
tions, and soon noticed a difference; tho
tiny sores on my scalp began to heal, the
itching stopped, and my hair began to
grow thick. I have used only the one
cake of Cuticura Soap, one box of Oint
ment and one vial of Pills, and now I
have no humor on my scalp and my hair
is soft and silky. Miss Mayzie G. Atkins,

A Bargain in Horseflesh.
The average citizen who wishes to
purchase a horse for business pur
poses generally patronizes a gyp es
tablishment or the cheap auction ba;
zaar. An" individual visited one of
the latter places on Saturday and now
imagines he stru?-k a real bargain!
The animal he purchased was de
scribed by the auctioneer In the fol
lowing terms: "This horse, gentlemen;
is the property of a private party go
ing abroad, warranted wind and work,
good eyes, no cribber, a dead down
puller, cannot hook him wrong, kind
in all kinds of harness, has plenty of
spirit, won't run away and will be
sold for the high dollar. New, what
am I offered for this magnificent,
piece of horseflesh? 1200, bid? $100,
am I off erect? Come, men, start him;
he's got to be sold." The greeny of
fered $4, and as the price waa not adf
vanced he got the trotter. "When last
seen he was gulling him up Broad
street by the halter. Some one in
the crowd stated that the officers at
the Zoo would not give $2 for the
horse to feed it to the animals.

A Confession That Coal Rates

Inter-State Commerce Commission's
Investigation Draws Blood-Mr.
Searles Denies That the Purpose
of the Rates is to Stop Competition
"-Tonnage Apportioned Among the
Roads Comprising the Association
-Final Hearing Into Alleged
Atuses of the Coal Trade.
Philadelpha, Special.--That rates
are fixed by the "traffic association"
composed of various coal-carrying
railroads was thc admission drawn
from railroad officials at the final
hearing of the inter-State commerce
commissioner's investigation into the
alleged abuses of the coal trade. Thro'
Joseph G. Searles, coal traffic mana
ger of the Peniislyvanin Railroad
Company, who is chairman of thc
All-Rail Traffic Association, it was
learned that this organization not
only fixes thc percentage of tonnage
alloted lo each railroad, but also es
tablishes the rales. Counsel for the
commission produced the minutes of
a meeting of the Tidewater Bitumi
nous Steam Coal Traffic Association
held on September 19, 1900. tho
records showed that a resolution of
J fered by the Norfolk & Western
j company permitted that company
and the Chesapeake & Ohio railroad
to carry tidewater coal at the rate
of $1.25 a ton was voted down and
that the'rate was fixed afc $1.40 a ton
on Mr. Searle's resolution. At thc
meeting of the Norfolk & Western
Railroad complained that their in
terests wore being injured by dif
ferentials in freight rates.
Establishment of Rates.
M-r. Searles admitted that there
had been an agreement as to the ton
nage to be allowed each road and
that if one road shipped more and
another less a settlement was made,
rle said that there had been no set
tlements *ince 1S90. lu explaining
the establishment of rates Mr. Searles
stated that each company fixed ils
price which was later agreed lo by
the members of the association. If
any company should reduce the rate
he said it would demoralize thc gen
eral situation; Mr. Searles. denied
that there was an understanding lo
maintain r.ites between all-rail and
all-water associations for the purpose
of preventing competition. It was
shown by the records that the rates
on soft coal were increased in 1900.
Since then lhere has been no chango.
