."She generally hits us off pretty well,

evening, she gets on the subject of
elopements. She says elopements
nover turn out happily. I don't agree
with her." "Neither do I," said the
man who had been occupied with his
own thoughts. "I am glad to hear you
say it," exclaimed the Evening Pif

I've been happy ever since." "So 1 .re

A DESERVED TRIBUTE TO THE
SOUTHERN RAILWAY AND
CONFIDENCE AND ENTHUSIASM
Southern Railway Has Aroused the
People to a Relization of the Great
Wealth Which Lies Dormant in the
Philadelphia-The Railway World,
in commenting editorially on the work
done by the railways of the United
States to aid in the development of
the territory traversed by their lines,
in referring to this work in the South
"In no section of the country, more
than in the South, have these efforts
to awaken the people to a realization
of the great wealth which lies dor
mant through a lack of proper develop
ment, been more persistently carried
on. The prime mover in that section
of the country has been the Southern
railway, and perhaps no single man
in the history of railway development
has performed so effective work along
these lines as has the president of
that great system. For years Mr.
Finley's faith and enthusiasm ta the
ability of the South to take advantage
of its vast resources has never wav
ered. Through his untiring efforts he
has been responsbile for no small
part of that cntuhsiasm and confi
dence which ls now prevailing in that
section of the country and which
means so much for future develop
ment and prosperity.
"The enthusiasm with which 9,000
delegates to the Southern commercial
congress held in Atlanta, and who
represented every important trade or
ganization in the Southern states,
greeted every expression of confidence
in the South's future was a revelation
to the big men of business and state
who, from all sections of the country,
went to Atlanta to participate in the
activities of the congress. While not
presuming to trace the influence of this
movement unduly to the railrords cf
the South, well informed men in that
section will not deny that the effec
tive educational work of the railroads
has proved no small factor in bring
ing about the present highly en
couraging condition. If the value of

Jack Johnson, Speed Maniac.
San Francisco, Cal.-Jack Johnson,
champion heavyweight pugilist, was
sentenced by Acting Police Judge
Treadwell to serve 25 days in the
county jail on a charge of exceeding
the automobile limit.
Shortly after his arrival here sev

limit and a fine of $100 was imposed.
He appealed against the fine and waa

appeal was pending.
The suspended warrant was also
served on him.

DISFIGURED WITH ECZEMA
"Our little boy Gilbert was troubled
with eczema when but a few weeks
old. His little face was covered with
sores even to back of his ears. The
poor little fellow suffered very much.
The sores began as pimples, his lit
tle face was disfigured very much.
We hardly knew what he looked like.
The face looked like raw meat. We
tied little bags of cloth over his
hands to prevent him from scratching.
He was very restless at night, his
little face itched.
"We consulted two doctors at Chi
cago, where we resided at that time.
After trying all the medicine of the
two doctors without any result, we
-read of the Cuticura Remedies, and at
once bought the Cuticura Soap and
Ointment. Following the directions
carefully and promptly we saw the re
sult, and after four weeks the dear
child's face was as fine and clean as
any little baby's face. Every one who
saw Gilbert after using the Cuticura
Remedies was surprised. He has a
head of hair which is a pride for any
boy of his age, three years. We can
only recommend the Cuticura Reme
dies to everybody." (Signed) Mrs. H.

PECULIAR AFTER EFFECTS
OF GRIP THIS YEAR.
Leaves Kidneys In Weakened Condition
Doctors In all parts of the country
have been kept busy with the epidemic
of grip which has ylslted so many
homes. The symptoms of grip this year
are very distressing and leave the sys
tem In a run down condition, particu
larly the kidneys which seem to suffer
most, as every victim complains of
lame back and urinary troubles which
should not be neglected, as these dan
ger signals often lead to more serle .
sickness, such as dreaded Bright's Dis
ease. Local druggists report a large
sale on Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root which
so many people say soon heals and
strengthens the kidneys after an at
tack of grip. Swamp-Root is a great
kidney, liver and bladder remedy, and,
being an herbal compound, has a gen
tle healing effect on the kidneys, which
is almost immediately noticed by those
who try it. Dr. Kilmer & Co., Bing
hamton, N. Y., offer to send a sample
bottle of Swamp-Root, f;ree by mail, to
every sufferer who requests it A trial

The cause of rheumatism is excess
