Hard on Railroads.
Railroad men have discovered a
new cause for railroad wrecks in the
monster locomotives that are now be
ing used extensively by all railroads.
While lwing hauled from their
places of building Sto the roads for
wnicn tnev are intended u nas oeen
acertained that the giant engines
have been playing havoc with the
tracks of the lines over which they
have passed. Reports have been re
ceived showing where the unconnect
ed driver of the monsters have pound
ed rails so hard that the latter have
been broken, ami others have been so
badly injured that they have snaped
under pressure of following trains.
Superintendents, road masters and
others who have reported on the mat
ter are of the opinion that not a few
of the recent wrecks that have been
attributed to defective track can now
be traced to broken and injured rails
resulting from the transportation of
these engines in an unfinished state.
The trouble has become so serious
that an order was issued by the Rock
Island (road requiring all "dead"
locomotives received for transporta
tion to be equipped with the side rods

Clerk's Wise Suggestion.
''I have lately been much troubled
with dyspepsia, belching and sour
stomach," writes M. S. Mead, lead
ing pharmacist of Attleboro, Mass.
"I could eat hardlv anything without
suffering several hours. My clerk
suggested I try Kodol Dyspepsia
Cure, which I did with most happy
results. 1 have had no more trouble
and when oue can go to eating mince
pie. cheese, candv and nuts, after
such a time, their digestion must be
pretty good. I eudorse Kodol Dys
pepsia Cure heartily. "You don't
have to diet. Fat all the good food
you want but don't overload the
stomach. W. W, Boas, Brisley Drug

A Musical Feast.
The engagement of Leouora Jack
son at the opera house on Satunlay
night was a real musical treat aud
was a most pronounced success. Miss
Jackson is simply a prodigy as a vio
linist. She gave three numbers and
received a hearty encore each time.
William Bauer accompanied Miss
Jackson on the piano and also ren
dered two piano solos. He thorough
ly understands his business as an ac
companist as well as a soloist. In
the former capacity he does not as
pire to be the whole show as some
accompanists we have heanl seem to
do. Miss Jackson while plaving
seems to be in a trance aud is oblivi
ous to her surrouudings, except her i
instrument, which she fairly fills with
animation , Harrv J. rellows, the
tenor also made a decide I hit with
the audience. He is possessed of a
very sweet musical voice, which is
well trained, aud his enunciation is
perfect. He received encores to each
of the two numbers he rendered.

SAVED BY A DEER.
Woman Lost in Adirondack! Kept
Alive by Friendly Beast.
I'r. -.! Har from Perlaatnaj with
Col br Warmth of His Bor
Omly to Br Mot to Death la
Moralu b m Uultr.
Miss Margaret MeConnell, of L'tica,
N. Y., who was lost for more than 30
hours recently in the Adirondack for
est, made friends with a big deer and
was saved from deal., by the warmth
of the animal. She had wandered
about, foiiuwing- one trail and then an
other, and finally waued waist deep
into a brook to reach an abandoned
"lean-to" or aback built by hunters.
Chilled through Mis Mot'onnell
crouched in this shack all nis..t and
crept out, cold, and stiff, in the morn
ing. She had not dared to sleep for
fear that she would never awake, she
was so wet and cold. While wander
ing about in the morning she heard
the screech of a locomotive whistle
and tried to find the railroad track,
but was unable to do so.
"That night," she said, "I could find
no other shelter than a large rock
leaning over a hollow in the ground.
I pulled some boughs into the open
ing and covered myself over with
them and lay quietly for at least an
hour. As I lay there a large buck
came near and appeared very tame. I
reached out my hand and touched his
head or neck. Soon he left me and in
a moment returned with a doe and
fawn. They were very much afraid
of me, but the buck seemed not in the
least alarmed. Finally he came, and
lay down beside me. This is without
doubt the one thiof that saved my
"The big deer remained with me all
night and in the morning was in,
sight most of the time. About noon,
as I suppose, and while I was en
gaged in rubbing my feet, I heard
shot, saw the deer bound into the air
and fall. I tried to rise, but could
not. I shouted and finally saw a man
coming my way. My first words were:
"Have you shot my big deer.'
"The hunter, whose name I learned
was Fred Reber and who live in
Hoonville, and his companions carried
me to their camp.
"I am going to ask Mr. Rsber for
the head of the deer which gave it
life for me."
WHALE LAUGHS AT RIFLBMEN.

Montreal's most recent and distin- 1
guished visitor, the whale, which has
been disporting himself about the port
for the past few dsys, is still in the
harbor, apparently so taken with the
harbor commissioner's recent im
provements that he is unwilling to
leave. This, too, in spite of the fact
that invitiation after invitation has
been sent after the poor brute in the !
shape of rifle bullets of all shapes and
From early morning until night the ,
Guard pier is filled with alleged sports
men, who wish to get a shot at the !
whale. So far the shots appeared to !
have no great effect beyong making I
him keep under water for abnormal
periods of time. Even Savage rifles
with nickel bullets have been expert- !
mented with; probably not less than 1
a thousand pounds have been expended
upon him all told. Of course, if he j
stays about the port long enough, some
one will in time Isnd a shot in a vital
place, and then it will be all over with
the big visitor from the deep. Mean
time he appears to stand It fairly well.

M. Jules Siegfried lectured at Paris
the other night at the Musee Social
on his recent tour in America, repeat-
ir.g in extended form the opinions al
ready expressed. He predicted that
the present century would see the I
United States the greatest and most
powerful commercial and industrial
nation in the world. "If France is
wise," he said, "she will not delay i
to take advantage of America's tradi- j
tional friendship in order to secure
the means by a give and take policy I
to get a fair share of this vast, un- I
limited, and ever increasing flsld of
commercial enterprise beyond the At
lantic." Tall Hata Are l ahealthr
The controversy as to the wearing
of the tall silk hat waxes warm. S
Lord Ronald Sutherland Gewer adds
his views in a long article in the Lon- ;
don Tattler. "First," he says, "I be
lieve that headgear to be unhealthy.
It is bad both for the outside and the
inside of the head. Baldness, which
is so universal in what are called the '
upper classes, in contrast to the hair
covered scalp of the poorer, is main
ly due to the tall. hat. As to bad
effects on the brain, there is the high
authority of Dr. Forbes Winslow. who
says that the wearing of the tall hat
is partly the reason for insanity,
which is on the increase."
American Bars Bad of Klaat.
It is not every American million
aire who can dream of his increas
ing wealth while lying in a bed upon
which once rested the form of a king.
Yet the other day a full bedroom
suite of ash and olive wood, once used
by Charles X., was sold to a wealthy
American for $500. a low price when
the historical associations of the
furniture are taken into considera
tion. A New York dispatch says the blue
point oyster beds have been ruined.
The inane for the man who can
make the bogus blue point, says the
Ch'eago Record-Herald, has arrived.
