Tuesday's action of the railrone
commission, in Hie matter froigh

seem l<> he generally understood
either by l lie railroads or hy the ship
ports, yet it is really very simple, a
will he seen from Ino following:
Recently the Southern Classifiea

of all the railroads tn the South, is
sued Supplement No. .'I to I heir elassi

Not only will Deas lose his pull at

unelorslood here that this fall he will
be deposed as Republican State
chairman and put out of politiea
power altogether. Commissioner Ca

Republican party in the State have
always regretted the necessity of po
litical :tsse)ciation with Deas, but hi

"When 1 feel a headache* coming on,
says a writer in the April Designer.
I look around for the cause. Usually
I loosen my hair. It is not generally
known Hint hair done up tightly and
pinned close to the head will cause
headache. Try letting the hair fall
loose, or braid or pin it loosely in a
a different style. Sometimes it is
my collar which is too tight, and
when I take it off my headache disappears.
Again it is caused by tight
or uncomfortable shoes, or by highheeled
shoes, which may feel comfortable
but which will cause t.h-e trouble.
