WILLARD TO FLY
AT FORT WORTH
Aviator's Manager Here on
Way East to Arrange
Assistant manager Nolan, of Hamilton
and Willard, the two aviators who
have been thrilling the crowds in the
west and southwest, was here Thursday
on his way to Fort Worth to arrange
for the appearance of Willard at Fort
Worth and other central western points.
These two aviators are the oi y ones
now filling engagements, and it is Mr.
Nolan's intention to arrange for the
appearamce of Wiliard in the citfes
where it was necessary for Piulhan's
partment of justice, has directed the
fight on behalf of the United States.
In the brief of the railroad counsel, ;
it is contended that the train is the
factor of offences, because livestock is
moved in trains.
"If there be a confinement in cars
beyond 28 hours during transit under
circumstances which constitute a viola
tion of the statute, it must be the fault
of the train," says the brief.
"Congress has not said whether the"
offences shall be per head.of stock, per
shipment, per car load, or per train
load. If congress had intended there
should be a fine of $500, the maximum
penalty for one offence for each head
of stock delayed, or for each ship
ment delayed or for each car load de
layed, it was easy to say so. Bearing
in mind the rule of strict interpreta
tion of penal statutes, the only reason
able construction of the statute is that
the detention of all stock on the same
train constitutes but one offence.
"Congress did not deem it necessary
to be so severe as to permit a fine of
$500 for each shipment in a trainload
containing possibly 50 shipments, which
a single fine of $500 would answer as

This controversy was begun when

The district court consolidated the
cases and assessed a single penalty.
The circuit court of appeals for the
sixth district reversed that decision.
The case then was brought to the su
preme court by the railroad. Briefs
on both sides of the controversy "have
been filed with the court.
Counsel for the railroad is headed by
Judson Harmon, now governor of Ohio.
Solicitor general Bowers, of the de-
than 2S hours without unloading be

says solicitor general Bowers in his
brief. "Is the train the unit of of
fence,1 though there has been no train?"
He asked the same question wher
cattle had been sidetracked in cars
and the train proceeded. In the case
of cattle not being fed after they
were unloaded he claimed the train
plainly was not meant to be the unit.
"Indeed, the word 'train does not
once occur ,in the act," he says.
He further contends that his point
is proved by means of the provisions
regarding owner's' consent to the ex
tension of time fro m28 .to 36 hours.

"The owner's consent affects his
shipment, and only his shipment,
whether it is in a train with other
shipments of livestock or not: and the
result is that the rule of conduct for

ments. The shipment being, the unit

tertained a large audience at the El
Paso theater last night and today's
matinee. The play is an" old one and
is about as well 'knoown as "East
Lynne" and "Rip Tan Winkle," and
like these plays, it always holds an
American audience. It tells the story of
.the quaint, homely people of rural
America and has about an equal num
ber of sobs and laughs plenty of both.
Miss Melville created the character of
"Sis Hopkins," the awkward country
girl, and made herself and the produc
tion famous from one end of the coun
trj' to the other.
She is just as refreshing in it today
as she was the first time she ever ap
peareS before the public The audi
ence laughs at her antics and sighs
with her over her troubles, finally re
joicing' with her when all ends well in
the last act and as it always does in
a ruraf drama.
From the awkward, ridiculous coun
try girl to the polished boarding school
graduate, with a final European polish,
is a big contrast and a far cry, but
Miss Melville acts the part so that the
transition is so gradual that it Is per
fectly, natural. Through it all she re
tains the quaint characteristic that has
made millions laugh with and love "Sis
Hopkins." She is a very clever little
woman and really pretty when she
wants to be, and Is surrounded by a
company that meets all the require
ments and readily passes as capable.

Medicines like those of Dr. R. V. Pierce of Buffalo, warrant their makers in printing their every ingre
dient, which they do, upon their outside wrappers, verifying the correctness of the same under oath.
This open publicity places these medicines in a class all by themselves. Furthermore, it warrants physicians
in. prescribing them largely as they do in their worst cases.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
Is a most potent alterative or blood-purifier, and tonic or Invlgorator and acts especially favorably
in a curative way upon all the mucous lining surfaces, as of the nasal passages, throat, bronch
iai tubes, stomach and bowels, curing a large per cent of catarrhal cases whether the disease af
fects the nasal passages, the throat, larynx, bronchia, stomach (as catarrhal dyspepsia), liver,
bowels (as -mucous diarrhea), or other organs.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
Is advised for thecure of one class of diseases only those peculiar weaknesses, derangements and irregularities pecul
iar to women. It is a powerful yet gently acting invigorating tonic and nervine.
For weak, worn-out, over-worked women no matter what has caused the break-down, "Favorite Prescription
will be found most effective in building up the strength, regulating tee womanly functions, subduing pain and
bringing about a healthy, vigorous condition of the whole system.
A book of particulars wraps each bottle giving the formulae of both medicines and quoting what scores of eminent med
ical authors, whose works are consulted by physicians of all the schools of practice as guides in prescribing, say of each
ingredient entering into tnese medicines.
