Senator Tillman Changes Cars.
A railroad attorney who
has just come up from the
South went. to South Caroli
na on the same train with
Senator Tillman and Mrs.
Tillman a few days ago. 4:We
had seats in a parlor car,"
said the attorney, "and were
comfortable, if not luxurious.
I knew Tillman to be such an
outspoken advocate of the
'plain people' that I was sur
prised, but I decided he had
come to the conclusion, aft-
!er serving1 six years in Wash
ington, that parlor cars were
uiot against the principles of
true democracy. However,
I found that' that was not
the case, for when the train
reached the South Carolina
line Senator Tillman and his
wife gathered up their be
longings and moved forward
to a plain, ordinary day coach.
They were too wise to ride
through their own state in
an expensive, upholstered
500 Applications for 23 Chaplaincies
Washington telegram to the New. York World.
Never before mi the histo
ry of the American army has
there been such a surprising
interest manifested in the
spiritual welfare of the sol
diers. More than fiv.e hun

laincies have already been
filed with the. President, and
thev continue to arrive with
The Army Reorganization
Bill provided for twenty
three additional chaplains.
The pay and rank were fixed
at that given a captain of in
fantry, together with the usual
extras and allowances, or
about $2,000 a year. While
the position of post chaplain
was abolished, each regiment
of cavalry and infantry is to
have a spiritual adviser, and
the artilleiy corp3 is to have
Many applications com
ing in are from superannuat
ed preachers who are inelig
ible, as io person more than
forty years of age can be ap
pointed chaplain. Every ap
plicant is also required to es
tablish his fitness for the
place. The commissions are
interchangeable, and the chaj)
lains may be transferred
from one branch of the ser
vice to another, and from
one regiment to another, with
out being recommissioned.
Nearly every denomina
tion is represented in the list
of applicants. Two dozen
negro clergymen are among
the number. The Roman
Catholics are making especial
efforts to secure additional
recognition, as but four of
the army chaplain are of
that faith. The Methodists
hold the record, having elev
en chaplains now. Mr. Mc-
Kinlev is a Methodist. It is
expected that the President
will make a sort pro rata
distribution of the new plac
es among the various denom
inations. 8 C0ERESP0NDENCE. t

which caused a valuable horse much suffering, but
from which permanent injury was avoided by the
timely use of Mexican Mustang Liniment.
" La Grange, Tenn., Jan. 6, 1901.
Lyon Manufacturing Co.,
Krooklyn, X. V.
Dear Sirs : I will say that your Mexican Mnstang
Liniment has done a wonderful cure in this -part of the
country. I own the stallion known as the " State of Ten
nessee," who has a large patronage both far and near his
service this Spring to date is 102 mares. I was offered
JP400.CO when he was two years old. I Tef used same. Then
some one took him from the stable and commenced with a
wire and wrapped the right leg from- the foot up to his hip,
and after standing all night the leg had swollen so large as to
hide the wire, and in five days the leg bursted and the flesh
turned inside out. I spent large sums of money to have him
cured but up to five months ago it was quite a failure, and
then a friend induced me to try a bottle of your liniment. I
used one of the 25-cent bottles because I did not have much
faith in it, but it helped him so much that I bought a second,
third and fourth bottle, which completely cured him. The
reason it took so long to cure is that it had a kind of itching
sensation when it was healing a little, when he would bite it
with his teeth. I put the liniment on the wound with a feath
er and rubbed the swollen parts with my hand.
.. Mexican Mustang Liniment seemed to take out all the
itching as well as to cause it to heal rapidly, and he showed
no disposition to interfere with it. The one dollar purchase
has been worth hundreds of dollars to me. I keep your
Liniment in my breeding stable all the time, and to those
who have horses I will say it is the best liniment that money
can buy. I will answer all inquiring letters.
Very truly yours,
J. C. WALTON.
