THE EMPEROR'S EE1
Emperor William has astonished
pnd disgusted Germany by writing in
:hs Golden Book at Munich "The will
or the Emperor is the supreme law."
Something is however to be excused
to the hot Wood of youth suddenly
exalted to the supreme head of a great
nation. If the Emperor would take
that excellent remedy Reid's German
Cough and Kidney Cure he would be
relieved from these troubles. There
is nothing that will cure a cold or the
resulting maladies that come from it
so sxn or so well as Reid's German
Cough and Kidney Cure. This great
remedy will heal every trouble either
in the throat or lungs that arises from
a cold. In this respect it is unrivaled.
When you ask for this at your drug
gist's see that you get Reid's and take
no other. Every other remedy on the
market for the relief of these maladies
contain opiates in some form. There
is nothing of the kind in Reid's. See
that you get it.

Engineer Jim Tolls of the Express
We were sitting1 in the sun on the
south side of the Montana union depot,
in ltutte. when .litn told the story.
There was a tremor in his voice and a
moisture in Ms eyes that marked how
deeply his feelings were moved ly the
tale a chance remark led him to tell.
Kveryone who knows Jim Cook and
who doesn't know the rojrjjod engineer,
one of the oldest men in the I n ion Pa

built in proportion o his massive
frame. Touch him rip it, and no wom

no grizzly could be mow tierce. Jim
has seen exciting' times in the service
of the I'nion Pacific, and iis mind is
stored with reminiscences of the early
days of transcontinental railroading.
Ve had been chatting; in a rambling,
desultory way of snow-bound trains,
when the subject was suddenly shifted
and I happened to mention the robbery
of a Northern Pacific train near Karjfo.
Jim's manner changed insUtntl.y.
He had been leaning forward, resting
bis elbows on his knees and supporting
his chin with the palms of his hands.
Nou he sat bolt upright; his eyes
flashd anil his whole manner seemed
to indicate that his brain was conceiv

alKiut nine o'clock I caught sight of a
dark figure stealing along in the shadow
of the express.

a clicking sound like the putting on of

J climbed back over the tender to see !
what was the matter.
'Inst as I got to the rear I noticed
a widening gap Wtween the tender and
the express and realized that we were
uncoupled and that the bell rope had
leen cut; at the same time I saw one of
the bearded men standing at the brake

"luc tram had almost come to a
standstill, when I saw a gleam of light
cut through the night about midway
of the car. Then that streak of light
was darkened by the lengthened
shadow of a man, which moved cross

out into the night.

thought he was about to look out for
the cause of our stopping.
'Open your head again and I'll

Turning. I saw a man at each of the
cah's front windows. They had jumped
upon the pilot and crept back along
side of the boiler.
" There seemed to be a dozen of the
roblers. Not more than two had come
on the train. I am sure. The whole
thing had lieen planned. Those near
the engine, with the exception of the
two at the cab windows, made a rush

stream of light coming through the
open door a shot fired from the dark-

one of them to the ground. The others
fusilladed the spot from which the
shot appeared to come, and then two
shots fired under the train from the
other side, and another shot from away

Those, at the rear of the train then
joined those in front, and all made a
dash at the open .door of the express.
They were all in a bunch in the light.
Thc first man to enter the door
stood a moment and then fell back out

from the darkness away out to the

on his face in the car, the others, who
had been watchtnr, fired a volley at

appeared at the door. Something was

Then one of them whistled, and my

baek to the train.
'That was my chance. Out came
the gun from under the seat, and I got
a snap shot at Tom's man, but missed

"Suddenly a dark form rose up on
Tom's side of the track and threw
something into the tender. Tom and I
both fired at the man. He staggered
up against the cab steps and groaned.

dragged his face into the light.
"It was Charlie! We both had hit

"That was all he said. It was the
box he had thrown into the tender.
No matter how much there was in it,
the stuff wasn't worth the life of the

While I lifted Charlie np into the scat
Tom threw the old engine wide open
and we ran away from the train rob

'It was forty miles to the nearest

fed and worked the engine. I sat on

"They seemed to le repeating the
wonls: 'You've Villed him! 'You've

miles in an hour; good time over that

POLICEMEN'S GOOD HEALTH
Th. Law Death Bat lw U Thalr Hani

Although the lot of a policeman "ia
not a nappy one,- aa the sonir soea, yet.
considering the exposure to the weather
incidental to patrol duty, the busi
ness is not an unhealthy one, observes
the New York Times. According to
the report of the department for 1890
it appears that in a force of 3,303 of all
ranks there were but forty-one deaths.
The death roll includes three sergeants,
three detective sergeants and thirty
five patrolmen. The chief causes of
death were, as might be expected,
pneumonia and consumption. Eleven
deaths resulted from the former and
nine from the latter disease. There
were four deaths from heart disease.
three from li right's disease and two
from bronchitis. Two policemen only
met violent deaths, and they were
killed by falls.
When asked to explain the low rate
of mortality in the force one of the
police surgeons said that it was not sur
prising. "The men when appointed,"
he said, "must be in perfect health.
else they could not pass the stringent
physical examinations by the police
surgeons and the doctors of the civil
service board. They have plenty of out
door exercise, which tends to keep
them in good physical condition- Their
hoi'rs for rest and meals are as regular
as clockwork except .when an emer
gency arises, such as a long-continued
strike or other event tending to breed
disorder, or a large fire, when, for a
few davs, perhaps, this regularity is
broken in upon.
"The sleeping-rooms at the station
house are large and well ventilated.
The policemen are required by the
rules to be warmly clad in winter and
lightly clad in summer, and they are
compelled to supply themselves with
rubber clothing to wear in stormy
weather. They must keep themselves
clean. They can have medical at
tendance free when they are sick, and
every possible precaution is taken to
keep the force in a healthy condition.
"A policeman gets only half pay
while on the sick list, and, consequent
ly, there is very little malingering If
the policeman only keeps away from
-rum,' which causes more trouble in the
department than anything else, there
is no reason why he should not enjoy
better health than the average man.
There is a good deal of talk about the
hardships which a policeman has to en
dure, bui they are fully discounted by
the comforts he enjoys above those in
the same social scale."
