BOYS ARE NOT INCLUDED
Attorney General Hamlin interprets
the new child labor law as not apply
ing to employes in telegraph offices.
The words "messengers or drivers
therefor" in the act. the attorney gen
eral holds, apply only to the class of
companies enumerated in the act, in
which telegraph companies are not in
cluded. The attorney general is also
of the opinion that when a child is
employed to begin work at 7-a. m.
and works till 6 p. m., less three hours
rest in the middle of the day, such
employment is not in violation of the
HARVESTING SECOND CROP
OF STRAWBERRIES AT LYNDON
The strawberry growers of Lyndon,
in vtJiitesme county, are now mar
keting their second crop for this
year. While the crop is not large, it
furnishes, the- owners of the beds
abundance of fruit for their own ta
bles and a considerable supply for
the stores every day. The berries are
of excellent quality ami very large.
The crop of strawberries at Lyndon
this year was the biggest and best in
the history of the place. Several of
the growers have shipped a few boxes-
of the. berries away to their friends
during the past few days.

The Genuine vs. Counterfeit-
The genuine is always better than
a counterfeit, but the truth of this
statement is never more forcibly re
alized or more thoroughly apprecia
ted than when you compare the gen
uine De Witt's Witch Hazel Salve with
the many counterfeits and worthless
substitutes that are on the market.
W. S. Ledbetter, of Shreveport, La.,
says: "Alter using numerous other
remedies without benefit, one box of
De Witt's Witch Hazel Salve cured
me" For blind, bleeding, itching and
protruding- piles no reined- is equal to
DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve.

TO PUT BACK TRAIN
Rock' Island Road to Restore
Regular Service on the
- Cable Branch.
PBEPAEING A NEW TIME CARD
Will Ce Good News to the Patrons In
the towns Along the
A new time card in preparation by
the officials of the flock Island road
is understood to provide for the
restoration of the train on the Cable
branch abandoned during the summer
It is explained that this train
nothing but combination ' freights
and passengers are operated on the
branch was discontinued because the
traffic, which consists mostly of coal
from the Cable and Sherrard mines,
did not justify the company in run
ning three trains daily each way
throngh the hot months.
With the approach of cold weather
and consequent increase in the output
at the mines, the company states that
it can see its way clear to provide the
service that' was ."heretofore enjoyed
by its patrons on the branch. The
train taken off a few months ago ar
rived here at !S:00 in the morning and
returned at 'A:'.',0 in the afternoon, af
fording people who live in the towns
along the branch an opportunity to
do their shopping in the city and be
be back home the same day.
The train kept in service arrives
and departs at inconvenient hours,
one leaving at 5:15 a. ni. and return
ing at 2 p. in., and the other coming
in at 11:35 a. m. and returning at 7
Notes of the Kail.
(tales-burg Kepublican-Kegister: Mr.
Koach, of Beardstown. air-brake in
structor Jor thc Burlington system,
is in the city today and is equipping
a few of the engines with straight
air. The C, B. & Q. has been experi
menting ' wit h the new method for
nearly three weeks with engine No.
176, and it has proved a remarkable
success. Yesterday the brake was
tested on the engine in question be
tween Chicago and this city with a
train of 75 cars. Mr. Koach was along
and the trip was made with satisfaction.-
With Hie present automatic air
brake, which is used, on a long train
when the air is shut off the brakes
will loosen on the engine ami front
cars a little before it does on the rear
etui of the train, which causes the
front part of the train to bound for
ward with a jerk and oftentimes
breaks the train in two.
The straight air, which works only
on the engine and fender, prevents
Hris;-a the-air is held longer on them
than the back of the train and does
not allow the slack to be taken out
with a jerk, but more gradually. The
straight air will be an advantage in
many other ways, and especially in
shipping stock, as it will prevent
much of the jerking motion in stop
ping and starling.
COUPLE'S PLAN TO KEEP

ing the '-suspicions of their friends. .'
