Consumption of Ties.
Assuming the antire railroad system of the
United Stats tc te 160,000 miles, as appears
from Poor's Manual, with the addition of the
lines in coutDruction during the current year,
and taking 2,640 ties per mile of track, we
have in use it least 422,400,000 ties. This es
timate, largj though the total appears, Is un
der the mark, as no railroad uses less than
2,640 ties per mile, and many of the roads
with heavy traffic have 2,816, and in a few
The life -if these ties varies according to
their quality and the climatic conditions; but
In the east, where only the best ties are em
ployed, the average life is found to be about
six years, y hile in the west, where poorer
quality of timber often has to be accepted,
and where ry rot and other disadvantages
have to be irontended with, the average life
is from three to rive enars; so that even after
allowing for a few exceptional cases in which
tics may lst tea years, the average life oi
ties all over the country cannot be counted
as more than five yearn.
It follows, therefore, that the annual con
sumption must be about 84.500,00(1, which,
with stead- increase of railroad building,
must soon xceed 100,000,000 a gigantic de
mand to be satisfied from our forests each
year, when we consider the many other calls
upon them, and the fact that at present vir
tually nothi ng is being done by the govern
ment or the people to replenish our source of
The cert in rise in the price of wooden
ties, when t iese facts come to be fully appre
ciated by the lumbermen who control 60

With the rapid growth of reconstructive
medicine comes opportunely the reintroduc
tinn of old tnd well known domestic reme
dies, among which buttermilk demands a re
spectable place. A youns lady patient of
the writer's was suffering from a severe con
sumptive c.mgh. None of the usual anti
spasmodics, expectorants, etc, seemed to do
any good, simply because her stomach was
tiX) weak to bear enough medicine to effect
the punost. Finally 1 Suggested to her
mother the use of hot buttermilk. It was
adopted at once. Her first night's experience
was one of omparative freedom from cough
and pain, a id a pleasant slumber for several
hours. It was continued for a long time,
with an unvarying relief of all her previous
distressing symptoms and an almost jierfect
freedom frc m cough for several hours after
each draught of the hot buttermilk.
Lingering; at one time for weeks from an
attack of congestive fever, dosed with calo
mel and quinine almost beyond endurance.
the writer begun to desire buttermilk to
drink. Tl e physician "didn't believe in
humoring tiio whims of patients," as he ex
pressed it; liesulps, he contended that a single
drink of tl e obnoxious fluid might produce
death, as a ids ami calomel were incomiatible
dwellers in the same stomach. Cut I was a
good persuader, and my mother was a sus
ceptible su.iject. The buttermilk, "fresh
from the c mm," was procured ami drank.
No evil resulted; instead came a perspiration
and speedy recovery. Dr. S. F. Indrey.

seemed imminent. For three months she
coughed incessantly and could not sleep.
She bought of us a bottle of Ut. King's

so much relieved on taking the first dose
that she slept all night, and with one
bottle has been miraculously cured. Her
