A commission of nine railroad experts
has been investigating the subject of
electrical transportation as applied to
railroads. The commission represented
t ie Northern Pacific, Wisconsin Central
and other roads. The members vi.-ittd
the Edison works, the ThomsonHouston
works at Lynn, Mass., and then tpent
two days at the Westinghouse works at
Pittsburzh. The result of their labors,
which have been concluded, and the in
tentions of the railroads they represent,
were partially revealed by Chief Engineer
McIIenry, of the Northern Pacific com
pany, whose headquarters are at Tacoma.
He said: "'I be'.ieve that the motive
power will be applied directly to the
axles of each car, thus making each car
its own motor. Experiments are to be
made at one: ; they will take place at the
various works, and much of the cost will
be borne by the Tailroads. I do not see
why electricity should cot displace loco
motives, especially over steep grades.
The question which will be most d fficult
of i disposal will be the transmission of
the current and the obtaining of adequate
power in the wire.
A STliAXGE DEATH

manner. The VoliEe Dispatch de
While repairing a barbed wire fence
early lust spring he scratched the index
finger of his right hand on one of the
barbs. It made but a slight wound of
which he took little notice at first, out
after a few days it began swellirgatd be
came quite painful. Thinking he had
caught a little cold in it his wife poul
ticed it with a common "bread and milk"
poultice, wtich soon reduced the inflam
mation and to all appearances it became
as well as usual
Not long - after this the weather
changed, becoming quite co'd. when he
bought a pair of common red yarn mit
tens, such as are much worn by lumber
men, laborers and many others. He had
worn these only a short time when the
same finger again irritated, itching, burn
ing and swelling badly. The former
treatment seemed of no avail. The pain
became intense, the swelling steadily
creeping upward. Soon phyBiciftn was
called, then a second one, but nothing
could be done by eithtr of them. Both
pronounced it blood poisoning, and it had
entered the circr.Ution so thoroughly that
it could not lie removed.

The Scott Medical Institute
which has just closed its work
bf free treatment has
been a success.so far as can be
proved by the numbers of
afflicted people who have
thronged the Institute daily,
many of whom found relief
after the first treatment. This
is a medical institute coming
to our city well recommended,
the physicians having received
their diplomas from the best
medical colleges in the United
States as well as in foreign
countries, and it has come to
stay as can be proved by the
contracts they have made
which are without exception by
the year. The physicians have
decided to place the price of
treatment within the reach of
the poor as well as the rich.
They treat all diseases with
marked success with their
Catarrh ! Diseases of Women
These physicians also guar
antee to stop any pain in the
body in from three to five min
utes without the use of medi
cine. Remember it costs noth
ing to see these doctors and
find out what your troubles
are, and if you can be cured
they will take your case, but if
you can't then they will tell
you so. No matter what your
sickness is, go and get relieved
of find out if you can be cured.
: Catarrh, they guarantee to
cure no matter how long stand
ing. Those pronounced in
