couple of weeks, and now it is stated
that the Q" is about to recognize the
Federation of Itiilroid employes and the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers
and Firemen. When the road got in
operation after the strike it was sup
posed that th men in the cab were
not Brotherhood men. Brotherhood

upon the svs cm helping in Brotherhood

a'l th engineers and firemen on the

the strike, however, until very recently,
there have been no negotiations between
the road and the labor organizations,
but it is said that several consultations
have been held at Chicago within the
past 10 days, and that an agreement has
been practically reached by which the

A Still Alans.
A still alarm was turned into the fire
department from the residence of J. S.
Gilmore shortly before 1 o'clock this af
ternoon, and the Centrals responded in
remarkably qnick time. It was found
upon arrival that the cause of the alarm
was a blaze on the roof of the frame cot
tage at 1021 Second avenue owned by
Virgil Warren, and occupied by William
Barnhart. The blaze was discovered by
Mrs. Barnhart, and an alarm was imme
diately sent in and in the meantime a
small garden hose was attached to the
hydrant and with this the fire was extin
guished before the arrival of the depart
ment. It is supposed to have caught
from a spark from an cdjoiaing chimney
as the fire was on top of the shingles.
There was no damage incurred as it was
put out before it had burned more than
two or three shingles.
Safe, Sure and Speedy
No external remedy ever yet devised
has so fully and unquestionably met
these three prime conditions so success
fully as Allcock's Porous Piasters. They
are sife because they contain no dele
terious drugs and are manufactured
upon scientific principles of medicine.
They are sure because to"hicg gres into
them except ingredients which are ex
actly adapted to the purposes for which
the plaster is required. Tiiey are speed?
in their action because their medicinal
qualities go right to their work of re
lieving pain and restoring the natural
and healthy performance of the func
tions of muscles, nerves and skin. Do
cot be deceived by misreprefenta'ions.
