Mr. Marion Holcomb of Nancy, Ky., says: "For quite
a long while I suffered With stomach trouble. I would
have pains anld a heavy feeling after my meals, a most
disagreeable taste in my mouth. If I ate anything with
butter, oil or grease, I would spit it up. I befan to have
regular sick headache. I had used pills and tablets, but
after a course of these, I would be constipated. It just
seemed to tear my stomach all up. I found they were
no good at all for my trouble. I heard
recommended very highly, so began to use it. It cured
me. I keep it in the house all the time. It is the best
liver medicine made. I do not have sick headache or
stomach trouble any more." Black-Draught acts on
the jaded liver and helps it to do its important vork of
throwing out waste materials and poisons from the sys
tem. This medicine should be in every household for

When the talk turns from politics to railroads,
and the traveler with the cocksure air breaks
in with, "There's an awful lot of 'water' in
the railroads," here are some hard-pan facts
to give him:
American railroads have cost 10,900 a mile
--roadbed, structures, stations, yards, termin
als, freight and passenger trains-everything
from the great city terminals to the last spike.
A good concrete-and-asphalt highway costs
$36,000 a mile-just a bare road, not count
ing the cost of culverts, bridges, etc.
Our railroads couldn't be duplicated to..
day for $150,000 a mile.
They are capitalized for only $71,000 a mile
much less than their actual value. Seventy-one
thousand dollars today will buy one locomQtive.
English railways are capitalized at $274,000 a
mile; the French at $155,000; German $132,000;
even in Canada (still in pioneer development)
they are capitalized at $67,000 a mile. The
average for all foreign countries is $100,000.
Low capitalization and high operating effici
ency have enabled American Railroads to pay
the highest wages while charging the lowest
