A little woman went to a certain Chan tauqua resort last summer and experienced a most conomical and cheerful way of liv ing. She was at that time In a debilitated condition, with poor digestion, which made It Imperative that she have the rl'ht kind of food, and yet such that was nourishing and strengthening, "so I tok r.n equip ment of fresh, rrir-p tlrap-Nutr. During that summer I iiwd on C,rape-Nuts with a little cream or milk and some ripe fruit uch as I could procure. Many meals were made of delicious Grape-Nuts alone.

Aside from the increased earnings the Wabash Is showing from week to week, it has seemingly reached a time of general prosperity such as it has never before en joyed, and every move of late has placed the road In a more independent position and strengthened the company in a finan cial way. The line the company is now constructing from Fort Wayne to Ilutler, to avoid the use of the Kel River road, which had been prohibited by the court, such decisions being fortunate rather than detrimental to the company's interests in its operation, will woric a saving to the company. Tha new line increases the dis tance from Toledo to St. Louis but one mile, whereas a considerable saving will re sult. The rental of the Kel River road was l:J, a year, while the interest on the bonds will not exceed S2i.Uß) per annum. and, still better, there are only twenty-six miles of road to maintain, against ninety- throe miles on the Eel River division. The W abash is now so well located and strengthened by the new link that, no mat ter whether the Pennsylvania, the Lake Shore or any other interest purchases the Lei River road, or tne company operates it, claiming to own it. as a competitor of the Wabash, it is practically harmless, and by building the Montpeller-Toledo division another embarrassment is removed. Some years ao holders of old equipment bonds of the Wabash claimed an equity, subject to the iirst and second mortgage bonds on the main line from Toledo to the Ohio state line, and are still litigating for what they claim as their rights. Should their conten tion be sustained, with this piece of new road built, the Wabash would not be In the least embarrassed, so that, summing all up, the Wabash, in recent undertakings, has greatly strengthened its standing as a rail way system. I'enriHylvanla to Control the n. fc O. Tho New York Evening Post says: 'Chairman William Saloman, of the Bal timore & Ohio Railroad, is going to re tire from that position and from active participation in the management - of the company. He will shortly leave this country for an extended trip in Europe. The P.altlmore & Ohio voting trust Is to oe abolished, or entirely reconstituted in the Interests of the- Pennsylvania Rail load, which now controls the lUiltimore fc Onio. Additional Pennsylvania olllcers will bo elected to the Baltimore & Ohio board a.s soon as the Pennsylvania directors themselves make up their minds just what representation they want. The Pennsyl vania now controls about $4'.MiG0,iou par value of Baltimore & Ohio stock, about equally divided between preferred and com mon stock, lhe outstanding capital of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad is SiS.WW.iK-O common and ?'Ä,'MUNM preferred, so that the amount controlled by the Pennsylva nia, though not an absolute majority, gives it a dominating voice in the Baltimore &. Ohl . affairs." rernonnl, Local and General Noten. Harry Crawford, president of the Chicago & Southeastern, Is in the city. J. B. Eckman, district inspector of the weighing and inspection burtwrus, who has been quite ill, is on duty again.

The latest report is that the Lima North ern and Ohio Southern deal will include the Findlay, Fort Wayne & Western and the Columbus & Northwestern roads. The Pennsylvania Railroad Company has rlaced an order with the car works at Wil mington, Del., for 'twenty-live coaches of the most modern and substantial build. W. S. Newhall, who has been appointed chief engineer of the Wheeling & Iake Erie, was formerly assistant engineer on the Cleveland and Pittsburg division of the Pennsylvania lines. Benjamin McKeen, superintendent of the Peoria division of the Yandalla, and J. AV. Thompson, superintendent of the Southern Indiana, will leave to-day on a hunting trip down the Mississippi.

In the year ILM) the Pennsylvania lines west earned 4.S2 mills per mile from freight tonnage, an increase over 1S1 of seven tenths of a mill, but the slight increase re sulted in a large increase in earnings. Transportation officials of the Baltimore & Ohio lines are in receipt of a letter of thanks from F. D. Lmlerwood, general manager, for excellent service rendered by employes during the heavy inauguration trathc.

Sargent, grand master of the Broth erhood of Locomotive Firemen, says he knows nothing of the firemen on the Lack awanna having grievances, and If they had he would be likely to be made acquainted with them. In this connection it is stated that all strike rumors are set atloat by dis charged men and former officials of the road. The Wabash, the Lake Shore, the Cincin nati. Hamilton & Dayton and the Michigan Central railroads yesterday notified ship vers at Toledo that no freight will be at ctpted until the waters have receded. The freight depots of these railways are close to the water frent and in some of them the water is two feet deep. All have dis missed the clerks. After months of protest the Burlington ctlklals have decided to bow to the gov ernment's refusal to pay the company's i.tbitrary rate on business over t lie bridge at (Juincy. HI. The controller of tne treas ury refused to nay the arbitrary rate l.i?t July, and the railroad's claims against ilu government on this account are roughly approximated at ?1j0,i). FreiUrh? A.

Th Schenectady locomotive works has scoured the right to build en gines 01 this type, and m Tuesday the i'hieigo, Burlington & Quincy placed an or tie r for fifty locomotives of the new tj-pe with these works.

On each medal will be stateel tlie year the employe entered the service of the company. A num ber e-f the- employes have been with the company since the real was built. George Stevens, president of the Chesa peake & Ohio. Is iu.ted as saying regard ing the rumors that the Pennsylvania Rail road Company was to absorb the Chesa peake & Ohio: "The Pennsylvania assumed active centrel of the- road during the win ter of '. and there has been no chnnge in the relations of the companies whatever. As the Pennsylvania now controls the roael it certainly has no occasion to lease it to teure contred." The New Yerk Mail and Express yester day printed the following: "It was learned to-day from an authoritative source that the large block of Chicago. Burlington & Quincy steck, which have been bought in the open market during the last three cr four weeks, causing a jump of 1 point? in tho price, were tiken lor the Union Ta ciilc, and within a very short time this will be followed by the election of several Union RaciMc men to the board of directors cf thi liurllngton Company." What appears to be the final settle-mcnt cf the much mooted trouble over the use of Erie mileage bonks on the Pittsburg & Lake Erie road, which is a member of the Central Passenger Association. ha.s been reached and both Erie and Central Pass nger Asso i.ition mileage will be used. The Hocking Valley road dropped the Erie mileage' ar.d remains in the Central Pas renger Association. Location of thn two roads made the conditions entirely different, the Pittsburg Sc Lake Erie being able to kc p the Erie mileage out of the hands of scalpers.

TERRE HAUTE, Ind., March 13.-The stabbing of Miss June Lee by Ray Herbert, a Vandalla brakeman. last night, in a wincroom. in a suburban resort, has added to the intense feeling in the city against murderers, following, as It did, In a few hours, the acquittal of one of the four Rus sian miners accused of a elouble murder on last election day, and the other tragic events of the last two weeks. As a matter of fact, the common belief was that the Russian had made out a good case of self defense, but the temper of the people 13 worked up to a pitch when little discrimi nation is made between justifiable killing and brutal murder.
