Members of the Christian Endeavor have gone on rec ord against Sunday travel, and as a result officials of the Nickel Plate road have been obliged to change the sched ule of a special arranged to carry a large party to Boston. Between 100 and 150 members of va rious branches of the society will ar rive in Chicago Sunday night, July 1, on their way to the annual convention at Boston. The Nickel Plate secured the party for transportation from Chi cago to Boston, and that there might ot be any delay the officials arranged for the train's leaving the city at 10:30 m. Sunday night, July 1. The leader of the Chicago delegation did not ap prove of this and communicated with the heads of the various branches rep resented. .With one accord they made a protest against leaving Chicago Sun day, and stated that unless a change was made In the running time or tne train they would seek some line which would not compel them to travel on that day. - Mr. Callihan of the Nickel Plate was informed of the situation by the east ern office and at once informed the Christian Endeavor leader that mat ers would be arranged to suit him. It was finally decided to change the leav- ng time of the train, from 10:d p. m. Sunday night to 12:01 a. m. Monday morning. July 2. The incident illustrates the growing tendency of Christian societies to place ban on Sunday travel. Last year the Blue Ribbon special, bearing a party of Toung Men's Christian asso ciation members, was stopped in the western mountains, wnere it was neia over Sunday owing to the refusal of the members to travel on that day. To railroad officials the peculiar part of the affair is that the western delegations will travel the greater portion of Sun day while coming to Chicago. NEW BOCK ISLAND ENGINES.

Santa Fe and Colorado Southern to Lay New Track. Denver, June 16. Vice President Winchell and Superintendent Dyer of the Colorado & Southern railroad and Superintendent Parker of the Santa Fe line, .went out in a private car to Pu eblo. "We intend to make some changes in the freight yards in Pueblo,'" said Mr. Dyer. "We now handle the Santa Fe cars in Denver, and they handle ours in Pueblo, though we have a yard here. The Santa Fe yard is rather cramped and having both yards there is a great deal of unnecessary switching to be done. We hope to lay enough track in one or the other yard to make it possi ble for us to handle all our freight in one place. The other will be used for storage of cars out of service."

For the past four years I have suffered with catarrh of the stomach, causing loss of sleep and appetite, with, frequent severe pains after eat ing. I tried doctors and medicines until I lost faith and hops of ever getting well again. Ons of my associates advised me to try Peruna. It proved of genuine merit. My appetite returned speedily. I gained strength and flesh, and although I have used only five bottles of Peruna I am in perfect health today." Loss of Appetite. Mrs. T. W. Collins, treasurer of the Independent Order of Good Templars, of Everett, Wash., has used the great catarrhal tonic, Peruna, for an aggra vated case of dyspepsia. Mrs. Collins gives her experience with Peruna in the following words: The Peruna Medicine Co., Columbus.O.: Gentlemen "After having a severe attack of la grippe I continued in a feeble condition, even after the doctor called me cured. Mv blood seemed poisoned. I ALSO SUTERED WITH DYSPEFSIA AND HAD EITHER TO STARVE OR SUFFER FROM WHAT I WAS EATING.

She says: "I suffered for years with nervous ness. About five months ago I began taking Peruna and it has restored me so that I can do my own work." tion.

Santa Fe Will Equip Passenger Coaches With National Device. The Santa Fe has been testing a new car coupler for use on passenger trains. The new coupler is called the National coupler. It is designed to be used on passenger coaches and may be used in trains where soaie of the coaches are equipped with old style couplers. One great objection to equipping coaches with the Trojan coupler is that while some of the cars are equipped with one kind of coupler and some with the old kind, links and coupling pins have to be used. With the new coupler all this trouble is done away with. All the private cars are equipped witn the National. It is quite likely that an order will soon be issued to equip all other passenger coaches with it also. JOBS FOR THE ASKING. Mexican Central Office Employes at El Paso Resign. El Paso. Texas.
