Couple Up Trains Quicker Than on Foot. COWBOYS STARTED IT. Brothers Berry Left tbre Eanch For .Railroading. Forty-car Train Fully Made Up in Eighteen Minutes. Absolutely unique In the history of railroading are the cowboy switchmen of southern Colorado, says a Chicago paper. With the introduction of auto matic couplers, and the present use of double-header trains of fifty cars in length. It was discovered by long headed railway officials that men on horsebacK could couple up trains much quicker than those on foot. Although not a general custom, this unique method of switching has been tried with success in both the yards of Walesburg and Trinidad. Here are lo cated great coal mines and hundreds of cars a day were handled formerly by footsore switchmen, who trudged many miles coupling trains. One day a cowboy dashed up and watched the switchmen at work. With a grunt he urged his pony across the tracks, rode fearlessly between the cars, arranged the coupler, then backed out and gave the signal for the engineer to back up. Th coupling was made, and then the cowboy dashed further up the track, uncoupled another portion of the train, and in various ways per formed the work of the regular switch man in half the time it would fcave taken him to do it. Three brothers named Berry, who were working for a ranch close to the range, came into town resolved to go to work on the railroad. They learned the duties of yard switchmen, and then inroduced their ponies. These animals had a special training, and were taught not to balk at the cars, never to stand on the track3, but be tween them, so there is no possibility of being run over. They were also trained to follow their owner along the train, should be climb on the cars to set brakes. The Rio Grande railroad, seeing the possibilities of this new method of switching, soon introduced several cowboys, who became fully as expert as the Berry brothers. A train of forty cars was recently made up. the air connected and the brakes loosened in eighteen minutes. This necessitated twelve switches, and ia the best on record. The Brotherhood of Railway Train men took the matter up and after a long investigation they decided that the new method was not down in the agreement with the railroads, and therefore it" must be abolished. Rail roads, however, fought the brother hood, claiming that they had used the cowboys more as an advertisement than for any other reason, and seeing that it interfered but little with the work of the road crews, they would continue to use the cowboy switchmen.

An Oklahoma engineer tells this story: It is about a voung woman in Cameron, Oklahoma, who married a ghost and is stiil living with him. "I know tha young woman," he says. "John Allen of Cameron was a brake man on the St. Loui3 & San Francisco road and I was running an engine on the same road," he continued. "In a wreck poor John was killed. Well he was en gaged to Miss Bessie Brown of Cameron and the wedding day was set and prepara tions being made to celebrate the event. The news of John's untimely death seemed to daze the young lady and she locked herself ud in a room and asked to be let alone. Her parents became un easy about her sanity and had a physi cian to examine her to see it she hadn't gone crazy. The doctor said her mind was all rieht. so she was allowed to have her own wav. By and by one day she became all smiles. She told her parents that she had met and conversed with John's spirit and they had planned for the wedding to take place on his grave. The doctor was called in again, but he said the girl was not instne and she was allowed to go ahead and make prepara tions for her wedding to the ghost. "She rented a house and furnished it and went to the minister to engage his services to pronounce the ceremony. The preached did not take kindly to the wed ding of a pretty girl to an apparition and told her it was sinful to do so. She in sisted and finally the preacher and her parents saw it was no use to argue and la-t week they accompanied her to the gravevarl and as the clock on the old church tower struck 12 the ceremony was pronounced on the grave of the dead brakeman. "The next day the happy couple moved into their new home, or at least the bride did, and she says John is there too, al though nobody but she has seen him. She has the table set for two and an appar- A GOOD STORY A certain young lady in del icate health was advised by her doctor to take a half-teaspoon-ful of Scott's emulsion of cod liver oil after dinner once a day and found herself almost suddenly growing robust. So small a dose is by no means the rule; the rule is whatever the stomach will bear not more. Another rule is: take it on every least occasion, but not too much ; don't over do it.

She eats and talks to the imaginary husband on the other side of the table and seems to be happy as the bride of a ghost. "Mr. Brown, her father, is a well-to-do citizen of Cameron and as he has the money to afford it he wili likely furnish his daughter the means of keeping house with her husband's ghost as long as she finds comfort for her broken heart in such an existence." ASK NEW SCHEDULE. Northern Pacific Telegraphers Ask Increased Salaries. Minneapolis, Minn., Dec. 11. A special from Tacoma, Wash., to the Times, says: Northern PaciSe telegraph operators and dispatchers have asked for an increase of salary. The request has been made by employes along the line from Minneapolis to the coast and representatives of the men are in St. Paul conferring with offi cials in regard to the matter. There has been no threat of a strike in case the re quests for increased salaries are not granted. The operators have asked for a new scale and are now awaiting the re port of their representatives. The mo-e-rnent began several weeks ago. but has been pushed quietiy, so that few except officials of the road and interested oper ators knew of it. Los Angeles & Salt Lake. Washington, Dee. 11. Mr. R. C Kerens, national Republican committeeman from Missouri, is in the city for a couple of days. He comes east to join with the capitalists Interested in the organization of the new railroad which is to run from Salt Lake City to Los Angeles, a distance of 1.100 miles. Secretary Heath, who is a director in this railroad and vice presi dent of the development eompanv, which is part of the systsem, will join Mr. Kerens in New York, where the gentlemen Interested will meet for the purpose of perfecting the organization. Mr. Kerens was enthusiastic over the future of the new railroad. He predicts its early com pletion. A railroad from Salt Lake Citv to Los Ange'tes has long been needed, he says, and would do much toward the de velopment of the country through which it passed.

CIDER BAIT FOR BEAKS. fFrom the New York Sun.J The bears of eastern Maine have eaten plump acorns and sweet apples until they are fat and saucy, perform ing more venturesome deeds from a spirit of frolic than most bears would dare when impelled by hunger. FMlly 0 per cenL of the sapling trees in the woods between Holden and Dedham are marred and scratched by the claws of cubs and old bears who have reached far aloft to test their toe nails and show other bears how tall and strong they are. This scratching of the bark on trees is a bear's way of giving a challenge to a fight. He stands on tiptoe and stretches his forepaws as high as he can, digging his claws deeply into the fresh bark, as mucj as to say that he is the tallest and strongest bear in that vicinity, and if there is any other bear in the neighborhood who doubts the as sertion, here is the cartel of defiance written by claws that can scratch bear's flesh "as well as trees. Another bear sees one of these challenges and at tempts to reach as high as his prede cessor. If he can do so and has a quar relsome disposition, he hunts for his foe. The result of these conflicts la gen erally discouraging to bears who have a short reach, and they are reluctant to place their marks on trees after one or two conflicts. This fall, however, the food has been so plentiful and the young bears have become so fat that not a few cubs have signed their names, to chal lenges that have proved disastrous. It was the knowledge of this practice among bears that induced Reuel Hart to quit making eider and go to bear hunting. Hart had been grinding cider apples all the week, putting the pressed pomace into big tubs and filling them to the chines with sweetened water made from soaking out the contents of molasses hogsheads. Hart will not make cider for anybody on the Sabbath, but if the pomace is foaming and shows signs of spoiling before Monday he will press vinegar all through Sunday while his family is away at church. Last Sat urday night he had twenty tubs of fine pomace, which were as good as 50 gal lons of vinegar if he could press them out in season. On Sunday morning he found every tub frothing and running over from the fermentation that the hot weather had hastened. The family walked to meeting, while the old white horse was taken inside the cider house and worked on the press sweep all day. Hart noticed that every time the sweep went past the window the horse snort ed and refused to go on until persuaded to do so with a whip. As he was in a hurry and needed some excuse for whip ping the animal Hart did not regret this new evidence of shyness. Ten full tubs had been ground out before he took a rest As the horse was white with lather Hart opened the window, allow ing fresh air to blow in. No sooner did the horse get a whiff than he reared, snorted and made a strong pull at his tugs which broke the lever and stoppe d the making of vinegar that day. The horse escaned to the field, where he found plenty of fresh gras3 to console him for his punishment. As Hart was going to the stable ne passed the large tank which held the pomace cider and saw a black animal rolling about on the grass, apparently in an advanced stage of intoxication. Closer inspection showed that the ani mal was a small bear who had made himself drunk upon the frothy fluii which was flowing from the press. Hart killed the bear with a club. Then he argued that if one bear was fool enougn to get drunk on sweetened water ana stale apple juice there were other bears in the woods equally foolish, who could be lured to destruction. The forests were full of bears, who had come out for the apples in nearby orchards. If he could make cider and catch bears at the same time there would be more profit from the two occupations than he could hope to get from cider making alone. Therefore he resolved to turn bear hunter. Hart made a circuit of his cider house, strewing his path handfuls of sweetened pomace. Then he went to the woods to look for bear sins. He found them everywhere, big ones, little ones, and all the way be tween He had lived on his place as boy and man for more than forty years, but had never seen so many scars on the trHart was very familiar with the '""ays of bears. He saw the scratches that had been made by the yearlings, and further on he found spots of blood on the leaves and tufts of hair to indicate that some of the smart young bears had found what they had been seeking. On his way home Hart laughed to himself. It was wicked to be merry on the Sabbath, but the idea which had come to him was so funnv that he couldn't help it. On a shelf in his tool house he found a five pronged instrument of steeL The end of each prong was sharp and crook ed in a shape to do the most scratching with the lea3t labor. It was called a gar den weeder. but Hart was going to put it to other uses. Armed with the weeder he went to the woods and applied it to the trunks of many trees, using it near the ground so as to give the impression that the scratches were made by very small bears. Later Hart skinned the bear which he had killed and dragged the freh and bleeding pelt along the paths where he had marked the trees. "There by Jim!" cried Hart. "When the oid bears see that thicket they'll lay it all to the sassy cubs and go huntiu' for 'em like mad. Now I'll drag this here skin right up to the cider press. That'll fool "em. sure 'nough, or I'll turn Turk and marry four wives, which is more punishment than one man had ought to stand, no matter how big a sinner he is." On Monday morning there were two drunken and irresponsible bears lying by the side of Hart's tank. On Tuesdav there were two more. On Wednesday there was only one bear, but the neighbors had learned of the new way of catching bears, and were on hand in large numbers, drink ing the seething pomace juice and hav ing a very pleasant time with every body. Before noon there were four men and six boys lying around in a beastly state of intoxication. Hart was so angry at this exhibition of depravity that when he went along with an ax to kill the bears he had half a mind to use his weapon on the men, who were no more sensible than the animals. Later he wished he had yielded to the impulse when it came to him, for as soon as the visitors had been able to get up and walk they went and swore out warrants against Hart for keeping intoxicating liquors. The justice lined him $100 and costs for maintaining a nuisance, with $10 additional for making vinegar on the Sabath day. Every two or three days an angry oil bear comes to the back side of Hart's cider house and falls a victim to appe tite but Hart takes little interest in hunting. He will be lucky if he makes enousrh from the sale of skins to pay his fines. Meanwhile he has been ex pelled from the church, and is in con stant danger of a new charge. If he i3 convicted a second time he will have to go to jail for six months. Chronic Rheumatism Cured. Dr. H. B. Hettinger. Indianapolis.

The kidneys filter and purify the blood that is their work. So when your kidneys are weak or out of order, you can understand how quick ly your entire body is affected, and how every organ seems to fail to do its duty. If you are sick or "feel badly," begin taking the famous new discovery. Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, because as soon as your kidneys are well they will help all the other organs to health. A trial will convince anyone.

Mr. Geo. S. Champiln. Ashway. R. I., writes: "When I sent for sample bott'.e of Swamp-Root I had to make water every two or three hours through the day and night. I passed but a very small quantity, but with a scalding and strain ing at the end of each passage. Our bst doctor here prescribed for me, but his medicine did me no good. I then began your sample bottie, and before I got through with it I felt a change. I would not have believed such a small quantity would have done so much, but- b- fore it was g". I ler-rned that our druggist kept ycur SwattiT-Root, and so got a large bot tie for oiie dollar, but actually worth one hundred dollars. I only took one lartre tabiespoonful three times a day. and be fore I ha.1 taken one-haif bottle I was all right and have been since. My urine is as light color as usual. "GEO. S. CHAMPLTN "Ashaway, R. I." Weak and unhealthy kidneys are re sponsible for many kinds of diseases, and if permitted to continue much suf fering with fatal results are sure to follow. Kidney trouble irritates the nerves, makes you dizzy, restless, sleep less and irritable. Makes you pass water often during the day and obliges you to get up many times during tne night.
